trick or treat and Boracay

We went trick or treating today right after my shift at work. I have been awake for 24 hours but it was worth it since my sister and B had a lot of fun. Later, I will be off to beautiful Boracay with some of my coworkers. I hope we will have fun. I really really do.

munimuni # 24

This week has been full of challenges and blessings. Challenges because I've realized that though I am slowly moving on from my past, the future is still affected by what happened in my past. I almost ruined something beautiful but luckily, it was saved. Thank you.

I realized that I need to unlearn some things and that I need to let go. I need to accept that I am beautiful the way that I am, including the extra bulges in my tummy and my thunder thighs. I will never be as thin as I was before but I am also never going to be that naive and silly.

I am turning 28 this Thursday and for that I am thankful. I am thankful because I have a family that loves me and supports me no matter what. I am thankful for Arny who may hate my bratty ways from time to time andmy being selfish but still loves me no matter what. I know that he would defend me at all costs. I am thankful for my friends and for newfound friends. I am thankful that yes, I am financially not in a good place but the fact is, I am still way better off than a lot of people.

Most especially, I am thankful for my son. He gives me strength to survive, to move on, to live. He is the reason why after I cry and break down, I am able to stand again. He is the reason why amidst all the trial I went through, I am still alive. He is my reason. He is my life.

PS. I just had a very simple advanced bday celebration and it was really really nice. My family was there and two important people in my life, Jo and RJ. Thanks guys for making time.

15 reasons to continue

1. i love you
2. never felt this way before
3. im willing to live and die for you
4. im willing to hurt myself just to be with you
5. i want to be with you
6. i need you
7. you need me
8. no one can make you feel the way i do
9. this is just a trial
10. you're still adjusting being with someone who cares for you
11. im patient
12. we're destined for each other
13. we made lots of plans for the 2 of us
14. i accept you for what you are and for what you will be
15. i really, really love you

Ain't that sweet?

deal breakers and no no's

In a relationship, there will always be struggles, hardship, and heartaches. As a friend of mine said to me just recently, you always hurt the one you love. I disagreed at first and then realized, he was right. We always hurt the one we love simply because they love us and we love them. We are vulnerable to each other because we matter.

I guess it is acceptable but then there are things that are simply deal breakers and some that are simply no-no. Everyone has a list and I certainly have mine. So here goes.

Deal breakers:
1) cheating and not feeling sorry at all about it
2) hurting my kid
3) turning criminal on me
4) hurting my family physically

1) being rude to my friends
2) being rude to me
3) hurting me physically
4) forgetting my birthday and our anniversarry
5) spending more time with friends than with me

Do you have the same kind of list?

love consistently

I can never understand people who profess undying love one minute and go all cold the next. I can never understand what goes on in their minds. How can you say you love someone and be all cruel the next? How can you hold someone with tender arms and the next minute hurt them physically with the same arms that hugged them or caressed? How can you kiss someone with so much passion and the next verbally attack them like Hitler did the Jews? How can you say you love someone and yet not tend to their needs, wants, and desires?

Isn't the point of loving someone making them happy? Isn't the point of loving someone making them be better persons and fulfilling their desires? Isn't the point of loving someone glorifying them and teaching them to be the best that they can be? When did it start becoming about you and your wants, regardless if it hurts the person you love? How can that be love? How can that be loving?

Loving is about consistency. Loving is being there for the person, if not physically, then at least emotionally or in spirit. Loving is about compromise. Love is wanting to be with that person not because you cannot imagine life without that person but you can imagine life with that person every single day that you are breathing and living. Love is remembering that she prefers sweet things to salty, that she is dead scared of roaches and yes, it should be worth it to get up from bed at night to kill the fiend than to have her hovering in fear throughout simply because your sleep was more important. Love is sitting in that sofa and watching her try on clothes. After all, she is dressing up for you.

Love is about the small things. Love is a text, a hug, a look, a touch, a kiss. Love is caring enough to say she looks good if she does and telling her she needs to rest if she is tired. Love is cuddling. Love is reading her blog and commenting on things that caught your attention. Love is so many things. A rose, a piece of chocolate, cotton candy, comfortable flat shoes, a pillow, a blanket at night, a feel good movie.

Love is about the big things. Meeting her family, meeting her friends, making an effort to get along with people she likes. Love is about going with her to places she wants to go to and not being "obliged" to do so. Love is about enjoying strolls in the park no matter how cheesy it may seem. Love is about hanging out even when you're sleepy and knowing when to go home to actually sleep. Love is making her feel desired when she feels undesirable. Love is appreciating her quirks and eccentricities. Love is dancing in a coffee shop if the moment hits.

Love is the two of you. It is about making plans and sticking to it. Love means breaking up is not an option unless it is one of your deal breakers. Love means going through the bitchiness, grumpiness, bratinella moments, insensitivity, and the like. Love means accepting flaws and helping the other overcome it. Love means you have a joker and someone who can't take jokes and together, they fit rather well. Love is many things.

