Are you a good listener? Or are you all mouth and no ears? Here's a way to test whether you are truly listening. Ask your self these questions.do you interrupt people before they finish what they have to say? Do you change the subject constantly? If you replied yes to both of these questions,then you are not really listening!..... You owe it to the people you care about to give them your utmost attention when they need you. Because you want them to do the same for you, right? Everybody needs to take turns and listen up.And remember, you can only learn when you listen.

did you ever try to count up all the time you spend waiting in lines? There's the line in the cafeteria, the line at the movie ticket booth, the line at the checkout counter at the record store......well, you get the picture. Waiting in the line can get pretty frustrating particularly if you're spending your waiting time thinking about all the things you need to do after you get to the front of the line.So dont think about them. Spend your line time trying one of these.Place your palms together and push them against each other as hard as you can. It will build your muscle.Imagine what all the people in line looked like as babies.You'll laugh your way up the line.Imagine that you are a movie star stopping to pose for the paparazzi. Just keep those smiles and waves imaginary,too. Unless you want people to stare at you!

We all form attachments to objects. Sometimes there's a sentimental value attached to items that makes them worth much more than their actual dollar value. What we're attached to is not the object but the emotion behind it. And nobody can lose or destroy that. And if it's the object itself you are attached to, just imagine breaking or ruining it yourself instead of your friend. WOuld you feel more forgiving? Remember objects can always be replaced. Friendships cant!

It's one thing to stand up for what you believe in........It's another to feel that what you believe in is always right. That kind of rigid thinking blocks your ability to learn and grow as a human being. And when your growth is stunted, you fell stress.
So learn to bend. consider other people's ideas as well as your own. You don't have to give up your belief system. Just acknowledge that there are other opinions out there.And accept that people have different life experiences that enable them to see things differently than you do. WHen a new idea intrigues you, go out and learn about it. Hit the library, or call up a few categories on the internet. If you find something really fascinating, spread the word. Have discussion with your friends.YOu'll be able to learn a lot.

Let's face it.Morning is not exactly the most relaxed time of the day. If you're like most kids, getting ready for school is more like a mad dash thrugh an obstacle course. You have to grab your books, wolf down your breakfast, and get out the door avoiding arguments with your parents and siblings along the way. The best approach to getting through the morning rush is to prepare the night before. Pack up your lunch and put ii in tyhe refrigerator. Leave your backpack by the front door. Lay your clothes before you go to sleep. I always do this before when I was in high school and college. Finally, set your alarm clock for a half hour earlier tahn you normally get up.
You be surprised how much you can get done in the extra half hour. You may even find a few more minutes to practice for your piano lessons before school! (That will give you time in the evening to watch that new show you been dying to check out). when your morning starts out smoothly, the rest of the day is sure to follows! and it's true.
Im a coupon savers.Im looking for a dentist last week and I found a coupon.From where? from the yellow book coupons. I dont realize that there is a coupon at the end of the pages. So, I went to the dentist this afternoon for prophylaxis and also I want the dentist to check my upper jacket I dont know what they called here in U.S but they called it jacket in the Philippines.I use this since high school until now. And I want the dentist if he can pull and clean it inside but he scared if he will do it he brook the false teeth.HE recommend to have and x-ray and he will suggest what is the best thing to do on my jacket. So he suggest to put crowns. When I was in the PHilippines, the dentist always pull it everytime she did general cleaning. Anyway the dentist did a good job for cleaning my teeth and I pay half price for my prophylaxis and x-ray by using the coupon.Hopefully when he does my two crowns he will also give me a half price.Thanks to dorsey dental.

Have you ever had one of those days when you feel like you are the sorriest person in the world? A day when it seems like everyone else has an easy life and yours is the pits? Well believe it or not thats the perfect time to give thanks! when you feel you lowest, that's the time to make a list of all things in your life that you are thankful for. You can list the big things, such as family, friends,your dog and having a roof over your head. But you shouldnalso list the little things that make life worth living, like the fact that your mom makes the most amazing strawberry French toast, taht your dad loves playing one on one basketball with you on Saturdays and that your little sister has ballet class after school so you'll get to listen to your music for a change. Once you see how many wonderful things you have to be grateful for, you'll realize that your life is prtty after all.
My Aunt cooks really good.When she retired she does caterings.And it's a good business in the Philippines specially that Filipino loves to eat.The first thing that I always notice is the table arrangement and of course the food.To give your home buffet a more proffesional look, create the dramatic tiered look of the grand hotel buffet. It is simple to do at home. Simply spread a tablecloth over your table as usual. then place a stack of one or two telephone books, or an overtuneed bowl, or even an empty milk crate, on the table surface. Cover the riser with another samll cloth and use taht surface as the focal point of the buffet. You might place a food platter a still life of fruits and vegetables or a tumbled basket of pretty breads and crackers on the raised surface.TO give your buffet table that sophisticated catered look,place single blossoms and leaves here and there among the food platters on your table. Dont use a boquet of flowers in a vase or centerpiece. The free form scattering of flowers will make your table setting look lavish and extravagant for the same cost.

