Wednesday, January 13, 2010when you've gotten tired of your old sneakers, wouldn't you want to buy a new pair of shoes?
so you go to the mall, and then you see this perfect pair. it's new, shiny, and much better compared to the old pair you've got at home.
so you go inside, you touch the shoes, feel it, enjoy it. you try it on.
but it doesn't fit.
sad as you may be, you have no choice but to go back to that old pair of sneakers you have at home...
and then you realize, it isn't so bad after all. it may look old but, it fits right-- perfectly, even-- doesn't it?
and thus arises the debate between settling for what you have or "trying" something new.
sige, nagsasawa ka na dun sa sapatos mo. so tumingin kang bago. wala namang kasya. yung iba nga, kahit hindi kasya, binibili pa rin, magkaroon lang ng "bago". hanggang sa masugatan yung paa nila para lang maipilit maisoot yung perpektong sapatos na nakita nila sa tindahan. sa huli, sila rin ang nasaktan. eh kung hindi nalang nila iniwanan yung luma nilang sapatos sa bahay, eh di sana masaya pa rin sila ngayon, walang sugat.
hindi naman natin mapipigilang mahumaling sa mga bagong bagay. hindi natin maiiwasang magsawa sa mga bagay na matagal nang nasa buhay natin-- pwede rin nating tignan sa anggulong nasasanay na tayo kaya hindi na natutuwa o nahuhumaling katulad ng nararamdaman natin para dun sa bagay na "bago" at wala pang gasgas.
yung masama nga lang diyan, 'pag may sinubukan tapos hindi nagustuhan, o hindi "kasya", iniiwan nalang ulit yung mga yun. kahit akala nila "perpekto" ka na para sa kanila. tapos, pati yung "napaglumaan" eh, naiiwan din sa tabi-tabi. babalikan nalang pag nasubukan na yung "iba" (pero at least binalikan. hahaha)
hindi ko sinasabing 'wag na tayong sumubok ng "bagong sapatos". may mga pagkakataon na yung mga napaglumaan eh, sira-sira na talaga. wala nang pag-asang maayos (meron naman kasing pwede pang matahi, o malagyan ng rugby para magkabit). ikaw ba, magtiyatiyaga ka sa bagay na talagang sira-sira na?
someday, everyone will find their "perfect old sneakers". though there are a lot of tempting "perfect new shoes" at the store window, we will realize that only a few will fit as perfectly as those sneakers. some new shoes may fit for a while but after a few tries, wearing it will start to hurt.
don't wish to be anyone's "perfect new shoes". be someone's "perfect old sneakers".
for those of you who have been someone's "perfect new shoes", well, to make yourself feel better, keep in mind that even for a brief moment-- for a short while-- you were perfect for that person and at that moment everything was real. it just wasn't meant to be.
sa mga "perfect old sneakers", congrats. napakasaya ko't masaya kayo. even if, as time passes, you all get worn out, at least hindi pa kayo nasisira. (sa mga sira na, 'wag nang ipilit kung ayaw na, haha!)
sabi nga ni mommy, "kung kayo, kayo! kahit anong mangyari!"
