PDJ Part 2, Chapter 4

Hmmm let's see... I started again last Wednesday, but I've been busy with work so a few days went by without me reading the book. I got to read again over the weekend though, so I'm posting all the answers now because I'm not allowed to use the computer in the office that much anymore so I do my blogging in a netcafe. Hmmm need to edit, the keyboard in this netcafe is kinda wonky. On to Day 4...

"Chapter Four: Since I was made to last forever, what is the one thing I should stop doing and the one thing I should start doing today?"

I shold stop thinking nobody cares about me. I am surprised when a friend chose to hang out with me to help me. I thank God for friends like them. I should start making myself better and happier. And stop regretting on past mistakes. And stop being angry to the people who hurt me.

PDJ Part 2, Chapter 3

I read my past Day 3 answer and laughed. I still want to have more money, but not to be able to shop like Imelda or Gretchen Barreto, only to be able to pay off debts, bills and a few stuff to own; like a house, and a car for my family. So no, I think I'm still the same as far as my attitude with money goes. Oh, ad for update: I bought my digicam. But you probably already know that ;)

"Chapter Three: What would my family and friends say is the driving force of my life? What do I want it to be?"

I want to be successful. I want to be better as a person, as an artist, as a friend, as a woman. And I wish I cold handle human relationships better. I just get so focused on one thing at a time that I tend to isolate myself without knowing it. I just want to be happy. How do I achieve it? So far I get happy when I make others happy. If I could choose my driving force I hope it would be making things work out for the best.

PDJ part 2, Chapter 2

I read my answers for Day 2 before. I wonder if I had too much sugar at the time I answered those questions @_@

"Chapter Two: Knowing that God uniquely created me, what areas of my personality, background, and physical appearance am I struggling to accept? "

Personality: I love too much. I hate how I end up getting hurt too much because of it. I know I am positively crazy for feeling that however much the people I care about have hurt me, I still wish for a resolution. I can only pray for them now.

Background: Sure, I wish I'm one of those people who are born into powerful/wealthy/both families and have a kick-ass background to rival paris Hilton and Celine Lpez(haha) but I'm happy with my family and I love them :)

Physical appearance: My teeth. I'm getting braces as soon as I can afford them. Yes, I know I'm already 27 going on 28. Also, my weight. I lost too much weight again. I hope things in my life get better so I can be happier and eat more. Or at least stable. It's just... crazy lately. Too many unanswered questions. But I do my best not to let it affect me negatively.

Knowing that God created me this way and realizing I have to accept it, it's all peachy-keen with me. I know nothing's an accident. I know good things and bad things happen for a reason. I only hope it all works out for the best, for myself and the people who care.

Purpose Driven Jac 1, again

I know I already started on this book years ago, but somehow lost track. It took me some serious shaking up in my life again before I found myself holding the book again. I searched for my old answers to compare with my answers today until I go beyond the days I already did the book.

As for Day 1, my answer is still the same, though I admit I forgot this the whole time... until now.

"Chapter One: In spite of all the advertising around me, how can I remind myself that life is really about living for God, not myself?

I'd say mainly by holding on to the understanding that our relationship with God is like a child to its parent. i got this insight from my former Architecture classmate John John Ong, and i'll always be grateful for that because only then did everything make sense. Why we're created. Why He let all those things happen. It's because He wante to create something to love, and maybe be loved back. He will always hope for the best for each and every one of us like any parent would for their child. And the child, however successful and happy one seems to be, the joy is only multiplied when shared with the ones they love and loves them. And God is the One who we can always be sure who loves us. So it's much easier to find joy when we share our successes with the ones we love and love us. God is One of them. We can even thank Him for those successes ;)"
