When I was in grade school, I remember this advertisement in TV about a ballpen that has a good quality ink and can last a long time in writing.
A couple of years ago, prior to being married, when blogging was the most “in” thing, I started writing in a free website. The contents of my blog are mostly personal just like this one. The only difference is that back then I only wrote to share my experiences, my opinions without particular goal in mind – just to have myself heard.
Almost five years ago, I felt the nudge to write again but this time the goal was to share my experiences as to how I always get to “meet” GOD in everything I do everyday. Another three years past and I was able to subscribe to a paid website to reserve the blog name I have in mind – Passionalism.
For nearly two years the website subscription was dormant as I am having trouble how to squeeze in writing while holding a full time job and attending to my domestic roles (being a wife, a child to my parents, a sister to my siblings, an aunt, a trainor, a mentor, colleague and a friend).
Year 2020 came in and then we were hit by a global pandemic wherein majority of people undergo a lot of challenges and struggles – both personal and professional. Nearly all of us are in emotional state as we don’t know what the future would bring. I had to feed myself with GOD’s word by reading the Bible, having morning devotionals, praying at night, attending online mass, watching Pastor’s sermon on TV and a lot of things ecumenical to strengthen my spirituality.
Around this time, I felt the urge to materialize Passionalism and so by October I was able to start writing again. I was thinking that nobody would read this blog ‘coz they might find that the articles are a little bit old fashioned since I make it a point to put Bible verses on each articles that I write.
I was really surprised when I started receiving comments, as I am still holding a full time job, a lot of times, I have to delay reading and reviewing each comments. I thank GOD and all of you that you find my writing relatable. I apologized if I am not able to reply to your comments as I am still finding the perfect balance to do this passion of mine while attending to my full time job and to my domestic roles which I mentioned above.
I am still a neophyte blogger as I stopped writing for nearly half a decade. What sustains me to continue doing this passion is that I always pray to GOD to guide me as to what articles I should write and I also pray that it would always bring people back to him. Though I am still far from that, I pray that like the Kilometrico ballpen that we had during our grade school days, I will be able to write finely in the future and last a long time.
After all, my goal here is to share my experiences as to how I always get to “meet” GOD in everything I do everyday.
May GOD bless us all.
