This Is… My Wish – For YOU

I hope the days come easy and the moments pass slow
And each road leads you where you want to go
And if you’re faced with the choice and you have to choose
I hope you choose the one that means the most to you

And if one door opens to another door closed
I hope you keep on walkin’ ? til you find the window
If it’s cold outside, show the world the warmth of your smile
But more than anything, more than anything

My wish for you
Is that this life becomes all that you want it to
Your dreams stay big, your worries stay small
You never need to carry more than you can hold

And while you’re out there gettin’ where you’re gettin’ to
I hope you know somebody loves you
And wants the same things too
Yeah, this is my wish

I hope you never look back but you never forget
All the ones who love you and the place you left
I hope you always forgive and you never regret
And you help somebody every chance you get

Oh, you’d find God’s grace in every mistake
And always give more than you take
But more than anything, yeah more than anything

My wish for you
Is that this life becomes all that you want it to
Your dreams stay big, your worries stay small
You never need to carry more than you can hold

And while you’re out there gettin’ where you’re gettin’ to
I hope you know somebody loves you
And wants the same things too
Yeah, this is my wish, yeah yeah

My wish for you
Is that this life becomes all that you want it to
Your dreams stay big, your worries stay small
You never need to carry more than you can hold

And while you’re out there gettin’ where you’re gettin’ to
I hope you know somebody loves you
And wants the same things too
Yeah, this is my wish
(My wish for you)

This is my wish
(My wish for you)
I hope you know somebody loves you
(My wish for you)
May all your dreams stay big
(My wish for you)

My Special Someone

One of the best things about being an adult is the realization that you can share with your sister and still have plenty for yourself.– Betsy Cohen

My sister is finally home!

It was past two months since we opted to keep distance from her. It was one of the most heartbreaking moments that our family had to deal with. That was the first time ever, she was sent away from us… hopefully there won’t be any recurrences.

We did send her to an institution with the intention of seeking psychiatric aid. She had meningitis before she turned 2, and everything wasn’t normal since then. I will not further elaborate on other medical definitions because the bottom line is, she still falls under the “mentally challenged” category, or some would put it as loose sanity. I am not ashamed nor will deny the fact that yes, she requires special care. After all, she is indeed very special to me!

I am a bit skeptical now, how the people from the outside, will be treating her… It is no secret how we tagged ex-convicts as detrimental casts in the society, even though some are found not guilty of any crime. I wouldn’t be hypocritical to say I am not bothered about my sister’s own branding nor I won’t  be sensitive about it. God knows how I have kept myself on low-key all these time, I am usually the diplomatic one, but I will never promise to keep myself as steady when my own sanity is triggered by bad mouth and inhumane gestures against my sister. I have a high regard with fairness and humanity… but I sure have limits too.

I am concerned because she underwent treatment, but the community didn’t. There are people who are born devious and ill minded, I just wish I have the means to protect her all the time. But we can only do so much…

I owe who I am or what I have to my sister, because whatever good I may be doing  is mostly out of  her inspiration. I don’t think our family will be as bounded as we are now, if  not because of her.

Most people say, I am the gifted one. With all humility I would agree,  giving the credit to my not -so  ordinary sister, the special ONE, to whom I draw the gifts I have.  I am blessed!

She will be turning 25 soon! Just in time for my homecoming! I am really excited and can’t wait to sleep beside her again. πŸ™‚

What’s The Pressure?

When I decided to move here, I know I’m doing “hardcore”. Unlike multiply, this BlogSpot has a much broader exposure. I knew that… Being exposed, would mean, being open to the harsh critics, (not that I have one now- I hope not ever)
You see, I’m just being a little paranoid.
Do I really have to make sense always? When I know I don’t…
Am I intelligent enough to express an opinion? Which I feel I am unripe of personal experiences….
Should I be concern when people started following me?
What do I care for? Or why should I???
I have this HUGE fascination over “smart people”, those type who doesn’t have to wear an “I AM SMART” tags, because it naturally reflects on how they express themselves… at the same time, I am easily intimidated by them. I tend to shy away or keep myself distant.
Whenever I feel I posted a good entry, I find it hard to make a follow-up, in wanting to be consistent, I tend to overdo it. It’s not like every day that you’ll hit the jackpot… and I know that I am consistently inconsistent!
I have been really telling myself to start reading good decent books…but I always fail… I deserve a major “boohoos” and big Loser sign, when talking about books! I even debate with myself, whether reading a book is enough to earn a sound perspective in life? I know that enormous amount of knowledge comes with reading, but does wisdom automatically comes with it? Ha-ha! What is being defensive/offensive?
Would you believe that I even ask “Yahoo Answers” on Blogging 101? When I knew or I thought I have been doing it for sometime.. Am I not?

So there, this is just out of  concern for those who took time reading my entries… It’s  making me extra conscious… I can’t make any promises though… thank you for the tolerance you extended reading this.
After all, I call this blog, my fancy-free wheel. I am just living up to the hype and crazy ride. Life’s like that! It’s FREE and keeps on turning around.

On A Black Saturday (late post)

Found this movie trailer in perfect timing. It was one of those days when my optimism is on a reclining state.

HOPE is indeed contagious.

I would really want to watch this film.

I am going to write my own letter to GOD, for a change. πŸ™‚

***

I am posting this now on an EASTER SUNDAY! I attended mass earlier, and the officiating priest’s last words were: Easter Sunday is the proof of God’s promise of HOPE! Jesus has risen!  GOD is ALIVE!

I am inspired! Let’s spread HOPE! (Mine have just been fully invigorated)

Some Kinda Blue : Luna!

Most twit updates I read last 30th of March were about the “Blue Moon” visibility. I really don’t know if they mean blue as color or other blue translation… I was itchy to leave the office the soonest that night, as I don’t want to miss that blue moon moment. In my head, I was really thinking of the color blue! Ha-ha! I didn’t have my camera with me, only Lindy and my other F330 phone. Lindy doesn’t have the zoom function, so I opted to use my older phone to capture what I saw.

Here’s what I got :

No editing was done. I thought it was a bad shot, or was it? I just found this after checking my phone today. 
Well at least it looked more “blue” in this picture! 
Some gullible moment can result to realistic output! This made me smile! πŸ™‚

My Moment of Reflection

I am not religious…

It’ll be too shameless of me in claiming that I am some godly person, because I’m not.

I am flawed and imperfect.

I do not always utter the right words nor I consistently do good deeds.

I tend to be selfish sometimes.

I get mad.

I am guilty from having ill thoughts and coming up with harsh remarks.

I am insecure and easily jealous.

I react stupidly. Oftentimes, I am dumb.

I am nothing special nor exceptional.

And I feel I am not always enough…

But all these… shall not stop nor paralyze my heart.
I will continue to trust and love – to be more accepting and understanding.

Because whoever I am, whatever I may have done, who I was or what I have become…

HE never ceases to embrace me with comfort all the time.

I may not come up with a lengthy prayer…

But surely, I always start and end it with…

Thank You and I Love You GOD!

I cannot imagine how or what my life will be, If I am not kept in your loving care.

“LORD, you have assigned me my portion and my cup; you have made my lot secure. The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance. I will praise the LORD, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me. I have set the LORD always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.”
— Psalm 16:5-8 6
