Hercules is THE DEFINITION of a gentleman. Her dress strap slips down and HE PUTS IT BACK UP because he’s like “No, she’s a lady, she deserves my respect. Control yourself. Leave, just leave.”

Imagine if all guys/girls had that much respect for people they were attracted to…the world would be a lot better and safer, I can tell you that.

Also have to remember he’s never had a girl actually hit on him before.

#1. Stop spending time with the wrong people. – Life is too short to spend time with people who suck the happiness out of you.  If someone wants you in their life, they’ll make room for you.  You shouldn’t have to fight for a spot.  Never, ever insist yourself to someone who continuously overlooks your worth.  And remember, it’s not the people that stand by your side when you’re at your best, but the ones who stand beside you when you’re at your worst that are your true friends.

#2. Stop running from your problems. – Face them head on.  No, it won’t be easy.  There is no person in the world capable of flawlessly handling every punch thrown at them.  We aren’t supposed to be able to instantly solve problems.  That’s not how we’re made.  In fact, we’re made to get upset, sad, hurt, stumble and fall.  Because that’s the whole purpose of living – to face problems, learn, adapt, and solve them over the course of time.  This is what ultimately molds us into the person we become.


#3. Stop lying to yourself. – You can lie to anyone else in the world, but you can’t lie to yourself.  Our lives improve only when we take chances, and the first and most difficult chance we can take is to be honest with ourselves.

#4. Stop putting your own needs on the back burner. – The most painful thing is losing yourself in the process of loving someone too much, and forgetting that you are special too.  Yes, help others; but help yourself too.  If there was ever a moment to follow your passion and do something that matters to you, that moment is now.

#5. Stop trying to be someone you’re not. – One of the greatest challenges in life is being yourself in a world that’s trying to make you like everyone else.  Someone will always be prettier, someone will always be smarter, someone will always be younger, but they will never be you.  Don’t change so people will like you.  Be yourself and the right people will love the real you.


#6. Stop trying to hold onto the past. – You can’t start the next chapter of your life if you keep re-reading your last one.

#7. Stop being scared to make a mistake. – Doing something and getting it wrong is at least ten times more productive than doing nothing.  Every success has a trail of failures behind it, and every failure is leading towards success.  You end up regretting the things you did NOT do far more than the things you did.


#8. Stop berating yourself for old mistakes. – We may love the wrong person and cry about the wrong things, but no matter how things go wrong, one thing is for sure, mistakes help us find the person and things that are right for us.  We all make mistakes, have struggles, and even regret things in our past.  But you are not your mistakes, you are not your struggles, and you are here NOW with the power to shape your day and your future.  Every single thing that has ever happened in your life is preparing you for a moment that is yet to come.


#9. Stop trying to buy happiness. – Many of the things we desire are expensive.  But the truth is, the things that really satisfy us are totally free – love, laughter and working on our passions.


#10. Stop exclusively looking to others for happiness. – If you’re not happy with who you are on the inside, you won’t be happy in a long-term relationship with anyone else either.  You have to create stability in your own life first before you can share it with someone else.

#11. Stop being idle. – Don’t think too much or you’ll create a problem that wasn’t even there in the first place.  Evaluate situations and take decisive action.  You cannot change what you refuse to confront.  Making progress involves risk.  Period!  You can’t make it to second base with your foot on first.

#12. Stop thinking you’re not ready. – Nobody ever feels 100% ready when an opportunity arises.  Because most great opportunities in life force us to grow beyond our comfort zones, which means we won’t feel totally comfortable at first.

#13. Stop getting involved in relationships for the wrong reasons. – Relationships must be chosen wisely.  It’s better to be alone than to be in bad company.  There’s no need to rush.  If something is meant to be, it will happen – in the right time, with the right person, and for the best reason. Fall in love when you’re ready, not when you’re lonely.

