Better than Bitter

Posted by Lawrence Corpuz on Thursday, April 28, 2011, In : All About Life 


Many people are afraid of getting involved again after the collapse of a relationship. Some people would call them embittered, but beneath bitterness is fear. We have been hurt. We are afraid of being hurt again so we stop trusting men, or women.

I don't want to be one of those persons. This is not to say that I don't have my own fears. I do. Sometimes my fears are so huge they feel as if they will engulf me. But I'm willing to sit quietly in the center of those fears until they become some...

Read and ponder ....

Posted by Lawrence Corpuz on Wednesday, April 13, 2011, In : All About Life 


When we find someone whose uniqueness is in line with our's ...

we join him and fall into a similar oddity 

called LOVE ...

There are things that do not want us to disconnect,

People who do not want us to leave ...

But remember ... that's not the end of the world ..

but the beginning of a

new life ..

 

Happiness is for those who cry,

those who hurt,

those who have been looking ...

those who have been wanting..

and those who have tried ..

Because they can appreciate

how importan...

Are You Being Too Hard on Yourself?

Posted by Lawrence Corpuz on Friday, April 8, 2011, In : All About Life 



Most of us are subject to guilt feelings. We may be spending so much time feeling guilty everyday. Guilt for the most part is very constructive. It's an important civilizing influence that keeps people from hurting, distressing or disappointing others. However, the system that works for good can also malfunction.

 

If your guilt feelings don't lessen after you've tried to make amends, or if you are feeling guilty for things you can't control, you're probably suffering from false guilt, whic...

How could someone with so little be so happy?

Posted by Lawrence Corpuz on Tuesday, April 5, 2011, In : All About Life 



"Thank you, Sir. Praise the Lord!" the old beggar exclaimed in clear English as I shove a five-peso coin into his hand. I was on my way to meet a friend at a restaurant near Raja Solaiman Park one rainy October day when I chance upon the kindly old man, charming passers-by for alms with his tooth-less smile and sunny disposition.

Minutes later, as I sat comfortably in the restaurant with my friend, the memory of the old man lingered in my mind. After our meal, we go to the spot where I left...

A Tell Tale Story

Posted by Lawrence Corpuz on Friday, April 1, 2011, In : All About Life 

"True!–nervous–very, very dreadfully nervous I had been and am; but why will you say that I am mad? The disease had sharpened my senses–not destroyed–not dulled them. Above all was the sense of hearing acute. I heard all things in the heavens and in the earth. I heard many things in hell. How, then, am I mad?"

"…Now this is the point. You fancy me mad. Madmen know nothing. But you should have seen me. You should have seen how wisely I proceeded–with what caution–with what fores...

It's the Making of Resolutions that Counts

Posted by Lawrence Corpuz on Tuesday, March 29, 2011, In : All About Life 



A friend recently told me that he saw the picture I've posted on my facebook. Its about my New Year's resolution to quit on my smoking habit.At first, I've tried to keep that resolution. Every year, I produce a sadly familiar repertoire of aspirations dealing with that bad habit. I always mean well, but it's clear that I lack firmness of purpose.Well, to my mind, thats the essence of New Year's Resolution. It's a wet sponge, slurping up the black marks of the past, leaving a clean slate for t...

Rising Spirit

Posted by Lawrence Corpuz on Monday, March 28, 2011, In : All About Life 


 
The rhythm of my hand goes well with the drops of ink and with words floating in my brain. I do not have highfaluting words to speak of, instead, the way of my emotions and the labyrinth that my soul’s going through are the ones obliging me to put the significance of other’s life into scriptures. But, ironically, I do not find my life as important as others do consider it. The poetry of contrast the world has offered me evoked my sensations to be involved in its abyss. In there I grew, l...

Tips From A Successful Slacker

Posted by Lawrence Corpuz on Monday, March 28, 2011, In : All About Life 


Need to look busier? Make sure your office appears swamped at all times. Your desk should always look like you're in the midst of some incredibly time-sensitive project. This way you can safely maximize the time you spend checking your facebook. 
For added protection, make sure the papers on your desk are arranged in stacks. A calculator, a few stray apples and a strategically placed pair of eyeglasses will round out the organized chaos effect.
Finally, some work on your computer screen that yo...

Its a Game...

Posted by Lawrence Corpuz on Monday, March 28, 2011, In : All About Life 

 
Win-win. 
Win-lose.
Lose-lose. 
We all hear that terms not just on games we play but also on our every day play of the game called LIFE.
What does it mean, one may ask. Well, if I’m the one to answer, it refer to the possible outcomes of a game or dispute involving two sides, and more importantly, how each side perceives their outcome relative to their standing before the game. 
For example, a “win” results when the outcome of a negotiation is better than expected, a “loss” when the out...

Flying with a Broken Wings

Posted by Lawrence Corpuz on Wednesday, March 23, 2011, In : All About Life 


How many times have I tried to scape
but until now I’m still a captive.
Behind the bars of your selfish love
trying desperately finding a way out.
Who could save me in this terrible plight?
Hold my hand and take away all the pain?
Open this cage where I’m in,
and show me the way where to begin?
Like a bird who just earn its freedom,
I shall fly towards the sky....
Even with a broken wings.

Who I Wanna Be?

Posted by Lawrence Corpuz on Tuesday, March 22, 2011, In : All About Life 
I'd rather be a little boy with his head on the clouds,
doin' nothing but day dreaming of love.
Instead of the guy who sees the dark before the light,
the one who thinks he has everything under control...
when everything just reachin' the breaking point...

This is Me

Posted by Lawrence Corpuz on Tuesday, March 22, 2011, In : All About Life 
The face of the dawn seems too far away,
For I can't wait to start my day.
New beginning, new stories unfold...
Creating yet another memory to hold.

This is me, yes, I am me...
I'm not a mystery....
Just living my life,
of who I want to be.

RE-BALANCING YOUR LIFE

Posted by Lawrence Corpuz on Monday, March 21, 2011, In : All About Life 



'How's your day?' a question that on my bad days makes me grouse and rant a reply. But after that, I would vow silently for the umpteenth time, never to lose perspective again.

For many of us, work lays claim to our time and emotion, possessing us completely as any spouse or child. But those of us who think we have hard jobs can learn a lot from those who really do.

I wonder how some people manage to counsel rape victims, investigate murder scenes or a rescue victims on the aftermath of a disas...
