The Feast

Today is a very special day for me. I finally attended The Feast! Yehey….

A couple of years ago, a friend of mine discussed to me what The Feast was all about. I kept on saying that I wanted to attend but for some weird reasons I didn’t do anything to make that happen. Maybe I just don’t want it that much that I didn’t even pay attention on how could I possibly put it into reality.

My desire to be part of The Feast died for a couple of years. For me my life was too busy to really go out of my way just to make things happen. Those were also the years that I got LOST in the dark. I forgot about my hunger in spiritual growth.

Bad things happened in my life. Things that I didn’t ask for but I guess it was His way for Him to touch my heart again and be back to my desire… to feed my spiritual hunger.

I see myself now as the character in one of the parables of Jesus – The Prodigal Son.

As soon as I enter the PICC, Plenary Hall I was so excited… excited to feel that desire in me again. I guess I made the right choice to start now, because I felt I was blessed. I dance and sing in praises. I prayed from the bottom of my heart. I even saw myself with tears while listening to the talk.  

I’m just happy and blessed that I was able to make this happen and I know that this is just the start. I know I’ll be a regular attendee. I know that I have something to look forward to every weekend. Another feast… another moment with God.

The Wise Living

New month
New flat
New housemates
New ME?

I hate clutters in my work station because I will not be able to think clearly and do my job with the mess around… same thing with my locker, closet and my own room. Aside from fixing my own stuff, why not fix my own life. I’ve been through a lot the first quarter of the year because of the break up and the moving on stage. The past couple of months, I was busy traveling and exploring things around me. Now it’s about time to fix myself even more.

I assessed everything that had happened in the past and I realized that there are a lot of things about me that I need to fix. No one could do the fixing for me but only ME so why not start NOW!

1. Learn from the experts. 
Me being in love recently with travel and trekking, this is something that I don’t wanna give up yet. However, as a breadwinner it’ll be hard to balance my priorities and simple gifts for myself. Thanks to my friend  Gladys  for sharing a PDF file of The Wise Finance. It’s about time to organize my finances. Since I'm a newbie in organizing my finances, I started by reading some self help books (in PDF form) for finances. This way, I could get good ideas that I can use and apply. 

2. Learn to prioritize
Budgeting is not really my cup of tea since I always have Nanay to do the budgeting for me since I was a kid. Now, that I'm living on my own, I could no longer ask Nanay to do the nitty-gritty for me. I searched for a google docs spreadsheet and created my own version of personal budget. My aim to save more. In all fairness, I'm having fun doing the budgeting for personal expenses and seeing the projected amount of money that I could save. I'll be using the Envelope System in that way I could categorize my money by separating my groceries, allowance, bills, savings and emergency funds.

3. Learn to love yourself.
There's a saying that for you to be able to give love to others, you have to learn to love yourself first. With what I've been through, I owe myself more time to be back on track. I was really harsh on myself. I lost the Me in me. I started with me being back into physical activities. I'm into running and trekking recently so I really have to give time for these. Being back to the sweaty activities, I feel livelier. I also lost some pounds and was able to wear my old clothes. Feeling healthier than ever, I can now spend more time with my love ones. Learn to take care and love yourself so you'll be ready to take care and love the people who mean so much to you.

4. Smile and Laugh more.
Laughter is the best medicine. This is really true. Thanks to my daily dose of laughter from Alpha Gagerls (my friends in the office). Laughing improves our physical health. Laughing out loud is actually equivalent to 3 minutes of jogging in place. Laughing uses approximately 80 different muscles in our whole body. The vibration creates a faster heartbeat, increasing blood pressure, in turn improving the oxygen level in our blood which lowers stress and helps our bodies boost its immune system. Laughing helps to bind people together and increases intimacy and happiness. So start your day with smile as this will also help us look younger.

5. Strengthen your Faith.
I got lost in the dark several times and my faith with Him was placed into test. Now is the perfect time to be back to His arms. I make it a point that I read the Bible before I sleep. I'm also planning to pursue my plans of attending The Feast. This is a working progress... I'm a working progress. I need to be patient with myself. 
“Ignorance of scripture is ignorance of Christ” - Jerome

This is just the start of a new chapter in my life. Hoping for a BETTER VERSION OF ME in the coming days. Hoping for a more POSITIVE me. ^^
