For me, one of the most wonderful feelings I’ve felt in this world is knowing someone could take me, which includes everything about me especially my flaws. I always find pleasure in expressing mine inside and out without fear that others won’t approve. There is no greater freedom but to do the things that could make us happy, right?

meehmeeh

By the way, this is for our 34th Weekly Quotes To Ponder moment. Just sharing my thoughts about the quote above. I would be more delighted if you’d share yours! 

TANKA 14: There You’ll Be

Heart as cold as snow
Footprints telling where you’d go
Blinding sunlight, cool breeze
Wipes away my tears
Everywhere I am, there you’ll be

It’s been awhile since I joined a weekly TANKA challenge and I missed it so badly. I’m glad I now have a chance to catch up. You may also want to read and write, for instructions, kindly click here. Have a great one!

Weekly Quotes To Ponder 32

img1480572454309.jpg

 

Have you ever been away with your family? When you’re used to spend your every day life with someone, do things with that person in a regular basis or he/she’s part of your daily routine, it’s not that easy to adjust or do stuffs without him/her  around anymore. It takes a lot of getting  used to and sometimes you’d even ask yourself if  it is real, the longing seems unbearable that at the back of your mind you’re convincing yourself that everything’s just a dream and all you need to do is wake up.

After living together for more than twelve years, my partner decided to work overseas to give us a better life and to prepare for our children’s future. It’s been about more than three years now and yet, I’m still struggling. I don’t think I can even get used to living without his physical presence especially when I’m seeing our children. Good thing he never fail to check on us on Facebook and he calls us regularly via Skype. It makes our distance closer and the longing quite bearable (still trying to convince myself here).

If we can afford to live a better life and prepare a bright future for our children without him going abroad and be away from us here in our own homeland, I’m pretty sure he’d prefer to stay beside me and raise our children together. I must say that he’s a lot more hands on with caring to our children than I am. He never fail to show how thoughtful and sweet he could be. Here’s hoping he’d bear in his mind that whenever he felt too worn out, he could always turn to us for moral support.

Monday Morning Melts: That Thing Called Love

mmm-3

She is a nocturnal person. She prefers to do things in the middle of the night when the world is fast asleep. While it is true that she hates distractions, she is also fond of hearing the sound of silence – the snore, the creek in the bed, and even someone who talk while sleeping. Odd isn’t it? But that’s the way she is.

He seldom had a sound sleep, he could hardly bring himself to sleep, to begin with. And when he does, he can wake up so easily even with the sound of one’s breath beside him. This is also odd, at least with her opinion.

Imagine what would happen when these two individuals live in one roof, sharing one bed. Miss insomniac would definitely have a hard time to move a muscle if she wants him to enjoy the luxury of good night sleep. And yet, she was able to do that for more than twelve years because of that thing called love.

In love, the sky is the limit. It is not only a feeling, but it is also actually more of a decision. When one is willing to give way and give up his/her own comfort for the sake of others without expecting anything in return. When one is contented and happy to see his/her significant other living a good life, having good health, and wearing a smile every day. Unrequited love surely hurts like hell, yet one could still feel happy with it. We couldn’t force someone to love us in return no matter how big our sacrifices are. We could only hope that they’d let us show how much we care. While we cannot control others feelings toward us, we can control how we react with their actions. We always have the power to choose our own attitude towards other people. At the end of the day, random acts of kindness, no matter how small radiates positivity in all directions.

Here’s hoping to share my thoughts with you all. This is inspired by Monday Morning Melts hosted by fellow bloggers, Jade, and Rosema for this week’s ‘Song Prompt’ entitled, As Long As You Love Me. This song had me dance while watching. There you go!

Monday Morning Melts: SERENDIPITY

starry.gif

I’ve never felt this way before
A smile that makes my heart explode
Stare that touches my very soul
Kisses that takes me to places unexplored

A total stranger
Swept me off my very feet
Caught me off guard
Never thought I’d fall so hard

That burning desire
I couldn’t quench in all my might
Ever since that starry night
Thoughts of you never left my sight

Oh helpless me!
And yet I’ve never felt this happy
Take me now, all of me
You and I were meant to be!

