Note to self: BE BRAVE

Courage is not the absence of fear. It is acting in spite of it. - Mark Twain. 
Given a choice, mas madali ang maging duwag. Effortless. Painless. But all of us deserves so much more than a life lived in fear and cowardice. Okay lang naman na matakot. Naniniwala ako na lahat ng tao, takot. It is because anything can happen any moment. But this applies not just to negative things but also to good things - to miracles even. Dahil wala ngang makakapagsabi talaga kung ano'ng mangyayari, life itself is a surprise, and an adventure in which we would do very well to participate with an open mind, a trusting heart, and a fighting spirit. 

Life doesn't end dahil lang takot ka, or worse, dahil naduwag ka. It goes on. May mangyayari at mangyayari pa rin. Eh di mas maganda nang may say ka sa mangyayari, di ba; that you take an active part in your life since buhay mo yan, hindi yung para kang manok na naghihintay na lang kung kailan yung fiesta. 

We were given a life full of choices para hindi tayo maging helpless. Usually, a choice is all it takes to change one's life for the better - a choice to be positive. To think AND do positive things, and not just dream of escape even when one is wide awake.
kaigachi is a conjugation of the Japanese term "kigaicha" or crazy. It roughly translates as "crazy about something."

"One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light but by making the darkness conscious." - C.Jung
