Life's lessons in a year...

Before the year 2007 started, I was watching the movie "Rent". I liked the movie but never in my wildest dreams thought that I could also be given an opportunity to experience a year full of Seasons of Love.

Yes, this is an EMO post so I am giving straight laced people out there a warning! hahaha...

There are a lot of lessons to be learned and a lot of catching up to do. First off, I learned the not so subtle differences between "I Like You.", "Love you" and "I Love You". I am turning 30 next year and I am still at age 13 in terms of this. Sometimes I think, I am too old for this. But better be 30, rather than 40 right? :)

Trust, now that's something new. My friends know, that I have strong ESP. Sometimes the perky one asks the question in her head and after thinking it, I will answer it. I thought it was spoken out loud but it was all in her head.

I can sometimes read minds especially that of my friends and family. This runs in my family I guess. My mom is scary. There were times when she'll have dinner ready when I get home and laid out is the ulam I was craving for. I didn't tell her, it's just there. The table arrangement the exact thing I had in my mind while I was on the bus.

So, what will you do if you know you have ESP and you have a hunch that's something is amiss? Of course, jealousy to the max. An emotion I have never encounterd before. My friends tell me that I should trust the perky one but oh my gosh, I just wish I don't have such faith in my ESP or wish that I don't have one.

Baby steps, baby steps, one day at a time.... life wouldn't be much fun if we don't have our quirks... hahaha :)

So, how will you measure a year in a life? How about love :)

AMEN?

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.

Baby boom

The first time we settled here in Melbourne we got to know a lot of fellow Pinoys who are living on a different environment. We joined them in making Australia our second home. In each gathering, we try to get to know them better and reconnect.

We didn't know how it happened. But after 2 years, suddenly each couple had their own babies. Don't get me wrong, babies are cute but it was just surprising to note that parties suddenly turn into an event similar to family reunions back home.

Instead of blood relatives, you get to see friends and their kids grown before your eyes. It's not the gray hair that makes me feel old.  It's the babies and kids that are now walking and developing into little adults.

I can't complain. For some reason, it is good for now, to look and enjoy kids from afar. It's fun to carry them for a few minutes compared to living with a baby 24/7. It must be hard. I really commend couples with kids and having to work for a living at th…
Change is a must

I saw this post from a friend and I completely agree with this one.

"Why do we go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And then people see you differently. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving"

We long for home when we are away and we get to realize how happy little moments, celebrations were. When you come home, you enjoy each moment with magnified happiness proportionate to the amount of time you were gone. You also are more thankful of the people who matter the most. It's realizing their value from afar.

This is what life taught me and I am grateful.

AMEN? Amen!
