A Healthy Self-Reminder

You will never feel accomplished if you will always compare yourself to other people’s achievements. The only person that you should try to be better than is yourself yesterday. Do what you have to do. Work hard in silence. Even if others do not notice your hard work, always remember that Jehovah sees everything that you do and will always look on what’s inside your heart. Do not become that green-eyed monster. Instead, rejoice with other people’s success. Be happy for them and be inspired. Soon enough, without you really noticing, you have served as an inspiration to other people as well. 

Yes KC! Kaya natin ‘yan. :))


I Was

I am your cellphone wallpaper.

I am your favorite tune.

I am your lullaby.

I am your pillow.

I am the hidden photo on the pages of your book.

Then I became the calls you’re avoiding to take.

The unread messages in your inbox.

And then the name that causes you chest pain.

I was once all the beautiful things.

I’m afraid that soon I’ll be the memories buried deep in the back of your head,

And that small box hidden under your bed.
