Daily Inspiration: Slow to Anger

Good morning! Mommy Maye is not feeling well today but since it's Friday and it's our reporting day, I need to go to work. Yesterday was a holiday and as usual Matt and I had a bonding time. As in, everywhere I go, he follows. 

I just have a little problem with him these past days. Matt will wake up in the middle of the night crying out loud. That scares me because it seems he's having a nightmare. Also, he acts differently when we are around (mom and dad). He used to be always understanding but now he's showing tantrums already. He will cry out loud when he don't get what he wants. I feel exhausted every time he do that. Her Tita said he is not like that when they are left alone. Hey mommies, please help me understand it. Got to read something about it soon.

Oh before I forget, here's our Daily Inspiration for today.

I really need this reminder much. I should take it slow especially being angry. I need it to deal with my son's terrible two stage. I want him to understand more and be patient as much as possible. 

Have you notices that our daily inspiration yesterday is also about anger? Sometimes no matter how we avoid anger, situations won't cooperate so I constantly remind myself about all these inspirations about anger. I find them helpful and I hope you find it helpful too.

Happy TGIF!

Daily Inspiration: Anger

Good morning! I am happy I don't need to go to work now because it's a holiday again in Bulacan. It's Marcelo H. Del Pilar day. But Daddy Allan need to go to work because they will have Internal Quality Audit so that I am left with my hyper-cute little son.

Oh, before I forget here's our Daily Inspiration.

We had a speaker in our ISO seminar that told us he avoided anger and that it was years now. From the way he talked, it seemed so easy not to be angry but he did. So it is very possible to not get angry. Then I try to do that too and manage to go on for almost a week, then after that I quit because I felt I am becoming unstable, haha. But it felt good to not feel anger for days and I was happier.

Have you tried also to avoid being angry?

Happy Thursday!

Daily Inspiration: Treat Your Parents with Loving Care

Good Morning guys!

Sharing with this Daily Inspiration.

If you still have both of your parents with you, then you are very lucky. Well, I am still lucky because I have my mother. It is not easy to losea father because of all the important occasions of my life that requires his presence. He missed my wedding day and the day I gave birth to my son. I feel sad whenever I think why he will never see my son who most people said, his look-a-like.

Just in this moment when something is really bothering me, I wish he is still here. For I know if he still here, he will never allow this to happen. I know he will be the strong man I used to know and he will never want us to get hurt. Oh, I wish he is here to assure us that everything will be okay even just by the look in his eyes. He is never a perfect father but when he was gone, part of me also died.

But hey, I am here to inspire you. So I know I should trust God and his plan, which is way better than I am thinking. I still have my mother and that I know my father will be happy to see her happy. I bowed to love and take care of my mother until the day they will see each other again. Loving and taking care of her will never be enough for all the sacrifices she had.

So if you still have both your parents with you, don't waste time to show how much you love them. Because time is indefinite and it might surprise you and caught you unguarded. Love and take care of your parents because that's the best thing we can ever give them in return for all their sacrifices.

Happy Wednesday.

Photostory: My Little Cutie Pie

Here's my little cuti pie. Super cute Matthew! 

I had a hard time doing household chores because he follows me everywhere I go. That's why I can't have rest while I am at home but seeing him so happy being with mommy is more than enough to make me feel better.

Back to work again tomorrow. Enjoy the rest of the day!

Daily Inspiration: Law of Karma

Hello everyone! While I am typing this, my little son is doing everything just to make him notice. He is always an early bird. Daddy and I slept almost one in the morning because of crocheting. My little son woke up at 6am so as much as I wanted to sleep I can't because he keeps on singing and saying "mommy loves", then kiss me. Who can't resist that?

Anyway, I have to share a Daily Inspiration to you so here it is.
photo source

I believe in Karma and that life is an echo. Whatever you give life, life will give it back to you. So as much as you can, be kind and treat others the way you want them to treat you. Play with other people's feelings and you will surely get a double dose of your own medicine.

So be kind, even others do not, even others can not and even others will not.

Have a blessed Sunday!

Daily Inspiration: "Imperfect Couple"

Good morning! Thank God it's Sabado!

Here's our Daily Inspiration.

photo source

So true. There's no perfect couple nor a perfect relationship. At the start of every marriage, there will always be something you will not agree about. It is not always you have the same thoughts and likes. But in the process, you will learn to accept each other's differences and love each other more even with the flaws each has. That is when a great marriage comes.

Enjoy your Saturday! It's another long weekend, but not yet for me because I am still here at work.

Daily Inspiration: Money Isn't Everything

Hello guys! How's your morning? I hope you started it well.

Here's our Daily Inspiration for today.

Who doesn't want money? But too much of it won't really be of good help. The want for money sometimes turns to greediness. Only to realize in the end, that money isn't everything.

