I try not to think about us growing old together, mostly because I try not to think about growing old at all. Both things — the years passing, the years together — are too enormous to contemplate. But one morning, I gave in. You were asleep, and I imagined you older and older. Your hair graying, your skin folded and creased, your breath catching. And I found myself thinking: If this continues, if this goes on, then when I die, your memories of me wil be my greatest accomplishment. Your memories wil be my most lasting impression.
There are winds of destiny that blow when we least expect them. Sometimes they gust with the fury of a hurricane, sometimes they barely fan one’s cheek. But the winds cannot be denied, bringing as they often do a future that is impossible to ignore.
Change is constant. I do not know what the future holds for me. But there is one thing I am very certain about, everything happens for a reason by God’s will and I shall not fear. I am a grown up person now. I must not be dependent anymore. I must be strong enough to accept whatever challenges are there ahead of me.
God holds tomorrow, so it is exciting. Even when I have hard things happen, He loves me so big, so much. I come through it and I grow from it, because He has got me.
papatrazzi asked: I'm so in love with your blog. Makaproud kaayo nga kapwa Cebuana ang ga run :') Keep inspiring Ate Venesse! <3
Such a sweet girl! I love your blog more. Anyways, thank you. You really made me happy :)
This girl is not a playwright but she loves to write. She locked herself in the cellar while listening in the sound of a music. Some people called it taking shelter, but she called it sweet vengeance. She’s blown away. She writes her thoughts in a deeper voice. She spends her days living in her head until she finally pulls herself together to take out the pen and write. She’s too soak up into the notebook to even surface to the world. She’s got a lot more things to say but she’s timid and unpredictable. She won’t be the best but she’s catching everything and she won’t spit it!
Nothing as easy as it looks. After everything, I still believe this world is a beautiful place!
“How swift have flown . To me thy girlish times. A woman grown beneath, my heedless eyes!”
I just turned 21 years old yesterday! A one year older, a year better and a year grown up young woman. I’m so excited for what this year brings. 20 was a great age to be and I feel as if I learnt a lot about myself emotionally, spiritually and mentally. I also think I’ve achieved quite a bit as well. I may not be on par with the whole “growing up” thing, but I can gladly say that I’m slowly getting to where I’m supposed to be.
21 years old, feels like the beginning of something new! Hopefully something good.

It’s Venesse sweetie, not Vanessa! hehe and thank you so much :)
Yesterday, love was just words to say! Shades of blue, love keeps dancing through my mind. Happiness on the 2nd of May, all because of you.
Spending all my time, I need a few more seconds in my day, every minutes running away, from when I wake up to when I lay down but the clock ain’t long enough because being with you, makes me feel brand new.
In the middle of the night, you give me butterflies. You make me feel, me feel like I can. You got my head in the clouds and I don’t wanna come down. Your eyes, your smile, the way you make me feel inside.
My heart goes pitter pat! I was tongue-tied because I’m feeling all these butterflies. You just made me feel complete. Thank you, thank you for the wonderful 24/7 a lifetime! ♥
