Optimism is a decision, not a trait.

Hello, RT Peeps! I really hope that everyone is doing fine.

What I am about to share with you is optimism. But before anything else, I would like to clarify that I am the opposite one.

Honestly, I grew up hating my life because this is not something that I had wish to have.

I am grateful, but not contented.

I almost have everything, but I often end up dissatisfied with the kind of life that I have.

So what gives me the right to speak about optimism, right?

But last night, when I was already resting someone texted me and told me that they were already on roof due to typhoon “Ulysses” which caused the areas to be engulfed by flood.

All homes were soaked in water with mud and I started to cry out of worry.

But you know what this person told me?

What’s with that worry? We are all fine! This person told me that I should be strong and be more thankful to God for they are still alive.

But let’s admit, our loved ones is our “achilles’ heel” that made it hard for us to see and accept the fact that they are suffering so much especially in this time of pandemic and now, facing another catastrophe in our lives.

Looking back, when I was in college I had a thesis about the effects of happy disposition and it seems like this person knows well my study more than I do.

How ironic, right? Seems to be more educated as well ’cause it did not affect this person’s point of view in life no matter how bad life gets and this made me feel more special to have someone who has that kind of thinking…much matured and full of positivity in life!

Now, I can attest that my philosophy professor was right in claiming that the most giving persons on earth were the poor ones.

Simply because they are still willing to share whatever that is left on them because they know how it feels to have nothing.

Sad to say, we need to see the sufferings of others not really to pity on them, but only to help us realize how lucky we are and that, we must be ashamed of God for making a fuss rather than praising him for all the blessings he had given to us.

Of course , I cannot promise to everyone that I would be as positive as this person, but somehow it moved me in choosing to be positive more often than to worry and complain a lot of things.

Just so you know, I became really depressed this month because I was constrained to do what I like. So down that it felt like I was not given a good life ’cause I was like a prisoner in our own house.

But after knowing what this person is going through, unexpectedly it gave me a meaningful message that I would never forget and that is…

Seeing the sufferings of our loved ones serve as an eye-opener on how we look at our own lives. God let us see the suffering of our loved ones to help us appreciate the blessings that was given to us in which we often took for granted.

Kudos to this person for making me realize that I was so wrong the whole time. I just feel suffocated, envy, and too desperate to get all my desires.

Hoping that I was able to give a light to others despite the fact that I am in no position to say these things. Just would like to help especially those who were already losing their faith in God.

It may not be our time, but with patience and right mindset, we will soon get there!

Maybe God has not given my plea all because of my tantrums, lack of faith in Him and most of all, comparing myself too often to anyone.

I am deeply sorry for acting foolish, oh Lord. Hopefully, this will be the starting point of changing my outlook in life that whatever storm we will face, there will always be a silver lining.

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog post and I do hope that you also learned something today. God bless!


If you were able to finish reading my work, what for you is the most annoying thing that has ever happened in your life…but felt guilty after learning the purpose of it?


Me?

Thinking that the worst enemy is my parents ’cause they are so controlling, strict and very conservative.

I’m already 26 years old. Had finished my studies and already working for almost 5 years now. But still they never allowed me to date or to hangout with friends just to travel. It should only be within our area and with a companion as well.

My life was about school and now, all about work since it’s a family business. I never really got a chance to get a normal life nor given too much freedom. And it adds more pain in my heart to be stuck at home due to Covid-19 threat. I became even more paranoid knowing that my life revolves around work and family alone.

That’s how I lived my life. I’ve been deprived for so long that it hurts so much that I never got a chance to have a kind of freedom just like everyone else. It’s true that when I was born, they were already wealthy and so they secured our life too much that sometimes, it became more stressful at home rather than fun.

But after assessing my life, I can proudly say that I am in good hands the moment that I was born. I may be got bullied at school, but never did I had a chance to be drunk and be raped which is too common for teenagers since they are the most gullible and vulnerable one.

Having strict parents is also a blessing ’cause whoever man that will come into your life, you can assure that you will be respected all because of them.

And whatever respect that I am receiving, the credit goes to my parents for molding me into a better person.

Of course, I am still hoping and wishing to grant my prayer and request since I am now matured and old enough. I promise that I would be more careful on whatever decisions that I will make in the future for them to stop worrying.

