My Inevitable Dream

"So many of our dreams at first seem impossible, then they seem improbable, and then when we summon the will, they soon become inevitable."Christopher Reeve

I think most of us even when we were still kids have imagined what our dream house is.  Our dream house might have changed while growing up or because of the situation that we are into, we might have forced ourselves to forget the dream house we used to look forward to that someday will be ours.

When I was in High School, I saw this place Citta Italia in Cavite and I told myself, that I will buy my first house there. My life was not really such a success. I worked as a call center agent and moved from one call center to another trying to find the right company and right account to handle. I tend to easily get bored with a a routinary job so I keep on changing work. And the salary is not that big enough for me to save for the house I wanted to aim for in Citta Italia.

Fortunately, since my parents were in London at that time, though I was denied for my first visa application to go there, I passed the second application. I was able to bring my husband and my son as well so it wasn't really such a painful sacrifice of leaving the Philippines at that time.

I told myself at that time, I will make use of my time working in London to save up for my dream house at Citta Italia within 5 years only. I didn't really intend to stay for long working and living in a different country as I really don't feel comfortable with the idea. 

But God was really good that He blessed us with work that enabled us to save up for the house and finally we have come home to our house here in Citta Italia. And we have been living here for the past 2 years since we went back home here in the Philippines.

But as I have said, change is the only permanent thing in this world. While we are happy living in my dream house, it does not stop there. I ought to have the right to dream more especially for our kids as our family is growing.

I saw this video and I literally went to check the house how it looks like for real and how it feels like to go around the house. I knew that feeling, like how I felt when I said to myself firmly that I wil own a house in Citta Italia. I know right at this moment that whatever it takes, I will own this house in 2014 and I will celebrate my 32nd birthday in that house.

I know some of you might be raising their eyebrows while reading this, some might be inspired to have such strong conviction of one's self to declare something like this. But I can't be bothered really. I know I will do whatever it will take for me to get this house for real!

Like most of you, there is no charge to dream and make it come true. Just go for it!

Oh Internet Connection, Why So Slow?

I totally hate slow internet connection! It's quite frustrating when you are working into something and you want to really finish it fast but the internet connection is just too slow,thus, it slows your work and productivity as well. 

I'm not too sure if that situation is only here in the Philippines coz I swear, when we were in London, the internet connection was really fast or maybe because we were so near to the link exchange box  that might have affected the speed of internet connection. But even so, I know a lot can relate to what I'm saying here. Seriously, the technology here in the Philippines, is quite slow.

Other countries have been enjoying FREE WIFI to almost every places like hotels, restaurants, public places like years ago and it's like here in our country, it's only now that we are enjoying some of it coz literally not every place is WIFI ready or if it is, haha....you have to pay for it.

And one more thing, I could say that the mobile contracts or postpaid plans from the three networks here really sucks big time. The plan itself and the mobile phones available, well what can I say? Having worked at Carphonewarehouse while I was in London as one of the Sales Consultants selling mobile phone contracts and broadband plans, I cannot even begin to compare.

We sell mobile phone contracts with free phones which are really damn good and top of the lines with call and text messages that comes free within the plan. Anyway you can visit their site and see what I'm talking about but you might get confused how their plans work if you want to compare it with the plans being offered by Smart, Globe and Sun. You can drop a comment or email me at iamapriltherese@gmail.com if you want to know more about it.

Well, my rant has simply gone a long way...hahaha. All I wanted to say is that our internet connection really sucks and it's really really frustrating if it can't keep up with the speed of my mind when its working, ahaha!

Motivation Today: 02-20-2013

There Is No Such Thing As No Chance

Winners know that it is never too late in life and that there is always a chance if they are willing to change. If at any time in the future you find yourself not having a wonderful time and not enjoying a fabulous life, there’s one sure fire way to turn things around – and turn them around very quickly.

You can turn the table and turn your life around by making some life changing "changes" right here and right now. Regardless of your background or present situation, you can reassert control over your life when (not "if") you are willing to take a chance on yourself. Each new dawning day offers you a fresh start. 

In spite of the thousands upon thousands of mistakes you have made in the past, you can still grab the best life has to offer. Yes, you can!

Life offers you a second chance, a third chance, a hundredth chance; in fact it offers up as many chances as you need to do your best and be your best. It’s time to throw your entire heart and soul into making your life the super adventure it should be. A lifetime of unfettered freedom to realize your every dream is out there just waiting for you to discover it.

You need to get out there and grab it and live it with all the fervor and passion you can muster. Take a chance on yourself and watch your life take off in the process. And always remember to carry this one truth with you forever. There is no such thing as no chance as long as you’re willing to give yourself another chance.

The chance of a lifetime – a lifetime of unbridled fulfillment and achievement – is ready when you are.

Tony Robbins: Small Changes Create Different Results

Do you feel sometimes that things are not changing for the better even though you are putting all the hard work and best efforts you've got? I do and it makes me so frustrated that it seems that whatever I do to achieve what I want, it's just not happening. 

But after watching this video from Tony Robbins which has been my daily breakfast before I start my work, I make it as a habit to listen to one of his videos and it gives me new insights on how to change my life in a different direction. It made me realize how small little changes in what I am doing can create different results.

So I want to share this video with you in case you might be experiencing what I am experiencing at the moment. Small changes can create different results from what we are looking for. 

Don't give up. You never know, that one small thing that you must do will make you achieve what you want in your life. Just Like what the picture says.

How I got addicted to Instagram

I love reading articles, news, gossip or call it whatever you like but it's like an addiction for me to know the latest scoop in town.

I could spend like the whole day just reading news and articles especially about local celebrities here in the Philippines. It's quite funny though that I got interested opening an Instagram account because I keep on seeing celebrities posting pictures on Instagram and I wanted to know more or maybe see more of their photos. 

You know you get that feeling that you get involve with their lives by knowing more of what they are doing, wearing, what's happening to them plus you get the latest buzz or controversy just by lurking on twitter and instagram. I mean most controversies or news now comes from social networking sites such as facebook, twitter and instagram.

But what's really good about following them on these social networking sites is that you are able to interact with them because you can start a conversation with them directly through twitter and instagram and if they are kind enough, they do answer questions coming from their fans.

I'm sure fans feel rewarded once they are mentioned by the local celebrities they idolize even just on a comment or a retweet. It makes a feel recognized. I also love that idea.

How social networking has revolutionized everything. Now every fan or avid follower has a chance to get to know more of the celebrity they adore. 

In return, celebrities also has to be careful dealing with their fans on social networking sites, fans have such a great impact, they can either make you or break you.
