Surviving Trials and Disappointments...

It's been a terribly tough week for me.

It all started when I had dysmenhorrhea last Friday. Everything just went downhill since then. As if the mild depression caused by my pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS) and the abdominal cramps weren't enough, I had to go through one of the most painful weeks in my life.

Aside from my emotional struggles, I had to deal with other problems such as my brother's sickness, financial instability, and the Wizone publication. I felt overwhelmed by my problems and I was beginning to feel weak and scared.

But now I realize that that was just God's way of bringing me back to Him. I was beginning to go astray, almost made myself believe someone's lies and I was about to succumb into temptation. God's love is indeed greater than all the evils in this world. He took away all the things that mattered to me because He wants to replace them with GREATER things. Praise Him and His mysterious ways...

Amidst my difficulties, God sent His angels in the form of people to take care of me. And I will always be thankful that I have them in my life... Ems, Hannah, Laiza, Jose, Melanie, Te Zita, Sir Monching, Te Revs, Terry...and all the rest who've been so supportive of me.

When I went to Davao to bring my brother to the doctor, it was not only he who received healing, but also me. I spent an incredibly wonderful time with my brothers and I would remember that moment for the rest of my life. I also felt the love of my family in Davao - their mere presence has eased the pain and sadness that I felt.

I am thankful that God is working on me - making me stronger through trials and disappointments. Now, I truly believe that NOTHING is impossible as long as you stay ANCHORED to HIM. In Him, I put my TRUST.

Boys will be boys...

Lately, I've been experiencing heartaches.

Funny because I'm currently happy with my personal life. These heartaches that I am talking about are caused by the "boys" of my friends. My close friends are currently in a place I've been to before - where the prince suddenly becomes a monster. And as Taylor Swift says, you realize that you're not a princess and it's not a fairytale. Boys are just boys, and they will be boys...

That's why girls should stop being so "nice" and "loyal". As Marilyn Monroe said: "A wise girl kisses but does not love, listens but does not believe, and leaves before she is left." :)

Yeah, it's kinda hard to do because we've all been taught and brought up the other way around. But girls, don't give your heart to one man - not until there's a ring on your finger. Enjoy getting all the attention, affection, care and love from the people around you - not just from one man... ;)

Be happy!
