little kid

the other day in the restaurant, a little girl fell from her chair and her face hit the floor. she was crying really hard. but after five minutes, she was running again, as if nothing happened. then it made me realize. we should all be like that little girl. when we get hurt, we cry but not for too long. then we stand up and enjoy life. but we should learn from the hurt that we have experienced.

well, i guess i'm like that kid. especially when it comes to physical pain. i have a low tolerance for physical pain. never got spanked when i was a kid. no, it's not because i'm a good girl, my parents just don't believe spanking is the solution. and i wasn't really engaged into sports. trust me, when i get really hurt, i would cry. you know the threading of eyebrows? i cry pag nagpa-threading ako ng eyebrows. so just imagine when i tried surfing. i really cried when i got hit again by the surfboard. but even while crying, i still headed back to the waves and rode the board with body aches and all. hmmm... does that mean i'm a brave girl? hehehe

i'd also like to take this opporunity to publicly apologize to ate jopay and kuya marvin coz i wasn't able to attend the christening of baby polo. sorry talaga. pero punta talaga ako dapat. may gift na nga ako diba? kaya ready to go na. kaya lang nagka-problem ako. hanggang u.n. avenue lang ang kaya kong maglakbay mag-isa. sorry na po talaga...

uy, surfer ka pala. Where did you surf? I've only surfed La Union. the surf board hitting you can definitely hurt. I've experienced it personally. Like you, I got back on the board to surf after getting hit by the board or falling from the board. i have to. I'm renting the board and paying for the hour kasi. hehe

I don't think i'll spank my kids either... if I ever have kids, that is. :-D

you you are surfing the net in la union just joking...

kyels said...

We all fall and all the time we should learn how to get up, brush our knees and say, this shall all pass.

(:

vina said...

we should never lose the kid in us!

happy easter! and yes, you must be a brave girl to try surfing!

ghee said...

oh yes,i can say that u are a brave girl nga,balik ka pa rin pala sa surfing kahit nasaktan ka na :)

di rin ako napalo when i was a kid,kasi bunso at marunong umiwas,haha!

its okay,nothing wrong to cry,i cry a lot din pag gusto ko,hehe,pang tanggal ng stress :)

Toe said...

I've never been spanked either. Pareho tayong good girls. :) Uy, surfer ka na. I guess that's the best way to learn... by falling and then getting up again. Good luck on your new sport Tin-Tin!

Richard said...

Being able to get up and continue, in spite of pain is important. Good for you.

carey said...

what makes kids endearing is their trait of not holding on to the past, they can easily forgive and forget... i remember my two pamangkins having a big fight, with both of them crying...but i was surprised after few mins, one of them said, "c'mon let's play!", then they happily ran outside the house as if nothing happened. we learn a lot from these little angels.

liz said...

tani: happy easter din! and enjoy din po :)

tita dine: you're surfing in the water also? wow! :)

BW said...

You have a low tolerance for physical pain? I guess you were a spoiled child ! hehe.. What about emotional pain - looks like you're much tougher in this department :)

cruise said...

tama ka ang maganda sa mga bata resilient sila sa mga experiences nila. magandang tularan.

pero minsan mahirap din kung sobrang traumatic ang mangyari sa bata, minsan nga dinadala pa sa psychiatrist kapag merong mga traumatic experience ang bata kasi di nila basta basta yun makakalimutan.

melai said...

Once I was a little girl.....
wala na, la na ko masabi lol!!
I remember a past experience that really changed my life. It was a very big decision and I remember I cried during that moment pero kinabukasan pag-gising ko ibang ako na ako.. di ako ulit umiyak, ngayon na lang ulit kasi naiiyak ako sa mga pinagsasabi ko e lol!

Ferdz said...

I also don't gree in instilling pain to discipline a child. Mas lalo silang matatakot at magtatago ng emotions nila.

Wow! Tough girl ka, kahit na-iiyak na sugod pa rin! hehe

mr. pencil said...

ei, ate tin.. salamat sa pagbisita...

napadaan lang ulit..

link kita ah.. hehe!!

Alternati said...

I have a weirdly high tolerance for physical pain. Just recently I slammed a car door on my finger. It hurt really bad, but I just looked at it and went on my merry ay as if nothing happened. I bandaged it when i got home. It's healing now. heheh

I totally agree with the resilience of the little girl. Crying never accomplished anything.

Alternati said...

Oh, and BTW... I tagged you with a looooong movie meme from snglguy. hehehe...

tin-tin said...

bw: ako spoiled?? oo yata. hahahaha ;p

cruise: oo nga noh. di ko naisip yun ha. may traumatic experience ka ba? :)

melai: so ano naman yung decision na yun? napaka-emotional mo ata ngayon. dhel ba yan sa paglisan mo?

tin-tin said...

ferdz: congrats po ulit! mas magtatago ba sa emotions ang bata kung ganun? :)

pencil: salamat di po :)

alternati: ako siguro iiyak na. hehehe. feeling ko di ka iyakin noh. kaw pa. hehehe. i saw the tag. grabe ha! 2 lang tlga kme ha. salamat ha ;p

ann said...

Pain physically ay pwedeng idaan sa iyak, then wala na di ba? Sana ganyan din yung emotional pain, after mo maiiyak ay wala na rin.

Happy weekend!

Alternati said...

hahahaha... Syempre special mention kayo. I dunno when I got the tag you two were the first ones I thought of tagging. I dunno why. Blame mo si snglguy... sa kanya nagsimula ang lahat. hehehehe

ghee said...

ah okay,haha!panganay ka nmn pala!we have one thing in common?LOL!

happy weekend,Tin Tin!

duke said...

ahhh kids... we can learn lots from them. I didn't know you have low tolerance for physical pain. hmmmmnnn...
