What are the ways to improve your attention span?

I reduce my wasted time at work. Often, I find myself wasting time in surfing some favourite websites or something interesting to read. My best way to eliminate all distractions is to leave my phone in voice mail mode and check important messages in a short session.

The Lord’s Prayer

When I experience loneliness or if I am planning to do something I just start to pray the Lord’s Prayer without even being aware of it. This prayer gives me a positive mood to start with and peace of mind.

Can you open up to your employer?

It depends on the situation. When my problem is about my work and I cannot manage it even though I tried my best to fix it, I had better open up with my employer. 

However, if it is a personal matter not related to my work, I would rather not tell her as long as I can manage it. But if the problem is so disturbing and so hard to fix that I cannot focus on my work, I would tell her. I will share and explain the problem in a nice, constructive and specific way to my employer.

I am grateful to God for the past year because...
God communicated with me through all his wonderful works in my life last year. I am grateful that God was always by my side even when I faced affliction, pain, hardship and discouragement over the past year.  I realised God’s ever-loving presence is always there, no matter how hard things may be. Through ups and downs, he brought me out a stronger and more faithful individual. He opened my heart to understand the meaning of kindness, humility, mildness and patience, as well as restoring peace in my life.

The farmer and the cow

Why can’t I have wings to fly with

like the free swallows?

Why do I have to work all day

and eat only grass or hay?

Why can’t people love me as pets

Strong faith is unshakeable

Faith is an unquestioning belief in God. It is a perfect trust and confidence to his ever-loving presence, might and power. 

In Matthew 17:20, Jesus says, “I assure you that if you had faith the size of a mustard seed, you would be able to say to this mountain.” Just by saying move from here to there it would move.

How to avoid spending sprees at Christmas?

 

Christmas is a customary celebration for Filipinos. It is a season of gift-giving and merry-making. We have to spend wisely, give heartedly and remember that it is not on the value of the gift, but on the thought that comes with it.
