    Over a decade ago, I created a list of soft rules or things I wanted to live by. I wanted the list to be a guideline for how I’d deal with life, people, and experiences. Anyway, I checked out my old blog from 2009 and found the list. I updated it, so it will be more applicable to where my life is currently at. Here it goes: 1. If you want to understand a person, do not listen to what…

    I’ve had a full day today, a really good day spent with the greatest friends any person can have. People have often said that to have one friend for life is already a blessing. Well, consider me super blessed because I don’t just have one really great friend, I have several. I spent lunch until the late afternoon hours with my ACE team friends. They are the bestest (if there ever was a word) people in the world. Everytime I…

    When I was younger, all I’ve ever wanted to do was write. I wanted to be a writer. I’m good at it. Not to brag or anything. I just know, writing is what I’m good at. And I pursued it. For a while. Until life happened. Before long, so many other things became more important. Work. Money. Reality. I lost track. I lost my gift. I lost my passion. I slowly became a robot. All work. A little play. A…

    Sometimes, we reach a point where everything is just how we want things to be. When you’re at this point, be thankful. Celebrate every moment. Live every day. Glorify the Lord in the best way you know how. Say your prayers of thanks. These moments won’t always last. But there is always something greater. It is not true what they say that when you’re already there, there is no other way to go but down. The truth is, when you…

  • You Can Shoot Me Down

    When you ask a person to lead, supervise or manage, you are actually asking a lot from that person. I don’t think most people realize that when someone becomes a supervisor or a leader of sorts, that person is not getting a “promotion” or a higher status symbol. On the contrary, that person is asked to give more of himself, to think of everybody when everybody else only need to think about their own. When a higher-up screws up, everybody…

    I have to admit it. I am a brat. When I want something, I want it right away. If I don’t get what I want, a storm breaks. Last night, my latest “want” was pizza. I did not eat dinner on a birthday celebration we were invited to because I only had one thing in mind: pizza. If it wasn’t pizza, I wasn’t going to eat it. I’ve craved for pizza since Saturday. The thought of eating freshly made Calda’s…

    I know I’ve said I don’t believe in resolutions and don’t make any, so I am not calling this a resolution. This next thing I’m blogging about is more like something I’d want to try this year. For 2013, I will try to do my best to make sure that my weekends remain “Weekends” and not extensions of “weekdays” and unfinished work that I leave off to finish during my free hours. Last year, I sacrificed a lot of weekends…

    He and I are complete opposites of each other. He likes to blend in; I like to stand out. He likes to go unnoticed; I enjoy a dramatic entrance. He prefers to fade in the background; I aim to get the spotlight. He likes to shut up; I love to talk. He likes to be right all the time; I enjoy giving corrections. It is a messy thing, him and I. However, we do have our moments. Sometimes, there are…

    This post is a day late. My late stepmother’s birthday was yesterday. However, as always, I have been caught up in work and other personal stuff, so I wasn’t able to stop and write about something. She was a fun person. She wasn’t the usual stepmother character that used to be portrayed in fiction where she had imaginary horns and always made things difficult. In fact, she was kind and nice to me. She did not treat me like a…
