Life Happens

A very wise person who goes by the name John Lennon said - "Life is what happens when we're busy making plans.", we too are swayed and pushed from day to day by fate, destiny or Father Time. We get old by the day and our cells die and try to count down to our last day on earth.

This may sound like a morbid post but this is something I think of lately. I am turning 32 this year and as I look at the past years that zoomed by, I can't help but be proud of what I have become.

This is not pride or my narcissism talking but in my own little way, I have chosen my battles well and fought it through with all my heart. I have made concious decisions and changes in my life that may have been difficult at first but has reaped me so much happiness in the end.

It has been my dream to live a life full of love, happiness and contentment. In my 32nd year, I find that almost all of my dreams came true. It just took a little faith and so much determination but the Lord has been gracious to me and has been given me so much blessings.

If my life will end, I can look back at my life and say that I have fought a good fight. But this is not to say that I have done all I am meant to do in this earth. There's still too much to do, so much to experience. I can't wait for the next half of my life to start.

What can I look forward to tomorrow and the coming years? I can just cross my fingers, pray to the heavens, and muster all of my courage. Since I know, that the best years of my life has just began and I am thrilled to be part of this day, of this century, and of this space.

Ces la vie! :) 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!
