Love is a funny thing...

Love is really a funny thing. One day you were on a cloud nine and ecstatically experiencing the bliss of the entire moment, then in another course of time you were intensely grasping the pain of the agonizing occasion. One thing or another, love makes everything go around. These various episodes of love make the story whole and much interesting.

And courtesy of my good friend, Chico, he ask me to watch Love, Rosie. I'll like it daw. Hehehe.

Initial Goals for 2016

It's time to plan for my 2016. Few weeks from now, I'll say goodbye in 2015, so as early as now I'm preparing my plans and goals for next year. I had a post of the to-do list for the rest of the year. And I posted there 7 things I am thankful for and another 8 things I'd like to do in 2015. So far I crossed out 2 things out of 8. Well, I don't feel bad for not accomplishing those goals, but of course, I wanted to cross out more to do's as much as possible. Hehehe.

As I was going through my today's tasks, I visited a website that inspires me to accomplish next year. From the past few months, my director has been encouraging me to get involve in business and invest in my career growth. Maybe it did not sink in immediately but now I have some goals for this area of my life. So here we go:

1.I want to get a certification in Marketing Profession.

I still want to pursue my MA studies, but due to lack of funds and time to do it my other option for the meantime is to get certified in this field. This is my professional investment. Of course, I need to prepare for this and review as often. I'm planning to take the exam by March or April next year. Pray for me, please.

2. I want to build an Online Business Solutions

Since I'm in Digital Marketing and has been working in this field for over a year, I'm taking the risk of starting a small business together with my friends. I'm learning basic SEO, Web Designing and Web Branding/Rebranding, Social Media Campaign, Lead Generation and Creative Writing.  I'm aiming to get clients who are fond of outsourcing services, but I'm also open for local clients. Let's see how this business will go through. :)

When do I plan do execute this? Right after my RMP certification. BTW, I need to buy a new laptop for this. So I have to prepare my savings. Hahaha! :)

3. I want to invest for a family business, too!

I'd like to invest for a family business, too! I want to encourage my Dad to kick off a small business that will help our family's daily expenses. This is a vague plan, but we'll get there anyway.

So here are my top 3 initial goals for 2016. I know I will edit this post and probably add more. Hehehe! Cheers for 2016! Yey!

Movie Weekend

Hey, guys! I know it's Monday and there are tons of workloads to do but let me get down to my list of movies that I'd like to watch for the upcoming weekends. *listing down helps me to beat the Monday blues so let's get going!*

1. Me and Earl and the Dying Girl

Surely this movie will make me value life even more! I also wish to watch this with my girls (youth girls)

2. 500 days of Summer

Based on the trailer, I find Summer (the girl) kinda interesting and the character of the Tom. Tom is one in a million guy who believes in love and because of that, I definitely want to watch this movie. Oh, yes! I forgot to mention Regina Spektor. Her voice is awesome! I think that's the OST of the movie. I hope to watch this with my dearest love. Hehe :)

So yeah! This is my list. I really hope toI can watch this on the weekend and probably while cuddling my pillow. I have to spend my Saturday morning with my cousin. We decided to take some lapses and maybe after that I'll watch the films. Hehe. Oh boy! I can't wait for weekend again. Hehehe.

3 Little Things

I was on my way home last night. I rode the bus and felt the coldness of the night. I plugged in my earphones and started playing the new songs I had on my playlist.

I was on my downfall yesterday, not so good  at all. When the music cued in, my mood changed. I felt like I was transported into another place. I felt like it was summer. The sun was scorching high yet the breeze is cold. I am resting under the palm tree peacefully while watching the waves kissing the shore back and forth. It was relaxing.

The song mentions three things- little things to do when life falls apart. I love how the songwriter expresses the truths in this song:

1. I cry my eyes and I dry up my heart.

In my darkest times, this is what I do. Releasing the agony within helps me to relax and to think straight again. Draining the hype of my emotions helps me to be empty and what's good about it is that I can be filled again. Emptiness is the key to being filled again with all things good.

2. I Pray and give thanks

1 Thessalonians 5:17-18 says "Pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."

Uttering a prayer to God with a thanksgiving release my heart from being a prisoner of a bad day. It is really effective. I think Apostle Paul knew about it. We can always thank God for the life that we have, no matter how bad it was still there is something to be thankful for.

3. Pause. Take a breath and bow... let the chapter end.

Call it a day. I'd like to take the exact lyrics of the song for point number three:
"I design my future bright not by where my life has been and I try try try try try, again. Yes, I try try try try try again. "

How about you? What are the 3 things you learn today? :)

The haunted thoughts

This picture sums up the thoughts I have right now. My mind has its own life and that's why I make it captive to Jesus. Times like these are my weakest point. So, I blog to release the tension in my mind.

The reality also haunts me. Pressure is on and there are deadlines to beat. How come I can still manage to blog? Haha. Funny tho,

All I want to do right now is to rest and shut my head from overthinking. I want peace.

I wanted to vent out my thoughts like:

What if my boss doesn't like the result?

What if we'll be late for the deadline?

What about the other projects? Can we push it through till next week?

What if my subordinates left me hanging in the air?

What about my other commitments outside work?

What about the event this Saturday?

What about.. What if..

I'm alone. I need help, God.

I need help.

When my words are...

Caught off guard. Often times, I'm caught off guard and dug my own grave. I lost. Sometimes my words are not reliable anymore. Sometimes it's empty and dead. Sometimes I can't even trust my words.

It is as if each phrase had a deadly incurable disease and scheduled to meet its final hour. Words are dead and so am I.

But out of this dying emotional rants about my words, I found its irony. Who would have thought that the antidote is also the problem? It is word war. word versus Words. My words versus His Words.

When my words are unreliable then I found His words unshakable.
When my words are incomplete then I found His words fulfilled with promises.
When my words are dumb then I found His words with insights and wisdom.
When my words are incurable then I found His words healing and restoring.
When my words are empty then I found His words full.
When my words are dead then I found His words alive and active.

And so my words die as the day passes by and death to self-took place then, His words came to my life. His words are unshakable, fulfilled with promises, filled with insights and wisdom, restoring and healing, it is full and complete. His words are alive and active. It clings from flesh to bone down the roots of the human soul.

The Word is Him, who is, who was and is to come.