Love is about arguments. Love is about fighting and making up. Love is about growing together and growing old with each other. Love is about making memories. Love is about cherishing times together and missing each other when you're apart. Love is about running wild with each other and supporting your passions.

Love is you. Love is me. Love is us.

I wonder if I will ever have this kind of love?

to write or not to write ....

Wifely Steps is hosting a contest everyone ... Toni and is giving away Moleskin Notebooks (me want one, two, three ... ALL!) All you need to do is answer one very simple question.

What would you write in your moleskin?

I would write my thoughts, thoughts on life, thoughts on what is going on around the world, about the people that I love, the people that I don't love. I would write my ideas and how I can turn those ideas into reality. I would write about my love for writing ... the poems in my head that is struggling to get out. I would write about things that no one would ever write about. I would write about love, passion, anger, hate, tears, and pain.

I would write everything that I can write.

YM Status

The moment I go online on YM, I always check to see who is online among my friends and then I check to see their status message. Much like facebook status, YM status says a lot about what is going on with a person. It helps me know if my friend is happy or not, if there is something bothering her.

I normally respond to YM status messages. It's an icebreaker; something to keep the ball rolling. Do you agree with me?

munimuni # 23

Looking back on the weekend, I can say that I had a pretty good one. I got to spend time with people that I love, meet some new people, and build new bridges that I hope to keep. It feels good to be accepted into a clique and I hope that there will be many more get togethers of the like.

I was also able to dabble into my scrapbooks though for some reason, my heart was not into it. I yearn for the time when I'd have my own room with my own desk (a big one) where I can just spread my materials and be able to create without thinking of the space.

I was also able to spend quality time with B and even Kianna. It feels good to be needed and I know that they both need me.

I am blessed because ...
  • B is with me and will always be with me
  • my family is healthy
  • friends that love me
  • someone who loves me and will not give me up no matter what
  • people who cater to my collection addiction
  • work that is doing pretty well
  • and because I really look good in pictures. Lol!

what my name means ...

You are a seeker of knowledge, and you have learned many things in your life. You are also a keeper of knowledge - meaning you don't spill secrets or spread gossip. People sometimes think you're snobby or aloof, but you're just too deep in thought to pay attention to them.

You are usually the best at everything ... you strive for perfection. You are confident, authoritative, and aggressive. You have the classic “Type A” personality.

You are a seeker. You often find yourself restless - and you have a lot of questions about life.
You tend to travel often, to fairly random locations. You're most comfortable when you're far away from home. You are quite passionate and easily tempted. Your impulses sometimes get you into trouble.

You are truly an original person. You have amazing ideas, and the power to carry them out. Success comes rather easily for you... especially in business and academia. Some people find you to be selfish and a bit overbearing. You're a strong person.

You are a free spirit, and you resent anyone who tries to fence you in. You are unpredictable, adventurous, and always a little surprising. You may miss out by not settling down, but you're too busy having fun to care.
You are friendly, charming, and warm. You get along with almost everyone. You work hard not to rock the boat. Your easy going attitude brings people together. At times, you can be a little flaky and irresponsible. But for the important things, you pull it together.

You are very intuitive and wise. You understand the world better than most people. You also have a very active imagination. You often get carried away with your thoughts. You are prone to a little paranoia and jealousy. You sometimes go overboard in interpreting signals.

sisters forever

This is me with my little big sister, Yvonne. I call her that because she's really something ... only 5'1 in height but a spitfire. She's feeling a bit lost right now but I know that soon, she will find herself and be whole again. Till then, heads up Sis!

the one who won my heart

They said that should two people remain steadfast and hold on to each other, no one can break their love. The thing is, it has to be both. When one lets go, its a downward route to the toilet.

I swore I’d let nobody in
Not that way again
I’d fixed it so they won’t stand a chance
But you lessened the distance
I think you knew what this could be
You never gave up reaching for me

Because you hold me up so high
Give yourself with no condition
Because you guide me
When I’m stumbling in the dark
You hear what’s deep inside
When I need you there to listen
You’re the one who won my heart

And it’s still a mystery
What you see in me
Coz you know I’ve never been an open book
But maybe I’m changing
Just a little less true
There’s not a question
I owe it to you

