Beauty Tips

I stare at my face in the mirror.

So imperfect.

Wondering about getting old,

Minimize the lines and the signs.

Nobody can fight nature.

Perfect faces eventually will be wrinkled.

Even the most beautiful woman in the world will be old.

Everyone will look different as we reach that stage.

Let’s not  be too attached,

To obsessed  with physical beauty.

Soon it will fade away.

Do not be consumed by the standards of the world.

Beauty is how you feel inside.

Growing in wisdom,

Gratitude, Happiness, and Love.

Those essential things invisible to the eyes.

Those things inside that last forever.

Each person is truly beautiful.

Catching Up With Cindy Kurleto

Thanks to writing. I started to see through things clearly. I am able to look deep inside and know myself a little bit more. I have become aware of my existence, of the life around me, of living, of being human, and even of my greatest fear, death.
One of the many things I have come to realize is that my life is too short to be mad, sad, or miserable. I have to overcome these emotions as they exist. I have to find out an outlet, my passion, and do things that make me happy. I have learned that playing the flute and blogging are one my favorite things at this stage of my life!
Moreover, I also realized that it is important to surround myself with people and things that will make me grow, that will inspire me, and make me happy. People and things that give out positive vibes and make us realize more the kindness and beauty of life. We can not always choose 100% of the time but we can still do something.
Even in my social media account (Instagram), I only choose to follow people who inspire me. There are indeed a lot of great people around the globe, and I wish I have all the time to write about them.  These inspirations crossing my path are part of my journey. Thus, I recognize and appreciate them through writing.
For instance, I wrote about the flutist who inspires me to do better, Bevani. Please read about her and check her Youtube Channel (Bevani Flute). Now, it is my pleasure to feature this wonderful lady. I never knew her personally but when I was younger I saw her from TV commercials in the Philippines.She was a VJ, model, actress. She has one of the most beautiful faces in Philippine Television. Meet Cynthia or better known as Cindy Kurleto! I do not remember how I found her in Instagram but when I saw her, I left a comment on her post about how glad I was to see her. She responded and she was very nice to everyone. We found out that we have the same birthdays too (and year)! What struck me was seeing how she has found love and happiness in her private life now. She has left the world of show business to fulfill her destiny to be where she is right now, a loving wife and mother. So let’s catch up with Cindy! 

Afternoon Music For You

I love any kind of music.  It touches my soul. It is like painting. It transports you into a different world.

When I was in college (around 19 years ago)  I fell in love with this music.  I can still hear it in my head. I guess, I can never be tired listening to this. It will always be considered as one of my all time favorites. It is so beautiful, I guess a little bit sad. I feel so much love and longing. It can always make me cry.

It is from the movie, Love Affair, a romantic drama film from 1994. It starred Warren Beatty and Annette Benning. The music I fell in love with was composed by Ennio Morricone.

Sharing it with you. I hope you like it. Tell me what you think : )

Day Is Almost Over

It is the same everyday

There is a routine

There is order

We learn how to manage our time

To be efficient and effective

Responsibilities await us all the time

It is how we live in this world

And now my day is almost over again,

I  remember to pause

Appreciate beauty

Beauty that can be seen everywhere

A more meaningful way of living

Feel love, feel happy, feel blessed.

Summer Morning

Enjoying the comfort of the cool breeze on my skin

With the company of two little kids playing around

Hoping to feel happy and at peace even after today

And still to see beauty in every single way…

Have a blessed day to my fellow bloggers and readers

May we always find inspiration as we go by our day.

Ordinarily Special Day

Look around you and find something beautiful today!

Learning From My Baby

Coming from my six year old son now… “It does not matter how pretty, handsome, or fancy you are. What matters most is what is inside your heart…” I was like, “Oh my, can you say it again?!”

I was putting him to sleep and he asked how come there are a lot of beauties in children’s stories? Beauty and the Beast, Sleeping beauty. And he added, “What is beauty?” Then the conversation went on.

Most of the time I really get surprised with his questions! Sometimes children remind us of the purest and essential lessons in life.

Well, goodnight my fellow  bloggers and readers. Sweetest dreams to everyone.

OR good morning to some of you : ) Have a great day!
