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.
We all would like to love our family members unconditionally but there are some family members that we can’t help but avoid because they have toxic personalities and their behaviour stresses us out. It is particularly hard to avoid them during family gatherings and holiday celebrations. So how do you deal with them without losing your sanity and still be able to enjoy family gatherings?
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.
Some of us have issues with co-workers or team mates at work and this takes away our enthusiasm for going to work. You may have a work mate that stresses you out and you don’t know what to do with them anymore. If you are a leader in your work, issues related to team members not getting along well are even more problematic and can really be a headache.
We’ve all heard the story of petty quarrels and misunderstandings leading to a breakdown in relationships. Most of the time, couples blame the lack of communication to be the root cause, or a lack of understanding or appreciation from their partner as the reason they drifted apart and finally decided to end the relationship.
Planning a date but don’t have the budget? No worries! You can always stay indoors and watch 50 First Dates (or some other movie you both like) with your date instead. You can spend each of your Php100 on some popcorn and drinks or on other snacks of your choice. One of you got cable? Then, like they say, just Netflix and chill.Read More »
Going on a first date might feel really awkward and uncomfortable. You both want to put your best self forward without being too pushy, too talkative, too quiet, too loud, etc. You want to impress but you don’t want to be stressed.
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.
I have travelled with a friend who loves to travel too. We explored new destinations together and sometimes without a plan. We just knew where we wanted to go and figured out along the way how to get there, totally relying on the help of strangers.
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.
