Steemit Is Shaped To Create Steemians; Let's Keep It That Way. I Did Some Recovery In Boracay. Will Be Full-Steem Again.steemCreated with Sketch.

in travel •  10 months ago
This post was posted a few hours late!

Agreed, i am doing Boracay but it was all mixed. 

A day after my mama's burial, we headed to Boracay, to do some form of recovery in the midst of nature.


I am managing to laugh and stuff but its all mixed. I even managed to generate some off-key dance but it was all mixed.



On a normal day, i am not any longer very good at generating really-happy feelings. 

The hormones for leisure aren't any longer within me.

Among other things; things no longer very much impress/interest/fascinate me after the first time. I feel like even in my imagination, i have reached these heights-of-places and upon eventually seeing or experiencing these heights in real-life, the interest isn't any longer full.

The best thing i think i end up doing within these seemingly fun/nature-laden moments, is ponder about the Creator and how glorious He is. 

On the other hand, i go through these times when i look at proceedings and think; "life in this system of things does have so-so-so much limits and i start to question, what i am doing in it". Really, one can't do so much; it's not all limitless.

Laugh too much and the tummy can burst.
Drink too much soda/wine/even champagne and soon, the doctors can go; "Kidney mishap".
Eat too much and you will not like how you'll feel from a bloated tummy/obesity/diabetes.

So just what is life and so-called enjoyment all about? Why are they caps everywhere?

There is a lot to realize when you buy out time to ponder and i tend to do loads of those, even in my play moment, especially, when i get to spend times in nature. Well, in this particular outing, i was doing some form of recovery, so it wasn't all fun. There were a ton of times where my thinking was "i wish i was spending this time and money with my mama, while she was alive. I did want to give my mama "skyscrapers". As she suffered all her life, i was willing to wait it out, till skyscraper was ready, to give her whispers of good news. I no longer wanted to appease or console her with peanuts. 

Overall, money spendable on only you, isn't so valuable afterall. "Trips" (pleasure) have caps. You have one body and one tummy (stomach).

Note: I understand fully, how Dan created bitshares, then steem, then left for EOS or Ned deciding to make steemit open-source etc

Life is very deeper things than eating & drinking and mediocre merry. 


We do tend to hype many of these emotions a bit too much, like these things are all there is and are limitless afterall. However, if life is eating and drinking and eat and drinking have caps, then is this life limitless? If your heart skips beats too much and it can cut and fail, then is this paradise? "There has got to be something more".

Boracay


Twas all mixed. 

I did the fun activities along with the thinking/pondering/wondering etc After everything, we had only one day of full-blown activities. 

The next day; today, is departure-day, thus, from "no activities" in mind, we still ended up doing two activities; one in which my heart had no choice but to cut from extreme emotions as a speed boat pulled my weak ass around, bouncing me around against thick water ripples while i held on for dear life and the other activity resolved me to some calmness as we went under sea to look for nemo.

videos to be uploaded later!!!

In the under water activity, i had my moments where i knelt down to do special prayers. I tend to want to do prayers at times like this, when i am in nature or perhaps on nature. E.g once, when i got on top of a high hill in Batangas. 


Why We Had To Rush Matters

The whole leisure-endeavor was meant to be some form of recovery, all before my sister's departure flight on Saturday. So basically, we were to leave for Boracay (from Manila) early on Wednesday (Nov 29, 2017), after my mama's burial on Tuesday (Nov 28, 2017), so we can have at least have half-a-day of activities, on Wednesday, then enjoy the whole of Thursday and even a major part of Friday but that was far from the case as the only rushed package we found, was to have us depart Manila at 3 pm Wednesday and return 9 pm on Friday (Dec 1, 2017).

On Wednesday, flights were delayed by hours and we spent another set of hours on travelling to the hotel, when we arrived Boracay. Most of Wednesday, was spent on exhaustion.


A lot learned

We tend to think "invincibility" a bit too much and set too many unnecessary protocols and in reality, eat ourselves over nothing, when in reality we are so-dust. "Oh you spammed me/Oh you misspelled my name/You forgot the "Sir-part" of my name/I am whale, you are minnow, so you can't send me a memo using 0.001, it's spam etc Hahaha so? Look at the bigger picture; in reality, you are so all-dust! 

In the real world; in the jungle; a lizard vs you; a lizard has more guts.

And if you gather all the money in the world and own it; so?

"There is a limit to life in this system and how much we can explore while in it", is most of what i re-learned in these past few days during my mum's passing away and in the few days of leisure and recovery. 

