Funny how much my life changed in just a year. Last summer, everything was different! Wow. It was the exact opposite. Every night I prayed for things to go my way, because I know deep inside that someday, it will happen. Well I guess my prayers were answered. I’m happy now and I know greater things are about to happen. I just have to continue praying and thanking Him for everything He’s been giving me. He really answers our prayers. We just have to be patient and persistent.
It’s in the little things you do that makes her fall in love with you even more each day. The way you talk, the way you laugh, the way you pout your lips just so she wouldn’t be able to resist you..she finds all this adorable. You may get all grumpy and moody just like a child who couldn’t get his mom to buy him a toy, but she still loves you despite all that. You’re just adorable in whatever you do and she hates you for being too cute and irresistible, even when you’re mad. She could watch you do your usual stuff without getting bored, ‘cause you never get her bored. You’re interesting in every way. She could even watch you getting pissed by boredom and still be interesting.
She doesn’t know why she finds happiness in watching you do the things you usually do. Maybe it’s in your cluelessness of the things around you that she finds adorable. She just loves everything about you, and no matter what you do, she’s sure that she sees you like no one else ever could.
A minute could change your life forever. This statement may sound impossible at first, but if you stop and think about it, it does make sense. A minute may seem like a short period of time for something significant to happen, but what occurs within a minute could be the start of all the best and worst moments in one’s life.
A lot can happen within a minute. An old man might get hit by a car. A girl who is about to deliver a speech might faint because of nervousness. A child might get kidnapped. A woman might get raped. These events could lead to another set of events which would become the basis as to why these particular people behave as such. For instance, a girl could get kissed by the guy she has been in love with for so long, and it could change her life forever. She could end up getting married with that same guy, have kids with him, and spend the rest of eternity with the man of her dreams. Everything happened with just one kiss. Everything happened because of that one minute which began to change the way how things are going. If she had not let that kiss happen, then she could not have ended up with that guy. She might eventually decide to forget about him, then she could find somebody else and fall in love with another guy again. But because she had not let that kiss happen, she would eventually think about the “what ifs” and start having regrets. At the end of the day, she would think of all the possible things that could have happened if she allowed that guy to kiss her. She could end up living her life miserably because of that thing she has been wanting to experience in so long, but was not able to let it happen.
In my own experience, I could say that I’ve wasted a lot of time letting all the good opportunities pass. I admit, I’m not a good decision maker, since I would always have trouble balancing what my mind says and what my heart desires. Because of thinking and weighing all the pros and cons of every decision too much, I would always end up letting a good opportunity pass. Sometimes I think I should have loosened up a little bit. Maybe I should have been a bit more carefree, and not be too scared to commit mistakes, since having a fear to commit mistakes often results to the person putting restraints on his own actions. Maybe this is what happened to me. Maybe I should have done what my heart desires the most, and not let anybody interfere with what I really wanted to do. Maybe I should have moved away from my comfort zone and started doing something new. Life is full of choices. Life is deciding whether to take the long, rocky and muddy road, or the shorter, smoother road with less twists and turns. It’s deciding whether to take the cab, or ride a bike. It’s deciding whether to wear heels, or wear flats. It’s deciding whether to study, or to watch a movie. It’s deciding whether to give up, or to hold on and keep on fighting.
Time is something we cannot take back. Every minute counts. Therefore, we must all learn to value it in the sense that we must live life to the fullest and be careful in making decisions, since these decisions could affect not only us, but the people around us as well. We should learn to make every second worthwhile, grab every opportunity that comes our way so that we won’t have to think about “regrets” in case we have let an opportunity pass. In case we fail, we should be brave enough to face the consequences that are brought about by the decisions we made. If you were given a chance to decide on something you would do within a minute that could change your life forever, what would it be?
So I found this in one of my folders. Hihi. I just felt like sharing this. This is my speech for my oral comm subject. We didn’t get to deliver it in front of the class, we just ended up passing the manuscript.
Sometimes we feel like we know everything after all that we’ve been through. We think we understand everything. We think we know the right thing to do in every situation. Life is a continuous journey, a constant battle, and a never-ending pursuit of knowledge and one could never learn enough.
Sometimes it takes just a conversation, humilty, and “I’m sorry” to clear up a misunderstanding. All is well again. :)
So I have to pretend that everything’s okay, ‘cause it’s not a big deal after all, right? I know, it’s not. But the people around us will make it a big deal and it’ll be difficult for me. I wish they would just keep their mouths shut.
Open-minded akong tao. Sana kayo rin. Sana maging sensitive kayo sa mararamdaman ko.
Sometimes I don’t know how some people could manage to live by what others would normally say when it comes to love. Don’t give him everything. Save something for yourself. How do you do that, honestly? If you’re too attached to that person do you still have the control on how much you’re willing to give? All you want is for that person to be happy, so isn’t it normal for you to do everything for him?
THAT feeling when I have so much in mind and I wanted to write about everything that’s in my head right now but I don’t know where to start soooo..yeah. Nevermind. I need a hug now. Like, right now. Oh well. I feel weird. :(
If she walks away, would you chase her because you want her back in your life? Or would you chase her just because you feel the need to?
Before, I never actually knew the real meaning behind what most people would say about the things to consider before entering a relationship. They would say that it’s important to “love yourself first” because it’s the only way you could love somebody else. I did not know back then what it actually meant, ‘cause for me it doesn’t make any sense at all. It’s only now that I’ve realized how important it is to love yourself first, before you let anybody else love you. If you don’t love yourself, then throughout the relationship you’d feel so insecure, feeling as if you’re not even capable of being loved. This could lead to fights, and other complications. You and your significant other may fight one day, then be okay the next. But eventually you’ll realize that most of your fights are centered on your insecurities. It’ll appear as though you’re pushing your lover away, even if you don’t really mean for it to happen at all.
If you don’t love yourself, then how else would you show that you’re capable of being loved? If you don’t love yourself, then who else would?
It’s hard when you’re in a situation in which you don’t know if you still have to fight for it or not. It’s not all about happiness. It’s not all about the feelings. It’s also about knowing what you want and getting what you truly deserve.
