I just woke up from a two-hour nap. Feeling refreshed at last! This post is a day late I know, but like I always say, ‘better late than never’. I am grateful that despite the difficulties that I am going through these days, I could still find time to write in my blog. This would be my 48th Weekly Quotes To Ponderpost.
I’ve been working as a home-based Appointment Setter for about 9 months now. The company is based in CA, USA. I highly recommend working from home to my family, relatives, and friends who have young children to look after. Even when I am still working office-based, I hate the everyday commute not to mention the need to wake up 3 hours before leaving the house to take a bath, eat, and dress up.
Sincere feelings transcend time and connect hearts…
I guess I made a long introduction there. I’ve crossed path with a few work-from-home mothers who share the same passion and we hit it off big time. It’s amazing how friendship could develop virtually these days but of course, nothing beats a face to face interaction, a moment where you could see the person in flesh. I had these two colleagues at work that I considered as my sisters from a different parent. We had a plan to meet each other this month, We’re more than excited.
Truth be told, I am still having a hard time convincing myself, even as of this writing that one of them was gone (she died from cardiac arrest three days ago). Life is really unpredictable and death spares no one. I still grieve for the loss of a good friend. But nothing compares to the pain and devastation that her children and husband is feeling these days. At times like these, it makes me realize how important it is for us to live life to the fullest, that we should always make the most of every moment we spend with the people we care most. We should always express how much we care about them every chance we get because we’ll never know what will happen next.
What is your take on the quote above? Do you believe that there exists a death that is not physical? That even though people may look alive they are actually dying inside? I intend to explore this quote today, however, my hands are full, so I decided to continue this next week. But I welcome all your thoughts and comments with open arms.
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.”
Hi, there! It took me almost two weeks after November to write and partake in this blogging event called, #mymonthlymemorieshosted 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.
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!
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 Sheof The Socially Anxious Extrovert. For detailed instructions, kindly click here. I will be delighted to read your post.
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

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.
