To All The Fabulous Single Girls

I received this message from a good friend. Beautiful words and substance. It is for every single girl to realize the REAL reason why she's single.
Women are like apples on a tree. The best ones are at the top. Men don't want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they just get the rotten apples from the ground that aren't good but easy. So the apples on top think something is wrong with them when in reality, they are amazing! They just have to wait for the right man to come along, the one who's brave enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree.
For now, just aim to always be the reddest and juiciest apple you could ever be. Stay beautiful! Make yourself worthy to be climbed all the way for. *wink* *wink*

What Might Have Been

I know it is never healthy to think of the "what ifs" of life, but sometimes you can't help but think of what could have happened if you were five minutes earlier in a meeting or if your bestfriend gave you a teddy bear instead of a Barbie doll on your 10th birthday or if you had chosen to date your more attractive suitor. It's sometimes fun to look back and be amazed at the realization that our life depends on the decisions that we make.
Here are my what-might-have-beens...

  1. If I didn't study in Miriam, I would have studied in an equally good school that is far.
  2. If I pursued my ballet classes, I would have reached the toe-shoes level but most probably have quit ballet by now.
  3. If my Mama did not leave for the US, I would be happier.
  4. If I had the money, I would have at least a pair of Jimmy Choos.
  5. If I did not have my hair curled, I would not love my hair now.
  6. If I was not born, you would not be reading this fab blog.
Okay I have to stop here. I just realized how hard it is for me to go back, try to hold on to what's been done, and think of what could have been if this happened or not. Waaahh... labo. The feeling sucks. I guess Jonathan Larson in his musical "Rent" (which is a favorite) is right in saying: "Forget regret... or life is yours to miss... No other course, no other way... no day but today." I guess there's no need to hold on to the past. No need.
