Life Lessons #1

Hi Dear Readers!

 

Starting today, I’ll be sharing with you random thoughts that could inspire each and everyone. I hope, somehow, this could help us learn more in coping up with life and staying positive despite of all the trials that we’re facing.

 

So, LIFE LESSON #1:

 

“KEEP YOUR HEART FREE FROM HATE.”

 

Focus on what’s important in your life. Don’t waste your time hating people. It does no good to you emotionally and spiritually. Let God deal with these things. Don’t be consumed by hate because HATE or HATRED is a weak emotion. It’s a sign of failure.

 

HATRED IS SELF-PUNISHMENT. You are just letting yourself to be sad and miserable instead of being happy and enjoying life. You make yourself unproductive because HATE is your FOCUS.

 

Instead of hating things… hating people… DO SOMETHING positive that would benefit you. Let go of that hatred in your heart.

 

Spread love… Make your smile contagious. 🙂

How to Keep Your Home Appliances Clean

Cleanliness is vital to our lives and well-being. Since we spend most of our time at home, it’s important to keep our appliances clean and in tip-top shape. Keeping appliances clean also offers several advantages, such as higher efficiency, lower utility bills, and greater durability. In addition, an overall fresh atmosphere in the house will be beneficial to everyone in it!
Here are some tips from leading LPG provider Solane on how to maintain and clean your home appliances:

 

  • Refrigerator.

When was the last time you cleaned your fridge? If you rarely check it, your fridge may be the dirtiest appliance in your home right now. Get started by removing everything in the refrigerator to wipe down the inside easily. It’s also helpful to check for expired food periodically. Scrub the shelves clean with a mixture of baking soda and warm water. Don’t forget to sweep the dust under the fridge. Vacuum the refrigerator coils to reduce the stress applied on its motor and extend its life.

 

  • Microwave.

The microwave is one of the appliances you use the most, especially if you save leftovers for meals later. We need to ensure that it stays clean in and out. Don’t waste soap and water scrubbing the crusted mess inside your microwave – steam them clean. Here’s how: Slice a lemon in half, squeeze the juice into a microwavable container, and add the lemon pieces, along with half a cup of water. Microwave the solution for three minutes or until the liquid starts to boil. Let the lemon water stand for five minutes before opening the microwave door. The steam will break down the dirt, making it easier for you to wipe the gunk inside.

When the Love is Gone

Well, I guess, 90% knows and experienced the trauma of not having a happy ending. Yung fact na you have given that person o yung relationship n’yo ng chance…after chance..after chance. T-R-A-U-M-A. Unti-unti mong nararamdaman na nawawala na yung love. Ano’ng natira? Traces and shadows of pain.

 

Alam kong madaling sabihin pero mahirap (sobrang hirap) gawin, pero wala ka naman talagang ibang choice kundi ang mag-MOVE ON.

 

The first question is, “How willing are you to move on?”

 

ACCEPTANCE.

 

Kailangan mong tanggapin na wala na talaga. Kailangang tanggapin na hindi talaga kayo para sa isa’t-isa. Ganun talaga eh. Kailangang tanggapin na TAPOS NA. Yes, it damn hurts, but you have to be strong.

 

Aminin mo, maraming beses mong pinagbigyan na magiging okay ang relasyon n’yo. Umasa ka na kaya pang magawan ng paraan. Kaso, minsan, obvious na naman na di na talaga pwede… IPINIPILIT mo lang. Ikaw lang yung TANGA na ayaw pang mag-move on. Bitaw na… TAMA NA.

5 Effective Strategies to Prevent Dengue

Prevent dengue this rainy season!

 

The rainy season is definitely a refreshing respite after the blistering summer. However, it also comes with several illnesses and diseases and the most dreaded of all is dengue. Dengue is caused by a tiny bite of an infected mosquito but this little bite can cause serious health problems and could even mean death if not treated immediately.

 

“Due to the wet season, dengue-carrying mosquitoes lurk everywhere. As of now, there’s still no vaccine for dengue fever so the best course of action is prevention. You can do this by applying mosquito repellent, removing breeding grounds of mosquitoes and most importantly, keeping the immune system strong,” says Dr. Montoya, MediCard president and CEO.

 

To avoid serious health complications that dengue brings, MediCard, a leading HMO provider, gives a rundown on how to prevent it this rainy season:
