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"!

-AMEN!

P.S.

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 :)

A good ending...

At last, there is already a resolution to the settingherfree saga. It took the writer a long time to end it... honestly, I think it's a work of fiction, crafted before valentine's day, to give couple-less individuals a boo-hoo-hoo....

It's just too good to be true... my theory is that it's a creative writing student's thesis or something...

The writer is good... and he has a good imagination. I posted a comment... hope he won't delete it....

Update: He did delete it! So, it's really too good to be true. (Ba't ko sya inaaway? HAHAHA!) I should really get a life... AMEN!

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.

Aside …
