I Don’t Have All The Answers and it’s Okay.

I suppose with time comes understanding , I used to think that “adulting” meant having all of the answers but I’m realizing that it is not so. Young and old we are all just trying to figure it out and by it I mean life. There is no schematic on life , it doesn’t come with an instruction guide , you learn by living . Watching your peers will teach you that living is hard, apart of getting older is new responsibilities. Were at an age where we are finding our footing, building our own stability . Some of my friends are parents , wives and husbands and that opens up more uncharted territory. As kids we prepared to have a home of our own , to cook and to clean and be independent whilst constantly calling home for every little inconvenience. Don’t worry I haven’t forgotten about those of you who snuck out of your parents home with various items for the up keeping of your own home. To think that here we are , each our own archipelago full of lesson we didn’t learn with each other, laced with experiences we never talked about with anyone else but ourselves in the mirror. It’s crazy to think that we are each our own allegory , capable of teaching someone right and wrong . I think sometimes we get so caught up in having the right answer , we become afraid to say ,”I don’t know”. Especially when get to the stage in our life where we are someone’s partner or parent , the curiosity that was once welcomed is pushed aside for something more concrete. I want to let you know that it’s okay to not know the answer to a “who?” , “what?” ,”when?” , “where?” and “why?” . Even the “what if ?” Doesn’t need an answer, everything takes time. The answers we didn’t have today as life teaches us new lessons we may have tomorrow. I strive to never stop learning,when we don’t know the answer we’re simply just growing. – Myriesha

Cant Help Falling In Love

Before I get into this review , this movie is from the Philippines so this movies is in both Tagalog and English  so subtitles are provided at certain times during the film.

I want to start by telling you how cute I found this drama, in the most genuine way this movie put a smile on my face and made me feel like I was falling in love with them in a story book way . If you’ve watched as many foreign shows and movies as I have you will have noticed this trope where there is always some unnecessary conflict that last forever so the story drags on . In this film there is a conflict but its placement is in line with the story and it is not dragging on for ages without resolve , it gets to the point. Gab and Dos aren’t your typical pairing , Gab is a stable career woman with a type “A” personality and she’s already in a relationship with an aspiring lawyer . Dos is charming , he’s not a player but he has a way with the ladies and he’s aware of his impact. During this movie we find out that our suave Dos has a problem that makes him think he has little time left , this complicates things but Dos is still moving foreword in his living despite the clock ticking over his head. Gab felt like she has little control in her life always doing things for the approval of her boyfriend and on a night out with the girls she wanted to be free , to feel like she’s capable of making decisions and she met Dos . Gab is uptight but Dos has the ability to soften her , he taught her how to love and how to let go but will she accept him? you should really watch this movie to find out. I highly recommend it. – Myriesha

Saint Valentine Thoughts

Surprisingly this day doesn’t make me feel sad or lonely , rather it makes me day dream and allows me to feel hopeful . It’s crazy to say that I feel like I was made to have a family , no I don’t mean the Cosby’s or Brady Bunch . I realize that as a mother and a wife I will face many hardships because such is life . However I still hope for and aspire to that , one day I want to say that I lived a really good life I was someone’s Mommy and someone’s partner and I had a career and through the ups and the downs we made an amazing team. One day I want to say that my family lived well we laughed hard and loved harder , we sat at the dinner table and spoke to one another . It is said that Valentine’s Day is for lovers but I believe Saint Valentine is for the dreamers , people who believe that in love anything is possible and anything can happen. If you are lonely this holiday I hope that you are not drowning your self in sorrow or loneliness . I hope that you know that better days are ahead of you and that your future will be better than your past . One day you will look back on these days and wonder how you became so happy . Remember that Valentine’s Day isn’t just for the lovers , the dreamers can enjoy this day too. – Myriesha
