Success is not always the reward of DOING, the biggest reward here is you will know what are your capabilities and if you fail you already know what to do next time.

A lot of People nowadays are suffering from obesity. We cannot blame them, as the saying goes “When it is forbidden it is delicious” that is why we become a big supporter of fast foods, unhealthy snacks and processed foods. It is ok if we can keep on eating what we want, who doesn’t love to eat anyway? But we have to be conscious of the risks that it may bring to us. Exercise is one of the most effective antidotes to obesity or being overweight. There are many
Exercise Programs out there to help you and guide you to become healthy and fit but what if you don’t have enough budget to purchase them? This is where your improvisation must come in. Exercise can become frustrating or difficult if we don’t know how to enjoy it that is why we have to choose an exercise that is fun and easy to do. I’ve been experimenting since I was young of what exercise can benefit me and at the same time I will really enjoy. I’ve tried stuffs like jogging, thread mill, running,
yoga etc. But none of them made me feel great. Professional athletes said that don’t do the routine you hate to do, if none of the routines you know or is available is not making you feel good either quit or learn to love it. After years of searching what is the best for me I gave jumping rope a try. It is a little difficult at first but you don’t have to force yourself if you cannot gain momentum. Practice using it for at least 10 minutes a day without stopping then as the day goes buy you can add 10 to 20 minutes as long as it is not stressing your mind and body. I’ve been a jumping rope user for more than a year and it really makes my body in shape, before I was 165 lbs then I trimmed my weight to just 138 lbs. But of course you have to mix it with a little diet and proper discipline. It also perspire you more than jogging. It takes me 10-15 minutes of jogging before I feel the sweating but in jumping rope your body will easily heat for just five minutes. Jumping rope for me is the easiest and most convenient exercise to do. You don’t need to go outside like jogging, all you have to do is stay in a place where you cannot hit something and that’s it, do it as long as you can and have fun!

Each one of us has a dream but not all are willing to pursue it. Maybe they are afraid that they might fall or people will laugh at them. If you will not pursue your dreams then you will die for nothing. What will be the meaning of your life? It is like you never exist in this world at all. Are you just going to watch your idols in the television? Let me tell you something...They don’t care for you, they are not interested in your life. Why not make a statement that you can also do what the popular people can do? After all you will know that what is missing in you is just confidence. When I was in College I was amazed at my classmates who can do this and who can do that. Lately I’ve learned that I can surpassed what they’ve doing in their life. I don’t regret my past because I am so happy that I’ve learned how to make an impact in others' lives. So what are you waiting for? Are you just going to watch them soar? Stand up and make a statement, tell the world that you also exist.

I hate to say this but this article is about my brother again. How many times do I have to tell him that he must do his assignments or projects first before anything else? He played his favorite computer game DOTA first then he asks me to help him to do his assignment. My temper turns into boiling point again. I yelled at him and told him to do it by his self. I know that I hurt my brother’s feelings but I think that is the right way to disciplined hm. I also remove the voltage regulator from his PC so that he cannot use the PC anymore. I know that I really hurt his feelings because he slept too early. His regular sleep was 10 pm but he is already snoring on his bed at 9 PM. While I am watching TV in our living room at midnight my brother woke up and asks me if I want a midnight snack. This is his way of asking an apology. I asked him why he is still awake, he says that he got hungry so he immediately went to the kitchen to look for food. I follow him at the kitchen and tell him that do not do that irresponsible behavior again. I put my hands on his shoulders and gave him a slight hug. Tomorrow morning I put back the voltage regulator so he can use the PC again. When I turned on the PC I was shocked because it is not working anymore. I tried several attempts to make the PC work but it is still not showing any signs of life. I said to myself that this is my Karma of what I did to my brother. I felt guilty because if I were only more patient then this thing wouldn’t happen. I said to myself that I have to make this PC work so that my brother can use it. I tried for several attempts again until I come up to an idea to open the PC and look if there are wirings that might loosen up. While I am removing the case of the PC I see a PSP charger behind it. This is the charger that my brother was searching for a very long time. My guilt was lessened because he can now also use his PSP. I also finally got to make his PC work, my assumption was right, there were just loose wirings inside that made it inoperable. When my brother arrived from school he was very happy because he can now use his PC and his PSP, of course he did his assignments first. I’ve also learned that you can still make up with the mistake that you did and there is still something positive with the negative that you did.

Do you have any favorite book? A book that even if you read several times will still change your mood and turn your ugly day into a bright one. May it be about romance, motivation, horror, comedy or educational. I have my own favorite book, a book that changes my life forever. The book is called Maverick Mindset, authored by Doug Hall, I don’t know if it is still available in stores but all I know is if what I have is the last copy I won’t sell it for a thousand bucks. This book has changed my life completely. I was once a fool who is blaming the world for the unfortunate things that happened to my life. My life is without direction and all I know is I have to get lucky in order to have a wonderful life. There is something in this book that caught my eyes to buy it. The first time I look at its cover and its title I know that it can help me a lot. My decision is right it has changed my life from being a negative person into an optimistic one. I become to love challenges and face my fears. I don’t settle for less and I began to set up goals and get them one by one. I am not saying that I am very rich or a millionaire like others but the book has opened my eyes and I learned how to stand for what I believe and take matters on m own hands.
I can’t believe I’ve finished what was on the picture. Yeah it is not so nice but what behind it is what makes it so amazing. It is my 12 year old spoiled brat brother’s project. I am working on my room when my brother knocked on my door and ask for help. I thought it was just an easy one but when I look at it my blood pressure rises again because he didn’t even started it and it was supposed to be passed tomorrow. He was playing basketball the whole afternoon and he will try to do it when it is already his time to sleep. I have no choice but to do it without knowing how to start. The project looks easy at first but what makes it difficult is you don’t have any idea what the design will be and you have to finish it in a very short time. What makes it even more difficult is I am chatting with my longest running client in graphic design and he is asking me to do a rush job. I cannot say no to him because I might lose money when I refuse to work. I don’t know what to do but I just keep on going. Doing the project of my brother and at the same time my client’s assignment. I feel lucky because our rooms were separated by a few steps. I go back and forth to my room and my brother’s room every now and then because my client is instructing me to do something. I’m glad that he is not getting angry when it takes me up to 10 to 15 minutes to reply. After hours of going back and forth to my room and my brother’s, I finally finished his project. I know that it is not as nice as expected but I can’t believe that I nailed it even though I was doing some other thing. I came to realize that no matter how hard your task is, it still can be finish as long as you keep on going. It is true that you cannot serve two masters at the same time but you can alternately.

I am not a big fan of cats. They were very strange and mysterious. They will give you a very frightening stare and their eyes are very sharp like it could kill you. For some people cats are lovely pets and very charming but for me they signifies bad luck. Every afternoon after our lunch there is always a black cat searching for leftovers in our dirty kitchen. This black cat will accidentally break glasses or plates and that will cause my blood pressure to rise. I always hunt this black cat and even set a trap but this animal is very quick and slippery. One time this black cat broke my favorite glass and that is the time that I made a decision to end the life of this cat. Tomorrow afternoon I leave a fishbone in our dirty kitchen to serve as a trap for this cat. I am hiding behind the walls carrying my air gun. At last the black cat pick the fishbone I immediately shoot it but I missed. The black cat quickly run and climbs to the wall to escape its death. I saw the black cat running to the vacant lot at the back of our house. I went to the vacant lot and patiently searching for it. I know that this animal has nowhere to go and it’s just hiding somewhere. I finally saw the black cat hiding in the bush of leaves. I was about to shoot the black cat but I was surprised with what I saw. There was another black cat and maybe it is its partner. The other black cat was trapped and cannot move. Its left leg was caught by a heavy big rock and maybe it has been there for a very long time. I immediately push the big rock to free the cat. I am happy that it can still walk although it is limping. I didn’t shoot anyone of them, I am amazed by their story so I set them free. Just when I thought that the black cat that was causing a serious damage in our kitchen deserves to die but its real purpose was to look for food and give it to its trapped partner to avoid dying. I was amazed that even cats experienced love and they will fight until the end in order to survive. Their story was very motivating that is why I wrote it. No matter what trials came into our life we should never give up because in the end our sacrifices will be rewarded.