What is your favorite color?Me, Im a pink addict but they said Watery blues and fresh greens can help you relax after tiring day. Warm tones, such as reds, oranges and yellows can help get you up and going. Use different colors in different parts of your home, to help create moods you want.Cool colors where you want to relax such as a bedroom....warm ones where you want a feeling of high energy such as the kitchen.
There are time that we are in bad mood.We are just human! BAd moods magnify trivial annoyances and dampen enjoyment. There are some quick fix tactics to restore emotional equilibrium. Like "EAT SOME CHOCOLATE".It prompts the release of serotonin the brains natural chemical upper. Eat slowly, savoring the sweetness and texture. Limit yourself to two pieces a chocolate binge will only make you feel worse later.Another is "SHIFT THE FOCUS AWAY FROM YOUR BAD MOOD" by doing something for others like send a funny card to a friend..do volunteer works."CONTACT SOMEONE WHO MAKES YOU FEEL GOOD".Simply ask that person to help you cheer up or bask in the glow of his/her positive outlook. Just being around a child for instance may awaken your own natural joy and enable you to regain your perspective.In case you can't reach anyone, keep a photo of a loved one nearby.The important is avois people who bring yo down.

make money is not easy but there is a way to earn quick by checking payperpost.Im so happy today because after three months of blogging my blog finally approved. What a great day?I been denied many times but I never lost hope. All you need is to be patient.There is a valid reason why you been denied at first. If you want to earn and make money better hurry and check payperpost .I believe that payperpost is the fastiest way get paid to blog . You dont have to strike it rich on a TV game show to become a millionaire.Just sit in the computer and earn.I heard from other co-bloggers about PPP and I was convinced to sign up. I did not waste my time and I did. I want to earn too like them. It's an easy way just grab opportunities and promote their sites. It's a big help for them not only for me.Thanks to payperpost for these great opportunity.Once I earn I'll save it or probably I can send money to the Philippines for my family and help out our monthly bills. What are you waiting for check payperpost and make money.
Do you have problem on your stretch mark? Well, I do. STretch mark can be faded by massaging the skin around them. These scars result from major weight changes or hormonal shifts during and after pregnancy. elevated hormones levels seem to damage collagen a fibrous protein found in skin. Massaging healthy skin near stretch mark pushes collagen into their borders, helping to fill in the scars. It also stimulates collagen synthesis. Exercise, which improves muscle tone and lowers body fat.
You have probably heard that passengers on long flights may develop dangerous blood clots. Yes, it's true. When my husband went to the Philippines his Doctor worry on him because he had a heart problem and it may cause blood clots.Love can move mountains.With GOd Helps he arrived safely.What you may not realize is that people who take day trips in cars or trains may also be at risk. ANy form of travel longer than four hours increases one's chances for deep vein thrombosis. I dont have an idea about this " Blood clot " but when I arrived here our Doctor explain this to me. We always go to Alabama 2-3times a yr and it takes 12 hrs from here to there.Blood clots in the legs can be deadly when they break away and travel to the lungs, heart or brain. To counteract periods of immobility while traveling, plan to take hourly walks and do exercise to contract your calf muscles. Avoiding sedatives and alcohol is important too. Treatment is most effective when DVT is detected early. Symptoms include calf pain or cramps and swelling of the leg.

Is your dog ready to play with others without a leash?One of best things to happen to dogs and those who love them is the growth in popularity of off-leash recreation areas nationwide. As open spaces dwindle and property value make the large suburban backyard a thing of the past, these dog parks have emerged as a way to provide what most dogs desperately need.More exercise! Sedentary dogs develop health issues such as obesity and behaviour problems that are worsened by excess energy and boredom such as digging, barking destructive chewing and the cattch all complaint of dog lovers everywhere. Dog parks make dogs tired and a tired dog is happy, good dog.The biggest problem with dog parks is not the dog but the people.Some od those problems are caused by people who know better but other conflicts could easily be prevented with a little knowledge and foresight on the part of dog owners who truly dont know better. dog parks work only when people work at them. If park problems become more the rule than the exception the trend will reverse and the dog park will disappear. Be responsible for your dog and help to keep the drive for more dog parks alive.

We will be out of town today. we are leaving this afternoon.So, I have to go now.See ya'll on sunday
I have a daughter and always tell her that we are not rich. Tell kids about family finances in age-appropriate ways. Around age five, children can understand taht the family must earn money to buy what we needs. Try grocery shopping wuth kids, expalining the budget for that trip, then showing them how you use the money. By age eight or nine, most children can understand taht spending involves prioritizing. try lining up 100 pennies, saying they represent your monthly family income and showing how much goes for fixed costs like mortgage and food and how much is left for other things.
I never drink hard liqour in my whole life nor a sip of beer.But dont you know that drinking wine helps prevent macular degeneration. People who had as few as two glasses of red or white wine per year have their risk of developing this potentially blinding eye disease. Wine contains phenols, anti-oxidants believed to prevent retinal damage.Also dont smoke, control your blood pressure and limit your intake or saturated fats.

