How Do You Face Personal Adversity in Life?

          Amidst the challenging times that we are facing nowadays (I mean it is a universal thing presently that mankind is facing such a tested phase with all these negative situations like inflations, low wages, high cost of living, poverty, housing crisis, conflicts and war in places etc. it is but natural for us to panic and be uneasy in the midst of all these hindrances. 

          And how about you, how do you engage and immerse yourself in the middle of this chaotic situation? Personally I would say that there are elements that we should all possess so that we can overcome this test. And these are the spirit of being resilient, extending our support system and self care.

          First, resilience will allow us to bounce back from adversities. No matter how difficult the situation is, we should stay calm and never to allow our emotions to take over our heart and head. If we are able to do it, our self confidence will be boosted. In addition, this is essential for us to be able to maintain our mental health. Here in Australia, heaps of cases of people with depression exist since it goes by with the difficult times that we have now.  Of course, I know of some people also who were strong enough to get up in the experience of depression. At the end of the day, it boils down on how a person behave in the face of a difficult situation. 

          Second, extending our support system is very crucial for I constantly believe that we are born to help each other. No one among us could ever survive in such a complicated world just by him alone. We should always acknowledge the presence of others especially those significant people in our life. It is always a give and take situation. Can you feel the security when you think that you are not alone in this life journey? Thus it is beneficial to establish and strengthen our relationships with others. 

          Finally, overcoming today's situation can also be made possible by taking care of ourselves. Self care is very important for it is said that we can only be able to help others if initially, we are healed and in contact of our own reality and dynamics. We will only be capable of extending love to others if on the first place, we are convinced that we are also loved by others. Remember always, learn to go easy with yourself then everything will be on its proper place.

My Son's First Day in High School

          Yesterday marked another milestone for me and my son since he started his first day in High School on that day. Me and my wife were both excited and nervous as well since it was his first time to ride the public transport by himself. What made us a little bit relax though was by reminding our son to make sure that everything is prepared the night before. This included his school supplies, bag, and uniforms. 

          Knowing that it will be his first time to ride the bus by himself, we tried to orient him where then is the route of the bus and also its point of stop. Thus the day of reckoning came in yesterday as he had his first day in school. We were excited waiting for him in the afternoon. And when he came in, we eagerly asked him how then was the day for him.

          As parents, we were also monitoring the school's update through their website and indeed, we were so elated to read those news coming from the school's staff especially from the principal letting us know the developments/ updates for all students' first day in school. At the end of the day, I was telling myself that I need to give patience for my son in his period of transition.
