The choice of a profession is undoubtedly one of the important things to consider nowadays. I have been a bit sad in the past few days since my son has to go back to our hometown to pursue his college studies. He has been having a hard time making up his mind on what course to take. I always told him to carefully mull over this matter because this will be his stepping stone in molding his future. The right choice of profession will determine the right occupation he will have in the future. In this day of specialization, we should hone our skill and talent to be competitive enough in the growing numbers of highly competitive job seekers. We have to nurture our passion. We have to acquire an edge so we have something to trade. A lot of companies these days pay high compensation to skilled and knowledgeable employees. They are an asset to the company. But of course, it is not the only basis for getting hired. A lot other factors also affect on getting the job. You should also possess the right attitude. Sometimes, the hiring personnel wouldn’t give you the position even though you have excellent credentials to go along with if they assessed that you have an attitude problem. From there and then, they will turn you down. Personality still takes an essential place above all. We should also improve ourselves in this area and we can definitely get ahead.
I remember, in my childhood, our parents would always scold us and punish us for our misbehavior and misconduct. Back then, I still didn’t understand why they had to do it. But while growing up, I eventually understood that they are shaping us to be a responsible individual with high regard in moral values and standards. We developed our personality through and by their examples. They are not perfect people but they are great parents to us. We had learned a lot of lessons from them that until now we are also handing it down to our own children.
As my eldest child is on to his new journey in life, I just hope and pray that he will become the best person we want him to be.
A sure bet, we have been angry in our existence here on Earth and the reason could be of different extremities. It is like hell to be consumed of anger and we could do a lot of undeniably foolish things when at this state. I for one is guilty about this. I do not know if I already have the so-called anger management problem but recently I get easily annoyed and eventually flare up. I am so not like this and I attributed my recent outburst to stress, financial issues and familial situations. Things have been rough for me nowadays and even though how hard I try to get calm and positive still it gets on my nerves.
Anger is a hidden monster that can bring you to destruction. As I have read some articles about anger, it is regrettable to do and say things when we are angry because things could be horribly at its worst. I don’t want to harbor this kind of feeling in me so I really want to have self-control over this matter. Anger could lead to hatred. Hatred to resentment and so on and so forth. There will be a horrendous integration of negative emotions that if left unchecked could lead to depression. And I have been through it, and I do not want to be in that situation again. I want to get rid of this monster lurking in the shadow of my sane mind waiting for a chance to devour me leaving me like in a trance to start berating and loosing control over my detestable temper!
New house, new place, new neighbors, new friends, a new beginning.
How I wish that while we have moved to a new house, things will work out differently. This is a time to start anew. A renewed strength to keep our family moves forward to be more happy, content, solid, peaceful and harmonious. To let go of past hurts, pain, mistakes, misunderstandings, fights etc. Time to let go of all the negativity that happens. May love be always present in our home. Things had been rough in the past months where everybody has its own business to care of and kept us all wrapped up to the point of annoyance that really makes everyone so grumpy at home. Luckily, by God’s grace, we were able to resolve all issues that have been getting on our nerves. I’m just so thankful that God is always faithful in His promises. Even though I am not pleasing Him in the past months, still he never leaves us. I can feel His eminent presence by all the graces and blessings he is showering upon us and I praise God for always providing us for our needs. His grace is sufficient, indeed!
I feel so blessed despite all the odds because I know that God is bigger and mightier than any problem that we encounter. I know there will still be more challenges in the way but I feel uplifted with the fact that I have a Heavenly Father who oversees everything for me and my family. To God be the glory, honor and praise!
