Where I Get My Inspiration

Posted by on Mar 1, 2011 in Advocacy, Announcements, Beauty, blogging, Life, Personal | 11 comments

Today is a very wonderful day!  A very touching incident just made my day and it reminded me of why I continue to share my experiences on this blog :)

I get emails here and there from readers asking further questions about my blog posts on my travels, food blogs, fashion and beauty thing-a-majigs and many other things.  Sometimes I get feedbacks or comments from readers around the world thanking me for sharing some blog posts I have.  But that’s about it, sometimes they say thanks, sometimes not :(  all good… 😛 but anyway, today… I have never been so touched with what I read earlier.

Today, Garnier Philippines just launched their “Bright Eyes” music video featuring different ladies, mostly Garnier fans on facebook, who live different lives and different careers.  Other than us being fans of Garnier on Facebook, we have one thing in common – we are REAL ladies, and we work hard for what we want.  You can see the determination even with the making of the music video.  In my experience, shoots usually take long and often extend on late hours.  Most of us stayed late for the shoot and I know shooting videos could be tiring for everyone including the directors, the talents and the technical staff, but the result is all worth it seeing the final music video and knowing that this could help inspire some *girl power* vibe to everyone.

Watch the video here. :)

Today, Garnier officially shared the video to their fans on Facebook.  I visited the page and saw Hazel and Jonha’s sweet comments.  It’s such a big deal to me and I feel great that someway, somehow, I can make a difference.

And with this, ladies and gentlemen, I am inspired.  This is where I get my inspiration from.

I hope that with the many happy things I share, I also inspire many girls to follow their dreams because once upon a time, I am a dreamer, but then… I woke up and live it!  Just work hard to be who you want to be because there are no shortcuts in life.  Every successful people I know, actresses, businessman, athletes – they work hard to keep their dream real.  They don’t just sleep like a monkey 😛

And so, dance if you want to… work on your voice if you want to be a singer, take guitar lessons, learn how to fly a plane.  If you don’t have money to do this, work hard, save for it or apply for scholarships.  And when you finally live your dream, maintain :)

And now, I share this inspiring quote.  It’s my boyfriend’s favorite quote by Steve Jobs.

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

  1. You know, more and more people will be inspired by you in the future. Not only Jonha.. or Hazel.. or me! Main reason why I am very happy to have the opportunity to feature you as Pinay in Pink for March. Wink*

  2. by saying “REAL” ladies, are you excluding gay transexuals who want to be called ladies but society would not because legally speaking they are still considered hes??

  3. I don’t exclude. Actually, it’s for everyone. Even guys :) i’m just referring more to women because we are usually referred as the weaker sex, when in fact we ladies, or gays and transexuals can do more great things too. Actually, most of my gay friends and the gay people I know are very very talented and creative :)
