A Pinch of Truth Hurts Doesn't It?

"If you think someone is keeping some information from you, say something today."

And so says my horoscope says today.

"Hearing the truth: is it good or bad?" has been an ancient debate among the PCHRD Jologs. Different opinions have been expressed such as what you know won't hurt you or the truth sets you free, etc. I remember that one debate we had at the canteen that it came to a point where personal issues have been raised and where some got emotional about it.

Just last Friday, I learned a very hard truth. I won't share it with you cause it's rather personal. And it did really hurt. Super. To the point that I couldn't keep my tears at bay that some of my officemate came to witness me cry. It's embarrassing, really. But hey, I'm just human.

I've always believed that you should know the truth however painful it is. I felt that you are not being realistic enough about the things around you that you kept on denying the truth.

Some say, I'm a saddist. I don't think so. I just prefer to get hurt rather than being lied at or made to look a fool.

I'm currently reading The Road Less Traveled and one of the disciplines mentioned there is Delaying Gratification. It says there that a lot of people want to get to the good part and try to do away with the painful ones. But this doesn't happen in real life. You can't do away with the painful ones cause it's part of life.

I have to be honest, I'm guilty of running away from my problems. But then there are some instances that we are faced with our problems/issues. This time I won't turn my back on it. This time I'll try to face it with my head up high. I'll get through this because I believe that even though knowing the truth hurts, it sets you free. This is what I look forward to.

1 John 2:19

On a very boring day at work...

From Lee:
When people can walk away from you let them walk. Your destiny is never tied to anybody that left. The Bible said that, they came out from us that it might be made manifest that they were not for us. For had they been of us, no doubt they would have continued with us. [1 John 2:19]

Just wanted to share this inspirational quote ^_^

God's Blessings

God has a strange way of showing how life can be beautiful ^_^

I've been surrounded by great friends from high school, college, NEC, PCHRD and now ProV and new friends. These are the people who helped me get through the storms that came my way. Right now, I'm still struggling to get over some obstacles in my life, finding direction... searching... healing...

They say true friends are hard to find. I don't believe that. I'd just say, you haven't found the right friends for you, yet. Lucky me, I've found them at each and every corner of my life.

God never left me hurting for too long. Friends, old and new, are always there to be a shoulder to cry on (just like I did last Friday at the office LOL! Thanks Alds, Kix, Nerry) or just be an ear to a never-ending tirades of worries and problems in life (*hugs* to Wace, Ron, Bebe, Janjan, Kuya Domeng, Jojo "Kulot", Brian, Alan, Jon, Joe-e), or see me get a fair share of enjoyment in my life ^_^ (PCHRD Jologs, NEC Losers, Evangelista housemates and their better halfs, new and not-so-old OJT friends, Ross), or just be there ^_^ (Hi Yayang, Kikit, KC, Zarena, Noel, Jeremy, Eric, ProV teammates and "special" friends, Ley [dating ProV na nsa SG na hehehe miss you!], college friends)

You see, I'm a person who is surrounded with love and happiness. Although, I'm far away from my family whom I miss all the time, my friends are always there to comfort me and be my second family. Not to mention, my beloved Tita Cristy who has been my guardian and my second mommy for nearly 10yrs now. Love you, Tita! *hugs*

These are my God's blessings. They fill my life. They give a part of themselves to me just to make me whole. I don't know why God has poured out the best and real and true friends for me.

They are the reason why I love my life, why I love living and why I never gave up.

Thank you, friends! *hugs tight*


NOTE: To the jologs and losers, you're just too many to mention. I hope d kayo tampo why I didn't place all your names here ^_^ and anyway, alam mo naman kung sino kayo ^_^

Love you! ^_^

Blocked

There are so many things that I wish to write about right now. But I'm experiencing writer's block *sigh* It's so frustrating. I just couldn't find the right things to say. Every line I write seems wrong; either it sounds too corny or doesn't make no sense at all.

The emotions that I want to invoke into my article just can't seem to find it's way through my thoughts. I guess it's just too jumbled in there right now, my brain I mean. A lot of emotions are swirling inside my head.

Oh well, it's one of those days...

The Other Side

I like reading my horoscopes. I don't follow them per se, I just love comparing how my day went with what my horoscope has to say ^_^

Yesterday, I really had a rather... how should I put it? Interesting horoscope. For a few days now, a lot of changes have been occurring in my life. Decisions to be made, things that need to be accepted if not understood.

Somehow my horoscope assured me that what I'm doing is right. I've been looking for reassurances that I'm doing the right things. And I found that in my horoscope. Here is what it has to say:

May 19, 2007
Sun Sign: Virgo
Date Of Birth: August 26

Your general mood should be quite good today, LOUIE, and you will find that things flow smoothly for you in general. The one thing to be aware of, however, is people who might try to burst your bubble by making you think that the grass is greener on the other side. Sit back and realize that the grass is just as green as you need it to be on the very spot where you are sitting.

YES, the pasture is just as green on this side. I'll surely enjoy it *wink*
