what are you giving?

If you’re giving bitterness to the world, then bitterness will come back to you. While if you give love to the world, love will come back to you.

Love is willing to give itself no matter the cost.

~Bro. George Gabriel

Today’s prayer: “Jesus, I open my heart to you. Fill me up with love so I can give love to the world.”



Goodnight, 2016!

Goodnight, 2016! Know that you have been my best, so far! Although there were down times, sad times, ganang wala namang perfect talaga. 

And so, as I turn the last page to this book (2016), I’d like to say my, kumbaga sa real book eh ‘Acknowledgments’.

Thank you to all who have made my 2016 a little brighter, happier, and positive than ever! πŸ€—

Good job and Goodnight, 2016! 😘

Hey, 2017! I’m ready!

Happy New Year! May God Bless us with a prosperous New Year! 

Pagmamahal at Respeto sa isa’t isa! \m/​



As of today: 32 origamis. 

For the past 31 days since the start of the year, I have been folding origami hearts and butterflies every day. Inside each folded paper, is a note of things I am grateful for, random good deeds I witnessed from random people I don’t even know, quotes that made me smile, or a touching one-liner message from a friend that day. I do that every single day.

It may seem easy for some. For me, there are times it’s not.
This challenge is teaching me to have an eye for things that I should be grateful for – grand or simple, big or small.

I may not look as happy as I sound like, but I really am. πŸ™‚
Let’s just say that I am just a pessimistic trying to be optimistic one origami a day, one day at a time. And no matter what I am going through, I’m still gonna keep on trying for 334 days more.

Aja to me!

Ganbarimasu pa! πŸ™ƒβ˜ΊοΈπŸ™ƒ

Today is the last page of a 365-paged book and tomorrow is the 1st blank page of a new one. Make today count and be sure to write a good one on your 1st page tomorrow. πŸ™‚

Iwanan na natin sa 2015 lahat ng dapat iwanan. Each new year is like a new project. Sabi nga pag na-roll off ka sa previous project, iwanan mo lahat ng di magandang experience pero dalhin mo sa next project lahat ng magandang lessons. πŸ™‚

Sa pagdating ng bagong taon, piliin mo kung ano sa 2015 ang kelangan iwan, at ano ang dadalhin sa 2016. Hindi required na lahat dala mo. Parang backpacking, bitbitin lang un mga mahalagang bagay.  And just like when I’m traveling, I always make sure I have enough camera space for new pics or memories- if I have to purge all pics from my camera phone, I will (wala naman kase sd card ang iphone para bilhan na lang ng bago). And as the year ends today, I’m going to empty my camera roll, to give space for new pics. Mas mahirap kase mag-delete ng pictures pag kelangan mo na. Tutal, na-upload ko narin naman halos lahat dito sa mga social media accounts ko. Hehe! Delete ko sila nang pikit-mata at pigil-hininga. 

Regrets. Do not even attempt to regret all that happened in 2015. Everything happens for a reason – things we failed to do, chances we did not take – there are reasons why. There were times I regretted meeting new people, but when I think of how they made me happy this year, I feel thankful instead. Each person is a blessing, some a lesson. And I am either a blessing or a lesson to them, too. 

🎢Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end..🎢 Yeah πŸ˜‰ -Closing Time, Semisonic

Tomorrow is the first blank page of a 366-paged book, a start of a new Life Series that has 12 new chapters to complete.

2015. I have lived. I have laughed so much. I have loved.. my life.

2016. I will live, love, and laugh even more. Aja! Ganbarou! πŸ™‚

Happy New Year! πŸ™‚
