No I am not iron-deficient. Yes I just had a full day of assignments. Yes those eyes are tired. Yes I didn’t do well in some tasks. No I am not disappointed. But, yes I am grateful if I can still see things and people that makes me smile. Sometimes you need to lower your expectations and stop being so hard on yourself to really enjoy living. Life doesn’t need to be a constant bombardment of amusement. There is always a ditch, a hike, a trip, a cliff…but strong people don’t let themselves be carried away with life’s rollercoasters. Strong doesn’t mean you must be near perfect all the time -  strong means you know who you are, what your priorities are (what truly matters) but most of all, knowing who you can lean on. When life throws you down a cliff, know what lies underneath. As the cliché says half-full is always better than half-empty, always believe there is something  greater beyond your falls or your mistakes. Be resilient. Pull through life like a warrior at heart 💗😊📖

We can never truly count our blessings but it’s always a good practice to remind ourselves of Jesus’s goodness 😇🙏 📖 🍀 #florals #latergram #thelonehydrangea #saturday #spring  (at the lone Hydrangea)

Family photo day at my beloved #Bethany for #Fathersday last #Sunday 😙👪📷👼 So glad to have such strong and good-looking parents haha~ People say that I’m an exact duplicate of my father when I was younger and tomboy. Now I still feel pretty glad. He’s still one fine gold in our family, upright, generous, and hard-working. But what I love the most about him is how he always thinks way ahead any of us into the future, and possessing the eyes likened to an eagle, is willing to take on the burden of the family, sacrificing all things to make my sisters, mum and I all happy and smiling.  

Ps. And these two are still so cute together 😍 🙆  Happy Papa day papa! (Much thanks to Ko Robert for the photos. Awesome lighting and perfect composition as always) 😇 👳 #familyphoto #spring #missingmysisters (at Bethany International Church)

It was a run-down backyard, messy, cob-webbed and all but you can always find the beauty of life in the smallest things…even weeds.  It’s all about #perspective. Great success stories all start when people deviate from seeing the ordinary and finding the hidden diamond beneath the norm 😊🍀📖 #garden #mothernature #instacollafe #Saturday #morning #errandsday
