Motivation: My Simple Gift to You

     In a world filled with deafening negativities, here you are - fighting, yet doubting. Discouragements and rejections might be crushing you too hard that you are starting to give in to what your wounded self is telling you - just give up. You might think that quitting is the best favor you can give to yourself. You might be convinced that you've fought a good battle and it's the right time to [finally] surrender. Yet, is everything really worth giving up?

     Remember your sacrifices, which paved way to where you are right now. Give justice to what you've lost throughout the process. Focus on that goal you've been longing to achieve. Concentrate on yourself and your capabilities. Never be distracted by external forces.

Negativities around you will never fade. 
People discouraging you will never stop. 
Rejections you received will forever be scars.
These will remain by your side until you embrace defeat. 

     This means, you are still in control of your fate. You still hold the key to your own success. You just have to believe in yourself. Remember that it's not their disbelief that made you quit. Your inability of believing in yourself did. 

Listen to your own will. 
Cultivate that inner voice.
Manifest positivity.
Motivate yourself.

     Let this video be your guide in bringing back that confidence you've lost and long forgotten. May you embrace the motivation you deserve and the positivity you needed.

The Love We Give: Remembering Snooky and Cookie

     These past few days meant a rollercoaster ride of emotions for us. We had to deal with celebrating birthdays and mourning for our furbabies' lives in between. Switching emotions was our routine for days and was never an easy ride for us to take.

     All those sleepless nights with hopes set high weren't enough. We had the right amount of determination in saving such precious souls, but ended up losing them one at a time. We held on, but we lose grip. They gave up life and it's our turn to let go.

     Money can only do much. It can only prolong life, but can never buy a life. An inch of time acquired gave us opportunities to give our best effort in showing them our love and care. We hoped too much that each tiny progress made gave us relief. We prayed too much that each day passed by gave us comfort.

     I'm writing this with a heavy heart. It hurts me knowing we lost such precious souls. It hurts me even more knowing we did our best in saving them, but we weren't given the license to decide for their fate. You may say that I'm too dramatic for such puppies, but they're not just pets we spend time with... they're our family we share our love with.

     Goodbye now, our little angels. Those were fights we fought until the end, but [obviously] we lost. You did your part and we did ours. Rest now, dear Snooky and Cookie. Daddy will surely miss you both.
