Mountains to Climb and Rivers to Cross

There comes a moment in everyone's life...
There comes a moment in time...
When you come to a river you just have to cross...
Or a mountain you just have to climb.
(song from B.P.'s Attitude series)

There really comes a time for happiness and so for dark days. One cannot experience happiness without having to experience a time for sadness. Whatever it is there will be dark days for the light to shine through... and we all need to go through it in order to appreciate the joy, peace, and the light. There are mountains to climb and rivers to cross... the process is hard but with all that's happening.... glory would be fleeting in the end.
"Have a little laugh at life and look around you for happiness instead of sadness. Laughter has always brought me out of unhappy situations. Even in your darkest moment, you usually can find something to laugh about if you try hard enough." - Red Skelton, Comedian


There are some experiences that brings us to some places where we do not want to be and we just have to remember its all part of the process. We all have our shares of disappointments, sadness, and you name it.

There are things that are unsettling, questions unanswered. In every why.. there is an answer.. we just need to look around... see the signs. There are things that don't work... there are signs that tells you why it doesn't.

There are actions we took that brings us to results that we do not want.... but we must endure it for we caused it. We do not need to blame... we just need to be responsible. We all need to accept everything and be responsible and from there start to live life the way we want it.

Things happen for a reason.... and ALL THINGS work together for GOOD even if what you see are all bad and there seems to be no hope. Don't let your candle flicker and go out in these moments of darkness.... but let it shine..

Along the way there are people who stayed and accepted us for who we are despite all the flaws.. they see the perfection. We must not fail to recognize, cherish, appreciate for what they contributed and shared.

Today, Im thanking one of them..one of the "kindered spirits" of my life... you know who you are. :) You are special, great as well as treasured. Thanks for everything.

And in every lifelong journey.. let us cherish the good times and never forget them.... never ignore the bad times(but never dwell on it)... learn from our actions.... and make the rest of our lives wonderful as we want it to be.

it is not good to hate all the roses because you got scratched with one thorn.
to give up on your dreams because one didn't came true to give up on your efforts because one of them failed.
to condemn all your friends because one betrayed you
to not believe in love because something did not work out..
to throw away all chances to be happy because you didn't succeed on the first
attempt.

minsan mahirap tanggapin yung mga bagay na dumarating.
but then sabi nga sa bible (di ko alam yung verse), all things work together for good ba yun. at saka sa ecclesiastes, sabi everything happens for a reason.

agree to this, all things works together for good, may not easily understand or grasp especially kung di maganda sa umpisa pero later on ma-re-realize na may mas maganda palang nakalaan. ika nga if you did not get the things you wanted there is something better will come.

i've been in this kind of situation where i kept on looking for the answer yet never to realized to acknowledge/see the signs that are coming into my way and always jumped into a conclusion.

Wise words but I really wonder if all the misery, illness, violence, hunger and wars all around the world have any purpose…

additional quotes or ideas: "we won't know the difference between sweet and sour, until we get to taste it."

i agree with everything you said. keep the hopes up! everything will fall into place on its own.

*two thumbs up for this entry*

Tama. Everything happens for a reason. It's a sad cliche pero yun tlga ung totoo. Especially kung tungkol sa relationship. Yung magbbreak kau tapos ang sasabihin sau eh "don't worry, everything happens for a reason" chuchu. We never know what's the real reason behind that chuchu pero un na un.


Masarap maging happy! grabe. Haha. La lang! :-P

all our actions are coupled with reactions and we might not see it now. Un na lang isipin natin.
