Things I Learned From Madonna

I’m in Cebu right now. Trying to relax and getting some work done too.

While looking for some serenity in my life, an earthquake rocked the Southern part of the Philippines (I’m OK. Where I’m at, I hardly felt it) and Madonna just rocked Superbowl XLVI!

I guess no matter where I am, what I’m doing, or who I’m with, excitement finds me!

 

Before anything else, Madonna’s outfitey:

From: @marceloburlon:

“One of the 3 Givenchy HC outfits of Madonna at the Super Bowl. # madonnasuperbowl #madonna #givenchy #religion #riccardotisci #MadonnaSuperBowl”

I thank my guardian angel for protecting me against Mother Nature. God knows my family especially my kids still need me.

I don’t know but it must be the fresh air and the peaceful surrounding that’s making me emo lately — while watching Madonna’s Superbowl performance, I can’t help but analyze her career. Ano ba ito? Haha!

Anyway, pagbigyan n’yo na aketch. Minsan lang ‘to!

Things I learned from Madonna:

Harness your power so that you may release it with a bang! Madonna has been under the radar for quite some time. After years of being quiet and letting other artists take center stage (ahem, Lady Gaga), Madge finally came out with a series of pasabowgs: she won the Golden Globe for Best Original Song over Elton John; she just released her new album, MDNA; and to top it all, she had a phenomenal performance at the Super Bowl XLVI Half Time Show! BOOM! BOOM! BOOM! Lola still rocks!

The real fountain of youth. The fountain of youth lies in creativity. Continuously reinventing yourself, being creative, and moving forward in life keeps one young at heart. As Madonna would say, “Express yourself… Hey, hey!” Haha!

Fit at every age. It is not by chance nor having good genes that Madge is fit and fabulous at fifty. It is through discipline and her desire to be healthy and active that puts her on top of her game. One needs to be healthy to “run” the course of life. A sedentary life or overindulging in food or the lack of discipline can bring down one’s self-esteem.

Kaya bukas na bukas, magexercise na tayong lahat!

March to your own beat. Do it your own original way and while you’re at it, ilabas na rin ang banda! Hala bira! LOL

Madonna once told Britney Spears to “be true to yourself”, kaya lang di nakinig si bagets kaya ang ending, nagpakalbo si Brit-Brit! Haha!

Love your family, friends, and “fans”. They are your best cheerleaders! They will be there for you during rough times and in your victories. They will love you unconditionally. Focus on people’s love, ditch the haters! Don’t even recognize them.

"L-U-V, Madonna! Y-O-U, you wanna!"

Aim for longevity. Talent, passion, creativity, and ambition are the key to keep you going through life. Follow your dreams and map out a plan on how to achieve them.

"I always say fame can get you in the door, but it takes talent to keep you in the room." - Madonna

Have fun! Just from watching Madonna perform, you know that girl just wanna have fun! Find your passion. Do what you love, love what you do.

The key to having fun is being in the moment and not taking yourself too seriously.

Pray. “Like a virgin” you gotta say “a little prayer”… Believe that there is a higher power. Have faith that everything happens for a reason.

Thigh-high boots forever. Because age is just a number, whether you’re fifteen or fifty five, pasok sa banga ang thigh-high boots basta keri! Haha!

SO…

“Ladies with an attitude
Fellows that were in the mood
Don’t just stand there, let’s get to it
Strike a pose, there’s nothing to it

Vogue! Vogue! Vogue!

Let your body move to the music
Ooh, you’ve got to just
Let your body go with the flow
Ooh, you’ve got to”

Let’s pray for those who were affected by the earthquake in Negros Occidental and some parts of Cebu.
