The TEN sh*tty things you overlooked in life. ( KNOW IT MAY WAY :P )

YOU being Materialistic – People who think they’re better than you – people who think that material possessions, dressing a certain way, driving a fancy car, etc. makes you a worthwhile human being.  But material things don’t matter.  What matters is having strength of character, integrity, and a sense of self-worth.  And if you’re lucky enough to have any of these things, never sell them.  Never sell yourself in short.

YOU being reckless in expecting perfection. – Don’t condemn others for not being perfect.  Admire them for not being fake.  Even though you probably sometimes get confused, you don’t really want your friends and the once you love to be perfect.  What you do want is people you can trust, who treat you right – people you can act silly with, who love being around you as much as you love being around them 🙂

Being YOU in Situations that force you to be someone that you’re not. – In this crazy world that’s trying to make you like everyone else, the toughest battle you’ll ever have to fight is the battle to be yourself (Believe me, i’struggle alot on that. lol )And as you’re fighting back, not everyone will like you.  Sometimes people will call you names because you’re “different.”  But that’s okay.  The things that make you different are the things that make YOU.

YOU being Impatient. – The principle part of faith is patience.  When we walk by faith there will be times when we hear and see nothing, and are tempted to aggravate ( ano daw? lol) a situation in the best effort to make things happen faster.  We are tempted to sway from being faithful and patient, and attempt to create more options for ourselves, without pausing long enough to notice what is.  kasi i’ve learned na having a  faithful mind requires a patient will 🙂 Things will not always seem to move fast enough in your life, but they are usually moving as fast as they should be.  faith lang 🙂

YOU doing stereotyping. – If you judge others by their skin color, their body size, and their outer beauty, you will miss EVERYTHING about who they really are.

YOU doing the easy-street mentality. – Most great things must be earned.(heard me? YOU SHOULD EARN IT! )  There is no elevator to success; you must take the stairs.  So forget how you feel and remember what you deserve.  Right NOW is always the best time to break out of your shell and show the world who you really are and what you’re really made of.  Chances must be taken, mistakes must be made, and lessons must be learned.  It might be an uphill climb, but when you reach that mountain top it will be worth every ounce of blood, sweat and tears you put into it. 🙂

YOU on people who only tell you what you want to hear. – It’s so easy to believe someone when they’re telling you exactly what you want to hear.  But you have to watch what they do too.  Actions speak louder than words – actions speak the whole truth.

YOU, Loving those lies. – If another person steals the heart of the person you love, be thankful that you learned the truth sooner rather than later.  Because their love was never true – true love can’t be stolen.  We have to accept the fact that some people are going to stay in our hearts for a long time, even if they don’t stay in our lives. * gives a tap on her back* lol

YOU on people who continuously overlook your worth. – You are not a back-up plan (REMEMBER THAT).  You are worth more than someone’s second choice.  You can’t force yourself to stop loving someone, but you can tell yourself that you deserve better.  Never settle for second best.  Always look out for number one.  Because you can’t expect to be someone else’s priority if you aren’t  your own.

YOU facing negativity. – Sometimes life sucks.  Sometimes life gets so hard that you don’t want to get out of bed in the morning.  Sometimes life is so stressful that all you want to do is cry.  But sometimes life is beautiful.  Sometimes life is so awesome that all you want to do is smile 🙂 . Sometimes you just have to stay positive, and push through the hard times.  Why?  Because life is worth it.  The good times are worth it.  You are worth it. *HIGH FIVE ON THAT! *

P.S

It’s really nice to know ican now write some sensible posts huh?! lol . && Everything came from the depts of my soul ! lmao

You’re too blessed to be stressed! And too anointed to be disappointed 🙂

                                                                                         – dree ♥

just relax and just let things fall into place if it was meant to be then it was meant to be then it will happen on its own.. dont force it 🙂

The reason behind the red sneakers :)

………………………

Una ko siyang nakita nung magkasakay kami sa jeep matapos ma’aberya sa unang jeep kong nasakyan. Imbyerna pa ako nun kasi late na ako sa exams tapos traffic pa. Siya ang kumuha ng bayad ko. First time ko talagang natulala. Yun pala yung feeling. Speechless tapos dinig mo talaga heartbeat mo. Tapos ang init ng kamay ko kung saan nagsagi ang aming mga palad. Para bang tumigil ang mundo. OA ko no? Pero yun talaga nangyari sakin. Buong biyahe panakaw-nakaw ako ng tingin. Sa isip ko, sayang pagkatapos ng biyaheng to di ko na siya makikita. Sa isip ko rin, background music yung kantang “Jeep” ni Yeng Constantino. Anong gulat ko na lang nung nalaman kong taga-school din pala siya. Ang saya ko nun. Pinangalanan ko siyang “red sneakers” kasi yun yung sapatos niya.

