30 September, 2013


I want to end September 2013 on a very positive note. I've been feeling very much at peace and happier these past months and I would like to spread these good vibes to whoever reads this post.Ü If you are going through something, just hang in there. If you are happy, be a blessing to others and share that happiness. You'd be surprised at what magic it can do.

John Lloyd Cruz aka JLC is one of the best actors of this generation. Like it or not, there’s just a handful of 'em "May K" these days. JLC has films that you can watch over and over and over again and never get tired of them — my current JLC movie night fixation is It Takes a Man and a Woman. I get this IK ( internal kilig ) each time there's a CU of John Lloyd. I cried in the scene where they showed a video clip of Miggy Montenegro's dad, Luis Montenegro played by Dante Rivero, was giving a speech. It's one of the best lines in a Filipino film
"I realized what I want my son to become. I just want him to be a good man. Be good in the face of failure.
Sometimes being the best means being the least. Be good even after you made a mistake.
Sometimes being good just boils down to being able to say sorry. Sometimes being good is loving the people who hurt you
and making the most difficult choices that may hurt the people you love.
Madalas sa kagustuhan nating maging pinaka-magaling, nakakalimutan natin maging mabuti.
We lose sight of the fact that every day is a struggle to just be better.
Being good is what kept my family together. Being good is what built and sustained this company.
Being good is what will move it forward for the future of our children and our children's children.
It’s not the easiest, but that is the best legacy a person can leave behind - to always live in goodness and just be a good man."

In school, we were taught that all individuals are born naturally good ... maybe so. Realistically speaking, it may be challenging for some to be good all the time. We live in a very competitive world. Sometimes, things can get ugly and uglier but at the end of day it matters how we justly deal and properly overcome whatever crap life throws at us + despite how others behave evilly towards us. I am a strong believer that goodness is contagious. Goodness radiates and returns goodness.

2 Timothy 1:7
For God has not given us a spirit of timidity, but of power and love and discipline.

When things turn sh*tty, remember that you can always silence and shut out that negative inner voice. After the awful series of life events that happened to me in 2012, I’ve come to accept that nothing in this world is ever permanent. It’s up to me, to us to live our lives happily. We are given tomorrows and more tomorrows to see less of what the world failed to give us. We are blessed with another day to love, work, and most of all, to live to become better versions of ourselves.
☮..Peace + ❥_Love + Good Vibes. RUSS.
