I believe each and every one of us lives our life according to a script. We grow up with a plan of how we want our life to turn out. But guess what, life doesn’t normally follow the script we’ve planned. Raise your hands, who among you felt disturbed when life didn’t turn out the way you planned it? Yup thought so. But there’s one secret to happiness in dealing with our lives. Ditch the script. Sometimes an expectation of the script playing out exactly as we wrote it in our head is a cause for great disturbance. If we want peace let’s lose our script. That’s why I love improv comedy because it taught me that life is better without a script. How do we approach it? Say yes always to what happens, trust each other, don’t overthink and just do and accept the gifts that life sends our way. No script? No problem. #mirandism

What are you worth? It’s sad that so many people seem to think they are worth so little, hence they accept being treated so badly. I think it’s a rather bad part of our Filipino culture that we tolerate being treated so shabbily. Maybe it’s because we have an inner cultural insecurity complex, we accept being treated badly. But guess what? You’re worth so much more. You deserve so much more. And as a resolution for the new year, it would be great for all of us to demand what is our worth. How do we do this? Don’t allow yourself to be treated like a doormat. Cut off abusive people from your life. Speak your mind and ask for what you need and want. Don’t compromise on your principles. We receive the love that we think we are worthy of receiving. So let’s believe that we are worth receiving great love and great worth. This Christmas give yourself the gift of not shortchanging yourself and seeing your true worth. Because when you see that worth and demand it from others, you’ll definitely receive it. Not under your Christmas tree but in your heart. #mirandism

I love airports as they signal either the start of an adventure of they welcome you home. One thing I enjoy doing is observing people as they amble around the airport. Some people are taking their sweet time. Others are walking with purpose. Others are dead asleep on the benches while others are running as if their life depends on it. Regardless of what their movement is, you can be sure that every single one of them will leave the airport sooner or later. No one calls the airport their home. We can look at our trials as like being an airport. These trials are only transitory. They are going to come and go. What we must never mistakenly believe is that trials are our permanent home. In Tagalog we have a nice phrase for a trial: May pinagdadaanan. Literally it means “Passing through.” So if “Meroon kang pinagdadaanan, daanan mo lang. Wag mong tambayan!” If you’re going through something, just go through it. Don’t hang out in it. If you’re undergoing a trial right now, be comforted that you’re just passing through. It’s not your permanent home. Once you finish your stop over, your flight will be called and you’ll board towards your next exciting destination! #mirandism