And I know you keep it safe
I trust in you that way
To keep with your possession
Every moment everyday

meet me halfway

This book is written
For those who are Searching
For those who are Holding
And especially
For those who are Remembering
All of us are born with the need to share
our lives with someone. During the years
the fulfillment of this need can be the cause
of constant concern and occasional pain.
For it can't be fulfilled by one person
reaching, but only when two are willing
to meet halfway.
I've never met you
And yet I know you
At least I know much about you
I know you need food
When you are hungry
I know you need shelter
To protect you from the elements
I know you need things to do
To keep you sane
And I know that especially
You need someone
I can't say that I am that Someone
But I am Someone
And if you choose to turn away
Then I guess
We'll just never know
We should do everything
Within reason
To save a good relationship
But if we are constantly
Trying to save it
It's probably
Not a good relationship
It's a delicate situation
When two people come together
And one needs a friend
While the other needs a lover
and unless they have the wisdom
To communicate with each other
One will have no friend
The other will have no lover
Love is an Opportunity
An Opportunity to give of one's self
And receive from another
An Opportunity for two
To equal one
And like all opportunities
We never know
When Love might come
So we must learn
Not to try to force it
But just to be ready
When it comes
As I lay beside you
And sleep has closed your eyes
Our bodies still warm
From the loving
I reach out and touch your face
Stroke your hair
And once more
Kiss you gently
For in a World
That seems intent
On "Making Love"
I find it necessary
To spend a few moments
"Knowing Love"
Sometimes we have something
Without truly knowing
What we have
Sometimes we hold something
without knowing completely
What we hold
sometimes we are given something
Without fully appreciating
What we are given
But that knowledge usually comes
When we realize
What we have lost
The conversation mentioned your name
and someone asked
If I knew you
Looking away
I thought of the times
I had held you -
Sharing your laughter
Knowing your tears
and then without explanation
You were gone
I looked back
To where they were waiting for and answer
And then said softly -
I thought I did"
I can live with the idea
That we are merely actors
Playing a part
But I do wish
Whoever is writing my script
Would learn to use
A few more Happy Endings

random thoughts # 5

I hope that sommeday, someone will say this to me. I've always been obsessive about my hips and thighs because they're big. I look at it sometimes and think they look just fine but there are days that I wish I could chop it.

I agree with this. I'm so glad to have people who listen to me. Though at times, you do end up having no one to talk to ... in the middle of the night, in a deserted alley, standing in the middle of a crowded room ... and your pet comes to mind. All those talks I had with my cat when I first got my heart broken surely helped me. Thanks cat!

munimuni # 22

This weekend was very fulfilling for me. I got to meet up with an old old friend of mine whom I have not seen for 4 years and we hanged out. He also got to meet someone special to me and it went pretty well. I got to talk to my Mom and sort my plans in life. Afterwards, I was able to rest pretty well. Made up for all the lack of sleep I had during the workdays.

Sunday was pretty eventful. I was supposed to be B's nanny but as luck would have it, I was invited to model for a funshoot. So off we went to UP Diliman and had more than 5 sets of pics taken. It was very exciting since we would have shoots in the middle of the street, at the jeepney stop, steps of the school, in an open field, and in an abandoned building. My heels were digging a hole in the soft earth but we continued. This is, I believe, the most fun I've had in a photoshoot.

I have souvenirs though. I counted 15 mosquiot bites on my legs. Lol!

I am blessed. I may have problems financially and some other things but I am blessed. I have people who love me (you know who you are peepz) and people who value me and know my worth. I have B. I am blessed.

of loving and letting go

They say that you haven't lived if you haven't loved. They say that you haven't loved if you haven't had your heart broken. They say that you have not lived a full life until you learn to love once again.

I truly believe in these words. I truly believe that it is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all. But the pain of losing, it kills you. It leaves a hollow feeling inside you. And you wonder, when will I be okay? Will I ever be okay? Will I learn to love again; to trust again? I know that I can love once more, I don't know if I can trust again.

How do you go back to believing that someone out there, somewhere, there is that one person who will not hurt you intentionally? Somewhere out there, there is that one person who will love you and accept you no matter what? How do you put your heart out for someone to just hurt and trust that they will not hurt you; that they will not trample on your heart and beat it to a thousand pieces?

Tell me. I want to know.

as long as you don't let go

This is a layout of my hand holding my son's hand. As long as he never lets go ... I'll never let go. Come to think of it, even if he does, I'll still be there, holding on.

if it's over, it's over

Some people are glutton for punishment. I know I was one before. I'm so happy to say that I no longer am. When it's over, its over people. Stop trying to make things work when there really isn't anything left.

When its hanging by a thread, time to cut it. There's really no point. It will snap anyway.

I don't want to be your friend

I don't wanna see your face
I don't wanna hear your name
I don't wanna thing
Just stay away baby
Don't wanna know if you're alright
Or what you're doin' with your life
Don't wanna hear you say you'll just stay in touch baby
I'll get by just fine
And if you're goin' then darlin'
Goodbye, goodbye

Don't call me in the middle of the night no more
Don't expect me to be there
Don't think that it will be the way it was before
Don't think that I care
I'm not over you yet
And I don't wanna be your friend

I'll forget we ever met
I'll forget I ever let
Ever let you into this heart of mine baby
You just gotta let me be
You gotta keep away from me
'Cause all I want is just to be free from you baby
Don't you come around
And say you still care about me
Just go now, go now

Don't call me in the middle of the night no more
Don't expect me to be there
Don't think that it will be the way it was before
Don't think that I care
I'm not over you yet
And I don't wanna be your friend

You take it casually, baby it's killing me
Goodbye, goodbye
