Putting things off is the biggest waste of life: it snatches away each day as it comes, and denies us the present by promising the future. The greatest obstacle to living is expectancy, which hangs upon tomorrow and loses today. You are arranging what lies in Fortune’s control, and abandoning what lies in yours. What are you looking at? To what goal are you straining? The whole future lies in uncertainty: live immediately.
Seneca in On the Shortness of Life
Song: “Be Brave” by My Brightest Diamond
This account shows so much of my ‘other’ younger self. But, come to think of it, were the days I’ve been part of, the lives touched and lost, mistakes and triumphs, tears and joys — made something out of me? Have I grown from the emotional-melancholic type of girl into a young lady?
I used to gasp with the thought of being a lady or woman. Are there specific qualifications for one to be considered a woman? In the bible, there are many books and verses that tell us about women especially their virtues, roles, and responsibilities. It is not to add pressure on women, especially Christian women, but to see how God sees us. And that is for us to be transformed more and more for His glory.

It is the stupidest children who are the most childish and the stupidest grown-ups who are the most grown-up.

Song: “Children” by David Darling
Happy birthday, CS Lewis!!! Love you!
while somewhere, somewhere
my faithful companion,
my constant delight
like a funeral song
at the peak of day
i embrace death
at the rise of moon
i come alive
across the sea
lies my reverie
and i calm myself
and gaze and long for
the beauty of whom
i am without
