Is there something wrong with me?

In an ideal world, we would all be self-assured and confident women.
We won’t have moments of extreme self doubt stuffed with uncertainty and distrust.

In reality, most of us can’t shake the feeling of being inadequate. Or the fear of being found out to be incompetent than what we appear to be.

I do feel this.A lot of times.

And there is actually a term for this – Impostor Syndrome.

According to Wikipedia “impostor syndrome” is a psychological phenomenon in which people are unable to internalize their accomplishments.

They feel undeserving of their success and believe themselves to be incompetent.

This is fairly common among women.Women who feel that they do not belong where they are and don’t deserve the success that they have accomplished.

The term originated from a 1978 study of Pauline Rose Clance and Suzanne Imes of 150 highly successful professional women in various fields. In this study, they found out that“Despite accolades, rank and salary, these women felt like phonies…

Love is the answer...

Our office dared to ask the ultimate question on every lovers mind this Valentines Day.

What is LOVE?



And this is my answer.

Ready, Aim, Love!

I am in love with the article by Matt Walsh titled : I Wasn't Ready for Marriage

Probably the sincerest statement about marriage I have ever come across.

If there is one advice, for the commitmentphobes out there, this is it: If there's one thing about life that I wish everyone would consider -- particularly my peers, and those younger than me -- it's that you'll never do the big things if you're waiting until you're ready to do them.

Take a risk. If you love a person, do not wait to be ready.

A lot of people have their idea of their right age to marry.Well, there is no right age.You marry when you meet the right person.Not earlier or later than that. How many of us have regrets over the things we did not do? When we have tried to put off doing something because we thought we are not ready?When we let our fear of being unsure ruin our future?

But why not take a chance with the one we love. If there is one regret I have in life, its that I have not taken the chance to a…

John Legend - All of Me

Since its pre-valentines day and people are in a lovely mood, let me share to you this one song that inspires me at the moment.

I can so spend my day with John Legend crooning:

Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections

Give your all to me
I'll give my all to you
You're my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I'm winning
Cause I give you all of me
And you give me all of you, oh

As if I need any more reminders...

My birthday is fast approaching and it is coming at me fast as a bullet train.

Let me tell you something… I am not a fan of birthdays, especially mine.

Birthdays for me are like any other day, only with the added burden of you getting older (and wiser if you are lucky).

Do you know of the song Sunrise Sunset?

Is this the little girl I carried?
Is this the little boy at play?
I don't remember growing older
When did they?

When did she get to be a beauty?
When did he grow to be so tall?
Wasn't it yesterday
When they were small?

But for adults like us, birthdays are all about getting old and the pressure to find a partner.

I always hear this one every year on my birthday:“X year old ka na, dapat ka na mag-asawa”.

I think they started telling me this, the year I turned 3.

The sad thing about my birthday is that it is a week from Valentine’s Day.And people, being the nosy ones that they are usually are, ask me a lot of questions related to this event.

The scenario would often be like this:
