I feel like not doing it

Am I making myself fired?

This is my thought now.

I think I can do it, but I am not doing it.

When I'm on bed, thoughts and realization comes like a lightning.

I knew I was wrong and I had to do what I ought to do.

I am not productive and I am not doing my job very well.

Then the next day came and I want to make things right. I really do.

I have to make myself do what I ought to do and be focus on the things that I need to finish, else I'm done.

I need to put myself together and just do it. Yeah! Just do it!

I am killing time as I am writing this down.

I found this very helpful thoughts from my uncle Uary. Take time to read. :)

Meant to Fly

This is an excerpt from the book entitled, The forgotten God written by Francis Chan of Cornerstone Church in Simi Valley California here it goes:

Years ago, when a random thought came into my head, I decided to share it with my wife. "Have you ever wondered what caterpillars think about?" I asked.

Not surprisingly, she said, "No."

I then proceeded to tell her about the confusion I imagined a caterpillar must experience. For all its caterpillar life, it crawls around a small patch of dirt and up and down a few plants. Then one day it takes a nap. A long nap. And then, what in the world must go through its head when it wakes up to discover it can fly? What happened to its dirty, plump little worm body? What does it think when it sees its tiny new body and gorgeous wings?


As believers, we ought to experience this same kind of astonishment when the Holy Spirit enters our bodies. We should be stunned in disbelief over becoming a "new creation" with the Spirit living in us. As the caterpillar finds its new ability to fly, we should be thrilled over our Spirit-empowered ability to live differently and faithfully. Isn't this what the Scriptures speak of? Isn't this what we've all been longing for?


It really is an astounding truth that the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead lives in you. He lives in me. I do not know what the Spirit will do or where He'll lead me each time I invite Him go guide me. But I am tired of living in a way that looks exactly like people who do not have the Holy Spirit of God living in them.  I want to be different today from what I was yesterday as the fruit of the Spirit becomes more manifest in me.

I want to live so that I am truly submitted to the Spirit's leading on a daily basis. Christ said it is better for us that the Spirit came, and I want to live like I know that is true. I don't want to keep crawling when I have the ability to fly.

Let's fly! Let us discover our full potential as followers of Jesus as the Holy Spirit empowers us.

Dear Mr. Blogger

"Dear Mr. Blogger, I had a crush on you."

I met you last year in an event. I saw and find you attractive. There was something in your smile and in your eyes that captured my attention.

The next day, I search you on google, facebook, and twitter. I followed your social media sites. What happened next was, you accepted my friend request, and followed me back. I thought that was awesome but I feel like a complete stalker. Yeah, maybe I was. I knew that the feeling was meant to last for a short time, infatuation as people defined it.

I'm a fan of yours, I guess. We met before and I'm not really hoping that we will meet again. We may interact (in a limited way) through social media sites, and you might like some of my pictures too.

I hope we could be friends in person. :)


Your fan,
Blogger.

Lovestruck Sakit Edition

I'm going to post an everyday lesson. Well, it could be an excerpt from a book or personal reflection and lesson.

So for today, let me share my Tuesday life lesson:

Expectation is the mother of all frustration - (Ronald Molmisa, 2014)
This is an excerpt from Ronald Molmisa's newly published book entitled Lovestruck: Sakit Edition. Everyone could relate to this book, if LOVE is something universal you might also agree that PAIN is also universal.

Ayoko nalang isipin at ayoko na din damhin




Simple lang. Ayoko nalang isipin at ayoko na din damhin. Ayaw na kung ayaw, gusto kung gusto.

Relate ka sa kantang ito kung:

A. Biglang nagbago ng pakikitungo ang iyong significant other or special someone.

B. Feeling mo iniwan ka sa ere ng nagbibigay ng special treament sayo.

C. Ikaw yung taong nagli-lead ng relationship nyo at napapagod ka na.

D. Di ka sure kung crush, like, love or gutom lang ang nararamdaman mo

E. Crush mo si Cathy Go (gaya ko! Haha)

F. Maganda yung beat at dahil napanood mo ito sa Kris Tv

G. May mga linya sa kantang ito na sadyang OUCH ang tama sa iyo.

H. This song is about decision;
 Ayaw kung ayaw, gusto kung gusto. Walang medyo, walang malabo, walang magulo. Linawin natin ito!


