The Metamorphosis of Love

SAM_9567

Life is not a series of chances but a series of choices.

A heart usually portrays the essence of love, of Romanticism, of people’s involvement in a relationship that demands commitment, trust, and loyalty; but a heart might mean a different thing that tries to incorporate a wider and deeper understanding of how love actually exists in a person’s life- where happiness stays and grows from within. However, the butterflies signify metamorphosis- an agent of change that persists to survive in this world.

Just because you want it, doesn’t mean you can get it. Destiny is not carved in stone because it is something you have to create on your own. Beyond the freedom set upon the spark of divinity that’s given from the very start, you get a life… full of uncertainties, doubts, and risks. You endure a battle and insist to win for you think of the importance of the things you love is what truly matters. But, is it really worth the fight? Do you deserve to fall in love that depends from the intensity of the presence of others? Does reality have to seem so vague that you associate real joy from the attachment you get used to? Is it then fair to blame circumstances when you lose yourself while finding the significance outside of it?

Perfection is imaginable yet it is not possible. It cannot be achieved. It is so unfair to expect something that goes too high enough to disrupt your view of reality. You accept the love you think you deserve that you eventually fail to realize that what you’ve been seeking for the whole time is already in front of you waiting to be held on for so long. You miss the chances that are reserved for you while chasing for the ones you desperately hope for. You end up undecided, left out unfulfilled. Is that what is considered as happiness? Of course not. You commit mistakes just like anyone else. The bottom line is, it might be too late to catch up with failures. You learn to let go.

What you believe keeps you going, isn’t it? What you believe is what triggers you to remain intact with your goals in life. You often accompany it with the thought of being extremely in love with something else. So when it is gone, the happiness fades away. That is what happens in a heart that is filled with butterflies. There are things, there are people… that will come and leave. Some will stay and others are meant to go away. Permanence is rare. Definitely, there are things that are bound to visit you temporarily. There will be a moment in your life when your actions are transformed into regrets. It makes you unsatisfied. Will things ever be put in their proper places? Yes. You just have to explore a great sense of being alive and discover that happiness is not all about romantic love, or gifts, or committing to someone, or keeping a promise- but about the innovation and development you attain while enduring the pain you receive and being passionate about your principles no matter what, each day.

Happiness is a choice yet so difficult to stand by it. Love freely. Who cares to give it back?

Tough day. Isn’t it?

Those are the first words that I was able to tweet as I got home today.

It’s really cold here in Baguio yet I don’t want to let myself get cold, too. You know what I mean. I want to keep the fire burning. Well if you still didn’t get it… here’s a question: Have you ever lived a day of perfection? I’m sure that none of you will answer yes; unless you’ve gotten some optimism at its finest when nothing seems to be going wrong. Technically, we can never attain perfection. We can only make the best out of the things that we have- for a greater purpose.

As I recall, some of my blog posts included some of the activities I really enjoyed doing these past few months such as: helping random people, trying to be awesome (not the ‘people-pleaser’ type though), and joining marathon for a cause. Today, I’ve got a very simple thing to show you.

A friend, who is a member of an organization, has invited me to come to their place. I didn’t hesitate because I was thinking that whatever happens, I would still eat lunch and I think it’s better to eat while I help other people in small ways. I’m not flaunting it. I just want to keep some stuffs that I can remember as time passes by. I know to myself that I’ve done this… so the next time I’ve seen another chance of doing amazing things, I can tell myself: It’ good enough. I can do better than this!

My day is full of brisk walking, planning on the things I must be doing, talking to people, making decisions, brainstorming, and a lot more. I can’t even explain how I am feeling right now perhaps I believe that every day is a stepping stone for an individual into becoming a better person.

Tough day. Isn’t it? You must be tougher: Note to Self.
