Things I Love Sundays: Nobody Can Steal this Peace

I can't tell you everything but I can tell you that I still get shaken. I still get information and life events that I don't completely like. However, very recently, I am proud to say that I was able to rise above it -- look beyond the bad and forge on, be a normal, responsible adult and retain my joy.

I'm not going to lie: it was painful still and I may have slinked back to some old habits because of it. But still, I guarantee you, if you're not well within your 30s yet, that at some point when you get there, you will calm and cool despite things you thought merited a crazy, emergent and hysterical action.

I don't attribute this to myself. It's a lot of prayers, a lot of meditation and listening to my favorite YouTube pastors {yep, Joel Osteen} and Wayne Dyer wisdom. It takes a lot of faith and acceptance that things will end up where they need to be.

It was a long weekend in the Philippines so naturally, I took this time to make myself sawa with being at home, chaperoning Butters with his date with Chewie, drowned myself in the loneliness and longing of Wong Kar Wai's movies. I don't think I've recovered yet, my heart still hurts from Chungking Express and In the Mood for Love.

If you need my other movie recommendations, I am no film expert but do check out my Letterboxd profile and lists. Speaking of movies, I also binge watched Netflix originals like Set It Up {aok and v. funny, just like how a rom com should be}:

New York assistants, Harper (Zoey Deutch) and Charlie (Glen Powell), are used to going above and beyond for their high-powered (and highly demanding) bosses, Kristen (Lucy Liu) and Rick (Taye Diggs). But now they're teaming up for the biggest projects of their young careers - getting their bosses to fall in love!

AND an all time favorite, Queer Eye Season 2:

I'M NOT CRYING, YOU'RE CRYING. Your best friends are back and they're doing a lady! New episodes arrive June 15 so stock up on those tissues!

Inspired by the life of Joanna Coles, chief content officer of Hearst Magazines, the pilot "The Bold Type" (formerly "Issues") reveals a glimpse into the outrageous lives and loves of those responsible for the global women's magazine Scarlet. The rising generation of Scarlet women leans on one another as they find their own voices in a sea of intimidating leaders.

This is enough to sustain me for the week! :D Happy Work Week again!
