“There’s nothing lonelier than being with the wrong guy.”
Remember the guy that my mom was pairing my with? The one from the states? Well, he’s been sorta making me ligaw…weird huh? in this day and age, one can make ligaw over a thousand miles away…he’s 34 y/o and yet he’s such a romantic…he keeps on saying i love you and that I’m he’s baby and he calls me just that. It’s so sweet of him. And I know that he’s waiting for me to tell him na I love him but I can’t. I told him na I don’t love him. I wasn’t being cruel and he understands. I told him na I have never fallen in love with someone 6 meters away from me nor am I gonna fall in love with someone who is about an ocean away from me…but despite of that he still keeps on telling me na he loves me and that I’m his baby…such a sweetie …but then again…i don’t wanna keep his hopes up nor do I wanna put some insane idea in my head and heart that I love him just because I need to be with someone right now. Right now, my heart is off limits. Pahinga muna ako. After all the bruises, cuts, scrapes and wounds that I got, I need time to heal. When I’ll be ready..my heart will know…
“Best to wait for the one you love than one who is around.
Best to wait for the right one because life is too short to waste on just someone.”

At Darkwinter’s, blog links, she described me–errrr–my blog pala as this :
Beautiful words from an equally beautiful person. Peer through the eyes of a real romantic who seem to have fleed from love’s grasp just to dip her toe in the water. Good things!
In Merry Christmas’ blog, she had this to say :
Her name means beauty in French. So, I guess that says it all.

Get ready for an extremely special, very rare astronomical event: On Tuesday, June 8, the silhouette of Venus will cross the disc of the Sun. It’s like an extraordinary kind of eclipse — the last time it happened was in 1882. This won’t happen again until 2012, and after that not until 2117.
The Strangest Secret
“Our Changing World” Radio Transcript
By Earl Nightingale
When we say “nearly five percent of men and women achieve success” then we have to define success. The following is the best definition we’ve found: “Success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal.”
If a person is working toward a predetermined goal and knows where to go, then that person is successful. If a person does not know which direction they want to go in life, then that person is a failure.
“Success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal.”
Therefore, who succeeds?
The only person who succeeds is the person who is progressively realizing a worthy ideal The person who says, “I’m going to become this”… and then begins to work toward becoming it.
Have you ever wondered why so many men and women work so hard and honestly without ever achieving anything in particular? Why others do not seem to work hard at all and yet get everything? We sometimes think it is the magic touch or pure luck. We often say, “Everything they touch turns to gold.” Have you ever noticed that a person who becomes successful tends to continue this pattern of success? Or on the other hand, how a person who fails seems to continually fail?
Well, the answer is simple — those who succeed have established personal goals.
Success is not the result of making money; making money is the result of success and success is in direct proportion to our service.
Here are five steps that will help you realize success:
Establish a definite goal.
Stop running yourself down.
Do not think of all the reasons why you cannot be successful — instead think of all the reasons why you can achieve success.
Trace your emotions back to childhood — discover where you first got the negative idea you would not be successful — face your fears.
Renew your self-image by writing a description of the person you want to become — Act the part — You are that person!
George Bernard Shaw said:
“People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don’t believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can’t find them, make them.”
Well, that is pretty apparent, isn’t it? And every person who discovered this believed – for a while – that he was the first one to work it out. We become what we think about.
Now, it stands to reason that a person who is thinking about a concrete and worthwhile goal is going to reach it, because that’s what he’s thinking about. And we become what we think about.
Conversely, the man who has no goal, who doesn’t know where he’s going, and whose thoughts must therefore be thoughts of confusion and anxiety and fear and worry, becomes what he thinks about. His life becomes one of frustration and fear and anxiety and worry.
And if he thinks about nothing…he becomes nothing.
So decide now. What is it you want? Plant your goal in your mind. It’s the most important decision you’ll ever make in your entire life. All you’ve got to do is plant that seed in your mind, care for it, and work steadily toward your goal, and it will become a reality.
How do you begin?
First: It is understanding emotionally as well as intellectually that we literally become what we think about; that we must control our thoughts if we’re to control our lives. It’s understanding fully that…”as ye sow, so shall ye reap.”
Second: It’s cutting away all fetters from the mind and permitting it to soar as it was divinely designed to do. It’s the realization that your limitations are self-imposed and that the opportunities for you today are enormous beyond belief. It’s rising above narrow-minded pettiness and prejudice.
Third: It’s using all your courage to force yourself to think positively on your own problems, to set a definite and clearly defined goal for yourself. To let your marvelous mind think about your goal from all possible angles; to let your imagination speculate freely upon many different possible solutions. To refuse to believe that there are any circumstances sufficiently strong to defeat you in the accomplishment of your purpose. To act promptly and decisively when your course is clear. And to keep constantly aware of the fact that you are, at this moment, standing in the middle of your own “acres of diamonds.”
And fourth: Save at least 10 percent of every dollar you earn.
It’s also remembering that, no matter what your present job, it has enormous possibilities – if, you’re willing to pay the price by keeping these four points in mind:
You will become what you think about.
Remember the word “imagination” and let your mind begin to soar.
Courageously concentrate on your goal every day.
Save 10 percent of what you earn.
Finally, take action – ideas are worthless unless we act on them.
Eight Steps to Problem Solving
by: Brian Tracy
There is a simple eight step method for systematic problem solving. By solving problems in an orderly way, you can dramatically increase the power of your thinking.
First, approach the problem with the expectant attitude that there is a logical practical solution just waiting to be found. Be relaxed, calm, confident and clear in your mind.
Second, change your language from negative to positive. Instead of the word “problem,” use the word “situation,” Problem is a negative word while situation is a neutral word. “We have an interesting situation”, is better than, “We have a problem.”
The third step in systematic problem-solving is to define the situation clearly, in writing. “Exactly what is the situation?” Then ask, “What else is the situation?” Sometimes stating the problem in different words makes it much easier to solve.
Fully 50% of situations can be resolved by accurate definition.
Step number four is to, ask “What are all the possible causes of this situation?” Failure to identify the causes or reasons for the situation often causes you to have to solve it again and again. Fully 25% or more of situations can be effectively dealt with by discovering the correct causes.
Step number five is to ask, “What are all the possible solutions?” Write out as many solutions or answers to the situation as possible before moving on. The quantity of possible solutions usually determines the quality of the solution chosen.
Step number six is to “Make a clear decision.” Usually any decision is better than none.
Step number seven is to “Assign clear responsibility for carrying out the decision and then set a deadline for completion and review.” Remember, a decision without a deadline is just a fruitless discussion.
Finally, step number eight is to follow-up, monitor the decision, compare actual results with expected results and then generate new solutions and new courses of action.
Now, here are two ways you can apply this technique to think more creatively.
First, state the problem clearly, in writing, so that you know exactly what it is that you are trying to solve. Ask, “What else is the problem?”
Second, develop as many solutions as you possibly can, including doing nothing, before you make a decision. Quality of ideas is in direct proportion to the quantity that you generate.
