Life oh Life oh Life oh Life doo doo doo doo...

“Every person around you is going to hurt you at some point in time.
But it’s up to you to decide what’s important...
...the pain or the person.”

Above is a text message I’ve received from a classmate of mine (Elementary). Though not that appealing, the message itself gave me a slap of reality straight to my face. Especially now with some untoward incidents and happenings that were uncalled for, I should be realizing who my true friends are, those who have hurt me and those whom I’ve hurt also.
 It is a reality that people we love are gonna hurt us, one way or the other. But what’s important is on how we react on the pain, whether we decide that it is more important than the person who gave us the latter. In my humble opinion, I can say that the person committing the mistake is more important than the mistake he/she has committed (unless it is pride that runs within your system). Though it may be difficult at first, getting through with it will be easier than you thought it will be. It just needs a lot of adapting and mind setting mantras to make it (and also time).
At times like these, what you need is not a time of your own but a time with HIM. Ask of his grace to give you the strength and willpower to overcome things because he will not fail you. Though we have failed him many times he will never in any manner disregard you. Just ask with a faithful heart and what you asked will be given to you in full. Be faithful, because God is.
            Life itself gives us problems we thought we could not bear. Those that we think we’re not capable of making through and things that we just cannot handle alone. Like for instance, things you thought are impossible to surface but have happened already without your knowing it. These occurrences are needed for us to grow in a more mature way. Things happen for a reason, even the bad ones.
            I’m not perfect, so us others. But in my imperfections I see the possibility of simply creating a standard that resembles that to a perfect one. My flawed life taught me that people do commit mistakes sometimes and it’s a matter of understanding that we find such acts as acceptable, because we also experience the same stuff. What we need is a heart that forgives not a heart that resents.
            I’ve been hurting myself for more than years now, because I wanted it (Okay, so that was before). But now, I’ve already freed myself from the walls that I’ve been building since then. What I have now is a heart that sees beyond the mistakes. I’ve been changed and that I can say is for the better.
            I might as well say “Sorry for my being stupid for dwelling in the past more often. But now I’ve been mature enough to just shrug the whole idea and start anew with what we already have. We’ve been hurting ourselves a lot. What we need is a time for reconciliation and a lot of coping up. You ready with it? Because I am.”

Why YOU should apply for a Mercury Drug Suki card NOW!

I am not a fan of discount cards, BEFORE. I find these things space eaters in my wallet (where eventually there is a lot of free space for now). Whenever the cashier asks me for any discount card I would just say I don’t have any and I have no plan of owning one yet. And when the middle-aged cashier insists I apply for one because the queue is not long and literally she has all the time in the world to answer my questions and whatnot the skeptic in me kindly declines the offer and pays mypurchase.
In retrospect, I believe I applied for an SM advantage card years ago and forgot to replace the temporary card given to me in exchange for the original one. And that’s it. That’s how far my fancying for discount cards will take me.
But now a change of heart happened. I now love discount cards! And I’m planning to apply and collect as many cards as I could possibly own.
Why? Because times are difficult these days. The prices of commodities have skyrocketed plus the taxes and other (economics) st…

LSS: Feelings (Up Dharma Down)

I have so many emo times, these are moments of solitude and alone time. Whenever I feel the longing to be alone and lonely I listen to songs that would exude the kind of emotion I want at that particular moment (specifically loneliness and exclusion). Talking about emotional songs, I stumbled upon one by Up Dharma Down. After listening to their latest album “Capacities” I was caught up by one of the songs from the album. Feelings is by far the most creative and emotional English song I’ve heard from UDD. I mean Oo, Tadhana and Indak are my favorite Filipino UDD songs but a song written in English which elicits the same emotions brought by the previous tracks is something, right? The song is well-crafted, with lyrics so poetically poignant you’ll end up pressing the REPEAT button (which I did for so many times).

If the lyrics are already good enough, wait until you’re captivated by Armi’s soothing voice. Her voice has that commanding presence which you can listen to all day for the rest…

The ball pen ANALOGY

Remember your favorite ball pen back in your high school days? Be it panda, uni, hbw, the high-priced pilot or even the scented ones; we were once attached to these writing materials. 
There were times when the unexpected happens - your two-day old pilot ball pen fell from your arm chair and when you tested it your penmanship was already broken. It's devastating to say the least; 2 days seemed too short. Then, you told yourself to move on, find another ball pen that is cheaper but will last you a quarter or so. You bought a new hbw pen, its smooth feel on any paper sends chills to your bones. The feeling is exhilarating. A new found intimacy gives you life. After 3 weeks of being useful with its ink already an inch from the ball point you dropped it after taking an exam and eventually lost it. It's heart-wrenching, knowing that you can use the remaining ink all to yourself, without the fear of dropping it because you have used most of its potential. The ink is darker and your p…
