The Four Agreements

Reading is my guilty pleasure, everyday!

This might help you in the future 🙂 because it helped me.

Buy the book of “The Four Agreements” by Don Miguel Ruiz, its a LIFE CHANGING book!

agreement 1

Be impeccable with your word – Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.

agreement 2

Don’t take anything personally – Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.

agreement 3

Don’t make assumptions – Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.

agreement 4

Always do your best – Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse and regret.

A bit Diva won’t hurt

I absolutely adore strong and intelligent women, that’s why I love the following ladies:

1) Audrey Hepburn
2) Jackie O
3) Queen Rania of Jordan
4)Grace Kelly
5) Lady Gaga
6) Madonna
7) Katy Perry

Whenever I watch or read an article about them, even biographies it always appear that these women knows what they want in their life. Failure is not a hindrance on their way to the top, hence they like being at their best, giving it all and be a success in every details. Try and try until you succeed is painted all over the place! Knowing what you want is really powerful.

Let me share you a great video about the three diva:

If you notice, they control everything about their interviews such as lighting, angle etc. these girls are no dingbat and knows the power of image and yes- “image” is everything especially in their field. They sure know how to control every bit of it and spells= success.

I just like to share this to you and hope we can learn a thing or two 🙂 Happy week ahead!

A dream come true and more

When I graduated college, I told myself I will search for a job that is meant for communication arts. It’s not easy as i thought it would be, but it didn’t hinder me to spot a great one.
I remember back then, with help of a great friend and a mentor, Jojo Terencio (former writer of President Fidel V. Ramos, not to forget the other outstanding politicians he worked with and now an executive in an International Company) he asked me if I want a glimpse of the Senate. I said yes in a jiffy 🙂

That on-the-job training under the media office of Senate of the Philippines really opened a lot doors for me. I am travelling from Fairview to Senate (Manila, near Mall of Asia) every single day in public transportation. I am so determined and inspired from everything I see and learn from the Senate until I scored a job under the office of Senator Villar. Although I was torn between due to an offer in a Global network that will train me to be a news correspondent (thanks to Peachie Urquiola, a good friend and executive staff of Sen. Gringo Honasan)

Jojo Terencio & Peachie U

It’s hard to decide, both offer is great. I opted to work at the government. I was thankful for my wonderful friends, Jojo and Peachie who helped me from where I start.
I enjoyed the world of Politics and if you’ll read my previous blogs, you will perhaps remember how happy I am in every adventure I had while working for a Senator.

With my first Boss, ever- Senator Manny Villar

Moving on, just last year, I decided to join corporate world in a multinational company. There are so many things to learn and I am always going for professional growth. I want to know my limits…
I became a Public Relation Executive at the age of 25. It was all hard work and a lot of trials that really tested me both professional and not-so-professional terms.

On the other hand, it was also the time I first saw my name in a corporate magazine! It was awesome.

One of the magazines, I have my name with 🙂

After all the drama and stuff, I just can simply look at it and remember the good times I had while writing those stories. Even the interview with the executives in the company for internal viewing made me feel so good as it was my first time to feel like a news reporter.

unforgettable MIC 🙂 my bestfriend in covering an event!

All this started from a dream and an inspiration. I am truly blessed for having all these opportunity and from loving friends who believed in me, my mentors (Jojo Terencio, Roy Mabasa, Peach Urquiola, Bryan Edang, Judith Sto. Domingo) same goes with my family that supporter me all the way! My husband and my best friend, Mylene and Amiel. They are my top cheerers!
Now, as I embrace the world of a full time housewife and a part time writer, all for the best in next adventure I am up to that will make me a buy another designer bag, just kidding!

Make all your dreams come true, impossible is nothing. Learn and master the craft, be passionate, have faith, be prepared and never lose yourself.

Tomorrow is not promised.

If there’s one great thing about me… it is me living my life to the fullest.

Naniniwala ako na hanggang wala kang nasasaktan at natatapakan… Go go go lang sa life! As I always say: Life is too short not to express yourself, to deny your happiness, speak your mind, experience everything you want, to know the meaning of life, your purpose and to send peace and love sa mother earth.

Don’t let others run your own life… don’t be too negative… don’t be super paranoid… stay away from negative people! wag problemahin ang hindi naman problema at higit sa lahat…

Live Each Day As If It Were Your Last.

Tomorrow is not Promised.

Love and World Peace

Like the First Time

Isn't She Lovely, Isn't she Wonderful

Talk to people you have never talked to before, and actually listen, let yourself fall in love, break free and set your sights high… Hold your head up because you have every right too. Tell yourself you are a great individual and believe in yourself… for if you don’t believe in yourself, no one else will believe in you either. You can make of your life anything you wish. Create your own life and then go out and live in it!

Best Sartorial Advice: Keep it simple yet elegant.

(Queen Rania of Jordan)

Inspiration about your style: Honestly, I like it simple yet elegant… I am still in a phase that I am trying to get back on my normal weight, these junk foods are just crazy can’t get enough of… once I’ll succeed.. I will surely maintain it until the end of time ha ha!

Actually in fashion I like the style of Audrey Hepburn, Jackie O, Marilyn Monroe and Ivanka Trump…

(Donald Trump and Ivanka Trump)

I am also interested knowing about how they lived their life especially Audrey Hepburn, Donald Trump and The Kennedys.

Very Interesting people… fascinating and admirable.

What’s on your bedside table: Actually I have a small open cabinet filled with my favorite DVD Movies! Also the books that I am currently reading (The Trump Card, Kiyosaki’s and The Kennedys) my phone, itouch and Dyptique candles. It helps me to relax…
