As You Go Through Life

In life, we never know our fate... we don't know exactly what will happen for our future. Some are very lucky. And some are still waiting for their luck. There are lots of trials we encountered in our journey of life. Trials that sometimes we want to give up or even we ought to end our life because of unreasonable situation. We don't know on how if we can overcome these trials because all in our minds are NEGATIVE - it doesn't help us to face the reality.

Life is like a game. If you know the game and you know how to use your strategy surely you will be the winner! If not, sad to say but you are the loser.

Life is like a fruit tree. It is seasonal. Sometimes it is full of leaves and fruits and sometimes, not.

Life is full of challenges. It is up to you on how to handle the situation and how to face the consequences. Be brave in facing any challenges in life. God will give us challenges because HE knows we can make it.

Don't get tired in facing challenges in life because it will help us to be a better person and stronger individual. Just don't forget to call Him if you really needed Him. He is just in our side guiding us. Maybe we forgot Him that is why He gives us these challenges because He wants us to be near by Him.

Always bear in mind that there is always tomorrow… Just have FAITH!
-Marco Paolo-


[Note: I just want to share this to you guys... ]

As You Go Through Life ...

1. Set your own pace........When someone is pushing you, it's ok to tell them they're pushing.
2. Take nothing for granted........Watch water flow, the corn grow, the leaves blow, your neighbors mow.
3. Allow yourself time to be lazy and unproductive........Rest isn't a luxury, it's a necessity.
4. Listen to the wind blow........It carries a message of yesterday and tomorrow........And now.........Now counts.
5. Rest on your laurels........They bring comfort whatever their size, age or condition.
6. Talk slower. Talk less. Don't talk. Communication isn't measured by words.
7. Give yourself permission to be late sometimes........Life is for living, not scheduling.
8. Listen to the song of a bird........The complete song. Music and nature are gifts, but only if you are willing to receive them.
9. Slow down. God is still in heaven........You are not responsible for doing it all...yourself... right now.
10. Remember a happy, peaceful time in your past........Rest there. Each moment has a richness that takes a lifetime to savor.
11. Quit planning how you're going to use what you know, learn or possess........God's gifts just are. Be grateful and their purpose will be clear.
12. When you walk with someone, don't think about what you'll say next........Thoughts will spring up naturally if you let them.
13. Talk and play with children........It will bring out the unhurried little person inside you.
14. Create a place in your home...At your work....in your heart...where you can go for quiet and recollection. You deserve it.
15. Take time to think........Action is good and necessary, but it's fruitful only if we muse, ponder and mull.
16. Make time for play........The things you like to do. Whatever your age, your inner child needs re-creation.
17. Watch and listen to the night sky........It speaks.
18. Listen to the words you speak........Especially in prayer.
19. Learn to stand back and let others take their turn as leaders........ There will always be new opportunities for you to step out in front again.
20. Divide big jobs into little jobs........If God took six days to create the universe, can you do any better?
21. Direct your life with purposeful choices, not with speed and efficiency........The best musician is one who plays with expression and meaning, not the one who finishes first.
22. Take a day off alone........Make a retreat. You can learn from monks and hermits without becoming one.
23. Pet a furry friend........You will give and get the gift of now.
24. Work with your hands........It frees the mind.
25. Take time to wonder........Without wonder, life is merely an existence.
26. Sit in the dark........It will treat you to see and hear, taste and smell.
27. Once in awhile........Turn down the lights, The throttle, The invitations. Less really can be more.
28. Let go......Nothing is usually the hardest thing to do...but often it is the best.
29. Taste your food........God gave it to delight as well as nourish.
30. Notice the sun and the moon as they rise and set........They are remarkable for their steady pattern of movement, not their speed.
31. And as you ramble on thru life my dearest friend........Keep your eye upon the doughnut, and not upon the hole.


For our blogmate Yanah:

Prayers for sis Yanah... whatever problems come in your way... You just have to trust Him I know everything will be fine. Just hold on and pray!


