fall in love (to welcome february)

and just like that, january has left and we're now on the second month of the year. time flies by so fast, 'no? i always look forward to this month because i like dropping hints to jp to take me out on a date somewhere new. haha. but seriously, february, more than any other month of the year is always highlighted by romance. yihee! LOVE is the theme, folks!

last night, i had a dream about our wedding. and like most dreams, by the time i woke up, i had forgotten the details, but was left with a really good (bordering on mushy) feeling. i suddenly remembered this short poem/prayer from way back in college. being in "the" ateneo (hehe. kunyari sosy ako!), you get to read a lot of articles and books from great theologists and philosophers. some of them remarkable, and make a big impact on your life, and some of them, well, you push their ideas to the back of your mind. waaaay back! haha. this short note is from fr. pedro arrupe, sj. and i take this one to heart. i'd forgotten the exact words, so i did a bit of googling (thank you, internet!). 

i'm sharing this with you to start your february (the month of love!) right. here it is: 

Fall in Love
Nothing is more practical than
finding God, than
falling in Love
in a quite absolute, final way.
What you are in love with,
what seizes your imagination, will affect everything.
It will decide
what will get you out of bed in the morning,
what you do with your evenings,
how you spend your weekends,
what you read, whom you know,
what breaks your heart,
and what amazes you with joy and gratitude.
Fall in Love, stay in love,
and it will decide everything.
i hope you're having a great start to your month! love, love, love!
