What I live for
Isn’t it crazy that when you look back from a year ago, you realize how different things are now? There are some who left, entered, and stayed in your life. A year ago in this very same day I was in the states with my family and friends, celebrating my 19th birthday. (I clearly remember going to the towns local movie house and watched the last installment of the twilight saga, breaking dawn) Then my friends and I went back home and had a little dinner (Filipino FOOD of course) then some stayed for sleep over. Today I celebrated my birthday by going to church and having a little dinner as well. One thing I can say though is that I’m thankful, thankful to have amazing friends (both from the states and the Philippines) My friends from the states remembered by birthday and greeted me with love (despite the distance between us) and my friends here in the Philippines surprise me with birthday red velvet birthday cupcakes (which is my fave!) Besides from having awesome friends, I also have the best family who is always there with me with every decision I make. SO yes, a year has passed and everything has changed but one thing that remained the same is the love and care my friends and family has for me. So thank you for being a part of my life, a part of who I am, thank you.
There’s nothing wrong about wishing.
When we were kids we wish for candies or toys.
On our teen years we wish for cell phones or laptops.
As we grow older that wish became more practical rather than wishing for something we can get anytime.
We wish to get high scores on SAT exams and get in to the college of our choice. Those wishes will sometimes bring us disappointments.
Some wishes to go on far away places to relax and think about else is there for them, when all their wishes was nothing.
There nothing wrong with wishing although its not guaranteed to come true we still wish and hope that one day that one ultimate wish we have will come true. In fact I believe all wishes do come true if we just keep our head high and have goals to pursue that wish!
Attends Easter Vigil and did the “salubong” as well where large statuses of Mary and Jesus were brought together. Imagining the first reunion of Mary and Jesus after his resurrection.
Attended the mass as well which took a bit longer than the usual 1 hour mass. The two to three hour spent at church just listening to the readers and songs, ill be honest, was a bit boring. However, knowing that the two to threw hour spent in church was not hard enough compare to the sacrifice Jesus did for all of us.
That made me realize that we should not complain about going to church on Sundays due to lock of time and busy lives, because that one hour of dedication to Him or even if its three-five hour of church isn’t enough compare to His sufferings.
(This picture warms my heart. Watching the statuses meet from one side and another, in front of the church made me feel the love Mary had for Jesus and vice versa)
"I’ll never know how much it cost
To see my sin upon that cross
Here I am to worship
Here I am to bow down
Here I am to say that You’re my God
You’re altogether lovely
Altogether wonderful to me”
I’m very thankful to you for giving me a great life. For surrounding me with good people. Most of all I THANK YOU for giving up your life for all of us.
Dedicating this Holy Thursday for you doing a ‘Pabasa’ (ritual, a religious chanting) going to churches for ‘Visita Eglesia’ and doing the stations of the cross will never be enough for what You have done for us all and for that I am grateful.
Thank you God
Smile even if you’re sad,
Love even if your the only one loving
Be happy, never let anything bring you down
Live the life you desire
Today I woke up with the sun shinning down through the window.
No problems whatsoever
Happy to be alive!
Thank you for the life and love. Thank you
I year ago I had plans, a year ago I knew those plans will change everything, a year ago I knew my life will change. A year ago I didn’t know it will be like this. I said goodbye to high school, then months later goodbye to my family and friends to move to my hometown. I knew this move will change everything and it did. It was a big change, somewhat a SAD change. Here I am now meeting new and old friends, living with relatives, and accepting every challenge life has to offer. A year ago at this very moment I was in the living room probably doing homework wrapped with my snuggle while watching TV with my little brother (9pm US TIME 3,26,12) Today, a year after, Im awake early ready to enjoy the summer heat (9am PHILIPPINE TIME 9,26,13).
I’m very thankful for having such friends and I love them so dearly!
People are like refrigerators.
It doesn’t matter if you’re pretty
or have things all over your face,
because what truly matters is
what’s inside you.
this is actually the most meaningful and thoughtful post i have ever seen on tumblr
