10 Ways To Harness The Power Of Positive Mornings

Some time in August and September of last year, I posted a short series of motivational tips on my Facebook page which I referred to as “The Power Of Positive Mornings”. It was very well received by my Facebook followers and friends (thanks, Guys!), so I thought I’d round up all seven posts in that series and publish it here as one blog post, along with three new additions.  That way, if you need a gentle reminder any time, you may all just go to this post and read it all...

Arra Upshaw, At Seventeen

Has it been one year already?  Really? Wow!  Time does fly so fast! It seems like it was only yesterday when I published my post on my daughter Arra Upshaw’s 16th birthday.  Now, I’m writing about her 17th. Oh boy! I know it took me almost three months to share this with y’all and I once again apologize for the delay, but y’all had been recently made aware of the challenges I’m facing regarding blogging backlog.  I’m ‘slowly but...

Weekend Getaway: The Farm At San Benito (Part 1)

How did you guys spend the long weekend last August 9-11, 2013?  Did you guys enjoy the holiday?  The Upshaw Family spent it at The Farm at San Benito in Lipa, Batangas.  We went there on Saturday, August 10th and stayed there until the 13th.  Although there were moderate rain showers all over Metro Manila that week due to then-approaching typhoon Labuyo (which eventually battered the northern part of the Philippines on Monday), that day (Saturday), the weather was friendly...

Weekend Reflections: Remembering My Kyle

Today is my firstborn’s birthday… my son, Kyle. I have nothing else to say except that this is the fifth birthday he’s had apart from us, his family… without me by his side to kiss him, to embrace him, to watch him blow his candles, watch him make his wish, take pictures, make memories…  It’s been years but the pain is just as intense as the day he left.  I still find it very difficult to talk about him.  For those of you who have no idea what...
