Acceptance…12.28.10

You cannot free yourself from a problem by shutting your eyes to it. To free yourself from a problem you have to acknowledge it and face it with your eyes and heart open.

True enough, we must accept the reality no matter how sad and bitter it is. In acceptance we can find the truth and act upon it. We can move forward…

Are You Happy With Your Job?12.26.10

Or should I ask… are you still happy with your job?

I am. But I’m tired. Lethargy has been with me for a while. Drained. Exhausted. Name all the demotivating words. They fit me.

2011 will mark my third year in this company and I have no major complaints here. I enjoyed being part of this IT company and I’ve really learned and earned a lot! :)

But at this point, I’d like to try something new. Something that I am more passionate about. Career growth, where are you? I’m adjusting my sails and will be heading to a different direction. I have so many plans and wishes. Good thing is, I know where to start. I’m still into online jobs so freelancing might work for me. I’m developing my SEO and SEM skills so as to be a professional! I’m not looking for any medical job, I’m more interested with computers and writing. While blogging, I will also pursue my dream business!

A Blessed Christmas12.25.10

I’m at work today, Christmas. :(

I wish I’m with my family or with my boyfriend and his family, but I’m not.

Sad.

But later on, a short message made me realize that I’m truly blessed. Still, I have a decent job that let me earn, be with my friends and learn more.

On this day of your life, God wants you to know … that you are blessed.

You may think you have challenges, but you have so many blessings. Sometimes it takes only a moment of conscious effort to recognize those blessings. Once you focus on the gifts instead of the problems, your whole perspective will change and you will see blessings everywhere.

Co-morbidity12.21.10

I can name few bi-polar person but don’t know anyone positive of dual diagnosis. Dual diagnosis refers to two disorders that are both present in the same person and it is also called co-morbidity. It is commonly associated with drug use disorders causing mental and emotional illnesses. The changes in brain structure and function are noted as results of addiction. To treat it and other co-occuring disorders, it is important to seek help from the experts. Psychiatrist are the best people who can offer treatment for depression, anxiety panic disorders and other dual diagnosis problems.

Given the right treatment and medications, patient can still recover from any combination of this abnormal health conditions.

Bad News for Christmas12.20.10

I just shed tears earlier when I learned that I have to report to work this Saturday at 3AM. Literally, Christmas day! Hell yeah, I was infuriated! I’m supposed to be off from work because my schedule said so. It’s supposed to be my RD!

What hurts me more is the fact that I wasn’t informed in advance about it. Too late notice, wrong timing, bad news! I was actually away when they send out the new schedule. They adjusted it without letting me know. Who am I anyway? They’re doing this for business. Pure business. Would they care if they know that this single email ruined my day? Is there something good to look forward to this Christmas if it’s meant to be spent away from my loved ones. Oh please, give me a break!

I’m trying hard to understand the logic behind this changes. The idea is so clear, yet the feeling remains the same. HATRED. LETHARGY.

…that God is crazy about you. God sends you fresh flowers every spring, a breathtaking sunrise every morning. If God had a wallet, your picture would be in it. If God has a refrigerator, your childhood scribbles would be on it.

God, where’s my bouquet of roses and chocolates for today… :(

Gun Is Not My Thing12.19.10

I am afraid of guns and gun shots. I gasp for my breath and almost faint each time I see guns and hear gun shots. Movies, crime scenes and even occasional gun shots give me the chill. It all started when I was a kid. I was with my grandma then who was selling vegetables in the market when a policeman started to drive each vendor’s away and I couldn’t remember what triggered him to shoot into the air. It was so deafening and frightening for a child like me. Ever since then, I hated those men in uniforms especially those who have guns.

Maybe it’s not just the gun but the chaos and danger associated with it. I am easily alarmed if there’s a heated argument or some commotion around me. I don’t know. But I’m really not used to that kind of environment.

Though, I had wished once to know how to use a gun. I really want to face my fear. It’s not some sort of serious phobia so I’m sure I can do something about it. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, so as they say. If I am to have a gun, I’ll make sure that I’ll handle it with care and store it in a safe place. Uncle mikes holsters can definitely make me a responsible gun owner.

Christmas Vacation12.18.10

I wish that office workers like me have Christmas vacation, too. If only I’m still a student, I might enjoy this week even more. Unfortunately not. I have to work my ass real hard until the 25th. I don’t have work during that day not because it is a holiday but because it’s my rest day so I’ll be off from work for two days. It’s something good to look forward to. At least I have the time to be with my family.

Christmas vacation usually extends until New Year. So the first Monday of January 2011 will be the start of working day. I have filed a vacation leave which was retracted by mistake. Or, did my supervisor intend to do it? Hmmm. I just wish that my Christmas and New Year will be memorable and full of love and joy!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year folks! :)
