I’ve always kept my circle of friends small as possible. Ever since elementary days, I was never with a lot of kids for the same reason: I can’t trust anyone and most of these people will only be there when they want something. Having said that, it doesn’t mean I’ve always been like this. I opened up myself to people and invested in friendship and most often than not, I end up burning bridges. It’s always been the same, the same cycle, the same behavior, the same disappointment from different people. Now that I am older, it’s still the same and I kept on giving myself and people chances and still, nothing changes. I sometimes wonder if there’s something wrong with me or maybe I just pick the wrong people or maybe, my circle is meant to be small. I always, like always end up getting hurt expecting that these ‘friends’ I call are really my friends so I figured it is better to keep one good friend than have plenty. No expectations, no involvement, no disappointments and no pain from it. I know I’m not the only one who feels like this or experienced this, I hope you’re stronger than I am and I hope you’ll find your own circle. -sm


So after some time, like a long time actually, I am back on here and it feels weird, that kind of weird when you read the posts, it feels like I am reading someone else’s life story.

I do not intend on using this blog anymore but have been putting it off and been holding on this one hoping I’d change my mind later.

There’s a lot of things that happened between those times and I am grateful for all of those things. Looking back at those years where I was and who I am with, it feels different, like I am a completely different person and I wonder how I ended up there.

Anywho, I hope y’all are doing great and in good spirits. Have a blessed life everyone!

When You Marry

When I prayed for a husband, I asked God to send the person who loves me for who I am and I him. I didn’t ask for a lot of ‘standards’ but I was so sure of what I needed and prayed for it. It took a while before God answered that prayer but it was the perfect timing and it was God’s perfect will. When I decided to marry, it wasn’t because I was desperate and I needed to settle. I decided to marry because I love this man and he makes me happy and I want to spend lifetime with him. To women out there, marry someone not because you are desperate. If you want to end up with a great and loving person, be that person. You attract what you are. -SM



Unboxing BYS Special Edition GlamourboxPH

Hello everyone! How are y’all doing? I have been on hiatus and thought of sharing something I don’t usually share and post on here. I know most of my friends and family for the most part is aware that I am really not into makeups. I have been so amused and amazed and so into it that whenever I have a new set of makeups, I feel like a kid inside. I feel happy and I am so easily entertained, I feel giddy. Hehe

It was my birthday a week and few days ago and I received gifts(which obviously are makeups hence this post) and I would love to share it with you guys.

I rarely do this but I need to share it since it’s one helluva great deal with great perks so far. I’ve been watching tutorials and how to’s on YT and stumbled upon some videos unboxing something that is called Glamourbox. It is a website that sells beauty and health products and also have great offers and subscription boxes for affordable price! Yep! I know makeup products can be pricey, like it takes an arm and a leg! Haha.

Musings: Once in a Lifetime

Life’s never easy, it never was but once in a lifetime, you meet someone who’s worth all these sacrifices, worth all these pains and those times that you need to hold on to life a little bit more and overcome the bumps, challenges and struggles along the way. Someone who will give light, someone who is your purpose, someone who will give life more meaning and more happiness. Someone who appreciates you and is proud of you, someone is willing to give time and attention without reservations; no ifs and buts, no maybes and we-shall-sees; someone who always stays and never leaves, someone who’s there with you all along. And most of all, someone you will love and will love you like you’ve never love and never been loved before. -MC
