TurnbackTuesday is a section of LovingSunshine.com dedicated to personal thoughts and other stories of inspiration, love and life that I share with you every week. TurnbackTuesday is scheduled every Tuesday, 11:30AM PH time. 

Late last year, I developed a raging love affair with the word wild. It chanced upon me at a time when I much needed the mightiness of its current and the haunting shapes of its shadows. I needed to be wild, so wild came for me.

Do you believe that? Remember how Dumbledore (of Rowling's Harry Potter series of course) said, the sword of Griffindor will answer to those who need it? That it shall present itself to the champion who needed it... well that's how I would describe the word wild and its enchanting little walk on my carpet. I was bleeding myself dry with my motionless stupor, and I couldn't care less about death. It was ugly, bland as a salt-free diet, and stiffening to imagine. So wild cut through my walls and pushed me to the floor. I was forced to stand up, then when I realized how cool it was to lose a little bit of security, I decided to make dust angels (since snow in the Philippines is a possibility that I dare not see happen in my lifetime).

For the sake of glorifying the pleasant turn of events, let me share with you some songs that touch base on the wilderness called life--and emotions.


Be careful how you touch her, she'll awaken
As sleep's the only freedom that she knows
And when you walk into her eyes, you won't believe
The way she's always paying for a debt she never owes

State of Grace

We learn to live with the pain.
Mosaic broken hearts
But this love is brave and wild.

Wild Moments 

Maybe in our wildest moments
We could be the greatest, we could be the greatest
Maybe in our wildest moments
We could be the worst of all

 What other songs do you think of at the mention of the word wild? What does being wild mean to you (open for positive and/or negative thoughts on the four-letter-monster)?


  1. Snow Patrol's "New York" came into my mind maybe because of its chorus. When I listen to it, I feel like it's calling the inner me to come out and break free. To be wild is to let myself ignite. To be wild is all about the possibilities of discovering a new side of myself. Someone who is stronger. Someone who is ready to do new things. Someone who is up for a new adventure each day. Someone who will do whatever it takes to do everything that's on her bucket list.

    Inspiring post by the way. :)
