Th Art of Moving On

“In order to move on, you must understand why you felt what you did and why you no longer need to feel it.” — Mitch Albom

I've known many people who have been hurt by people they love and cared. And moving on is just so hard to do. The questions on when and how to start is way too difficult to answer. I'm not just talking about relationship between the opposite sex,  but I'm talking about in general-it's either the parent-child relationship, friendship or any forms of relationships.

We cannot change the fact that we are hurt. But, the way we act after hurting is a different story. It needs courage to handle the sandness and loneliness that it may caused you. Be brave, life's trials are designed to make us tougher and strong. I am not an expert, but let me help you cope up with emotional stress. Here's my "claimed" steps in moving on.

1. Cry. It's either on your favorite pillow or a stranger's shoulder (just kidding). But if it helps, go on. You need some hug.

2. Pray. Talk to God. It will lessen the pain and burden if you've talked about it. Lucky for you if you found a friend who's willing to be a friend "through ups and downs".

To be continued....

Summer Fun Workshop Recital

Train up a child the way he should go and when he is old, he will not depart from it.~Proverbs 22:6
We are molding our future generation. We are the one who influence and  gives greater impact to our young generation. Let's start by doing simple act of goodness to them that their going to impart also to their children in the future.

The moment we started our "Summer Fun Workshop 2016"activity in our church, I felt so hesitant and excited at the same time. Hesitant, because we have a lot of things to prepare, but excited because we know we can impart our talents to the kids. We started from the month of April-May (every Saturday). The workshop is for the kids to learn the musical instruments and arts like painting and drawing. Kids who enrolled in arts are taught how to draw, paint and do some crafts. While those who enrolled in the music class are trained on how to play the instruments like guitar, keyboard and drums (basic and advanced).It's so fascinating to see them learn and play the instruments. Musical instrument players deserves the best musical instruments. Upgrade your musical instruments, for learners and music guru, checkout guitar center plano. It is the right place where you can find the great selection of guitars, basses, keyboards, drums, percussions and etc.

It is very overwhelming to be part of this significant activity. Finally, May 15 is the day for our "Recital". I am very emotional and overwhelmed seeing those kids showcasing their talents by presenting an artwork and playing the different musical instruments. It paids off our effort and sacrifices. I can see to those kids the future of potential artists- great artists indeed. I can see a generation who are passionate in music and arts. I am rooting to those talented kids. I hope that those kids are willing to step up and build a generation of artists who are willing to use their talents to serve others and most especially to offer their talents to God.

Keep going everyone. Enjoy your remaining weeks for an enjoyable and memorable summer activities. God bless. :)

One Vote, One Leader, One Future

I am breaking my silence with regards to the  Philippine politics and the upcoming National Election this May 9. I couldn't take it anymore. I am so sick and tired seeing news of "black propaganda" in all my news feeds in Twitter, Facebook and other social media accounts. It is so frustrating that people are divided according to it's "political-party-colors" (e.i. Red, Yellow, Blue, White) The sad truth, these colors in the Philippine flag should unite people, but this time it divides. These  four colors are united in one flag- the Philippine flag.

What is really going on? This campaign period really sucks. Many good friends unfriended each other because the other one says against the candidate he/she's supporting and vice versa. I don't really express directly about my political views and I couldn't endorse or campaign directly for a specific candidate since I am a teacher- and it is against the law. But I would express my random rants here in my blog.
Yes, there are great people who qualified to run as President- and I don't question their educational credibility. All the presidentiable have great educational backgrounds, Some came from a well-off family. Indeed, they do have flaws but I am not rooting for educational background and flaws of candidates to prove their credibility. I am rooting for  a leader who has the heart to embrace his/her "responsibility", who love his country and who has the "servant heart" (of course credible enough in all aspects). This country and its people are so sick and tired of a "traditional" politician who (not all but some) give all  promises just for the sake of "good public image". People are all sick and tired corrupt government and isip-talangka  (crab mentality) of some government officials. The country  becomes the home of the ugliest mudslinging political campaign. This kind of  mudslinging snit fight must stop.

People of the Republic of the Philippines want to have real change. We are demanding for a clean government. We want a leader who has the genuine intentions to change this country... to suppress crime, drugs and corruption. I want a leader who implements good governance and discipline. I want a leader who thinks and decides not for himself but for the benefit of the Filipino people. We want a government not just for the elites but for the lowly and the ordinary.

I believe, my vote counts. I am voting not for myself but for my future generation. This is our time to wake up. If you truly love your country, I urge you not to sell your votes. It is our freedom to choose, don't allow money to influence your freedom & decision in choosing the right leader. The power is in our hands- the power to choose the next President of the Republic of the Philippines.
Please, be A RESPONSIBLE VOTER! Always keep in mind that your One VOTE will define the fate of a LEADER and that  one LEADER could change our destiny... our FUTURE.
So VOTE WISELY! #PiliPinas2016

Keep going everyone. Let's all pray for a peaceful and truthful election :)
