“I know you are having a difficult time, and in deep pain. Alas! Can you lose yourself and relax? Learn to be mindful, and grateful for the positive side of everything that you are in now — you’ll realize, there are a lot more reasons to be happy.” Josh Balerite Acol
Gratitude is considered the sole most compelling emotion in life to affect happiness in any human being.
Think about this, how do you feel when you say those plain words sincerely, thank you or thanks to you to someone, to anything or anyone?
Your sulking mood instantly changes, doesn't…
“To become a good person, you have to do good deeds; but to be the BEST you can ever be to anyone, especially to your loved ones, you have to take care of yourself first and foremost in the best possible way.” — Josh Balerite Acol
Caring for yourself means handling oneself with the adequate amount of love, kindness, and respect as any human being is privileged to have.
When you adopt self-care, you allow yourself to be who you are with recognition, responsiveness, and compassion.
Though imperfect we are as a person, each of us deserves to be treated…
“So, you think you can hurt me with your anger? I think its the other way around. I tell you, all my life, I have known that defying someone to be in command over my emotions is a sign of emotional intelligence.” — Josh Balerite Acol
Anger is a healthy human emotion that can be experienced by anyone.
It is just normal to be angry especially when you are in disheartening and infuriating situations.
However, it is in how the way it is expressed, that it can be destructive or constructive.
Most of the time, it is perceived as a…
“I have understood the tough way that being too kind results in self-deprivation, desperation, and bitterness. Being myself led me to be with people who love me for what I am and inspires me to discover myself and keep on thriving.” — Josh Balerite Acol
Being kind to others is the greatest virtue and wealth you can have in this world.
Nevertheless, too much kindness can hurt you more than you’ll ever realize.
You may not know it, but you are slowly destroying yourself especially your identity as a person.
You see, there is nothing immoral with kindness, but when…
Being a writer on Medium since September 2020 has been an excellent venture for me. I got to hone my writing skills gradually while juggling between a daytime job and being a penner at night time.
I do promise myself, to level up my writing prowess this year and for the days to come. I haven’t yet realized fully the value of being consistent in writing when I got to see and collect this brief list of mine. This is very inspiring.
More so, I just discovered here my love of writing poetry being a literary performing artist during my…
I can feel
of my life
til I can
I can sense
it’s a normal
thing with life
I do realize
O how I wish I could have
truest freedom one day
liberty to do my own thing will you dream with me?
I sincerely pray I could do it
through my own chosen time
any moment of the day any time of the week
I do hope, vow, and seek
to the God of muses above
hear my earnest plea from deep within my heart
yes, the real love of penning
for its only then I could give you
my rawest self—the spunk, pith, of my soul’s quest
I am in the disarray
of complicated negative emotions
fear, anger, guilt, worry, pain —
I know they are so hard to accept
they are disgusting, stressing
easily shuns others to be blamed
if for some, they are so shameful
others seem to resist, block them all
I discovered a way to dispel and be cool
being brave enough to enter them fully
let yourself embrace, welcome, modulate
grasp to identify, feel them wholly
you will found yourself easily adapting
you will be proud you’ll see yourself healing
you’ll soon cherish, understand others’ feelings
so be the master of your…
seems merely a day ago
life is just about elves
and fairies, and mermaids
looks like quite last night or so
time is still over dragons
and princes and princesses
shows as if a wink or two
destiny is reading around Alice,
Cinderella, Beauty, and Beast
feels only a second back then forth
my soul is keeping a thought next to
wishing I would be with you
Lo and behold! it’s not really
‘‘life is not a fairy tale’’
it’s a ‘fairy tail’ come true
for I can be in sync with you,
whiff and sip the scent of my…
Joshing for joy with you
Out of the blue as I’m fond of
Spilling, squeezing — STRINGS OF SMILES,
High-spirited laughter, here, there, everywhere
Being dreamy still, aspiring to be the best
AUTHOR I can be —favor please, be with me
Loving each minute hence, in
Every edge and ends of Medium, wherefore
Revealed my real virtual fam, thus far,
Illumination, invoking inspiration
Tremendous thankfulness to ‘Doc Chief DMY’
Entire each and every one of you, as well
Accommodating me is more than enough
Certainly, I commit, I’ll be with you,
Otherwise online or offline, humbly yours —
Lingering, light-hearted, loveful, LITTERATEUR…