So don't think people like Ned etc know not what they are doing, when they open-source steemit, for instance. 

They simply have established that there are deeper things to life than hoarding temporary goodies etc
Your money will only ever have full essence when used on behalf of others, same applies to all your accolades, intellect and genius because you have one mouth & one body etc @surpassinggoogle

I'm so glad to see you on the road to mending. You've been on my mind a lot recently. Actually I am going to write to you in chat about something, so take a look when you have a chance.

Among other things; things no longer very much impress/interest/fascinate me after the first time. I feel like even in my imagination, i have reached these heights-of-places and upon eventually seeing or experiencing these heights in real-life, the interest isn't any longer full.

It's like you plucked that straight out of my head, we are so very kindred in this regard. But recently I have been planning a trip west to places I've not been and truly hoping that there will be new impressions/atmosphere that will rejuvenate me, as I have always loved to travel and spend time in in new places. I also plan on meeting a number of steemit friends which is the best part-- and it's given me a new sense of purpose. Along with the motivation to do certain things like getting in better shape again via exercise and diet, I've already begun to see results :)

My heart continues to be with you. Much love Terry xxoo

·

I wish you love and awesomeness. We really need to talk soon, so you can pour those things fully out. It is a tough road. You are in my prayers. With hopes and prayers, his case can be saved. I will visit you in chat soon. It's so so so tough, i wont lie. My dad's case is there. I so want to talk to him or hug him or something but he may not be allowed to travel cos of health. I still pray. Sometimes i tire out totally in a fight cos in reality, if someone suffers all their life and more critical suffering comes again out of nowhere, then what's the fight about. Many times, it doesn't make sense and some eat suffering like its daily bread

Wow. Amazing @surpassinggoogle. I an glad you are handling this well. You are just the best. I know what it fewls like to miss a parent. I lost one and i was devasted. But you are here handling it so well. I feel bad for not handling it well as i should then. I believe i can contribute to the world at large. All the things i didnt do for my dad, i will do tbem to the world, to the people in far Africa who have no hope. I am really making up my mind to do this as i am typing this. Your kind is rare. Each day you encourage me to be a betrwr person with your kind words. I still noted that statement you made when a follower of yours said that you should collect the steem dollars made fron that post you made. I saw how you gracefully responded to him without even being offensive even when you needed to be. After that i said a word of prayer for you that if it will take God anything to bless you and your work, let him do it. There is now an emotional connection between I and you. One of my aspirations in life is to meet with you. I want to see this guy that has blown my mind with his level of positivity and world changing mindset.
There was a time I couldn’t think of Dad without a tear. When I returned to work, I had to make a determined effort not to swell up when colleagues offered condolences.

But I discovered that I could still enjoy my Dad’s “company” by recalling the good times we shared. The laughs, the trips, and the DIY jobs that seemed to take forever.
Thank you once again. I am a huge fan for your witness. Pls do well to keep us updated with your @steemgigs current position on the chart so we know how far we have come. God bless yoy and have a nice journey back

·

You are rare gem for expressing this beauty. Its all tough. Nothing like the physical presence. Even my mum's liveless body fixed and healed me. I was with it for 30 minutes and it was still special. I am your fan. We will not heal fully but we will do more good all the same. For the sake of generations yet unborn, we would. Stay awesome switie.
I am not with my dad either and i want to pass all love to him but it's looking like airports won't him fly cos of his health condition. My entire life i have been in a mix. Hardly of my decision-making has been easy, evem the very simple ones in simple conversations have been complex but i was created to carry load. Jehovah help us not to breakdown in Jesus' name amen. I read this just now and it helped: https://wol.jw.org/en/wol/dt/r1/lp-e/2017/12/5

Awesome. Am overjoyed by this post. I've been waiting to sew a post like this from you after that experience, and it couldn't have me come anytime better.
I lost my dad when I was 17,and it was difficult getting over it. It took me a long time- close to 7years,and I felt like blaming God.
If I had witnessed your posts from the time of your seeking for prayers, to her death, and finally to this one, I sure would have recovered far much faster.
You don't know how many lives you are making productive again in a short while after they experienced such trails.
I pray this recovery will be permanent, and you'll grow from strength to strength.

Philippians 3:13-14

'*

' Brothers, I do not consider myself to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and reaching forward to what is ahead, I pursue as my goal the prize promised by God’s heavenly call in Christ Jesus.'

