You can have my heart

This is me doing arts and crafts therapy. What I have come to realize is that this makes me happy. 

I have a lot of time in my hands right now since I resigned from work two weeks ago. You see, I am trying to move forward. I hope this is the right step for me to take and I just pray that I can find out what I really want to do for the rest of my life. 

January 2014 will always leave a painful mark on my heart. The past year has been most painful as I watched my Dad get sick with cancer of the pancreas. It's hard for me to still think about it. And yet I am happy with the way things turned out for my family and for my dad especially. He passed in his sleep, beautiful and painless. You can't imagine how hard it was to see him in pain and he would feel it almost everyday. He was such a brave guy, he faced it so well and embraced it with so much love. He taught us how to live a life of piety, as it was the most important. 

I believe that he still watches over me. The other day, I found a letter he wrote to me on my 18th birthday, after my debut celebration. A part of it I will share with you:

Unica hija

" My advise for you is never stop dreaming and conquering the goals that you have set in this life. Life is short and you should never waste it. Excel in your field of work, no matter how many times you fall, until you reach that goal. It is not important how many times you have fallen to the "deepest core of the earth", but how many in those occasions you have gotten up and tried to succeed again. From the depth and breath your soul can ever reach. When feeling out of sight, in the midst of tears and succeeding grace, remember this "Everything will pass but faith (in God and yourself) will be Eternal. This is the quest for LIFE. Live it to the fullest. Never stop dreaming."

In the end of his letter he wrote:


I tear up mostly because I miss him. He will stay forever in my heart. 

This Valentine's I'm grateful for relationships. Your family, your love, your friends, your life and God - these are what matter. 

Happy Valentine's 2014 :)

Dust in the Wind

I close my eyes, only for a moment, and the moment's gone
All my dreams, pass before my eyes, a curiosity
Dust in the wind, all they are is dust in the wind
Same old song, just a drop of water in an endless sea
All we do, crumbles to the ground, though we refuse to see

Dust in the wind, All we are is dust in the wind

Don't hang on, nothing lasts forever but the earth and sky
It slips away, all your money won't another minute buy

Dust in the wind, All we are is dust in the wind

Pilgrim's Theme

Tired of weaving dreams too loose for me to wear
Tired of watching clouds repeat their dance on air
Tired of getting tired of doing what's required
Is life a mere routine in the greater scheme of things

Through with taking roads someone else designed
Through with chasing stars that soon forget to shine
Through with going through one more day - what's new
Does my life still mean a thing in the greater scheme of things

I think I'll follow the voice that calls within
Dance to the silent song it sings
I hope to find my place
So my life can fall in place
I know in time I'll find my place
In the greater scheme of things

Each must go his way, but how can I decide
Which path I should take, who will be my guide
I need some kind of star to lead me somewhere far
To find a higher dream in the greater scheme of things

The road before me bends, I don't know what I'll find
Will I meet a friend or ghosts I left behind
Should I even be surprised that You're with me in disguise
For it's Your hand I have seen in the greater scheme of things (REFRAIN 1)

For Yours is the voice in my deepest dreams
You are the heart, the very heart
Of the greater scheme of things (REFRAIN 1)

Why don't we follow the voice that calls within
Dance to the silent song it sings
One day we'll find our place
For all things fall in place
For all things have a place
In the greater scheme of things
