Measure Your Life in Love


Five days to go! Yes dears, it’s gonna be my birthday on the 11th of September.

It’s been consistent through the years: I get a little bit more emotional on the days leading to my birthday. I get more melancholic, reflective. (Di ba normal naman yun?)

Another year has passed. So what?

This year, I would say -

“Measure your life in love.” Yes, that’s a good motto. Measure your life — not in pesos, not in honorific titles, not in clicks or pageviews — but in love.

So bring it on. Thanks for all the love, my loyal friends. That includes you all MGG readers. Each and every comment you leave here (currently at 12,440 and counting) are like flower petals in a giant garland of love for MGG. This song is for you:

Seasons of Love (from Rent)

Five Hundred Twenty-Five Thousand
Six Hundred Minutes
Five Hundred Twenty-Five Thousand
Moments so dear
Five Hundred Twenty-Five Thousand
Six Hundred Minutes
How Do You Measure - Measure A Year?
In Daylights - In Sunsets
In Midnights - In Cups Of Coffee
In Inches - In Miles
In Laughter - In Strife

In - Five Hundred Twenty-Five Thousand
Six Hundred Minutes
How Do You Measure
A Year In The Life?

How About Love?
How About Love?
How About Love?
Measure In Love

Seasons of Love.
Seasons of Love.

Five Hundred Twenty-Five Thousand
Six Hundred Minutes
Five Hundred Twenty-Five Thousand
Journeys To Plan

Five Hundred Twenty-Five Thousand
Six Hundred Minutes

How Do You Measure The Life
Of A Woman Or A Man

In Truth That She Learned
Or In Times That He Cried
In Bridges He Burned
Or The Way That She Died

It’s Time Now - To Sing Out
Though The Story Never Ends
Let’s Celebrate
Remember A Year In The Life Of Friends

Remember the Love
Remember the Love
Remember the Love
Measure In Love

(Oh you got to you got to remember the love,)
(You know that love is a gift from up above)
(Share love, give love, spread love)
(Measure, measure your life in love.)

Seasons Of Love(2x)

(Measure your life, measure your life in love)

Now, listen:

    Another Virgo…Advanced greetings, mine was yesterday. Relative to the melancholy days before the big day, a friend of mine told me that the first 52 days starting from one’s birthday onward is the highest point of a person’s year-thus all endeavours will supposedly prosper. The last 52 days (counting from the day before one’s birthday backward) of a person’s year is supposedly the lowest point in my life, thus the seemingly endless parade of melancholia, irritations and mishaps. I don’t totally believe it but, per my experience, mid-July and August have always been hellish months for me. Or maybe I just psyched myself up about the 52 days..anyway, I’m just glad it’s over..Best regards..

    Happy birthday, Migs! Measure your life in love indeed. September-borns are a terrific bunch, in my view (I’m involved with one now). So bring out the pink champagne and banish those pre-birthday woes! The love you are looking for is just around the corner. May our Fabulous God grant you your heart’s desire on your special day.
