Apparel uniforms for nurses!

Nurses and medical doctors before only wears white as their uniforms. As far as I can remember, because it was my dream to be a nurse someday like my aunt, I was always dreaming of wearing white.  But not anymore nowadays. There are already many different styles with different colours for nurses. Dickies Scrubs are way pretty scrubs with many colors and styles. There are lots to choose from, that fits all taste.

I can't imagine how lively and comfortable they looks. Nurses must be very happy that there are already many alternatives in their kind of uniforms:)

Shopping for designer's clothing!

Designer's clothing are known to be expensive and sounds like we are also paying the name. But why we still love to shop designer's clothes? Why many chose to buy this kind instead of those masses and cheaper and practical? Specially clothes for children. It sounds impractical buying expensive while they'll out grow with it anyway.

In my opinion why I still prefer to buy designer's clothes for my children if I have the chance? Its because they usually are unique and there's something on them magical which I think my children deserves. Fred clothing for example, they have simple but unique designs for children wears. What I bought for my children is what I see about them. So why go for less when in my life they are the reasons of everything I do. And I think thats also what other mothers think. As long as your budget is good with it, and you love it, go for it!

Watch Out this KInd of People

I always like to think the best in a certain person. I tend to believe that everyone , even how bad they seemed still there's goodness in them and thats the area I choose to see rather than the other. But then I aways forget that in the same way, those people who seemed to be good can also have the most dangerous behaviour one must watch out!

One most recent dangerous behaviour I just encountered is a Manipulative person. Have you been manipulated by somebody? How would you know that you are being manipulated? How would we know and determine a manipulative person? Well, I do some research and read some articles about manipulation and would like to share some important points I got.

Common behaviours of Manipulative People: ( taken from SHINE)

1.Buttering You Up: To get their way, manipulators will often make you feel good so that they can then ask you to do something that they want.
_ they seemed to understand you, give good compliments , call you good, kindhearted and a giver. So that when they asked you on something you tend to give what they want because you don't want to prove his/her compliment wrong!
* What you can do? Give their compliments back to them before saying NO.

 2. Guilt: The saddest part of this strategy is that the victims of this tactic succumb to the manipulators' demands because they feel they HAVE to, not because they WANT to.
_ The manipulators will try try to put the blame on you or to others and make stories about you have no rights for the certain things and that you have no right to say NO to what they wants because of the certain reasons benefited to them.
* What you can do? Tell them that what they're doing is trying to force you into something you don't feel comfortable with.

3.Broken Record: Probably the most obvious of formats is the broken record tactic. If a person asks you enough or pushes their agenda enough…constantly repeating the question or request over and over again…in slightly different ways.
_ Whew, this is the most obvious you have to watch out then. Their like a broken tape, repeating their stories over and over and you have the tendency to give up not because you want to but because you're annoyed!
*What you can do: Ask the individual what they don't understand about the word "no." Tell them that asking you over and over again isn't going to change anything and that they are inappropriately over-stepping boundaries.

 Well then, are you familiar of these behaviours? Are you dealing with people who have exactly these symptoms? Then watch out of these kind of people. If you are already into it, just keep your eyes open and continue to stand your grounds strongly! Let not yourself be a victim of these kind of people who plays good being "the victim", "the innocent" and the "abused" one! Be clever to know these kind of people because their hard to determined.

CHANGE!

Change is a good thing in my opinion. Living in this changeable world, everyday and in every thing we  are doing changes, consciously and unconsciously. There are decision to make a change and there are also things that you have no choice ,  but to make a change. There are also things and situations that eventually changes took place in our lives.

Change in the other hand, is scary. When we are already use into what we are for a long time and we become comfortable with it, we love to stay and be what it is now. So when a big change is about to come or to happen, even if its for the better it will still make us think and ponder. WE don't know what is ahead of us , what if we fail? what if we don't like it? Many questions playing in our minds . Am I ready for it? am I willing to take the risks?

Many people choose not to and stay contented on what they are and what they have but there lots of people too that embraces change courageously. Well, we are about to make a change .  But I think Me and my husband are ready for it. I am scared but doing this together and with God's guidance, I know its gonna be great and for the better! Good day to all!

Happy Father's Day!

I have always been touched about the song "Father's Eyes" by Amy Grant. From the time I heard this song, tears falling in my eyes on every lyrics of it. I always relate it as me and my father. I'll be happy to share this song for the hope that you may be blessed too.

Father's Eyes

I may not be every mother's dream for her little girl
And my face may not grace the mind of eveyone in the world
But thats alright as long as I have just one wish I pray
When people look inside my heart
I want to hear them say...

SHE's GOT HER FATHER'S EYES
Her Father's eyes, eyes that sees the good in things
When good is not around
Eyes that find the source of help, when help just can't be found
Eyes full of compassion
Seeing every pain
Knowing what you're goin' through
And feel in it the same
Just like my Father's eyes.

Happy Father's day to my dear father. I really miss you Pa. Hope we can go home as we plan it and thats so soon. I know God will provide our needs. See you soo. Love you much!

I had a dream...

Lately I've been dreaming of something that makes me think about it. They said that dreams really tells something important message in our lives. And I believe on that.

During the first weeks of this year 2012, when all my schedules of activities changed up side down, I had a successive dreams that has one common incident; I was being left behind! First, I ran so fast to catch the train and already so close yet still left behind. The following dreams, from group travel and they left without me. And the last was , I was left behind on the plane I suppose to be traveling with even if I was already there just watching the plane fly.

