One day at a time please…

In Advice about Life on January 11, 2014 at 2:29 pm
The successful person learns to live in the present only, but always headed toward next time. Live a day at a time & do a job at a time. Then go on a next time. That makes sense, But, unhappily, lots of people don’t do that. Instead, they live in the past, present, and future all at the same time. What an error to waste mental energy brooding over past events or worrying about problems that might develop at some future time and then again might not.
Never waste a moment on yesterdays. Finish every day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well & serenely and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense.

I am convinced that God has a clear plan for our lives and that He is generous in the way that He communicates what that plan is to us. When He wants us to take the next step He will be sure that we know what it is that He wants.we need to wait patiently on God while anticipating His wonderful promises. Often God has us in waiting while He does a good work within usequipping, growing, and maturing us in His ways and character so we can then handle the fulfilling promise He sends our way. 🙂

Until you are broken, you don’t know what you’re made of. Being broken gives you the ability to build yourself all over again, but this time around build yourself stronger than ever. Therefore you will be unbreakable.

The Blind Man

In Advice about Life, AUTHOR's ADVENTURE, Random, Reflection on June 21, 2012 at 3:32 am

I was asking myself these past days if how should I walk my daily life. I was tired of being stranded in the middle of nowhere and I felt hopeless and left behind.

One sunny afternoon, I was walking in the street of my hometown when I met an old man wearing a dirty clothes, with so many backpacks in his back. He was holding a dozen of broken umbrellas and a long stick of wood. And then I realized that he was an umbrella repair man. I remembered I have a broken umbrella so before the rainy season will knock on our barangay, I decided to let him repair it so i can be ready for the rainy days. I never expected that he’s blind because he was wearing a sunglasses. I pity him so much at the same time amazed because he has the capability to repair an umbrella even if he has no sense of sight. It’s amazing!


We chatted a little while he was repairing my umbrella. Because of my curiosity, I asked him if it’s hard repairing an umbrella without the sense of sight and how did he does it. With a humble heart, he just answered me with a smile and said, “ Life is hard. Sometimes we have to go through hardships in life to appreciate what we do have. Being blind doesn’t give me the reason to quit rather it gives me reason to strive harder and thank our God that He still gives me the chance to live my life with my loved-ones. Sometimes, you just have to keep telling yourself that God knows what’s best for you. You don’t always have to like what happens, but you just have to trust. Even if i can’t see, I trust God with everything.. and I do believe in miracle. 🙂 “

I was ashamed of myself because I have so many complaints in my life but look at that blind guy, he has no complaints in life but rather grateful for everything. That day, I realized that I shouldn’t be worried in walking alone and being left behind as long as I never give-up and continue on stepping my journey. I trust God that He has so many plans for me. And no matter how many problems we have in life, those shouldn’t give you reason to quit.  When life gives you a hundred reasons to cry, you better give life a thousand reasons to smile 🙂 

God’s Coffee

In INSPIRATIONAL STORIES, PHOTOS on May 7, 2012 at 9:02 am

A group of alumni, highly established in their careers, got together to visit their old university professor. Conversation soon turned into complaints about stress in work and life.

Offering his guests coffee, the professor went to the kitchen and returned with a large pot of coffee and an assortment of cups – porcelain, plastic, glass, crystal, some plain looking, some
expensive, some exquisite – telling them to help themselves to the coffee.

When all the students had a cup of coffee in hand, the professor said:

“If you noticed, all the nice looking expensive cups were taken up, leaving behind the plain and cheap ones. While it is normal for you to want only the best for yourselves, that is the source of your problems and stress. 

Be assured that the cup itself adds no quality to the coffee. In most cases it is just more expensive and in some cases even hides what we drink.

What all of you really wanted was coffee, not the cup, but you consciously went for the best cups… And then you began eyeing each other’s cups.

Now consider this: Life is the coffee; the jobs, money and position in society are the cups. They are just tools to hold and contain Life, and the type of cup we have does not define, nor change the quality of Life we live.

Sometimes, by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy the coffee God has provided us.

God brews the coffee, not the cups………. Enjoy your coffee!

“The happiest people don’t have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything.” 

Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God.
