Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time. Exercise caution in your business affairs; for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals; and everywhere life is full of heroism. Be yourself. Especially, do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass. Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul. With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy. - Max Ehrmann, Desiderata, Copyright 1952.

Some words of wisdom

On Relationship...

Epiphany-a reawakening of the fire that first brought you together

He has to be loyal. I value most the fidelity of a guy. Call me selfish, but I want to be assured of my irreplaceability in someone's heart

Humans are fallible-This means that every relationship you enter requires responsibility and effort to keep its essence healthy

On yourself...

The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their way.

To give is to impart yourself to others; therefore you don't count what you give. The minute you count it, the essence of giving is lost.

You have to be yourself, be very honest about who you are. And if people still like you, that's fine. If they don’t that's there problem

Difference of love from infatuation

Hey, you guys! Just want to share this with it from a may want to know the difference...before its too late.

"Infatuation is instant desire - one set of glands calling to another. Love is friendship that has caught fire. It takes root and grows, one day at a time.
Infatuation is marked by a feeling of insecurity. You are excited and eager but not genuinely happy There are nagging doubts, unanswered questions, little bits and pieces about your beloved that you would just as soon not examine to closely. It might spoil the dream.

Love is the quiet understanding and mature acceptance of imperfection. It is real. It gives you strength and grows beyond you - to bolster your beloved. You are warmed by his presence, even when he is away. Miles do not separate you. You have so many wonderful little films in your head that you keep replaying. But near or far, you know he is yours and you can wait.

Infatuation says, "We must get married right away. I can't risk losing him." Love says, "Be patient Don't panic. Plan your future with confidence."

Infatuation has an element of sexual excitement. Whenever you are together you hope it will end in intimacy. Love is not based on sex. It is the maturation of friendship that makes sex so much sweeter. You must be friends before you can be lovers.

Infatuation lacks confidence. When he's away, you wonder if he is cheating. Sometimes you check. Love means trust. You are calm, secure and unthreatened He feels your trust, and it makes him even more trustworthy. Infatuation might lead you to do things you will regret, but love never steers you in the wrong direction. Love is elevating. It lifts you up. It makes you look up. It makes you think up. It makes you a better person than you were before."

First day at school - My masteral degree

Hello, there! You might be wondering where am I right now, well...after I had my last day at work, I've been enjoying every minute of being jobless again...Actually, today's my first day at school...for those of you who didn't know it yet...I am now taking up my master in Psychology. Anyways, as what I’ve told you, its my first day at school. Unfortunately, their had been some faculty meeting going on right now, so I spent some hours in an internet cafe nearby...Sucks! Why does it have to be on my first day of school! It was not really a good day for me since yesterday...There are some things going on in my mind right now and all this situation are not helping...some people are not helping as well...I read this story a while ago...from one of my girlfriends...Hope someone out there might realize a thing...Read On...

There was a little boy with a bad temper. His father gave him a bag of nails and told him that every time he lost his temper, to hammer a nail in the back fence. The first day the boy had driven 37 nails into the fence. Then it gradually dwindled down. He discovered it was easier to hold his temper than to drive those nails into the fence. Finally the day came when the boy didn't lose his temper at all. He told his father about it and the father suggested that the boy now pull out one nail for each day that he was able to hold his temper. The days passed and the young boy was finally able to tell his father that all the nails were gone. The father took his son by the hand and led him to the fence. He said, "You have done well, my son, but look at the holes in the fence. The fence will never be the same.

When you say things in anger, they leave a scar just like this one. You can put a knife in a man and draw it out. It won't matter how many times you say I'm sorry, the wound is still there. A verbal wound is as bad as a physical one. Friends are a very rare jewel, indeed. They make you smile and encourage you to succeed. They lend an ear, they share a word of praise, and they always want to open their hearts to us. Show your friends how much you care.

Jobless me

I wasn't able to give you anything about my-so-called life these past few days...Im just not in the mood to do anything and I've been busy with no work at all...what I meant with that is...Doing nothing keeps me busy...or doing nothing at all makes you want to do something to keep you busy...whatever! Last Saturday, the 28th of May was nothing significant for me...I'm just still counting the days...till my last day of work...Whhhaatt? Are you surprised? For those people I've always been with for every moment of my life...this revelation was not something new to them...I was like this for as long as I can remember...One day, I’m working, Jobless the next. You'll be more surprise if I'll be able avail the leave entitlement...its not like that I am not a good employee...I am a good one! not that I had problems with health or any thing...I guess...I’m just not fitted for it...I mean I love what I'm doing and I'm paid for being good at it! But sometimes things just happen and circumstances are just unavoidable...That's one good thing about being close to'll know what I’m telling you about...for those who do not know me at all...I read this quote just this morning..."about all you can do in life is being who you are...some people will love you for you...most will love you for what you can do for them and some won't like you at all."

And about Sunday, 29 May, Rowers Club Philippines participated in the First Leg Chinese Regatta...Correct me if I'm wrong...with so many the hell will i know! Anyways, we’ve given our best shot! But not good enough...We still have to improve and go beyond our limits...But all in all, it was fun!

The Travel Jinx

You won't believe what I've gone through the whole day! I woke up this morning...feeling that this will be just another normal day for me...that was before I slipped after going to the bathroom...and hit my right arm on the chair...Ouch! And then my boyfriend was inviting me to spend the whole day with him...which was what I really wanted to do...Unfortunately, I have set some appointments in the office that I couldn't cancel. How sad! Ok, so before I left the house for office, the rain just started to pour big time, without much choice, I came running through it! Before I could reach the long end of our street, my shoes were already soaked from the rain. And the passenger jeep I chose was so damn bull! Stopping at every corner to get passengers even if there is no more vacant seat! Alright, a few long minutes of traveling, here comes the traffic at Guadalupe! Darn! This is getting into my nerves!

After that, it all came smoothly! I had my sit inside MRT and I was so at peace...and then suddenly...I came into my senses...already far from Cubao Station (place where I suppose to be!) Now I have to wait until GMA-Kamuning station to go back to Cubao! When I was crossing the overpass...I almost slide going down the stairs! This is too much to handle...This is becoming so frustrating...but you know, I’m not the type of person who gives up easily so...I continued this challenge I was up against...I was already perspiring from all the hassles I've gone through and all I want was a nice ride in an FX taxi...So there you are...The driver of the vehicle was like my knight in shining armor! Whew! At last? Guess not! I thought that was the end of it all until we were stopped by a policeman for beating the red light! What a loser! Now all I want was to go straight home...I was already fixing my things to give-up...when suddenly, its done...We were allowed to go...Hmm... and of course we know what transpired between the driver and the police officer...And then, yes! I finally made it! I already swipe my ID...I’m late of course...but it was a fulfilling tardiness! Warning you all! Don’t get near me today...just today! Tomorrow will be a different day...I hope!
