Flipping through the pages too fast

There is not a day that I question the legitimacy of my being. The past days, it’s lingering. When I feel like a fraud, it paralyzes my core. I struggle to say the right words because I don’t know where I stand on things. I need more time to process my thoughts I think becauseContinue reading “Flipping through the pages too fast”

Shackles of Yesterday and the Promise of Today

My story always starts with my childhood. I have settled that it is both my gift and my curse. I have narrated over and over the passing of my mother that changed the course of our lives. Today, I began wondering and wandering- would our lives ever be different if she were still in it?Continue reading “Shackles of Yesterday and the Promise of Today”

Self-awareness: The path to uncovering oneself

In the era of self-help and the endless search for self-actualization, self-awareness might be the most common sound bite. But its popularity also stops there because in actuality- self-awareness is a difficult path and a continuous journey. That is in so far what I learned in the three decades, almost 4 in this life. TheContinue reading “Self-awareness: The path to uncovering oneself”

Discussion on Life’s inevitables

Yesterday, we attended the online Sunday Praise and Worship with the theme on MOTIVATE (ACRONYM). The topic was Intimacy (Relationship). After the service, we talked a little about life, forgiveness and surrender. My husband is not a talker and usually avoids difficult conversations on life like ambitions, passion, struggles, and specifically death. Last night, whileContinue reading “Discussion on Life’s inevitables”

Our lives changed by the pandemic

I am quickly writing this while assisting my eldest daughter Kyrzten and planning my day for work at home. She’s listening to Teacher Rose, her Civics teacher. They are talking about maps and its different kinds. Gone are the days where I drop off the kids to school in the morning and pick them upContinue reading “Our lives changed by the pandemic”

Father’s Day and what sacrifice means

Every time I read stories of people narrating how they were raised by amazing selfless dads, I can’t stop my tears from welling. I was raised by a “rockstar” father. Even at the age of 60, his heart still prefers to be with his bandmates more than his children. He did provide for us asContinue reading “Father’s Day and what sacrifice means”

The World of the Married and My Problem with Society’s Focus on Infidelity

Cheating is a very common theme in entertainment. Songs are filled with broken hearts and countless movies have made infidelity the focal point in crime or suicide. In my own country, TV ratings are perceived to be much higher when a TV Show involves cheating and more so scenes with confrontation. I never understood theContinue reading “The World of the Married and My Problem with Society’s Focus on Infidelity”

I Wanna See You BE BRAVE

Honestly, I could not explain why the line “I wanna see you be brave” keeps my tears rolling like non-stop. Then every single time it plays, I remember being young, confused and scared and no one was there to tell me “Be Brave”. I wasn’t sure if I was and if I was- going throughContinue reading “I Wanna See You BE BRAVE”

Women are expected to be everything

Just last night, a breakdown happened. It was something that has not happened in a long time for me. It’s not that I have developed a knack for keeping my mess together but being able to set them aside temporarily. I am the typical mother of the millennia- juggling work, motherhood, wife duties and allContinue reading “Women are expected to be everything”

Loneliness Strikes

“You are stronger than you think you are.” Often I respond with pride, “I know.” But the truth is, it slips through my understanding what being strong really means. Life was never unfair, and God therefore is always reasonable. He gives and so He takes. Your intentions therefore your outcome. No matter how the wordsContinue reading “Loneliness Strikes”
