Inspiration

I'd like to share something that was sent to me by Jackie today:

Whenever we experience something difficult in our personal life, we are tempted to blame God. But we are the ones in the wrong, not God. Blaming God is evidence that we are refusing to let go of some disobedience somewhere in our lives. But as soon as we let go, everything becomes as clear as daylight to us. As long as we try to serve two masters, ourselves and God, there will be difficulties combined with doubt and confusion. Our attitude must be one of complete reliance on God. Once we get to that point, there is nothing easier than living the life of a saint. We encounter difficulties when we try to usurp the authority of the Holy Spirit for our own purposes.
God’s mark of approval, whenever you obey Him, is peace. He sends an immeasurable, deep peace; not a natural peace, “as the world gives,” but the peace of Jesus. Whenever peace does not come, wait until it does, or seek to find out why it is not coming. If you are acting on your own impulse, or out of a sense of the heroic, to be seen by others, the peace of Jesus will not exhibit itself. This shows no unity with God or confidence in Him. The spirit of simplicity, clarity, and unity is born through the Holy Spirit, not through your decisions. God counters our self-willed decisions with an appeal for simplicity and unity.
My questions arise whenever I cease to obey. When I do obey God, problems come, not between me and God, but as a means to keep my mind examining with amazement the revealed truth of God. But any problem that comes between God and myself is the result of disobedience. Any problem that comes while I obey God (and there will be many), increases my overjoyed delight, because I know that my Father knows and cares, and I can watch and anticipate how He will unravel my problems.

Nice isn't it? Actually, this explains what I have been doing for months. Letting go of what this human world has to offer and holding on to God's promise that He has plans for me. He knows what I am meant for and all I have to do is trust Him. I may have gone through pain, sorrow, challenges but hey, as long as He is with me, I will remain strong. 


P.S.

Me, Jackie, Chee, Kate and El have decided to attend a Bible Study soon. Yes, we will do this because we want to have stronger faith in God and we want to continue learning and understanding his ways. :)

Blessing!

I just got back to work today.  I got sick yesterday because of being caught up in the rain during the storm.  I got a bad cold, headache and mild cough. Anyway, I got in today, the usual time, 7:30AM. Then I received an email from Marco regarding a change in the schedule of his meeting with one of our candidates. I was looking at his calendar when the word “offered” was sighted. I checked… and I was surprised to see that it was the candidate I brought in! Yay!

Placement. Yes. After few months of working hard and finding suitable people for roles that we are working on, we finally found the perfect match for the perfect position with the perfect employer. It’s all about timing and really, I thought this candidate won’t be placed since it took us months to work on this! I am so glad that I got to speak to her and she met with one of my bosses and was endorsed by another boss of mine. This is what I call TEAM WORK. TEAM EFFORT. The 3 of us worked really hard for this and it feels like after the stress, sleepless nights, early morning workloads,  everything…. It was all paid off. I guess this placement meant a lot to me considering that this is just my 2nd placement in the industry since I started last February in the Fashion and Luxury Industry. The 2nd placement that I am a “solid” part of.

I am looking forward to more placements. I am working hard on this. I am trying my best to bring in the top candidates that I can and I don’t care if I’m spending 11 hours in the office. It doesn’t matter if I start working from 7:30 or 8AM until 6PM. This is what I really want to do. This is my life. My Bread and Butter . My Love. My Destiny and everything that comes with it. It’s my career. I am challenging myself to be a more productive employee and no, I’m not killing myself. I’m just working hard and as expected, I will party hard or play hard after.

WOW! Amazing Number Of Views!



