Reflect: Energy

Something I read today in one of the (many) newsletters I subscribe to.

“Energy is Eternal Delight.”-William Blake (1757-1827)

Think about the energy of the sun. It provides light and heat and even solar power. It is there for us all day; we can count on it. And through the great organizational power of the universe, night falls. Day and night. Activity and silence. There is a lesson for us here.  Delight in the differences. Energy gained through silence can be joyful, fruitful, and enriching. -Lissa Coffey

Read: Essays In Love

essays in love

Here is 2/26 of my #MarathonBookClub reading list. I picked this up in an airport bookstore (again!), as I find that is usually the place where I find something that I am meant to read. This book, Essays In Love, by Alain de Botton caught my eye. I’ve read a few of his books already and I always feel like he gives great insight and anaylysis into whatever he writes about.

Linking philosophical ideas and love this time, but blended within a fictional story, makes this quite an easy read. De Botton picks up on the details, the seemingly non-important elements to romance, that are relevant in the overall picture of a relationship. Perspective shift much?

Mental note to self: Pick up more of his books for the future.

Reflect: Women Who Wow | Sarah Meier

SWhen I was back in Manila a few weeks ago, one of my favorite editors Liza Ilarde, asked me to write about one of my closest girl friends, Sarah Meier, for the “Women Who Wow” issue of Style Weekend.

I met Sarah when I was around 9 years old, and have always looked up to her growing up. Not only are we in the same agency in Manila, CalCarries, but she is also incredibly close to all my siblings as well.

Sarah is the reason why I became a host because she pulled me to co-host a radio show called “The Dollhouse.” Above is a photo I took of her when we were prepping for our morning stint at 6 am. Beautiful vibes already when the sun came up.

Read what I had to say about Sarah below…
