Challenges

When you are having one of those days when nothing is going right and you are trying to stay positive despite certain challenges. I pray and continue to ask for guidance, but sometimes I feel like my prayers are not being answered. πŸ˜«πŸ™πŸ˜­

All I can do now is to keep praying and to continue asking for guidance and strength. πŸ™πŸ½β€οΈ

Goodbye, 2017. Hello, 2018!

IMG_8277

Well, it’s time to say goodbye to another year. 2017 was a year of learning, growing and chaos. Β It started off alright…until September and October arrived. 😩 I certainly do NOT wish to see a repeat of what happened this year happen in 2018.

As for the new year, I have one major wish: To have God watch over my family–especially my parents’ and brother’s health. Β β€οΈπŸ™πŸ½πŸ’™

One thing I will no longer worry about is going out of my way to communicate with someone, who doesn’t reciprocate the communication nor the friendship. Friendship is a two-way street, which means I don’t have time for clique-like or short-term friendships. πŸ‘‹πŸ½Β πŸ™„

Finally, in 2018, I will focus on myself. The last 2+ years have been really stressful and taxing–especially on me. As a result, I intend to take more time out for myself and will work on completing a few goals on my bucket list. πŸ™πŸ½πŸ˜ƒ

Everything Happens For A Reason

If I could sum up my life in one word over the past year or so, it’d be stressful. 😫 Only a few people close to me know what I’ve been going through. After having returned from a short vacation (which I’ll be blogging about soon)–which was to help me de-stress from what I’ve been doing for the past two years–I received some bad news that came to me as a total surprise, yet I also believe it was disguised as a blessing.

This quote sums up how I feel and the intention of what is yet to come. πŸ™πŸ½πŸ™‚

My College Graduation

Well, I finally did it. I completed my college career a week ago today! This journey of mine was a long time coming and I’m so happy and glad this part of my life is finally over!Β  πŸ˜€

I’m also grateful to my family and friends, who were there for me from the very beginning and until the very end. They knew how important it was for me to finish my education and respected my diligence to my studies.Β  πŸ™

My most proudest moment on graduation day came when my brother and my mother (as well as my father and sister too) were there to see me receive my degree. The last year has been difficult for both of them since they’ve both been ill. Actually, it’s been difficult for our entire family. Another proud moment that day came when I received two honors: one for Distinction by my school’sΒ Communications Department and the second for Cum Laude.Β  πŸŽ“

I certainly intend to utilize my Bachelor’s degree in Communication and Media, and intend to find a job in my field or one related to it (i.e. journalism, social media, etc.). In fact, I still dream of finding work in the area I am most in my element in. On that last note, if you’re familiar with this blog, or are one of my family members or a close friend, then I guarantee you already know where that is.Β  😎

My intentions are that God or a higher power continues to listen to my prayers in: 1) helping me find a job where I can best utilize my skills and experience in; 2) watching over my parents, siblings and other family members, and making certain they’re well (health-wise); and finally 3) allowing me to accomplish my other dreams and goals–personally and professionally. πŸ˜€ ❀
