If a (former) broken heart could speak

1 Comment

“Anyone who has gone through the agony of losing someone he/she loves so much will still wish against all odds to have that love back again.

But sometimes a love lost is a love gone forever…

No amount of hope can bring back to life a relationship that just died a natural death. Set yourself free, let your heart spread its wings and fly. Remember, it may rain for 40 days and 40 nights, but still it will not rain forever. One day the pouring will stop and there will be plenty of branches where you can find rest. One of these is where you will build your nest and star all over again. It’s never too late.

You may not find love and lost it but, when love dies, you never die with it. You cannot be a redeemer all your life. The best way to weigh a relationship is through the test of fire. You cannot be a sober with your mistake forever. We all fail and make wrong decisions but our blunders are not meant to bury us deep in misery but to teach us the valued lessons of life.

Loving is always a learning process. With love we learn how to care and sacrifice. We learn to share and reach out.  We learn to be unselfish and give more than we can.  Then, when everything doesn’t end well, we learn how it feels like to fail and get hurt.

But learning doesn’t have to end there. After our fall, we strive to get back on our feet and move on. This is where we learn that life does not end where our heartaches begin. There’s no future for a relationship of lies and selfishness It’s true, there is life in love. And yes, there can still be life even after losing love — only if leave the past behind and let your healed heart give you the chance to find yourself again.

There would come a time in our lives when we have a chance to meet someone so nice and beautiful and we just find ourselves getting so intensely attracted to that person. This feeling soon becomes a part of our everyday lives and eventually consumes our thoughts and actions. The sad part of it is when we begin to realize that this person feels nothing more for us than friendship. We star our desperate attempt to get noticed and be closer but in the end our efforts are still unrewarded so we end up being sorry for ourselves. Well, you don’t have to forget someone you love! What you need to learn is how to accept the verdict of reality without being bitter nor sorry for yourself. You would be better off giving that dedication and love to someone more deserving — who would love you the way you wanted to be loved.

Don’t let your heart run your life. Be sensible and let your mind speak for itself. Listen not only to your feelings but to reason as well. Always remember that if you lose someone today, it means someone better is coming tomorrow. If you lose someone, it does not mean that you failed in love. Cry (if you have to). Just make sure that those tears would wash away the hurt and bitterness that the past left you with.

Let go of yesterday and let love find its way back to you.  And when it does, pray that it may be the love that will stay and last a lifetime.

A woman on the rebound could easily fall for sweeping emotions and be made falsely believe that she finally stumbled upon the right person, when what she just found is only someone to cover up for the love she lost. A man who makes a promise with words and not with actions may never live up to fulfill them, remember that.

It’s true that love can wait forever but it is crazy to stubbornly hope for someone who feel doesn’t even care or understand how you feel. You deserve to be happy not in the arms of a person who keeps you waiting  but in the arms of someone who will take you now and love you forever.

If loving a person who is attached to someone else is a crime, then, maybe, many of us would have been jailed long before we realize what its consequences could have been. Loving someone is never a sin. It’s what people do out of love that sometimes makes it all wrong. The selfish desire to want that person is what makes it a sin. Don’t think only of your feeling because real love do not have a place for selfish people.

When there is love, there are always sacrifices. When we love someone, we never easily give up on that person. Even if we get hurt badly, we always try to find a way to ease the pain and learn to understand and forgive. Loving too much doesn’t hurt. its when we expect this love to be reciprocated that we begin to seek approval and acceptance of the things we have done and when we are taken for granted and rejected, we curse the very same love that we once freely and happily offered.

Don’t waste your time waiting for someone who never really cared about how you have felt. Open your heart again and give yourself a chance to fins the man the man who would make loving worth the pain and the sacrifice. Just like anything else, our love grows weak and dies, if not taken cared of. It can keep up with pain only to a certain extent. Beyond that, it withers without any hope of recovery and soon dies.

