12/08: Being at Home

image

This are the days when I start to hate my work because I no longer have all the time to spend at home except of course for sleeping. I am now gathering all the words that I can get in my mind within 15 minutes because I need to prepare for work.

My work requires me to chat with customers and fix their mobile applications and home security. It’s a business-process outsourcing company, one of the leading companies in the Philippines and I owe my graduate studies to them because I availed their educational assistance program. The operations is 24/7 and my shift starts at 12am to 9am.  How cool is that?  Yeah right.
I’m glad to be at home today even if I spent most of my time in my room feeling the remnants of my flu crippling me. I hate that I’m sick for the past few days because of the changing weather that I was not able to do a lot of things. My body just can’t take it anymore but I do have no choice. I still need to go to work and school. 

I feel shit , I mean sick.

Anyways, today I must say is still awesome. I just need a few minutes to feel my existence at home.

12/03: Being Alone

I stumbled upon an anonymous quote online few days ago which states “The best way to be happy with someone is to learn to be happy alone that way the company will be a matter of choice and not necessity.

This was so true that I reblogged the quote on my Instagram and Tumblr account.

Most people nowadays seem to be swooned with the idea that you need to have someone to take care of you and that being alone can sometimes be pathetic. I used to feel that way, I must admit.

It’s pathetic to eat alone because others may think that your date stood you up.
It’s pathetic to watch movies alone because who watch movies in cinemas alone? It’s scary and creepy sitting alone in the dark wherein any moment there’s someone who’ll just inject you something and you woke up the next day with HIV — one of the worst thing that can happen in a movie theatre. It’s pathetic to travel alone because people might think you’re heart broken and simply needs to wander alone to find yourself.

People can sometimes conform to what society thinks. Unfortunately, I’m not part of the majority.

For the past few years, I learned to love myself. I was a hopeless romantic behind my tough demeanor. I used to ask why I love someone who doesn’t love me back and why can’t I love those who love me. It’s been one hell of a depressing cycle. Oh well, it’s over now.

Today, I’ve never been happier and comfortable with myself. I realized that I am my own competition. I accepted my flaws and worked on my insecurities.

December 3 and I’m celebrating my life alone but definitely not lonely. I treated myself in a nearby hotel just because I want to. As what Paulo Coehlo said, “Do whatever you decide to do, but make sure that it makes you happy. ”

Embrace your awesomeness my dear and learn to be a little bit nice to yourself. 

Much love,

12/02: Yearning the Past

I guess I spent most of my time today either sleeping or reminiscing. Today will be another ordinary yesterday when tomorrow comes but I won’t let this moment pass.

I won’t let this day drift away. If only I record what’s on my mind right now, I will. It’s nice to go back during the times when you don’t worry anything. Those times when we’re still on diapers and does not even understand what responsibility and adulthood means. You don’t worry so much of getting old as well as your financial needs because someone is taking care of you. You have your parents caring for your needs and wants and all you need to do is cry when you’re hungry and smile — the one that melts people’s heart.

I’m currently 24 and I’m simply reminiscing how it is to be a child again. If only I can gather all those baby memories again, I’ll surely do.

My life so far has been interesting. I like how the way things in the past made sense today. Life is beautiful if we train our minds to see the positives in every difficult situation.

29 more days before the year ends , let’s all be awesome!

Love,

12/01: Doing Nothing in Your Room

It’s actually awesome when you’re actually doing nothing and just let your mind day dream while your body does not worry about work, graduate school and all the others problems life has to offer.

I’m glad I still have all the time to do nothing but rest.

Let’s start December by simply chilling.  🙂

09/14 – Day 296: Wallpaper

I love my new typography inspired wallpaper. I won’t deny that I have always been a fan of Paris, France and the Eiffel Tower has been a life – long fetish. I get to carry my dream place wherever and whenever I want to. It also serve as a reminder that I need to work harder for me to visit the place I have longed to visit for years.

Comment ca va? Bien.:)

05/08 – Day 167: World Red Cross Day

“There is no noble heart than a heart of a volunteer.”

Today is World Red Cross Day and all Red Crossers are celebrating the birth of our founder Jean Henri Dunant. He was the brain behind the humanitarian organization that caters for the vulnerable especially in times of war, disasters and accidents. The Red Cross always live by their principles: Humanity, impartiality, neutrality, independence, voluntary service, unity and universality.

The Red Cross… always first, always ready and always there.

01/24 – Day 62: Travelling

Since waiting in the airport for almost 9 hours is extremely frustrating, I just diverted my attention into some things that are awesome.

I was sitting there thinking about my recent bucket list and how to make one of my goals there to happen. I always tell my friends that I wanted a job that requires me to travel and also to learn different cultures around the world. Worthwhile experiences can surely happen if you are a complete stranger in a foreign place who just wanted to know more about yourself. They say that to fully appreciate something, you need to lose something or somehow try to stay away from it — I think I need to stay away from my comfort zone.

Adventure spells awesomeness! Only few has the courage to take risks and do the things that they want no matter what the result will be. I admire those people who wants to spiced up there lives by doing something extreme and live it by the edge.

My life right now can sometimes be suffocating because of it being a daily routine. I want to do a lot of things but I lack the time. In this stage of life — time is just another luxury that you need to plan well for you to make the best use of it. I plan my life but I am open to different surprises that may come on the way. When I review my life plan, I am just right on track but there are things that I want to happen now. I guess you can never have all that you wanted as it just happens in a perfect world.

I’ve been to several places within the country but it is not enough for me to fully appreciate Philippines and what it has to offer as I was not able to immersed on various cultures yet. After I get so tired of exploring my roots then that will be time that I will venture out on a trip to a country that is a thousand miles away from ours. I want to get lost to find myself and my purpose in life. I may lived by the moment but I still long for the day where I can find solace because after all those pointless searches I have finally knew what I really wanted to happen in my life. God offers a lot of opportunities and you should be wise enough on what to grab and what not. Missed opportunities can also be a good source of knowledge and self realization in the end.

Let me share to you some places I want to go to in each continent:

    – Paris
    – Jeju Island
    – New York
    – Rio de Janeiro
    – Cairo
    – Melbourne
    – Deception Island

Travel if you have the budget and the time as it is the best way to unwind and free yourself from the strangles of your routine life.

Live. Laugh. Love. Explore.

11/28 – Day 5: My 2011 Journal

Journal of Mine!

I still believe that it is best to keep a journal for us to jot down our dreams, aspirations, emotions and frustrations. There is still beauty in handwritten thoughts rather than seeing it online with different fonts. I started writing my random feelings way back in high school and that includes crazy poems, love sick thoughts, frustrations, bucket lists for the year, letters to God and so on… If I am bored, I reread those stuffs and laugh on how absurd it is, cry on memories that I explained in detail, smile on achievements that I had, frown on how stupid I am by falling inlove with the wrong one and feel inspired to write more. I don’t regret it though, it reminds me of how strong I am today because of what happened in the past may it be good or bad. Life is full of twists and turns and you will thank God for what you have become today. My journal reflects the real me, I am not saying I am fake but it is where I can just write about anything, lifting each burden to God and just like what the cover states — It is indeed my anchor of hope.

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding.”
— Proverbs 3:5