Now, it’s your turn to share. I am open whatever you want to share with me.

Feel free to comment below!

Gracias!

I Thought of Changing My Direction

Since it’s giving me a headache and stress on thinking of what featured image to post or what video to share in order to convey the purpose of my blog post, I plan of making things simpler and easier today.

After all, it all just serve as a props to me.

Though I strongly believe that visual works better, I guess it would all be useless if your work doesn’t have any substance. Plus, I have a full-time job and it’s hard on my end to create a balance on work, personal obligations and everything in between.

That is all I can say for now.

By the way, please expect to receive my blog post anytime of the day since having a fix schedule of publishing a blog doesn’t work well on me.

In short, we don’t have to stick to our original plan. Just stick to things that will work for you.

Thank you for reading my blog post. God bless and keep safe, RT Peeps!

How Do You Cope With This Whole Quarantine Thing?

Featured Image: AccuWeather

Today, I’m gonna share with you a video which I saw on Facebook for I find this to be as an eye opener to many. I am also spreading this video for the whole world to know. I honestly could relate to it because that’s how I view my life as of the moment.

Maybe we have overlooked all the little things that matter to us and take this life as if we all know what is bound to happen.

Well, we are all wrong. ‘Cause whether we do something or not, we still have no control over the world!

To tell you honestly, when I started working in our family business, I was too scared to get involve; to not know anything; and to fail the expectations of people around me. Most of all, there were a lot of things that I did give up due to work demands. Of course, it’s our own business so it is expected that their children will soon be the one to take over…whether we like it or not.

But right now, even if we are still working for we sell essential products, our time of business operations were shortened and that’s where I get to have some ample time to do the stuff that I failed doing for so long.

As of the moment, I am making use of my time to all the things that I have missed out for roughly 4 years! You read it right. You know, time flies quickly once you got busier that we sometimes fail to chill, relax and enjoy life.

Call me insane or exaggerated, but believe me or not, once you start working you need to give up some other things. Otherwise, you will be doomed! In addition to that, there’s no time for you to just play around or to take these things as lightly as how you want it to be. ‘Cause now, your life is on the line!

You may have a family or friends to lean on, but you should know very well that nothing is permanent in this world. Soon, they will get older and some of your close friends may lost their contacts with you due to their personal commitment as well. Thus, being too dependent to anyone is not something that will help you to grow and mature. You have to do it on your own and just be yourself.

Cause the truth is,

Once you go out and be into the real world, everything needs to be adjusted; needs to be changed. Ready or not, life must go on!

Instead of being pessimistic about this long period of quarantine, why not see this thing as an opportunity to learn new things; to challenge yourself; and to even make time for yourself and loved ones.

Cherish this moment ’cause once this pandemic has ended, at least you’ve done something you need it the most. And that is your whole self!

A lot of times we worry so much that we don’t even realize that we are the ones putting a lot of pressure and stress to our lives.

The ultimate enemy is us for we are the only one who knows ourselves better and this is something we can control of. Well, depending on your willingness to change for a better tomorrow.

Now, I am asking everyone to please do yourself a favor. Change the way you live your whole life. Do something that that you care about the most. Your health, family, dreams, etc. For I strongly believe that…

If you can be better, then you can do something bigger.

Am I correct?

By the way, for someone who doesn’t know me well, I grew up loving the idea of being such a busy person. I love doing anything that I feel doing all for the glory of being good at something. I may be lazy for awhile, but never did I try to do nothing most of the time. For those who were damn busy as hell like me, cheers! We all deserve to have this moment. ❀

No offense meant. I just hope that all of you do get the point of this whole quarantine.

It is not just about staying at home, it is also about doing something for mankind.

And God is simply redirecting us to do something much more worthy of our time.

After this whole quarantine period, I just hope that people will be able to realize that money, power, fame, greed, material possessions, and any other obsessions are not the things that last.

But rather, it is the kindness that we give and share from person to person.

For it leaves a beautiful mark in every heart and mind of people. Whether big or small act of kindness, it still means that you care about the people around. – You care about life!