God wakes us in the midst of a storm to teach us a lesson. He takes away people we love so we can learn to value love itself. He makes us cry so hard so we can see clearly when we open our eyes. He makes us bitter so we can realize that there is no genuine happiness if we think only of our own needs and not of others.

Relationships built on jealousy and selfishness are doomed from the very beginning. Most of us cry endlessly over things that could have been but never will be.

God allows us to experience pain to make us stronger and better persons. He will see us through the most trying and difficult times in our lives and only if we put our trust in Him can we learn to find joy in our tears and happiness in our sorrows.

In many failed relationships, separation comes as inevitable but moving on always proves to be twice as difficult as letting go. Sometimes, our choice to hold on is beyond the control of circumstances. Letting go is a decision that can never be dictated to us. It is a resolution we make to ourselves. Acceptance is the key to a new beginning and time the healer of all wounds. Even if storm casts its fearful shadow, there will always be light after our darkness and loneliest moments. There is always hope for those who believe. There is always a chance for those who try.

Losing someone we love may not be a loss at all but blessing in disguise because someone even more deserving is yet to come.

There is nothing wrong in expressing our feelings to someone we love, but we must always be sensitive to the signals that tell us when to rationalize and be sensible enough.

There would really come a time in our lives when we would fall for someone who wouldn’t be as interested as we are because his attention is focused on someone else. There are many times when we love but don’t get love in return. There are times when the sign ahead says stop but we still stubbornly head on.

We would say our love is unconditional. But if it really is, then we should never feel bad. But why do we get frustrated when love turns sour? Because we still subconsciously seek acceptance and assurance from the people we care about.

Remember, the success of a relationship lies not only in the beauty of its beginning but in its consistency. Make a choice not on impulse but decision based on a healthy balance of mind and heart.

Being in love can be the most wonderful thing we could experience BUT if the feeling begins to consume our whole beings, then we have to stop and let our minds (not our hearts) dictate our actions. Only when we learn to accept our fate as well as understand the meaning of our failures can we truly go on with life. — without looking back and crying over to the things that could have been but will never be…” – Anonymous

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for my blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 4,600 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 8 years to get that many views.

Watch this and feel how blessed you are!

Every time I feel that the whole world turned its back to me, I watched this video and I feel blessed immediately (and amazingly). I haven’t met him, but God, he changed my life! T_T If there would be a person I really wanna meet personally, it would be him. Watch the video below and be inspired.

Part  1:

Despite all of lacking arms and legs, you’ll admire Nick Vujicic for his optimism in life. He is living a wonderful life because he chose to live in that way.

Part 2:

“If I fail and I give up, do you think I going to get up? NO.”

“For as long as I try, there’s that chance of me getting up.”

“It’s not the end until you have given up.”

Part 3:

“If you cannot get a miracle then be a miracle to other people”

“Life is worth living when you find your purpose.”

Part 4:

“I love you. Its unconditional love”

Part 5:

I wanna hug him soooooo.oooooo tight. T_T I can feel his amazing and true heart.

This man is now happily married to a very beautiful woman named Kanae. He said, ” I might not have a hand to hold my wife’s hand, but I have a heart to hold her’s”. He is my inspiration, Nick Vujicic.

And Oh, by the way. He does not only inspire other people through talking. He is a singer as well. And yes, I cried when I saw this MTV. “Something More” by Nick Vujicic:

Anong impluwensya nga ba mayroon si Vice Ganda?

Leave a comment

 Sa panahon ngayon  hindi kaila ang kasikatang tinatamasa ni Jose Marie Viceral o  mas kilala bilang Vice Ganda.

Suki na yata siya sa larangan ng Comedy maging sa telebisyon man o sa comedy bars. Sa katunayan, araw-araw siyang nakikita sa telebisyon — Monday–Saturday sa It’s Showtime kung saan siya ay permanenteng hurado (at hindi kaila na dito siya lubusang namayagpag) at tuwing Sunday naman sa kaniyang sariling show na Gandang Gabi Vice (GGV) na binansagan ng trending capital of the Philippines. Maging ang naiiba niyang galaw gaya ng ‘T-rex’ dance at ‘Ostrich’ walk ay ginagaya ng mga tao ngayon.

