There once was a little girl who had a bad temper. Her mother gave her a bag of nails and told her that every time she lost her temper, she must hammer a nail into the back of the fence.

The first day the girl had driven 37 nails into the fence. Over the next few weeks, as she learned to control her anger, the number of nails hammered daily gradually dwindled down. She discovered it was easier to hold her temper than to drive those nails into the fence.

Finally the day came when the girl didn’t lose her temper at all. She told her mother about it and the mother suggested that the girl now pull out one nail for each day that she was able to hold her temper.

The days passed and the young girl was finally able to tell her mother that all the nails were gone. The mother took her daughter by the hand and led her to the fence. She said, “You have done well, my daughter, but look at the holes in the fence. The fence will never be the same. When you say things in anger, they leave a scar just like this one.” You can put a knife in a person and draw it out.

It won’t matter how many times you say I’m sorry, the wound is still there. A verbal wound is as bad as a physical one.

Friends are very rare jewels, indeed. They make you smile and encourage you to succeed. They lend an ear, they share words of praise and they always want to open their hearts to us. Hence, treasure all your friends and family around you from today!

Till death do us part

(A girl and guy were speeding over 100 mph on a motorcycle)

Girl: Slow down. Im scared.

Guy: No this is fun.

Girl: No its not. Please, its to scary!

Guy: Then tell me you love me.

Girl: Fine, I love you. Slow down!

Guy: Now give me a BIG hug. (Girl hugs him)

Guy: Can u take my helmet off and put it on? Its bugging me.

In the paper the next day: A motorcycle had crashed into a building because of brake failure. Two people were on the motorcycle, but only one survived.

The truth was that halfway down the road, the guy realized that his brakes broke, but he didn’t want to let the girl know. Instead, he had her say she loved him, felt her hug one last time, then had her wear his helmet so she would live even though it meant he would die

True Love

“Hi……how are you? Enjoying the party?” the girl asked.

“Sure…..yeah!”, he replied.
She was slightly tipsy….. must be from the whiskey on her hand. She continued,
“Why…? Don’t you need someone to pose as your girlfriend this year?” Then he answered, “No, there is no need for that anymore……”
Before he can continue, he was interrupted, “Oh yes! Must have found a girlfriend! You haven’t been searching for one for the past years, right?” The man looked up, as if he has struck gold, his face beamed and looked directly at the drunken girl. He replied, “Yes……you are right! I haven’t been looking for anyone for the past years.”
With that, the man darted across the floor and out the door, leaving the lady in much bewilderment. He finally realized that he has already found his dream girl, and she was…..the Vancouver girl all along! The drunken lady has said something that awoken him.

All along he has found his girl. That was why he did not bother to look further when he realized she was not coming back. It was not any specific girl he was seeking! It was perfection that he wanted, and yes…..perfection!!

Relationship is something both parties should work on. Realizing that he had let away someone so important in his life, he decided to call her immediately. His whole mind was flooded with fear. He was afraid that she might have found someone new or no longer had the same feelings anymore….. For once, he felt the fear of losing someone.

As it was Christmas eve, the line was quite hard to get through, especially an overseas call. He tried again and again, never giving up. Finally, he got through……precisely at 1200 midnight. He confessed his love for her and the girl was moved to tears. It seemed that she never got over him! Even after so long, she was still waiting for him, never giving up.

He was so excited to meet her and to begin his new chapter of their lives. He decided to fly to Vancouver to join her. It was the happiest time of their lives! But their happy time was short-lived. Two days before he was supposed to fly to Vancouver, he received a call from her father. She had a head-on car collision with a drunken driver. She passed away after 6 hours in a coma.
The guy was devastated, as it was a complete loss. Why did fate played such cruel games with him? He cursed the heaven for taking her away from him, denying even one last look at her! How cruel he cursed! How he damned the Gods…!! How he hated himself….for taking so long to realize his mistake!! That was in 1996.

The moral of this story is : –
Treasure what you have…

Time is too slow for those who wait;
Too swift for those who fear;
Too long for those who grief;
Too short for those who rejoice;
But for those who love…
Time is Eternity.

