Today marks my 36th years of existence.
Out of that 36 years, is my 6 years mellow dramatic married life. And to be honest, I want to end up that chapter.
Why? Because I didn’t become a better person. Right now while writing this, I’m hurting. I’m in pain. And I could not even recognize myself anymore. This was not me 6 years ago. I’m a simple, God-fearing and obedient person. I’m kind, I was loved and respected. I’m not me anymore. I thought I would grow spiritually, emotionally but the opposite thing happen. That’s all because I’m blindly in love with a man whom I thought was my everything. I thought he would bring out the best in me. Instead, I’m slowly becoming a BEAST. No, he’s not a womanizer. But he’s that kind who would think more of himself than anyone else. He’s selfish. He’s so insensitive. He’s only kind to me when he needed something. So many times that he challenged my patience. So many times I tried to understand him. So many times I’m emotionally in pain and he didn’t even know how to say sorry. He showed his regrets through actions but he never uttered it. So lame.
If not for my the kids, I would have been gone to a place where I could find myself again.
But honestly, I want to just simply evaporate before I’ll be a stranger to myself completely.
Yes indeed! We need to enjoy the moment we have now because we’ll never know what will happen to us tomorrow and the next days to come. As what others would rather say, Make the most out of life today as if it’s the last day of your life.
How should you live your life when you are facing so many trials? How should you face all your trials when you don’t know what to do about it?
RELAX. It may sound so simple and EASIER SAID THAN DONE. But that’s the only thing we can do actually. RELAX and PRAY. There are situations that are beyond our control.
Let’s learn how to be reliant to God’s providence. To His amazing wonders- to His miracles. In that way- we can ENJOY life on HIS presence.
Sometimes, life is hard to deal with.
Circumstances overwhelmed us, no matter how we tried to find joy in the midst of trouble, it’s hard and even harder if we are being pressured.
They said, in order to survive we need to overcome all the life’s issues and concerns and we need to adjust to the people in our surroundings.
The kind of people whom we dealt with everyday, are the same people who may break or make our day.
Those are the people who may lift us up or put us down.
The real challenge that we need to overcome is ourselves.
How we deal with pressures affects our emotion, our attitude and our thoughts.
How we deal with others matters most.
Reality check. People are tend to be insensitive sometimes.
Dealing with those kind of people is far more harder than dealing with a fool. But that’s life, and that’s part of our daily existence. However, we can still choose to ignore the situation or the person. What matters most is that you get to live by everyday with so much stories to tell in the future. A story that could spice up your life. And perhaps, it will brought us to the realization that those people are somehow part of the contributory factors that made us the total person that we ought to be:
STRONGER, WISER, AND A REAL OVER COMER.
Being a teacher, I played a very crucial role in molding my students to help them become a responsible citizen. I made it a point to become my advocacy ever since I accepted this teaching job. However,it was not that easy as I thought it would be. My students have came from different upbringing. Some are manageable while there are those who will really test your patience to the limit.
I have encountered lots of students, from college down to Grade 7. And I must say, maturity comes not with our chronological age. There are Grade 7 who can easily get every task you assigned to them, While there are College students who just can’t get the instruction once. Sounds quite funny, but that is the sad reality.
So now, I was greatly challenged with this advocacy. It became a burden to me and I need to do something about it. Right now,I am handling an advisory class in Grade 10. Mind you, not all are behaving in accordance to their age. Such students will really push you to the limit. Somehow, they are teaching me one lesson- to go on and must not give up on them because that is my advocacy in life.

“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder”- an adage that holds true until now. However, beauty can be enhanced in so many ways. You don’t have to go through pins and needles in order to achieve that beauty enhancement. a simple change on the way you look can already make a difference. The way you carry your dress is another factor. And most importantly, always wear that confidence you need in yourself.
So, how to achieve a stunning look? Well, you really don’t need to spend much on cosmetics because the less you wear a makeup, the better it would be. Plus, you will be spare from the harmful effect caused by too much chemicals on your skin. You don’t need to spend on costly clothing as well. Achieving a good look does not merely rely on the price tag, rather, it’s how you carry yourself.
Taking good care of yourself, is by far, the best way to maintain a good look. Starting from your crowning glory down to the sole of your feet- it should be pampered. However, some people are not blessed with beautiful hair. Others are struggling with dry and frizzy hair. Some expert says that bad hair are caused by bad hormones. Some people spend much on the salon just to fix their hair. But again, too much exposure on chemicals used by some salon will do more harm than good on your hair. So why take the risk? Why not use wigs instead?
When you opt for wigs, don’t settle for less. Find the quality of wigs that looks so realistic just like what we can find at Divatress company-the number one leading e-commerce store that specializes on wigs and hair care products. More and more women have already tried and were satisfied with their products. Below are some examples of their wig products:
Indeed, what Divatress can offer is beyond beautiful.

While having dinner one time together with my 3-year old daughter in one of the leading food chains, a little girl sitting next to our table suddenly lost grip of her drinks causing the soda to splash down to the floor. Accompanying her were two older ladies, I presumed one of them was her granny. Like any normal reactions, the older lady sitting next to her scolded her in quite bigger voice, big enough to cause others to look at their way. She even threatened her to call the guard. The reaction of the child was really scared. So scared that she stand behind the chair where her granny seated. Their other companion just continue to eat, while looking, and perhaps, listening to the other lady who continued to threaten the child that the guard will soon pick her up that they need to leave ASAP if she doesn’t want to get caught. The little girl cried (maybe out of fear) that when they are ready to leave, she gripped her granny’s shirt as if she was really scared of someone.
