Thankful mornings: A Letter To You


Dear G,

This morning, like all the other mornings since the start of the new year, you wake up to a message from your guy greeting you a good morning and telling you he loves you. You find yourself smiling at the start of the day and excited for lots of the other gifts that this day has to bring in. You remember too that the night before you talked about your day, listened to each other and gave each other reasons to smile.

Yesterday, like most mornings since you were a teen, you get up to the yummy breakfast your Mom prepared for you. Many times it would be your favorite omelette that she makes like no one else and that will satisfy your taste buds and gets you ready for the challenges of the day. Some mornings, you stay longer downstairs to talk to her or listen to her talk about anything. Sometimes, you just let it on even if you have commitments and work for the day. All those times you chose well to spend time with her because you simply worked harder for the rest of the day until evening and you finished all your tasks before the week ended.

You remember having a talk with your sister the night before. You talked about her eccentricities when she was a toddler and laugh about all the silly things you did together while she was growing up. Sometimes she, too, talked about what her life is like at present, and you would simply listen to her, annoy her a little and comfort her in her frustrations, laugh with her at her fun times with her friends. Sometimes, too, she talked about how she thought of you as an older sister when she was young. Every time she did, you would be surprised that she looked up to you and that she admired you silently even as a child. You are an inspiration to her, a model.

Often you don’t remember but you know that the night before, like most nights, your Mom and Dad talked via Skype to talk about how their days have been. They openly talk about the good and the bad. They support each other, help each other to be strong to keep on going with their responsibilities and be happy at the same time. They, too, say I love you to each other every night.

On Monday mornings, you wake up to the thought of going to your meeting for work and seeing your new friends whom you have learned to trust too. After the meeting, someone from the group will be sharing something about his or her life or talk about something you didn’t know. Sometimes, you made fun of one another.

These are just a few instances that God pours you with unending love. Be grateful. You are surrounded with love.  Be happy!

Much love too,

G

Anong gagawin mo kung


Paggising mo, wala ng lahat ang mga taong mahalaga sayo. Nawala, biglang hindi lang sila nag-exist.

Wala na ang mga taong maiingay, makukulit at nakikialam sa mga trip mo. Wala ka ng responsibilidad at expectations na nakaka-pressure. Lahat ng mga bagay na kinaiinisan mo pag nandyan lang sila sa tabi mo wala na.

Wala ng babati sayo tuwing umaga sa cellphone mo at magsasabing mahal ka niya. Wala ka na ring kasamang manood ng anime tuwing umaga habang kumakain ka ng itlog na mula ngayon ikaw na lagi ang magluluto. Wala ng tatawa sa mga jokes mong walang kwenta. Wala ka ng kasamang tatawa sa mga katangahan mo sa bahay nung bata ka pa. Wala ka ng kasamang magtitiyagang makinig sa boses mo pag nagvideoke ka sa Timezone. Wala ng hahawak ng kamay mo pag gininaw ka sa sinehan at habang naglalakad sa Trinoma.

Wala ka ng kukunan ng pictures na hindi ikaw ang bida. Wala ka ng maaasar kapag gusto mo mam-bully sa bahay dahil trip mo lang. Wala ka ng masusungitan na after 30 minutes e okay na ulit kayo. Wala ka ng pagpapacute-an at popormahan. Wala ka ng ido-drawing, susulatan at tutugtugan. Wala ka ng igogoodbye kiss pag-alis mo ng bahay. Wala ka ng papasalubungan.

Wala ka ng problema. Wala na ring dahilan para ngumiti, para magpatuloy, para mabuhay.

The Secret


Don’t focus on anything. Just let yourself, let the things around you flow. You’ll be surprised how much love and good will flow into and out from you, so much that you’ll be effortlessly happy with the people you love.
