[Note: This post was intended to be shown last October 11, 2007 but never got to my blog; until now.]
Nitong nagdaang dalawang linggo, madami akong natanggap na mga magagandang mensahe sa cellphone. Karamihan sa mga ito ay galing kay Ate Aina, isang nakilala ko sa YFC noong high school. Malaki din ang naitulong ng mga mensaheng ito para maup-lift ang aking spirit na nitong mga nagdaang araw ay bagsak na at parang ‘di ko na kaya. Narito na ang mga mensahe (in-edit ko ang mga ito sa pagsasaayos ng pagbaybay):

“When you’re sad, there are times when trying to be happy, and trying to make other people happy as well, is better than showing everybody that you’re sad and hurting. Redundancy sometimes just don’t do the trick. Because I’ve realized that somehow, seeing that you’re the reason why the other people smile just make things more bearable. It just shows that you’re not that selfish to let everybody feel the state you are in and selfless enough to make them smile amidst the status of your heart and most importantly, you have shown God that you have counted your blessings more than your pain. You’ve recognized your pain as channel of blessings because you know that it has a lot of wisom with it only if you don’t allow it to eat you whole. Don’t take life too seriously .
You have all the reasons to enjoy it.
(Mahaba pero simple lang message: enjoy life.)
Half the trouble of life can be traced by saying yes too quick and not saying no soon enough.
(Tinamaan ako. Aray. Hehe..)

N – aughty sometimes
U – npredictable
R – omantic with
S – ense of humor
E – xtraordinary and
S – exually active
Well, san ka pa?! Kaya nga in-demand ‘di ba? Ehehehe..
(Ayos toh. Hehe… Joke lang ha. Walang pikunan.)
I see LOVE:
- when my lola makes coffee for lolo every morning
- when my mom wakes up early in the morning to cook us breakfast
- when tito fetches his pamangkins from school
- when my siblings call to check if I’m ok
- when people eat lunch together despite the busy schedules
- when my cousin kisses the hurting finger of her baby
- when good friends hang out despite the distance
Now who said LOVE is just for couples?
(Oo nga naman. Hindi lang naman magsyota ang nagmamahalan. Hmmp. Hehe… Inggit lang siguro ako, hahaha…)
Boy1: Pare, pahiram nga ng 5 pesos, bibili lang ako ng chuchirya.
Boy2: Pre, ano ka ba? Nakakahiya ka! Hindi chuchirya ang tawag dun, tanga!
Boy1: Eh ano?
Boy2: Jumpfuds pare, jumpfuds!
(Pakornihan na toh.)
Life has great options. But we don’t always have to pick what seem to be the best. Sometimes the best and the perfect.
(Mahirap yata iyon.)

“Life’s a little too IRONIC:
We all want things to change. But once they do, we wonder why things can’t go back to the way they were.”
(True. Noon gusto ko tumanda. Ngayon gusto ko bumalik sa pagkabata lalo na ngayon na ang dami kong problema.)
“When GOD knows you’re READY for the RESPONSIBILITY of COMMITMENT. He’ll reveal the right person under the right circumstances. Wait patiently. Don’t waste your time searching and wishing. Grow and be ready and you’ll see. GOD will give you a love story far better than you could ever dream of.”
(Talaga naman tagos ang mensaheng ito sa akin. Bakit? Basta. Hahaha…)
“Two kids playing in a park began to argue. One said: I hate you. I’ll never play with you again! For a few moments they played separately. Then later, they’re playing together again.
How do kids manage to be so mad 1 minute ago and best of friends the next? Simply because, It’s more important for them to be happy that to be right.”
(Medyo hindi ako sang-ayon dahil nga minsan ang pagiging masaya ay hindi laging tama at minsan mas mahalaga na dapat tama ka kaysa masaya ka.)

“God makes us brave when we are afraid. He makes us strong when we are weak. But most of all.. He teaches us to hold unto him when things keep on falling. Good morning :-)”
(Tamang-tama ang message na ito noong araw na iyon. Akala ko ay Math Exam na namin sa hapon pero bukas pa pala. Kahit papaano, nabigayan ako ng pag-asa na kakayanin ko ito.)

