Love is a Choice

I had a recent conversation with someone, and there I realized something about love… that it is a choice, more than a feeling. 

 

Love is not a feeling, but a choice

It is mostly about commitments, more than the joys

Love is about making decisions,

To love her for and against whatever reasons.

 

Love is a choice because the euphoric feelings may fade away,

But it’s up to you if you choose to continue and stay.

Love is a choice because the butterflies may have fluttered away,

But it’s up to you to bloom flowers for them and make a way.

 

Love is a choice, and not just an emotion

Feelings are fleeting, and we don’t have love potions

Which could bring back the excitement and sparks between you

It is your choice to decide if your love is really true.

 

Truth be told, it’s not your choice who you’re attracted to

Your differences aren’t your fault, even the everyday- “argue”,

But it’s your choice to endure and let your heart bleed,

Because it’s your choice to whom you want to stay in love with.

 

Again, Love is a choice, and not a feeling

Because these are fleeting and you”ll never know how much time is stealing

It is up to you to make choices that knowingly hurts

It is your choice to be brave enough to try, and never fret.

 

Love is a choice, this is what I believe

I won’t let these feelings try and let myself get deceived

Love is a choice, this is what my heart roars

And I choose to love someone, forevermore.

Possibilities Behind Fears

I was scanning my old journal and found this poem, not knowing how or why I wrote it. 

 

“Not this time, Not anymore.

Please don’t repeat what has happened before.

Don’t bring back the anxiety and confusion,

While you love me without giving resolution.

 

But if you truly love me, I’d give you a chance

To tell me something with just one glance.

Be brave and stop hiding what you feel,

Shout my name to the world and tell me your love is real.

 

But if ever, you can’t do that for me,

Please just leave and stop making me see

How you could love me but can’t stand for us;

How your weakness has taken us away from what we could have.”

Sun and Moon

You are the Moon,

On an early morning

Same with the moon,

You’ll be there showing.

But just like the moon,

You’ll fade away

And I hope just like the moon,

You’ll come back again.

I am the Sun,

On a bright new day

Just like the sun,

I’m seen all day

But just like the sun,

I’ll leave my place

Because I know,

Someone’s there to replace.

How can life keep us apart

When we love each other very much

How could they think sun and moon have no hearts,

When all these time they craved each other’s touch.

Hoping that time would come for us

In between day and night

When the moon and sun would meet at last,

And together they’ll bring out their shining lights.”

Regrets

It is hard to decipher the meaning of this poem and seems unrealistic. It is only I who have experienced, therefore it is only I who can understand. 

“To the guy I just lost,

Where are you, where are you now?

I am wondering if you’re thinking of me somehow

The same regret I have for not telling you…

Not telling how much I feel for you.

 

I remember how you’ve read my mind,

Your supernatural powers, and how you were so kind

I wish you could tell how I feel,

The same way you told me my school and everything so real.

 

If you were able to read my mind,

Why can’t you take a peek on my heart?

Why could you tell facts about me,

and not see how much you make me crazy?

 

To the guy I’ve lost, I am here

Unsure if i shall shed a tear

Or be patient waiting for you,

To finally tell you that i’m so sure I love you.”

Choose Passion over Money

money_vs_passion
(c) to owner

Some times in our lives, we would have to face some challenging questions to answer and decide, for ourselves. Just like,

Passion or Money?

We all know that choosing our career is a very serious and important matter to decide. It’s like planning of how your future would become. Inevitably, we may encounter two different paths we can choose from, one’s about money, and the other one’s about passion. But between these two, what is the best path we should take?

“How do you see yourself 10 years from now?” 

While others are imagining themselves wearing a white gown, being a doctor; carrying a suitcase, being a lawyer; writing on a blackboard, being a teacher; or loading a gun, being a policeman; I am here, visualizing myself holding a pen, being a writer. While others have chosen a career where they can make a good living, I have chosen my passion, maybe i’m not as rich as how I am expected to be, but I am full of learning because I have chosen to do what I love to.

Choosing between passion and money, is like choosing between your heart and mind. And they would always say, “Follow your heart, and so Follow your passion.” 

