I love being my…

I love being myself — no pretensions and no shallowness. I am just being ME!

IF ONLY..

She’s hurt, unloved and alone. She suffers from a broken heart (Again?) Now what? Is it possible to find a new love despite her 30-something-age? Is she entitled to another fruitful relationship with another man? Would she really let go of the past and start to move on with her life? Would she be happy again despite everything that has happened?  Would she finally meet her match? Would that man be the right guy for her? Can she still marry and have children?  Would she find that bliss she thought she’s lost many years ago? The answers to those questions lie on her hands. Only she can answer those questions. If only she could make up her mind.. if only she were open to change and to another romance, it wouldn’t be too difficult to find her own happiness.. If only I could help her pass that depressing stage of her life. But how can I? She doesn’t want to listen to. She has her own decisions and principles in life. I am just a friend, a friend who’s willing to exhaust all means just to make her happy. If only she could realize my concern, our concerns.. If only she’s ready for a change.. If only..

The sad truth is, she doesn’t want to change..she doesn’t want to be better.. she’s stuck with I-STILL-LOVE-HIM-DILEMMA. IF ONLY!

#I always tell her that at the end of the day, she’s still the one to decide on her happiness. Well, what can I do if she’s not yet ready to be happy? These are the three things that I can do for her: to cheer her up a little, to support her and pray for her!

#I hope she will feel better soon.. Patience is a virtue but time is gold !

THANKS FOR THE NOMINATION! :)

I’ve just started blogging few weeks ago and it has been fun! I enjoy reading blogs of other people, and chatting and sharing thoughts with them. Most of all, I like what I am doing — sharing my thoughts/feelings with others and being expressive and creative in my own little ways. I was amused, shocked, happy and honored when one of my followers nominated me for the Liebster Blog Award. First time!

Yes, I have felt that. When my grandmother died in May 2009, I was so upset and down that I even called life unfair! Backsliding. Depression. Frustrations. Sadness. Name them all! Well, we do have our own experiences of ups and downs. Good thing, those bittersweet have made me a stronger and better person.

8. What’s the biggest turnoff in a man/woman?

Hmm, I hate tattoos! My biggest turn-off in a man. Not to mention the illegal drugs and other vices.

  • 9. If you could visit any country in the world, what would it be?

Given an opportunity, I want to visit Italy. I want to learn its language, culture and tradition.

I prefer suburban life which is more ideal to simple women like me. It’s more peaceful and stress-free.

-Jeannie (admin)

Who’s Jeanie? (shhhhh)

According to my friends, this is the real me:

“I just wanna let you know, you’re a very beautiful lady and I see so much in you that could make the world a better place to live in. I’m just so lucky to find a friend like you who is filled with punk, life and laughter. Keep it up, Jeannie girl! You’re one, hot mama!” 😀 – Praise

“Torch bearer, wise cracker, counselor, some of the distinguishing features of you; surprisingly a true friend who’s always ready to respond to the one who is calling; the one who shows no feebleness; one who never talks big; maybe an owner of a sharp tongue but polite enough not to hurt anyone; true human, true person that needs heed but if all else fail, six souls with warm hearts will give you an embrace.” – Chard

“She’s simple and cheerful. She’s very sentimental, too.” – Ate Cecil

“A wandering soul with great thoughts..” – Chard

“EXTRAORDINARY!” – Shine

Uhhh, very affirming and touching. Thanks! 🙂
