Drops of Kindness

(c) personalexcellence.co

Even a drop of water
creates ripples
More so
an act of kindness
however little


In response to The Daily Post prompt: Drop

Sharing this lovely quote from His Holiness during his speech in an interfaith gathering on May 2013. Let’s send some drops of kindness today! 😄❤️❤️❤️

Per le belle donne del mondo…

International Women’s Day is a worldwide event that celebrates women’s achievements – from the political to the social – while calling for gender equality. It has been observed since the early 1900s and is now recognised each year on March 8. (Source)

So today, I decided to dedicate my posts to every beautiful, independent, and strong women around the globe. Here are some inspiring messages for all. 🙂

On being the type of woman

Sarah Kay was the first person who introduced me to Spoken Word Poetry years ago. Her works are awesome and heartfelt. Here’s a lovely piece she wrote and performed for the Button Poetry that speaks on what type of woman we are meant to be. ❤️❤️❤️

 

On being stereotyped by men

Most men, well, maybe those that I’ve met so far, view women as some damsel in distress in dire need of a knight in shining armor. Truth is we’re not. There are also  battles we could fight and we don’t just simply sit in the corner with a screaming silence when situation occurs. Jane Austen could agree to that. 😉

 

On being beautiful

I think we’re locked in our own cage of self-doubt without us knowing that we had the key all along. Yes, I know, easier said than done, especially when the world that we live in starts defining a woman’s worth with it’s own scale entrenched by stereotyping (the sole root of anxiety among women). So here’s a song from Colbie Caillat to remind us that we are beautiful- inside and out. Remember that. 😘

 

On being fearless

For that love of Taylor Swift (no haters, please!). I think Taylor has said enough in this one. 😄😄😄

 

On finding inner calm and peace

To those who are running, to those who are lost, to those who have fallen, and to those who have found the inner calm and peace. Here’s a beautiful piece from none other than Lang Leav. 😍

 

On being yourself

An upbeat song from my girl crush, Tori. The lyrics say it all. 😉

 

On making choices

Who could better tell us the true strength of a woman than Angelina Jolie herself? An excellent actress, Ambassador of Goodwill, and a loving mother. ❤️❤️❤️

 

On staying on course

Lastly, I’m leaving you with a message from 2015 Miss Universe, the Philippine’s pride, and a woman who is confidently beautiful with a heart, Pia. 😘😘😘

Enjoy the rest of the day everyone! 🙂 🙂 🙂

The Great Book of Lists- Chapter 2.2: Words That Matter

This week’s The Great Book of Lists hosted by La duchesse d’Erat is a special one. The list was suggested by my quote-junkie blogger friend, Rosema. It’s about the words that matter– words that has pushed you forward, to do good, and to be glad. Words that are worth sharing.

So, here’s a few of those words that have helped me make through the day. 🙂

1. Carpe diem- This has always been my life’s motto. Seize the day and savor every moment.

Gypsy Heart

Written for Mind and Life Matters’ Limerick Challenge Week 6: Feral

She sauntered with a heart of a gypsy

All cloaked in music, art, and poetry

She is untamed, wild, and fierce

Braving her demons and fears

With a jar of fervor and meraki


I’m starting this week with a beautiful quote from the Boy’s Life by Robert McCammon. A story about youth, innocence, dreams, and magic that I would really love to read. Every word from this quote is heartwarming that resonates truth to me. Have a great week, everyone. 🙂 🙂 🙂

P.S “Meraki” is a new found word which

…may be quite close to “ardor,” but is exclusively used when referring to one’s own creations. For example, when making a piece of furniture or cooking a dish, and really loving what you do, putting all your effort and creativity into it, you can be said to be doing it with “meraki”.
