A LookBack on my January-July 2017

I miss days like this. Days where I could be myself and just pour out all my thoughts here in my blog. I guess other pressing priorities took over in the last few months but I guess when you love something that much you’ll eventually find a way to go back to it one way or another. Maybe I don’t post as much like I used to but when I do I ensure that it all emanates from my heart and from the deepest recesses of my mind.

With that said, let me first recount the highlights of my 2017 and how it has been one hell of a ride that I would forever cherish 🙂

Learning the Difference between Holding on and Letting Go

There is a fine line between Learning the difference of Holding on and Letting go 😀

When to hold on..

When you are in a quandary as to whether to hold on or to let go,

analyze the situation you are in very carefully, very subjectively.

Use your mind and not your heart to evaluate the pros and cons of either decision.

Realize that your feelings and emotions can color your thoughts,

and you might end up making the wrong choice.

If you still see a glimmer of promise that it (the relationship or the situation you are in) can still work out,

then by all means, try your best to make it happen.

Sometimes we give up too easily without putting a fight.

There is really no easy way to live life;

you have to negotiate the hurdles in order to win the gold.

As they say, try and try until you succeed.

 

when to let go…

 

On the other hand,

you should be able to put your foot down and say,

“Enough is enough!” and disentangle yourself from the web of suffering and indecision before you reach the point of no return.

So, how can you tell when it is the time to let go?

It’s time to quit when the hurting is too much.

When your health (both mental and physical) is at stake.

When the disadvantages far outweigh the advantages.

When it dawns on you that it is a love that cannot be.

When you feel unneeded, unappreciated, unwanted, unloved.

When you start to feel chronically negative and ugly, and in fact are looking ugly.

When dark emotions of self-destruction or vengeance start to darken and harden your heart.

When you feel horribly bitter about life.

And when you feel it is a win-win situation for all, most especially for you, to call it quits.

So now after perusing over this,

I hope I was able to shed a little light on those jaded thoughts lingering in your mind 😀

just keep in mind that whatever you choose,choose for the better 😀

Of Headlines and Updates

I haven’t updated my blog for about 5 days already due to my continuous working days and also balancing this with some readings for school, jogging around the grounds of the Fort and mostly focusing on nourishing myself and becoming a better version of myself by reading some self help materials, opinion pages in the newspaper and also by being more conscious with the food that I intend to intake. I try to eat more healthier now by adding more of the greens, more fruits and less of the rice and carbohydrates in my meals.

Looking forward to a healthier lifestyle

We Accept the Love We think We Deserve.

We all have our own fair share of heartaches, butterflies in the pits of our stomachs and sometimes even tears welling down our faces thinking that it’s already the end of the road  for us. Well honey, it isn’t. Everything happens for a reason and sometimes these were all bound to happen. The good, the bad and the ugly. To mold you and shape you into the person you were destined to become. You deserve to be happy and to be loved unconditionally. Never settle for less than what you deserve because you are beautiful and unique just the way you are. Read this post from Thought Catalog.
