    Peter Paul
  • Author's Note


    The term 'amalgamation' pertains to a combination of two or more. This is a personal blog which is a combination of musings of my activities, thoughts, inspirations, ideas, and everything that happens around me.

  • Be inspired, have peace of mind


    As a personal blog, there are articles written not just for the sole intention of writing but are also directed to share experiences to uplift and inspire the downtrodden.

  • Love, love, love


    There's beauty in everything. Be filled with love as you listen to love songs you may want to sing along with.

  • Tragedies and Disasters


    Life isn't always about fun and happiness. Get a glimpse of me as I speak my mind about tragedies, disasters, and pains.

  • Hope


    Life won't have meaning if everyone turns blind and start to see no hope. There is always hope, just waiting to be lit. Read through articles filled with hope.

  • Movies and so much more!


    Occasionally, I'm inclined to write reviews for movies, places, restos, or just about anything. Watch out for those cutting remarks! =)

  • Journey


    Hey, life's a journey. What better way to immortalize oneself than through writing?

  • Share your thoughts!


    I would greatly appreciate it if you shared your thoughts with me. Please feel free to leave messages at the comments box below each post. Thanks!

Emancipated: Blue Butterfly

Appa hesitatingly had another bath today. At his 12th month, I'm estimating his weight to be around 7 to 8 pounds now. I'll still need to weigh him in next week. I cleaned a scab developing in his right elbow with just alcohol because I didn't know what to apply on it. It's going to heal, I just need to keep it clean until it does. His crate smells like heaven and he's sleeping like a log right now in it. So what does my puppy have to do with a post entitled, "Emancipated"?

A lot actually.

I've never been the type of person to stay in a place that created problems for me. I'm a civilized person, but I don't have to like you if I thought you are not a good person. Life is easier and happier that way for me. And through unfaltering persistence, perseverance and hardwork, I've come to love the comfortable life I have where I have what I need and I can get what I want. I'm loving my lucky life. It's too short to waste it thinking about problems.

Appa has taught me there's so much more important things to be thinking about than fickle things, responsibilities to take, jobs to do, tasks to accomplish. I guess in a surreal way, he helped put things in perspective for me. Where do I put the problems? Nowhere. I turn my back altogether from it, always look forward at the brighter side of things, and do what must be done.

Today I learned how everything we need has already been given to us, the hands to mold, the feet to move, the heart to care and the mind to think. All the problems come when these four are misused. But once all four are used properly, there's no time for problems. There's not even enough time in the day to be happy. There's just pure emancipation.
