monday musing ~ Beautiful Madness

Wow, the sequel of Samurai X Live Action film is almost finished and I can’t contain my excitement. I can’t wait to watch the movie and see Kenshin and the whole gang again! I’m certain this will be as amazing as the first one.

Seeing my favorite anime in live action film reminds me of other anime’s I used to watch ages ago. Growing up, anime has been a huge part of my life. They were source of happiness then. They were source of some realizations and enlightenment.

on my shelf ~ By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept…

“Waiting is painful. Forgetting is painful. But not knowing which to do is the worst kind of suffering.”

                                        – Paulo Coelho’s “By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept”

This book is a journey. A poetic journey of rediscovering lost faith and love. It is a heartwarming rendezvous with one’s own demons and inner monsters, an encounter we all have faced but rarely acknowledged, therefore rarely won. A battle between you and the other. The other who I knew so much but never even recognized its presence until i read about it in this book. It was the other who make things complicated, difficult and impossible. And I think everybody, at one point in their lives, experienced and fought the said war and courageous are those who tried and won the battle. Reading this book was like a window opened for me to see life in a new perspective, a new understanding that gave life more meaning…

tuesday tunes ~ Your Winter by Sister Hazel

Why do you choose your pain
If you only knew how much I love you, love you
And I won’t be your winter
And I won’t be anyone’s excuse to cry
We can be forgiven
I will be here…

– Your Winter by Sister Hazel

 

I just discovered this beautiful song and I’m really loving it! The lyrics is great, the music is fantastic and the vocalist’s voice is so awesome. Been listening to Sister Hazel for quite some time and that voice always fascinates me. Their songs are amazing and this particular song is one of my favorites. Just sharing. 😉

thursday thought ~ just be.

Being happy doesn’t mean you have to complicate things. Oftentimes, we sabotage our own happiness by thinking too much, by asking too many and by digging too deeply. Sometimes we just have to sit awhile, take a deep breath and just be.

wednesday’s who ~ Darren Hayes

One of the very first persons who expressed his deepest sympathies to Filipino people after the tragic Yolanda was Darren Hayes. Yes, I am talking about the vocalist of Savage Garden, the one I am truly, madly, deeply in love with. 🙂 And I guess I love him more now if that’s even possible.

tuesday tunes ~ Affirmation by Savage Garden

I believe the sun should never set upon an argument
I believe we place our happiness in other people’s hands
I believe that junk food tastes so good because it’s bad for you
I believe your parents did the best job they knew how to do
I believe that beauty magazines promote low self esteem
I believe I’m loved when I’m completely by myself alone…

– Affirmation by Savage Garden

 

 

This song never fails to inspire me. i hope you take a moment to listen to Darren Hayes and Daniel Jones and you might learn a thing or two.

monday musing ~ a new beginning

November 8, last year, I woke up with the news that Matchbox20 won’t be able to come here in the Philippines as scheduled for their highly anticipated concert. The culprit? A typhoon named Yolanda (Haiyan). I was actually saddened by that piece of news only to realize the following days that it would be the least of my concerns for Yolanda is making more devastating news!

an introduction…

2014 for me is a new start, a new beginning. It is the year of making dreams come true and living the life I always wanted. I decided that this year will be all about creating myself and being the best me, for I’ve been the worst me for quite some time now. 🙂 Well, it basically means opening up to possibilities, facing new challenges, stretching myself and leaving my comfort zone. It’s all about saying “yes” to opportunities and embracing the unknown. It’s all about trusting His plans and not shying away from them. It’s all about being courageous and understanding that life is about being uncomfortable and learning from it.

I want this year to be a productive one, and this blog is an attempt to make it so. It is an attempt to have a life with a purpose, a life with a destination. So let’s make the best of everything that may come our way and be the best person we always imagined we could be…
