Tips for women who like to pamper themselves with Keratin Hair Treatment

Tips for women who like to pamper themselves with Keratin Hair Treatment

I went to a beauty salon yesterday to have my nails done, while I was there a beautiful young lady had her hair fixed with the Keratin thingy. While waiting for my turn, I noticed that my eyes became teary as if I was weeping, and I showed sign of sneezing. And I asked the lady, why is it like that and she said because the chemical is strong, she added “that’s what you get when you want to be beautiful, it is called tiis-ganda Maam.” Oh ok, I wouldn’t sacrifice my health because I want to look beautiful. Not with a Keratin. So I researched about it and here’s what I got. Keratin has Formaldehyde. Formaldehyde is use in embalming dead bodies. If the Keratin chemical they prepared has an unsafe level of formaldehyde, it is not good. The reason why I am writing this because, I know my immune system is well balanced by Reliv Now, yet I had fever last night and now I can hardly breathe because my nose has clogged because of colds.

It’s Ok to treat your hair once in a while. It’s ok to be vain because we all have this desire to look good infront of people. If you are looking forward to doing a Keratin Hair Treatment, look for a product that is formaldehyde-free. Look for a salon that offers Keratin treatment with less formaldehyde on it. Right now, I despise having Keratin Treatment, my nose is still in trouble.

I am confident with a hair like this, I promise I won’t do anymore changes. Oh! I take it back, can I just color my hair?

Happiness is a choice you make.

beautifulWhat is happiness to you? What makes you happy? What gives you the sense of contentment? I also asked myself the same questions, What can make me truly and deeply happy? What is it that makes me happy? Money? Success? Accomplishment? I am still in my quest to finding what is happiness. I want to pursue my dreams and give my daughter the life that she deserves. This is certainly something that I want. Something that every single mothers want. I want to fulfill my dreams, to be successful in my chosen field and be able to provide for my daughter and live comfortably. Who wants to live in discomfort anyway? Then I learned that happiness for me is getting the things I want, happiness for me is being successful, happiness for me is fulfilling my dreams, happiness for me is living in comfort. Is this the kind of life that I want? Is this my purpose in life?

Writer Leo Rosten wrote, “The purpose of life is not to be happy, but to matter, to be productive, to be useful, to make a difference in this world.” I have also asked myself several times, especially when I visit a wake in the neighborhood, would my disappearance leave the world poorer or just less crowded? Now my view of happiness has changed. To be happy means to live a meaningful life.

Now another important question we need to answer, How to live a meaningful life?

This is my guide but you can also try this.

1. CHOOSE TO LIVE A GOD- CENTERED LIFE

Yes, I am a baby born again Christian and still growing and still a work in progress. But I am gearing towards having a mature and personal relationship with God. Because having a personal relationship with Him can free us from the anxiety of meaningless existence. Today I am reminded “That in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to God’s purpose.”

We are all humans, imperfect, flawed, sinful, selfish…Yet having a relationship with God will draw us out of our preoccupation with our own interests and will enable us to minister to the needs of others.

2. CHOOSE TO BE THANKFUL

Make it a practice. Get two sheets of paper. On one paper write your fears, doubts, worries, problems. On the other sheet write all the things you are grateful for. And then check the result. I’ve tried it and I was surprised with the result. Be faithful to those little things God gave you so you can be trusted with bigger things.

3. CHOOSE TO BE HAPPY

Live.Love.Laugh. If you’re happy and you know it clap your hands. Just simply clap your hands. Every single thing we have can be taken away from us. Money? can be robbed. Success? can disappear. Our friends? Our family? The people around us? They are not ours. One thing that we can keep is our attitude towards any given circumstance. So while reading this, YOU CLAP YOUR HANDS! BE HAPPY!

oh!These flowers are burst of sunshine! It makes me happy!

4. CHOOSE TO FORGIVE

Bitterness, grudges can suffocate us. I am human. I still have forgiveness issues and I am working on it, working very hard.

Another reminder today, “For in the same way you judge others, Christ said, You will be judged.” Matthew 7:2.

And it’s definitely hard when the one thing that you can’t forgive is yourself.

5. CHOOSE TO LOVE OTHERS

I know loving involves risk. But what’s worse is not taking risk at all.

6. CHOOSE TO WORK AT SOMETHING MEANINGFUL AND FULFILLING

Maria and I started our Sunday School last Sunday and it was a success and it is a very fulfilling feeling to be able to help others.

I CHOSE TO SERVE.

