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.

Quote for the Day (from Coelho's site)

"We need to forget what we think we are, so that we can really become what we are."

This is my blessing this week! Just saw it today in Paulo Coelho's site. I have always wanted to follow my star... reach my dreams no matter how far it seems. Maybe, the things that I fear are not really what is unknown but I am afraid I cannot make it. This is what I see I am. Afraid. But I guess, I really just have to forget what I really feel that makes what I am so I can be who I really am.

Am I making any sense here?

Geeezzzz! I should be... or else...

Perfect sense. Let go and let yourself just be.

What Cybercelt said! Let go of your perceptions and doubts and let yourself be. You are beautiful and you have a right to be you just the way you are. God bless.

Why we are always hardest on ourselves boggles the mind. Blessings!