Now, I encourage all of you to please stay at home most especially if your work is non-essential. Only go out when you need to buy something. But to prevent this from going out too often, try to stock enough essentials and please wear some personal protective equipment (PPE) whenever you are outside. Whether that’s a face mask, face shield, gloves and the like. You may also need to bring a travel size 70% alcohol for preventive measure of catching a virus. But never forget to wash your hands with soap and water regulary as possible. For it is still way better than just rubbing your hands with alcohol. And please practice social distancing with your family even at home. ‘Cause we never know. We honestly can’t tell what will happen next, so it is better if we at least follow all the preventive measures wherever we go or where we are staying at.

Most importantly,

Please don’t forget to pray!

Even if we are doing something for our country and the whole world, praying is something that we should never underestimate. Nonbelievers or believers of Christ are still made by God.

While we are healing as one, hopefully we are also respecting each and everyone.

Thank you for reading my blog post, RT Peeps. 😘 Keep safe everyone and God bless you all! πŸ™

A Star Is Born

Featured Image: From This Website

Many months ago, I watched this film and the reason why I include this on my blog is because…

It clearly shows the real struggle of being an artist.

Whenever they are on stage, it often creates an anxiety to them.

No wonder, most of them had led themselves into taking drugs and becoming more dependent on alcohols im order to cover up their depression.

It’s a kind of high and low experience ’cause you never know what will be the reaction of people.

Some may cheer for you no matter what and some may boo you for making even the slightest mistake.

When the crowd gets loud and wild, the feeling was more like taking ectasy, a kind of drug where you’ll feel like you’ve already reached the pinnacle of your life.

But when the crowd gets disappointed, be ready enough what to be thrown at you. Abruptly, you’ll feel as if it was the worst nightmare you’ve ever had.

Thus, the film also portrays how challenging and depressing it is to be an artist.

Not to mention, you must compete with the younger generations as well. Otherwise, you’ll be left behind.

No matter how you adore your craft, you still need to explore and expose yourself to other things for you to improve and not to get stale in the entertainment industry.

Business is business and so is your talent, which is why, it gets even more harder to keep that job for it changes rapidly.

What’s trending right now, may no longer be impactful in the future. For this reason, you are expected to try someting else; something new and fresh.

That’s how crucial their job is…where fame doesn’t last long, not even money.

So, how about you? What are you planning to do with your life to make it worthwhile?

Please comment below.

Silent Scream

Featured Image: Pexels

When you want to say something, but you decided to shut your mouth ’cause you have nothing good to say.

When you became so used to hiding your feelings ’cause you were always misunderstood before they console you.

I felt that too often.

I also feel that I have this worst enemy in me that I can only solve by myself.

I am physically strong, yet too emotionally weak.

I have several tendencies to commit suicide.

But kept reminding myself that I still have many things to experience before ending my life.

This is for the people who cannot voice out.

This is not for the weak, this is just for the people who became fed up in trying to prove one’s worth.

There are some moments, well most of the time I really don’t open up.

I just don’t feel comfortable enough to share.

I may share a part of it. But not every detail.

There are some stuffs you have to keep it to yourself ’cause not everyone are a good listener.

Not everyone is understanding.

Not everyone is like you.

I am writing this ’cause whoever is planning to commit suicide, you are not alone.

‘Cause I am just like anybody else who can be a worst enemy to oneself.

When something or someone pissed me off, I try to limit my response.

I try to appear that I am not hurt.

I try to act okay.

But the truth is, the more I try to hide it, the more painful it becomes.

Sometimes, it is better to talk with strangers ’cause what’s more important is that…you were able to let it out.

I am voicing out here ’cause there are things that I cannot open up to others.

Some are way too jugdmental.

Some don’t have the heart to be understanding.

Some wouldn’t do any help to you.

So, why not share it here? Only people who can understand and relate to me can leave a comment.

That’s all.

Why Even Royalties Experience to Pity Themselves?

Featured Image: From This Website

Most people believed that money is the answer to everything.

If it truly does…

Then why even royalties or the rich ones on earth get to pity themselves?

It just shows that no matter how luxurious your life is…

You still get to experience frustrations in life not because you are not contented with the kind of life you have, but rather because we are all human beings.

Regardless of your life’s status, you will still get to experience this and that’s pretty normal. As clichΓ© as it may sound, not everything you could get.

Especially the intangible ones.

Namely,

Friendship, love, trust, and even passion.

Why Friendship?

