Yes, You Can.

July 1, 2014

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 […]

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, […]

Stuck Like Me? Here Are My Realizations — Hope They Help You, Too

March 19, 2014

Like I said in another post just now, I think I’m going through some form of quarter-life crisis. I know that I’m a fish out of water in this work from home career, and that I believe that I belong out there, working on the waters of counseling. My Facebook Wall may be a scarred […]

A Collection Of Life Lessons Learned This Weekend

February 3, 2014

  After sharing the recent upheavals in my decision-making and career life, I tried, for a few days, to just chill and settle for the work that I have at the moment, and not really hustle to get back to having an 8-hour-a-day job. I didn’t feel super with that trial thing with the UK […]

Work For The Lord, And Not For Man

October 28, 2013

I have something to confess: I sometimes work weekends. While I am a rabid advocate of never-working-weekends, there were times when I didn’t quite understand my 9 to 5 boss’ expectations of me, and it was only last week, when a “train wreck” of sorts happened to me, and I received much-needed coaching on what […]

What Setbacks?

September 18, 2013

0 Comments

It’s always easy to whine and convince yourself, over and over, that you don’t have what it takes to reach your dreams. In fact, we humans have elevated self-deprecation into a twisted art form that a lot of us easily have “self-esteem deflation” as a hobby. However, that’s just counterproductive. Instead of spurring yourself onwards […]

“If one thing stands in the way of creative expression, it is fear.” This is a line from the piece, “The Paralysing Effect of Fear,” an entry in the book “Creative And Christian!” by Leen La Rivière. The line I quoted above already speaks so much: if you’ve experienced how it is to face a […]

There is a saying that goes, “It takes an entire village to raise a child.” In like manner, no one can go at this thing called Life alone and on his own. In fact, not a few authors, writers and Life Observers have written: “Life doesn’t come with an instruction book. That’s why we have […]

I’m not sure who taught modern-day man to expect perfection out of an imperfect world, but I sure believed that LIE since the day I could reason, think, and reason out. I say that it is a lie, because, in my 29 years of existence, “Perfection” has never happened to me or anyone else I […]

It’s Saturday. A day to destress, for most. For those who have the brain space to dream, this is the day to do it. By now, you’re probably planning to go out, have fun, watch a movie, or kick back a few drinks with some friends. But if you’re not doing anything else, how about […]

The Pursuit Of Happyness

June 10, 2013

This is a title of a Will Smith movie a few years back, but for today, I wanted this to be the theme of the day. At the age of 29, I’ve noticed one thing that ties human beings together: this dogged pursuit of that thing called “happiness.” It seems as if humans are hopelessly […]