Keep moving forward Terry

Your comment is sweet like sugar. You followed the journey and drew awesomeness from it. May Jehovah help soothe our hearts and bring us to full recovery in Jesus name amen

😱😱😱 Receiving Such a compliment from you makes my heart so so merry.butterflies are filling my stomach. I even showed it to my siblings, they've heard so much about you and #untalented . A big amen to that prayer. Thank you

Wow. Dubai is really fun. Really liked that underwater pic. It still proves that immediate family is everything. I am really inspired by you. God knows that the former me wont handle this easily bcos your experience has really changed me. I have learnt great lessons from you on how to handle disappointment ans having a positive mindset towards it. Missing a parent is natural, and if you were very close, you'll need time to adjust.
Time heals the acuteness of pain, but you may continue to miss your parent. After five years, I still miss Dad very much. Hardly a week goes by that I don’t think of him, but it used to be hardly a day.
Don’t wish time away in the hope you can speed up the healing process. Recovery will happen at its own natural pace. God bless you and all your visions. In any way i can, i will suppprt you and be a part of all you do. Have a safe trip back. Life can only get better.

·

The pain will always exist. Recovery for me, is diverting this pain aright and putting it to good use in touching many lives positively. Thank you for letting yourself learn from me

·
·

Exacty and i must say its the best to do.
It's very important to return to your favorite activities or your passion. if you want to come close to feeling whole again. Whether you loved to make lives better which i know its your goal, or inspire others or eradicate poverty, don't deny yourself your favorite activities for any reason of which i know that you have a better mindset and dreams. Soon you'll see that you can find some happiness -- even if only a little bit -- in doing your favorite things and pursuing your dreams. Mum will be proud definitely. Cant wait for your return @surpassinggoogle

·
·

Thank you again

It's true that you are an inspiration to too many steemians @surpassinggoogle ....

"Oh you spammed me/Oh you misspelled my name/You forgot the "Sir-part" of my name/I am whale, you are minnow, so you can't send me a memo using 0.001, it's spam etc'

This really got me laughing.

Back to the holiday you had, you have really stunned me in the way you've handled this situation. It's not easy at all, I know cause Ive lost a parent too.
I believe mum would be so pleased in heaven right now seeing you move on. She is enjoying God's presence in heaven, and would not want to see you in grief.
She knows you miss her, but I believe she feels better knowing you are impacting lives despite the trial. Thanks so much.

And for the dance, the video was really lovely, your could not wait to get the huwaii crown of your head and put your cap.
Lovely dance step, and nice dance from your sisters too.
That underwater expedition blew my mind. I had not seen any stuff like that.
Kudos.

·

Sweet. You spotted all the details and the crown and cap part. The mindset i am applying is keep her alive by doing greater measures of good. It is not full recovery, can't ever be but this life of mine she spotted since i was young and she allowed it, even the others mamas, mama me. She is that selfless too and my dad was on a similar course. He broke down and i carry his mantle. I couldn't do much for her but she always know of my loving intentions as i always made it known. I will try to fulfill those loving intentions towards others and Jehovah grant us favor to meet one another in Paradise in Jesus' name amen

·
·

True, the intentions behind the giving or thought of giving is actually the main thing in giving.
Just as the saying goes,

' The intention behind our giving and receiving is the most important thing. When the act of giving is joyful, when it is unconditional and from the heart, then the energy behind the giving increases many times over.' - Deepak Chopra

Am sure you really wanted to spoil your mum(we all do), but her having this knowledge is(I use 'is' because she lives on) most priceless to her.

·
·
·

@surpassinggoogle.
Wow. I am so so overjoyed to see this. This is really good. I love that you.
I am encouraged by this.
When we meet real tragedy in life, we can react in two ways – either by losing hope and falling into self-destructive habits or by using the challenge to find our inner strength. Really glad you chose the happy part and i am sure we all happy for you. I saw the video and it was liked. :)

·

Yes, thank you.
Basically, we will keep her alive by touching as many lives as possible postively

·
·

Yes God bless you abundantly.
When there is a fear of loss, it signals an attachment to the item that is at risk of being lost. The fear of loss has caused many to freeze into a mode of inaction in their lives. People grow attached to the things in their lives. Things like their career, their status, their salary, their lifestyle, etc. To pursue something different would mean relinquishing all of these things they have come to associate as part of their lives. Because of this fear of loss, some people choose to put their dreams on hold —
But you have chosen a part that will affect lives and make your look down from heaven and be proud. May you touch as much lives as you envisioned. God bless you @surpassinggoogle

·
·

that's why you are so inspiring @surpassinggoogle

Yes, with all your money, you cannot use it on the other life. You are here on earth with a purpose and to be like Jesus. That is what I know, however, humans have free will that is why it is not happening..I love this post. It is giving me a life's realization.

