0 Comments

  If there’s anything ever-present in life, it’s drama. Well, some people say it’s “Change.” But for me, one thing I realize over and over, is that DRAMA is a more ever-present factor in one’s life. I’ve mentioned a few times that I decided to make a major turn in my career and go to […]

As soon as I arrived at my parents’ house, my mom introduced me to their new puppy. He’s a smart one, my mom gushed, and she promptly told me stories of his antics. I guess it’s the Psychology graduate in me that took over, because I got challenged with wanting to potty-train the doggie before […]

No, it’s not National Mental Health Awareness Day. It’s not even Suicide Prevention or Self-Harm Prevention Day. I’m just click-hopping for the sake of looking for inspiration before I get down to working, when I saw this PostSecret Card again:   Like this card says, you do have a choice. Whether you’re within the Bell […]

A Knock On The Upside Of My Head

June 24, 2014

1 Comment

I’ve always been fascinated by the Holocaust and life in concentration camps. When I first came across an East Asian country that’s isolated and is a threat to the region, I was gripped and fascinated. There was something not only jarring and shocking about the level of isolation that breeds cannibals, but there’s something deeply […]

June 18, 2014

0 Comments

As a Virtual Assistant, I’ve crashed and burned countless of times throughout my career. I was rather surprised when I learned that this “phenomenon” is something that is rather common to a good majority of Virtual Assistants. In fact, I later learned that this is a pattern that also exists in Western freelancers and other […]

Life Isn’t Linear, So Go Chase Your Dreams!

May 23, 2014

0 Comments

  As a kid, I used to think of life as a linear process: You go to elementary school, graduate, go to high school, graduate, get to college, graduate, go to work. Or, you may want to get higher learning as you work. Or, in the case of Medical School, get a degree before you […]

Two Voices Of Regret, And One Key To Overcome Them

May 23, 2014

0 Comments

  “Regrets, I’ve had a few…” This is a line in that famous Frank Sinatra song, the one that’s killed quite a few karaoke fiends in the Philippines, “My Way.” But I’m not here to poke fun at its cultural/inside joke implications. I’m here to tell a story of two voices from three different people, […]

Live With A Deadline

When you have a deadline for something, you get pressured and you work your butt off to beat that deadline. If only the rest of life works that way. Most of us live life as if we’re going to live forever. So we never really say what we want to say, much less, what we […]

  No, this isn’t a horror story, though the title sounds like it. This is a story that many Filipinos may be able to relate to. This is a story that is common to our culture, because we’re simply so welcoming and so family-oriented. More than that, Filipinos are super non-confrontational. My neighbor and I […]

Last Sunday was Easter Sunday for most of us. Some of us chased bunnies and hunted eggs, while others preferred to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The Philippines celebrated the Holy Week. It was a time to wind down, a time to contemplate. Others went off to the beach. Others went to churches. And […]

On Decision-Making

April 15, 2014

0 Comments

So, having tackled fresh beginnings, a question was raised in my mind. I used to ask this question, and most of my teens to late adulthood were spent asking this question: “So how do you know which way to go?” Most of us go through life, just going through the motions: Go to school, graduate, […]

New Beginnings: A Fresh Start

April 15, 2014

1 Comment

Speaking of New Beginnings, I’d like to share something I’d realized. As a child, and even as a teenager, my father would always tell me that the Lord would only give a few chances to a person, and when He tires of a person’s misuse of his God-given talents, the Lord will take those talents […]
