Our words have power to make or break a person’s life, including your own. The words that come out of our mouths can change the course of a person’s life, behavior or purpose. It is up to us what words to say, whether the words are seasoned with good or bad ones. It’s better if we can always let the good words come out regularly.
When I was growing up as a child, various people said all kinds of words to me, negative and positive alike. Those very words altered the way I view about myself and how I would behave when I am around with other people.
Some said I was a snob. I was like this (or still am?), because of the words that were carelessly hurled at me. It hurt my self-esteem.
As a teenager, girls in the school send love notes to me. But instead of being delighted of that privilege, I viewed it as an insult. They were probably making fun of me. It’s all because in the past, people closed to me said negative words about my looks. And those words I accepted as true.
Although I view myself as handsome now haha, hence the Gwapito.com name for my site!
It is indeed true of what James said in the bible, in James 3:3 that our lives are like a boat traveling out in the sea and the rudder as its guide, a small part of the ship could change the course of it travel. Likewise our lives traveling out in the sea of life, and we have a tongue, a small part of our body, but could make or break our lives and other peoples’.
When I was a teenager I read a one sentence quote, “Love is not always a sign of being in love”. Immature that I was, I disagreed.
Now that I’m now in my 30s and have been through a lot emotional experiences, I could relate to whoever wrote that short piece.
I believe jealousy is also stemmed from insecurity, not because you’re in love. Insecurity is selfishness, not love. A jealous husband will physically or emotionally hurt his wife if he suspected her of cheating on him.
We should not hurt the ones we love. This is true love. True love trusts. But if trust is wrecked, or if the one you love is obviously cheating on you, then that’s the time to be jealous, but hurting the guilty one should be avoided.
My prediction was wrong. Erap was found guilty of plunder charged against him.
Credits to Inquirer.net for the image, i used it without permission .
I don’t have enough facts to support my prediction. But i believe he will be acquitted. An officemate of mine said that Erap Estrada may be charged, but he probably will just serve a short period of time since he already did during his arraignment.
I personally believe that he did steal money, just like most politicians. Though there are a really very few honest ones, but just very few.
1. When parents like to name their kids with two or even three names, but these parents call their kids with a shortened name or nickname.
An example is a friend of mine whose son’s name is Samuel John, but they call him Sam, or Samsam.
Nobody is innocent. Even the most righteous person on earth is selfish. Being selfish isn’t necessarily bad, but most selfish attitudes are detrimental not only to the one having it, but also the ones around him or her.
Have you ever noticed that after a group photo shoot you always check yourself first than others?
Manilablog.com has been up for two months already. It’s on this site that i put my gimmicks, photos, leisure life, my opinions regarding Manila whether good or bad. Everything about Metro Manila, according to me!
While Gwapito.com is for my opinions ranging from the very personal opinions positive and negative alike, political views, racism, my experiences with God, my dreams, even my web and graphic portfolios. But will add more on the latter in a month or two.
Thanks to Jobstreet.
Naozumi “Nao” Tsuchiyama has an amputated right leg, but now wears prosthetics. He is a language instructor, but what he really wanted to be is a boxer.
Boxers need a license to become eligible to fight, but was denied by his home country.
He went to the Philippines to apply, but was denied by the GAB. Though medical reports shows that he is fit to fight. His application was rejected twice, but Nao persisted and finally GAB relented and was given his license.
Presently, Nao has a 2 wins, 1 draw and no losses statistics.
I don’t how long he will do boxing, and hopefully will keep on winning. But his story motivated me to pursue my dreams for myself, for my family and for others.
Hopefully it will motivate you as well.
This is the Olympic Creed presented to all athletes during the Olympic Games:
“The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well.”
Personally I found this creed a load of crap, and Olympic Creed at that!
Let me present to you an analogy. Supposedly you are applying for a job, there are others vying for that job position, you’re desperate for a job. You are confident about yourself, your academic background, your experience. You spent already significant amount of money just for job hunting. But you were not chosen. Okay. Just remind yourself that you have taken part, winning that job position is not the important thing, anyway.
Victory is one of the most important things in life. Defeated lifestyle is a life of misery. Whether you are a part of competitive sports, or just about any everyday dealings in life. Be constantly victorious. When defeated, accept it. Be better next time and fight again.
