“No I won’t go quietly into...”my pursuit of a Bella HEALTHY Life!

As I always say, “Life is a beautiful struggle”…listen to this…

🎶🎵🎶🎵🎶🎵🎶🎵🎶🎵🎶🎵

You can take the roof from over my head…But you can't take my freedom away…No, I won't go quietly into the night…And I'll sing 'til the light of day…

…this lyrics snippet is from “Yellow Rose” — a film set in Texas about the struggles of an undocumented Filipina single mother and her teenage daughter. 

The film seems to be wonderfully made with all of it’s awards and recognition...and though I can’t relate on the film’s plot, and I am not one to delve into the sensitive area of Politics and immigration debate, so this post is just about how the song lyrics strike a chord in my heart the first time I heard it when the trailer was shown at T.F.C. (The Filipino Channel)

Being a breast cancer survivor and many of life’s frailties, I somewhat felt my freedom was being taken away when I got diagnosed. Through all the dark times in my life and even with wobbling knees, “no I won’t go quietly” into pursuing living a good healthy life and “I’ll sing ‘til the light of day”...with every melodic beat of my heart. ❤️

Oldies but Goodies: NAAALALA KA by MARK CARPIO

My weekly Iron Infusion sessions are completely done and the side effects seem to be dissipating as well.  I’m not feeling that much headachy and nauseous anymore.

Next on my buffet of medical appointments is my eye Iridotomy and I’m trying to prep myself and relax by sound tripping to YouTube videos when I stumbled upon a song that I remember singing along with my eldest brother during my childhood days.  The song title is “Naaalala ka” by Rey Valera...but the singer on this video is named Mark Carpio.

I clicked play and found myself replaying the video over and over again.  Mark's rendition of the song is so soothing and wonderful.  I am now a fan. ;)
