Life and Love

With the current pace of our daily lives, many people don't seem to find time in looking at the most important things - life and love.

There is a big difference between being alive and living it. Being alive is just serving the purpose of a human being - to exist; while living life is adding spice on that existence. It's best to live everyday like it's your last so you can, by your own little way, discover how to live a fruitful and productive life. We can do this by trying to wear a smile on your face upon waking up in the morning. Say a little prayer for guidance. Be happy.

To love or not to love? (by Shakespeare)...How do I love thee? (by Elizabeth Barrett Browning)... famous lines that we hear from plays and we read from books. Questions that lovers ask themselves, but seemed to find no answer. Although, we often associate this to lovers, we also need to understand that there is an ultimate love that we have to feel, our Creator's love for us and our love for Him. Whatever our religion is, we know that, without His love, we cannot find true happiness that we've been longing for. Without His love, we cannot live fully everyday. Without His love, we're like a child lost in a jungle, full of wild animals and unknown danger.

Make A Stand

Reflect to know your priorities

I remember, my husband and I had talked about this topic over dinner. We agreed that man was created to enjoy God's works, but of course, there's always a limitation since we have to abide by the law of God. People tend to keep themselves busy trying to earn money, nothing wrong with it but we still need to make sure that we are prioritizing those that are really important like God and family. These are the things that can truly make us happy and enjoy life.

There are people who lived to work but there are some who worked to live. There are people who loved to live and some who lived to love. Try to stop for a while and reflect. Know who you are and what your true priorities should be.

      These are great reminders, it is truly great to be alive but means more when one can love to live.
