• One cannot blame other's reactions from one’s own actions. One should remind onesself that 'denial' is not an excuse.

“Your upbringing does not determine your potential. You have a choice in life.”

The rays of the sun and ironically the chilly morning draft woke me up today filled with promises of a new beginning. Although, my diary is filled with a long list of errands, appointments and work, I still believe that this day is a blessing. To wake up in the morning, breathe fresh air, (yes, where I live, that is quite possible) and enjoy the morning peace with a mug of freshly brewed coffee and the smell of the fresh baked bread rolls in the oven are more than enough GOOD BLESSINGS already. Am I a shallow person for appreciating such things? I don’t think so. What I know is that, somewhere else in the world, people are sick and dying. In the next continent, one or more didn’t have the chance to wake up to another beautiful day like today. In the distant neighboring country, people have hunger and cannot even afford to have coffee or something to eat for breakfast, but just the same, they live to survive and will have to work for the rest of the day to be able to earn some dollar or two for a cup of coffee and a piece of bread. Depressing? Yes, it is. But it cannot be denied. I am not on the same boat hence I am grateful and happy that I lived to survive the previous time of slumber.


It is for this reason that I choose to promise myself to make today the most of what I can productively. Perhaps help a stranger or two in whichever way I can. Be a listening ear to someone who is burdened and needs to unload his/her heavy heart. Be a physical companion who is alone, try to be patient to arrogant, obnoxious people (hehe, esp. at work), try to be a good person and become a soldier of peace to this world we live in.


At the end of the day, I go back home to where a love one awaits me. We tell each other what happened and what we did during the time we were apart, the highs & lows over a good wine and a bowlful of salad. Until the time comes when we fall back in a contented slumber, praying and hoping that tomorrow will be another day of full existence.

I pray…

It is ok to be passionately in love. But remember that you cannot live on just love and sunshine. Have priorities right.