May naisip pa ba kayo? Ako kasi wala na. Kung meron pa, pwede kayong mag suggest. Comment nyo lang sa ibaba tapos edit natin. Ilan lang yan sa mga posibleng dahilan kung bakit gusto mo ang kantang ito at paulit ulit mong pinapatugtog, suki na ng playlist mo.

--
The song will speak for itself. Di na kailangan pahabain o palalimin pa ang kanta na ito. Change is the only constant thing in this world, and most of the time, our decisions were being affected by our changing circumstances. It either confuse or assure us of our decision.
It's a matter of decision. Sabi nga sa kanta "ayaw kung ayaw, gusto kung gusto", na ibig sabihin kailangan mong magdesisyon. Emotion will always falter and confuse people, but decision will bring vivid image of what we want to convey.

Thus, decide now.

My Song: Holding My World - Kristian Stanfill

My plans will fail. My heart falters. My being fails me. Everything about me, I count nothing. But God is so good. He redeemed me, gave me life and promised great things beyond my imagination.

I once failed. He brought me back on my feet. He secured me with His eternal words.
Then, I gained assurance, and motivation to move forward. He gave me breath to breathe.


I left home and tried to live on my own. I challenge myself to overcome my fear and get out of my stupid comfort zone and here I am blogging about my thoughts. It's been a week that I kept on listening to this song which serves me peace that comes from Jesus.

"This is my favorite part of this song:
I am your child, beloved
And all of my days, my future is laid in your promise
Jesus, to the end of the age
I am not alone or forgotten.

So I will not worry or fret.
My God is a God who will never forget
All of His goodness and all of His promises
He's holding my world in His hands."


In return to my parent's hard work, I am working. In return to God's faithfulness and favor to me, I am working with all my heart. I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. This life is not about me. It's about Him who saved me.

Thoughts about working

Simula ng naka graduate ako ng kolehiyo nitong nakaraang Mayo, isyu na sa akin ang pagta-trabaho. Maraming factors na dapat i-consider sa bagong chapter ng buhay kong ito.

FYI, employed po ako. Technically, this is my second job since nung nakagraduate ako. Opo. Tama ang hinala mo. Nag resign ako sa una kong trabaho at mag-iisang linggo palang ako sa trabaho ko ngayon.

Anak ng pating! Ang dami kong iniisip tungkol sa buhay. Teka ah, ililista ko yung mga tanong ko:

1. Bakit kailangan kong magtrabaho?

Sagot: Kasi hindi ako anak ni Bill Gates o ni MVP para tumambay sa bahay, gumimik at i-post sa facebook ang lahat ng ginagawa ko sa buhay ko. Kasi hindi kaya ng budhi ko na pagkatapos akong pag-aralin ng akin mga mahal na magulang sa loob ng sampung taon ay susuklian ko sila ng "Mommy, Daddy.. Pwede po bang wag muna akong mag trabaho. Kailangan ko po munang hanapin ang sarili ko at malaman kung ano po ba talaga ang gusto kong trabaho. Pwede po ba?". Syempre hindi!

So bakit ko kailangan magtrabaho? Para sa sarili ko? Para sa pamilya ko? Para sa ikauunlad ng bansang Pilipinas? Para kanino?

Bakit kailangan? Simple lang, kasi habang tumatanda ang tao merong mga needs na kailangan ma-meet. Ang pagta-trabaho ay parte ng sirkulo ng buhay, isang sistema sa mundong ito. Pwede naman wag magtrabaho, kung gusto mong tumambay lang at magbilang ng poste. Push mo yan!
Kung meron man akong kinakausap sa  blog na ito, iyon ay ang sarili ko. Kung may kalaban at tinutuligsa man ako, iyon ay ang sarili ko. Kung may gusto man akong ma-overcome sa mga sandaling ito, iyon ay ang sarili ko.

