Why do we need our family?

          Having a family is a gift that should be treasured and should be given an importance. First of all what is family? Why do we need our family? What are their roles in our life that influences us? What does a family really mean at all? What will happen if they fail to do their part in strengthening their family relationship?

         Family is a group of people, living together or in close contact, taking care of one another and providing guidance for their dependent members. As Filipino family we are described being basically nuclear but functionally extended. This means that most families consist of the parents and their children, but there is recognition and respect for the ties between the nuclear family and the whole network of relatives from both sides of the family (Patterson 1995). Eventually our family is important on the way God had given them to us, to love and care for us. We need a family to become a better person who knows how to be discipline in every ways. Our family was the ones who teach us to learn the things we need to face our future live full of battle in reality. In a family, the place where they dwell is called “Home” (Dorothy Rogers). Family played an important role in human development, especially on the children within the family. The parent should do their responsibilities to their child/children properly. Every action the parents will do maybe imitated by their children. Parents were the person who guides, love and supports their children as a dependent members of the family.

        Family stands an important role in the society, in which it serves as link between the individual and larger society (Leopando, 1999). The parents were the first person who will be showing the good examples to their children. Parents should do their obligation and responsibilities to strengthen and made their family a perfect family. Family is very important because you can easily get opened- up with them because they will make sure one will get the comfort they give. Family is important because even though the world falls down on you they are the only people who can comfort and would really love you the most. We should value our family because they are the only unique God given to us. We should consider how to values each and every one family members within a family. If a family would fail to do their responsibilities there is a tendency that a good relationship may shift directly to bad. That’s why we should love our parents, siblings and ourselves in considering how we can strengthen one’s relationship. Having a happy family is one of the envious things in this world. Complete and happy family would simply mean that a relationship where all good and they keep on strengthen it.

      We should all remember that family is a gift from God. We were all lucky to have a good family. Try strengthening your love on your family and loving one another to stay a good and forever relationship and we should give importance to our family by showing through acts or obeying through words. We should value and treasure our family because in the end they will be our greatest best friend whenever we needed them. “ the family that prays together stays together” (Family Rosary crusade) and remember to ask guidance to our GOD almighty.

Happiness! :D

What is the true meaning of happiness in one’s life?

The Essence of Happiness

            Happiness is one of the most important aspects in your life. All of us want to be happy but what is the true essence of happiness? If you are happy then you are contented with what you have. Being happy is a choice and in order to do that you must find your purpose in life and search for your true happiness.

Your ability to achieve your own happiness is the key measure of your success. The decisions we make play a major role in our goal to our happiness. The key to happiness is to dedicate yourself to the development of your talents and abilities by doing what you love to do, and doing it better. As Laurie Harley of Aardvark Writing said, Happiness is achieved by loving yourself first. You should discover who you are. Once you know what you like, you’ll have a better idea of how to love yourself more.  Cyrano of Rostand’s play said “I am what I am because early in life I decided that I would please at least myself in all things.” Your happiness depends upon your ability to please yourself in all things. No one can define happiness for you, only you know what makes you happy. Happiness is a choice, it’s up to you. The best way to assure the happiness of others is to be happy in yourself and then to share your happiness with the people around you.

“So many people walk around with a meaningless life. They seem half-asleep, even when they’re busy doing things they think are important. This is because they’re chasing the wrong things. The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning.” – Morrie (Tuesdays with Morrie). Devote yourself on things that you can think that makes you happy. Don’t take for granted the things that matters most. Don’t waste the life that God has given to you. Search for your happiness and love the people that are part in your life. Nothing in this world is permanent. Value the people who are always there for you. To be truly happy, you must learn how to sacrifice. We all have experience or will be experiencing the darkest times but you should be brave to face it. Learn to let go and accept things. Keep in mind that there will be great things coming in your way. Just be yourself and learn to love wholeheartedly.

These are the essence of true happiness. Learning how to be open-minded, love others, love yourself, sacrifice and letting things go. You are in charge of your own life and your own happiness. Keep in mind that somehow happiness is on its way to your life, just learn to appreciate. Let go of your fears. Enjoy life. Love all the people around you. Make good relationships to others. Uncover the real you. Yourself is the key for the happiness.  🙂

 

 

 

You should date a girl who reads, or better yet, date a girl who writes. :) *repost :D

You should date a girl who reads, or better yet, date a girl who writes. 🙂

“Date a girl who reads. Date a girl who spends her money on books instead of clothes. She has problems with closet space because she has too many books. Date a girl who has a list of books she wants to read, who has had a library card since she was twelve.

 

Find a girl who reads. You’ll know that she does because she will always have an unread book in her bag.She’s the one lovingly looking over the shelves in the bookstore, the one who quietly cries out when she finds the book she wants. You see the weird chick sniffing the pages of an old book in a second hand book shop? That’s the reader. They can never resist smelling the pages, especially when they are yellow.

 

She’s the girl reading while waiting in that coffee shop down the street. If you take a peek at her mug, the non-dairy creamer is floating on top because she’s kind of engrossed already. Lost in a world of the author’s making. Sit down. She might give you a glare, as most girls who read do not like to be interrupted. Ask her if she likes the book.

 

Buy her another cup of coffee.

 

Let her know what you really think of Murakami. See if she got through the first chapter of Fellowship. Understand that if she says she understood James Joyce’s Ulysses she’s just saying that to sound intelligent. Ask her if she loves Alice or she would like to be Alice.

 

It’s easy to date a girl who reads. Give her books for her birthday, for Christmas and for anniversaries. Give her the gift of words, in poetry, in song. Give her Neruda, Pound, Sexton, Cummings. Let her know that you understand that words are love. Understand that she knows the difference between books and reality but by god, she’s going to try to make her life a little like her favorite book. It will never be your fault if she does.

 

She has to give it a shot somehow.

 

Lie to her. If she understands syntax, she will understand your need to lie. Behind words are other things: motivation, value, nuance, dialogue. It will not be the end of the world.

 

Fail her. Because a girl who reads knows that failure always leads up to the climax. Because girls who understand that all things will come to end. That you can always write a sequel. That you can begin again and again and still be the hero. That life is meant to have a villain or two.

 

Why be frightened of everything that you are not? Girls who read understand that people, like characters, develop. Except in the Twilightseries.

 

If you find a girl who reads, keep her close. When you find her up at 2 AM clutching a book to her chest and weeping, make her a cup of tea and hold her. You may lose her for a couple of hours but she will always come back to you. She’ll talk as if the characters in the book are real, because for a while, they always are.

 

You will propose on a hot air balloon. Or during a rock concert. Or very casually next time she’s sick. Over Skype.

 

You will smile so hard you will wonder why your heart hasn’t burst and bled out all over your chest yet. You will write the story of your lives, have kids with strange names and even stranger tastes. She will introduce your children to the Cat in the Hat and Aslan, maybe in the same day. You will walk the winters of your old age together and she will recite Keats under her breath while you shake the snow off your boots.

 

Date a girl who reads because you deserve it. You deserve a girl who can give you the most colorful life imaginable. If you can only give her monotony, and stale hours and half-baked proposals, then you’re better off alone. If you want the world and the worlds beyond it, date a girl who reads.

 

Or better yet, date a girl who writes.”
