Quote to ponder on…

You can love someone, but what good does that love bring if you can never share it with that special person?

*Someone dear to me has uttered this statement. Now, I’m  trying to reflect on this…. Maybe, IT’S NOT JUST MEANT TO BE!

GERALD ROGERS’ TOP TIPS FOR MARRIAGE SUCCESS (REPOST)

GERALD ROGERS’ TOP TIPS FOR MARRIAGE SUCCESS*

  1. Never stop courting. Never stop dating. Never ever take that woman for granted.
  2. Keep a special place in your heart where no one must enter except for your wife.
  3. Fall in love over and over and over again. You will constantly change. You’re not the same people you were when you got married.
  4. Always see the best in her. Focus only on what you love. If you focus on what bugs you, all you will see is reasons to be bugged.
  5. It’s not your job to change or fix her . . .  your job is to love her as she is with no expectation of her ever changing.
  6. Take full accountability for your own emotions: it’s not your wife’s job to make you happy, and she can’t make you sad.
  7. Never blame your wife if you get frustrated or angry at her, it is only because it is triggering something inside of you. They are your emotions, and your responsibility.
  8. Be silly . . . don’t take yourself so damn seriously. Laugh. And make her laugh. Laughter makes everything else easier.
  9. Don’t be an idiot . . . And don’t be afraid of being one either. You will make mistakes and so will she.
  10. Don’t worry about money. Money is a game, find ways to work together as a team to win it.

A simple message to my beloved (dedicated to Ate Mace and Kuya Jay)

Love knows no distance. Indeed, I agree to this wonderful statement. Distance, miles, and time zones are never barriers nor hindrances to love and be loved!

After 10 years of being apart from each other, who have thought that we would end up as husband and wife? Destiny made its way to our lonely hearts and binded us again after those long years of no communication. God indeed gave us second chance to love again, to feel each other’s love and care.

Here I am now, truly grateful and blessed for being married to the one I truly love and deserve. I do believe that love really works in mysterious ways. Thank God I am with my husband now. I thank the Lord for leading me to the right man, to the man I really adore and care for.

And to my husband, thank you very much! I love you when you’re in the Philippines. I love you when you’re in Hawaii. I love you wherever you are. I would like to be near you. I’d like to have your arms around me. I’d like to wake up next to you every morning of my life. And yes, I’m very happy for I am with you now. I’m finally home, mahal! Answered prayers, right?

I promise you that we will never be apart anymore. Thank you for your love, care, understanding, and support. Mahal na mahal po kita.

 

Your wife ❤

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 !

Forgotten Past

No more looking back,

Just moving forward for hurts will just put me into trap,

No, no, no more forgotten past.

Good bye, love; farewell heartaches.

Forgotten past, I’ll close my eyes and start to forget..

(This is just a part of my poem entitled Forgotten Past. I wrote this in August 2012. Now, it’s really forgotten! 🙂
