I have notice

When I accepted to manage the business offered to me by bev's father, I don't think that I can experienced a very hard time coping everything. All my time was occupied by this useless stuff, I never gain from the business because when I handled it, its already in the lost situation, beside, I noticed that I cant already save some of my money from the allowance that I received from my boss. Another thing is, I gained unhealthy body, lack of time for my daughter. So, I decided to give back the said business to bev's father, since, sometime we made a hard discussion about the business and a cause for us to fight through texting.

A reason maybe why he offered that business, because he wanted to escaped his obligation financially for bev, hence, he is suffering a financial support for bev because he has a lot of obligation to his 6 children in different woman and presently living to a widow woman with two children and now they have one year old daughter and the she is pregnant again.

Well, I discussed the annulment processed with him the last time we talked personally, but he was shock for the amount to pay when I told it, so he said, I will be the one to spend for this annulment, one of his reason why he is not interested to spend some amount for this stuff, because he said he is free to act and do what he wants.

In my situation, it is hard for me to do what I want, I am living in a Christian ways, I am not perfect but, I need to do something that God will be pleased in handling my life. I need to be ready for what life that brings unto me, a life that someday I am free to love someone, someone that God prepared for me.

What a Joke!!


I started my work as busy as like a hungry dog. I do all things to finish, as I need to remind again my boss about the renewal of his Notarial Petition. He was busy preparing the documents and he was in hurry to complete all requirements of its Annexes for his petition . I also need to finish the notarial books to submit in the Office of Clerk of Court. The same, busy typing some documents and helping my co-workers to segregate the Voter's Registration Forms filed by the voter's registrants, and sometimes I help my co-workers to encode data for biometrics.

Well, my boss asking for a glue to paste his picture in a long bond paper. I told him to wait since, I need to look the drawer if there still some glue left, but I cant no longer find any bottle of it. My boss ask some of my co-workers outside, but, Madam Jehan advice him to used some cook rice to paste in his pictures. I heard it, but I though it's only a joke, so, I tried to stand up again from my chair and check again some drawers, at the same time, I entertained our clients, until I forgot about the glue.

When I come back in his table, he keeps murmuring, and said, “See…..I need to use the cook rice to paste my picture, it’s too dirty, look!!...” I tried to hide my smile and control my laugh, so, I seriously face and talk my boss to wait for me a little bit, I choose to go outside and find some glue to other office, but all offices already closed. When I come back, hehehehe..... I keep smiling when I saw him, pasted his pictures in the clear bond paper, and what I did is, I extend my hand to help him, and sometimes, I do smiling from his back….good he didn't seen my reaction, or else…he will keep me out..hehehehe….until now every time that I remember it, I keep smiling and imagining his faced when he talks to me about the cook rice.

POWER OF SMILE

Do you know the power of SMILE??
Have you tried to SMILE to your enemy?
Is the SMILE makes you famous?


Yes, SMILE is the friendliest way of greetings to everyone you know and you don't know. SMILE will create a new friendship and can make your day bright.

If you want to have a bright day, you must awake with smile in your lips, smile while praying, and then smile to everyone at home. This is one secret that I usually do, I don’t want to get old that’s why I do SMILE always. SMILE helps me to become famous to those who don’t know me, why? Because every time I have papers to follow-up outside the office, I went to every department and give my sweet smile, in response, they smile at me too, till they ask my name and every time I met them in the aisle they smile and say hello. Some strangers asked my name because of my SMILE, some wants to be my friend since my smile attracted them.

Hmmm…beside my man was capture by my sweet smile in my picture as he commented that there’s something very especial in my Smile.

And for those who really hate me, I can still offer my SMILE with them…because I know they HATE it…hehehehhe….well, if my boss got angry, I just only give my SMILE.

The power of SMILE will makes us famous. You sometimes create a good relationship to your co-workers and to those who don’t like you. You can’t count your friends everyday because of your SMILE. And if you’re worried about your age, SMILE will help you to become young, SMILE is a powerful to become somebody.

Punctuality Problem



Most of us especially those who are religious people, were busy preparing their self going to the church. They are particular with their time to go on time in the church. They wake-up early to prepare to attend the mass, worship God, and sharing Bible message.

