Stress Free..Worry Free

0 say something

A lecturer when explaining stress management to an audience,
Raised a glass of water and asked
"How heavy is this glass of water?"
Answers called out ranged from 20g to 500g.
The lecturer replied, "The absolute weight doesn't matter.
It depends on how long you try to hold it.
If I hold it for a minute, that's not a problem.
If I hold it for an hour, I'll have an ache in my right arm.
If I hold it for a day, you'll have to call an ambulance.
In each case, it's the same weight, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes."
He continued,
"And that's the way it is with stress management.
If we carry our burdens all the time, sooner or later,
As the burden becomes increasingly heavy,
We won't be able to carry on. "
As with the glass of water,
You have to put it down for a while and rest before holding it again.
When we're refreshed, we can carry on with the burden."
So, before you return home tonight, put the burden of work down.
Don't carry it home.
You can pick it up tomorrow.
Whatever burdens you're carrying now,
Let them down for a moment if you can."
So, my friend, Put down anything that may be a burden to you right now.
Don't pick it up again until after you've rested a while.
Here are some great ways of dealing with the burdens of life:

* Accept that some days you're the pigeon,
And some days you're the statue.

* Always keep your words soft and sweet,
Just in case you have to eat them.

* Always read stuff that will make you look good
If you die in the middle of it.

* Drive carefully. It's not only cars that can be
Recalled by their maker.

* If you can't be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.

* If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again,
It was probably worth it.

* It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply be kind to others.

* Never put both feet in your mouth at the same time,
Because then you won't have a leg to stand on.

* Nobody cares if you can't dance well.
Just get up and dance.

* Since it's the early worm that gets eaten by the bird, sleep late.

* The second mouse gets the cheese.

* Birthdays are good for you.
The more you have, the longer you live.

* You may be only one person in the world,
But you may also be the world to one person.

* Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once.

* We could learn a lot from crayons... Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull. Some have weird names, and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box.

*A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.

Have an awesome day and know that someone has thought about you today...I did.

We oftentimes have questions in mind but always left unanswered. Maybe we prefer not to give our own answers for we are afraid to know the Real Answer!! Instead, we kept those things from other people, it's just between you and your inner self.

> 'naranasan mo na bang magmahal ng sobra sobra? higit sa sarili mo? halos sa kanya na umikot ang mundo mo? pero bigla mo na lang ma-rerealize na kaw lang pala ang nagmamahal ng ganun?
> 'sa lahat ng bagay sya ang priority mo? lagi mo sya sinasama sa mga plano mo? pero kahit kailan di mo naramdaman na kaw ang priority nya kahit minsan?
> 'kahit minsan ba di mo nasabi sa sarili mo na napapagod ka na magmahal? pagod ka na ayusin ang mga bagay na kahit anong gawin mo ay kailanman di na pala kayang ayusin? na baka ikaw lang talaga ang nagpipilit ayusin ang mga bagay na matagal mo na palang dapat binitiwan? pero dahil nagmamahal ka okay lang sa yo ito.
> 'kahit ano pang-unawa ang gawin mo, kahit marunong ka makipag-compromise, at ikaw ang laging nag-aadjust,ikaw pa rin ang laging mali, ang laging kontrabida, nakakarinig ka pa na napakahirap mo umunawa?
> 'kahit malungkot ka o kaya naman ay nasasaktan, nagagawa mo pang itago ito sa karamihan dahil gusto mo ipakita sa kanila na masaya ka sa buhay na pinili mo? na tila wala ka dinaramdam kung alam lang nila ang totoo mong nararamdaman?
> 'naramdaman mo na ba kung sino pa ang taong akala mo ang magbibigay ng saya at importansya sa iyong buhay ay sya pa ang nagdudulot ng sakit at kalungkutan sa iyo?
> 'na akala mo importante ka sa kanyang buhay, akala mo nag-aalala sya sayo, iniisip nya kung ano ang nararamdaman mo, na mahalaga ka sa kanya? pero mali pala ang lahat ng akala mo dahil sa bandang huli ikaw lang pala talaga mag-isa!
> 'minsan ba naitanong mo sa iyong sarili "pano kung di sya ang pinili mo, magiging masaya ka kaya?" o "tama kaya ang desisyon mo na ibigay ang buong buhay mo sa kanya?"

