Make each day a masterpiece!

Is your "next act" (presentation, goal statement for your current project) up to the Cirque du Soleil Standard? Is today a "Masterpiece"?

Got this from Tom Peter's website. Great thought!

Dating, Mating & Waiting (part 3)

What do you do if you're single? A LOT!!!!

Marriage is not the ultimate state of existence.

Single people are not second class members of society!

All of you marriage addicts, shut up while the rest of us throw up!!!

It is possible to idolize marriage even as a married person, you know?!?!

To all you single people out there...on behalf of all married people AND all the Christian books on marriage...MY DEEPEST APOLOGIES!!!!

Aiiight?! Ya feeel me?!

A word to the single and the singled...its not about finding someone who "completes" you ala Jerry MacGuire. It's about finding the right vibe in your life where you can have undivided devotion to Christ.

Sniff...snifff....You had me at, "Hello."

Dating, Mating & Waiting (part 2)

Marriage is not about balance but about harmony. There's a HUGE difference!

Balance means compromise, losing a part of yourself blah, blah, blah....

Harmony requires that both notes be solid and whole. Same with marriage. It's the blending of two lives into one life where neither one has to lose their personal identity.

For harmony to happen, you need to be in the same key. Think WILL of God.

For harmony to happen, you both need to know your notes. Think SELF-AWARENESS and SELF-UNDERSTANDING.

For harmony to happen, you need to know one another. It's like Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson playing off each other because they know one another's habits vocally.

Hey, it's called l'amour NOT la mort. For you non-French speaking people l'amour means love/romance and la mort means death.

Dating, Mating & Waiting (part 1)

Dating sucks. Just a series of monogamous heartache. Why would you want to put yourself out there emotionally, psychologically, spiritually, and financially (?!) for someone you barely know? Stupid!

Alternative: Courtship instead of dating.

Take time to really, REALLY get to know someone. In fact, why not marry your best friend instead? What I mean is, why not instead of looking for a mate, develop awesome friendships...even with the opposite sex! Then go through a process of courtship where you discover whether or not one of your friends is really discguised as your spouse before you create any soul ties or at least before you heavily invest in the person emotionally!

As far as I can see, that's a win-win situation. If you find out that you're not meant for each other, at least you can remain friends for real without the embarrassment of having a "romantic history" with him/her.

O, l'amour!

Dating, Mating, and Waiting

Just finished a 3-part series at NuComm called "Dating, Mating and Waiting." I'll post a summary of each above...

Traffic Cop Lesson

Brought my kids to their ride to school this morning as usual. Got stuck in the middle of the intersection. Reason? Traffic cops!

I thought the whole purpose of a traffic cop is to make traffic flow smoothly?! These guys allowed buses to block the intersection rather than stopping them when the other side was full. Now, I know that this is how it is in Manila. But it's a simple example of a lack of leadership foresight at such a basic level in our society. Something's gotta change!
