Don't Give Up On Your Person

One of the easiest things to do in life is to "give up".  

When you can't seem to find your keys or when you don't know how to fix something that's broken, you give up.  

It's sad that there are people who give up so easily.  They don't bother to put up a fight thinking that it's a waste of time and emotion.  But sometimes it's what we need to get to where we really want to be with someone.  In relationships, we need to hang on a while longer and not give up on someone so easily. 

People go through rough patches in life.  They would seem to be in a dark place not knowing who they really are.  It  can break them apart and sometimes they are never the same again.  

If your person seems to be going through a tough time, be patient with them.  If they drive you away, keep your distance but let them know that you are still there.  They may not say it out loud, but all they need is to know that they are not alone.

Giving up on someone you love is not an option.  There are times when you feel you are looking at a stranger, but somewhere inside is the person you loved, you just need to find a way to reach out to your person.

A Visit To St. James Amusement Park

Every once in a while, we skip our weekend visit to the malls and head out somewhere new.  So on Christmas day, we decided to go to an amusement park.  The St. James Amusement Park across Parkmall is still in operation and now has put up a mini-zoo or mini-farm as you may call it inside the park premises.

The kids were actually more thrilled with the animals rather than the park rides.

Cute baby sheeps and even a deer

The park also has a camel, a few ponies and two baby tigers, and an ostrich.
For one token, you get a chance to feed the baby sheep and deer.

The kids got the chance to ride a pony
Andre would not miss out on the disc hockey and Micah never too old for these baby rides, lol!

This was Micah's favorite event, jumping up and down on the trampoline!  I had fun watching her and got the chance to rest from all the walking around!

Micah posing in front of the farm entrance and the other photo  was taken with the intention of capturing the ostrich, but I guess it was camera-shy so it walked away :)

It was a fun-filled day!  Walking around the park can be tiring, but looking at the kids having a blast was enough for me to disregard the aching I felt on my foot, lol!  Andre enjoyed feeding the baby sheep and Micah loved jumping on the trampoline.  But the highlight would probably be seeing the baby tigers and the pony ride.  I would love to go back and hopefully muster up enough courage to ride the Black Ship and the Lantern Wheel, *wink*!

Special thanks to Uncle Cocoy and Auntie Thea for some of the photos here and for spending Christmas day with us.  Until our next weekend getaway!

I am Claiming 2013...

This year will be a year of possibilities for me.  I can't explain it but I just feel that good things are bound to happen.

I am getting ready to take baby steps that hopefully would take me to where I want to be...

I know that things may get rough ahead.  I may meet some obstacles along the way, but as long as I have my family and friends with me, I know things are going to be okay.

So for this year, here are some things I have kept in mind and I wanted to share them hoping that it might just help you achieve whatever it is you are aiming for this year.

The three simple yet helpful rules in life

Be thankful for each new day because it gives you another chance at life.

No matter how tough life gets, good things are always bound to happen.

Never lose hope.  If at one point you feel that things are messed up, just believe that things happen for a reason, and everything will fall into place at the right time.

Encourage yourself to take chances... explore all the possibilities the world has to offer.

This year, I promised myself to be brave enough and step outside of my comfort zone.  To be able to reach out to others and make a difference.  To pursue my passion and my calling.  This year, I will challenge myself to do what others often think I am incapable of doing, and I will not be afraid if in case I fall, because I can always pull myself together and try again. 

This year, I know I am ready...
