i believe in second chances. not only that but i've grown to learn to keep moving forward. no matter what brings you down, what pulls you to your lowest, makes you feel like you are just a piece a shit. there's nowhere to look but up. because in the end, everything will be alright. everything will be just fine. be happy that you are still living, be thankful for everything you have, for the friends who have your back and for those who tell you that they hope to see you suceed. be happy that you have those people.

the world is in our hands, we just got to know what we could make of it.

I saw my little counter and I couldn’t believe I was already at 11,999.

Actually I saw it when it was 11,900 and I swear I was so cautious to even post anything without clicking back to keep making sure I didn’t pass the 12,000th mark. Whew!

I figured taking a 15 min break from studying, I should type some kind words.

It’s been quite a journey this tumblr has gone through! I had this since 2009, I think. Though most of my posts have just been reblogs and some scattered text posts here and there, I really cherish this blog. It’s interesting that how you can go through an archive and you can easily go back to how you felt when reblogging that certain quote or song or revisiting some funny gif or video that you had posted months ago . This blog is like my little time capsule and to see something that documents my interests and my growth the past few years has been really great.

So I just want to thank those of you who have been through my journey whether from the beginning, middle or now. From all these quotes I reblogged, pictures of life ruiners, caps of shows I love that; they’re all glimpses of my interests and my personal life and interests that I have shared with you and continue to share. :) To more posts, reblogs, tears, and laughter! Here’s to my tumblr and to my lovely friends and followers.

I cant judge you. Because we’re all human and we all make mistakes and nobody is perfect. But I really believed in you, I did. I believed with my every being that you were going to be great and successful and we were going to do this together. You stood by my side and rooted for me as I did the same for you. We were going to be in this together. And yet, I have ripped you out of my life so quickly and painfully as I could the moment you turned around. What was sad was that I believed in you more than you believed in yourself. During desperate times, I thought you would be honorable. I saw you in that way. I guess not. I guess the image I built up was just in my mind and just only that. Sometimes I wonder if maybe if I reached out, you would’ve took the voices out of your head and would’ve stayed.

But this is no longer a time for what ifs. 

"Some dont stay, you just gotta jot that down."

I promised you that I will make it to the top. And even if you are not here, I’m still fulfilling this promise. With or without you.

While doing my daily roaming on Tumblr, I can across this picture. My first thought about this picture was that it looked amazing. While scrolling through the notes, the first few comments I read were about this picture was about how “make up does this to people” or “this is basically how every girl looks like”. Seriously? Has the society and the culture blinded you so much that you’d make a bias comment make up differences? I don’t understand how people can be so shallow that they can’t see the beauty from both sides of the face. Supposedly, because she wears make up, she’s ugly. Or because she doesn’t wear make up, she’s ugly. This world views such things in a black and white perspective. I say both sides of the face is gorgeous. Focusing on the left side, her make up radiates her beauty. In other words, it’s complimenting her facial features. Her skin gives off a warm glowing tone, her brows and lips are full, and her eye make up brings out her blue grey eyes. Focusing on the right side, everything is natural. There is no shame in the uneven skin tone. There is no shame in the bags and lines under her eyes. There is no shame in in her unfilled brows and her natural lip color. The beauty about this is that they are not flaws. We are brainwashed by the media and the culture about how to define beauty that we overlook what beauty really is. If you compared the two sides and said one side looked better than the other side, then I feel sorry for you. You truly don’t understand what makes both sides beautiful.

Suffering is not holding you. You are holding suffering. When you become good at the art of letting suffering go, then you’ll come to realize how unnecessary it was for you to drag those burdens around with you. You’ll see that no one else other than you was responsible. The truth is that existence wants your life to become a festival.

we have to believe in that small light of hope. That small voice that says ‘you can do this’

I can do this.

I’m not sure if this picture is a strand of hair or the red string of fate but lets pretend it is the red string of fate haha.
According the wikipedia, this is a definition of the red string of fate.

The two people connected by the red thread are destined lovers, regardless of time, place or circumstances. This magical cord may stretch or tangle, but never break. This myth is similar to the Western concept of soulmates or a twin flame. 

Call me cheesy but I actually believe in this. Or it’s something I have throughly thought about. Who exactly is our soulmate? Who exactly is the person we’re going to marry? Isn’t it funny that somewhere right now, your soulmate is just out there living life and you may or may not know who it is as of this moment?
Maybe you’re going to meet them tomorrow in a coffee shop like in those romantic comedies. Maybe they’re someone who you constantly pass by in the street on your way to work and you dont even know it’s your soulmate. Maybe they’re someone you’re already associated with. Maybe it’s the person you’re currently with. Maybe it’s not. Maybe it’s your best friend. Maybe it’s a complete stranger. Either way, they are placed on the same earth as you, breathing the same air as you are, going through the days as you are, and just living life just like you are.
And you have no clue.
At least I dont.
I know I’m not going to realize it even the moment I meet him. It’s not going to be some Disney movie where he will waltz in my life, we meet eyes, finish each others song and get married the next day. Because that’s not realistic! I believe finding true love is a process. Whether it’s someone I know or someone I dont know, it’ll happen. It’ll happen when I least expect it. And I’ll realize one day when I’m spending time with him. Wherever we may be, whether I’m sitting in the passenger seat on a night drive, on some romantic date, on the telephone with him, or just sitting on the couch watching a movie; I will look at him and it will hit me. I’ll turn to him and think that ‘Oh this is him.’
And would that judgement be final? Who knows. Maybe I made the wrong judgement. Maybe the next day, he will leave. Maybe he’s not the one and maybe I’ll be “devastated” And you think “why would you go out with another person if you’re not even sure if ~they’re the one?”
Because why not take the risk? How will you ever find out without taking that risk?
When things dont work out with previous guys, when feelings are not mutual, I dont fret over it and cry anymore. Because I tell myself that there’s a reason to this. There’s a reason to this because it’s something I need to experience. Because that wasn’t meant to be and there is someone out there better for me. My ‘soulmate’ wasn’t this person but it’s someone out there that is worth the tears, fights, heartbreaks I have experienced with the past.
I’m not one constantly thinking ‘I’m going to meet my soulmate today!’ since there’s a bigger picture to life. But it’s endearing to know that somewhere out there is the person I’m going to spend my life with. There’s someone out there who will be there for me through thick and thin, til death do us part. Someone who I will do anything for and they will do the same for me. Someone who will achieve the greatest dreams with me and just live life together. The day when I actually “meet” him will be a good one. 
Until then, we’ll just have to see :)
