“At times it may seem as though you and your past are one. Sometimes we fail to differentiate between what has happened to us and who we are today. If you have a hard time getting beyond that damaging mindset let me encourage you right now. You are not your past Although you are changed and shaped by past experiences who you were yesterday does not control the person you have the potential to become tomorrow.”
― Sue Augustine, When Your Past Is Hurting Your Present
Past is past, you cannot change it! All you can do is look forward to the future. That’s what they always say BUT how can you look forward when every time you decide for your future, you will always be haunted by memories especially when you are alone and vulnerable? Well, I think that’s the consequences of the spicy, sweet mistakes you’ve done before.
If given a chance to fix half of it, I will always remind myself these things:
1. Consult GOD for everything
2. Listen to your parents
2. Love yourself first
3. Learn how to say NO and;
4. Don’t talk to strangers
By sticking to these rules, I guess, my future is saved!
Admit it, when you are in a romantic relationship with someone, you sometimes take that person for granted without even knowing it. But it doesn’t mean that you’ll replace him and you’ll start looking for another lover.
We also all know that there is always one person who loves more in a relationship. No two people are alike, so it’s (morelikely) impossible to have two people love each other with the same degree of passion.
The song “When i was your Man” by Bruno Mars makes sense and sounds very realistic to me. While we are so busy keeping up with the world and in fulfilling our dreams, we tend to forget even the simplest act of endearment like sending her a message in the morning and letting her know that you think of her.
We are sometimes too dumb to realize that we are losing the one we love without even noticing it. Many people can relate to this song. There are guys who are always playing with girl’s feelings and when they find a girl they really like and feel love towards, they treat her wrong and she ends up going to a guy who may or may not treat her better. But this does not only apply to guys. Girls can treat guy just as bad as guys treat some girls.
Men think that they had already done so much when they are courting girls: taken her out to dinner and romanced her, bought her flowers and took her out dancing. You’ve gone to the movies, met her friends and family. A few years later, the relationship is steady & everything’s fine. The girl is yours and you can stop trying so hard and think that loving her should be enough.
This makes complete sense to a man. But not to a woman, not to us. In our mind, you must continue to court us…forever.. yes forever. This sounds completely exhausting but that’s how love works Dude! It takes too much effort, too much time, and way too much energy to love.
Men are not perfect neither are women. What I just want to say is that love can be cruel sometimes if you don’t know how “give and take” works, you’ll end up broken-hearted.
June 16 is Father’s Day. But why is this the chosen day to celebrate Father’s day?
As I searched the web, I found out that Sonora Smart Dodd from Spokane, Washington is the “Mother of Father’s Day”, she is the founder of this annual celebration. Their mother died when she was 16 years old so her father, William Jackson Smart, raised her and her siblings.
Father’s day started when Sonora heard a Mother’s Day sermon at Central United Methodist Church in Spokane, at that moment, she was inspired to propose that fathers should receive equal recognition.
So, what do you have for your Dad this Father’s Day? There are a lot of things that you can do for him even if you only have a limited budget.
Here are some ideas:
1. Prepare dinner for him, serve his favorite food and don’t forget his favorite beer.
2. Let him enjoy his day, don’t interrupt if he’s watching basketball.
3. Wash your own clothes, clean your house, wash your Father’s car, let him rest.
4. If you and your Dad love movies, buy DVDs and watch Man of Steel, Fast & The Furious or;
5. Treat him to a sports bar, order fish and chips and some wings maybe
Remember, everyday is HIS day. Love and serve your Dad everyday. I know you knew your Dad well so I’m sure you’ll think of other ways to make him happy.
