Loving yourself doesn’t mean putting yourself first before anything else. It doesn’t mean to be selfish but rather allowing yourself to do things that you love without compromising others. It’s not about taking selfie but rather enjoying things beyond yourself. Sometimes, it is simply as singing your fave song, eating your fave food, listening to your fave love song and even drawing some stuff even if you’re not good at it. Sometimes, loving yourself is just picking some crayon that will make your life colorful and more beautiful.
Don’t forget it, Love yourself! =)
Let me start with this. It’s my birthday.
Oh yes, It was my birthday last year (October 8, 2014) when a friend of mine and I had a conversation that ends up to a quarrel. I wouldn’t elaborate it furthermore, but what I think, personally, the reason why we quarrel is just because of misunderstanding. She has her point and I have mine, we’re like arrow who’s really trying to strike each other with our own words. Sadly, what I hate about it is that we can’t hear each other side, I mean, I don’t hate my friend, I just hate the situation and can’t accept the fact that we didn’t understand what we’re really talking about. It’s actually about schedule (that hectic schedule). So because I can’t take the situation anymore, I walked out (from the school) and go on my way home. Then it take a lot of hours to realize how immature I am. And yes, it takes time to admit that I let pride arouse rather than love. And then a familiar bible verse pop-up in my mind, Continue reading
My mother’s name is Rebecca but everyone used to call her Vicky. Well, I’ve used to call her Mama. LOL. She’s turning 48 this coming July 1, 2015. She’s a jolly mom of tres marias, a young grandma of two and of course a loving housewife to her husband(Papa). She’s fun to be with yet emotional. Easy to laugh yet easy to cry. Easy to receive yet much more easy to give. That’s how unique she is, the one who is able to sacrifice all what she have just for her loved ones, just for us.
She’s my Buddy, my first ever Best friend! She became my best friend since grade school, my personal assistant until high school. My loyal supporter up until college. I can still remember those days that she really wake up so early just to prepare my breakfast, she would boil water so that I can take a bath with warm water, and she’s very patient to wake me up for so many times until I found myself sitting on a chair and everything’s already prepared. She still even helps me to wear my school uniform even though I’m already able to do it alone; I used to be dependent on her.
“There’s a lot of things to complain, a lot of things to struggle, a lot of burden to carry, a lot of situations to handle and even a lot of people and relationships that need some attention.”
Before my October had started, I already told myself that I’m going to make this month awesome since it is my birth month and indeed a very special month for me. I told myself that I won’t allow anything to mess up those coming days and somehow i’m still thinking how I can really make my October awesome?
My birthday came and indeed it was one of the best birthday I ever had yet. My friends surprised me with a basket of chocolates (which I really love!) and a compilation of greetings/messages from random (I mean friends) people and what made that day special is when I celebrated it together with my family. That’s more than enough. Well, I thought that’s the beginning of my awesome days but it seems everything turns 360. Final exams are out, feasibility studies defense are coming, a lot of requirements are still to be done, sleepless nights are already part of the cycle. My mind still shouting to finish it well but it seems that my body wants to gave up already. A lot of things were being compromised, patience becoming shorter, time for my family, time for my self and even my personal time with God are being set aside. And yes i’m still on half way but I already messed up. In a twinkle of an eye, the heaven pop-up in my mind, the place where there’s no more weeping, no more suffering, no more hurt and pain, no more burden to carry. How I wish to go there right now. I can’t stop but to let my tears to fall down, I can’t take this anymore. I really need God. I need to talk to God. Continue reading
Today is a holiday, yes because it’s a national heroes day(Oh well at least herein the Philippines!). For some, this is a time for a rest, as in literally lying on their bed and count for 24 hrs. of sleep. For others, it may also be the time to bond with their family, friends and even with the strangers; and maybe there’s also type of people whom for they, today is just a normal day, it doesn’t matter and they don’t even care if it’s a holiday or not, it’s not a big deal. So what am i really trying to say?
It’s already in the evening and I just asked myself, why today is a holiday? I mean, what’s the purpose of National heroes day when it seems that those heroes are already dead and whatever celebration we held for them, they will never appreciate it anymore ’cause hello they are already dead, or else they will raise from the dead like a zombie in the movies just tell to us,”thanks for celebrating for us!” (Just kidding!)

Do you love running, or should I say do you like running? Are you running at all? If yes, may I ask you, what are you running for?
I like running, I like playing running with other kids when I was a child, being ahead to them make me feels good, being on top of the race makes me feel better. But you know what, I don’t love running at all, it’s just I run because I want to compete with somebody. When i won, i feel great, when i lose, it’s okay, whether i win or lose, it doesn’t matter at all. Growing up, I still see running as an act of exerting effort to release my body fats, just for the sake of my body to be fit. Running as an act of escaping from something or from someone else. Running as an act of just passing by and cutting the finish line. I run but I don’t have the passion on it… until I’ve realized that I have something to run for where I need passion just to finish it well… the so-called L-I-F-E. Continue reading
When you are in doubt, when you are so confuse, when you are still wondering, and when it seems finding the right question is really hard to find… Just go on to the word of God and take a look on 1 Corinthians 13:4. Love is patient, nothing more, nothing else, period.
Don’t find for true love, wait for it. Wait for the right time, for the right person and while waiting prepare to be the right one. Wait for God’s perfect time. Stay in love with God. ♥
