Time is ticking and it’s almost 12 midnight. I’m still awake though. Guess what? I’m busy with my balloons. Yea, that’s right I’m blowing them one by one till my mouth is about to burst and I’m loosing air. Hehehe Just kidding! Well, I’m so grateful that I bought a balloon pump. So here I am now, inflating my balloons. You might be wondering why. Well, it’s my Tita’s birthday the day after tomorrow and I wanna surprise her. I really hope that she will enjoy this mini birthday surprise 🙂
Here are my Balloons!
I’ll be hiding it for now in my closet.
If you ask me what word I would love to hear today. It is no other than the word “Beautiful.”
I just love hearing this word. It makes me feel Beautiful somehow. Not that I am vain or something but there is nothing so special than hearing someone says Beautiful to you. When I think of something Beautiful, I don’t just limit it to something seen as attractive and pretty but rather I think what is inside also counts. It is important to look at the beauty of of what you see.
I remember Audrey Hepburn says “For Beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.” This quote reminds me to fill in my thoughts with beautiful ones so it may reflect my actions and words.
Also in Philippians 4:8 It says, “You’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things that are true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious- the best not the worst; the Beautiful not the ugly; things to praise not things to curse.”
Anyways, I’m having my Beautiful playlist and these are the songs I chose:
-Beautiful by Patrick Nuo
-#Beautiful by Mariah Carey
-What makes you Beautiful by One Direction
-You’re Beautiful by James Blunt
-Just the way you are by Bruno Mars
What’s ur fave song that makes you feel Beautiful??
I remember this quote, “If your gonna dream anyway, Dream Big” and now I realize what this mean. This time I’m at my peak, I believe alot of things happen when yourat your twenty something age. It’s time to make our DREAMS come true. Gone are the days that we only dream, this time is the time to make things happen. Chasing our dreams is not that easy but it is worth it. I always keep in mind that I only live once so I got to live my life to the fullest with no regrets. If I don’t work for my dreams then when will I do it?? Tomorrow? The next day? When I’m on my thirties and etc? Then the next thing I know is that I’m old and my days are counting and my life is wasted. That is so not happening. I believe God gave us this time here on earth to live it cause the time will come that we are gonna die.
Today, I was thinking of my dreams and they were so ordinary and it’s not even that challenging. Then, I open up my mind and let my imagination soar. I was like flying up above the sky. I remember my deams were just what I thought I can only reach. It’s like I’m putting limits to what I can do. Then, I decided to think out of the box and to really Dream Big. This time I’m super excited. I’m making life goals and I wanna do my best to reach it cause I only live once so I wanna live it the best way I can. I believe I can.
Recently, my spiritual faith is wavering to the point of becoming dry. What I mean is that it’s not the same as before. I feel like there is something lacking. I do read the Bible daily but it’s becoming a routine. What I feel this time is different compared to the way I felt with my first encounter reading God’s Words. It’s like I’m loosing the sparks I felt before when I first get to know God’s Words. I Iong and thirst more for God’s words. This time my relationship with God seems unstable and my heart is not at peace. So I decided to buy this book “God’s Whispers to a Woman’s Heart.” I wanna hear God speak to my heart. I want to renew my spirit again and again. I wanna continue my journey on seeking God and getting to know Him. I do believe there is still more that I need to know and learn from God. I pray that my faith would be stronger than ever.
I’m kinda having fun watching this show “How I Met Your Mother.” To be honest, I’m not really into this kind of shows before since there are more of sexual scenes but then as I reach adulthood and maturity I somehow understood what it’s all about. I still wouldn’t recommend this show for youngsters out there. It needs parental guidance for young viewers.
Anyways, I’m glad I watched it at the right time which is this time since I’m at the point of my life where in I’ll be seeking for relationships and I’m able to relate to the show. It kinda intrigues me how Ted Mosby will finally meet his wife. This show is really funny and it’s all about relationship and friendship.
Being an adult is never easy. Gone are the days where we could just act immaturely and people would understand and be more patient. When your an adult, you’ve got to be accountable with every actions and words you said. Today, I faced a conflict with someone. I unintentionally hurt her with my words I spoke carelessly. I thought it was just nothing that I just opened up and said it but then it did affect her. From now on, I’ve got to be sensitive in every word I say and think before I talk. What helps me alot is thinking about the golden rule “Do not do unto others what you don’t want others to do unto you.”
