Family Matters

Family, matters...
Time heals the wound that was brought by our past experiences- those that were beyond our control. 

I have a big family. So big that I cannot name most of my sisters/brothers from another mother. Except for the second family. 
I can still remember how I used hating them when I was still toO young to understand the complexity of life  and our family situation.
When I got married and got a family of my own, things changed a little bit. That hatred was gone but the animosity remains. But thanks to Social media- for making the world smaller. We befriended on facebook. But we seldom communicate. In short, I was never a good sister to them. I never hanged out with them. For me, they're just like an old acquaintances, as if we don't have the same father... 
When I heard from my brother that one  of my half sisters got admitted for leukemia, I was even hesitant to visit her. Only last Thursday night that I finally got to visit her. I never thought that was our first and final encounter. She died a day after.
When I got the call from my brother I suddenly felt some guilt. I have so many "I wish I could" phrases in my mind.
I wish...
But it was too late.
And it hurts me.

Knowing Thy Self

There are many points in our lives that we thought we know ourselves better than anyone else- and why not? It is our life after all. However, it is not always the case for most of us. Ask your sons or daughters, or any of your relatives and friends how you are to them- then only then we can get a hint on who we really are. Apart from being judged or misjudged by others- it is them who can really tell who we are. It shows in the way we act, the things we said, and how we impacted the people around us.

For me, I cannot deny the fact that I do not know myself that much. There are times that I am who I  presumed I was. But, it was the opposite thing for others. I thought I am a gentle Mom but when others heard me scolding my kids, I am not who I thought I was. I thought I was a loving wife but seeing my husband doing all the chores I am supposed to be doing-then it changes everything. I can only see the selfish me, the arrogant me and the insensitive me.

Knowing thyself huh?

Ditch the Label, Be Real!

This video caught my attention big time. This is the reality. This is us. We are so accustomed to the lie we created on Social Media. We rather pretend because we are overly conscious of what others will think and say. But for how long shall we tolerate this kind of lies?

Isn't it the right time to, indeed, DITCH THE LABEL!
Let's be REAL!

Trusting No One But God

In this very chaotic world, it's hard to entrust our life to anyone. Even relatives have the tendency to break one's trust to each other. Clearly, God's message tells us that we can simply put our trust on Him with all our hearts, mind, and soul. However, we are sometimes overcome with our doubts. And with that, we need more faith in entrusting our life to Our Creator.

Cheap Ways to Prepare Your House for the Summer

With summer right around the corner, now is the time to start thinking about how you'll turn your home into a safe haven against all of the heat and humidity. Luckily, this guide will outline just a handful of ways in which you can effectively and, perhaps more importantly, affordably alter your home into a cool wonderland for your friends and family. 

Invest in Air Filtering Plants

By strategically placing certain plants around your house, you can dramatically improve the air quality and ensure that your family won't have a hard time breathing properly. For the bets results, try to use plants like spider plants and snake plants, and then place them near places like your bathroom where better air flow will be most welcomed. 

Look for Repair Opportunities

AIR ON TIME ACAlthough you might be worried about the cost of replacing outdated or old air conditioner units, there are better alternatives. For instance, companies like Air on Time AC can help with AC repair Tomball Texas and actually save you money in the long run. Instead of buying a completely new air conditioner unit, repairing an existing one can potentially save you a considerable amount of money, all while still providing your family with the same refreshing air that you've come to expect during the summertime. 

Similarly, you should keep an eye out on your refrigerator now before any serious issues develop. Try cleaning out the condensing coils before the summer rolls around, so that you can ensure your family won't have to worry about cold refreshments when it gets particularly warm out. 

Pay Attention to Fan Settings

As useful as air conditioner units may be, fans can also provide a relaxing atmosphere on a hot day. If you play around with the settings, and make sure that the fan is set to rotate counter-clockwise, then you can actually develop a nice temperate environment throughout your house. When the fans rotate counter-clockwise, it causes the hot and cool air to mix, which results in the enjoyable effect.

The summer is all about enjoying time with your friends and family, so don't let dealing with the temperature bring you down too much. As long as you stick with these ideas, and maybe even pursue some of your own, you'll be sure to have a great time throughout the summer.