·

Yep switie. Nice to have met with you today

·
·

Money is nothing you cannot bring it when you die. The best thing you can do while on earth is to share whatever you have and help whenever you can. I have seen all those photos of your meet-up with my friends last night Terry, nice to see you being with them and looking good. I don't have the chance being with them because am far from Manila and no one can take care of my son with special needs. I am just contented seeing you guys together. God bless you more.

·
·
·

This is very true sis!

·
·
·
·
·
·

It was a privilege to have met you finally!

i'm so happy with you bro. terry...
i'm so happy to see you guys..happy...

-life is so short..
let our self away from the stress,
let's recover our loss into happiness and love.
lets move on and be happy..
and face the new chapter of life..

as they always say's,
after the rain,
there will be a
sunshine in our life..

always think positive..
you are strong man bro.terry.. @surpassinggoogle

take care always my friend...

·

Thank you bro

Dear @surpassinggoogle, This is better than average for you, and its so decent that you take time for that event, you expected to restore, and at such a critical point in time thinking back on what you could have done that you didnt do will extremely not well.
Life has worked out with the passing of your mom, you are solid man and you did well as a child. You couldnt have improved the situation, she will grin from paradise in an agreeable place knowing you have turned out a decent man.
My all the best dependably for you and need bless your face constantly.

·

Thank you for a loveable comment

·
·

this post shows how strong you are Terry

This is the best news I've heard today. Am filled with so much joy seeing you try to get back to yourself.You chosen to leap form the ashes, unto the bright and shining pedestals of mentorship and inspiration.
This is a big relief for me, cause I was worrying for you. Am totally happy, and I know this is just the beginning of good things to come.

I really loved that picture were you held your sister(beautiful) under water. Mehn that device that enables you breathe really amazed me. How does it prevent water from entering in, and for like how long can it last?

Keep being awesome.

·

Seriously i am still trying to grasp the physics or mechanics behind that. It isnt air-tight. Water is at the neck area and i can put my hand inside, so i am still lost. It can last for as long as you want really. That was like 20 to 30 minutes. I think air just keeps the water at bay. That head gear is like 35 kg on land and like 1 to 2 kg in water. My sister felt like 1kg

Excellent post my friend, i am so glad to see that you are slowly coming back to normal and routine life and i also like your outing my friend going outside with family and spent time is a great way to release stress and anxiety and it also helps one to gain back the lost energy and freshness and such activities is absolutely important to spent healthy and happy life, i really like your under water shot you are looking super cool, strong and full of confidence, wishing you all the best for all of your future endeavors! my friend, Stay happy

·

Thank you for very much for incessant support

Wow. This is really exceptional. I am privileged to be a follower of you, not just a follower but a person that spurs me to be better. Glad you arw handling it well. God sees everything and knows everything.
Do the things you enjoy.
Do the things you enjoy.
Find Your Peace

People find comfort in different things. For some people, taking a walk helps. For others, a long, hot bath does the trick. The important thing is not WHAT you do, but that you do something for you.

There may be songs, smells, inspiring others and doing great things or images that bring comfort to you as well. For me, it's the sight of a hummingbird. This was my dad's favorite animal, and he had several items around his house with the tiny creature on them. During one of the darkest moments of my life—Dad's funeral—a hummingbird flew to the window of the church and lingered there for a minute. I have caught glimpses of hummingbirds a few times since then, and it they have brought me great peace. Silly? Maybe, but you find whatever works for you. Don't let anyone diminish those moments. I truly believe they are meant to help us.
Greater you i pray

·

Thank you for sharing your experience with love here. Touching lives helps me a lot. Like seeing this comment etc is giant. I will take heed though and try restore myself to life and health. This is something i have lost for years now, even while my mum was alive.

·
·

Beautiful really.
God cares about our spiritual life and our physical life. He created the human body, and he is pleased when we enjoy health and vigor. But in this world our bodies endure sickness, pain, decay. Sometimes we abuse our own bodies, but often our ailments occur because -- well, we don't always know why, but God has promised us healing
Jesus showed us that it is often God’s will to heal the sick.

Think of the man with the withered hand, and how Jesus restored his hand to full use (Matthew 12:9-14).

Or of the paralyzed man who, after meeting Jesus, walked away carrying his mattress (Mark 2:1-12).

