Giving Chance a Shot

2017 did not really start out great and at the first half of it, I told myself, “This is definitely not my year.”

October of last year, I decided to explore a new environment where I can harness my KSAs and planned to develop them for a long-term basis. Eventually, after the struggles I have had being alone in a generally wide scope of responsibilities, I felt fulfilled yet at the same time, got bored.

I am not saying that I am not happy with what I am doing but it’s just that I am lacking the right motivation to kick myself out of the bed every morning. Being so self-aware, I actually approached one of my bosses and told him what I am going through. He asked me if I am going out enough to at least balance my work and personal life. It got me thinking and I realized he meant “going out” as dating.

How to Heal from a Broken Heart


A friend of mine is in a serious heartbreak situation right now. Few nights ago, we had an [unplanned] dinner together and that’s where everything flowed. All the pain she felt is part of the process but at the end of the day, we need to realize that no matter how painful and how crushed our heart is, we must always learn to go back to the One who never ceased to love and be with us in all our joys and sorrows… and that is our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

I, myself, have my own share of heartbreaks. Heartbreaks from a first love, from an almost lover, from somebody who walked away, or a loss of a loved one. However, these heartbreaks, no matter how painful they got, have something in store for us – a lesson, a learning experience.
