Daily Inspiration: Life is...

Friday, November 30, 2012

Good morning! Thank God it's holiday. Well, thank you to Andres Bonifacio. I will have time to finish my MTOs and to spend some quality time with my little Matt. Matt is so talkative, as in. He will never stop until you listen to him and say yes. He repeats all the words he hears so we are really careful with what we speak. 

Moving forward, here's our Daily Inspiration for today.


Life is life. Don't always try to change it the way you want it to be. Just go with the flow and enjoy life.

Happy Friday!

Daily Inspiration: Candle or Mirror

Oh my sorry! I almost forgot to post an inspirational quote for us. As usual, I am busy and getting busier each day. I know being busy means good for me, for my family and for our small business. I am happy to know there are more and more people are trusting me. I will definitely give you the best service I can. Though there a one or two customers whom I have encountered a little problem with. At the back of my mind, this business will never be good without hard to deal with customers. Right?

So here's our Daily Inspiration for today.

source

Which makes me think, am I the candle or the mirror. I think I can be both. Being a mother, I am the candle that gives light to my family. A mother will always be in between of everyone in the family comes conflict and misunderstanding. A mother enlighten her children whenever they are in doubt or unsure. I am pretty sure that most of us run to our mothers when the going gets though.

On the other hand, I can be the mirror that reflects the light. To my friends, colleagues and my readers, I try to spread the light with you. But since I am not as always string so I need someone to light me up at those times.

Be the candle or the mirror, and spread the light!

Happy Wednesday!

Photostory: Instagram

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

It is such a shame to admit but I am new to Instagram. Okay, I have seen a lot of Instagram photos on Facebook,  twitter, blogs and the likes. I actually thought the application is for iPhone or iPad only. It was only yesterday that I have discovered I can download Instagram app for Matt's Samsung Galaxy Tab. I was like Daddy look Instagram app works with Samsung! Lol.

So here's my Instagram photo of me with a shorter hair. Oh yes, after more than 7 months, I had my haircut. Don't ask me why, because I really am busy with work, family, home, shop, crocheting, blogging... Hehe.


I wonder if Instagram app will work with Nokia phones as well, anyone? Thanks in advance.

Daily Inspiration: A Little Hope to Love

Good morning! Compared to past three days, I feel a lot better today. It helps that I just keep my silence and think. And to inspire you and of course me, here's our Daily Inspiration for today.


For the past three days, I am emotionally down, almost losing hope in one of the important persons in my life. Yeah, I am mad at him because he is very difficult to deal with. But I still have this little hope in my heart. I am hoping and praying that one day he will realize that we are never his enemies and that all we want for him is only his goodness. That little hope is just enough to still love him despite everything he is doing.

Life is beautiful and God is really good. Have a great day ahead of us!

Tuesday, November 20, 2012

Apart from story books and puzzles, Matt loves coloring books too.


No, he don't do it by himself. His Tita guided him all throughout. He is learning really fast. I think he is already coping with the terrible twos phase and it is shifting to terrific twos. He can control his emotions better now. So I hope it will go on smoothly. Thank God!

Daily Inspiration: Everything has A Purpose

Hello everyone! I am still not feeling well. You can read here why.

But despite this I want to inspire you with this Daily Inspiration.


It is hard to say something positive when you are totally not feeling well. At this moment, I am not emotionally good. I am torn and stressed and tired. But I know everything happens for a reason. I just need to be strong and think positively. I must trust God because He is always under control. I am praying that this will end soon and that God will give me the strength to go on.

Have a great day ahead everyone!

P.S.: I already bought my own domain. Another blessing and inspiration for me.

The initial run generated more than 2,000 entries and raised more than PHP 100,000 from donations alone during this period.

With Havaianas Design a Smile, we hope to generate funds and awareness to support Operation Smile in our shared mission to spread smiles all over the world.”

This November to January, Havaianas Design a Smile 2 is back, with the theme “Paying it Forward: Kids Helping Kids.” Beginning November 24th, artistically inclined kids can join Havaianas Design a Smile by submitting their designs illustrating their answer to the question “What will you do to make other people smile?” at partner events nationwide, beginning with the Bonifacio Global City Passion Fest at Bonifacio High Street from November 23 to 25, and at the Mommy Mundo Bazaar at the Rockwell Tent from November 24 to 25. Winners will receive exciting prizes from Havaianas, Bobble, Pininho, Hobbes and Landes, McDonald’s, and Sony.

Daily Inspiration: Misunderstanding

Good morning everyone! Sharing with you our Daily Inspiration for today.

I am not emotionally okay. I am tired, stress and... Oh well, I am not used to telling too personal matters here. But yeah, I am still human after all. I can't be always okay. No it's not about, Matt or Daddy Allan. Amazingly, we have a peaceful family of three. It's someone I love that can't understand that what I am telling him is all for his goodness.

I hate that every time I try to talk to him about his personal issues, he will misunderstood me. I try to live peacefully. I try to be equal and fair to every body, including him. I love them all, but he don't understand that. He's always saying bad words and swear not to ask for anything from me, but then he always eat his words. And me, I always eat my ego and extend my hands to him. All because I love him and I don't want any conflict, for we are family.

