Just do a little. You don’t have to start by doing 30 minutes of something you’re not used to doing. Just do a few minutes. Just start.

Challenged

Oh what a week it’s been. Where to start? Well, let’s just put it this way, I’ve got big shoes to fit and I ain’t gonna fit them if I don’t do my best to try and fit them (hope that makes sense).

If you still don’t understand, it’s about me losing weight (and a lot of it). I know I have so much potential and so much I can do but I admit that the only thing hindering me to do all of that, is myself.

Over the past 6 years (even until last week), I have been worrying so much about everything and everyone else around me that I didn’t even realize what I was doing to myself while I was burdening my own health because of my worries and doubts, and that really needs to change.

Right now, I have people expecting for me to be a leader, an inspiration, an outlet of light and strength and I’m gonna do my best to not let any of them down. Especially You Lord. You’ve got bigger plans for me than I do myself and I’m gonna do my part to make them come to pass. I’m not gonna write about this and let it be, I’m gonna show everybody that I can be better, that I am better.

What’s of worth to Thalia? Entry number 2 

Like dad is always never ready for taking pictures. 😑 oh well, I still love him. 😁😝💕 Happy family, happy life. ☺️❤️ #appreciationtuesday

This is a picture I posted on IG last week and I was meaning to do an entry on it but I couldn’t find the time. So now that I do, I’d like to share how important my family is to me.

I cannot put into words what kind of family we are or what we’ve been through, but we always overcome. We always manage to end up happy no matter how messed everything may get and I believe it’s because our foundation is God. He is the one that can do the impossible, can forgive the unforgivable, love the unlovable and heal the broken hearted. He has restored my family and is making us stronger everyday.

I simply cannot fathom what life would be like without my family, including my mother (Celia, my birth mother) and my older brother, Dorian. I love you guys so much and there is not a second that passed by that I do not miss you both with all of my heart. I know, one day, very soon, we will be together and eat those killer enchiladas that mama makes. Te quiero mucho chicos!

What’s of worth to Thalia?

I’d much prefer spending my money on Starbucks ☕️ and have long conversations with the people I love rather than going to a club and drink till you get drunk  and then eventually have a hangover. I mean think about it, it’s actually a HUGE waste of time. That’s the kind of person I am. Be wise, and cherish the life and time you have. To God be all the glory! 🙏 (at Starbucks, Tomas Morato)

Note: I’ll be doing endless entries about what is of worth to me so I hope you like this one. Oh and I’ll be sharing them from my IG account but I’ll add more to it here on my blog. :) Smooches! :*

Here’s to the weekend

1. Ramen Nagi

If you don’t know yet, me and my family absolutely love spicy food of any kind and when you add noodles to the mix, well, we just can’t resist. So when we heard about this ramen house, of course we had to try it and let me just say, I was none the less than only super satisfied. Though kind of pricey, it was totally worth it. I highly recommend you try it out too.

2. Magnum Manila

Like I can’t even explain in words how everything tasted. I was just like asgfjkl! Gosh, how can I not tell you to try this ASAP?!?! Beforehand I tried a fancy bakery called Paul (mostly really high end people go there) and even magnum was better! It was way too expensive and the taste was just so ugh that I didn’t even take pictures of it. Magnum isn’t that cheap but the taste and price are a perfect fit.

3. Mac Out

I got a little makeover (please excuse mah face •.•) and purchased some make-up goodies. Hooray (though like who knew make up could be so expensive lol)! :D

To end the day, we went grocery shopping and my mum and dad were like so cute (don’t get me wrong, it was totally weird and embarrassing -,- lol) acting all huggish and stuff. I’m just happy that they’re happy. That’s all I’ve ever wanted for both of them. :) oh and then I got a body massage (we all need one). Meep :3 

Well, so yeah, I had a pretty rad friday and I hope you all did something special too! I can’t wait for tomorrow! To God be all the glory! Smooches! :*

Take a break

Since my home schooling program doesn’t start till August (thank God!), I have been so happy that none of the extra vacation time I have hasn’t been wasted at all.

And so what I’ve been doing lately is: spending more time with my family, meeting new people and making new friends, getting organized, shopping (lots and lots of it lol), eating (discovering new restaurants, cafés, bakeries etc. and I’ve missed it so much! So yay! Haha), reading more books, cooking and baking new recipes, exercising and playing more tennis, and a whole bunch of other things.

But I was so grand that I got to get away from everything and go back home to relax. I thank God so much for these little trips we get to have going back home. Thank You Lord! To God be all the glory!

Note: I’ll be trying my best to write everyday about my day-to-day life and I hope you all stay tuned! And especially since my old tumblr account got deleted, I’ll do my best to make sure everything I share to you will only bring you great joy and inspiration. :) Smooches! :*

The Fault In Our Stars (quotes)

I’m in love with you” he said quietly.

"Augustus," I said.

"I am," he said. He was staring at me, and I could see the corners of his eyes crinkling. "I’m in love with you, and I’m not in the business of denying myself the simple pleasure of saying true things. I’m in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we’re all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we’ll ever have, and I am in love with you."

Gosh this part just broke me. ~_~
