How to Get Over a Loss

It’s easy – forget about it and move on.

Not to sound over simplistic, but I guess that is the only way to which we can continue living.

You lost, you screwed up, you are a loser. Fine.

But if you stay down and give up, you continue to be, and will forever be a loser.

I lost an important item, and I grieved over it. I was devastated and very much down. I can’t say that it was an easy process for me, it was very hard. I screwed up.

But if I want to continue moving forward, I have to push it aside – or in this case, push that memory deep down, and forget about it.

Lesson learned, move on.

Thanks for reading.

If you like this post, please follow my blog. I don’t usually post depressing things like my previous post. I used to cover literary things related to writing, but I find that I am not much of a novel writer. Probably just a short story writer. I do dabble in photography and videography, so I suggest you follow me on instagram if you want to see some of my works.

See you later.

Fiddling Around With Photography

With my wife diving into her vlog production more recently because we have more free time, I have rekindled my love for photography.

Armed with my Fujifilm Superzoom, which I had with me since 2014 (yeah, it’s old), and my iPhone, I have been taking photos whenever I can.

I Wish Life Has an Undo Button

I accidentally broke my mother-in-law’s glass jar this morning when I was washing the dishes…

I’m sweating bullets and in a state of despair.

The glass jar was used to hold beef “sinigang” (sour stew). It was very greasy, and I was having a hard time cleaning it. Then I remembered warm water can remove the grease. I boiled water and poured it in the the jar.

As soon as I poured water and it hit the jar, I heard a click sound.

My heart stopped.

The jar broke from a small crack. The entire bottom part separated from the jar.

The water must have been too hot, or the jar was still cool from being washed in morning tap water…

Either way, I’m screwed.

The wife is particularly upset with me for my screw-up.

A similar kind of jar, but with a different design from the one I broke…

The jar was something my mother-in-law acquired when she was working in Italy, so replacing it would be hard. She has long retired from working there as an overseas worker, and this was among the things that she has brought with her.

The jar is also something that my wife is fond of, and she likes the design. I’m going to get a boat-load of crap when this hits the fan.

I haven’t been able to talk to my mother-in-law yet, but I am scared to tell her of the unfortunate news… But, I have to. It is at least my duty for the screw-up I did.

In any case, I really do wish there is some kind of “undo” button to rewind life to make us fix the mistakes that we have made in life. Either big or small ones.

I hope you have a nice day.
