A Photo Diary | Semana Santa “Holy Week”

This is an “I am so sorry I haven’t drafted a blog post for this day” type of post. Due to the lack of internet resources last week, I wasn’t able to write up a blog post for you guys.

I hope this could suffice though.

I have plenty of favorite things in my life at the moment. But something that I think I will never get sick of, are sunsets. Each different in its own way. But equally beautiful in its own way. Sunsets remind me that everyday is another chance to mend bridges, build meaning relationships with one another and more chances to make a difference tomorrow.

Here are a few photos that I took in my little slice of heaven on earth.

5 Things You Should Do Right Now To Be Successful

How successful you are really depends on your own definition of success. Are you planning on landing your dream job anytime soon? Maybe open a new business? or just start to have a happy and healthy life? I am guilty of looking at habit and routines of successful women and try to incorporate some that can work for my life as well. But it is definitely easier said than done. 

Are you willing to start your own journey for success? Here is what you might want to try.

**Disclaimer: I am not saying that this is the only way for you to become ‘successful’. Choose what works best for you.**


  1. Develop a hobby

I think that having a hobby aside from working your regular 9-5 is so important to have a work-life balance. Find out what you enjoy  doing outside of work and I guarantee you that you won’t regret it! In my case, my hobby is this blog that you are reading right now. This blog has helped me develop my writing and entrepreneurial skills in more ways than one. Aside from my blog, I also enjoy working out and going outdoor trekking. Never stop trying new things!

2. Find a Mentor

I think having a mentor can make a huge difference to your career. He/she doesn’t have to be a CEO or a President of some fancy corporation. But someone who you aspire to be or someone who can push you to achieve your career goals. Always help those who are willing to learn!

3. Surround Yourself With The Right People

I definitely think your journey to success depends on the people you surround yourself with. I think that it is important to create a support team that cheers you on and never doubts you, as you should be for them as well. There will always be some negativity one way or another, but surrounding yourself with equally ambitious people will help you motivated when things get rough! A mentor can also definitely be one of those people!

4. Learn One New Thing A Day

Kind of random but learning one new thing a day will help you boost your brain power. like staying up-to-date with current events! Whether you learn a super random fact, or you are trying to learn one new exotic word from the dictionary, it might just pay off one day.

5. Take Care of Yourself

As your success grows(because it eventually will), you will begin to realize that you aren’t getting any younger and you need to start looking out for yourself more than before. You are your biggest asset and never forget that success can bring some much craziness and happiness into your life. But can also bring stress and depression as well. So know your limits! Relax, work out, keep your body healthy and treat your body like a temple(keep it zen). What a difference it’ll make!

You Vs.Society | Stop Comparing Yourself To Others

 DSC09948ee

I know.. We are only human. Even if we don’t intend to, we compare our lives and ourselves to others. It’s become involuntary. I sometimes find myself wondering why I don’t have the same pear shaped body as so and so does or why don’t I have such an interesting job that flies me to places like this person. But on the other hand, we also compare ourselves to others to make ourselves feels better too like “Thank God I am not in her situation.” 

Truth be told, it has become so easy lately to get wrapped up in the lives of people when our world revolves around the internet and social media. *guilty* From flawless selfies to galavanting around exotic streets around the world, we see a split second of someone’s life and we then start to think that they have it all together. We then spend time trying to be more like them because we think by doing that, it’ll make us happy. It won’t.

Lets not confuse comparison with inspiration. Well, its pretty normal to be inspired by things we see and people we meet, but when that inspiration turns into comparison, by putting ourselves down and beating ourselves up because we aren’t this ‘ideal’, its not being inspired anymore.

I want you, yes you, to know that you are good enough. And you are worthy of things you do not yet have but will come in the right time. There will always be people who will have more or less than you, who are better or worse than you at something, or who have things that you wish you had or glad you hadn’t. There is no point to compare your life to another, because each life is unique in its own way. Our feats, our struggles are our own and remember those things are what we should be proud of.

The only person you should be comparing yourself to is who you were yesterday and who you are today.
