When someone asks about a happy memory of my dad, I can’t think of anything in particular. Knowing him and him loving me is my happy memory.
That is all I can muster at the moment to write…. it just hurts. 💔
Fear is a ghost that follows you, that haunts you. Chases you, reminds you that you’re weak and small. It tells you constantly why you can’t, shouldn’t, won’t ever…
When this fear that overwhelms you …. Breathe…. Hope… Dream… And most of all don’t give up!
Give your all and then give some more… There’s always this place deep within that somehow replenishes itself… Utilizes a strength we didn’t know we had…
We look back over our lives sometimes at battles we faced and we wonder how we ever made it through. I know sometimes those things seem to be impossible and daunting. But somehow we conquered… Maybe we went around, got carried over, prayed or just broke through. However we did it… We did it!
This ghost might constantly whisper in your ear that you can’t… Why even try… And sometimes we listen to it… And in that case, forgive yourself for it. We are humans… Full of mistakes and flaws. We learn and grow from them. We can even use those moments to teach someone else or ourselves.
Life is beautiful.
Even in fear there is an opportunity for courage.
Be courageous. Forgive yourself.
Love…. Often…. Deeply…. Passionately….

We speak with actions…. Not words…
Check out her blog and give her some encouragement. Life’s journey should have cheerleaders… Let’s cheer each other on whenever possible to be great, to overcome our fears, to live above our potential…
I have to say that the new year have brought me new hope in my life right now. I say enough of the old me (she’s history) and welcome the (hopefully) better and improved me. This year I want to take risks but we all know that fear and risk comes hand in hand.
All I want right now is to be independent. I am already 23 years but still have no job and still living with my family. I am in this stage of my life wherein I want to test and explore my limits and capabilities. I also want to see how will I live my life with my own decisions and actions, simply living just depending with myself. It’s not that I want to leave my family and friends or abandon them, that will never happen. I just want to be able to grow and learn in…

Really loved this!!!! Sometimes it feels that everyone and everything is out there to steal our joy but we control how we react. So true!!
Remember this: No one can steal your joy unless you allow them. There are always going to be people who upset you. There will always be circumstances we can’t control. Life is full of things we have no say over. However, the good news is that we have control over our responses. We have a say in how we react. When something doesn’t go your way, don’t give in to negativity. Tell yourself that this may not be how I wanted my day to go, but I am bigger than my circumstances. I am strong and I will make the choice to be joyful no matter what!
Remember, joy doesn’t have to mean happiness. If you are in a dark situation you can still have joy. You can hope for healing and have faith that your trial will come to pass. That is true joy. Never giving in when all…
