I will count this day a separate life.
I will remember that those who have fewest regrets
are those who take each moment as it comes
for all that it is worth.
Today Series: 21/22
From the Book of Og Mandino: Mission Success (The Seeds of Success)
This quote from this favorite book is what I almost live by as my personal motto… (you see, it is also the tagline of this blogsite….)
This moment is all that we have, time is our companion, we are the maker of our life…
the choice on how we live it is within our power…
I will face the world with goals set for this day,
but they will be attainable ones,
not the vague, impossible variety declared by those who make a career of failure.
I realize that you always try me with a little, first,
to see what I would do with a lot.

Letter to Aliya when she was 7 months old… in my tummy…
Written in Boracay, April 2, 2008…
Hi, we are here right now in Boracay. Capturing every moment of this day with you. I am so happy you’ve arrived in our life. I am grateful for your coming…. I love you… and may you become a great inspiration of love and hope and joy in our home. I am happy… but I am “dreadful” for the fear that I might fail you in the future. But know, my baby, that mommy will always try… always dream… always be strong for you and your brothers. I will do whatever I can do that i know is best. I love you and welcome soon…. Mommy.
I will forget yesterday, with all its trials and tribulations, aggravations and setbacks, angers and frustrations.
The past is already a dream from which I can neither retrieve a single word nor erase any foolish deeds.
I will resolve, however, that if I have injured anyone yesterday through my thoughtlessness,
I will not let this day’s sun set before I make amends,
and nothing I do today will be of greater importance.

(“Today” series is featuring Og Mandino’s “Seeds of Success” from the book “Mission:Success”…
this is my sort of scroll of prayers I recite almost every morning, to guide me through the day!…
I want now to share this with you!)
Today Series: 2/22
The pictures were taken at our favorite farm that witnessed a lot from our childhood days! Taken during sunset, that’s also our favorite time to play!
We just had a great, great time during and after our gift-giving activity, the day before Christmas! If there is one moment that I will choose to just “stood still,” this will be it! I came to believe that life is CREATED for moments like these. No other trimmings, no other frills and fuss, no fancy place and ambiance… but just laughs, fun, and great time… surrounded by family and loved ones and nature and blessings! (Made even better with the presence of my brothers Lito and RIcky and their kids, especially Chuko and Deanne plus Te Leli! – whom we have not seen for 10 years….)
Memories are made of these! Wow!
it was a 4-day stay at boracay (May 2009) and it was very refreshing, fun, relaxed and haaay sarap! Esp when it was spent with family!
Im beginning to love the place (this is our second visit), it seems that the world is created for my own pleasure and awe. I remembered to thank God for again touching me with His amazing blessings! I will treasure my moment with His “sunsets” (on all different colors), with His “sunrises” (even when it rains), His fine sand (cant get enough of it). Looking at it, feeling it, makes me feel blessed. It reminds me to feel grateful, that this is a reward. that this are my bonus days!
I soooo love it….
I loooove the memorable moments with the kids and papi. Saya, no pressure, no schedule, no time (literally no watch, we just rely on our shadows), no hang-ups! Just living for that moment only!
Feeling ko, when in Boracay, it doesnt matter what shape or size you are, whatever attire you’re in, in shorts, in bare-all, or conceal-some… nobody mind… (at least to me…. I think they dont mind me, as there are other shapely girls around!)
Anyway, “feeling at home” talaga when you are in boracay, as if you are a native, a familiar folk, or frequent visitors. No inhibitions, no pakialam, no boundaries, no discrimination (again, i think on women’s point of view, since men tend to look the other way). As if your in commune with everything and everyone! Awesome feeling!
Just love boracay! (and im not even a “beach” person)!
Obvious ba, im still in bora blog… sa susunod uli!
