Self-Help Saviors For When Life Gets Too Much

Do you ever have those days when you feel like you can’t cope? You want to scream or shout, bang your fists on the table or let all your emotions loose and have an hour-long crying session. If you do, you’re not abnormal. In fact, you’re perfectly normal. Many of us have very hectic and demanding lives. If we’re not working, we’re studying, trying to navigate our way through crowds of commuters or caring for children or family members. The nature of modern life means that often, we get to a point where it’s all too much. If you’re familiar with this feeling, these self-help saviors should come in handy. Here are some tips to help you cope with your emotions and find positivity in difficult situations.

Protect Your Blog

Your blog is under threat, whether you realise it or not. Unfortunately, many people take the security of their blog and its content for granted. That’s a mistake that you need to avoid, however. People often steal content from blogs, post it on their own websites and then claim that it’s theirs. You need to be on the lookout for that kind of behaviour, and that’s not the only threat to be aware of either.

To combat all the threats out there, there are some steps that you can take right now. There is no time to waste, so don’t hang around or put it off any longer. Read on to learn more about some of the things that you should do to protect your blog and the content you publish on it.

Farewell Year of Ambiguity


There will be no lengthy narration of how crazy my 2016 days were. I just want to give a shout out to the year of ambiguity I will never forget. What matters now is that 2017 is here, together with the uncertainties and endless possibilities. I'll end my short post with: "Here's to better days."

Who Are You On Cold Nights?

There is something about cold nights. They make you more vulnerable than you already are. On these nights, you will start to think about all the decisions you made and all the choices you will be making. You will ask questions about the "what could have beens", the "what ifs", and the "maybes" in your life. Your thoughts will stir up all the emotions that you have inside -- those that you express to the people around you and those that you try to hide from them. All these will happen naturally which makes it quite funny yet frightening at the same time. The cold nights will make you too emotional and a certified over thinker.

I don't like who I become (or who I am) on cold nights. I hate it when I am left alone with my thoughts and feelings on a cold night like tonight. So, for tonight, just let me write and write and write and write and write...

"I Met Someone and that Scares the Shit Out of Me"




"Dear Karen,

If you're reading this, it means I actually worked up the courage to mail it so good for me. You don’t know me very well, but if you get me started I tend to go on and on about how hard the writing is for me. This is the hardest thing I ever had to write.

It's Okay Baby Girl, You Don't Have To

“I’m a strong independent woman.” This holds true most of the time. I don’t mind going to restaurants or visiting local coffee shops without someone to accompany me. I don’t need anyone to do things for me because I believe that better results are achieved when I do them on my own. I have the capacity to fix whatever is broken in me or in my life independently. 

I don’t need anyone.

5 Best Beaches in the Philippines

If there’s one thing that Philippines is known for, it’s her pristine beaches. With more than 7000 islands, it’s no wonder why the country has so many beautiful coastline locations all worthy to be explored. The long and wide sparkly sand expanse hemmed in by turquoise waters, and shorelines lined up with shade-giving palm trees are just few of the gorgeous beach scenes available in the country. 

Although, with the number of existing beaches to choose from, it’s definitely hard to pick which ones you’ll journey to first. To make it easier for you, we’ve rounded up the top 5 Philippine beaches that you should definitely check out first.

5. Bantayan Island, Cebu

At number 5 is Bantayan Island, located at the northern tip of Cebu, a province in Visayas.


It is one of those island destinations were the waters perfectly complement the azure skies. The wide open sea sets the perfect location for a day basking in the sun. The island is fringed with white fine sand, ideal for barefoot walks and other fun, coastline activities.

#DDI: To Influence, To Engage and To Make A Difference

influence (n).


When you hear or read the word "influence," what is the first thing that comes into your mind? The said word is defined as the capacity to have an effect on the character, development, or behaviour of someone or something, or the effect itself. To influence simply means to have the capacity to affect the lives of certain individuals or a particular community. I am talking about this important word because a new organization of like-minded influencers have come together to create a group of Davao-based influencers whose aim is to Engage, Influence and Make a difference.
