The New Me: Embracing Change?



Hello everyone! It has been a long time I haven’t stepped on this blogsite. I have an independent blogsite but now I am no longer active on that. I miss Blogjob and made a little visit today. I remember I had a certain blogsite that is all about inspiration and here it is. I am looking for some inspiration so I read few of my entries.

I am thinking when I got my inspiration to wrote those blogs before but maybe my inspiration is that before, I was paid from doing it. Right now, the site is no longer paying, but the owner make our blogs still visible. We can monetize it if we want, so let me continue this journey.

There were lots of stories I want to share, yet, I am thinking if I will share it all. Right now, I need some motivation so I searched some quotes and watched inspirational videos at YouTube. I learned something and that is Motivation is nothing without Discipline.

Right now, I didn’t went for work. It’s been two days now because of sore throat and flu. I am at home and when I am staying at home, mostly I work online and then I became tardy. Tomorrow, I need to get back on my feet. I need to take charge of what I am feeling because mostly in the morning, it will be toxic already with all the question and answer. Even if they know you were not there yesterday, they will still need to know the answer coming from you. They expect you to perform as they do or else they will give you a failing grade. I know what they think about me, that is why I don’t have the motivation to excel. That is wrong anyway. I need to change the attitude and perform even if the people around me believe that I look like a dumb.

I need to apply what I learned about Discipline. I need to create a New Day for me, to start that new habit. For now, even if the job is toxic and I am always unhappy, I need to perform and get the job done. I think I don’t need to excel. I have some other plans. I just don’t want to be a burden there and still wants to be part of the solution. Let us see.

The only problem is that, I am not looking forward. No matter I have the courage, I still have something inside me that is making me unhappy. It is making me demotivated. I know everything will fall into place in the right time, it is just that my emotion is not correlating to what I want to happen. Or maybe I don’t know what I want to happen, lol.

So what is the title is all about. The New Me, Embracing Change and it has a question mark? Yes, it has a question mark because I don’t know exactly what I want. The first thing I learned today is Discipline. Then the second thing is I want to go to work 15 minutes earlier. I want to smile and when the person who stresses me out appears, I will just ignore the feeling and focus of what she wants me to do.  I will do it for a week and let us see if I can stay there. I will change my attitude first, hoping some change will happen and then the title on my next post will be Embracing Change because I Changed. lol

I hate promises now. I don’t accept promises either. Promises are like blowing in the wind for me. I will execute those three I mentioned and see the changes, hoping it will help me.

Slowly but surely. Slowly but surely because I don’t know what I want to happen now…

There is no Easy Job in this world, There are just people who do not Surrender Easily

If you think about it, there is no easy in this world. Everything comes with a struggle and hard work. There are people who feel tired already but still they continue what they are doing because in working they are earning money. Even the lowest earning job has a struggle. Struggle with a combination of learning and earning. There is nothing easy in this world. All results are brought by pain. Every kind of jobs has its own challenge so do not pick on certain jobs to be lighter when you haven’t tried doing it.

The window cleaner of the building. You might think they are just cleaning the windows, but they are cleaning the windows of the building. Buildings are composed of different floors and some have a lot of floors. They will be riding something that will bring them to the peak of the building and it is not easy because the wind is blowing hard there, accidents can occur anytime. How about the window cleaner is afraid of heights, do you think it will be easy for him?

The one who is selling food. The one who has a cart. Do you think pushing a cart and shouting at people what you could offer is easy? How about staying outdoors, in the middle of the hot sun? How about melting your fats because you are under the sun every day? How about on the heavy rain? The only hindrance for them is the weather. If the weather does not cooperate, do you think they will stop selling what they sell? Of course not, they will still sell because if not they will not earn for today.

Have you ever wonder about their situations? These are just two of the million kinds of job that people do. If they surrender from doing it, how can they able to earn. Personally, I give my hats off to them because they are doing a very noble job. People might find it easy because it is brainless, like they used to think but nope, no job is brainless. Every job used every brain for every human being doing the job.

This is my late tribute to all the workers of the world. You are doing a noble job and if you are doing this to your family, I will kneel and give you a red carpet entrance when I see you. Keep it the good work and never surrender. Life is tough and you are tougher that is why you are still alive! I am proud of every worker little or big ones.

