From my lil sis..Baronilen

The real measure of your wealth is how much you’d be worth if you lost all your money.
The most authentic thing about us is our capacity to create, to overcome, to endure, to transform to love and to be greater than our suffering.
The greatest gift you can give another is the purity of your attention.
The years teach much which the days never knew.
To learn and never be filled, is wisdom; to teach and never be weary, is love.
…”It’s like the more money we come across / the more problems we see.”
The lil baby I used to play with is way wiser now…time flies!

This is one of the best Saturdays of my 2012. I continue to walk abiding by God’s wisdom and goodness.

I am simply thankful how I am able to spend my time with the people who matter so much to me – my family. I have been working alot like a horse these past few years but it’s only after my father’s sudden demise shook my total life beliefs and made me rethink what & who truly matters. Life has really it’s own mysterious ways of mirroring to me the bare essentials.

It appears that all the changes are leading me to new experiences yet ironically it is a different journey. This time, all the newness are pouring yet it all occurs in an old setting with old familiar souls. How ironical isn’t it?

Albeit, I remain steadfast. Even if the entire picture of the puzzle is not yet completed, the days reveal to me that a work is in progress. God is still rewriting the following chapters of my short existence. The happy moments of togetherness with my loved ones are blissfully sweet. During my alone moments though, I feel the tug of various options calling me to choose. It is a different kind of struggle because this time, most of my quandaries are deep-seated within.

But knowing that we should live by faith and not by sight, I trust that God simply wants to re-align me according to the best plans He has destined for me. It is not a smooth journey. I am certain that it has just begun. I am far from even finishing  such a new endeavor again. But I know that the odds will favor those who trust & lean on the Higher power – our Almighty Father.

After all the struggles and challenges, I have discerned a new kind of lifestyle. I have learned not only to look at life with the normal limited human vision. Yet instead, I see life now more as if the universe is conspiring to finally let all things fall into its proper place in my life -slowly but surely. I would love it if you share me heaps and heaps of patience because the unknown is never comforting. There are no shortcuts or quick fixes and the path is so tricky!

Using the eyes of faith, I see alot of changes, uncertainties and doubts. There are moments I am so scared to pick a choice. Some of my past hurtful encounters indeed have made me twice wary. There are demanding moments when all my optimistic vibes get sapped out as if the dementors have taken over me. It is such a challenge also to trust that all these avalanche of changes will do me good.

I honestly do not decipher where and how I will construct a solid plan to go about these huge turn of the tides. It is amazing though because I have learned to be sensitive to SIGNS that reveal to me a glimpse if not serves as an flicker of life along the way. They come in the form of inspiring books, concerned cousins, old friends and family. I also draw strength from the bible especially proverbs because it gives me comfort and assurance whenever nothing makes sense.
