What You Need To Read Right Now

We all have those moments when we feel like everything is just too difficult to handle. There are days when we start to question why we needed to experience sufferings and pain when we have done nothing but show our love, compassion and care for the people surrounding us. We start to wonder why our prayers were unheard and why we couldn't get the things we thought we deserve. For these moments, always remember what Paulo Coelho wrote in his book - The Manuscript Found in Accra. I found comfort in his words and I hope that you do too. After re-reading it, I felt happier. I was able to see the different perspective of why I had to fall down sometimes. Now, I feel so much better and I'm on the right track again.

The Need to Get Away and What Made Me Fall In Love

I've been wanting to get away from my old routine, to try something new or to have a sweet escape. I wanted to run away from everything. I wish I had the courage to leave everything behind and start all over again. However, along the way, I came to realize that I couldn't just give up because things are hard so I chose to be faithful to my dreams. By far, I'm feeling great but a part of me still wanted to take a break which why I immediately said yes when some of my close friends in law school invited me for an overnight beach outing. I knew I needed some R&R with the ones close to my heart.

The Day I Told Myself "I Will Stand Still"

The funny thing about life is that we don’t know how much we need something unless it presents itself to us, especially when we least expect it. This is what I thought of after I attended the law school recollection for third year students. If you go through my old posts in Twitter and in this blog, you will see how difficult it was for me in the past few months. There were many struggles which brought me to a point of complete surrender.

Shining Holidays at Marco Polo Davao

It is a known fact that Christmas is my favorite time of the year. Whenever I drive around the city and see Christmas lights and trees or hear Christmas songs from my radio, I feel instantly happy. Instead of complaining about the traffic and holiday rush, I allow the spirit of Christmas to bring me into a peaceful and happy state. There is really something about this season that brings smiles and laughers to people regardless of what they are going through or no matter how busy they get.
