For what its worth... and what its not...

 Worth /wɜrθ/  - value: equivalence
"The true worth of a man is not to be found in man himself, but in the colors and textures that come alive in others."
- Albert Schweitzer
Nobody responded so here's my blog post about worth. Worth is our value and by saying value, well just like beauty, its in the eye of the beholder. But maybe, just maybe, it also depends on what we show to others, or what we choose to show to them.
"pare, kung kilala mo 'yung tao alam mo 'yung value nya..."
- Larry James Janayon
I had a good talk with an old friend last night. We chatted 'bout two things, one is his status quo and the other one is the thing that is currently bothering me and in the process he mentioned what was quoted.
So what is my value??? Ask the people around me! :)
They know better...
So pano na 'yung mga taong we deem as "walang kwenta" or "walang pakinabang"??? Maybe we just don't know them enough or we barely know them at all. Ang hirap din kasi kapag hindi sila totoo kahit sa sarili nila... Kapag ang buhay nila ay isang malaking make-believe... When reality strikes, masasaktan at masasaktan sila. And what's worse, kung gaano kabigat 'yung make-believe, ganun din kasakit kapag reality strikes back. Pero kahit ganun, hindi totoong wala silang worth... Sabi nga ni pareng Pascal:
"We are all something, but none of us are everything."
- Blaise Pascal
May oras pa... yan din ang sabi ni pareng Larry. I just hope its not too late.
Hello sa mga chow chow!!! Yan ang magiging kalaro ni Tasha someday (at papangalanan namin itong Socks). :)

Wala lang, gusto lang magpost... Sad old song, ganyan dapat tunug.

I've come back this mornin' to where I first came alive
Here within this terminal where the buses arrive
I was a commuter on the 804
Work for a computer on the 19th floor and...

You came down the aisle of the bus and you sat by my side
Shoulder up to shoulder we shared that 9 o'clock ride
Oh, my heart was screamin' as you left your seat
Followin' your movements I was at your feet and...

Oh, down into the terminal both of us smiled
So we entered the terminal just as you smiled
"Won't you leave out work for today?" you ask of me then
So I phoned-in-sick on the way to the home of a friend
We were all alone from 10 A.M. till 3
Really thought the fire had gone out of me but...

You awoke the sleep of my life from gray into red
Made the weary wonder of Wall Street rise from the dead
Could have held up budding my entire life
But I had to get home to the kids and the wife and...
So I left for the terminal where I began
Baby, no, I wouldn't have left if I'd been half a man

So here I am this morning where love had asked for the dance
Here within this terminal where I passed on a chance
Lord, I'll never find her though I've truly tried
Probably she's found another bus to ride and...

I am now about to begin the last of my days
I'm within what others would call a terminal phase
I myself can only say it's livin' dead
Ridin' to the office with a song in my head that goes...

La da da...
And you know it grows
La da da...
Oh, la da da...
Oh, la da da...

Yan, ganyan dapat tunug ng malungkot at matandang kanta.
Hahaha, netong nakaraan, puro ganyan laman ng player ko.

Worth, that will be my next blog topic.
Hey reader, mag-comment ka naman at ipaalam sa'kin what I'm worth.
These past few days, I can't seem to find my worth eh. :)

Oh, and I was in Tagaytay. Its not my first time pero ngayon lang ako nagpunta dun para mamasyal. :)
Eto ang ebidensya. Purple Man went to Tagaytay (@

Love and how it goes

Love is.......

Well before everything else that is cheesy and mushy, let's go back to the basic.
Love is a verb, an action word. Thus, when we love, we act, we do (hahaha) something.

We say these "I love you"s a lot but we don't really know its meaning. And for me, we only start to love when we act. When we do something to make this feeling known. How? There are so many damn, stupid, awesome, amazing and splendid ways. Maybe it depends on our individual personality.

When two people fall in love:

They trust each other. No matter how nervous, worried or dangerous it could be, we trust. Why? Because it's a way of submission. It's a subliminal message of love. Someone told me that love and trust entered the dictionary at the same time. When we love, we trust. We cling to whatever reason, strong, weak, even impossibility, because we believe this feeling will see us through anything.

They doubt. Oh, what the hell am I saying?! Hahaha. This part, I'll be brief but concise. We doubt once in a while... for whatever reason, it varies. And if you'll say you didn't, well whoever doesn't doubt himself commits the sin of pride. Thing is, don't let it eat you. Love is stronger than doubt.

They cherish. Because life is love and to live is to cherish. By transitive rule, when we love, we cherish the moments we spend with each other. We treasure it with all our hearts.

They argue. Because loving is also a struggle for there is individuality. One way or another, there would be differences. A wall they have to break, or a wall they'll start to build higher. But when love is true, no matter how big or small this wall is, it can break through anything.

I'll have to break the blog post cause sleep is a necessity. But let me end it just like how I started.
Love is a word, an action word. Therefore it has these verb tenses too.

Loved, love/loves, will/shall love. (spare me, let's pretend I only know the basic tenses)

Those who are loved: Let's learn from whatever experience that we had. As I have always said "walang nasasayang na experience". Most of all, be thankful. We may not have kept that person but at least, we have these moments that will always live inside our hearts.

Those who are in love: Seize the day. Spend everyday as if it's the last. No one knows the day nor the hour. Remember, to live is to cherish. Trust him/her with your life, if you can't do that someone else might be able to.

Those who will love: If you prayed for rain, prepare to receive it. :) That is called faith. Have faith. It can move mountains. Faith is to believe what you do not see; the reward of this faith is to see what you believe.

To you whom I love and will love... Let's strive to be better than we are because...

"When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too."
- Paulo Coelho

I love you baby. :)
