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!
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!
Hello, wonderful people in blog-o-sphere! It’s been awhile since I’ve written a ‘Weekly Quotes To Ponder‘ post. For the benefit of those who just visited or stumbled upon this blog, I would like to say that this is supposed to be an every Wednesday feature. However, due to circumstances beyond my control, this part of my blog have taken into hiatus for the past couple of months.
‘No man is an island‘, as the saying goes. I’m sure most of us would agree that we need other people to survive in this world. The quote above resonated with me. I’ve been stuck in a difficult situation these days and is almost on the verge of giving up. I’ve never felt so worthless in my life, not until last week, where I failed miserably in resolving the financial crisis that we have. I lost my full-time work-from-home job, my internet connection has been restrained due to my unpaid balance, not to mention the lack of financial support from my partner abroad. I can’t help but wonder, how could this world be so cruel to me that it’s doing everything it could to pin me down?
Today, I just nailed down a new Telemarketing job with the help of a friend who is actually struggling with a more financial crisis than I could possibly imagine. Her family could hardly eat a decent meal a day. And yet here she is, still able to help others in her own way. I am so blessed to have known her. I pray to our God Almighty that she would be able to hang on and survive her own troubles.
I may not be able to do so much for her for now but I gave her some words of encouragement and assured her that if there’s anything I can do to help her, she need not think twice to reach out to me. As I always say, the best is yet to come…
I would be delighted to read your thoughts about the quote I shared. Have a wonderful week to you all!
It has been about four months now since I landed a full time home based job as a Technical Support/Sales and it’s been about that period that I haven’t written any article in this blog aside from this monthly blogging event, #mymonthlymemories. A big shout out to a pretty blogger, Basant She of The Socially Anxious Extrovert for coming up with such an amazing idea of making a journal in one’s blog in at least once a month. I would be delighted for you to read other’s entries and more if you’d join us as well. For instructions, kindly click here.
Timing has never been this cruel. Every attempt of doing things right within my perceived time frame is not working for me these days. This is just so ridiculous and unfair. I am having difficulty understanding what the universe is trying to tell me.
Good timber does not grow with ease.
The stronger the wind the stronger the trees. – Thomas S. Monson
Truth be told, I am not a patient person. I despise having to wait, especially if it is something that could be done right away. I know we cannot outrun time let alone snatch back moments that passed us by. Our situation last week has been tougher than tough. It was as if all forces in heaven and on earth is in connivance to pin me down. It was awful. Every twist and turn of events, obviously, isn’t in my side. I’m on the verge of breaking down. I’ve never felt so dragged and exhausted, never felt so mocked and helpless.
I love those random memories that makes me smile;
no matter what’s going on in my life right now.
I’m not trying to be funny here, forgive me that this may turn out to be a rant o a way to vent my frustrations with life. Believe me, I didn’t mean to sound like that. I’m not begging for sympathy, I am just being kind to myself by de-cluttering my mind and detoxifying my soul. This is my blog, anyway. I would do anything I can to lessen my burden because my children still needs me. With God’s help and mercy, I know these difficulties shall pass. I just need to keep the faith, hold on, and keep on moving forward no matter what.
Here’s hoping beyond hopes for a wonderful and fruitful September for all of us. Cheers!
This must be one hell of a rough month in blogging I must say. I’ve attempted a couple of times to write and post an article and to my dismay, unable to. I’ve never felt so helpless and weak with my blog before. It’s as if one of my dreams is dying on me. But I won’t let this continue. I would do everything I could to keep this blog even if it would mean taking an hour out of my sleeping time to make up for all the loss. I’m just so thankful that there are still people who’d spare a couple of minutes of their precious time to check on my posts, hit like, write a comment. For all fellow bloggers who followed my blog, let me express how grateful I am, you’re all awesome.
