Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, but he who hates correction is stupid
Life scares the s#*t out of me but regret scares me more.

“Nothing worth having comes easy.”
Yesterday at xy’s birthday party, Mark asked me if I’d already gotten “her” to say “yes”.
Without blinking i replied, ” Is getting her “yes” the only goal in courtship Can’t it not be “to love even without expecting any in return?”
I know i sound old fashioned and maybe it’s just me, growing up to my parents love story being shared at the dinner table, but I thought about mark’s question all day on my commute home to QC from Makati. Over the years, I’ve learned that although I can, I now choose not to compel someone to love me back. I’ve grown tired of the “You-owe-me” relationship trend reverberating today. I guess that’s the reason i ended up buying this shirt. Perhaps, seeing this shirt, it helps me remind myself that her “yes” is, indeed, worth having and thus will not come easily.
I am happy and I thank God for the truth of his word where I can, at least, try to love like He does, selflessly and unconditionally. Where, even though I may not receive her precious “yes”, I know I will have loved her the way she deserves to be loved, with all that I am.

i lost 22 pounds in 2 months thru the hiphop abs workout. This month, I tried his new
“Insanity” workout and I almost passed out, turns out i became hypoglycemic because of my meds. Need to be more careful next time.

Got a set of weights (17.5lbs each) at greenhills. The first of many investments in personal health/strength training. :)
Don’t just pray and hope for change, submit to discipline and work toward that change.

if you must give up your rights,
give up your right to be ignorant,
your right to be selfish,
and your right to be apathetic.
“selflessness is practicing your right to give up your rights.”

Some are sorry not because they’re genuinely repentant and regret what they’ve done but only because they got caught. Radical change comes only from a radical desire and commitment to change.
Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan ‘Press On’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.- calvin coolidge
