MY EXPERIENCE ABOUT FEBRILE CONVULSION

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedintumblr

My eldest son was 8-month old when he suddenly passed out in my arms. I was so shocked that I couldn’t explain my feeling. My whole body was shaking and my mind cannot function well. I don’t know what to do.  I am hopeless. I was crying and shouting for help, I thought he was dead. He lost his consciousness although his eyes remained open. His skin turned blue.

His seizure ended after 5 minutes but that 5 minutes was a nightmare. It was a terrible feeling I couldn’t explain, a worst feeling a mother could ever feel most especially if you are a first time mom.

Due to panic, my husband brought my son to the nearest hospital barefooted. He also didn’t wear any t-shirt. Situation like this will paralyze your entire mind and body. You cannot think straight, I can’t think of a better solution. I can’t calm myself because I’m terribly shaking.

Prayer of a Forsaken Child

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedintumblr

I wrote this prayer just after Typhoon Yolanda. It was a super typhoon landed in the Philippines that stole a thousand lives. It was probably the most destructive typhoon ever landed in the region.

It happened years ago but it always remind me of that tragic night. It taught me lessons of empathy and gratefulness. Life is short to waste on things that don’t matter. It taught me to live my life to the fullest.

“When you love, it is not you to be understood but you to understand; not for you to take but for you to be taken; to listen not to dictate; to sacrifice and not to demand; not to count or measure but to LOVE

1.Heaven and earth relationship

“Horizon is where heaven and earth meet: A love story that crossed boundaries.” – Diana Williams

This is a relationship that is bound by age and status in life. Relationships like these had so many complications, – from oppositions to denials to criticisms to judgments from families, friends and love ones.

Example is the “Cinderella love story”.  Although Cinderella is a fairy tale story, it has still the connotation that heaven and earth can collide. It gives hope to the loveless.

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedintumblr

There are tests of life we have to endure. Everyday we are confronted with setbacks and trials that leave us unguarded. But Life is Good Despite Surging storms, Shaking Ground and Trials. God will win our fights.

 

1. The Test of Life and Death

What if one day, you will face difficult situation that test your ability to decide from two major decisions? Let say, your wife is about to give birth to your first baby, you have waited for so long, prayed and cried a lot, went to a series of fertilization just to conceive. And God answered your prayer.

But the big problem is, your wife had complications, you have to choose who to save, the baby whom you have waited or your wife whom you dearly love. You cannot choose both or you will lose them both.

The Power of the Tongue

Your Tongue is Powerful! So…

Before you speak:

T.H.I.N.K

T – Is it TRUE?

H – Is it HELPFUL?

I – Is it INSPIRING?

N – Is it NECESSARY?

K – Is it KIND?

Our tongue is the most powerful force created to mankind. It has the ability to build and destroy; it can inspire or tear down, it can make or break a relationship.

Words can be deadly if use in a wrong way.  I have read the news lately regarding this guy stabbing his friend to death due to misunderstanding. A simple conversation that lead to an argument.

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedintumblr

As a Mom, You want the best for your kids. You want them to see that you model success. Here are the top 10 rules of Success to consider.

5 years ago, my Life was a total mess. I have no goals, no clear direction, no vision boards and no dream whatsoever. I was just living my life just like any other. I don’t know where my life is heading. I have no guts to discover new things because I am afraid of failing.

Every day is just another ordinary day – waking up, go to work, go home late at night, sleep. It was a simple life, no complications, but It was boring.

Then one day I realized, comfort zone will never bring me to the peak of the mountain. I have to take difficult roads to achieve greatness. And that starts my love for business and inspirational books. Then changed my daily routine, I read inspirational books or watch motivational YouTube channels that inspired me a lot like Evan Carmichael, Terri Savelle Foy, Joel OsteenValuetainment and many more. They are my hero. They opened my eyes to the real essence of life. I’ve learned that success is hard but it’s not impossible.

Note: We are not perfect, I struggle with some of the rules below but minimizing my bad habits is a good way to start.

Leaders Must Haves – How to Lead Effectively

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedintumblr

If you want to be an effective leader, learn to be a servant first.

Learn to humble yourself. Humility is not thinking less of yourself; It is thinking of yourself less – C.S. Lewis.

It is one of the greatest assets a leader must have, it is more important than power and fame.  Your humility will stand up after your fame and power has gone.

Humble leaders magnetize all the grace of God, They are leaders the world needs.

Simon Sinek – a motivational speaker and the author of the best-selling book, Start with Why, shared a great story:

There was a former undersecretary of defense who was invited to speak in a large conference about a thousand of people.  He was standing in the stage with this cup of coffee in Styrofoam cup. After he sipped, he said, Last year I spoke in these exact the same conference, I was still the undersecretary of defense. When I spoke here last year they flew me here business class. When I arrived at the airport somebody is waiting for me to take me in my hotel room.

The next morning, I came downstairs and there’s someone waiting in the lobby to greet me and drove me into this exact the same venue. They took me into a green room where they handed me a cup of coffee in a beautiful ceramic cup.

Now, I am no longer the undersecretary.  I flew here coach. I took a taxi into my hotel. When I came down to the lobby this morning, I took another taxi into this venue. I came in front door and found my way backstage. And when I ask someone “Do you have any coffee?” He pointed to the coffee machine at the corner and I poured myself a cup of coffee into this Styrofoam cup. He said, “The cup is never meant for me, it is meant for the position I held. I deserve a Styrofoam cup.”

As you gain fame and fortune, as you gain position and authority people will treat you better. They will hold doors open for you. They will get you a cup of coffee without you even ask. They will call you Sir and Ma’am and they will give you stuff. None of that stuff is meant for you, it is meant for the position you hold. You deserve a Styrofoam cup. Always remember this lesson of HUMILITY.
