Your heart will fix itself.

It’s your mind you need to worry about. Your mind where you locked the memories, your mind where you have kept pieces of the ones that hurt you, that still cut through you like shards of glass.

Your mind will keep you up at night, make you cry, destroy you over and over again.

You need to convince your mind that it has to let go.. because your heart already knows how to heal.

Picking Friends Wisely.

Choose a friend who will inspire you to be better each day. Choose someone who will bring out the best in you.

Nowadays, some people (mostly young ones), can’t seem to pick their friends wisely. But I’m not against that, of course. Because sometimes, we learn how to choose after some trials occured. Pick a friend who values your worth; don’t befriend someone just because you’re lonely or you’re always feeling unaccompanied.

This morning when I came to my work, I was washing my coffee cup when I saw two kids. The first one was on the other side of the road then he saw his buddy, I think. I looked at their expressions and they were smiling from ear to ear; just because they saw each other and happens to go to school at the same time.

I like friendships like that. I mean, they’re not even talking to each other yet but the excitement was so visible from their faces. Hopefully, I can find someone like that. I want a friend who will stick to my side no matter what happens. Of course, I’ll return the favor. You see, it takes two to a relationship to work. Give and take; a rule to tighten your bond.

Miss Na Kita, Aking Kapatid.

I still remember your face when I tried to spoon-feed you the herbal drink which our father made. You were looking at my despaired eyes then with a blank expression that’s torturing me so much.

Whenever that scenario flash into my mind, I couldn’t help myself but to silently cry recalling those bittersweet times. Didn’t know that will be the last time I will see you face to face.

As I look at you moreover, my heart aches. I was silently praying that God would quickly heal your hopeless state because we couldn’t just bear to see you crying so much in agony.

One night, I walked outside of the house and lift up my gaze at the starry sky. You were oxygenated at that time, I think. I was crying, and pouring out my distress before the Lord.

I beseech, “Lord, if this unpleasant situation will always happen to my brother, might as well withdraw the life that’s in him. I can’t see him suffering anymore.”

You might say I’m too heartless. But no. It’s because if he dies in this world, there’s another life that’s waiting for him. Not just life. But eternal life. And in heaven, he doesn’t have to cry in pain anymore. There’s no more sickness awaiting him there, but pure joy.

Then few days later came, the angels beckoned him. It’s time to go home. We were heartbroken. But we know it’s for the greater good.

I know you’re up there in heaven, blissfully smiling. I really can’t wait to see you. How many times did I already said that I miss you, my dear hermano? I lost count. Today was supposed to be your 29th birthday but yeah, who am I kidding? You’re already gone in this world. But, thank you for being one of the most wonderful people I met in my life. You inspire me, Kuya. Te amo ♡

Things To Ponder.

In my 17 years of existence, one of the things I learned how to live life right is being filled with positive thoughts and having a good attitude. Well, yes, not all the time you can keep up with that mindset but there’s no harm in trying, right? After all, it’s for the sake of your own good too.

There’s these times that the people close to me seems so frustrated that they just spit out indelicate words without having second thoughts. It’s hurting me, big time. Not knowing our tongue is powerful enough to break someone’s heart, they just say whatever they want to say.

One of the things that saddened me too was backstabbing each other’s backs. Doing it all the time without having consideration. Name it they’re siblings, close friends, relatives, or whatever relations they had with each other. They’ll say that ‘that person’ is narrow-minded, when the truth is, they’re the ones who’s really narrow-minded.

This is so disheartening. Why hate when you can love your neighbor as yourself? Why say harsh words when you can pray for that soul? WHY WASTE TIME THINKING MALICIOUS THINGS WHEN IT’S MORE LIGHT IN THE HEART TO HAVE HONORABLE THOUGHTS?

Widen Your Understanding.

I’m that girl who can’t put her feelings into words. Because I’d rather not to speak it up to somebody and gains criticism at the end. I still remember one time I opened up myself to someone and that person said to me, “why are you thinking like that? You know, you shouldn’t feel like that because blah blah..”

It pains me when I always hear those kind of statement. Like, am I not required to feel downhearted? I’m still a human. With stacks of emotions.

