Love is a question we have always attempted to answer in more than one-way. This only shows that it is quite impossible to grasp and comprehend the totality of its being.But we try don't we?We try and find out by getting hurt. We try and find out.
When you enter a relationship, when you commit yourself, you must bear in mind that you are also sharing a part of yourself to a stranger who by mere chance or destined fate you happen to like and love.In doing so, you take the risk.He is a different person that is why you shouldn't expect him to be like you. To posess the same thoughts, to own the same emotions.You love him because he is he and not because he is you. This being so you learn to accept him in his totality as a person.Growth is brought about by your differences, which in one way or another cultivate the relationship.It is important to remember that trust is a vital element of any relationship. Unconditional trust.No ifs, no buts.
When you love, honestly love, then you must be willing to sacrifice. There are times when hurt goes deep, when the pain is almost unbearable, when you are about to give up.But loving is not giving up easily.It is being there when all has been done. When there is very little strength left.When it is too much to stand.Loving is trusting.Loving is letting be.
Nobody promised you a garden of rose. But you are a promise. Get the best out of life. Love and get hurt.Get hurt and learn.Learn and love again.It is a cycle of being. Experience the cycle.Experience love.LOVE AND LIVE.
Everything you need to know is in there somewhere. The Golden Rule and love and basic sanitation. Ecology and politics and equality and sane living. Take any of those items and extrapolate it into sophisticated adult terms and apply it to your family life or your work or your government or your world and it holds true and clear and firm. Think what a better world it would be if all-the whole world-had cookies and milk about three o'clock every afternoon and then lay down with our blankies for a nap. Or if all governments had a basic policy to always put thing back where they found them and to clean up their own mess. And it is still true, no matter how old you are-when you go out into the world, it is best to hold hands and stick together.

The Paradox of our Time by George Carlin
The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers; wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less; we buy more but enjoy less We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time; we have more degrees, but less sense; more knowledge, but less judgment; more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness. We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.
We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often. We've learned how to make a living, but not a life, we've added years to life not life to years. We've been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor.
We conquered outer space but not inner space.
We've done larger things, but not better things.
We've cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul.
We've conquered the atom, but not our prejudice.
We write more, but learn less.
We plan more, but accomplish less.
We've learned to rush, but not to wait.
We build more computers to hold more information to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less.
These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion; big men and small character; steep profits and shallow relationships.
These are the days of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses but broken homes. These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throw-away morality, one-night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer to quiet, to kill. It is a time when there is much in the show window and nothing in the stock room.
A time when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time when you can choose either to share this insight, or to just hit delete.
Remember, spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever.
Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave your side.
Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn't cost a cent.
Remember, to say "I Love you" to your partner and your loved ones, but most of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you.
Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment, for some day, that person will not be there again.
Give time to Love, give time to speak, give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind.

This island where I live now is a thing of beauty.They call it undiscovered paradise.Well, I wanted to post here pictures depicting what this island has to offer.
In the map, it looks like just a speck atop one of the main islands of the Visayas,in the Philippines.
Ahhhh...I think I got one. We are always present on the list whenever there's a typhoon.Mostly if we are not under signal number 1, it will be 2 or 3 or worse the center of the typhoon.In fact in my 8years of existing here,I have lost count of the number of typhoon hits that we have had.
This is our Pier ...... On the way to Naval...Going to the market...
Here are some pictures I've got from the web.But I will be posting my own pics any day soon.
it's been a while since my last post.
I miss blogging so much.
It's not that I've been away physically, I was just self-searching.
But the outcome of my search has done me good.
I realized that much has changed within me.
Before I was such a jealous person and very selfish.I was so short tempered and I could not contain my negative emotions . I fall short in every expectations my family has of me.
But now, family life has made me a better person.
I am not the jealous person anymore maybe because I have outgrown my insecurities.
I have learned to be selfless instead of selfish. I am able to control my tempers and I don't dwell anymore on negative thoughts and emotions. I have learned to look at the positive side of life and my friends said it reflects on my face.
It is my goal never to forget to pray each day for His guidance that I might do well each day of my life. Afterall, we will pass this way only once.