Or of the man blind from birth, who obeyed Jesus’ command, washed in a pool, and came back seeing (John 9:1-7).
God the Father have the personality attributes to want to heal us, but that He also has the full divine power to actually be able to heal us – no matter how severe the sickness or illness may be. However, will He actually do it if you properly approach Him in your prayers. I am also praying for perfect healng.

·
·

Amen

Wow. God bless you abundantly for handling this in the best possible way @surpassinggoogle. You are an encouragement. I am glad to see this pics.
I tried something that worked for me during the loss of my Dad
Take care of yourself. Be a little more gentle on yourself than you usually would. Take extra time to relax, try to find constructive distractions, and shut down any self-criticism for now. Though you might have a cause to worry and be sober to care about your own well-being, it's important to get at least seven to eight hours of sleep, eat three healthy meals a day, and to get at least 30 minutes of exercise per day. It's likely that you'll be in need of energy because of your loss, and keeping your body in order will help you not feel so sluggish.
Of course, sleeping and eating well won't help you forget your parent completely. But it will make it much easier for you to go about your daily life while dealing with your loss.
Just felt like sharing a heart to heart talk on what might make you feel better because it worked for me. God bless you with more wisdom and strength to move on.

·

Every you have said here is weighty. You are experienced and this will work for me as well same as it did you. I watched the whole death process and there is loads of criticism, i do feel i did nothing and have done nothing much for her when she was alive but Jehovah is bigger than our hearts, so i won't let that eat me up. As for rest and health, i need to restore that. I have never had any of those. Relegated life and all its goodies for years, so that my next whisper in my parents ear upon seeing them next will be whispers of good news. I thnink this was the year but i only saw my mum after close to 5 years for 16 days and the entire 16 days was turmoil-some. We never got to speak of anything much, like the future etc. And on the last day, everything happened so so so fast. Stay awesome

This is so awesome.

'we went under sea to look for nemo.'

How was Sydney Australia, hope you got to find Nemo.

Am glad hearing the way you are getting over the incidence @surpassinggoogle. Better days are not just ahead, but rather better days are already here.

You have such a lovely family and sisters. I loved that dance move you gave in the video(the only dance you made), it looked kind of like 'galala'(a Nigerian dance style).

Thanks for all these. They are a big encouragement to me. Keep being awesome.

Like you always say, not just that there is sense in nonsense, but there is also joy in mourning, if only you want to find it and you look closely.

·

You just covered everything and managed to encourage me. Thank you. We will divert all the sadness aright and touch more lives positively

·
·

True true. That's the right spirit. We all have the choice to either divert the pain towards good, or to allow the devil make us spill the pains over to those around us. Its a choice we all have to make. And posts like these helps to recondition our mindsets into doing the right thing.

Like the scripture says in Romans 12 vs 21

'Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.'

And you have just shown us how to be a living example of this passage.
God bless you.

·

·

Jehovah bless us all in Jesus' name amen

Am happy Sir Terry that you are now moving on happy with yourself and with your sisters around. God is good and He will guide you through all these. God speed

Thank you for love and empathy

You are our mentor and strength. We feel your emptiness and happiness because in Steemit, We are One!

Yes, we are one. I am privileged to be there for you and others even in small ways

Yes, you have contributed a lot to everyone especially to bring out the best in Us. Am grateful to have met you here on Steemit even though we haven't met in person yet. Thanks for your contributions in any way you can to Us. God bless you more, your sisters and the Steemit community

·
·
·
·
·

I am glad to hear that you have permitted me to touch you in that aspect. Thank you for expressing gratitude. Stay awesome

·

You are one of a kind. Though you have reached the top you are a down-to-earth person. God has touch your life to lead US to this journey. Thanks again and i will be continuing to write though my time is divided with my little boy, a person with disabilities (cannot talk, walk, nor sit on his own) who I take care by myself and a half-blind mother. Thanks also for sharing your sentiments and yourself to Us. God speed Terry.

Over all the years you had so much strength to endure everything.

Now you will have much more because you need more.

Hope you seek and find your strength to achieve bigger heights on steemit and in life.

·

Thank you bro

I'm glad that you somehow had fun in your short vacation in Boracay... Everything takes time... everything is a process... Go on with your life sir Terry... <3 You've gotten yourself an angel... ^^ SMILE more... hugs


PS: I love your and your sister's dance!!!

·

Hahaha, hugs received. Dance was silly moves

·
·

It was cool, though... You should teach me how to groove when we meet someday! hihihi ^^

·
·
·

Okay sweetheart

·
·
·
·

Yay! Now, that's something to look forward to. Thank you sir Terry! ^^

This is really good for you, and its so good that you took this time off, you needed to rejuvenate, and at a time like this reminiscing on what you could have done that you didnt do will really not well.

