I Promise to My Self

I was reading this poem. It inspire me in observing realities that I have gone through that I swore I have to do and take heed on every word that this poem displays. The author presents positive facts that everyone can relate. He showed reality which bites. He shared things that people will ponder on. He gives this for us to learn that promises of the self brings direction to one's plans and aspirations in life. This poem is written by Christian D. Larson. It is entitled "I Promise to My Self".

I Promise to My Self

To be strong that nothing can disturb my peace of mind
To talk health, happiness and prosperity with every person I meet.
To make all my friends feel that there is something worthwhile in them
To look at the sunny side of everything and make my optimism come true
To think only of the best, to work only for the best and to expect only the best
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as I am about my own
To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future
To wear a cheerful expression at all times and give a smile to every living creature I meet
To give so much time to improving myself that I have no time to criticize others
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear and too happy to permit the presence of trouble
To think well of myself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud words, but in great deeds
To live in the faith that the whole world is on my side, so long as I am true to the best that is in me

The Fact about Lucky Charms

I have seen on TV about the Chinese New Year's Water Dragon lucky years this 2012. I was so sad that 1982 was not in the list. With further report that says that being me in the year of the dog is not lucky this year. 

I was in the point of believing, but in the full sense I was mad. I don't believe about who's the luckiest or not in this year of the Water Dragon. 

For me, all of us are lucky. The very fact that we breath and wake to face another day every day is the luckiest gift and we, the benefactor of it are the luckiest. 

It is not through what the beliefs of other's culture that dictates us of not being lucky or something. 

Let us be aware that it takes no false fortune that points a person's life in a way that might threaten or disturb his way of living. We should not rely our life to the signs of fortune for in the first place, no one knows the tide of the story of our life except the will of God. 

That is why, in totality, there is no way to be worried about what others say about one's fortune. The best and true luckiest you resides in the hands of God. That is why, prayer is always and will always be the best armor.

Realization on my Acute Pyelonephritis

For the past months and days that I have the energy to the maximum level that I can fully and 100% do what I want to do, it is the biggest and the most fulfilling part of my life. Those were the days that I can fully say that I am at my utmost and ultimate best. Those days were the times that I am active and can laugh and smile. Those times were the strongest and the most bravest of me.

Out from the endless vigor that I have that I can be able to fully perform all the things that I can do, those optimum strength, I guess will not vanish nor will gradually lost. I can't even totally accept now that I am suffering from Acute Pyelonephritis, a kind of disease that could kill if I am not going to take heed on its causes right now. 

I thought that I can be active then and now. I thought that the spirit of being strong will not deplete me. I was so shocked to think that my bodily pain turns out to be acute. I might afraid that this will turn to chronic. That is the case that I can't accept. 

Fronting this fact, I was in despair. I feel like impotent and unstable. I feel like I can't do what I want to do now. I feel like I can't be able to be at my best now that I am suffering from this kind of serious disease. I thought that it was just a fever or just plain bodily pain. I was wrong. I got the most cruel disease. 

I have been thinking - How could I be able now to fully help my sisters. How could I sustain them that I am the breadwinner of the family. How could I do things like before that I feel like useless and hopeless of this. 

There are those times that I have recalled all those wonderful things that I have done while I am skill okay. I should have done all things before, those times that I am well. Now, I am afraid that I could not do things that I want to do. I don't want to be impotent. I don't want to be unstable. I don't want this disease. 

I have realized that I should help myself first, that I should prioritize my health more now. I have learned to be healthy and give justice to my health. I pray. I now gain the touch of God in me, that He wants me to stop from my busy world and think and pray to Him. 

Despite of this, I never lose hope. I will always strive and stand tall. I will face this fear. I will heal myself. I will stay positive in spite of this impotency. I will be okay. I will be strong. I will gain the vigor I have before. I know I can. And I will.