Money!, it takes so long to earn it and so little time to spend it. Sometimes we don't even know where it went.Isn't that right! But it doesnt have to be that way.With planning, the wise use of credit card a few money saving techniques, negotiating savy and well honed sale seeking skills. We can all get more value for our dollar. We can stretch that dollar by using coupons and credit wisely. Phone calls (comparison shopping by phone)may take a few minutes but they can save you hundred of dollars on major purchases. We can keep more of the dollars we earn by maximizing our tax deduction and we can double or triple our money, over the long term by making investment that pay off.MOney has a way of dissapearing out of our wallets. Most people waste their money because of poor spending practices. To avoid that recognize where you're spending it by keeping receipts over a m onth long period. If your money is not going into savings it's going somewhere. How about you? How do you save and spend your money?

Everyday I got junk mail from our mail box. Sometimes, Im just wasting my gas checking my mails with junk mail only. We been keep telling the post office everytime we renew our mail box not to put junk mails in our box but still there. The best way to stop the junk mail you dont want is by using the no postage necessary envelope usually found within the junk mail packet. Cut out your name and address label and send it back in that envelope along with a note saying " Please take me off your mailing list"

You know the feeling. The plane takes off, and almost immediately your ears start hurting.What to do? Swallow, yawn, or chew gum from takeoffuntil the plane reaches cruising altitude or for more severe pain, pinch your nostrils closed and gently attempt to exhale through yur nose with your mouth closed. The pain of airplanes ears develops because aircraft cabins are presurized to the altitude equivalent of 8,000 ft.,where the air is considerably thinner than it is at sea level. This thinner air does not exert as much pressure on the eardrum outward, causing ear pain. All the techniques for dealing with airplane ears equalize the pressure on both sides of the eardrum by opening the tiny tube that allows the air into the area behind the eardrum.If airplane ears a real problem try taking an over the counter decongestant about a half hour before flying. Decongestant also help open the tube that equalizes air pressure in the ear.

I work in the Insurance Company(Philippine American Life Insurance co.) as an Admin Officer for 5 years. First I dont have an idea what good benefits you can get from Insurance but if you really know what is the benefit of having an Insurance,Im sure you will choose many life insurance.Some dont believe on Insurance specially our own friend in the Philippines. If I have enough money to pay Insurance I will buy many life Insurance Coverage.Good for your loved ones,(you could not tell)although premium is too high specially if you get the big face amount.Claiming no problem as long as the requirement is there (base on my experience)and you can loan on your own policy if you need it as soon as your policy have a CASh Value usually it takes 3 yrs base on my experience but I dont know with some other Insurance company. When most people set out to buy life insurance, they choose either a term or cash value policy but policy choices and strategies are much, much, more diverse today.For me, I choose Life Insurance....Buying both types of policies for term and cash value is ideal when an individual or family wants a large amount of coverage and the savings benefit of cash value policy but can afford the high premiums specially here in UNited States.Life insurance can protect heirs in the event of death of the breadwinner and can help them pay estate tax.Policy Illustration that are not guaranteed and that do not clearly indicate premiums may rise or death benefits may lapsed early.Compare what each insurance policy is willing to guarantee contractually.
Living, Breathing and exposed your skin is the packaging that holds you together. every human body is handily covered about two square yards of skin. In fact the skin is our largest organ and it serves a multitude of puposes. It safeguards your internal organs, and it's the all in one container that holds in all your precious bodily fluids but skin has a lot more responsibility than keeping your parts in place.Whether we like it or not, we are often judged by how our skin looks to others.Our skin needs to be pampered, soothed and cared for to keep us looking our best.Of course, there are other elements to us that meets the eye of the beholder. What are the real ramifications of beauty? For me, the total look is actually a great combination of how we look plus how we feel.
If you want maximum protection from an underarm product, choose an antiperspirant. If you're concerned with odor, choose a deodorant. Odor is caused by the bacteria that feed on chemical components in underarm sweat. A deodorant works by controlling the population of that bacteria and does not help control wetness. An antiperspirant helps control both odor and wetness. The active ingredient in an antiperspirant is aluminum a mineral that does a lot more than just control bacteria. Aluminum travels to sweat glands, where it reacts to obstruct the flow of perpiration.

Life in the country is certainly different from life in the city, although the two are certainly intertwined. In the Philippines,just like your living in the province. Fax machines, computer modems and overnight express mail link one population to the other and the old stereo types of rural folk as backward and less educated is getting a long overdue revision. By it's nature what most separates rural living from urban living is land. In the country, folks commonly live in close contact with a landscape. In the cities, people have less chance to experience trees, crops and the vagaries of weather. country living is most often shared with other creatures too domesticated farm animal, household pets and wildlife of all kinds. Residing in a rural neighboorhood requires a respect for animanl life and an appreciation for the ecology of living things.It's all interconnected, because there are fewer public utilities and government serices in the country, ruralpeople are forced to be more self-reliant than their urban cousins. They may service their own machinery, grow their own vegetables or find alternative sources of energy when the need arises. It's a special way of life, to be sure and not mean for eveyone but for those with an affinity for nature and a sense of indepenence the rewards can be great.