Also, there are alot of childish behavior that should be renewed to be a better adult. When we were still a child, we may tend to insist, resist or even make debates as if we know what we are doing. At that time, it is still negotiable and people understands that she doesn’t know what he or she is doing.But this time in adulthood, there are consequences that you have to face in everything you do. We can’t just say that I didn’t understand what I am doing cause that would be a lame excuse. When one has a job, there is a risk of being fired when you absent mindedly don’t know what you are talking about and to whom you are talking to. It’s best to be extra careful.
There are still alot of things to learn and improve as I step on the stage of adulthood.
People say I’m futuristic, somehow it is true. I do want to contantly remind myself not to dwell so much in the future cause it lives me with expectations and may lead to frustrations. I really don’t know what the future might bring but I believe God is in control. I trust Him. Let His will be done.
What do you think is the opposite of loneliness? It’s probably being in a relationship. Okay to make things clear I’m talking about being in a relationship from these category of family, friends or even a lover. But how come even if I got great relationship with my family and friends, there is still something lacking. Oh so I see, does that mean what’s the missing piece is a lover? I tried to deny this but there is no use. I’m in my young adulthood stage and according to Eric Erickson, “It’s the stage of intimacy versus isolation.” So do I have to be in a relationship with someone? The answer is yes and no.
It’s a yes because it’s normal. Even lovebirds needs each other cause they are a pair. And let’s trace back in the Bible from the book of Genesis that Adam felt lonely and so God created Eve as his partner. Also, ones heart will yearn for that soulmate if ever he or she is for a married life. On the otherhand, it’s a no or shall I say not yet. But why, that’s because in life just think what are you gonna do after you meet that someone. The next thing is family cause this love will bear fruit to children. And are you ready? Seriously, I think you better check your priorities. Is it career first then love? It would be great to be in a stable job when you are gonna be in a relationship so that everything is ready and set. Well, you choose. As for me I choose to focus on one thing at a time and it’s my career. I think it’s best to work on the right time cause there is a season for everything. Just hold on to God’s time.
How about you what do you choose? Anyways, let’s live our life wisely with no regrets!
I can’t help myself on this. There is something that I’ve got to do. Recently, I’ve been so distracted about this guy I’m attracted to and I just can’t focus anymore. It reached to the point that it’s becoming an idol in my heart and my relationship with God is at stake.
As time goes by, it keeps getting worse. I tried to brush it off but the thoughts comes back. I don’t know what to do anymore. This emotions I’m feeling is hard to control. But I believe only God can help me with this problem I’m facing. I decided to pray for this and take this matter on God’s hands. I began to search the net maybe I’m not alone and other people also faced this problem. Then I reached this site called “setapartgirl.” At last, someone has understood what I feel right now. It’s not just me. I’m not alone.
I got an advice and prayer from the site. It goes like this, “The best thing you can do when you feel attracted to a guy is to immediately give your feelings to God: Lord, thank you for the qualities I see in this guy. Please take my emotions and guard them. Enable me to keep my heart protected for my future husband. If it is Your desire that I enter a relationship with this guy, then I leave the details in Your hands. May I not manipulate or grow impatient, but allow You to remain in complete control. You will be faithful. You care more about this area of my life than even I do.”
I’m just so happy that I found this site. It’s like God is speaking in my heart telling me trust Him more. Also, I learned that whenever those thoughts pops out again rather than I entertain it, It’s best to counterattack it with a prayer for other people who needs help. In this way, I can fight the enemy by prayer. This is a stategy for spiritual attack making the enemy lose the battle. I would definitely try this out. Thank goodness, I found a solution to this problem that distracts me.

Thoughts of being an adult cross my mind, should I consider myself a young adult?? I thought of it for a moment. And Yes, I feel like an adult. The right time has finally come. If you ask me my perspectives and basis of what being and adult is, I would sum it up with the word responsibility. I believe stepping into the world of adulthood entails one to be responsible enough to face the consequence of the actions being done. When we are still young, we don’t think of the future or consequence of our actions since are parents are always there for us but this is not the case. As we grow older, we are face with responsibilities. Let’s face it we can’t depend from our parents for the rest of our lives. Being aware of this reality for me marks the beginning of adulthood journey.
From school, we were being prepared for this moment of adulthood to come. Graduating from college is a great start to begin ones journey since one has to come out of his or her comfort zone and work. I would say parent’s guidance are very crucial when a child is still schooling. It’s a parent’s fullfillment to see their child achieve their dreams and become the person who they would want to be. At the same time, it might be a parent’s grief when their child wasn’t able to finish studying for factors such as being in an early relationship which results to unplanned family or financial problems. I think adulthood is a long journey and there is still a lot more lessons to learn.
