To the lighthouse

I understand your sorrow
I have been there before
I will be there over and over
Feeling so low
Wanting to die
To dive in the seas
hoping you’ll find bliss
wonderin if you’ll be missed

To lift ones head is courage
A step to destroy rage
An age to never give up
One day you’ll feel high
Just keep looking up
believing the one in the sky
above
Just lift you hands up
Continue to trust
Just keep moving forward
You’ll then see the light
to my lighthouse
He and I will be there
and embrace you with
your new found love

People I Truly Admire – Episode 1

Welcome to my first personal blog post series that I call PITA! I want to share the people I truly admire to all of you because of their great influence and intelligence. However, I admire too many public figures that cannot be shared in one post so I decided to make this content a series. This series would be sharing how the people I admire affected my life.

You are a different one

You don’t always say a lot
But in you I have found love
My heart is what you have won
You are a different one
Before,
I have fallen for words
I believe in every word
but sooner and later 
they have hurt me with words
You are a different one
After those hurtful words,
I don’t believe in love anymore
I thought they say honest words
Well I was very wrong
But then,
I met you 
a man of little words
You were just full of action
It was okay with you
that I don’t trust you
But now,
I have fallen for you 
My trust for you is beyond
It’s all because you are a different one
You love and show how
You give and teach me how
You understand and tell me how
You like me and tell me why
Tomorrow is another day to fall in love
to let my trust soar high
let your few words and actions
of love pour out
Truly, you are a different one

Some people have thought of ending their own lives: have you ever had this thought?

No, I will not abandon you or leave you as orphans in the storm – I will come to you – John 14:18 (NLT)

First things first, I would highly suggest for all of you to bookmark this post or save the link because this post consists activities; The activities suggested are meant to be put to heart and the activities might take days or if you live a busy life, it may take weeks to finish. This post has been in my draft for days; It honestly took me days to gather resources I want to share which are the treasures of my heart ever since, I did make an effort for this one because that’s how much I care for you even if I don’t know you.

Recently, there has been a lot of news regarding the youtube video of Logan Paul regarding what he did on “Aokigahara Forest” also known as the suicide forest. Many people got mad of Logan and bashed him on Twitter because he literally included a dead man in his video; Also, the body wasn’t completely censored, and it still disturbed many people. I personally did not watch it because I was afraid, I literally have not watched any horror films for two years and I always scroll to ignore horror trailers ads in Facebook and Youtube with an increasing panic in my heart because videos these days play automatically XD. I easily get nightmares, okay? I wouldn’t want to die being chased by a demon in my dream.

So here’s the deal for me, while people focused on Logan, my heart felt sympathy and remembered the dead man who killed himself in the forest. That’s why I decided to make this blog post. I want to give an encouragement to people who have lost all hope because I simply care. I want to give you these things I have, but before I share these things to all you, take a little break and do this one activity to open you heart and mind to anything,  to relax and forget the world, . It is hard to share something when a person’s heart is full of worries and doubts. So please go to the quiet place project and relax and even pray for seconds to open your heart. Click -> The Quiet Place Project

Now, I appreciated that you cooperated. At least, my heart is assured that you are ready to receive these things since your mind and heart is open to the possibilities.

What can the God give you when you’re feeling hopeless and helpless?

13 “If only you would prepare your heart
    and lift up your hands to him in prayer!
14 Get rid of your sins,
    and leave all iniquity behind you.
15 Then your face will brighten with innocence.
    You will be strong and free of fear.
16 You will forget your misery;
    it will be like water flowing away.
17 Your life will be brighter than the noonday.
    Even darkness will be as bright as morning.
18 Having hope will give you courage.
    You will be protected and will rest in safety.
19 You will lie down unafraid,
    and many will look to you for help.

Job 11:13-19

These will be the list of the following Bible verses, scriptures, and stories to encourage you and give you hope.

Faith

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1

Unseen Hope

24 For in this hope we were saved. Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he sees? 25 But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.

God loves you. He saves.

16 “For this is how God loved the world: He gave[a] his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. 17 God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him. – John 3:16-17

God heals

He heals the brokenhearted and bandages their wounds. – Psalm 147:3

God Sustains

Cast your burden on the LordAnd He shall sustain youHe shall never permit the righteous to be moved – Psalm 55:22

God delivers you from your troubles

18 The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart, and saves such as have a contrite spirit.19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all.

