#HolyWeek2014

Hi Mommsies!!!

How was your holy week!
As for our family, we spent the rest of the week in our house in Mandaue City here in Cebu.

I spent time with my son, had chit chats with my mom, sister and aunt Cora.
I guess that should be the most treasured moment of my work life since I get to spend the long weekend with them.

Have you noticed that most of the people are dying to go out and soak on the water? I have read a lot of vacay posts lately be it on instagram, fellow bloggers and some of my "wealthy" facebook friends.

Well, good for them -- they get to spend it splunging on the water. I can't question that action since as you may know, it is SUMMER indeed now in the Philippine Islands.

What can I say? Right?

It is Super Duper HOT!!

The sun is up all the while and I, my partner A and Adi stayed just at our little nest.

Here's what I posted via IG:

I was still thankful that even if I wasn't able to attend mass and confession, I was able to reflect.
Here's what the Lord is telling me as I read His Words from the Bible: (the Book of Ecclesiastes)

2:17 So I hated life, because the work that is worked under the sun was grievous to me; for all is vanity and a chasing after wind. 2:18 I hated all my labor in which I labored under the sun, because I must leave it to the man who comes after me. 2:19 Who knows whether he will be a wise man or a fool? Yet he will have rule over all of my labor in which I have labored, and in which I have shown myself wise under the sun. This also is vanity.
2:20 Therefore I began to cause my heart to despair concerning all the labor in which I had labored under the sun. 2:21 For there is a man whose labor is with wisdom, with knowledge, and with skillfulness; yet he shall leave it for his portion to a man who has not labored for it. This also is vanity and a great evil. 2:22 For what has a man of all his labor, and of the striving of his heart, in which he labors under the sun? 2:23 For all his days are sorrows, and his travail is grief; yes, even in the night his heart takes no rest. This also is vanity. 2:24 There is nothing better for a man than that he should eat and drink, and make his soul enjoy good in his labor. This also I saw, that it is from the hand of God. 2:25 For who can eat, or who can have enjoyment, more than I? 2:26 For to the man who pleases him, God gives wisdom, knowledge, and joy; but to the sinner he gives travail, to gather and to heap up, that he may give to him who pleases God. This also is vanity and a chasing after wind.
5:1 Guard your steps when you go to God’s house; for to draw near to listen is better than to give the sacrifice of fools, for they don’t know that they do evil. 5:2 Don’t be rash with your mouth, and don’t let your heart be hasty to utter anything before God; for God is in heaven, and you on earth. Therefore let your words be few. 5:3 For as a dream comes with a multitude of cares, so a fool’s speech with a multitude of words. 5:4 When you vow a vow to God, don’t defer to pay it; for he has no pleasure in fools. Pay that which you vow. 5:5 It is better that you should not vow, than that you should vow and not pay. 5:6 Don’t allow your mouth to lead you into sin. Don’t protest before the messenger that this was a mistake. Why should God be angry at your voice, and destroy the work of your hands? 5:7 For in the multitude of dreams there are vanities, as well as in many words: but you must fear God.
5:8 If you see the oppression of the poor, and the violent taking away of justice and righteousness in a district, don’t marvel at the matter: for one official is eyed by a higher one; and there are officials over them. 5:9 Moreover the profit of the earth is for all. The king profits from the field.5:10 He who loves silver shall not be satisfied with silver; nor he who loves abundance, with increase: this also is vanity. 5:11 When goods increase, those who eat them are increased; and what advantage is there to its owner, except to feast on them with his eyes?
5:12 The sleep of a laboring man is sweet, whether he eats little or much; but the abundance of the rich will not allow him to sleep.

Thanks for reading!
And God Bless us always!
Hope you too had a way better Holy Week =)

Repost: Don't you dare!




Fully 85% of your success and happiness in life is going to be determined by the quality of 

the relationships that you develop in your personal and your business activities. Similar to

 famous entrepreneurs, the more people you know and who know you in a positive way, 

the more successful you will be and the faster you will move ahead.


At virtually every turning point in your life, someone is standing there to either help you or hinder you. Famous entrepreneurs make a habit of building and maintaining a network of high-quality relationships throughout their lives, and as a result, they accomplish vastly more than the person who goes home and watches television each night.

More than 90% of your success will be determined by your “reference group.” Your reference group is defined as the people with whom you habitually identify and pass the time.
You are like a chameleon in that you take on the attitudes, behaviors, values, and beliefs of the people with whom you associate most of the time. If you want to be a successful person in business, if you want to become one of the famous entrepreneurs, associate with positive people.

Associate with people who are optimistic and happy and who have goals and who are moving forward in their lives. At the same time, get away from negative, critical, complaining people. If you want to fly with the eagles, you cannot scratch with the turkeys.

Whenever you meet new people, ask them to tell you about their businesses and, tell you what you would need to know to send clients or customers to them. Then, as soon as possible, see if you can send some business their way. Be a “go-giver” rather than a go-getter. Always look for ways to put in before you start thinking of ways to take out.

The very best way to network and build your relationships is to constantly look for ways to help other people achieve their own goals. This is the best secret for learning how to make money without expecting something in return.
