Speak to _ _ press.

For the past years of my life that I’ve been writing and publishing the crappy things I write. The things I come up with either by stroking my pen on a piece of paper or tapping the letters on my laptop. Words not from my mind but from my heart. Probably one of the most perfect reason why I tend to make mistakes with the grammar or spelling.

It’s much easier to be yourself and say whatever your thoughts are than pretending you know everything under the sun.

I care less of what people think of what I say.
I care less of the things people may think about me because of what I say.
I speak to express and not to impress.

worth anything

Ever wonder why we often times spend the whole day wishing for so many things? Asking ourselves why we don’t have those certain things that we, made ourselves that they are part of our needs?

OVER THINKING…  ??

Over thinking about all those make us forget what we already have. Material aspects, they might be gone the next day but being contented within spiritually and emotionally, irreplaceable and of much more value than anything. I mean anything.

Let GO. Let GOD.1453

All of us go through a lot of storms in life without us knowing how it happened nor when will it come or go. Just as long as you know who to hold on to, and believe in yourself you’d survive everything.

 

As what I have learned today,

“it’s a lie to think that you’re not good enough. It’s a lie

to think that you’re not worth anything.” -NickVujicic

Bottom line.

GOD MADE YOU AS YOU ARE BECAUSE YOUR EXISTENCE HAS A UNIQUE PURPOSE IN ALL OF HIS CREATION.

TO THE HEART THAT LOVED MORE THAN HERSELF

“REST IN PEACE TO THE HEART THAT LOVED MORE THAN HERSELF”

I’ve learned not much but I can say enough about relationship than i was in .
First of all, partners are called partners because they can and should stand up for each other, if one gets weak it’s the other person who should be pulling the other up… (what do you even think the phrase, “I’ll be there for you through all ups and downs” for?)

I don’t even think it’s that necessary to say anymore that partners should NEVER, I repeat, NEVER let the other person lose his or her SELF-RESPECT.

No one has the right to tell you this, “Magtira ka sa sarili mo”. (Leave some for yourself) why? because no one knows exactly how long you can last or what more can you give. it is only you together with your heart that can tell you to stop giving too much.

No one can ever say that you’re not growing in the relationship, why? because growing doesn’t mean you can never have a fight over the simple things you encounter. remember, growing doesn’t mean you can never me childish sometime or for a certain moment in a relationship. a typical example is a young lady still having craves for colored jelly beans as she does when she was a child. she’s grown up yet she misses having some jelly beans. growing up doesn’t mean leaving everything behind.

lastly for this post but not on my learning, NO ONE CAN PUSH YOU TO GET TIRED. cause LOVING a person much more than loving yourself is just like loving yourself more and more because you are taking care of that person you love and makes you cry but smile.

let us not forget, Jesus gave up His life fofr the sake of hHis brothers and sisters, yet, he is happy knowing He saved them all from harm. it hurts to be nailed on the cross yet in heart He was happy.

GIVING VALUE TO THE PERSON YOU LOVE UP TO THE EXTENT OF YOUR HEART’S CAPABILITY MAY SOMETIMES BE PAINFUL BUT GIVES BACK A PRICELESS SMILE IN HEART AND LAUGHTER IN THY LIPS.

LIFE is naturally FUN. WE just sometimes put ourselves in agony by not ENJOYING IT.

Having fun in LIFE would leave people happy memories being with me. Enjoy life no matter how hard things can be. They may or may not break you but surely at the end it’ll build a better you. Smile like nothing is bothering you have faith and you’ll get through it all.

Live a Good Life

would you rather lose something you already have or something you will have?

 it’s called “choice”.

which needs the right “REASON”,

and definitely does not require nor need “REGRETS”. 

Sometimes in life, what gives us all stress is the mere fact that we bother doing everything to get everything.

Makes us all forget the things we really need and what we really have

The key to “CONTENTMENT” is not gaining so much in excess of what we need.

The key is seeing the value of what we already have and making them enough for your journey to happiness. 