I did share this to some friends and they gave some interpretations which I think, very helpful and make sense. I may qoute what they share ;

"To dream that you are left behind represents feelings of rejection or not fitting into a group. It may also highlight fears of not being able to keep up. You are questioning your abilities. The dream may be telling you that you are not utilizing your full potential"

And last night I had another dream; I was in the running train, the next stop will be my suppose destination which is after crossing the bridge. But it was so unusual that the train stop in the middle of the brige because many wanted to step out already and I was one of them. When I was already right at the doorstep out, a friend inside the train called me, and asked "why you will go down, we aren't there yet, its already so close! " Then it was like I was back in my senses and said; what? then realize that we were still in the middle of the bridge, so I hurried turning back and went to sit back beside a friend, then I asked and wonder, why the train had stopped while it was not a stop station, then I woke up!

Well, this made me think when I woke up. I realize that my dream was telling me that I have the tendency to surrender on this journey I have nowadays, but thanks to friends who encourages me and reminds me that its already so close, we'll get there so soon! What do you think? Do you have in mind what my dreams means? Share!

A little too much!

I kind of regret about my situation now. I mean my schedules and things that I'm doing these days are little too much for me to take. I just came from a long vacation wherein only my children I took care of and then from January this year got 100+percent working. This means, my family/children, going to school 80% and working hard job for 50% . Everyday I wake up early but home late. Everyday I feel exhausted. And I think this is no longer healthy for me and my family.

Well, I've learned my lessons. Though I'm sustained by the full support of my husband and from the loving grace of God now, still I know this is not advisable:) Until the month of May, this will be like this and things will be easier from then. I'm still thankful for every lessons I've learned in my life's journey! have a great weekend to all!

Valentines post!

I have been so busy that I cannot update my blogs as much as it should. This month of february they call it a "love month" or a valentines day. Many explanations we can find already how this name originated and many of us simply understand that it is a day tributed to lovers, love and loving. Though we tend to reason out that we suppose to live with it everyday but then to have this special day is also something good to have! It can be a reminder, a celebration or a renewal of promises to each other or any other message that can be done on this day!Well, valentines day has passed by and this post is quite late but I chose to post something about it anyway. I'll just have to throw few questions like "How was your valentines day?" " Have you something in the name of love, loving and as lovers? " I just wish everyone a fun filled days ahead... with love.



"For God so loved the world that He gave his only son, that whosoever believes in Him would not perish but have everlasting life" John 3:16

His sustaining grace!!!

Wow! its been a month on this kind of routine I have now. I can't imagine how I made it everyday, every week and now I survived for a month. But how long will I survive? Is it everyday survival or better to call it "getting used to it"! To be out from the house at 7am and be home at 10pm sounds so hard and it is! I must wake up at 6am to get my self and children ready. Everyday must drop them at their school at 7:30 then to my school at 8:30, about one hour travel from my children's school to my school, by this I am expected to be late pretty often! When my school ends at 2pm, must run to the train to be at my work on time at 3pm. I'll beon my way home usually at 8pm and lucky if I get home at 9pm. Eat then sleep will be the next thing to happen. I have almost no time to study and to do my assignments. But here I am, happy and fulfilled!

Well, I owe all of these to Him who gave me strength everyday and to Him who's sustaining grace is everlasting! I rather count His providence than my weaknesses. I gave it all to Him, and I will just enjoy how amazing His strenght everyday on me! I thank you my Lord!

The joy in Honesty!

Have you experienced, dollars coming to your paypal by mistake? Sooo..tempting!

I always heard before specially from my homeland people saying "nobody gets rich by being honest, everybody lies". Yet, I will be proud to say that if there's something good in me, that would be me being honest. Maybe because I believe that there is God who's watching over me every minute and knows everything I do.

Then when I came here in Sweden, I can prove them wrong, because one common mark of Swedish people that I think made them a rich country is that they are honest people. When I left my bag in the spårvagn and were returned to me completely, everybody said that I am lucky surely t'was a swede who happen to find it. So, the more honesty for me became my attitude.

Just before christmas 2011, that was last month, one of the advertising company that I work with,( Blog Services Inc. ) gave me a task for $20 but then the pay that arrived on my paypal was doubled, I recieved two $20. So as what I usually do, I informed them about the said mistake. Well, this was not the first time that dollars coming to my paypal by mistake. There were few already and even bigger. In the same way I returned the money to the concerns. Even, sadly I ain't recieved any compliment. But thats not so important for me though its a good thing right? What's important is that I can think peacefully without any guilt.

Back to the kind DA ; after I mailed them on that twenty bucks extra, they replied with the best mail I ever recieved! Full of appreciation and gratitude on my honesty. They let me keep the 20 bucks. Isn't it great? The joy of honesty is just amazing!

"Be honest even other's don't" Godbless everyone!

So long 2011!



It was quite a hard year for us but full of lessons learned and actually made us more stronger. It was such a fighting year full of struggles, sadness, difficulties and strife yet it was a part of our growing up emotionaly, socially and spritually. We can say it was a "bad year" for us but NO, when I look back and recall the pieces? It was really and 'amazing year' full of victory on every challenge and test of our being. A year full of miracles, faith, freedom and love! I am so thankful of everything we achieved that made us what we become, yeas for us to survive the coming years.

Now we are ready for this new year. Another exciting months, weeks, and days ahead. New perception in life, new challenges and victories. New blessings! So long 2011 and hello 2012, we're ready:) With God in our side everything will be alright! Godbless Us all!
