Happy Monthsary! Happy one month graduate to me. 🙂
It’s been a month since the day I’ve come up to the stage at Philippine Convention Center last April 25, 2015 to get my College diploma ‘kuno’. Woooh. Can you just please congratulate me for awhile? LOL. Well, attending commencement exercise is really one of the great event that I will never forget. Chos. Well, what I love about this event moreover than the giving of diplomas is the commencement speech or should I say the Valedictory address or whatever you called that speech. That speech is indeed, an inspiring speech. I just imagine, what if I was given the chance to stand there at the stage in front of many people? In front of those people with different status and with different perspective in life? What kind of inspirational speech would they’ll hear from me? What if, let’s just pretend that there is a raffle draw for that speech, and I imagined I won that draw lots. What would be my speech? Because I am the one who first imagined that, I, of course already prepared for that winning moment. LOL again. So here’s what I prepare… Continue reading
Just imagine. I’ll give you the scenario.
Imagine yourself standing at the entrance of a house with your partner in life (wife/husband). Regardless if you’re in a relationship or you’re still single or will still be single forever. Just imagine you’re already married, both you and your partner are too old, as in with grey hair and deep wrinkle lines that couldn’t be hidden even if you use BB cream with SPF50 (just kidding). Again, imagine right at this moment you are at your house and then suddenly a visitor came, and tell you (the husband) that your wife will be pregnant, soon… Continue reading
“You learn what you do.
If you worry a lot, then day after day you are learning how to worry even better. If you think about doing something a lot, then you are learning how to think about doing. Every moment you are happy, you are learning how to be even happier. Every time you act, you are learning how to take an action even better. What is it that you’ve been learning today?
What is it that you want to learn tomorrow?”
My mother’s name is Rebecca but everyone used to call her Vicky. Well, I’ve used to call her Mama. LOL. She’s turning 48 this coming July 1, 2015. She’s a jolly mom of tres marias, a young grandma of two and of course a loving housewife to her husband(Papa). She’s fun to be with yet emotional. Easy to laugh yet easy to cry. Easy to receive yet much more easy to give. That’s how unique she is, the one who is able to sacrifice all what she have just for her loved ones, just for us.
She’s my Buddy, my first ever Best friend! She became my best friend since grade school, my personal assistant until high school. My loyal supporter up until college. I can still remember those days that she really wake up so early just to prepare my breakfast, she would boil water so that I can take a bath with warm water, and she’s very patient to wake me up for so many times until I found myself sitting on a chair and everything’s already prepared. She still even helps me to wear my school uniform even though I’m already able to do it alone; I used to be dependent on her.
“Give me the desire to obey your laws rather than to get rich.”-Psalm 119:36
Today I woke up, got my pen, bible, journal and had spent time with the Lord – my devotion. As I meditate His word in Psalm 119, I’ve observed that whether God gave us the desire to be rich or not, we will still have the desire to be or at least I’ll still have that desire to be rich. Reality check. That’s our nature. I don’t know someone who doesn’t dream to be rich, I believe, everyone desires to have a progress in life especially in their financial status, for some reason, that’s another story to tell. Whether you like to be rich or not, I still assume you like it. But how about obeying the law of the Lord? The Lord don’t wants us to obey just because He force us to obey. God isn’t like that. He loves us that’s why He gave us the free will to choose and to do what we want. But you know what, God really wants us to be willing and to have that desire to obey Him. It’ll surely makes Him happy. Continue reading
“There’s a lot of things to complain, a lot of things to struggle, a lot of burden to carry, a lot of situations to handle and even a lot of people and relationships that need some attention.”
Before my October had started, I already told myself that I’m going to make this month awesome since it is my birth month and indeed a very special month for me. I told myself that I won’t allow anything to mess up those coming days and somehow i’m still thinking how I can really make my October awesome?
My birthday came and indeed it was one of the best birthday I ever had yet. My friends surprised me with a basket of chocolates (which I really love!) and a compilation of greetings/messages from random (I mean friends) people and what made that day special is when I celebrated it together with my family. That’s more than enough. Well, I thought that’s the beginning of my awesome days but it seems everything turns 360. Final exams are out, feasibility studies defense are coming, a lot of requirements are still to be done, sleepless nights are already part of the cycle. My mind still shouting to finish it well but it seems that my body wants to gave up already. A lot of things were being compromised, patience becoming shorter, time for my family, time for my self and even my personal time with God are being set aside. And yes i’m still on half way but I already messed up. In a twinkle of an eye, the heaven pop-up in my mind, the place where there’s no more weeping, no more suffering, no more hurt and pain, no more burden to carry. How I wish to go there right now. I can’t stop but to let my tears to fall down, I can’t take this anymore. I really need God. I need to talk to God. Continue reading
Today is a holiday, yes because it’s a national heroes day(Oh well at least herein the Philippines!). For some, this is a time for a rest, as in literally lying on their bed and count for 24 hrs. of sleep. For others, it may also be the time to bond with their family, friends and even with the strangers; and maybe there’s also type of people whom for they, today is just a normal day, it doesn’t matter and they don’t even care if it’s a holiday or not, it’s not a big deal. So what am i really trying to say?
It’s already in the evening and I just asked myself, why today is a holiday? I mean, what’s the purpose of National heroes day when it seems that those heroes are already dead and whatever celebration we held for them, they will never appreciate it anymore ’cause hello they are already dead, or else they will raise from the dead like a zombie in the movies just tell to us,”thanks for celebrating for us!” (Just kidding!)
