Unforgettable Moment

We all have some moments that we cherished in our lives…

This one really touched me so deeply…It was when I had to take an examination and I had to leave at early dawn…My parents woke up earlier than I and even prepared breakfast for me…The three of us shared an early meal then while my siblings were all asleep and when it was time for me to leave (I had to walk several blocks to my classmates house) they didn’t take their eyes off me until I reached my destination…at early dawn I could see them looking at me from a distance..standing near our gate…and waved  at me as I turn my back once in a while to see if they’re still looking at me…and yes they did…

It was still dark then but I felt like all the lights in the world were lighted because I felt the love they had for me…

What a day!

I went to my doctor this morning for our yearly check up….I had a really funny experience while I was at the X-ray room….So I went inside and the attendant who is a girl by the way told me to change my “outfit”(I thought there’s no need to change coz I used to just have my dress on then turn my back and then snap)…..But the attendant told me to get inside a room where we could get the outfits…I was in a hurry coz I knew there were many patients waiting outside so I had to make it fast….She just said wear the apron…Oh gosh  my glasses got in the way so I took it out…I wasn’t reading what’s in the outfit so I just wore the one which hung on the left side…Then I opened the door and the attendant had a big smile on her face…”OMG…How could you Mam?”….”What did I do?”…”Why did you wear my outfit….that’s private?”….so I said….”OMG….Haha…No problem…stay there pls. and I’ll have your x-ray^^;”….At least I made her laugh coz I could see that she’s so serious at that time…

Oh what a day….I had my other med tests as well…I hope my creatinine would be ok?…I’m still waiting for the results…I’ve been really careful with what I eat lately so I think it was just ok^^;

Pressures

We do experience lots of pressures in our lives….When it happens I always think about my friend’s reminder “to act with grace under pressure not pressure under grace”…hehe…

So what are some of those pressures?…Whenever I go to school there was this man who always ask me some unforgivable questions like…”Mam,did you get married already?”…Ofcourse he knows I haven’t…But I have to tell him politely….”No I haven’t”…”You should already…you know,  it’s better to have someone who would take care of you”…Well, thank God he didn’t say you’re getting old already hehe..

The next day…here we go again…the same man…”Mam, did you get married already?”…Oh my…that was his question a day before… gosh…as if I could marry for only a day!….That man really has given me lots of pressure huh!

Well I think it’s just up to the person if she will be happy or not…single or married…As for me, I enjoy being single right now…I think we should all find ways to make our lives better no matter what status we’re in…Though a co-teacher would always tease me…”Please follow this motto…Don’t die a virgin!”….Gosh! …I think pressures will never leave us in this world…

Loneliness

I’m kinda lonely today my friends..I don’t know why..So I decided to write something about loneliness…

I know I don’t have anything to worry about…God has always been good to us…What could make me feel so sad today?….I’d like to believe that I should be happy….but today I wasn’t feeling well…What is this I’m feeling right now?

Maybe it happens….Like there is this feeling of guilt inside of me that I was trying to deny or there are some things I should have done but I did not…or maybe I just wanted everything to be perfect for myself but they aren’t…Maybe these things happen to all of us don’t they?…

They say loneliness are much deeper than happiness…in a sense that feelings of happiness don’t last long but when you feel the opposite they would haunt you for a long time…

What is happening to me?…Maybe it’s just a matter of attitude..If we take things too seriously..loneliness starts to haunt us ..but if we don’t everything will just be fine..

If you happen to read this post..don’t be sad like me ok?….Sometimes we need to humble ourselves….Forget those ambitions and wants that we’ve lost….Forget that pride coz it makes you not to forget and forgive…..Embrace our defeats and weaknesses to be able to satisfy ourselves….

Crushed

Opening of classes will be next month already in the Phils….Some students I know are excited to be back to school again…Even teachers are coz they they will be working again with young people who usually are fun to be with inspite of their being so aggressive and stubborn at times…but then they could also break their teachers’ hearts…

There were times when I was thinking of what if I had chosen another job instead of being a teacher coz at times kids could really make you lose your temper, but then when I think of my role as a teacher in molding the values of the youth, I would tell myself, that would be enough not to change my mind…Just think of dealing with many students with different personalities…,definitely,is not an easy task..There were even times when some students would open up to you and tell you all of their heartaches, and you try to help them, but then you get so frustrated coz some parents would not even bother to help their children solve their problems …I even had a student who once said to me ” I wanted to die already ” and cried in front of me…Who wouldn’t be crushed with that kind of a statement?…Then you talked to the parent and the answer you get was…” If you want to adopt my son then go…adopt him so that I won’t have problems anymore.”…I wanted to clean my ears to make sure what I heard was true…But that was what I heard…

I hope this coming shool year I won’t be hearing those haunting statements again…coz they really are so painful..really painful…

A Great Sunday


Thank God….I thought rains had to stop two days from now but instead we have a bright Sunny Sunday today…Thanks to the weather’s unpredictability….

