Teensy Weensy Gal

Indulge in my messy universe.

When I was a little girl, I swore to myself that one day, I’ll have my own ISBN (International Standard Book Number). I said that I’ll have my own book and I’ll be proud of the first ISBN that will be assigned to it. I dreamed about it because it symbolizes that you’re a real author. That you have your work in the market. That it’s legit.

My book has been released, but still in digital format as of now as numerous paperbacks are pending in the publishing house. In the publishing house’s website, you can read the first three chapters of my novel. It’s just a preview, so a lot of pages are hidden. Then a couple of days ago, finally, my publisher sent me MY COPY of my debut novel in digital format. And when I saw the ISBN, I just felt my heart jumped because this is it.

My book has been released a long time ago, but it still fascinates me how dreams really do come true after all the passion and efforts you’ve poured out. I get to have my ISBN (not technically mine, but still haha!).

And just a couple more days to go, I might get my anthology of prose and poetry as well as a new novel of mine in a contract deal with another publisher. The waiting time is almost over. Cross fingers, hoping, praying. And by next year, through Sir Pong’s help (he’s my Film Appreciation and Production professor), a bigger opportunity is waiting.

The joy in my heart is already up to the brim. I’m looking forward to becoming a writer who won’t be boxed in only one line of work or genre or whatsoever.

2018 has been a wonderful year for my writing career.

To the people who have been by my side all throughout, you know who you all are. I love you!

The Reality About Swallowing Painful Truths

… and sixty-eight years ago, today, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe was published! 💛

C.S. Lewis has always been my most favourite fiction writer. Such a legend. A talent of class!

‘The Art of Letting Go’

The Art of Letting Go MAIN

 

Letting go is an extremely familiar concept to all of us. We read about it. We write about it. We talk about it. It’s a notion that we’ve always known, yet we find hard to do.

I was the same as everyone else and also much worse. I’ve always been the kind of person who can’t stop thinking about things. I overanalyze because I’m afraid that I might miss an important detail. I ponder hard, so I can make sense of things that bother me. I drain my brain, believing that I have to figure out things by myself because I can’t count on anyone.

First, I don’t want you to think of those as wrong. There’s beauty in the art of gripping. In holding on so tight. It makes our life bound and held together.

But this year, a wondrous thing happened to me. Someone crossed paths with mine and that has changed me tremendously in ways I don’t even know is possible for me.

No, it isn’t the kind of relationship that you may be thinking.

He has no idea at all with how big of a change his existence has brought upon me. I wish I can tell him how I learned to totally let go of my grip on some things because not everything is meant to be controlled. How I learned to actually breathe because not everything is meant to be ruminated upon. How I learned to shrug off because not everything is meant to be answered.

It’s a big deal because my transformation was almost close to impossible, yet it still happened. Looking back, I almost cry realizing the big leap I have made. I have reached a state that’s much healthier for me.

And I wish the same thing to you.

To you who’s already getting tired of rationalizing everything that’s going on, the art of letting go is just around the corner.

Be open to it.

‘Ellipsis’

Ellipsis MAIN

There will come a day
when your mind
will stop thinking
of the reasons why…

There will come a day
when your heart
will stop resisting
the low rhythms of life…

There will come a day
when you learn
to let go of your grip
on things you can’t control…

There will come a day
when you have no words
nor logical thoughts,
and it’s totally fine.

13 Reasons Why That Third Time As A Resource Speaker Made Me Explode Internally

Been there a couple of times throughout my lifetime and damn them all! HAHAHA! Just kidding. You know what’s the most valuable lesson I’ve learned after experiencing all of that?

“Never ever take it personally if someone doesn’t pursue you.”

Read this entry in one of my favorite websites and your head and heart will be cleared of unnecessary thoughts. Or if you can’t relate but you know someone in your life that badly needs support, share this!
