Still The Best Year Yet

This year is different. I must say. It’s long and also fast at the same time. A lot of plans getting cancelled, a lot of sacrifices being made, a lot of unexpected twists being witnessed. And well, a lot of waiting done. Now here we are, almost finishing 2020’s third quarter. I’ve seen many and…

Speak Life

When I was little, people were telling me I don’t have any talent. I thought so, too. That is why I didn’t try discovering any of my talents and learning some skills while growing up. I believed people when they said I can’t do something – probably they know something I don’t. This made me…

Inside Out

We are four siblings in the family – two boys and two girls. Our youngest, my sister, was born eleven years after me. Giving you these details, you’ll know that I grew up with the boys close to me. My dad and my brothers play basketball and so do I (not that good though). Whatever…

Where We Should Be

It was our typical morning. Before the clock ticked 6AM, my mom loudly played songs using our DVD player, as if she wanted our neighbors to know her current playlist. I’m a light sleeper and a little noise wakes me up. Yet, my body refused and I was telling myself, “You can still have five…

Journaling to My New Season

Late last year, I was very determined and was entirely sure of something like I’ve never been. I knew what I wanted to do. I knew it was the next step I needed to take. Unlike my usual self, though I knew where I’m heading, I didn’t have any backup plan. It was crazy. Never…

Something To Do

People in the house. Cold furnitures and blank walls. Cuddly pets. Inviting  fridge. Hot coffee. Crisp pages. Long sleeps. It has been weeks now since people across the globe started quarantine.  A lot of us may feel frustrated of not being able to go out. “I did almost everything to fight boredom. What else can…

This is Our Time

(c) World Health Organization COVID-19 has already been classified a pandemic —meaning, it has already become a worldwide concern. With the increasing concern comes the increasing…

Only Believe

Late last year, I was given an opportunity to share a bit at church about a thing that really spoke to me of which I’m very passionate of sharing to others, as a part of the training we have at Bible College. When I got scheduled, I was just so excited to do it. For…

To A New Adventure

It is still crystal clear. Four years ago, as a fresh graduate, I was very hopeful of the amazing journey ahead of me. I said to myself, “This should be easy! People say when you graduate with good grades, job offers follow you.” But, reality hit me hard. I was wrong. I was very wrong….

Closing With a Grateful Heart

Few weeks ago, somebody said to me, “Idyll, the year is so fast. Its first day felt like yesterday.”. I love conversations like this. It may sound shallow but is actually deep. Those words actually had me thinking “How has my year been?”. Before I got lost in my own thoughts, I went back to…
