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. …

LIfe's a beautiful mess

This week has been quite an adventure, mostly emotionally. Where should I start? First and foremost, I'm still grieving the loss of my late boyfriend who passed away a little over than 2 months ago and second of all, this particular circumstances has ignited emotions from when my mom passed away 5 years ago. We don't know when the end of our lives will come, until it comes and then what shall we do? How do we react? It usually comes when we least expect it, and that's usually what hurts the most. I am sure if we expected death for ourselves or for our loved ones, we would more than likely not take things for granted, but unfortunately due to our frail human nature we pass up opportunities that could have not been avoided. If only I...If only I was honest. If only I hadn't made so much excuses.

Today was a great day, I love my job as a server. I love coffee. I love making other people happy. I love God. I love my family and friends. I love to dance, dance like no one…

Life, Love, & Lent

Life, a combination of twists and turns.
Love, a mix of feelings and emotions.
Lent, build on service and sacrifice.


Live Simply. Love until it hurts & Let go and let God.
It is what it is.
Everything in life happens for a purpose.


Pray without ceasing.
It's only the beginning.
Hope never dies.


Talk is cheap.
Listen and learn.


Be kind for everyone is fighting their own battle.
The battle is in the mind.
The mind is a dark alley, don't go alone.


The world is a very lonely place.
And we need each other to lean on.
But sometimes we must fight alone.


The Rosary is our weapon against evil, the Eucharist gives us strength to endure, and the sacraments give us courage.


God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.


A woman's heart is as deep as the ocean. --Rose from Titanic

On Letting Go, Part 2

Today we mourn the loss of a very dear person I will always cherish in my  heart, my best friend and soul mate, Randy. My heart is heavy with sorrow, but faith tells me that he is with all the angels and saints in heaven. Death is not the end, it's only the beginning; the beginning of a new chapter called eternal life. Dying is hard, but living is harder, these words that Randy will always be in my heart. We must hang on to that hope that our Lord promised us that comes at the end of our days, the hope that we will be risen to be with our loved ones to rejoice and be glad forever and ever.

Today at Daily Mass, the priest mentioned that this earth is only temporary, our real home is in Heaven. Many people look for happiness on this earth, not knowing it can only be found and fulfilled above. May our Heavenly Father together with our Blessed Virgin Mary grant us the gift of Fortitude to endure the trials of this life so we may one day await the glory that awaits us in Heaven.

I will …

On Letting Go, Part 1

As I write this blog, my best friend is currently going through the most difficult times one can imagine. It's hard to imagine what death or dying would be like until it's happening. One always thinks or believes they will live forever, but what does forever mean? Eternity is forever. Our souls are what give life to our mortal bodies, they are a temporary vessel that houses them while we are on this earth.

"Death is hard, but living is harder." That's something he once mentioned to me, and it's very true. Living is not easy, there's so many trials and tribulations and obstacles to overcome, but in the end what we have left is faith. Without faith, we might as well be dead spiritually.

My best friend had an unwavering faith, more than I did. He made seemed possible the impossible, not only because he would do normal everyday tasks like cutting the yard and cooking. He taught me one important lesson, well a lot of lessons actually, one is that is that life …

Life's expectations

Today I drove by a billboard with the words, "Stuff happens" Right there it hit me, stuff does happen all the time! When it does happen, we don't always react the way we should. Rather that stuff be a last minute scheduled doctor's appointment, a paper cut (the worst kind), or heaven forbid something more drastic. These little occurrences are what make us or break us, we can choose to response with agitation or trust that everything that happens, happens for a purpose. That's the sole beauty of life, we don't always know what to expect on a day to day basis, it's a journey, an adventure, a pursuit towards the common goal (or whatever you want to call it). Life happens, and when it does embrace it, remain calm and don't worry God always has a plan.

Sunday Bliss

The sky is blue,
The wind is blowing,
Church bells are ringing,
Life is good 🙏 How many times do we stop and take a look at what a blessing life is? Not often enough perhaps. Everyday is a gift, life is so precious, it's so easy to take for granted and yet everyday we are given another chance to start over. Life is so short, we have not much time to gladden the hearts of those we love, so make haste to be kind and swift to love. Happy Sunday!! 😍🙏💖

On Life and Living

It's been a long while since I've written anything on here, here it goes!! :)

I have been pondering on the fact that life is filled with setbacks, it's how we deal with those setbacks that makes all the difference. Today I received some grand advise from my confessor, something I read about two nights before from a book I'm reading, that is "To offer up those setbacks." All those things that have or will go wrong in life are a partaking in the unity of Christians all over the world who are suffering, amazing! May the Holy Spirit send forth the gift of Fortitude to carry us through and a hope that will sustain us in this life and in the next.
Prayer for the Gifts of the Holy SpiritHoly Spirit, divine Consoler, I adore You as my true God, with God the Father and God the Son. I adore You and unite myself to the adoration You receive from the angels and saints.
I give You my heart and I offer my ardent thanksgiving for all the grace which You never cease to bestow …
