Weekly Quotes To Ponder 53


I could still remember that time when I posted a quote here in my blog about SILENCE. I strongly believe that silence is the most powerful scream and these days, it is killing me softly – in my personal life and even at work. I always encounter people who’d rather stay muted than to speak their minds to me. I am a confrontational type of person, so I believe. Silent treatment or neglect is like a knife twisting inside my whole being and the pain is unbearable, I could hardly breathe. I’d rather have you tell me bad things straight on my face than hearing it from someone else or notice some changes with your treatment without having any idea at all. I really hate it when I am left hanging on when I am very much involved and someone refused to keep me in the loop. I am perceptive, alright. But I don’t want to assume. I always give people the benefit of the doubt. I am always open to the idea that maybe I misunderstood the gestures of others. Besides, it is really hard to read people’s minds let alone figure out what and how they feel inside.

Communication is a two-way street. And while I don’t underestimate the power of body language I’d be more convinced if someone will be honest enough to tell me the real score straight on my face. The truth is definitely a two-edged sword but I’d rather be hurt by it than be happy with a lie. At the end of the day, the truth will be revealed, so why should prolong the agony?

How about you? How do you confront the truth? Are you the type that ignores it and let it be? I’d be glad to read your comments.





















My Monthly Memories: April 2019


Cheers to another month gone by. There’s a lot going on in my life these days that I am having a hard time to find my muse. And heck, I don’t want to write for the sake of writing. I knew myself well enough to say that I will probably end up with a sub-standard piece should I force myself to post just like that.

It’s more than four days now after April. I must say that this was the toughest month so far this year. I’ve lost my two work from home jobs simultaneously. And yet, I am still grateful to God because He never fails to rescue us. As soon as the father of my children learned about what happened, he didn’t think twice to lend a helping hand. I may be upset, devastated, maybe? But I have learned to hold tight, keep the faith, and look forward positively. I cannot stop the storm, might as well wait patiently, enjoy its sound, find calmness in the midst of its cruelty. At the end of the day, it is just a matter of survival, these awful things shall pass, until then, I need to hold firm with my resolve.


I post #mymonthlymemories regularly in response to a monthly blogging event hosted by a wonderful blogger, Basant She of The Socially Anxious Extrovert. I always find delight in making notes of what transpired the previous month. Nostalgia is really an essential part of my daily life. You may want to partake and share your own monthly memories post, kindly click here for instructions. I can’t wait to read yours.

Going back, I have yet to write a post on my blog this month. I’ve attempted to write Weekly Quotes To Ponder post several days ago but unable to finish it. This is supposed to be a weekly article here, scheduled every Wednesday. I even missed the other weekly blogging exercises that I took part in before such as Three Line Tales, Tanka Poetry, A to Z Challenge namely. Too much for a halt. But I am positive that I can always strike back. Comebacks are always better than setbacks, right?

I just got a new work from home job last week and since it is just 4 hours a day, five days a week work, my hands are not that full. I can now do other things on the side. I even had enough time to deal with other hobbies that I cannot do when I am working full-time. What excites me the most is, I would have time to pursue one of my dreams – having an organic garden. I can’t stop myself from smiling as of this writing. Truly, life is what you make it. I refuse to deal with failures in a negative way. Besides, giving up is not an option for me.

I look forward to a better month and hopefully, this post brings you good vibes especially in the midst of difficulties. Cheers!
