A Short But Fun Road Trip to Atimonan, Quezon

We all want a vacation now and then to be able to relax and re-energize but sometimes, our busy lives just doesn’t allow for a luxurious getaway. Us girls also wanted to go on a vacation but our schedules never seem to match and we always had something to do on weekends. But we were all determined and constantly excited to discuss our plans for a weekend getaway.

Finally, we settled on just going on a road trip to a small resort in Atimonan, Quezon. It was a 6-hour ride, far enough from the city but still near enough not to exhaust us from the travel time. Picking a date to go was tricky at first, but I guess our determination and positive thinking paid off because a couple of days before the weekend, all our schedules synced. So, we met early morning, on a weekend, (despite some mishaps and a sleepless night of packing our bags) for our quick adventure. It was a very quick one indeed but it was all worth it as we came back with more than just fun memories of our trip.

How to Apologize Properly

When a word or phrase is said and heard over and over again, it’s meaning gradually fades away. A prime example is the phrase “I am sorry” or “I’m sorry”. Whenever we do something that we think might offend or inconvenience another person, we quickly blurt out these words. But when the situation is not so simple and feelings and even persons are physically hurt, saying the same phrase is often ineffective.

There is a better and proper way to apologize so that the sincerity of your words are conveyed and we should practice these steps more often.

Dress For It

If you have heard of the Law of Attraction or LOA for short, then you know the principle of like attracts like. When you have positive thoughts, you attract positive things, people and circumstances into your life.

In the same manner, if you dress for the job you want, you will put yourself in a space as though you are already experiencing your desire. That is the secret to attracting what you want. Dressing for it just help you to feel what you want even more.

But don’t just dress for it and day dream all day. Be ready to get the job or receive the promotion. Dress for it, show up for it each day and work hard at it. Do everything you can to be deserving of it and let the universe take care of the rest.

Communicate with Touch

The skin is the largest organ in the body but we often take for granted how we communicate nonverbally through our body language but also through how we physically touch other people.

One of the ways you can comfort a person is through a gentle squeeze of the hand or a hug. Touching a person who can’t stop talking not only stops them from talking incessantly but makes them realise that you want to understand them better. For grieving or scared individuals, holding their hand or enveloping them in a firm hug, is a great comfort to them. It also assures them that someone is around to help them cope with the situation.
