Richard

I meant to blog about this a few days ago but it was a busy weekend for me. And it is not because of the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight, I didn’t watch it but saw the blow-by-blow account of each round on one website complete with pictures. I just listened to the radio while the fight was going on.  Funny how a few minutes after the fight, everyone was an instant critic. My news feed on FB was full of it. There were instant memes calling the former “the running man” and “best man in hugging”.  They called it the fight of the century but many were disappointed about its outcome and since I know  next to nothing about boxing except for occasional late telecasts of Pacquiao’s  previous fights, let’s leave the analyzing to the experts and the conjectures to those unsatisfied boxing fans who felt that it was not really the fight of the century after all.

There are people I’ve yet to meet who are waiting for my path to intersect with theirs, so they can complete their own journeys.

Put that way, I am looking forward to meet those people who will complete my journey too. How lovely it would be if in the near future, you would meet more people who would make the remaining days of your life something that you would cherish and remember with fondness. They might be future friends you’ve to meet yet,  family members that you haven’t seen for decades, or strangers who  would put a smile on your face  and make you realize your self-worth, that you are quite lovable after all  and you are worthy of being a friend.

Some years ago, (back in the mid 90’s, I think) a close friend who is a nun suggested that I read James Redfield’s Celestine Prophecy. It’s a new age philosophy about how to make connections of events happening in your life.  One of my priest friends even asked me why I have those books in my shelf. He also saw some titles like Embraced By The Light and Soulmates, Karma and Reincarnation. Those were the days when I was fascinated by those subjects. Going back to Redfield’s book, I remembered what he said that everything happens for a reason.  He said and I quote:

“I don’t think that anything happens by coincidence… No one is here by accident… Everyone who crosses our path has a message for us. Otherwise they would have taken another path, or left earlier or later. The fact that these people are here means that they are here for some reason”…”  

It may not mean the same thing as what Richard Paul Evans shared but I get the gist of what both authors were trying to say. What if I didn’t have this blog then I would not have met all these wonderful people whom I interact with everyday through their writings.

What’s your take on this? I’d love to hear from you.

We are all amateurs at life. But if we do not focus too much on our mistakes, a miraculous picture emerges. And we learn that it’s not the beauty of the image that warrants our gratitude, but the chance to paint.  – richard paul evans

I am picturing this scenario in my mind. What if Richard Paul Evans suddenly announces that he is coming to the Philippines to promote  one of his books? You guessed right, I’ll be the first in line to see him and have him signed my book collections personally.  A few months ago, an online friend sent me a signed copy of  The Last Promise, so I know how he signs his name but it’s probably more exciting  if I see that smiling face and commit it to memory. Wishful thinking I guess but I am a fan 🙂

Last year, my daughter gave me a wonderful birthday gift. I had the chance to attend a book-signing of his favorite author and had pictures taken with him. Nicholas Sparks’ books are permanent fixtures in our mini library because she never fails to give me a copy during birthdays and Christmas.

And it’s fun using WordPress’ gallery feature!

P.S. Happy birthday Richard! Here’s to more inspired writing!
