Just an update:)

Hello to all and hello 2022! I hope everyone is going well and kicking! Glory to God for his blessings despite all that happened.

2021 has been one hell of ride. I’ve been stressed for the past six months, mentally and physically. I took a test even I know myself I wasn’t ready yet as I thought I was rushed by my rep and I know it was my fault and I have nothing to complain about. (sigh) I been rushing things, doing things without thinking and overthink things sometimes that I made it complicated. Pretending to be okay and happy even if I was not but praise God despite of everything had happened I consider myself blessed.❣

Too many plans but nothing went as planned, I mean I’m just over reacting one quarter of it didn’t go well, but it’s okay I can still do that and resume it this year 😀 and God willing ✈! We still have a lot of days, weeks and months to come so let us all look forward to it and be better. As well as might remind myself to do well, to take care of myself and to fill my heart with faith, love & hope as I been telling to others. ❤

Moving forward, I hope 2022 will bring new happiness, new goals, new achievements, and many new inspirations to everyone’s life. God bless!

Cheers to all and more writingssss to come. 😉

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6 NIV

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!
