Summer in December

We started summer right before the year ends. It was a great way to welcome 2014. Just the right kind of vacation we needed from all the stress at work. 

One of the things I enjoyed and took advantage of in this beautiful island was the happy hour. Our resort offers limited but good variety of cocktail drinks from 1PM to 6PM. So, pretty much you have an idea what we did after every lunch during our stay.

Two Seasons, Boracay

If ever you want to stay in a quiet beachfront resort, Two Seasons is the best way to go. They offer the best customer service, have great amenities and good food and drinks!

Repost: A Letter From The Other Woman

This is the kind of letter I want you to read. The realization you need to have. I want you to know this in hopes that in the end, you will change and find happiness and true love. The former is easy. The latter, hmmm... It might take a while.

 By: Rainey Sison via Thought Catalog

He will never leave you for me. And we both know it. All the cards have been laid and turned. We both put up the best fight of our lives: quiet but fierce and unrelenting. To him you are a habit, comforting, steadfast, and safe. I am a risk, a novelty, a curious little thing, an escape. You are familiar ground, and I am unchartered territory. Truth be told, you’ve always had the upper hand, and I never stood a chance.

What started as a joke that turned into a game eventually became a bargain. I never meant for me to like him, especially knowing you’ve been there all along. But he soon became the drug I can’t quit. I know you understand this part because the things I love about him are probably the same things you love about him too. How he drives too fast that the view outside becomes a blur. How he sleeps on one side only. How his face lights up when he eats bacon or the coffee is made just right. He drew me closer and closer, until he was too close I could no longer see clearly beyond his glow.

You ask me what it feels like to always be wanting to steal one from another. I ask you, do you know how it feels to always just be an afterthought? To always be on the waiting end, not knowing what to expect and not being in a position to demand anything more than the scraps left off your table? To know that you have every right to take him far away from me any time you want to? To not have an excuse for doing such a horrible thing as having an affair with someone else’s man?

I thought maybe I would be enough for him to want to leave you, but now it’s apparent that he won’t, and that’s only fair because I never should have even dared love him in the hopes that he will.

He will never leave you for me, even if there’s nothing else I would want more, even if there’s nothing that would make me happier and sadder at the same time. Even if I’m not sure that it’s what I really want, or if I can live with the consequences of that happening. No, I probably wouldn’t let him leave you even if he wanted to, because then I’d know that there’s a part of him that I would have taken that will always be void or broken that no amount of love from me could ever fill. Him leaving you would not make me victorious. It will just add up to the mounting guilt inside of me that not even his reciprocated love would be able to break down.

You must know that I am deeply sorry for a lot of things. One, for causing us three profound pain. Two, for getting in the way and completely forgetting my place. Three, for not setting things right when I should have. I’ve disrupted your balance and the damage is done. You will never feel secure again. He will never get your complete trust. I could never take back what I did nor could I turn around how people see me. I am now the scratched-out coupon that was left when the dream faded into reality. I’m hurting and bleeding and there’s no one else to blame but myself.

I have every intent of moving on, not because I want to, but because there’s no other way to go but forward. I need to recover every ounce of self-worth and piece together every broken shard left lying. I need to trust that I will make better decisions in the future. In the end I’m sure I will find my redemption, but for now I lay down my arms and surrender because the truth is, I have no fight left in me.

I chose to forgive.

"I chose to stay with him for all the things that he had done right. 
And not to leave for the one thing that he had done wrong." 
- The Vow

Love should be instant and so as forgiveness.
Life gets easier when you learn to accept what it can bring. 
Learn from it, treasure it! 
Life's lessons are God's greatest gift to mankind.

Just love until there's no more to give. 
Choose to forgive. 
Start  planting the seeds for your intentions now. 
I'll share my 2014 resolutions in a few days.

Happy New Year!!!!!

Psalm 147:3

"He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds."

Do not find love somewhere else. 
Love yourself and love will come to you. 
Accept your fate. 
Do not refuse pain, embrace it. 
Learn to let go, move on.
In time, you will be healed.

Lost Souls

Tonight, I pray for the lost souls of 2 great people who died in a horrible act of murder. I may not know them personally but I hope they eventually find peace and justice. 

To my friend, I cannot imagine what you're going through right now as you come to terms with this unfathomable act. I pray for you and your family. May God bless you with strength, courage and wisdom. May you, all, find comfort in these difficult times.

The Mistress

Reading this reminds me of how pathetic you were. Consciously believing he loved you when it was obvious what he really wants from you. He even said it to your face, he never loved you! 

I dedicate this post to my friend who is so smart in all things but love. 

To all women out there, hurting because of their own stupidity, you always have a choice! Stop blaming other people for your mistakes and sadness. Respect yourself. Respect other people. Be kind. Love is everywhere. Happiness is abundant. Do not look so far, love the people who loves you. Care for those who care for you. Love is within your reach. Choose to be happy!

When a man has an affair with a woman who does not match his girlfriend or wife in terms of intelligence, accomplishment, and class, it is because he has no intention of replacing his girlfriend or wife with her. He has no intention of making a life with her. He has no intention of placing himself in the position to be her protector and provider. No matter how hot he is for her, he doesn’t respect her and has no intention of taking care of her. She exists to take care of his needs. To whatever extent his power and the seduction of pretending she is somehow superior to his girlfriend or wife feels good to her and seems to meet a need of hers; he does not, in fact, exist to serve her.

Does he really love you?
As Steve Harvey so beautifully says in Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man.

When a man loves you he does three things:
A man in love with you professes his love for you, both to you and to others.
A man in love with you provides for you.
A man in love with you protects you.

