The Passionate Blogger

My mind longs to convey the messages my heart cannot contain. Void of eloquence, my lips are sealed to even whisper what my pen can easily glide to express the deepest feelings I keep deep inside me. I have this ardent desire to culminate what both my mind and heart cannot hold in overflowing. Hence, let me be the blogger that I am, for readers like you to wait and see.

My appreciation.

How Late is Too Late?

And How Old Is Too Old? 3 years from now, I will be officially a senior citizen and I will be receiving a lot of benefits, I supposed. But probably, I will still be single, and alone at that time. Is that my fate? My Destiny?...If not, is that too late to build a relationship? Maybe, I should listen to the song of Perry Como which goes:

"I WANT TO GIVE"---By Perry Como

I wanna give
I wanna give my love to you completely
I beg of you
I beg of you to listen to my heart

I've never prayed like this before
And I'm askin' you not to close the door
For I can tame the wind and smooth the waters
If you just let me

I've never prayed like this before
And I'm askin' you not to close the door
For I can tame the wind and smooth the waters
If you just let me

I wanna give
I wanna give you all the strength within me
To make a world
To make a world that cannot fall apart

And you can sit upon a throne
Oh, I'll give it all just for you alone
For I can tame the wind and smooth the waters
If you just let me

And you can sit upon a throne
Oh, I'll give it all just for you alone
For I can tame the wind and smooth the waters
If you just let me

Loyalty

Loyalty and gratitude....These are the two traits that I show to this website. One might wonder, who, in her right mind will continue to blog on this website which has turned into a graveyard?...If you happen to visit FFF 10 years or earlier, you will understand what I mean. I owe a lot to this place. When I was feeling so low, I found friends here who helped me get back to my knees. They became my true friends until now, and we still see each other at least once a year. I may have almost found that missing romance in my life as well, but there are things that are not really meant to be....But, even those memories bring smile to my face each time I go down the memory lane. There were fights every now and then between the bloggers, as well as groups...But even those are fun to look back. When FB became popular, everyone left and deserted this place. I even rested and hibernated for a while, but I am still here, even if I am the last member standing....I am still loyal, and grateful....Thank you FFF!

Pre-Valentine Poem

Yesterday, yester-years, yester stories,
Flashbacks, racing through my memories;
The good times spent from way back then,
Still inspires me to pick up a pen;
To write what's beautiful from before,
That nowadays I seem to find no more.

The youth had hastily left me feeling wasted,
The times I took for granted and thought I never wanted;
Never it occurred to me that one day I'd look back,
Eating my words that tasted like salt made of rock;
I find consolation and humility accepting my regrets,
The times I never valued but will never forget.

Was it really all of Me, or was it just my destiny?
All my journeys from here and until eternity;
At times I thought I am always in full control,
But things happened, even if I abhorred;
Circumstances that I may have rendered sublime,
Now I just reminisce in words that rhyme.

Where is the Love I used to know?
Had it melted just like the snow?
Will there be a new flame or will it be just a game?
If I try it again, will it put me to shame?
All these thoughts have given me a goose flesh,
I definitely do not want a life that is full of mess.

So thank you all for reading this masterpiece,
I sincerely wish your Valentine filled with bliss;
Don't forget to share all the love in your heart,
If you haven't done yet, now is the time to start;
Wish me luck, but by all means let me be,
If no one loves me, let me love ME............

Friends With Benefits: What's your take on this?

Things happen, because 2 people agree to do it, whether the original intention was just to experience unusual practices, or two individuals are either drunk, or vulnerable to temptations because they always have each other for comfort and support. Such as those friends with benefits....Yes, it happens, at times, on the spur of the moments. But wait!...Most of the time, the guys won't take the "incident" seriously, and may just take advantage of the situation and will engage for more "incidents". Meanwhile, women who are naturally emotional, will be attached to these men, leading to their serious involvement and expectations. Next, they will take on the role of real girlfriends, become possessive, and dangerously jealous of any other women that these guys may have already been related to or just beginning to get serious with...So dangerous that these women will be so obsessed, combative, destructive, and worse scenario, may even take somebody's life. This is due to the feeling of rejection, abused, played on, and betrayal....Very rare that it's the other way around...although, men can be victims too...So, with all these, do you think friendship will ever return to the original level? or is it permanently doomed? Remember the saying: "HELL HATH NO FURY LIKE A WOMAN SCORNED"...Be very careful....

