Recently struggling in the self-control department, I asked God for help on how would I bear this fruit and fortunately for me He answered right away – and it is by immersing myself in His word, daily. Having realized this I immediately opened my bible application and tried catching up on my reading plan (-s, yes I have many. Lol!)
By God’s grace, I am existing for 25 years. Admittedly, I also had my fair share of the ever so famous quarter life crisis around the same time last year. I thought it was just a myth (maybe it is) that was created to scare you from the monster called life. Unknowingly, I have succumbed to it and it ever so effortlessly made me question my very existence here on planet earth.
Whether the recent film or the 2004 French movie version or the 1991 Disney cartoon, I have always loved Beauty and The Beast. There is something about Belle and Beast’s story that is appealing. Maybe it was because Belle saw through Beast’s physical appearance or something about Belle’s charm that melted the facade of Beast and showed her who he really is. It’s enchanting. It’s romantic. It’s magical. Over and over again, through the years, it has touched my heart. Actually, the recent movie left me in tears – reason still unknown – and some learnings I’d love to share with you.
It’s weekend again and it means no other than rest (Yehey!). So I use my streaming account, again, to kill time – maybe entertain myself, laugh (or cry) a bit (depending on which series I chose to watch this time, haha!). As I browse and look for my next target, my eyes caught this particular series that I know for sure will tickle my funny bone – and maybe based on our title you may have guessed the series I watched over the weekend. Yes! it is no other than 1000 days to die (I’m sorry, I know it’s an old series – actually when I told my youngest brother, who is about to graduate college, that I am watching – he told me he already watched this when he was still in high school. Haha!).
I saw this post to make a “reaction paper” about your past relationship(s). Believe it or not, it is actually a wise advice. The truth is, I actually did that (long long long time ago). Yup, I wrote something that reflected who I am during the relationships. I scrutinized myself (I am harsh to me). I looked upon my own mistakes, reflected upon it and most importantly prayed to God. I contemplated on what should be changed, what should be learned and what should be enhanced.
I admit asking the world how.
Believe me or not, my desperation led me Google-ing this phrase a lot of times during “The Dark Ages of 2016” (lol, our official title just like The Choking Hazard of 2015). Sadly, the answers I got are not that useful (well in my opinion), as I was expecting a straightforward answer that tells you what to do from the first day until the nth day in order to survive. I was looking for answers to mend the broken heart, unfortunately what I got just made me feel more broken and lonely.
