MMI: Do the Right Thing

This week’s music inspiration is “All at Once” by The Fray.

I love a lot of songs from The Fray and this is just one of them. I never actually know what the whole song is about until today when I read the whole lyrics because ever since then, this is the line that strikes me the most.

All at Once

Back then, I was in a bad relationship. I knew I had to let go with that person but it was too hard for me. It hurt to let go but when I finally did, I ended up being happier.

In our lives, we face different situations where we find it hard to do the right thing even though we are fully aware of it. We follow our hearts more than our minds despite the pain. This doesn’t only relate with relationships, okay?

I dare you to do the right thing today. You deserve to be happy.

MMI: Don’t Forget That You are Blessed

This week’s music inspiration is This is the Stuff by Francesca Battistelli.

I first heard this song from Wow Hits 2012 and it’s one of my many faves from this compilation. This song comes to my mind everytime I’m stressed and when I experience a lot of “bad luck” in a day. I try to tell myself not to worry but sometimes I couldn’t help it.

This morning was my interview for my Adjustment of Status. I couldn’t sleep last night because I was anxious. It went well though and it was actually pretty easy. It made me realize how useless it is to worry especially when I know that God is with me.

This is the Stuff

God gives us small and big trials and we just have to trust Him. At the end of the day, you’ll realize that these trials are blessings!

MMI: Happy Heart

Happy Valentines! 🙂 This week’s music inspiration is Everybody by Ingrid Michaelson.

Ingrid is one of my favorite female artists. And this is one of my favorite songs from her. 🙂 It’s just so catchy! Plus, it also tells us some truth about love.


Life is better with pain. Well, I’m not a masochist. It’s just that, we much appreciate the good things more when we’ve experienced the bad things. We appreciate the stars when there’s darkness. Feeling the pain means that you’re not numb. If you’re in pain right now, don’t worry, something good will happen next. It’s just a cycle, I guess.

As a treat, I’m also going to share this cover of the song. This is with my bffs 😛

MMI: You’ll Get By with a Smile

This week’s music inspiration is With a Smile by Eraserheads.

Eraserheads is a 90’s Filipino Band. I love Original Pinoy Music (OPM) Rock and they are like the The Beatles of this genre. For me, anyway. 😛

They have a lot of Tagalog songs but since I have a lot of English-speaking readers, this song is what I want to share to others. It really has some nice words and music.

Feeling sad or discouraged today? Then let me highlight these words from the song.

With a Smile

Life is not perfect and there will always be bumps on the road. I’m pretty sure that whatever you’re going through right now, there’s someone out there who cares so much for you and has the same thoughts as the message of the song. So cheer up and face the day with a smile. 🙂

“Who says? Who says you’re not perfect?

Trust me. That’s the price of beauty.
Who says you’re not pretty?
Who says you’re not beautiful?
Who says?”

7. What Makes You Beautiful by One Direction

You’re turning heads when you walk through the door,
Don’t need make-up,
To cover up,
Being the way that you are is enough.”

There’s not a thing that I would change
Cause you’re amazing
Just the way you are”

What’s there inside you shines through to me”
