Wake Up Call


I know you have been a little sad lately, been depressed and had been wishing for all other things.

You are on that point again of shutting yourself to the world. You are starting to live the life of a robot again. Wake up, eat, read, go to work and go home, be in front of your computer, keep up with how other people are living their lives that you are on the verge of forgetting to live yours.

All I know, I know that you are disappointed-- with yourself for most part. I have been telling you that you should not be hard on yourself. Don’t push yourself too hard coz we both know that you really cannot work or think under pressure. Things are not turning out as you have framed them in your mind and events are arising beyond your expectation, because you had forgotten that we cannot predict the future.

Remind yourself that everything is a choice. Everything is a matter of perspective—of how you view these things that had been coming your way. You are in the survival mode because you choose to see it that way. You need to look at little things that make your day happy, little stories of success, count blessings that come your way and appreciate wonderful people around you.

You just need a hug and someone to remind you that everything will be alright but if you keep on sulking and sleeping all day, you are missing the opportunity to get all the powerhugs the people around can give you.

Be strong. Be resilient, coz that's who you are.


Life is good. God is generous. Love is overflowing.

  1. Could be your wake up call or for others but it speaks in volumes. Wouldn't be nice to also sleep while being superhugged by someone :) and a very thought provoking post.

    1. its not teaching itself that is stressing me out, its the system and something else...
      masaya magturo, walang duda... pero ang hirap gumalaw sa isang sistemang di naman yata kapakanan ng mga bata ang priority...

  9. Have you been reading my mind? Or have you been reading my life through a crystal ball or tarot cards? This is about me. Ok, I won't be flattering myself further, hahaha!

    Ang gusto ko lang naman sabihin eh tamang tama itong post na ito sa akin.

    You know despite that fact na na-promote ako from aliping sagigilid to master sadista sa trabaho, i feel so disappointed with my life. It's a choice nga siguro and an attitude. Siguro it's time to change my mindset.

    Natutuwa lang kasi ako sa inyo na you really love your job, your profession. Sa panahon ngayon sasabihin na martyr lang ang gustong maging teacher at walang pera. Pero you have the courage to live up to your calling, and i believe everything falls in its place.

    It is my pride. It is the pride of life, to think that you can draw your future with your own will and skills. We always forget that we do not own our bodies and our lives, and there's a greater Architect in heaven who has prepared a better future for us. Takot kasi tayo sa uknown, and the future is always unknown kaya walang magtiwala sa plano ng Diyos.

    So I end up making my own decisions and doing my own plans. At ngayon, nalulunod na ako sa kung anu-anong regrets. Pero mabuti ang Diyos. When a door is closed, God will open the windows so then I will see Him finally.

    Siguro nga I need a hug pero hindi ako masyadong mahilig sa physical contact like hugs, unless nasa kwarto tayo or may plano akong maging intimate (manyak lang, hahaha!). Hanggang handshakes lang ako.

    And i need a lot of sleep. Laging night shift ako. NAGLILITAWAN NA NAMAN ANG TAGIHAWAT KO!!!!

    hahaha! Lumalayo na ang theme ng comment ko sa entry na ito.

    Bilang pangwakas, eh nais kong ulitin ang isinulat mo...

    "Be strong. Be resilient, coz that's who you are. Life is good. God is generous. Love is overflowing. "

    1. iyak-tawa ko dito.... parte ng sulat ko sa sarili kom pagkahaba habang sulat, nung una, gagawin ko sanang parang open letter to myself, pero tinanggal ko na lang din yun heading at greeting part... Yung last three statements, had always been my mantra, pero depression had drowned it lately.... everything is a change of mindset tlaga, the power of thinking can cross boundaries between the now and what we can be... it is fear that screws up everything... it is faith that keeps us pressing on.
