Weekly Quotes To Ponder 20

A penny for my thoughts? Cheers to our 20th week of Weekly Quotes To Ponder! Here’s the time for reading and reflecting and I’ve never been this interested to share my opinion about the quote that I stumbled upon today:

I must say that in my thirty-five years of existence, I’ve experienced problems that seem almost impossible to resolve. I am always on the verge of giving up due to helplessness and lack of emotional support from the people who are supposed to give it to me – my relatives.

I used to believe that blood is thicker than water, it is not true. Reality proves that oftentimes our relatives are the first one to back fight us.

Life is tough, fate lends no one. Believe me, if you want to live your life to the fullest, you have to learn how to be strong. Some say, ‘fake it until you make it’. Being a transparent type, it is not an easy feat. I may fake a smile but when you look into my eyes, it will still show how wrecked I am inside. And at times, I experience self-doubt and worthlessness. Funny, isn’t it? Yet, life goes on. While I may feel this way, never have I lost my faith in God. His love and mercy always help me make it through every storm that comes my way. It’s what keeps my sanity, the strength that sustains me and it’s the hope that makes me believe that there’s always sunshine after the rain.

How about you? How do you deal with life’s cruelties? I would be glad if you share it with me. Happy weekdays!

 

Within Your Hands

Bare not my soul
Refuse to lose control
For years I’ve been ignored
Living in your world that’s cold

Sunrise after the rain
Touch that could ease my pain
You are to me a heaven sent
My heart not broken just bent

Always near but seems so far
Stares of hate that signals war
I’ve waited a million years
My love for you have killed my fears

While you fight to make it fake
I dream of you even when I’m awake
With just one mistake,
All my life you’d make me pay

Deprived me of love before your eyes
But when we touch you can’t deny
We’re both loss in a trance
For once, give us another chance

Tokens of Gratitude: Captured Moments

2016-02-21 16.35.30-2It  is such  a wonderful feeling to express how grateful we are for everything that’s happening in our lives. This might be late here in my place but in other parts  of  the world, it is still Saturday.

 

Thank God for giving me an opportunity to capture wonderful moments with my family especially my children. Looking back at those  memories would always be a part of my everyday life. I’m happy to share some of  them with you all!

Life is like a camera…
FOCUS on what’s important,
CAPTURE the good times,
DEVELOP from the negatives,
And if things don’t work out,
TAKE ANOTHER SHOT – quoted

In this marathon called life
We all share an unending strife
Cheating time ’til we cross the finish line

Weekly Quotes To Ponder 19

blame

All blame is a waste of time.
No matter how much fault you find with another,
and regardless of how much you blame him,
it will not change you.
The only thing blame does is to keep the focus off you
when you are looking for external reasons to explain
your unhappiness and frustration.
You may succeed in making another feel guilty
about something by blaming him, but you won’t succeed
in changing whatever it is about you
that is making you unhappy. – Dr. Wayne W. Dyer

I can’t help but feel pissed when someone point his finger on others whenever there’s bad things that’s happening with his life. I am even more pissed when someone is barking on a wrong tree. Sometimes, we tend to  forget the fact that though there are things that we cannot control in this world, God bestowed us the freedom to choose between good or evil, right or wrong, or even the way we deal with problems. Either we breakdown or we break through. With this being said, I could say that our life is 10% chance or destiny and 90% choice. Thus, in every consequences that we face, we have no one to blame but ourselves.

I would be delighted to know your thoughts about the quote above. May we all have a blessed week! Thank’s for reading!

Tokens of Gratitude: My Family

Ode of my family by Cranberries is one of my favorite songs.  Aside from its beautiful melody, its lyrics speaks of a parent-child relationship. I strongly believe in the saying, ‘No man is an island’. We cannot deny the fact that we need to interact with others and  having a family of our own makes this experience enjoyable and worthwhile. Furthermore, it is such a great feeling to know that you have something to belong to. A family who will take you just as you are, supports you all the way, and would be happy to see you succeed in life.

Today, I would like to express how grateful I am to Almighty God for giving me a wonderful and awesome family.

the people who stand by you without flinching – they are your family.

Weekly Quotes To Ponder 18

 

Have you  experienced that awkward moment when you’ve already said ‘What?’ three times and still have no idea what the other person said, then you just agreed? I have, a couple of times. Probably, I am distracted or  I wasn’t really paying attention or maybe I really can’t get his/her point and just spare a nod to get it over with. Damn, whatever the reason may be, whether we accept it or not, it is a sign of disrespect to that person.

respect

When we are saying something especially important matters, we all want others to look at us straight in the eyes, nod, or better yet, give us a feedback. We may or may not be aware of it, but we want others to respect us, our point of views, our needs and wants, as well as the things that make us happy. Giving our loved ones even a spare of our precious times in a day coupled with our undivided attention when they communicate with us is a great way to show how much we love them.

#LoIsInDaBl Day 1 – True Self Love

Just sharing one of my favorite posts. Enjoy reading!

meeh.jpg I am a very transparent person. What you see is what you get but it doesn’t mean that I cannot be mysterious.

If I am sad, mad, surprised, confused, happy, excited, you can easily see it in the expressions of my face. I am not really good at pretending how I feel at a present or certain moment. I can just burst into tears or anger or laugh at the top of my lungs. I don’t know, I just can’t help it.

Others find me easy to get along with but there are also people who don’t want me. People who doesn’t approve of the way I carry myself in front of others. But that’s fine, we cannot please every body, right?

Do not chase people.
Be you and do your
own thing and work
hard. The right
people who belong in
your life will come to
you, and stay.
