[1: 2,046 of 10,000] My 2020 Gratitude List

In List on January 1, 2021 at 4:28 PM
Well something’s lost, but something’s gained
In living every day
I’ve looked at life from both sides now
From win and lose and still somehow
It’s life’s illusions I recall
I really don’t know life at all
  1. I started learning to listen to my intuition and recognize my power to co-create the life that gives me joy.
  2. I feel so blessed having the freedom to do what I truly desire.
  3. I experience a beautiful trip in Japan on February and immerse in new experiences.
  4. I have the chance to be still and dig deep of what I came into this life for.
  5. I have written so many words and read beautiful wisdom that opened my heart and my mind.
  6. I honor the sacredness of everything and could reach the sweet spot of immense peace.
  7. I learned that I came here to be a Lightworker and an Earth Angel.
  8. I have given myself with so much unconditional love that I was able to see my fear, being gentle to me, and have forgiven myself.
  9. I believe in magic and my faith for love keeps growing stronger.
  10. I am finally choosing to live. I wake up with a purpose to feel alive because I now understood I have chosen in the very beginning to be here right now.

The moment I thought I know something, I know I’m just in the precipice of another glorious surprise that life would like to live through me. Only when I am present in every fleeting moment that I get to bathe in the blissful PEACE every human soul longs for.

There is a feeling of lightness in my life including believing that I am blessed, I am joyful, and that a fire of passion burns within me that beyond doubt give me the push that I can accomplish anything. I am so grateful right now!

I keep an image of a quote from Oprah Winfrey that says, “I started out giving thanks for small things, and the more thankful I became, the more my bounty increased. That’s because what you focus on expands, and when you focus on the goodness in your life, you create more of it. Opportunities, relationships, even money flowed my way when I learned to be grateful no matter what happened in my life.”

The first time I read it, I always thought, it would be nice to reach that place where I am able to be grateful all the time, without the constant complain of what is going wrong, but seeing solutions and yes, simply being grateful.

Now that I read it again, since I am experiencing it, I understood the soul of those words. It speaks not only about the abundance of wealth (obviously what I am after so I can get out of the rat race), but the outpouring of peace that makes everything simple, not necessarily easy, because I have to still put in my beautiful efforts.

It is indeed a beautiful life if we know what exactly to tap.

[1: 1,591 of 10,000] I Couldn’t Understand Gratitude Before Until God Changed My Understanding

I couldn’t understand the real utterence of deep gratitude before because I was too busy inspecting what is lacking and should bes in my life. The words of Bo Sanchez below sums up what true wealth is –

Wealth is an inner feeling. More precisely, wealth is an outlook, an attitude, a belief. And the most obvious measurement of wealth is gratitude.

Remember this powerful truth: Your Wealth equals your Gratitude. And your Gratitude equals your Wealth.

Whatever my circumstance is as long as I wake up for the day, I have to show up and able to give thanks. I have struggled in years with just human eyes and a silly ego to refer on how I live my life. It is until I seek God’s divine intervention, to humby ask for the Holy Spirit for guidance that I have a heaven’s eyes and could not even believe it was me hindering myself to the available graces.

I often make my own sufferings when I believe the stories I create in my head that were the past or have never happened. I make life harder when I keep dwelling on the negative matters. I will lose the battle when I ‘thought’ I will have to do it alone when in fact God is just waiting for me to call on Him and help me with my decisions, guide me to see love, and have the courage to take on my anointment according to His plan. The beauty of His plan despite not being able to understand it is they are good.

What’s the point of worrying what people say about me by following him when at the beginning of my new life after here on Earth doesn’t really matter? Why do I have to be scared to walk in a shadow when I know that a light is with me if I just recognise it?

I am deeply loved and every moment that I breathe I remember that and it is more than enough reason to be always grateful. Thank you God for breaking my walls. Thank you God for changing my understanding and slowly seeing your perfect perspectives. Thank you God for loving me without any conditions.

Thank you very much for every one who visited my blog, clicked the “like,” left a “comment,” and stepped even further by “subscribing.” It’s heart warming knowing someone took the time to leave a piece of themselves for me. I am only a stranger with the absence of my name-as-written-on-my-registered-official-birth-certificate in this blog; but every feeling I have poured translated into every post where genuine and so you have met my heart.

It is fascinating that people from different countries get directed to my blog. The point that they have liked a post makes me feel that you have understood me and I hope in return I have given something to you too that you appreciate or I have awaken something in you that made you smile a little more and your heart magically expands and glows a little more.

There are moments that those mini effort that you have made, my visitors, immensely gave gratification and add hope in me to move on forward. The most memorable “like” are for the posts that I bared my vulnerabilities and shaming myself online just to see my actions in words and the point that someone read and liked it, kept me a little stronger to decide wisely of my next actions.

Thank you very much.

[1: 440 of 10,000] In Honor of My 10,000 Hits

Disclaimer: I have to be honest I may have visited my own blog without signing in first but not intentional though for less than 16 times (?) I hope not more! Browsing on BlackBerry, iPod, expired signed-in, and not on my own laptop made me commit that silly mistake. And Spammers they sure are included.

Setting human mistakes aside, I am honoring my 10,000 hits (see bottom right of this page) that is somehow my closest achievement to my blog title 10,000 (which is really for the count of my posts, to date 9,560 to go), I would like to mention what are my feelings for the whole blogging experience especially considering the people in the blogosphere world.

Blogging is my daily guilt-free cake. In my happiest times or saddest moments, blogging give me a unique kind of high to type the words and share to the world. It’s my solace and a true expression of my feelings. Keeping everything anonymous as much as possible is not cowardly but I’ve witness love and hate knows no one language so I speak the same experience – human. There are moments that I reached a dead end (out of idea or my muse gone AWOL) but my commitment for at least a daily post is too strong that I have to still be creative and come up with words or photo, I just can’t have any excuse, do you say stop for breathing for something you love? I can’t!

WordPress Team is my blog-guardian angels. I’ve always love blogging at WordPress because it is easy to use and I got the perfect template that suits my need! I am thankful not only for the platform but for the people behind it.

  • Scott Berkun is the man! He introduced The Daily Post as inspiration for 2011 and it helped me with my goal to at least post a day. He is humble, supportive, and I felt glad when he gets to visit my blog and clicked a few likes (ok a total of 4 and it made me feel great that a professional writer dropped by and liked what I wrote and published). I am excited everyday to find out what’s the topic that would encourage writers to pour their ideas whether through a blog post or from the comments. I even challenge myself to answer prompts that doesn’t interest me a bit because I’d like to see how wide is my imagination and creativity. Read the rest of this entry »
