We experienced life through the eyes of a child, everything would be magical and extraordinary. Let our curiosity, adventure, and wonder of life never end.

Be Proud Of Who You Are

Photo by: Badong

Come with no wrapping or pretty pink bows.
I am who I am from my head to my toes.

I tend to get loud when speaking my mind.
Even a little crazy some of the time.

I’m not a size 5 and don’t care to be.
You can be you and I can be me.

I try to stay strong when pain knocks me down.
And the times that I cry is when no one’s around.

To err is human or so that’s what they say.
Well, tell me who’s perfect anyway.

AGE DOESN’T MATTER

img_3315

This picture that I posted to my Facebook created a little discussion within our group. Well, my father also has spoken about my short-short. I'm in the middle with these two young and vibrant girls.  I think I am 15 years older than them, to be exact.

There are some people who are bitter enough to think that we should belong to a group based on our age, which I think is really nonsense. I believe, if you don’t have the list of friends that are older and younger than you, then you’ll be missing something good in this life.

Well, I have friends who are older and younger than me.  I have an oldie, but goodie and young, but lots of fun. Oldies are full of experiences and bring certain wisdom to me while the youngsters offer involvement in the current situations and create new ideas, plus, they will release your energy, bring you to life that you have almost forgotten.

So, I don't see any problems with this, having “all sorts of people" give me balance. I enjoyed being with them because I always have the liberty to learn something vast and new. I don't care if some people will criticize me that I am "trying"to be young, what the heck! Don't break the fun, yo!

And I'm proud of my age too because God gave me this long to live.  And to my basher, please don't think you are younger than me, I can still be able to wear my "short-short" than you.

I am 38 years old but young at heart.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SHOUT TO HEAVEN

19665345_337409273355643_4427308960371812375_n

On the road again, going places that I’ve never been. Seeing things that I may never see again. Go rest high on that mountain, go and shout to heaven, thank you Lord, your work on earth is miraculously done. 

DO IT NOW

The sky may be clear today, but it might be cloudy tomorrow.

Yesterday is no longer yours, so do whatever you can for today.

If you wish to say something kind, say it now, there might not be a tomorrow.

The person you love won’t always be next to you.

If you wish to show an affection, show it now.

Do it now before they disappear.

Can I Carry You?

Presentation11

I guess that I can hold you
one more time before you grow
and tell you that I love you
so that you will always know.

Please let me tie your shoe again.
One day you’ll tie your own.
And when you think back to this time
I hope it’s love I’ve shown.

Can I help you put your coat on?
Can I please cut up your meat?
Can I pull you in the wagon?
Can I pick you out a treat?

One day you might just care for me,
so let me care for you.
I want to be a part
of every little thing you do.

Tonight could I please wash your hair?
Can I put toys in the bath?
Can I help you count your small ten toes
before I teach you math?

Before you join a baseball team
can I pitch you one more ball?
And one more time can I stand near
to make sure you don’t fall?

Let’s take another space-ship ride
Up to the Planet Zoor.
Before our Cardboard Rocket
doesn’t fit us anymore.

Please let me help you up the hill.
while you’re still too small to climb.
And let me read you stories
while you’re young and have the time.

I know the day will come
when you will do these things alone.
Will you recall the shoulder rides
and all the balls we’ve thrown?

I want you to grow stronger
than your Dad could ever be.
And when you find success
there will be no soul more proud than me.

So will you let me carry you?
One day you’ll walk alone.
I cannot bear to miss one day
from now until you’ve grown.

DON’T WORRY, BE HAPPY.

In every life, we have some trouble.

Aint got no place to lay your head, somebody came and took your bed.

The landlord says your rent is late, he may have to litigate.

Aint got no cash, ain’t got no style, ain’t got no girl to make you smile.

Don’t worry, be happy. Don’t worry about a thing, cause every little thing is gonna be alright.

Rise up this morning, smiled with the risin’ sun. Three little birds sit by my doorstep, singin’ sweet songs of melodies pure and true, sayin’,

<

p style=”text-align:justify;”>Don’t worry ’bout a thing,
‘Cause every little thing is gonna be alright.

Don’t worry, be happy.

Happy Mother’s day to all Moms…

Who has never been cherished by their husband
Taken for granted by their kids.
Who has never been on a date on this day.
Those who never received any words of appreciation, flowers or gifts.

Happy Mother’s day to all Moms…

Who are far from their children.
Who lost their daughter or son.
Who suffers from sickness, depression or loneliness.
Those who have never been treated with love.

Happy Mother’s day to all women…

Who has the heart to become a mom.
Who represented more than a mom.
Who are still trying to become a good mom.
And to all of us mother who works is never done.

YES, I DO!

Someone proposed to me!

I don’t know why this kid suddenly grab the plastic flowers and kneel down in front of me. I was smiling and said yes, I do. I bet he was watching some TV drama and tend to imitate it. Ha-ha. He was so cute. I told him to kneel down for a while so I can take pictures for our cute memory and he listened.

I am ALONE. I am STRONG.

Such a long weekend, she thought. While everybody is planning where to spend the holiday, she doesn’t have any plans at all. Nothing seems to interest her nowadays, everything is repetitive and boring. At times, her mind was being cranky that she have known to the same people as if no one is new, nothing is to be excited about, she feels that she’s been trapped to same traces and faces. This feeling is not new to her, it always comes and goes.

Two days passed, she never received any invitations from her friends. No one bothered also to organize a getaway, well, she was the one who usually does the arrangement and her friends will just go with her plans, so how can she wait? For once, she doesn’t want to take the lead, she just likes to follow the trail.

When she feels her body is throbbing from sleeping, she got up, took a bath and went out.  She can’t stand it anymore. She has to be thankful for the free day and good weather. She has to do things even when being alone, enjoy it and never expected anyone to give her delight.

She ended the day with a little gratifying. She was able to go out, wander around and dine alone. Well, eating by herself outside is a challenge to her. While everyone is sharing the food together, it makes her a little bit lonely that she has no one to share, as much as possible, she doesn’t dine alone in the public, takeout is her ultimate comfort zone. But that day, she made it without feeling isolated in the middle of the crowds.

She realized that not all the time you can rely on to anyone. They said friends are always there to cheer you up, but these friends have their own life too. They have their issues to be solved, and days to relish by their own, they have kids and husband to take care of, they have boyfriends to please, they have work to finish, and same with her, they might suffer the same tedium she felt and just waiting for something new to happen. The world is not just revolving around her.

So be strong when this moment comes, because no one can help you, but yourself.  There is nothing wrong to be alone sometimes, it is the chance you can date and hang out with our own because there are so much to discover, learn and to love.

MAD without YOU

“Sometimes you are mad at me. Sometimes I’m mad at you.  But we still enjoy being the perfect mother-daughter pair because we would go mad, without each other.”
