Women Who Stay Single Longer End Up Being The Happiest

The Single Life

Regardless of their motivations, their circumstances, or their approaches, the women who stay single for longer end up being the happiest.

They are the ones who become the happiest because they are the ones who learn to really love themselves. They are the ones who grow to learn and understand that there is beauty and solace to be found within solitude. They are those who understand that happiness doesn’t always have to be found in another person.

They are the ones who are fine with having an entire bed all to themselves at night while they sleep. They are the ones who are able to perform all of their chores and errands on their own without complaint.

They are the ones who don’t have to fear being alone because they know that they can take care of themselves really well. They are perfectly fine walking down the streets on their own because they don’t need anyone else to help them get to their desired destinations.

They don’t fear the solitude. They embrace it. They thrive in it.

They are the ones who become the happiest because they really make the time to build themselves as individuals. They are the ones who don’t have to worry about being selfish. They are the ones who get to devote all of their time and attention to their own personal lives and they can do so shamelessly and guiltlessly.



There’s A Reason Why God Brings You Closer To Certain People And Then Lets Them Go

People always say you can’t really explain why you feel a certain way about someone. Why you click with some people more than others or why you suddenly feel connected to a stranger. I feel like God brings us closer to certain people because these are the people we need in our lives right now. These are the people who will either teach us important lessons about life or about ourselves.

There’s a reason why God moves your heart toward a specific person and a reason why you get attached to certain people more than others. When I look back, there’s not one person I got really attached to who didn’t have something valuable to teach me or didn’t play a major role in my life. And the irony is, most of these people were temporary because their duty was to show me a different way and then set me free.

Sometimes the stage of your life determines what kind of people you attract and I think that’s the beauty of faith, God sends you the people you need at exactly the right time. He gives you the answers you were looking for through these people. He enlightens you by bringing you closer to people who bring out the best in you. He helps you when you’re struggling by pulling you closer to those who are capable of digging you out of your darkness.

It’s just that sometimes we try to turn these temporary people into forever people but that’s not their role. They’re not meant to stay in our lives forever. God called them to be there for us for only a short period of time. God called them to be in our lives so they can make us better for the ones who are meant to stay forever.

The problem is we become frustrated when these people leave because we can’t let go. We don’t understand why God would take away something so beautiful or someone who healed us but if you look at it from the perspective that if these people overstayed their welcome, their beauty will fade away, their love will die, their story will not be inspiring anymore and they will turn into a burden we’re not meant to carry, it will all start making sense.

The essence of letting go is faith. Faith that this story is better left the way it is. It’s better left the way God wrote it. Maybe rewriting it will ruin the story. Maybe changing it will not give you a happy ending. Maybe these people are angels sent to you to teach you a lesson or heal you or make you a better person and when their time is up, they fly away. They’re meant to be placed in someone else’s life.

Maybe these people are also teaching you how to let go, how to detach, how to realize when someone’s part in your story is over and have faith that the next person God brings you closer to is exactly who you need, even if you don’t know it yet.

Because I know that the day we meet the person who is meant to stay forever, we’d be able to spot them from a mile away, we’d recognize them in a crowded room because we finally understand the difference between someone who touches our hand and someone who touches our soul.

When in doubt …. Pray

Someone is out there right now worrying how they are going to make ends meet for the rest of the month. You came into this New Year with hopes and aspirations of overflow. You were counting on this month to be “your month”. Don’t stress. Don’t worry. The year isn’t over yet. You have been in harder predicaments than this one and you made it out okay. You will make it out of this one too. Just don’t faint.

Now please read this Scripture in it’s entirety. It has helped me in my sunken place. Don’t worry…

Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? 28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.-

Matthew 6:25-34

Bago Kape

Anytime, merong mainit na barakong kape sa kusina ni Nanay.

‘Yan ang isa sa gustong-gusto ko pag umuuwi ako sa ‘min sa Mindoro. Pero ‘nung isang araw, paghigop ko ng kape, napansin kong parang iba ang lasa.

“Bakit parang luma na ang kape?”, tanong ko kay Vicky, kasama namin sa bahay.

