What is it abou…

What is it about the moment you fall in love? How can such small measure of time contain such enormity?
I suddenly realize why people believe in deja vu, why people believe they’ve lived past lives, because there is no way the years I’ve spent on this earth could possibly encapsulate what I’m feeling.
The moment you fall in love feels like it has centuries behind it, generations — all of them rearranging themselves so that this precise, remarkable intersection could happen.

An excerpt from Every Day by David Levithan


Daddy’s Girl.

Daddy's Girl.

I really really really miss my Dad sooooo much. I still hadn’t visited him this month and I’m feeling so sad. I pray for him every day, every night, hoping that he’s okay.

I remember the day when I asked him if I could go live with my Mom because we both know it would be for the better. Even though I would miss him, even though I won’t be there by his side, we both know that this would happen sooner or later. I couldn’t look at him. “Pa, uuwi na ko kay Mama. Di ko na kaya dito eh,” with those words, tears started streaming down my face. At the corner of my eye, I saw him crying too. I’ll never forget how painful that was, the sight of him crying just makes me want to beat myself. After a while his crying ceased and he gave me a weak smile. One smile I would never forget. It served as an encouragement to me, a will to live. I believe that my Dad is a living testament of God’s goodness. I am thankful that my Dad is still alive after battling almost 3 years of ceisures at the early years of his stroke. It’s been almost 8 years since the attack happened, and ever since my Dad couldn’t feel the right part of his body. Living with him since, I saw him struggle, fight, and live another day. I admire my Dad because he never gave up. I really love my Dad.

He is my inspiration.



In my past entries, I always talked about positive-thinking, love, personal life, etc. But now, I want to discuss with you a topic that many of us take for granted really.


It could be the littlest of things, really.


Before, I felt like there was a hole inside of me. I felt incomplete. Now don’t get me wrong okay, I’m not good in preaching stuff but I just want to say that God filled that void in me. I’m grateful that I realized it soon enough, that He is there. He was with me all along and for that I am grateful.

Honestly, I was afraid of life.Β  I hated how broken my family was. I hated how I am not beautiful enough.I hated my life. I hated how I can’t afford this. My heart was full of hatred then. Then one day, out of confusion and desperation, I finally had the urge to talk to God.

“God, I need You.”

It was during my 2nd year in high school that I was able to know God more in a personal level. Before my perspective was that, I only pray to Him when I need something. But now, God is like a best friend to me. Someone Whom I can talk to about anything, my dreams, my goals, even my problems and insecurities, I lift it all up to Him. After that day, everything changed. I still experience difficulties in my life until now, but I decided to look beyond these things because I know God will always be there for me. I trust Him that this is His plan, and all I could do is surrender and just live life according to His word. Brothers and sisters, that made me the grateful being I am today. I was able to see that goodness of life that He has prepared for me. Just being able to wake up for another day, breath, eat, meet awesome people, laugh, see the sunshine, feel the air, everything. It is all a blessing for me.

That is why my friends, let us practice gratefulness. πŸ™‚ I hope you learn for my experience. Try to know God even more if you don’t know Him yet. I’m sure it will be worth it. πŸ˜‰
