Into the Third Tens

Kamusta? I welcomed 2021 realizing I’ll be turning 30 this year, and I’m surprisingly excited about it! ♡

What are You Grateful for?

I decided to dive into a quick Surya Namaskar as I got up. Breathing in, allowing every breath to flow through my veins; breathing out, releasing all the unwanted tension in my body. Ah, what a way to start a day. Beyond the good flex and easing, I recall this term that I’ve always incorporated with my gratifying sun salutations — Santosha, which means “contentment”.

There is Beauty in Waiting

It’s maddening, isn’t it? How everything can never fall real in the brink of our imagination – when we want it, how we want it. How tireless but slow time moves. How incapable we could be. How we have no control. But I have some good news.

Night Warrior

Speak of ways, I bear many. So good luck needing me early in the day. Just sending all my love to my fellow night warriors out there.

Detours

There’s always this uncertainty running through our veins – career, love, or even just the corporate attire most suitable for tomorrow’s presentation. We always end up overthinking and crying over crises that may or may not be even real. But here’s the thing: we don’t always have to have everything figured.

My Favorite Corpse

It’s the first day of September and I’m already junked with tons of work after a long beautiful weekend with nature. I finally grasped the chance to go out with my girlfriends and take a breather from my mind-numbing daily routines. It was a well-deserved rest from the riot week that was, and every ugly cloud of thought was definitely blown away by the fine winds at the mountains.

Why Worry?

“Where am I gonna get the budget for this?”, “What if I won’t deliver this project on schedule?”, “How am I gonna provide for my family’s needs?”, “Why does it always have to go wrong?” — questions that seem endless, just like the horizon. But also like the horizon, where the sun rises and sets gloriously, these questions all lead me to seeking and finding the only Redeemer to my strangled heart.

Here’s to my OG Lady Boo

I just wanna dedicate this day to her – to this wonderful lady who brought me and taught me life in the best way possible – may God grant all the desires of her heart, leading her and blessing her path by His truth. Happy birthday, mommy. I love you so much. ♡

Raindrops and Coffee

With a classic Westlife song in my background, warm lights and a good view of the outdoor drops, I knew I was at the right place at the right time, perfectly through the weather. I was made to stop, breathe a little more life, and take appreciation of the good things in the seam of impediment.

Dream that Dream!

WOW. I finally have a dream too vivid I’d actually wanna fast forward to this phase in my lifeline. It doesn’t matter how simple – big or small – I now have a concrete dream, and I have the love of my life to share it with. One of many. Baby steps.
