This blog was scheduled to be posted on December 1st, 2011 at 00:01 am (GMT +7). Even though I have uploaded the main picture two months ago and written the content several days ago, I want to skip November 2011 all together. Yes, I know. After almost two years blogging on this website of mine, finally there is a month where not a single blog was posted.

Admittedly, the real life is more important to me.

This time, though, I am not the one who is facing a challenge. Not one, not two but four people I deeply care about started opening up and shared the challenges they have been facing in late October 2011. On the one hand, I was dumb struck by them. On the other hand, I am determined to help them in one way or another.

It’s my turn to help them.

These are the people who have been there for me through good times and most especially bad times. I just wish they have told me the minute they started having those problems instead of waiting for months before doing so. Instead, I found out about them all at once! So I decided to dedicate the entire month of November 2011 to help sort things out.

Did I succeed?

I tried my best. In most cases, I had to settle with ‘agree to disagree’. However, the support will always be there because we don’t have to agree to support one another. Sometimes we laugh. Sometimes we cry. Sometimes we scold each other. In the end, we judge a tree by the fruits it bears. We don’t need words to know the friendship is real.

We can feel it!

There is a greater lesson for me after all is said and done, though. Do any of you remember those multiple-choice tests we used to have back at schools? Life is a lot like that. In every ‘challenge’ we face, there are several choices from which the correct one is to be chosen. People are different so most likely we have our own approach to this.

So tell me, how to know which one is the correct ‘answer’?

    WOW!!! It must have been a tough month for you. Is everything okay now? Well, I hope so. My answer is sometimes we just know the right choice and most of the times we follow our guts. Good luck Lusy!

      First,

      That’s the problem when you blog with your heart…. I was told this: You should try to
      find a solution there so that your blog won’t be neglected.

      I’m thinking on guest posting next and collaboration with other bloggers. It has to wait till I’m back though. Thanks for asking. Everything is okay.

      Follow your guts makes perfect sense. :-)

    I only know three… Who is the other one?

    Thank you for all your support sis. I follow my heart and now live with the consequences. Everything will be okay though. Hugs!!!

      Second,

      My answer, it depends on the case. If you’re talking about relationship, don’t
      follow your heart only. The heart is stupid. Some said listen to your heart but let your head show you the way. Well, the head is stubborn.

      I’d say, when it comes to relationship, just do the right thing. But that’s just me. Glad I could help you. Hugs back!!!

        So the right thing is to wait for the right time? Sigh…

  • Lorna

    Sadly you don’t. You just pick the one which seems most right at the time.

      Third,

      Thanks for being here, sis! Yeah, I know what you mean. A lot of decisions I made are like that. But sometimes when we wait for the right time, it can help. Don’t you think?

    Sorry girls, trying to reply all over again now. I am on a trip in a place with a very bad connection so I don’t have any choice but to reply in bulks. Every time I hit ‘Post’, the reply went ‘Poof!’ instead. So when it finally got in, the ‘copy and paste’ wasn’t complete … (>.<) Let me try doing it one by one… please bear with me… Again, sorry…

      No wonder no updates on your social media accounts… I don’t have to know all the challenges you faced last month. I understand you need a break from all of them. Good that you are back to blogging. I love reading ‘YOU’ in this page, Lus. I wish I could help more… good luck!!!

  • Jemmy

    I worry because not know where are you. Glad things is ok after Nov… take care Lus…

    No need to go on-line if you can’t. 

    Friendship is a blessing and if you be a friend, you will have friends wherever you are. Start from ourselves, yes? 

    Choices? Just choose one and be ready for the consequence. 

  • Ita

    Oh my…. I’m speechless… Hugs!!!

    I think, trial and errors can also be applied after all, life is too short and a lot of people just don’t want to take things too seriously by just going with the flow. It is also important to know what to do once we find out that we make the wrong choice. Good post Lusy!
