The Bigger Person...

These past few days, I am reading this book - The Ways of the Peaceful Warrior. I chanced upon a passage that seems to be cliche in terms of self development chuva, but upon further introspection, I realized that this is easier read than done.

"In life, we must not be reactive, we must be active." (or something to that effect)...

How can I do that if ...

"If you're hurt, can you not fight back?" (reactive)
"If you're being manipulated and feel so powerless, will you not push? (reactive)"

It easy to treat others as they will treat you, to give them a dose of their own medicine, but again, you must be the bigger person (figuratively and literally, haha) but I have to keep in mind that we are warriors, we should not be easily swayed by emotions. We all carry extra baggage and there’s a reason why people are that way.

Again, to choose, that's our gift - "to be mediocre and react" or "to be different and ACT"!



If you love someone, you'll move heaven and earth to get that person. I don't believe in mediocrity with regards to love, you fight for it, you bleed for it. If something is less than that, then you go play! hahaha. :) Hope na pareho kayo ng expecations.. hahahah :)

Hello, it's me!

It's been awhile since I have shared something on this space about my thoughts and my life. Well, where do I start? Maybe just like an old good friend, I will try to give you some highlights on the past years when I was not blogging.

The biggest thing that happened to me so far was I got my Australian citizenship. I know right? I know that it may not be a big deal to others but for me, this is something that I have tried to work on for the past 5 years.  My kababayans might say that I am ungrateful, but we cannot discount the fact that with a blue passport from a country like Australia, I can travel to many countries - visa free without immigration officers trying to catch my eye and check if I am planning to do something illegal on their country.

No offense, but every time I stand on the immigration line going into another country, my heart always work double/triple time because I am too anxious to be deported back to my country even if I know that I have the proper visa.

The Lesbian Lifestyle

It's been about eight (8) years since I came out as a lesbian. So much has changed since then. I never in my wildest dream thought that I will be with someone who loves me as much as my partner does and I never realized that I am capable of so much love.

I gained more than 50 pounds. You'll never realize it but the weight creeps in. It seems to be proportional to the amount of happiness you're gaining. Thus, if weight is the price I need to pay for being happy so be it! I would rather be plump and gay than thin and grumpy. :)

All of my friends are straight women and gay guys. I have a few lesbian friends (about 3 I think) and that's it. Not having enough lesbian friends is not a major problem for me since I don't think I fit into the lesbian lifestyle.

1.) I am not a radical feminist.
2.) I don't really think that all men are evil (ok some are but we also have evil women :)).
3.) I like green jokes and other politically incorrect jokes as …
