​The Purpose of Life


For whom do you live? What’s your life’s purpose? For whom do you wake up everyday? 

We all wake up every day to continue what we have done yesterday; continue the tasks we’ve left at our workplace, continue with yesterday’s lessons at school, etc. But, there’s a common denominator for all that we do – we wake up to continue living, to continue our lives. Whether yesterday was a failure or a success, we need to continue living. Not just for ourselves but also for our family – our kids, husband and wife, mom and dad.

So if ever you’re having a difficult time right now, just think that some of the best days of your life has not happened yet. Keep in mind that you can get through whatever challenges you’re facing right now. Remember, that every problem has a solution. If it doesn’t have a solution, then it’s not a problem, but rather, a truth that needs to be accepted. Think of the moments and the people who made you smile.  Don’t live to please other people. Do what makes you happy and be with those who you make you smile. Don’t forget to pray because God will always make a way. 🙂

 
Live your life …  on purpose.
 
 

Earthquake Safety Tips


Recently, the Philippines was struck by a magnitude 6 earthquake particularly in some parts of Mindanao. The strong earthquake damaged several structures, including a portion of the national highway.

It was felt at Intensity 7 – classified as destructive – in Wao and Kalilangan, Bukidnon; and Intensity 4 (moderately strong) in Cagayan de Oro City; Cotabato City; Gingoog City, Misamis Oriental; Matalam, North Cotabato and Davao City.

The tremor was also felt at Intensity 3 in Kabacan, North Cotabato; Maramag, Quezon, Don Carlos, Bukidnon; Lebak, Sultan Kudarat; Intensity 2 in Kidapawan City, Koronadal City; and Intensity 1 in Camiguin, Misamis Oriental.

What to do when there’s an earthquake?

  1. DROP down onto your hands and knees before the earthquake would knock you down.
  2. COVER your head and neck (and your entire body if possible) under the shelter of a sturdy table or desk.
  3. HOLD ON to your shelter (or to your head and neck) until the shaking stops.

If you are outdoors during an earthquake:

  1. Stay there.
  2. Move away from buildings, streetlights, and utility wires.
  3. Once in the open, stay there until the shaking stops. The greatest danger exists directly outside buildings, at exits and alongside exterior walls.

What will you do before and after an earthquake?

Make sure you have a fire extinguisher, first aid kit, a battery-powered radio, a flashlight, and extra batteries at home. Here’s a list of essential products you need. Learn how to turn off the gas, water, and electricity. Make up a plan of where to meet your family after an earthquake. Don’t leave heavy objects on shelves (they’ll fall during a quake).

The Philippines is located along a typhoon belt and the so-called Ring of Fire, a vast Pacific Ocean region where about 90 percent of the world’s earthquakes and 81 percent of the world’s largest earthquakes occur.