Happiness is a Voyage

0 say something

'this article was sent through email by my dear friend Tinah and i want to share this to you..
Be happy everyone!!!

We convince ourselves that life will be better once we are married, have a baby, then another.

Then we get frustrated because our children are not old enough, and that all will be well when they are older.

Then we are frustrated because they reach adolescence and we must deal with them. Surely we'll be happier when they grow out of the teen years.

We tell ourselves our life will be better when our spouse gets his/her act together, when we have a nicer car,when we can take a vacation, when we finally retire.

The truth is that there is no better time to be happy than right now. If not, then when?
Your life will always be full of challenges . It is better to admit as much and to decide to be
happy in spite of it all.
For the longest time, it seemed that life was about to start. Real life.

But there was always some obstacle along the way, an ordeal to get through, some work to be finished, some time to be given, a bill to be paid. Then life would start.
I finally came to understand that those obstacles were life.
That point of view helped me see that there isn't any road to happiness.

Happiness is the road.
So, enjoy every moment.

Stop waiting for school to end, for a return to school, to lose ten pounds, to gain ten pounds, for work to begin,to get married, for Friday evening, for Sunday morning, waiting for a new car, for your mortgage to be paid off, for spring, for summer, for fall, for winter, for the first or the fifteenth of the month, for your song to be played on the radio, to die, to be reborn..before deciding to be happy.

Happiness is a voyage, not a destination.
There is no better time to be happy than...


Live and enjoy the moment.

So Sad..

0 say something

Hay!! I miss my hubby so much!!! He was so busy working for the past two weeks for his new store (Pizza Hut) that will be open in Enchanted Kingdom. We never had time together. He never even asked me "if i'm still okay" or "how's my day". He never reply on my text messages. We never had a chance to see each other at home.Late na kasi sya umuwi. Even my kids were asking about their daddy. So sad, but as a wife, i know i need to understand his work. That's the best thing i could do to support him. He needed it badly.

A few days from now will be Dana's recognition day in school. I just hope he could find time for her daughter's special day. Or else, super mommy always on the rescue!!!!

Wanted Perfect Yaya

0 say something

My yaya will be leaving us soon!!! 2 weeks from now! OMG!!! This means extra job for me, it does not mean that taking care of my kids will mean burden for me, what i mean is that i need to do housechores all by myself. Need to rush home after office to cook dinner, clean house after a day's work,help Dana with schoolwork..everything!! She will be leaving because of some personal reasons which i can't share with you.

It was last week, i think it's friday when she ask permission from me because she wants to get married. "It's ok", i said. But she will be leaving on May 23. That would be 2 months from now, it's long enough to find someone who could replace her by then..

But suddenly just this morning around 9am, i had received a text message from her saying "ate, sorry po, pero mapapaaga po ang alis ko papunta Negros sa April 6 na po"..Grabe!!! Waaahhhh!!!! (that's my reaction!) I can't believe it, it's barely 2 weeks from now!!!!

Immediately i relayed this shocking news to my hubby and all he can say was "Ganun!"

I called my mom and she never expected the same thing. She just said, "we need to get another yaya asap"..

Now, as i'm writing this down, i really don't have plans how to get a good yaya just like Flor (name of my yaya). It really frustrates me for losing her because she really adores my kids (i have two kids Dana 9 & Vince 4) so much. And i feel secured having her around.

I really don't know what to do. Help me, guys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :(

All about Men

0 say something

wrote this about

If a man wants you, nothing can keep him away.
If he doesn't want you, nothing can make him stay.

Stop making excuses for a man and his behavior.

Allow your intuition (or spirit) to save you from heartache.

Stop trying to change yourself for a relationship that's not meant to be.

Slower is better. Never live your life for a man before you find what makes you truly happy.

If a relationship ends because the man was not treating you as you deserve then heck no, you can't 'be friends'.

