Shall I wait or not?

I’ve talked so much about waiting because that is mainly the reason why I am here and why you are all here. I’ve made a post several times about waiting and that is prolly one of the most common question some men and women here have asked?

Is there really a destiny for us?

Can true love be found online?

Am I going to be married?

Am I going to receive God’s best?

Will I let go and let God?

Shall I trust again?

How long shall I wait?

 

I’ve told myself several times, I will let go and let Him work what’s best for me. I am not going to wait for anyone, but instead I am going to enjoy my walk with Him and get on with my life. I have stumbled several times already just because I followed my own imperfect will, so this time I surrender everything to Him and just want to trust Him.

I am going to relate this idea of waiting with the recent clumsiness that happened to me. I ordered 2 pairs of shoes from my cousin, one was a wedge and the other one was a formal black shoes. I don’t buy a whole lot of shoes because I don’t work in an office, but just recently I worked as a teacher so I needed to invest on good shoes.The order did not arrive yet so, I was a dissatisfied
customer, but I just have to wait for it to arrive because the good thing about ordering from her is
that I could pay it the next month.

But Payday came and salary was deposited. I was walking at the mall near our place and suddenly I found myself inside a shoe store. And fell in love with a pair of wedge shoes. And pulled some bills from my wallet and paid for it. The next day I was so excited to wear it. I made sure my nails were clean with my favorite blue green nail polish. I was wearing a good dress. The color of my bag
matched the color of the new pair of shoes (pretending to have a good fashion sense). I was strutting with finesse, I was strutting like a lady, then suddenly some small part of my shoes fell on the floor and I noticed that the strap had let go of my ankle. Boom! It was the end of a 10 dollar wedge shoes. I have to find a way (Mentos way- Filipinos love to quote it that way when there’s
a sudden misfortune or clumsiness e.g. one shoe got damaged, you also make the other shoe be damaged, it’s a popular TV ad) to be able to walk despite the damage. Embarrassment was an additional perk by the way.

I know God has been telling me alot of times already that I just need to wait for the shoes I already ordered, yet I went on my own and got so excited, I even felt good after buying it, for some reason it felt so perfect. Then, BOOM! The shoes died on me.

In the same way, I feel like that in waiting for the special guy God wants me to be. I shall trust His will in my life, I shall trust His perfect and pleasing will in my life. I don’t have to go against His will. I don’t have to go on my own again. It might end up like that of the pair of shoes.

Lord I shall surrender all my personal desires to you (this is very hard), and I shall trust for Your will
be done in my life.

How does Filipino value education?

I remembered telling myself two nights ago; “I despised teaching, I will never teach again.”The days are so tiring and I feel like I don’t have the luxury of time to do the things I want done. But today, my students showed an amazing transformation. From day 1 they were all silent, no one’s talking, they didn’t participate, they were all laid-back. Today I looked at them with pride and inspiration. My students inspired me, they inspired me to love what I do, to give the best in everything that I do. They inspired me to become that catalyst of change I have always envisioned myself to be.

Ok,the whole point actually of writing this is my attempt to let people know how a filipino values education. I have 40 students, the majority of them came from the provinces with parents working in the farm, some parents working as an OFW in Middle East. Filipinos give high regards to education, that even if the parents have to sacrifice under the scorching heat of the sun, that even if they have to leave the country and be able to find means to get the money they need to send their children to school, that even if they would have to take care children that were not theirs they will do it for education’s sake. This probably the reason why this line became famous, “Poverty is not a hindrance in attaining success.”

 

Education for Filipinos ( I guess for some cultures as well) is the best legacy that parents can relinquish totheir children. So that I guess is the reason why there are so many career women nowadays, many women that establish a career first before tying herself to marriage. That explains why there are so many 30’s, 40’s, 50’s here that are still unmarried. Well,maybe, just maybe, that during their youth they were busy arming themselves with education, building career that they forget about romance.

I am curious what other girls think?

 

Are you tired of waiting for the ONE?

I know most of us that are in here are waiting for the ONE. The one true love, like that of Cinderella. I am just going to relate my experience as a mother because some of us that are here, are quite frustrated because you feel like no one seems to notice you. 

Let me tell you this: Just let go and let God.

I remembered quite too well the time I was pregnant some 4years ago, I waited nine loooooooooooooooooong months before I can deliver my baby. And that process is called Gestation Period.

What can I do with the long wait? I cannot rush things and push my baby out the soonest I wanted. I was not frustrated. I was not depressed. I did not rush things up. The only thing I did was WAIT. I rested, trusted and believed God that my baby will come out with complete body parts, healthy and beautiful like me. (no pun intended)

“Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer believe that you have received it and it will be yours.” Mark 11:24


Don’t feel frustrated and depressed. God is definitely hearing all our prayers. Don’t get tired of waiting. God’s perfect time has not arrived it. Let go of that wanting, and Let God fulfill your prayers. Be thankful and grateful everyday. 

Waiting for a good (hot) man.

What is Filipino Time?

So I am here at McDonalds waiting for a friend to arrive. We made an agreement to meet at exactly 2 oclock sharp. But it’s already 3 oclock, she still hasn’t arrived. Filipino time describes how Filipinos are usually late in events and meetings. This has become a notorious habit to some Filipinos. I could not understand these things because my surrogate parents are American, and I am surrounded by Americans and I worked in the BPO industry for 7 years so for me being late is a NO NO. I am usually an hour early or 30 minutes early when there is a meeting or event. That adds up some productivity, some Filipinos however don’t see that being late is a bad habit and can also mean lost productivity.

This habit needs to be corrected.

Living in Davao for one year and 2 months now made my life laid-back, thus, made me conform to the idea of Filipino time.

Arggggh! 1 hour of waiting.
