Realizations

In our everyday lives, we meet new, different people. Different faces. Different personalities. Different characters. Some would make us smile, some would make us laugh. Some will make us do crazy things, some will make us do the right thing. And there are some that would just start in a simple "Hello" but then would end up hurting us. People are everywhere and it's constant.. We meet and mingle with them everyday. One of the lessons I'm learning from this fact is that I don't get to judge anyone because I do know that these people have different stories, different pasts. But it's also good to learn and remember to look after myself and though being nice is always an option for me, I'm learning to be cautious.. Because knowing how to deal with people every single day can be tricky, but one thing I'm sure about this is that we learn from them and we grow. We grow to becoming a person that could embrace the reality that we cannot live alone. And we constantly grow as a person who knows how to love.. More and more. -- 271112


I know that I haven't been blogging for a long time and I actually feel a bit bad because there's been heaps of things that happened to me already in the past few months. But, in everything that's happened, all of it can be summed up into what I just posted above -- about meeting new people in our lives. I mean, this year has been a very significant one because I got to meet different people, and I should say that all of them has taught me something. I am thankful for all the people I've met. New friends. Awesome friends actually. But then, there are some of them who inflicted a great impact in me. You know, changed some of my perspectives in life. I look at it as a good thing though sometimes it does hurt. The fact that people can hurt you without them even knowing can be such a surprise especially when they don't even have the intentions to hurt you. Hence, you take the happenings in a mature way and become wise on understanding that everything happens for more than one reason.

Before, I used to believe that everything happens for a reason. Just one. But now, I came to realize that things, they don't just happen for just one reason. There are many, different reasons why they all happen. It's amazing to know and realize that, isn't it? Well, it's pretty amazing for me anyway. Why? Because along the way, you can see yourself morphing -- Becoming a person that is able to have a better understanding about yourself and about others, and I believe that this is such a great thing. Being capable to accept how people think, how they react on different kinds of situation, how they see things, how they feel.. makes you or gives you the capacity on seeing yourself on how you deal with all of it as well. And you also learn that it is possible to have no regrets in life because of the decisions you make. It is then by understanding that though we make mistakes, these mistakes can be lessons learned. And I do believe that constant learning about life is what makes us human. It is what makes us alive. So, though it may hurt (often times), we should be thankful why things happen the way they happen.

Let me end up this blog with one of the verses in the bible which is also significant on what I'm pointing out here. I actually came across this in my bible when there was this one night, a couple of weeks ago, that I couldn't get to sleep and it's like 4 o'clock in the morning already -- "For your heart will always be where your riches are." Matthew 6.21. I can say that this is linked to the realization about accepting different people in our lives. If we have the heart that is ready to accept anyone or anything, a heart that doesn't judge, a heart that is willing to embrace change, then we learn how to be happy and contented. And I believe that it is also true that when you have the heart such as this, people will always remember who you are and what they have become having you in their lives as well. So, let's make our hearts rich. Rich in kindness, rich in faith, rich in love.
