Ang Huling El Bimbo 2018

Indeed it was a joyride,
an overdrive to nostalgia--
viewed from the spectrum
of being in one of those shoes
many years back
and joining in the melodic
fade out lalalala...
That military training act
brazed such creative rendition
that my salutation
seemed like the
roof was on fire.
We realized that
hard lessons were learned
inside the classroom
and out of it.
We were caught in
certain crossroads
and faced questions each time
we woke up and deal with life,
Of love phases which
bloomed and doomed--
bittersweet, yeah right.
But with a smile,
we have to go on
to unveil fresh chapters
and truth sinks in that
we're not too young at all.
Those friendships and kinships
that were enveloped with
crazy vibes and seriousness,
and in time, will grow out of
their old habits until they part ways.
Truth to tell, true ones remain unshaken.
Ngunit ngayon kay bilis
maglaho ng kahapon.
Sana'y huwag kalimutan
ang ating mga pinagsamahan.
Freedom and letting go, from all sorts.
Hey, Paraluman did left a mark.
Life as it is, pare ko.
Dahil minsan tayo ay naging
tunay na magkaibigan.
Just a little bit of love
could mean so much.♡

My #100thankfuldays ~ Day 90

Follow your inner moonlight, 
don't hide the madness.
Only when you are aware 
of your uniqueness 
will you begin to have 
a sense of your own worth.
It is truly an amazing feat 

to be your true self
amidst a world that is 

splattered with varied changes.

If we celebrate our uniqueness, 

the world will, too.
It believes exactly what we tell it—
through the words we use 

to describe ourselves,
the actions we take 

to care for ourselves,
and the choices we make 

to express ourselves.
Tell the world we are 

one-of-a-kind creation who came here
to experience wonder and spread joy.
Expect to be accommodated.☆•*¨*•.¸


My #100thankfuldays ~ Day 89

I know not how to paint, 
but I know, for sure, 
that we color the world 
with whatever we put our hearts into. 

So when you see the details,
the colors and irony of Life,
let your soul appreciate the interest,
affection, compassion that goes into it.

In the many superimposed rainbows of my Life,
I will never run out of gratefulness
and would always remember to 

bring back the glory of appreciation to Him.♡

My #100thankfuldays ~ Day 88

Most times in my life, I make it a point
to look back to remember the awesome memories,
to remember the positive lessons I have learned, 
to help someone else learn from what I have lived
and to see how far I have come.

And these memories lose their meaning
when I think of love as something new.
Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before.
I know I'll often stop and think about them.
And grateful am I for the smiles in my heart
brought about by the strength and compassion that
I continuously gain through my journey in life...♡♡♡

My #100thankfuldays ~ Day 86

You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one. ~ John Lennon

There are past dreams and goals 
that turned into realities. 
You can, if you dare.
Use this positive mindset to fuel 

an even brighter today and tomorrow.
It's not about surviving. 
It should be about love.
When you know love, 

that's what makes this life worth it.
When you live with it everyday.
When love is your refuge from the different
manifestations of death that surrounds us all.
And when it fills you so tight 

that you can't express it.♥☼✿☆♥

My #100thankfuldays ~ Day 87

The thing about remembering is that you don't forget.
You can learn from what you remember, but you can't change it.

When you remember me, 
it means that you have carried something
of who I am with you, that I have left some mark
of who I am on who you are.

It means that you can summon me back to your mind
even though countless years and miles may stand between us.
It means that if we meet again, you will know me.

I tend to think we are what we remember, what we know.
The less we remember, the less we know about ourselves, the less we are.

Remembering brings us backward while allowing us to move forward.
When your heart knows the truth, it never forgets.♡

My #100thankfuldays ~ Day 77

Nostalgia can lead to regret for some 
which is why they can perceive it to be bad, 
but if you can use nostalgia to remind you 
of what has led you to who you are today,
or to remind you of good times and
how you will find them again,
you will appreciate life more.

When it comes to remorse and correcting the past,
there’s nothing I’d like to undo.
Where you arrive at is because of all those things.
I know if I change something then my destination might have been different
and I may not have these significant lessons up my sleeves. 
Learning life's lessons is what makes Life beautiful...★♡¨*•.¸¸✿♡★