Life has panned out without her, you are strong man and you did well as a son. You couldnt have done better, she will be smiling from heaven in a comfortable place knowing you have turned out a good man.

Enjoy, have fun its good to see you sir.


Your boy @josediccus
·

Thank you bro. I will try to be fully back in the coming days. Let's create more awesomeness

·
·

yeah let's create more awesomeness :p

·
·

So true, you have hibernated well i cant wait for this.
the untalented family have missed your abscence sir, glad to have you back

I'm happy to see the recovery. In life they'd be ups and downs. Learning to handle the downs determines the extent of your ups. You, my friend, is handling/managing the downs well. Welcome back. My regards to your family back home. Peace.

·

Thank you bro. Will resume all the talks soon

·
·

It's all good. Take all the time you need. We are holding down the fort in the meantime.

·
·
·
·

·
·

Happy to hear from you.

It's good to see you happy in the pictures, Sir. It's really hard to enjoy life if someone we love passes away. Then after drinking, recreating, talking wd friends, we hate to go home because we can just grieve. We hate to lay in bed because we can dream of him/her. But time heals. You're right that you took vacay wd these gals. Don't let yourself alone. The pain would surely come back. While that unforgettable incident in your life is fresh, be with the people you trust that'll comfort you often and let you feel you're not alone. Remember to always talk to the Lord to give u strength and always play Christian music. Always talk to your friends even online. Steemit is one of the healers of that pain.

By the way, it's my first time to see u dancing and I'm with you when you said if only your mom is alive then you'll treat her in wonderful places and let her feel the beer and skittles. But God has plans for you. It happens for a reason. Just smile Sir. The Lord is in you.

The world we lived in is temporary. We will see them again soon. Never say goodbye.

·

I don't get to dance much. Will dance victory dances soon. Jehovah's willing and us all together. Hopefully, an untalented contest would involve dance, so we can let go a bit more

·
·

yeah good to see you smiling in these pictures . God bless you ..
and when will this dance contest started because I have to participate in it . Reason is I am an awful dancer

·
·

@surpasssinggoogle, yes Sir. That is interesting. Maybe it'll be my first dance because I don't dance too but because of that contest I'll make it happen.

·
·
·

Once i start to feel more productive. the untalented series will resume again. I know this will be sooner than later

In my own opinion, life must be balance.
This is because if you focus in this particular aspect the other one will be imbalance and in the end the whole system is dysfunctional. Like what you said earlier :

Laugh too much and the tummy can burst.
Drink too much soda/wine/even champagne and soon, the doctors can go; "Kidney mishap".
Eat too much and you will not like how you'll feel from a bloated tummy/obesity/diabetes.

I believe in your case, it is good to have make time with yourself and just enjoy the show and connect to the nature. You have a nice iniative there, eventhough you came from a sad situation it is good action that you also make some happy moments with you. That is the simple example to what I believe from my first statement. I hope you understand my statements.

Your friend,
@jaderpogi

That looks awesome, and the underwaterworld, so nice to see you having fun.
The weather seems perfect as well.
Enjoy the time and take good care Terry !

·

Thank you. It's over already. I am back to work.

·
·

I hope you could realy enjoy this break, you did deserve it so much after the sad period you had. Looking forward to see many more from you. Now find the time to focus on new things. I trust you will be back stronger then ever. Have a nice weekend Terry !

·
·

glad you are back to work ..
you recovered very fast

·

Very true. Steemit is a diary of the heart. It's not only for good things, but also for things that hurt - sad stuffs.And what people fail to realize is that both the good and sad inspire and build up hope and encouragement in the lives of people.
You changed my life through #untalented, but this post has made me see you do what you Preach - you have chosen to see good in the most of seeming sadness.
You have revolutionized the way I see life through this post. . Even in seemingly negative situations, we can see some good and also choose to release good to all those around us.
God bless you and give you the opportunity to continue to bless more lives here on steemit and in life in general.

A wonderful outing you had. More and more of these will come your way in Jesus name amen.

·

You are full of sweetness lucy. I will have post up in a bit. A few minutes from now. Please read it. Stay awesome
A heartfelt amen to your prayer

When reading this post, I just got a remembrance of dad. May his soul rest in peace.
You have handled this situation, so well, and I have learnt so much from all your posts. I very followed your posts from when your mum was sick, to her death and burial, and finally to this trip to Dubai. And I have noticed something prevalent, and that is you saying

'diverting this pain aright and putting it to good use in touching many lives positively.'