Thanks to all my readers! Never expected my blog to hit views this high! :) Cheers everyone! :)

By Chance

Hi
Girl, you just caught my eye
thought I should give it a try
and get your name and your number
go grab some lunch and eat some cucumbers

WHY, DID I SAY THAT?
I don't know why.
But you're smilin' and it's something' I like
on your face, yeah it suits you
Girl, we connect like we have bluetooth

I don't know why
I'm drawn to you
Could you be the other one so we'd equal two?
And this is all based on a lucky chance
that you would rather add than subtract

You and I
could be like Sonny and Cher
honey and bears
You and I
could be like Aladdin and Jasmine
lets make it happen

La La's

Hey
How've you been?
I know that it's been awhile.
Are you tired 'cause you've been on my mind
runnin' thousand and thousands of miles
Sorry, I know that line's outta style
but you
{ From: http://www.elyrics.net/read/j/j.r.a.-lyrics/you-and-i-lyrics.html }
you look so beautiful on that starry night
loving the way the moonlight catches your eyes and your
smile
I'm captivated
your beauty is timeless never outdated

I don't know why
I'm drawn to you
Could you be the other one so we'd equal two?
and this is all based on a lucky chance
that you would rather add than subtract

You and I
could be like Sonny and Cher
Honey and bears
you and i could be like Aladdin and Jasmine lets make
it happen


Babe
It's been 5 years since that special day
when I asked you on our first date
I guess it's safe to say

You and I
are better than Sonny and Cher
Honey and bears
You and I
Are better than Aladdin and Jasmine
We've made it happen

lalalalalala

Let me say
You look so beautiful on our wedding day

Thank You

You won't be able to read this message. But like any other "special" people that I write unread letters to, let me just write yours here. Years from now, by chance, you might be able to read this.

Dear You,

First of all, I wanted to say Thank You. Thank you for just being the usual you. You surprise me every now and then. You show me genuine care and respect which is something I haven't found elsewhere. We have different views on things and that could be the reason why we haven't committed just yet. But what's good about it is we do not turn our backs from each other. We talk every once in a while about certain things and talking to you makes my day a lot different than my other days when I had to deal with difficult people. You just know when to listen and you give me the most matured advice. You are the peace and serenity that I've been looking for. It's like attending yoga when I start to forget what this human world is about and just focus on your presence. We've been like this for more than a year now and nothing has changed. This is the consistency that's been hard to find. And yes, we wander around the world, in different places and meet different faces but when we need each other, we both know... We've got each other's back. I won't say I love you because those words mean so much to me that I can't just let it out without knowing if we're on the right track or not. But let me just say that I care... So much. I don't ever want to see you sad or hurt. No matter where this journey takes us, keep in mind that I'm here... Always.

Someone Said Hi :)

Imagine, a guy became rude to me. I didn't care and now a kind guy ( the guy who's always been so kind to me before and after we dated ) said hi.. Sent me a message asking how my family and I are because he heard about the storm. Early in the morning, something good happened. Nice things sure happen to nice people. I'm glad I am nice. :)

My Favorite Movie Lines

Gigi: I may dissect each little thing and put myself out there so much but at least that means that I still care. Oh! You've think you won because women are expendable to you. You may not get hurt or make an ass of yourself that way but you don't fall in love that way either. You have not won. You're alone. I may do a lot of stupid shit but I'm still a lot closer to love than you are. -He's Just Not That into You

Gigi: Girls are taught a lot of stuff growing up. If a guy punches you he likes you. Never try to trim your own bangs and someday you will meet a wonderful guy and get your very own happy ending. Every movie we see, Every story we're told implores us to wait for it, the third act twist, the unexpected declaration of love, the exception to the rule. But sometimes we're so focused on finding our happy ending we don't learn how to read the signs. How to tell from the ones who want us and the ones who don't, the ones who will stay and the ones who will leave. And maybe a happy ending doesn't include a guy, maybe... it's you, on your own, picking up the pieces and starting over, freeing yourself up for something better in the future. Maybe the happy ending is... just... moving on. Or maybe the happy ending is this, knowing after all the unreturned phone calls, broken-hearts, through the blunders and misread signals, through all the pain and embarrassment you never gave up hope. - He's Just Not That Into You

Jamie: I'm just gonna shut myself down emotionally like George Clooney - Friends With Benefits


All these lines made an impact. I just love watching great movies :)

Storm

Wind is blowing hard and it's raining cats and dogs outside. But definitely, we are all sure that there will come a point when this will stop. Life is just like this. Experience the worst of experiences. Get mad, be sad. But at the end of the day, you know that the worst feeling will be over because it's not always a stormy day in your life. Sun will shine, you can start anew and things will be better. :)

Life Changing

Happy Monday!

