In my 33 years of existence, I have gained a few droplets of wisdom and pounds of weight. I also gained lots of friends and zero enemies as far as I know(except for that pesky neighbor who plays loud music, that tricycle driver who doesn’t give exact change, that conceited lady who cuts in lines and other morons). I have also given birth to Kulay which is the greatest achievement in my life, the second achievement was that time I scored 100 in the Videoke machine. I have loved only one man in my life and that is Legolas from the Lord of the Rings. I live with a man who happens to be my best friend, my cook, my driver and the father of my son whom I also love but only second to Legolas. I have traveled to quite a few places but I’ve never been abroad but I Have Been To Me. I have not much money, I am only rich during payday and during Kulay’s birthday (the “ampao” goes to my pocket). We have a house and a restored Volkswagen called Kapitan, thanks to my father and aunt. All in all I am Happy and Loved felt really2x blessed with all the good and not so good things that happened to me.
That was just the intro…this is the main part :)
In my existence I am only sure of one thing, NOBODY KNOWS ANYTHIING thus nobody is sure of anything thus the last line of this sentence negates the first line. What I learned so far is that everything in this world is a mystery…our life is a mystery. I have read the Bible, Aristotle, Plato and other books on existentialism and philosophy. Not even the Pope or Albert Einstein knows the answer. Non-believers say we come from a particle out of a void…who created that particle? Where did God came from? Our life is one big question which is not answerable by Yes or No, True or False but by multiple choices. CHOICE is the key here. We choose to believe in things that makes sense to us. It all depends on us and in our imagination. I choose to believe in God, Jesus Christ and Mama Mary. I choose to have a positive outlook in life and believe in happy endings despite death and tragedies. I choose to believe in rainbows and moonbeams and wishes. I choose to believe in love and family and friends. I choose to believe in Santa Claus and engkantos. I even chose to believe that somewhere in this world is a place called Neverland , a 100 acre farm and Hogwarts. I am still undecided though if there is Aasgard where the mighty Thor resides. I believe in soul mates and have found mine. I believe that the past, present and future co-exist.
The choice is yours so let’s all choose to have a happy and fulfilling life.
Happy birthday to me and to all those who celebrates their birthday today! I wish for good health for me and my family, an IPAD, more years, world peace and healing of our land and people esp. to the recent victims of Typhoon.Pablo