At sino pa ba ang hindi nakakaalam ng Super Bass Dance Craze na pinasikat niya?

Ikaw na nagbabasa nito, umamin ka, minsan (kung hindi man palagian) ka ng nautas sa tawa sa tuwing babanat si Vice ng kaniyang mga naiibang pagbibiro. Kaso, sabi nang ilan, ang pamamaraan daw ni Vice Ganda ng pagpapatawa ay sa pamamagitan ng pambabara na minsan nang nagiging offensive.  Sabi nga, haters gonna hate but lovers gonna love him/her more ^__^

Kaya, kahit ganoon, hinahangaan ko ang mabilis niyang mag-isip para makapang-joke at talaga nga namang nakakatawa. 😀 haha. Minsan nga, kahit anong badtrip ko, pag nag-joke siya sa Showtime, napapangiti pa rin ako. (Salamat Vice at nag-exist ka) At lalo naman akong nautas sa pelikulang Praybeyt Benjamin. Ang tawa ko eh —- sagad talaga. haha.

Sa pagyabong ng kaniyang karera bilang komedyante, sumabay rito ang pag-usbong nang naiibang ugali nang, kung aking babansagan, eh modern society.


Ex 1: (dumating si Juan sa bahay ni Pedro)

Pedro: Oh, nariyan ka na pala Juan.

Juan: Ay wala pa. Picture ko lang ‘to. Picture! Tsk

Ex 2: (Bihis na bihis si Nena, asawa ni Juan)

Juan: Oh bihis ka. Sasama ka ba sa birthday-han?

Nena: Ay hindiii-hindi! Nagbihis lang ako para maporma sa bahay! Tsk.

Marami pa ang mga halimbawang ito. Maging ikaw na nagbabasa nito, sigurado akong may kaniya-kaniyang version din nang pambabara. At kahit yong kausap mo’y hindi patatalo sa pambabara.

Ang impluwensiya ni Vice Ganda sa kaniyang pananalita at naiibang pagbibiro ang dahilan kung bakit ang mga hindi nambabara noon ay natututo nang mambara ngayon at ‘yong mga hindi nababara noon ay madalas na nababara ngayon — na tipong kahit seryoso na yong sinasabi mo, may angle pa rin na mababara.


Ako: Anong oras ka uwi?

Siya: Malamang pagkatapos ng office hours. Alangang umuwi ako nang hindi pa 5:00pm. Eh di na-undertime ako!

Ako: Tsk. Eh bakit, pede namang 5:30 pm ka umuwi kahit 5:00 labas na tayo.

Siya: Eh bakit 5:30 pm pa kung pede naman exact 5:00?

*Office hours: 8:00am-5:00pm

Ano nga bang mayroon si Vice Ganda at naging ganito ang society natin? Siguro nga’y malakas lamang ang kaniyang impluwensiya o hatak sa masa. Ikaw sa tingin mo, ano?

But, oh well, ‘yong impluwensiya naman niya eh isa lamang sa mga patunay na iba ang powers ng hatak ng mga public figures. Lalong lalo na kung sikat at natatangi ang entertainer na ‘yon. Talagang gagayahin ng masa. At tunay na maaapektuhan niya ang bawat kaugalian ng publiko.

Maraming nagmamahal kay Vice Ganda, alam ko ‘yon. At isa ako sa mga taong ‘yon. I love him/her(?) with all that I am. 🙂 100% proven.

To Vice Ganda: Thank you for making me smile always. I wish you continued success for your career! God bless you! 🙂

Sabi nga ni Kris DP, I wrote this with due respect.

