Choose your battles wisely. After all, life isn’t measured by how many times you stood up to fight. It’s not winning battles that makes you happy, but it’s how many times you turned away and chose to look into a better direction. Life is too short to spend it on warring. Fight only the most, most, most important ones, let the rest go.

It’s been said that he who laughs last, laughs the loudest. Dolphy, who reigned as the country’s King of Comedy for decades, is most probably having a good chuckle right now. He has checked out while we’re all scrambling like mad to deal with his sudden exit. Imagine an impish little boy who has suddenly found the best hiding place ever just feeling amused that nobody can find him. Then again, at 83, the veteran comedian deserved to finally bow out and rest. As a tribute to his larger-than-life existence, we list the lessons we learned from the way he lived.
The end of wisdom is to dream high enough not to lose the dream in the seeking of it.
This post will contain some “self-chair lifting” aka (buhat bangko) so if you aren’t the “be happy for people when they’re happy” kind of person, please fxck off cos i’ma be sharing a lot about my recent cause of happiness here. Shall you decide to read the post below, YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO BE NEGA AFTER! :)
I cant hide my disappointment after yesterday’s events. I cant believe that I got screwed over by this huge company i’m supposed to be working for. (I wont go into details) Really, really surprised how a firm that big can do this and i’m mostly disappointed by how unprofessional they were. Up to this hour i still cant believe it. I’ve heard it happen to some people, I never thought it’d happen to me.
After yesterday, I just kept saying to myself that it was God’s will for me and that I seriously don’t belong to that company. It probably wasn’t what God had planned for me even if it was what I wanted. I’m very sure he saved me from something not good that was bound to happen if i insisted and pushed for it.
God really works in mysterious ways and I really need to learn more on trusting his will for me. After all, everything happens for a reason. I choose not to dwell on this failure/screw up, but instead I intend to make this experience a lesson and a test on how strong of a person I need to be if I want to submerge myself in this industry.
Thank you God, I will wait patiently for whatever it is you have planned for me. ♥
