An inventory of the meaningful life.

We have different stories to tell, stories that provide wisdom about the journey of life. What more have we to give one another than our ‘truth’ about our human adventure as honestly and as openly as we know how to live life to the fullest. We read books to find out who we are. What other people, real or imaginary, do and think and feel is an essential guide to our understanding of what we ourselves are and may we become.I would like to express my warmt feelings to Miss Grace Mae C. Navarro for encouraging me to make a blog. Our time is not wasted while working because of this.
Well, I’m not a poet neither a writer ,not smart neither an intelligent,what I feel this time is really I’m craving someting for my tummy. Since it’s not yet my breaktime, I will try to challenge my mind to think of some unbreakable thoughts about myself, my inspiration as I take this journey of my life. In creating something great — whether a great time, a great piece of art, or a great adventure — you can discover yourself.
Hi I’m Maris Los Baños Aguilar aka stella_maris known as the “star of the sea”. I’m a good girl with (a lot of bad habits). What I have learnt from my parents is to be kind to one another, be a woman with respect most especially to the old ones, put GOD first in my heart, and love one another especially to my family. I live my life with a grateful heart even if my mom was not there for me. Speaking about family~~ My grandmother left us about 2 years ago (she was so damn strict but worth it), My Papa (who served as our ma/pa), I have one older brother (Roy), older sister (che-che) and my younger sister (michelle) so it means that I’m the 3rd child. And yes, I was student before and I strived hard for it. The secret was I had to set a “goal” in every step that I have plan/make and enjoy each moment.
I can say with confidence that the moment a person truly starts down the path of self-discovery, they will never turn back.Ignorance towards my true self is something I lived with for a long time. Self-discovery means many things. It means finding your purpose in life (we all have a purpose), it means digging deep into your childhood and revealing the experiences that shaped you… good and bad. It means realizing what your beliefs are and living by them. The effects of self-discovery include happiness, fulfillment, clarity and maybe even enlightenment! The journey however is not always an easy road. The journey includes fear, confusion, misunderstanding, doubt and literally re-visiting all your choices in life. I like to refer to it as spring-cleaning of the mind, your emotions and your surroundings (including the people in your life) then sometimes (trial and error)its normal to make a mistakes then try to correct it. It requires making some tough decisions and sticking to them. My journey so far has seen me cut people out of my life. I call them the “takers.” They were takers because I allowed them to be and it wasn’t until I realized that many of these relationships were one-sided — self-discovery — that I decided to cut them out. It has also seen me completely change the course of my life and start to follow my true passion and purpose (this blog). I have also started to set intentions and no longer have expectations from others — okay… this one is really hard for me and it’s a work in progress — but instead I have started to look within for answers. I’ve had several set backs along the way and I have no doubt I will have many more but, I’m not giving up…………..