A closer look to the personality of a #Leo

Leave a comment

TAGOS — halos lahat ng tweets ng @Xstrology sa twitter (go and follow), eh wagas ang tama sa pagka-bulls eye sa buong pagkatao ko. So here’s the compilation of that account’s tweets about a Leo (and a bit of my reaction.hehe).

  • #Leo‘s are fighters for lovers. — true.
  • #Leo‘s are probably the most loving and caring out of all the signs, but do them wrong and they’ll do the same to you x10. — oh well. As they say, ‘mabuti akong kaibigan, pero napakasamang kaaway.’
  • The party doesn’t start until a #Leo arrives. — uhm, 0.O. beg to disagree! haha
  • #Leo wants to feel special and loves attention. — not only us. All of us. Lahat tayo! 🙂
  • #Leo‘s are very loving and caring but make no mistake, you don’t wanna get on their bad side! —perfect teh?! lol
  • #Leo is all the words you can think of about being a leader but it doesn’t mean they don’t have soft side. They do love, laugh & cry too. — thumbs up! hoho
  • #Leo‘s do have soft hearts even for being one of the fiercest among the signs. — fragile heart to be exact.
  • #Leo Key Characteristic: Creativity — creative? err. No! (now I starting to doubt if I am really a Leo.lol)
  • If you’re taking a #Leo out to eat for a date, don’t even think about fast food. #failunless its McDonalds ^__^
  • #Leo‘s are the best listeners, which make them great problem solvers. — correct!
  • A #Leo has already killed you 3 times in their head when you pissed them off. — now, dare to mess with us? xD
  • #Leo’s need more love than most signs. — see. So give us love 😀
  • A true #Leo will honor and protect whom they love with their own life. — even if it means sacrificing our own life.
  • #Leo‘s have a huge heart, they are the most generous sign. — isang malaking check ng red ballpen!

Madami pa ‘to actually. I just chose few of them who appear on my timeline which struck me the most. Anyone na naka-relate dito? 🙂

PS: Leo (July 23-August 22) (Leo.svg) is the fifth astrological sign of the zodiac, originating from the constellation of Leo. It spans the Zodiac between the 120th and 149th degree of celestial longitude. In astrology, Leo is considered to be a “masculine”, positive (extrovert) sign. It is also considered a fire sign and is one of four fixed signsruled by the Sun. source: wikipedia.com

Namangha ako sa ganda ng simbahan sa municipal ng Ibaan, Batangas. Kahit remote talaga ang nasabing lugar ay kapansin-pansin pa rin ang ganda at naiibang arkitekto ng simbahan nito.

Dahil unang beses ko sa simbahang ito, ginawa ko ang pinaniniwalaang tradisyon na matutupad daw ang iyong kahilingan kung magsisindi ka ng kandila. Kaagad kong nasilayan ang tirikan ng kandila sapagkat nasa gawing bukana lamang ito.

Makukulay ang mga kandila na nakatirik dito. Nang mapalingon ako sa gawing likuran ng aking pinasukan, napag-alaman ko na ang bawat kulay pala ay may sinisimbolong mithiin ng bawat nagtirik nito.

Mapapansing puno ang rack ng yellow candle (thanksgiving)

Wala nang kandila para sa pag-ibig..red (love/friendship)

Wala nang kandila para sa pag-ibig..red (love/friendship)

Closer look sa candle rack..

Nalungkot ako————

Ibig sabihin kasi nito, mas marami pa ang humihiling na umayos sana ang kanilang buahy pag-ibig ngunit hindi ba pumasok sa kanilang mga dasal na buhay pag-ibig dapat sa Diyos ang unahin at para gawin yon, dapat tayong magpasalamat sa lahat-lahat ng bagay na mayroon tayo kasi lahat nang nangyayari sa buhay natin is according to His will…

PS: Infairness, marami ngang love life ang problema. *rotfl* Dont worry kapatid, ‘wag hanapin ang pagibig, ito’y darating sayo.’
