Feel and breathe

A series of push and pull,
We stop and we go,

No destination, lots of complications,
And reasons for hesitation,

I give up,
Block the reasoning and let everything go,

Feel and breathe,
Now, I prefer not to think,

Second counts,
My Love, try not to blink,

Do you regret?
While it lasts, shall we just enjoy every moment?

Lightning

Sky looks peaceful, the clouds seem sad, 

I can’t see the stars and the moon,

It’s just totally dark,

Few drops of water starts falling on the windshield,

Little drops, a little more, a few more,

Not sure if I heard a rumbling sound, but I saw a flash of light appeared,

He excitingly asked, “Did you see that?”

‘Yeah’ I said, But more than that it was the sweetest smile that caught my eye,

And in that moment, I know my memory of rain changed,

I’m bringing this back home, I’m running miles away.

Coffee or something

Ideas are overflowing,

Words are rushing in,

I don’t know what I’m doing,

I just grabbed this pen and scribble anything,

I re-read, making sense out of nothing,

This is pointless, just meet me here,

Let’s have coffee or something

Stoplight


Should I go or should I stop?

Maybe I can ask the moon, so I look up,

The stars do not align,

I’m not sure if I should take it as a sign,

But my feet lead me here,

The stoplight says it clear,

It’s hard to say no,  but I know I must go,

I’m sorry my Dear, we must end here.

Bagong Simula

Bagong buwan, unang bukang liwayway,

Marami ang sa iyo’y naghihintay,

Bagong kabanata, tayo’y muling magsimula,

Kunin ang pluma, sulatan na ang blankong pahina,

Huwag matakot, imbis mapuno ng pag-asa, 

At mag baka sakali na maraming magandang surpresa,

Mapanatag na kung san man paa’y dalhin, 

Malayo man ang marating,

Buhay ay palaging haharapin,

Ang nasa puso’t isip, ‘Oras at panahon ay aking susulitin’

For February, I tried to make short poem in Filipino.  It’s challenging but I love it.  Here’s the English translation, it’s not rhyming but I hope you like it.   Have a great February!

                        NEW BEGINNING

New month, first dawn, 

A lot is waiting for you,

New chapter, let’s start again,

Grab the pen, on blank page write then,

Don’t be afraid, instead, be filled with hope,

Maybe tons of beautiful surprises await,

Be at peace that wherever your feet take you,

How far you’ll go,

Life will always be faced with heart and mind’s set,

‘I will make my hours and time worth it’.

Wisdom

So many choices, but maybe few chances,

So many questions, but hard to make a decision,

When too much is happening and everything looks inviting,

Pray, but don’t ask for a ‘Sign’, seek ‘Wisdom’ and you’ll be fine,

For our plans may not be His, but Trust Him, you’ll be at peace.

I Left My Heart in Australia

Since it’s Straya day, I looked back and reminisce the vacation I had last July 2015. Let me share with you some life thoughts accompanied by the pictures of the places I’ve been and the things I did.
Note: I will let the pictures do the talking so it will be a one-sentence-life-thought challenge.


Let Your Light Shine.  
In life, we should see dark days as an opportunity to shine brighter.

Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge are more stunning at night! Date night with a glass of wine would be lovelier. So romantic.

Disconnect to Reconnect.
Sometimes we just need to have a ‘ME-time’ in order to connect with ourselves and to the world.

Bondi, Manly and Surfers Paradise.  These beaches let me had a taste of Summer on a Winter.  Most of the time, I explored Oz alone because my relatives have work.  It’s cool, I enjoyed every moment I had getting to know myself better.

Be Kid-at-Heart.
Like a child, have more fun, be silly, and be delighted in everything.

When I was in Sydney, I went to Luna Park with my nephew. That definitely made me a Certified Aussie kid! 😉  And in Brisbane, I attended ‘Hunter’s 5th birthday party’.  Funny, right? But I really had fun with kids! I felt like we’re all the same age.

Dare Yourself!
Be courageous and know that YOU ARE CAPABLE OF SO MUCH MORE THAN YOU COULD EVER IMAGINE!

I said this before. ‘I believe no one is ever ready to do anything. No matter how prepared you are, there will still be a space for anxiety. So why delay or wait for the perfect time? Most of the awesome moments in our lives happen when we let go and let our instinct guide us. I am no good in living life to the fullest; I just do what I want to do and what makes me happy. It’s also exciting to dare yourself to do the ‘impossible’ thing. You don’t need to impress other people; you just need to impress oneself. If you make an impact or inspire others, well that’s a bonus.

On my 2nd day in Australia, I climbed the Sydney Harbour Bridge.  It was really an accomplishment for I have a fear of heights! (I don’t even ride a roller coaster! Well, only once in Universal Studios Singapore- a favor I did for a friend.)

I thought climbing the bridge would already make my trip a memorable one.  Little did I know that I would have that great amount of COURAGE to go SKYDIVING! I booked it two days before my flight back to the Philippines so I can’t back out. I told myself ‘IT’S NOW or NEVER’ and ‘GO BIG or GO HOME’.  And, I did it a day before my 25th birthday (July 30)!!!  Best Birthday Gift Ever!  It was TOTALLY UNFORGETTABLE!
And literally, MY HIGHEST ACHIEVEMENT!  

You’re Always Home.
Be at peace and enjoy the journey for in every step we take leads us to where we are supposed to be.

I don’t know why but Australia felt like home.  I don’t know when will I be back again.  Hopefully, soon.  But for now, I’m just grateful for everything that happened- the experiences I had, the lessons I learned, and the beautiful souls I met.

THANK YOU!

Lots of Love,

Happy Straya Day Mates!

P.S. I know it’s almost 2am, 27th of January now in Australia. Maybe my greeting doesn’t count. But still 25th of January here in PH. (3 hours time difference) 😉