  1. Salamat sa pagkuha nito parekoy...

    God Bless

  2. TO:

    LORD CM:
    Walang anuman parekoy... basta para sa mga blogero't blogera... makikiisa tayo... :)

  3. Sa intro nitong post mo, Mark, napakahusay ng advice. Pakiramdam ko ay dumaan ka na rin sa napakaraming unos sa iyong buhay! Saan mo hinuhugot ang mga ito? Sa totoo lang, hindi ko kayang makapag-ipon ng mga ganitong isusulat.

    Sorry, ayun pala sa labels- from email.

    Hahaha! 'yong number (3) ginagawa ko talaga 'yan immediately after ng oras ng trabaho. Natutulog ako ng dalawang oras talaga. (Kung nabasa mo sa Ang mga Lihim... kasi ang bigat ng work ko, masakit sa katawan!)

    Sa number (3) konektado rin ang number (24). Whew, ganu'n ba 'yon?! Puro kalyo na nga ang kamay ko (sa kakablog, hahaha, HINDI,) sa kaka-work with my hands dito sa manukan. U

    Nakakatawa naman ang number (7)! Hahaha! Nangyayari ito sa schedule ko nagpo-post sa blog. Sa bagay, libangan naman ang blogging, kaya ayos nga lang 'pag hindi masunod ang schedule. o",)

    Ang nasa number (9) at number (18) ay bagay na bagay sa larawan at tag na ginawa ni Lord CM, na kinuha naman ng karamihan sa mga blogero, tulad mo.

    Let us do our best (or our part), and God will do the rest. o",)

    Ang number (28) ba 'yon ang iba/tunay na kahulugan ng sinabi ni Yanah, "ang mabigat na bagay ay gumagaan kapag binitawan..."?

    Ayan, huwag daw tumingin sa butas, Mark! Dapat ay sa doughnut lang. Hahaha! o",)

    Kagigising ko lang, actually galing dun sa 2hrs rest na sinasabi ko. Natawa at na-inspire ako talaga rito sa post mo.

  4. aw. yup. no problem is BIG if you have HIM with you..

    ang ganda ng mga advices.. ill surely do one of these if i needed too.

    wee.. bili ka nalang uli ng chocnut! lols.

  5. Allow yourself time to be lazy and unproductive........Rest isn't a luxury, it's a necessity.

    ---I think I need this. I just donno how long I should stay in this mode because I think I have been lazy for quite some time.....

    thanks for the tips, very practical and realistic....

  6. there's a lot of wisdom in this post~~~~

  7. TO:

    Hi Doc! When I speak it is really coming from my the bottom of my heart… medyo napagdaanan ko rin ang mga unos sa buhay pero iba’t ibang case nga lang ang mapagdadaanan natin…

    Lahat yata na nakasulat “as you through life” ay connected sa buhay ng bawat tao. Tulad na lang nito:

    Slow down. God is still in heaven........You are not responsible for doing it all...yourself... right now.

    Hahaha… natawa ako sa doughnut… anyway, Salamat Doc sa comments at sa pagbisita mo sa tahanan ko… ingat ingat 

    Hmmm… yup… all of that messages ay connected sa ating buhay….

    Life is all about battle...
    kung hindi ka lalaban, walang mangayayari sa Buhay mo...

    I am a flower quickly fading,
    Here today and gone tomorrow,
    A wave tossed in the ocean,
    A vapor in the wind
    Still you hear me when I'm calling,
    Lord, you catch me when I'm falling,
    And you've told me who I am.
    I am yours.
    I am yours.

  23. TO:

    You'll be fine dhi...

  24. Nice... worth pondering!!! But my attention was caught with these two...take time to wonder and sit in the dark. I suppose they compliment each other.

    May be in our life there things we wanted to have but they are not destined for us, but in wondering it may give us the possibility to be closer to our wish... and to make us back into our senses... darkness will appear to realize that only at night we can see the stars...

    Go forth!!!

  25. TO:

    I agree with you. Darkness will appear to realize that only at night we can see the stars... And there's always tomorrow to face a new beginning and a new life..

  26. Haaaayy. Sabi ko na dami kong na miss dito eh...

    Very nice. I agree with you and MOTS. Sometimes it's in the dark where we see more clearly. Things we often take for granted. Simple things with grand manifestations of what real life is about...

    Tc.... :)

  27. TO:


    Oy! oy! Nagbalik ka na... :) thanks dre for visiting always sa tahanan ko...