For all you out there with someone special in your heart, cherish that person, cherish every moment that you spend together that special someone, for in life, anything can happen anytime. You may painfully regret, only to realise that it is too late…

All about myself

Hello everyone,

Good day!
This will be my 3rd post in this blog site as a neophyte of such hobby. First and foremost, let me introduce myself first. I’m Jay Loizel G. Pido and a naturally born Filipino. My mother gave me my first glimpse of the earth on June 24, 1976 in Manila City. That would mean, I’m 32 years of age. Not too young yet not to old I guess. Still single and available but taken?…Hehehehe. I’m a Physical therapy graduate but currently working at a BPO company here in Dumaguete City as a Production Supervisor. My field actually is not on computers but I learned to love my job through experience and excelled due to hard work. In life, not all are planned and this life of mine now is beyond what I was expecting when I was still in college. I’m also into Sports being a varsitarian of two sports entities (Swimming and Badminton) at Silliman University. As of the moment, I’m a part time Badminton Trainer/Umpire together with my brother Jon Luigi. I could say this part time job I have gave me the chance to meet all kinds of people from all walks of life. Businessmen, medical practitioners, students, housewives and many others. I’m currently the sole benefactor of my mother since the time she retired from her work. It’s very difficult yet challenging and for that I’m still thankful to God. Problems may arise but I’m confident I can still face them with the support of my family. I’m also a pet lover. I have 2 dogs (Kiray and Princess) and 3 cats (Chowking, Scoobys and Tasters) all names of famous fastfood chains here in Dumaguete City. I even bath these cats when I have freetime because I sometime let them sleep with me in my bed. Too bad if they think my bed is their CR..EeeWWW..what a bad smell.hahahah. Anyways, I also play basketball, volleyball, lawn tennis and table tennis. Infact, during my college years, I all played these games in our intramurals and  excelled. With that I would say, I’m a true-bloodied sport-minded individual. Anyways, thank you guys for reading this post. I’ll let those still in my mind be express some other time. Still have to work.. See yah!!!

My current work

Hello All..

I just wanna write what my normal working day is all about being one of the production supervisors In a worldwide known BPO company catering Journals Publishing here in Dumaguete City, Philippines. The day would start by seeing myself indulge in a very cold water shower 1 hour before login time.  Ofcourse I can have those time because my place is in a suburban area eventhough it is a city, it’s traffic-free. I just can ride my own motortcycle and go straight to my work. Like other BPO companies here in the Philippines, we work in 3 shifting schedules. Meaning, for 24 hours, our office is open to cater our clients. It may sound weird but I myself can’t imagine I’ll be working in this company for almost 4 years now. I’m a Physical Therapy graduate and the nature of work I am into now really is outside my forte. But I’m very much thankful because it is only in this office that I learned things I didn’t know in my college days. Computers, sofwares, pre-editing, monitoring of files and more. I admit it was a very tough work for me but with perseverance and eagerness to learn, I became a team leader in a year and then now a supervisor. It was a big challenge for me working with so many energetic people. Most are even fresh graduates and very active. My position also brought the best of me in terms of monitoring my people, counselling, handling pressures and achieving the deliveries asked by our clients. There are even times I have to work despite being sick just to ensure our articles beat the deadline. How tough life can be. We are being measured not on what we achieve but on what we can handle. Life is a mystery. Sometime you’re happy sometimes you’re down. But one thing I can say, God gave us the knowlegde to think what is wrong and right. But rememeber, sometimes it takes courage and risk to fulfill one goal to the point that this might hurt the ones we loved.  I love my work and I know I will still be here in the years to come. The friends, the relationships built while being here are very precious that it’s very hard to leave them. Learn to love your job and the next thing you’ll realize, you’re loving it’s pay…hehehe

The negative effects of caring too much

The negative effects of caring too much..

September 17th, 2008 by jaymoen

I was about to go to my office when I happened to catch online my very close friend. We chatted and for a moment came to some question and answer postions. There, I was told that she’s thankful that I’m showing a lot of concern and care for her but asked me to stop. There and then, I was feeling like being stabbed. Who would not be? When you care for the person so much, you’re not thinking of anything. You are not asking for anything but a simple thank you. Yes, I admit that sometimes and even most of the times, I felt being left by her because she wouldn’t share anymore her problems and secrets to me. That was the reason why I asked her and needless to say, got the exact answers from her. It hurts to care too much for a person after you are told such can make her or him breathe little (nasasakal in tagalog). Now it’s a learning process for me to cope-up with. Now I don’t know what I’ll be doing. I can always see her and it hurts that I can’t do the same things I wanna do to her before. But as human as I am, I know my letting her go is the only way to save our precious friendship. Only God knows what’s in store for me. Maybe I have to control my feelings in caring too much for a person the next time. Suppressing this feeling may take time but I know I can. God will help me and to you readers, always remember to leave something for you first when you care or even share love to your partners and friends. Take it from me, I’ve been into this situation. To her whom I considered my special sister and friend, always rememeber that no matter what happens, you will still be loved and cared by your KUYA. Thanks for giving me light on this. Afterall, I thought loving and caring unconditionally can help and make our loved ones happy. It’s a big NO NO pala. Thanks and God bless!!