Yes, its Sunday, our worship time scheduled at 9:00am-10:00am for Bible study, 5 minutes break then at 10:05 am to 12:00 noon for worshiping, We usually attend every Sunday, unless me and my daughter were in other place, or sick, or busy. If we can’t attend the worship and bible study, we find some time in the evening for bible sharing at home.

Yet, I got some problem about myself every Sunday, I don’t know, but sometimes, I feel tired to awake early in the morning, sometimes, I spend my spare hours to finish my cloth washing, household chores, of which I cant notice my time. My daughter as she is still in the bed at 9:00 in the morning. Though I know that I need her to wake-up early to get started to go in the church, I can’t still make it. I can only count Sundays that we were not late. I’m now imagining, if I die, God will open the door late for me…huhuhu….but of course, I do all my best to be punctual. I won’t promise, but I will do my best now to be early in OUR SUNDAY WORSHIP, a shame with myself only one day for worshipping gets me hard to be punctual.

The Post - Election Evaluation and Strategic Planning Seminar and Workshop

The Commission on Elections of General Santos City, conducted a two days seminar and workshop regarding the Post-Election Evaluation and Strategic Planning, this seminar headed by the City Election Officer/Acting PES-South Cotabato, Atty. Jose M. Villanueva, and Facilitated by Mr. Rodolfo De Leon, Jr.

Our participants involved with different entities, the eight (8) districts of Department of Education, DILG, PNP, Task Force Gensan, OLPGV, Treasurers Office and COMELEC General Santos City, Sarangani Province and South Cotabato.

Atty. Michael C. Abas, on his short-talk, he introduce the new adopted correct Electronic System used during the full automation of the ARMM elections last August 11, 2008, such as: The Optical Mark Reader (OMR) Technology and Direct Recording Electronic (DRE) Technology.

The Automated Counting Machine (ACM) is a machine which uses the Optical Mark-Sense Reader (OMR) system to count the votes in the ballots. It is composed of 2 Laptops, 2 Digital Scanners, 2 card readers, 1 hub and 1 printer. In automated elections using ACMs, the voter is given a paper ballot containing the candidate’s names with corresponding ovals to shade. The votes in the shaded ballots will then be scanned and counted using the ACM.

This system makes use of ballots, considering the fact that it is already familiar to most members of the electorate, this system was recommended as the most suitable for the Philippine setting. With the use of centralized counting centers, a ballot counter could be assigned to count the ballots from several precincts, or even from a whole municipality, depending on the number of registered voters.

The Direct Recording Electronic (DRE) system, the voter is presented with a screen showing all the names of the candidates. To cast his vote, the voter has to touch the name of the candidate of his choice on the screen, or on a separate electronic ballot to be attached to the voting machine, and his vote automatically gets counted. Once the voter has confirmed his vote, the machine will print out a copy of his vote, which the voter will deposit in the ballot box.

In an automated system, counting will no longer be done by the Board of Election Inspectors (BEI). In an OMR system, the paper ballots will be brought to a central counting center where they will be fed into a counting machine and print out election returns. In a DRE system, the voting machines will count the votes stored in its internal memory and print out election returns.

This is the easiest way of proclamation of the winning candidates, only one day or three days to take and the results of the votes immediately appeared.

First Day of the Seminar.

I woke up early in the morning, to prepare myself to go to the office, I need to run and hurray to go to my work place, I need to deliver the letter of invitation to Our Lady of Peace for Good Voyage, in this city, I am glad because it was a walking distance and it takes ten 10 minutes when I delivered it.

I successfully delivered the said invitation, …hehehehe…its too late invitation. A reason why I need to get hurry, the same I and Ellaine need to prepare some of the documents and supplies to bring for the seminar.

When we were already in the place, the Department of Education participants (8 districts) waiting for us, (hmmmm.... early bird), we instructed them to write their name in the attendance sheets and distributed photocopies of the topic and other supplies.

And when our invited speaker arrived, I and Ellaine keep murmuring, as we were waiting for the computer and projector operator. I decided to call our Boss and asked him about the operator. GRRRRRR….. we started the said seminar without the computer operator…our CD for national anthem and invocation was useless, theres no used at all....another GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR.... Wow…what a mess….I felt so bad, because I and Ellaine give our full effort to make the seminar success .... ok...NO COMMENTTTTTTTTTTTT.........because he is our second boss...he is useful anyway in the eyes of blind people.

