Leave or Live the Moment

"Take a plunge in the ocean of sadness,  for you to understand happiness and appreciate life moment by moment..." ~Leony~

Life is said to be a journey..
We have to live it moment by moment.  


Cherished moments are those times that bring a smile to our face or tears in our eyes.
They are special and remarkable.
They are treasures.

We treasure every moment because they recall the memory of our loved ones - family and friends who'd been part of us and made our journey worthwhile. 

They were part of the lessons we learned day by day and each piece of it has a special room in our precious heart.

They are not meant to be concealed or buried.

They are to be relived, to be experienced again and again..
  .."for they are influencial source of strength, guidance, inspiration, and hope as we journey on" (Fr. Jerry Orbus).

Normally, we only tend to reminisce the happy moments, setting aside  those sad ones., and most likely many of us try to erase those that refreshes the pain...

Only few realizes that everything happens for a reason... and there is hope beyond the horizon.

"I've been too long in the wind, 
too long in the rain.."

This  line from a song "Loving Arms" by Dixies has got my attention while I was  clicking on you tube  during my lonesome moment.  

There was a flashback of the unforgettable...
I saw myself in the ocean of sadness remembering the person behind that song..

While listening to it, I become too emotional for it reminds me how life has treated me 'till this very day. It was my lonesome moment, and an outburst of emotion has got me almost fainted. 

We have our own share of unforgettable moments and we have our different ways of dealing with it. 

Either we keep it or share it, the bottom line is ...
those moments are meant to be cherished.

I thank God that during those moments of sadness,

when I was so down and tired in my journey,
He has given me a helping hand,
in a form of a stranger... a friend.

A friend who tries to listen instead of judging.

A stranger, whom I considered my light in shining armour.
It was a moment, a treasured moment... with a treasured friend.

Getting back to the song...

It was a gentle reminder for me to go back to my real self, to my identity and my mission in this life. 

With divine providence, make a choice.
Either you gonna leave or live the moment.
Leave those bad moments behind. They were there as part of your journey.
Live the good ones and cherish them.
They are there to give colors and guidance as you journey on.


  1. That's your spirit ...we all love joy and happiness but how we could forget pain and sadness is also the part of life.....without their existent " JOY n HAPPINESS" wouldn't be "JOY n HAPPINESS" all of them are treasured moments...and we should move on accepting this facts.

    1. You said it well. It is the fact about life and love. Life's journey is not easy, in fact, it often is hard. The road we take is too rough, that in most cases, we get stumble.. and it is from being stumble that we learn to stand up of our own and continue to journey on! Thank you so much Milan, I wish you goodness and wellness :)

Life is Not Always What We Think It Is

What are you afraid of?
Alone in the dark?
Getting poor?

Do you spend a good deal of time worrying about your status in life, wishing you could swap places with those rich and famous, who you think are living an easy and happy life? Does the phrase “I wish I were that person” has ever cross to your mind?

There are million people in this world. This million people have billion dreams and wishes. Dreams of having a good life with endless happiness.
A kind of happiness everyone wishes to have yet scared to take hard test because what they want is easy drive in the highways.

The moment you open your eyes and see the sunrise, it is the beginning moment of your journey for the day. You've seen hope, all you gonna do is move, otherwise the rising sun is gonna kick your butt. You have to get up -for the heck of just being alive and being tied up into complicated stuff- you still have to get up and it is a must.

That's how it is, we can't complain life.

"There are scenes hidden in an open street until clicked."  -Leone Moonrose-

Seeing the invisible. Notice the unnoticed.

Find the beauty through reality of the so-called natural in a concrete jungle... The street.

Observe everything on its environment. What do you see?
Aren't you seeing the naked truth in every lie? 
Aren't you seeing the naked street flashed before the lens of your naked eyes?

"It is not just about who are you seeing, it is all about what are you seeing,.. and WHY."

One fine morning, with a bunch of self confidence in my pocket, a bag of positive insights and a great desire to capture interesting subjects, I went out, headed towards the concrete jungle.

I was walking along the so-called busy street, with my DSLR camera in my hand, ready to click anything that captures my attention. The usual scenario of people going toand fro from their homes to respective business, works, schools or malls wearing different faces, flaunted before my eyes. 

It's a ty…

When our eyes met, there was magic

When was the first time we fall in love? How was the feeling?

      Going back when we first fall in love, on that very unforgettable date, the whole world seems to fade into the background.

      My lover is my no.1, the "center stage" as we call it.  I am yearning of his presence. I just love him so much that I dare not see anyone else. I always look forward of his message. A single "hi" is enough to keep me going the whole day. It made me complete. It made me wear a genuine smile to everyone I met. I didn't mind others opinion about  him. I didn't mind the world. I didn't mind if I was dreaming. All I mind was the sweet feeling of giving love and being loved.
      For sure you guys knew too about this feeling! You knew well how colorful the world of a person in love is. Our  heart can do wonders. We can make songs out from that feeling.  We can even make poems that help us convey the message from our heart. Being in love allows us to see the beauty …