#14. Stop rejecting new relationships just because old ones didn’t work. – In life you’ll realize that there is a purpose for everyone you meet.  Some will test you, some will use you and some will teach you.  But most importantly, some will bring out the best in you.


#15. Stop trying to compete against everyone else. – Don’t worry about what others are doing better than you.  Concentrate on beating your own records every day.  Success is a battle between YOU and YOURSELF only.

#16. Stop being jealous of others. – Jealousy is the art of counting someone else’s blessings instead of your own.  Ask yourself this:  “What’s something I have that everyone wants?”



#17. Stop complaining and feeling sorry for yourself. – Life’s curveballs are thrown for a reason – to shift your path in a direction that is meant for you.  You may not see or understand everything the moment it happens, and it may be tough.  But reflect back on those negative curveballs thrown at you in the past.  You’ll often see that eventually they led you to a better place, person, state of mind, or situation.  So smile!  Let everyone know that today you are a lot stronger than you were yesterday, and you will be.

#18. Stop holding grudges. – Don’t live your life with hate in your heart.  You will end up hurting yourself more than the people you hate.  Forgiveness is not saying, “What you did to me is okay.”  It is saying, “I’m not going to let what you did to me ruin my happiness forever.”  Forgiveness is the answer… let go, find peace, liberate yourself!  And remember, forgiveness is not just for other people, it’s for you too.  If you must, forgive yourself, move on and try to do better next time.


#19. Stop letting others bring you down to their level. – Refuse to lower your standards to accommodate those who refuse to raise theirs.


#20. Stop wasting time explaining yourself to others. – Your friends don’t need it and your enemies won’t believe it anyway.  Just do what you know in your heart is right.

#21. Stop doing the same things over and over without taking a break. – The time to take a deep breath is when you don’t have time for it.  If you keep doing what you’re doing, you’ll keep getting what you’re getting.  Sometimes you need to distance yourself to see things clearly.

#22. Stop overlooking the beauty of small moments. – Enjoy the little things, because one day you may look back and discover they were the big things.  The best portion of your life will be the small, nameless moments you spend smiling with someone who matters to you.

#23. Stop trying to make things perfect. – The real world doesn’t reward perfectionists, it rewards people who get things done.


#24. Stop following the path of least resistance. – Life is not easy, especially when you plan on achieving something worthwhile.  Don’t take the easy way out.  Do something extraordinary.


#25. Stop acting like everything is fine if it isn’t. – It’s okay to fall apart for a little while.  You don’t always have to pretend to be strong, and there is no need to constantly prove that everything is going well.  You shouldn’t be concerned with what other people are thinking either – cry if you need to – it’s healthy to shed your tears.  The sooner you do, the sooner you will be able to smile again.

#26. Stop blaming others for your troubles. – The extent to which you can achieve your dreams depends on the extent to which you take responsibility for your life.  When you blame others for what you’re going through, you deny responsibility – you give others power over that part of your life.

#27. Stop trying to be everything to everyone. – Doing so is impossible, and trying will only burn you out.  But making one person smile CAN change the world.  Maybe not the whole world, but their world.  So narrow your focus.

#28. Stop worrying so much. – Worry will not strip tomorrow of its burdens, it will strip today of its joy.  One way to check if something is worth mulling over is to ask yourself this question: “Will this matter in one year’s time?  Three years?  Five years?”  If not, then it’s not worth worrying about.

#29. Stop focusing on what you don’t want to happen. – Focus on what you do want to happen.  Positive thinking is at the forefront of every great success story.  If you awake every morning with the thought that something wonderful will happen in your life today, and you pay close attention, you’ll often find that you’re right.


#30. Stop being ungrateful. – No matter how good or bad you have it, wake up each day thankful for your life.  Someone somewhere else is desperately fighting for theirs.  Instead of thinking about what you’re missing, try thinking about what you have that everyone else is missing.


