When You Feel Lost

I’ve been driving again, a skill I abandoned for the last 10 years. I once got a ticket for an unintentional error on the road, I just didn’t have time (made time) to renew my license until recently. And now we’re back. I know ten years! That’s another story for another time. 🙂 I feel…

The Gift of Pause

I am grateful for this time to write to you. I have taken time off to rest today. For me writing leisurely is restful. Lately, I have been rushing through life and I have to stop myself from working too much because a good friend reminded me to: “Love yourself!” Indeed. 🙂 So, I am…

How to Be Brave

I always find visiting a wake sobering. It puts life into its proper perspective. I’ve been to many wakes before including my dad’s but it doesn’t get any easier even if you knew it would happen eventually. Still I have hope because I know that life on earth as we know it may end, but…

Get a Soul Spa!

Hello Soul Friend, How are you today? Are you happy? Can you be happier? We understand how you are feeling. We’ve been there before. There was a time when we did not love the lives we were living. A time when we felt so broken in spirit that we wanted to stay under the covers and…

Make Time for Reflection

Lately, I’ve been too preoccupied with much work, and it hurts my heart. It’s difficult when we’re always on the go and we don’t have the time to pause and reflect on where we’re going. To check if we are still on the right path. “An unexamined life is not worth living,” Socrates reminds us. It’s…

Make Time for Exercise

But when we do this, when we reschedule our schedule with ourselves,  we  find ourselves exhausted and tired, cranky and with no energy left to…

There are lots of things vying for our attention, sometimes the essentials are sacrificed; the small stuff…

Forward 2016

“Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 3:13-14) Happy New Year! I find this…

Accept Your Weaknesses

It’s the time of the month once again. PMS (pre-menstrual syndrome) keeps me on the edge of my seat. I feel easily irritated and a bit more sensitive. Back in the day when I hadn’t been aware of its symptoms, I often wondered why I would suddenly feel irritable for no reason at all. Maybe…

Are you Humble?

This topic is close to my heart. I used to be really confused about what it means to be humble. Until one day God enlightened me through the wise words of my godmother, Sr. Rafaelie.  She said, “True humility is walking in the truth.” Simply put, it’s being who you really are. Recently, I was…
