Perfect Timing

There’s a right place and time for everything. This is a lesson I’ve always struggled with but this has never been more apparent last week.

It’s true what they say. Everything is revealed at the right time and for me, it was a revelation, indeed.

And while it temporarily knocked the wind out of me and after two days of just allowing myself to feel frustrated about it, I’m finally at a place where I have accepted the truth.

It is what it is and I respect and accept it.

I’m also thankful to God for showing me the truth. I am grateful that He allowed me to know it early on, that I didn’t have to invest emotionally in this thing. I’m thankful that He told me when I was ready to receive it.

I’m also grateful for the experience. I am glad that I experienced it, that I had a perfect day, that I felt what it’s like to be taken cared of, to be appreciated, to be fussed about. I’m glad that I met these new and wonderful people, who appear to genuinely like me.

Most of all, I’m grateful that He prepared me for it. Not only did He prepare me for this revelation, I believe that He is also preparing me for better things in my life. He’s preparing me for the thing that I’ve been praying for the last four years.

Basta, I’m thankful.

Surprise!

The Universe surprises you and it hits you hard. The situation in your head is not what it seems all along. Or somewhere along the way, when you thought everything was running smoothly, God tells you that this is not the way to go. Pinatikim ka lang, pinasaya ka lang saglit, pero things are not what they seemed to be.

Akala mo ikaw na. Akala mo ito na. Hindi pala. Iba pala.

But you take comfort in the fact that God’s timing is always perfect. Even when you discover that painful thing, you understand that God’s timing is still perfect. Binigay Nya yung knowledge na yun dahil alam Nya na ready ka na. Alam Nya na kaya mo na tanggapin. And it’s true.

Despite the pain you’re feeling, you know in your heart that God’s love never fails. This is just a minor setback. This is just another bump in your road to forever.

Salamat. Thank you for the memories. It was fun while it lasted.

Letting Go of Your Control

Sometimes the world teaches you to let go of controlling things and to allow others to take charge. It’s hard because I could feel myself resisting. I felt useless because I had nothing to do but it seemed that people just want to take care of everything.

I’m truly grateful. It’s just a weird feeling but I am grateful.

Accept What Is

Sometimes things don’t go your way. Sometimes the people you like don’t like you back. Sometimes the experiences you want to happen don’t. At times like that, all you can do is sigh and accept. Accept that things are what they are, nothing more and nothing less.

Believe

This 20Believe17, I wish that you would:

* Live more. Minsan nakakatakot pero there’s nothing more satisfying than realizing that you were worried over NOTHING. Tsaka pangit yun may regrets ka sa buhay so go lang ng go. Deadma sa sasabihin ng iba. Buhay mo naman yan so wapakels sila.

* Love more: love your life, your work, friends, loved ones. You may get hurt or disappointed at some point but at least, you loved. Better na yun kesa you live an empty and wasted life. Hindi nakaka-cancer ang magmahal pero magkaka-cancer ka sa lungkot at stress.

* Laugh more. Masarap tumawa so surround yourself with happy, positive and supportive people. The quality of your life depends on the kind of people you surround yourself with. Nega people = nega life. Happy people = bonggels life.

* Lastly, believe more. Believe that life is amazing. Believe that you deserve to live a happy life. And believe that God has better things in store for you.

Happy new year! The time to live your best life starts today!

Thankful in the Midst of a Storm

thank

Even when you’re in the middle of the storm, be thankful. Even when you’re in pain, be thankful.

It’s easy to be angry when you’re hurt, when you’re in pain, when you’re lost, when you’re bruised. It’s easy to last out and say, “Why me? I don’t deserve this!” It’s easy to think the great big Universe is being unfair. It’s easy to play the victim.

But this is the time to be thankful to God, to praise Him for molding you to become a better person. Lord, I thank You.

What I Know For Sure

Happiness

You can and you will be happy.

You can and you will smile again.

You can and you will feel alive again.

You can and you will see that life is worth living again.

You can and you will love again.

Not Best Friends

BFF

I am not your best friend and you will never call me your best friend. But I know that I’m the friend closest to your heart, the one you tell your deepest and darkest secrets to. I’m the one you turn to when the going gets really though.

You are not my best friend and I will never call you my best friend. But you will always be the one I turn to for every little success, for every little joy, for every little pain. I often tell you that you can destroy my life with how much information you know about me.

We are not best friends and we will never call each other best friends. But we know every little thing about each other. All the joys, the pains, the hurts, the milestones. We are always present when we need and do not need each other.

We are not best friends and we will never call each other best friends. And we’re both fine with that. In fact, we never really talked about it. We didn’t need to.

Because the label has never been important and it will never be important.

We both know what is and that’s all that matters.
