We start here

I murmur through my thoughts

Whisper through the winds

My heart felt the rush of joy , of excitement as I would embark a journey within me .

Searching the deepest voice of my soul . Unfolding the face of my heart .

Here I write ,I express my vulnerability ..

Join me as we wonder through my mind

post

Goodbye note

I must write about you , our path have crossed when I was deeply wounded of a love that played me .

You were charming ,persistent and kind . I shut my doors multiple times but you kept on knocking ..

Like a stroke of lighting you have unarmed me …allowed my shield to go down .. I have embraced and romanticize this foolishness .

When summer came you have changed I felt your coldness and I know its time to part ways .

Its been months since our path have ended , but still … and yet …

There are times that my heart yearns to hear your soft voice .. the naugtiness of your thoughts .. I miss you and the routines

It was a good while it lasted.. sunrise will soon come .. I must move forward…I will cherish the memories think of them once in awhile but I won’t linger .

It is time to walk on …straight on ..

Goodbye You

Letting Go

I cut the string
Let lose of the grip

I am letting you go.

I stopped the fantasy

And face reality

I am letting you go

Moving forward

Never looking back

I am letting you go

I bow my head , dried my tears

Put on a smile , whisper thank you for the lessons .

Moving forward ,onward to the sun of hope ,winds of joy and rainbow of serenity.

I have let you go

Affirmation (thoughts of my soul )

I bow down my head before mother earth thanking her for the gift of new day.

I thank her for the air I breathe and for the emotions that I have felt.

As I breathe positive thoughts ,I am breathing out bondage of attachments .

Attachments that can cause pain, for I OWN NOTHING and NOTHING OWNS ME.

I breathe in Love and breathe out situations that I don’t have any control .

As I start my weekend I choose to breathe positive energy and think Mindful thoughts ..

Have a blissful weekend

Brave ,Beautiful and Different

  • “Being different isn’t a bad thing. It means you’re brave enough to be yourself.” – Luna Lovegood ( Harry Potter Deathly Hallows )

Intoduction :

Last Sunday the 21st of March was Down Syndrome Day to honor this day and as part of the awareness campaign schools and all over social media encourages everyone to wear two different kinds of socks . This day is called “gekke sokken dag” or as translated in englisg crazy socks day . This is to symbolize that IT IS OKEY TO BE DIFFERENT .

Yesterday ( 23rd of March)

It was one of those working days but yesterday gave me some take away to ponder.

Alice my 5 years playmate ( I refer her as my playmate ) along with her sister Aude came to me running as I arrived at thier house . The girls wore two unpaired socks of course I know why…

Alice : Jeeee I am wearing two different socks because it is crazy socks day at my school and Aude too.

Me: ooooh that looks fun .. and do you know why you are wearing those socks ?

Alice : yes , because SOMETIMES IT IS OKEY TO BE DIFFERENT my teacher told us that .

Me : indeed .. that is nice Alice ..

She was about to wear her shoes .. then she stop mid-way look at me and said ” well if is is okey to be different why hide it with a pair of shoes?”

She stopped turn to me and said ” I should wear unpair of shoes too with that everyone will know that IT IS OKEY TO BE DIFFERENT ”

She then go on picked two different kinds of shoes

Reflection :

To a child its is just the way it should be …But to the society that we are existing we should always be reminded that everyone of us is unique .

We must learn to respect and honor our differences whether it is the physical attributes or emotional development.

We must never forget to EMBRACE THE UNIQUENESS IN US .

TO All of US .. BE BRAVE WE ARE BEAUTIFUL IN OUR OWN WAY

Morning Affirmation

I bow down to mother earth for she showered me with breath and new life today .

I am grateful to witness the sunrise and hear the birds sing .

As I embark a new day, let my soul be at rest, my mind be mindful on the words I utter .

May my heart be filled with kindness to understand and be patience towards others .

May the people that matters to me be protected by His divine powers . May they start thier day with a smile and joy in their hearts

I breath in positive energy and breath out the worries on things that I have no control of .

Good morning !

Journals of Happiness : Sharing Joy (Moonwalkers89 way)

Introduction

I am starting to write moments that I love to remember . In each events ,situations there is that specific emotions that is connected .

Today my Journal of Happiness goes to the simple joy that The Moonwalkers89 shared.

The Story

As I have mentioned in my previous blog ” Moonwalkers” is group of individuals who were highschool classmates and have been reconnected after 30 years .

Each one of them has this unique beauty , strength , talent and wits . Despite of the years that they have been apart the sense of connectivity still burns within them .

They have made to the point that their reconnection would have meaningful purpose . Thus , they have choosen to served the vulnerable communities in their own ways.

These community activities paved the way in strengthen thier relationships from being good friends to becoming families .

No distance too far for those who wanted to be together ..

Community Services as an act of Reconnection

“So long as we love we serve; so long as we are loved by others, I would almost say that we are indispensable; and no man is useless while he has a friend.”

-Robert Louis Stevenson

A quote from goodreads.com

It all started with an informal conversations in between the karaoke and sea breeze of Cabadbaran city . The passion to serve was there but of course there was a question of resources.

As the discussion go deeper the desire grew. They made a pact to meet again on 2022 but for the meantime they must Keep the fire burning through community services .

Each one of them shared its own idea . Allowed their own expertise to contribute whatever project they are in . Everything is being discussed and though the budget is tight they still pursue with enthusiasm . They believe they are ONE

Whether it is feeding for the Lumads ( indigenious group) ,Elderly or the forgotten ones of society they serve with their hearts .

They often said that “the community services did not only filled the hearts of the needy but it has also strengthen thier friendship .It makes them feel like “they Belong” a quote that Fatima always uses .

At the end it is not about how much but it is more of how they made a small step towards doing meaningful act .

Reflection

If we choose to be serve with purpose and developed a friendship founded with respect , love, an open clear communication and admiration the friendship will thrive .

Respect towards each other helps us bridge the growing pains that we encounter along the way . Love makes us more understanding towards the shortcoming of the others . An open and clear communication results to endless hours of worthwhile stories which are interwine with laughters and the feeling of belongingness .

Random morning thoughts

Each day I am thankful for the lessons and gifts that life showed me

Choose to be silent when words are unnecessary .

Choose to smile when situations are worth pouting for . Be grateful for the lessons of the struggles .

Choose to stand gracefully on things that you believe .

Believe that no matter how dark ,difficult the situation looks like you always have a choice to fight and stay positive .

Never regret but instead reflect and learn.

Take a breath , close your eyes and be still in the silence of peace …

Choice is a gift that we have to honour and treasure.

Breathe and I

In times of my sadness breathe consoles me .

In hour of my anxieties he calms me

Breathe is a friend that holds my hand when I am scared , embraces me when I am lonely

He reminds me of my tact whenever I want to burst into unnecessary words .

As long as I am breathing I know I am not alone ..

Breathing is the greatest pleasure in life. – Giovanni Papini