That has been your motorcycle throughout this period. This has been carved in my heart that noattee what I experience, I can still produce good, cause producing good or bad is a choice.

This brings to remembrance my dad, May his soul rest in peace.I guess if I had seen this sought of post earlier, I could have handled the demise better, cause I could not really bear it then. But my joy is that much more people are seeing this, and have been given the opportunity to choose to produce good from the situation the they've found themselves.

Thanks again and God bless.

·

Sorry about your dad. These are not easy things to deal with in reality. So i won't say you haven't handled things well. I commend every tiny effort instead. Like this comment shows you still have loads of awesomeness in you. We continue in that path and we will meet them in Paradise. The Creator Jehovah is love, we can't fully grasp the depth of this His love. He is bigger than our condemning hearts.

This is beautiful Terry! I know it is difficult but it was wonderful that you could spend time with loved ones. It is definitely what your soul and their souls needed. Honor your mum by living a happy and meaningful life (you can do both I promise!).

By the way, the underwater one is the best picture... but the dancing is awesome! You've got a little rhythm there Terry.

Stay strong my friend. We are all with you.

·

Thank you very much and for spotting all the spottables too

I'm glad you were able to get some down time, Terry. This is not an easy time and nature always helps. Such a beautiful spot and nice activities. Be kind to yourself and go easy - lots of rest and sleep. You, your mom, and all who love her are in my prayers.

·

Yes, i will try to adjust. I need so much of life and health. I am still young but i live too old

@surpassinggoogle,
Wow... I am glad to hear you`re enjoying in Boracay beach. It seems your wonderful photography and video sharing. I salute you Terry because you keep mindset directly very soon. Now you're very strong man. I always remember your mama. She in in very peaceful place now. without her you get direct decision and it will be better one. Now you can provide steemgigs without any doubt coz you are now positive.
I always pray for your life from Gods and I wish your success Terry.
Be careful and strong.

Thank you for your effort in writing an awesome comment

·
·

You are welcome Terry. I want you be strong and powerful from mind. Then we can happy.

Glad to hear you and your family are slowly recovering from the demise of your mom... Nothing's wrong if you want to unwind because it will help you strengthen yourself and get back on track with life.

·

Thank you very much dear

I've always thought the same than you, that money alone doesn't give you happiness, you get happiness when you share it with your loved ones, that way you feel pleased to see their faces of happiness. It's the moments you share with them that makes you happy. And I'm happy to see you recovering and much better!

·

Yep, its not exactly about the money, its more about the human behind this money

Lovey post. I thankfully see you enjoying in Boracay and did a lot of fun activities. oh ged! I'm so happy to see this post. I missed Boracay it's been long ago didn't visit there. Send my regards to the beaches and coral reefs there :) Have a nice day, terry :)

I will say only one thing: you will understand everything when you reach the end of the road. And this understanding is worth it to live. In him - strength, depth, pleasure ... Yes, all you want! And everything else is husks. The main goal of a person is to find oneself. It is possible to units. Everyone else is too lazy or cowardly to walk this path over the abyss. But the one who went through it, receives a real life reward, not a gray existence.

·

Sweetness in the form of a comment

it is good to see you having fun on these photos @surpassinggoogle .. I know the pain is still there but as time goes by the pain will go away..

·

The pain will exist but we will divert it to good use. My pain has been 24/7 for close to 2 decades already

im glad to see your smiling face after all. God Bless

·

Thank you much

Thx, what a nice place you have been. I hope you can give the loss a nice place in your heart..this one is for you

2017-12-02 17.18.19.png

crystal cove island pic is mind blowing. Just after the death of your mum it's only you @surpassinggoogle who can do this. All the pictures are outclass. Within water picture is too good.
Today I upvoted you as witness. Stay Blessed man!

'The best thing i think i end up doing within these seemingly fun/nature-laden moments, is ponder about the Creator and how glorious He is.'

Hallelujah. Seeing you in high spirit is a big big big boost to me and to my faith. God has given you strength to handle it and move forward.
This act of yours is a big encouragement to alot of people who are experiencing similar circumstances. They sure will not blame God, but would now move on to use that circumstance as a means to spread love and not hate.

They sure will be thankful to God.

You guys dance well especially your sister. I don't really blame you, I don't dance well either. So we are on the same boat.

Thank you again for doing this, I am truly blessed by it.

·

Thank you alot

It's nice to see, my friend, that you do not lose heart in such a sad time for you and try to cope with your grief. It deserves respect and God give you strength all the way! I support you with all Terry's heart and wish balance!

