A Love Devoid of Complication?

Love is unfair. More often than not, someone in a relationship is always on top of the other – more dominant for that matter. The stronger one always gets to be the dictator; the weak and passive, on the other hand, is nothing more than just an obedient follower. Compromise is a word that’s not in their dictionary apparently. 

Love is also demanding that’s why it’s unfair. It asks too much time and effort from a person. If ever a man fails to spend hours with his significant other, he can be already accused of taking his girlfriend for granted. 

Love is selfish. And it’s gonna be that way for the longest time possible for so long as it’s unfair and selfish. The guy would forever want his girlfriend’s time or if, the girl’s unlucky, the guy would always choose his friends over her and yet still expects her to understand because she loves him.

Such is an excerpt from my girl friend Aimee’s "Watching from the Sidelines". Aren’t these situations familiar?

In a society wherein a cinema line-up will never be complete without a romantic flick, we have this tendency to measure the grandness of a love story with how dramatic its plot is. What we sometimes forget is that the world’s formula of love is different from the love story God has penned for us.

While we know that God wants the best for us, is there a way for love to not be complicated?

I’m neither Dr. Phil nor a love guru though at 22, I’ve been in a relationship for more than five years now. Prior to that, I’ve had my share of moments when Zedd’s “If our love is tragedy, then why are you my remedy?” was my mantra.

Love will never be devoid of challenges but aren’t we blessed that He has given us the ability to see warning signs?

1. Never be too absorbed with the idea of a poster couple.
Sure, Noah and Allie’s passion in The Notebook is striking and how Mr. Darcy treats Elizabeth is impressive but at the end of the day, their story is different from ours. We shouldn’t settle for mediocre love but we likewise have to check if our standards are still realistic.

Ballet Beautiful Workout Videos Review: Why Natalie Portman And The Victoria's Secret Angels Love Them

As someone who encounters difficulty in gaining weight and who doesn't find pumping iron appealing, searching for a workout can be difficult. I love to swim and surf but sadly, I cannot do these things everyday.

The dance goddesses truly blessed me for I came across with Ballet Beautiful, a workout method that is designed to give someone a ballerina’s graceful yet strong physique. Mary Helen Bowers, a former member of the New York City Ballet, handles the class.

The Mind Museum Taguig Review: Where Science Comes Alive!

Science, though it sometimes stirred my curiosity as a child, bore me with its complexity. While I definitely appreciated that my father bought me stacks of encyclopedia, the young me couldn't help but wish for Science to be presented in a highly-engaging manner. Kids these days are blessed for this is exactly what the Mind Museum in Taguig has in mind!

The Mind Museum in Taguig is the country’s first world-class science museum which aspires to remove the impression that science is “cold, boring, and unapproachable.” Upon receiving complimentary tickets for a museum tour, I immediately thought of Aujen and his younger brother Ayu who are both die-hard fans of anything scientific and mathematical.

You’ll be greeted by Aedi which basically stands for “idea” when reversed. 

Summer Haul: Espadrilles, Day Dresses, Jack Johnson

While a summer haul should typically have bikinis and Daisy Dukes, I’ll be refraining from a beach trip for the next two months. It dampens my heart but I have to save my work vacation credits for a bigger travel plan this coming May.
