A CHRISTIAN'S WAY TO REDUCE STRESS

[This is a forwarded email. I thought I'd share it.]

"Never borrow from the future. If you worry about what
may happen tomorrow and it doesn't happen, you have worried in vain.
Even if it does happen, you have to worry twice."

1. Pray

2. Go to bed on time.

3. Get up on time so you can start the day unrushed.

4. Say No to projects that won't fit into your time schedule, or that will
compromise your mental health.

5. Delegate tasks to capable others.

6. Simplify and unclutter your life.

7. Less is more.. (Although one is often not enough, two are often too
many.)

8. Allow extra time to do things and to get to places.

9. Pace yourself. Spread out big changes and difficult projects over
time; don't lump the hard things all together.

10. Take one day at a time.

11. Separate worries from concerns. If a situation is a concern, find
out what God would have you do and let go of the anxiety. If you can't
do anything about a situation, forget it.

12. Live within your bud…

my brother wore my sandals

No, you're thinking wrong. :) My brother is not gay, but he was forced to wear my sandals when we had to make a U-turn in the middle of nowhere.

I was on a jeep (packed like sardines with sacks of rice, chickens, bags of junk food and boxes of various goods) that travels the worse-than-your-halsema road going to my birthplace. We left town at around 1PM and expected to arrive at around 6. Almost half way up the road that looks for the most part like a water buffalo mud pool, the jeep broke. The pile of metal (differential is it?) under its belly fell off because it has been "leveling off the stony 'hill' in between the path of the tires" for the last couple of hours. There were no houses in sight so we had no option other than to walk up the road and find a house while the guys try to do something about the jeep. After over half an hour of hiking, we came to a dwelling. There was a little sari-sari store with lots of ripe bananas for sale. We attacked the…

MARCH: Attractive personality (di yata masyado kase maraming takot sa'kin). Sexy (noon, hahaha). Affectionate. Shy and reserved. Secretive. Naturally honest, generous and sympathetic (itanong na lang sa iba, kakahiya naman:). Loves peace and serenity. Sensitive to others (dati, di na masyado ngayon, medyo na-out of tune eh!). Loves to serve others (in more general things, not much on washing dishes for someone or anything like that, c, i used to do that when I was younger but someone always told me na nagpapalapad ako ng papel so maybe i have a psychological thing with that aspect, lol). Easily angered (hah! tumpak na tumpak). Trustworthy (guessed what? I got a most trustworthy medal in 4th grade, does that count? hehe). Appreciative a…

GOODBYE, NOVEMBER

This last week has been unbelievably frenzied for me because all the tasks that I kept shoving into the back burner had caught up on me and forced me to move really quick.As always, trust me to put off everything I don’t like to do until the very end.Thank God, it’s over!Here’s what made my last week of November very hectic. But here are what made it interesting too:Eight more books of the OT that my team has translated were published in Kalanguya (although I have yet to see the new books.)My very good friend D (known to most of you as Layad or Fongakhan) spent a week and a day with B and me. We had a good time catching up on our gossip J but most specially, she helped me finish my academic work so that I was able to turn them in on time.My nephew turned 8 and we invited him over to dinner.We had his favorite spaghetti and ice cream (though super lamig na sa Vizcaya) and D made a yummy dessert out of Graham biscuits, fruit cocktail, cream an…
