Your choices, your intentions, and your actions create your destiny. Don’t let your life be one replay after the next, of endless no-wheres, repeated failures and mistakes. You can live a life of purpose and meaning by creating a life plan and setting goals sort of like a GPS. 

So, 14 more days to 2015, and this is what I’m going to do today, even if it’s for 30 minutes:

  • Take a piece of paper and write your expectations for next year (in points)
  • How I will achieve them.

Nothing hectic, I’m not going to write a thesis or make this process complicated. I’m going to make it just simple!

For some time now, I have been wandering aimlessly, shoot… been doing that for a long time! So the time has come NOW for me to PURPOSELY and INTENTIONALLY create the life I WANT TO LEAD. The life that will be AN INSPIRATION TO MANY. The life that I will live and when the time comes for me to leave this world, I would know that I am leaving this world empty!

a letter to my son

Dear Son,

before you came
life was bleak, opaque
it seemed like i couldn’t move on anymore
i wanted to die
but then i’ll touch that big round pouch and i’ll get the strength to carry on
at least for one more day.
the next day
memories, bad memories come tearing me apart
and i really, really want to give up
but then you’ll kick just at that moment
to remind me that you’re with me always.
i couldn’t wait for you to come
i was so so anxious to see you.

years have passed now
but i remember that day like it was yesterday
it was so painful
i almost gave up
but i so wanted to see you
i wanted to love you
i wanted to forget the pain, the regrets, the betrayal, the heartaches
i knew you were going to be my saviour.
with these thoughts,
i pushed with determination as i screamed out in pain
and you came out
i looked at you and i laughed and i cried and i laughed
i couldn’t stop
oh God- it was you!
you were here at last
and you were so beautiful.
our first night together, i stayed and watched you sleep
i couldn’t believe that you came out of me
that you were all mine.

from that day,
you gave my life a new meaning
i had a reason-
to live
to laugh
to dance
to live again.
you are my laughter and my joy
my today and my tomorrow
my love and my life
you are my Son, my baby boy!

now, after so many years
when you look at me and smile,
these lyrics of this song comes to my head-

“thought I’d seen everything there was to see in this world
Now I’m not so sure I’ve really seen anything at all
I thought life could show me no surprises
And then you came and showed me I was wrong
I thought I’d been everywhere
I’ve climbed a mountain so high,
sailed the sea,
crossed the sky
And still I was nowhere at all,
until that day, you came to my senses
And your smile,
it made sense out of it all
I have seen the bluest skies,
rainbows that would make you cry
I have seen miracles that moved my soul,
days that changed my life
I have seen the brightest stars
shine like diamonds in the dark
Seen all the wonders of the world,
but I’ve never seen a smile
As beautiful as yours”

Thank you for choosing me
I love you
your mama


The ‘meme’s of JOY!

In her post, If Suzie Were a Meme, Suzie81 Speaks shared this “new craze in which the subject is required to type their first name followed by the word ‘meme’ and see what appears on Google images” and I decided to join the bandwagon too!

Unfortunately, since my name “Joy” is a verb also (I think it’s a verb!), there wasn’t so much except for somethings on Joy Division (don’t know what that is) and this Nurse Joy…mmmm…I couldn’t share some of those meme on Nurse Joy…you don’t want to know… not good, not good and don’t you dare Google it!

Well, this is the very few I found!


Ermm… I don’t remember doing that!



I think this is Nurse Joy!



I was just complaining about my weight today! the zipper refused to zip but I’m certainly not pregnant, just adding a ‘lil’ weight!
