MUSIC | SUMMER FEELS OF THE 70s AND 80s

monthlyfavorites, music

Hey you,

so I’ve been currently noticing these 70s/80s vibes in most of my favorite artists’ music and I cannot thank them enough for bringing these major feels back. It might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but I’m obsessed with nostalgia at the moment. I’m imagining myself listening to this playlist while out in the open with some friends just hanging out in the warm season, not caring for anything in the world. Enjoy!

Small disclaimer: my monthly favorites will be up quite late and I’ll have it joined with my July-faves. Stay tuned.

P.S. Your parents will love this playlist.

Yours candidly,
Ezzy

PONDER | HOW WONDER WOMAN REPRESENTS PURE FEMININITY

FOR THE HEART, inspiration, personal, PONDER, sisterhood

For the people who know me, I have always had an admiration for Wonder Woman, yet over the years I have come to realise that what I saw in her and what I saw in the hype of the Third Wave Feminism, I became a little more sceptic and careful about how much I wanted to let it influence my views on womanhood. Therefore, I also had my doubts whether the movie would be any good, because firstly, it’s a DC-Movie and the last few ones were a disappointment (Sorry Ben, but Christian Bale will forever be my favorite Batman), secondly, Wonder Woman blew up the whole Feminism topic again and lastly, I wasn’t sure if the plot would be any good at all. PTL, all my assumptions proved me wrong. Read on to find out why!

COVERED | GOD, SEX AND THE PURPOSE OF LIFE

Hey you,

these past weeks have been somewhat busy and pretty tiring, therefore a short weekend getaway sounded more than appealing. Though getting out of the city was just a bonus, the actual reason of getting out of the busyness of life was Christopher West’s Theology of the Body-Talk. The event took place at a pilgrimage destination in Germany, a few kilometers away from Munich and Salzburg. Altötting, to my surprise, is a sacred place of the Black Madonna, i.e. Mama Mary, in Europe aside from the well-known places Monserrat and Lourdes.

“Altötting is a town in Bavaria, capital of the district Altötting. For 500 years it has been the scene of religious pilgrimages by Catholics in honor of Mary including a visit by Pope John Paul II in 1980 and Pope Benedict XVI in 2006.” Wikipedia

WAYS HOW TO LENT | 1-1-1 CHALLENGE

inspiration, life

Hey, you!

Lenten season has officially begun and I am pretty excited about it. This season most especially encourages us to step up in our spiritual life and I’m very curious what the Lord’s plan is for me during this season. So, I have already contemplated about what various things I could fast and since sometimes it is hard to find what to give up for Lent, let me just put this question out there:

“Is there something that I can give up to make more room for God?”

MY TWENTYSEVENTEEN #NoteToSelfs

ezzy, FOR THE HEART, life, NoteToSelf, personal, Uncategorized

Hey you,

clearly, I am writing this in my naive state because whatever I might say now, may or may not happen this year BUT we’d like to stay positive.

The year has actually started quite promising. While watching the fireworks out of my sister’s bedroom window, I felt hopeful. I think I have let go a lot of BS in the last weeks of 2016 which pretty much lead me to feeling refreshed and restarted. I have planned quite a bit for this year though I can already see the anxiety creeping up on me, therefore my mind has gone back and forth figuring out whether some of the plans are realistic or not. But since I do not want this first blog post of the year to be listing down all my hopes and dreams for 2017, I figured, in order to stay sane in the whirlwind called life, I’d rather dot down some of my #NoteToSelfs to remind myself that there are more important things, such as, building character and growth. DARUM, I’d like to share these followings with y’alls by starting off with:
