Entry: Gifts. Thursday, February 11, 2010

In a way, this break I am taking is good despite the opposite feelings I get from the lords. I don't plan to be in this moment for too long. But for the past two days, I was approached by students who were doing their part to help different NGO bodies. Their objective is to get as many people to donate as much money to help out the unfortunates and I've decided to asked for the address for the people they represent.

It has been months since I've been planning to do charity work. For some odd reason, I kept postponing or never got around to do it.

NOW that I am free, I want to go and help in every way possible. A soul is as rich as the things one do that does not evolve around oneself. Who knows, we may learn more about life than they do from us and that's what is exciting. God make people from all walks of life come into your world and make a mark on you - good or bad and it is up to us how we want to perceive it.

The least they can do is make you more humble about who you are and I think a lot of us need some dose of that, including me. Nothing beats from giving back and putting a smile on those beautiful faces. Something I hope to capture through the lense as well if I am given the opportunity.

This has been one of my objective in life and it won't just end with one visit. Who knows maybe I'll fall in love and never turn back. There might be times when their actions could freak me out but then again even the sane people out there freak me out sometimes. I could learn the way they see life and maybe adopt it as part of mine too.

Soon. :)

There is probably a good reason why I have this insatiable feeling about helping out. I think it has a lot to do with how God has given me so much through other people by being there for me. And I don't feel good just taking it from them and Him. I want to share this feeling, this feeling of loved, appreciative, trustworthy, safe and happiness. Other people who are not as fortunate should also get these feelings and I hope to be able to reach out for them.

Hey Michael Buble's Haven't Met You Yet is playing :) Always put a smile on my face.
