In Preparation

May 12, 2010

Tomorrow is yet another Thursday. I already have the poem done, but I won’t post it until tomorrow. I am also supposed to prepared my acceptance and nomination for the Perfect Poets Award. I still don’t know who to nominate. I will have to read through the poems tomorrow and see whose poem will strike a chord within me.

I am really excited for tomorrow. I have not been writing a lot of poems lately, but I always make it a point to have one poem ready every Thursday. It’s really a great thing that Jingle started this rally. It has been 18 weeks now, and the community is stronger than ever. There are other members I have not seen anymore, but I am glad that I got to know them through the rally. I am also very happy to meet these new poets that Jingle has found. I know I will really have a great time reading through a lot of poetry tomorrow.

Awake

May 4, 2010

Finally, that intensely busy weekend is over. Monday was not even spared. It was supposed to be a holiday, but I had to write so many articles this week. All in all, I think I was able to write more than 60 articles, each with a different topic.

I must say that I think I have exhausted myself. Except that I don’t feel that way at all. If anything, I feel rejuvenated. I feel renewed and more relaxed, and thank GOD for that. WordPress, I am definitely back!

Cool…

April 18, 2010

I want to congratulate my friend, Coleen Digman, for being a Wikipedia contributor. Aside from that, she is actively participating in marathons and runs for different causes.

I would absolutely love to be writing for Wikipedia or About.com. However, I don’t think I have the patience to become a better writer, so I can write good enough things for them. However, I am really proud of my friend, and I am happy for her. It is nice to be doing things that are not just for your personal accomplishment. It is also nice to have friends like her, intelligent, driven, and successful.

I guess I’m really just blessed when it comes to friends. Thank GOD for that! 🙂

I hope you guys out there are also lucky with your friends. If you are, take the time to reach them today and tell them how thankful you are for their friendship…. 🙂 xoxo

Not so Manic…

March 29, 2010

I am currently trying to be busy with a new blog. No, I am not leaving WordPress. I just created a second blog where I am going to post all the poems I have ever written. People who are into photography create photoblogs to post their pictures. I follow one or two photoblogs myself. However, I feel like I should also create my own poetry blog. I have loved writing since I was about 12. I want to compile everything in one blog. It’s going to be a riot, I am sure, and by riot, I don’t mean it in a good way.

I have written at least 200 poems. Posting them all in one blog is sure to make a mess out of things. I am willing to take a risk, though. I will just have to find a way to arrange things, create pages, links, and widgets to make things easier to access and more fun to read through. As of now, the blog is still private because it is still under maintenance. I am going to keep this blog here because this is chronicles my entire life. The poetry blog will serve as one facet out of the many that I have. When the site is ready, I will surely invite you all to visit.

I have not been asked to work on a Monday morning for a while now. I have always had my work scheduled on afternoons. This week is a different story, though. I have to train three girls for a new campaign. This is my second week with the girls. I am glad for Mondays, even if they may be manic most of the time. I will probably be posting another blog entry later today. I hope so.

Another Page

February 5, 2010

I am also going to plug another new page. You may check it by followng this link. This new page is about my favorite posts on this blog. For the two months that I have this blog, I’ve written at least one entry each day. I came up with a list of the articles that I really liked.

A part of myself is always left with the poem whenever I write one. It means that those poems I wrote become a prt of me. That goes the same thing when I write articles and blog entries. This is how much I love writing. There was a time when I stopped writing because it took much a lot of time, and I was so busy living my life that I felt like writing was just a luxury. I am not going to make that mistake again. I am back, and I am a writer once again. 🙂

The Greatest Advice

February 2, 2010

Again, I am going to share a very inspiring email message that I received last year. I hope that you enjoy this message as much as I did. There are really very good pieces of advice here. This piece was written by Rick Warren. Happy reading!:)

THE GREATEST ADVICE

Rick Warren

 

 

Don’t date because you are desperate.
Don’t marry because you are miserable.
Don’t have kids because you think your genes are superior.
Don’t philander because you think you are irresistible.

Don’t associate with people you can’t trust.
Don’t cheat. Don’t lie. Don’t pretend.
Don’t dictate because you are smarter.
Don’t demand because you are stronger.

Don’t sleep around because you think you are old enough and know better.
Don’t hurt your kids because loving them is harder.
Don’t sell yourself, your family or your ideals.
Don’t stagnate.

 
Don’t regress.
Don’t live in the past. Time can’t bring anything or anyone back.
Don’t put your life on hold for possibly Mr. Right.
Don’t throw your life away on absolutely Mr. Wrong because your biological clock is ticking.

 
Learn a new skill.
Find a new friend.
Start a new career.
Sometimes, there is no race to be won, only a price to be paid for some of life’s more hasty decisions.

 

To terminate your loneliness, reach out to the homeless.
To feed your nurturing instincts, care for the needy.
To fulfill your parenting fantasies, get a puppy.
Don’t bring another life into this world for all the wrong reasons.

 
To make yourself happy, pursue your passions and be the best of what you can be.
Simplify your life. Take away the clutter.
Get rid of destructive elements: abusive friends, nasty habits, and dangerous liaisons.
Don’t abandon your responsibilities but don’t overdose on duty.

 

Don’t live life recklessly without thought and feeling for your family.
Be true to yourself.
Don’t commit when you are not ready.
Don’t keep others waiting needlessly.

 
Go on that trip. Don’t postpone it.
Say those words. Don’t let the moment pass.
Do what you have to, even at society’s scorn.
 

Write poetry.
Love deeply.
Walk barefoot.
Dance with wild abandon.
Cry at the movies.

Take care of yourself. Don’t wait for someone to take care of you.
You light up your life.

You drive yourself to your destination.
No one completes you – except YOU.

 
It isn’t true that life does not get easier with age.
It only gets more challenging.

Don’t be afraid. Don’t lose your capacity to love.
Pursue your passions.

Live your dreams.
Don’t lose faith in GOD.

Don’t grow old.
Just grow YOU.

When you give someone your time, you are giving them a portion of your life that you’ll never get back.
Your time is your life.

That is why the greatest gift you can give to someone is your time.
Relationships take time and effort, and the best way to spell love is T-I-M-E because the essence of love is not what we think or do or provide for others, but how much we give of ourselves.
