An Avid Fan of Books

Featured Image: society6

I’ll tell you a story first.

When I was young, I don’t have any peers at school and I try to open up this struggle with my Mom.

The good thing about her is that, she is full of positivity and wisdom in life.

I remember, she told me that…

“What’s the point of making friends if later on, they will just stab you behind your back?”

Don’t get me wrong.

My Mom is not discouraging me to be a friend to anyone, she’s just telling me the reality that not everything we want, we could get and without any danger.

You see, there’s a lot of crimes anywhere you go, my Mom is just protecting me from any possible danger.

Fast forward, I started loving books not only that it gives me a lot of information that can be of a great help in the future, but I kinda feel that whenever I read books, I have some kind of imaginary friend who’s willing to help me grow as a person and to live a life worthwhile.

For the second time around, don’t get me wrong.

I have real friends. Just a small circle of friends and I honestly don’t consider them as peers. Friends feel more exclusive to me. πŸ’—

Enough of chatting!

Let’s begin what are the things that made me an avid fan of books!

Breadth of Knowledge & Experience

I honestly wouldn’t do blogging without have that two.

It took me years before I was able to go out of my comfort zone.

Thanks to them, this made me stronger, bolder and even more wiser which led me to pursue blogging for the reasons that I read tons of book already and been to many places.

And just recently, I had this feeling that maybe it’s about time to share what I have learned along with my journey as a single woman who does everything just to improve herself for a better future.

After all, there’s nothing more to lose.

I remember, our thesis advisor in college once told us that the best way to not forget what we’ve learned is to spread it and make it known.

And I guess, he was absolutely right!

These two things are the needed elements for you to succeed in life.

Take these two with you as you embark your life’s journey and I assure you, you won’t be persuaded by anyone because education with proper training is something we should be proud of.

Whatever happens, we all know what we’re doing and we appear to be more confident about ourselves.

My only advice for the young youth today is to never stop learning.

Always be hungry for knowlege.

Don’t exchange your education for greed and material possesions.

Live with purpose.

Don’t waste your time and energy for nothing.

Every single day is a chance to learn.

Don’t take it for granted and share it generously with others.

That’s the true essence of being a good samaritan.

You might have the two elements, but a person with no good values and caring for others won’t ever succeed.

Lastly, never ever forget our roots.

No matter how successful we already are, keep that humility in our heart and mind.

Also never forget the people behind our success.

Whoever that is, always be grateful for them and keep yourself grounded.

Thank you so much, RT Peeps for always taking the time to read my blog post.

Whatever: We Are One

Be it M/ F

Or

LGBTQ+

I guess, this is one of the most talk about topics worldwide. Though, LGBTQ+ is getting a lot more attention every single day, it isn’t fully accepted by our society yet. I know for a fact that everything gets even more complicated and confusing, but let us not forget to accept and appreciate our differences. After all, we are just equal in the image and likeness of the Lord. Instead of pointing out our differences and calling it awful, why not just support and appreciate one another?

Let me quote to you one of biblical verses that has something to do with our topic for today

30 “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’[a] 31 The second is this: β€˜Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b] There is no commandment greater than these.” 

Mark 12:30-31 (NIV)

All of us has a unique purpose in life and we cannot expect them to behave, react or even think the way we do. Others are no different from us ’cause everyone gets hungry, we breathe the same air, we live in one planet, and God would be happier if we will walk through life as one. No discrimation but only love and respect for one another.

Take note that for every photo I shared with you all isn’t mine. I only provide pictures just to give clarity about my topic. That’s all.

Soon!

I hope that through this sharing, we will be able to see diversity in a different light. More accepting and more humane.

Momentum

Featured Image: From This Website

” Just write anything

One thing I vividly recall about my schoolteacher in Journalism class way back in highschool.

We were ask to write an essay whatever that comes to mind.

At first, I thought he was insane but as I get older, I came to realize that what he meant by that is some sort of “momentum” like once your brain started working,

Everything just pops out to mind without realizing that you started to have a mental diarrhea.

A term used for most writers when they get plenty of ideas out of brainstorming.

I honestly thought that everything was such a waste of time and energy to start a topic without any idea.

But at the end of the day…

I have come to realize that great ideas usually come from uncertainty that when we free our mind to possibilities, that’s when we naturally write the most!

Here’s to an unexpected journey of mine as a blogger.

