The Truth About Forgiveness

The truth about forgiveness is that if you forgive someone, it doesn’t mean the following:

1. that they are sorry.
2. that they won’t do it again.
3. that they’ll be better than before.

The thing is that we have to live with that. We can’t control everyone and definitely can’t dictate others what to do cause they have their own lives to live and own decisions to make.

We forgive because it’s the right thing to do. We forgive to make peace with somebody and find peace with ourselves. We forgive so that we could let go and move on. If we hold grudges then we will always be stuck on the same page.

Take Chances Now

I have a chance to be great and I have the chance now. – Marco Mendoza, Suits 2

I started watching Suits again just to catch up with the latest season. I really don’t know what season I was watching  when I stopped. So what I did is watch it all over again — oh please, I swear I didn’t get bored at all. Gabriel Macht is so awesome and I’d be willing to marry him any time of the day. Lol. I’m stopping my “kilig” moments now.

So then I encountered the line above by a character named Marco Mendoza. I won’t go much further with his story but the line really struck me. He’s right.

We always wait for our chance and be patient that there is a time for our dreams or goals for that matter. But isn’t that everyday is a chance — a chance to be great, to be better than yesterday, to right mistakes, to forgive, to even make a mistake for the first time. It is always a chance to do something about something.

It’s not always up to us, the decisions? Yes, but what do we do when we wait? We sit in a chair and wait for an interesting news to hear? NO. We do our best. We do the best of what we can do and we maximize every bit of it. TOMORROW CAN NOT ALWAYS BE CERTAIN. Why not take a chance today?

Why Are They Confusing Us?

7 Horrible Foods You Should Not Allow Near Your Mouth: http://www.mindbodygreen.com/0-10359/7-horrible-foods-you-should-not-allow-near-your-mouth.html

On a second thought, why would they let it be sold in groceries and restaurants? Why do they keep on fooling people around with this stuff?

Here in the Philippines, I’ve noticed that they promote what is cheaper. Let’s say for example, sachets. They make more sachets than regular shampoo bottles. On the side of the food, they’re on to seasoning and all-in-one mixes for dishes. We have great Pinoy dishes like kare-kare, sinigang, bicol express but they’re promoting it saying that all we need to do is buy the meat and combine it with the mix – no need to buy all the ingredients. Seriously, what’s in that? How did they make it as if it is what it is but it’s all flavorings?

There’s another one! Instant noodles and all its flavors! Ugh. I’m so freakin’ when I see their commercials. They’re telling people that it has vitamin A, B, C and so on and so fort. They even tell you it’s made from all natural ingredients. Yeah right, then why can’t we just eat the natural ones?

Are they telling us to purchase and eat their products (assuming and telling us it’s natural and healthy which it is really isn’t) and expect us to believe it’s good for us? Why do people on the Food Nutrition Authorities approve such products if they know they aren’t what they say they are? Then articles like this would show up and give us a wake up call every other time. What happens in between those times?