Lifting Someone Means Lifting Yourself

How many times you drop and fall? A lot of times maybe? Is there someone who help you to stand up? Is there someone lift you up and stand again? The meaning might be literal, but also, let us consider the deeper meaning of this passage. Lifting someone means lifting yourself. How could someone lift themselves? That is hard. Only another person can able to lift you up unless you have a magic power to lift yourself. On a deeper sense, how could someone lift themselves when they are lifting people?

I will make myself as an example. When one of my friends is having problems, I want to get involved in making them feel calm and focus. I might not be the exact person to help them, but for sure I am the exact person that will calm them so that it helps them to focus. Once they are focused, they can able to find the solution or either, they able to realized what happened and accept it. I, as an observer, will able to see the transition of a person. From being weak because of the problems, my presence or message, perhaps, will help them realized something, will do it and might be solving the problem. That transition is my basis in handling the problem of my own. Whenever I have a problem, I will only remember what my friends did. Of course, I will let myself calm to focus because sometimes no one is doing that to me. If I am alone and have problems, I will just remember what my friends did and solve my problem. In that way, I lift someone up and I lift myself.

Learning from other’s problem and situation means lifting yourself too. You have the perfect example of someone’s experience that will be your basis when you have that kind of problem in the future. Also, once you help someone, it makes you happy internally for sure. In that way, you also lift your confidence that you are worthy of helping people and their appreciation. You lift yourself.

Life does not get Easier, You just get Stronger

Age doesn’t define maturity. Experience is what makes us feel like that. Lots of struggles and challenges in life are part of that experience. If without it, we cannot say how we can define ourselves, if we are weak, average or strong or the most, stronger. Sometimes you are comparing what happened last year to your present years. You said to yourself, “oh my life this year is easier, I never thought it could be easier”. Nope, life doesn’t change. It is a one of the hell struggles and challenges. It will never stop happening. On the other side, you only feel it lighter this year because you got stronger. You get adjusted to the problems. You become open-minded. You become more forgiving and you try to learn from the mistakes of yourself and others. You take note of the problems of the past and you promised yourself it will never happen again. That is why at present, you are doing your best to improve your life despite experiencing challenges.

Your maturity enters that. The maturity of a person comes from experiences because they value the lesson it gives to them and they use that lesson to guide them at present problems. It also leads them to be open-minded that everyone are experiencing problems and we have different levels of problems every day, what we need to do is to face it and accept the challenge. Every problem makes us a better person. It makes us to knowing ourselves more. To know our limits and capability. To know who are our real friends, those who will stay through thick and thin. To know that there are things that we find difficult at first but we don’t realized that there are just a barrier in front that we need to break and everything will be smooth sailing. We just need to act on the problem, not matter how hard we know we will be facing and what kind of pressure it will lead too.

YOU are Your Biggest Obstacle

Have you ever wonder why your plans fail? Have you ever wonder why you haven’t met any goals? Is there a problem that avoiding that to happen, or there is something about your attitude that delays everything? For sure you are investigating on that matter, but make sure you include yourself from the reason. Why do I come up with the title? What does your attitude something to do with making your dreams come true?

These are the kind of attitude the prolong your agony in making things happen and change your life.

  1. You Get Envy Easily – you only get envy when you know some of your friends are achieving something and you are not even in the middle of yours. You wonder how they get there. You learned that there are surrounded with people who help them and you don’t have anyone to side you. You start to get envy. Feeling that way will delay you. For sure you will get disappointment. You will lose a day doing your goals and you are not likely to even continuing it. The right thing to do, focus on what you are good at and believe that everyone has unique way on handling themselves.
  2. It is easy for you to feel sorry for yourself – supposed you get envy, the next feeling you will have is to feel sorry for yourself, for you know you are alone in the battle since no one is there to support you. You will feel pity and feel small, then stop. All you need to do is to stop feel sorry for yourself. Everyday is another chance for everyone to correct their mistakes. You only need to appreciate that you still have a chance to redo everything.
  3. You get affected by negativity easily – if bad things keeps on happening, then there is a big chances you will feel negative about life. That is normal. However, everyone is telling, Think Positive or do not think at all. Once negativity strike, you are doom.
  4. You are unsure of what you really want – have you asked yourself if what your goals are those you really need? Is that the kind of thing that makes you die when you do not get it? If you are unsure of your goals, the plans are unsure also. The execution will fail because you will always have this second thoughts. Re assess your goal, then your plans. Make it close to reality.
  5. You worry too much – biggest of the lot of things that happens to you in the past, committing the same mistakes, same goals different plans but always fails, these will surely makes you worry too much. A lot of people will tell you, worrying about the things that is not yet happening is useless, (though I cannot deny that worrying works for me when it comes to having options when it comes to planning) so better save your energy for resting.
  6. You believe in yourself less – do you know that despite that you are alone in making your dreams come true, you will still able to achieve it. You only need to believe in yourself. You need to be hungry of success so that you will do everything to eat it.
  7. You are focus on the success of others, because you thought it will inspire you – if you are a jealous/envy type, it will not work on you. You will tend not to be open-minded. Focus on yourself. If you learned someone became successful, congratulate them, be happy for them,the next thing is you. You must be the next big thing. Get back to focus on yourself.