At the end of the day, all our wants should be set aside and soon be forgotten, not because we gave up on trying to have the “wants” but because we found both “CONTENTMENT” and “HAPPINESS” in embracing God’s gift.

it’s called “SIMPLE LIFE”

 What you’ve all just read is a very short blog post I had back in 2011 of which, the said blog was already deleted (at least that’s what I think) 

Anyhow, I’ve come to write that down out of nowhere, only with the thought and hope that I would come to live a very simple yet contented life. 

I haven’t proven that one until I’ve read Mr Bo Sanchez ‘s book (Simplify & Live a Good Life).20130604_155627

Yes I’am young, (I still believe that I am at the age of 24) and I can say this is probably the age where you’d want to have everything that you can buy in the world especially on pay days. I don’t intend to keep my hands clean at this matter but I honestly think I am not one of those people at my age or so. 

As Bo Sanchez mentioned at the book Live less & Delight in it more.

I currently live and work outside my home country but that doesn’t mean I desire for more luxurious life. It was my own choice and decision to leave my family and friends behind in my homeland because I knew within myself that there are so much more I can learn. Frankly, never was there any moment that I regret that choice I have made. I was basically the main source of headache of my parents, which I know I shouldn’t be saying but I am saying it anyway because I know that whatever I did back then that gave my parents headaches, I have come to prove myself by now. That I can stand up for my own decisions but most of all, that I can decide responsibly on and for my own life. 

I believe that if in my soul I deeply respect & value myself, people around me will sense that. They too will value & respect me-whether I’m wearing an Armani or not.

I honestly wasn’t able to say anything but to smile upon reading this one. Yes I dream about having branded bags and clothes. Yes I can afford them. But I haven’t tried purchasing any clothing or dress that would probably exceed to AED 40/= per pc. I haven’t tried and I don’t see the point in trying. 

I enjoy wearing the same stuff over and over. I enjoy wearing the rejected items from those clothes I used to sell house-to-house as an extra income. Though my mom once stopped me from doing so and she was saying that it wasn’t really necessary because what I was earning was good enough. But I knew somewhere down the line I had to do something to have extra income, because I knew what I had to learn. 

After all, I am more than the brand of my watch, logo of my shoes or the name of my car. (Simplfy) oh by the way, yes I have not-so-recently purchased a car out of what I am earning as of now but I am very proud to say that I bought a second-hand 2006 Peugeot and had ran for a massive amount of mileage already. I am happily driving it despite the fact that I have the choice to buy a brand new one and monthly pay for it for 5 years. But then that monthly amount which I’d rather send to my bank account in the Philippines would definitely save me a fortune already. At least I saw my family happy that I managed to buy a vehicle of my own without knocking down their own pockets. I thank God for that moment. 

Satisfaction is not getting what you want but wanting what you already have.

Need I say more?

Seriously at my age, I’ve learned a lot from this book exactly what I should know by now. In life, responsibility and choices. I am fortunate that I was raised by my family as I am. I never tried, not for once, to be someone I was not and that’s keeping  me simply contented with my life and what I have. 

If you think you still need a lot to know about saving up, or spending or whatever it is in life. If you think you deserve more in life, or you have a lot in life. I’m telling you this book is for you.

 

TRUMP; NEVER GIVE UP

COACH TRUMP: Make it happen in your life. 

One line I will never fail to remember every single day. From that very moment I was able to glance at each word that makes of it.

So simple yet overflowing of hope that someday, I will get to that certain point of my existence that I can make my family proud.

I was never a book reader so definitely I cannot call myself a bookworm as they call it.

In fact I can still remember during my grade school days wherein we were required to do book reviews for one of our class and we had to do tons of them for the whole academic year. We’ll I’m not encouraging anyone who will be able to read this and is going through the same requirement. But never, even once was I able to finish one whole book for any of my book reviews back then. (My apologies to my English Prof back grade school)

But this book had mark that end of me not reading any books.

This is Donald J Trump.

This book here is definitely something that did not only open my eyes to reading. But filled me with hopes and encouragement in my life as a whole.

I was able to relate everything that he said on this book not only because I was also engaged in a real estate industry but because he made every point so clear on general terms.

Believe me, If only I have the capacity to memorize the whole book i really would. Because it teaches what happened, what’s happening, and what may happen again. Not only to his own life but to everybody. Let me share to you some of it.

RECOGNIZE OPPORTUNITY ; even at the most awful circumstance of a day.

