To The Ambitious Ones and Over Achievers

   As your heart trembles and doubts, remember you are not alone. You get through the day, the week, the month, thankfully even the whole year. There are big hopes and dreams that fill your head but you never know if they'll ever actually be in your future. You strive to be the best and try to grow as much as you can. In your academics, extra-curricular activities, as well as the different roles you have in every aspect of your life. Do this, do that. Be this, be that. Despite the quiet whispers of the world, you try to be smart enough not to listen. But I guess you just have this feeling the only way you'll reach for the stars is by listening to those nonsense distractions.

   Let me tell you this, don't try to meet this world's standards. Instead, make your own. Don't try to define yourself by what other people can do better than you. If you focus too much on that, you will miss out on the actual gift you were meant to enhance. Every individual has their own purpose and no matter how redundant it may seem, this is the truth. Why rush and follow this world's time table for you when you can follow a more adventurous one? The exciting thing is, God is full of surprises. Although sometimes it may seem like a hassle because you want everything to be planned out. You want to be prepared. But if we plan every single detail of our lives, how will we make way for God's plans in every nook and corner of our lives? Ask God why you are where you are and figure out what your purpose is according to him. And I am 100% sure that his plan is greater than what we had in mind. Honestly, it's okay not to have everything planned out or even sorted out. Even though this means your OC/ambitious self would get irritated. This doesn't mean you would stop trying and just let everything work out by itself. Don't stop! Work hard and keep going! Just remember why you are doing it and who you are trying to please. To all the ambitious, do not worry too much about the future. It is totally okay for you not be good at everything, as much as you want to. Don't linger on the those things you can't do. Focus on your purpose. Your work is enough, God will do the rest.


“Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?" Matthew 6:25-27

Unsatisfying Love

[So I made this awhile back and I wasn't sure at first if I was going to share it but here it is. I enjoy writing but I know there are a lot of things to work on. These were just thoughts I put in to writing. It's always good to practice right?]



Love

this whole world is so consumed about the idea of love

Love

in a world full of wrong we crave it so much thinking it will make wrong right

Love

looking for the perfect soul 

Love 

why are humans so consumed about the idea of love in someone's arms? No wait, scratch that. Why is THIS GENERATION so absorbed with love at the completely wrong time?

Love


why do we drown ourselves in thoughts and emotions that are made up of nothing but the self-centered acts of countless people

Love


be cautious, fragile one

Love

 What's the rush? 
Know that there's a right time for everything and this is not the time


Love

if you only knew. 
If you only knew that the kind of love that died for you way back is enough

Love


if
You
Only 
Knew

Love 


I am saying this today with a dart in my heart knowing the neglectful minds of our youth  


Love


Okay, maybe we should be so consumed about love after all.  Not the self-absorbed kind of love that happens to fall in the completely wrong places of your life, 

but the sacrificial love no one can compare to. So maybe there is a perfect soul after all

Love


when will you realize? 
that
is 
enough

Love 



how beauiful it is when you're smart enough to focus on the only love that matters.

The Day I Said Goodbye to Home School

In honor of the last month of school, I have decided to blog about my first year in regular school and mostly, what I have learned through this experience. 

If you must know, I have been home-schooled since birth. It was partially because my parents wanted to be the one to teach me and mold me instead of the teachers who will be with me most of my day. The other reason being, as I grew up I was very much involved with my ballet classes. Both my ballet mentor and parents encouraged me that it was best if I stayed home-schooled due to the two classes I was already attending. It was fine with me, and I did agree with the decision. But later on, I started to have this crave to be part of a regular school. I felt so left out, like an "outcast". I did have many friends because of different activities but it was different from having school friends. I complained a lot about having to do so much things. I kept thinking why I had to be so independent. At the same time, I also felt so dumb. I had no one to compare myself to so I always thought that my schooling was so behind.  I really felt different from the others.
