BLeSSiNGs iN DisGuise

Another turning point in my career... another career suicide according to most people... but for me it's also another turning point in my life..
I did not expect that quitting from my job would not only affect my career but also my life specially my health and my lifestyle..
I knew that sooner or later I was going to inherit most if not all of the sickness from my family... Diabetes, Hypertension, Liver issue etc... it's like... you name it and my ancestors would have it... but I never expected that i would have them at my age now (way too young per my doctor)... but what can i do? it's already here! i already have some of them (thank God that it's not ALL).. so.. DAMAGE CONTROL would be the only thing left for me to do.
I am not a very religious nor pious person but I do believe in God. God has been good to me and has a funny way of showing me that I am blessed. That my decisions even if they were career suicides I can still see and feel that they are somehow blessings in disguise. The trials thrown at my path so far were hard but for some reason I AM STILL THANKFUL.
When I quit from my first job I had no backup plan... no prospects... I simply just got tired... then my Lola got sick after a month - possibly cancer but since doctors could no longer perform any operation due to her age and diabetes, no official diagnoses could be given. I had to go home to help - to take care of my Lola and serve her for the last time. Last time because she did not survive... After everything got settled I got back here and got my second job which is on graveyard shift. My Mom got sick with breast cancer and since I was the only left here (my sisters were not in the country) I had to deal with it and took care of my Mom. Being in the graveyard shift was convenient.... Now I had quit from that night-shift job.. no greener pastures lined up yet.. no contingency plan... another career suicide I know...but I decided to have myself checked right after quitting.. I figured I now have the time to follow through it..... Lo and behold! I found out that I have a Polycystic Ovary, a Non-alcoholic Fatty Liver and Diabetes... I HAVE NO JOB AND I AM SICK... what bad luck right?...I agree... but if I hadn't decided to quit my job I wouldn't think of having myself checked since I did not feel anything that would lead me to believe that I was sick. I would still have been ignorant and my health would have gotten compromised more...
During the past big trials God has provided and now He is still providing me with the means to fix my health... He has given me family and friends that stick with me through thick and thin... I learned a lot because of the things that happened and I am still learning because of the things that are happening to me right now... Can you see why I am still thankful?... Well, even if you don't, what matters is that I do. God's humor, God's kindness and God's love.. He really knows how to do things at the right time.. Specially these Blessings in Disguise. :)

ThE OX in the YeAr 2012 WaTeR DrAgOn!

Best Compatible Animal Signs – Rat
Compatible Animal Signs – Ox, Rooster and Snake
Conflict Animal Sign – Goat

The basic character of a person born in the year of the Ox is that he/she is very honest, trustworthy, hard working; has a strong sense of integrity and strong willed. This person is a very good worker as well as one who depends on his/her own strength and capability to earn success and recognition.

This is a year of vibrancy and opportunities if you can stay calm and focused without being overwhelmed by the greed of success. Stay in low profile, talk lesser and listen/observe more, so that you will not get yourself caught in the political whirlpool.

Health is not optimal this year, beware illness that will fall upon you, thus seek early treatments before it becomes too serious to handle. Control your diet and have enough sleep, avoid excessive drinking.

Sturdy, earthy, no-nonsense – that’s the Ox.

Affectionate and easy-going, the Ox can show a fierce temper when agitated.

Family life and a loving partner are high on the Ox’s priorities. A wonderful loyal friend.

Forecast for 2011 The Ox will have grown quite a bit during 2010. Its whirlwind moments and sudden challenges meant the Ox had to adjust his thinking and change direction on a dime! Some may feel a bit low about the way things went and it’s important to look forward to 2011 and put 2010 firmly behind them. The Chinese Year of the Rabbit will be encouraging for the Ox. For those who wish to change their career or at least change the direction of it, February, March and September will bring exciting offers and progress. Romance is highlighted in a very special way this year, with unattached Oxen finding themselves in exactly the right place at the right time to meet someone very special. For those in a relationship, this will strengthen and grow. June, July and October are wonderful months for love and romance. Friendship will be important during 2011. Whether the Ox is looking for new friends or drawing on friendships he already has, it’s important that he stays socially active. March, August and December will be particularly busy socially. The Ox should take time to ensure his diet is healthy and that he is taking time to exercise and spend time outdoors. Rest and relaxation will be vital for all Oxen during the Year of the Rabbit.

This should have been posted last September 26, 2010... sorry it's late... but just wanted to say that it has been a very colorful number 3... and hopefully it will become more colorful w/ each passing day.. so now.. working on getting to number 4..


friends should not need any reason to just drop by anytime...
friends should not only just be remembered when you failed at something..
friends should not only be remembered when you just had your heart broken..
nor should they be only remembered when you feel lonely..
because the point is... friends should always be remembered.. good times and bad..
and NOT only when it is convenient..