There are lots to mention. By start assessing yourself, you will change your attitude towards your success. I hope you solves your issue before having goals.

The True Meaning of Help

The true meaning of help varies with people. It depends on the way they experienced the help and being open-minded with the people who had helped them and for those who ignored them. One of the reason why giving help became one of the miracle in this world is that there are people who needs big help but they had chosen to help other people. They are helping themselves in that situation according to them. Helping in a way the weight of the problem lessen because they are opening their minds that helping people don’t have a limit anymore. You can help even if you need help too. The heaviness inside you will lighten up a bit because you have proven that if you can save other’s problem, you are capable of solving yours. You will start to value yourself and the things that you can do to anyone. You start to believe in yourself. You start to feel inspired. In this way, you are very ready and tough enough to face your own problem, until you solved it. This is how God is helping us. He is giving us assignment. He is changing our negativity to positivity. He wants us to feel our worth. He wants us to acknowledge our capability because we can do what is impossible if we really want to.

There is something that will happen to you when you help without waiting something in return. Although it is hard to do, but it is true. I tried it many times. I am a sensitive person and I get irritated easily, but with helping people, it makes me widen my perspective, makes me believe in life again, and makes me trust people and myself. Sometimes you will know I am losing hope one day, but then after a day, I have full courage to face life again because I realized my worth and the reason why I still exists. If you can help, help.

Difficult Situation Doesn’t Stop me From Helping People

Yesterday, I went out. I was looking for a landline phone in the store. Then while going home, I saw one old lady looking for something. She looks exhausted. I really want to ignore her because I was feeling irritated about my problem, however, I can’t resists looking at her face. She was very worried. I passed her by. I overheard her saying “where did you go, oh no” and she was in an awkward position like she wants to walk fast or run. I looked back at her and observed her walk. I know that when I fail to helped her, her body will just drop down the ground. I can’t take it, for sure my conscience will never stop to bother me. I followed her. I overheard she was crying. I rushed near her and asked her what is happening. She was grasping for breathe and she told me she was looking for her puppy. She was holding the leash and her puppy run away while she was buying something. I asked her what time does her puppy got escape and she told me in less than 30 minutes.

I remember while I was trying to contact a diagnostic center on the landline, I saw a puppy running away. It was running fast. I told the old lady to just sit down and I will look at her dog. She sat and nod at me, she was very exhausted. I was praying while running to look for the puppy. I kept on praying that I will able to see it because the lady for sure will going to cry. I know how it feels so I wish not to happen to her. She also remind me of my mother so I told myself, I will do my best to help her. In less than 25 minutes, I able to see a puppy under a car. It looks very scared from the bikes that was coming everywhere. I know that it is the puppy so I kept on calling it. Suddenly, the lady was there and she called the name of the puppy, “Riri”. I called her Riri and she went out and lick my hands. Oh my, she is the puppy. I carried her and gave her to the old lady. The old lady cried and she never stop thanking me. I told her that is okay and I hope Riri will never escape again. Riri is small size for a puppy. I don’t know her breed, though.

As I was walking going home, I realized I did not get out of the house because I need to contact the diagnostic centers, but because I have an assignment to do. That is what God is doing, he is using you as an intrument to help people. For that reason, if you know you can able to help, help.

