Father's Day Special: Real Life Superhero

The most unforgettable life lesson I learned from my father perhaps is feasible, but never easy. It is about dreaming big and being optimistic that I will make it; with all my energy and power. I wish to have been given powers just like superheroes and live an extraordinary life just like when I was a kid who used to daydream about holding a ball of fire in my hands or reading someone's mind. Anyway, being a superhero is a delusion, but when I was a kid that was like a real experience; something magical brought by creative imagination. Perhaps, everyone may have similar fantasy and even up to adulthood whenever we feel like we would want to escape from the reality. We just want to be saved from trouble and stress by such delusional thinking. 

As a grown up man, things never get easy. There are times when I fantasize situations if I find it hard to live in the real world. If only I am wealthy enough not to work hard for a living and just travel to places whenever I want. Give away money to less privileged to lessen their burden of suffering. However, such thoughts is just a fantasy. Going back to real world, I need to work hard to earn for myself so I could live decently, travel to places with just enough money and give even a little amount to the needy. I realized that I don't need to fulfill my dreams just by having a fantasy world in my thoughts. I should escape from the troubled thoughts and start living the kind of life that I have.

Growing up with the right mindset and the right action is a challenge. But there is one superhero whom I believe would rescue and willing to give a little power, and that is a Father. He is there to push us when we feel weak, when we feel unappreciated, when we feel undervalued and when we feel powerless. I used to be like that and maybe up to the present time. My Father would care to give his precious advice about life. He is full of wisdom that inspires me to exert more energy so I could face all the challenges thrown at me. 

I may encounter difficulties in life, but I should be living fearlessly. I have to stand tall and ready to face all the battles. There are times that I feel like quitting, but there's a certain energy that pushes me to move forward. I realize that I just need to slow down, take a break for a moment and come back with a clear thought and a positive spirit. I thank my father for passing on the positive virtues that's worth emulating. I may not have accomplished much in life as he does, however a dose of positivity would help me to achieve success.

Looking back, about 5 years ago, I have written about Father's Day Special: Leading The Waand the message is about will power; having a fighting spirit. Still relevant in today's time and will serve as a guide in living a better life. I believe I can make my dreams come true even though I am not a superhero. I may not have a tremendous power, but I should remain optimistic that I can deal life with all my energy and power. Not imagined, but a real power that comes from the heart and mind. That's my weapon... that is my power. 

Today, we honor and give thanks to our Father for raising us well and for guiding us in living our lives. Like a compass, you pointed out the right way and you cheer us up when we arrive at the destination. We are forever grateful for the good life you dreamed for us and we wish you a better life that you deserve.

Memories of Summer 2018

There's nothing compares than the feeling of happiness that the summer brings. For some, they may hate the hot and humid temperature while for others it is truly a bliss. Whenever the favorable temperate month of February ends, it excites us and seems looking forward for out of town trips, adventures or just a simple staycation to unwind and rejuvenate. Perhaps the most joyful time of the year is spent at the beach, a waterfall, a river or a mountain resort just to provide relief from intense heat.

What makes summer of 2018 memorable is the journey on the road that no matter how far is the destination, still we enjoy the scenery and can't wait to experience what the place has to offer. The cool and gentle blow of the wind; the allure of the ocean; the amazing sunrise in the east and the beautiful sunset in the west are the things that awaken our spirit. It is when we recognize the beauty of the natural wonders that we experience ultimate happiness that is truly memorable.

There's a feeling of great relief and a sense of renewal for even a short while once we had a temporary escape from the usual work. There's a natural healing that cleanses and purifies us to make us complete and ready to face a more complex world with calmness and peace. I always believe that our body always find its way to heal itself. It's as if our soul wanders around and our physical body would bring us somewhere. Our soulful desire is what makes us live our purpose to stop for awhile and take a deep breath as we enjoy the precious moment.

Summer Food bazaar at Bonifacio High Street
Summer time is about enjoyment on little things that matters. We enjoy being outdoors and experience life on the street. We enjoy the food accompanied with an upbeat music. We enjoy the vibrant and positive energy that gives us a sense of accomplishment as we look back on our victorious plans and actions. We made it! we succeeded! and we express our gratitude for it.

Summer time is the preservation phase of the year and a great time to get energized and revitalized before the onset of the rainy season or monsoon. We enjoy the season in the sun and we return to our place with much gratitude and peace in our heart and mind. During our travel, we develop realizations about work and life balance that we deserve a much needed break once in a while to relieve stress and burnout; the prize is appreciation for a meaningful life — a life well lived.

Mother's Day Special: Unconditional Love

A Mother is someone who loves us with all her heart. That perhaps is the definition that most of us would describe to our mother. Being loving and caring is beyond her duty of motherhood; it is a commitment and it is eternal. When we were young, we were helpless and we ended up crying and we cling to our mother who would then comfort us; making us feel safe and feel protected. As we grew up, our mother is still there who watches us as we embrace our own world making sure that we can stand up on our own.

Today, we celebrate Mother's day and it is a celebration of life; that we are here in this world because of her and we continue to live better for her undying love and support. Mother's Day Special: A Celebration of Love is not just a one day celebration. It is to be remembered and celebrated at any time of the year whenever we feel the need to appreciate them and make them feel special. We may not be showing off how deeply we love them, but somehow we get to make them feel good with our sweet gestures.  

Distance may not become a hindrance in showing our love to our mother. She is there to listen when we feel weak or frightened. She assures us that everything would be fine and you keep on fighting. The world is tough and we need to become a fighter in the real world. Mother's Day Special: Compassionate Care is a way of raising us to become a better person and to realize our purpose in the community where we live in. We are being taught never to give up easily, but whenever we feel lost, there's a victory coming on our way. We just need to be prepared to accept and live it wholeheartedly.

Today, there may be children who doesn't have a biological mother on their side. But someone has given them hope and stand up to be their mother. It is a commitment and a testament of unconditional love. Blessed are those kids who has a second mother to be at their side and to guide them on their way up. When the time comes that they are living independently, they will reminisce and look back to their second mother and honor them for raising them well and for giving them a life worth living. 

Our mother, our heroes! Our fighter and our defender! They will always protect and love us and we give them back by way of following them because mother knows what is good for their kids. We honor and give them thanks. To our mothers, we pray for them to have more strength and power to live in this world and to continue on loving us children today and forever.
