Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Hanukkah

No matter what our circumstances are, we are blessed beyond imaginations, knowing this morning we are awake and alive and able to do things by ourselves without any help and any machine are already a huge blessing from God.  Many times we take things for granted and we do not stop to even think of the little things or big things we do until that privilege is taken away from us then we wish we could have it back.

I just found out that we are very blessed to celebrate Thanksgiving and Hanukkah at the same day this year which according to research won’t happen again for another 77,000 years.  In a way, we are a chosen generation, as there are a few events this year that will not repeat for another 100 or 200 years.  Just know, that God plans where you supposed to be, what you supposed to do, who you supposed to be with.  Nothing is a mistake and you are here at the right time and things will start to fall into its place.  Believe and you will see it happen 🙂

As 2014 approaching, I would like to challenge you from today until the end of the year, that you will write a note each day for what you are thankful for the day and put it in the box.  Come, January 1st, you take out the notes and read each one of them.  You will be surprised to see how blessed you are 🙂

As we celebrate Thanksgiving today, I pray you can count all your blessings and be thankful and don’t forget to tell the people you love “I love you” 🙂

Can Money Buy Happiness….?

That is a question that we ask a lot either to ourselves or we ask someone 🙂  Money seems to be the focus in everything we do, think or say whether it’s intentionally or unintentionally.  We go to work everyday to earn a living or money to pay for our living expenses.  We spend more time in earning money and neglect the people who are important to us or things that matter to us.  Money itself is not evil as we need it to live on but the love of money is the root of all evil.  Sometimes, we compromise for the sake of money.

People say money answers to everything and money can buy anything you want including love and happiness. I tend to agree with the statement but the happiness that you buy with money is only temporal as it’s only happiness on the surface. So if you have all the money in the world but yet you are not surrounded by people you love or who loves you for who you truly are, then money means nothing.

I believe happiness should come from within because it will show in all you do 🙂  True happiness is knowing who you are inside that will show in your outer appearance, you feel comfortable in your own skin, to be content with what you have, being with the people you love and doing what you love. Money surely can buy a lot of things but not a true happiness 🙂


Life Will Never Be The Same Again

“Some people come into our lives and quickly go, Some stay for a while and leave footprints on  our hearts, and our lives will never be the same” – Anonymous

I came across the above saying long time ago.  I ponder about the meaning and as I get older, I understand the meaning of the saying because it pertains to our daily lives and the people we come in contact with.

In our lives, we always come in contact with people everywhere, every time.  We can meet them in the grocery store and we exchange smile, yet we never know that the smile we exchange makes a big difference in them.  We never know if the smile we give them is the thing they need for that day as a confirmation, an encouragement or just show someone notice them.  Some friends are in your lives for a moment to enrich each other.

There are people that stay for a while and become part of your lives and then they go away for some reason because the season is over or what they supposed to do is done to bring some encouragements to your lives.  It breaks your heart when this happens because they have stamped their footprints in your heart.  I see this with friendship and relationship.  Just know it was a gift from God for whatever reason that you need it in your life for that season.  Cherish the memory and keep that person tuck in your heart but as always we need to move on as the future is ahead of us.

Simple Pleasure

“Cherish simple pleasure, Live for the moment, Dream with your heart” – Susy Pujiro

It’s not the big things in life that make our life rich but the simple little pleasures, the kind gestures that make the memories.  The big surprises and occasions are great but it’s the icing on the cake.  Our life clock is ticking to a zero but yet we don’t know when it’s going to be,  so seize the moment, live your life like today is your last day on earth.  Tell the people you love that you love them, do good and spread love and kindness and let joy bubbles up from within.  Dream big and follow the path where your dreams may take you.  Don’t just daydream but walk in your dream because you have destiny to fulfill in this life. So, smile, enjoy the beauty surrounds you,  spread love and be sweet like honey  🙂

Have a sweet loving week 🙂
