Embrace failure. Fail forward. Fail quickly. So that you can start again.
It's the only road to success.
To your great success,God
P.S. Ana, you will succeed. I know.

To embrace failure, I guess, comes with accepting that as a person, I repeatedly commit the same mistakes again and again...and although there is no one else to blame but myself, reading this message made me realize that God accepts me for both good and bad points...I have no right not to be accepting and just forgive myself and move on. I am currently picking myself up, piece by piece, starting all-over again from scratch. I have been here, so I hope my old persevering self has not forgotten how it felt, the techniques, mindset, and values to follow to play this game well. I still believe in a personal belief that "You and I, we are meant to be great"! :-) After the quick failure, I am making sure I'll get there again fast this time... I have hope! =)
Hope dangles on a string
Like slow spinning redemption
Winding in and winding out
The shine of it has caught my eye
Last night was a blast! I waited for Ana to get off from her work, which was already past 7. Concert will start at around 8pm, and we were still far from the venue. I was super anxious already we might miss Hands Down--a song I might say has a big "sentimental value" to me! ;p The reason why I was there in the first place!
While waiting in a cafeteria near Ana's office building, I listened to my mp3 of Dashboard songs to prep me for the night. I was expecting to get there late already and miss out the opening band and the first few songs, which I don't mind as long as I have company to the concert I wouldn't miss for the world. We bought the cheapest tickets on its early-bird rate: Php 580 ($13) only! ;p
You are the best one, of the best ones
We all look like we feel
You have stolen my...
You have stolen my heart
We arrived Trinoma (the venue) at past 8pm already, even bought froyo to cool down, and realized the concert started already. Now that I am online searching for the set of last night's event, I realized we missed out several songs already. That time, when Ana and I settled at the back part of the "back-est" area of the whole venue (near the exit!), Chris Carrabba and the whole DC band was already playing Screaming Infidelities.
Check out the songs we missed and caught! Got this from Chesca's FB account. =)
The truth is, I wasn't at all in big regret for coming late coz the line up that we were able to catch were my most favorite songs of Dashboard: Vindicated, Stolen, and Hands Down! =) Truly the best ones of the best ones! ;-)
This air is blessed, you share with me.
This night is wild, so calm and dull.
These hearts, they race, from self-control.
Perfect song to cap the night! I was so happy to be in one venue with the band that touched my heart with their songs. I just let go, danced and sang my heart out while Ana recorded a vid of me. Haha! The moment was just ...pure love! =)
The closest pic I can get of him. Haha!
Hands down this is the best day I can ever remember.
Always remember the sound of the stereo.
The dim of the soft lights. The scent of your hair, that you twirled in your fingers.
And the time on the clock, when we realized "It's so late!"
And this walk that we share together.
The streets were wet, and the gate was locked,
So I jumped it, and let you in.
And you stood at the door, with your hands on my waist.
And you kissed me like you meant it. And I knew...that you meant it.
Outfit post! =)
I wore my basic white dress with a denim vest, my printed white flats, plus my zipper+studded necklace as accent. =) Roomy ensemble for all the outdoor dancing! ;-)
I am in a bipolar-y high-and-low mood lately, happiness is everywhere, but every time I think of my financial issues, my heart felt like being squeezed till my eyes get teary eyed. I am not used to talking about money-matters in my blog before, since it's something personal. But now I guess the limited audience of my Blogger gives me the licence to just blabber what's inside of me. I guess there's nothing wrong with letting people know of your failure and weaknesses (sometimes!)...just as long as you have plans of getting up and back on track again. =)
Anyway, this is, to any human, but normal.
Don't turn away
Dry your eyes, dry your eyes
Don't be afraid
Keep it all inside, all inside
When you fall apart
Dry your eyes, dry your eyes
Life is always hard for the belle of the boulevard
Thank you Dashboard for a night of happiness that wouldn't match wads of cash. =,)
