This makes me happy. 🙂

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 680 times in 2015. If it were a cable car, it would take about 11 trips to carry that many people.

May is a very special month for me. Aside from the fact that this is my birth month, it’s summer too! Pretty amazing huh. So this blog talks about why I was not able to update since I cannot remember the date of my last post. Fast forward to today, I am busy because of few things.

  1. I am a certified business woman now! Yes. I am a business woman now. It’s pretty much related to one thing that I ever loved! Apparels. Yey! I have a new business that’s called Renee’s Closet. It’s formerly known as Dress to Kill but that’s way too overused. I decided to have it named after mine. It’s more of a summer collection. You can check on my Facebook account to see more of it.
  2. I am a weekend warrior at the beach. Thank holy goodness for the weekend rest days! I get to camp at the beach every weekend. Surf. Eat. Read. Sleep. This is an ideal life. So the place I go to is a remote area and the connection is sporadic, I can’t find time to share with you my wonderful experience back there. I will make sure to post pictures soon.
  3. I am reading a lot lately. Sometimes what we need is something that’ll feed our minds and soul. One good thing about the new Blackberry Software Update is that I get to download from amazon.com. That was the reason why I have Our Daily Bread that I, take note, can also set to remind me every end of my shift at work. What a great way to start my day. (My work starts at night and ends in the morning.) I bought 10 new books. I have about 50 eBooks to read. And believe me, this is euphoric and so addicting.

There it goes. These are the things that fill my days. Fill me in with yours.

There really comes a point in our lives when we feel unpretty. This song by TLC reminded me of those days I was gaga over love. I felt nothing but sadness and emptiness. I was happy, yes. That was no doubt. But what’s underneath when you love someone and you know that you can only love him, not have him? You tell me. My bestie happened to share this message to me. She saw this Facebook post from one of her friends and posted this to my wall. I was teary-eyed after reading this simple, yet relatable message.

Letting go is like pulling a tooth. Once it’s gone, you’re somewhat relieved. But how many times does your tongue roll over that same spot? A few hundred times a day maybe, because there’s something missing but that is also a reminder that it may be gone, at least you don’t have to feel the pain it gives when it was there.

The lyrics of this song’s cool. I can pretty much relate:

My outsides look cool My insides are blue Every time I think I’m through It’s because of you I’ve tried different ways But it’s all the same At the end of the day I have myself to blame I’m just trippin’

Lyrics:
VERSE 1:
From darkness to light
From death into life
His grace changes everything
From broken to whole
Stained to whiter than snow
His grace changes everything
His grace changes everything

CHORUS:
There’s no sin too great
There’s no pain too deep
The cross declares it is done
There’s no shame too real
That His love won’t heal
Forever the victory is won

VERSE 2:
He has broken the chains
He has conquered the grave
His grace changes everything
By the power of His blood
We are daughters and sons
His grace changes everything
His grace changes everything

(CHORUS) (2X)

BRIDGE: (8X)
It is finished
It is finished
The victory is won

(CHORUS) (2X)

Forever the victory is won
Forever the victory is won

(CHORUS)

Romans 12:9. Let love be sincere; hate what is evil, hold on to what is good. Love one another with mutual affection; anticipate one another in showing honor.

Thank you. We’ll see more this 2015! I wish to grow and have more ideas to share.

“But when the strong were too weak to hurt the weak, the weak had to be strong enough to leave.” — Milan Kundera

Say Something I’m giving up on you.
I’ll be the one, if you want me to
Anywhere I would’ve followed you
Say something, I’m giving up on you

And I am feeling so small
It was over my head
I know nothing at all

And I will stumble and fall
I’m still learning to love
Just starting to crawl

Say something, I’m giving up on you
I’m sorry that I couldn’t get to you
Anywhere I would’ve followed you
Say something, I’m giving up on you

And I will swallow my pride
You’re the one that I love
And I’m saying goodbye

Say something, I’m giving up on you
And I’m sorry that I couldn’t get to you
And anywhere I would’ve followed you (Oh-oh-oh-oh)
Say something, I’m giving up on you

Say something, I’m giving up on you
Say something…

What a sad song.

Read: Exodus 2:2. The scripture talks about The Birth of Moses.

1. Perception for our children. If you perceive something as special, you’re going to take care of it.
2. Protection.
3. Preparation.

For kids;
Honor your parents.
Being smarter doesn’t mean wiser.

For parents;
Guide your children. Perceive for them, protect them and prepare them to see the world.

The Birth of Moses.

Good choice. Good catch. The difference.

MAN: My friend and I had a talk. He said you are a good choice and he likes you for me.

WOMAN: Oh, I would’ve bought it if I really am a good choice for you. In our case, I am only a good catch because you already have made your choice 2 years ago. Need I say more?

MAN: *Sigh*

WOMAN: I am only a good catch, I get it. And you don’t have to say anything. It’s not gonna change it. But I can be a good choice. It only takes a man to figure that one out in a second they lay their eyes on me.

End of Conversation.

P.S
For girls, you have to know your self-worth. Do not get stuck digging the grey area in between girl and friend. You should and I will stress out, YOU DESERVE to be called a girlfriend. Do not ever doubt your beauty and you do not need to test how much your heart can hold. You deserve more than that. If not the best.

The message is for all the girls who knows the difference between a good choice and a good catch but does not appreciate that learning at all. Probably, a note to self.

This song is for you.

The topic of love is one of our favorite things in the world. This blog nailed it. This blog tells you why love and religion are two of the things that matter in this world.

So as for me. If I don’t know God. I know nothing of love. God must be the center of it all. Ciao.

Ios8 update didn’t go along well with WordPress. I had to delete and reinstall the application so I can annoy you reading my blogs again.

Anyways. Since I am back.. I have Shortlist of my To Do’s.

I will travel again.
The last time was July and it’s almost the end of the year and I still have no place to go. I am undecided and my budget isn’t cooperating at all.

I will read my nth book.
This year has been tough. I have been loaded with tons of work in the office, I am a mother, and a girlfriend. I have social life and activities, I have an active lifestyle. But these things won’t stop me from reading. Reading has always been part of me.

I will be a good follower of God.

Yes. I am a baby Christian.

I will stop smoking.
I am a baby Christian and I will submit fully. I hope there’s an easy way to break up with vices.

I will spend more time in the library with my two favorite kids.
Yes. I have one favorite seven year old daughter and a favorite four year old son.

All these and more. Ciao.
