7 Rules of Life

Image
1. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.
2. What others think of you is none of your business.
3. Time heals almost everything, give it time.
4. Don't compare your life to others and don't judge them. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
5. Stop thinking too much, it's alright not to know the answers. They will come to you when you least expect it.
6. No one is in charge of your happiness, except you.
7. Smile. You don't own al the problems in the world.

Listening to your Intuition

Image
They said that intuition never go wrong. I am not perfect in predicting things but when it comes to listening to my own gut feeling -- I'm always RIGHT. Deciding which road to take is really challenging. I also take consideration of my feelings if this will looks good on me or perhaps knowing exactly what I wanted.

Sometimes its incorrect, but practicing on how you can able to use your intuition effectively is really powerful. If you are not an expert in a certain field, always seek a second opinion and listen to them. Most of the times, I often go out, make most of my time listening to myself and the interesting part of it is to - investigate more on each situations.

How would you know if someone is lying or being dishonest? - Its really hard to predict but always listen to yourself. You only have two options whether - you should leave them or keep on going. Focus on your particular belief and make the right choices.

Guilt Free. Remember, when there's smoke...there's fire...

Caracol 2013: Makati City's Festival of Life and Color

Image
This is my second time to witnessed the annual event held in Globe Event Grounds, Circuit Makati last Sunday, February 24. Caracol is derived from a Spanish term which means "shell" and the festival's message is to explore the wonders and beauty of nature. This is also one good way of promoting public awareness to save and conserve our environment and natural resources. In line with Make It Happen. Make it Makati campaign, Caracol Festival is an early treat for 2013 by Ayala Land, bringing its best in business, lifestyle, entertainment and culture.

Started with a grand parade of various group and barangay in Makati City, Caracol Festival 2013 has its own version of dance and costume competition wherein each group which composes of students in elementary, highschool and barangay clusters performed with their own dynamic routine aiming to address the awareness of protecting our environment.

Freedom and Being Free

Image
This post is not about EDSA Revolution or People Power (just kidding). It's about having the greatest gift of all which is - being free as a human being :) In our lives, we always make choices on how we are going to deal with our daily lives. Sometimes we got confused on what brings us happiness (can be a material or non-material) but here is what I've read a while ago... If you would like to know what truly make us free, first is to know ourselves better.

Knowing ourselves more actually will give you more awareness and self-acceptance. Gaining all the love that you wanted from the people around you makes us feel secure, thus, knowing if we are willing to compromise in exchange of happiness will lead us to confusion.

Always follow your intuition and pray for guidance. It's really effective. Yun lang, emo lang.

Saturdate with my BFF

Image
I cancelled our Clark adventure (Philippine Hot Air Balloon Fiesta) because of unfavorable weather condition last Friday. Instead, I stayed at home recuperating and am glad that my BFF visited me last Saturday.





We decided to spent the rest of the afternoon at Marikina Riverbanks, few blocks away from my home. I tried this cheap massage chair for only P25 (10 minutes) and went window shopping. we took our early dinner at Chowking and opened our fortune cookies. Mine was all about an unexpected surprise... "Life will soon bring you an unexpected surprise"thinking that March is coming soon (my birthday month), and I am really excited. Hope it could be something that I wished for a longer time (hmmm wild guess?)...





and my BFF's fortune cookie says "Not until one raises one's own children does one appreciate one's parents' kindness" - very timely because she is a mother of 3 gorgeous kids :) hahaha.





My goal also that day was to look for a sofa bed. We check…

Weird Dream

Last night I was sick with cold and flu (which I think I had allergy asthma), I have dream that I was working abroad.

The setting is quite weird, I was walking on the sidewalk looking for a particular place until I woke up realizing that I was dreaming. And, ended up thinking of that place (hahaha)

I know its quite normal specially when our brain is normally functioning and our body temperature affects a lot and I know this is unexplainable. Or maybe I used to be working all day and my body had missed it hahaha :)

Whatever it is, I'm doing well right now :) Thank God.

Negativity, Go away!

There are times that we don't (always) get along with some people around us, oftentimes, we just simply ran away in most difficult times and making ourselves feel uncomfortable, unhappy and most of the times we feel insecure about the situation. How are we going to unblock these negativity happening around us? -- Focus.

It would be better if you just embrace the power of kindness within yourself and try to strengthening your inner values. Through this, there are issues that you cannot control but from yourself, can turn it into a positive event.

Take a deep breath if you are in bad mood and simply open your eyes, let go off the negativity.

And always wear a SMILE

Partying in our generation is really different specially when you are working in BPO wherein huge celebration is prepared before the year ends.

Dressed in true 90s fashion, the program was hosted by our favorite DJs Chico and Delamar with Gino. The crowd couldn’t help but scream like awestruck teens when Stagecrew performed ‘90s hits like Pretty Fly for a White Guy, Sweet Child of Mine and Santeria! But aside from the songs, the ‘90s was also popular for its signature moves. The internationally acclaimed Philippine All-Stars brought back MC Hammer’s Can’t Touc…
