Photo Journal #57: July 5, 2014 (Saturday)/Transformers, God’s presence, Wisdom, Letter to Inmate, Anger Control Success #1

In my last post, I told you that reading the letter from Greg was a little stressful but I now realized, he decided to ask as many questions as possible because I am the only person he can talk to while in my case, to be honest, he is just one of my work-of-mercy beneficiaries…in other words, a charity case. That’s when I started asking myself the reason why I wrote him a letter in the first place. Certainly, it’s not just to tick off another item from my bucket list and if ever, unconsciously, it is the case, I should remind myself that doing this-writing him a letter- is more than that. While writing my second letter, I drawled on while answering almost all his questions that it ended up having six pages. I also sent him photos and a keychain. This day was also a brother-sister bonding time. We watched Transformers: Age of Instinction in 3D which I hate but left us with no choice because of my tight sked for the day. As usual, at 6 pm, I proceeded to the church to be the commentator for the mass. I saw one guy clocking me… Oooo. Hahahahah. These are the lessons I learned for the past week: 1. focus on what you can control 2. God is really up to something. 3. Be at the moment for when the sought after future comes, I’d look back on this day and say, “That day’s better.” 4. Loving is always better than being right. It may not be a justifiable expedient response nor a profitable act but it is, as mentioned by Maya Angelou, satisfying to the soul. So, I resolve not to retaliate just because I know I am right and it’s just for kindness is not after always being right. 5. God’s miracles are treasures, right? No debates on that and remember, the greatest treasures are not readily and easily found. Only the valient, the humble, the persistent, the faithful can find them. One has to look for them to find them. The greatest miracles, then, are those which need to be discovered…like…uhm, the wisdom
In a setback perhaps? I am truly happy, why? I finally heard God´s voice after His long silence. He never abandoned me. I felt like I am in a rut but I am wrong. I heard him speaking to my heart today, telling me that He knew I am in a safe zone that no matter where I go or what I do, I am totally safe and not diverted. It’s as if telling me to do the best that I can to better myself while I am on the preparation stage before taking off to another journey. I am not scared for I truly trust in Him. He is always with me We’re in this together. Congratulations dear self as well for not throwing tantrums and venomous words to a driver who’s obviously at fault. Wohoooooooo!!!! After this, I’ll start my coursera. Kikiki!

About kaylathetheoxenophile

Hi everyone! I’m kayla. This is my first attempt to share my thoughts through blogging. Got lots of exploring to do. Don’t even know where to start and what to say. To start the ball rolling, allow me to share with you some of the fallacies about Kayla Marie Sarte. 1. Writing is just not my line. Although most considered me as a creative writer, I doubt I have that knack. I’m direct to the point. My essays are straight. As long as I get the message across then that’s fair enough for me. 2.I’m not a walking encyclopedia, got that? How funny it is to be asked by some bunch of kiddos bout tons of stuffs I don’t know or even have heard. Worse? They expect me to answer their queries in a snap. Good thing, I can always find the usual “busy” excuse to elude their endless questions. 3. You just don’t know how pain in the ass reading is to me. I always record the days I spend reading and do my best to keep the pace. Yeah, I’m a literature major but it’s uhmm, …. Except for required readings in my literature classes in the class, I haven’t truly deal with literary works personally. Good heavens, I found John Grisham and Dean Koontz – my all time faves. (In my later posts, I’ll be sharing my thoughts bout their books.) 4. One thing I found truly bleak about me is my loved for movies. I don’t like cinematography or even crave like Glenn Ortiz to be the Steven Spielberg of this race. I just enjoy watching movies on the big screen. That’s all. So, it’s a fallacy that I like cinematography… just the movies. 5. Call me braggart, arrogant. Many think so because of the achievements I gained in the past aching yet meaningful 15 education years of my life. What they don’t know is how negative and perturbed, covered with worries, stressed I am most of the time. No matter how great the laurel I get, I always look back at the failurs I’ve been through in the past. So, that goes to mean, I don’t think highly of myself or consider my awards that much. Top 3 things about me: 1. A Theophile 2. A Xenophile 3. Just Kayla Marie B. Sarte That’s all for now. You’ll get to know more about me soon and about the project 2012 that led me to explore blogging. J One thing is certain for me though, I love who I am for I am fashioned the way I fit exactly in a large mosaic we are all in. Be happy. Live life according to God’s will. – Kayla Sarte
