Bounce Back

I’ve been on hiatus for a few months. As much as I love writing, I found myself losing passion due to personal issues. I’ve always wanted to write from the heart and find meaning in experiences. But you know, sometimes things happen. And it can leave you feeling lost and empty.

Personal

Love should feel safe. A person who loves is a person who accepts. All conditions, all circumstances, and all forms. All of me. All of you. No ifs and no buts.

Love should be nourishing. A person who loves is a person who cares. One who respects, understands, and encourages. It should feel safe, amongst other things.

Love should be patient. Love that is given shouldn’t feel circumstantial. You care because you do. Not because I care for you.

Love is unbounded. It can be unwritten, but it can be seen. It can be unlabeled, but it can be felt. I love you because, not I love you until.

Love should be beautiful. Love is love. But most importantly, love shouldn’t hurt.

Stopping time for luck

Dennis Brown once said, “the difference between a good day and a bad day is the attitude.”

I’m not a patient person so it’s super easy to tick me off. I recently made a promise to myself to change this. I’m not sure how I’m doing, but I am avoiding wrinkles at all costs.

FREE DIY Business Card

I am attending a blogging event in a few days, and because of that, I needed a business card. I didn’t have time to have someone layout it out for me, so I looked for other options. Good thing, I discovered Canva!

Canva is a free online tool which lets you design anything from graphics to posters. It’s very easy to navigate and there are a lot of options to choose form. Are you ready to be a designer?

Mommy Money Tips

I’ve never been good at managing my finances. At least, not until I had a family. I’m still in the process of learning, though I honestly wish I would’ve started sooner. Good thing, MoneyMax Philippines sent over an infographic about Mommy Money Tips. Though my son is still very young to understand these, I already have a reference on which lessons I should teach him someday.

Book Review: From Depressed to Determined

We all need help sometimes. At 25, wanting to achieve personal success while wanting to be a great mom had its toll on me. I wanted to do both, so I don’t know which direction to take myself. I felt lost and demotivated. I’m not really a religious person, but I tried to ask God for guidance. Days after, I stumbled upon the book From Depressed to Determined by Viviene Bigornia. And just by reading the introduction, I knew that it was meant for me.