It Doesn’t Matter if you Think you are Ugly, What Matter is there is Someone who Accepts You as YOU

A good friend send me a text message inviting me on her wedding. She wants me to sing. Her wedding is on September, the month of my birthday. I don’t remember her when I received her message. I even asked her who she was and said she is… leave the name to me, let’s name her Pau. I haven’t ask her that I will share her story in my blogs. I will not mention her real name but I will be sharing her good news. I really tried to recall who is Pau and why on earth she knows my number. Then I remember, she was one of my friend that I got closed with during the time we were support Julielmo Loveteam. After two hours, I gave her my another reply and I said sorry I hardly remember her but I remember her now! I told her that I am saving my mobile load and she understands. She kept on sending me messages telling me her love story. I cannot help but smile because I now recall exactly how she looks like.

Nope, she is not ugly. She is my friend so I need to be biased, lol. Yet, she is not ugly. She is fat, fair in complexion but she is not ugly. She maybe cute but her face is full of fluffiness, but she is so beautiful when she smile. Her beauty starts where her eyes starts to smile and she is nice so she is a real beauty to me. She said that she met her soon-to-be-hubby during the time she was volunteering for Tacloban. She even shared that she failed to lose weight so I should expect to see her with the same size. Her fiancee is not fat though. He is with normal size of a man and very manly. The looks resembles big similarities with Dingdong….. Avanzado. I was laughing that she said she don’t know what happened, but all she knows is that she did not put any love potion in his foods. One day she just woke up seeing her boyfriend offering a ring and kneeling at her. I was like HOMAYGAD!! while reading her text message. Like Really??? Does he have a brother?

Moving forward, I am happy for her. She must done something good that she deserves that man. Maybe that man really doesn’t look on a person’s external looks but on what is inside them. She is a very loving, sincere and loyal individual. I know her fiancee saw it that is why he wants her for the rest of his life. I am so jealous!!! The girl who always says she is ugly and will never have a boyfriend is now getting married. She deserved it. I am so happy!! She is my good news today.

It doesn’t matter if you think you are ugly, what matter is there is someone who accepts you as you.

 

It’s The Climb!!

Most of my friends hate Miley Cyrus, much more when she did the Wrecking Ball and We Can’t Stop Music Videos. I saw both of the videos and I can see is a person who was troubled and shaken. Maybe I have my own meaning of troubled and shaken because when I say it, it means they have something inside them that they want to let others know by their action alone. They are not comfortable to say it with words, just watch how they act and you know they are going through. Getting back to Miley, whenever I am hearing my friends bashing her, I always think of the song The Climb. Then I will say, I will not bash her because she made the song The Climb.

One of the great things that Miley Cyrus contributed with music and the lives of others is singing this song and having it inside her albums. I love this song. I am listening to it right now. This song is the one that exactly describe what happens to our lives. Life is an uphill battle but everyone deserves a good life. It is the climb that matters. It is your journey to success despite the struggles. There will be stones that will be thrown at you, you will be hit and bleeds, but you will learn to put betadine and clean it and cover it with gauze pads, lol.

To be serious, there will be a lot of stones will be thrown at you and you will get hit. When you are lining up, there will be lots of shoves and push so that you will be out of the line, but you will get back on track. You will never stop. That is my own insights about this song. This is what Miley Cyrus is helping me now.

Let me share this with you if you are not aware of the song.

Everyone started from Zero

No one said that life should be with bed of roses. It might be but full of thorns. Life is as good as the red color of roses but the thorns makes it difficult to handle. You must be very careful of handling it or you might feel pain and bleeding. Life is exactly as it is.

In life, everyone started from zero. I only got this topic by listening to the song Loser Like Me performed by Glee cast. No matter how you try, you will lead to difficulty and rejection. Not only that you make mistakes, you will be rejected by people around you too. They will say how loser you are for not reaching your goal and for believing that someday you will be successful.

Everyone started from zero in learning how to live their life. Sometimes you achieved something leading you to believing that you will be reaching another one, but hey, life is not like that. You will be forever making mistakes and learning from it. You always starts from zero. One day you feel you all have the faith and believe in yourself, then the next day you are losing it, they you start again, having the same faith and believe in yourself. That is how it works, with all honesty.

Starting from zero means you learned something and you will now be careful. You started to realized you made mistakes, you will try to remember it. You started to accept that you did not give your best, so you will give your bests. It will just cycled again. It will be never ending. It always comes back to zero. The only thing that improves on you will be your will power. It should get bigger, your rates should increased so that no matter how many rejection and failed results, your confidence will get better. You learn to shrug it off and say to yourself, I can’t still do this, I did it before, I can do it again.
