I feel fulfilled when I get to pull someone’s mood up when they were in a rough day. That makes me feel like I was an instrument of God to help them see the beauty of life. However, when it is my turn to feel down, I look at the stars, the sky or just pause for awhile, think hard and ask God for a message which can help me.

Today, this is what I found…

I’ve met and still remember some people in the past who literally have tons of excuses for not being able to “DO SOMETHING” even when they know that people or a team is counting on them. I am not perfect either so I know I would have used excuses too when I feel bad. But hey! my new motto should be… NO MORE DRAMA, LET’s DO IT!


A look at celebrations in the past

There is always something good that happens to us no matter how serious life gets. And for me, one way to make me feel good is to remember how I’ve spent my life and how I want to spend it for years to come.
It’s already the middle of March and tomorrow, March 21 is the start of the Arian’s birthdates. So how did I celebrate my special day in the past years?

O yes… my Chocolate birthday cake. I so loved the design I didn’t want to cut the cake.

And of course, the fun happened at home with the people I care about. Smile with tongue out

These are not everybody who came that night but it was hella fun because Joan got sooooo drunk!
The next year was pretty much exciting too. I can’t remember if this was already my birthday cake. But as I went through my pile of picture folders, I realized I had a real cake that my friends Roms, Mich and I shared!

And of course, another celebration with my closest friends!

I think those were some of the most eventful birthday celebrations I had because I couldn’t find a single picture for my 2009 birthday. I was O- Prego and it wasn’t a good time to take pictures when it looked like I had eaten a whole watermelon.

So 2010… I didn’t have a birthday cake. But, he looks sweet enough to pass for a chocolate cake! Smile
And Of course, came the stressful work years which were lightened up by the workmates I love.

Things changed for the better. And life, though it gets more complicated as I add a year to my life also gets more meaningful. Looking back at every year that passed either gives us accomplishments or lessons that make us better or worse. It’s up to you to choose which path to take.
This year, I will add another meaningful event in my life.


FAIRYTALES… in the making

2:58 AM gem 0 Comments

Growing up when I was a kid was watching Disney movies about princesses and princes. For sure everyone would attest that they once dreamed of having a life like in the fairytales. Listening to this mix brings back the dreams I had then. It gives me that feeling that there is something good to expect in life. But then, I also remembered being told in school, and even in literature that life is nothing like the fairytales. People told me that I should wake up to reality that life is hard and that’s really how it is.

For years, they made me believe them. They made me forget how happy it was to dream and expect something grand. I know whoever instilled that in my mind was just being concerned so I wouldn’t be disappointed in life. Or maybe, they once dreamed of living a life with royalties but ended being disappointed themselves… who knows.

HK_Visit 246Listening to this brought back my childhood dreams. I realized the years of hope that I deprived myself of. We are all in our own fairytales. And if we dream hard enough and work hard on it, we decide what ending our story would be. Fairytales happen everyday… falling in love, marrying the one you love, getting a job, travelling to places unknown, being loved by your parents, working hard to see the ones you love happy…  finding treasures (by means of your income)… exploring the world (by the knowledge you get from school), we are all in a FAIRYTALE. And at this very moment, a soundtrack is being created for each of us. So pause for awhile and listen… looking at your life right now, what music will you hear? Sad? Exciting? Horrifying? Sweet? Happy? If it’s not as pleasant as you want it to be then its about time you WAKE UP to what’s really out there. Its a reality that we all need to work on our fairytale. Don’t STOP and NEVER forget that we have a Happy Ending to look forward to if you just BELIEVE!

I am thankful for the stories and the music of Walt Disney. I believe that they were made not just for children but they were made to teach the adults that to enjoy life, we must look at it in the eyes of a child. If you were told before to forget about your dreams, it’s never too late to go back and get it.
