A year ago, I had a young happy heart that never experienced great life trials. Suddenly, things changed. A sudden life tragedy came, I failed myself. I was on the verge of giving up. I always end up crying myself to sleep. I never thought those things would happen to me. I don’t know what to do. I was so lost. I doubted myself. I questioned myself a million times but I never questioned God. He’s the one who helped me to go through those trials.
No one knows how hard it was, how painful it was. All I know is that everyone judged me to the core. Everyone gave me a scrutinizing look and yes, they made it hard for me. All along, I know they will never forget that incident. Not to mention, how the news spread so fast. Other people who weren’t there would judge me based on the story that they’ve just overheard making it a wrong version. With that, I suffered with inferiority complex.
Yes, that was a single mistake that almost ended my world. I kept on praying. I was given another chance, a chance that no one expected. Indeed, prayer is the most powerful chant. I never left God in times of the trials that He gave to me for I know he’s always with me to give strength that I needed. He is my primary source of strength.
Almost a year has passed; I can say that I’m stronger with God’s love. I keep on learning. With those thorns that left a scar in my heart will always remind me how great God’s love is for me. I can say to myself that I was able to get through with the hardships because I have a great God. No thorns can make my heart stop from beating for my love to the Almighty one.
Never lose faith. Be strong and never put blame to others and especially to God. One can get over any trials in life. Just remember that the pain that Jesus felt is much more than what we are suffering today. With that, bow your head and pray. He’ll help you ease the pain.
I’m now living my life with a strength well built from God’s love by my strong faith to Him. Travel the road with Him because He’s the ultimate guide.
Be strong. Pray. Do not be afraid.
Thank You Jesus. I love You.

Today is the last day of July. I’m stoked for an awesome August. #optimistic
I pray for a great new month and I believe it will be. August is the birth month of my brother… and as well as G dragon (nyahaha very significant right?)
July has been pretty well to me. It was a pull-out month for me. I’ve conquered some of my fears. Thank God!
I have a goal for the month of August. I should deal with my crybaby moments. I should make my heart stronger. Just like Pixie Lott song, ♫♪Never gonna bring me down. Gonna keep on dancing till the sun comes out.♫♪ I should never let anyone or anything bring me down.
I feel so blessed not just with material things but with the love and concern of the people around me. Speaking of, I was able to buy a lot this month.
Thank you Lord.
Today is the birthday of my one and only Father, the King in my heart. He’s my number one fan. Someday, I’ll meet my prince who is like my father who treats me as a princess. Figuratively.
Happy 54th birthday to my loving father! We miss you! Thank you for everything.
June 17, 2012
Third Sunday in the month of June 2012.
I bring salute to my dear Father who is my epitome of greatness. He’s not just a Father to me but my best friend. He may not be with us for he works abroad but he knows me well. He knows if I have a problem with just the way I say Hello when answering his call. He was not with us physically when I was growing up but in my heart he was there guiding me. He believes in me more than I do with myself. When I doubted myself, he gives me confidence. He never broke his promises. He loves us more than his self. He is my life paragon.
Happy Father’s Day! Thank you for everything! ♥♥
It’s been a long time since I’ve made a personal text post here on Tumblr. I even ignore updating my micro blogging account, Twitter. I think I’m not that much a fan of social networking sites. In terms of updating, I still prefer updating my Twitter account than my Facebook account. Twitter gives me more the feeling of freedom in posting unlike Facebook.
Hey friends, I’m still alive. Busy with work and loving life. My mind is on set today for a blog update. Not lazy today. Oh yesssss.
I’m fond of taking random photos that could remind me of what happened to me on that specific day. Love taking pictures of non-living things than taking selcas!
Souvenirs from Seth’s christening and Cham’s birthday celebration on top of my red satchel bag.
On my first ever salary, I treated my mom a simple lunch in KFC. I’ve been bugging her to eat somewhere else but she wants KFC!
The feeling of having my first salary can’t be explained by words. I actually want to save all my money. haha But it feels good to be able to share my earned money to my parents and brother. My mom cooked spaghetti, ginataang bilo-bilo and menudo as thanksgiving. I also bought a whole roasted chicken.

Things I bought on my first salary. I returned my Goody Bun Spiral and have it exchanged for Spin Pins.
My 2nd shoes that I bought since I’ve started working. Some of my duty paraphernalia with my ID.
My patient’s mom gave this to me before her daughter was discharged. Simple yet memorable. Priceless.
I’m learning to appreciate everything in my life whether it’s good, bad, ugly, unfair, sadness, happiness, NAME IT. As a 21 years old, I still feel that I’m not that matured enough. I still have LOT of things TO LEARN and TO EXPERIENCE.
I’ve been so thankful to God that I’m so blessed. I’m working in a tertiary hospital. I have lots of lovely people in my life. I was able to surpass a my-world-broke-into-pieces phase. I’ve learned a lot from that phase of my life. I’m very much thankful because I know He has good plans for me. My most powerful chant is my prayers. My faith to Him makes me stronger as day passes by.
Hope don’t expect. Trust Him.
Oh yesss. After 10244842458210 days, I’m now updating my little space here on Tumblr.
First reason is, it’s the last day of March. I’m getting myself ready for some April Fool’s day pranks. Aside from that, tomorrow is Palm Sunday. Second reason, I finally beaten my laziness on doing a blog entry.
March has been so good. As what they say, a hospital is a world itself, it is where life and death, sadness and joy can cross paths more than you can imagine. I’m now in that world where I can finally practice my profession.
My emotional outlet.
It’s been more than 6 months of thinking, reflecting and realizing that life after college is much harder than the days being a student. My mind was so filled with unanswered questions and one of them was, “What to do now?” Being able to practice my profession in my so called dream world was never easy. Nurses do know that. I don’t want to feel hopeless so I tried to calm myself. My journal has been my emotional outlet for the past months.
6 months of doing nothing was not that fun. At first month, I calmed myself by thinking it’s okay to have a vacation first. As 5 months passed, I can no longer lie to myself that I still want to have this vacation. It makes me feel sick. My time has been just eaten by the little monster of my life. BTW, internet is the little monster of my life.
My empty planner.
I really wanted to have a vacation from the vacation feel. My planner has been so empty and I hated it because it only means that I’m not doing anything in my life. Oops, the OC-ness in me.
What I’ve learned over the last 6months was it’s better to be busy than bored. Trust me, doing nothing is the most tiresome job in this world.
Finally, March came in! After the exams and interviews I’m finally in my dream world wearing an all white uniform not as a student but as a registered nurse. March 12 was the official start of my vacation from the vacation feel. F.I.N.A.L.L.Y. I thank God for everything and for all those lovely people who helped and cheered me up.
Have a great April! Don’t be fooled by pranks! Also, don’t forget that tomorrow is Palm Sunday.

I wish I have a time machine. Can someone lend me one? haha
My cousin and I have the same watch. Thank you Ninang Jenny!:-)
Time flies so fast. I’m turning 21 this coming Valentine’s day. It’s been almost 6 months since I passed the nursing board exam.
All I can do now is to live for today and hope for the future as quoted from Edric Chen’s blog. I will seize each day.
I was so upset last week. Such a crybaby. I’m getting better each day. I always believe that everything happens for a reason.