The Post-Election Evaluation and Strategic Planning Seminar/Workhop Preparation

Before the Post Election Evaluation and Strategic Planning Seminar initiate, I and Ellaine assist to facilitate the said affair. Likewise, we’ve been occupied for the entire day in checking the important stuff. We coordinated in the different agencies and follow-up the budget intended for the said seminar and workshop. My co-worker Ellaine suggested to postponed the date from November 13-14, 2008 to November 26-27, 2008 due to lack of time, as we need to send a letter of invitation to different agencies, groups and institutions. We have only one (1) week preparation as we need to wait for the EO to sign the invitations.

Three days before the seminar, I received call from the participants for the confirmation of their presence. I though all are previously organized but when my Boss remind me if I send an invitation for the religious groups, ohhhhhh…I’m sorry … I forgot to write the invitation intended for them, so I tried to contact the Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage's telephone to inform them that they are one of the participants in the said seminar, but no one answered. I need to find ways to contact even one religious groups, and I send a message from my friend who is active in the religious activities to help me to communicate to any representative of this group..thanks to my friend, he helps me so much and make me calm, he advice me to deliver the said letter tomorrow early in the morning.

No Electricity.

When I arrived in my business establishment at about 12:00 noon from my home, felt me exhausted, I need to wait for 10 to 15 minutes before the tricycle will go to Barangay Fatima, in this city, and forty-five minutes for travel before I arrived here. I am expecting that we have already a lot of customers because its weekend, but, to my surprised, theres no electricity in our area and it killed the business for almost two hours.

And I was in panic when the electricity back, of which the server was experience error, I keep texting rowel about this matter, but i got the message very late. So, what I did is, I used the manual system..grrrrrrrrrrrrr....made me bad, because i wasn't able to watched the time consumed by our customers.

Well, I still recover my worries when my assistant arrived and assisted me till I went home.

wHAT a TiRed daY!!


I wake up early in the morning to prepare myself to report in the office, I need to be hurry as I have listed all things that I need to accomplish today. But, when I arrived in the office, I still need to attend the Flag Ceremony as one of our requirements every Monday morning. After attended the ceremony, I walked fast as I need to go to the SOCOTECO office, in this city, to pay some bills consumed by our business in Barangay Fatima. When I arrived in the said office, I need to line-up to the cashier and in my turn the cashier advice me to pay the bill in other place.

Luckily, my cousin is in the office, so I asked her to go in the office of SOCOTECO at Barangay Calumpang to pay the bill. My cousin is one of my close and favorite one that I have, as she don’t know that I appreciate her being. She is as a fighter woman, strong as well and talkative...hehehhe....and pretty.

Well, I though the SOCOTECO will plan to disconnect our electricity but fortunately, I called one of my source friend to give me a ten days allowance before I pay the balance of my bill...so, I still glad because every time I experience this kind of problem, there’s always an angel beside me...I want to thanks God because he did things reliable to accomplish one thing for my day.

Lessons from our mistakes.

After the Barangay and SK registration hold last August of 2007, our office became more busy and all staffs of the said office were truly tired. We entertained applicants from 7:00am till midnight for 26 Barangays with 100 to 300 persons, more or less, a reason why our office asked some support for our foods were one of the trusted person of our head of office contacted the CMO department for our food to support us. But before she called the catering service, I already called and reminded the catering to stopped the service for the reason that the remaining budget intended for the food we consumed was enough for payment.

So, after contacting the catering for another extension of food service, she didn't remind me how much the budget offered of the said department. I was surprised when I heard that only fifty thousand pesos allocated for that foods, of which the total amount of the food we consumed was One Hundred Ninety Four Thousand Pesos Philippine currency (P194,000.00). I tried my best to finished all the papers needed for that transactions, but it get me harder when the budget office returned the PR I prepared due to lack of budget allocated in that transactions. I asked some advice from different department but its too late to run the papers.

Year 2008, my co-worker Ellaine instructed by the EO to handle the budget 2008 with my assistance, we are the one facilitated the needs and transactions made by our office.

