When one doesn't have anything to give...
As an observant as I am and based from the interviews I did, some conclusions arrived. Reality bites but these are the facts and yes, truth hurts.
" Proven, when people saw that you have lots to give, more are there to take advantage of you. A beach is one encouraging tool eventhough you dont like to swim, Boracay beach? you cannot resist it. Aqua color water with a striking sunrise plus a status symbol for just being there. Any chocolates from 'Bizu" eventhough its his first time to taste that so expensive one, with a room to destroy you or if you dont have anything to give after..they will leave you. I am calling them "Leach".
As one grow older, one must gained wisdom. 2010 is wonderful and amazing. The dissappointments only taught one to become stronger than ever. People have diferent character. People knows how to Blog..but what is blogging? (thanks Thor Nicolas)
When I saw the post of one " Out of School youth girl from a prominent school" with a status of being angry, foul words, unethical manner...the action does not follow the words..lack of integrity. It came to me like when one guy is drunk..he could say everything as if being drunk was an excuse for his manners...No, we are not dumb or unless few are..its the attitude and the silence that counts. No matter what school you are from, truly Family is the foundation of everything, the basis of our judgements, decisions and points of view. So does it mean without family theres something missing? (debate me on this)

Now heres something for everyone.
Gratitude, thankfulness, gratefulness, or appreciation is a positive emotion or attitude in acknowledgment of a benefit that one has received or will receive. The experience of gratitude has historically been a focus of several world religions and has been considered extensively by moral philosophers such as Adam Smith. The systematic study of gratitude within psychology only began around the year 2000, possibly because psychology has traditionally been focused more on understanding distress rather than understanding positive emotions. However, with the advent of the positive psychology movement, gratitude has become a mainstream focus of psychological research. The study of gratitude within psychology has focused on the understanding of the short term experience of the emotion of gratitude (state gratitude), individual differences in how frequently people feel gratitude (trait gratitude), and the relationship between these two aspects.--wiki
Truly Education gives power but action gives a louder impact than words. I don't believe that using text messages is more effective than calls unless the other person is hiding from you? text is better for surely he will read it. While email is one effective tool to hasten transaction, problem arises about electricity and connection.
For youngster, idealist but reality bites. Getting comfort with so called friends is temporary specially without money. Life is survival of the fittest. So I believe in a Total Quality of management where continous education and improvement for all parts of organization must be consider to get the better end result. If someone gave you the only money he has..treasure it for he is truly your friend. It's the quality not the quantity of friends you have.
As one became mature, synonym? Old and yes old, doing what is right based on morals is what one must do. Laws are written by men of knowledge and power but does it provides us wealth and peace? Maybe to some but not for the majority. As I knocked with so many hearts to give to many farmers a week ago, only few opened their doors and surprised for they were not the ones I expected.
If someone offers you something which you are not asking, treasure that someone..for they are only few. Now lets go back to GRATITUDE.
