Time Management Made Easy

Sometimes managing our own time is not that easy as we think. We have to make sure we know our priorities. For me, being employed in a public school, working with my blog, studying masters degree and working as Sunday school teacher and supporting ministries at church is really difficult. It really requires great determination. In my case, I'm having a hard time to finish one single task because I make sure I've done my best in all tasks. But time flies so fast, so we have to make sure
we can accomplish the job just right in time.

There are some unexpected events that comes along the way- that will completely ruin your scheduled or planned activities. Some unexpected guest that visits you at home, some events that needs to be attended or additional task that is given to you unexpectedly. These are the factors that will surely affect your planners' to do lists.

So here are some of the things to do:
1. Do it right and slowly. No matter how hard or complicated it is, you will still pay attention to the details. Because when you do it in a hurry, you might end up doing it again.

2. Pay attention to time. As much as possible have a wrist watch attached to you always. The more conscious you are with the time, the more you can equally divide the the task according to it's allotted time.

3. (If you can) do it ahead of time. If you want to finish the task on time, well you probably sacrifice some of your wee hours of nap. Well, this is just temporary. You have to find time to do things or tasks ahead the deadline . You must sacrifice some of your vacant time. It will lessen your stress (trust me!).

4. Leave your friends (just kidding). Well, avoid distractions. That's the best thing to do.

5. Do all things heartily. When you are happy doing all the things you planned, You will no longer feel the burden in doing it. Enjoy what you're doing. That's the best key.

Keep going everyone. Happy working! God bless you always.

Reviving my "Me Time"

Life is a journey filled with different lessons. There are times that these life lessons leaved a special space in our hearts. Some of these life-lessons are joy, hardships, heartaches and unforgettable moments. Mostly we are preoccupied with busyness that we forget to laugh and be joyful.

My friend, we only live once so make use of it. For me, it's a kind of "therapeutic" for me when I spend time with myself and do the things I love to do- I called it my "me time". Some resourceful activities we want to do in our me time are painting, drawing and singing. I can do all that except singing and playing the musical instrument. (It is my childhood frustrations). In that case, I might secure the toby keith 35 biggest hits songbook to learn strumming. In that way I could fully understand playing music instruments.

I tell you, if you have with you your paintbrush,canvass, guitar and biggest hit songbook- your me time would be very perfect. Keep going everyone. God bless.

I'll still Believe in Forever

Hahaha I was watching one of the most loved "tele-drama" here in the Philippines. It is very popular TV Series here.Today is the most awaited ending.Many were saddened because they can no longer watch their favorite show.
I'm not a fan, but I used to watch it. Well, the series is a typical type of love story.It ends very well- as usual the "they live happily ever after" just happened again. The guy confesses that she still love the girl and they both admit that they still love each other. I'm not the protagonist (type) here, but the story was close to impossible (after all that happened) I cannot elaborate how the story goes.

It is entitled "Forevemore" (it became a popular word after the airing of the drama)- so naturally the director should stick to its title- to give the audience a forevermore ending. But one thing this drama contribute on how I perceive life is this... (maybe) there is forever.
In my human nature of thinking, I don't believe in forever. High school friends will part ways sooner or later, you will surely find the end of the scotch tape, the flowing water in the river will surely find it's sea and man will die in it's appointed time. That's why it's so hard for me to believe in forever. Or maybe this my simplest way of preparing my heart for abandonment. I've known a friend who is very scared of being abandoned and I realized that we have the same fear. I don't want people to go, all I want is for them to stay- to keep them for forever. But what I'm thinking is surreal. People just come and go. Or maybe this is simply rooted of all the past hurts and abandonment of the people who I truly love and cherished- and they just go and leave me broken. Whatever my reason is in not believing if "forever", I wanna dug it down and leave it die. I wanna believe again that somebody will truly love me, cherish me and keep me. Many people had already found it and some (like me) might still be searching for it. At this point in my life, I still want to believe that there's still forever. There will be.... I'll give love a chance.

P.S at this moment in my life, I thank my Heavenly Father for letting me know and keeping me reminded that He is the one who loves me "forever". There is God who forever love you.

Keep going everyone. God bless.

An Overly Obsessed of Order is a Disorder

Have you heard about OCD or many called it an Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. Some may not noticed it that they already possessed this kind of disorder. And I am one of them...

At first I don't really have the idea about this kind of disorder, but I think it's getting worse. My friends and I usually crack jokes about it. We call ourselves "OCs" whenever we do or perform some projects. When we pay attention into details, we call ourselves "OC".

What is OCD? (for you to understand what I'm talking about). Thanks to Google I found the perfect definition... "
"Obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD) is an anxiety disorder with intrusive thoughts and repetitive behaviors due to fear or paranoia. It can produce uneasiness, apprehension, worry (obsessions), aimed at reducing the associated anxiety (compulsions), or a combination of such obsessions and compulsions." This means it is an anxiety disorder characterized by uncontrollable, unwanted thoughts and repetitive, ritualized behaviors you feel compelled to perform. If you have OCD, you probably recognize that your obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviors are irrational – but even so, you feel unable to resist them and break free.
Compulsions are behaviors or rituals that you feel driven to act out again and again. Usually, compulsions are performed in an attempt to make obsessions go away.

Most people with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) fall into one of the following categories:

Washers are afraid of contamination. They usually have cleaning or hand-washing compulsions.
Checkers repeatedly check things (oven turned off, door locked, etc.) that they associate with harm or danger.
Doubters and sinners are afraid that if everything isn’t perfect or done just right something terrible will happen or they will be punished.
Counters and arrangers are obsessed with order and symmetry. They may have superstitions about certain numbers, colors, or arrangements.
Hoarders fear that something bad will happen if they throw anything away. They compulsively hoard things that they don’t need or use.

In my case, I'm afraid, but I noticed that I fall under "counters and arrangers". I have this impulsive that constantly organize things in a certain way. I always keep things in order. I keep things in it's proper place. You might think that it's normal. We all want order and cleanliness as always. But for me, Seeing some things not in place or messed and failing to do it (arranging it) causes me frustrations. My family members at home failed to understand my need of order. I nag and get mad most of the time if I see things on the bed, objects on the floor, disarrange rugs, unthrown trash inside the room and etc. And I got frustrated every time I see disorder. At that moment, I feel that there is an urgency to clean and arrange it over and over again- even if I'll be doing it for forever. And also observed that often times I washed my hands... oh no, I hope it's not another symptom. :(

I felt sorry for my family for being this way. I just can't help it. I know it's all in the mind. But my emotions and feelings are already affected. I don't know when it started and I don't know how to stop it. If you have the same situation and if you go through the same things as mine, you are very free to comment. You might be a great help. If you already overcome this disorders, then, your helpful tips are very welcome here.