1) Sometimes, God breaks our spirit to save our soul.
2) Sometimes, He breaks our heart to make us whole.
3) Sometimes, He sends us pain so we can be stronger.
4) Sometimes, He sends us failure so we can be humble.
5) Sometimes, He sends us illness so we can take better care of ourselves.
6) Sometimes, He takes away everything away from us so we can learn the calue of everything we have.
(Hmmm… True. Bagay na bagay sa kalagayan ko ngayon. Daming problema pero alam ko na matatapos din ito.)

“Maturity and stability assure future than virginity. Marrying a virgin is not an assurance of a happy and perfect marriage. Premarital sex is the act of making love before marriage. I simply want to realize that premarital sex doesn’t necessarily make a person dirty, rotten and worthless. Being a virgin does not mean that one is better than non-virgins. We have our own choice and it is up to us to be tactful in deciding.”
(Magandang argumento. Pero gaya rin ng claim ng mga no to PMS, hindi ito universal na applicable para sa lahat. Maaari na may ilan na ganito nga ang nangyayari ngunit karamihan iba ang nagiging epekto. Babae ang madalas na biktima. Kung hindi sila mababaliw dahil sa pag-iwan ng bf nila pagkatapos makuha ang kanilang pagka-birhen, maa-adik sila sa pakikipagtalik. Pero sa bandang huli nasa atin na rin ang desisyon kung ano ang tama o mali. Mas mahaba pang pagtalakay ukol dito sa mga susunod na araw.)
“Sometimes, you just have to pretend that you’re happy just to stop everyone from asking what the hell happened.”
(Aray na naman. Nagpapanggap ako na masaya pero sa kalooban ko hindi naman. Madaming bagay ang bumabagabag sa akin at nagpapahirap sa aking kalooban. Sana matapos na.)

“Never underestimate your potential and never be ashamed of what you are. Do your best especially when people expect less of you. Because the greatest pleasure in life is doing what people say you can’t do.”
(Dahil rito mas naging buo ang aking desisyon na tumakbo bilang SK Chairman sa darating na eleksyon.)

“Boy: You deserve everything. I deserve nothing.
Girl: I am nothing and you’re my everything… do we deserve each other now? =)
(Nice one. Dakilang pag-ibig. Hehe… Sana ako din, hahaha…)

“Coffee has evolved in years: with cream, iced coffee, coffee with choco chips/cookies. But no matter how people try to innovate coffee varieties, it still doesn’t lose its distinct aroma. Just like us. No matter how we clothe ourselves with different personalities, still our character remains. People may destroy your image, stain your personality but they can’t take away your character. Live. Exist. Let your character diffuse its distinct aroma.”
(Malamang na ang nagpakalat nito ay isang kalaban ng Starbucks o Seattle’s Best. Hehe… Pero tama nga naman, tapak-tapakan ka nila, hindi nila makukuha sayo ang mga nainstill na values at character na nasa iyo na.)

“You’ll never know how much you needed your friends until you look back along the rope and realized how many knots they ties to keep you from falling.”
(Oo nga, most of the time we take them for granted.)
“Regret is realizing that you should have done something when you did nothing. It is when you should have chosen the best path but you were too busy doubting yourself. It is when you let fear crowd your courage.
Don’t hesitate. When you need to do or say something but you feel so small, just take adeep breath and go on. Don’ dwell on your mistakes – use them to become a better person. Live life as it comes, one day at a time. Learn from the past, create the present and dream for the future. You wouldn’t want to end up sitting in a rocking chair filled with regrets, would you?”
(Kaya nga I’m doing the things that I should have done before. Ikaw din sana.)
At ang pinakamalupit sa lahat. Hehe…

“Traffic advisory: Huwag dadaan sa Espanya… bumabaha…
Bumabaha ng LUHA!
Hayup! Nasa amin na ulet!
– Unibersidad ng Pilipinas =)
Nawa’y nainspire ka. Hehehe… More to come in the following days.
