A...is for "ADVICE"

I hope I can join every single ABC Wednesday this Round 6!

I can't find any happy topic for A, as the recent events in my life are not so happy happy, if you get my drift. Though I can't say that everything's sad, or dark, or hopeless. No one can make you unhappy, except yourself,that's for sure.

And so...for today's ABC, I'm going to list a couple of advices I hope mean to give serious consideration. But I hope that you, my dear reader, will get something to think about, too!

For starters, you can check this one out, but here's a couple of my favorite lines:

  • Take a deep breath. It calms the mind..
  • No one is in charge of your happiness but you.
  • Time heals almost everything. Give time, time.
  • Don't audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.
  • No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.

I love Bob Ong, too. No one knows who is Bob Ong, really, as he uses that name as pseudonym. I love his take on life. Know more about Bob Ong on wiki and here.

  • "...madaming teacher sa labas ng eskwelahan. desisyon mo kung kanino ka magpapaturo." ~ "There are a lot of teachers outside school. It's your decision who to learn from"
  • "Titingnan mo ba ang basong kalahating bawas o kalahating puno?" ~How would you see a cup, half-empty or half-full?
  • "Nalaman kong habang lumalaki ka, maraming beses kang madadapa. Bumangon ka man ulit o hindi, magpapatuloy ang buhay, iikot ang mundo, at mauubos ang oras."~I realized that as you grow up, you will stumble many times. Whether you get up or not, life will continue, the world will turn, and time will pass by...

And I love Doraemon, too!He's a robot stray cat, from a Japanese manga and was first aired in the Philippines (if my memory serves me right) way back in 1992.

  • "Hindi porke kaya mong gawin ang isang bagay ay dapat mo nang gawin." It doesn't mean that you have to do it, even if you can.
  • "Huwag mong ipakitang malungkot ka sa ibang tao kung wala kang balak mag-share ng problema. Para kang nag-alok ng hopia pero hindi mo naman ibibigay." Don't show your sadness to others if you won't share your problems. It's like offering someone candies you don't mean to give.

    I used to have a real difficulty saying no, because I COULD it. I'm better now; sage advice.
