Weekly Quotes To Ponder 45

QUotra

Time for our ‘Weekly Quotes To Ponder‘ I’m so glad I now have time to write despite my busy schedule. Being a single mother and a home-based Appointment Setter is not that easy. Time management is a challenge, so multi-tasking skills come in handy.

The quote above is a spot on. I believe, most men would agree that women are difficult creatures to understand let alone deal with. Our name tag, as a woman, is the word contradiction. Therefore it takes a lot of patience, love, determination, and strong will to fully grasp our whole being. But don’t get me wrong here, gentlemen, I am not trying to discourage you or create a negative impression, I am just sharing something that you could ponder and use to your advantage if you really wanted to pursue the woman of your dreams.

I am not going crazy. I AM CRAZY. I just turn normal from time to time.

I adore deep thinkers.
Mixed emotions, twisted mind
A treasure and a pleasure
The mystery it unravels as I ponder
Truly, human psyche is worth exploring.

 

It’s been several months now since I last joined a Weekly Blogging Event. I more than miss doing these things and I am so glad I was able to write TANKA poetry today. This event is hosted by a friend-blogger, KIWINANA of RAMBLINGS OF A WRITER.

Weekly Quotes To Ponder 44

smart

 

Not so long ago, I’ve written a post where I confessed that I dreaded change. Being a simple-minded kind of person, dealing with a complicated world is more than I can handle. I am just grateful that with God’s grace and mercy, I am still able to hold on to my sanity in the midst of this crazy and cruel world we live in and is able to look judgmental people straight in the eye fighting back the urge to retaliate and turn them into ashes with my wrath (I must say that I have a very low tolerance for insult and mockery, and I can easily tell if a person is doing just that with the way they stare at me.) Most people say eyes are the window to the soul.

I strongly believe that I am who I am no matter what. That seasons may shift and change in the course of my lifetime but the very essence of me will still remain. I have this notion that circumstances don’t completely change a person, it just reveals their hidden personalities that they don’t know exists. That no matter how hard you try to mask your dark side it will still show any moment it is triggered. Having realized this fact, I chose to be myself. Refrain from doing things I don’t want and I am not comfortable in doing for the sake of society’s approval.

How about you? What is your take on this quote? I’d be delighted to read your comment. Have a wonderful week to us all.

“Fall in love with the person who enjoys your madness. Not an idiot who forces you to be normal.”

 

3Line Tales 46: Lovestruck

 

They said I hit a wrong chord
Defied reasons, crossed the unknown
Our future, vivid, in others, blurred

My Monthly Memories: November 2K17

mmm1

Hi, there! It took me almost two weeks after November to write and partake in this blogging event called, #mymonthlymemories hosted by a gorgeous blogger, Basant She. I’ve been doing this every month post for almost about two years now and I always find pleasure. You may want to visit her wonderful blog entitled, The Socially Anxious Extrovert.

 

memo

I love those random memories that make me smile, no matter what’s going on in my life right now.

 

Enough with the introduction. With a lot of things going on in my life this year, I find myself doing things that I don’t usually do. I’m afraid, November is one of those months that I failed to write a post other than a monthly memory. Being a Freelancer or a work from home mother is not really an easy profession. It takes a lot of willpower, hard work, and dedication to succeed. I must admit, I’m not even halfway there but I’m learning and I feel good about it. There were days, I hit my keyboard, letting words flow freely then I would suddenly stop then lost it. I even thought one time, what’s wrong with me? Do I really lose my muse? Where and how can I find it?

Last month, I decided to go back to one of my hobbies – reading suspense thriller and investigative books. Lawrence Sanders, Scott Turow, and John Lescroart are my favorite legal thriller novelists. I’ve recently read The Fourth Deadly Sin, The 13th Juror, Presumed Innocent, Cruel Justice, and Lifeguard. I finished them all in a week. It’s nice to go back to old habits.

Last month of the year is finally here. I am positive that things will fall into place bit by bit. Here’s hoping for better days and more blogging time this month of December. Enjoy life!

 

 

My Monthly Memories: October 2K17

How time flies. It’s been about three days now since October had ended. So here I am, writing #mymonthlymemories. This is in response to a blogging event hosted by a pretty blogger, Basant She of The Socially Anxious Extrovert. For detailed instructions, kindly click here. I will be delighted to read your post.

I love those random memories that make me smile, no matter what’s going on in my life right now.

 

Truth be told, the month of October is another tough month. Feeding five mouths with a limited income are but a pain. Not to mention the pile of bills waiting to be paid. It is more than a challenge to maintain composure in the midst of a financial crisis. Holding on to my resolve is really draining my energy. Welcome back, sleeplessness. I thought I will be able to beat you in no time. On a positive note, I was able to post articles and partake with blogging events like Three Line Tales, Weekly Writing Prompts, and Daily Prompts.

Others may find it odd, but I am still grateful to God for everything. These series of unfortunate events is but a part of life. I have no other choice but to face it head-on.  My faith that the best is yet to come is still greater than all of the difficulties and my heartbreaks combined. With this being said, I would like to share this song to all of you, hoping that you will find relief with the burdens you carry and your faith renewed.

 

I am learning to be kind to myself these days. I am now taking single-parenthood one step at a time. Patience is still not my thing and I doubt that it will be in the future but at least I am learning to calibrate it with my stubbornness. I have yet to find a long-term full-time job, I may be running out of time but I have put my trust in God, He knows exactly what I need. I can’t thank Him enough for all His loving-kindness. My children are healthy and I am still able to feed them.

Any help that I could get from relatives, friends and even strangers are much appreciated. I find myself thinking about this for several days and even nights and personally, I never thought I’d be this desperate. I have included a link to my most recent resume here, maybe you can recommend me if ever you stumbled upon a post for a home-based full-time job. May God bless us all.

A stare that’s rude, daunting
Weary souls, its haunting
Blackest of blacks I’ve seen

Weekly Writing Prompt: Fragment

Broken promises, shattered dreams
Heart and mind torn into pieces
Fragments of our shared memories
Cracks all around, everything’s in a mess
Through it all, I shine the brightest.
