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.  

CHERISH IT!







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 it....love 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"...so 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 :)

  5. We have so many cherished moments to be remembered, there are some sad memories too- but as long as we're learning from those experience,we shouldn't regret any single moment.

    How are you Leony?

JOURNEYING WITH YOU

My heart tells me there's something wrong. It seems you're going through a journey with nothing but heartaches beside you. You don't have to say or utter anything for me to know and realize the anguish. I care too much not to notice...

Over the years, I have discovered that Love's journey is not easy. At first It gives us hope. It gives us a feeling of the so called "heaven". We feel that butterflies are flying inside our stomach. Maybe sounds funny and corny, but we don't mind all those corny things they said. What matters to us is the sweet feelings of being in love. We are in a high spirit of Love. But, have we forgot that we are on a journey? Each of us from time to time experiences crises from different life changing events and transitions, all unpredictable moments arriving and intruding into our well groomed relationship, we didn't ask for this interference and we wonder why it has arrived bringing with it havoc and confusion.

Love's journey is not easy, in fact, it often is hard. No matter what the source, each pain has a common bond, a threshold, a holy summons inviting us to cross a threshold involving both a leaving behind and a stepping forward.

Struggling day to day with the pain is an agonizing task. Don't be too hard on yourself. I am near if you need a lift of heart, a guiding hand, and someone who will be there with you to welcome the light of a new day. Just go on with your journey, because you are not alone. If the pain is too much for you, then.... GIVE ME YOUR WOUNDED HEART.
