Truths & Consequences


Some truths leave you with all the answers you need or long for, and then there are some that just brings you to a whole new plethora of other questions.

Some truths even have the ability to steer you to two different directions - whether to be happy and feel validated that you are right all along or to be sad that it did happen.  It's crazy!

The truth will set us free - could be the cliche of all cliches.  Because in the end, you'll only realize that it does not.  The truth alone will not set you free.  Because the key to be truly really free lies in the acceptance of that truth.  
 
And sometimes, it is just so hard to do.

===============

To say that I've gone through some crazy weeks would probably be the understatement of the year.  Sometimes, I feel like I already live for this shit that when things go back to normal, I would end up being crazy. Lolz.

Today, my 6 year old niece knocked on my door and gave me this piece of fine art (na may kasamang bonus na malupit na power hug).



For a while I had to hold back my tears as I power-hugged her back.  And on that split second of a moment, it all dawned on me - that with all my insecurities, my natural and superficial flaws, my impending obesity status, my short and long comings - I am loved.  I may just be some random ordinary chinito guy (with nice shoes) that can easily be replaced by anyone but to the one that truly loves me, I will always be the BEST.  I will always be special. =)


It feels soooooooo fucking good GREAT!!!


Feeling enough and happy,

“Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement.

They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful. There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and not worry about what they will think of you because they love you for who you are. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it’s like being young again. Colours seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn’t exist at all. A phone call or two during the day helps to get you through a long day’s work and always brings a smile to your face. In their presence, there’s no need for continuous conversation, but you find you’re quite content in just having them nearby. Things that never interested you before become fascinating because you know they are important to this person who is so special to you. You think of this person on every occasion and in everything you do. Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. You open your heart knowing that there’s a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible. You find that being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure that’s so real it scares you. You find strength in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soul mate who will remain loyal to the end. Life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile. Your only hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life.”
