Scarred and Scared

Your 20s is the time when you feel so healthy and alive. You do not feel that you are vulnerable to any disease even though you binge on junk food, sleep late, sleep less, do lots of things without getting proper rest, and the list could go on and on and on. Put simply, it…

Running Challenge

Just this morning, while doing some stretching exercises before our Saturday morning run, Pablo posed a very enticing workout challenge. (Enticing because I know I can beat him to it. *fingers crossed*). πŸ˜‚ Going back to the challenge… Since we’ve been regularly (well sort of regular, I believe) running 5k every Saturday, he tested me…

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. πŸ˜‚ 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,…

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,…

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.

Worry is a Waste of Time

I worry too much, even if there is nothing to be worried about. I am praning,Β 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…

Healthy Boundaries

Wow! It has been weeks since I last posted an entry. I have a lot of drafts awaiting review, but I am still finding the best time to squeeze them in my current schedule. Apologies for my inactivity for the past weeks, but itΒ has been a very, very busy start of the year for me….
