Don’t Follow Your Heart; Guard It!

June 17, 2015. About 8 AM after I finished my daily quiet time and Bible meditation, I opened my planner and took out my pen. Instinctively, I began writing bullet points of the activities I planned on accomplishing that day.Β Cook lunch. Exercise. Cook dinner. Short prayer time. BLOG! Clean Mom's bathroom. And a bunch of … Continue reading Don’t Follow Your Heart; Guard It!

Take The Plunge!

The most thrilling part of my TALAMazing adventure happened exactly five weeks ago, when I went to Six Flags Magic Mountain--for the very first time! I first heard of Six Flags Magic Mountain through my childhood best friend, Deuel. He and I absolutely loved roller coasters! After he let me watch his DVD about Six … Continue reading Take The Plunge!

He’s Writing Your Story, and It Is Beautiful

Happy new year earthlings! This year, I commit to blogging more regularly. One of my mistakes last year was procrastinating and giving in to laziness. At times I really was busy and tired from finishing school requirements, but I knew deep in my heart that I could have updated my blog regularly. For that, I … Continue reading He’s Writing Your Story, and It Is Beautiful

Perfection-er

In my previous post, I talked about feeling quite depressed over my lack of inactivity and my feeling of uselessness, as I stayed home in most days. Turned out I was just bored and that I needed to change my perspective and attitude. God was preparing me for something bigger, better, and busier. Last week, … Continue reading Perfection-er

After a few minutes … Continue reading Missing Out On Life?

I’ve Got The Drive!

Ever since I was a little girl, I've always dreamt of driving my own car, or just driving a car, really. It was so cool being behind the wheel (or the manibela in Filipino), steering it whichever way you wish. That dream of becoming a non-professional driver should have been fulfilled summer last year if … Continue reading I’ve Got The Drive!

Ms. Right

On our way home tonight, my brothers and I were having a conversation. James, our youngest, out of the blue, told us he hasn't tasted or seen unleavened bread, and then he asked me why it was so flat. "Well because it doesn't have yeast, so it's flat. It doesn't rise like normal bread." Hearing … Continue reading Ms. Right

Harsh Realities

Life can be described with adjectives as many as there are Facebook and Twitter users combined. Today, I choose this one: Harsh. I know that life is not problem-free, but the fact to me is just that: a fact. Nothing more, nothing less. Sure, I experience problems growing up--self-image issues, insecurities, geometry problems, fights with … Continue reading Harsh Realities
