Sometimes people come into your life and you know right away that they were meant to be there, to serve some sort of purpose, teach you a lesson, or to help you figure out who you are or who you want to become.

You never know who these people may be, your neighbor, your coworker, a long lost friend, or a complete stranger. When you lock eyes with them, you know at that very moment they will affect your life in some profound way.Sometimes things happen to you that may seem horrible, painful, and unfair at first, but in reflection you find that without overcoming those obstacles you would have never realized your potential, strength, willpower, or heart.

Everything happens for a reason. Nothing happens by chance or by means of good luck.

Illness, injury, love, lost moments of true greatness, and sheer stupidity all occur to test the limits of your soul. Without these small tests, whatever they may be, life would be like a smoothly paved,straight, flat road to nowhere. It would be safe and comfortable, but dull and utterly pointless.
The people you meet who affect your life, and the success and downfalls you experience, help to create who you are and who you become.Even the bad experiences can be learned from. In fact, they are probably the most poignant and important ones.

If someone hurts you, betrays you, or breaks your heart, forgive them, for they have helped you learn about trust and the importance of being cautious when you open your heart. If someone loves you, love them back unconditionally, not only because they love you, but because in a way, they are teaching you to love and how to open your heart and eyes to things.

Make every day count. Appreciate every moment and take from those moments everything that you possibly can for you may never be able to experience it again. Talk to people that you have never talked to before, and actually listen.

Let yourself fall in love, break free, and set your sights high. Hold your head up because you have every right to. Tell yourself you are a great individual and believe in yourself, for if you don’t believe in yourself, it will be hard for others to believe in you.

You can make of your life anything you wish. Create your own life and then go out and live it with absolutely no regrets.

Most importantly if you Love someone tell him or her, for you never know what tomorrow may have in store.

Learn a lesson in life each day that you live.

That’s the story of Life.

Am Brain Anuerysm Survivor!  

I’M A SURVIVOR! And I thank God for my second life, for waking me up after a deep sleep. That was after my near death experience last year February 19, 2011. A stroke due to hypertension called aneurysm. A raptured vein on the left side of my brain, and an operations was done to save my life, the procedure they call surgical clipping. I was really very lucky. God held me the during the long hours surgery, held my hands and woke me up after 7 hours. I opened my eyes and the doctor called me as a miracle patient. That was the best blessing, best love of God.

It was a case of a severe headache, the worst pain I ever had, it was like a bolt of lighting. That was Feb. 18 while having lunch with my co-workers. I find brain aneurysms almost unique. Can’t understand the dramatical event and I’ve been asking a lot of whys and hows. There are a  lot of curiosity on what’s been happening in life. But I am really thankful to many surprises and blessings. I have recuperated. I never loss memory and physical strength. For one year, I have rest and  I’m alive and kicking!
I am one of the lucky few that survived a ruptured brain aneurysm. I survived a ruptured brain aneurysm on February 19, 2011. Brain aneurysm is really a tough fight with life, a unique battle and I won.

After three days of the surgery, everything went well in my new life. I’m very thankful and happy to see many people around me, staying by my side. Praying, showing their love and concern for me. My family, relatives, friends, classmates, batchmates, different community groups, my relative’s friends, supportive and kind hospital doctors, nurses and staff.

Thanks to all for giving me support and care. Thanks for all the prayers and love! I am forever grateful to all! May God bless you all!

I pray to God and always talk to Him even before. Just call Him and He will hear us. Open our heart and by faith, received His strength and might. God empower us to live in victory and overcome all the troubles in our lives. With God everything is possible, no matter what is going on in our life. I wonder how can that be possible but then again I was reminded of God’s word that say’s, “With God, all things are possible” Phil. 4:13.

