Nurturing Your Child’s Gift

Nurturing Your Child’s Gift

Were there times you were amazed that your child can do things that you can’t? Even how many times you think to yourself… how they did that?… even you yourself can’t answer it. Then, probably… that’s your child’s natural gift!

I believe every child is born unique. They have their inborn talents, and special skills acquired through training. How lucky are those with inborn talents but it would be nothing if it will not be nurtured. As parents, we should be the first to know if they have it. A natural gift is not only having a high IQ like some genius but could be anything like writing poems, composing lyrics and songs, dancing. singing etc.. as in anything that your child can uniquely do at his best. And to nurture it, does not really involve spending too much money. While some can enroll their child in special talents classes, how about those parents who can’t afford those? Below are some suggestions.


1. Let your child enjoy doing what they love.

Just let them be! If they need to be messy. then go… if they want to talk, sing, dance in front of a mirror, don’t hold them back, instead support them. But make them understand your set limits so he can still enjoy his craft, and at the same time still following your rules.

2. Give them materials.

Te enjoy more their craft, give them the necessary materials they need. It does not need to be expensive, or sometimes, us parents need to be creative like making some DIYs so you don’t need to buy anymore. Like in my case, my daughter likes to write poems so she uses unused pages of old notebooks, then just designing it so it would look nice.

3. Don’t forget to praise them.

When they show you their work or talent, never ever forget to praise them. It lets them feel that you truly love what they do and you are proud of them. It gives them more motivation and confidence to continue developing themselves and doing what they love.

So that’s all for now. All I can say is just always love your children and support them in everything they do. Then, just to share some of my daughter’s own written poems, feel free to read below. You can also visit her blog @worldofmybestest, but I think she’s still experimenting on it so it might not be working yet. For now, enjoy reading her poems below.

Freelancing: To Be or Not to Be

Freelancing: To Be or Not to Be

Been looking and searching here and there to get the most fitted online job I could possibly have. I was a candidate for a single or two but after discussion and communication with the client, it seems to be a scam (but I’m not sure as well). There is one who needs to access my FB account, another requires me to enter my credit card details in a Bing Ads account. Feeling unsafe, I’ve withdrawn my proposals. Well, I guess that’s one lesson in the world of freelancing… one has to be wise in choosing the work/client.

thinking
Is freelancing for me?

But I am not losing hope, I had an offer which is an ongoing job depending if there is a work to do so the income is like for part-time only, not enough to provide a family. So, this leads me to think, if I should really do this. I know there are many successful freelancers out there but, of course, not everybody has the same luck as theirs, and maybe I’m one of them, hahaha! But seriously, with less than a month of freelancing, I believe there is more, just need to be PATIENT. To all newbies like me, just keep on submitting proposals, and it will come.

HAPPY FREELANCING!

4》A Caring Mother-Like Rooster

4》A Caring Mother-Like Rooster

Hello, it’s been a while! I would like to share what I have witnessed just the other day that really touched the soft spot of my heart. 😍

Below is a picture of 4 orphaned chicks. Their mommy hen passed away due to some disease which affects the majority of their kind. I really pity them because they are just 2 or 3 days old… so young without a mom. I was thinking how would they survive without their mom beside them. Like humans, they need her care, her warmth, her guidance and support. Who will teach them how to look for their food? So I just watched them and they are all cheeping, probably calling on their mommy. They walk all over and do not leave each other… always in one group. I hope some hen will adopt them.

Four Orphaned Chicks

As they walk and walk, they met another hen but she did not mind them and kept on avoiding the 4 chicks. Then, they met another, a rooster being groomed for cockfighting. I was really amazed because he did not peck on the chicks, instead he just allowed them to stay in his area. Then as minutes go by, we just noticed that he was like training the chicks how to get their own food. See the photo below. Truly unbelievable! He is not even the father of these chicks.

3》Oh My Internet!

3》Oh My Internet!

As we all know, internet is now a necessity being it as a means of communication with long distance friends and families. It is also a medium for business promotion and online income generators.  So I guess, almost every household has their own internet connection.

