We were all happy and excited the last time we went to Laguna… We are back today and we feel totally ironic.

Life is too short, as they say. It’s true, indeed. We all made our choices, still making ones and battling to whatever the universe is offering now.

Morrie Schwartz (Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom) said that “Death ends a life not a relationship.”

My aunt passed away. She has gone through a lot of medications due to stroke and apparently her body has given up. She experienced the attack of it three (3) times at the very least, and I think it’s time for her to join the Almighty God, rest and live anew in His Kingdom. Death ended her life but definitely not her relationship with us nor our relationship with her.

This is going to be a sad Christmas for my family. We aren’t complete anymore and it would never feel the same again, but what we are thankful right now is that we have learned to value life more — we have to live it everyday like it’s our last day, we shall do the things we want and need to do… things that will make us happy and some stuff that we can learn something by doing it. There’s gotta be some shizz along the way, that’s for sure. But we must remember that we all need that shizz to learn and classify whether that thing will be good for us.. or yeah, not– it is His way of telling us that we deserve something better, that He has better plans for us.

I’m running out of words to say the things I’m feelin’ right now. No matter what will happen for the next days, perhaps we should just be ready and tell life to bring it on. We have a life, let’s live it. Absorb the pain and move on. (Sorry for the cluttered thoughts.)
Forward is the direction of our lives.
