5 Ways to escape Boredom.

When boredom strikes me I make sure that I have to run off and divert my attention to other things that would make me more productive.  Some of my friend would ask me what I would do if the state of being bored hits me. Well, that’s not kinda hard. Haha! Anyway, I want to share my simple five ways to escape boredom.

1.    Watch a movie. Yes, hehe, I frequently download movies that suits to my taste.  I love watching films especially animation, romance, comedy and pretty much suspense with a matching twist and turn of the plot. I usually go to IMDB.com to check the movie ratings which is pretty much important in choosing a good movie to watch; of course you don’t want to waste your time on watching with a predictable plot.

2.     Read Books online and offline. I have plenty of books in hand and there are amazing post in the web world which is actually helpful and inspiring. I usually read self-enhancement blogs, I subscribed to their blog so I won’t visit their blog all the time. If you subscribed to their blog you’ll receive all their post and updates straight to your inbox, that’s more convenient.

3.     Blogging. Yay! Hehe, one of my favorite places online is my tumblr page. I can post whatever I like, whenever I want on that blog. That blog was actually my jpg blog; most of the posts were all images.  I like manga, anime and taylor swift and quotes and random ideas that comes to my mind.  I enjoy discovering new tumblr pages and anime images. I typically spend 2 hours just browsing and reblogging post haha! My blogspot blog is somehow more a serious type of blog hehe. Anyway, I love these two blogs of mine. This is my medium of craziness.

What is forgiveness?

Today’s homily is all about forgiveness. I thought of it for awhile and I said it’s so hard to forgive someone who made your life miserable, isn’t it? I’m only human; I can get angry and hate that someone, a natural instinct especially when I’ve been hurt badly. But God can forgive us that easy. Is it because God is not a human? Or God loves us that much that he doesn’t want to lose us? Matthew 18:21-25 is about the Parable of the Unmerciful Servant.

21 Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?” 22 Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times. 23 “Therefore, the kingdom of heaven is like a king who wanted to settle accounts with his servants. 24 As he began the settlement, a man who owed him ten thousand bags of gold was brought to him. 25 Since he was not able to pay, the master ordered that he and his wife and his children and all that he had be sold to repay the debt.

I thought I could never ever forgive the person who has done something so bad to me. I have tried but I couldn’t. I actually turned to God and asked him, why should I feel this way? Is it wrong to hate someone? Is it wrong to get angry at them cause of what they did? How can I forgive them dear God? I can’t find the nerve to forgive them ever. I hated them much.

Forgiveness is a choice. We must trust God to work on us so that forgiveness will flow easily within our hearts. Forgiveness involves time as well. Maybe we can’t forgive that person now, maybe in time we are ready to move on and let go of that anger and hatred inside our hearts. So true that forgiveness is a slow process.
When we learn to forgive someone we receive the award of freedom. Corrie Ten Boom, a Christian woman who survived a Nazi concentration camp during the Holocaust, said, "Forgiveness is to set a prisoner free, and to realize the prisoner was you." We know much that we suffer most because we choose not to forgive and that we imprisoned ourselves to hatred, anger and bitterness.  When we forgive we let go of those negative feelings.


“Anger is like flowing water.
There’s nothing wrong with it as long as you let it flow.
Hate is like stagnant water.
Anger that you denied yourself the freedom to feel, the freedom to flow.
Water that you gathered in one place and left to forget.
Stagnant water becomes dirty, poisonous, deadly.”
C. JoyBell C.
Flowing water allows forgiveness.
It allows you to acknowledge your feelings, feel them, and then let them pass.
Allow yourself to feel whatever it is that you feel.
Instead of attaching judgement to your feelings,
Embrace them with compassionate curiosity.
Let your waters of forgiveness flow. 
Let them push out the hate.
And make room for love
Matthew 6:14-16 

For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins. (NIV)