What I just witnessed made me realize something. I have two super hyper kids (5 & 3) and I am crossing my finger that the little one (8 months old baby) will grow up more tamed than her elder siblings. I often blow my top whenever they misbehaved. My son moves a lot, he cannot lay still in one position. He really loves to play and run. His younger sister imitated him. Most often than not, I keep on scolding my son in a manner where most stressed out Mom would do. I yelled at them, spanked them, and sometimes, even push them outside the door. Yeah, I did that twice to my son. But I didn’t say I love what I did. Because the truth is, every time I did something harsh to them, I cried thereafter. It made me wonder how cruel I could become to them if I will not learn how to control my temper.
The issue of discipline is very crucial for a Mom like me who talks a lot more than my hubby. I almost do all the decisions at home. That is why whenever I tend to loose my temper, he just keep quiet. He pacifies my children from crying when I cannot control myself anymore.
But after that one incident in the food chain one afternoon I realized that scolding our children, yelling at them, spanking them will do more harm than good to them. Although I let them understand afterward why I spanked them, still it is not a good sighting. Am not saying that, we, parents, should spare our rod. But the place of discipline should be discreet, not in public, because young as they are, they deserve some respect.
Call me old school
Call me traditional
Call me conservative
But that’s me. Partly I am millennial, partly I am ancient.
Almost everyday I am surrounded with my millennial students. I almost memorize their language, their moves, their get ups, their likes as well as dislikes. Suffice to say, If I am to compare the youth now and then-there’s a huge difference! And teacher as I am, I felt obligated in correcting anything they do or say that I find quite unbecoming. I have this prying eyes that easily get distracted when I saw something that is unfitting. That is why I often speak what’s on my mind. And because of that I am oftentimes MISUNDERSTOOD.
Change is coming indeed! We just bade goodbye to 2016 and welcome 2017. People from all walks of life desire nothing but the best as the new year unfolds. As for me and my family, we are just thankful to God for His unfailing love and faithfulness. Since Christmas break is over, we are now heading to the realities of life- back to work and back to the place where our skills and expertise are badly needed. But then, all of these are just necessary in order for us to live our life the way we wanted it to be. That short holiday break have somehow gave us new inspirations to work harder in order to enjoy the fruit of our labor when the year ends again. That inspiration would even become better memories if we were just able to create memories by way of recording videos of those crazy and jolly moments that we’ve enjoyed together with our family. As we all know, people are very much into creating memories and sharing it to the whole wide world through the social media. Furthermore, social media may not be the only way of preserving those memories- people can also try using audio recording with the use of apollo duo or any recording medium to capture those karaoke singing sessions and a whole lot more. Indeed, it is such a good feeling to go back down to memory lane once in a while.
The AirTurn BT-105 Page Turner includes the Bluetooth Transmitter and two silent foot pedals.
When dining out with my hubby, I love places that has live band or acoustic performances. We are quite blessed because there are so many diners here in our place that offers nightly live bands. I had a friend who used to be my classmate too way back in college who performed live in a certain bar. She said performing live isn’t easy. The performer should prepare a lot of songs especially that some customers will have a request. They have to prepare old and new songs. Of course, getting the right lyrics is also very important. I understood when some performers have sheets in front of them which has all the lyrics that they need. It’s good thing that with the advance technology, they can use gadgets like their iPad or tablet for the lyrics of the song. And of course, along with that technology, they also need the new system of airturn bt 105 hands-free page turner which allows the performer to control their screen devices wirelessly and discreetly.
Now, isn’t it amazing?
Latest technologies, latest discoveries and almost everything about latest updates, you can find and read it in social media. I have nothing against it, however, I am just a little bit scared of the effect of social media to the future generations.
Yes, it is true that signing up in any social media platforms has its terms and conditions (if I am not mistaken). And it was clearly stated there that one must be 18 years of age for him to sign up. However, such term became rubbish. Ask my three nieces who are still in grade level, they all have facebook accounts and I just cannot blame them. Facebook is open for 18 years and above only yet they have fb games that are meant to be played by, well, young minded. Again, there is nothing wrong with that. However, how can we protect the little ones from the harmful influences brought by social media? One can post anything on twitter, facebook and other social media accounts without any restrictions. Though one can report anyone posting anything inappropriate as a spam and can block the user but again, it has to be visible first on the wall which is possibly already viewed by the public before it can be reported as spam and blocked. I am not sure if you get what I am trying to say, or even aware about reporting the post as spam and blocking the owner.
My only point here is that, can facebook and other social media platforms assign anyone to act as administrator who will evaluate the post/pictures if it is appropriate or not before it can be visible? Well, with the different languages that we have and with so many socail media account users around the globe with different nationalities, it is somewhat impossible. Or maybe, the least thing that we could do as a parents is by going back to the basic- delimit your children to the usage of social media websites. I guess, that is realistic in every home, but I cannot really tell if such guidance can still continue even in school. Social media is good if and only if being utilized to share good things and inspiring stories only. However, social media is also an avenue that wreck happy relationships, the medium for bad influences and gateway to satisfy selfish interests.
I can only hope for the better.
By the way, I took fb as an example because it is the most popular so far (based on my own assessments) among children under 18 years of age.