Well, actually I was supposed to have a happy Monday. But later on... I ended up realizing that it wasn't that happy at all. But hey, the day is not yet over. In fact, I still have few hours left to make this day wonderful.

Today is LIFE CHANGING. Why did I say so? It's because I realized that there are really people, like real people reading my blog. Making comments, getting affected and relating to my posts. Thank you. You made me realize that this blog can change lives. Negative or Positive feedback, it doesn't matter. As long as it has affected you or somewhat made you think, it makes me believe that I am an effective writer and that I was able to send my message well.

The purpose of the blog. This blog is intended to be an outlet of my emotions and imaginations. Whatever I have written here are the product of my everyday life. My struggles, my happiness, my success stories, my dreams, the impossible things I want to make into reality. IT IS ALL HERE. Freedom of speech. This is my world. Whether or not you believe it existed, it doesn't matter. But one request, please.... DO NOT JUDGE ME FOR WHAT I HAVE WRITTEN HERE. Simply because this blog doesn't totally define me as a person. This just the tip of the iceberg. Writing something delusional doesn't mean you are delusional. Writing something impossible or non-existent doesn't mean it won't ever exist. Writing something in this blog doesn't mean it always has to mean something to someone. I am talking to you. Whoever is reading this. Have an open mind. Put into thinking why so many people has blogs or diaries. It's the same as why some people decided to be writers and create the best novels you have ever read. Yes, that is the purpose of this blog. This exists to inspire. Not to ruin lives. Not to manipulate feelings. Not to ask for attention. It exists for the purpose that you or me might be needing this at some point in time just because we relate on experiences or thoughts.

People who judge you are the ones who doesn't know a single thing about you. Today marks the nth time I have been judged UNFAIRLY. If I like you, I like you. But it doesn't mean relationships. It doesn't mean you have to be with me or I have to be with you. I am trying my best to be nice, friendly and approachable and one thing about me, I DON'T GET IN RELATIONSHIPS WITH FRIENDS. So if I say you are my friend, then you are my friend. End of story. Sometimes, people misinterpret my actions into something else and I'm sorry for that. It's just me. If you want an answer, ask me. I will tell you the truth because I don't like to keep people guessing. But if you assumed something else, that's where the problem will arise. It won't hurt to ask, really. But just so you know, I'm not that rude to myself to like or want someone and keep it to myself. I will tell you if I like you. Try to ask my friends. Try to ask the people that I grew up with.

I am not sad or angry. I am just being blunt. I am expressing my thoughts so again, do not judge me. The world is a happy place and there are a lot of happy people that I should get to know out there. People who won't judge or assume. People who would talk to me and be touched by my life or my experiences. Yes, there are a lot. And this blog beats traveling. One entry can conquer the world. Believe me.

ILML.

Strange

I wanted to understand things. I wanted to know what is going on. The past two days went really bad that I don't know if things will ever be the same again. I thought he and I are friends. I trusted that. I trusted the fact that we respect each other and we will never do anything that will harm each other. I have been friends with so many people and I can say that my friendships last. I have always been blunt, transparent, honest with everything regardless if it might hurt my friend sometimes because I want them to be the same with me. But yesterday, I think I lost a friend. Someone who I have so much in common with. It's depressing that what ruined the friendship was clearly immaturity: teasing, getting pissed off and not talking. It had always been my rule to talk about things specially in situations like this. I reached out regardless if my pride was at stake. Just because, I want to fix things. I don't get mad easily and it's something that I am sure of so when he said something about me, I got upset but not to the point that I won't talk to him. I really don't know. It's sad. It's unfair and it's not right. But what can I do? If he wants to walk away from the friendship and if he wants to be out of my life, then so be it. I'm not the type of friend who would stop a friend from walking away. But at least help me understand what happened. Just that and I'll be ok.

Serenity Prayer

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.
Amen.

A Note

In the meantime, this Peter Pan is still waiting on Wendy to take my hand and come fly with me…. All you need is a little bit of trust and some pixie dust.

Cause as you can see… even Peter will grow up for that right girl. ;)
