Planting Seed of Hope

I just realized, I've been teaching for a decade already. It is such a great fulfillment to see some of my past students living a kind of life that they truly deserves, in the same manner, I also felt sorry for those who were not able to make it to their dreams.

Until now, I am still doing the business of meddling with their lives. Just like a concerned mother, I never run out of tested and proven pieces of advice. However, not all of them are receptive enough in heeding because they want to live their life according to what can make them happy. Honestly, I also came to a point of giving up on reminding them, nurturing them because for me, it's just another case of vain effort.

But how can I just neglect them when it is very evident that there is a greater need for teachers who can empathize with them. After all, not all of them are playing deaf to all my reprimands, reminders and warnings. As a matter of fact, there are few who will just approach me unexpectedly to thank me for the gesture of concern when they were still with me. It brings me joy somehow. And these are the kind of students who will then be a living example to others. I use their stories for others to learn.

I am a teacher indeed who must continue to plant the seed of hope even if others will just simply ignore it because I am equally hopeful that within the four corners of the classroom, there is at least one soul who will heed my call and become successful someday.

I'll just wait for them to see me, and perhaps, to thank me that once in their lives, there is this school teacher who spend a minute or two of her time reprimanding them, scolding them and punishing them with tons of activities for them to grow and realized that indeed going to school is an investment for their future and no one should declare total bankruptcy.

One Year Is Over- Wazz Up with Yolanda Victims?

One year is over since the horrific Yolanda killed thousand of lives as well as hope of many Filipinos. As far as I could remember, tons of help came from foreign countries in a form of goods and cash. There are also many NGO's who took the effort for relief operations. However, not all victims were given financial assistance. In fact, many of them were not able to regain from total loss. Has the government helped those in dire need, there will be no rallies that could be seen in the commemoration of the tragedy right now.

I could only hope that the government will be serious enough in answering their needs.

Deep within most of us lies a sincere desire to express our individuality. Individual expression may not be appropriate in certain work or social settings. However, your home is the prefect place to be as individualistic as you desire. Most likely, you've browsed through magazines and seen room designs and furniture that is attractive, but not precisely what you would create for yourself. Sometimes, one piece of furniture can be the statement piece in your home that epitomizes your style. You can learn more about custom furniture pieces at a place such as Adobe Interiors.

Trick or Treat?

Everywhere, and perhaps in the whole wide world, people are celebrating the Halloween with "Trick or Treat". I forgot the exact place where it was originated but it's impact was so huge that most people are adopting it.

Some religious belief abhor such celebration but as for me, it really doesn't matter as long as people are just doing it for fun and not out of rituals.

Elevate the Luxury of a Bedroom Without Breaking the Budget

Interior designers typically emphasize the importance of simplicity when decorating a bedroom. Whether it's a master bedroom or guest room, you want to create a serene, tranquil atmosphere that encourages such a state of relaxation that sleep comes easily. Including too many accessories in the bedroom will make it look cluttered and too visually busy to be relaxing. Because a bedroom requires less accessorizing than some other rooms, you have the chance to focus most of your attention on the bedding. Since the bed is often the focal point of the room, the bed covering you choose can actually function as an artistic part of the room decor.

Bed in a Bag

Sometimes, it's easy to forget that the decor of the guest rooms needs to be updated. This is especially true if you seldom have overnight guests. If you find yourself in a position where guests will be arriving at a time when your schedule doesn't permit leisurely shopping and your budget is a little tight, one of the quickest and most budget-friendly ways to update the guest room decor is to shop now for a bed in a bag set. With this one purchase you have everything you need to create a unified design for the focal point of the room.

The master bedroom is your personal haven. Your bed should a luxurious place to rest at the end of the day. The bed covering you select should feature a design that you feel epitomizes your personality, passion or individual design style.

Can You Defy Anxiety?

No matter how hard we try not to get anxious about life's circumstances, still our inner self just cannot conceal it. Telling ourselves not to worry is easier said than done.

But if we have firmer knowledge about our stand before God, worrying can be just a clause or phrase that won't really get into our way. Everything could be under control knowing that somebody UP THERE takes care of it.

Sometimes, I tend to worry a lot especially if the situation involves my loved ones. I worried too much that I forgot to pray. And when I remember to pray, still my anxiety keeps on overwhelming me.

Worrying is a sign of distrust. Not to anyone else but to our God who is the source of everything. When we trust someone, we should not care to worry. However, sometimes, our prayers become futile because right after we talk to God, our anxiety consumes much of our thoughts. Well, maybe, we should stop worrying by establishing a right attitude in our heart. 

So the next time we worry, let's try to check what causes our anxiety and what makes it too difficult for us to let go of this anxiety. The answer could be in our attitude of accepting the possible outcome. Well, if our worries has something to do with life being at stake, why not entrust it all to our Creator who is the owner of our life? After all, everything in our life happens for a reason.

Let's defy anxiety by letting God to have the total control of everything- He knows best!
