Week 16: Create Sacred Place

Renting a house limits your ability to create a space called your own. Especially if you are renting with somebody. Lucky I have my own bedroom which I called my sanctuary. It is where I can be myself whether on my crazy days, moody days or happy days. It has witness my ups and downs. It is where I can be creative and unwind.

It is always part of my goal, that when I build my own house there should be a special place for me where I can create, read books and meditate. A place that I can call my own.

Week 15: Clean Up Your Closet

It's spring cleaning time! One of my goal is to get rid of the chunky jackets out from my cabinet. it's time for them to be packed and hid. Aside from that I need to clean my closet and segregate which one is needed and not. I have bunch of black dresses that I don't really wear but still in my closet. I think cleaning up the closet will give more space to new one. Or I actually don't need lots of clothes considering that I am working full time and I don't really associate outside from work and house. I know I am a "one kind of boring person".

Week 14: Keep Journal

The start of April wasn't good for me in terms of my love life. I can feel coldness in between me and my bf. He has too many excuses that lead me to doubt everything. But instead of confronting him, I started to write a journal. It's my way of expressing my thoughts because I am not the type of person who shares my woes to others. I believe talking to him and accusing something will worsen the situation, thus pouring my emotions to a notebook.

At the same time, I do Bible target reading. It was surprising, because at these times of trouble God comforted me through His words. It's amazing how the scriptures answers my daily questions and slowly heals me.

Week 13: Get Lost in A Good Book


Reading book is one way of de-stressing myself. It is something that brings me in another dimension of the world; something where I can find answers when advises from friends and families won't work; something where I can learn and grow to be a better person.

I am lucky enough that I was able to get in to BookLook Bloggers, where I mainly get my books to read in exchange of review. Over a year I learned a lot from the books I read: my spiritual life strengthen and I understood life better which makes me more mature. And I cried rivers of tears  and laughed like crazy reading from real life stories. Getting lost in a good book can be crazy but relaxing.

Recently I am reading the book "Whatever the Cost" by David and Jason Benham. It is all about how strong their faith whatever hurricanes in life they've been through. It is a book that made me decide to fully trust in Him... all I need is to surrender everything unto Him. (You can find my thoughts about the book here).
