day 1329 – mothering me

family will always be family and i am grateful to have caring ones. last night my mom said i was pale, this morning she handed me bottles and said i need to replenish the blood i lost. these red dates doesn’t taste good but i’ll drink it to give her a peace of mind. my mom was clearly more concerned than i was. at the end of the day, i know my mom cares for me more than i know it and still treats me her little girl

day 1169 – rattled

there are instances when breaking down is the way to continue being hardy. had one of the heaviest conversation that i’ve been evading for as long as i could, but it was one that made my heart feel lighter. little was said within the conversation, everything else said it all. sometimes i’m at a loss of words because everything stays inside, but understand that i’ll always be the person you came to know. it was very difficult to follow through the night with dodgeball and training

day 1167 – thankful

image

wrapping up the long weekend with a relaxing day at richmond designer outlet. i’m very thankful to be able to surround myself with supportive people that’s been with me through my highs and lows. the support and guidance i received has gotten me farther than i could’ve imagined; the reason i can continue to live out and chase my dreams. i’m always a willing giver to those who saw me fail but never gave up; i didn’t give up because you didn’t give up on me. i’m not perfect, i’m a limited edition. i’ll continue to work my way towards being the best that i can be. it’s been an enjoyable long weekend with a lot of mo time, and now it’s time to work hard and chase the big dreams that awaits

resolution series: [thirty] save up

image

often when the the topic of saving comes up, everyone immediately thinks of the bling. but sometimes you have to look at a broader picture of wealth. by definition, wealth means assets; it does not only come in money value, but also comes in knowledge and experience that you possess and the quality of people that surround you. i consider my family an asset, for they are who have raised me, who taught me everything i know and gave me everything i have. i share all my past with them and they do the same with me. the amount of support i receive from them over the years is immeasurable and cannot be calculated in any currency. friends is another asset, because they are who you grow up with, learn from and play alongside. together, we shared countless memories that no one can take away from us. and then of course there’s the financial side of wealth, which unfortunately no one can live without. to save up is to make sure you retain those valuable connections with family, friends, teammates and soul mates. for those you want to continue growing old with, treat them well and take care of the relationships you don’t want to go without. being successful starts now, in planning ahead and building up for the future in all aspects including people. every small increment will grow and over time and will add up over time

…and that concludes my resolution series. hope you found it enjoyable to read as much as i enjoyed writing it

day 435 – where we at??

throwback to hamber days with the locker gang. lived through the many highs and lows of highschool with this awesome group. it’s a pity we have all dispersed into different areas of the globe but all the good times will not be forgotten. its a test because true friends will always feel like we are together even when far apart. wonder where everyone is at right now

day 29 – look what i found

this all happened after we watched and re-watched the coach carter movie. a contract we signed in black and white years ago that would give the rights of our soul to the other. little did we know this agreement still stands today and until the end of our days. how much we have changed since and how everything is still the same, just like yesterday. don’t ever change
