I Am Proud (The Random Thoughts of The Happy Well-Being)

My life is not perfect but I know what I need to do make it better.

There are things in life that I can’t control but there are also things that are so easy to get or change if I have the will to make them happen.

Those things I’ve learned from the past really taught me how to appreciate things even the very slight ones.

I keep on telling myself that things happen for a reason.

I would never be able to get all the things I have now if it’s not because of my dedication and hard work.

I would never be able to acquire these things if it’s not because of God’s assistance.
I have the privilege to buy those things I want and get what I need the most.

Things are temporary but God is smart enough to give things to his people while they are still living in this temporary world.

Sure, a wise man can acquire, gather and create a lot of things but still limited. Only God has the power to create every single thing limitless.

I am lucky enough to be called the son of God.

I may not have all the credentials that other people have, may not have enough knowledge to earn more, may not have the strength to build new possessions,.

But I am so proud to say that I am inside the true Church of Christ and I can shout to the word that I am a proud member of the Iglesia Ni Cristo!

Music is Equal To Life

Music has always been my life. My day starts with music: I jump out of  the bed and turn on my CD Player before I brush my teeth in the morning. When I write and think, I listen to the music to be inspired and keep going for the day’s chores. When I’m taking a shower, I will crank the stereo up and listen to my favorite band. And before I go to sleep, I’ll grab my iPod and listen to my favorite lullaby songs. I honestly don’t know what life would be like without music, I don’t think I ever really wanted to know.

Instead of writing some stuff about my life, I paused for a little bit today and decided that I would just ask anyone and everyone to share their favorite music memory or song when you read this post of mine. I’m not doing this to push for numbers or anything, I just really want to see what kind of music people love to listen to or cherish it in their lives. Please feel free to post whatever it may be that you really, really want. It’s either an artist, an event, a memory, or whatever music related experience you hold near and dear to your heart. I will give you one of my favorite memories just to be fair.

One day, about eight or nine years ago, I had been sick for a week because of fever and cold with an unbearable headache when I was left alone in our home with no one else since my parents needed to go to work. But when I saw the CD placed on the center table that my mother bought, I grabbed it and went back to my bedroom and listened to it. The CD was from Josh Groban’s self-titled album. The song that help me recovered and feel at ease while waiting for my parents to come home was the Vincent (Starry, Starry Night). It really help me recovered so fast than usual. (Thanks to the beautiful melody of music, amazing lyrics of the song and angelic voice of Josh!) From that day, I memorized the lyric of the song and always sing it in my head or listen to it every time I got sick. It is indeed my most effective cure! It was not a medicine that provided by a doctor or anybody, it was the power of music that helped me embrace  and appreciate life and keep moving forward. Your turn! 🙂 So what’s your favorite music or song and why? See you around! Mack

You’ll Never Walk Alone (15/04/2012)

Today, I went home to the place where I grew up and where I got the chance to know myself better. For the last two weeks, it has been so hard for me to accept about the things that have been happening with my life. I thought being alone is not a favorable thing for me to do as of this moment. Instead of feeling the anxiety and being depressed, I would rather go home to unwind, to find myself or go to somewhere for a walk, where I can see more people.

My sentiments are always correct and I cannot lie to them. Though I can get along with different people and go to some places, I know deep inside that there’s still something missing. I tried to lie to myself that everything is going to be fine, but as long as I am convincing myself for what I’m believing is right, there is still wrong about what I’m doing.

Eventually, it made me realize that life is not just a matter of getting what we wanted, but providing time, most especially on how to make a difference. It made me realize that I underestimated myself and I stopped believing because of the thought that people can learn more than me, people can be much better than me and people can be much smarter than me in everything. I have failed to believe in myself that I could do something in my own special ways. I am different and so are the people that God created. As the saying goes, “we are all created differently with a purpose, and that is to appreciate life with those people around you.”

I have learned that nothing in this life comes easy and I have to pay the price. I can make things move ahead in my way with a perfect timing. People can say anything they want, but no one can ever tear down my faith and principles. I know that these are just the tests that I have to surpass. And with determination, I will pursue my dreams until I see myself on the top again. I will never walk alone because my family and God will be there to back me up. There should be trials and tough times to face. I could be fallen again for sure, but I will persevere because I believe through these, I can learn a lot and I will be stronger enough to face another challenge.
