Wag piliting mag-blog kung wala ka namang maisulat.
Pumapangit kasi ang content. :)
Take a break, recharge yourself! Hindi naman kailangan laging active ka sa pagpost. Sometimes, you need to find yourself again para malaman mo kung ano yung interests mo na gusto mong isulat.
Don’t settle for reblogs kung nagsusulat ka naman. It can be a habit, which leads to the mindset na ‘since pwede naman ako magreblog, di nalang ako magsusulat.’ Iba ang recharging yourself para makapagsulat ulit at katamaran sa pagsusulat.
Ok lang ang manghingi ng TA, pero wag naman everyday yun nalang! Remember that you have readers that are interested in you kasi YOU made an impact in their lives through your writing(or art). Minsan sa kakahingi ng TA, lumalaki na yung ulo ng mga tao. Atsaka, let’s face it, hindi talaga magandang tignan (at magbasa) ng isang katutak na TA ng ibang tao araw-araw. Know your limits lang. :)
There you go guys! :D Hope you learned something! :D
For having great friends here in tumblr that I could meet, text, and talk to. Last year, I barely know anyone here! But now, I have a stable number of friends whom I could open up and laugh with! Also, I’m thankful because I could share God with them, and the happiness I have in having God in my life! :)
For having better health. My health deteriorated heavily during my depression phase and I’m always having attacks of asthma, acidity, and others that I don’t even know. But this year, God truly answered my prayers and gave me less attacks! :D
For being given the opportunity to serve God in more areas of my life. I started my small group this year! :) Rough start, but God is always faithful. I was also given positions in church that helps me connect people to God more. :) PLUS, the most amazing part is that I am given the chance to try out the ten-days mission work!! :D I will be submitting my papers next year. :) I’m praying for Bangladesh, but we’ll see what God wants.
For all the hardships that I went through this year. There were LOTS of hardships that I went through this year. I’m really thankful that they happened because I can really see how God changed me by letting me pass through those challenges. I was hurt a lot, but I also learned a lot. God healed me in along the way, so overall I came out stronger than ever. :)
For God. I’m thankful that He is so awesome! :) He makes me squirm, but makes me realize that I don’t have to be afraid! He gives me strength, and encourages me. He is my portion and prize. :)
Bonus: I am thankful that I can now open my heart to someone and be free to love~ :)
If I tagged you, you have to write your 5 things you’re thankful for this 2011! Then tag others too! :D
How about you? What are you thankful for this 2011?
This is a silent killer of one’s character and of people’s relationships.
♦ In a heated argument, what makes you go on justifying yourself? PRIDE.
♦ When you’re in fault, what makes it hard to ask for forgiveness? PRIDE.
♦ When others are in fault, what makes it hard to for you to let go and forgive? PRIDE.
In my heart, I have resolved that the relationships I have with my family and friends are more important than pride. For what gain will I have if I keep my pride intact, yet my relationships in chaos? That’s why,
I will be the first one to say sorry.
I will forgive easily.
I will not PRIDE ruin my life.
“For God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble” James 4:6
Konti palang yan compared sa lahat ng qualities na sinulat ko sa aking ‘Future Husband’ qualities na pinagpray ko. Medyo detailed ang aking prayer list, kasi gusto ko ng detailed perfection sa aking future companion. No less than what I want, syempre.
Pero ba’t ganun, bakit hindi parin perfect ang nakikita ko sa aking life ngayon?
Hintay ako ng hintay, pero yung perfect di parin dumarating. Parang napapa-isip tuloy ako, may ganun pa ba talagang lalake sa world ngayon? Bakit parang may shortage ng mga lalake na hindi babaero, hindi lasenggero, at hindi tinatapon ang buhay sa DoTa or sa mga console games na yan.
Nasaan na ba kasi ang mga tunay na gentleman ngayon?
Pero as I wonder and thought about it, my kuya (Doc Andy, hihi) told me something. Be careful daw sa perfect man syndrome! Sabi niya na wala namang perfect na tao sa mundo. Sometimes sa kakahanap natin ng perfect, we miss out the one na nasa harapan natin. We need to understand that sometimes, we are given people with qualities na we didn’t ask for.