Think BIG ; Think CREATIVELY

At the very end here’s the TOP 10 great points according to him on which I will never protest nor disagree.

  1. Never give up; Don’t just settle in remaining within your comfort zone
  2. be passionate
  3. be focused ; shut out all the interference
  4. Keep your momentum ; LISTEN, APPLY & MOVE FORWARD
  5. see yourself VICTORIOUS
  6. be tenacious
  7. be LUCKY; the harder you work the LUCKIER you get
  8. Believe in yourself
  9. ask yourself; what am I pretending not to see?
  10. look at the SOLUTION; not the PROBLEM

I don’t want to pretend like I’m the Miss Know-all girl. Cause I’m not.

Especially with the guy responsible of this book but perhaps in any case this would be the exact same book you’d need to get all the encouragement possible.

Especially to a young person like me who is just starting to be exposed to everything there is in the real world.

I hope you’d have the same fun learning from this one. 🙂

 

BTW few more thoughts from the book.

PROBLEMS ARE OPPORTUNITIES IN DISGUISE

YOU CANNOT SOLVE A PROBLEM WITH THE SAME THINKING THAT MADE IT.

 

 

Realized in one fine weekend

20130524_071054 copyit was a beyond “FINE” weekend.

It gave me enough relaxation to get myself back together before a new challenging week at work. A weekend packed with realizations.

 

Life away from home is being away from your real comfort zone. I choose where I am right now not because I wanted freedom.

I have chosen to be where I am right now because it is where I know for myself that I will enable myself to learn things in a new perspective.

I have learned so much at home living with my family, but I knew there are a lot more things I needed to learn. I knew I had to learn them all on my own.

My parents had taught me since I was a child how to respect people how to be nice to people.

But how much was I able to learn about trying to get along with people from different parts of the world, people from all sorts of orientation. but outside my comfort zone, I am practicing this and learning more of how to deal with people.

My parents taught me how to keep things at right place. Yet how much of an organized person have I become? Living alone made me learn and adopt how to organize my schedule, my life, though I have mastered the art of disorganizing my things somehow I am in the process of mastering the art of organizing them as well.

Though I was also taught how to cook or clean the house, do my laundry or iron my clothes, do the groceries or budget the amount of money I have.

Being away from home enabled me to learn more than what I was taught and practice each learning I have in life.

just the right wave of friendship

just the right wave of friendship
Taken at Royal Breeze, Al Hamra Village, Ras Al Khaimah, UAE

A day to relax is a day bound to be share with one of a few good friends in life. A day of laughter is a day to replace a dozen of frowning, tears and downfalls from the past.

A million people can walk out on us. but only a few can stay till we get up once again from our fall.

For all the times when love seemed to

For all the times when love seemed to be nothing else but unfair, hold on. For in the long run, there will always be something worth holding on. 

Unseen at the moment but perhaps someday. One day. Soon.

Cry out all the pain, heartaches and all the wounds. Shout out all the anger and let it be only until there. 

At the end of the day, never forgive. Regardless of how unfair all things were once or a few times more. For the healing of a wounded heart is always one forgiveness away. 

Thank you Nick


It’s a lie to think you’re not good enough… it’s a lie to think that you’re not worth aything… (Nick Vujicic)

One of the few inspiring things I have ever encountered in my life.

So simple yet so powerful. Words from a man I have never met, yet moved a lot in my life.

See, I was never the smartest person in our class back in my school days. Though, YES, i did try everything that I can just to learn the things I know I needed to learn. I was never, even for once, a top scorer to any of our exams at school. Though YES, I did try my very best to answer them all correctly and carefully. I was never the most active person in our class during recitation although I undeniably talk a lot. I mean A LOT.

I was never the best at anything in this world. Definitely not in school, or sports, or any subjects I took.

But then again, they’re all proofs of learning and trying. I have more than once in my life accepted the fact that I wasn’t good at anything. Only after listening to Mr Nick Vujicic was I able to stop that unlawful belief about myself. Then started a new belief, that someday I will be able to do anything I want in my life, may I be good at it or not won’t matter anymore. Just as long as I let myself cease that moments where I will undeniably learn, fulfill and claim that I am living my life to the fullest.

Thank you Mr Nick.
