Guys, I almost forgot I am joining the A to Z Challenge this April and today they encourage us to reveal our theme, not that it is mandatory but it will be of great help for our visitors or readers on what they can expect. Since most of my posts is random or whatever comes to mind in a certain moment, I must admit that I need to give myself a little more push but I’m up to it.
I believe poetry runs in my blood, with that being said, I decided to play this challenge with writing a poem with titles from A to Z. I am so excited to write the first piece come 1st of April. So watch out for it!
A poet is a liar who always speaks the truth – Jean Cocteau
Hello world! Saturday is over here in my place, Philippines meaning I’m late for my ‘Tokens of Gratitude’ feature post (I’m blaming it to my busy schedule this week). But as the saying goes, ‘better to be late than never’. So here it is…
One of the most amazing gift God has given me is my children. I would always feel grateful to Him for entrusting me with such wonderful creatures.
Without my children, my house would be clean & my wallet would be full but, my HEART would be EMPTY…
At first, it was just another way to kill boredom. I never thought that it will make me feel a sense of fulfillment and inner peace, but as soon as I’m done with my very first piece and read it, it became a hobby and eventually became my passion. Reading and writing poetry never fail to amaze me. It touches the depths of my soul and it serves as a portal to the unknown which I always find enticing. It quenches my thirst for appreciation and my hunger for attention.
For me, it is not only a mind exercise but one of the most artistic form of self-expression. I believe writing poetry runs in my blood. It never fail to catch attention and it brings happiness beyond measure.
Poetry -is an echo, asking a shadow to dance.
– Carl Sandburg
How about you? How do you kill boredom? Does it always bring you positive feelings, a sense of fulfillment, or just to let time pass by? I’m so excited to read your comments.
Truth be told, I am really not a patient person. I am actually impulsive in nature. I can utter disgusting words in a split seconds once triggered. I can burst into anger without thinking of the outcome of my actions. That’s actually one of the downsides of being a sentimental fool. It’s really hard to control my emotions. And before I knew it, the damage has been done.
It has been said that it’s not what you say that matters but how you say it. Being a call center employee for about more than ten years, I can definitely say that it’s true. Since we deal with customers via telephone, tone of voice plays an important role. An upbeat and pleasant tone should be observed all throughout the call especially in the first five seconds. Same goes with face to face interactions. Oftentimes a gentle answer could make someone forget his anger. On the other hand, saying harsh words or cussing can trigger it. Experience proved that even though we don’t mean bad once we say it in an unpleasant tone, it changes the meaning to the person who heard us. Therefore, it is of utmost importance to guard our tone of voice for us to get along with people. It’s hard for me to do that, honestly but I’m learning everyday and taking it one step at a time.
