New Year and the resolution to participate more in my life

I am writing this the day before 2021 officially starts its working day. I feel a bit agitated here because I have not done what I was supposed to do. My research paper’s long overdue and I couldn’t even get past few chapters on the results. My mind has not been on my side andContinue reading “New Year and the resolution to participate more in my life”

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”

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”

Filipinos, We are RESILIENT but We still deserve BETTER

June 21st when my husband’s fever started. Given that we are in a health crisis and an invisible enemy, we isolated him right away praying that it was not yet too late to do so. We have no idea whether we caught the crown (COVID-19) and living in the epicenter of the Philippines’s COVID crisisContinue reading “Filipinos, We are RESILIENT but We still deserve BETTER”

Thoughts and Opinions

I just don’t understand sometimes how people (celebrities or the likes) gets angry over reactions from people with their opinions made public on social media. We all have opinions on almost everything in life; if we do not want them criticized, we shouldn’t bother posting it online. #weareabunchofinconsistenopinionatedbeings #itcanbeplainannoying

Forgiveness

Forgive. What does it really mean? How is it really given? When does it truly set us free? I have been hearing forgiveness in almost every scripture, book, and teachings. Does forgiveness really free us from bitterness, from pain and from the shackles of the past? Is it why too many are bitter and unconsciouslyContinue reading “Forgiveness”

Why Figure Skater Michael Christian Martinez Ups My Hope for the World

While most Filipinos in the social media overly expresses their amazement over the recognition figure skater Michael Christian Martinez in the 2014 Winter Olympics garnered, some are plain happy for his success. Saying, “Yeah, of course he is Pinoy”, makes me cringe though. Why can’t we stop saying that? False patriotism is not ever flatteringContinue reading “Why Figure Skater Michael Christian Martinez Ups My Hope for the World”

The Lady and Her Shoe

I am a girl who loves so many things. One of my greatest struggle when choosing wardrobe is that I buy whatever I see that I might like. I had no clear idea of what I wanted and so I ended up buying those shoes, those bags and those dresses that I don’t love. TheyContinue reading “The Lady and Her Shoe”

A year-end Review: Dealt with Inconsistencies and Faced Inevitability

There is nothing sweeter than to be able to wake up and live life another day. Yet, days of everlasting anguish and fear seems to haunt me on these sweet days. Having to face the angst of unforgiving past and the inevitable death creeps like a nightmare on a sunny day. This year, I lostContinue reading “A year-end Review: Dealt with Inconsistencies and Faced Inevitability”

Waking up

After the long ordeal of calamities, upfront corruption and social dilemmas, me as the citizen of this country has grown tired and weary hearing of greed and injustices. Most of all, my heart has pumped too much blood for all those cries and yet most decided to be blind for reasons only they know of.Continue reading “Waking up”

The fragile world and sturdy hearts

Today marks the 2nd week since the killer quake hit our dear province of Bohol. Many lost their homes and properties, others their lives. It came to all of us a shock, I think no earthquake will come knocking the door first. It always comes sudden, unexpected and horrifying. Though our country is situated rightContinue reading “The fragile world and sturdy hearts”

7.2 Magnitude Quake hit my hometown 3 days ago

Tuesday Earthquake rerun in my mind. Still can’t sleep. I was cooking breakfast at 8 in the morning, Blyf and McAngel were still sleeping while my 2 nieces and neighbor’s kids were playing on the sofa. Bangz went outside the room to get breakfast to the kitchen when we heard a rupture 15 minutes laterContinue reading “7.2 Magnitude Quake hit my hometown 3 days ago”
