How to Live our Life to the Fullest?

This is one of the most often asked question and yet some could still not comprehend the meaning of this cliché.

To some, having everything you need and want in life is a guarantee that you could really live your life to the fullest! Well, I beg to disagree because there are those who have less in life yet was able to make a great impact to the universe, if I may exaggerate.

Living life to the fullest does not depend solely on your possessions, it's more on your position in life- not the literal one but much deeper than what we think. When I say position it means differently.

Position of your priorities. Are you on the right track? Are your priorities carefully planned by you or you're just among those who live in "come what may" mindset?

Position of your giftings or your talents. What did you do about your talents? Are you making use of them for others or you just keep it to yourself? 

Position of your attitude- or most likely, position of your heart. Is your heart okay. There might be some negativity that's trying to pull you down. Are you holding grudges against someone? Are you having inferiority complex? Insecurities? Our emotion plays a vital role in our daily existence. What we feel often resonates with how we behave and how we treat others.

We cannot live our Life to the fullest when we do not reconcile with our very own self. When we could not overcome our shortcomings, and when we could not ease up the burdens in our heart. 

Dealing lots of life's issues? Look up and cast all your burdens to God.

 Be blessed.

My Journey as a Blogger

    Dominant as I am, I always speak what's on my mind. Perhaps, being a teacher also influence the way I express myself. My hubby always relies on me when it comes to decision-making because according to him, I am more practical compared to him. Well, he is absolutely right. In our school, I also have an influence when it comes to decision making as to what's good and what's not to purchase. Influencing others with what you believe is a real challenge for a typical blogger like me. This is what prompts me to create a blog way back in 2008.  

    For more than a decade of blogging, I am truly overwhelmed with how I was able to influence others. As a Mom blogger, I am fond of blogging about family issues, family concerns, parenting, and the like. I love to share what I found to be worth sharing when it comes to child-rearing. My experience also taught me a lot of things that is why I am confident enough on what to share on my blog. Indeed, blogging becomes an outlet for me when I want to address my thoughts to a bigger audience. Blogging also taught me to write things that bother me or excites me! What excites me the most is when I am getting feedback, comments from my readers. I also get the chance to meet my fellow bloggers and befriend them and was able to join a blogging community who are willing to support one another by giving helpful ideas about blogging especially for an ordinary blogger like me. I may not be a famous blogger but at least I am able to share my thoughts with the world.

    When I got married barely 10 years ago, the first two years were what I could consider as the peak of my blogging career with so many opportunities coming from different sponsors. Indeed, blogging at that time became a good source of income. I was able to pay rent and buy groceries. However, during my second pregnancy which was eight months after I had my first child, I barely got opportunities because I seldom update my blog. From three blog accounts, I gave up my two other blogs because I cannot manage them anymore due to my motherhood roles while working at the same time. Then I was assigned to teach Educational Technology among students taking up Education. My passion for blogging was revived thus I inspired and encouraged my students to create their own blog too. It was a great fulfillment for me to see some of my students pursuing blogs and having them among my followers. I even have one student who was really very good at writing which remains a blogger up to now. I felt so rewarded when they sent me messages retelling the good experiences they enjoyed upon blogging.
    Right now, I am slowly encouraging myself to go back to my first love, which is writing. And I am all the more encourage to blog because of some opportunities which I could consider as a real blessing for me. Before I used to have one sponsor that gave me at least three per month opportunities before but since the pandemic started, it was stopped and I could never blame them. I am just so glad that I stumbled upon the work of Lindsay Detwiler, the famous blogger, and I was totally inspired by her passion as a blogger. Her work influenced me to push further and rekindle my passion for writing. Indeed, she is a very effective influencer for giving me such inspiration. Now I have all the reasons to revive my blog and have my ideas be shared with the whole world!

What I Learned From Tiktok App

I might be a late bloomer but I've just downloaded and installed the Tiktok App. The initial intention was just for compliance actually to the requirements of one of my sponsors. But as I browsed through different posts, I was amazed with those tutorial posts, mostly technical one like computer manipulation. Mind you, I've tried each of those tips they gave and it actually works! There's also this fitness coach that posted easy  to follow exercises, isn't it a good app after all?

Be the judge!

One Day at The Beach

If you are looking for a place to spend your summer with even just for a day, I highly recommend the Alibuag Beach Resorts  at Sugbongcogon, Misamis Oriental. I was with my colleague and her family, and that was my second time to go there. I am more excited with my second trip there because I was with my whole family. We also fetched my best friend in Balingasag. The kids truly enjoy their time, they love to swim after all.

How about you, where you gonna spend your summer?

How Exhausting Co-dependency Could Be

Before, I thought life would be a whole lot easier if you have somebody to lean on or it would be nice and rewarding feeling if somebody depended on you that much. But that was actually before.

I can see home shattered because one felt so exhausted being the sole breadwinner of a bigger family. I can see friendship shattered because one friend is too co-dependent to the other.

It is not really bad if you have someone to depend on in times of need or somebody depended on you when they are in need. But what is unbearable is if that someone doesn't know how to take responsibility to himself as well as to others. If that someone don't value "shared-responsibility" and instead became a burden to others, that's what make things or the situation bad. If the person become selfish and to self-centered, that's where and how the conflict will start.

So as an individual, we should have our stand. We should have learned the value of sensitivity, looking after the other and not just minding ourself.

That is also called, COMMON SENSE.

Once is Enough

There's a line in a song that goes, "shame on YOU if you fool me once, shame on ME if you fool me twice"- of course most of us are familiar of the song Life Goes On by LeeAnn Rimes.

What did the song imply? It's too heavy to handle actually. It's a song of a girl who fall in love for the wrong person but eventually realized the dilemma she's been through.

Unfortunately, not all madly in love individual have the same realization because there are still those who choose to continue to live in stupidity (sorry for the word), those who choose pain over common sense.

If you are involved with the WRONG person- don't hold on, you must stop it before you lose your sanity. Never allow that person to hurt you over and over again- that is called SELF-RESPECT.
