Love is a Verb : My Birthday Blog ( Part I )

Posted Tuesday, August 14, 2012 by deehan1914

Love is a verb
It ain't a thing
It's not something you hold
It's not something you scream

When you show me love
I don't need your words
Yeah, love ain't a thing
Love is a verb
Love ain't a thing
Love is a verb

Love ain't a crush
It ain't an excuse
No, you can't get through love
On just a pile of 'IOU's'

Love ain't a drug
Despite what you've heard
Yeah, love ain't a thing
Love is a verb
Love ain't a thing
Love is a verb

So you gotta show, show, show me
Show, show, show me
Show, show, show me
That love is a verb

- Love is a Verb , John Mayer

Yes, Love is a verb. Hence, I must show it. This blog is to show my love to those who helped me build the person I am now. I think the journey wasn't about me finding myself. I think it was all about me building the person I want to become. It was never about finding. In finding, it means somethings has been laid there already and you just accept it. In building, you boldly decide over things and create the universe you wanted.

I believe in a life formed by the decisions we made, making and will make. Even God allowed us to have freewill because he never wanted "robots". Hence, the things around us are the things we attracted...they are the things we may not know we already pulled to be rotating around us.

Today, before I will turn a year older, I will try to thank everyone I love. I believe I can never thank them enough but a good try might do the job. 

To my God 

I know there was never a moment in my life that I can boldly say that I am worthy of Your love. Everyday is a wonder of how loving You really are. Everyday is a discovery that love is a verb. You never failed to show it and make me feel very good inside.

To my family

I know I am not the perfect daughter my parents deserved. It's a wonder how perfect I feel when wrapped in my parents' embrace. My parents have been through a lot of appalling events in life and I never wanted to bring them down. I need to face this tempting world and live continually in the values that my parents shared to me over the years. My family is not perfect but who says being imperfect will always mean not being the best?

Thank you Mama , Papa, Dodong, Manong, Wengot , Angelo , Ate Gina, Nanay and Tatay . To my Aunt Elsa and cool uncle Tom. Thanks everyone for showing me that love is a verb.

To our dogs Spy, Kikoy and Bruno. Life will always be fun with these cuddly furry friends of mine.

To my soul-sister

You are God's answer to my prayers. I told you that several times in hopes that you will never feel useless. I can never imagine what I did to deserve you. I will always show you how loved you are. Love is a verb!

To my MSU-CBI friends

Life will always be sweet with you guys! The memories will forever make me feel young, imaginative, cheerful and peaceful. It was never about sheer luck.. it was God ! How wonderful  it is to close my eyes and imagine the joyful and brave hearts we had. We were never deterred by the guns , the threats and the literal darkness just to fulfill our sacred duties. Our love for our duties in the church proves that love is a verb...we must show it. 

To my childhood friends

How could time fly this swift? The joy of feeling the rain in our skin without the inconvenience of checking the clock will always be benign. We ought to remember these happy thoughts . At some point in our life ,these memories might be the best we got.

To my mentors

How can you ever repay the person who has inspired you to reach your dreams ? How can you ever thank someone who assured you that even if life will be tough, at the end of the day, it's still beautiful? Thank you very much Sir Richard ! I really want to be someone as inspiring as you are! Thank you Sir..Thank you very much!

To my GNA family

I thought I'll never survive this kind of job but everyone helped me teach with ease. The best thing about this job is that I love the job itself. The staffs, managers , teachers and students are amazing. It will always be heartwarming when a student will say their heartfelt thanks. The feeling of being able to help others is addictive. It makes me feel useful , worthy and able. Thank you for the happy skype moments!
