They said I hit a wrong chord Defied reasons, crossed the unknown Our future, vivid, in others, blurred

People always say that the only constant thing in this world is change. This is somewhat true. I am the kind of person who is too sentimental to throw away something or someone I once grew fond of or adored. I even told a friend that the people I’ve loved remain in my heart no matter what. Whether they left me or betrayed me, there would always be a part of them etched in my soul. Wonderful memories shared with these people would always be a beacon to a day full of hope and positive feelings.
Cheers to our ‘Weekly Quotes To Ponder‘ moment. I am so excited to share my thoughts about the quote above and to read your comments as well. Do you agree that at one point in your life you’ve gone through something or you experienced something that changed you and that no matter what you do, you can never go back to the old you?
I used to think that if someone truly loved us, their feelings won’t change, no matter what. That even infidelity, abandonment, and all other circumstances aren’t enough to ruin that kind of love. That’s how idealistic I am. I received so many hard blows to finally realize that though love never dies, people change. The person who is telling you that they love you with all his heart today may tell you the opposite in the future, who knows? Man is fickle. Emotion can change in a split second. It’s quicker than a blink of an eye that before you knew it, it changed your life forever. I think the most important thing here is, no matter what experiences we go through in this life, we must choose to be a better version of ourselves so that even if you can’t go back to who you were, you won’t regret it and it would surely put a smile on your face.
I have never felt this cold before. It’s as if I am inside a refrigerator waiting to be frozen to death and to meet oblivion. I feel more than numb, the excruciating pain I felt a couple of minutes ago is gone. I fell into a deep slumber. But before my consciousness left me, I finally utter my last prayer, that if ever fate would be kind enough to wake me up, I would be given a chance to find the man of my dreams alone and free.
I ache to see his eyes burn for me, so intense that it could melt my heart in seconds. I want to feel the warmth of his touch, that lingering embrace that makes me feel secure. I would love to see us holding hands in public. Kissing me softly in front of other people. I would like to show the whole world that he is mine and I am his. That our love could outshine even the hotness of the sun.
I never felt safe and warm with someone other than him. Whenever I feel anxious and panicky, I just think of leaning my head on his shoulder or putting my face on his chest while I take a deep breath and everything seems to be alright.
Do you believe that the best love is unexpected? That you just don’t pick someone and cross your fingers that it’ll work out? That love, at first sight, is but a tip of the ice burg? When I talk and notice the way his lips curve when he smiles or the glow in his eyes while he listens to me without batting an eyelash. But of course, love is more of a decision not just feelings. When the other person becomes difficult to deal with and yet you stayed, that’s when you’ll know that it’s love. Genuine love is selfless and full of hope.
This really beats me. Whenever I encounter a place we’ve been, I can’t help but reminisce everything we’ve shared. His smell still lingers in our bed, and even in my head. I crave for his presence now that we’re a thousand miles apart and I doubt if I could ever love this way again.
Spring is drawing near Earth will be filled with cheers Guess it can’t be helped To cherish the memories we’ve shared Everytime this season appears

Nothing beats an unplanned get away. March 14th 2017 marked our youngest son’s third birthday. As always, my children prefer to eat out, play arcades, and enjoy rides in a mall. Out of the blue, we’ve decided (I always involve my children with things like these to make sure they enjoy.) to go on a staycation.
staycation–a vacation spent in one’s home country rather than abroad, or one spent at home and involving day trips to local attractions.
The place we’ve visited is quite far from home and since we don’t own a car we have to endure riding a PUJ (Public Utility Jeep) and a train station to reach our destination. Nevertheless, my children enjoyed the journey and the scenery.
Today, I’d want to express how grateful I am that God allowed us to experience wonderful moments in celebration of our bundle of joy’s third birthday. We, as parents would always find delight in seeing the happiness in our children’s faces much more when they enjoy life and make memories that we could cherish afterwards.
I would like to share this YouTube video I created for our youngest bundle of joy, #hendrixkulit
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank God for His grace in giving my partner the ability to provide us with our needs and wants. I couldn’t be more thankful.
It’s in my nature To find love that is pure Be my own universe Blood that runs through my veins Who’s worthy of all my pain