            “Give thanks to the God of heaven. His love endures forever.” — Psalm 136:26
            “I trust in God’s unfailing love for ever and ever.” –Psalm 52:8
Those who have experienced a brain aneurysm that hemorrhage are really sensitive to anything that involves the head. Any kind of headache sends us into the panic mode fearing that we are having another head injury.
There are a number of symptoms that indicate a possible aneurysm has formed. However, quite often these symptoms will be ignored and passed off as a nuisance in life.These sound like everyday things. The recovery process can take months or even years to restore normal everyday functions.
Since April 2011, I was going back using my computer, back to my readings, my internet hobbies, fb, games and all. And I did researches about Brain Aneurysm.
Here are some readings: 
An aneurysm or aneurism is a localized, blood-filled balloon-like bulge in the wall of a blood vessel. Aneurysms can commonly occur in arteries at the base of the brain and an aortic aneurysm occurs in the main artery carrying blood from the left ventricle of the heart. When the size of an aneurysm increases, there is a significant risk of rupture, resulting in severe hemorrhage, other complications or death. Aneurysms can be hereditary or caused by disease, both of which cause the wall of the blood vessel to weaken.
Symptoms for an aneurysm that has not ruptured:
▪   Fatigue
▪   Loss of perception
▪   Loss of balance
Symptoms for a ruptured aneurysm:
▪   Severe headaches
▪   Double vision
▪   Neck pain and/or stiffness
Pain above and/or behind the eyes
Diagnosis of a ruptured cerebral aneurysm is commonly made by finding signs of subarachnoid hemorrhage on a CT scan (Computed Tomography, sometimes called a CAT scan.
Surgical clipping was introduced by Walter Dandy of the Johns Hopkins Hospital in 1937. It consists acraniotomy to expose the aneurysm and closing the base of the aneurysm with a clip. The surgical technique has been modified and improved over the years. Surgical clipping remains the best method to permanently eliminate aneurysms.

Yes, it’s not an easy balance to keep,

but try we must.

Give too much,

drain ourself,

there is nothing left only bitter space.

Give too little,

become a cork,

and we block the flow of God’s love through us.

Keep on balancing.

If I should stay,
I would only be in your way.
So I’ll go, but I know
I’ll think of you ev’ry step of the way.

And I will always love you.
I will always love you.
You, my darling you. Hmm.

Bittersweet memories
that is all I’m taking with me.
So, goodbye. Please, don’t cry.
We both know I’m not what you, you need.

And I will always love you.
I will always love you.

I hope life treats you kind
And I hope you have all you’ve dreamed of.
And I wish to you, joy and happiness.
But above all this, I wish you love.

And I will always love you.
I will always love you.
I will always love you.
I will always love you.
I will always love you.
I, I will always love you.

You, darling, I love you.
Ooh, I’ll always, I’ll always love you.

I love this song ! “I Will Always Love You” — a cover of a Dolly Parton single from 1974 — was released on Nov. 3, 1992. It debuted at No. 40 the Billboard Hot 100 and took two weeks to hit No. 1, where it stayed for 14 weeks, a record at the time.  I love this song before and after it used to be the The Bodyguard soundtrack.

I Will Always Love You Whitney Houston!

heal . . .

Just to forgive others.

To forgive someone else’s shortcomings is to heal old wounds.

This doesn’t mean it need be forgotten, as it is a lesson learned,

nor does it mean to allow it to happen again.

It only means to forgive

and to allow it to heal.

Always remember to give thanks to God for He is good and His love endures forever!

It is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High

To shew forth thy lovingkindness in the morning, and thy faithfulness every night

Upon an instrument of ten strings, and upon the psaltery … upon the harp with a solemn sound

For thou, LORD, hast made me glad through thy work …  I will triumph in the works of thy hands

O LORD, how great are thy works… and thy thoughts are very deep.

Psalms 92:1-5

Comfort on difficult days

smiles when sadness intrudes

rainbows to follow the clouds

laughter to kiss your lips

sunsets to warm your heart

hugs when spirits sag

beauty for your eyes to see

friendships to brighten your being

faith so that you can believe

confidence for when you doubt

courage to know yourself

patience to accept the truth

Love to complete your life.
