“There is a life-force within your soul, seek that life. There is a gem in the mountain of your body, seek that mine. O Traveler, if you are in search of that, don’t look outside, look inside yourself and seek that.” –Rumi
Hi! my name is Mhillie Ann Delos Santos and my nick name is Mia. My first name came from my parents name which is Mila and William. Basically, they combined their name together and form Mhillie.
When I was in high school and in college, I was so shy talking to people. I was confused by the way I act and thinks that I am different from them. I ask questions inside me, why I am sensitive, why I am what I am. That moment, I realize I still don’t know who I am and my thinking of myself “I was different”. A few years ago, everything was making sense to me when I got to discover and know myself more.
Many people, my friends, and my family don’t know that I have a phobia, which called “Anthropophobia”. I didn’t know what it calls that time. I was trying to find what’s that name for it. Until one day, I found the answer to this deepest fear I had “fear for people” Finally, I found that there’s a name for it.
Living with this fear made my life upside down. My life was a mess before. I don’t know who I am, what’s my purpose. I am not clear with the path I am heading. It’s scary and there’s was a rough road along the way but as along I am going to the path where I am supposed to go, I learned to accept myself in the process. I forgive myself, let go of myself, and finally love myself. I discover my true self along my journey and continuing discovering me…
I am Mia. I am a writer, a songwriter, a craft maker sometimes, an enthusiast photographer, a nomadic traveler, and future author. I am the daughter of God. I am not my skin, I am not the body, I am the God within…
I want to tell you a story that changed my life and that’s why I started doing this blogsite. I am a solid procrastinator (this procrastinating I have was affecting me negatively before), I procrastinate most of the time. Every day, I tried my best to stop it, but it never stops it always returning back. I remember that moment when I was crying and decided to make a change and not do it. It’s hard to let go of it since it became a routine to my everyday life. But I made a decision everyday to be responsible on my actions and focus on what’s important at the moment. Its’ just happened that everything bounces back that the universe is already telling me all the answer that I need at the moment is already with me.
And then I will quote a line from Rumi, “What you seek is seeking you.”
And my favorite author Liz Gilbert quoted as well from a ted talk saying, “Your curiosity will lead you to your passion.”, which reminds me when I was searching for my passion and trying to follow my passion…Searching for your passion is good so that you will know what you are good at and what you are meant to be. You keep looking and looking for your passion and telling yourself over and over again that I will be moving forward if I follow my passion if I quit this job if I do this or do that… When I graduated in college, I don’t know what to do, my curiosity and experienced lead me to my passion. What is missing? ACTION, I really push myself so hard to do it because I am not good of it. Sometimes, you already know your passion, you already have it in you. Eveything will fall into place when you are clear with what you want. At the moment, you just have to do what you have to do, let your passion follow you…you are the boss.
Fellow friends. This site was created not for me but for all of us. Though I will post some of my travels, crafts, songs, poems, and writings. This site was created to inspire people, to discover, to love, and to accept ourselves in the process… It’s not all about me after all, it’s all about Us.
This site was also created to inspire people all over the globe, informed ideas, share experiences, and discover the beautiful places and nature we have. Though I run this site. This is a product of all the things we would want to discover along our journey.
Here’s a poem from Rumi
Theirs is a candle in your heart, ready to be kindled.
There is a void in your soul, ready to be filled.
You feel it, don’t you?
You feel the separation from the Beloved.
Invite Him to fill you up,
Embrace the fire.
Remind those who tell you otherwise that Love
comes to you of its own accord, and the yearning
for it cannot be learned in any school.
P.S: Keep shining, share your light, and discover your passion then follow it.
Live the life you want to live. Just do it now. You only live once. Give your best always. And let your flow comes out.
It is never too late to rewrite your life story.
