The CFC Singles for Family and Life Cubao District hosted a Live Pure Tambayan Acoustic Night dubbed as “High on Love” last April 25, 2015 at Cityland Shaw Tower, Mandaluyong City. The theme is descriptive of the event since it was held on the Penthouse, 32nd floor of the Tower. Approximately fifty (50) single young professionals attended the Acoustic Night, including eighteen (18) non-community singles who relished the cool night breeze and enjoyed the company of new friends while listening to calming acoustic music and feasting with unlimited snacks/pica-pica and drinks.
In our modern world where “high” is usually associated with drugs, success, marriage and sex, and being single is often frowned upon, Jepoy Meneses, CFC SFL National Coordinator spoke about a different kind of “high” if we start to embrace our singlehood and recognize our true identity. He reminded the participants that we are sons and daughters of a Heavenly Father which makes us princesses and princes. Instead of impatiently waiting for Mr. or Ms. Right, he advised them to strive to become a Mr. or Ms. Right, instead. Noting that happiness is attractive, he urged them to laugh often and just savor their life as singles. He recommended the singles to allow themselves to be filled to the brim of God’s love before entering into a committed relationship as it calls for a self-giving love. Ending, he highlighted the following points: value your identity as a child of God, true happiness can only be given by God, embrace singlehood, strive to be the best version of yourself and nurture life-giving relationships.
