All in His Time

From numbered unmemorable days and countless hours of figuring out what will happen next to my constantly changing existence, to happily writing things that came to me unexpectedly, is a living proof that God is moving in my life. His plans never fails. The process was not that easy. It took me couple of weeks of insanity simply because I relied on my own understanding. But if you place your trust into His promises and hold on to your faith with the spirit of gratitude, it will come into place smoothly. All in His time.

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways
acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.

-Proverbs 3:5-6

New Place
EDSA tops
View from the roof deck, GA Tower 2

Together with my thrifty-wise-spender lovely sister, Wilt. We moved to a condominium that is accessible to all working place. Hello there EDSA! I've always wanted to move to a place near MRT. I like my alarm clock to be the buzzing sound of buses and trains. Haha.. I love it! I was a bum when we moved and I have to pay the rent.
avor comes in. We got the place discounted
! Thank you Lord. I was broke that time. I never got to spend that much for my cravings. Natatawa nalang ako everytime
I hear this on the radio,
"Di bale ng walang pera, muka namang artista." haha..benta. 

I've been through various interviews that I found tiring and inspiring at the same time. I was tired of googling places, faking smiles and trying to impress people in first meeting. The inspiring part was getting to know different people with their own stories. They will make you realized that you are still blessed in spite of what you are going through. Some of them turned out to be my new networks.

 New Job
Hello there office
After two weeks of exploring the concrete jungle where dreams are made of, haha.. Finally, I found one. Who would have thought that I would land to a job that will spoil me. My table beside the window viewing the skyline, sunshine hits my desk, there's a park near the office where I can unwind during breaks, flexible working hours, only 15 minutes away from home, no quota, no weekends, clever office mates, good salary, and cool bosses..perfection. I didn't passed the exam for the position I applied for.
o my surprise,
hey opened a new job position for me! God moves in mysterious awesomely way. Just overwhelming.

New Love
Us taken by Ems Aquino
Here comes my combo-breaker number 3, my love life. "New day. New life. New. New. New. New year na ba te? Hahaha! Saya mooo!". My friend Ynah tweeted that to me when she found out about this. Haha..sounds overrated? Well, all comes according to His will and I'm eternally grateful about it. I know that I'll fall in love all over again, but I never expected it to be this early and it's happening. Who? When? Where? What? Why? How?..
Whatever the question is.. I feel blessed, fulfilled, and supernatural.

God wants to be involved in even the smallest details of our lives.
Just allow Him and completely trust Him with perseverance. He never fails.

Quit Overthinking

Over-thinking ruins you. 
Ruins the situation, twists things around, makes you worry 
and just makes everything much worse 
than it actually is.

It is inevitable for us not to worry much about our current situations. You tend to dwell on thoughts about your concerns, trying to figure things out why it happened or what could have been and making wrong conclusions instead of solutions to your problems. You have to stop. You'll only end up making it worst. Overthinking doesn't help. It will only increases your sadness, stimulates negative thinking, lowers your motivation, drains your energy and drives out your real focus. If you practice this often, you are allowing yourself to become more depressed.

"Although people have a strong sense that they are gaining insight into themselves and their problems during their ruminations, this is rarely the case. What they do gain is a distorted, pessimistic perspective on their lives." -Professor Sonja Lyubomirsky

Quit overthinking. Over-thinking ruins you. Ruins the situation, twists things around, makes you worry and just makes everything much worse than it actually is. 
This was hard for me at first. I am used to it. For work reasons, I have to squeeze some juice to come up with new ideas. I can't help to practice it as well for my personal life. The feeling I had with it was like creating my own nightmare. This verse tamed me.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. -Philippians 4:6-7

Start doing what needs to be done. Stop naming and counting your reasons just to avoid the thing you have to do. Pride is always the price to pay. You cannot get anything unless you pay the price.  

Accept the reality. Be true to yourself. You live in the present, there's no need to look back. What matters today is what you are now, not what you used to be. Let your past give you lessons, not room for bitterness.

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you. -Philippians 4:8-9

What are your worries lately? Just dwell on these things and put it all into practice
And last, completely trust Him and His peace will be with you.

Who's In Charge?

"Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken."

To My One-liner Hater

I'm not under my shell
I'm guarded with chains
Embraced with fears
Locked with security.

Your assumptions were right, 
but not yet in time.

obsessive commands..
nuisance mood swings..
ambiguous thoughts..
impalpable romances..
whimsical nonsense..

