Love & Marriage,

What Makes Me Whip It?

Every time I see couples walking together side-by-side, I always wonder what kind of love story do they have. Regardless of age, race, status in life, whether or not they are talking to each other, or if they are holding each other’s hand, leads me to a couple of questions: Is their story worth telling the world about? Is it the same as the ones we see from movies or read in books with happy endings?

I’ve rested a bit from blogging for almost two weeks, perhaps you can call it blogger’s block. As I am trying to recover from it, I needed to talk myself out from the busyness of attending events, writing reviews and features and adverts. I resorted into doing something that I don’t normally usually do, something that is far different from what I do almost everyday.



I tried watching a couple of Korean drama shows to know and understand why people are so into it. A show called, The Heirs, stirred my curiosity and my thinking, and these thoughts are inspired by it.

You are probably familiar with this since it started airing on ABS-CBN two Mondays ago.


The trailer’s catchy so I tried watching one of its replay episodes. It is probably THAT nice since I found myself searching where I could watch it online. And so, I found it and realized that is has 20 episodes, one hour long each. Lo and behold, I was able to finish the drama series just in 2 installments. It’s been 10 years since I fell in love with Rain and Song Hye Kyo’s Full House.

I won’t do a review here as to why you should watch it; rather, I start by thanking the show for lifting the roadblock in my blogging journey. As I go and reflect as to also what I’ve said when I appeared in a talk show last June 4th aired on Rappler on how I am able to whip the ups and downs of loving a military man and making a military home, leads me as to why and how I am able to survive. How in the world I am whipping it?


Cliche. No wonder it is called the greatest of all, even beating hope and faith from the list of virtues. Love has made me stay. Love has given me courage. Love tells me to keep going. Love teaches me to hope. Love challenges me to be faithful. This thing called love will make you cross oceans.

My marriage is not perfect. There are days that you want to fall or kneel down. But you know what? Today I realized that it really doesn’t matter how many times you fall or kneel down along the way. What matters is you go through each doors and pass through hurdles together and move forward.

Now I am seeing truth coming out from the famous adage, Better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.” Loving is that one great feeling and experience that I am thankful that I have experienced in this lifetime — no matter what the ending will be like.

I don’t know what’s your love story like, but this I say: Love all you can. We get to live only once.

I miss doing posts like this. I should do this more often, don’t you think?
