39. My new favorite number.

I never had an issue about my age. In fact I embrace it and never hide the fact that I’m getting a year older. Its like your favorite excuse for everything like asking for a seat from another senior in MRT. If I was given a chance to exchange every year with youth and beauty… I would gladly say “pass” for the opportunity. #wisdom over #vanity.

I seldom visit the church. But everyday, I say a little prayer. Being grateful that I had another day, another chance to mend my ways. Looking back on those years, I like what I become. It may not be what I dream of becoming but it’s not a bad plan B anyway. I guess when we started this journey, we set up a map on how to become on what we would like to be. But when we started to drive, a few bumps and life decisions has to be made – ultimately a choice between what is bad and not so bad. We arrive on each station a little different until we throw out the map and just glide through life.

I can still read your name on my right arm… they are all healed but i can still see the marks

Its like yesterday when i scribbled your name
Swearing why it hurts
Asking GOD why i love thee

Blood runs through my veins
The blood drips on the floor
The blade hums my endearing love

But time heals all wounds
Its true
Now its just a white mark
But my heart still has to heal thyself

I know in time ill get over you
My heart is still dripping with blood
Can i move on.

One tiny step
One last breath
One more chance

the ART of LETTING GO (picture series 1)


“The Art of Letting Go” series is one successful blog entry that i decided to create a whole new series from images found in the ever popular  site TUMBLR, LOVEQUOTESPLUS and SEARCHQUOTES.  So i decided to bring it back and compile ten beautiful quotes that will surely inspire you, (my dear readers) to finally ‘let go’.



the most HEARTBREAKING text messages i have read … (series 4)


Too many lies can weaken one’s trust…

Too much betrayal can cause a person to be afraid

And the sad truth is …

Too much pain felt by a loving heart can cause it to freeze

Till it goes numb by the never ending pain…

Until it doesn’t feel any love… anymore. (Sad but true)


To love someone doesn’t mean to commit with that person.

Sometimes you just have to be satisfied with whatever connection you have with that special one.


Isn’t it sad when you are so much in love right now,

but you cant freely let it out?

And your so DAMN scared to show it to all cause of one reason?


(gawd, this hits me right on my noggin – AJ)


Are we really hurt because

we can’t tell the person we love what we really feel?

Or are we hurt because at the back of our minds

we know that telling the object of our affection what we really feel won’t make any difference

(now, I’m starting to cry…- AJ)


People must try to be sensitive…cause not everyone is strong enough to endure pain.

After all there’s no anesthesia for a broken heart


What makes us a fool???

When it hurt us to the core seeing the one you love with somebody else,

but still, you keep on staring.


UNCERTAINTY is the biggest torture in love.

You feel jealous yet you can’t complain.

You can get hurt yet you can’t show it.

You can love with your all yet you cant say it.

All you can do is watch,

keep the pain, enjoy, the smiles, hugs and kisses then show much that person means to you


The love you cant have….

Last as the longest

Feels the strongest

And hurts the MOST.


They asked ‘how does it feel to love someone who love someone else?’

After a deep breath, he answered; ‘its like hugging a cactus, the tighter you embrace, the more it hurts’


We keep on sticking to who we like, that’s why we never notice those who like us.

Sometimes were dying for someone who doesn’t care, while somebody’s already dead trying to please us…

4 easy steps guaranteed to make you SMILE!

Rejected by the guys whom you thought you’ll say ‘forever’ or he abandons you in the middle of nowhere without a word.

Maybe, you don’t like what you see in the mirror and seems that no one even finds you charming.

Better yet, you gave up because no one finds you attractive!!

Well… im no expert but everything i have described are the one i feel… today.

but there is yearning voice at the back of my head YELLING ‘SNAP OUT OF IT…MORON”. And we come to realize that listening would’nt hurt a bit but rather help us in finding ourselves once again.  Finally, another lightbulb moment: We fail to be happy cause we are not satisfied with what we have.

So here are a few satisfaction guidelines that i could you share and i hope that will help you as well:

    do not hold on to something that would never be yours

    do not fight for someone not worth fighting for

    do not cry for something lost, gone and inevitable

    appreciate what you have and be thankful for whatever things people give you

happiness is a mere conduct of the mind. Everyone can be happy as long as they really want too.

I want to be HAPPY and I WILL….

the Art of Letting Go (part 5)

MANTRA 41: when you hold someone, hold them like it’s the last time you’ll ever see them and when they go… don’t make reasons for them to stay… make reasons for them to return

MANTRA 42: In your life, you’ll take note of a lot of people.

One’s with whom you shared something special, will always mean something.  There’s the one you 1st kissed, the one you first loved, the one who 1st broke your heart, the one you’ll put on pedestal, the one your with right now and the who got away.

That person with whom everything was perfect but timing was just wrong.  No fault in the person, no flaw in the chemistry, but the cards just don’t fall the right way

MANTRA 43: the sand thought me ONE THING “you cant hold on too many things, no matter what you do to make them stay, and no matter how much they want to stay, the wind will always blow them away

so learn to let go and choose carefully which you want to stay, because like the sand, ‘only’ those which are in the center of your palm will last…

MANTRA 44: whats the difference between MOVED ON and I FORGOT YOU ALREADY.. wanna know?

When you say I FORGOT YOU ALREADY, you totally accept the fact that the person you call mine is not yours anymore.

But when you say I moved on, you just realized that its over but the feeling is still there.  Youre just ignoring it….

MANTRA 45: All suffering is caused by being in the wrong place.  If your unhappy where you are …


MANTRA 46: Do you know that the heart has no pain receptors?  So the next time someone breaks your heart, move on.  Your pain is just an illusion.  A temporary psychological disturbance that you have to overcome


No one ever gets tired of loving,

‘but everyone gets tired of waiting, assuming, hearing lies, saying sorry and hurting.

So snap out of it and learn to let go


You should not be sorry bout love.

Rather it should make you wonder that if you were once happy with the wrong one, how much more when the right one comes.

MANTRA 49: Ang pinakamahirap na parte ng paglayo sa taong di ka kayang mahalin, ay ang … bonggang bongang katotohanang di ka niya hahabulin


if theres one thing ive learned from falling in LOVE

its to stand up no matter how painful the cuts;

to fight for what I believe in and to wait.

Because even if I think now is the right time to give extra effort – waiting is even worth it
