Writing.. de-boning...?

Here's my very first blog post written on October 18, 2006...

My friend Len insisted that I blog! (she is my best buddy in Tambuli Toastmasters Club!) so here I am (follower ha?) but she’s right.. she led me to remember what I am most passionate about… writing. Hey, reading too! hehe

I am reminded of the Australian crocodile hunter Steve Irwin who lived his passion and probably died happy.  As I was prompted to read more of Arnel Arce’s life, when he wrote “I change the world, I teach, I love..” May they rest in peace.

I admire them. It kind of always prompts me to face me and see me. Kind of Check and Balance my reality… kind of like the statement written by a lady named Rosemarie in her blog “Sliding Doors” (her blogs were introduced by Len, I actually do not know her yet but she writes really well!) she wrote “Again, the question is, where would I be if I made a different decision? What if there’s an alternative life that exists, one that followed a path not taken. What would it be like? ..

Path chosen and taken and not she says.. Leading me to ask “What about me? Have I chosen the wrong path? Or Am I just envious, jealous of where they are?.. vis a vis, comparing where I am?..

I am thinking of writing about Happy thoughts but my mind seems to lead me to this direction. Where am I .. going to?.. What is my purpose? I probably know the answer but I am still being fooled by my reality.. and what I still want achieved.. Because from deep within there’s a lot more.. A lot more that I want seen, a lot more I want heard, touched, felt, hugged, a lot more done in my reality..

I am in the plateau once more.. of wanting to be more.. do more.. Yup, I am one of those who don’t want to be stuck! Who seems to be always seeking.., yearning.. whose soul does not want to rest yet.. who always wants change!

My husband would always tell me to focus, to go to one direction, to stick to it.. thus the public school! Hehe.. in a way I seem to have felt like there’s a missing piece here.. like I have unfinished business here that I want finished! So I preceded. In other words!.. Now I am here and my soul seems to let out again! (History.. worked in 3 set-ups (catholic school, ayala group, Japanese company) good catch: left with positive recognition! Haha.. worked for 2-3 years max per company!!! – how bad is that?)

The case.. Contentment.. human nature I guess or is it just me? And my indecisiveness? Haha.. My husband is correct.. Point taken.. We are at different tier.. and I thank God for his leading, but it will no longer be me if I pacify, stay put, dawdle, slack..Oh no, no, no.. not me anymore.. And he knows that.. so I get more rants haha until he gives up and accept.. (humane ha?)

Gosh! I love writing hehe.. I love the process of unfolding, unraveling, cocooning, de-boning haha as I put the exact words in my piece.. Kind of like a puzzle.. Almost there.. But not quite..  yet!…

It's been more than 6 years... and until now, I still love doing it!:)

What about you? What do you love most doing? 

Let's keep our passions alive!

  1. I never thought that I could be a blogger as well :-) back in high school love to send letters to penpals and never thought that I could use those writing lessons to blogging :-)

  2. people find contentment if they live with their passion in life .

  3. Writing is also my first love and I've written my first one sometime in 2004 in friendster on why I love to write and a writer is indeed reborn. I'm also glad to know your rebirth.

  4. Writing gives me a different kind of high and I love doing it especially minus the pressure.

  5. Writing is relating what you've inside you whether by experience, by research or by what you've thought of as prompted by your imagination or hunch for that matter. And you've doing this for 6 years, that's a long writing experience. Me, I started writing since I was studying in college sometime in 1972 and had a formal media exposure in our local newspaper in 1991. That could be 30 years or 21 years so to speak.

  6. Just like Jessica and many others I never taught that I could also be a blogger. Now, I enjoyed doing it and I am already in my 4th year. Namaste :)

  7. I love to write and I do better in pen than talk on the spur of the moment. That's one of my weakness. But I have my own style in writing. It's my outlet every time I'm down and have worries in my head. This is one passion that makes me ME.

  8. why do i get this feeling that we share the same passion... hahaha... i guess, when you love something, it just comes out naturally. Yahweh bless.