A friend wouldn't mistreat a friend. Don't settle.
If you feel like he is stringing you along, then he probably is.

Don't stay because you think 'it will get better.'

You'll be mad at yourself a year later for staying when things are not better.
The only person you can control in a relationship is you.
Avoid men who've got a bunch of children by a bunch of different women.
He didn't marry them when he got them pregnant, why would he treat you any differently?
Always have your own set of friends separate from his.

Maintain boundaries in how a guy treats you.

If something bothers you, speak up.

Never let a man know everything. He will use it against you later.
You cannot change a man's behavior.

Change comes from within.

Don't EVER make him feel he is more important than you are...even if he has more education or in a better job.

Do not make him into a quasi-god. He is a man, nothing more nothing less.
Never borrow someone else's man.

If he cheated with you, he'll cheat on you.

A man will only treat you the way you ALLOW him to treat you.

All men are NOT dogs.
You should not be the one doing all the bending...compromise is a two way street.
You need time to heal between relationships...there is nothing cute about baggage... Deal with your issues before pursuing a new relationship.
You should never look for someone to COMPLETE you... a relationship consists of two WHOLE individuals... look for someone complimentary...not supplementary.

Dating is fun...even if he doesn't turn out to be Mr. Right.
Make him miss you sometimes... when a man always know where you are, and you're always readily available to him - he takes it for granted.

Never move into his mother's house.

Never co-sign for a man.
Don't fully commit to a man who doesn't give you everything that you need.
Keep him in your radar but get to know others.

Share this with other women and men (just so they know)...
You'll make someone smile, another rethink her choices, and another woman prepare.

All about L O V E

0 say something
Love is the sweetest word i know. It's our fave subject when it comes to "kwentos" with friends. There are different kinds of love but sometimes it's difficult to differentiate one from the other. Sometimes we really don't know what kind of love we have, as long as we're happy. Sometimes we do pretend that we are in love or someone loves us, well in fact, it's the other way around..

I have read some quotes about love but sadly it's not translated in English...but for those who can fully understand in Tagalog.. This is funny but it's true..

1.sabi nila kung mahal mo daw ang isang tao, pakawalan mo. sabi naman ng iba kung mahal mo ang isang tao, mahalin mo ng lubos. pero di ba mas mahal mo ang isang tao kung...pasayahin mo siya sa piling ng taong mahal niya?

2.masakit sa kalooban ang lokoihn ka, ang paasahin ka, ang pagtaksilan ka, pero mas masakit sa kalooban ang...gamitin ka lang niya.

3.Kung mahal mo raw, ipaglaban mo. totoo ba yon? paano kung hindi ka niya mahal? anong ipaglalaban mo? isang pag-ibig na ikaw lang ang nakakadama? mahirap yata yon ah!!! kaya mo ba? pero pag mahal mo talaga, kakayanin mo di ba?

4.Sabi nila, kapag mahal mo, lahat ibibigay mo...lahat gagawin mo...pero paano na lang kung hilingin niya na maghiwalay kayo...ibibigay mo ba kahit mahal mo pa siya?

5.bakit kaya minsan minamahal natin yung taong bawal mahalin? nakakainis di ba? bakit sila pa? ang dami naman dyan...bakit kaya...ikaw pa?

6.minsan, kapag mahal mo, kahit magkamali, tahimik ka lang - kahit sobrang sakit na.. kailan ko kya masasabi sayo na mahal kita at sinaktan mo ako?

7.bakit pag may gusto tayo kailangan iwanan natin yun iba para lang makuha yun? pero pag nandyan na, saka mo lang malalaman.. na yung taong iniwan mo ay minsan na ring..iniwan ang lahat lahat sa buhay para lang sayo.

8.Magmahal....Marunong ako nun..Yung tipong t@nga ka na, cge pa rin..Pero sa bandang huli, itatanong mo...T@nga ba talaga ako???? O mahal lang talaga kita??

9.Masakit pag iniwan ka ng taong mahal mo...Mas masakit pag nakita mo sya na may mahal na syang iba..Pero ang sakit sakit pag nakita mo syang maligaya...maligaya sya kse wala ka na..

