3 am Thoughts – Thinking versus Feeling

Marilyn vos Savant, the person with the highest IQ ever measured, was once asked what the relationship is between feeling and thinking. Her response was that feeling is what you get for thinking the way you do. In other words, thought rules, not circumstance. I’ve been thinking about this statement a fair bit this week, and the more I think about it, the more powerful and empowering I find it to be. Very similar to the “glass half full” versus

Siquijor Diaries Day 3 – Residual Hauntings

I wanted to spend my last day in Siquijor by the beach. No healers, no witchcraft, no weird stuff. I booked at Blue Wave Inn. It’s a quaint resort with an awesome beach. My ex and I used to stay here frequently, and I was wary I might run into some old acquaintances.

The beach wasn’t how I remembered it to be. It used to be less crowded, and the sand, finer. There were many tourists when we arrived. Sure, the

Siquijor Diaries Day 1 – Throwing Caution To The Wind

The last time I went to Siquijor was 3 years ago, May 2015. When the chance to visit the island again presented itself, I had ambivalent feelings. So many memories were created there, mostly happy. After I broke up with my boyfriend of 7 years, the place only evoked pain, and I swore I’ll never set foot on that island again. But my feet was itching to go, and I could hear the waves beckoning me home. Yes, Siquijor was home.
