On Chances and Changes

There are a lot of movies and songs about time travel — looking back the past and seeing what it does with the present moment. Upon travelling the last time, with the rain pouring down and the music playing in the background from RNB to the Classic ones, I was in a trance of seeing the world backwards. Would there be a lot of changes if I smiled to the stranger that I met  one sunny day?  Could it alter  my whole life if I chose another course? Would it be a lot better if I stayed quiet and should’ve  kept my thoughts?

Carpe Diem

 

Years ago, every time the calendar jumps at the eight month, a hint of excitement is expected to bounce off the walls.  It’s a childlike trait that I wholeheartedly welcomed  because I am happy of doing so. But as I  stepped into being an adult and realized that birthdays are not always the kind of day that we fancy with, I became casual at celebrating it and stick to making it as a simple day. That cakes and balloons doesn’t necessarily matter, that as long as my loved ones are within my reach, healthy and still having a whale of a time — it is more than an enough reason to thank God for adding up a year in my life with them.

I may reside in a tropical country  where spring, winter and autumn do not exist, yet we are bound to feel these seasons throughout our lives and the challenge to get through with each phase and making the most out of it is somehow  irrefutable.

Day 17 of 366

January 17,Sunday- it was  the First Special Gathering of the Church Officers for this year  and after that was also the First Monthly Meeting of the Youth in our Locale. I consider it as a productive day for it was spent learning significant things both in spiritual and secular matters.

Our topic was about TIME MANAGEMENT which was discussed by a simultaneous active Church officer, Company Manager, husband and a father of three.

So here’s the summary of the summarized colloquium (as he pointed out to us how he managed to compress this supposed to be a three-day seminar topic):

Hiatus at A.M.

 Weird. I must be snoring early on that morning. Well, I am not really a morning person. Grins I usually write at night , tweak over my pen and paper and enjoy being nocturnal. But I found this cliché on my drafts last month (and the time noted there was 5:0oAM?). Maybe because I was doing the opposite of what was first in the list:   🙂 Continue reading
