A Greater Appreciation for Yoga Teachers

I never really seriously thought about what it takes to become a yoga teacher. The very few times it crossed my mind before, I thought it was just mastering different sequences and learning how to clearly give instructions to students. Boy was that assumption so inadequate! Now that I’m doing the 200-hour teacher training course […]

Vision and a Life of Fulfillment

We often find ourselves complaining about so many things in life – our careers, our love relationships or lack of, our homes, our financial state, the time that we have to enjoy life…”I wish my job did not suck as much”, “I wish I could just go off on a holiday anytime I want”, “I […]

Love & Reflections

It’s 7 am and I am sitting on my bed in a quaint villa in this lovely and serene wellness retreat place – The Farm at San Benito in Batangas, Philippines. Being in the countryside and so close to nature, I have been enjoying some quiet time, trying to pull back from an, otherwise, hectic […]

Feel the Moment

I cannot believe I am opening this blog with this but what the heck…this line that Christina Aguilera sings in one dance song, “I just want to feel this moment” puts my outlook nowadays in a nutshell. That is all I want right now  – to feel the moment, every moment, every experience in my […]

A Vaccine for Love Please

No matter how you try to defend the contrary, I do not think anyone can totally dismiss the statement (or fact, perhaps) that love is complicated. How can it not be? You are basically putting two individuals – each with differing characteristics, baggage, strengths, weaknesses, desires and needs – together, and waiting for some sort […]

Momma-be

This is dedicated to all the mommy wannabes out there. I must say I want to give myself a pat on the back for that cute little moniker right there. Momma-be. I love it. Well, I have always dreamed of having kids – my very own adorable little critters that would give my life a […]

Turn It Around

Okay. Serious talk about to commence (really now). I had a question going round and round my head the past couple of days and I just thought I should write about it. I have been observing people around me go through some of the things I will talk to you about and I have always […]

So Maybe I Am Damaged

I saw a friend of mine post the image below (see bottom of this blog) on Facebook.  Emotionally stable, intelligent, good looking – pick two for your partner or for yourself, however you want to do it. It’s quite funny really how it reflects the reality of how seldom it is that you would find […]

That Feeling of Lightness

Do you ever get that? That certain feeling of unexplainable lightness amidst times of confusion or chaos? Whenever I do, I embrace it each time because I consider it a miracle in itself. A couple of days ago, from the moment I woke up, ran, took a bath, dressed up, hopped on and off the […]

A Bucket List of Top-Line Desires

It’s nice to finally have some time to sit down and write again. I just recently came from a two-week holiday in the Philippines, the last leg of which was a trip to an island called Siargao – known for its laid-back locals, their simple living…oh and their world-class surf spots! It was raining intermittently […]

The Season of Gratitude

Woohoo it’s the day before Christmas and it means 2012 is about to end as well. Whenever I think of Christmas and year-ends I am always washed over with feelings of warmth and gratitude. I have so much to be thankful for and I want to list those things here. #1 – I am thankful […]

Anyone who has ever been in a relationship might have come across trust issues and jealousy at one point or another. As a human being susceptible to every type of feeling in the world, let me share my insights about all these fun stuff. Such a big topic so I will divide it in parts. […]

Questioning the Real Value of Higher Education

I am so amazed and overwhelmed. I was en route to Salt Lake City a couple of days ago and I saw this show on board entitled “20 Under 20 – Transforming Tomorrow”. This lawyer turned entrepreneur billionaire Peter Thiel (one of the first investors of Facebook and co-founder of PayPal) was giving 20 teens […]

Running Girl

I don’t know when and I’m not sure how but I have undeniably and undoubtedly become her. Oh running how do I love thee? Let me count the ways (or the kilometers perhaps). Let me see…it’s 10:22pm now as I write this blog and I just finished running 4km. I woke up at 5:30 this […]

Confessions of a Loner

I must confess that I do have a loner side – or at least the more dominant twin of my Gemini persona is. I like doing things alone. Actually, let me rephrase that…I love doing things alone. In the middle of most weeks, I find myself craving weekends with no commitments, weekends that I could […]

Twinge of Sadness

I will tell you a story about this dear friend of mine. For her protection (and so she won’t kick my ass for telling the whole world about her story), let me call her Cara. Cara and I have become fast friends ever since I moved to Singapore. She is one great big ball of […]

