The Modified Gratitude Challenge

Some of my friends had embarked  The Modified "Gratitude Challenge" in Facebook. When nominated, you just need to list three things that you are grateful for over 5 days. And each day nominate  at least two (2) others to take on this challenge and share. 
As a response to said nomination, starting out Day 1 of 5:
1.)Today, I am grateful for the patience of the man who taught me how to turn Hatred into Love.
2.)Thank you, for making boring days at sea into memorable nights. 

3.)Likewise, thanking you for the encouragement to wake up early, to catch the sunrise 
and look forward to seeing a beautiful sunset at the end of the day. 
 From this day forward, I commit to living on the brighter side of life.

Crossroads

It is always a fact  that at some point in our existence we reached some  deciding point, life offers us choices and to be able to get by, we must be ready which direction to take. Tip toe if we must but we have to take the choice and face the consequence that goes with it. Study the pros and cons and choose the best option. Something that will make you happy and can give you peace of mind and if things don't turn out as expected at least you can handle it well.

Thoughts on Relationships

Whether we admit it or not, at one point in our married life, we asked ourselves  are we with the right partner? Then we wonder " How do I know if  I am with the right person?"

Every relationship has a cycle… In the beginning; we fall in love with our partner. we anticipate their calls, want their touch, and like their idiosyncrasies. Falling in love wasn't hard. In fact, it was a completely natural and a spontaneous process. We didn't have to DO anything. That's why it's called "falling" in love. 
Falling in love is a passive and spontaneous experience. But after a few months or years of being together, the euphoria of love fades. It's a natural cycle of EVERY relationship.

Slowly but surely, phone calls become a bother (if they come at all), touch is not always welcome (when it happens), and your spouse's idiosyncrasies, instead of being cute, it  drive us nuts. The symptoms of this stage vary with every relationship; we will notice a dramatic difference between the initial stage when we were in love and a much duller or even angry subsequent stage.

At this point, we and or our partner might start asking, "Am I with the right person?" And as  we reflect on the euphoria of the love we once had, we  may begin to desire that experience with someone else. This is when relationships breakdown.

The key to succeeding in a relationship is not in  finding the right person; it's learning to love the person we found.


SUSTAINING love is not a passive or spontaneous experience. We have to work on it day in and day out. It takes time, effort, and energy. And most importantly, it demands WISDOM.  We have to know WHAT TO DO to make it work and make no mistake about it. God determines who walks into our life. It is up to us to decide who, to let walk away, who will stay, and refuse to let GO!
Love is  a "decision" and the best part of loving is not in wishing that the person loves us back as much as we do. It is in realizing that we  the person far more than we thought we could."  :)

Seasons of Life

How to live life is always a daunting choice. In each season or phases, experience either break or make us a better person. The people we meet and our attitude towards the circumstances that besets us matter on how we approach every situation but, in the end it is the lessons learned from our decisions that truly matters.
