An Added Year to My Age [ and less 1 to my Life Span ! ]

February 20 is the day of the year when another number has been added to my age. I am not getting younger. I am approaching 50's. What is the waiting for me in the next years of my life? I do not know. After all, who among us can tell the future, right? However, one thing is certain, I want to spend the remaining years of my life being as positive and happy as I can. Moving forward, I told myself I am NOT going to keep the company of people who made me feel that I am doomed to nothingness because I am getting old, but instead, I will keep the company of those people who made me feel that I can still still mingle with everyone and that I am still a part of something. The kind of people who will laugh with me, not laugh at me. Despite being single and old, there is still no limit to what I can be and can do. And I think that goes with everyone. 

During my younger years, I chose not to avoid dealing with mean, controlling and difficult people. Well, some are not really mean but have a great sense of humor. So great that they made my age a laughing stock. I put up with bullies and insensitive people. I always say that it is wiser to build an ally than create an enemy. That is still true but from now on, I think the ally should be those who respect me, right? With my age now, I realized that much as being able to deal with difficult people is good, it is far more better to acknowledge that we, including myself, are as important as the people around us. And at the end of the day, nothing is more important than having that smile on our face because we had a healthy day. 

Hence, if you are reading this, my friend, whoever you are and if you think this applies to you as well, please allow me to reiterate, you are as equally important as the people around you. And at the end of the day, nothing is more important than having that good smile because you had a healthy day. You do not have to put up with people who made you feel less. I will tell that to myself as well.

Thank you for dropping by and cheers!!!

Weekend with Exclusivity... For Me!

Yesterday was the beginning of a long weekend, well at least for me. More than that, I am anticipating of new things, positive things in fact. I started the first day of the long weekend by acquiring a DVD player that I had been wanting to have. I know what you are thinking, so trivial. But hey, that is me, so easy to please. More than that, I saw a hair dryer that is soo cute, it fits my baby. You see, I am expecting a Shih Tzu come March and I am so excited. Upon checking the other stuff in the mall, I found the one that I feel would be perfect for my incoming baby. And so that night, I slept ever so soundly and peacefully.

The next day, I stumbled on a group of women dancing in the street. They call it Samba here in the Philippines. There was a young girl, early 20's I think, who was participating. There was also a lady in her 60's. They are at different ages and walks of life. I was so amused, I stopped and inquired. I am, in fact, thinking of registering.  Hey, it would be nice to explore some of the adventurous side in us, right?

I am anticipating a restful and rejuvenating days ahead and I would like to make the most out of it. Have a rejuvenating one to every one.

Discrimination of The Lower Species? Or Simply Plain Ignorance !

I went to Sto. Rosario Church yesterday to inquire about the process on how I could request to have my incoming Shih Tzu blessed. After all, she is going to be my baby. To my surprise, they were so amused that they literally laughed on my query. With this, I am deeply offended. 

The question in my mind is this, there were requests to bless non living things like cars, motorbike or even personal stuff and they were welcomed with no hesitation. These personal properties were blessed with open arms. Why then, should it be funny to bless a living creature?

Maybe these people forgot that we, humans, belong to the animal category. Remember that in our Science class, there are two kinds of existence on Earth, the living and the non-living things. The living things comprises of animals and plants. We, humans, belong to the animal type. Our difference with the other animal is that we walked in two feet and we are smarter. Feeling that we are superior to the point that we are prejudiced to the existence of the other species does not and will never make as better species. In fact, that will make us the worst. 

The idea that the request to bless a living creature has been taken as amusing, much so as ridiculous, is revolting. This kind of mindset is something that I can never comprehend. If we are really a superior species, we should prove that we have the mindset to protect, not to prejudice and ridicule.
