Up, Up and Away Wednesday: 2016 Fireworks

 "Don't talk of Life as if its one big package of miseries -
it is the very essence within that passes through both you,
and your enemies and every permissible illusion.
Once you're opened to, and are awakened to your true nature,
fireworks light up your path,
irrespective whether it is a "Tariqa", or a pathless one!"

Random Shots Friday: The Chair

"The political process does not end on Election Day.
Young people need to stay involved in the process
by continuing to pay attention to the conversation
and holding their leaders accountable for the decisions they make."
- Patrick Murphy

The Chair
"Leadership is not about the next election,
it's about the next generation."
- Simon Sinek

Before anything else, Happy New Year!

This year, 2016, another significant event will happen in our country. We will exercise our right to suffrage by choosing who will our next leader.

I hope that the next person to sit on the chair will have a great political will to make a change in our country's current status.

Vote Wisely!

Grayscale Thursday: Ocean Adventure Kids

"If a child cannot learn the way we teach,
we must teach in a way a child can learn."

Ocean Adventure Kids

This post is not only to show framed images I took during Matthew's field trip in Ocean Adventure but a sort of reflection too.

Yesterday, Matthew went home with many small stars and a sad face. This indicates that he did not behave well in school. Then his yaya told us that she was informed by the teacher that Matthew bit his classmates finger and hit another classmate with notebook.

As soon as I knew what he did, naiinis ako, and I want to go home right away and talk to him. But I need to control my temper and wait until got home.

Children are great imitators.
So give them something great to imitate."

Mommy and I had to talk about it why he behaves like that lately. She sends me an article on how to discipline kids positively.

From there article, I realized that Matthew should not the one to blame on but, maybe, us. Oftentimes kasi, we used to scold and shout on him whenever he started his pagiging makulit.

We get easily lost our temper on him and there are times when he wanted to talk to us, he needs to catch our attention first.

I think the change should come from us first. Just like the quotation above, kids used to copy whatever we do and we should show them a good example to copy.

From now on, I will try to understand and discipline him in a positive way.