2. Bakit ganito yung trabaho ko?

Isa lang ang tiyak ko kung bakit ako napunta sa isang starting company for the second time around, plano ito ng Diyos. Kani-kanina lang, parang gusto kong maghanap ng lilipatang trabaho. Di dahil mahirap ang trabaho na ito. Maybe, dahil unstable pa tong trabaho ko kaya parang habang maaga pa gusto ko nang umalis. Parang yung una kong trabaho. Pangatlong araw palang gusto ko na agad mag quit. Pero hinid naman ako nag apply sa ibang company.

Gaya ng una kong trabaho, may kakilala nanaman ako sa new job ko. Yung nga lang, ayaw kong umalis sa trabaho ko ngayon. Ang laki na kasi ng investment ng nanay ko sa akin. Pag nag quit ako dito, patay na talaga ako. I should embrace this job and the life that I have now.

Maybe I should stop questioning things and these circumstances. I should start to kick my ass and wake up and accept things na ganto talaga eh. Kailagan kong magtrabaho whether I like it or not.

3. Ang hirap mag-isa sa office at ang hirap maging independent.

Tama nga ang dati kong boss. Nakatira pa rin ako sa aking comfort zone. Wala ngang growth sa loob ng comfort zone. So, para magkaroon ng growth, kailangan ng challenge.

Nagtataka lang ako dahil simula ng iwanan ko ang college life, nawalan na din ako ng gana na ma-challenge. Oh no!!! Ang gusto ba ng katawan ko ay easy life ahead. Pero hindi eh! Hindi pwede yung ganun. I need challenge to help me become a better person. Kaya ako dinala ng Lord sa ganitong company.


4. Kasing gulo ng isip ko ang sistema ng kumpanya.

Di sa naninira ako ah. Pero magulo pa sa ngayon dahil nag uumpisa pa nga. Eh di pa naman ako magaling sa pag-o-organize pero kaya ko naman syempre. Di ko naman kailangan maging magaling eh, kailangan ko lang gawin.


5. Kapaan galore!

Di naman ako bulag, pero seryoso nangangapa ako sa mga bagay bagay. Di ako sanay na papasok sa opisina at ilang oras tatambay bago kumilos sa trabaho. Nasanay ako sa previous job ko na pampered agad ng trabaho simula ng pagbukas mo ng PC. Sandamakmak na email ang kailangan mong reply-an at sandamakmak na client ang dapat tawagan.

Di ko pa ma experience yun sa mga oras na to dahil di pa nga stable.


What to do?

1. Set my mind. Renew my mindset.
God promised me PROGRESS in my career. I need to break my three months routine. Gusto ko ng matagalang experience sa trabaho.

2. I must be proactive.

Less FB. Less Twitter. More email. More convo with my superiors.


3. I must be firm in making decisions.

Nagfa-falter kasi puso ko, kaya pati decision ko bumibigay na din.
Kilala ko pala sarili ko. Now that I know these things, I must overcome.

Ganto nalang, para hindi kainin ang mga sasabihin ko, I'd rather do it than saying it.
Less talk. More work.

4. Say hello to the new you!

Talagang ini-stretch ako ng panahon. Para bang baby na kailangan agad mag mature. Grabe yung required growth ng buhay. Hindi ako dinadahan-dahan, pero part ng process.

Ilang months from now, mukhang hindi na talaga ako yung dating Eunice. RIP self.


5. Hello God.

Jesus, I surrender everything in your hands. I knew this would be tough. I was overwhelmed with your promises to me. But I will hold on to it. Jesus, I will not ask you to make things easy for me, but right now I am asking you to make my heart strong and my mind firm for whatever plans you have for me. I want to give you Glory and if it cost me my life to give it to you, please take it. It could be painful, but surely, it will not last for a lifetime. You are eternal and these are temporary.

There is no place I'd rather be than in your presence.