Para mag-grow pa tayo. Kasi we need to learn how to love people despite their imperfections. Kailangan natin ng faith to know and believe that God is able to change that person’s life, for the better. Our love life was made not just so we could enjoy it, but it is made so that we can honor and glorify God.
I conclude by quoting this verse,
Everything was made by Him and for Him. -Colossians 1:16
Is your weakness in the area of relationships? ‘Cos honestly, it’s my weakness. But I’m not just talking about romantic relationships, but more on the platonic kind of relationship. Looking at my credentials, apparently:
I get hurt easily.
I’m hard to understand.
They are hard to understand.
But I kind of figured that it’s not just me who feels this way. A lot of people feel this way, especially people of my age. That’s why when y brother said this verse to me, I was on the verge of tears. I have read this before, but I guess this time it moved me differently. The verse says..
Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.
1 Peter 4:8
Ahhh, love indeed is powerful enough to cover all the faults of the people around me. More powerful and weighty than any faults that they would do to me.

Hindi ko hilig magpost kung sino nagfofollow saakin, or kung gaano karaming famous na ba ang nakakasalamuha ko.
Hindi ko rin hilig magpost ng stats (like, follower count) ko. Never pa ata ako nag post ng stats ko.
Naisip ko lang, I’m honored to be followed by famous people, pero diba tao lang namin din sila? I mean, katulad natin, we follow people kasi they give us inspiration, passion, and a renewed perspective of life. Minsan naman, we follow them kasi tagos sa puso yung mga sinusulat nila. It gives us this feeling na kahit papaano, hindi ka nag-iisa sa mga nararamdaman mo.
Pero paano na yung hindi famous? Diba TAO din naman sila? Though not known by many, they have a life that can be told! Marami din silang pwede i-share saatin na important at may lesson. :) Every life is important, and surely, everyone is made unique and special by God. :)
“The greatest thing about forgiveness is it will allow you to love again. It will allow you to love and be loved. And believe me, it’s worth it. Forgiveness is tough, for sure, but love is infinitely more valuable than the pain that forgiveness costs.”—Donald Miller
You consider yourself to be very religious, and yet takot ka sa mga rebulto? Wow.
Hindi po ako religious. I never considered myself one. :)
Nakakatakot naman kasi talaga sila tignan for me. They stare with an empty stare! Tas parang kahit saan ako pumunta yung tingin nila ay nasa akin. HAHA, or paranoid lang tlga ako. :D But I have overcome the fear little by litte, pero I’m really uncomfortable being inside a room with a rebulto. :D
Ang isang tunay na babae ay may makabuluhang buhay na interesting at peaceful kaya hindi na niya kailangan pang magpapansin. Ang mga lalake (at babae) na ang lalapit sakanya ng kusa dahil masaya at masarap siyang kasama bilang isang tao at isang kaibigan.
At higit sa lahat, hindi na niya kailangan maging overly pa-cute kasi alam niya na sa kalooblooban niya na cute siya. :)
Not out of self-pity nor of envy will I blog about this. I will blog about this with courage and love, knowing that the truth will set people free.
All through-out ng pag-stay ko dito, parang lahat ng followers ko simula nung una kong set ng mga sampung followers na lahat ay kakilala ko in real life hanggang sa kung ilan man ang meron ako ngayon, lahat sila iniisip na mayaman kami.
Flattered ako! :) Thank you.
Pero actually, hindi kami mayaman. :D I wanted to stress that out. Hindi dahil nagpapaka-awa ako, or something, pero gusto ko yan ma-stress out para ma-gets niyo na hindi lahat ng gusto ko nasusunod.
PINAGHIHIRAPAN NG MAGULANG KO ANG PANG-TUITION KO. Pawis at dugo nila yun! Lahat ng meron ako, pinag-ipunan at pinag-isipan munang bilhin. Lahat budgeted. Kailangan mag-plan ahead before gumastos kasi hindi magkakasya kung lahat ng wants ay bibigyan pansin.
Kaya nga thankful ako kay Lord kasi kahit na sobrang hirap ng buhay ngayon, at kahit super broke na ako, I am still given the chance to share the little I have through a give-away. Mas masarap parin mag-share kesa manghoard. Mas masaya pag shared ang happiness! :D
Kaya, sali na kayo! :) Minsan lang ito mangyari~ :D
