Acceptance is The Key: Key to More Possibilities

Like they say, “New Year, New Beginnings” or the old “New Year, New Me” popular in Social Medias. Like the response on the latter, “who were you last year?” or “old crap, different year”. The question is, why you need the “new you” than the person who you truly are? Maybe I misunderstood the person saying “New Year, New Me”, maybe he or she really improving him or herself on the past year and the changes would bloom on the coming year. Nevertheless, we should not let go who we are to the trend of the world.

Accepting really is a difficult thing to swallow. Sometimes, we do not like the “me” in us or maybe we are focused on the things that are ugly in us that is why the goods are always overshadowed and we never thought that good things are already there. It’s hard to focus on the good in us that were pre judged when we are a kid. How come, something good is judged as “not good”? Well let’s just say we listen too much on what other people say to us than really evaluate it first to ourselves that  we have potential. Sometimes people really like ruining other people lives because they are jealous, they are trash talkers just ruining your game, downgrading your morale. Keep calm, ignore and move on. Search on friends or to a community that really knows about what are good and bad in you, focus on strengthening the good and improving further your weaknesses.

Having a group people that understands your strengths will guide you further as you progress and the journey to wherever you wanted to go will not be as bad as it sound. People that will put you down will always be there sniffing your reputation and all, but don’t be afraid, there’s a lot more of them when you get to top.

Acceptance is much harder to accept if you did not see its potential first. Even how ridiculous or ugly the real “me” It is all that you have. Embracing the real you will open a lot of opportunities if you learn to harness the strength, believing on it and loving it. No one can love you better than yourself.

Yolanda: Strongest to hit the Philippines

Reed Richards

Typhoon

She is the strongest to hit the Philippines and the world so far. Haiyan her international name hit 22 provinces November 8 morning. Hitting the shores of Samar Friday morning, even there are evacuation efforts before this treacherous landfall still Samar really suffered much.

As she passed Samar, Yolanda maintained its sustained winds of 215 kph , which really makes this typhoon a very strong one. Normally a tropical storm or even stronger ones toned down its strength to a more non destructive depression, but this one did not budge a bit. Though its winds and rains are most likely in the center, areas on its tails are still not safe. Luckily Metro Manila did not experience much of the wrath but still as prevention, private offices cancelled their operation early in preparation of this typhoon.

Forecasted to hit Guiuan and Abuyog then pass Biliran, Iloilo and Capiz, early evacuations are done wishing to have zero casualties. Despite the efforts, as of 11pm there are recorded 33 casualties and a million of properties damaged by this catastrophe.

This was a capture from above, but in land it is a different story.

Here are snapshots of what happened in the ground.

All are in high alert in the provinces that are affected and prayers roam in the social media. Philippines have the highest number of Catholics in South East Asia, proving their faith in these times of trials.

PAGASA the weather bureau in the Philippines has gained praise to the early identifying of the upcoming typhoon and warning everyone. They have time to time updates in twitter and on their website make sure

So far very strong winds from where I am right now are felt. The family is safe and maybe I can monitor the winds making sure everything is ok.

Lapses in Memory: Age? – Short Post

Responsibility

Responsibility

There’s really a lot to blog from the past 3 months, but I really do not have a time and my machine broke last October and I just got it back on.

memory1Well from I will retro a lot of posts just to have something every month. A lot of opportunities were coming and going out of my hands but I guess it’s better to be occupied with my family than anything else.

What Keeps Me Busy

I am very busy playing in the past 2 months and then my machine broke. Then I got a shifting schedule in the office which really ruins my sleeping habits. I’ve been busy with my wife since she got an emergency last October. This by the way is good, that I got to do the chores that I never tried before, which is very revealing at this stage of my life. My daughter got some nifty medals to add up on the rewards of being a parent.

Recent events really give me the opportunity to grow as a person and as a responsible husband and dad to my daughter which will be eventually twice as fun. Taking all the credit on the past activities I really have these lapses in my memory and organization. This draws a lot of work; let’s call it a side effect of the task assigned that should have got on the first try.

I really need to do some memory exercise for myself to keep me from being reminded every time.
