When people ask me to define love, I say, "Love is like handing someone a gun, having them point it at your heart, and trusting them to never pull the trigger." (Sponge Bob)

When they ask me why I laugh at my mistakes and even write them with pride in my blogs, I say, "I'm not crazy. I just don't give a damn!" (Daffy Duck)

When one time I was conducting a group activity, a student asked what road sign I love the most, I said, "I like dead end signs. I think they're kind. They at least have the decency to let you know you're going nowhere…" (Bugs Bunny)

And when for the nth time a friend would ask me what do I get from writing, I'm not even sure if there are good old souls out there visiting my site, I just smile and say, "Kung gusto mong maging manunulat, eh di magsulat ka. Simple." (Bob Ong)

And last night when Eva said she wants to quit from her work because nobody believes in her, her boss got mad at her, she doesn't even have friends at her agency, and she's crying like hell, I said, "Either you stay to prove your worth or you quit and just show them you're a loser, you have to strive for your happiness." (MY original)

My CHOICES: I remained believing in love. I continued spicing up my mistakes and rewriting my life, accepting failure but keep on dreaming until words would fade into thin air.

Sandy tagged me with the Wish List Meme. Here are my lists of five material wishes and five spiritual wishes:

Five Material Wishes

1. that my kids will always be healthy
2. that my husband would remain vigorous
3. that I find a teaching job, specifically as a SpEd teacher after my resignation as counselor
4. that there will always be enough to feed my family
5. that I can go to the US and bring my family after several months

Five Spiritual Wishes

1. to be patient in all my undertakings
2. to have the wisdom to decide soundly not just for myself but for the majority of people around me
3. to always have love clothing my family together despite life's challenges
4. to be more optimistic and see the miracle of life in simple ways
5. to be more dependent on God like that of a little child

P.S. To Miss Sandy Carlson who tagged me with this one, thank you for the constant encouragement. I really do appreciate your kind words. I'm even find myself always looking forward to read them. But pardon me for my ignorance, I don't know how to tag. :-)
