What matters in life is not what happens to you but what you remember and how you remember it.

I’m actually stuck in bed, listening to some random music, reflecting about small things that made me happy, and smiling from the lost words, from the beautiful kept memories. Before, when I was so obsessed in finding happiness, I was not seeing the small things that came my way. And now only to realize that those small things have the biggest impact. Quite amazing! And I am quite taken aback from my ignorance to see those precious things.
So what made me happy today? You’ll be surprised of how non- sense it was. But definitely its worth my time and space (in my brain. To keep the beautiful memories)
▶ The Virtual Friend. Quite shockingly, this virtual friend of mine vibered me at four in the morning. It had been months since we last talked ( or should I say vibered/exchanged of emails). I called him my virtual friend because our relationship started with technology and stayed in that medium. Oh, yeah! You might think we met in the net. No. He was my schoolmate back in college. But we were never introduced. We just knew each other because we were batchmates. And he only texts me when he’s drunk or bored. (LOL) It’s fine with me. I learned a lot from him. I learned to be happy, to take a leap of faith, to risk. Thank you, Virtual Friend. And thank you for that morning message and the speechless moments. Lol.
(Plugging) You might want to visit his FB page: The Big Picture We Talked About. It’s one of the FB pages I usually share because it shows positivity about how we deal with life.
▶ Chasing Mavericks. This is actually a movie I saw earlier in the pantry. I just saw the last clips but it was beautiful. What was said was something like this: You got to appreciate life, because it just happens once in a lifetime. ( Ahmm, not sure though of the verbatim. It was something like that. Hahaha)
Yes, life just happens once in a life time. And if we ignore how beautiful it is, then we are not living life; we are not experiencing life. Please be like Jay Moriarity. May his soul rest in peace.
▶ Holy Friday. So what’s good with Holy Friday? Less traffic, less people and serenity. Haha.
▶ Ice Coffee Vanilla. Because it’s my last day at work this week and I was able to finish all the tasks that I should finish, I rewarded myself with my favorite coffee. Hooray for a wonderful day.
▶ New Mantra. Surprise me today, God! I actually learned about this new mantra from a very good friend. And I can say as well that God surprises us with small blessings. It’s up to us if we appreciate what He’s giving us..

You’ll learn, as you get older, that rules are made to be broken. Be bold enough to live on your terms, and never, ever apologize for it. Go against the grain, refuse to conform, take the road less travelled instead of the well- beaten path. Laugh in the face of adversity, and leap before you look. Dance as though EVERYBODY is watching. March to the beat of your own drum. And stubbornly refuse to fit in. - Mandy Hale

Ack on that.
Sad to say I started my day in a not so good mood. Oh! I admit it! I was grumpy. And I was so sleepy. No amount of caffeine could quench my desire to sleep. I am always like this when I don’t have sleep. And the people I encountered today (my agents) made my blood boil at the same time made my brain popped out in my skull. Somehow, their getting into my nerves.
But what made this day extra special?
1. Listening to my girl friends advices about love and relationship and stuff. Hahaha. Yes, it did made my day smile for some reason. I am not sure why. Maybe because, I find it funny at the same time hilarious to be given almost the same advice. Or possible, I was just not expecting it. But as dumbfounded as I can be given the awkward situation, I was actually taking it seriously. You may never know, the things that you may find funny and nonsense now, are the ones that will make sense at all.
2. Sleeping like a log. Just what I need, I suppose.
3. Listening to the new release song of one of my favorite bands, One Republic. ♥
Simple Happiness. Things/ stuffs that’s insignificant at all but actually are the one’s that made you smile. Woohooo.

Hmmm. These books reminded me of the movie Augustus. Full of wanting and searching, of destinies that was to be unfolded, of loving, of crying and of classical music. I know, the books and the movie had different plots, but they had this similarity. Music. Classical music. Though I am not classically informed especially in music, I appreciate a lot of it. Its like actions without words. And even if does not have words, it has emotions, a lot of it.
