Welcome Readers!

Welcome to the Mystic Blog of the only Mystic Nymph! I hope you have a blast reading my thoughts, and I hope you drop by again!


I'll let you in a little revelation about my favorite usernames in my virtual sites. First is about my Mikimoto Angel pen name. Mikimoto is a famous brand of pearl accessories in America. I first saw that brand in Vogue Magazine. I got mesmerized by that label, and I thought of using it. I just added Angel from my name "Angela". Thus, the formation of Mikimoto Angel.

For my other pen name Mystic Nymph, the word mystic really came from the show Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nog. I used to be so hooked to that show. I am also obsessed with mythologies, and nymphs are mythical creatures depicted as beautiful young women who are considered as guardians of objects and places in nature. Thus, the evolution of Mystic Nymph.

10 Life Lessons I've Learned

This entry is a part of the 30 Day List Challenge I've been promoting. It took me so long to finally begin the blog challenge I personally made because of some mental and other kinds of constraints. Give me a resounding booyah for that! The first task, as what the title says, is to give a list of ten important lessons about life that I've learned so far. Here they are without further ado:

"You have to care much about yourself on the way down, as you did on the way up."

No one will ever love you more in this world other than yourself. Don't depend much on others, or you'll just disappoint yourself. We should take care of ourselves first, before we give our heart to others.

"Nature so works it that everybody gets a turn at getting what they deserve in one way or another."

We shouldn't mull over what we don't have yet. It won't help us get what we want anyway. We all get our shot at something, but we just have to learn how to be patient in waiting.

"Don't let people just shit all over you. Don't ever become some man's personal toilet."

We shouldn't just let others bring us down. By that I mean we should make others feel that we are strong inside out. I've learned to do that ever since I've been involved in a big controversy w/ a Frat Sor in school.

"Disagreements don't alter a mother's love for her daughter."

My mother and I have differences, that we end up arguing most of the time. I hate it when we fight, because it feels like the world is also against me. But what I'm sure of is that my mother loves me no matter what.

"If you want your prayers answered, get up off your knees and do something about them."

There's nothing wrong about asking God what we want or what we need. What's wrong is when we only ask, but we don't work on it. Talk is cheap, so we have to take some actions as well.

"People don't fall neatly into the categories you put them in."

Nothing's perfect, as they cliche says. Even our judgments on others aren't perfect. We may say we know what kind of person someone is just by talking to them, but that's not enough to say who they really are.

"Don't allow yourself to rant about romantic problems."

It's not good for someone to just think about love problems constantly. There are other things that are more important than romance; and there are a lot more matters that are worthy of our stress and/or solutions.

"Don't dwell on what you lack."

We shouldn't make ourselves feel bad just by thinking about what we don't have or what we're not. Instead, we should comfort ourselves by nurturing our interests, and developing our strengths.

"Dress how you want to be treated."

Our outfit reveals our personality; and our outfit also provides information on how we want others to see ourselves. Whatever we choose to wear has to dignify us. We can't afford being disrespected, right?

"If you want to be ultra successful, put 10 000 hours on one thing."

We should know what we love to do and where we excel. Forgetting about our weakness will be our stepping stone towards success. Knowing and developing our gift will help us focus on our goals.

I have a lot more life lessons in  mind, but the challenge only requires ten. I don't want to bend my own rule for now. Some of those things that I shared are from books and inspirational TV shows. Credits to those inspiring people who taught me exceptional principles as well. Hit Mitch Albom and Paolo Coelho books, you will pick up a good number of great morals from the characters' experiences.

What important life lessons would you like to share, folks?
