Taste in music.

I guess we all can relate to this…

taste in music

Am I right?

Who doesn’t like to be surrounded by kindred spirits? I love having people with whom I can relate to especially in books I read and songs I listen to. That’s the truth! I remember this fake book that my friends and I were talking about. One topic led to another and we ended up singing every good song we all love and could remember the lyrics. It was such a fun night!

The same thing took place when I was with my siblings and cousins. We had fun talking about songs from our childhood. It is always fun to be with people who has the same taste in music like I do.

Sunday alone.

sleep

Some days, it is good for our soul to be alone. You know, peace and quiet. Hearing one’s own thoughts. And just emptying ourselves of anything negative.

Today is such a day for me. Sunday alone. To be honest about it, I love every minute of peace and quiet that this Sunday is affording me.

I hope to have more Sundays like this one.

:)

That thing you do!

I am so very happy to bring good cheer to a friend of mine who is undergoing some struggle in life that I wasn’t even aware of. I went to visit her because I was in the area of her neighborhood and I thought I’d drop by to just say hi. So when she told me that she’s been down and out lately, I chose to stay and catch up with her.

We talked about so many things including her new passion in music, musician’s friend which is her go-to place for everything music, and the band that she formed which is now her primary source of income and happiness. Then, she told me about her struggle with her family and how they couldn’t accept the fact that she left a lucrative career to become a musician.

In a way, I could empathize with her. I underwent the same struggle when I switched careers. But, I guess, my family knew me better in such a way that they let me be after a while. They know that writing is my passion. I told my friend that sooner or later her family will accept her choice. She just has to wait.

Now or never.

now or never

There is one thing that I realized after I celebrated my birthday a couple of weeks ago… It’s now or never for me! I have always dreamed of doing something else than just the course I finished in college. Don’t get me wrong, I love my profession. But my first love is entirely in a different field and I realized that it’s past time for me to pursue that dream.

Now or never.

I will do everything I can to fulfill that dream of mine and see myself succeed in that field.

Oh, yes, I will!

Christmas in July.

I love how some people are so organized with their lives. If you ask me, I am the type of person who always tries to prepare but ends up rushing at the last minute. Almost always. Ha! Ha! Ha! Every Christmas, I try to prepare way ahead, months before the season itself. You know what happens? I always find myself in a Christmas rush shopping with the others who are late in getting on with their purchases like me. Sigh.

I am now looking at jim shore christmas products and I think that I will proceed with preparing ahead of Christmas just like I always plan. This time around, I will make do with my promise. Christmas shopping in July it is!

Trying out a new business.

The most popular business in the area where I am from is car shops. It can be a repair shop or one selling auto parts and accessories. We used to have a car accessories shop but we had to use the capital on my brother’s hospitalization so we had to close it down. My dad is now thinking of opening a car repair shop this time around. Even a small space will do as long as there will be auto lifts available so we can accommodate two cars at once.

We are always discussing various businesses that we can go into. Since our area is known as the mecca for car parts, accessories, repairs and maintenance and anything related to it, might as well open up a business on cars, right?

I am in charge of canvassing for printing services for flyers, catalog and such. I found zooprinting.com for cheap catalog printing and I think it will do.

We are all excited for the car shop! We are all keeping our fingers crossed it will be a success.

The one that got away

Posted March 20, 2014 | Comments Off

In your life, you’ll make note of a lot of people. Ones with whom you shared something special, ones who will always mean something. There’s the one you first kissed, the one you first loved, the one you lost your virginity to, the one you put on a pedestal, the one you’re with.. and the one that got away.

Who is the one that got away? I guess it’s that person with whom everything was great, everything was perfect, but the timing was just wrong. There was no fault in the person, there was no flaw in the chemistry, but the cards just didn’t fall the right way, I suppose.

I believe in the fact that ending up with someone, finding a longtime partner that is, does not lie merely in the other person. I can actually argue that an equal part, or maybe even the greater part, has to do with the matter of timing. It has to do with you being ready to settle down and commit to someone in a way that goes beyond the little niceties of giddy romance.

How often have you gone through it without even realizing it? When you’re not ready to commit in that mature manner, it doesn’t matter whom you’re with, it just doesn’t work. Small problems become big; inconsequentials become deal breakers simply because you’re not ready and it shows. It’s not that you and the person you’re with are no good; it’s just that it’s not yet right, and little things become the flashpoint of that fact.

Then one day you’re ready. You really are. And when this happens you’ll be ready to settle down with someone. He or she may not be the most perfect, they might not be the brightest stars of romance to ever have burned in your life, but it’ll work because you’re ready. It’ll work because it’s the right time and you’ll make it work. And it will make sense, it really will.

So that day comes when you’re finally making sense of things, and you find yourself to be a different person. Things are different, your approach is different, you finally understand who you are and what you want, and you’ve become ready because the time has truly arrived. And mind you, there’s no telling when this day will come. Hopefully you’re single but you could be in a long-term relationship, you could be married with three kids, it doesn’t matter. All you know is that you’ve changed, and for some reason, the one that got away, is the person you think about.

You’ll think about them because you’ll wonder, “What if they were here today?” You’ll wonder, “What if we were together now, with me as I am and not as I was?” That’s what the one that got away is. The biggest “What if?” you’ll have in your life. If you’re married, you’ll just have to accept the fact that the one that got away, got away. Believe me, no matter how fairy tale you think your marriage is, this can happen to the best of us. But hopefully you’re mature enough to realize that you’re already with the one you’re with and this is just another test of your commitment, one which will just strengthen your marriage when you get past it. Sure, you’ll think about him/her every so often, but it’s alright. It’s never nice to live with a “might have been,” but it happens.

Maybe the one that got away is the one who is already married. In which case it’s the same thing. You just have to accept and know that your memories of that person will probably bring a nice little smile to your lips in the future when you’re old and gray and reminiscing.

But if neither of that is the case, then it’s different. What do you do if it’s not yet too late? Simple…. Find him, find her. Because the very existence of a “one that got away” means that you’ll always wonder, what if you got that one?

Ask him out to coffee, ask her out to a movie, it doesn’t matter if you’ve dropped in from nowhere. You’d be surprised, you just might be the “one that got away” as well for the person who is your “the one that got away”.

You might drop in from out of nowhere and it wont make a difference. If the timing is finally right, it will all just fall into place somehow and you know.

I’m thinking, it would be a great feeling, in the end, to be able to say to someone, “Hey you, you’re the one that almost got away”.

This was sent to me by a friend. And I love reading this. Hay…
