Beautiful Moment

A forwarded email by my hubby:

Beautiful moment

When one beautiful moment ends, another begins. Do not hold so tightly that you miss the beauty altogether.

With a thankful heart, enjoy the goodness that comes your way in things great and small. The way to make sure you never lose it is to simply let it be.

In good time the joys of life come, one after another. Be open and accepting of what is now here, and you'll connect with the abundance that is all around you.

Each moment is a blessing. Treasure its unique gifts and do not rush to the next one, or worry that the last one was insufficient.

Relish the beauty that is now, and know that there will be more. Fully live and appreciate what you have right here and now.

In this beautiful moment is great and profound treasure. Let it be, and it is always yours.

-- Ralph Marston

--> True...sometimes we tend to dwell too much on the past or in the future, that we fail to see the beauty of today...

Treasure every moment you have. As the saying goe…

King of Pop

LOS ANGELES – Michael Jackson, the "King of Pop" who once moonwalked above the music world, died Thursday as he prepared for a comeback bid to vanquish nightmare years of sexual scandal and financial calamity. He was 50.Jackson died at UCLA Medical Center after being stricken at his rented home in Holmby Hills. Paramedics tried to resuscitate him at his home for nearly three-quarters of an hour, then rushed him to the hospital, where doctors continued to work on him."It is believed he suffered cardiac arrest in his home. However, the cause of his death is unknown until results of the autopsy are known," his brother Jermaine said. Police said they were investigating, standard procedure in high-profile cases.

I am no fan of Michael Jackson. But I do like some of his songs. For his songs hav…

Hurting...

but trying hard not to...

but some people just don't think before they act (or speak).

some just keep on hurting you deliberately. some unconsciously.

either way, it still hurts too much especially when the one hurting you is someone who claims to love you.

too much drama in life...it sucks...

sometimes it makes one think that you are not important enough or nobody cares.

truth is, they do care. but not enough to know that they are already hurting you.

sometimes just letting go, moving on and thinking happy thoughts help ease the pain you are feeling.

but sometimes, the people who hurt you prevent you from letting go as they keep on hurting and hurting you.

it's hard to live in a world where people don't know how to express their feelings and don't know how to
be sensitive to what others may feel.

sometimes we just can't help but feel tired of being so helpless, abandoned, rejected, and neglected...

and sometimes we even have to beg for someone to give us attention.

it is so ir…

Just Smile...

I have always been and always will be an Eheads fan. I practically grew up listening to their songs. I simply love them.I have an ultimate favorite Eheads song. And sometimes just listening to this song just makes everything bearable. Ely's soft voice, the meaningful lyrics and the nice rhythm just makes this song perfect. And in today's world, where you can see nothing but problems, worries, and anxieties, this song just makes things right...

Lift your head, baby, don't be scared
Of the things that could go wrong along the way
You'll get by with a smile
You can't win at everything but you can try. - Yes, you can always try...It doesn't matter if you win or you lose. What matters is you did everything you can.

Baby, you don't have to worry
'Coz there ain't no need to hurry
No one ever said that there's an easy way - hell, yeah! there's never an easy way...
When they're closing all their doors
And they don't want you anymore
This sounds…

Dilemma

n.A situation that requires a choice between options that are or seem equally unfavorable or mutually exclusive.Usage Problem. A problem that seems to defy a satisfactory solution.Logic. An argument that presents two alternatives, each of which has the same consequence.IN BRIEF: A difficult choice between things that are equally unpleasant.A dilemma (Greek δί-λημμα "double proposition") is a problem offering at least two solutions or possibilities, of which none are practically acceptable; one in this position has been traditionally described as "being on the horns of a dilemma", neither horn being comfortable; or "being between a rock and a hard place", since both objects or metaphorical choices being rough.I’m in a state of dilemma.

