Repost: Never Borrow From The Future

I have received an email today, I thought of deleting it because at times I got tired of reading chain religious emails. As for me, that would only be useless IF the person reading it is not actually practising Christian faith or not a good Christian. Nothing really wrong about reading and forwarding, but I know some people might not like the way I thought that it is still good to show it in your actions not just in your mind, but buried deep in your heart and soul. Without these, it is just a waste of time and energy to just keep forwarding without even reflecting, without further evaluation about oneself's conscience. Remember God is watching us!

Here is the email that I've got this morning. I just wanted to share here for those who want to read and those minds, hearts and spirits are OPEN.


Never Borrow From The Future

An Angel says, 'Never borrow from the future. If you worry about what may happen tomorrow and it doesn't happen, you have worried in vain. Even if it does happen, you have to worry twice.'

1. Pray

2. Go to bed on time.

3. Get up on time so you can start the day unrushed.

4. Say "NO" to projects that won't fit into your time schedule, or that will compromise your mental health.

5. Delegate tasks to capable others.

6. Simplify and unclutter your life.

7. Less is more. (Although one is often not enough, two are often too many.)

8. Allow extra time to do things and to get to places.

9. Pace yourself. Spread out big changes and difficult projects over time; don't lump the hard things all together.

10. Take one day at a time.

11. Separate worries from concerns . If a situation is a concern, find out what God would have you do and let go of the anxiety . If you can't do anything about a situation, forget it.

12. Live within your budget; don't use credit cards for ordinary purchases.

13. Have backups; an extra car key in your wallet, an extra house key buried in the garden, extra stamps, etc.

14. K.M.S. (Keep Mouth Shut). This single piece of advice can prevent an enormous amount of trouble.

15. Do something for the Kid in YOU everyday.

16. Carry a Book with you to read while waiting in line.

17. Get enough rest.

18. Eat right.

19 Get organized so everything has its place.

20. Listen to a tape while driving that can help improve your quality of life.

21. Write down thoughts and inspirations.

22. Every day, find time to be alone.

23. Having problems? Talk to God on the spot. Try to nip small problems in the bud. Don't wait until it's time to go to bed to try and pray..

24. Make friends with Godly people.

25. Keep a folder of favorite scriptures on hand.

26. Remember that the shortest bridge between despair and hope is often a good 'Thank you Jesus .'

27. Laugh.

28. Laugh some more!

29 Take your work seriously, but not yourself at all.

30. Develop a forgiving attitude (most people are doing the best they can).
31. Be kind to unkind people (they probably need it the most).

32. Sit on your ego.

33 Talk less; listen more.

34. Slow down.

35. Remind yourself that you are not the general manager of the universe.

36 Every night before bed, think of one thing you're grateful for that you've never been grateful for before. GOD HAS A WAY OF TURNING THINGS AROUND FOR YOU. 'If God is for us, who can be against us?(Romans 8:31)

Feel free to repost or forward to anyone whom you wanted to have (more)

This Lullaby Quotes

I came across this book of Sarah Dessen entitled "This Lullaby". One of my favorite quotes are...

"No relationship is perfect, ever. There are always some ways you have to bend, to compromise, to give something up in order to gain something greater. The love we have for each other is bigger than these small differences and that's the key. It's like a big pie chart and the love in a relationship has to be the biggest piece. Love can make up for a lot."

"I am coming to terms with the fact that loving someone requires a leap of faith, and that a soft landing is never guaranteed."

But, I love her other books like.. "Just Listen" and "The Truth About Forever"

"There comes a time when the world gets quiet and the only thing left is your own heart. So you'd better learn the sound of it. Otherwise you'll never understand what it's saying." (Just Listen)

It has been a long time since my last post and I miss blogging so much. I was occupied with most important thing than blogging.. MY FAMILY. I was thinking of compromising my part time job and future career here over my family. And to sum it up... I could still manage and balance both.. and YES, I survived and I always will!

Through this sorrowful journey in the past, I have learned something valuable. They are the following:

1. Yet friends are helpful at times, but FAMILY is still the most important thing in my LIFE and they'll always be there anytime.

2. In dealing with friends in general, less talk.. less mistakes. Sometimes, there are things that we candidly share to "someone-we-called-friend" which they used against you (behind your back!) because they feel superior. I don't know anyone who hasn't got problems, really.. do you? So, I learned to shut up a little bit. Although, this could make me sick, LOL.

3. Choosing my words carefully and avoiding people who just wanna make gossip about other people. It's not my business to listen to others' problems for I have so much problems to think about, too. If they need my advice and counseling, I must hear it straight from their mouths otherwise, I don't care.

4. Some people may think I am an anti-social person and indifferent, but it's better like this atleast, I can manage my life as a good mother and partner. Who would think that sometimes being so socially visible can be harmfulf? Which is important? My FAMILY of course!

5. Widen my circle and mingle with moms like me who are dealing with the same challenges everyday, that way.. I could be able to get something useful that I need and at the same time share some things (common interests) that I think would be helpful to some moms like me.

6. Revisiting my goals and objective this year and beyond. I sometimes tend to sway a little bit, and so self discipline is needed.

7. Sex is not the only thing about building up a good relationship or to get along with your partner. It is essential, I know. But, if you have goals not to get pregnant again.. it would be helpful to really have self control and abstinence is the answer! Not so easy, though~ I'm glad, my partner initiated it.. unbelievable.

8. Avoid toxic people to have stress-free day everyday. This way, I could be able to minimize dealing with life's daily challenges as well.

I love it this way. I could think deeply as how to live my life fruitfully. Life is not that bad, after all!