Because we are wired to speak and to communicate. Failing to have someone to talk to leads you to question your life.

Why Love?

Because without it, there’s no reason to continue living.

The truth is…

No one can live on earth without anyone by their side.

Imagine you are just a baby and there was no one around.

No food.

No water.

Not even a shelter.

You think you could survive?

Why Trust?

I hate to say this, but all of us have experienced some kind of trust issues wherever we go.

And having no one to trust feels like you are invisible; that you don’t exist at all!

Lastly,

Why Passion?

Because I believe, we all have a purpose in life. God placed us on earth to find meaning in our lives.

And a life without a passion is like waiting for yourself to die without even knowing what you truly wanted in life.

See?

Not everything is about money.

It is about our relationship with God; with people whom we can trust and share our firsts moment.

And lastly, about how we see and treat ourselves.

How about you?

What intangible things that made you to pity yourself?

These are just some of the things that I believe is hard to find as well as to earn.

Please comment below and tell me what you think about my topic for today.

Gracias!

Learn To Control Your Temper Especially To The Elders

Featured Image: From This Website

Not so long ago, my parent who was nearly 60 got pissed off to me.

My parent who was known to have a bucket of patience suddenly burst into anger.

Well, I clearly understand where that mood came from.

One afternoon, I was asked to come upstairs to get my own food, but failed to do it out of busyness.

Of course, I got surprised when she scolded me.

So, I took some time off to tone down my emotion before I leave my work.

But not before long, the food was already at my place.

You see,

Both of my parents are already close enough to be a senior.

That is why,

It is no wonder that their level of patience suddenly became too little.

But, that doesn’t mean that they don’t love me enough.

Now that I am already a grown up woman, I have come to my senses that it is now my turn to understand them deeply with no reservation.

As much as possible, I try to avoid arguments every now and then…

Despite the fact that I was being right.

At some point in my life, I have come to realize that not all battles are worth fighting for.

‘Cause oftentimes,

It is not about being right, but rather about being kind.

You may have won in the argument, but you have lost the respect in them.

So rather than consuming all my energy to be well understood,

It is better to have an ear towards them 24/7.

You see, life is too short to entertain the ugly side of each person.

So, instead of feeding your mind with negative thoughts,

Why not focus on beautiful things that ever happened in your life?

I bet, that will be hard to count!

So…

If ever there has been a misunderstanding between you and your family or someone who’s older than you, learn to listen towards them.

Sometimes, getting angry means that they care way too much to you.

Too much that it now hurts you.

But here’s what you need to remember.

Someday, you’ll also get old; you’ll get weak; and you’ll feel helpless.

Words are deadly.

Please do remember that!

So, let’s try to control our temper whenever possible.

‘Cause I strongly believe that…

Whatever hurtful words that comes out of your mouth cannot be taken back.

How about you? When was the last time that your level of patience was put into test?

And what are the strategies that you have done in order to deepen your level of patience and understanding?

My Heart Goes To Star City

Featured Image: From This Website

If ever you had been to Philippines, you’ll know that…

Star City is one of the all-time favorites of Filipino as amusement park.

So, when the fire incident happened somewhere in October…

It honestly broke my heart.

Probably,

Thousands or even millions of people were shocked about the breaking news!

Your Worth Isn’t Measured

Featured Image: From This Website

Your worth isn’t measured by:

Fame.

Money.

Position.

And

Status.

For you are worthy.

Despite…

Imperfection.

Failures.

Rumors.

But most of all,

Situation.

Simply because you are…

Loved.

Appreciated.

Accepted.

And

Treasured.

By the number of people who really cared and valued you.

So stop putting the blame on yourself.

I know, there are days were life is pressing you down, but life isn’t all about that.

Life is just simply making you stronger so whatever happens, you can move forward.

After all, change is constant.

So why end your dreams by just a number of failures?

How about you?

If things are pressing you down, how you do respond to it?

Don’t Be Disheartened

If things are not working so well right now..

You’re not alone.

If you are experiencing some writer’s block, better yet take a break.

If you’re not getting any likes or comments lately, take a break as well.

It might be because you’ve been blogging something that needs to be improved.

Probably, you’re lacking on some areas.

Or they are just looking for something new to read.

Whatever that is,

Don’t be disheartened for you are not alone in this journey.
