cycling lesson #1

2014 literally punched me in the face before it ended and I look like I’ve been in a fight. I fell off my bike and on my face while I was trying to stop the bike when the boyfie and I were biking in Nuvali. I can’t bite and the side of my chin and below my chin is black and blue. Like if the boyfie was with me walking, they would ask me if I was in an accident or if the burly guy abused me. ganen. Totally my fault because I forgot everything that I was taught to do to stop.

And the self-awareness crap hits you when you’re at the dentist, looking at the ceiling and hoping that you don’t have to have splints, also when you look at your face in the mirror and you’re looking at a nasty bruise that you have to explain to your mom. All good though, no splints needed, the bruise seems to be fading (thank you hot compress) and my mom didn’t freak out.

So what did I realize?

At a certain point between my face hitting pavement, the dentist/hospital and writing this, I’ve: entertained thoughts of stopping learning how to bike; thinking that I have hematoma; freaked out the boyfie with my hypochondriac tendencies; made my staff wonder who hurt me; cooked NYE dinner; lit fireworks with family; and realized that tama ang boyfriend ko : maganda pa rin ako talga kahit may pasa.

The lesson here is to see the beauty in things and places around you, even when they appear sucky. 🙂
Happy New Year! 🙂 May the sucky things of 2014 (like this bruise) fade away and the great and wonderful things of 2014 remain and prosper in our lives! 🙂


Clarity from shitty things

I have some friends that chew me over some of my life /friends/love choices. But hey, while it does hurt to be betrayed/disappointed, I have no regrets.

This is why. Read this article.

And you know what? I realized that everyone deserves to be happy and sometimes I’m included in the equation and sometimes I’m not.

Never begrudge people their happiness. I learned this through my mom’s example. Hard to do, but so very worth it. My heart’s stronger for it, and my life is happier. Life is too short to constantly be thinking of what other people are doing in their lives. Think about your own life, and make it grand. 🙂
