I do not believe that the meaning of life is a puzzle to be solved.
Life is. I am. Anything might happen.
And I believe I may invest my life with meaning.
The uncertainty is a blessing in disguise.
If I were absolutely certain about all things, I would spend my life in anxious misery, fearful of losing my way. But since everything and anything are always possible, the miraculous is always nearby and wonders shall never, ever cease.
—robert fulghum, from the book Maybe (maybe not)
I know who you are.
I want to apologized and at the same time, I want to thank you for bringing out the best and the worst in me.
What is meant to be will always find its way, not too early nor too late.
Always on time.
Someday, when I looked back on this I know it will bring smile to my face because it happened.
As for now, I wish you….never existed.
My life as a whole is a DREAM COME TRUE.
My first dream was to become a nun.
I entered the convent at aged 30, but got out after 2 years.
My life as a whole is an ADVENTURE.
A once in a lifetime experienced with the local tribe of Mindoro, knowing their culture and traditions in the mountain for a month. A life without electricity, an overflowing supply of water, and you can touch the sky by raising up your hands.
My life as a whole is MAGICAL.
Being love and be loved in return with the man of my dreams. Though, people does really change.
My life as a whole is a MYSTERY.
Who would have thought that I will be reconnected with my first love after 25 years. The man that I thought was disappeared on this earth, came back to life to process forgiveness and finally to forget.
My life as a whole is UNPREDICTABLE.
I guess, It would not become a “life” if I knew what will going to happen.
And sometimes, I thank GOD for what went wrong.

Writings of my daughter, aged 8.
There you are again
Always on time
Never miss a day
With your warm greetings
With your contagious smile
With your sincere eyes
With your neatly ironed clothes
Asking what I want
Serving my favorite tea
Because you’re the waiter from the cafe.
I am confused
That every time I prayed
“Thy will be done”
The people I thought
And said they loved me
Last night, while doing the dishes my 4 years old daughter was talking to me.
Daughter : Mom, was dad just sleeping over with us?
Me : Why do you ask?
Daughter : Because you already drove him away from our house. He just here because he misses us, his daughters.
Me : (Speechless)….

But they say the words they didn’t mean,
And do the things they don’t want to do.”
I wish I am a princess...sleeping waiting for a kiss from a prince to wake me up Instead of waking up by the loud voice of my mother . I wish I am a princess...getting ready for the ball with a beautiful ballgown and a glass slipper Instead of wearing an old fashioned dress and a rubber slipper. I wish I am a princess...with a golden long hair letting it down will appear my prince Instead of letting down my hair appear a silver gray hair. I wish I am a princess...with a beautiful singing voice can walked on land for the sake of love Instead of seeing the man I loved walking away from me. I wish I am a princess... waiting for a prince to rescue me. But I am not a princess And my life is not a fairytale.
I was surprise when I received a tag from Jay Kaushal. Whom I admired for his poetry and philosophical thoughts.
It’s so ironic that in one of my previous post I mentioned that I’m not good at answering questions, but I guess there’s no harm in trying for noticing and getting to know more of myself.
