The games adults play

Sometimes I wonder why we need soldiers. Civilians who have never experience war, or even the atrocities of war are more than capable of waging it without mercy. They seem to have no problem in burying their close friend to survive. They have no idea what it is to kill another human being. They have no idea what is meant to face your death. They have no idea that after those battles, firefights, and killing individuals never escapes you. No matter how much you try to blot out those memories they popup in your dreams. And are magnified into nightmares. And the only time you sleep is when are so exhausted you can’t help but doze off. And you pray those terrible thoughts don’t appear. You welcome the thought of death so that you hurt no one. Especially the ones you love.

You wonder what these people are thinking who never experiene war can enjoy the suffering others. And when this happens you wonder how hate can be so much fun. I’d rather die by the bullet than be a part of the cancer of hatred for each other permiates the body.

Life is so sacred. I cry inside when I see cruelty in the hearts of the ignorance of war. Physical suffering means nothing. Death I welcome before i willfully hurt another human being.

Sometimes I wonder was it worth the destruction of my well being, of my family, and of my self.

I pray that  you will never want to die to escape your private hell.

I can only have faith in God to keep  me sane and at peace.

I pray for God’s mercy and grace.

Intelligence of two natures

Yesterday I finished my three days of contributing myself to the betterment of others. And in all these days I always learn something.

Intelligence, I always knew I had. But it is not of natural abilities. Learned abilities. Something that needs to be cultivated all the time or it will be lost. But yesterday I found a more incredible type of intelligence. One that comes from the heart. Natural intelligence. On that is inherited from the gods.

A young nurse who is so flamboyant that she could levetate you to the top of buildings. Sometimes I fear she may think that I am after her for illicit means. Not in the world. I see innocence and purity. I see beauty in the heart. She sings her way from patient to patient. Always with a smile. And always have solutions out of this world. She comes up with homemade baby food to everyone or a new way to make a drink or keep your sanity with children.

I told her yesterday that I will miss them when I am gone. The clinical manager with his sarcastic sense of humor. We all love him. To her ray of sunshine.

This is natural intelligence. Never having to think of some inventive idea. Just come out of thin air. People like this is has a gift. A gift  to bring happiness to all.

A ray of sunshine. I will miss all of you when I go on my new adventures.  But the three years I have endured at West, some incredibly  good, some terribly bad, I will cherish where ever I am in the world.

I am blessed by the place I thought it would be so mundane ended up as a gift from God.

Thank you West for all the joyful moments I experienced. Whether they be sad or happy there are no regrets.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

My way of life. Enjoy every minute

I think once in a while you need to come back to the basics. From a long hiatus I am back. Ready to forge on. Thank you for supporting me in my past years. And being hopeful that I will be back.

Every Friday through Sunday my body is not mine. It belongs to a great team. A team that expects you not to take a breather. A team that you keep pushing and pressing every minute. Never giving up. Never thinking of yourself. Always thinking out of the box. Thinking about the unpredictability of the events facing you. And anticipating the unexpected.

Being tireless and never letting your fellow teammates know of your own pains. Keeping a smile. Continue motivating others while people in authority of your own team tries knocking you down. And you not letting any selfish in your face put you down. Show them that you are not affected by their small mind of delusions of grandeur.

My way of life. Enjoy every minute

Every Friday through Sunday my body is not mine. It belongs to a great team. A team that expects you not to take a breather. A team that you keep pushing and pressing every minute. Never giving up. Never thinking of yourself. Always thinking out of the box. Thinking about the unpredictability of the events facing you. And anticipating the unexpected.

Being tireless and never letting your fellow teammates know of your own pains. Keeping a smile. Continue motivating others while people in authority of your own team tries knocking you down. And you not letting any selfish in your face put you down. Show them that you are not affected by their small mind of delusions of grandeur.

This enduring weekend event demands more every time you go out their knowing that your support is their. And some of your team is making sure you don’t get the credit. But still you are bigger than them.That is what makes it worth your efforts.

So the next time your manager or head coach either knocks you down or takes the credit away from you to give to their cronies and undeserving, just remember who you are doing all this for. For the people you serve and yourself. Be proud of yourself. And stand up to all those with great pride. And look at those straight into their eyes. And say I am the best. And I don’t have to shout it out. Just perform your best.

 

Actions speaks louder than word. Are you talk the talk? Or walk the walk?

What makes a person not give up

Every Friday through Sunday my body is not mine. It belongs to a great team. A team that expects you not to take a breather. A team that you keep pushing and pressing every minute. Never giving up. Never thinking of yourself. Always thinking out of the box. Thinking about the unpredictability events facing you. And anticipating the unexpected.

Being tireless and never letting your fellow teammates know of your own pains. Keeping a smile. Continue motivating others while people in authority of your own team tries knocking you down. And you not letting any selfish in your face put you down. Show them that you are not affected by their small mind of delusions of grandeur.

This enduring weekend event demands more every time you go out their knowing that your support is their. And some of your team is making sure you don’t get the credit. But still you are bigger than them.

That is what makes it worth your efforts.

So the next time your manager or head coach either knocks you down or takes the credit away from you to give to the undeserving, just remember who you are doing all this for. For yourself. Be proud of yourself. And stand up to all those with great pride. And look at those straight into their eyes. And say I am the best. And I don’t have to shout it out. Just perform your best.

Weak leadership

Weak leadership does not always means heads of states. It also means as low as a supervisor on a shift. A weak leadership can be seen by the amount of chaos surrounding every facet of life. Today everywhere the world is out of control. And leaders are speaking loud. But no muscle behind their words.

So when you see disasters after disasters look toward your leaders. And see what they are saying. And when you feel like their words have no meaning. Or they are sitting back and hoping it goes away. Remember in the next election what was done. When our leaders can not control the situation we must take responsibility to stabilize the situations. We must take it upon ourselves to stand up and take control. By learning what not to place in office next time.

We must follow what Kennedy said in his inauguration. “Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country.”

Weak leaders become very powerful when the people become the spectators. By your actions you can control your leaders.

Think hard. Your world is crumbling beneath you.

What does retirement mean to me?

Retirement, is as big of a word as the big C, Cancer. The big R. Retirement, unlimited free time. You have to make wise decisions. Do you want to spend your time valuably? Or waste the rest of your lives? That is easy to do.

The first year I went aimlessly wasting my time. After a year of aimlessness I decided to make a different type of life. I got a part time job for the weekends. And weekdays are free.

I value my free time more than ever that I am in a very mundane job. Thank God I am not young and depending on this job. I am sadden by their euphoria. Such a waste of life.

But even this mundane job I learn to make the most. I learn to make an adventure and make each day personal.

And this is what you have to do with your free time. Make the most of what you have. Each day create an adventure. Even the smallest adventure is a new event in your life.

Life can be exciting without having a grandiose time. Every small facet can make a difference.

Live for the day. Don’t waste your life with unnecessary drama. And don’t waste your time with people who waste their time creating drama.

So retirement, as exciting and as good as you want it to be.

Make it happen.
