Our Favorite Scars

Turn your scars into stars.—–Robert H. Schuller We've all been wounded. In fact, every day, we get wounds. And a big wound or not, deep or not, eventually it will become a scar. Personally, I hate scars. I guess, most women do. But earlier, my right knee caught my eyes and made me smile. Why?… Continue reading Our Favorite Scars

The Power of a Thread

For dressmakers, a thread seems useful enough, but for others like us, it seems not beneficial at all. Last week I was reading Jane Eyre and the word thread was mentioned many times at the first quarter of the book. It reminded me of a certain idiom that mentioned a thread. How can one possible hang by… Continue reading The Power of a Thread

Spilled Coffee

What do we do when we spilled our coffee? I know, it should be spilled milk. But I don't drink milk so I'm just gonna go with coffee since it has been my companion since I was a little kid. And I am too familiar with coffee stain and it has, somehow, got to do… Continue reading Spilled Coffee

Peculiar Storytellers

We all are. So maybe you won't believe me. We may not be aware but storytellers dwell within us. We all have stories to tell anyway. I started writing since I was nine. I used to write poems. They weren't just poems, they were narrative poems. So even then, though I was too young, I… Continue reading Peculiar Storytellers

A Piece for My self

Lesson Learned: Always leave something for yourself even if it's just a single piece. A poem I've written when I was twelve. Luckily, I've kept a notebook full of my old poems, but anyway, I remember every word of this particular poem by heart because it was when I wrote this that I realised how, indeed,… Continue reading A Piece for My self

Slow Down

Life is a race, I was told. So naturally, I have to run. Not just to win but at least, to stay in the race. And I’m still in the race. The thing is, I wish that the one who told me life is a race, could’ve been more specific. Because if life indeed is… Continue reading Slow Down

An Open Letter from a Suicidal Girl Who Decided to Live

A letter I am dying to share ever since it was written. I thought of just posting a photograph of the actual letter or scan it so I don't have to type what's written in it. But I thought it would be a great experience to re-live each word as I type. So here it is: Hi,… Continue reading An Open Letter from a Suicidal Girl Who Decided to Live

Kadima (Forward)

Getting up after a fall is just so hard. But we try getting up anyway. The problem is, not everyone succeeds on getting up. Like I said at my post Try Again, trying is tiring. Some grew tired trying to get up and sadly, they just remain where they fall. 😦 Good news is, there… Continue reading Kadima (Forward)

Try Again

TRYING is TIRING. Even the phrase 'Try and try until you succeed'  becomes tiring too. Why? Because it's getting old. Truth be told, I wouldn't have made this post if not with Pastor Jentezen Franklin whose preaching Launch into the deep inspired me a lot. 5 Simon answered, “Master, we’ve worked hard all night and haven’t caught anything. But because you say… Continue reading Try Again

Eyeing The Future

Eyeing the future should be in retrospect. Ironic, I know. But here's my point, we eye the future as a bright one, simply because we should. Seeing our future dark and gloomy won't help anyway. Our future depends on how we see it, and I? I see it in retrospect. How? Since I was fourteen,… Continue reading Eyeing The Future
