    Great Music

    Posted on @ 12:01 am

    The music from the neighbor started playing since this afternoon. Their company is having their annual Christmas party in their home and for sure, like their other parties, the music will not stop playing until way past midnight. Their music might be loud but it’s not blaring so no one from the neighborhood’s complaining. I like what I hear and the other neighbors probably like what they hear too. My son says he saw some people unload american audio mixers before they set up the sound system. Those are good mixers according to him. It’s probably why they have great sounds every time they held a party.

    My Way to Healthy

    Posted on @ 12:32 am

    working-outGlad I’m back to working out after a long hiatus. I’ve already given up about my weight. I don’t think I will lose pounds no matter how much I work out and cut back on food. My concern right now is to be healthy; if I ever lose weight, then it’s a bonus. I am already in the peri-menopause stage and my blood temp is starting to rise; it’s because of this that I decided to exercise again. I don’t want to be on maintenance drug and I believe that I can manage hypertension through exercise.

    It’s been almost a month now that I’ve been doing this and I noticed a lot of changes: I feel more energetic, I lost a couple of pounds, I sleep better at night, no more back pains and my plantar fasciitis has improved. Hubs and I are both happy about these changes and to inspire me more, he brought out his soldano amp and connected it to the sound system that I use when I work out. Well, he’s going to lend it to me for a long time because I don’t have plans of stopping from exercising again.

    Walking through Leicester Square yesterday evening I was surprised to see a funfair there. I don’t recall there being one there before. It is a very busy Square usually associated with film premieres.

    The Difference Between Encouragement and Indulgence

    Posted on December 11, 2013 @ 4:37 pm

    dad_sonAs parents we want to raise our kids to be better persons than us. Of course, we want to provide them with all their needs and give in to their whims from time to time and not raise them as little kings and queens. Studies show that indulgence can weaken a child’s powers to survive, deflating motivation and diminishing feelings of success.

    Encouragement means putting courage in your child. You help and guide him to do things and not DO things for him. Try to do it in such a creative way without pushing your child down. It is your unconditional love that will serve as a scaffolding that will encourage your kid to take chances, to experiment, and to fail without judgment. Beware though, encouragement doesn’t mean you have to stand beside him all the time. Most of the time, you will have to stand a little off in the background and trust him to do the right thing and only offer him a hand only when circumstances call for it.

    Indulgence, on the other hand, limits freedom by inflating a child’s sense of entitlement and reducing the patience needed to work through obstacles when he doesn’t instantly get his way. Indulgence leads to small-minded thinking. You have to remember LIFE IS UNCERTAIN. You may be on top now but who knows for how long. It’s best to prepare your child for anything.
