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 is meant to be lived and cherish, not in spite of but by way of life's challenges and hurdles, in the end what really matters is that we hit that home run which is Heaven.

Love without limits and live like everyday is the last day of your life appreciating the beauty in little things. Yes, I loved him very much....for all eternity. Life is so brief on this earth, heaven is forever. This is not the end, it's only the beginning. I apologize for sounding anxious in this post, that's because I am; this is very much hard to accept but not impossible.

Lord, I pray that you 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. Amen <3

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 :) 


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…

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…