I love those random memories
That makes me smile;
No matter what’s going on
In my life right now…
This is in response to a blogging event, entitled #mymonthlymemories hosted by a friend-blogger, of The Socially Anxious Extrovert. You may want to visit her wonderful blog and find articles worthy to read. Better yet, join us in writing your monthly memories about what transpired in your blog and in your life every month. Nostalgia is always a good thing. It paints a smile on our lips whenever it reminds us of things that happened in the past that’s worth remembering, things that made us so happy. Making us realize how beautiful life could be no matter what is in front of us in the present, may it bad, or worse. And when everything seems to go down the drain, it is what keeps us our sanity and our drive for success. I always find delight in sharing a part of myself and writing a monthly journal, as I put it, is one way to declutter my mind, relieve my soul from too many burdens. Thus, making room for positive thoughts and feelings.
July’s definitely a hectic and productive month when it comes to working from home. I was able to land additional part time job as an email responder. I just started last week and now awaiting my first salary this coming Friday. The pay is not that decent compared to my full time job as a Technical Support/Sales Representative but at least it will still help us with our growing everyday expenses. As I always say, we can only do so much and part of me is not pleased since I am way behind with all the blogging event I join every week. It’s really hard to keep up.
I won’t promise but I’m confident enough to be back with a bang. I know I’m way past contemplating. still, I believe that God gave us the ability to do what we want and need to do as long as we put our minds to it and do it with hope and dedication. Here’s cheering for an amazing August.
I am always fond of numbers. Ever since I’ve learned how to count, I’ve known its value or importance and how it affects our everyday lives. How an amount, no matter how small could make difference. Logic tells us that in a mathematical equation or even in simple computation, one wrong digit could definitely alter the projected outcome and could mess the total.
I dream in numbers, & I like to look up the meaning of numbers, & numbers stick out to me.
– Zoe MCLellan
I happened to be a victim of a number game these past few days. And for the first time in my life, I began to fear numbers. I just can’t believe this is really happening. It never crossed my mind that I would feel this way and for me, it’s bizarre. I am always enthusiastic writing numbers but at this moment, I just can’t find that feeling. I can’t even move my fingers and I can’t even find the courage to stare at the big amounts of bills in front of me. How I dreaded this damn situation.
The cost of living these days is so high that I felt like drowning, gasping for breath. My partners remittance abroad is barely enough to sustain our everyday needs so I decided to work as a freelancer. I am caught up in a number game again. This time, I need to learn how to manage time being a stay at home mother of four children and a full time technical support/sales agent. And it’s not an easy feat. I’ve never had enough sleep since then, I would be lucky enough to have at least four hour sleep a day. But I in spite of all my struggles, I still find joy inside me. Seeing my children happy and being able to give them what they need, what they deserve is more than enough to compensate me for all the hardships that I’m going through. I believe that this is just another blessings in disguise and I’m just grateful to God that He allowed it to happen.
Now, could I still say to myself that I am still fond of numbers? Yes, indeed! Counting my blessings always empowers me and gives me strength in each and every day. Here’s hoping this article inspires you!
There are moments when we’re ‘spacing out’ or having a mental block. The world seem to stop revolving, the time standing still.
I know all of us experienced this thing not only once. Maybe that is our mind’s response once it reaches its limit. It seems that it automatically shuts itself off once it’s been used up already? If this is the case, why are there still people who lost their sanity? Is it because their will is weak? Or is it because they choose to lose their mind? Ah! even these questions doesn’t make any sense to me but somehow gives me something to ponder about. No wonder, it is hard to be an understanding person.
I just stumbled upon this quote and I can’t help but share it while smiling at myself at the same time in our 40th Weekly Quotes To Ponder feature. This is really a spot on. Do you agree with this quote? I would be delighted to read your comments.
And before I conclude this post, let me leave you another quote from David C. Pack. This is one hell of a statement I just can’t ignore:
“Most people live their entire lives without a clue as to why they are here. They drift aimlessly, unconcerned about the answers to life’s greatest questions-why life and why death? Others enjoy debating the meaning of life, but never arrive at the correct answers. Many conclude that mankind is little more than a product of evolution-blind, dumb luck!”
Then an answer from the Word of God – The Bible:
That’s what I got after ‘spacing out’. More insights to what life’s all about. Thank God for all the wisdom and for His saving grace. I now know what my life’s purpose and I’m following it.
