10 Things I Learned This Year

As the old saying goes, “We live and we learn.” Sometimes we learn things the hard way through trial and error, failure and mistakes; and sometimes we learn from simply observing the people and things around us, and being open to new information and change.

What Makes You Happy?

One thing I’ve learned so far in my journey, is that happiness is found in the simplest of things—like spending time with our loved one, making someone smile, doing something nice for someone, being grateful, or maybe even playing with our pets.

Living By ‘The Golden Rule’

They say, if you want to see who your true friends are, go through a tough time and see who sticks around. Over the years, I’ve lost many friends because of this; and with time I learned to easily differentiate among the real and fake ones, and what it takes to build a genuine friendship. …

Hard Work On a Hospital Bed

I’m an advocate for ambition and diligence.

That being said, I strongly believe we should maintain some sort of balance when it comes to working toward our…

What would you do if you weren’t afraid? When that question was posed to me, I thought long and hard about my answer— What would I do if I weren’t afraid? I’ve faced some huge fears before. I made choices by following my heart and walking in faith, and it somehow always turned out in…

Why Do We Wait To Start Living?

My father is a very simple man. He spends hours sitting in the porch on his small, brown, rustic chair that’s fitted snug in a corner,  properly positioned  at an angle where he can watch cartoons on the TV inside while catching a glimpse of whatever’s going on outside.

One Word That Makes Life Easier

It’s late. My eyes are growing heavy from the overwhelming exhaustion of my daily tasks. Still, my day isn’t over—I have to meal prep for the week ahead. I much rather be curled up in my bed watching a movie. Oh the joys of adulthood, “Why do I always have so much to do?” “I…

If you’re anything like the way I was, you perhaps don’t pay much attention to your daily habits. Did you know that our life is the result of all our habits?
