Later this day, my guest post for (in)courage will go live. (in)courage is a community of women with a passionate love for Christ. Women from many places and many backgrounds gather together in that beautiful, beach house-themed space to warm everyone’s heart with sincere, encouraging words.
I can’t remember how I found out about (in)courage, but I’m glad I did. No, I’m glad God led me to it. In all the times I visited the site, there’s always this incredible feeling that I’m not alone in my journey–that there’s a bunch of amazing women who share my struggles, understand my hormone-induced peculiarities, and have the same desires and dreams.
That even if they don’t know me, they know my story. They know what to say to salve my troubled and oftentimes confused heart. They know the words of my rejoicing. They know because my story is also their story.
If you’re a woman and you want to find a home for your heart, visit (in)courage. I’m thankful for my first visit. And look now, it’s my time to share.
See you at (in)courage.

My blog is already a year old, would you believe? I still can remember how I paired numerous words to create a name for the blog, how I looked for a theme that matched what I had in mind, and how I drafted the first entry. I’m super meticulous, so it took me a lot of time to accomplish these. In fact, even the trivial things made me debate with myself several times.
Oh, how time flies!
To my dear readers, thank you, thank you for sticking around. Could you keep coming back for another year? I’ve got more to share.
To those who got here via keyword searches, I hope you found what you needed to find.
And to those who just got here, thanks for dropping by. Please feel free to explore the blog. And maybe the following entries could give you a good start:
- Prayer of a single woman
- Dear Wisdom
- “3 Idiots” is no idiot
- A Self-Interview
- What I learned about living by faith not by sight
Everything started with my desire to share myself, and gladly I’d say that my purpose for the blog remains the same—to inspire, encourage, and, maybe, entertain people with my realizations, observations, and stories. Hopefully, the blog will continue to live out what it was created to do in the coming years.
Thank you, Jesus, for the inspirations! Please bless my art. All this is for your glory.

Why the change?
First, I kinda think my old theme is a little hard on the eyes. Dark is what I mean. Not that I didn’t like it. In fact, I liked its raggedy layout. It’s just that the overall feel is, what can I say, um, heavy? I want something that treats the eyes kindly and supports the feel good theme this blog aims, which brings me to my second point. This new theme evokes lightness. Plus, it’s more neat-looking and even has a tinge of my favorite color. And my third point: we’ve got to introduce some changes once in a while, lest we invite stagnation.
So that explains the shift. Don’t you think the new theme is cute? It think it is. And I’m lovin’ it.

It took me so long to finally put together another blog — this time, a personal blog. My first blog, which was originally intended to host some of my mini-essays, is still up but sadly looks abandoned. Believe me, I started that blog with a clear intention of regularly updating it. But the demands of work put my personal writing to a halt.
As you know, regularly writing mini-essays is time-consuming, so I decided to create a blog just for random thoughts, quick realizations, and interesting stories. I won’t burden you with long posts, that’s for sure. But in case I do, please bear with me. It’s very rare that I get talkative, which is why every time that happens, I let the mood flow into paper, er, computer screen.
This is exciting! I’ve never been more open than this, so sharing myself and my stories is something I look forward to. I have good hopes. And I’m hoping this blog won’t die on me.
So to you my dear readers I say, welcome aboard! Allow me to share with you my journey. And now, let’s get this started. 🙂