Strive for Right Brain Dominance

If you ask me what self-discovery is, it is the journey towards the goal of arriving at that special state wherein you have become the best that you can be, carrying out the purpose of your creation that you have already figured out, and achieving self-fulfillment in every facet of your life. This journey involves […]

When the Stars Say You Found an Imperfect Match

You know what I find really funny? It’s when you come across certain situations you could not fully grasp and you start to explore unconventional means to satisfy yourself with some answers – even in terms of understanding people, yourself or your partner. Have you ever checked out what your zodiac sign says about you? […]

Easy Weight Management Tips for People Who Love to Pig Out

I am staring at my sandwich and just musing about how utterly yummy it is…the thickness and creaminess of the moist peanut butter unevenly spread out on my thick slice of wheat toast. As I stare at it, I see brown waves of pure delight calling to me. Eat me, you piggy. I can never […]

Your Indestructible Inner Peace

I will tell you why this is important. Because when everything goes wrong and you are left all alone, your inner peace is what will keep your sanity intact – if you have it, that is. Inner peace is the state of mind that you have everything you need within you to keep you happy, […]

Think Like a Man

I have caused myself far too many headaches by thinking too much. At work, there is already so much to stress about that any additional nagging thought with regard to personal life like relationships – love or friendship – is just pure migraine. Too often, people tend to over-think things more than they deserve to […]

Work-Life Balance

Heard this far too many times? Sometimes it is sickening already to keep hearing this cliche that almost seems impossible to achieve anyway. My previous company went on a great big campaign to encourage work-life balance among its employees but then again, the extremely stressful environment did not really help much. How can one achieve […]

The Secret is in the Music

Just a quick one today. It is a breezy morning here in Adelaide and I am sitting at a cafe, killing time with my Bacardi Breezer and a lighted breather while I wait for my next flight. What an ideal setting to write down some ramblings! Anyway, I mentioned in a previous blog about The […]

Letting Go

Hearts break left and right, with even the strong and the seemingly indestructible finding themselves lost and hopeless at one point or another. The truth is, love does falter. It does happen that each possible effort exerted to salvage a relationship outcomes into a shaky mess. It only ever takes one person in a relationship […]

Passion In Your Career

Let’s talk a bit about careers. Would you believe that I have been working for 11 years now? I personally find it hard to believe especially since my life savings is not commensurate to the number of years that I have been working! I guess for most of those years, I have been living beyond […]

Crazy How I Discovered My Passion for Writing

What do you know? This is my tenth blog. What better way to celebrate the tenth than to look back at how I actually started writing. It is quite amusing, though, as for most of my years, I never really wrote anything apart from school essays or letters or emails or reminders for myself. Back […]

Don’t Lose Yourself

Hope for the Best but Expect the Worst

Who on earth came up with that crap? It’s like encouraging your kid to study well for a bright future, but then preparing him also for failure, or telling your friend to enjoy the food and then warning him that he might get poisoned, or telling yourself to trust your partner but be on guard […]

Pay It Forward

Life is good and I know each one of us is in that same conquest of making it even better. There is nothing wrong with that. Everyone should work towards their dreams of success, stability, sheer happiness, love. I, myself, work hard to get everything I want…progression in my career, financial stability, the time and […]

Why My Love Scares Me

Why Worry?

You know what used to scare the hell out of me? Life-changing decisions. …Those times when you would encounter crossroads in your life wherein you had to choose between options that you know would change the face of your humanity. Is it this or that? Should I stay or should I go? Should I leave […]

To Settle is to Be Weak

What is it with people who rant about how unhappy they are about their relationships, their jobs or whatever situation they are in right now? I sometimes dread seeing the names of particular people in my Facebook news feed because I know it will be another rant about their sucky job, or another so-called emo […]

Think Purpose!

Never regret anything. If you think you’ve been through so much shit already, if your heart has been shattered, stepped on, tattered and torn, don’t feel bad. If you’ve been through one failed relationship after another, discard all thoughts that you’re cursed. And don’t go hating that person that caused all that chaos. That person […]

Hello world!

This is my very first post. Since my life-long dream is to get SO rich that I don’t ever need to work again and I can just live in a beautiful island and do nothing but be happy and write…then might as well start living that dream now. Well, it’s only the writing part of […]
