Hopeful October

The past months wasn't all that good but this month, i guess, might be good in some way.  It did. I just know it. Maybe because i tend to focus looking at the good things in anything bad that has happened or just about to happen..  Not really that happy, hopefully one step closer to that.

Awful Awesomeness
Lately, gained weight which is not so good and also, some emotional issues came along the way (that made me want to eat too much *ulk) It's really hard to believe i'm okay a bit dying inside but i guess it does made me even more stronger than i thought i will be. I learned a lot from everything. I learned that there are those things that go wrong and can't always be fixed. Some broken things stay broken. Some that are lost, remain lost or maybe some of those lost things have a way of coming back to us in the end, if it's meant to be. I'm madly hoping that i could still erase the unwanted happenings in my life but i do know that isn't possible.  So instead of trying to get rid of it, i just let it be there to remind me of the things i should and shouldn't do. I could regret everything if i wanted to, but that isn't really necessary. Everything do happen for reasons, we will soon find out why it ever happened to us. Life becomes a bit easier when you know what really matters and that's what i realized the most. Sometimes we really don't need to insist ourselves to others. Or even try harder to reach their expectations, It's more about who doesn't make you feel like you're a lesser person and in spite of all the flaws they've seen in you, they still chose to stay.

Well, now just patiently waiting for whatever life has stored in for me. And im kinda bit excited with that. Yay!
Life goes on. Remember that.

Regina Rica Rosarii

Late post: When my cousins had their vacation here in the Philippines, this is one of the places we visited. I've been in this place several times ago but it still feels like the first always.
  Regina Rica has a 71-foot tall statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary 
which is said to have miraculous powers.
As explained by the nun, the place was built three years ago and is now run by the Dominican Sisters of Regina Rica who are mostly Ilonggas. This explains why most of the names of the different areas in Regina Rica are in Ilongga. Also, the S-shaped trail going up the hill was 308 steps She further explained that S stands for “sacred”. Then, she explained the cross that was inside the adoration chapel. It has the idea of the “Absence Presence”. 
 Since the place is a sacred place and just like other sacred places, they have rules on clothing. Sleeveless, shorts and spaghetti straps are not allowed. However, for visitors who came to visit wearing the prohibited clothing, they provide some cloth as a cover up. -source

Use it with confidence and you'll be amazed at the results."

In the space between yes and no, there's a lifetime. It's the difference between the path you walk and the one you leave behind. It's the gap between who you thought you could be and who you really are. It's the legroom for the lies..

 you'll tell yourself in the future.
