Happy Easter 🥚

Family gathering, Easter egg hunting, church activities starting from Ash Wednesday that lead to this day.

Hey, Happy Easter everyone! 🙂

Even though we can't do all those things above like we used to, be sure to celebrate Easter for what it should be.

Christ's resurrection. 🙏

I am not a very religious person.

Even though I am a Catholic and I observe tradition, if you ask me about the Bible, etc., my knowledge is not that deep.

I am a balance of good and bad.

I used to overthink things.

I used to analyze people's thoughts and feelings, predict it and act accordingly.

I really used to work my brains off to think about everything I can think of, to gain knowledge like that of what others are learning, like I should know what they know too, etc.

In doing that, I get stressed out a lot.

In relaxing myself, letting things go the way it is, not forcing myself into things just to blend in, it became peaceful.

Before, I used to plan out everything I will do on my free time, it is like a prepared schedule, and I get frustrated when nothing goes right, nothing gets accomplished, then I will reschedule it again on the next free time and the same thing happens, and the cycle goes on.

I brought myself back to when I was younger, the "go with the flow" me.

And that felt much better.

I still do list out things I want to do, but I won't stress myself out in forcing myself to complete it in a given time.

If it can't get done, then try next time. Kiber. 🤷‍♀️

In the end, it is not my plan, but His' that we'll end up doing. 😆

What is it?

I don't know.

But I always do pray that I get to do the right thing.

I am not entirely sure if I am doing the right thing in my life, but I do hope I am on the right track.

That is a lot of "right" words. 😅

But yeah, we make mistakes here and there, that's how we learn and make ourselves better.

It is the hard way of learning, but it sure do leave a mark that you won't forget.

I don't know if I'm making sense right now and I don't even know if this post lives up to its title which is supposed to be for Easter, but as I said, my knowledge about it is not that deep.

How do we even celebrate His resurrection?

We attended the daily online mass from Maundy Thursday to Easter, listened to the Gospel and Homily, reliving His passion and resurrection, and renewed our baptism, is that it?

A lot of preachers and those who know more explain the essence of this day.

When I listen to them, I kind of get it, but after the talk, I kind of move on with my life, honestly. 😅

Instead of thinking hard about things I don't really understand, I will just choose to think and live simply.

As simple as that.

As what my teammate has told me, "Life is already complicated as it is, don't add to it."

And it helped me move on.

I don't have to know everything about the Bible.

I just have to live the good things I have learned.

It is not how much you know that will save you, it is what you do with what you know that will.
