Hi Dearest friends, I am finally back to writing my Sunday Blog!
I just went for few months of procrastination. (Sucks to be lazy) I know, I know, I am also looking for what I lost—My Motivation!
Anyhow, I don’t want to spoil what motivates me today to write hahaha! Its been so long since I get to write what happened to me fro the past few weeks or months to be exact.
Fortunately, I have the time now!
Let’s kinda enjoy this wonderful Sunday guys!
This and that. I am not moving on from my articles for my reaction paper for my MBA. But anyhow, I’m happy almost there reaching that Tassel and Degree! Gambatte Kudasai self! It’s gonna be a good end of the year if you surpass the storm of your exams hahaha! (I know for some they just started their term at their respective schools! How’s Highschool and College life guys? Enjoy while it last coz adulting is so so so much demanding than your terror professor!)
anyhow, sharing these two interesting Articles:
A journal on Operations Management: “System Dynamics perspectives and modeling opprotunities for research in Operations Management.”
Cisco Services Helps Lower TCO for Cisco IT (I really think my professor is a major in IT I keep on getting IT articles for my reaction papers)
This once in a blue moon Blog. (I will try my best to do a follow up if I get the best of myself in these coming days hahahaha! In short, I will try not to be lazy)
Whilst, I am fan of Elaine Duran since the beginning of her journey with TNT, I was stunned by John Mark on his 3 final songs for TNT Championship. I just can’t get enough of his performance. He brought these OPM songs to a greater level. A man of Talent indeed!
Okay so this is gonna be a Long one.
For the last years I was in Dubai, I learned a lot on how people behaved. It’s a cliché to say but, “People come and go” is the best way to explain what I felt for the last 5 years here in UAE.
I became close to people of different culture and race, Say Hello and Goodbye as they soon depart form this sand pit land.
It is also the same with my fellow Filipino friends.
While there are goodbyes to remember, Unfortunately, there are that you have to let go and better never remember. There are times that these friendship you thought to be real, are just so fake that it becomes too good to be true.
For example, I had a 12 years friendship that I just ended cutting ties with. Because it was too painful to shoulder such person in my life. Who have been giving a lot of negativity in and making me thought of bad things towards her due to her actions and attitude. You will really never know what a person could be after he/she experienced a life, for us maybe being an OFW really changes a person’s attitude and behavior. Especially, for her who don’t have a family here to lean on. Being strong and keeping her self interest was the best she could do to survive here. But that made our friendship ended. I cannot deal anymore with her inconsiderations of me and my family. It might be painful now that I took a different path for our friendship but this is the only way for me to finally be free of stress and negativity.
Most of the Filipinos here in Dubai tend to have a mindset of “FIRST SELF” which I failed to do so for the last 5 years. HAHAHA Yup, you might call me stupid for being too trustful, too generous, or too kind to some people who have used me, made fool of me, or just wanted something from me. Well, I just have this principle in life that whatever other people do to you let it not take away who you are. Do not change the way you have treated everyone from the start just because they don’t treat you the same. Kindness is not something you ask for something in return. It is something we do and give because its the right thing to do.
If people take advantage of your kindness, let it be, it doesn’t changed the fact that you are kind, it just shows what kind of people they are for doing such act.
So you might ask? Then how will you learn to value yourself?
You see, valuing yourself is not how people see you, It’s how you see yourself.
If you still see yourself being that kind, generous, and same person you was, and it makes you feel happy and good, then don’t change.
Let your genuine feelings change the people around you.
Because no matter what you do you can’t actually impress or change everyone as much as you want. Then why make the hassle to change yourself just to let people learn their lessons? Let karma do that for you, because if you have met people who have taken advantage of you and made a fool out of you, or worst— have hurt your feelings, just think of this: Life is balanced. There would also be people who are watching you and appreciating the genuine you. They are just around you so don’t fret on the people who you have invested your true feelings and eventually wasted it. You will still be surrounded by the right people, if not now sooner or later. Or you might not just noticed it but they are THERE, supporting you all these time.
Advise to anyone reading this:
Smile, be kind, be yourself, do not let the negativity of others changed that optimistic you. Let go of the people who are negative to you and negative to themselves.
Spread the word, Spread #Goodvibes
