Event: Be the HEROINE of your LIFE

“I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they’re right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.” – Marilyn Monroe


We all have our down moments, though I consider myself a happy gal, there were times I can’t escape loneliness and self-pity. But as you know, I am a believer of positivity! Yes, it’s one of my most used phrases “BE POSITIVE”. Being an optimist made me do things I never imagined I can. Guess what! It all lead to a BETTER ME!

Now, most of my friends know I love joining events like the one below. Since I am everyday working on how to become better, I know this is gonna be a great one. Sorry for the late invite, hoping you all can attend! Excited to hear GREAT and POWERFUL stories of women from different places.



Time to say no to the victim mentality. Time to refuse passivity. Time to stand up for yourself – because you are worth it.

Great stories happen when you choose to be the heroine of your own life; when you step out of the role of supporting character and embrace adventure, courage and hope.

Join us as we talk about heroism with Aia Arkoncel. It’s going to be a night of celebration wherein the celebrant is YOU.

Weekly Writing Challenge: Mind the Gap

How do you prefer to read, with an eReader like a Kindle or Nook, or with an old school paperback in hand?

Since I don’t have a Kindle or Nook, yes the answer is obvious, old school paperback wins. That’s for me, I just can’t finish a book though I have it on my Note 2. My eyes hurt after 2-3 hours of non-stop reading. Plus, reading a physical book has its own advantages.

1. Books fits right on hand, and turning each page is exciting.

2. Books smell good no matter what. Old or brand new, I just love it!

3. Books look amazing when aligned. I can imagine how my future library would look like *jumps up and down*

4. Books are conversation starters. Whenever I visit, National Bookstore, Powerbooks or Fully Booked, I talk to strangers and ask them “Hi, have you read that book you are holding?”, “Do you recommend I read it?”, “What type of books are you into?” and all that. It’s nice to hear stuff from another bookworm.

5. Books are old school, and that tops it. 🙂 I am one old soul.

To end this post, please let me share this, got this from Karen’s Facebook, another bookworm.