10."Kung hindi mo mahal ang isang tao, wag ka nang magpakita ng motibo para mahalin ka nya.

11."Huwag mong bitawan ang bagay na hindi mo kayang makitang hawak ng iba."

12."Huwag mong hawakan kung alam mong bibitawan mo lang."

13."Huwag na huwag ka hahawak kapag alam mong may hawak ka na."

14."Parang elevator lang yan eh, bakit mo pagsisiksikan ung sarili mo kung walang pwesto para sayo? Eh meron naman hagdan, ayaw mo lang pansinin."

15."Kung maghihintay ka nang lalandi sayo, walang mangyayari sa buhay mo.. Dapat lumandi ka din."

16."Pag may mahal ka at ayaw sayo, hayaan mo. Malay mo sa mga susunod na araw ayaw mo na din sa kanya, naunahan ka lang."

17."Hiwalayan na kung di ka na masaya. Walang gamot sa tanga kundi pagkukusa."

18."Pag hindi ka mahal ng mahal mo wag ka magreklamo. Kasi may mga tao rin na di mo mahal pero mahal ka.. Kaya quits lang."

19."Kung dalawa ang mahal mo, piliin mo yung pangalawa. Kasi hindi ka naman magmamahal ng iba kung mahal mo talaga yung una."

20."Hindi porke't madalas mong ka-chat, kausap sa telepono, kasama sa mga lakad o ka-text ng wantusawa eh may gusto sayo at magkakatuluyan kayo. Meron lang talagang mga taong sadyang friendly, sweet, flirt, malandi, pa-fall o paasa."

21. "Huwag magmadali sa babae o lalaki. Tatlo, lima , sampung taon, mag-iiba ang pamantayan mo at maiisip mong hindi pala tamang pumili ng kapareha dahil lang maganda o nakakalibog ito. Totoong mas mahalaga ang kalooban ng tao higit sa anuman. Sa paglipas ng panahon, maging ang mga crush ng bayan nagmumukha ding pandesal, maniwala ka."

22. "Minsan kahit ikaw ang nakaschedule, kailangan mo pa rin maghintay, kasi hindi ikaw ang priority."

23."Mahirap pumapel sa buhay ng tao. Lalo na kung hindi ikaw yung bida sa script na pinili nya."
24. "Alam mo ba kung gaano kalayo ang pagitan ng dalawang tao pag nagtalikuran na sila? Kailangan mong libutin ang buong mundo para lang makaharap ulit ang taong tinalikuran mo."

25. “Mas mabuting mabigo sa paggawa ng isang bagay kesa magtagumpay sa paggawa ng wala.”

26. “Hindi lahat ng kaya mong intindihin ay katotohan, at hindi lahat ng hindi mo kayang intindihin ay kasinungalingan.”

27. "Kung nagmahal ka ng taong di dapat at nasaktan ka, wag mong sisihin ang puso mo. Tumitibok lng yan para mag-supply ng dugo sa katawan mo. Ngayon, kung magaling ka sa anatomy at ang sisisihin mo naman ay ang hypothalamus mo na kumokontrol ng emotions mo, mali ka pa rin! Bakit? Utang na loob! Wag mong isisi sa body organs mo ang mga sama ng loob mo sa buhay! Tandaan mo: magiging masaya ka lang kung matututo kang tanggapin na hindi ang puso, utak, atay o bituka mo ang may kasalanan sa lahat ng nangyari sayo, kundi IKAW mismo!"
28. "Ang pag-ibig parang imburnal...nakakatakot kapag nahulog ka, it's either by accident or talagang tanga ka.."

Whew!! After all the attempts of having my own blog, finally I decided to create my own. It was always part of my hobby on writing on my own journal when I was still in my teenage years. Eventhough there were never exciting or new things happened, I still find time to write on those funny stuffs I had experienced. And thank God that nowadays, blogging sites were created..just like this one.
I'm glad that I had found this blog site wherein I could release my inner self by means of blogging!
Hope I could find some blogger friends (?!) who could help me out since I'm newbie here..
I know this would be a fun fun experience for me!!
