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.

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.

Once In A Blue Moon

Once in a blue moon, I guess that is how former active bloggers are going to be here. I can only reminisce the good times when FFF members are numerous and very active in exchanging meaningful, worthwhile reading blogposts and comments. When I visit this website these days, I feel sad and very nostalgic of those days. What happened really? What caused the death of Bloglandia? Why is it that the good ones needed to leave this place? Was it merely the outcome of evil force(s) which drove real members to go away trying to keep their sanity and self respect? Did anyone really benefit from the so called "monopoly" ? The outcome of those unnecessary fights and name calling speaks for itself. Someone or most members finally got tired. Yes, the theater is still open .... But void of real audience. The silence is deafening that no matter how a few remaining loyal members try to revive this place, it looks like a lonely graveyard. Even the moon turned blue .....

CLOSURE

Sometimes you need to meet the person who've hurt you after so many years of no communication, with his/her new or chosen love and their together. See for yourself how happy they are and be happy for them. Only then, you will have a closure, finally accepting that you were not meant to be and that there's no way the two of you will get back to each other. Don't be bitter. Time to fully surrender and give up. It should kill whatever remaining feelings you've held on for that person. Do not dwell on past memories no matter how beautiful they were.Do yourself a favor. Live the remaining days of your life. The reason why you failed to open new doors is NOT because no one was knocking. You locked yourself and hid the key to a new and promising life. It is time to free yourself. Make new memories.

What Prolonged Singleness Had Done To Me

It's been a very long time since I blogged using this handle. You can say, it is one of those days when I just visited this site and something comes to mind. Yes, it's been ages since I had a meaningful relationship, a romantic one, I mean. I've gotten so accustomed to being alone, independent, and territorial. Too long a time, I have forgotten how to "love", or is it because my heart has been numbed, or maybe it is my mind commanding it to never fall in love again?...If you ask me now, I do not have the answer. I just go with the flow. I am definitely a loner in my own place. I just go to work, to the gym (at times) and at the mall. I have very limited social life, and oftentimes it is in the company of the people I met here in FFF. They are my family, my friends. But even with them, I still do not want to lose myself. I do not want to be told on what to do and what is best for me, unless I ask their opinion. I am afraid to lose control of myself, because I only have ME, I, and MYSELF, and I do not want to lose whatever I have. You might think I am being selfish? But of course, you have the right to think that way. But, I wasn't like this before...I became who I am right now due to being alone, free, and independent for a very long time. You have to experience what I have been through in life in order to understand me well...But you don't have to. All I need is for you to read...If you were near me, all I need is someone who will listen...That is all....

The World Is Changing..And so must We...

Time has changed. People's perception and values have loosen up a bit leading to a more liberal point of view. Now, here in the USA and in some other parts of the world, it is acceptable and legal for man to man, woman to woman to marry. Well, ever since I was in a co-ed school, I have been exposed to all types of relationships. I have witnessed gays, lesbians, bisexuals engaged in relationships which were still a "taboo" mostly at that time. They were always the subject for criticism, scrutiny, hatred, disrespect, and bullying. Well, NOT MUCH ANYMORE..!!..They are now more recognized by the society because let's face it, they also play important roles in the society, and they contribute to the economy, the expansion of both the virtual and real business world, and opening the people's eyes to new horizons. The Conservatives may have different point of views, as most of them are stuck with things that are considered "traditional" and are always in conformity with things of "moral values". I grew up in the metropolis (Manila) where people look up to the Western way of life and were mostly embracing it. My eyes were and still are open to anything realistic, irregardless of the societal values. If I see them happening as it is, my heart and mind are always in complete balance. I have seen the "reasons" why gays/lesbians/bisexuals are such. None of them wanted to be "different", feeling "abnormal" and become a social outcast. Some of them even tried so hard to be what they were supposed to be born AS, and kept themselves in the closet for a long time. Some questioned their identities and spent their lifetime wondering what else could be done to make things RIGHT. Some succumbed to depression and took their own lives NOT knowing that someday, there will be a place in this world for them. And that someday is NOW...Personally speaking, I have nothing against them. NOT Yesterday, NOT Today, and definitely NOT Tomorrow. I accept people as they are, NOT what I want them to be. I just want them to be TRUE to themselves, and therefore TRUE to others...No More, ...No Less..

WHEN LOVE GETS IN THE WAY OF FRIENDSHIP

Has there been a time when one can enjoy being in a romantic relationship and still be allowed to mingle with friends? Is it always necessary to be possessive and selfish?..These are just few of the questions I have in mind. My close friends and I have been single (again) for quite a long time, and we have been in constant touch with each other online and in real life, as well as meeting each other (Eye Ball) once or twice a year. I noticed that the one who left and had been "taken", so to speak, sort of disbanded and gave up the friendship in favor of romance. We do understand the "exclusivity", but at the back of my mind, " Does it really have to be that way? " Why can't the other person understand that friendships prior to the romance saved the other from going insane?.. and therefore made it easier to cope...This made me think, what if I were on the same boat? Will I suffer the same dilemma of detaching myself from my close friends? Do I have to lose myself and the people that I care about in favor of love?..I believe that " Love Is Understanding the individuality of the other person, and not a chain to choke or trap the partner to extreme exclusivity." Wherefore being in love with someone is a wonderful feeling, being taken away from friends is selfishness.. I certainly abhor that idea...and therefore, I guess, I'd rather be single for the rest of my life...Enjoy your Heart's Day, anyway!..
