Don't Kill the Karma

Ever been through a heartbreak because your partner cheated on you?
Have you had someone go against your back just to make sure they'll look better than you?
Did someone ever made stories about you just to get them on their side?
Have you experienced defeat because someone didn't play fair and square?
Did you ever feel any anger, hatred, heartbreak, and the like, and you know you didn't deserve it?
Any of the like?

If yes, then read on. If no, still read on because this might be of good use to you or someone dear to you in the near future.

I know how hard it is to go through those heartbreaking experiences. You're heart's filled with hatred and anger against the person/s. You want the world to crash down on them; You want them to fail in their own life; You want them to feel pain - You want them to feel the same way you did when they did it you. Worst, you want them to feel more pain than you did.

Given this, I ask you, do not let your anger get the best of you. Whatever nasty thing they did to you, remember that karma does exist and the people who deserve bad karma will be given such. Do not go on doing revenge just for them to feel the same because sooner or later, you too, will get your karma for doing so.

Remember, you are for more better than those who did such awful things. So do not go down to their level just to make things equal. Be better than them; let them stay at the bottom; remain on top by going on with your life, living by doing the right thing, and lay away with karma getting the best of them. If you're going through something, remember that it'll all pass and you will be better than who you are now. They may be happy now, but one day they will fall to the ground and get what they deserve.

Live the better life, dear friend. You deserve to be happy. And you will be, just be patient, and pray.

I am...

I am a blessed lady because I am given ample times of happiness to feel the wonders of God...
..because I am given just the right challenges to develop me into a better person..
..because I am given enough problems to hone me into someone stronger than I was..
..because I have a family that will always love me no matter what..
..because I have relatives that support me how relatives should..
..because I have friends..true friends, that is..
..because I have a faithful partner..
..because I am who God wants me to be..
..because I simply, live..

Words I live by

"He has a reason for everything"

I like these words because they are very comforting and helps me keep my faith on God.

It is true that we go through things we don't want to be in; Sometimes we fail; There are those who fail a lot; Times when we aren't given what we want; The times when feel down. I could mention a lot of situations that could make us feel as if God hasn't been listening to our prayers; or He has not been fair to us.

But I'd like you to remember, that He ALWAYS listens.

I've read a post saying that God has three answers to our prayers: (1) Yes (2) Not Yet (3) No, because I will give you something better. And it is true.

(1) Yes - We feel most blessed when this is His answer. Isn't it amazing when you feel Him communicating through signs that He will provide for what you need? Most especially when He gives it to us right away. Amazing: that He knows how to provide it to us in such beautiful ways.

(2) Not Yet - We feel only slightly blessed when this is God's answer because in the middle of waiting we feel that we are neglected. But in reality, this is when we are being blessed more. Why you say? When this is God's answer to us, it means that He is taking some thought, molding His answer well; He is making sure that when He gives it to us, it will be at the right time and right place. Why? Because we are His children; because we are special and he wants to make sure that it will work right. When God says, "Not yet" he is doing a favor for us. Instead of us working things out, He has been the one working out things for us.

(3) No, Because I will give you something better - We feel most neglected by God when this is His answer because we feel that He doesn't give us the things we want and need. But this is all because we only focus on the first words of his answer: no. We never take time to feel what follows: because I will give you something better. Believe it or not, we are most blessed when God answers us with this sentence. Haven't you taken the thought, that God never really provides, no, as an answer. He will always give us something better and that if for a reason. We may not know it now, we may not know it ever, but He always has something planned for you that's why He didn't give us what we are asking for. We are most blessed during these times because God will provide us with something better than what we want. He feels that we do not need what we are asking so He doesn't give it to us. Instead, He gives more though into it, and provides a bigger blessing for us. We may not always feel or see those bigger blessings, but He has surely provided us with something bigger.

Year 2011

This year has been such a memorable one for me because this was when I got to experience a lot of things. And yes, things that aren't just about being happy. This was the year when I almost fell down to the ground. That feeling when all you want to do is disappear into thin air as if you don't exist.

But this year was when I learned a lot about life. I learned how to value things I didn't notice before. I got to learn more things about myself. I appreciated life more.

This was the year I graduated.

The year I became a certified Engineer.

The year I became more attached to my family and my clan.

A picture of me before my 18th birthday.
Looking back through the years, I am totally
better than who I was back then.
The year I realized that I am with the man God wants me to be with.

The year I learned that being happy is more important than being at the top.

The year I gained more friends.

The year I realized who weren't my real friends.

The year I was able to be more close to God.

Actually, I'm going out of the topic. The year 2011 isn't my happiest year, it's by far my most memorable year.

What Makes Someone Beautiful

Technically, when we say beautiful the common perception for us is the features of the face. If their eyes, nose, mouth, face shape, eyebrows, lashes are all in the perfect state and matches each other's state, then the person is perceived as beautiful.

