I'm currently reading Sam Glenn's A KICK IN THE ATTITUDE and this line really caught me. This book is part of our Continuing Education Program (CEP) in Network 21 for January. The book is a great read! It talks about why, when everyone knows that the right attitude can bring you success in life, and yet not everyone is successful?
So, am I a thermostat or a thermometer?
As we all know, thermostat controls the temperature of a room, while a thermometer goes with the temperature. In life, we have freedom to choose if we are going to take control of our life or just let anyone or anything control us. I must admit that there are times when I have so many excuses. You see, I have so many things I want in life, especially those for my son, husband and my family. So many dreams that there was a time when I already gave up thinking about them because I thought I was not born privileged enough to get such. I was allowing my present circumstances to control me, kill my dreams and dictate my life.
I was a thermometer once.
But I am glad I met special people who taught me how to be a thermostat. I am blessed to be part of an environment who encourages people to dream big and make it happen. I am now on my way to the realization of my dreams. And I am happy Vergil and I chose to follow the road less travelled.

Hmnnn... I think that is all for now. :-)
I really think it's time for me to do something about this. I cannot imagine spending another 5 years of my life doing this.
I am decided. By December 2009. I will be retiring from my busy and stressfull corporate job. I will be a full time wife and mom and a business person. I will be helping anyone who feels the same way I do and have all that it takes to go through it.
I guess I really have to work on this DOUBLE TIME!
We enrolled Miguel in a Saturday Playgroup class at Toddlers Unlimited Alabang. We just felt that it would be a nice experience for him to be able to mingle with kids his age. Not that he is shy or wary of crowd, but just for him to become prepared for prep school. And it turned out great because he is definitely enjoying it. Not even once that he is in class that he had to look for me... although I did not even thought that it would be much of a problem for Miggy since he loves being in a new place and with new people. The 10 session class will end this March and I am yet decided if I will enroll him again on the next batch since I am also currently checking for other school's toddler summer programs. I am also thinking of enrolling him to toddler 3x a week class in June. Hmnnnn... my boy is really growing fast, as I am already talking about schools here!
So far here's the list of schools I was planning to check:
1. Mind Builders Preschool
2. Bethany Montessori Learning Center
3. Little Archers Learning School
4. Wishbone Kiddie Camp
5. The Village Playgroup
We were planning to get him to a swimming class but I have to check it first with his pedia because I have read it somewhere that kids his age are prone to ear infection.
So much to do and check. Now I am really wishing I am a full time mom!
1. Is it because it's a human-vampire lovestory and this added some sense of danger and adventure into the love affair?
2. Is it because the once mythical and beautiful vampires were portrayed as "good", not having to suck blood for existence?
1. Gave birth last April 26, 2007 at The Asian Hospital to a beautiful baby boy and we named him Miguel. He will already turn 2 years old this coming April.
2. We moved to our new house last December 2008. I will be posting pics and talking about it in this blog.
3. We already are passionately involved in a business project with our partners - Amway Corporation, Network 21 and our business team.
Oh well, I got so many things to blog and i will be starting real soon....
