Panahon ng Pangungutya

Ang dami-daming tao sa mundo, at ang dami daming pwedeng gawin sa mundo. Ngunit dahil sa kahirapan at kaingitan, ay madami din namang nalululong sa chismis at mga gawain paninira ng kapwa.

Isa sa mga ayaw ko ay ang magsabi ng bagay na alam nating ikasisira ng iba. Madaming dahilan kung bakit nagagawa ng tao ‘to. Pwedeng inggit o para lang makaganti dahil sa ugaling naipakita o ipinakita ng taong sinisiraan nila. Ngunit tama ba talagang gawin natin ito? Tama bang siraan at maging sanhi ng pagbagsak ng taong iyon ang mga hindi magandang lumalabas sa bibig natin?

Minsan, sobrang nagiging makasarili tayo na okay lang na bumagsak ang ibang tao, basta tayo hindi. Ugali iyan ng karamihan. Mas magandang makitang bumagsak sa kinakatayuan ang isang taong mataas ang lipad kaysa magtrabaho para mapasa sa paglipad. Ika nga ni Miss Universe 2015, Pia Wurtzbach, sa kanyang interview kay Boy Abunda, “it’s so easy to watch a queen fall“. Pero tama ba talaga ito? Tama nga ba na maging ugali ito ng madaming tao?

Madalas akong tumingin at maglibot sa Facebook dahil wala rin naman akong magawa minsan. Pero isang gabi, nagbasa ako ng comment box sa isang news page at nakita ko ang punong-puno ng puna kay Maxine Medina galing sa mga kapwa ko Pilipino. Hindi ako fan ng Miss Universe, and never have I watched the entire show pero tama bang pulaan ang babaeng lalaban para sa Pilipinas? Sa sobrang daming pwede gawin o sabihin, puro mga mali pa ng tao ang nakikita ng lahat. Alam kong ugali na ito (matagal na) ng madaming tao ngunit hindi ko matanggap na instead of supporting Maxine, people are criticising her appearance and her grammar. Minsan sa sobrang galing natin tumingin nang mali ng ibang tao, nakakalimutan natin na may mali rin sa atin. Walang tao na tinuruan ng tamang asal simula pagkabata, ang gustong makipagkaibigan sa taong pala pula at mali lamang ang nakikita sa ibang tao.

Ang dami kong nakita sa comment box na mga nanay, mga tatay, mga guro at mga taong dapat tumatayong “role model” sa mga bata ngunit nakikita ang ugali sa comment box, nakikita kung paano mangutya ng ibang tao. How are we supposed to teach children good conduct kung tayo din ay hindi marunong panindigan ang mga sinasabi naten, at hindi kayang magpakababa.

Filipinos are known to be hospitable. Sa sobrang hospitable naten, nakakalimutan na nating maging hospitable sa mga kapwa natin. Sana. Sana naman, turuan natin ang mga kapwa natin na kung walang magandang sasabihin, mas magandang wag na lang magsalita o idaan sa bagay na makikinabang yung tao at hindi magiging dahilan ng pagdudusa nito.

Sobrang affected lang ako sa mga nakikita ko. This is not about that Miss Universe, baka sakaling maisip niyo na avid fan ako ng competition na yon.

Kung may mali akong nasabi, pwede niyo akong icorrect at hindi na lang ishare dahil correcting is learning .. and learning is growth.

The Importance of Appreciating No one as your Companion

We sometimes feel lonely and alone. We tried to fight it by calling our friends and telling them to drop by your house or hangout with you on your favorite coffeeshop. But sometimes, we need to face the state of being alone. We need to get our shits together and suck all the goodness in this state.

I know this is hard, mainly because of the people that surrounds and judges us pero wala silang pakialamKung wala kang pakialam sa mga tao sa paligid mo, isipin mo na wala rin silang pakialam. Itatak mo yan sa utak mo!

I like spending a lot of times with myself, and I find that very relaxing dahil hindi ako nasstress magisip ng paguusapan, at mas nakakapagfocus ako sa buhay ko. I’ve got a chance to think of my goals in life at kung ano ang mga priority ko ngayon. We mostly associate that being alone is being lonely, well that is wrong. Being alone is being away from dramatic people, sa mga taong walang tigil ang mga sinasabi tungkol sa ibang tao; and being alone is a secret of being relaxed. Siguro sa akin lang, pero try it yourself. Go to a quiet coffeeshop and read a book. It’ll be worth it. I promise!

YOU that MATTERS

We often do thing to please other people, to please our parents, our friends, our relatives…but are doing something to please ourselves? Maybe yes, maybe no.

So do this for you, to you and by you.

Have a meal outside by yourself. Enjoy every minute. Try thinking about the goals you want to achieve 10 years from now or even a year from now. Go and watch a movie by yourself. Go buy yourself a gift for standing strong.

Live your LIFE!

Everyone, including myself, should get-off the internet, get-off their beds – pick themselves up and live their dreams. It may sound so basic, but how can we argue when this statement stated the mere fact of reality.

This is one of those random realizations I get while staring at my phone as the lights slowly dim. Seeing myself inside the horrific world of the internet scares me. I don’t want to be that person who checks his phone for updates or  updates people on what I am doing at that specific moment, what food is on the top of my plate, who are the people I am with….etc. I just want to live in a world that is real and with less of the attention I need.

Recently, I permanently deleted my twitter account to keep myself away from tweeting unnecessary words and to publicize every thing about my life. Haha!

So… Goodluck with that!

EYE ON THE PRICE

Sometimes you just have let the wave take you some place where there is happiness and joy.

You just have to let the wave take you and not go against it.

But, the word sometimes has it part with that sentence. Sometimes you have to go with the flow of life, and sometimes you have to take risk and do some sacrificing in achieve your goal.

Achieving a goal would likely be the most satisfying part in our lives. There’s no other joy when we reached our very goal in life. No person or thing could ever provide or replace that happiness. Haha! That is why I am telling you to EYE ON THE PRICE. It’ll be worth it!

Power of Passing It On!!

There are times that you will need a community or a group that will listen, share and enhance your knowledge about life.

Mine is the Antioch Community. I am very aware that I grew up and attained the maturity I need from this community.

Spirituality and Godliness aren’t that much talk about these days. Some people like to talk more about gossips, celebrities, their addictions and many other more. While in this community, we talk about how blessed and gifted we are every day of our lives. How He give us everything that we NEED.

And I am very thankful that as a community we are keeping are promises to reach different people and pass everything we know about Father God to them.

We are also passing the love we received from Him. So, I Love You. Pass it on!

Appreciate that, not this.

There are so many things in life that is in need of appreciation. Yet, we people tend to put so much appreciation and recognition to the things that are little in need of it.

Appreciation is one part of encouraging others, and telling them that they are doing well. Nowadays, life can be a little tough and challenging. And we need a pinch of compliment from the efforts we are exerting.

At this moment, I realized how I put so much appreciation on the things that doesn’t matter (at all). I was blinded by the rays of insensitivity and ignorance, and not noticed how there are so much more important things (people, events etc.) that needed a taste of appreciation.

How many times did I mentioned appreciation? Lol. 

So, have you ever thought of listing the things you appreciate every single day? Have you ever wonder if those things are really in need of appreciation? If not, try reflecting about it. You’ll be surprised how silly your appreciation list can be.
