#WhatHappened

It still surprises me that after elections, more and more people here in America tend to express discrimination even more. I just don't understand why there is a need to do that when all of us are not a pure native of a country. Each of us has ancestors from different nations and by tracing one person's DNA, an ancestry can be known. We may think and believe that we are a citizen of one sole nation but people who think that way are missing the point. In my opinion, these topics and events about racism and discrimination happened because others feel insecure or threatened about or towards a situation.

Due to the recent events, there are a lot who labels the talks about what is happening around US as "Trump Effect". If you search through all the search engines in the internet or even scroll through social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or even Snapchat, a lot of people are expressing their thought of hatred, disappointment, and happiness towards the results of the elections.

During the electoral process, I began thinking what will happen to America. Michelle Obama stated in her speech that what made this country great is due to immigrants which leads me to a thought about why would there even be a divided community. All of us are human beings born in this world living 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I don't think people are different. There is no need to label people due to skin color, nor from where they are from. 

There are a lot of talks in the news or in the internet about hoping that Trump will be a good president. He promised a lot of things during the campaign but hopefully he keeps his word about compromising and not creating conflict. America is already a great country as it is. There are just a lot of people who turn a blind eye or immediately closes off their ears and minds to what can be positive.

Trampled

If ever you're pushed back to a corner and have to decide which is important, what would you rather choose?

In life, there will always be things in this world that will give us a nerve-wrecking decision to make that can either lead to happiness, success, and opportunities while the other leads to despair, sadness, and illness. However, whether you chose one or the other, there will always be a disadvantage or someone can always be hurt which is most of the times - inevitable.

So choose which one will make you happy. The thing or person who you know will be worth every step you'll make. Choose which will be right for you, the one that you will have no regrets.

Smile and Pay it forward. Start your day with a smile and pray that everything will be alright.

Everything happens for a reason. Problems are there to test us or help us to become better at where we are right now.

Jump at New Year

From where I come from,
]there's a saying that when you jump at exactly 12AM on January 1
then you will grow taller for the year.

As I grow older,
I understood that jumping on New Year's Eve has a much more deeper meaning.
You jump to exceed your limits.
You jump to leave the past be the past as a lesson for the future.
You jump as another leap of faith to continue growing in life and be successful.

May Everyone have a great year ahead. Happy New Year from our house to yours :]

Frustrating but True

They say it's better to give than to receive.

They say that you must be humble above all things,
for you will never know what will happen in the future.

You try to be kind, open, generous and forgiving..
and yet, when you need help the most,
all those whom you've helped are not around anymore..

Frustrating but it's true

True to the heart

Doing something that you do not love threatens one's well being.
it makes you hesitant and indecisive in a lot of things.
one day, you may ask yourself "WHY?"

Why do we still do the things we do even though we are aware that it hurts us?
Think of it like this:
          We do things for the ones we love, to see them happy and satisfied even if you are dying inside. True enough we strive to finish the things for them that in time we can learn to love the things we do as our own. The key is to be optimistic. Look for the brighter side of the picture and most importantly, PRAY

November Tradition

It has always been a tradition to visit the graves of our family members who went ahead. I pray that they find peace and that God forgives their earthly sins.

In what I do

i do not force people to believe in my beliefs,
nor even in what do,
and what i perceive.

instead,

i let them see through their own eyes the reality of
how i see and do things differently in my own way..

to help...

to serve...

to accept...

&

to love everything there is in this world
