Sleepless in the Philippines

Sleepless in the Philippines
Sometimes I need to write, I believe we search ways to explain ourselves to others, we throw out the bait hoping someone understands.

I was lying in bed here in Baguio yesterday watching the movie
“Sleepless in Seattle.”

The clicker in my hand, brain numb, rather mixed up and confused, I hear Tom Hanks talking. A radio talk show Psychologist host has asked,
“What are you going to do?”

Tom answers,
“Get out of bed every morning and breathe in and out all day.

And after a while I won't have to remind myself to do it.

And then after a while I won't remember how perfect things were.”

Life and living is not as simplified and macho as reading a book or a Blog post, or looking at your photos on Facebook. I know and feel the anger and frustration when I say,
“Life is Good.”

I have bargained with my life many times, and I learned I have no choice, of the two options, life is bad and life is good, a sane man must choose as Tom said in the movie.

“Get out of bed every morning and breathe in and out all day. And after a while I won't have to remind myself to do it.”

Life is good, and sometimes we do need reminded, sometimes we need a life less normal, however I try to remember to breath in and breath out, and put one foot in front of the other.
