IT TAKES A LEAP OF FAITH

i turned 40 recently. kwarenta. pakingsheet. who would have thought that i’d be forty. pero kung sabagay, nung ipinanganak ako ng mommy ko nung 1965, forty one na siya. and she ended up living a great life. she’s still alive and healthy at 81. si jet din, she doesn’t look her age. masayahin kasi at malakas tumawa. sa akin kaya, ano ang mangyayari?

ewan ko. ni hindi ko nga alam kung pabalik na ako sa pinanggalingan ko o papunta pa rin sa patutunguan. basta ang isang alam ko, malaki pa rin ng promise na pwedeng ibigay sa akin ng kapalaran, kung ano man iyon. in any case, ang importante ngayon para sa akin ay: una, sa tingin ko ay nasa tamang direksyon ang buhay ko at ikalawa, tigas titi pa rin ako.


may kanta si springsteen na kanina ko pa pinakikinggan ng paulit-ulit. ang title ay “Leap Of Faith“. ginawa niya ito around the same time when he too was turning 40 years old.

Tonight the moon’s looking young but I’m feelin’ younger
‘Neath a veil of dreams sweet blessings rain
Honey I can feel the first breeze of summer
And in your love I’m born again

the song sums up how turning forty feels like for me. it’s not that bad. in fact, i love it. why? because i am at a point in my life where i am truly independent. oo virginia – “i am the captain of my fate and the master of my soul” and all that invictus crap. kung tutuusin, wala na akong hihilingin pa, i am happy and my wife is with me – hoy, take note ha: happy and “my wife” in one sentence. importante kasi yon. BOTTOM LINE: being 40 is cool. in fact, it feels like being reborn.

  1. 40 & happy. Ano ba mawi-wish ko para sa iyo? Contentment? You already are. More blessings to come? You’re continuously showered with it.

    I guess “wisdom & health” will do, because we should never run out of those.

    Ka-batjay, belated happy birthday!

  2. happy bday batjay, medyo matagal na hindi nakalibot, busy kasi sa ka ka pala ng snow. merry christmas, baka meron kang bibingka dyan, hehehe.
