Spreading myself too thin



I'm calling out for help.

Pray for me.

I've been so decisive.

I've been hitting the road so fast.

I'm accepting loads upon loads.

I'm burning out.

I want to take a rest tonight.

As I browse through social media, I get more toxic.

I closed my eyes and tried to get some sleep. But it's hard.

The best opportunity comes with the best package. It's hard to say no.

But it's even harder to say yes.

For my sanity, I'm taking a break.

Lesson learned.

Don't spread yourself too thin,

P.S. I delegate some works. I really need to rest at the moment.

This is a confession.



My prayer life is a mess. I've been inconsistent with my daily devotions.


How is this a problem?


Prayer and studying the bible is a key component of growing my relationship with Jesus. Consistency is the key. However, I am no longer doing it religiously.


I want desperately to know God better. I want to be consistent. Right now the only consistency in my life is my inconsistency. (Yaconelli, 2002)

I'm quoting this from a book called Messy spirituality. I feel the same. I found myself in this author's words. I feel like this guy's confession is mine too.

"Who I want to be and who I am are not very close together. I don’t want to be St. John of the Cross or Billy Graham. I just want to be remembered as a person who loved God, who served others more than he served himself, who was trying to grow in maturity and stability." (Yaconelli, 2002)

MALAYANG PAGTATANONG. ISANG TALUDTURAN.



PAKALMAHIN ANG SARILI. WAG MAGPADALA SA BUGSO NG DAMDAMIN.

MALAMANG AY MASAMA DIN ANG LOOB NYA AT HINDI PA SYA HANDANG MAKIPAG USAP.

HUWAG UNAHIN ANG SARILING GUSTO, LALONG HINDI LANG KAYO MAGKAKAAYOS.

PERO ANO NGA BA ANG SUKDULAN NG PAG-IBIG?

GANITO BA DAPAT O KAILANGAN ISAALANG-ALANG ANG KAHIBANGAN KO?

NAKAKAPAGOD MAG ISIP. AYOKO NA.

GUSTO KO NALANG IHIGA ITO, ITULOG.

IBALING ANG PAG IISIP SA IBA PANG MGA IMPORTANTENG BAGAY.


AT MULI, INIIWASAN KONG BANG MARESOLBA ANG PROBLEMA?

AKO LANG BA O KAMING DALAWA?

AKO MAN ANG NAG UMPISA NG APOY PARA MAG AWAY, AKO LANG BA ANG MAY KASALANAN?

MAS IMPORTANTE BANG MALAMAN KUNG SINO ANG NAGKAMALI AT MAY PAG KUKULANG PARA MAAYOS ANG PROBLEMA O AND AMININ NA AKO AY MAY PAGKAKAMALI AT HUMIHINGI NG TAWAD?

MAAYOS BA NG PAG HINGI NG KAPATAWARAN ANG PROBLEMA?

OO.

ITO ANG SAGOT KO NGUNIT...

ANG PAG HINGI BA NG TAWAD ANG MAGPAPABABAGO NG PAGKILOS PARA MAIWASAN NANG MAULIT ANG NAGING SANHI NG PROBLEMA?


TIGNAN ANG SARILI, SUNDAN ANG MGA BAKAS NG PAG UUGALI. SIGURADO AKO SA SARILING MAY DAPAT AYUSIN AT BAGUHIN.


INIISIP KO KUNG GAANO ITO BA ITO KADALAS? NAGING BAHAGI NA BA ITO NG AKING SARILI?

MAAALIS KO BA ITO?

KAILAN KO MABUBURA ANG PAGIGING MAGAGALITIN, MAINISIN, AT KAWALAN NG PANG UNAWA?

MAY MAS MALALIM BA ITONG UGAT? DAPAT BANG ISISI ANG LAHAT SA KEMIKAL NA INILALABAS NG UTAK?

EHERSISYO. PAGPAPALIT NG PAGKAIN. PAG IISIP NG MAGANDANG MGA BAGAY. LAHAT ITO NAGAWA KO NA.

PERO HINDI PA DIN NA RERESOLBA ANG SARILING MULTO.

PAANO BA?

MAAAYOS KO BA ITO NG MAG-ISA O KAILANGAN KO DIN NG TULONG NYA?

SA LAHAT BA NG PAGKAKATAON AY AKO LANG AKO MAG AAYOS SA SARILI KO O DAPAT KO DIN IKONSIDERA NA MAY BAHAGI DIN SYA SA LAHAT NG ITO.

TAMA NA ANG PAG IISIP. NAKAKAGOD. NAKAKAWALA NG LAKAS.

ALAS NUEBE PALANG NG UMAGA, MAHABA PA ANG ARAW. TAMA NA ITO.

Walking through the valley


I'm working through the valley.
This won't take for long, perhaps.
I don't know when this will end.

This is a leap of faith


I wanted to take a leap of faith. This is going to be uncomfortable, but I am sure that there is growth there.

It's been more than a year now since I stayed at home and started freelancing. I never thought that I could extend for another seven months working at home. In my prayer, I plead to God that He would sustain me until the end of 2017 and He did because He is faithful.

Jomalig Experience with cousins

It was 8 years ago since I traveled out of town with my cousins. This is our throwback photo from our Bicol trip from 2010.


Kuya Mac is my cousin wearing the red shirt told me once that we will travel the Philippines together by the time we are all working professionals. I have been working for more than 3 years now and it finally comes true!

I brought along my brother, Jonis. Kuya Mac brought his brother too!




My brother Jonis. He is an aspiring photographer too. 

Here are his sample shots







Jomalig is a great place to enjoy. The best way to explore the whole island is through habal-habal
