Some Lessons on Love

I wish love will last forever...
I will hold on to every moment I have with you...
I am counting on time not to take you away from me...
From now on and forever, I will cherish the love you gave me.

1. It is a perfect feeling when you love and you are loved in return.

2. Always trust your instinct.

3. Man are like hunters, they get excited and challenged when they earned you in a hard way. Men  get bored when you easily succumb to them. They will lose interest on you  after they get what they want easily.

4. If you want to have a happy and long lasting relationship, get to know  and love yourself first. And love will follow...

5. Remember that you don't have to please anyone. You will get tired of doing it and end up unhappy.

6. Sometimes you need to let go of the person to see if he is willing to win you back.  Others also need to let go in order to find themselves. Or you just need to let go because it is not going to work.

7. When you are in love, everything seems possible. But know that possibility is just a word, and change is a permanent thing.

8. When you are in love, your world revolves around that person. Bad thing about this is, you forgot that you also have your own life that you take for granted.

9. I don't understand why some people always love the wrong person. Even if they have been hurt many times and repeatedly, still they like the feeling of being hurt. And that is not love at all (no-no).

10. In life, you also need to say "no" and "stop" when you feel like too much has taken its toll on you.

11. It is hard to let go of someone. But trust me, time will come that you will be fine (even better than you are now).

12. When someone breaks your heart, you never thought that someone can hurt you that way, despite the fact that you have given everything.

13. There is no perfect relationship. And perfect people are just not existing. You have to learn to live with their imperfections to make it work if it is worth saving for .

14. When I was a child, I thought prince charming is real. Now that I am adult, I can't  even find one. This is maybe because, I believe too much in fairy tales of "happily ever after".

15. Love is a mysterious thing. If someone is meant to knock on your door, he will.  And when you open it, you become head over heels, lose you composure and fall hard. Your normal world will become abnormal. This time you don't understand why you laugh, smile, cry and worry about someone -stranger. That butterfly in your tummy explains that it feels right to be with this someone. And it could be love.

16. Don't believe that men don't lie. It is the contrary.

17. I don't know if it is destiny that will keep us together, or choice that will set us apart.

18. Don't trust a man when he says he loves you when he hardly even know you.

19.Don't chase for love, let it chase you.

20. Ever wonder why other girls (not so pretty and sexy) have many suitors? This is because some girls are friendly and not flirty. If you want to be one of the those chased by guys, be yourself (don't pretend) and build up your self-esteem. It takes confidence and wit to attract a man. Also, when you love yourself, people will love you too.

The Long Road to New Discovery (road to Iligan City)

I have a weird feeling when I see a long road. A lot of thoughts are running through my mind when I see one. It scares me sometimes. But When I see a map, globe and itinerary , I feel like traveling. And traveling alone for me is something that is scary yet fun and of course- adventure! Many people love to travel and I am one of the many people who will save money just to travel and to give myself a reward of excitement and fun. You see traveling will give you a new feeling of confidence, relief and freshness.  But I have to admit that when you travel alone, there is always the fear of the unknown at the same time, the feeling of gaiety. 

So, here we are with the map. Let's begin to make some history. What place am I going to visit? So many to think but one thing is for sure, I want to try land trip; but of course, I still prefer fast, comfortable and cheaper means of transportation. I will have to try both plane and bus. I just have to bring backpack, cellphone, map and wallet. That's all! And I can savor this moment.

Seeing the vast sky reminds me of how big my dreams are. I feel like I can just dream whatever I want. It is free and you are the boss in your own creative imagination. 

And this is the moment I have been waiting to do in my entire life: to travel land trip. You see from the look of it, I am so excited with what my naked eyes can see and discover. I long to do this and hold on to the moment when your soul can  have a break and have a kitkat.

And my trip starts here:

Oh, I simply love to see the panoramic view of the vast field of rice and corn. I love to see the hardworking people who toil the  field just to make a living. I love to see the carabaos helping their owners. 

You know why I love the road signs? Sometimes, when i look at it, I feel like it's telling me something about my life. Like I need to stop if I am going too fast and when it's a red signal. To go when it's a green signal, and U-turn when I need to go back and pack myself to where I started. Sometimes, we need to follow all of these instructions and directions  to minimize mistakes that we have committed repeatedly.

This nipa Hut reminds me of how simple life can be. I realized that God will provide everything we need. We don't need to have a big house if it is not a home. What we need is  a home and a family, and we can live in simplicity but full of love and harmony.

When my journey ends, I am simply amazed of what my naked eyes have seen and discovered. I thank God for the safe trip and whispered for more blessings to come.

After a long journey, my stomach deserves the indulgence of a fine dinner.

After a delightful dinner, I deserve a hot bath or a bubble bath in a Jacuzzi. Then, a warm spa of Shiatsu will do good to pacify my aching muscles, so I can have a good night sleep. And tomorrow is another day of adventure and fun. But I won't and should not forget to pray. It was a wonderful trip! I love you God!
