If you had a day to volunteer, where would you volunteer?

If I had to volunteer...

I would volunteer for an NGO, especially the one called YouthAid Philippines! :)

or I would volunteer to teach underprivileged children. Always loved doing that.

A time to be heroes

Life as we know it

People have just got to trust life. Life knows what it is doing. After all, it just takes it's direction from where you aim it. It may throw you to happy times, and it may throw you more crap than you wanted. Life takes it's form from who you are, and sometimes, people just need to back off a little and appreciate where life took them. If life took the scenic route, reminisce on the memories that made you smile, and if life took a bumpy ride, remember and treasure the things that made you strong enough to see it through.

So whether you're still riding the life's wave, or just starting to aim life at a certain direction, or even standing on where life already took you, appreciate it. There is beauty there. There is happiness there. Life is intrinsically positive, so should you. :)

Life is where you aim it.

Are you ready? Ok, aim...go! Ride life with a smile. I'll be catching you all on the flipside. :)

What time does to the forgotten

They get ignored. I apologize for not paying much attention to this blog. I have never been a responsible blogger since I never update regularly (if you call every few months regular, then I'm in the clear). But months ago I made a promise to use this blog for a purpose, and even if no one reads it, I'm still pushing for it.

Negativity was never my strongest suit, but here I go!

Due to recent events, both inside and outside of my circles of influence, I realized that there is a lot of depressing and dismal things going around that it can drive any person to the brink of hopelessness. I can't say I blame them. No matter how a person like me says that everything will be alright, I know that in some cases, it doesn't. Most of the time, it gets REALLY harder. So as time continues, we tend to forget that there is that proverbial light at the end of the tunnel. After all, when you're so deep in the dark, that light seems too faint to grasp.

So people get stuck. They join in being forgotten like the light they once had. They hide themselves in their routines, their plastic smiles, their once bright memories. Sometimes people just choose to hide in the dark alone.

but the thing is...YOU ARE NOT ALONE!

Everyone is finding their way through the dark. The light is not at the end of the tunnel, in my opinion, it's in finding a hand to hold on to in this darkness. It's feeling warmth in this cold. It's never forgetting the hands you have held on to. So find solace in the hands that you hold. It is in solitude, rather than being alone, that you see better in the dark.

So in these dark times, we can help each other be each other's light. It will be difficult, and like I said, it's going to get worse before it actually lightens up but we have each other. Always remember that you have people willing to hold your hand. People who remember you before the darkness. And that, my friend, makes all the difference.


It'll make the darkness that much brighter.