What make things harder are the consequences …

Our Weekened Getaway @ Tagaytay (a.k.a. My Post Birthday Celebration)

As mentioned in my previous post, hubby and I were planning to have a weekend getaway in Tagaytay.And thank God it pushed through! The weather was terrific that day despite some rain showers during the week. It was a great gift for me.I was so excited the day before our trip that I wasn’t able to do anything at work. Hehehe…I actually just searched for places to go in Tagaytay.I have been there many times and I wanted to go somewhere we both haven’t been to.Unfortunately, there was not so much choice for us since we will be commuting and most of the unexplored sights in Tagaytay can only be reached if you have your own vehicle with you.Oh well, since hubby and I are together in this trip, it really didn’t matter anymore.So, without further ado, here’s a rundown of our last weekend’s experience:FRIDAY, JUNE 12;It was a holiday but we opted to wake up early so that we could already get ready for our trip.We left our house at around 9:00AM.Tagaytay is very much accessible to public trans…

Rants and Raves of a 26 year-old

Today I woke up wondering if yesterday was really my birthday.Yesterday went by so fast…And I didn’t even have time to reflect on the things that I needed to be thankful for. I have actually been whining about yesterday.I honestly didn’t feel good about anything. I was not happy.I was greeted by friends (who remembered), family and colleagues. Some sincere, some obliged.I used to love my day.But yesterday was entirely different.I didn’t feel anything special about the day. It was just an ordinary day for me. And I felt sad about it.I am actually not used to celebrating my birthday extravagantly. I just do things that I felt like doing for the day. Spend a day off from work, spend time with my loved one, simple dinner with the family, a simple surprise.But yesterday, I only got a few of my wishes.I spent a whole day at work, I spent a few hours with my hubby, and no dinner with family, and no surprise. It was sad, really.My hubby kept telling me to cheer up. But I just couldn’t. I didn…

From the Kurirays!

Thanks Kurirays!! Special Thanks to Yuwan for this Cute e-Card =) Love it!!

Just Another Day

I woke up at 5:30 in the morning and got ready for work.I was not feeling anything new or special.I just felt like today was going to be JUST another day for me.So what makes this day different from the others? It’s my birthday…This is the first time in years that I went to work on my birthday. Why did I even bother getting up early? I should be at home and enjoying myself, right? Oh well…since I didn’t have anyone to celebrate the day with, I decided to just go to work.My hubby couldn’t take a leave from work and that makes me so sad…Oh, to add to my misery, i think i just lost my new umbrella...it saddens me coz i love that umbrella! and it cost me a few hundred bucks!!!
This may not be the worst birthday, but definitely this is not the best.I know I should be happy but I just don’t feel like it.Anyway, the day is just starting…I just hope it gets better from here…Happy 26th Jennyvee! Oh gosh, I’m getting old…

My 1st Kuriray Experience

First things first...what is Kurirays? Who are the Kurirays?

This is how i would define Kurirays:

Kurirays is a group of people from different teams/groups bonded together by their love for fun, stories, and free-flowing laughter. Founded last July 2008, Kurirays used to be called "Lunch mates" (tama ba yuwan? hehe). From a small group of people, it has now evolved into one of the biggest group of friends in our workplace. This is Kurirays...and this is where the fun begins...

Yesterday, we went to dinner with the Kurirays. They were actually celebrating one of their member's promotion as Team Lead. Ate Arlyn, the mommy of the group, has just been officially announced as the Team Lead of the Global Reporting Team. Congrats Ate!

And to add to their celebration, we will also be having our "initiation" into the group. We are the so-called neophyte Kurirays. The get together is also a send-off party to another member, who will be spending a few days in a foreign…

My Mommy Entry # 1

It feels good to tell the world that I'm going to be a mom soon and that Jake's going to be a dad soon...it just feels good to think about it.

But of course carrying a baby inside you isn't easy. A lot of changes has been and is taking place. Sometimes it freaks me out but oftentimes it keeps me amazed.

I just want to share our baby's 1st and 2nd ultrasound images. The 1st one was taken using Transvi ultrasound (that was when we have yet to confirm that I am having a baby). I was 6 weeks pregnant then. The 2nd one was taken using a Pelvic ultrasound. I was on my 19th week then.

The images are just amazing...

Our Wedding Vow

I appreciated the fact that Jake took time to compose his vow. It was a sweet vow. Thought not completely original, I still felt the sincerity in his words. My vow was...ok, as i mentioned before..hahaha...after i heard his vow, i felt quite ashamed of mine! hehehe..well, here goes:

The Bride's Wedding Vow:

Jake,I could never find the words to say what I’m feeling right now. The past 11 years of my life have been nothing but wonderful. Yes, we had our share of misunderstandings and problems but it never hindered us from staying together. A lot of people doubted if this relationship will last because we were too young then, to know how it is to love and be loved…and we’ve proved them wrong. And we have also shown ourselves that love knows no boundaries…and indeed, age doesn’t matter.And now, 11 years has passed and our love for each other still remains and has grown stronger over the years. We are now entering a new chapter in our lives and I am glad that we did it together.Today,…