God is a hiding place

For you are my hiding placeyou protect me from trouble. You surround me with songs of victory. The Lord says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you. Do not be like a senseless horse or mule that needs a bit and bridle to keep it under control.” Psalm 32:7-9

God cares for you

casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7

God can give a new spirit

I will give you a new heart and put a new spiritwithin you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. – Ezekiel 36:26

The word of God is light

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. -Psalm 119:105

Her (Review)

Rating this movie: 9.8/10

Recommending this movie to: University students, Artists, Indie movie lovers, Dystopian story lovers, Futuristic setting lovers, Aspiring film makers, and For people who wants weird movies like me.

  • Original
  • Witty
  • Great music
  • Heartbreaking
  • Captivating

This movie was recommended by a friend of mine, we usually have the same taste when it comes to artistry. The movie was mainly starred by Joaquin Phoenix as Theodore and the voice of Scarlett Johansson as an OS program named Samantha. Let me start by saying this, the movie is unique and heartbreaking.

It is about a deeply emotional man, Theodore, who is in the process of divorcing his wife, which I personally think made him depressed and empty. There are times he would take a trip down to memory lane remembering the good moments he had with his wife. Moreoever, Theodore works as a love letter writer? or uhm.. simply a writer. He works for a service company that writes love letters to the requests of their clients; Theodore basically knows the lives of their clients and is acting as third wheel pretending to be his clients and deeply merged himself emotionally to write the letter for them and he’s basically the one writing the love letters instead of his clients, again – weird. But, a great idea.  The time and setting of this world is way futuristic in terms of technology but ironically, a service for love letter? really? – again, weird. Still, i love the idea.

Theodore stumbled upon a advertisement campaign regarding the newest, innovative,  and evolving OS program – called OS1, it is simply like Siri and Google but has way more senses and consciousness. Theodore acquired the OS and have chosen a female voice for the program which is voiced by Scarlett Johansson. The intelligent OS program named herself Samantha, so Theodore could call her by a name. Theodore quickly made a friendly attachment to Samantha that also turned into an intimate attachment. However, an OS and a human being? – again, weird.

The thing i liked about this movie is everything!!! From cinematography, scriptwriting, plot, idea, actors, actress, artistry, and more. I would like to share this part of the film wherein I felt like I was transported to their world:

 

 

 

I honestly love this movie deep down inside my heart. However, I didn’t rate it a 10 because there is an erotic scene which made me cringe a lot. It is funny and at the same time emotional but it really did make me cringe. XD

Switched at Birth (Review)

I rate this TV series: 4 stars / 5 stars

I highly recommend this TV series for parents, daughters, and sons.

  • Heartwarming
  • Funny
  • Educational
  • Controversial
  • Building Relationship

I discovered switched at birth when I was in freshman and I must say that this is one of the TV series I was hooked on because of the rarity of the story. The story revolve around two girls, which were starred by Vanessa Marano as Bay Kennish and Katie Leclerc as Daphne Vasquez, they were literally switched at birth accidentally and they discovered it years later when the girls were already all grown up as high schoolers.

Bay Kennish grew up with an upper-class family, while Daphne Vasquez grew up with in a working-class family with a single mom who is Regina Vasquez, and with her grandmother, Adrianna Vasquez. Both Bay and Daphne have a lot of differences, and one of their differences is Bay is hearing and Daphne is deaf, so really, imagine how difficult adjusting to that kind of relationship. As their relationship grows, they had many conflicts but soon they actually realise they have a lot in common as well; they have soon become real sisters even though they are biologically not related. Their family story is practically a roller coaster ride, imagine being switched at birth with two different environment or different worlds?

Moreover, what do I liked about this show? I really like the life advices given by parents in here, it is influential, and it remained in my heart. I also like the story about the deaf community, it completely removed my ignorance because of this great awareness by the TV Series. I also like how realistic the acting were; I honestly felt like I was part of family; they are just insanely good. One last thing I loved, I loved the bravery of the writers and director on making episodes regarding several controversies that are now relevant and being discussed worldwide. Now, what don’t I like about this show? since the show was underrated and not appreciated by many people, they started really good but they ended it fast, I always think of “If only there would be more episodes or seasons”. (Sigh) It just really devastated my heart that they ended it on Season 5. I also feel like that season 5 had a really fast phase, but they ended the season with justification. So the talents of the writers were really highlighted, so I truly applaud them.
