Self Confidence for All

Today, I felt the need to post something about – confidence or self esteem. Many of us had or have low self-esteem. It’s deeply rooted from painful childhood experiences, neglect, abuse, illness/debilitation, painful life events such as losing loved ones or a job, divorce, and the most common is discrimination.

As a daughter, grandchild, mother, sister and friend, my dream is to empower people most especially women and young ones and help them boost their self confidence. Yes it’s not easy, I know. I’ve seen enough death in my family, my granddad who was like a father to me died in a car accident when I was very young, sudden passing of my younger brother then my father. And to add discrimination and scrutiny on the side. The negative early events later on become contributors to Low Self Esteem.

I’m no expert but I’m talking based on experience. It’s never too late to believe, to stand up and it all starts with forgiveness. To let go of these thoughts, forgive yourself and always remember that there’s always another chance. New hope.
Think positive. Instead of saying, “I’m a loser” or “no one really likes me” why don’t you talk to yourself and be your first and only effective motivator and coach – “You can do this!”

Positivity leads to positive outcomes.

Smile, laugh and surround yourself with happy and positive people. You’ll feel better as go through the process. They say faking confidence can help, and that’s true. I’ve tried that many times, put your chin up, dress up, use accessories or wear makeup just to elevate self confidence.

When you look better, you will feel better. 

And it may take time and effort. But trust me, I’ve been there and it will all be worth it…


with much love,



Pondering through

He was on his 20’s when my younger brother passed away last February of 2016. It was so sudden that made me re-think of life and our varying purposes. Healing took awhile, getting strength from my family, from my daughter… I realized it is much difficult to write down our feelings when we are lamenting. The intensity of emotions cannot simply be put into words. Tears flow incessantly as my heart was subjected to pains of loss, confusion and sadness.

It’s the thing about writing – you either heal or hurt some more…

And so I can write again, by God’s grace, me and my family gradually began moving on.

I’m sharing these quotes about life and journey. May this be helpful to all of you, especially the ones mourning and downhearted…

To get through the hardest journey,

we need to take only one step at a time,

but we must keep on stepping..

Chinese Proverb

The life of a man is a journey;

a journey that must be traveled,

however bad the roads or accommodation.

Oliver Goldsmith

On life’s journey

faith is nourishment,

virtuous deeds are a shelter

wisdom is the light by day

and right mindfulness is the protection by night.

If a man lives a pure life,

nothing can destroy him.



I’m deeply reminded that our life’s journey is a gift,

not a given. And that we can never truly know

how long the journey will last.

All we can do is decide how it unfolds.

Sonia Choquette


The beautiful journey of today

can only begin when we learn

to let go of yesterday…

Dr. S. Maraboli
