To My Man,

To My Man,

It is so overwhelming that many people love you. They have so much things to say about you and it is pretty amazing those are all happy crazy memories. Maybe, there are few not-so-bad memories but they always ended up laughing about it. You have touched their lives in so many ways which they will always remember and treasure. You have the gift of making people happy out of your quirkiness and sarcasm. You simplify complicated situations with your extraordinary yet make sense solutions. You would always brighten up someone else’s mood because you just wanted to goof around. In giving advice, you will always have a point. When you start to speak words through your wisdom, the serious you will always come out that will make someone left in tears. When someone in need, your helping hand does not hesitate to lend it to anyone. You will help in your own way and as much as you can. You are a shoulder to lean on to every one.

You are that kind of person that is why you are truly a gift to anyone you will meet.

So you are to me. You are the gift I didn’t ask for.

Hearing the people share their stories about you makes me tingle. Seeing them laugh because of your jokes makes me feel like the I am the luckiest girl in the world. You have no idea how you give me butterflies in my stomach every time I see you. You excite me every time you are around and even though you’re two blocks away from me I can already feel your presence. There might be different voices singing together but yours will always stand out. Your role in the family never fails to amaze me. You are the kindest and most reliable among them all and I am not being biased here. You showed many times how obedient and helpful you are to your family which makes me even more sure about you.

You are the best example of “Patience is a Virtue” because you have undeniably the longest patience on everything. I don’t know where it is coming from but it is also one of the reasons why maybe we’re still together because no one could ever handle my stubbornness the way you do. No matter how often we fight and for whatever reason it is, I still want you by my side and you never left as well.  You might disappointment me many times but I know it’s part of your whole being (though sometimes it really hurts). But, I will always accept you as far as I can. Your efforts are my weakness and it’s crazy how it makes me feel secured. Sometimes when you’re asleep and looks like an angel, I wonder if what comes into your mind to love me this far or what will make you not to love me. Questions I am afraid to ask sometimes.

Little did you know, that I like it sometimes when you are mad, when you are jealous, when you set curfews, when you restrict me talking to someone because you know their motives, when you interrogate me series of questions. I love all of it. When you show your superiority in me, that’s the time I will always feel secured. Submissive they say, but that is what I wanted knowing my capabilities are sometimes uncontrollable. Submitting to you might be the best decision I will ever have because I know you will help me turn into a better version of my self.

But behind your strong personality, you also cry like a baby. I already know that you’ve been hurt too much when you start to cry and it rips my heart apart. I can’t take the crying you because of us two, you are the strongest. Still, I am thankful that you can cry in front of me. Through that way, you are letting me know that I can be trusted. So, thank you.

When I am losing my trust in you, I would always stand firm once again and will always recall all the efforts and sacrifices you make just to keep this relationship going. And yes you are right, “Why would you waste our relationship over something that is not worth it?”. The words you’re uttering when I’m in doubt are filling up my soul which makes me feel secured once again. You have that talent of sincerity on making me feel good and assured. Thank you for investing on me and thank you for keeping that up. Thank you for loving me unconditionally.

Happy Birthday!

Go after your dreams!

Go after your dreams!

       Chasing our dreams will never be easy. You’ll go through different up and down pavements along the way. It will be a bumpy journey before you will finally reach the destination of your goals. Sometimes in our lives, we question ourselves if we are still on the right track going to our dreams. Our “what ifs” kept bombarding us and our “whys” kept haunting us. Confusions are creeping up on us which makes us tremble over and over again. We begin to doubt our capabilities to succeed because we thought there are no progress on what we are doing. We are envious to our colleagues because they are living their dreams. We are on the verge of giving up our dreams and be what it is. But hey, dreams might take some time to arrive but one thing for sure it will come in your most unexpected time and  in unexpected way.

                 For me, I know it is not there yet but it is just around the corner waiting for me. I know that my dreams are some kind of a blurry and I don’t even know where to start. I even read articles on finding your passions, things to know your passions and everything like that. I was desperate. But I am still hopeful and positive about my future, that God has better plans than me though it is kind of tricky sometimes, still I am optimistic about it. It is all about taking time slowly and analyzing things deeply. Listen to the things around you, listen to what your heart desires, listen where the calling is coming from. It’s no easy, I know, but trust in God that he will give you what is the best for you. That is a 100% win-win. Together with that, be persevere on everything you do. Keep the mantra of being optimistic and without knowing you almost reach the goals that you once dream of.

Don’t stop running after your dreams, don’t quit. You’ll get there, you’ll see. When you feel like failing, think of it like a trampoline keeping you bounce until you will finally reach the highest peak. “Never give up” as the saying goes which is in fact, true. Be a man to your dreams and live with it. Whatever your dreams may be, it might be small or big, it might be too far from reality or simple as plain but a dream will always be a dream. Don’t wait for the day you will regret everything and all you can say is, “How I wish I did everything”.

Remember! 

Remember! 

When he forgot to text you in the morning,Remember that he’s working.

When he didn’t ask to fetch you,

Remember that he is just tired.

When he left you hanging during your convo,

Remember he worked night shift.
If he still talk to her,

Remember they’re just friends.

If he refuse to do what you want,

Remember he is just being reasonable.

If he keeps on communicating with her,

Remember they’re in the same circle.
But if you feel tired from all of these,

Remember that it’s okay to stop.

If you feel like getting drunk,

Go buy yourself a rum.

If it is your only way for escape,

Find where the ocean is.
Remember, you are a gem.

You deserve the love from a King.

Don’t let him outsmart you.

You deserve the royal treatment.

You are not an option.

Leave when you feel like leaving.
A real man is true to his words.

Respects your decisions.

Accepts your opinions.

Love your whole being.
