Where randomness may lead you.

Where randomness may lead you.
They say it is more disappointing when things don’t go the way you planned them. You were so focused on getting that goal yet you stumbled and everything just crumbled right before your eyes.
We had our own moments like that, yet most of us never really learned. We still make sure we keep control on the path we have taken that led us to disappointments. I am not saying it’s a bad thing or anything, what I am saying is that when we are so focused on getting things the way we planned it right on the dot, we get to miss things out and eventually result to your plans shattered to pieces.
Life throws a lot of curve balls our way, some choose to dodge them some choose to take a swing; some have people behind them to catch them. These curve balls cause our plans to crumble if we don’t widen our horizons.
I am not perfect in dodging or striking or catching these curve balls, just like everyone I know. But I think I have hit a few home-runs. How? Randomness. It is surprising where our randomness leads us in life. I always believe that the right path is not always going straight, turning left or right and heading straight again, the right path is taking that zigzag road and enjoying every bit of it letting your randomness help you through. The gift of life was given to us not to worry about it but to live it to the fullest and randomness is a part of it.
I love being random most of the time. This is when I get to enjoy the simple pleasures in life. Where boundaries do not really exist and where rules are not thicker than that biggest encyclopedia you can find.
My randomness took me to a journey in life where when I get older, I would look back and say I have lived that life and I have enjoyed those moments. One particular example: supporting Anne Curtis-Smith. I have idolized her since her teeny-bopper days as they called it before, (Chubi days as I fondly call it) but only on the sidelines. I never really joined any group or anything. But seeing her last September 2009 during the Ondoy days made me realize how much of a “bigger person” she is. Bigger than the smile she has every single day, bigger than that 2008 Best Actress she got from MMFF for Baler, bigger than the name I see on billboards, movie posters, teleseryes etc. Her care for the people affected by the typhoon clicked that switch in me that made me decide to do everything I can to support her. I have met her a few times just like a random supporter on the side. But her good heart made me realize that I have to be out there and support her all the way. Thus the fANNEatics. This randomness led me to getting to know how much of a good person she is other than her impeccable acting. This randomness does not end yet. And I hope it won’t. There is so much to share and experience.
So, for me being random has a lot of advantages to it. It leads you to magical things, events, places and people so to speak. Be random and don’t be afraid to enjoy every bit of it. Because one day, youll be able to say: I have lived.
