Noon, sa tuwing nagtatagpo ang mga landas natin, naiinis ako sa sitwasyon natin dahil hindi tayo magtugma… kaya napagbubuntunan ko ang buhok ko.

Nagpapagupit ako ng sobrang iksi.

Maraming pagkakataon laging ganun ako.

Hanggang sa nasabi ko dati… pag ok na ako, magpapahaba ulit ako ng buhok.

At ngayon, mahaba na ulit ang buhok ko. At sumusulpot ka ulit sa buhay ko.

Pero ngayon, masasabi ko, ayoko ng pagupitan ang buhok ko.

Ibig sabihin noon, mas mahal ko na ang sarili ko, kaysa sa iyo…

In your life, you’ll make note of a lot of people. Ones with whom you shared something special, ones who will always mean something. There’s the one you first kissed, the one you first loved, the one you lost your virginity to, the one you put on a pedestal, the one you’re with…and the one that got away.

Who is the one that got away? I guess it’s that person with who everything was great, everything was perfect, but the timing was just wrong. There was no fault in the person, there was no flaw in the chemistry, but the cards just didn’t fall the right way, I suppose.

I believe in the fact that ending up with someone, finding a longtime partner that is, does not lie merely in the other person. I can actually argue that an equal part, or maybe even the greater part, has to do with the matter of timing. It has to do with you being ready to settle down and commit to someone in a way that goes beyond the little niceties of giddy romance.

How often have you gone through it without even realizing it? When you’re not ready to commit in that mature manner, it doesn’t matter who you’re with, it just doesn’t work. Small problems become big; inconsequentials become dealbreakers simply because you’re not ready and it shows. It’s not that you and the person you’re with are no good; it’s just that it’s not yet right, and little things become the flashpoint of that fact.

Then one day you’re ready. You really are. And when this happens you’ll be ready to settle down with someone. He or she may not be the most perfect, they might not be the brightest star of romance to ever have burned in your life, but it’ll work because you’re ready. It’ll work because it’s the right time and you’ll make it work. And it’ll make sense, it really will.

So that day comes when you’re finally making sense of things, and you find yourself to be a different person. Things are different, your approach is different, you finally understand who you are and what you want, and you’ve become ready because the time has truly arrived. And mind you, there’s no telling when this day will come. Hopefully you’re single but you could be in a long-term relationship, you could be married with three kids, it doesn’t matter.

All you know is that you’ve changed, and for some reason, the one that got away, is the first person you think about.

You’ll think about them because you’ll wonder, “What if they were here today?” You’ll wonder, “What if we were together now, with me as I am and not as I was?”. That’s what the one that got away is. The biggest “What if?” you’ll have in your life.

If you’re married, you’ll just have to accept the fact that the one that got away, got away. Believe me, nomatter how fairy tale you think your marriage is, this can happen to the best of us. But hopefully you’re mature enough to realize that you’re already with the one you’re with and this is just another test of your commitment, one which will just strengthen your marriage when you get past it. Sure, you’ll think about him/her every so often, but it’s alright. It’s never nice to live with a “might have been,” but it happens.

Maybe the one that got away is the one who’s already married. In which case it’s the same thing. You just have to accept and know that your memories of that person will probably bring a nice little smile to your lips in the future when you’re old and gray and reminiscing. But if neither of that is the case, then it’s different. What do you do if it’s not yet too late? Simple…find him, find her. Because the very existence of a “one that got away” means that you’ll always wonder, what if you got that one?

Ask him out to coffee, ask her out to a movie, it doesn’t matter if you’ve dropped in from out of nowhere. You’d be surprised, you just might be “the one that got away” as well for the person who is your “the one that got away.”

You might drop in from out of nowhere and it won’t make a difference.

If the timing is finally right, it’ll all just fall into place somehow and you know, I’m thinking, it would be a great feeling in the end, to be able to say to someone, “Hey you, you’re the one that almost got away.” =)

Chito:
Mabuti pa sa lotto,
may pag-asang manalo.
Di tulad sa’yo,
Imposible.

Prinsesa ka,
Ako’y dukha.
Sa TV lang naman kasi

At kahit mahal kita,
wala akong magagawa
Tanggap ko oh, aking sinta
Pangarap lang kita.

Happee:
Ang hirap maging babae,
kung torpe U lalake
Kahit may gusto ka,
di mo masabi..

Hindi ako yung tipo,
nagbibigay motibo.
Conservative ako kaya,
Di maaari.

At kahit mahal kita
wala akong magagawa.
Tanggap ko, oh aking sinta
Pangarap lang kita.

I posted this last May 23, 2011 on my Multiply account, because I’m so pissed of so-called “music lovers”… reposting this because Multiply will soon delete my post :/

Don’t get me wrong. I grew up in all kinds of music, classical or basagan ng tenga pa yan. Same with Tagalog or chungchangwokuala hai! lyrics pa yan. That’s how broad my musical taste is. So don’t fret if I support non-OPM songs. Of course I support and love OPM! Syempre, yan na nga lang yung naiintindihan ko eh, di nakaka-nosebleed. Walang papantay sa musika natin. Pero I believe a true music lover is open to all kinds of music, and know how to appreciate and respect it. So if I listen to other music such as KPOP, JPOP, MandoPop it doesn’t mean I lost my faith in OPM… And come on, ano ba pinagkaiba ng mga yan sa English songs na pinapakinggan din ninyo? Hindi naman OPM yun, di ba? Kung makadarag naman kayo ng tao dahil nakikinig ng kpop/jpop/mandopop eh kung sino kayong malinis dyan… tsk. Don’t be hypocrite people. Respect other’s music preferences. And don’t judge someone just because he’s listening to a non-Filipino music… it’s not like he’s betraying the country. Yes, as a Filipino, we should be patriotic and support our own, but I think it’s not bad to listen and be open to other music.

And for the record: I love OPM/English/Mandopop/Kpop/Jpop. I love them all because each has different musical styles… I hope people will learn to understand that.

by Max Ehrmann

Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.

As far as possible without surrender
be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
and listen to others,
even the dull and the ignorant;
they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons,
they are vexations to the spirit.

If you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain or bitter;
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.

Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs;
for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals;
and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself.
Especially, do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love;
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment
it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years,
gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.

Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe,
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God,
whatever you conceive Him to be,
and whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful.
Strive to be happy.

(Desiderata >> Latin: “desired things”)