“Kahapon pa kasi ‘yan,” sagot ni Vicky. “‘Yung bagong kape, nasa takuri pa. Hindi mailagay dyan sa termos kasi me laman pa.”

Suskupo! Kung mamayang hapon pa masasalin ang bagong lutong kape at maiiwan uli sa termos hanggang kinabukasan, ibig sabihin, araw-araw—lumang kape ang iinumin namin!

Ganyan din sa buhay natin. Walang silbi ang anumang bagong hangarin o bagong pasya habang hindi tayo handang iwan ang mga lumang pananaw at pag-uugali.

Pwedeng merong bagong pagkakakitaan pero kung di nagbabago ang kinasanayang waldas o di-nakaplanong paggastos, lagi ka pa ring baon sa utang.

Kahit ilang ulit kang bigyan ng bagong pagkakataon para bumawi pagkatapos mong magkamali, kung di mo ititigil ang mga parehong okasyon ng pagkakamali, di kataka-takang tuluyang gumuho ang tiwala sa ‘yo ng mga tao sa paligid mo.

Anumang bago ang madagdag sa kaalaman mo paano maging mabuting magulang, kung lumang ugali pa rin ng paninisi, panunumbat at pagkukumpara ang bukambibig mo pag kausap ang anak, patuloy mong ipapasa sa kanya ang maliit na tingin sa sariili.

Merong magandang sinabi ukol dito ang spiritual guide at author na si Richard Rohr. “Transformation more often happens not when something new begins but when something old falls apart.”

Kung gusto natin ng tunay na pagbabago, hindi sapat na may bagong sinisimulan. Mas mahalaga ay matutunang talikuran ang luma na pumipigil sa paglago at pagbabago.

At hindi ito madali. Kakambal kasi ng pagiging bukas sa pagbabago ang pamimilipit at pangangapa. Pag tumanggi tayong daanan ito, nababalahaw tayo sa luma.

Maliban kung may tiwala ka sa puso.

Tiwala sa Diyos na humahabi ng kwento mo.

Tiwala sa buhay na may likas na daloy ng pagbabago at paglago.

At tiwala sa sarili dahil sa kwento mo nagaganap ang biyaya ng Diyos at ang batas ng buhay.

Bagong taon na. Me bagong kape sa termos. Kape tayo.

Mimo Perez

For those tears I died

And Jesus said
Come to the water
Stand by My side
I know you are thirsty
You won’t be denied
I felt ev’ry tear drop
When in darkness you cried
And I strove to remind you
That for those tears I died


You said You’d come
And share all my sorrows
You said You’d be there
For all my tomorrows
I came so close to sending You away
But just like You promised
You came there to stay
I just had to pray


Your goodness so great
I can’t understand
And dear Lord I know
That all this was planned
I know You’re here now
And always will be
Your love loosed my chains
And in You I’m free
But Jesus why me


Jesus I give You
My heart and my soul
I know that without God
I’d never be whole
Savior You opened
All the right doors
And I thank You and praise You
From earth’s humble shores
Take me I’m Yours

The reward of Wisdom

Proverbs 2-1:9

My child, learn what I teach you and never forget what I tell you. Listen to what is wise and try to understand it. Yes, beg for knowledge; plead for insight.Look for it as hard as you would for silver or some hidden treasure. If you do, You will know what it means to fear the Lord and your will succeed in learning about God. It is the Lord who gives wisdom; from Him come knowledge and understanding.He will provides help and protection for those who are righteous and honest. He protects those who treat fairly and guards those who are devoted to Him…


And let this be our guide in all ways .Amens

AKWPE- 2018 Lucky Penny

Baby, look around
See that I’m nowhere to be found
You wanna feel me near
Then close your eyes and I’ll appear
Dream over me with a tear
Anything it takes to wish me here

Oh, to wish me here
Your arms are open wide
Waiting for me to run inside
I’ll meet you in the clouds
Please use your power to bring heaven down
Dream over me with a tear
Anything it takes to wish me here
Magic and sweet lullabies
Any lucky penny will do fine
Oh, to wish me here
And when we’re face to face
The world…