When a man has an affair with you, he is in no position to profess his love for you to anyone outside the relationship because it puts him and his reputation at risk. He is in no position to provide for you either. Even if he buys you expensive gifts or sets you up in an apartment, you have no legal claim on this man. When he changes his mind about you or if he dies, you get nothing and you have no recourse to use your romantic tie to him to get anything.

Steve Harvey says that providing for his woman is “the very core of manhood.” As his mistress, your man isn’t free to express himself with you at his masculine best. This results in resentment towards you and contributes to his lack of respect for you.

When a man has an affair with you, he cannot protect you from those who will judge you once they know you are romantically linked to a man who has a girlfriend or worse, married. He isn’t in your life enough to protect you from the slings and arrows of life. He cannot protect you from people who mistreat you because to do so puts him at too much risk. When a married man has an affair with you, he puts you in harm’s way. This is why the movie, “Fatal Attraction,” terrified a generation of men. When the mistress put the cheating husband in harm’s way, she completely undermined his power in that relationship, in his marriage, and in the rest of his life.

I-On Manila Throwdown 2013

Crossfit Manila head coach, Miguel Dy Buncio, was the mind behind this year's I-On Manila Throwdown. 64 teams compete for medium RX and big RX division. Crossfitters from Batangas, Pampanga, Malaysia and Manila came with 1 goal, complete the WOD and be the champion! People from different crossfit boxes were athletes and competitors inside the WOD area but after every buzzer, after every WOD, they are cheering for one another. That's what I love about crossfit, it's really a community where you form friends and share struggles and achievements. 
Day 1, WOD area gone wild
What is Crossfit, really? It is a strength and conditioning program designed to help people gain a broad and general fitness. What do you do? Pure exercise, the natural way. Work out of the day or WOD will not exceed more than 30 minutes per day. That's all you need but it'll be an intense repetitions of different variations of exercises. No mirrors, no machines, just results. I admire those women who were able to lift weights and do pull ups and toes to bar. Cheers to girl power!!! The men were pretty amazing too! Abs kung abs ang labanan!
I did try this workout several times at Crossfit MNL. Between me and Johann, he is always (and will always be) the fit and healthy one. When Crossfit was still starting, it got him interested but never tried it until early last year and right there on our trial WOD, he enjoyed it. My 1st WOD does not involve any weight lifting. We did box jumps, burpees and push ups for 15 minutes. And man, I was about to die right after my first rep! Hahahaha! But honestly, the feeling after every WOD is fulfilling. You know your workout is really working. Why? Because your body is screaming pain!!!! But I never wanted to get that weight lifter body like other crossfit women so I'm sticking to yoga and boxing for now. But I would still try to WOD with him from time to time.

I am so proud that he was able to qualify for day 2 on this throwdown event. It was a big deal for him because it was his first team competition. I am so proud of him and his team (The Pussycats) for making it to top 14 on day 1! WOD 1, 2 and 3 are no joke! Thanks to Albright and Rhona for being supportive team mates. You did a great job!!!! You can view all the videos in my IG account.

I will continue to admire these crossfitters who have the discipline and strength in living a healthy life. I will get there soon! Lol 

 I'll see you guys on the next throwdown..... to cheer again!

I am not alone.

Feeling lost? It's ok. You are at the right place. This is the right time. Every single choice you've ever made has brought you here because this is where you need to be.

You are supported by the earth below and watched over by the skies above. You are a divine being of light, and you are not alone. Light surrounds you. Love surrounds you. It emanates from your very being.

If you ever forget, just place your hands on your heart. Close your eyes. Listen. That feeling, your heart beating inside of your chest? That's it. It's right here. Love can not be lost. You can not be lost. You can lose your way, yes, but you can never be lost because love is at the essence of your soul, and love is always present. How can you be lost when your full of love?

The next time you lose your way, know that it's only a ripple on the surface of the unfathomable ocean that is your life. You're here for a reason, and you're not alone.

It should be easy.

 Surround yourself with people that give you energy. 
You'll know when you have a valuable person in your life; 
the relationship will be effortless.
A real connection requires no struggle. 
Let go of people that are holding you back. 
Don't judge, don't fight. Just let them go. 
 Life is far too important to focus on anything but love.

No limits.

There are no limits to what you can manifest in your life when you let go of fear. Move where love wants you to move - don't ever let fear control the decisions you make. Know from the bottom of your soul that there is a loving intention with everything that is. Nothing is random. Life is beautiful. Your life purpose lies in letting go of the fear you carry from past hurts - only then can you open up to your full potential and live passionately, without holding back. That's why our hearts break open from time to time; so that we can open up to the infinite, unconditional love of being alive. There is nothing to fear. There is only love.

With you, it's different.

Do not choose the better guy, 
choose the guy that’s going to make you the better girl. 

Every single day with you is just magical. 
Thank you for making me the best person I can be.

Maring PH

Today, I battle with the rest of my 70+ employees as we brave the storm “Maring.” Yesterday was still manageable at work but today was different. I received a phone call from my mom that our home was already affected by the flooding in the area (that sucks!) and I was texting all my line managers to check on their safety as well as their teams. At the same time I was asked by my 7 bosses for some urgent deliverables. Today was not a good day for everyone. Work was easy to deliver what I cannot fathom is seeing my people stranded in the office with no food. Yes, they have shelter but times like this, they should be with their family (aren’t we all?). I know I can only do so much for them. I welcome them in my home for shelter, for food and for anything else that I can give. I hope those people who can help will provide assistance without the order. This is the time we need to unite as Filipinos. Let’s pray for the Philippines.
