I’m wearing: ny&co intimates top, ivory with leather detail knit skirt, renegade folk heels.

Why the title despite the ivory and beige ensemble? Well, try squinting to see the color of my nails. Better yet, here…

At times, it’s the smallest detail that stands out. And that’s true not only in outfits, mind you. As they say, the little things are those that count. They make the whole all the more interesting.

C’ est la vie…

After the KL trip, I decided to stay in Cebu for a couple of nights to spend some time with Ella and to catch up with Eman, CJ, and friends.

The night before I left for Bacolod, we had dinner at our favorite hang out, Kaona Grill near JY Mall in Lahug.

don’t judge

I fell from grace the moment I realized that the world is not exactly kind nor noble even for a little girl, who’s craving for understanding people and the works of life resulted to rebellion. I could only remember fleeting moments of guileless attitude. I was more reserved than outspoken- afraid to be wrong, and at the same time afraid to be right. I’ve found ways to shield myself from eventual disappointments lest I become too puppy-eyed and hopeful only to be stabbed and shattered over and over.

I had been incessantly hoping for salvation, for someone to hold my hand and show me the brighter, lighter side of life.  A bittersweet ideal that someone would let himself fall with me, to change the course of my flight save me from drowning. I’d gladly let myself be maneuvered, knowing and trusting that he’s willing to share himself with me wholly, and put me back on track. I would no longer be me, a sole entity, but us. And he, willing to let me in his life and be a part of him. I wanted a fearless man, yet tender and open-minded. Unpretentious and truthful. Pathetic, I know. And I was too obsessed with the total idea of “bliss.” I’ve placed my morals and principles to the test. Self-recriminations never helped, it only made me worse, unforgiving. In search of my so-called bliss, I became a menace to people who cared for me, people I owed my life to.

Maybe I’m selfish, maybe I think too much- mostly about the less important things to survive in this world. I have been hurt, especially by people I expected to listen and understand. I have hurt people I never intended to, no matter how much I tried not to. One simply cannot expect too much from anyone. One cannot set himself to be the standard figure of humanity, no matter how he tries to perfect himself because people are individuals. Each person is special and priceless.

I may not be entirely proud of the things I have done, I may be forever haunted by my mistakes but I take full responsibility for my actions and decisions. The path I chose was not a simple one but it taught me a lot. At least when I die, I’d know I’ve lived my life.
