Tony Robbins told me once, “The quality of your life is directly related to the amount of uncertainty you can comfortably live with”.
This is some of the best advice I ever got.
What’s amazing to me about most of the people I meet and for my clients is that, truly, the only thing stopping them from living their dreams is the story and meaning they tell themselves about why it’s not possible.
Period. End of story
The whole conversation around “I don’t have the time or money” is just not a reality. We all have the same amount of time. We might not have the same amount of money, but money is just energy. And you can have tons of energy. On top of that, lack of money means you’ll just have to be more creative.
The truth is, Continue reading →
Tell me, what’s the first thing that comes into your mind upon hearing these words? Let me guess, celebrations, parties, birthdays isn’t it? But why them?
Why of all things associated with birthdays, candles, cakes, & balloons stand out the most? Continue reading →
As much as possible, I’d like to avoid indulgence in personal anecdotes of love. But recently, I’ve been finding myself torn asunder by the winged creature we usually call Cupid. I’ve decided to jot down some thoughts on the whole thing – not getting too personal, – and see what everyone else thinks.
After watching the sunset on our rooftop yesterday illustrating the beauty of color, only to be soon turned into gray, disappearing into darkness, I couldn’t help but think of relationships. Continue reading →

“The use of traveling is to regulate imagination by reality, and instead of thinking how things may be, to see them as they are.” – Samuel Johnson
Yes, traveling is a brutality. It forces you to trust strangers and to lose sight of all that familiar comfort of home and friends. You are constantly off balance. Nothing is yours except the essential things – air, sleep, dreams, the sea, the sky – all things tending towards the eternal or what we imagine of it.
Yes it is brutal. But if this will be the case – then let me be a masochist. Continue reading →

If travelling is my epinephrine, photography is my amphetamine.
One of the things that I am most thankful for last 2011 is the birth of my newest baby – my Nikon D3000.
I know that it may already be an outdated model, or a beginner SLR, but what do I care? Its value lies not just because it’s one of my heart’s desires since then, but because it was born out of my own perseverance & hard work. In short, the money that I used to purchase it was my own. How fulfilling could that be!
I think it’s innate with my imaginative Aquarian Horse personality (at least that’s what astrology says) to fall in love with photography. I like to see things in a different perspective and I guess my SLR just makes that easier. And so here’s a preview of what my imagination has in store for the world. Continue reading →

I’m walking along a bright and sunny rural day here at my grandma’s countryside house. The future stretches out ahead, in the valley, hills and mountains that surround me. The past is there too, but today I prefer to walk forward: to live “in the now”, and truly see all the good things in the world. The air is warm and dry. Fleecy clouds float high in the bright blue sky, and the sunlight glitters and shines off the trees. In the distance, I saw my cousins playing in the path that follows the river. They talk and point, and laugh together, as they enjoy the day. What a beautiful and peaceful scene it makes!
My heart is suddenly full of joy as I remember that it is New Year’s Day. A day to start afresh and to feel overwhelming gratitude for the gift of life that God has given me. It is the beginning of a beginning, and tears gather in my eyes with the power and sweetness of this simple thought.
I decided to pay tatay a visit in his grave, as the breeze blows by and makes the leaves flutter on the trees next to me. I am reminded of other days in the past when sadness and hopelessness were my only companions. I say a silent prayer for him, and profound thanks, to God, for me. Then I walk on. Continue reading →
