Growth.

Do you guys ever get the feeling when you’re going somewhere and you’re so lost in thought that you don’t really pay attention to what’s going on until you finally arrive at your destination? I think I entered the new year this way except I wasn’t so lost in thought but instead I believe the new year came very candidly to me. Sort of…

Heart of Gratitude.

I would consider myself a pessimist and I have a hard time looking at the positive side of things. And so, I think there are many things that go unnoticed for me. This year has been tough but I think I made it tougher than it should’ve been. The more I am unaware of the good things around me, the more I magnify the…

Breathing, Moving, Living, etc.

Hello everyone! I know it’s been a while and I feel like I’m always apologizing for not posting often. I’m sorry! I recently went to an art/botanical garden exhibit and I wanted to share some photos with you guys. Out of everything there, I found the Japanese and Chinese gardens just so stunning! So here are the pictures for that. I hope you guys…

Silence In The Morning.

Ever since Spring semester started I’ve been trying to wake up earlier, fix myself a simple breakfast, and brew a cup of coffee each morning. I think it’s been good for me because it gives me time to think as I give myself up to its silence. There are things I find during this time. Sometimes, I uncover peace and other times grief is…

Sinking, Floating, etc.

Hello everyone! I hope all of you guys have been doing well. I know it’s been a long time since New Years. I miss interacting with all of you. I’ve been pretty stressed out this week and so this weekend I went to a museum in LA called The Broad. It was definitely refreshing for me and a good change of scenery. For those…

The Year’s End.

Hello everyone! Sorry I’ve been gone for such a long time. I’ve just been so busy and I just got back from a retreat. Lately, I feel like I don’t know how to start my posts without an apology. I will work on that. 2015 is now officially over and 2016 is here to greet us. Honestly, it feels surreal. It hasn’t hit me…

December’s Musing.

Hey guys! I know I haven’t posted in a while. I’ve just been so busy lately, but I’m officially on winter break! It feels so good to relax until I go back for Spring semester. I’ve actually been finished with school since last week but haven’t gotten around posting until now. To be quite honest, I’ve been very stressed and a bit depressed lately….

Photo Challenge: Eye Spy.

I’ve never done a photo challenge before but thought it’d be fun to try. This week’s theme is “eye” and I didn’t really know what picture to use or capture. As I mulled over it, I came to choose this particular photo. I chose this picture to illustrate that the “eye” is more than just the physical organ but also a spiritual lens that…

New Horizons.

“Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore.” –Andre Gide Something that’s been resonating with me lately is the idea of home. They say home is a place of solace–a place of memories–where a piece of our soul is imbued to something meaningful. They also say you can build home where ever you like. I’ve been…

Breathe.

Hey guys! It’s been such a hectic week for me. I realized I’ve been starting all of my recent posts with this sort of introduction. I do apologize for sounding so downcast. Much like the past few weeks, I’ve been studying, studying, and yeah, more studying. Yet strangely, at the same time, I’ve also been consistently procrastinating. Wondering how they can work simultaneously? Yeah,…