7. CHOOSE TO BE OPTIMISTIC

It’s very simple. When life hands you a lemon, make a lemonade. I am sure that there are a whole lot of people out there who experienced misfortunes more than you do. So just be thankful, be happy, be optimistic. Transform obstacles into opportunities.

Life is beautiful. And how to make it more beautiful is to live a meaningful life.

Now tell me what is your criteria of happiness?

A father needs love too

1146500_566695353366745_755417987_nI regarded myself as a Born again Christian yet I don’t live like real Christians do. I don’t do my quiet time as often as everyday. I still cuss and curse. I still disrespect other people. I still gossip. I simply don’t practice what I preach. The past two Tuesdays have been so difficult for me especially that I was with a group of wonderful people with so much wisdom to share and it felt like I am a mediocre Christian. Yet, today the Lord touches my heart and said “Hey Little girl, no matter what you do, you are my daughter.”

Yes…I am trembling inside while typing my thoughts away. Because today I realized how much love I receive everyday yet neglect to reciprocate. Not that I am compelled to do it but to me I feel like I have the responsibility to share love, to love someone unconditionally. My constant prayer request is, for my father to receive Jesus, for my father to find his worth, for my father to become more fatherly to us, for my father’s transformation. I haven’t even accepted him as my father, I haven’t even showed love, I haven’t even respected him. Oh! What a lowly Christian am I? Lord, forgive me. Forgive me father that I shun these things I thought were simple and cause my father to shy away from everything. Lord, teach my heart to love without conditions, teach my heart to care unfailingly. Lord, that these words will not be just words but this shall be put into action. Honestly? When was the last time I gave my father a hug? 8 years ago on my graduation day? I did not think that my father also went through a whole lot and did not even receive encouragement from us. He probably is not a difficult father after all. Sigh!

Breathe Breathe Breathe!

I need to breathe deeply and inhale and exhale with gratitude…I still have the chance to make amends. Tomorrow means chance. Something to look forward to. Lord, just continue to guide me.

-Magic-

You are loved

bare

I received so much love today so to you who is reading this, I love you. These plants I saw this afternoon were just ordinary but I find them beautiful and loved. To those who are loved, you are beautiful. We are all loved by this amazing person who we only call whenever we need something. But I am in awe everyday because I every time I open my eyes and still breathe…I am loved.

Thank you Lord for today.

Peace and Tranquility is found inside your heart

God, give me a new heart that I may be able to forgive others and forgive myself most especially. I release forgiveness, even to those who have not asked for it. Lord, that I may be forgiven by others whom I hurt the most. That all broken relationships will be restored, in thy Name. I cannot continue to live each day knowing that I cannot forgive others and myself. I cannot function normally knowing that someone is bothered by my existence. Lord, heal my heart, give me Peace…Peace which transcends all kinds of understanding. I am aware of my Continue reading

Life is short so ENJOY

tic tac tic tac tic tac says the clock. Time is running fast. Time is running so one should do something. There’s a recent death in the neighborhood I would like to share, a six year old boy who had brain tumor and fought a good fight and finally God decided to see him so off he went and bid goodbye to this chaotic yet beautiful world. Well,what I am trying to say is…Time is gold. It is precious. It is too precious that we should not spend our days regretting our past decisions, our misfortunes, our mistakes. There is so much we can do today. I have over seven near death experiences yet I feel like I have never really lived at all. The death of this little boy made me realize that I am so lucky and blessed, it also reminded me that life is too short. I have lived over 27 years therefore life has been good to me. We don’t own our lives, our tomorrow is unknown and untold. So spend each day with no more nonchalance and mundane, make it extra ordinary. With these realizations I want to make my bucket list.

Things I want to have,Things I want to do, Places I want to see, Experiences I sure want to try.

Goldfish

I made a promise to myself that everyday of my life I should learn something new, be it from the Internet or from the activities/tasks I perform everyday, be it a fact, a trivia, just about anything. We never stop learning and sad to say, I don’t feel like I know a whole lot plus I don’t have any exemplary talent so I made a decision to do something that will help me discover my potential. So what do we have today?

I used to really think that goldfish has a three second memory span and even envied them for that matter. The fact that after three seconds they would see a whole new world, a fresh start, a new beginning. Oh I would love to have that kind of memory. LOL. I am just kidding. I love adventure. I love to make mistakes in life. I love to learn something new without having to start over and erase those memories. So I do not need a 3 second memory span to be able to appreciate life over and over again.