I want money but just enough for my family to live comfortably. I am working hard to give the best for my son but spending quality time with him is still my top priority. Because I can never take back time and I am afraid that one day, my son will never remember any precious moments he had with me and his dad. That will surely break my heart.

So, I am not saying forget about money but rather don't make it as your priority. Remember money can't buy everything and you can never bring them with you when you die.

Happy Friday! Hello long weekend!

    Photostory: Matt & Gelai

    Sharing with you this photo of Matt and his cousin Gelai.

    I don't know why Gelai would want to grab Matt as if she sees a cute bear. Haha. She actually screamed in excitement and reached out for Matt here. She pulled his hair but the poor little boy do nothing. He don't fight back and just evade. 

    Should I be alarmed that my little Matt doesn't fight back? I have seen twice an older boy hurt my son, too fast I don't get to stop them. I have seen Matt left in amaze why he was hurt. He never fight back and now I fear when he goes to school and he meets a bully. I wonder why there are bullies and what their parents are doing. Anyway, I always pray to keep my son safe and I know God will protect him.

    Do you also fear the same for your child? Or is you child already bullied? Please don't hesitate to share. Thanks!

    Daily Inspiration: Keep Distance

    Hi everyone! We must face reality and it's back to work again. How's your long weekend? Ours was great and as I already said, we really don't get to rest because we went back to our home town. The travel hour was 4-5 hours because of the traffic in every towns in Bulacan and Nueva Ecija. I hope, the bypass road from Balagtas to Cabanatuan will be finished soon for shorter travel time. Anyway, we enjoyed the long weekend and there's another long weekend to look forward again. Yey!

    Of course, I will never forget to give you our Daily Inspiration and here's for today.

    photo source
    Keeping distance make you see those things you overlook when you are standing close with each other. I will share a little of our love story without Daddy Allan's permission. We are best of friends since high school but we know each other since kindergarten. We went to same schools from kindergarten to college. I graduated ahead of him because his thesis was not yet through. After graduation we seldom see each other and that made us realize and see what we fail to see being always close together. I bet you already get what is we finally realize. Lol.

    Same is true with other relationship. Sometimes, it makes sense to move a little away and keep a distance. You will learn who really cares for you if they notice you are drifting away. They will see the space you have created and of course if that space is important with them, then they will feel your importance too.

    Have a happy Wednesday!

    Short Term Health Insurance: A Better Way to Protect your Family

    Like any other mother, I want to make sure that my family is always safe. However, as much as I wanted to, I cannot avoid accidents and other catastrophe to happen. That thinking made me realize that I should protect my family more than ever and also be prepared with the expenses. But, surgeries and other medical operations are very expensive nowadays so having an insurance plan will surely be of good help.

    I remember when my son got into a burn accident. That incident made me realize that I should get my family a health insurance plan. In any case, I don't need to worry about the expenses and assured that my family members will get the best medical attention they will need. But I pray God forbids any accident and keep my family always safe.

    In search of a good health plan, I came across a short term health insurance plan. Yes, there’s a short term health insurance plan available now and this will be very helpful to people with special needs. The plan will cover your needs for a shorter period of time. You can compare short term health insurance offers to get what’s best for you. Learn more here of what short term health insurance plan is available in your place.

    Always remember, that the safety of our family comes first. Keep your family always protected.

    Daily Inspiration: Never Say Sorry

    Good day everyone! At long last it's Saturday. After hours now, we will be at Nueva Ecija. Yey!

    Before I'll take my long weekend, let me give you this Daily Inspiration.

    I am thinking about this. Makes me wonder, okay given that you are right but how about if you hurt other's feelings by saying the truth. Anyway, maybe it just implies that never regret saying the truth even if it hurts. What do you think?

    Parenting Tips: Educate Your Child To Be Happy

    Let me share this with you moms and dads.

    photo source
    Being a working mom, I fear that I may not teach my son the right way. I mean, I am working outside home from 7am to 6pm and that makes me feel insecure most of the times. The fact that my son now slowly understand where mom and dad are going and what we are doing all day makes me realize that he needs more of our attention. That's why I really don't bring work at home. I see to it that when we are at home, our attention is with him all the time. 

    I make him feel he is love and happiness is far more important than any material things on earth. I also teach him to appreciate little things. I don't teach him what is ugly or beautiful because I want him to not discriminate anything or anyone, and make him see everything as beautiful. I know it's natural for us to know what's beautiful or not so I let him learn it his way.

    Okay, it's a fact that every parent wants the best for their children, so do I. I honestly want to give my son all the best in this world. But we should not forget that children appreciates more what money can't buy and that's our time. Don't tell them you are busy with work to raise money and be rich. This will inculcate in their young minds. Instead teach them to be happy even with the little things around them. In that way, they will learn to value things and would never look at the price.

    Enjoy the rest of day! TGIF!