Insomniac

Featured Image: From This Website

is a person who suffers from insomnia

Since birth I already considered myself, Insomniac. For the reason that I often sleep short and can easily be awaken. Perhaps, that’s the reason why I am still short even today. *giggle*

Just to break the ice, are you happy having an inadequate sleep or always in sleep debt? Well, I hope not! For obvious reason, nobody likes the idea of being wide awake at night when everyone is already sleeping peacefully and soundly.

Well, the reason why I came up with this topic for today is because this is so timely, which I myself is currently experiencing.

To be honest, having an insomia is nothing new to me or to any other people out there. However, the side effects of not being able to sleep didn’t give much of an attention even today.

Anyway, as a newbie in this world of blogging, not only that I needed more time to be actively involved, but also needed to come up with various of topics ’cause only then will I be able to gather different sets of people around the globe. Of course, LGBTQ+ community are most welcome here. No discrimination ’cause all were given a privilege to share their own stories as well.


Let’s get started!

Insomnia by definition is a kind of sleeping disorder that is characterized by having a difficulty to sleep.

Isn’t it annoying if everything did not work for you to get asleep? I bet, I was not the only one who experienced that.

Mind you, having an insomia will not occur without any valid reasons, so let’s determine the real culprit behind it.

Below are some proven causes of insomia:

  • Meeting deadlines

Whether we admit it to ourselves or not, the word “deadline” often scares us out! Most especially if we’re having trouble balancing our life and at the same time, figuring out what works best which in the long run made it harder for us to rest our mind even at night.

In a nutshell: Do it a head of time. Make a time plan if you must.

  • Such a worrier

Sadly, despite the fact that some problems haven’t occurred yet, we already tortured ourselves by feeding a lot of negativity in our mind.

In a nutshell: Take it easy. Worrying woldn’t help. Do only what you are capable of doing.

  • Too much in take of caffeine

I know and I completely understand why coffee is also good for the brain. However, consuming it more than what’s neccessary is some form of self-sabotaging. Not only that the palpitation of your heart beats faster beyond the normal speed, but also it will keep you awake for the entire night.

In a nutshell: Only drink coffee between morning and afternoon. Camomile tea helps you relax and improves your sleeping habits if you regularly take it.

Insomia may not be of a big deal to you, but your body suffers the most! So please honor and respect your body. After all, we only have one life. On that note, it is never too late to correct and create a balance in your lifestyle.

PS: If you still cannot sleep, why not listen to “Insomia” music video🎡 of Craig David and enjoy the rest of the night. 😁 How about that? 😍

Video Game: Bad or Not

Featured Image: From This Website

Seriously, who doesn’t want to play?!


Everyone loves playing ’cause not only that it is fun, but it also frees us from all the stress we’re currently dealing with.

Now, let me go straight to the point, is video game a real bad thing?

Not at all!

I believe, everything is made for a good cause. The only thing that makes it bad is when a video game now rules your life! #addiction

I strongly believe that those who were getting more addicted by a certain video game are one, jobless; two, teenager; three, depressed; four, has social phobia; and many more.


My next question is, how will you overcome your addiction if you are one of them?

I’ll tell you real quick!

  1. If you are jobless right now, then don’t stop searching! And while you are in search of your passion and desire, make yourself busy. Do some chores. Fulfill something that you failed doing from the past. Always have a goal, even the smallest thing would do.
  2. If you are a teenager right now, I suggest that you take some time to improve yourself whether you want to develop a skill or hone your talent. Teenager is the best stage of life where you are supposed to enjoy and live a stress-free life! Besides, video game isn’t the only fun to do. Go out and explore! Learn to engage with people. Conquer your stage fright. Find and read a book that you enjoy most. Make friends. Study well. Just do what you must do as a young teenager. And if you failed, C’est La Vie! You are too young for you to be stressed-out, so might as well do not dwell on that so much.
  3. If you are currently depressed now, always remember that you are not alone. All around the globe, everyone gets to experience countless of highs and lows, so instead of comsuming all your energy from a game, why not use that energy for productivity. Isn’t it a good idea? Make use of your time. Make use of resources. Connect with people. Entertain yourself. Go out. Talk with nature. Attend seminars and workshops to keep your mind busy. Don’t fake smile, but rather make it a habit to compliment yourself. This is not fooling around, but hearing good words from yourself is a pleasant feeling, after all. It sets your mood and even uplifts your spirit. Also, helps you boost your confidence and even if you are not good at everything, I believe that there are a few things that you know to yourself that you are truly good at. Show it! Be proud and be grateful for the blessings of the Lord. Remember, the enemy of depression is yourself. So whatever you put into your mind, reflects! So only say good things to yourself. Let me remind you that it is also pretty normal and okay to get depressed, but know that it is just a phase. Ride on it, but don’t ever let yourself be stucked from there.
  4. If you are having a social phobia, good news! Everbody has a phobia. Nobody doesn’t! One way to conquer it is to start with only few audience, specifically your family, friends and those whom you are more comfortable with. Keep in mind that not everyone will going to agree with you. All you have to do is to practice acceptance every now and then. If you can engage with a game you play, how much more with the people around you. People are designed to communicate. Be free. Be open to possibilities. Brush off all the negative criticism, yet also learn to accept and entertain constructive criticism. In the long run, you will be the one to benefit from it. I know, having social phobia is hard to outgrow, but there is no impossible with the one who is willing to go out from her shell. Know your comfort zone, but also know when you need to come out. Life doesn’t end there. Develop a sense of self-worth, self-acceptance and most of all, a self-love. I guess, it all boils down in loving ourselves first before we engage ourselves with different sets of people.

