This post is about making choices; I feel I have to motivate myself to make that change. It’s tough but I do really have to make that change. Don’t you wish everything goes smoothly in life that all the time, we don’t encounter any setbacks? No problems. Everything is perfect in this world.
Yes, it is very disappointing but it all happens to all of us. Nothing is perfect in this very imperfect world even the lucky ones encounter problems. There will come a time when faced with a dilemma; one has to make a choice – one or two choices. I sometimes flip a coin but only the simple choices I do that. Disappointing, yes, but hey – what can I do? One choice can affect the other choice so I will go with my gut instinct and see what happens so I will motivate myself and move forward.
Yes or No…
If it is meant to be, it will always be for me but like I always said, a bad experience can also be a good one in the long run.
Knowing me, perseverance is my strongest quality and not all people know this. I do not quit. I never give up. I never ever will let it stop me. I do not let one bad experience hinder me from anything under the sun. If I have to dive the sea of uncertainty, I will do it. When the picture doesn’t fit; do not force it.

“The rule is: we cannot really forgive ourselves unless we look at the failure in our past and call it by its right name.”
Lewis B. Smedes – Forgive & Forget: Healing the Hurts We Don’t Deserve
Lately, I have been thinking about my past.
I could have changed a lot of my past mistakes but I cannot rewind so all I need to do is actually, forgive my past and just move forward and make the most of my present life. There is nothing I can do but make the most of what I have today – really!
Everyone wants to change a part of their life so I am not alone.
In the past, I let my past control my past life. I fell into depression and was making emotional decisions about everything. It wasn’t good. Recently, since I came back almost 2 years ago, I started thinking. I cannot live this way anymore. Forgive the past and just let it go. Since then, I became a stronger person inside and out. Worked on my self-esteem and I started believing on my self-worth. Boy, did I rebound to a better person 100 ten-folds.
Life is not easy for everyone including me. I take care of myself and no one takes care of me. I cannot destroy my life and waste my life away. Eventually, I stood up after falling down very hard 2 years ago.
Despite the challenges and trials, I still consider myself very blessed.
Thank you God for everything. You never left my side. You were always there.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

I cannot believe I have not blogged for over a month!
Let me say, I do have the time but my energy is spent between the two, my work and caring for my brother. Not complaining though. Happy at my current job and also, happy that I am able to help my brother and his illness considering the lack of adequate health care in my province. Despite the challenges, trials and tribulations, I still thanked God for all the blessings he had showered me for the past few months.
Yesterday, Cath of Salt for Vanilla stopped by my blog and said hello. She also did a post about me being her inspiration on her current crisis Serendipity and I This post is dedicated to her and I would like to tell her thank you and your welcome. She is a sweet lady and she calls me Ate. Ate is a form of respect for the elders. No, I am not a senior citizen but I am a few years older than her. She is one of the few Filipina followers I have. She has so much talent in cooking – everyone should go check her blog out.
Since its Friday, I would like to give you a little entertainment. The video is in Korean but I totally adore the kid in Gangnam Style – Min-woo Hwang. Am pretty sick of Gangnam Style but the kid, I love him to death. This kid can dance. AMAZING! He will be great one day…
So enjoy and have a Happy Friday and a merry weekend! BTW, Belated Happy Thanksgiving everyone…
I came across this quote earlier today. Things have a way of working out! I find this quote so true. This is all life is about. We might plan and plan about everything in life. We think that all our plans are right for us as of this moment. However, sometimes it does not go exactly how you want it to be. When things go horrible in my life, I first think that wow, that is awful and makes me feel bad about it. Life is not fair (“Self-Pity!” – whine, whine, whine) but truly, things happen for a reason. When you analyzed an event in your life in the long run, you say, “hey, that is not as bad as it is.” For the bad things that go wrong are actually good things that need time and perspective so do not sweat the small things in life as it will eventually workout on your favor or someone else.
Sometimes the most unorthodox things have a way of working out – who knows!
Do you agree with me?