Before, the SB-1 hold, we submitted the Agency's SB for the unpaid transactions, and it was too late for us to know that we got a wrong entry about this transactions. As one department advice us to request for current budget instead of Unpaid for the previous years transactions. Me and Ellaine expected that the budget we requested was disapproved but it was far from our idea, all unpaid was approved, yet, we were happy to know the fact that we can already start to process documents to pay the foods caterer. Again, we talked and asked some advice from the head of office in different concerned departments. But, it was ended for nothing.

We are tired to facilitate this problem, but since, I am the one responsible about this matter as I'm the one assigned in this kind of tasks, it was my duty to respect every rules and regulations given by any concern departments. Before, the Elections hold, they advice me what to do in every transactions. But because someone did this kind of action, which I am not aware, and it was too late for me to take an action, now, I need to face the consequences. Well, its too late for me to go back from yesterday to change the situations. It was a lesson for me, because I was not aware the outcome of this kind of transactions. Although it was done by another person, the responsibility still in my hand.

Well, 2008 will end now, but this problem still remained, now, I got my lessons from this kind of mistakes.

Anyway, I'm still hoping that there still way to resolve this kind of problem. I just want to say my thanks to my co-worker Ellaine for being there as she helping me in her all ways, she is my angel and my helping hands, God will bless you because of your kind heart.

Moody Time.




Yes, I got started my bad mood when I entered in my work place and when I seen those I called vampires...take note VAMPIRES in the office...javel.. I bang the door while entering inside the office, as some of my co-workers noticed my frowned face. I don't really mind them, I've done some office work quietly, until I forgot what I felt and recovered myself from my bad mood..so I started to give a nice smile to our clients the same to my co-workers and friends.

And when my bosing reported in the office, I've talked about the confrontation between me and his security, yesterday. But, he advice me, not to take it seriously, he is not a right person for fighting. It's nonsense thing, he said "as long as you never done wrong, theres no reason to feel anything bad about it"..yes..I agree, but "I am only human, sometimes we were affected of what we had heard, a cause for degrading our personality. So, what I did is, I talked to this man without anything happened, just to make it normal.

Wrong Accusation.


After doing my office work, me and Ellaine went to the budget office to follow-up the travelling expense of our EO, then, asked some information about the current budget that we submitted before the SB hearing hold. Unfortunately, our Budget proposal for SB was disapproved, we dont know what are the reasons, and when Ellaine talked about it in the office, and the security guard of our EO, reacted and talked to her not to bring me in any transactions in the other building, because according to him, I am the reason why all the budget was disapproved.

I felt bad about it and i confronted him, what his reason why the budget proposal was disapproved. Is there's something wrong with me? how he can sure that I am the reason why the budget proposal was disapproved? And he answered directly that my reputation in the CMO office is already bad because of my friend who accused me things that I never done, and until now, I wasn't able to talked to the concern person about it because I am not interested, it is not my lost anyway. Hmmm..I am wondering why she needs to do that, because I am not a famous woman, beside, the head of that office don't know me. It seems that I am only an ordinary employee they have no reasons to feel angry, as long as my boss trusted me.


Well, is just because this man hated me so much, as he he as an envy feelings , I heard from one of my officemate that he made some complaint about me, I am lucky because my boss gave me allowance everyday aside of my salary that I recieved, I still have a secretary..huh...grrrrr....hmm ...he is deserving to feel that because of his insecurities...good for him..jaja.

Fortunately, I am one of the luckiest person..yes... because all of these things that i receive is God's blessings. God knows everything, and I already pray them..especially those people who hates me...God will give them peace..they need it.

Anyway, I dont know how to hate my anemies, I do love and pray for them...for you and other vampires of our office...Goodluck and God bless you...May you have peace in your heart and life.

First Day of my Business.

Yes, I decided to start to handle the business this 15th day of November 2008, its a hard thing for me because now, my daily routine was affected.

I used my weekends for household chores, do clothes washing, entrecard dropping for my daughter vyne , chatting with my man, and napping for three or four hours in the bed.

Early in the morning, my first hour of my waking-up time, I do follow all things to finish and I add my nuga best for 45 minutes in my routine, before I travel in Barangay Fatima.

Well, I talked to rowel, the one who took charge the business, and asked him some information about the business. I also asked to guide me how to operate the system controlling the customer's consume time. As far as I know, all income is recorded in that system. Then, I asked about the electricity bill and internet bill. I still not open about his commissions because i forgot to take it down in my note how many percent for him.

