Love Is the Path of Least Resistance

  The only way to break through it is to work through it. A breakup is really a breakthrough, if you can look at the other side of the coin. Just flip it. See what’s on the other side. And learn to see the whole picture. I remember when I first had my breakthrough in…

When Loneliness Is Replaced with Longing

  Sometimes in life, loneliness is replaced with longing very quickly. One hundred years of solitude turns into timeless eternity of longing. I am not sugarcoating the emotion of longing. It could be just as painful as loneliness. Especially if the longing comes with no promise of being fulfilled. If you think about it, loneliness…

A Girl with a Smile

When I got out of 5 pm Mass on Saturday evening, the evening sky was still as hot and intense as the day. Usually the intense brightness of the afternoon would magnify my gloom, especially so, when I am just getting out of a family friendly Saturday Mass full of families with small children and…

Love the Best

The face of bipolar disorder is black and white. It is double faced. You either live or die(by suicide) . You either feast or starve. Up to 50% of the bipolar population attempts suicide.

White Rose

An arrangement of white roses drew my attention. I got sucked into the world of the white rose. Its symbols and meanings came alive and started speaking to my heart. The white rose said, “Your sins are forgiven. You are as white as a white rose, the queen of the flowers. White lilies have nothing…

Another Day to Believe

It was a little after 3 pm and it was still pouring outside. I discover many positive sides of owning my own business every day and one of the latest is that I get to choose the time I go home. With the flood warning going on, I did not think anyone will come to…

Will You Let Love Be Loved?

St. Francis cried out over and over again saying, “Love is not loved! Love is not loved!” He grieved the crucified Love of Christ who was rejected by the very people He sacrificed His precious body and blood for. Love was not loved. Christ knows what it is like to have your love rejected. He…

This Is My Utopia

If I could choose my first artist to work with once I open my art gallery next month, I would want him to be Van Gogh. An unrecognized, yet talented, and sensitive soul whose passion is so intense that it spills all over for the world to see. It spills from his mouth. You can…

Love Will Decide Everything

8:30 AM. I am at the bar. I feel my temperature dropping quickly, as my shaking body is about to collapse. It happens so fast, as it always does. Panic attack takes on a life of its own and things collapse at a mind-numbing speed. Before things go even worse, I stop everything and run…
