I do believe that the original sources of all religions should be taught, because with that we will find our similarities, not just our differences. I believe that if Mohammed, Buddha, Jesus, and Moses all got together they would be best of friends because the spiritual basis of all religions is something that builds unity.
But I guess ultimately what scares me about marriage is where do you find this person? You know a lot of times, most successful relationships, people meet through work, school, mutual friends. But what’s most interesting to me is when people just meet in life, just randomly. You know, I have a friend, he got married, I asked him like “Hey, uh, where’d you meet your wife?” He was like “I was leaving Bed, Bath & Beyond. I was looking for my car - I drive a gray Prius. I saw a different gray Prius, I thought it was mine, I walked up to it, I realized I had the wrong car, but I bumped into Carol, we started talking, that was that”. That’s unbelievable. Think about all the random factors that had to come together to make this one moment possible - this one moment that changed these two people’s entire lives: First off, this guy has to live in this particular town. Then he has to get a gray Prius. Then he has to need to go to Bed, Bath & Beyond. Then he has to go to that particular Bed, Bath & Beyond. Then there has to be another guy who also lives in town, also drives a gray Prius, also needs to go to Bed, Bath & Beyond, also goes to that particular Bed, Bath & Beyond at around the same time. Then they have to both park somewhat near each other, my friend has to leave before the other guy leaves, see the wrong Prius, think it’s his, walk up to it. Then the woman, Carol, needs to be near the wrong gray Prius for a million other random reasons. They bump into each other, they start talking, their entire lives are changed. That’s the most amazing and terrifying thing about life. It is, cause the amazing thing is that at any moment, any one of us can have that moment that totally changes our lives. You could be leaving the show tonight, bump into someone… it could change your life. You don’t know, that could happen. The terrifying thing is… what if we’re all supposed to be at Bed Bath & Beyond right now?
Date someone who gives you the same feeling of when you see your food coming at a restaurant
It’s my birthday and I still love celebrating it it’s a good thing let’s continue this okay yes
I am trying to see things in perspective. My dog wants a bite of my peanut butter chocolate chip bagel. I know she cannot have this, because chocolate makes dogs very sick. My dog does not understand this. She pouts and wraps herself around my leg like a scarf and purrs and tries to convince me to give her just a tiny bit. When I do not give in, she eventually gives up and lays in the corner, under the piano, drooping and sad. I hope the universe has my best interest in mind like I have my dog’s. When I want something with my whole being, and the universe withholds it from me, I hope the universe thinks to herself: "Silly girl. She thinks this is what she wants, but she does not understand how it will hurt.
Okay… Weekend didn’t go the way as I planned it. Heck, everything turned 360°. But, amidst those fail moments, at the end of the night, all you gotta remember are the small things that helped you not lose your sanity - like the nicest barista bringing you your FREE coffee; finally reuniting with your glasses; a good talk with a friend on the way home; getting to eat the food you’ve been craving all week. And yeap, maybe it was a good weekend after all. You just have to know which side to look at.
They say, letting yourself be seen naked by someone - and I don’t just mean this literally - also means letting yourself feel/be vulnerable to that person. But sometimes it might mean the opposite. You let others see your nakedness because you don’t anymore feel the worth of your own shelter, your own home, your own skin, your own body… your own life.
You don’t own it anymore.
They took it.
It’s not yours.
I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good.
I have always loved weddings. But in reality, I have never attended one - until today. And I am extremely happy that the first wedding I witnessed and become a part of is the wedding of someone so dear to me. Needless to say, it was magical and was welcomed with wet eyes :”)
Best wishes Kuya Regie and Ate Cindy! ❤️❤️❤️
