I just want to share this with all of you.
This bracelet means a lot to me. Take heart. Whenever I go out of the house I just really need to wear it. I always have to have this on my arm. No matter what. I actually had this personally made at The bead shop in Robinson’s Magnolia 3 days before I left the Philippines. It had two sides, the other side had my name on it so that whenever I look at it, it would say "Take heart, Ghel" .
You must be wondering what does that mean. Well, I got this from one of my favorite bible verses of all time. John 16:33. It said "I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have troubles. But take heart! I have overcome the world." Jesus told this to His disciples the night of the last supper.
The message for me was, in life we will always have troubles. Most of the time it will be challenging, some may have it very difficult and others will just have to fight like hell just to survive it. And for me, this bracelet serves as a reminder. A reminder that when things get hard, and I do mean very hard, you just have to take heart and believe that God will make things better for you. Have a positive attitude despite all your problems. Don’t give too much attention to the negative thoughts and feelings. Just believe that God will turn things around for you. You just have to trust Him and lift it all up to Him. So yeah, this bracelet is my constant reminder that whenever life gets though there will always be something good to look forward too. Because things will always get better, because God doesn’t write sad endings, because God loves you and He just wants you to trust in Him and not question the path He has made for you.
Sadly this bracelet got torn apart so I couldn’t wear it anymore but I realized I didn’t need to have it with me all the time.(but it’ll be better if someone gave me a replacement? *hint hint birthday gift* loljk) Just as long as I keep on remembering this whenever it gets though for me, I’ll be okay.
So if you just happen to be reading this and you’re going through a difficult time.. remember to take heart! God is working behind the scenes. Just trust in Him. :)
How I wish I could go back to the time when everything was still so simple and uncomplicated. Those times that I wouldn’t have to worry about being independent, getting a job, getting a degree in medicine, having that heavy feeling in your heart because someone so close to you just so happened to leave you, betray you, lie to you.
You know, that time in your life that you wouldn’t have to worry about growing up. Those simpler times.
Sadly, I cannot. It just seems that it gets harder and harder everyday. I just don’t know when it’ll stop. But I guess all I need to do is to trust in Him and let Him help me and most importantly, help myself. I just need to be not bitter about life’s disappointments and believe that somewhere along the road.. it’ll get better. That it will always get better.

Everyone has to a have simple joy, right? Whatever they maybe. It could be writing, drawing, hanging out with your friends, going to the beach, reading a good book with a cup of coffee on the side, etc. In my case it’s a friend. I just really hope that this friend of mine won’t leave me unlike my other so called “friends.” But for the mean time I’ll just enjoy it rather than to over think things.
Jace leaned forward, his palms flat on the ground. “I’m a warrior,” he said. “I was brought up as a warrior. I didn’t have toys, I had weapons. I slept with a wooden sword until I was five. My first books were medieval demonologies with illuminated pages. The first songs I learned were chants to banish demons. I know what brings me peace, and it isn’t sandy beaches or chirping birds in rainforests. I want a weapon in my hand and a strategy to win.” - City of Heavenly Fire
Gosh Jace, I love you <3