 Impressions you're unaware,
is the reason why I'm still awake.

Will you try dancing under the rain, 
instead of hiding your cries solely?

Grab your strings
Exhale merry notes
Let's be pop 
Let our music take us away.

My one-liner hater,
Let us be us.
Time will come
Fate won't refuse us.

Lovely Colorful Artworks

Color never fails to brighten up a day. Added with quirky artworks, playful patterns and simple words can somehow lighten up your aura. But if you want to make your happiness last not only for the rest of the day, start with a merry heart. Loosen up those baggage that weighs you down..breathe out..shake it off..surrender your sorrows to God. Count your blessings. Practice optimism.
True happines will reflect on your face.

Mr. Grey Brought Me Here

It is amazing on how a one second click can capture ones character in a very detailed manner. These photographs imbues with captivating romanticism and dominating pull. I see beauty in a deepest form like something touches me. I can't believe Christian Grey influenced me that much and made me thought of compiling men that embodies his character. And yes, these are the most interesting, sexiest and impeccable men alive..for me. I would be glad if some of my bets could play Mr.Grey.
Ermahgerd, I can't wait.
Who's your bet?

Winter is Coming

This look was inspired by the phenomenal medieval fantasy series, Game of Thrones. I can't deny my deepest admiration to the creators, writers, realistic production and most especially to the characters of the series. My heart is for the Starks, but my will to watch it overnight goes to the ever greedy, ruthless and fierce queen,
Cersei Lannister. 

She is willful, ambitious, and cunning in the sense that she is utterly willing to betray anyone who trusts her, or do anything to protect her own. However, she is also arrogant and self-centered to a fault. While she certainly believes herself to be a master strategist, she is extremely impatient, short-sighted, and displays poor judgement, making her actually not very skilled at manipulating enemies who openly do not trust her. In public, Cersei often tries to exude a sense of calm and regal control over her surroundings. However, when things do not go her own way Cersei's usual response is to become extremely flippant, even when the assembled Small Council is trying to give her advice which would serve her own interests.

 How cruel is that? If I could be bad, I could be as mad as her. Fighting not for fame or power, but for the fullness of a wonderful joyous life for my love ones.

Sideways by Franco

Franco Reyes


You know it ain't easy
For these thoughts here to leave me
There's no words to describe it
In French or in English
  'Cause diamonds they fade
And flowers they bloom
And I'm telling you

These feelings won't go away
They've been knockin' me sideways
They've been knockin' me out lately
Whenever you come around me

These feelings won't go away
They've been knockin' me sideways
I keep thinking in a moment that
Time will take them away

But these feelings won't go away
These feelings won't go away

Do It

For we speak as messengers approved by God to be entrusted with the Good News.
Our purpose is to please God, not people. He alone examines the motives of our hearts.
(1 Thessalonians 2:4, NLT)

Those were not my favorite numbers, but the relevance of the number series is something to be remembered and sealed. There's nothing extra-ordinary that will happen today. Things such as the moon will be half-covered by the sun, or the stars will collide forming heart shape, or anything amazing that the world shall witness. It's just that the date today will never be repeated again. I just want to make something that I can look back. So, here's a short story out of my Instagram pictures.

In every splendid working day, she writes.
She starts her day with a daily devotion. Words that she carries all throughout the day.
Her outfit wouldn't be complete without her favorite coral red lipstick that will compliment it.
She puts it on, preps the day with much enthusiasm -ready to kiss the day good luck.
Her watch is 10 minutes advance. I don't get it.
It doesn't help her anyways.
She applies this quote especially during travel time.
She puts on her iPod and all will turn out good as her song plays.
When she can't help it, sometimes this slips through her mouth.
Mostly heard whenever she's unpleasantly surprised.
After work, she still manage to go out for gigs doing other things she loves.
Photography and Music.
Good shoes can take you to good places. That's why she invest for good shoes.
You will find her wherever there's indie music and to any artsy event happenings,
or to any restaurant that offers buffalo wings, vanilla ice cream and wintermelon milk tea.
Practice..practice..practice. That's what she needs.
Someday, she will have the guts to answer her call.
That is to make music for His glory.
Next to God would be her family, passion and true friends.
Special someone?..
Still in her dreams. Someday, her prince will come and wake her up with a kiss.
And they will live happily ever after..for eternity.

There! Hope you like it.
