Photo Challenge: Persons in my Life (Photo 5)

This is my last picture with my grandparents, taken 3 years ago at my 18th birthday. Now, all three of them are up there in heaven. I miss them. Now that they’re not here, holidays won’t be the same anymore. 😦

Happy Birthday to my dear lola Temeng! You’re always remembered. We miss you.


What Happens After What Was “Supposed To Be”

“You may not see it today or tomorrow, but you will look back in a few years and be absolutely perplexed and awed by how every little thing added up and brought you somewhere wonderful– or where you always wanted to be. You will be grateful that things didn’t work out the way you once wanted them to.”

We all have a strange penchant for holding on to what we think should be in our lives, even when it clearly is not what’s going to work out. Try to lessen that grip and it’s like we lose all these ideas about who we are: we torture ourselves with what we think “should be.” And we’re a bit wishy washy with the idea of believing in fate anyway– sometimes we’re all about life delivering to us what it will, but when something terrible shows up at our door… not so much.

And most of us live somewhere in the middle. “ Sounds like a wrestling match, I say. “A wrestling match.” He laughs. “Yes, you could describe life that way.” So which side wins, I ask? “Which side wins?” He smiles at me, the crinkled eyes, the crooked teeth. “Love wins. Love always wins.”

Why You Can’t Give Up On Finding Love

“‘Cause someday, I promise you, we’ll find ours too.” 😉

Maybe you had your fair share of break-ups.

Break-ups that had you hurting inside more than you could ever imagine. Break-ups where you knew the last chapter was coming soon but you continue lingering just to hold onto its comfort. And break-ups that had you thinking why on earth you had to go through it in the first place when it’s just another production that’s going to end.

Maybe the relationship was a few weeks or more than eleven years going and you thought the idea of forever was near. That guy you met at the bookstore or the girl you had a connection with at the bar was the one, the forever you had in mind. And you dreamt of countless dreams for him or her to be yours and when they did become yours, you tried every possible way to move mountains for them.
