Silver Book Musings- The Joy of Creativity

It is already the first week of May. Supposedly, this is the time for much deserved fun under the sun, or lazy hours in bed. But, here I am again. Sleeping at 3:00 a.m. and waking up early to be in school and continue the work there. This isn’t the first time actually. It all started with my first big project- the NPS Diamond Jubilee Coffee Table Magazine and now it’s the turn of the SNFSS Silver Book and Yearbook 2009.

Surprisingly, despite of long hours and lots of efforts needed to be poured in these responsibilities, I feel like I’m always hype with that unfathomable euphoria to create something new. It starts always with a blank page- nothing at all. Then words are being combined, then sentences, and slowly paragraphs. A little bit of creative imagination and there's a page full of life. I guess this is what you simply call PASSION. I love what I am doing and this I guess is the real JOY.

Important Realizations that My Quest for Love has Taught Me

We often launch ourselves into the world of meaningless search for love seemingly unaware of the tremendous weight of pain we are opening ourselves into.

The quest for the deeper meaning of love has been the focal point of what we do. We create standards of how a love should be and gets hurt when it does not work the way we want it to be.

We look for the best man or woman with the decisive factors we thought are best for us and would give us that sense of pride we finally found THE ONE.

We define a dream love with our perception that it is like a fairy tale we thought it to be and of course with our knight in shining armour coming to the rescue and freeing us from our malady.

Conversely, I never had any inclination of what was love before. Then love whispered and I have realized…

Love is strange. It caresses your heart with that inexplicable feeling of bliss but also causes pain beyond words could express.

Love is a sweet blend of waving dreams, calming fears, and sharing secrets.

Love is not about having the best man or woman but of acceptance for who they are.

Love is the best lesson in life because it teaches your heart.

Love is boundless. It does not know the beginning nor the ending.

Love is enduring.

Love is an invisible connection of hearts and meeting of minds.

LOVE is indefinable. It is a touch of magic into the world of realities.

LOVE is a dance with silent music and invisible steps.

LOVE is a bond only the two of you understand.

LOVE is a sweet entrapment.

Most of all, I have realized that a dream relationship is a selfless act of love between two people. It does not matter whether you are together or not but what’s important is the realization that love is powerful enough to cross bridges of distance and to fade away the pain of longing.

The paradox of love; only the hearts could feel and only the hearts could hear when it whispers.

Pages of My Life- The Journey to the World of the Doctor of Jurisprudence

Time is an emblem that signifies the ending and the beginning of each leaf of life. As I turn each page, I never failed to get enthralled with the beauty that life encompasses. I always believe that the splendour of life is hidden in the treasury trove of heart where the trials, trepidations, feats, happiness and successes we have experienced are all kept.

When I was young, my joys were simple. Paper dolls and candies made me think that I was living in the world of fantasy. Then I started weaving dreams. Some of them, I have successfully reached but, majority of them, I have not fulfilled yet.

Two years ago, I thought that my purpose in life was done. My mission was accomplished, and my fate was to finally bid goodbye. I would not say that I was ready. I was devastated and found myself utterly lost with the cruelty bestowed upon me.

The road toward healing was long and arduous. My life had a great avalanche and my world totally crumbled. I blamed nothing but myself for failing to realize the dreams I have written in the stars. They were waiting to be unleashed but I was so hesitant to even dare in trying.

Life however, was full of surprises with its paradoxical complexities. It was a painful yet a beautiful realization for me that the beginning of life was not always where I thought it to be. Life was more than that.

I finally found the courage to stand and face reality with nothing but confidence in my heart. I made it. That leaf of my life was gone and I was ready to start anew.

I lost once but I gained a lot- love, strength and the faith to try again.

When I was at the middle of taking the Qualifying Test for College of Law in the University of Batangas last Saturday, I had so many realizations. But more than anything, I have felt that finally. I was ready to turn another page of my life.

During the interview, swirling emotions overwhelmed me. Thanks to the people who supported and believed in me. I was no longer the teacher who was terrified to try something new. As I stepped on the threshold of the University of Batangas to take up Doctor of Jurisprudence, I knew that chasing my star is within my grasp.

Yes, it would not be easy. However, if I learned to stand once full of scars of the past but with chin lifted then I could do it all over again.

When You Wish Upon the Star

It’s been nine months ago…

Nine months when my battered heart made a wish...
I would’ve thought it impossible…to laugh, to dream, and to love.

I would’ve thought it improbable to share my pains, to color my dreams, and to believe in wishes... but everything changed…because of YOU.

Yes, I was broken, my heart was beaten…

Nine months ago love has changed me… my wish was turned into a reality.

“When you wish upon a star Makes no difference who you are Anything your heart desires Will come to you If your heart is in your dreams No request is to extreme When you wish upon a star As dreamers do.”
Dreams do come true…