I'm sorry to hear about your mom and found your post honoring her memory and impact on your world view to be beautiful and poignant. Thanks for the post. May your life be filled with amazing experiences with people you love.

·

Thank you very much

Look at the bigger picture; in reality, you are so all-dust!

that's deep brother! thanks for the reminder that we after all are going back to dust anytime at any given place.

·

@junebride, super friend. All of us should always be ready. It's just that they go to heaven first before us.

·
·

yeah sis.. we should all be prepared... we don't know what's going to happen the next minute or second...only the One Almighty knows our future!

·

Life in itself and the whole process of living is indeed deep.

Little by little, the pain will be gone. Each passing day will become wonderful as you remember your loving mother.

♡Johanna Gail♡

·

In my case, i doubt it would. I was created to carry load, so i may not have that much regular joy but i will get joy by make others have joy. It is a special kind of joy. Before my mum's death, it has been this way.

·
·

That is the spirit, just be positive terry. ♡

thanks for the post and photos

It may take some time and the loss will always leave a hole in our hearts. You're doing just fine! Thank you for being a blessing to everyone. We're all right behind you to support you in your recovery process. Much love.

·

Yep switie. Loving you too

Stay strong sire

Wow nice trip. I like it... Someday must go to this place... May god bless you...

Hello @surpassinggoogle

I find it pleasing to learn you are doing well again. By this you must have come to terms with reality that life and death are both part of nature. Thank God you are recovering in the Aftermath of that unfortunate event.

Hey... Guy all your family looking awesome! Cheers!

@eurogee for @euronation

The sea's arrow photos are really awesome. A lot of nice posts. Your trip is good

Good to see you wearing a smile after those things and pain that you have been through this past weeks.

By the way great photos you have there, I also enjoyed the dance part.

·

Thank you for enjoying the dance part. I manage a smile with hopes that it manages to inspire

It's good to see you steeming good in a better mind state now......

Indeed you are surpassing google......

But, you need to learn how to dance well.... LOL

·

Give me afrobeat and i will dance well

Am happy you're recovery fast. May God continue to heal you and your household.

·

Thank you. doubt full recovery will ever happen. My recovery is more about trying to divert sadness into valuable use by returning to productivity in touching more lives and on steemit

I really watched your video dancing until the end of it, i am happy that you are doing great by travelling with your family. Despite of all bad things happened in life, we still have time to find love and happiness in the midst of predicament. God will always bless you sir.

Condolence @surpassinggoogle it helps to unwind with nature. I found it very helpful to uplift our spirit

Thanks for sharing such a great post. Nice to see you in overcoming your misfortune. Please go ahead, nothing is permanent here, even your griefs.I am a mother, so I want to share with you that, every mother wants to see their children in the world of happiness. So please don't be upset any more, your mom will be always with you though not in physically but she can see you, so make her happy. If you remain happy she will be happy there. So Friend this is life, so try to accept everything what it grant for us. Wish you a very happy and beautiful time ahead my friend.

·

@maya dear, very nice comment, expressed your real feelings as a mother.

·
·

Yes friend he is very good son and also a very good human being. He should deserve peace and happiness in his life. Thank you so much for supporting such a great soul. May his mom rest in peace. Thanks.

·
·
·

I just upvoted for your witness. Hope you enjoyed your time in this trip. God bless and your family.

Terry, take the very best of those who have lost and bring it out into the world in their honor. It is also good for your soul to just be. I hope your Boracay journey helped you at some point. Remember, STEEMIT is one of your strengths and YOU are one of Steemit's strengths. Bless you!!!

yes, we are all dust and to dust we shall all return so there is no need for irrelevant pride. Be strong for us all brother.

We hope that you were able to find some form of piece. Everything will be fine. Have a cookie from the jar.

What a great way to do a comeback... Wish you well bro, strength and ability, ideas and knowledge to continue the good work you are doing.

BEautiful message Terry" in reality, you are so all-dust! Pak na pak!
Agree to that.

I enjoyed watching the video as well, time can heal us.
I'm sure through Steemit will help you a bit. Glad to see your dancing moves:):) will love to see more of your smile:):)

Stay strong.
xoxo

Wao! Am glad seeing you having fun @surpassinggoogle . I knew you to be a strong man. Life is filled with good and sometimes trash moment but the way we handle those trash moments prove our understanding about how to live life.Guess you had enough fun.

Good to know that you spent some time with the family and trying to recover. Praying is really helpful and powerful especially on