This is such a beautiful list, and we all are guilty of some of these. The best thing to do is just remember each day to appreciate and reflect a bit, even if it’s only a few minutes. Share this amazing list by clicking below.

and then that one day comes…

and you just let go of everything.

finally, you are happy.

Date a man who dreams


Date a man who dreams.

Date a man who doesn’t spend his money on drink, or clothes, or video games, but saves what he has to go on adventures and pursue his dreams. He might have problems dealing with everyday things but no-one sees the possibilities life holds like he does. This is a man who…

bumaliktad na ang mundo

oras lang naman makakapagsabi para malaman mo na lahat sila pare-parehas lang
sa una lang naman papormahan, pagentleman, pasweet, pabait, pag nakita na nila ang mali sayo ung prinsesang nakita nila nagiging katulong na dapat sumunod sa bawat sinabi nila.

siguro hindi nila alam kung gano kasakit.
pwede din alam nila
siguro wala sila pake o sayo lang talaga sila wala pake alam.
Kaya mo tiisin ang sakit ng di nila nalalaman pero pag may ginawa ka na di nila gusto siguradong papamuka nila sayo na ang laking problema ang dinulot mo sa buhay nila.
lahat ginagawa mo para mapagaan ang trabaho nila pero ang nakikita lang nila ay kung ano nagawa mong mali.
ikaw gusto nila baguhin ugali mo pero pag sila na susumbatan ka na bakit mo sila binabago.
pag ikaw nakakaistorbo sasabihin insensitive at callous ka pero pag gigisingin ka nila sa gitna ng tulog mo wala lang
kahit alam nila may sakit ka kukulitin ka nila pero pag sila may sakit bawal ka mag salita bawal ka mang gulo bawal ka tumawag dyan ka lang
tumahimik ka lang dyan
wag ka iimik
wag ka gagalaw
wag ka magiisip
wag kang kikibo

siguro kelangan mo magsimula ulit ng bago
dun sa magtuturing sayo na prinsesa ulit
walang bahid ng dumi
walang bahid ng mali
sa susunod na pagkakataon bawal ka magkamali
mananatili kang perpekto
isasaloob mo lahat ng problema at sakit
wala ka ipapakita
kailangan mo maging perpekto
para manatili ang ilusyon
upang manatili ang kapayapaan
para maging masaya

The truth must be concealed

Once it is revealed

The illusion would break down

And reality sets in

Where Do I Write From?

In silence, I hear a voice. I can hear someone speak. At time, the sound is deafening. I look around to see if anyone can hear the same voice I’m hearing and if they can hear the same voice, do they hear it as well as I do? Are they listening? This must be how animals felt. The annoying barking of dogs that kept me awake at night and drove me to throw buckets of cold water in the second floor veranda in order to force them to stop. Speaking is after all different from being understood. Like speaking a language that no one understands - a language that exists in a country long forgotten or a country that had been incinerated by the Germans or the Ice age. Who am I fooling when I pretend to speak the language of the normal? In the same line, who am I fooling when I pretend not to understand the language I have spoken since birth?
I wonder if Sign Languages deliver a louder sound than the Spoken Word or clearer than the Image of Written Letters.

In darkness, I see an image as vivid as when one looks up at the clouds in a fine sunny day. Am I the only one looking up at the sky? And if they are looking up at the sky, are they looking up at the same patch of clouds?

I walked around but all O see is the indifference of a universe that refuses to be moved. Why am I the only one who can hear her voice? Why am I the only one who can see her face? And if I’m the only one who hears her, if I’m the only one who can see her, isn’t it that the responsibility to let her be known fall unto me? To let the world that she exists? That she is here? That she had been speaking to us all this time?

A voice that only I could hear. A voice that has been silenced and ignored. I want to write for her. I want to be able to reach her soul and so I write
From the Heteropic Space Of The Unnoticed.

Who Do I Write For?

What if I was asked the wrong question?
How then would I arrive at the right answer?

