My Kiwiest New Year Yet

Above are the set of people I celebrated New Years last night as opposed to this one.

Through the years I guess God has put me in different situations to see and understand the true meaning of things. Whether in lack, in abundance, He always gets me to a point of asking ” What do these things all mean?”. Last night as 2016 was drawing near its close, my galpal Jamie and I were spinning some serious yarns. I love how far I’ve grown ever since I’ve spread my wings and flew my lil self to New Zealand. From living on in the comfort of my childhood hometown ive become a person whos flexible, adaptable, and resilient to change. Before, the glitz, the glamour of new years is a must because it used to dictate how id feel towards the new year. Now, ive cone to learn that isnt. This year, I chose to strip the celebration to its bare essentials: pansit, chicken wings, and good company. This year Ive learned that its not how you spent New Years Eve that will ensure a prosperous NY but your disposition to what lies ahead whsn NY comes. Its what you have in you to face what is to come and that is whats important.
 I reflect on how I celebrated the 1st minute of my 2017 last night~ and it was different from what I got used to. No lights, no audience, no sound, no extravagant parties, just me holding my mans hand as we jumped from our front porch at exactly 12:00am. It was a slightly superstious filipino tradition of ensuring growing taller the next year not that he’d need more height.  This New years celebration I guess is indicative of what Id want to happen in 2017. New routines, new traditions, and welcoming new people in my life, and just embracing all the new. As we waved goodbye to our dear friends driving out of our rented garage pathway, I whispered to my man how it would feel if we were waving out to them at our own house when we get our own place. He smiled at me and said ” i know exactly what you mean’ as he landed a kiss on my forehead. My kiwiest new year has so much room to grow dont you think? So stoked for whats to cone. Clinking my cuppa to you. Cheers ♡

Precision in Prayer


Sold my car today for just the price I prayed for~ just the exact amount I needed. No more no less. God is definitely the God of precision. Lesson learned: 

1)Be specific in prayer. So when they’re answered, you know when it comes to pass 🙂

2) Be ready and expectant. I already had the paperwork done and sorted. All i needed to do was have the buyers sign them off for car rego transfers.

3) Have great faith. That to me is the most important. The size of your faith tantamounts to the size of your God. 🙂

Because Of You

If ever you wondered
If you touched my soul, yes you do
Since I met you I’m not the same
You bring life to everything I do

Just the way you say hello
With one touch I can’t let go
Never thought I’d fall in love
With you, yeah yeah

Because of you, my life has changed
Thank you for the love and joy you bring
Because of you, I feel no shame
I’ll tell the world it’s because of you

Sometimes I get lonely
And all I gotta do is think of you
You captured something inside of me
You make all of my dreams come true

It’s not enough that you love me for me, yeah
You reached inside and touched me eternally
I love you best explains how I feel
For you, yeah-e-yeah

Because of you, my life has changed
Thank you for the love and joy you bring
Because of you, I feel no shame
I’ll tell the world it’s because of you

The magic in your eyes, true love I can’t deny
When you hold me I just lose control
I want you to know that I’m never letting go
You mean so much to me I want the world to see
It’s because of you

Because of you, my life has changed
Thank you for the love and the joy you bring
Because of you, I feel no shame
I’ll tell the world it’s because of you

My life has changed
Thank you for the love and the joy you bring
Because of you, I feel no shame
I’ll tell the world it’s because of you
Because of you

Into The Deep

I reckon you don’t need to know someone for too long to know the deepest darkest thing lurking in the corners of their heart. When a person chooses to open up and pour out their heart and and soul to you, then that’s the time you get to know. It’s the scariest thing. Scarier than death itself I reckon because you get to live another day knowing that your at the mercy of someone else to keep. But you know, it may be the scariest thing but its also the most freeing. Knowing that a person can nurture and keep your heart and soul safe is just amazing. What a privilege! God’s too good. I’m glad that after all the wait, he has found his way to me. Love you, babe. Of all the songs you’ve played for me and danced me to, this would be by far the one that stuck to me.
 

Everybody gets high sometimes, you know
What else can we do when we’re feeling low?
So take a deep breath and let it go
You shouldn’t be drowning on your own

And if you feel you’re sinking,
I will jump right over into cold, cold water for you
And although time may take us into different places
I will still be patient with you
And I hope you know

I won’t let go
I’ll be your lifeline tonight
I won’t let go
I’ll be your lifeline tonight

Cause we all get lost sometimes, you know?
It’s how we learn and how we grow
And I wanna lay with you ’til I’m old
You shouldn’t be fighting on your own

And if you feel you’re sinking,
I will jump right over into cold, cold water for you
And although time may take us into different places
I will still be patient with you
And I hope you know

I won’t let go
I’ll be your lifeline tonight
I won’t let go
I’ll be your lifeline tonight

Come on, come on
Save me from my rocking boat
I just want to stay afloat
I’m all alone
And I hope, I hope
Someone’s gonna take me home
Somewhere I can rest my soul
I need to know