...Our beauty fades
...Our definition of love changes
...Our health deteriorates
...Our memory begins to cloud
...Our circle of friends become less
...Our needs come first before our wants
...Our hopes seem to decline
...We become more sensitive
...We look forward to the sunset, than the sunrise
...We just know that sooner or later, the end is inevitable.
...Time is precious..What needs to be done now, can no longer be put off
for another day
...So fall in love, even if you are not loved back
...Give, even if you do not have much
...Appreciate what you have, and be grateful
...The simple things do matter the most
...Live meaningfully

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

They say, that happiness is a decision we should make for ourselves. No matter how heavy our problems are, how trying the times maybe, how difficult the situations are, there is always a choice to be happy even in small ways we can imagine. Sometimes, a cone of ice cream will give us a break even for 5 minutes. Yes, it's that simple. After all, it's the small things that makes the difference. Most of all, nothing can beat the positive attitude that we all can emit. Problems take time to be resolved, and no matter what we do, they are going to be there for sometime. We do have a choice to either SULK or SMILE through it. Take a deep breath, take a walk, indulge in something that is simple and attainable. Call an old friend, cook your favorite dish, or go to church and pray...Maybe, that's all we need to do...Worrying too much will wear us down fast, but smiling and staying positive will give us more energy to face another day....So, this Holiday Season, I am wishing everyone, a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS, and A VERY PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR!

Holidays Are Here!

How is everybody out there? I am sure you are busy preparing for the Holidays. Some maybe done with shopping and some are waiting for Big Sales, or waiting for the last minute. Others maybe waiting for the 13th month pay or bonus. It is our tradition to buy gifts for our loved ones everytime Christmas is approaching. Will it really matter if the presents are expensive?...To me, it is just the thought that counts. I still believe in the snail mail greeting cards. Nowadays, everything is electronic or virtual, and of course, FREE!...But there is something about snail mails that really makes it special....the personal touch, the special effort, and it gives us the nostalgic feeling of being thought about by people we care about. Sharing, caring, forgiveness, reconciliation, parties...name it! We all look forward to those. I am hopeful as well, that FFF members will take time to reminisce the good ole days of our banters and daily exchanges here. This website will remain special to me, because this is where I've met wonderful people who made a difference in my life...ENJOY YOUR HOLIDAYS!

Don't Let Your Nose Bleed..!!!

Nose bleed is a slang term used in the Philippines which may connote different meanings but is prevalently used if a Filipino is speaking to a foreigner who speaks English. Although the Filipino may be able to understand what the foreigner says, s/he may somehow have a difficulty to express him/herself in a fluent manner of speaking, thus the "nose bleed" is being used as an expression of difficulty. Since then, people use the word as a joke either to save themselves from the embarrassment or if they feel that a co-Filipino is "showing off" his/her good command of English language. Others take offense and are feeling insulted at times. Please be very cautious when using the term "nose bleed". Here in FFF, there was a time when the management used to BAN Tagalog posts (they denied them). It took several protests from Filipino members before Filipino articles or blogs were allowed. So, however you want to post your thoughts and feelings, GO FOR IT..!!!

What have YOU done? What were (are) YOU thinking? When YOU aim at hurting others, in order to get even from the pains and rejections you have experienced, YOU take things on other people who have nothing to do with your personal life YOU filled your heart and mind with hatred YOU do not know how to love because you were deprived with it. You find strength in destroying people But at the end of each day, you find yourself in solitude, encapsulated in your own world of madness. You still have the brain but you lost your mind. You still have a lot of "things", but you lost co-existence with others. Why did you allow yourself to divide into "selves" when all you need is to become whole again? Today, when I went to church, I actually prayed for YOU. None of US is perfect and life is not perfect. But you need time to HEAL. Take a break, set yourself FREE! Do something more meaningful. When you think others have abandoned you, DO NOT FRET. God is always with you. Let Him Live inside your heart. HE will heal you.