The internet cafe, contained 18 units of computer, 4 are not serviceable, 13 units are serviceable, 1 unit used as a server. Some costumers entering for games and some are for internet, but at about 11:00 in the morning, I observed that the internet connection was time out, this service offered by DC'Technology of Globe. I got the mobile phone of the technical officer of this office, and the 2 landline telephone, I sent them a message and called them but theres no answers from them. I asked rowel if the connection offered by the DC Technology is always inconsistent, or its only happened only this day, I observed that a lot of customers entering here inside for internet use, and its our lost every single of time because we cant offer them a good service since our internet connection was lost. We got a zero customers from 1:00pm to 3:00pm in the afternoon, the connection back at 3:00pm, and then, the customers followed to enter, as all pc was occupied.

For my first day, I observed around, the customers, the expenses made this whole day, and the income as well, of course, I also observed the one who took charge the business. This is my first day observation about the business. And hoping that soon, I can handle my time in a right manner that could not create trouble to my health, and time for my daughter my baby boy and my work.

Work or Business?


Choosing two things get me hard to handle weeks ago. But before I say yes I need to think the consequences of the decision that i make if i choose one.

Work.

I worked for almost four years as a secretary in the office of the City Election Officer in this city. I do love my work since my boss trusted me in all aspects of my task, although sometimes i made a counted "palpak" in my job.

My salary and allowances is worth for our daily needs, we survive from the compensation that I received every 15th and 30th days of the month and an everyday allowance from my "dakilang" boss. I described my boss, as "good person, considerate, kind, respectful and down to earth person. He is a kind of person that you can treasure. Around my work mates, they are also good to me, although sometimes theres a misunderstanding between them but its too normal for this kind of places, this is part of our life.

Business.



It seems that my ex-hubby offered me the business after the tremendous experienced he suffered this year, he send me a message to manage the business, as he already leave the house and he asked somebody to took charge the two (2) internet cafe to other persons. He gave the keys of the closed business establishment and instructed those who took care the house that he already waive the house to me and to our daughter. Well, I sent him back a message that how we can survive if I start to manage the business without electricity, no computer and other units in that closed establishment..until he decided to let me manage first the internet cafe located in the market of Barangay Fatima. And promised me to offer all our needs to start our own business at the same time he will give the internet cafe business to vyne if she is already studying in College.

Wow, its a great opportunity for us, yet I still need to think about it, I need to do things that someday, my decision would not create a future problem between me and my ex-hubby. I still have a doubt, i will not give my full trust.

Before, I decided to accept this offers, I asked some opinion from my friends and they gave me a positive and negative comments which helps me a lot to decide. So what I did, instead to resign from my work, i only asked permission to my boss and let him know about it. All of them, gave their emotional support and encourage me more to do all this things for the great success that I need to obtain in the future.

In other hand, I never forget to pray to our great Father above, I know He has a reason why this opportunities for me and for my daughter offered to us, because He knows best for us..God blessings is in our hands always, He never leave us whatever happens, me and my daughter live in God's will. Thank you Lord, for being here in our heart reminding us always who we are in your life.

Happy Birthday!!

Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday to you!!Happy Birthday, happy birthday!!! ...a usual word for greetings to our close friends, family, love ones, and those who are especial to us, on the day of their birthday. Birthday is one occasions that we celebrate every year. Every time we attend a birthday party we honor to give a gift and wishes them a long life.

My birthday celebration is typical, I only pray and thanks God for the special life He offer, I pray for my especial wishes, pray for my health and for my family.

My daughter's birthday??? yes, it seems that she is already teenager, she only requested a so called "kunting salo-salo" for the family.

I want to dedicate this late birthday greetings to my daughter, a very sweet, kind and loving one, now, she is facing her new world, after the struggled against the life she encountered before, she is quite different now, she grown up with my love and care, she is lucky because I, as her mother dedicated her time and make all things possible for her. I teach her to know herself more and I did learn also from her. Sharing more time to my daughter is a worth keeping for both of us. She is the reason why I am become strong and fighting obstacle in order to win for us. We maintain the peace and harmony in our home.