Following your passion is a brave thing to do. It is a sacrifice and a risk you would take about your future. You may regret it, and fail, but also, you may succeed and be happy. But for me, this is the best thing to do.

We love to do something because we are good at this thing, and have skills to do it. Yes, skills. Skills are given to us by God, as a clue about our purpose in life. Surely, we are not made to earn money because we can’t take them with us in heaven. We are made to live our purpose and achieve our dreams. “If you can’t figure out your purpose, figure out your passion. For your passion will lead you right into your purpose,” Bishop TD. Jakes said. We are created for one purpose to fulfill, so follow your passion, and live your that purpose.

The good thing about working your passion is that you wouldn’t feel like working at all. You would enjoy every tasks, and you wouldn’t feel stressed and tired like how other people usually feel about their jobs. Choosing what you love to do and working for it will bring you happiness and courage in your job, which success would surely requires to come for you. Like what Arthur Buddhold once said, “Follow your passion, and success will follow you.”

People should start to realize that life isn’t just about making money, building a mansion, and everyday shopping. It is mostly about achieving your dreams and being happy. It is best to follow our passion because it is a barely controllable emotion we cannot ignore. Everyone, stay true to yourself and figure out what you love to do. Always remember that money shouldn’t be our main goal, instead, we should pursue our dreams and do the best that we can to prove other people that passion never fails. Don’t let money limit your dreams. Be brave and take the courage. I believe that the only courage that one person truly needs is the courage to follow her/his dreams.

Book Reviews

Boy Band (REVIEW)

Title: Boy Band

Author: Jacqueline  E. Smith

Rating: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

*The author of this book sent me this paperback copy in exchange for an honest review, so don’t expect anything less than that. I will always give an honest review, be it a positive one or a negative one.*

Synopsis:

Sam Morneau is Melissa Parker’s best friend. He’s also a member of The Kind of September, basically the hottest boy band on the planet.

After two and a half years, Mel is all too familiar with the day-to-day occurrences that come with being a member of the band’s inner circle, including hectic schedules, passionate fans, and gossip-mongering celebrity girlfriends.

Now, with the release of the group’s third album just weeks away, their lives have never been crazier and Mel is doing everything she can to keep up, all the while trying to cope with the ridiculous rumors that follow the band everywhere they go and pretending that she isn’t harboring a secret and hopeless crush on Sam.

It’s weird enough being in love with your best friend. It’s even weirder when the rest of the world is in love with him, too.

REVIEW:

I had so much fun reading this book. This is the kind of book i usually enjoy. A book with such a cute and adorable characters. All i could say about this book is that it’s truly cute. I’m so glad i read it during vacation, it erases my boredom.

Honestly, i don’t have a thing when it comes to boy bands. But “The Kind of September” changed the way i think about boy bands. They are very cute and adorable. I love all of them, from the stars to the inner circles of the band, they are all so much fun to read.

This book surprised me, i never thought of liking this book so much as I liked it now. The typical love story of bestfriends made this book seems shining. The situations, the conversations, all are very understandable. I mean, there are books i just can’t get over with, not because they are so good but because there are parts i couldn’t understand.

“It’s weird enough being in love with your best friend. It’s even weirder when the rest of the world is in love with him, too.”- Jacqueline Smith

Okay, been there, done that. I used to have a crush on my bestfriend and i feel sorry for Melissa. I understand what she’s feeling, the anxiety, the brokenness, i could feel right through her. At the same time, i felt very happy when she and Sam just kissed. I felt so happy it made me want to celebrate!

Reading this book would make you wish having a Sam Morneau  in your life, or a Melissa Parker. They are both such an amazing characters! Not just that, this would make you wish no person like Tara Meeks will enter your life. Only readers would understand.

Just a fun trivia, i finished the book without even having a bookmark. Does it make sense? Yes, because it just proves that this book would make you get hooked up reading, you won’t be needing any bookmark at all!

Again, this book is perfect and amazing. You would want to read some more of the author’s works. Ms. Jacqueline Smith is truly amazing, she must be thankful of having such talent to capture the hearts of every readers through her words. Because really, she captured mine. And i’m sure your hearts would feel the same way, too.

Thank you for reading!