Internet

Having moved into a new place means application for new internet services. Tried requesting transfer of our PLDT Fibr account but unfortunately it is not yet available in our location so they proposed DSL, but then again, there is no secondary line available. They offered Ultera, but on the day of installation, the technician advised via text that they will cancel the installation since our place is out of Smart LTE coverage (thank goodness, I was actually going to backout because of the bad reviews considering it has a 3-yr lock-in period). I was already losing hope since the only internet connection I have is my Globe mobile data, and the signal, though I’m getting an H+ or 4G is quite unstable. So our last resort is Globe, we’ve applied for their Globe at Home plan 1200.

On the day of installation, everybody was excited… the modem was already in place, the router was already on the roof and here comes the speedtest, it’s fast at 5mbps! Yahoo! Then all of a sudden, the technician guy said that they cannot proceed to full installation… but why o why!.. the signal is unstable, it keeps on dropping and it’s out of Globe standards… I really felt disappointed 😦 though everything was already in place, they disconnected all. After a few days, Globe called to re-install for another checking with their field manager, but again, it cannot be! What are we going to do? We need it for business… Then all of a sudden, Globe sales called again promoting their Globe at Home prepaid, they were saying that it is 50% faster than pocket wifi. Being our last hope, we were convinced and purchased the unit. It’s priced at P1,995 and comes with free 10GB data so we instantly used it.

Globe at Home Prepaid Wifi

HOLA! It’s true to what it claims to be! The signal is strong, the speed is fast for both download and upload. It’s like something sent from heaven 😁


Just to be clear, I am not promoting any company or any router for anything. This is only from personal experience.I believe the signal strength is still dependent on your location. And in our case, this is the one. But you know, with its pros also have its cons.

PROS: Ready to use, no installation needed just plug to the outlet. Easy on the budget since its prepaid.

CONS: With data cap dependent on your purchased GOSURF promo. Higher data spends since it’s not unlimited. Needs electrical outlet to work. Not mobile like the pocket wifi but can still be brought around as long as there is a power outlet.

So there you go! Hope I had given light to those whose locations are impossible to reach with internet. This might be the answer to your problem. But before purchasing, make sure to consult first with your Globe contact person so they can check the best options.

Good Luck!

 

Enough With My Drama

Enough With My Drama

So, with my very first blog post, https://liferealitybytes.wordpress.com/2017/07/19/from-corporate-to-provincial-life/, I guess I got some of my friends and families worried, hmmm sorry for that if I did, but just want everyone to know that I am A okay. Last time was just like… spur of the moment, and I’m alright now.

But you know what, some realizations swept over me, MY FRIENDS, ESPECIALLY MY FAMILY does really care for me. I felt loved and cared for. One assured me that my decision was right. Another expressed their readiness to help if I need one. Some offered to visit me and meet up. And another even admired my character as a wife. I felt a pang of guilt that I had them worried for my being so dramatic. Though, one thing’s for sure, communication lines with them had been renewed and made fresh again. Thanks to you guys! Group hug!

Okay, don’t want to be a drama queen anymore, I’ll just stay positive as much as I can and enjoy every minute of the day. With my lots of free time, I’ll sure learn ways to make it productive. Trying to look for online jobs.. and hopefully I will find one, the sooner the better. Thanks to those who liked my first post!

From Corporate to Provincial Life

From Corporate to Provincial Life

Since I graduated from college 19 years ago, I’ve been working and living in a corporate world, exposed to modern life living near malls and other commercial establishments. I’m earning my own money and get to buy the things I want for myself, for my daughter, and of course for my husband. We eat out almost every weekend, may it be fastfood or fine dining. In short, I’m living the life I want it to be. Some few years ago, my husband was already convincing me to relocate in their provincial hometown, which I totally disagreed since I’m not used to live in such place. Moreover, it’s hard to sacrifice the life that was already built in our good old home, and of course my work which was our bread and butter, so as to say. He was saying that life would be better for our family if we will transfer so after almost 4 years, I was convinced. It was a very hard and life changing decision, and honestly, I am not sure if I made the right one. At this very moment, we are already here in our new place, just moved more than a month ago. I am really having a hard time adjusting, the reason I resorted to internet and try this blogging, at least I have some way to share my thoughts. But happy to say that my daughter had fully adjusted with her new school and friends, at least she’s fine. I know that one day will come (I hope soon!) when I will be adjusted as my daughter. I just need to find something I will be busy with, and at the same time will earn money. Though the place is great here with the green lush surroundings and fresh air, still missing my old life. I cannot define yet my purpose here. I felt I made a wrong decision. Did I?