I am torn right now. I want to help him but it seems he will never understand my intentions. In any case, even if he hated me for what I have told him, I am still here for him. No matter what he thinks, I am praying he will realize that his family will always be there no matter what. His friends will leave him at the end of the road, but never his family. I am praying he will realize that all I want is for him to have a better life.

So now, for my own self, I will stop explaining. I will just pray for him.

Still a Happy Monday everyone.

Daily Inspiration: Everything will be Alright

Sunday, November 18, 2012

Good morning! It is always feel good to be at your home where you grew up.. Today is the christening of my sister's little angel. She will also turn one on November 20th so this is a double celebration. Time flies really fast that as if only yesterday we are just two little girls who were together playing with our lutu-lutuan made up of tin can and clay. Now, we are both a wife and a mother. #sentimodeagain

Before I forget, here's our Daily Inspiration.

source
I always try to be a strong person. I try to be positive in the middle of trials and think that everything happens for a reason. At some point, I can't always be strong. I need my family, my husband, my son and most of all God. I need them to give me an assurance that everything will be okay. That's why, in every trial I am facing, I always leave it to God. He is the greatest assurance that everything will be alright.

Have a Blessed Sunday. Don't forget to give phrases and thanks to our Heavenly Father.

Daily Inspiration: Choosing to be Positive

Hello everyone! I almost forgot our Daily Inspiration. I am preoccupied and still, with works and sideline works. I need to finish sending reports but the internet connection won't cooperate. Hey Smart, what's happening with you? This has been days and our connection at home is much worst than this. Added to this is that the computer of our Admin Assistant crashed and we can't open it. The updated reports are all there. She needs to update it now because we need to send report within the day. Yesterday, we were so busy with costing report and thank God we already finished and sent the report just before the clock strike 5pm. Oh my, this week is really packed and is not done then yet because I need to update our master list of quality records. Tomorrow we need to go our hometown for my niece Christening. Yay!

NO. NO. NO. No negativits, only POSITIVE vibes so here's our Daily Inspiration.


Just be positive and grateful. Let us drive negativity away.

Thank God it's Friday!

Photostory: Puzzle Wizard

Thursday, November 15, 2012

This was taken just this morning.


While Daddy and I are having our breakfast, Matt was quietly sitting at our living room. When we were done eating, I approached him and looked at what he was doing. To my surprise, I saw the puzzle above. He do it just by himself and his Tita said he already solved it last night, all by himself. I overheard her telling Matt to look at the colors and combine those with the same color. Matt already recognize almost all the colors so I think that helps him solve the puzzle. Though I just notice that they don't fit in the base but the puzzle parts are okay.

Look likes we will have a puzzle wizard!

The only thing that I don't like is not that well ventilated, warehouse kasi. Also when you go there on the last day, most cheap apparels are already mixed. You need to make a big effort to look at the bulk mixed items in order to find good buys. But what is really good is that they are offering FREE snacks, soft drinks, water, and lunch. So no need to go out to take a break from shopping.

Happy Shopping!

Daily Inspiration: Put Your Heart to Your Work

Good morning everyone! How's your weekend? Mine was super packed as usual. And as always, I love Sundays!

Here's our Daily Inspiration.


Not all of us can get the work that we want. Lucky are those who got a high-paying job that they are enjoying too. I am a Chemist by profession. I love my work and my job right now. I have learned that salary alone is not what gives us satisfaction. It is when you enjoy and love your work that gives me the will to go to work each day. Yes, I am still hoping to be a stay at home mom and when that time comes, I will surely miss my work, my colleagues and my company. I already put my heart to it and I am sure I will have hard time taking it with me.

Happy Monday!

Daily Inspiration: Life is an Arrow

Saturday, November 10, 2012

Good morning!!! Finally, it's Saturday and tomorrow is Sunday. Haha. It's not really obvious that I am waiting for weekends. Actually, days passed by so quick and fast because I am really busy. It's like I went to work just the sun rising up and with just a blink, the sun is setting down. 

So, it's Saturday and as usual we still have to report for work for a half day. To inspire us more, here's our Daily Inspiration.


As the famous line "targetin ang iyong pangarap", you should aim for your dreams. You must not restrain yourself from drawing closer to your dreams. Let yourself go and you will never regret it.

Happy Saturday!

No Water! Help...

Last week before the long weekend, we have experienced shortage in water supply here in our laboratory. Thus, almost all of our analysis stopped since these require water. Imagine how hard it could be washing glass wares and even going to the comfort room without water.

According to our Maintenance Department, the water pump is not working well and needs to be replaced. We have experienced no water supply for days though they will let the water pump run for awhile so we could save a little water.

Those staffs living inside the plant had a hard time taking bath, washing the dishes and doing the laundry. We were joking on them if they have taken a bath since there's no water supply. Fortunately, the next day, we saw blue large drums in front of each department. Our management decided to buy water from the municipal city so that we could have something to use. Still, we can't run our analysis because we need continuous water flowing through our equipments.

Oh, I could stand living without electricity but not without water supply. So imagine  how delighted we are seeing water pouring from the faucet. Thank God there's this long weekend so the Maintenance department can work double time fixing the water pump. In this time, I wish we have this plumbing calgary that could do the work really fast. They are professionals and work really great, fast and neatly. That way, it won't took us days to bring the water supply back.


Water is really important so we must save and conserve it.
