OOoh my destiny

"Whats meant to be will always be meant to be."Do you believe in the in life as a matter of chance or life as a matter of choice? Do you believe in destiny? These questions pop on my head every time I commit a mistake, fail something or even the other way around, when Im happy, proud,grateful, in love and all the good or bad feelings in the world.
I love the idea of freewill. God died for us on the cross to save our souls. The greatest gift he endowed us is the precious gift of freewill. I believe that God gave us the power to take control of our own actions.Only ten percent of the things that happen in our life is the actual thing that happen, ninety percent is how we react on it. So if you are sad, ask yourself what you did that make you sad . According to Newtons third law of motion , in every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. So it all starts with your reaction to the wide array of events that happen to you. Could it be in love, career, family and in all aspects of life. When I first fell in love I thought it would be my last time to fall in love that he would be the last person I would love. But I was wrong. I asked God a million times why do I have to go through all this pain. But He did not answer my prayer. Instead I keep on hurting. When I fail my entrance exam to the university I dream of, I was more than disgusted of myself. I felt so stupid. When I cant fight for myself I feel dumb and futile. I always wait for a hero to save me from the havoc that life brings. 
 But now I know that to survive , I must be my own hero. I am well aware that my heart is bigger than my brain and now I know why I had  those kill-me-now feelings for myself.  You can predict what I would say next , because I learned from my experience. Yes, its right.  I was broken hearted because God is prepping me up for my Mr. right, I failed the entrance exam so I can meet my friends that has been dear to me, I cant fight for myself  so I can be awake of the reality that I am extraordinary. And so are you.. If you want to be great, the choose and act like you are great.
So do you play life by chance or by choice? The decision is yours. Thats all for now bloggers..

Experience is but the greatest teacher

     How do you feel when its almost christmas and a "boom" strikes? The most important and should- be-happy season of the year, is being wreaked by a storm. For some, nothing was left. But for the others who were, should I say lucky ,  nothing was lost and experience was a profit.
      December 16, 2011 when it happened. Lives were sacrificed, about 500 people were dead. 
Many people suffered and were homeless. Parents who lost their children and children who lost their parents. Spending the yuletide season with sparkling decorations, expensive foods and gifts underneath the big gliterry christmas tree is now out of the big picture. For the victims of this tragic event, having christmas with their family intact and alive matters most. On the 15th , the night before the storm, I was heading through SM with my sister and it was already rainy. The dark clouds and the hard gush of winds approached me. But I did not mind it. What's  important to me that time was just to wander off. Experience is but the greatest teacher. We took off from SM around 1 am. The storm was raging towards the streets and I couldn't even maneuver the steering wheel. . The storm was mild at that time. Then the night that I will never forget for the rest of my life then took place at that moment and at the time after I pulled over and dropped my sister's friend. Street lights were shut off and and the ravage of the winds were doubled. I pressed the hazard button and drove as fast as I could. The steering wheel was beyond my control. I can feel the agony of the engine as I drove off. The thing on my mind was to save ourselves and the  " I told you so" yelling of our grandmother. We prayed and asked God for aid. Then after 15 minutes of rush driving, we arrived home. But I couldn't park the car inside our apartment since the water is knee-high. So parked on the the elevated space across the street. I removed my animal-print wedge and crossed the water filled area. The air tripled and at last! we were home safe.
         I did thank God for that memorable experience. That eventuality urged me to wait and learn the relevance of patience and most of all faith. God is always and always will be on our side whether or not we did good or bad and most of all God will always forgive but never forget and so should we. The wide array of experiences shouldn't be trashed. We should always ponder on the lessons and the virtue we learn from these.

Ready...set....."Oh No"

Hey bloggers, those snapshots are taken yesterday, December 20, 2010 for our yearbook. I don't know if I should be happy with the fact that if I pass all the subjects, I will soon be graduating and leaving college and my alma matter, and weeks from now I would be 20 years old.Ironic right? If ever theres one thing that I wanted to invent now, it would be a time machine. I wanna travel through time and go back to the past and stay there forever. That would be one of my greatest wishes. Theres really something in the past that I have the obsession to move back there. There are just things or events that I wanted to change in the past. I mean lots and lots of things. The things that I did but I don't have to, and the things I never did but I really have to. Its like the commission and omission. The things I should have committed myself to, and the things that I should have omitted .  From pre school to college, and everyday I always remember the previous days wherein these phrases always pop out my mind " I should have done that" or " I shouldn't have done that". I remember one of my favorite instructors would tell us " Those who care for the future knows how to handle the present" I feel guilty with that statement because all I ever think is the past. But hey! theres the future waiting for me. Then I came to realize that true, the past is real but we don't have look back at it like it would determine the future. Because its the present that would determine the future and its also the present that makes up the past. But the question is, am I ready for the future? Am I handling the present well? that sounds like a buzz. Actually I don't know if I am but all I know is that I should be and I would be. Here are some quotes that I got from famous people.

The future depends on what we do in the present. -
 Mahatma Gandhi

If you would create something,

you must be something.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Every artist was first an amateur.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

The more difficulties one has to encounter,

 within and without, 

the more significant and the higher in inspiration his life will be.

Horace Bushnell

Life has no smooth road for any of us; and in the bracing atmosphere of a high aim the very roughness stimulates the climber to steadier steps, till the legend, over steep ways to the stars, fulfills itself. 
W. C. Doane
Experience is the child of thought, and thought is the child of action.
Benjamin Disraeli

Men do less than they ought,
unless they do all they can.
Thomas Carlyle

Bangkok Fun

These are some of the snaps I got in Bangkok. We stayed there for two days and one night. All we did was a little shopping and a lot of eating . We did not visit the spots there due to lack of time and planning. But it was fine, I had fun and most of all I learned the virtue of being flexible to other people specially if you dont understand a word they speak.
