Something Greater

Just last week I realized how almost all my crushes (with s) and ex were happy with their partners and I thank God for keeping me secured because my reaction was just joy and I am glad that they have finally found the one and glad that it’s not me. Why? It is not because I am bitter or what so but because I came to realize that God is indeed in control of the things that is happening in my life.

He is ending something for us to begin something, He is breaking our hearts and let us lose relationships for us to receive what He is about to give, He is removing everything along the way that will not help and that will hinder us to pursue and follow His good, pleasing, and perfect will.

I will not hide, my heart cried for a little while when this happened I did because my heart cannot contain how happy I am for them.

It is really hard to wait– but as my Mama said “It is harder to be with someone who is not really for us and do not be too desperate for it to come”. The world made me believe that I might be waiting for nothing, “Hey you are getting old and you are too busy with work, if you will not entertain then you might miss out or even lose the one that is for you”. I thought of this deeply and I decided to let that lie go. Ever since I surrendered my life to Christ that was one of so many things that He planted in my heart– that there is THE ONE for me. That one will come and only God knows when. I have been stubborn and searched for that along the way and jump on conclusions like maybe this one or maybe that one with a lot of compatibility and “signs” provided but it was my heart that is making it all up.

The one will come, I can’t wait any longer but by grace, I will.

I don’t know about you but I’m feeling 22
Everything will be alright, if you keep me next to you
You don’t know about me, but I bet you want to
Everything will be alright, if we just keep dancing like we’re 22, 22


Celebrated my 22nd birthday with a crazy schedule of meetings and bonding all in one day. It was as crazy as another year gone by just that fast.

Had my 1st year anniversary on my job.

Attended a fair.

Attended a Church Conference with my siblings.

Had the chance to be with and experience Operations with the  two best team of Ortigas Area.

Passed the Mentor’s Interview.

Lead my first ever store, Citadines.

Learned my limits and opportunities.

Had “somehow” more time with my family and celebrated Sundays with them.

Saw my VG growing in their workplace. (Hope to meet them soon.)

Evaluated my strengths.

Still not finish reading a book. (Slow reader probs)

Laughed during the crucial-est time of my life.

Witnessed a lot of the baristas bravely took the next step on their career.

Cried out.

Lost some loved ones and some friends.

Procrastinated. (What’s new?)

Strive to get back up again and let the show go on.

Planning and not following it.

Creatively and pushing-ly fill out my journals.

Braved the world.

And all these moments were I witnessed God’s faithfulness in my life.

All those low and high moments, the people that I met and the people that I had time to catch up on life with, the given tasks that were far for me to think of and do, the trust that was built and they gave me, all the challenges of leading people and managing a store, the struggle between sleeping and following my schedule, all the learned moments. Thank you for that one whole year. I cried out a million times to Jesus and went on my own way and get back to Him again knowing that I CANNOT REALLY DO LIFE ON MY OWN.

Looking forward to my 22nd year— for a more focused Mica, more time with the Lover of my soul, more knowledge to pass around people, share my life with my family, friends, church mates and work mates, be bold sharing the Good News, learn to stick to the most important thing on my schedule,/ time management, to be more prayerful and enhance discernment, to volunteer actively, to be more financially literate and be consistent in saving, to mature while having fun, to go beyond what I can do, to stretch out faith and patience, to genuinely love, to be organized, to invest and finish a book, be more or frequent in blogging, to develop excellence and enthusiasm, to have a side line or business while doing my job… and the list will go on and on.

I hope to see the people around me last year, this year and to gain more.

See you around!


Sharing you photos on how I celebrated the day: from 1pm of May 5- 2am of May 6.


Meeting with Ortigas District’s store leaders.


This is where I planned to celebrate my day. At The Coffee Project Shaw Branch.











Hi! 😀



Spot the post!


Ended the day with of course, singing and more food!
Thank you so much for celebrating with me! ♥




There are two words that I would love to say to my family and my friends. It is something usual something that I might utter on cue, and something innate to us humans.

What a great year 2017 is, really. It has always been a faithful year for me. God never allow His promises to return to us voided. It will always come back, and sometimes it is ten times on what we are expecting. And you are part of it.

This is for my family and friends, the people that have been with me along the way. I appreciate all the things that you are doing, may it be for me or for other people.