So please, whoever’s reading this right now, try to understand other people more. Especially the depressed ones. They’re in the middle of great abyss. Don’t question their way of thinking. Rather encourage them. Life their spirits up, that’s what they needed the most. Not criticisms.

My Dear Friend.

I asked her if she was okay,
And she said, “I’m fine, I swear.”
But when I looked into her eyes,
I clearly saw her struggles there.

She quickly looked away,
And tried her best to smile.
She said softly, “I’ll make it through this,
it’s just taking me a while.”

I knew she was hurting,
And I knew her pain was deep.
But she felt the burden was hers,
And hers alone to keep.

I reached out to her,
and our hands entwined.
I said, “I love you, my friend.
So your burdens are also mine.”

Where no sorrows ever told
Where nobody will grow old
Where the pain of heart are no more
Where the orphans has a home
Where nobody feels alone
That’s the place my soul is longing for

Where the angels sings so sweetly without cease
And the rivers of joy ever flow
Where my savior calls His own
Where I’ll stand before the throne
That’s the place I’m longing to go

Where there’ll be no broken home
Where no discord ever sown
Where no sins ever lies at the door
Where no loved ones ever stray
And we watch them slip away
That’s the place my soul is longing for

Where no tears ever fall
Where death angels never call
Where the crate never hangs on the door
Where the hungry never cry
Where we’ll never wave goodbye

That’s the place my soul is longing for
Where the angels sings so sweetly without cease
And the rivers of joy ever flow
Where my saviour calls His own
Where I’ll stand before the throne
That’s the place I’m longing to go
That’s the place I’m longing to go

Always be the best person you can be. Be kind even when you’re tired. Be understanding even when you’re angry. Do more than you’re asked, and don’t asked for anything in return. Don’t silently expect anything either. Listen when someone talks, and really listen too, stop just thinking of how you’ll reply. Tell people that you love them and that you appreciate them. Go out of your way to do things for people.

Be the greatest person you can possibly be and when you mess up, make up for it in the next moment or minute or day. One thing you should never do? Never spend your time trying to prove to anybody that you’re great, your actions will speak for themselves and we only have limited time on this earth, don’t waste it. If someone doesn’t see your light, don’t worry. Like moths, good people are attracted to flame and to light, and they will come.

A Gift Called Life.

Today, I’m officially 17 years old.

I’m grateful that God gave me another year to live this life. For the past years, I have this mindset that always reminds me that I’m worthless. That there’s no sole reason to live. But that changed when God finally opened my blind eyes. He made me realized that He gave me life because I have a purpose. This purpose is the reason why I keep on going.

In the past, I’d always think that maybe I should give up on my Christian life. Because the influence of the world was stronger than what I imagined. Yet God wouldn’t let such a thing. Something inside me keeps on pulling me back to Him. I can’t turn my back and face the scheming world of the devil. The latter would always put worldly things inside my head and tells me that I should do what I want in order to be truly happy.

But thank God, grace won.

I realized that you don’t need to do wrong things just to be happy. Because true joy is found in God. I found joy in living this life having Him as the center of it. My life then was dull and pointless. But when He came, I just found my life worth living.

Thank You Lord for giving this gift called life. For now, my only goal is to finish this race and to do what I’ve been assigned to. With God beside me, of course.

 

Since Jesus Came Into My Heart.

What a wonderful change in my life has been wrought
Since Jesus came into my heart;
I have light in my soul for which long I have sought,
Since Jesus came into my heart.

Since Jesus came into my heart,
Since Jesus came into my heart;
Floods of joy o’er my soul like the sea billows roll,
Since Jesus came into my heart.

I have ceased from my wand’ring and going astray,
Since Jesus came into my heart;
And my sins which were many are all washed away,
Since Jesus came into my heart.

I’m possessed of a hope that is steadfast and sure,
Since Jesus came into my heart;
And no dark clouds of doubt now my pathway obscure,
Since Jesus came into my heart.

There’s a light in the valley of death now for me,
Since Jesus came into my heart;
And the gates of the City beyond I can see,
Since Jesus came into my heart.

I shall go there to dwell in that City I know,
Since Jesus came into my heart;
And I’m happy, so happy as onward I go,
Since Jesus came into my heart.
