change your life, change your talk

After reading an article from Bo, I realized a lot of mistakes that I made. I don't want to blame anyone since I have complete control of my thoughts and my words. As you can see, if you know me personally, I can get easily irritated and short-tempered. My boyfriend is the victim of my mood swings and I would say things that I never thought would hurt him. I would realized that when I feel his silence. I never meant to say those words but I said it already I can never take it back. Back to reflections I made, I learned these words from Bo on his article and I would like to share them here. 

You need to learn a new kind of vocabulary. 

Instead of saying, “I have some failures,” say, “I have some lessons.” 
Instead of saying, “I have some problems,” say, “I have some hidden blessings.” 
Instead of saying, “I’m going through a crisis,” say, “I’m going through a transformational experience.” 
Instead of saying, “I don’t have money,” say, “I’m temporarily broke but the blessings are on the way.”

I'm guilty with all those words mentioned by Bo. You see, I didn't even know it could affect my personality and attitude. I thought words are nothing but words, I know them, I understand them but I was wrong cause I don't reflect on them. I would always whine that I have a lot problems. I'm worried with something that I shouldn't have to (affected lang). I would say, I was only dragged to this situation, as if I have a choice! I can't stand myself saying those words to think that this person is the most loving person I know. I don't want to talk about this na cause it breaks my heart huhu.

Right now instead of saying I have problems, it's time for me to say "I have some hidden blessings" and instead of saying I don't have money, I would say "I’m temporarily broke but the blessings are on the way." I  was amazed when Bo said "The quality of your words will determine the quality of your life—including the life of the people around you."  I love it really. T_T 

Next time, I will choose my words carefully. If you want to read the whole article of Bo's, here's the link Change Your Vocabulary.

A gift

First off, I am thankful that my leave was approved and I could take a few days off work and travel. It's a secret for now since I wanna blog about it, excited lang! haha! Anyhow, I received two gifts last Christmas, the first one was a cute orange slippers from Pearly (forgot to took a photo of it) and a cutie notebook with a lovely mousepad!

isn't that a cutie? actually she looks like Kikyou in InuYasha haha!
Last week, I got my new pair of glasses. After 3 years, I finally went for an eye check-up. I'm unhappy that my eye grade was higher than of 3 years ago, both my eyes are now at -0.50. The negative sign means I have myopia (nearsighted). Also, I'm a bit surprised with the lenses though. When I got it and try it on, I was really happy that my vision is more clearer than my old one however I believe the lenses are not AR lens (anti-reflective). I forgot to tell the doctor that it should be an AR lens. When I went back to the store and told them about my dilemma, they told me that it was an AR lens. I compared the two glasses in front of them the new and my old one but the doctor insisted it was an AR.

I researched about AR and it shouldn't be like this. AR lenses should reduce the glare on the glasses. I did not argue no longer since I don't want to have a bad day. I kinda like their service on the first day, sadly now, I have second thoughts. So I took a photo from my lappy's cam to check out the difference between the two.

On the left side above is the new and the right was the old one. On the other hand, below left is the old one and right side is the new. Can you spot the difference? hehe

So that's it! I can't do anything for now. I'm loving my new since I love the frame so much but I'm still using the old one, no need to throw it away. waaaah and Life of Pi is now showing, thank you Lord for hearing my rants haha! Kaka-sad kasi wala pa sya sa cinemas. I need to see it before my boypran goes to Manila. haha! I cannot wait!

365 days of 2013

Hello 3rd day of 2013. I can’t believe this is my 1st post for this year. I should have my 1st post on the 1st day of the year. Anyway, I’m not sure why I forgot to write on the 1st day, maybe I was having a holiday hangover (no alcohol present, of course). Right now, I am leaving 2012 with the good, bad, sad and happy memories. The best part of my 2012 for me was my boyfriend is finally home. He just got back from a year and one month work outside the country. The saddest part was my two grannies died because of illness.

I have to summarize my 2012 through this collage I made. I can’t fit all the photos here since I have to utilize the space provided. Don’t ask why most of them are couple photos hehe I love this year cause my boypran is here to witness my achievements and failures. He’s my adviser and my listener. You have no idea how many times he seen me crying my eyes out with all the heartaches. He cried, laugh and dance with me this year. He is genuinely my best-friend and our souls rejoiced for finding each other. My love for him gets deeper and deeper each day and I can’t wait to be with him soon. There are no reasons for us to be away from each other again. Ever! And I’m willing to wait for that time to come.

So this year I have no New Year’s resolutions, on the other hand I have here some reminders for myself.
  • First I have to commit to fitness.  I’m not yet sure if I’m obsessed with fitness and eating healthy. Maybe fitness but when it comes to eating habits I still can’t resist my cravings to sweet stuffs. I have to seriously commit to this since I’m not gonna buy Herbalife products anytime soon.
  • Secondly, I have to save money. I just started my FICCO account December last year. FICCO is one recommended Cooperative so why not trust them? A lot of people trust FICCO even my parents. I am planning to save money also through bank but still undecided with BDO, Metrobank and BPI. I have a plan that's why I needed it through bank, with a passbook and ATM card. I have to work on this as soon as possible.
  • I want to remind myself to learn how to say NO. Saying No in a polite kind of way. I hate myself sometimes for being so submissive. This time around I have to decline graciously and love myself more. 
  • I want to remind myself everyday of how thankful I am to God for having a beautiful life. It’s time to recognize some goodness and uphold good vibes by being grateful.
I want to thank Almighty Father, merciful and loving God for this beautiful LIFE, for another year to embrace and another challenges to face. There are uncertainties in the future but I offer everything to HIM. I just have to live my life day by day with a grateful heart. Thanks to all the people who made my 2012 crazily remarkable. I have a lot of 1st times on the previous year and I’m looking forward to more this year.