To all the mundane trips that we had this year, to all the problems we shared together both the solved and unresolved, to all the visit that you guys made even if I am  on duty and had little time and talk to offer, to the people who I run to when I can’t do things anymore, those people who stayed so positive and gave me encouraging words even if there are troubled and discouraged on their own, to the people who are there during my ups and downs, to the people that always made me laugh and cry and both, to the people who messaged me that I wasn’t able to reply to their “hanash” and questions immediately, to the people who shared me their food, to all the sundo and hatid, to all those people who taught me at work, and to the people who stayed patient and did not gave up on me even if I don’t deserve it. Plainly, just the people who will still be part of my 2018.

You are all very much appreciated and believe me when I say that you are part of my prayers too. These two words will be the most meaningful today because it came from the bottom of my heart and not just something that I would tell you everyday, two words to cap off my 2017: Thank you! ♥





Hola! I’ve been so busy with life, lately.

A lot of things happened during the past months –personal, professional, and spiritual.

I just wanted to update some things in life and share it with you.


Our store was awarded as store of the month. The feeling was surreal and holding the trophy and having it at our store was overwhelming,


From blue to pink. I passed the certification for the Shift Supervisor Walk Through Program and currently having my training for almost 6 months.

Moved from Galleria to Ortigas Park, it was challenging and hard for me to cope up for a days but then I learned. A lot.


Come April, I went from Ortigas Park to Ayala 30th. Transferring from a peak store to a lean store is harder than the other option. But I appreciated it since I am able to make and do things more often. Especially line checking and having more time to check my people, product, and place.


My birth month. Many wonderful things had happened this month like having my new phone after almost a year and seeing my friends after months of being busy of work. I got my new phone too!


We had an overwhelming Mystery Shopper result! I was very thankful to God for guiding me and for His grace that even if I don’t deserve things like these– He never fails to make me kilig.


Strike 2 it is, almost perfect result. I am overwhelmed with stuff that was going on and still God will do things that is equal to a “tap on the back” for telling me “job well done, my daughter”. ❤


I was able to attend the UNASHAMED Conference 2017 at MOA Arena with my sister. It was all so hype, I still look back on it and it gives me fire. I am grateful for the provision that God gave us during those days and for the favor for me to take my vacation leave from work. Also, strike 3 for great results. I am claiming consistency for me and my team.


I was able to write because.. you know? I had time and got my new laptop. An answered prayer, indeed.

How about you? How’s your life lately? Comment down below. I would love to hear yours!

Here’s to more blog post in the future. See you! ♥



2017 as of the moment


The last day of January is almost 2 days away and I am looking back since Day 1. I am writing this today because I had to, because if I will not it will be a never ending thought in my brain that will keep me hunted for days and nights. My heart just burst as I go on through the days of January. It has been a tough month for some of the people around me and I am so proud of them.Why? I have been in awe of how brave their hearts are and how strong they keep steady on the things and people that matters to them.

I have never been so thankful and proud of them since this year that I started realizing adult-ing stuff that is going on in my life. They might or might not read this post but it is okay, I’ll send them a letter anyway.

For those people who lost a love one. I am so proud of you for being so strong and for keeping on. I felt the sadness and grief like this a few times and I am assuring you that you will be fine in a little time. God is the Giver of life and He has already plan it out. He knows the what-s, where-s, when-s, who-s, and whys of your life. Trusting Him with it is the best decision ever and if you ever acknowledge Him to come and be the first in everything in your life then you have eternity waiting for you when your life here on earth has come to end.

For the people who are feeling so stuck with the job that they are in, the people that they love the most that they tend to forget about themselves and their own good. I thank God for your life, you have the most selfless heart that I know. You always put other people first because you don’t want to let them feel what you have felt before-always left out with nothing but yourself. I want you to remember that this year is for you, that God is unfolding things right before your eyes and I pray that you’ll never lose a gaze on the prize, for the prize is Christ. Continue being the most excellent you and exercise your right to treat and love yourself first and others second. Hoping that you will decide for yourself sometimes and let the people you love take care of themselves because in that way they will also learn.

For those people who are feeling lost after being so on fire for God for the past year.The fire must have burnt out but never  I wanted you to know that God is always there for you. Just choose Him to be first in everyday and let yourself form a habit of having conversations with God first everyday. Remember that it always start with a decision for you to back down or keep on, choose the latter. Make yourself fall in love with your Maker and appreciate things that comes on your way. Those are maybe obstacles, struggles, or what-so. God will keep you through it. Make that heart braver and more consistent in the walk that has been prepared for you. Share Him with the people around you and in that way that fire will keep on burning until it ablaze.


January has been a tough start for us, but God will be with us from Day 1 to Day 365 of 2017.  I appreciate your brave heart! Let’s keep going. Let us always delight ourselves in Him. ♥
