Take chances, take a lot of them. Because honestly, no matter where and whom we end up with, it’ll always end up the way it should be. Our mistake makes us who we are. We learn and grow with each choice we make. Everything is worth it. Say how you feel, always. Be you and be okay with it.
“Everyday is an adventure. And everyday is a chance to show our love and gratitude to people that helped us be the person we are now.”
Yesterday, I woke up with a smile on my face knowing that it will be another great day. The only difference today from yesterday was that, I’m a year older. Yes, hello to adulthood. Hello 20! I can say that my teenage years has brought me a lot of up of downs and I know that there’ll be more to come as I get older. But of course, I’m thankful to God for the 20 fruitful years He has given me. He has given me so many blessings that I could ever think of.
A lot of people remembered my birthday. Birthday greetings came from different parts of the world! How crazy is that? THANK YOU so much. But seriously speaking, I’m really happy that many people appreciate what I do, and I’m also happy to know that I am able to inspire and touch other people’s lives in the simplest way I can.
With all of the birthday greetings, this, the picture below, from Kuya Edward, literally got me into tears. And maybe whenever I start reading it again, I will always cry (HAHA, kiddo). Maybe because I just never really felt that kind of appreciation from any other people. Maybe because he really just made a big impact in my life that I would never forget. Sometimes I toy in the idea of, what if we never met at all? Will all things be the same right now? I’m just really thankful for a person like him in my life. Thank you Kuya Edward for being a teacher, a friend, and most importantly, a FAMILY. I may not be the most expressive person whenever we’re together, and I may always pinch on you or what (laughs), but I know you know, that I’ll always be thankful for you. You know that. Thank you for being the most understanding person, for all the time we’ve spent, and what else? Everything! I will also never forget the things you have taught me so far. I love you, thank you for being part of my life.
And of course, I will also not forget my friends who even exerted effort to do a mini suprise for me! I tell you guys, you succeeded! *chuckles* I spent my whole life making surprises for other people, making them happy, making all the effort… today, I really appreciate what you did and being with me. We may not have been that really close before, but I’m also thankful that I have found you guys. You’ve always been there whenever I’m down. There has been no dull moments with you. I hope that in the years to come, we’ll still be all friends. You know that I’ll be always here whenever you need me. I love you. Thank you for being part of my life.
Also managed to get a trending topic today! Thank you to all of my followers, WORLDWIDE!
AGAIN, to each and everyone who greeted me, you know who you are! THANK YOU.
“When you feel defeated, just push forward and keep going, prove to yourself that you’ll never stay down.”
“SOMETIMES, THE ONLY REASON WHY YOU WON’T LET GO OF WHAT’S MAKING YOU SAD IS BECAUSE IT WAS THE ONLY THING THAT MADE YOU HAPPY.”
Note to self: Be so busy loving your life that you have no time for hate, regret or worry.
I’ve been holding on to this quote for so long. Lately, I have realized that there’s so many other things that are more important rather than being sad, depressed, or lonely.
But sometimes, I say to myself, “It’s okay to be sad” – There’s this thing that I’ve learned when it comes to being said: it’s very easy to be sad. To tell you honestly, there’s many things in the world that can bring you down. It’s a fact. Way too many, actually. However, I also learned another thing about it: you don’t have to stay being sad if you don’t want to.
I know some of you will say, “I don’t want to be sad, but I can’t just really help it.” – It’s true. Sadness is a feeling, a feeling that can come anytime. A feeling that you didn’t even invited to come. But another thing I have realized is that, you don’t always have to follow your feelings. Let it go, and don’t keep it inside you.
And here I am talking about sadness. I’ve been to upset, disappointed, sad, and all other words you can relate to it, lately. Few days ago, I was actually literally crying the whole night, the moment I woke up, and the rest of the day. I just can’t control. I just can’t think right. And I hated myself for doing this. I felt like I was being rejected by one of the most important people to me, a person I look up to, a friend, a brother, a parent, all can you think of that’s wrapped into one. I’m just really not used to this kind of feeling. That feeling when someone important to you, doesn’t even want to talk to you right, when you don’t even know the reason why is that person acting up like that, especially when that person is someone important, a part of your life. I have been texting two of my friends. One of them even went to our house, to see me. The moment she entered my room, all she said was, “What happened to your eyes, Clara? Are you okay? Stop crying… (another friend’s name)’s told me that you were crying since last night…” and I was like, “I’m okay. It’s okay already.” – The moment I stopped crying was the time when that person already started talking to me. This is what I’ve been waiting for, a reason why. It was such a relief when I knew why this person was acting like that… I died a thousand deaths in those two days. It was really hard. But even though, I cried, felt sick and all, it’s okay because I love the person. So much.
Yesterday. I went to the book launch of one of my friends, Marcelo Santos for his book entitled, “Para sa Broken Hearted” – I have been really looking forward in reading this book, and finally, I was able to buy it. But right now, I don’t have much time yet as I am busy with other stuff, especially school. After that, I went to see a movie with my friends. It was a very chill day actually. I was, happy.
Today. It’s a workout day. A time for myself. There’s this thing that happened today that I will not ever forget. And here it goes… I just don’t like it when I’m being nice and friendly and then all of sudden, some anonymous people will send you stuff that you don’t even know that existed. But the issue is, it’s not the post or anything. It’s the way this person talk to me. I was greatly offended. To sum it all up. That’s it. I guess, I shall stop being nice and friendly eh? No, just kidding.
Anyway, I was just stressed and I don’t know what to do first that is why I started writing this blog. Very random indeed. The first blog of the year. Sorry to my dearest readers, I haven’t been posting for months.
To end this post, I just want everyone to know that no matter what you feel, what you do, always remember that GOD is with you. Choose happiness. Easy thing to say, but hard thing to do. Till my next post!
Take chances, take a lot of them. Why? Because honestly, no matter where or who we end up with, it will always end up just the way it should be. Our mistakes makes us who we are. We learn and grow with each choice we make. Everything is worth it. Be you, and be okay with it.
