Gusto Ko

  • Gusto ko magtanim ng mga herbs dito sa balaytsina ko. Gusto ko matuto kung paano at kung anong lutuin sila dapat isama para mas sumarap ang pagkain. Iba pa rin kasi siempre yung fresh herbs.
  • Gusto ko  magkaroon ng malaking fruit juicer. As in yung malaki , yung kasya at pwede nyang pigain ang isang buong epol o kerots para wala ng hassles sa pagbabalat at paghihiwa. Kaso kelangan ko pa yata maghintay ng fasko para humiling kay Senta Klos.
  • Gusto ko bumalik mag gym. At sana next month na.
  • Gusto ko magkaroon ng maraming pink T-shirts at tsaka na rin ng yellow.
  • Gusto ko sumakay sa Pasig River Ferry pag nakapunta ulit ng Manila. Wala lang, gusto ko lang ma-experience at makalanghap ng mabahong tubig ng Pasig River.
  • Gusto ko  sa susunod na may manakit sa damdamin ng mga anak kong mga inosente…tatagain ko na!
  • Gusto ko bago at palitan na ang 14 taong gulang na  Krismas Tree namin sa Pasko.
  • Gusto ko makapag-travel ako ulit sa labas ng bansa, siguro next year. Pag-iipunan ko. Help me Lord at goodluck suckin!
  • Gusto ko matupad lahat ng gusto ko. 😀

a girl asked her ex-boyfriend, "what made you leave me?"

the guy answered, "i tried a day without you…

just one day of not thinking of you,

not even hearing your voice…

guess what?

i realized…

i still feel complete even without you…"

the girl just stood there,

then she felt it,

a tear fell from her eye,

she wiped it and took a deep breath and looked straight into the guy’s eye

and just smiled…

it is never the tears that measure our pain,

sometimes,

it is the smile we fake,

just to show them that we are okay…

leaving a love you’ve suddenly outgrown can be heartbreaking,

but it also shows you are strong enough to walk away

from a relationship that no longer makes you happy…

moving out of your comfort zone can be down right scary,

but it also proves just how brave you are to take on the unknown…

we always do a little  growing up every time we do a little letting go.
