This book was the perfect gift given by my close girl friends during my baby boy's last rite. I am guessing they did not know what to tell me because no note was written on the front page where you usually place little memo. I appreciated it. Several words were uttered that I am sure were meant to be comforting but those words made me feel otherwise. Silence was better. When I got home, I started reading the first few pages but did not have the strength and composure to continue. So, I dropped it.
Whether it be at work, business, at home, in our relationships, how we view our lives... we all have to be resilient to survive, surpass, and live it. This is a mindmap explaining what a resilient willpower is and how to have it.
Some, I am rewriting below to give emphasis:
I was reading the Art of Seduction book and came to interest in one of the characters of a seducer, The Rake. I came to know of a rake for years and I am looking forward to the near future where I can look at the rake and no longer care. It's painful, yes. Afterall, your heart was on stake. There's no point of hating really. Just be grateful you were plucked out of it. You play with fire and you sure will get burned.
Tuesdays with Morrie is a story of how real-ilfe Professor Morrie Schwartz taught and changed the world until his last breath. At an old age, Morrie fell into illness that attacks the neurological system of the body called amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or ALS. The author, Mitch Albom, describes the illness as melts your nerves and leaves your body a pile of wax. A person could be alive and breathing, probably can still blink, but can no longer move his body.
A video created by Jimmy Sieczka had gone viral over the internet through Facebook and Twitter. It tells of his 20 Things Why I Hate the Philippines. It caught my attention because his video was based in the city I love the most, Cebu!
Struggling in a situation I was in, I've been wanting to read a book to console my restless soul. I do not like anything too preachy. I've opened books with interesting covers and titles, read a few pages but nothing felt right for me. I always find myself closing and putting it back on the shelf. A good friend of mine who manages OMF Literature, the store I was in, came to me and suggested Facing Your Giants by Max Lucado. Being a fan of the book and the author, she gave me an insight of what the book was about.
