Affirmations are a great way to change your mindset to help your body heal. Affirmations are positive statements that we repeat to ourselves repeatedly to reprogram how we think to help us attract more of what we want in our lives.
Here are a few affirmations that have worked wonders for me. When we find ourselves frustrated, lacking purpose, or filled with doubt, it’s often because we feel like we’re flying on a cloud that’s constantly getting sucked up by bigger and bigger clouds that pull at us.
Mother Nature likes having us around. She put us here in this…
I have been writing a lot lately, for me it is therapy. I want to come out, that I also happen to be a non-white person living in the Philippines. I am a Filipino who happens to write, or should I say, a Filipino writer.
English isn’t my first language but having been born from a different generation, I grew up with it. I learned it in school and at home. English is my second language. I’ve always read American authors. I watched American movies and even as I write this today, I am listening to American music.
I have been too busy writing stories that it was only yesterday that I was on the Medium mobile app. I usually read on my laptop, and I guess it’s part of being an older person. But, unfortunately, I can’t read on the small screen of my phone.
The only way to write is to read more, and there are too many gifted writers here on Medium.
I only found out today, after…
As she breathes her last, my MOM was surrounded by us — her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. She was never alone.
My parents separated when I was 12, and I never asked my MOM if she ever feared being alone. When she died, she was 81 years old. And even if she had that fear, she never showed it, and it never happened. She was not alone.
Today, I had a short conversation with a neighbor. I hardly know her. We were both outside taking care of our plants. Like many people, we have become plant parents.
Every day if…
If there is a word that everyone on a call right now knows, it is Zoom. The world wouldn’t have survived without the technology of video calls, and businesses worldwide use Zoom for online meetings. Still, it is also how CNN’s chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin lost his job at The New Yorker.
Unlike this cute video of a child “interrupting” a BBC News interview, this one is why you never let yourself get caught with your pants down.
I have a friend who refuses to be on camera whenever he is in Zoom meetings. He often tells me they…
In the movie, My Best Friend’s Wedding,
“-Michael O’Neill: Kimmy says if you love someone you say it, you say it right then, out loud. Otherwise, the moment just…
- Julianne Potter: Passes you by.
In the world we live today, what is news at this very moment is gone in a few seconds, and if you are a writer, there will be stories, as the movie says, passes you by.
I have so many stories I want to write. Some need research, and sometimes I abandon the story until I discovered something new about Medium Shortform.
A few days ago, a singer gave these inspiring words, and I hope if you are reading this, it means like myself; you need to hear these words.
In July, when I celebrate my 52nd birthday, it will be my first birthday without my mom to greet me with a Happy Birthday. She died in February.
I am nice, but not as nice as most people think. A few weeks ago, I chose to let go of friends. It wasn’t an easy decision, but it felt right, and even as I share this with you, it feels right.
And now I am happier alone, and not having the need to adjust to fit in their concept of what I should be, or become their clone and worse, be part of a secret society that practices pseudoscience, is like being set free from the clutches of evil.