This is in response to Monday Morning Melts hosted by Jade and Rosema. The first song lyrics  prompt is actually one of my favorites – If You’re Not The one by Daniel Bedingfield. Hopefully my poem says it all!

 

Weekly Quotes To Ponder 30

cheaters

 

Hi there, people! Time for our ‘Weekly Quotes To Ponder‘ moment. This is actually a feature here in my blog where we can reflect about a quote and share our thoughts about it. Happiness is doubled when shared with others, right?

The quote above is one of my favorites. When I first encountered it, it answered some of my questions about how others treat us and made me understand human nature in an intimate sense. Most of the times, if not always, we tend to accuse others of things that we are doing without even being aware of it. We even blame others for our failures and unhappiness. Looking for a escape goat is but normal in this cruel world. There’s also a wisdom hidden in this quote that I was able to grasp – self realization and self value. If we really know ourselves and understands our importance in this life, we won’t allow others to define who we are.

“A beast in human’s clothing understands better than anyone how people want to be treated.” – Kurapika

How about you? What are your thoughts about this? I would be delighted if you’d share it with the rest of the world. God bless!

“If you want to get to know someone, find out what makes them angry.” – Gon Freecss

Here’s my take for this week’s Three Line Tales. Come and join us and enjoy reading and writing a brief tale out of an amazing photo prompt. For instructions, kindly click here.

Under Spell

yathoriRidiculous it may sound
I must admit it’s profound
But whenever I’m down
When I’m wearing a frown
Or alone in a town
You act more than a clown
Bring my feet on the ground
You are one of a kind
I don’t mind if I’m blind
As long as you’re by my side
With our love I take pride
It’s worth all of the ride!

Weekly Quotes To Ponder 28

acceptance

Truth be told, I already forgot what life felt like before he came along. How could I? I’ve found someone who wants to learn every aspect of who I am. For the first few months of being together, he never fail to make me feel important. Just being with him is happiness. Seeing him smile is more than a pleasure. And I knew that he’s the one I would want to share my all until I breath my last. This faith kept me holding on and made me believe that true love knows no boundaries, and it measures no time nor space.

sadness

But recently, I’ve found myself questioning my so-called faith. And in the wee hours of the night, when the whole world is fast asleep, I lay in my bed, tossing and turning. Thinking of any reason why a love that seems so strong and true is actually full of lies and deceit. I’m in denial stage.

The quote above summarizes it all. There are things in this life that is beyond our control. That sometimes, letting go doesn’t always mean we give up or we are weak. I am learning to accept what happened in the past and is now trying to put back the pieces of my trampled self and begin anew.

How about you? How are you dealing with failures? I would be delighted to read your comments. May God bless us all!

Weekly Quotes To Ponder 27

In about 10 months of blogging, I already made 200 posts and have 265 followers. Time fleets so fast, sometimes I could hardly keep up. Today is another ‘Weekly Quotes To Ponder‘ moment. And I’m on my 27th post so far. Amazing!

 

Daughter

 

I stumbled upon my daughter’s laptop while cleaning her room, she sometimes leaves it open when she’s in a hurry. Google chrome window is still open, I couldn’t help but check what website it’s on. I found this – May I Lick It Off For You?. This is some kind of short story or article written by her in a certain website. I know she’s into writing and I am actually the first one who encouraged her to continue doing it. After reading, I realized how far she improved with her grammar and I think she even found her niche as early as now. However, I am a bit anxious about the stories or fiction she’s writing about. For me, it’s too adult for her age (she just turned 14 last July). And to be honest, I don’t know how to react and as much as I want to confront her, I don’t know how? I’m quite confused and a bit scared at the same time. Having internet access 24/7 is really making children aware of things not yet suitable for their age. I must admit that technology is a boon and curse for teenagers.

I do agree with the quote above. I could see it my daughters. They may have gotten some of my talents but they are way better than I am when I was their age, honestly. I am still one proud mom, somehow. And I can definitely say that my eldest daughter is morphing into a brilliant lady who knows how to find happiness and fulfillment in her own way. I’m not to hinder her from enjoying and making the most of her teenage life. I’m here to guide her and make her feel she’s loved no matter what.

May God bless us all!
