Words of Wisdom Wednesday: Ugly The Cat

This story was on my Facebook's news feed from an the Unknown Author that definitely moved me. This is a story of how easy for some people to pass judgment over something that appears sore to their eyes. People tend to judge the book by it's cover, no matter that popular the saying is to do not do it. And this story has truly inspired me. It taught me a lesson on how important it is to be kind to others, despite of their appearance, what they do, or what they say to you. It's normal for people to become defensive and hurt people who hurts them, instead of understanding them because hate doesn't get resolved by another hate, but with kindness. So, be kind because you'll never know what they're going through, just like Ugly.

The fight of the century

...or is it?!

A week past since the so-called fight of the century. I didn't think it was. And based on commentaries I've been seeing around, most, if not all, thought of the same thing. Yes, I had to wait a week before posting this. I didn't think I would but why not?! I have my opinion and I have a blog to write it on.

I'm no boxing expert. And I'd be lying to say I've watched too many fights to compare. I've seen most of Pacquaio's fight, but that's about it. I rarely talk about boxing, otherwise. But his fight with Mayweather, I knew he wouldn't win it. Why? Floyd Mayweather was too smart for Pacman. But I wouldn't say that Mayweather is a better boxer than Pacman though.

Fun Facts About Mom by Abi

First of, let me say "Happy Mother's Day" to all the loving and kind Moms out there. I hope you had a good one! I'd like to say 'to all' but we all know that not all mothers deserved to be one, unfortunately.

On the bright side, I love how my son surprised me with his home (or school) made mother's day card. He is usually pretty bad with keeping secrets from me. My husband actually learned that the hard way. But this year, my son only mentioned Mother's Day one time this week and never again until the actual day, when I got down the stairs, and he proudly handed me his purple (my favorite) color card. I was totally surprised that he actually made something for me. Well, thanks to his teacher for letting the kids show their creativity while learning the importance of celebrating their mothers.

Inside the purple card is a little questionnaire they fill out about their moms and below is what Dion thought of me. I love his answer in "the one thing I hear my mom say a lot is" and how he thinks I'm funny because I gave birth to him. LOL.

I'm a very proud mom of my smart, silly, and loving kid! Each time I look at him, I know I'm doing something good in life to deserve such an awesome son. And that alone makes me the happiest mother, not only on mother's day but every day of my life.


Four women of my life: my Mother-In-Law, my Aya, my Nanay, and my Mamang

Mother's Day is a very special day for me, not only because I am a mother myself, but also because this is a great opportunity for me to thank my mothers/grandmothers and treat them extra special today. All mothers who took care of their children deserves a good Mother's Day, not necessarily by getting them expensive gifts but by making them special in any possible way you can.

I knew a lot of Moms but there are four most influential mothers in my life. I've learned so much from them and I am the mother than I am now partly because of them. This Mother's Day won't be complete without recognizing the mothers of my life. And they are....

Top 10 Highlights Of My Life

I tuned in to my favorite morning radio show, Bobby Bones Show, this morning like my usual daily drive to work, when I heard them sharing some highlights of their life, which inspired to me to write this post. 

Here is the Top 10 highlights of Jona's life!

10. First kiss.
Yes, I consider this as the 10th highlight of my life. I don't know about you but I'd never forget my first ever kiss. It was with my first boyfriend. I was 18 years old then, the age that my Dad said I could start dating. I remember waking up the next morning thinking about how sweet my first kiss was.

Words of Wisdom Wednesday: No Doubt

This is what I am feeling right now. I am asking myself until when should I keep moving or how hard should I keep trying

I want something in life and at one point thought I was right on track until impatience fooled me and made me take a different road. It seemed to be a long road. There were many obstacles and some were hard ones. But when I was about to give up, a little bit of hope hinted me to keep going. Then there was light, but it wasn't a full light. Something's blocking it but it's there. Now, I am trying to figure out how to get where the full light is at.
In life, there will always be hindrances. But they are just like that and nothing more. They are just like the tiny torn on a stem. You will need to touch them to get to the most beautiful part of the plant, the flower. The flower symbolizes your goal. The torn will never be bigger and more beautiful than the flowers on the top on the stem. And that's how we should see our goal, it should be bigger than any hindrances.

Life is never easy and it's meant to be that way. They said, if the fight ain't hard, then it ain't worth winning. I have won so many fights before and if I gave up on them, I wouldn't be where I'm at right now. I am far from my goal, but I will keep moving, fighting, and trying to get to where I wanna go.
