Just wanted to acknowledge all the things i’m thankful for, such as my family for always being there for me, my friends for making my life crazy, and everyone and everything else i’m overblessed with. Some people might say “why are you posting it up on the interenet rather then telling them?” well you know what, I did so HAH! aha. But yeah, A lot of people have been sayin “why are people saying their grateful today when they should be everyday.” First of all, it’s a day of giving thanks. Of course we’re all going to be thankful, today’s just a day to acknowledge it. Besides, there’s pretty much a day for everything, and some people forget about the things their grateful for, so it’s nice to remember those things. And isn’t the main point of a holiday is to celebrate what’s important to us? But yeah, that’s just a little pet peeve that’s been on my mind. Don’t just count your blessings, acknowledge them.
Yes, i love Pacquiao, and of course i will always have Pinoy Pride, but honestly it just irks me for when people get too cocky with things. It’s a contradicting feeling when it comes to a Paquiao fight for me cause of course i’m gonna root for him for how strong he’s become, not just cause he’s Filipino, and so am I, cause that’s sorta racist. Rooting for something cause of favoritism and/or being bias isn’t right cause there’s no true sportsmanship to that. Anyways, the fight was alright, nothing too bad, nothing that great, it was just a fight, yennoe? Paquiao will always be an awesome fighter, and even if he loses, he’ll always have a great history. I’m glad he won and i’m happy for him, that’s pretty much all there is to it. Don’t take everything so seriously, even if it is “representing” your culture or whatever, just stay humble and don’t get carried away before you lose it.
I’m usually not the person to plan out my wishes, nor wait for 11:11. I just like to do it when it comes up spontaneously. Like this morning, for some reason i woke up at exactly 11:11am (slept in, aha), figured why not wish, so i did. Just earlier i randomly looked at my clock and it was 11:10 but just made a wish for the hell of it. Now that i think about it, i wouldn’t consider my wishes as wishes, cause a wish is pretty much a hope, since you hope for something to happen or occur. Well that wish usually isn’t gonna come true unless you do something about it. Hoping can be an action, actions cause a reaction, a reaction can lead to a reward, that reward is the gift, the gift from a wish, a wish you hoped for to happen.
One thing i’ve noticed in general is that you really can’t please everyone. People, usually say “if you don’t like it, get out” meaning not only would they disregard the situation, but they’d just go off and do their own thing which isn’t so bad (depending on the situation), but sometimes that leads to sub-groups to controversy to arguments to fights, etc. Instead it should be “If you don’t like it, Deal with it.” Meaning if you don’t like it, oh well, but at least stay to help fix the situation if it’s corrupt, or instead of secluding yourself from everyone else. Main point is, you can’t please everyone because everyone has a different opinion. If they don’t like it, oh well, just don’t make a big deal about it. Besides, if you’re doing something that not everyone likes about you, it shouldn’t matter because first of all it’s your life, do what you wanna do. People can support you, give you advice, and input ideas, but in the long run it’s your decision. Secondly, if you do something to please yourself, it shouldn’t matter if someone hates it, cause as long as you’re happy then why have others bring you down by their negative opinions? it’s their opinion, not yours. love what you love, do what you do, and live your life, not others.
