1 .  The desire to write is not enough. We have to actually write.

I’ve been wanting to write a book since my early twenties when I only have two kids around. It took me 20 years and a son before I was able to publish my first book.

My answers to mama.

My mama would ask me on most mornings when she’s struggling to write, how to write. Most days, na pe pressure ako, (I am pressure)for I do not have answers. Today, if it would save her, I’ll try…

Even though muscular dystrophy attempts to lay claim to my life, I have found a few ways to come out from the shadow of my disease.  One of my pleasures (and therapies) is painting.  This creative form affords me the freedom to live beyond the limits of my physical world and to express feelings that expand beyond the limits that words impose.  The more I paint, the more I feel compelled to paint.  It is addictive and healthy.   As I work to bring an oil painting to completion, I am restoring little pieces of me.

Yesterday was a hard day. My client needed a document I have to dig through old files. While doing my search I came across some receipts from investments I lost because of negligence. I felt so sad and guilty thinking that I could have made it better if I do things differently.  I cannot help but cry and feel sorry for myself for all the losses until the memories go back to losing my son. I regretted not being more loving and more forgiving when he was still around and so on until my heart was heavy and my eyes weary.

I have a newly spry and happy go lucky 14-year-old daughter. She is in full-blown teenager mode and I find myself in the thick of this obscure awkward phase of our relationship. Parenting along side of the teenage GIRL is an odd slippery slope and sometimes a really fun precious place to be.

Disclaimer: Before I begin, if you didn’t know, last year I released my very first short film to the world (or the internet).  I had never been so nervous in my life, but I was proud of my incredibly amateurish piece of work.  In the end, it was really a learning experience of how not to make a short film, but all of that will be covered in the following blog entries.  If you haven’t seen it, please watch it before reading any of the material.

I was really struggling to write the past few days. It was hard to embrace the commitment to create at least once a week to give it away. This is something familiar because I made a lot of commitment to myself many times in the past.

“Life is like a river that’s constantly moving. It’s what we do with the River when it’s moving that counts.”

What does that even mean? Your life is a River. Whether we make a difference in our lives or not, our lives are not stopping and waiting for our choices. It keeps moving. They key to a moving river is making sure you have resources to ride the waves. If you do not have the resources, how do you get them? Ask for them. You can work to earn them.

Identity Crisis

I was 28 when I realized I was having an identity crisis, with four kids around. I thought it was too late. Although during teenage life I had periods of wondering who I am uncertain if I answered that question. I realized the crisis of knowing who we are is not confined only to a particular stage but on various points throughout life.

When I lost my son three years ago, the excruciating agony shooting through my body was the worst I’ve ever known.  It was hurting like hell. No amount of human power could ease the unbearable pain I had gone through. I almost lost all the capability to feel and to think. The writing was the only task I can manage that does not require anything I can’t. I’ve known it since young. Writing when life was difficult had been my way of life and an automatic thing for me.
