Of Living and Loving... and Moving On

"If you're not afraid
Of what love brings
Then endings are beginnings

Of beautiful things...
Its a chance you'll take

A chance you'll win

If someone's gonna find you
First you gotta let them in

Coz love begins with one hello

The hardest part is over

Now its easy letting go "

[One Hello, Randy Crawford]


Sometimes you wonder why all these things are happening to you. In desperation, you ask high heavens why you are being punished. Tragedy after tragedy. Pain after pain. Isn't there a better way of living your life? There are times when you ask yourself why you keep on committing the same mistakes. Haven't you learned your lesson?

But then you sit back and think... Each experience has made you a better person. Each pain has made you more resilient. Have you wondered why?

Yes, this blog was all about pain. It was meant to release all pent up emotions I had for the untimely loss of a husband who meant the world to me. This was supposed to convey the hatred that built up within all corners of my heart. This was supposed to be a memorial for him.

In the end, it became the journal of my life's journey without him... the pain, the struggle, the coping. And then my resurgence.

Just when I thought the sun refused to shine, light suddenly appeared.

I am not a hypocrite. I must admit that amidst the tragedy and pain, I still hoped for a better outcome. Surely I was not molded into the kind of person I am now for nothing. I have learned to count my blessings.

I guess things really happen for a reason. You just have to open up yourself and accept everything that is happening in your life without judgment. I have had missteps and slips, I must admit. But I kept my faith and remained hopeful that things would get better. They always do, right? Of course, we don't stay in a rut for long. Nobody does. You just have to keep on believing. And that's what I did. I'm so glad I did!

Sunshine, sweet sunshine! Thank you for bringing back laughter, light and a big smile into my life.

For so long, I gave up believing that my life would get better. I beat myself up for all of my mistakes, but I'm learning that they have made me so much stronger. I'm so glad that you have sunshine, light, and laughter back in your life:)

We found each other for a reason, I truly believe that! And I believe that reason was to encourage and cheer the other one on.

I am so glad you have come out of the darkness....there is so much sunshine for you to experience!! ENJOY!

Love you girl!

These "things happen for a reason" for an outcome that is good and beneficial, does not apply to everyone. "All things work for good to those who love Him and are called according to His purpose " (Romans 8:28)

PinkLady May 16, 2009 at 10:13 AM  

thank you for that inspiring thought, bingkee. i agree with you that it is faith that leads us out of the dark.

blessings to you! :)

Being happy doesn't mean everything's perfect. It means you decide to see beyond the imperfections.


"Count your blessings. Once you realize how valuable you are and how much you have going for you, the smiles will return, the sun will break out, the music will play, and you will finally be able to move forward to the life that God intended for you with grace, strength, courage and confidence." ~ Og Mandino


If I could wish for my life to be perfect, it would be tempting, but I would have to decline, for life would no longer teach me anything.
