Life or Something like it


Life must go on, but i don't feel like it should be now.
Last night i braved watching the news. It broke me more than i thought something this huge can ever put my heart to great sorrow. I know we all are. We're all mourning. And as each and everyone mourns differently i want to do my part. Am saying goodbye for a while. You all know what my blog is all about. I can't blog about clothes and what am wearing when thousands of Filipinos has nothing to wear. It's just not right.

Give me days or weeks or a month. I will be back. It doesn't feel enough just to give, giving isn't enough till some part of you hurts and am desperately wanting to give more than what am capable of. Honestly and shamefully on my part, i have never sacrificed anything in great lengths to help people i don't know. I think it's time to step out of my comfort zone.

Ill miss blogging. Ill miss you. But ill see you again.


Do me a favor and kiss and hug and smell the people you love so dearly. We can't be certain of what tomorrow is. Life is a bubble.

Hi Denise,

I completely understand why you're taking a break & I wasn't sure in the first place if I should feature your interview this week.

Please take care, I'm thinking of you and your country, it's truly devastating to watch the news.

Take care
<3 Christine

Petitbobun said...

Hi Denise,

I totally understand your feelings and your decision to take a break...

That's awful what happened in Indonesia. Just unbearable to see people in the street. They lost everything : relatives, friends, house...

That's a good thing to raise public awareness about this tragedy...

Hope I can read you again some day...

Ela said...

Denise, I'm praying for you as well. I've got family in Manila who were affected, some who have lost everything.
We're praying you'll be safe and this won't happen again.

karl kaufman said...

Every time I watch the news I wish I'm watching some apocalyptic indie film where none of the depressing things I'm seeing are real, where people are just actors who are safe and sound and comfortable as I type this. But it's not fiction, and that's really depressing.

today, as always on Saturday and Sunday, i was at the cementary/charchyard to visit my brother, he has gone 1 year ago, but there are still moments in my life, when i don't belive it, it's like another story of someone else. I was thinking about our lifes, what we live for? why the death may come so suddenly. is there any god?
i am very sorry of this tragedy in your country and hope for home and good life for all these harmed people

watching the waves
