When Melancholy Hits You Hard

You probably think that I’ve been neglecting this blog for quite some time but that’s not the case, or probably the entire scenario…

All of us sometimes needs space to reflect, look back and tries to clear things out. For whatever reasons, it can and helpfully get us back on track.

Since this is a blog about being melancholic, I’ll start by posting what I placed in my instagram account awhile ago. Here it goes:

I woke up with a very heavy feeling today. And yet, my mind wants to remind me that even King David encouraged himself in times of his own despair.

In 1 Samuel 30:6 the author shared “And David was greatly distressed…but David encouraged himself in the LORD his God.” Life as we know it will always have its ups and downs. We look at it differently and sometimes jokingly. But in the end, it is up to us whether we want to stay where we are or we rise above the situation, continue to pursue the things we love, leave behind the things we fear or start back to step zero.

But it all starts and ends with God.

This is a long post but believe me, I’ll be back to post more #melancholic #musings because #melancholicmode is on and #reflections would jump up here and there.

So,there it is. After trying to overcome the sad melancholic mode for about 6 months, it hit me hard on my birthday that I’ll be forever be “melancholic” and a few days after, got rebuked that when life hits you hard – I don’t need to roll down with it, I need to rise-up, believe in the good things in life, encourage myself and get my act together because I am not yet done.

Christ Is Our Light

Spending my quiet time to understand darkness and light. Here are a few thoughts:

1.) A small light can illuminate the darkest place on earth. It symbolizes hope in our desperation, a glimmer of hope makes us jump in enthusiasm that something BETTER IS IN STORE.

2.) Light can overcome the darkness but not the other way around. Christ is symbolized as the light of the world. And because He is the light, darkness will submit to his power and authority.

3.) The break of dawn symbolizes a new day to ponder, to fight for, to live and enjoy. Hope is renewed, it rejuvenates and it allows us to give our best for the day once again.

Mark today as a new day filled with hope and positivity. It may be challenging to venture out but like darkness, it will not last.

If we are to change “light” with Christ’s name on it. It simply says that “Christ shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome Him.”

Wandering Around…

I’ve been wandering around the net for days searching for good blogs coming from Dumaguete and I’d say I’m not in vain. So, for this post I’ll be sharing some blogrolls from people that I know and not know of that has good content and exposure.

To start of, I’ll share about some interesting site I’ve been going back and forth this weekend.

Blogroyalty – Cool layout and interesting topics from politics, social issues and personal experiences. This blog is from a good friend from my hometown who was just hailed one of the “Dumaguete’s Top 5 Young Achievers Under 25″. I’d say he’s gone this far with his achievement and will be taking over blogosphere in just a few spins. 😉

Memoirs on a Post-it – This one is something worth to keep track on. I’d say the author, Joselle, is an articulate and interesting blogger with a personal touch to her blog entries. Check it out for yourself if you’d not be mesmerized for her Apo experience and review. 🙂

Dumaguete City – Although I’m a bit confused if this is a blog or a pure bred website, it does contain some interesting links to a few Dumaguete blogs here. And I think, I found what PinoyBlogero was talking about. 😀

Tech Hallucinations – is a good stop if your into techno-writing and wants to know the latest about Dumaguete Technology. 🙂

These are some of the blogs I gathered for now since I only have a few minutes left before I’d doze off to sleep tonight.

Hhhm… Interesting that I was able to find some blogs coming from people from here. Hopefully, I can connect to most of them and see if a possible blog event will be doable before the year ends. 🙂

A Blog Event For Dumaguete???

What do you think?

Will such an event spark up something for the blogger community here in Dumaguete?

Hhhmmm…I think this will take much preparation but can be a very good opportunity to promote and take time to get acquainted and make friends.

It’s enticing to read about events sponsored by big companies for bloggers announced in PinoyBlogero. But since Dumaguete is small and food consumption is cheap, I guess we can manage to do it using our own pockets for the mean time. ( I sound realistic…argh…)

Now the question is… who can I coordinate with to push for this endeavor?

Anyone out there with the same ideas, please raise your hat and be heared…
