Give and Gift

GIVE and GIFT are in the word forgiveness. When I decide to forgive someone who has wronged me, that is a GIFT that I GIVE to that person. And when I have decided to move on without the person with no bitterness at all – though I may remember the offence and the betrayal of trust as a lesson learned; and now with no need to have anything to do with him or her, then that is a gift I am giving to myself.

Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it. I am sure you are grateful to a lot of people who have helped you. So now go and unwrap the gift and let them know. It’s a perfect time to do that this Christmas season.

And here’s how to bring our actions to the next level according to William Arthur Ward… Do more than care: HELP. Do more than believe: PRACTICE. Do more than belong: PARTICIPATE. Do more than be fair: BE KIND. Do more than forgive: FORGET. Do more than dream: WORK.

Be Rich, God Won’t Mind

We should be rich. But don’t think riches in terms of money alone. Some people are so poor the only thing they have is money.

We should be rich in the following areas: Rich in knowledge. Rich in adventure. Rich in laughter. Rich in health. Rich in family. Rich in love. These are the riches that really matter. And money that is used to enhance these things. Money is not the most important thing but it affects all other important things.

Never believe those who would promise you instant success and quick money. Without work, no success would be sustainable. But still, many are enticed with “get-rich-quick” schemes and fail to understand, that is precisely what it is… schemes. Be wise. Be willing to work hard and shoot for excellence

What the heck, be rich, I’m sure God will not mind! In fact we need money to serve God and not the other way around. Please remind them by sharing this thought. 😉

To Be A Winner

If we want to be a winner, then we have to stop thinking like we are the victim. If we want to achieve great things then we have to stop thinking small. Let’s take charge and be responsible for the choices we make.

It’s one thing when someone accomplishes something, but isn’t it better when a team achieves something together and everyone can celebrate? Talent may win games, but teamwork and team play win championships. A person may be a superstar but when the team does not win, the personal victory is not meaningful.

“A winner is someone who recognizes his God-given talents, works his tail off to develop them into skills, and uses these skille to accomplish his goals.” ~Larry Bird

Value Our Loved Ones

Happy halloween! Everytime I pass by a cemetery or see one on TV or in a movie I feel a bit of grief. Sometimes I thought of seeing dreams unfulfilled, hugs and kisses not expressed, unshared good stories, smiles and laughters. I mean each of us has our own time frame; we just don’t know when it’s up or how our precious life will end. One moment can change the entire course of life.

This reminds me that happiness is not only measured by the amount of wealth or riches we have but the presence of people in our life. This is why we need to value them and the moments we have with them. Never take them for granted.

Final thought: When you were born you were crying while everyone’s laughing. Make the best out of your life so that when the time comes, you will be the one who’s laughing while everyone’s crying… like what my father did. I miss you tatay so much! ‘Til we meet again.

Just A Memory

People today may no longer remember the celebrities of yesteryears. This is a lesson we all must learn. One day, no matter how much we have achieved, no matter how many followers we have in our social media account, you and I will just be a memory.

And even that will fade so there is absolutely no reason we need to be proud and arrogant. Just do our job well, be honest, be kind and live life to the full in God’s presence.

Remember the time when you’re hanging out with friends and family? Then you start recalling memories, blasts from the past where some incredible stuff happened? Some were good, some really funny? They were unique and special. Spend these days creating moments and cultivating memories that will be remembered.

Watching TV is a fake experience, video games are fake accomplishments, dating apps are fake intimacies. Create real experiences and beautiful moments with the people who matter to you.

Happy halloween!

Never Fails

Here’s a nice quote that I would like to share with you: LIFE is BEAUTIFUL. Don’t spoil your day by looking at the negative things of life. Instead look at GOD’s creations around us. New day after a long night. Rainbow after the rain. Solution to a problem. Help in times of need. These things bring us new hope. GOD’s love never fails.

We have strength when we know our weaknesses. We are beautiful when we know our flaws. We have wisdom when we learn from our mistakes. You and I are works in progress.

And this is why there is something wrong with anyone who insists that he or she is right every time. Live life with humility knowing that God’s Grace is there for those who are willing to accept it. Life is never about success; it is always about progress.

No Excuses

When faced with a difficult situation we can either find a way, make a way but we definitely should not create an excuse. We will never profit from the experience.

We do not succeed all the time but we can always profit by learning from it. Do not loose the lesson even if you lose.

It is better to err on the side of action. This way we can make adjustments. Where there is action there would be movement and adjustments. But when we commit an error on the side of inaction, then we achieve nothing and tend to make excuses. This would be a failure with no redeeming value.

Nobody will care about excuses. Nobody will pity procrastinating. Nobody’s gonna cuddle someone who’s lazy. Its your ass. You move it.

Energy Vampires

People are always unavailable for people who are constantly complaining and angry all the time. It’s not that they are insensitive, it is simply because their energy are zapped and their beauty is uglified by all that negativity. Put on a smile on your face and be an encourager instead. The world opens up to you in terms of friendship and opportunities.

Surround yourself with the dreamers and the doers, the believers and the thinkers. But most of all surround yourself with those who see greatness within you.

Some people equate the worth of a person with the work he or she produces. That is all so wrong. You are worth so much not because of what you do but because of what Christ has done for you on the cross. This is why only Christ gives intrinsic worth. No need to feel sorry for yourself. You are worth so much in the eyes of The One who have His life for you.
