We hope for perfection, joy, and best outcomes. But we commit and see mistakes, feel sad, and attain less than the ideal. We may have perfect moments but for how long? A few seconds or a couple of minutes maybe. The realization of an imperfect life always kicks in. Because that is life—imperfect. We go … Continue reading Life is not perfect- what’s New?
A QUARTER PONDER! It’s been a quarter since I wrote something in this Blog. K-kinda busy 😬. And maybe I stopped believing my writing matters. I realized it does. It does to ME😘(and hopefully one or two more😘). That’s what matters. Anyway, below is a quarter worth of thoughts I shared with Friends once in … Continue reading A QUARTER PONDER!
THE ROAD TO (UN)SUFFERING I say suffering is a dearth of love. We suffer when we lose a loved one, or when a loved one refuses to love us, at least the way we want to be loved. The mental and emotional anguish cannot be quantified. No one wants to suffer. We all want to … Continue reading THE ROAD TO (UN)SUFFERING

On my way to answer an emergency medical call, I was detoured to another direction due to a marathon around the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) complex early Sunday morning. I thought the new route … Continue reading WAY TO GO! (Where Ninang?)
MORE! We don't have enough. We can't be content with enough. Enough is not enough. We need more. Spouses separate. Friendship ends. A child leaves home. Trainees quit. A person takes his life. An employee steals. Lovers elope. A mother curses. Unforgiveness. Enough!!! They need more. More effort to show appreciation. More patience. More understanding. … Continue reading MORE!
AGAINST ALL ODDS (What are the odds Ninang? 😁) I have always thought the song "Against All Odds" meant fighting for one's love "against all odds". I remembered this song after attending a wedding of a residency mate and friend. The couple had heart-rendering ups and downs, twists and turns, humps and bumps, in their … Continue reading AGAINST ALL ODDS