I would like to share some photos as one of my recognition to the bonding we build being a mother and father to her, a friend, and at the same time a stranger, her adviser in times of her failures and the play mate every time she play, a companion in times of prayer:

the PRAYER.



Dear Jesus,

Thank you for the gift of life, and for the blessing to be among those who know that you are the son of God.

Thank you for the gift of sight that let me see the wondrous things You made, and for my soul to help me see beyond my sight.

Thank you for all the things and especially my heart which You placed magnetic seeds of seeds of grace that draw me forever to Your LOVE.

I know You hold me forever in the palm of Your hand and shield me with Your Holy Place. Yet as years pass by, Lord, I fear the yoke of sickness and pain and worry how my life will end.

And so I humbly come to ask You, Lord, that when my time comes to leave here below, do not call me by sudden death, not by accident that tears the body apart, not by illness that leaves the mind confused or the senses impaired; not at the mercy of evil forces, not with a heart filled with hate or a body racked with pain; not abandoned; lonely, without love or care, not by my own hand in a moment of despair.

Jesus, let death come as a gentle friend to sit and linger with me until You call my name.

Then let me enter Your Heavenly Home to receive Your final gift of grace to be near You forever and look upon the divine countenance on your Holy Face.

Amen.

True friends is someone very especial that we treasured, they were part in our life. One who help us to mold our personality as individual.

A true friends is someone especial created by God to help us through physical and emotional healing. If we suffered from problems, we run to our trusted friends, we shared our emptiness and frustrations with them. If we have secrets, our true friends is the one who kept it.

In my early teens, I shared a lot of happy moments with my friends, when i felt down, they offered their hands to help me, when I felt sad, they made me laughed, when I need their time, they are free for me. Through my friends, I learn how to value the relationship being a true family in a circle of friendship.

Many years pass by, my friends never forget to sent messages, sometimes, they called me through my mobile phone. And it seems that they are far away from me, I would like to say thank you to my following friends:


Lydia Paloma (Balot) - I appreciate you because you never forget me until now, despite of your good life in Malaysia with your family, you still have a good heart. Every time you visited your home town, you won't forget to say hello and I appreciated you everytime you called me without any cost. The only thing that change to you is the status of your life and that life is worthy,because that's the value of your struggle in other country and your still a good and kind person.

Lilia Paloma (Yad) - Thank you my friend, we shared a lot of happiness and loneliness before, although we have already our own family, we still shared a good hands and we both listen to each other. Your the one I treasured, a friend that I wont forget. You never change, your still the same person that I know before. Thank you so much because you let me, to be your friend.

Janet Catral - hmmmmmm....our hardheaded friend, cute and pretty...we have the same dillema in life, especially in man...yet, we both fighting to recover the pains and sorrows we experienced. My friend don't worry we can still find a right man for us...Noooo... I mean we are a good woman and let those man find us...ok...

Yes, they are my true friends that I treasured. A friends that I never forget whenever I am, I do remember them and reminiscing the days we shared. They are my especial friends to be treasured, I cannot longer meet friends like them.

BuSy




My day, today, is sort of a little busy. I started my morning sunshine by making some "lambing-lambing" to my little baby boy and headed my way to the office to prepare the necessary documents to submit to the court but when I sat down in my computer, I wasn't able to do what is ask of me due to my mounting numbers of clients. I'm glad because my boss stayed in the office for the whole day which helped me to do my unfinished work. Before our work time ended, we, me and Ellaine visited, Kuya Abel whom reminds us that there will be a meeting this coming Saturday, October 18, at exactly 9:00 in the morning in regards to Mindanao's 2nd Blog Summit. He introduced us to our fellow blogger who uses wordpress and showed us the freebies!! I felt more excited as the date of the summit approaches. After that, me and Ellaine went back to the office.

When I went back home, I was surprised to see my daughter crying and sobbing in one corner of our room because she only got upset. I showed her my love and encourage her that she has her own time to shine. And that is how my day ended up.

After SiX yEars.

Back in the year 2002, year of anxiety and difficulty, pain and sorrow. Suffering from unexpected event of my life, is one of the struggle drama of the same. It’s too hard to accept that you failed the dream that you want to achieve. It’s too hard to decide whether you leave your family, because of unexpected reasons. It’s too hard to fight if you don’t know how to defend yourself. And the worst thing is, it’s too hard to tell the truth if they don’t believe.


