The Incredibles

They say as we grow older we become more sensitive^^

A week ago my grandson Jaja was scolded by his Lolo Turing, his great grandpa…..just because of a “misunderstanding”^^….

It’s because of “The Incredibles”^^….

Lolo Turing can’t hear well anymore because he needed to have a hearing aid already….So when he was asking Jaja…..”My grandson, what are you watching right now?”…..Jaja softly said “The Incredibles”….But Lolo Turing didn’t hear so he asked Jaja again of what movie he was watching….Jaja got irritated and said aloud…”The INCREDIBLES!”….but still Lolo Turing couldn’t hear^^…OMG…he needed a hearing aid already^^…..so he asked again…..”Hey….what are you watching?”…..Jaja had a really big big voice and shouted “THE INCREDIBLES!!!!!”……OMG….his great grandpa really got so angry that there were smoke in his ears and held Jaja and spanked him many times T_T…..”You little brat….you don’t respect me anymore!!!”, he angrily said….and so he hit Jaja and he just stopped when he saw Jaja’s Mom crying already….

I think Lolo Turing’s becoming too sensitive….that’s what we concluded including Jaja’s Mom….

So now everytime great grandpa asks Jaja about anything….the little boy would come close to grandpa’s ears and would tell him anything he was asking….haha^^….Oh my…how much is the hearing aid btw^^….Well we all experience “misunderstanding” most of the time isn’t it?….Well it’s because we give meaning to those we should’t give meaning to….and at times we don’t give meaning to those that we should give meaning to^^…..Oh life^^…..Still I think life is so sweet,wonderful, amazing, incredible^^

Let’s Be Happy…

Oh my….what do we really need to make us happy?….Probably we knew already what could make us happy….but how come there are still so many lonely people in the world…

Yes….maybe a few of us knew but most of us don’t …..We don’t really seek for true happiness…..Why?…. because we are unnatural….We seek for artificial happiness, not those which are lasting…..That is why in the end we lose….how can you win when all you do is do whatever you want even if it isn’t right….Yes….maybe you can deceive others but not yourself…..It is us who create our own unhappiness….by embracing those which are not pleasing to God….

So make ways to accept God’s will….How can we be so stubborn….just because we are so secured…..Right now seek for true happiness…..Let’s add more happy people in the world^^

Sadness….

I just heard a sad news this evening about the passing away of the father of a Filipino actor who just had a comeback in the Philippines because of his ailing father after living in the US for so many years….and now his father had passed away….He had the chance to be with his father on the last days of his life…..I hope the father would rest in peace and his son will be ok….even without him….

We have to let the Father decide on what’s best for us….

Warning Signs…

This was a question from vox.com….How do you know when a relationship has run its course and it’s time to call it quits?

Though it’s really so hard to call it quits…I think it’s when both of you realized that you are not helping each other to grow…you just hurt each other instead of loving each other….and when God is not within or the center of your relationship….Yes….you can save the relationship if you feel in your heart that God wants you to continue loving the other person….if not…it’s goodbye T_T yet  you could still be friends^^

Unite and be good…

It’s been a very tiring week for us…I was able to take a nap in school after we had our lunch…Oh..how I wish it’s Friday already…

I met an old friend yesterday…We talked about our work…How I wish she was with us…She is one good teacher…I admire her courage and dedication in her work…but we don’t belong to the same district anymore….When I was just new in my profession I remember looking up to her and making her as one of my inspirations…Now I miss her….yet we’re still lucky to have Mam Alice with us….she’s our protector too….but it will be much better to have “the craziest” group of people^^ fighting for your rights….Sad to say…the new president of our organization has no bones…no liver…no nothingT_T….Hoping there would be changes for the better in this corrupt system of ours….There are so many teachers leaving the department when there are so many students who need them to stay….”Parang kanya kanya na lang tuloy kami ng langoy!”….

I teach my students now to do what is right…be good even in their own little ways….to have a brighter future…

What makes a person complete…

It’s been quite a while and I haven’t listened to Fr. John Corapi and Fr. Benedict Groeschel of EWTN….Both are charismatic priests and they send messages of hope and love to others…Fr. Corapi speaks with authority coz he has so much passion in him but deep inside he is a softee and his weakness is Jesus Himself….Fr. Benedict is a softee too but he has a “hidden power” that makes people listen to him despite that weak voice of his…there is authority behind that softee image…and that authority comes from God….These men never cease to love Jesus…they are His’ voice…a voice that men should follow….A man becomes wiser when he listens to the Father…he becomes a fool when he doesn’t seek God…I could tell because I feel foolish when I can’t do what God wants me to do….I feel blessed on the other hand if I listen to His voice…Therefore seek to be wise….it’s never too late to be wise….really wise…

Struggles

Everyday is always a struggle….to live in peace, love, and understanding….We meet different people from all walks of life….Some were old acquaintances, some are new, some we just meet at the store, in a bus, in the streets… and how we deal with one another depends on how we struggle each day…Yes, each day we must show love to other people….We must be loving, forgiving, merciful…..At times we are so cruel that we don’t think about how others would feel….We never think about the welfare of others….We hurt others without giving them something they could be proud of in order to change for the better….We just wanted to show how stupid the other person is….We have hardened and inconsiderate hearts….That is why some people are burdened because those who judge them aren’t really after their welfare but only in making them look inferior…This is what’s happening to us teachers who are victims of inconsiderate administrators….It could also happen to those who are weak and couldn’t defend themselves from influential people….

I wish we could follow Jesus’ teachings on understanding and loving our neighbors….

Go Go 70’s coming soon!

I can’t wait to see this Korean movie…I think it will be shown on October this year…Must be an entertaining movie about the 70’s…

What things remind you of the 70’s?…I was just in my elementary years during the 70’s and I remember wearing bell bottomed pants and listening mostly to the music of American bands…like Eagles, Queen, The Jackson Five and others… and our own Pinoy talents…Judas, Sampaguita, Mike Hanopol, Hajie Alejandro, Hotdogs, Apo Hiking Society, VST and Company…We had back then the martial law in the Phils. so to keep us unaware of the political situations we were then entertained mostly by American artists in most of our T.V. shows…Starsky and Hutch, The Streets of San Francisco, Hawaii Five-O, Bionic Woman, Charlie’s Angels and a lot more…and my sister even had a big Leif Garrett and Shaun Cassidy written all over her jeans….We were a bunch of crazy fans of disco music, of pop music and rock and roll…of Bee Gees, and Saturday Night Fever…Well though I knew then that some of us were enjoying ourselves with the music of the 70’s….deep inside we were secretly aware also of what was happening in our country back then…but somehow it helps if we add some spice in our lives isn’t it?

Though I was just a kid then… I think one of the best decades we’ve had was the 70’s^^

The Best Gift Is Love

It was my bestfriend’s bday and I didn’t know it…And instead of greeting her I asked her to help me fix a problem I had that day….She willingly accepted and I was so cruel because we went out at 7 am and I just realized that it was her bday later in the afternoon…..She wasn’t angry though she could have spent her bday with her family the whole day but she went out with me….and never did I see her so upset with me that day!….She’s one in a million!

Wouldn’t you like to know….

If you could ask the person you like three questions, what would they be?