For I have ceased to write. I have stopped writing for the deaf, the blind, and the indifferent. Somehow, Questions no longer need to be asked. Somehow, Ideas no longer need to be discussed. Somehow, problems no longer need to be solved. Somehow, life seemed to me… utterly senseless.

It’s been three years or so when I realized that my writing would never come to life. It would never get out of the pages that I doodled with as my professors contemplate on being and nothingness, potentiality and actuality, real and the unreal. In one way or another, the drive had died down. The urge became easier to stop. Thoughts became nothing but what it was.

What happened you may ask? Life did.
The realization that nothing would come out of the purging.
The value of thoughts is only significant to the one who possessed them. I would have loved to write for those sought wisdom or guidance. I would have loved to write for the lonesome, for those in need, for those who knew the value of ideas, the weight of words and the pain of having to acquire feelings.

Yes, I did write. I wrote because the hand can write what the mouth cannot bear to speak or rather what it has no capacity to articulate. As naive as I was, I thought that maybe he, whoever “he” is, can read what I have written and it would let him know where I am, what I’m doing, how I felt all those years of absence and who I came to be. If once, I have failed to change his mind then maybe after reading what I have written he may have a change of heart. 
It never once occurred to me that the black ink would have been tinted in white.

I have shouted in the Himalayas only to find words being echoed back to me. I have crossed back and forth between cities but there is yet something to be seen. I found myself alone. Life went on without me and it will keep on going without hearing what I have to say
Maybe if there was a time, if only just once someone said, 
I’m here
I can hear you
I’ve been listening
I see you
Maybe it may have had a difference

Minsan alam mo naman nagsisinungaling sayo
pero paniniwalaan mo
at pag mag isa ka nalang
uulit-ulitin mo mga sinabi niya sa utak mo

tatanungin mo sa sarili mo bakit ganto bakit ganyan
kung kelan ka nagkaroon ng lakas ng loob magpakatotoo
babaligtad ang mundo

Maalaala mo ung saglit na panahon na naging okay ka
ung panahon na isat kalahating taon mo pinaghirapan marating
mga panahon na hindi mo pinaniniwalaan ang sinasabi ng kahit sino mang tao
mga panahon na ayaw mo magpadala sa salita o sa gawa

tatanungin mo sa sarili mo
bakit ka pumayag?
ano ba ginawa niya o sinabi niya para magbago ang isip mo
ano ba ang ngyari para harapin mo ang kinatatakutan mo
bakit ka ba nagbago?
at bakit siya nagbago noong nagbago ka
tatanungin mo sarili mo
hindi ba iyon ang ginusto nya sayo? na magbago ka, na makuha ka?
o baka dahil nakuha ka na kaya nagbago siya

aalalahanin mo bawat gabi ng pangarap
aalalahanin mo bawat araw ng saya
at pagiisipan mo kung gaano katotoo ang lahat
siguro dapat sa umpisa palang alam mo na
siguro hindi lang mapigilan na maging tanga
na baka pwede ka pa umasa
na itong pagkakataon may pupuntahan na ung pag-asa
kasi sabi niya e
yun. sinabi niya, na parang lie-proof ang bawat salitang lalabas sa kanya
hindi naman condom ang salita para maproteksyonan ka
hindi naman condom ang salita para pagkatiwalaan mo, wala itong trust.

hindi mo alam kung bakit ganon ka bilis
hindi mo alam kung saan ka mismo nagkamali
dati nagkakamali ka dahil gusto mo umalis
pero ngayon mukang nagkamali ka dahil gusto mo manatili
nakakabaliw naman ito, hindi mo alam kung saan ka lulugar, ano iisipin, ano paniniwalaan. mukang wala ng next time sayo para sa kanya o kahit kanino, sigurado ka naman, kung may next time sa ibang tao, ganto din mangyayari. pag nahulog ka na, iiwan ka ng ganon. ang daya naman.

ano bang ginawa mong napakasama para mangyari sayo ang lahat ng to.
