Word High July – Tinatangi

We often think about the people

who give us joy and love.

How often do we realize

it is the joy and love we give

we receive in return?

When we allow ourselves the grace and space

to love and nurture ourselves:

Mind, Body, Spirit

can we then allow our self-love

positive self-worth and image

to flow outward, touching others.

We reap what we sow:

You are valuable

You are unique

You are fantastic

You are loved.


Thanks Rosema and Maria 🙂

Rosema Writes:

“Much like the colors of the skies, every language is beautiful in its own way—the way they sound and how each word fits perfectly in a poem, a story, or a musical piece. And sometimes we find ourselves wishing how delightful it would be if we could learn those languages by heart and use them in our craft.

That is why Maria of Doodles and Scribbles and Rosema of A Reading Writer have invited you to join their July blog event, Word-High July. They have teamed up to give you a whole month worth of prompts and since we are both #ProudlyPinay, these 30 beautiful Filipino words below will serve as the prompt for each day of the month.

…and the rules…

“Here are the five easy steps to join Word-High July:

  2. A post can be anything. A poem, a fiction, a six-word tale, or even a photo. It’s all up to you.
  3. Linkback/create a pingback to this post. Here is a quick tutorial on how to do it.
  4. Tag your post with WordHighJuly, so your co-bloggers will be able to read/see your take on the prompt. Here’s how you create tags.
  5. Most important of all, read and comment to your blogger friends (old and new found, we’ll never know).😉

    ^You just nailed the question right on the head! It’s so true. We receive what we put out there in the world. We attract what we give, and you’ve written a lovely poem that makes us all realize just that.
