“The reason people find it so hard to be happy is that they always see the past better than it was, the present worse than it is, and the future less resolved than it will be”

“Welcome every morning with a smile. Look on the new day as another special gift from your Creator, another golden opportunity to complete what you were unable to finish yesterday. Be a self-starter. Let your first hour set the theme of success and positive action that is certain to echo through your entire day. Today will never happen again. Don't waste it with a false start or no start at all. You were not born to fail.”

“Whenever you make a mistake or get knocked down by life, don't look back at it too long. Mistakes are life's way of teaching you. Your capacity for occasional blunders is inseparable from your capacity to reach your goals. No one wins them all, and your failures, when they happen, are just part of your growth. Shake off your blunders. How will you know your limits without an occasional failure? Never quit. Your turn will come.”

It's been a while since I last visited and posted a blog here. I had trouble accessing this site using only my small gadgets. My laptop crashed and I had to buy a new one. But here I am, I have not abandoned this place that I dearly loved....Well, last week, out of fun, I clicked on a link on FB where it says it will reveal the initial of the first name of my "future lover." And guess what?....It actually showed that! I did not post it because I know there are a lot of people who will investigate and instigate as they have been waiting for me to finally have someone I can be romantically related with.. (sigh) But, like I said, I had to keep it to myself, brushing the idea, believing that it is just a coincidence. But this guy, is the brother of a very close friend of mine. He is divorced, and I met him a couple of times, had a group date (if you can call it, that), and we are actually going to see each other again in less than a month (thanks to his sister who arranged for a weekend get-away activity). We had casual talks, and I am sure, he can sense that I am aloof, and very distanced. The sister may have given him a head's up of who I am and what kind of personality I have (conservative, and over-protective of my feelings, being that I was badly hurt in the past). I am at this point in my life that I am not getting any younger, and would like to give love another chance. It will start by getting to know him more because honestly, I know very little of him, and I did not ask his sister anything about him. That is for me to find out, and for him to be honestly telling me...If things will work out well, then it is for the best...I will gamble on this one.....It is about time...

Are you a Christian? Do you believe in Lent? Do you stil practise fasting and abstinence? Are you still moved by the fact that it is the time for recollections and reflections and maybe make changes relevant to the mistakes and lessons learned from past experiences? How different is it now as compared to the practice of Lent then? Or does it even matter anymore?

I am still around.....

Just when you think that I left this bloglandia again, I am still very much around and will keep you company for as long as there is one single soul who feels the same way I do...That is, nostalgic of the good old days this FFF has brought friends and color into my life....See you again very soon!
Wow! Do I see Thousands of Blog Viewers?

I have not been away too long, was I? When I checked the bloglandia right now, nothing much had changed, post-wise, and participants-wise, but I am truly amazed at the "number of viewers". For a website that truly needs resuscitation, I am surprised, seeing that blog viewers are now in thousands per blog post. Well, I do not know how that happens at this time. I know from before, when members of FFF were huge in numbers, thousands of viewers was not an issue, but this time? What can I say? In my settings, I know that "anyone" can view my blogs, but only FFF members can comment. Well, then, THANK YOU ALL! We will continue to keep the flame of FFF Bloglandia burning! Enjoy the month of March..

Post Valentine Blues? Your BF/GF did not spend time with you? What could be the valid reason? Was s/he with somebody else? Or maybe, you knew all along that there was a second or even a 3rd party. But then, you placed your hopes and expectations so high. And in the end, you were so disappointed, and left feeling alone...Not a very good feeling. You do have a choice. To continue to deal with it by "sharing", or quit and leave....Perhaps you may want to sing " I'd rather leave while I'm In Love"....You owe yourself a BIG favor! Have someone you can call your OWN...
Weird As It May Be....

Opposite poles attract, they say. Two people totally different from each other may find something that will complement one's weakness or flaw, perhaps may bring out the best in that person. After all, sometimes, it takes someone to live up to the challenge. In the beginning, it may not look promising that a beautiful relationship may blossom out of these differences. As others may find it
"weird" that two personalities may actually unite instead of clash, it's not gonna happen if one doesn't try. This is what you call romantic prejudice, that is foretelling the outcome of two weird people choosing to fall in love. Because what is "normal" to most of us is looking at two people who share similar interests, likes, and preferences. And yet, what do we know? This same "normal" people are the first ones to break-up and refuse to fix what has been broken, while the "weirdos" continue to work on their obvious differences and use those as their strength to go on with their lives. Isn't that weird? Isn't Love Weird?...So, do not worry about weird people. We have our own weirdness undiscovered or denied. Just be yourself...Someone, will eventually fall in love with you..
Reaching Out.....

How difficult is it to reach out? Why is distance considered a barrier? One can be so near and yet so far. The problem with people is that they get "tired" even before things are done. There is always negativity overcoming the faintest sign of hope. "It is not going to work", one would say of a Long Distance Relationship (LDR) . Why blame it on the distance? After all, it is not the distance who has the emotion to build and establish. It has to be someone or something to be blamed for. What a lame excuse. Bottomline, no one wants to give it a try....

A Ticket To A Broken Heart.....

Ever imagine what things are gonna be in the future? Ever worry about what's to become? Is that all you think about? ..the what could be, then, what could have been?...These are expectations. We may not admit that we do have them, but, honestly, we all do. Some have a bit, others have quite a few more, and the rest, a lot more. These same expectations make us buy a ticket...to a journey leading to frustrations, and a broken heart. Why can't we just enjoy the moment? Why can't we just cross the bridge when we get there? Once and for all, why can't we just enjoy the moment?, and why can't we just LIVE?
Could It Be This Year?.....

Does it happen to you that you have a very strong feeling that something BIG is going to happen sometime, sooner or later? Sometimes, it gives me goosebumps, but based on my experience, It always happens. I just don't know when.
Looks like someone is interested to get to know me. He is a relative of a friend from a different state (USA). We've already met a couple of times, and the last was the past year. As usual, I was the one who is always avoiding to spend time " alone " with him. He is okay looking, financially secure, 4 years older than me, very educated, gentleman, etc. The problem is still the same. It's ME! If only I can get rid of this very conservative, "Maria Clara" trait of mine (in terms of courtship only), then I guess, something will blossom in a heartbeat. But, arrghh! I want to get to know him more, and the distance, sure makes it hard for me to do that. First, I have this problem of being alone with the guy I have not known for at least a year. It just makes me NOT breathe....I cannot imagine myself being held, embraced, or kissed on the spur of the moment. This Virgo trait of mine (I need to be prepared for what's coming) is always a hindrance. Besides, I love deeply, but I am novice in terms of romance, specially the intimate part..I do feel that I am NO GOOD in that department.. Just thinking about it makes me feel a total failure already...So, Help Me God!

New Year, new haircut...I am past mid 50's officially..., but what the heck! I am proud of who I am. I have gained 15 pounds since the time I joined FFF 11+ years ago. But, this is I, ME, and MYSELF...No filters. What you see is what you get...and by the way, I am NOT good in taking selfies..
