How’s your week going on so far?

Hey friend, I hope you’re all doing fine and feeling happy.

It’s already Wednesday. So far, I am doing good and feeling happy.

I started the week with the determination to keep myself happy and to only hold on to happy thoughts.

Last Monday, the very first thing that I read is an email that reminds me to be happy. This is what He said:


Dear Eds,
Life is short. One hundred years is
short. So wear your party pants. Be happy. Suck the joy of
every single day I give you.

Be happy,
God
P.S. Eds, I want you to celebrate and sing.

I was also inspired by the speech given by our boss last Monday about kindness. She said, we must start kindness for ourselves so we can truly extend kindness to others. Another thing that she said and that made me hope to come so soon was her promise that our salary will be revert back to our previous rate.

Yesterday, I was busy. But I was happy and satisfied.

Today, as I start my day He said:

Dear Eds,
Embrace failure. Fail forward. Fail quickly. So that you can start
again.

It's the only road to success.

To your great success,
God
P.S. Eds, you will succeed. I know.

So, I hope that everything will be fine today and for the rest of the week.

How about you? How’s your week going on so far?

Something to help those not-so-math-lovers

I love math subject, in fact that’s my favorite subject during my elementary & high school days. Rather than memorizing those poems and other long stories, I found memorizing math equations a little bit easier. But a lot of people doesn’t want math as a subject. Sad to say they still have to face the fact that they still have to take it in school whether they like it or not. Mathematics is always part of our daily lives. And we really need to know basic math – the simple addition, subtraction, division and multiplication. Our knowledge in mathematics is needed even in buying goods, in paying bills or in the examination given to those who are applying for a job.

Now, I must admit that although I love this subject there are times that I found hard time in solving those algebra problems. Problem I usually found hard to solve is on interpreting those long algebra word problems.

Glad to say that for this generation, technology is really on a big help to them. They have the opportunity to avail of those online tutorial services. And that nothing is impossible nowadays. Students for this generation can also use algebra homework help or even find an algebra tutor as much as they want and whenever they need it. And that’s a reason to make them happy and learn to love math subject.

15 on 15: randomness galore!

I planned to write an update on a weekly basis for this year but sad to say, I failed. After my first attempt on drafting my first weekly update, I felt unsatisfied and hit the delete button in my computer.

Now, since it is already half of the month, I’ll just write 15 random updates, rants, thoughts, feelings, advises, and lessons that I felt and I learned for the past 15 days.

Here they are:

► Fear and sadness are still in the air at the office in connection with the rationalization and reorganization happened to our office.

► Our salary for this year decreased. They said the office don’t have enough funds to cover our previous rate.

► As per GSIS online record, my cash advance last 2006 still has a balance of more than half of the principal amount I borrowed considering that the office started to deduct from my salary sometimes in the last quarter of 2006. And that the personnel concerned in deducting and paying my loan wasn’t able to give me any paper on how much the total amount deducted and paid to the GSIS. So, what I can do now is reconcile everything from the payslip and payroll that I have.

♥ For two weeks now, I keep on bringing packed lunch for hubby and I to save us money from buying foods from the nearby fastfood/canteen.

♥ I need some inspiration and motivation. It is so hard to write or do something when you are actually not inspired to do it.

♥ I received a lot of spam emails this January more specifically from persons who asked help about the money left by their wealthy relatives, etc..etc…Feeling ko tuloy malapit na akong yumaman. Hehehe…

♥ My word for the month is “GOSH”. I don’t know why but that is the first word that always comes out with my big mouth. Lol. That’s my expression whenever I got shocked or simple saying my comments to what other people are saying.

♥ I have to double time on reading. My target is to read at least one book a month. And yet I haven’t started reading for this month. Anyway, I still have 15 days more to go.

♥ I got my 2010 planner and yet it is still clean and I haven’t written anything on it.

♥ When my husband asked me what day will February 13 & 14 fall, I thought he will ask me for a date but I was wrong, he will watch slam dank lang pala. *grrr*

♠ Explore as many outlet as I can. Life is full of surprises. There are a lot of ups and downs that I need to deal with. And that having a lot of outlet during those bad times will really help me take things a little bit easier and move on faster.

♠ Never buy anything that will not satisfy my needs & wants. For example, I am planning to buy laptop or netbook computer this year but I am still undecided whether the big one or the smaller one. My sister told me, please do check and think what you really need & want. And do not buy something that will not satisfy you just for the sake of having such thing or for the simple reason that it is cheaper than the other because sooner or later you will realize that you are not happy on what you have.

♠ Don’t give up! With so many trials that is really bothering me lately, I must admit that there are times that I lost hope and almost give up.

But HE whispered to me this one:


“Dear Eds,


Don't give up. Life rewards those who persevere.
I promise you that if you don't give up, ultimately, you will find that open door. It has been waiting for you.



Your Door Opener,


God


P.S. When the going gets tough, the tough get going. Eds , I made you tough.”


(Note: Thanks witsandnuts for the link.)


♠ Stay calm. With a lot of irritants roaming around, I really have to hold my temper. Idaan sa kain ang lahat ng problema, hehehe

♠ Above all, think positive and be positive!


I’m done. Whew, Thanks God it’s Friday again. Tomorrow I am not obliged to wake up very early.

Have a happy weekend everyone!

welcome 2010!

Hey friends, Happy New Year! Time flies so fast and it’s already 2010. 2009 was such a rollercoaster ride for me and so this year I hope and I pray for a better year ahead!

I love writing my resolution, wishes and wants although sometimes it only means setting up myself for failure.

For this year, here goes my random resolution, wishes and wants:

♠ Go on diet and discipline myself to have a daily exercise.
♠ Spend more quality time with the family.
♠ Visit my parents & siblings as well as my in-laws in the province as often as possible.
♠ Read more books.
♠ Save up for the future and for KA’s schooling needs
♠ Blog more often.
♠ Save more to buy car and start a business.
♠ Buy a laptop.
♠ Enroll for a refresher course or to driving class
♠ Reconnect with friends and former classmates.

That’s it. I hope I would be able to accomplish all these things.

Friends, I wish you all the best this year. Let us all keep the positivity alive for 2010! Happy New Year to all! Cheers!
