Greatest fear in My Musings

I am afraid that I will be forgotten. Time does not spare anyone, after all; in due course, everything that once was will merely fade and just be a distant memory, if lucky. If I was not fearful,...

Gut Feel in My Musings

Intuition is an irony. It is spontaneous and has very little logic, yet we let it take part in our decision making. As I reflect on today’s writing cue, I do not have the faintest of idea when an...

Peaks and Valleys in My Musings

I was browsing Reddit yesterday when I came across the post “What screams that someone peaked in High School?”. I’m not sure if grateful is the correct word to use, given that I did not fall unde...


We have this tendency to hold on even if there’s no longer an actual purpose to do so - whether it may be a person, relationship, belief, or material object. We try to salvage whatever we can, th...

Healing and Moving On in My Musings

What does it take to be healed? To move on and be free from the chains that bind? I finished Khaled Hosseini’s “The Kite Runner” this past weekend. While there were a number of heavy / uncomforta...

Walls and Gates in My Musings

Today’s cue is about what makes me guarded, and what do I need to trust again? I think of myself as being naturally guarded. One has to, especially when not everyone looks out for your (or my) se...

A Feeling of Safety in My Musings

I’ve been to a number of places - all of them with breathtakingly beautiful sceneries. There’s only one place I can consider my go-to, however, and that would be the gym. There’s a certain solace...

Self-Love in Hardship in My Musings

Today is Ash Wednesday, which marks the official start of Lent. I’d like to share some of the priest’s points in the homily which really resonated with me, and how these relate to the topic at ha...


Today’s entry will be shorter than usual as there’s not much to write. See, while I have fumbled a lot in the past, these are but events long gone. At this point, I have already made peace with h...

Of Being Disconnected in My Musings

I remember a few weeks ago when I was speaking to Jen (hello if you’re reading this 😆) about this particular feeling of unease. It’s not new to me, as I had similar encounters in the past. That t...

Improving Self-Love in My Musings

I mentioned in my post yesterday that self-love is an area I’ve been trying to work on. It is not without its difficulties, but there’s certainly some progress. A key concept I’ve been consciousl...


This writing cue is timely, especially given yesterday’s occasion. I think despite our fascination towards the material, we all have that innermost longing to love and be loved. Isn’t it neat whe...

Blockages in My Musings

My cue for today is “where do I feel most blocked, and what small thing can I do today to release that?”. I’m not exactly sure what the context of “block” here is, so I’d say people that are har...


This topic is one of the few occasions wherein I am at a loss. I grew up quite awkwardly (weird even), and would like to think that it got carried over until the present. That said, my self-este...

Looking Outward and Inward in My Musings

How considerate a person is shall always be high in my list. The importance of this trait can not be stressed enough - whether I’m getting to know new people, or maintaining bonds with my already...

Alone Time in My Musings

They say man is a social being, and I wholeheartedly agree. However, as a true introvert, there’s a certain solace to being by my lonesome - this past Saturday was a great example. Almost a month...

Body Appreciation Day in My Musings

Our bodies are a true masterpiece, with each part being able to function both on its own and in support with the others. It’s quite a shame that we sometimes neglect or abuse our body in the proc...

Source(s) of Joy in My Musings

“What brings you joy?” It’s such a simple question, yet difficult to answer. It’s not so much as none, given the temptations of instant gratification that we take everything for granted as a resu...

Skill in Action in My Musings

Three days ago, I’ve written about what others have perceived as my key skill / asset - relationship building. I don’t know how to describe it entirely, but being able to connect with others (esp...

Of Anchors and Gravity in My Musings

This is a dedication to those who keep me grounded. While I am quite capable of keeping myself calm and composed at most times, their presence have been invaluable in moments of doubt, weakness, ...

A Wish That Came True in My Musings

There were a number of life events that made me go into a downward spiral last year. All I wanted was to get over the slump real fast since it was really taking a toll on my well-being. If only t...

Dad’s 76th in My Musings

My dad turned 76 this past Thursday. I could’ve sworn it was only yesterday when he celebrated his 60th, but that’s how time goes for everyone: swift and unforgiving. It was a quiet celebration, ...

Relationship Building in My Musings

I’ve asked a number of colleagues, both current and previous, what they consider my key skill / asset and they’ve consistently said the same thing. It’s quite funny and ironic, really, considerin...

Staying Grounded in My Musings

It is quite easy to lose one’s self in a world that places too many demands. Seemingly harmless remarks such as “be like this”, or “why don’t you try being more like him/her?” are but few of the ...
