It happens like this. One day you meet someone and for some inexplicable reason, you feel more connected to this stranger than anyone else – closer to them than your closest family. Perhaps because this person carries an angel within them – one sent to you for some higher purpose, to teach you an important lesson or to keep you safe during perilous time. What you must do is to trust in them – even if they come hand in hand with pain or suffering – the reason for their presence will become clear in due time.
Though here is a word of warning – you may grow to love this person but remember they are not yours to keep. Their purpose isn’t to save you but to show you how to save yourself. And once this is fulfilled, the halo lifts and the angel leaves their body as the person exits your life. They will be a stranger to you once more.
– Love and Misadventure by Lang Leav –
Yay! I finally got my copy of Love and Misadventure by Lang Leav. Nagpa-reserve kasi ako sa Fully Booked through online then after a week, tinext nila ako na available na daw yung book, pwede ko na daw makuha priced for 595.00Php. Wala nang patumpik-tumpik pa, gora kaagad ako sa Fully Booked.
ANGELS is my most favorite from this book. Ewan ko ba. Kasi habang binabasa ko siya, unti-unti may nabubuong imahe sa isipan ko. At habang tumatagal, lahat ng sinasabi dito ay tumutugma sa imahe ng taong naiisip ko. Nakakatakot. Kasi totoong totoo ang lahat.
I met a stranger. And we became so close. Too close na parang ayoko na humiwalay sa kanya. Too close that it gets me so scared to think that someday, he will leave. Kaya hindi ako umaalis kahit nasasaktan na, kahit nakakaiyak na, kahit minsan nakakapagod na. Because despite all the pain, I’m happy with him.
‘Til it was too late to realize na aalis din pala siya. That’s when I realize his true purpose. And that is to teach me what true love is (nyaks ang corny ko, buset!). Crazy as it may seem, I learned a lot from him. Friendship. Love. Life.
But I regret nothing. At least, once in my life, I met my angel.
