Find a man who you can tolerate.

Because when all the love fades. only the friendship remains.
then, your patience and understanding will be tested.
change is the essence of life.

be willing to surrender who you are for what you could become.
im not really fond of making new year's resolutions.. but here i am, posting my very own list for 2011:

1. Read a chapter of the Bible every night. (and praying to finish reading the whole Bible)

2. Gain weight. (now this is quite harder than you thought!)

3. Let go. (seriously, tina!)

4. Save!

5. Travel. (i really kept myself from travelling last year. maybe, ill travel this year as a reward.)

.. so here's my list. hoping i could proudly say by december 31, 2011 that i sticked with my plan.

it feels annoying sometimes, but when i look back, it never fails to put a smile on my face.

awwww.. my heart.. :')

in the end the love you take is equal to the love you make
