Bully Awareness

It is a sad tragedy when we let the negative thoughts about others eat us up inside. Death is hard, but living is harder. Bullies are not aware they are bullying, they do it because they want attention. In reality, their victims are the ones that suffer tremondously until they make the decision to walk away unknowingly. A bully will always be a bully until they realize that they have a problem and are willing to face the consequences of their behavior. It's especially worst when its a family member doing the bullying to another family member, people get tired and in most cases violence occurs if left unattended. Relationships suffer and hearts get broken, but one thing for sure a bully only cares about how others see them, not how they treat others. Respect is absent and the only plausible solution is to walk away to prevent further damage and protect oneself because in the end our lives matter.

On Life and Relationships

"You aren't ready for a relationship?" "How can you be ready for a relationship?" "Are you really ready for a relationship?"  These are questions that the world throws at us, but when it comes to the heart to heart moment, but what do we do? 99.9% of the time we run from it. 
Why? Because we are scared.  Scared of what? Scared of the Unknown. 
We are creatures of habit and always want to know what comes next, which is pretty much the reason why we set timers and create to-do list to fill our days. 
What's the point of all this?  Are we trying to live our lives or empty our minds? Life is full of chaos, why add anymore junk we don't need! The world wants us to think we don't have time for this or that, but the truth we do, We have all the time in the world; hence the days are long, the years are short. The question lies in how will we make the most of the time we are given? 
Now back to the question at the beginning, of course nobody is rea…

Letter to my Teenage Self

Lyrics by MercyMe
You are holy
You are righteous
You are one of the redeemed
Set apart a brand new heart
You are free indeed. Dear Younger Me, First, I want to start with saying good job in accomplishing so much in your studies and life in general. The mistakes I made have made me into the individual I am today. What I would tell my younger self would be to be more obedient towards my parents and set a better example for my sister. She looks up to you and more often than not, she's watching your every move. Also, when it comes to school, try to balance life and make time with those you love, friends and family. As a teenager, the importance of cultivating lasting lifelong  friendships makes life more enjoyable, and less lonely. Be socialable, get involved, learn new things, always be grateful no matter what because an attitude of gratitde goes a long way. At last, most importantly remember you are a child of God and respect yourself and others. Listen to undestand, instead of listening…

Crossroads

Entering into the crossroads of life can feel like a ton of bricks falling on top of us, it's overwhelming at first but in time, we learn to realize the importance of what is being taught. A good friend recently told me, there is no such thing as missed opportunities, just lessons to be learned. We, being creatures of habit, cringe when things suddenly change, but change is a very good thing. The more things change, the more they stay the same. Honestly, without change, life would be boring. As the clock ticks at every second, so we move from one place to another in our thoughts, our words, our actions except when we are sleeping. Life is filled with a ton of surprises, the question is not in rather we open our eyes to see them but in opening our hearts to accept what each moment brings; the good, the bad, and the ugly. It's easier said then done, but live each moment like it's your last. Be present everywhere you go and don't forget to smile! Lots of Love!! <3 :) 


Just breathe...

Today was my day off from work....
To start off with, it wasn't much of a day off but I am blessed to have gotten household chores done like laundry and the like...
Time flies when you're having fun...or so the saying goes. Life moves rather quickly, sometimes it's good to just stop and breathe; giving thanks for another day, another moment to cherish. Each moment is sacred, no matter what... Time is like a passing shadow that envelops us from head to toe, it comes and goes like a shooting arrow. At times, when my boyfriend and I would spend time together, he showed me the most important part of just being....that's breathing. When emotions want to take over, we're feeling overwhelmed from the day's labor: Remember to breathe. It's in the breathing we learn to let go and let God. Live one moment at a time, the present moment.



Enough said. ^_^

Life's a Dance

As I write this blog, I've been feeling really tired...from work and in general keeping up with life. That 4 letter word, Life. What is Life?

My late boyfriend was a batman/superman fan, (part of the reason why I would like to watch the movie but that's besides the point). My new obsession is Pinterest, I've been searching images and random quotes on batman and superman; and here are the top ones that were inspiring:



Very true, if we never learn how to face our fears, we'll always be defeated and we won't know how strong we really are. Failure is not an option, it's going to happen but it's through those failures we learn about Life:
Don't give up!! Live life to the fullest! Be courageous! All those who have gone before us have taught us one important lesson, and that's not to fear, have faith that all things will work for those who Love. It's easier said than done, but nothing is impossible. We learn as we grow!


It's also important to rememb…

Don't Cry Over Spilt Milk

Life is weird...
Every minute counts...
I work as a server at a local restaurant in my home town and there's regular people who go fairly often. It's interesting to note that each one holds a different kind of story, everyone is unique. While cleaning tables, I'll go into a daze and my mind wonders, rather it be because of a song that comes on the radio or just think about pass time memories from my childhood.

It's been 5 years and some since my mom passed away, and today I saw a mom and her daughter having lunch together. It made me think of my mom, how she would always want the best for us and even though now at times I took her for granted. If only...thoughts play in my mind.

Another occasion, the #29 had been showing up quite often....The number represents something meaningful to me that I will forever cherish in my heart. As I was going to leave the drinks at a particular table where #29 was, there was nobody sitting there, only to realize later there were 3 drinks. …
