Gaining Wisdom

Everyday is new learning experience. This holds true for everyone – but for me, since turning 26 – it has been magnified. I never thought that I will literally learn something new each day – but just last night I came to understand what ‘learning’ exactly meant. I guess learning comes with age, and since I’m a year older – I have the past 365 days to thank for – because I’m a better, stronger person now than I was a year ago.

I’m always in awe whenever I hear very sensible advice. Parang – why didn’t I think of that? My mom always tells me – wisdom comes with age – because its the experience that molds you. You become brighter, smarter, wiser, and more mature. The things that bothered you a few years ago becomes a laughing matter now. It’s something to be learned.


It’s so odd – that being a Catholic – I seldom go to Mass and pray – My 2006 New Year’s resolution is to pray more and develop a better relationship with the God – since then I’ve been praying and trying to go to church whenever I can. To tell you the truth – I’ve never been calmer than I am now – I’m more at peace with things (with exceptions of mood bursts and PMS) – I never thought I’d say this but PRAYING REALLY HELPS. It takes away the negative vibe in me thus making those around me become more positive. I’m a pessimist – I really am – but now, somehow that’s slowly changing. It’s really weird how I see good things with the bad. I realized (while watching Pinoy Big Brother Celebrity Edition) that there is good in everyone, no exceptions. I just hope the ‘goodness’ in us will never run out. 🙂
