It Happened for a Reason

Tuesday, February 25, 2014

If I could only turn back time and change my mistakes before, I will.
The problem is, I can't.
I know for a fact that a lot of people are wishing the same thing. If only there's a time machine in this world, the inventor would be a billionaire now. But there isn't. We always ask God why it happened. It may sound cliche but everything happens for a reason. Some of us realized it too late already. Sometimes, we tend to overcome a mistake by another mistake. 

As I write this, someone from the past sent me a message on Facebook. This post is not supposed to be about our "past" but my "own" mistakes. Since it happened, I guess it's a perfect timing. Lol. He told me that he's very sorry for his decision before. To be honest, I wonder why he's saying it to me just now. Not when my heart's still longing for him. Hello, it's been what? 4 years! But like what I've said, it happened for a reason. Maybe if he talked to me when there's still a chance "for us" before, I would be so happy that time and I'm sure of it. I might fly into clouds and dream of endless love. I might give him another chance. And maybe, we will get back together.
But, if he talked to me when I still haven't moved on, I may not have grown up. I may not be matured enough to understand things and still, be immature. I may not have explored what I can do without him. And I may not have had a relationship with my current boyfriend.
What happened to us hurt me. Actually, it broke me. But you know what? I am thankful because it happened. I am thankful because my heart was broken. Not just broken, but torn apart. Why? Because I became happier. I became matured. I learned to love myself. I became a better me. And I'm very thankful because of what happened, I met my one and only love (Fine, I'm cheesy. Happy? Hahaha)
In life, we have to learn how to accept things because that's the only way to move on and be happy.
Anyway, on to my outfit lol. I wore this during the launching of the first-ever AVP of 90th Celebration of School of Education, Liberal Arts, Music and Social Work in CEU-Manila. I am so honored to be part of the team, to think that there are just few and chosen students only. I can't express my happiness in doing such a successful event. 
We had late night meetings, and when I say late, I mean it. Our meeting or shooting last for about so long that it took us to stay in school 'til morning. Another thing I can't forget during the shoot is that my schedule this semester is only 3 days but I always go to school almost everyday. 
In spite of those things, I am still happy. I really enjoyed. I feel like I was working for a job in media. It prepared me to face the real world. And what I'm most happy about... I'm part of the history now!
Not only to that, there's another thing to celebrate... my bff, Ana, turned 19! :)
Have you noticed my make-up and hair? Well, if you do, I'm proud to say that I'm the one who did it. I'm soooo happy that it turned out great, the fact that I'm not the kind of girl who put make-up on a daily basis. I really don't have any idea on how to do my hair and make-up so you can't blame me if I feel so happy on my look. Thanks to YouTube lol. 
Am I sleepy? No. I'm just showing off my eyeshadow. Hahahaha kidding!
