[archive] disappointment

nakakabagot minsan isipin kung bakit natin ginagawa ang mga bagay-bagay na hindi naman talaga natin gusto. at kung minsan mas natatagalan natin ang gawin ang mga bagay na hindi naman talaga natin gusto pero dahil sa kakulangan ng panahon at tapang na malaman at sabihin kung ano talaga ang gusto nating gawin sa buhay natin, nakukuntento na tayo sa kung ano ang meron.

i was watching joan of arcadia the other day and as usual, joan was appointed with a divine task, apparently from GOD who came in the form of a 40-year old fitness freak. she had a choice, but ended up thinking that she had none. a simple case of failure of imagination. i like that phrase: failure of imagination. yep, it’s true sometimes, more often than not, our imagination fails us, and badly so, that we end up not realizing that we have been making the wrong decision, choosing the wrong things, or choosing the right things for all the wrong reasons all along. just a case of failure of imagination. that does have a ring to it: failure of imagination. i’m on a roll, so for posterity’s sake: failure of imagination. funny, and weird, how something so special, so amazing, so inventive could fail so miserably, with an impact do huge, seldom people could actually wake up to feel it.

bilang mga bata, tinuturuan tayo na maging kuntento sa kung anong meron tayo, at kasabay naman nito ang katotohanan na hindi masamang mangarap at maghangad ng mas magandang buhay para sa ating mga sarili at sa mga mahal natin sa buhay. di yata’t magkasalungat yung dalawang yon, naisip mo na ba?

ikaw? anuman ang ginagawa mo ngayon sa buhay mo, alam mo ba kung yan talaga ang gusto mong gawin o di kaya, minsan kung mag-isa ka lang at natutulala sa kawalan, naaamin mo rin sa sarili mo na ginagawa mo lang yang bagay na iyan dahil kahit kaunti ay napipilitan ka lang at hindi mo lang talaga alam kung ano ang gusto mong mangyari sa buhay mo?