For me, yes, this is what technically makes someone beautiful. But I believe in the truth that beauty is more than what the face can offer. Yes, I will not deny the fact that a person with perfect-matching features is a beautiful person. But I believe that looks isn't everything. I believe that a person with a kind heart is also beautiful. Sometimes even more beautiful than those whom are commonly perceived as beautiful.

I'm the kind of person who considers attitude as a very big factor in considering persons beauty. No matter how beautiful you are physically, if you've got a rotten attitude then you don't deserve the beauty award.

Meet my Family

My family is AMAZING!!

Don't get me wrong here. Yes, we're not the perfect little family, but we are amazing in our own special way.

My papa's very down-to-earth and should I mention, good looking (hehe). He is very cool as he knows how to adjust to our generation. He's also my gym buddy. I've really looked up to him by motivating me to go to the gym; simply seeing him go there makes myself motivated; If my dad can go to the gym regularly, I can do too. My dad's also cooks very well and our family is very lucky for that. May I also mention, that I got my singing skill (ehem) from him.

My mama is a person you'd really love to be with. She's very outgoing and knows very well how to socialize with people. She's very intelligent and she's a walking wikipedia! She knows how to bring up an interesting conversation. She even knows more about computers than me! She knows how to have fun and likes having an adventure. She got to travel to many places around the world so she's the kind of person who's got a lot to share.

I've got a cousin-turned-brother. Story is he's really my cousin but he's already considered as my brother. I've grown up being with him and him with our family. Yes, like the usual sister-brother relationship, we grew up teasing each other. But in the long run, that's what made our relationship better. Thanks to laptops, movies, internet, we got to find things we like in common. It isn't hard opening up a conversation with him and his very jolly and has a great sense of humor.

I've got a sister (our youngest). We're totally opposites but despite that, we also have a lot of things we like in common. We know how to have a good conversation with each other and we know how to have fun even if it's just the two of us. We find happiness/a reason to smile/a reason to laugh in the most random things. She's also intelligent and is very fun to be with. Like our papa, she's also good in cooking and she's now aspiring to become a chef.

Valentine's For All

This may be a late post but I think it's worth posting.

Valentine's Day has been known as the day of love. Most of the time it is perceived as the day for couples; those who are in a relationship. That's why most of those who are single despises the day because they are reminded of being lonely.

Let me just say, I have celebrated this February 14, 2012, as a lucky one. My partner got to come to our city as a break from his work (yes I am in a long distance relationship) and it was our first time to celebrate valentine's day together. But our celebration was sort of  unique and quite out of the traditional.

We woke up 6:30am that day to get dressed up for a jog-turned-walk. We walked from the house up to Session Road. But I think that our walk was still as healthy as it should have been. I think it's what it should be called as a fat-burning walk.

We were supposed to have breakfast at Army Navy at Session Road but the resto was still closed. So we decided to have breakfast at Vizcos. It's a good thing they open up early for people who need to have breakfast at town. I ordered their own made Tocino (it's one of my fave breakfast viand) and he ordered Beef Tapa.

While eating breakfast we talked about my clique from high school and wondered how they were doing. I told him that I like giving gifts to my friends during valentines - particularly those aren't in a relationship so as they won't feel lonely on love day. So he decided to help me do it that day. Right after breakfast we bought some gifts to give to two of my friends. One was at school because she was taking up Medical School, so we delivered it to her there. The other wasn't at her office - it turned out that her day-off was changed - and she wasn't at their store so we weren't able to deliver it to her personally. But what we did paid off because they were really happy of what we did for them.

Right after delivering, we had a quick rest at the house then took a bath and dressed up to have our lunch date at John Hay. We finally got to eat at Army Navy already. I ate my Chicken Burrito while he had his Double Burger. Happy and satisfied, our stomachs were full.

We took a stroll around John Hay to kill time because we were to fetch my nephew (his godson) at school by 3:30pm just as we promised him that day. It was still early so we sat at a picnic table and talked about any random thing we could come up with. I really enjoy talking to him and we don't get to do this often because of his work so I cherished that moment a lot.

We also found time to take fun pictures of ourselves (thanks to camera timers.. hehe). I love how I can be silly with him and not worrying about him getting turned-off.

It started to drizzle so we had to leave John Hay earlier. We arrived at my nephew's school 30 minutes before his dismissal. We were able to see my other nephew (who is also at the same time my godson) there since he went to the same school and had an earlier dismissal.

We brought my nephew (the one we were to fetch) to SM because I had to buy something there and of course at the same time to be able to treat my nephew there and have him enjoy. He got to ride the carousel and the motorcycle rentals.

And since we were at SM already, I thought of also giving a valentine's day gift also to my friend who was working there. I also thought of buying a gift that my nephew could give to his mom when we arrived home.

We went home at around 5pm all happy and satisfied for a very fulfilling valentines day. When me and my partner talked about it when we got home, we talked about how we were able to make ourselves and others happy too that valentines day. Our day was very fulfilling and we're looking forward to more happy days to come - not only for us but for everyone.
