Quit relying on people

I love what Joel Osteen said about people, they are like a scaffolding that somehow will be removed in your life for some reason, God is taking you to the next level. Not everyone that is with you by now may not be able to go where you are going. Some people are like scaffolding, they come into your life for a reason to help you reach a certain level. But at some point, God is going to remove the scaffoldings so you can shine. It is not that they are not good people, but their part in your story is over. God’s taking you to a higher level. Quit being frustrated by somebody that is not supporting you like they used to. We spend too much time trying to get people’s approval, trying to get them to validate us, then we’ll feel good about ourselves. The problem with getting your validation from people is, people can change their mind. One moment, people were shouting “Hosanna” waving palms branches. A few days later those same people were shouting “Crucify Him.” People can have a short memory, and if you are getting your value based on what people give you, how much they compliment you. Then, if for some reason, they stop doing that, you’ll forget who you are, your self-worth is coming from them. Quit relying on people and go to God. You do not need people’s approval you have […]

Passion- From Latin ‘Pati’ meaning Suffer

These past few days I am struggling what to write because of the hectic schedule, I don’t have time to think, and I don’t have the time to play my favorite online games. During the weekend the only time to be alone with books and a cup of coffee but it doesn’t happen because there is something which is needed to be done. But my mind said you need to write. You need to do something follow your passion do not let the busy day stop you from what you want. The process is hard, but if you love what you do, you always find ways, if that your passion you must go for it. The essential philosophy of passion is something you would be willing to sacrifice, and it takes a lot of hard work because if you are not willing to go pain and challenges meaning that is not your passion. According to Francis Kong, “we don’t get a result through an event, to get a good result you need process and process takes time.” I wanna share a story posted by Narinder, a short and a beautiful story about the power of passion. The story is told that a dispassionate young man approached the Greek philosopher Socrates and casually stated, “O great Socrates, I come to you for knowledge.” The philosopher took the young man down to the sea, waded in with him, and then dunked him […]

Yes, I Do and Goodbye

In 2009, she said yes, and I left my world and she became my world. In 2015, she said I do, and she was the only world I knew. However, in 2017, she said goodbye, and kicked me out of her world and left me nowhere. I do not know where to start, I do not know how to start building my world once again. I am like a child crying in the midst of the night longing for my mother’s closeness and love because I am afraid, I am afraid because I am alone. But my family was stronger than my emotion, they showed me the world that full of love and they told me; Don’t worry my dear we are here to carry you because we are stronger than the world who once you’ve known. That the moment I realized that I need to stand up and put my armors back, and this time much stronger inside. There are so many questions about forever, is it really exist? Some say forever is just a word and it appears only in the dictionary, not in real life but for me, I do not know, I do not let my experience define it. Well, that is the mindset of people who experienced pain in their past. Some stayed single because they are frightened to fall again and some stayed the same because for them they have only one love so […]

Do you know what you really need in life?

According to John Mason, “If you look at life the wrong way there is always cause for alarm, what you see depends mainly on what you look for. Most people complain because roses have thorns, instead, be thankful that thorns have roses.” I want to share another story from Brother Bo Sanchez, a very inspiring story that reminds us that life itself is a blessing. Once upon a time, there was a grandmother sitting in a chair on the beach with her grandson and she was doing her cross-stitch looking at her lovely grandson with a shovel, a little shovel with a little hat near the water playing and having fun. The grandmother was just looking at her grandson while doing her cross-stitch, when all of the sudden, a tsunami a tidal wave a giant tidal wave coming rushing towards them. Before she could scream, before she could say my, my grandson the tidal wave crashed onto her little boy and went up. When the water receded back into the sea the little boy was gone, and the grandmother stood up and throw her cross-stitch into the sand looked at the sky and threw her fist unto God and said, Lord, I pray every day, go to mass regularly and I am a good woman! Bring back, my little boy! Lo and behold another giant tidal wave comes rushing towards her and crushes right in front of her and when […]

Just Keep The Faith For The Path Is Already set

I want to share a story from Brother Bo Sanchez during his talks at the feast. A very inspiring story that once reminds us to focus and concentrate on where we good at, not on our weakness.  Once upon a time, there was a man who was applying for a janitor in a big company. The HR manager was interviewing him, after a very, very satisfactory interview the HR manager told the would be a janitor. “You’re hired” Thank you, sir, thank you so much answered by the man. The HR manager said, well, I just want you to fill out this forms, well, just give me your email address so that I will email to you the other documents that you have to sign and tell you when you will report to work as a janitor. The man said, Oh no, ah sir I do not have an email. The HR manager said, you, you do not have an email? A person who does not have an email in this world does not exist, and someone who does not exist cannot be a janitor! I am sorry you are not hired. So the man left that office totally depressed, very discouraged he only had 300 bucks in his pocket. He began to think his 3-year old daughter in his home, hungry waiting for food. He told himself, I need to do something! He thought for something that he knew […]

The Implication on the Quality of LIFE

I grew up in poverty and it was not easy when my mother was pregnant with me, my father leaves us with nothing. When I was five years old, my mother decided to marry so that she has someone to share with and thanks God He has given me a very responsible stepfather. He raises me like his own even we are just poor but we are happy because he taught us to live with rich heart than with rich pocket because according to him what is the use of money if you have no heart yet you are still poor. We are happy but still, it is hard, because if you are 10 years old what you want is to play and play and play but it never happens to me because I need to get up early and help my parents. When I graduated high school another struggle for me, do my parents have money to send me in college? I never ask them I just find ways. I became a working student in my father’s sister I help them in their household chores both of them my stepfather and his sister had helped me in finishing my college degree. However, it was not easy but I keep going I strive hard and harder until I finished college. Nevertheless, graduating in college is not the end rather that is where life truly begins and there is more fighting, […]

LIFE

“Victorious warriors win first and then go to war, while defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win.” – Sun Tzu Life is a war, and we keep fighting every day. After we were born our parents taught us how to fight in preparation in the real world, but unfortunately, some failed to do so they let their children go to war without preparation, and most of them lost their way. Some people were being taught, but the acceptance did not firmly attach to their heart, and they lost along the way, just like planting a tomato tree in concrete it may stand but never last. The battleground is so extremely strong if we have a weak character, determination, discipline or weak foundation in life we are going to collapse because the negative force will crush us down. How warriors become victorious? How people become successful? According to Robert Kiyosaki, “twenty years are enough for a man to become financially free, but if not, you are not living in a wrong country; instead, you are living in the wrong plan. Just like what Benjamin Franklin said, “failing to plan is like planning to fail,” so the right planning is everything. Twenty years of planning in preparation for another twenty years of living is enough to be victorious but if you failed another 20 years of your life will be like a defeated warrior seeking to win. I am […]
