The ring that broke my heart.

As we walked across an empty land
You suddenly stopped and held my hand
You got down on your knees and smiled
But all I can see was a sad man
behind blue eyes

You held out your big hand
I saw the ring and I started crying
You put the ring on my finger
And I was just there
Standing, waiting for you to ask something
But you stood up and didn’t say anything
You hugged me tight and I knew it didn’t feel right.
Tears were falling from your eyes and I knew it meant goodbye
No words and no sound was heard

And then you said “I love you… I love you with all my heart.
I wish I can die now and rebirth
As I have loved you in the wrong time and place on earth.
And if we were born again I’ll promise to wait for you till the end.”
You looked at me like you wanted to stay
But turned your back and walked away from me

Now I feel alone and weary
I looked at the ring and I feel lonely
The ring that I thought would give me happiness
But turned into heartbreaks and sadness.
The ring that should be for better or worse till death do us part
But became a tragedy that will tear us apart

Being Grateful Despite Challenges.

In the past days, weeks and month, what are you grateful for?

There are times when we feel like we cannot be grateful about anything in our lives. Not happy with the job or company, don’t like the colleagues, the boss does not treat you right, or losing a job or bored and not happy with your life or feeling burned out can contribute to one’s negative attitude. Experiencing financial loses can hurt deeply. Enduring physical or mental health challenges can drive us to feel hopeless. Missing your family or loved one because you feel like you’re alone, or feeling guilty because you’re not a help of your family and you will start asking yourself why are these things happening to me, why me? And now you want to be alone wallowing in self-pity. Sad to say that such thinking and feeling does makes us miserable. Yes indeed and trust me I’ve been there.

Life unexpected difficulties can make us forget that there is much for which to be thankful and grateful. It makes us forget that sometimes God’s blessings are not in what he gives, but in what He takes way because He knows best and we just have to trust Him.

We often heard people say “Sometime it’s okay not to be okay.” Yes indeed it is okay. It’s okay if you want to cry, to be angry, and to feel negative emotions. It’s normal, because having emotions and feelings makes you human. But after embracing your emotion why don’t you empty your mind of all thoughts. Let your heart and mind be at peace. Make time to reflect and nourish your soul.

As I’ve discovered and realized during these pandemic and lock-down. I start asking myself, despite of what is happening right now what am I grateful for? I jot down some thoughts…

  • A roof over my head and warm home.
  • Family, friends and flat mates, colleagues, bosses and the company.
  • Good health .
  • The kindness of people.
  • Enjoying the little and simple things of my life that God has made.

The last part hit me hard because I realized there are so much things in life that’s need to be appreciated. Like every day when you wake up is already a blessings. Like I always say “di bale nang walang tulog basta maraming gising”. Every day is a new day and you will start again with your life. Every day is a new chapter and a new story of your life. You will wake up the next day and you will see your family, siblings or roommates. You will see the sunrise/sunlight. You can smell, you can feel the air. Or you face the mirror and you will see how you looks or how God created you. J All little things can make you smile. Amazing isn’t it?

So when you feel alone or sad try to make that a time to reflect on yourself and think of it more in a positive way, in God’s way. Then that loneliness can become happier.

Let me share with you some of my favorite verses whenever I feel down.

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God.” Philippians 4:6

“And if God is for us, who can be against us?” Romans 8:31

"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God,” Ephesians 2:8

 "I consider myself that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.” Romans 8:18

"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “ plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11

If you feel down and alone please talk to HIM (Our Lord Jesus Christ) because He is the only one who can answer and solve everything.

Hope this this helps. Thanks for reading. 🙂

May God bless us All.

Let your Heart Beat Again

You’re shattered

Like you’ve never been before

The life you knew

In a thousand pieces on the floor

And words fall short in times like these

When this world drives you to your knees

You think you’re never gonna get back

To the you that used to be

Beginning

Just let that word wash over you

It’s alright now

Love’s healing hands have pulled you through

So get back up, take step one

Leave the darkness, feel the sun

Cause your story’s far from over

And your journey’s just begun

Let every heartbreak

And every scar

Be a picture that reminds you

Who has carried you this far

‘Cause love sees farther than you ever could

In this moment heaven’s working

Everything for your good

So tell your heart to beat again

Close your eyes and breathe it in

Let the shadows fall away

Step into the light of grace

Yesterday’s a closing door

You don’t live there anymore

Say goodbye to where you’ve been

And tell your heart to beat again

Song by: Danny Gokey


Broken

Heartaches

Loneliness

sadness,

Worry,

anxiety

This is how you feel right now.

You want somebody to talk to

but there’s nobody around you

Now you are suffering

Because you are hurting inside.

And it’s frightening

Because you want to stop the pain.

The love you had has shattered.

And as you think you are alone

Flesh heart turns into stone.

My friend,

I am here.

I was here.

You were never alone.

You don’t have to do this on your own.

I was there…always

Just behind you

Waiting for you

to knock on my door…

With my arms wide open

Waiting for you to come in…

So I can tell your heart to beat again.

Isaiah 41:10 Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.

 

Caught in the act!

Random post 101.

Caught in the act. As they say “huli ka balbon!” 🤣🤣

Side note: Me trying to check what filter should I use on my photo as I want to add more colors on it. 😉 Some might think na GGSS ako. Truth or not so what? Feeling beautiful is a choice. I mean I just love myself.. There’s nothing wrong with that. Sino pa b pupuri sa’yo aside from your mom?E d puriin mu na sarili mu because why not? 💁🏻‍♀️ I will compliment myself first before everyone makes fun of me. Lol.🤪

TBH. There is nothing wrong on being in love with yourself. Because loving yourself is a feeling which should be felt at all times in an individual’s lifetime.

I mean ladies If you want to use filters on your photo and If that makes you happy and looks good on you then it’s okay. Like mine, I’m using filters or preset to make my photos more colorful and alive. As long as you did not totally change or wipe out your face or body (you know what I mean 🤭) then its okay. Because remember this. There is thin —— line between loving yourself and self obsession. 😉 Charot!

Being ‘Just Friends’

Why do I care so much

About what you say

If I don’t love you?

And why does it hurt so much

When I feel you don’t care?

It’s getting so complicated

Being “just friends’ was so much better

How and when did it all change?

Does it really matter what tomorrow brings?

Can’t we live life for today

Like we used to be?

No rush and no pressure

Every day we say hi and smile

And at the end of the day we just say goodbye

Every day feels like a judgement day

All the others turn their backs and walked away

How much do we have to give up

Because someone else does not agree?

When will be the two of us could just be the two of us and be free?

People say love is beautiful

But why does it scare us away?

Can we just be scared and do it anyway?
