How having an alone time everyday benefits me

Screenshot_2017-09-10-11-07-30The inspiration you seek is already within you. Be silent and listen. 

-Rumi

Aside from being an extrovert person, I also have this mood of wanting to be alone even for just a couple of minutes everyday and it really has benefits.

And i suggest you try it too. Alone time is really good especially if you are in a real toxic situation.

Everyday i would always find time to be alone. I don’t know why, but being in solitude gives me more satisfaction and strength to face another day in my life.

According to some research having a lone time for yourself would boost your psychological, mental and spiritual health. Even just a 30-minute meditation could help you a lot through the day.

What i do in my lone time ?
1. Basically i would find an ideal spot. It could be a terrace, garden or sea shore as long as it is a peaceful spot and i could be alone.
2. Listening to music really gives more feelings to that alone moment with ourselves.
3. I sometimes bring my journal. Write anything at comes to my mind or bothers me at the moment. This one is really effective when you’ve got no one to talk to of your aches.
4. I take short or long walks.
5. Think and appreciate of everything that you have and not those that you don’t have.
6. Motivate yourself in every situation, you are yourself’s most important supporter. Because it doesn’t matter if people don’t believe in you. What matters is how you believe in yourself.

Try doing these simple things and it will make your mind and body a little fresher and more alive.

Love,

Aloha Marie

how books took the lead in my life; why I don’t regret it

IMG_20170907_084846_626.jpg“A well read woman is a dangerous creature”

This is just a quote i came to read during my early 20’s in which i proved, was so damn right and strong it would hit you center-forward.

When i was still in my elementary days i really envied my classmates because most of them has this mobile phones already, in this period mobile phones was still a little bit rare in children my age. So they got cameras on their phones, games which fortunately they also let me borrow and it was my “borrowed happiness”. But the thing that really caught me with this mobile phones is that you can text or call anyone, get to know some person living far or near you. I don’t know why seeing somebody text you gives describable sense of happiness.

For many times i bugged my parents to buy me one, but at all times i got were refusals and i really can’t understand why they wouldn’t let me have my own mobile phone at that age. I know we are not that rich but i was aware that my parents can surely afford to buy me one because each of them has their own phones, which they let me borrow if i wanted to call or text someone, but still i wasn’t really at ease in using their phones i wanted to have my own.

Most of the time i get mad at them for not giving me what i really wanted.

When the time of our elementary graduation came i was somehow expecting my father to give my the gift i have been asking him for such a long time.

Yes, i received a graduation gift from my parents but i was so disappointed it wasn’t the one i was dreaming of. Instead of giving me a brand new phone my father bought me a whole new set of Encyclopedia. I was really really disappointed and even forgot to thank him.

As years went by it was almost my last year in high school, i still don’t have my own phone. but that time i wasn’t that eager to have one anymore because maybe i was already used in not having one. And in those years my parents showered us gifts consisting of books, books, books. Not having any source of entertainment at home i would sometimes open a few pages of the Encyclopedias which i soon found quite interesting.

Months before my high school graduation i have already scanned all the pages of all our dictionaries and encyclopedias at home, i learned reading romance pocketbooks which would always make my mom very angry because she said they are adult books. i was so eager in reading that even after lights off at home i would endure using a small flashlight just to finish reading a novel i’m hooked into. And finally in those times i got my first own mobile phone.

Yes i was happy, but i realized i was happier with books. they give me strange sense of happiness and contentment i couldn’t explain.

Getting attach with books is like entering a wonderland and there’s no way of getting out. Adult life may sometimes divert your attention into some things but a bookworm will always find its way into this soulful pages.

Everything i’m doing and deciding for myself right now are those things I’ve read in books. Books take you to places you can never see in this earth. A reader is a person who has already lived a thousand lives and a thousand more depending on him. A reader is a person who every time he sees a book his heart just jumps of pure excitement and joy.

Today, i’m a 23 year old girl happy with my current situation. I will not say i had a perfect life of course there will always be imperfection but the good thing is that I’ve got to deal with strenuous adulting stuffs with courage and most of my actions are because of the things I’ve read and stored in my heart.

As a reader i have always believed in happily ever after, and nobody can ever change that what ever may happen in my life

So to parents out there, i would gladly suggest you do the same to your children as well. Try giving them books to read. The things they’ll be learning is something that can never be stolen. And the most important this is, books will only have positive effect on them no matter where you look at it and I’m just here to prove it.

Love,

Aloha Marie

Once a princess, always a princess

It’s all in the mind” they say.

A teacher told me those words 8 years ago and it never left my mind ever since.

I always had full confidence in myself ever since i can remember. I was raised by my parents to be independent since grade school, they made me make my assignments projects and reports all by myself and for the record i really like doing them alone also. The results of my works may not be perfect but i was somehow satisfied of the outcome because i knew it was all done personally which resulted me in liking personalized stuff (hehe).

My independence continued till my my high school and college years, i’m not bragging to say that most of my classmates would rely on me in some school stuffs and i’ll be always happy to help. And i can say i am been quite dominant in that category.

To tell you the truth i have always looked up highly of myself ever since, even though i  know i am but an ordinary girl with an ordinary life and nothing much. I did not have everything i wanted but i have everything i needed. I have a happy family, a loving mother and a very responsible father. And most of all it was my faith in God  that was always i was always holding in to.I was showered with all the love and attention every girl ever needed. I know i was beyond blessed.

I guess those were the things which crafted me into the person i am now. A 23 year old girl wandering into the messy world of adulting nooks. Problems emerge here and there that sometimes i would say they never really ends. But then again, every time a problem would errupt i just usually glare at them and give them a wink and in meantime i’ll be realizing it’s totally gone, thus i was made into a stronger and a bad ass woman.

It may be the fairytales i’ve read when i was young that made me think i am a princess and as adolescence came fantasy turned to reality, i no longer deal with imaginary witches and villains but life problems attacks again and again it it never made me lose sight of who i truly was. There may be no villains and magic powers in real life but it never changed the way i looked at myself.

I am a princess and my life will be whatever i wanted it to be and how i deal with life will prove my royalty. And that’s something nobody can ever steal from me.

I am a princess. Forever.

Love,

Aloha Marie
