"Ba de ya, dancing in September"

I guess everyone can agree that September was... one hell of a month! I myself had a fair share of its ups and downs these past few weeks, from my second Manila Sundance Bazaar experience to my post-ACET (emotionally unstable) phase; September really did bring it. And since this month was a crazy roller coaster ride, I think everyone deserves a pat on the back and big high five for making it through...  Down below are my September favorites, or basically the things that kept me sane this month. :-) Have a good one!

The Importance of Loving Yourself

I can't emphasize this even more. Loving yourself really is the number one step to loving others and I've only come to realize this now. Even if it's hard as hell, it sure is going to help you straighten things out in the future. Your self-love is what'll set your boundaries; if you won't be loved and appreciated by someone you love a lot, then they're probably not worth your loving at all. It's just going to suck more and more for you the longer you let it happen. So love yourself, because things could and will get destructive. You'll hate yourself because people are hating on you too. You'll lose the ability to appreciate yourself as a blessing to the world, because people think you're the biggest mistake in humanity. You'll want to get rid of yourself because people think you're trash anyway; bottom line is, loving yourself is important (thus, title) because heaven will feel like hell, and the ground will feel like lava, and the words "I love myself" will sound so unfamiliar that to you that you'll question yourself if it's normal to even feel that way or not.

So if you're feeling like the world is on your shoulders, I got your back. I gathered a bunch of songs (from albums I've recently been into) to lift your mood up a bit. And if you're having the time of your life right now, these songs can totally be your jam too. :-)

P.S. You're the protagonist in your story, not the antagonist destroying your plot.

I can't believe we're already 8 months into 2014; it seemed just like yesterday we were going on about what this year could possibly have in store for us. . . but anyway, I hope you guys have been having the best 8 months evah, and that your life so far has been as awesome as a Coldplay song (goals, goals). 

So to make up for my almost abandoning this blog, I'll be making this a 3-1 blog post: 

  • July Monthly Favorites
  • Life Update (???)
  • OPM Playlist