Now I could hear my neighbors playing basketball….I could see the “potpot” man selling pandesal….I could see our neighbor mechanic fixing his sarao….It was back to normal afterall….

We’ve had experienced so many calamities all over the world and some are truly devastating..Some of us are lucky to have been given chances of continuing our lives in this world, though some have been called to rest,so for the living let us continue to make this world a wonderful place to live in….

There’s one secret that would make our lives better than you could ever imagine….Pray…pray always and show gratitude to the Father with all your heart and soul…

Wishes

It’s been raining here in Angeles City since yesterday..Weather news says there’s a storm coming to us this evening..Hope it won’t be as strong as the one that hit Manila two years ago…

I had to postpone some appointments too coz it’s still raining until now…Maybe by Tuesday it will be a fine day already…

Next week, we’ll be praparing for enrolment too for classes will start by June all over the Phils…..Then we shall have the Brigada Escuela wherein parents and teachers work as volunteers together for our schools cleanliness and beautification …It will be a busy month for us now since we will start classes again by the first week of June…

Hope it will be just as last school year that I had a good working relationship with my co- teachers and my boss…. though at times we do have some differences in opinions I still love working with them…But I had to be more caring and more loving with my boss because yesterday a co-teacher had to point me to the bulletin board just to make me remember my boss’ birthday…Oh it was so embarrasing…I didn’t realize that it was her bday coz I thought she just called us yesterday for a faculty meeting…Anyway there were 4 of us who forgot it but then I had wished I had been more sensitive when it comes to those things…

Oh rains had stopped for a while…..but then it will continue again maybe until Monday……but on Tuesday I wish it will be a fine day again…

agony from an empty stomach…

In some countries Rugby is a popular sport yet it also means something else and its popularity is used in a different way. Like in a poor country like the Philippines, Rugby which is supposed to be used as a solvent and a glue in manufacturing shoes, bags, etc, is used instead as a drug (by sniffing or inhaling it repeatedly) to become high and forget about the agonizing hunger of some of our impoverished, neglected children roaming around our very own streets.

Its been a lingering problem and at least more than a million Filipino children or teens have been hooked by it. The government have done measures to control the problem with the help of some gov’t agencies like the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency and the Department of Social Welfare and Development but still its like a plague that has scattered all over the country.

I’m really not surprised if there are so many Filipinos who get hungry each day..not that we are indolent or lazy as foreigners might think..The average wage of a Filipino worker esp laborers for a day is just enough to buy a decent breakfast for the family..Prices continue to rise and the wages of workers don’t. I know how these workers feel and their way of living because we happen to teach in a public school..Many of our Kababayans have chosen to leave the country for greener pastures..Why..so that they ‘ll be able to send their children to shool..No matter how hard we try, a skilled laborer cannot sustain the basic needs of his family alone..what more his education, medicine, shelter, clothing? How long will these situations last?..I am not surprised if a poor child would sniff rugby because he can’t fight the agony of having an empty stomach..

Respect Yourself

Respect Yourself

I think it’s quite difficult to convince other people to believe in you if you yourself find it hard to respect yourself and other people.

Some people think that when they have it all ….power, intelligence, money, career, beauty, they already deserve respect from others.

No,…. it’s not just because you have lots of friends, you’ve given yourself a name, you’ve traveled around the world, you’ve had so many experiences in life, you’ve got an expensive car, a mansion……N o…… You are absolutely wrong….Those are not the requirements in gaining true respect and love from other people.

You should learn to love and truly accept others regardless of their status in life, race, religion, upbringing, and education…

Once I read a story of how a celebrity would love to make it big in Hollywood….he is a Korean….

Some people would laugh at his English I may say while trying to learn the language. …I was just wondering why would you laugh at someone who is trying hard to make himself better to be understood and learn a certain language.

There are some people who glorify themselves just because they knew more or are better speakers or writers, or well educated than others…..If that Korean would say “All you English speaking people speak in Korean or Chinese instead of English does he have the right to do so?”

Some people are educated but are not cultured and some are not educated yet cultured…. Some people do to others the things they don’t want to be done upon them by others….An old saying from Confucius to Jesus Christ yet most people had not taken it to their hearts and are disrespectful towards their neighbors.

My friends how can you respect others if you do not know how to love and follow the golden rule.?
