Blogging has opened up so many doors for me. I’ve met so many interesting people, gotten involved in so many things, and have gone to so many places. It’s a world that I never imagined myself to be in as a young mommy of 3 when I started blogging.
There is a saying that goes – Some people come into your life as blessings. Some come into your life as lessons. While some come to your life to teach you to let go. Sure I’ve gotten burned along the way during my short blogging career, having met people whom I thought would stay but unfortunately did not -burning bridges & ending superficial friendships in the process. But I’ve also met some of the most incredible human beings, angels on earth really, who proved to me that there is still kindness & decency in this world after all that’s been said & done.
These are the kind of people who come into your life & 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 & what you want to become. The kind of people who, when you lock eyes with them, you know that at that very moment, they will affect you positively in some way. <3
I strongly believe that there is really a purpose for everyone you meet. Some people come into your life to test you, some to teach you, some to use you. But in some rare instances, there are also some to bring out the very best in you. Not everyone is meant to stay in your life forever, that’s one painful lesson I have learned & have come to accept. Bukod kay Kap, walang forever. ;P
Girls compete with each other. Women empower one another.
These ladies are surrounded with such good vibes & radiates positive energy that you can’t help but shine along. They aren’t busybodies with an opinion on anything & everything, or the type who are set on putting everyone down in order to raise themselves up. They are quiet yet strong. Godly women who don’t see each other as competition but instead stands WITH you, not AGAINST you. Times with them are not spent on idle gossip on who’s who & what’s new, but rather on how we can complement each other in being the best that we can be.
Save for one, our friendship is young, on its initial stages still. But these are women I really look up to, made quite an impact in my life, I truly admire, and I hope will stay..
A couple of weeks ago, we met for a very happy lunch at The Cafe Hyatt City of Dreams Manila. If you are a long time reader of this blog, you know I don’t do ladies lunches. You know I don’t have many lady friends. I mostly bask in the company of Kap or my kids -it is where I am happiest & most comfortable. I am not a social butterfly & I shy away from events. But these ladies have something so pure & beautiful in them that has attracted me & I can’t seem to keep myself away. This is our third time to get together actually, with another one scheduled next week to celebrate Leah’s birthday, and I can say in all honesty that I’ve enjoyed every moment spent with them. No dull moment and every time is a learning experience.

I got hooked & never looked at another the way I do The Cafe. ;) I knew it was THE ONE. Just as I know in my heart that these ladies are THE ONES. <3 We are, after all – Foodies for the Soul!
