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.
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!
A stare that’s rude, daunting
Weary souls, its haunting
Blackest of blacks I’ve seen
I’d hate myself if I miss doing a Three-liner this week. Having said this, here’s my take. Hopefully, you’d enjoy reading as much as I enjoy writing a brief tale out of amazing photo prompts. This is hosted by a wonderful blogger, Sonya of Only 100 Words. Kindly join us, for details please click here.
Have a wonderful day, everyone!
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.
I have yet to find my muse this week but I still decided to force myself in writing at least. Thank God, I checked my inbox and found this ‘Weekly Writing Prompt Challenge‘ from a friend blogger, Kiwinana of Ramblings of a Writer.
Here’s my take, hopefully, you enjoy reading it. I would be delighted to read your thoughts or comments! Good Monday, everyone!
People always say that the only constant thing in this world is change. This is somewhat true. I am the kind of person who is too sentimental to throw away something or someone I once grew fond of or adored. I even told a friend that the people I’ve loved remain in my heart no matter what. Whether they left me or betrayed me, there would always be a part of them etched in my soul. Wonderful memories shared with these people would always be a beacon to a day full of hope and positive feelings.
Cheers to our ‘Weekly Quotes To Ponder‘ moment. I am so excited to share my thoughts about the quote above and to read your comments as well. Do you agree that at one point in your life you’ve gone through something or you experienced something that changed you and that no matter what you do, you can never go back to the old you?
I used to think that if someone truly loved us, their feelings won’t change, no matter what. That even infidelity, abandonment, and all other circumstances aren’t enough to ruin that kind of love. That’s how idealistic I am. I received so many hard blows to finally realize that though love never dies, people change. The person who is telling you that they love you with all his heart today may tell you the opposite in the future, who knows? Man is fickle. Emotion can change in a split second. It’s quicker than a blink of an eye that before you knew it, it changed your life forever. I think the most important thing here is, no matter what experiences we go through in this life, we must choose to be a better version of ourselves so that even if you can’t go back to who you were, you won’t regret it and it would surely put a smile on your face.
That’s it for now. Enjoy!
We bump into each other
As if we’re total strangers
When no one’s around
Even seconds we would steal
Burn with passion, love unveiled.

It’s a day late for our ‘Weekly Quotes To Ponder‘ feature. Forgive me for this. There’s a bunch of thoughts running through my head these days that I’m having difficulty to focus. So, I thought, why not try to at least de-clutter my mind? I’ve been thinking of launching a website for a while now. I even bought my own domain at GoDaddy just yesterday.
My life these past few months is in a mess. I am so sick of forcing myself out of this difficult situation that all I want to do is to vanish instantly. Go to a place where there’s no worries, pain, disappointments, and frustrations. But deep inside I know that this is beyond possible as long as I live in this world.
So what’s the best thing to do now? I asked myself a couple of times. I despise feeling so weak and helpless. And truth be told, I’d rather be the one that someone depends on than be the one who needed help. That’s actually the only pride that I have.
In the midst of it all, I came across this quote on the internet while browsing. It hit me big time. And I agreed with it. Maybe I don’t need to bite more than I could chew. Stop forcing myself to fix my life that has been broken but to start over and build something better. And here I am, starting to do the things that I believe would make me feel better and I know that in God’s time, once and for all, I will be wearing a smile again that could brighten people’s day around me and inspire them to do the same.
This is another proof that in order for us to survive in this life and be happy is to stand tall even in the most trying times. May God Almighty bless us all!
Words knows how to disguise, add color and spice
Telltale the deepest recesses of one’s heart
Yet my hands freezing, can’t make up my mind.
