It’s Not About Me

For the past weeks or was it months (at least that’s how it felt like), I have this empty feelings about my IG account. Now if you know me personally, you would know how much I love photography. But then it came to a point where all I see are people posting photos every day…

Which Side Are You?

Has it ever occurred in your life where you asked yourself if you are on the wrong side of the fence? Just a few hours ago, I had this dream. In my dream, I was still in school. In a particular class, there were a few of us that were not chosen to be included…

Be Thou My Vision

Do you believe that we have to give up something so we can be intentionally better at another thing? The same way with giving up certain luxuries of our lives, whether it be luxury in the form of the flesh, how we live and work and how we entertain ourselves so that we can be…

What’s Your Routine?

Ah the constant struggle with the busyness of life. It’s this daily thing to stay with a routine, like a clockwork.

Finding My Circle

The past few days have been quiet for me, literally. I have been racking my brains and tugging at my heart hoping I’ll come up with something to write about. But then, my writing is not all about made up stories or forcing myself to come up with some “feel good moments” or “I don’t…

One Day

Busy. If busy is not the most used word, what do you think would it be? Suppose that you are only given just one more day to live – what would you do? I think it would make a big difference if we were given the chance to know this in advance. The problem is,…