Pagkatapos ng jeep encounter, matagal ko nang di nakita si red sneakers. Unti-unti na rin akong nawawalan ng pag-asa na baka hindi na kami magkita at baka may binisita lang siya sa campus at hindi dito nag-aaral. Isang sem na ang nakalipas. Laking gulat ko na lang na magkaklase pala kami sa isang subject. Nakita ko ang red sneakers niya at napatango talaga ako para tingnan kung siya nga. Siya talaga. Ayun ako. Tulala ulet. Ang lakas na naman nung heartbeat ko. Nadagdagan pa nung pinili niya at 2 kaibigan niya na tumabi sakin. Feeling ko talaga lalabas na yung heart ko sa sobrang lakas ng tibok nun. Three weeks after, nag assign si sir ng project at dahil seatmates kami, niyaya niya akong maging pair kasi nagpares na yung 2 friends niya. Bigla akong kinabahan kasi ayokong malaman niya na crush ko siya. Baka mabuking niya ako kapag magkagrupo kami. Wala naman akong kilala sa klase kaya di ako nakaiwas. Nag-exchange kami ng numbers. Di ko maalala kung ilang oras kong tinitigan ang cellphone ko habang tinatanong ang sarili ko kung itetext ko siya. Ang ending, di ko natext kasi masyado akong duwag. Two weeks ang inilaan namin para tapusin yung project. Ang awkward nung first few days kasi ang tahimik naming dalawa. Ako naman eh nahihiyang kausapin siya. Grabe ang lakas nung tama ko. After 4 days, napagod na siya siguro sa silence at siya na ang nag initiate nung conversations. Doon ko siya mas lubos na nakilala. Unti-unti na rin akong nag-open up sa kanya tungkol sa sarili ko. Dun ko nalaman andami pa la naming similarities. Bookworm, favorite band ang The Script, mahilig manood ng tv, at higit sa lahat pareho kami ng birthday. Sa mga puyatan namin sa gabi, mas lalo pa naging malalim ang pagkakaibigan namin. Ang gaan ko kasi raw kausap eh.

Pagkatapos nung project ay mas lalong naging close. Kung ano ano ang pinag-uusapan namin sa klaseng iyon. Dagdag pa nang nagsimula siyang itext ako. Mas lalong naging deep ang conversations namin. Hanggang sa naikwento niya sakin yung lovelife niya, yung niligawan niyang girl, at kung gaano siya nahihirapan dito. Hindi ko alam kung paano ko pa nagawang bigyan siya ng advice. Alam ko lang ang tagal nung iyak ko nung gabing yon. Hanggang sa klase, hingi siya nang hingi ng tulong sakin sa panliligaw. Hindi ko alam kung masisiyahan ba ako kasi masaya siya na nagkakamabutihan sila nung girl o maiinis sa sarili ko kasi hinahayaan kong makuha siya ng iba. Patapos na ang sem nang bigla niyang tinext ako para magkita kami. Dun niya sinabi sakin na binasted daw siya nung girl. Umiyak siya sa harap ko. Kung bakit daw kasi pinaasa siya. Hindi ako nakapagsalita at binigay ko nlg sa kanya yung panyo ko. Pinilit kong pasayahin siya sa mga sumunod na araw. Sinesendan ko araw-araw ng mga jokes para makatawa. Walang reply. Biglang natigil na rin ang kwentuhan sa klase. Wala na ring texts sa gabi. Two weeks na lang bago matapos ang sem ay inipon ko ang lahat ng lakas loob ko para gumawa ng letter. Doon ko binuhos ang lahat ng feelings ko. Nung gabing yun, tinext ko siya na magkita kami. Sabi ko may kailangan akong ibigay. Nagulat ako nung nagreply siya. Bukas hapon raw sa waiting shed.

Nagdecide ako na medyo maaga dumating sa waiting shed. Magpapalakas ako ng loob habang naghihintay sa kanya. Malapit na ako sa waiting shed nang makita ko andun na rin pala siya. Suot niya ulet yung paborito niyang red sneakers. Narinig ko ulet ang lakas nung heartbeat ko. Nanlamig. Kinabahan. Papalapit na ako nang makita kong may kasama pala siya. Yung girl na nililigawan niya. Nakasandal yung girl sa kanya. Napatigil ako sa lakad. Nagtago. Pinagmasdan ko silang masyang nakwekwentuhan hanggang sa namaalam yung girl. Oras na pala na magtagpo kami. Hindi ako lumabas. Pinagmasdan ko habang inaantay niya ang pagdating ko. Nagtext ulet siya. Asan na raw ako. Di pa rin ako lumabas hanggang sa nainip siya at umalis.

Nung gabing iyon nagtext siya. Ano daw nangyari ba’t di ako sumipot. Sabi ko nagka emergency. Sorry. Bibigay ko na lang sa class. Bumili ako ng friendship bracelets. Binigay ko sa kanya pagkatapos ng class. Sabi ko remembrance ko sa kanya kasi we’ve been really good friends. Pagkauwi ko, sinunog ko yung letter. Kasabay ng pagkasunog nun ang pagsabi ko sa sarili ko na kailangan ko na siyang bitawan.

Para kay Red Sneakers, alam kong masaya ka ngayon. Hindi mo man nalaman ang aking  feelings (shet. lakas maka’teenager! lol ), thank you pa rin kasi pinagkatiwalaan mo akong maging kaibigan. Kahit dun na lang, kuntento na ako.

 

Kwentong sparks nga, napundi naman.

Eto pala ang ating  favorite song . Naalala ko lang. 🙂

The reason why we give up so fast is because we tend to look at how far we still have to go, instead of how far we have gotten.

There are going to be lots of hard times in your life, but those hard times only make you stronger in the end.
