Don’t be afraid.

As I was surfing the net the morning of July 13th, I saw this.

THIS. This quote got me thinking deep. It’s very puzzling at one look but if you would look deeper into the meaning… what it basically tells us is:

GO OUT THERE AND ACHIEVE THINGS!

DON’T BE AFRAID.


In life, we must have a goal, a dream, an objective to succeed and be happy; to have a direction; to have a meaningful life. And we must not just have ’em, we must work hard to reach them; to achieve them. If we want something, we don’t just sit and wait to have it..we must strive to have it.

Yes, there may be trials and obstacles along the way. But this does not mean that we would not try and we would just let all our heart’s desires go. Yes, life could be scary at times, but if we would not take that big step, nothing would happen to us.

Life. It’s a long and winding road. Nothing comes easy. But once you get what you want, you will really be satisfied. That’s the beauty of life. Once we reach that goal, that dream, we would have the joy of saying.

Hey I made it! It was all worth it. 🙂

Love, huh?

What is LOVE?

Love, they say, is a wonderful feeling…

…but what if you fell in love with the wrong person?

So many girls fall in love with the wrong guy, simply because the wrong guy usually says all the right things…

I mean why would guys even say stuff or do things that they don’t actually mean?

My suggestion? Never get too attached to anyone because…

Well…

I have something to say….

BE CAREFUL. DON”T BE TOO ATTACHED *if you’re not too sure…

ATTACHMENTS lead to->EXPECTATIONS lead to->DISAPPOINTMENTS

” The one who can make you smile the easiest can also shatter your heart the fastest”

Every girl just wants a guy who would truly love her and no one else. One who could be really honest with her. Someone she could trust. I guess that guy doesn’t exist anymore. How discouraging…

Kaya yang love love na yan, think not just once or twice bago pasukin…but we don’t actually get to control our hearts right? Oh well, be ready to get hurt. Coz love? It isn’t loud 9.

Heartbreaks

H-E-A-R-T-B-R-E-A-K-S

A friend just shared something to me…

In heartbreaks, God gives us 3 opportunities:

  1. An opportunity to be strong
  2. An opportunity to know what your love truly is
  3. An opportunity to understand that nothing is perfect in our world, especially in love

——————————————————————————————————————

Heartbreaks…It’s God’s way of making us realize that He’s saving us from the wrong one.

Be strong. He has good plans for us. He’s still busy writing your love story.

I LOVE YOU, eh?

Ang pag-ibig di parang cellphone, pag naluma papalitan

Ang pag-ibig di parang damit, pag may bagong uso papalitan

Kung sabihin kong mahal kita

Yan ang totoo sinta

Wag na wag kang magdududa

Hindi kita binobola

This is an excerpt from Yeng Constantino’s song, entitled Pag-ibig.


Sabi nga ni Vice Ganda:

‘I love you’. Sinasabi lang yan sa taong MAHAL mo, hindi sa GUSTO mo lang. Magkaiba yun oh: spelling pa lang. Meaning pa kaya.

Ang ‘I love you’ kasi sacred phrase yan eh! Di mo basta sinasabi. You have to mean it when you say it. Coz it’s like making a promise sa pinagsasabihan mo.

But some people choose to break one’s heart tas parang walang pakialam.. Oh well, may mga ganun pala talagang tao… :)))