Who helped me?

God is the one who protected me from my troubles; He answered all my prayers and helped me to decide for my life. Leaving my family especially my daughter is a very hard decision that I carried. I left without bringing anything, the house, business and my beloved daughter. I left for reasons. I went to my uncle's place and there I took some rest, to recover and decide, I prayed everyday, read the bible and participate in church activities. After eight months of recovering, I brought all the answers and there I understand that God has something very special for me.

What happened when I came back?

My hubby was surprised when I back home, and I am not amazed when I saw his woman carrying their new baby, I gave them a good smile. I told them not to fret, because I will not make any action towards them; instead I talked them in a nice way, and give my friendly hands wishing them to have a happy family. The important thing for me is to get my eight year-old daughter with his permission, and I successfully took my daughter without any hesitation. We started to live at my mom’s small house. Good thing because I was hired and employed in the office of the Election Officer as a secretary though I am undergraduate.

It's took time to adjust ourselves to a new life, but me and my daughter started to accept and enjoy the life that were facing. We already appreciate the things around us; We become more close to each other, share some dreams and we talked regularly as one of our way to appreciate the new path of our living. Peace, Love and Happiness is what we gained, our life today teach us to be more spiritual strong.

The present..

Counting the years, life became more valuable, I have a lot of accomplishment of which my present life helps me to become mature and learn new things around my new world. I met different kind of personality, a way to understand the value of every aspect of life. I am a dumb before, comparing today; I’ve been more vigorous in my work, more receptive to my daughter; closer to the Highest above though I am not participate the activities in the church. I am the woman that full of struggles in life, became more aware in my surroundings and sensitive about the goals that I’ve started.

So far, I can look back from where I am before, and I noticed that in the middle of the bridge of where I am now, is the things that I never think to regret. Whatever harmful things that I encountered, I considered it a spices of life, without this, I cannot see myself. I now understand that all different aspect of life molds you to become a real person. A real person that could help the human being to persist through the goal of life that he/she wants and make him/her satisfied to the objectives of their life.

This is how I become responsive of my surroundings, became more flexible, effective and efficient in my work, a loving and caring, sweet and honest to my love one, a helper to the needy, more patient to the hardheaded, and a nature lover. I am not a religious woman, but I believe God, the father and Jesus Christ the savior. Indeed, without God in my heart, I cannot appreciate the love He offered, I cannot experience the happiness He give, I cannot feel the contentment of life that I have. God is my life, my daughter is my happiness, my work is my achievement, my friends is the color of my day, my enemies tease my patience, my family complete my whole being and my dear man is my struggle….huhuhu….

Values

The ethics of value depends to all human being how they make a decisions. Every time we made decision our values can acknowledged in every priority that induce our choices and behaviors.

According to psychologist Brian Hall “The ideals that give significance to our lives that reflected through the priorities that we choose and that we act on consistently and repeatedly.”

These ideals intervene to our private world images, hopes and dreams; in one end to outer world what we experienced and observed everyday in our behavior, on the other. Our values determined our priorities in the decisions we make and the actions that we choose.

If we have priorities, then act for it, our behavior will help us to go through our dreams, considering all facts, that we need to accept the criticism of other people behind us, to remind us who we are and what we are, it was a matter of changing. If we close your ears, then all choices we made in your daily life will bring you for nothing.

My PerSonal ReSoluTion.




I am chary of the truth that my existence is fulfilled more momentous by the significance of love. I shall not be a believer of violence, harshness and ravenousness. I shall make my effort to avoid resource that tends to hurt others or root them excessive difficulty. I am endowed with gift that allows me to continually work for a better life. My faith is a gift that strengthens me in times of crisis and to work for the best of my God-giveth gifts.

Self-awareness (Part II)



The importance of Self-awareness. Self concept is called our image, we can attained positive self image by accepting yourself, recognized your strength/weaknesses, overcome fear, accept compliments, give compliments, precise yourself, engage in positive self-talk and maintain physical health. Accepting the way your self-concept increases your self-awareness. The more you understand why you view yourself as you do, the better you will understand who you are.

There are four (4) selves that represent each human person:

Known to others

- Open Selfrepresents all the information, behaviors, attitudes, feelings, desires, motivations, ideas and so on, that you know about yourself and others also know about you.

