Five Things I’ve Learned From My Manager:

  1. Take vacations. You don’t have to feel guilty for not reporting to work nor for leaving your teammates for a day or two.
  2. Take breaks. You can’t actually work for eight hours straight, take a break away from your computer from time to time.
  3. Save your energy. Save your energy for the more important things and stop stressing over something that you have no control over.
  4. Focus on quality. You don’t have to get everything done in a day. Focus on what you’re currently working on and make sure that the quality is good to go regardless if there will be someone available to review it or not.
  5. Give yourself credit. Don’t waste your time overthinking if you’ve disappointed someone or if you’ve done something wrong. Most of the time, you’re doing your best. Don’t be too hard on yourself.

I just feel like writing these down for future reference because they are not only relevant in terms of work, but it also applies to real life situations and instances.

What’s For Halloween #1

Halloween is one of the most looked-forward-to celebrations towards the end of the year because it’s that one time of the year when people get to show off their creativity by dressing up, decorating their homes, etc. And since Halloween is lurking around the corner, I bet everyone’s already busy and excited preparing for those Halloween parties and trick-or-treating!

But some people just aren’t into all that stuff; like those who enjoy spending these holidays by reading books. So if you’re one of those people but you still want to get into that “Halloween spirit,” then you’ve come to the right place.

In this post, I’ll be sharing some of the books (that I’ve read and/or want to read) and articles that will totally creep you out. Continue reading

5 Things

  • Learn to forgive those who hurt you. Easier said than done, I know. It may be hard not to hate the person who’ve caused you a very deep cut but you will never be free from something unless you accept the situation and forgive the people who caused it. Don’t stress over the things you can’t change.
  • You can’t please everyone. Not everyone will like you, there will always be people who will say something about you no matter how much you try to please them so just be yourself and do what you do. As long as you’re not doing anything bad, keep going.
  • Try to understand others before you judge them. Stop judging people for the things they do for you do not know what they’re going through. Put yourself in their shoes first.
  • Accept your mistakes. Always accept your mistakes and apologize for the damage you’ve done.
  • You won’t get everything you want. It is not because you do not deserve it but because you deserve something else, something better for you. You just have to fully accept that not everything you want is good for you.

  4. Never yell at each other unless the house is on fire.

  6. Never bring up past mistakes when in an argument, it will only worsen the situation.

I’ve attended a wedding today and the bride’s father included this on his speech. It really actually made sense even if he made a joke about some of it.
