Blogs to Love
In the past few days, things have been rough for so many people and I really have no idea how to help each one of them, so I’m doing this blog post.
Waking up one day and realizing that things will never be the same again.
I know that there is no such metaphor for the kind of pain you are in right now. When I look at you, I see frustrations running inside your head, "Why?" "What have I done?" "I thought.." "I never thought..". I know how it felt like not knowing how to end and start the day without someone you’ve been with for a long time. I know how painful it is when you are waiting patiently and hoping for someone that isn’t even going to come.
It will hurt, it will hurt an awful lot because someone matters.
It is okay to cry in the middle of the night and make your pillow all tear-stained. Let those tears water your future happiness. Let the pain be an instrument for endless possibilities because at the end of the day, you are the only who have the choice to that possibility. All of these things will soon become a mosaic that will turn you into something more beautiful. Don’t forget the wonderful memories, but find yourself moving on.
Don’t go through the pain, grow through it.
Release the fears and move. It is okay not to know where, but you don’t need to stay in a certain place that you’ll never stop feeling the pain because emotions, when felt too much, can make someone numb. If you can’t move on for yourself, move on for your future self. And one day, I believe, you will just find yourself not feeling the urge to cry anymore and thanking your decision.
Do not forget, but move on. Do not hold grudges, but let go.
I want you to know that you are loved. May it not be by the sweetest efforts or cold night cuddles but it still a love worth keeping and a love that can heal your torn-up paper heart. There are so many people surrounding you and don’t be afraid to ask for their hand to help you stand again. Believe me, some people will even sit and cry on the floor with you. Keep that kind of love because that can make you stronger.
And one last thing, you know what they say about things happen for a reason? I actually believe in that, and I pray that you do too. You may not know the reason why this happened on the next day or the year after the next, but God is working on your story. Keep the faith. Let this painful story change you.
From the amazing musical scenes down to the talking snowman, frozen’s been the talk of the crowd since last month. If you haven’t seen it yet, you can download it here (promising you guys a good quality). I, too, wasn’t able to watch it on the big screen due to a busy holiday. I only got the chance to catch it last weekend, and I can truly say that it’s one of the best Disney movies I’ve ever seen in my whole life.
These are the life lessons I grasped from the movie:
Since then, I always kept in mind that perilous love stories are always the best. I adored Romeo and Juliet’s unyielding love for each other until to the point of being one against the whole word. I cried to Landon and Jamie’s faith to God and to one another. And believe it or not, my feeble heart always hoped of one for myself too.
And now, growing up, I perceived that struggles are not fun and some thing you will never want once you get there; however, it generates people into something more exquisite and nonchalant. It can break people open, either making them strong willed or afraid of the things yet to come, but in my case, I embraced the former with a bucket full of hope. It came to me briskly; moreover, I know that it is not just there to shatter me, but to get something elsewhere.
However, even with all odds..
I believe in the struggle because I know that this can test us up until it crosses the line. The universe will not do anything, but to show our worst selves and I hope that at the end of that day, we will still be capable of obtaining each other’s flaws.
I believe in the struggle because I finally came to the point of comprehending that the world does not revolve or stop around us. The last chapter of our story will still be up to our own will.
I believe in the struggle not because I dreamed of this, I regretted the delusion since I recognized that it can lead into two ways: winning or losing. The only reason why I loved the struggles implemented in the latter stories is because I knew how they ended.
I believe in the struggle because distance, even with the inevitable pain it holds, can make us consider that it is more than seeing but believing.
I believe in the struggle because I hope that even with the storm taking my destitute soul in all the squalid places it can think of, I will still end up in a safe haven with you.
I am believing in the struggle because I believe in us.
Hello, people! “Something to Remember” blog post is what I thought of making since last December for 2014. So you guys may be asking, what is the purpose of this? (a.) Sometimes, when my creative juices are out, I end up posting a lot of random pictures. I always try my best to eschew from that since I am aiming that my blog will look like some sort of an online diary. I just wish that this will be able to help me to be synced in with my goal: Blogging for myself and not for others’ expectations! (b.) I wanted my blog to be full of memories worth remembering. (c.) I am claiming thatmany changes, victories, adjustments and even hardships will happen this year; moreover, I want my 2014 blog posts to be really detailed. (d.) When I start to make this blog post every weekend, no week will give me an impression like it just passed through like a wind because I’ll have no choice, but to always think of something worth-remembering: even from a stranger’s smile up to the biggest achievements that I will receive.
Also, I just thought that In case time will come that my mind won’t do anything but to malfunction and forget, at least my forever buddy doesn’t have to make a notebook for everything that has happened to my life… I will have my blog ready for all my questions!! Having second thoughts though… I think my future husband making a notebook for me would also be cute and sweet? You always give me high expectations from boys, Nicholas Sparks!
Going back, I will try my very best to work on this “Something To Remember” post every week. Se here’s how my 2nd week of January went:
1. I made a recap video of our last year’s activity for the children who were greatly affected by the Typhoon Yolanda called “100 Smiles for Christmas”. It was shown to the students last Friday after the morning assembly, and everyone who knew that I was the one who made the video gave me flattering compliments. *heart heart*
2. Went to Summit Ridge Tagaytay to check the place and inquire for the graduation ball with Father Gabby, Tita Medz, Jayanne, Ma’am Chato and Sir Louie. We were out during the lunch break, and had coffee after talking with the peeps from Summit Ridge.
3. We had a cheer dance practice yesterday for the incoming Sports Festival on January 20 - 24. It was no-joke really tiring, but the boys always had a reason to make us laugh. I also made new friends from the lower batches. I had so much fun with Bracket C!!
4. After 4 years of being a high school student, I finally got a perfect score in an exam without any help of bonuses or incentives. Super happy!
5. I was able to go shopping last Friday even with all the work I am receiving from school. It makes me feel like I’m still connected with the real world.
6. Our class, St. Hannibal, had our project presentation in Health. It was our first time to make a joke out of our class project. I guess we were all just tired with everything so we went from crazy to C R A Z Y. We still got 85 though, no ragraats.
7. We were able to talk about our future no matter how scary it is.
How about you guys… what are the things worth-remembering on your week?
“They say a good love is one that sits you down, gives you a drink of water, and pats you on top of the head. But I say a good love is one that casts you into the wind, sets you ablaze, makes you burn through the skies and ignite the night like a phoenix; the kind that cuts you loose like a wildfire and you can’t stop running simply because you keep on burning everything that you touch! I say that’s a good love; one that burns and flies, and you run with it!” - C. Joybell C.
1. Hearing a “good job” from the people I look up to
2. Urgent meetings
3. Wrestling with my brothers

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.
