My Path To Healing

Awareness of that pain

Acknowledge that it is part of human existence

Work hard

Aim for healing and forgiveness

Keep praying for wisdom and strength

Know that everything takes time

Be patient with yourself

Hang in there, never give up

Keep the faith

Communicate with your support group

Feed the mind with positive things

Surround yourself with people who will uplift you

Work on it

Be mindful

And one day you will just wake up

To find yourself free

Happy and at peace

With life’s unfolding events

You will see

There is truly room for forgiveness

All wounds heal

And love prevails…

Somewhere After Here

Where can you really be?

Is there really a heaven somewhere out there?

Where you meet the other ones

Where you laugh with the angels

And pray with the saints?

Or is it somewhere else any man has never imagined?

I hope the time spent here is not just everything

I hope it is not the end of it all

But if in case it is, then you still shall live

As long as I breathe

 

Candle light

 

 

 

 

Time Travel

I mentioned in my past blog how I grew fond of history and geography as I came of age. They were not my favorite when I was in school. Now I am very much interested in world maps, and the things that happened to these people and places in the past. I dream to see all the countries in the world. As I watch movies/shows about notable people in the past (Ragnar Lothbrok of the Vikings, Genghis Khan, Kublai Khan, Marco Polo, King Edward V, Christopher Columbus, and many more), I can’t help but think of the many great men and women who roamed around this world: the royalty, the noble, the wise, the martyrs, the holy, the brave, the warrior, the explorers, the conquerors, the richest, the poorest. So many people, different lives, in different times, different era, so many culture, adventures, feast, wars, struggles, and human sufferings.  Human race/human lives are so diverse, rich, and colorful. Their existence has been very long in history now.

I believe I started to appreciate history as I started to realize that we are just passers by on earth. We are but travelers/pilgrims on this journey. So in this very short life of mine, I want to learn as much as I can about the past and about the world I live in now. This makes me love the present more. I want my eyes and heart to be open. See the NOW as much as I can, with all my senses, and  embrace it. Then my heart will overflow with gladness that I am a part of this even for just a while. Look at life as if it is perfectly wonderful with all its flaws.  For it scares me and saddens me to think that someday I will be leaving this life, this world, and the people I love. The future, beyond my existence, I will never know, see, hear, taste, and feel.

What Could Have Been?

Looking at my present,

I smile.

I embrace it.

I believe that I am destined to be here.

By fate, by my choices.

To love and be loved by the people around me.

I will always be grateful and thankful.

And my ultimate purpose is to be a good wife and mother.

To strive to be a good person

To live life to the fullest.

To conquer every challenge.

Then my mind,

It took me a step back or two or more

It took me to the past.

The defining moments when I had to make choices, decisions.

It could have led me to different directions

Many other roads to choose

If given the chance, could I have chosen differently?

Will my life be better or maybe I will face greater challenges?

I will never know the answers.

It is useless to even think about it.

It is what it is.

My  mind just wanders and wonders

It is free to imagine.
