New Year’s Resolutions

This is the time of the year when many of us will come up with our year-end essays and long list of resolutions for the coming year. 😂 Others may think that doing so is overrated, well kanya kanyang trip lang ‘yan. Let them express or write anything they want. You, on the other hand,…

Checking In

Just renewed my plan for this blog, and I realized I was not able to maximize my last year’s plan, and I am not really good at maintaining my commitment to write more often. I know I do not have to explain to anyone, but my inactivity here is just a mere by-product of life’s…

DABDA

Okay. Let’s talk about your feelings, Mary Rose. Let’s discuss it for your sanity’s sake. I honestly don’t know where to start. But I’m going to put this one out here because I’m better at writing about my thoughts, rather than talk about them with someone else – yup, not even with my dad, brothers,…

Missing You

I miss seeing your happy face; Your smile that lights up even our darker days. I miss watching you giggle That makes our heart grow triple. I miss feeling the warmth of your embrace, Your hug that feels like a safe place. I miss resting my head on your shoulder, Your whisper saying that everything…

Facade

It’s hard to play pretend Like there’s nothing happening. You hope and pray everything will mend, Because deep inside you’re truly hurting. It’s hard to play pretend Like you are strong as how you want people to see you. You try so hard to bend and blend, Taking every minute to get through. It’s hard…

Tuesdays aren’t my favorite

Just before I hit the sack, I just need to release my frustrations. Ever since I started working, I instantly developed a negative feeling toward Tuesday. For some reason, I noticed that my misfortunes usually fall on a Tuesday, and everything seems to be heavier during this day of the week – workload, traffic, etc….

2017 Life Lessons

I still can’t believe that 2017 will be over in a few days! I’ve been constantly hearing myself say that the past years went by fast, but 2017 is like soooo high in adrenaline; everything seems to pass by incredibly faster this year. Honestly, I can’t keep up sometimes. I can still remember my last…

Real Talk about PMS

PMS or premenstrual syndrome refers to the physical and emotional symptoms a woman feels one to two weeks before the start of her period. The symptoms include pesky zits, tender breasts, backache, abdominal cramps, headache/migraine, irritability, mood swings, feeling of tiredness, bloating, intense hunger and cravings to name a few. Symptoms may vary to every…

Worry is a Waste of Time

I worry too much, even if there is nothing to be worried about. I am praning, if you must say. I always have to think overthink about every situation, which leads to restlessness and more stress. I know it is not healthy, but bad habits die hard, I guess. But I believe that correcting one’s behavior…

Power of Prayer

A few months ago, while on our way to work, Pablo and I had a conversation about our childhood. I cannot clearly remember other parts of our conversation, but what struck me was my recollection of how I pray every night when I was still a little kid. I told him, every night before going…

Y❤GA

Let me start this post by saying I love yoga! And if there’s one type of exercise I could do every single day, it is going to be yoga. Yes, all day, every day. 😁 I started gaining interest in yoga when I was still in college. And I must admit it started with just…
