The Race is On



Opening up my fb page, I saw this pic of cutie and adorable puppies at my homepage (Thanks to Edwin Antonio for posting, hope you don’t mind me using your pic here)

Simply adorable! 

The innocent little doggies got my attention. You might ask: “What’s new in this kind of pic that arouses viewer's interest ? It is but ordinary, simple and common pic on the net with good caption!”  hmm well, could it be from the idea that this pic was taken live by a great photographer? bah,    why not?!! but deep within I know there is something more than that.

I took  another glance, can’t help but smile at the little innocent puppies , and finally, my eyes got stuck on the caption itself.  Right there and then, I understand the magic it brings!

Yes, it’s magic! The picture and the caption brings magic.
The scenario is a reflection of how innocent people are in the beginning. We live life in accordance with our simple desires. We are like innocent puppies, running with our everyday errands, playing and enjoying what life has given us, not quite familiar that we are on a race with our friends, buddies, and family, dealing relationships or affairs, works, hobbies, etc.  It’s like “do what you love, and love what you do". It creates a moment that brings smile to our face and a vibration to our heart each time we experience or even remember it.  

With much enjoyment, we almost forget about the journey.  We almost forget that life is a RACE, that it's quite a game. We valued much about life, we give importance on our needs, not knowing that everything we do and dreamt of.. is just part of the game.  We are not quite aware that the people we mingle everyday plays each own part to win this game called “Life”. For doggies, they race towards getting the bone... for us, we race towards the mountain peak, where the treasure called "life" is hidden. The search is on, the prospects are hopeful. Every  life's journey is part of the game. We are all players, creating our own rules in reaching the top. 

The race is on... run towards the goal. Use all the necessary techniques to win.

and the last third with your heart."

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.