- Blind Self- represents information’s about yourself that others know but you do not.

Not known to others

- Hidden Self contains all that you know of yourself but keep hidden from others.

- Unknown selfrepresents those parts of yourself about which neither you nor others know.

Those four selves would be a way for each human person to aware of what kind of living they have, how they become aware oneself in order to achieve the dreams that they want and how to help them to motivate the desires of their heart in order to satisfy in a nice manner.

In realistic view about self-awareness, do not think of yourself more highly than you should. In other words, no superiority attitude. rather have a sober view of your strengths. On the other hand, do not exaggerate your weaknesses and look down yourself. Also, do not excuse or rationalize your weaknesses. We need a realistic view of both our strengths and weaknesses if we are to know our true selves. How we see ourselves may be clouded by the feedback messages we received about ourselves from others...But how could anyone known more about you than you? Do not feel emotions or think your thoughts; they do not face the issues that you wrestled with. No one could know you better than you! Therefore do not let others look down on you.

Some people may not be prepared to face the truth about themselves. This maybe true. Therefore, everyone must be prepared to listen to others, especially significant others. Allow them re-examine your own perceived self-image. There are no perfect people and there are not perfect parents. Nevertheless, from a practical viewpoint, our parents who gave birth to us have the opportunity to observe us at close quarters over many years, would have a clearer insight or our character than anybody else. Yo don't have to acept their views but at least listen to them.

Self-awareness (Part I)

What made us aspire for such life? What kind of life do we like to have? What steps will we take to achieve that life?

Every human being aspires to have a better life, we do something to get what we dream, we dream to the things which are impossible, we made things that could reach our dreams...but how we can handle it in a good manner?

We know that human being grow up in different traditions, cultures and beliefs. They attained a different philosophy of life, which help them to develop their living.

According to Tao Tzu, “knowing others is wisdom but knowing yourself is enlightenment.”

Awareness is the opportunity in the formation process. Because you nurture in self-awareness, you will be better understand why you feel what you experience and what you behave as you act. To grateful then gives you the chance and self-determination to transform those things you would like to change about yourself and create the life you want. Without fully knowing who you are, self acceptance and change become possible.

Why we want it …is transparency about what you are and what you desire empowers to willfully and keenly raise those desires a reality. Or else, you will persist to get “trapped” in your inner dramas unknown attitude, allowing unknown though processes to determine feelings and actions.

In our practice, self-awareness is the key that unlocks the riches of life. We have all the answers we need to the questions of our lives right inside of us. All we have to do is to learn how to access our own wisdom, this begins with self-awareness. By giving attention to our senses, thoughts, feelings and intuitions it will helps in diving deep into our emotions to tap their sources. Seeing our belief and how it creates our reality and discovering our deepest essence.

There are benefits of self awareness. the better you understand yourself, the better you are able to accept or change who you are. Being the dark about yourself means that you will continue to get caught up in your own internal struggles and allowed outside forces to mold and shape you. As we upgrade our knowledge and skills to keep up with the ever-changing society.

end of PART I.

Back Again...

It’s a long time that I visit my blog…I decided to end this kind of stuff since I feel that I am one of those who are trying hard to write some articles in this site…I am not good in English something that I feel disgusting about it..I am too old to learn how to use the correct usage of grammar which sometimes my boss corrected my work…hmmmmm….I’m still lucky because my boss is not too strict instead he corrected my grammar..he always advice me to enroll again in my English 1 …(hehehehe)..in a nice way. But I replied him that my brain is already drained …an old woman like me has no chance to refresh any topic to listen from the professor, I think my professor will get irritated if I am his/her student…heheheh…

Well, it seems that my friend Elaine (http://www.scottzprincess.com) encouraged me to continue my blogging and advice me that writing any topics in my own blog sites might help me to enhance my English problem, through this my boss will be happy if he observe that I improved a little bit.

So, now I decided to cope my time and help myself to progress in this kind of stuff…I wish to myself that I can do it well, and change my life by blogging…hmmm….I hope that my visitors will enjoy to read some of my articles that I soon to write in my page…any comments and suggestions are welcome….now I decided to start one step of my dream in this kind of world…God bless you all…