I am honestly not a licensed writer nor did I had a proper schooling or workshops in writing. But I feel the need to speak up and share what’s on my mind. I might probably be able to save one’s life. So whoever is reading this, I hope I had been of a great help to you. Whatever you are and who you are, the only thing that matters in life is how we deal with life. How we make time for our family, friends, our constant, ourselves and most of all, God. I hope all of us will give an impactful mark once we are to depart from the earth. And not just video gaming all we want. The world needs not only a single person, but every person must help hand in hand.


Before you say anything, you are most welcome! It is my pleasure to give hope and extend their lives on earth. After all, we only live once. More than anything to say, it is also a privilege to live in a world where everything is at the tips of our fingers, so use it wisely so that our Almighty Father will thank us, too. God bless and keep safe everyone!

Crocodile Tears

Featured Image: From This Website

Have you ever met someone who became so complacent about lying?

Well, we all do.

Today, I would like to share some of the red flags I myself experienced firsthand.

Though this is not a 100% guarantee that you will be able to catch the person if he in the first place already mastered the art of lying.

Meaning to say, he already got accustomed in making lies perhaps due to peer pressure, family expectations, and or high standards/ requirements either from school or work.

But the buttom line is, whether there’s a valid reason behind it or not, lying is never a good idea and shouldn’t be tolerated.

So without further ado, here are some techniques you can do about it:

  • Make an eye to eye contact

Do you know that according to psychology, the person who is not telling the truth cannot maintain an eye to eye contact?

You may also have observed that his body is shaking or his eyes are somewhere else because of thinking of other ways to reason out.

  • Know if he always acts like a victim

Be alert especially at times when a person acts in such a way that made you feel that you are the one attacking him without any basis or solid proof.

For some occasion, he may also do the “fake tears” thing in order to make you feel even worse!

Like you are the person who is a war freak who doesn’t even know how to discuss things in a nice and friendly manner.

Sounds ridiculous, right?

  • Does he make a lot of excuses?

Been there, done that!

And I know how it feels whenever someone is trying to cover up his made up lies.

In fact, I had known one who lied on me several times.

Though I cannot put everything here in details, but let me share with you how I get even more paranoid and suspicious about the way he lies.

The first thing I could vividly remember is that, he cannot get a job because of high requirements in working abroad.

Second, his family needs him more in the house so he gave up his dreams; also to give way for his brother to take his place for the meantime.

Third, he became fed up of trying because of so much failures and disappointments that he faced along the way.

He then blame me for being so concerned about him to the point of calling me such a nagger; giving him a lot of unsolicited advice and so and so forth.

Being in that kind of relationship is toxic and depressing.

But also keep in mind that this scenario does not only happen in relationship ’cause it could also happen even in family and friends who were driven by pride, jealousy, envy and the like, so you have to be more cautious of giving your trust away.

After all, not everyone can admit to themselves that they are at fault despite the fact of being caught.

I hope I was able to give the reader a clue or at least be of a great help to you to somehow ease your pain and heartache you might be struggling with, ’cause life is still beautiful no matter what.

Here are just some of the things I discovered along the way.

I know, there’s more of this to discuss, so feel free to share your ideas, and experiences with me and kindly leave a comment below.

Gracias!

PS: I’ve seen a nice video about crocodile tears, you might want to watch it.

Enjoy!
