How to be You

“How to be you?” Few times I heard this question from some girls and I am flattered, of course, just this morning:

how to be u

Thank you so much for this comment, It gave me energy and idea to write today!

How to be someone is impossible that is for sure, one time a pretty lady said to me I wish I have your face, your hair, your skin your body hahaha what is this Marlou Arizala 🙂 “Goodbye Old Face” hehe https://pinaypowerblog.com/2017/10/02/goodbye-old-face/

It is good to copy someone’s good behavior that will help us a lot. But cloning someone’s face and identity is something diverse. Everyone is unique, we have our own way of presenting ourselves, our own style of approaching others and different features are given to us by the creator. Practically enhance what we have and that for sure makes a big difference.

Let’s talk about enhancing our look if we want to look good and achieve something better we need to invest time, money and effort. There is no magic in maintaining our own beauty and to look good all the time. It requires time management, motivation and most especially we enjoy doing it. But not excessively do it! To look elegant doesn’t necessarily need a huge amount of money, there are many simple and cheaper ways to look and feel better. Be creative, research and don’t be fooled by commercialized products and services. Of course, since I prefer using all naturals and organic skincare products then I would like to suggest to please try to avoid chemicals as much as possible in feeding your skin.

Sometimes when we admire someone we are wishing to be in their place. But we are not aware of what exactly is going on in his/her life, we have no idea of their struggles, conflicts, heartache, problems, risk and many more. Just like “don’t judge the book by its cover” we judge by its cover, we do admire by its cover too until we get to know each page of the book and maybe surprisingly find out that our lives are far better and peaceful.

All are beautiful, all are pretty, all are sexy it’s just so happen not all are the same in demonstrating these qualities. Confidently carry yourself and boost your aura! No negative or any bad feeling in any of your part. Feel beautiful do not degrade yourself, be optimistic, and appreciate all the bits and pieces of your body as the greatest gift that you’ve got! So take good care of these gifts and enjoy.

Let’s feel good about ourselves all the time!

Cheers:)

I’m pretty but still single

I have few girlfriends around looks so pretty but still single. It is so intriguing a pretty woman is still single or remain single for a long time. And there are some women who look so simple, silent,  not that pretty and not even sexy but fully occupied.

What goes wrong here? For my girlfriends who are in this situation, I will try my very best to enumerate some tips that I hope can help you 🙂

A common concern of a single woman is how to be attractive and noticed by a guy. One thing complicated is how to keep the guy’s interest after catching them. Every single lady wants to know how to flirt, get noticed, seduced and be attractive, it is so challenging to succeed in love.

Here are some tips and behavior that can help you increase attraction:

  • Always keep fresh and…

Emotionally Connected

Did you ever experience a time that you’ve just talked to someone and you already feel connected and comfortable? There is something between the two of you that is happening at that moment and you are enjoying every minute of it. Then you wonder, that was what?  I can say it is what we called “Emotional Connection”

I believe that emotional connection is one of the most important foundations of a lasting relationship. Everyone wants to feel loved by their partner. When we have emotionally connected everything goes naturally, no pretentions, no hesitations and no stress and no drama. Being emotionally connected, we build a foundation of trust and respect.

Maintaining this connection in a relationship will promote forgiveness, understanding, engagement, less emotional issues, and disruptions.

Emotional connection happens naturally, we cannot forge it or neither can’t we create it. If we fake it then everything in your relationship is fake! And will never last!

When you are emotionally connected with your partner then I must congratulate you, lucky to be one of the luckiest people in the world of relationship.

You are enjoying the benefits of being emotionally connected and truly loved by your partner. Here are few benefits that you will enjoy when you are truly emotionally connected with your partner:

Love making is going to be out of this world. Enjoying the simplest way of intimacy, such as holding hands deepens the romantic connection, one kiss and you feel like heaven.
You are valued and respected in any way

Having an amazing conversation together. How amazing it is to be able to share your life with someone and you are always in-tune whatever topic you are discussing together, from the craziest to the most serious thoughts.

When you have a deep emotional connection, it is so easy to communicate what you want and needs. You are not scared to argue together, instead, you are able to communicate clearly knowing that whatever the issue is, that both of you will understand and compromise.

Knowing that someone is always there for you no matter what is indeed the most wonderful feeling you could ever have.

When you truly emotionally connected with someone in an intimate relationship, your body releases the mood-enhancing hormone – (I forgot what is that hormone called 🙂 What I know is that this hormone enhances our sense of trust, optimism and triggers the part of our brain that forms that connection. Example it boosts good mood, orgasm etc
You have more fun together

Never stop talking – future, common interest, past experiences, goals – these strengthen the relationship.

Uhmm this seems to be heaven … so when you find that emotional connection try your best to keep it, maintain it “for life” 🙂

Thanks for dropping by.

Emotional Intelligence a Missing Part

Going through my emails and this seminar catches my attention “Emotional Intelligence for Leaders” this is what I was wishing for a long time ago. I hope that emotional intelligence is part of the curriculum from Senior High school to College. Curriculum mainly focuses on theory, technical skills, communication skills, personality development and career development. I don’t remember we had something for emotional intelligence when I was studying, I am not so sure in the current curriculum. I had some behavioral subjects that are because I was taking up Psychology, but still, it is not specifically about emotional intelligence.

What normally happens is we learn “emotional intelligence” through experience, through other’s lives, and from our failures. Then we realized that adult world is not all about intelligence, we need to be emotionally prepared as well. We are lucky if our parents prepared us to be emotionally strong in facing obstacles in life, but what if not.

Lately, it has been realized that Leaders must have this very important competency which is the right level of emotional intelligence to be a more effective leader.

It is an important characteristic of anyone at any level of an organization. A leader with the right emotional intelligence can have a far-reaching influence over their relationships, how they will manage their team, and overall how they will interact with individuals in their workplace.

I would suggest let’s have some time to learn and understand the emotional intelligence and how it will help us improves our level of communication and productivity. How we see things from the perspective of others to increase our interpersonal skills. How we recognize own and others emotions and use this to improve their performance and our relationship with them. How we use our emotions to solve some issues. Understand emotions and how emotions change and why. How to manage our own emotion and others emotion and many more.

I hope you enjoy my introduction to emotional intelligence, it is helpful if you will read more about this subject and try to apply what you will learn to your work and even to your personal life.

Cheers xoxo

 

Keep your Beauty and Career No Matter What

Good morning 🙂

I Had a good night last night, it was my only son’s birthday and we had an amazing dinner with the family. I just woke up, grab a cup of coffee and something came into my mind. My kids are grown up! Imagine my son, the youngest of my four children is now 14 years old. And suddenly flashed back into my mind all these years I’m raising my four children alone. I’ve asked myself, what if I did not continue my study when I’ve got pregnant with my eldest? What if I don’t have a career? What if I just stayed with my ex just because I cannot provide for my kids? These questions that made me understand the importance of career to a woman.

Ladies, never give up no matter what. Our parents sacrificed for us to finish our studies, dreamed about us to have a good career, a good life. Some women, when they got married they set aside their career, their personal development, their beauty and focus on their family. I’m not saying it is wrong, of course as a wife, a mother it is our “responsibility” however, I would like to emphasize that we have a responsibility to ourselves as well. Do not forget “YOU”, preserve something for you, and believe me you will need it for sure, it is called “Self-Preservation” please read my article about self-preservation here: https://pinaypowerblog.com/2018/06/15/self-preservation-2/

So, whatever happens, do not give up your beauty, do not give up your career. You never know what is waiting for you next, what is your future with your partner. Be strong, be mindful, and love yourself.

Have a great day ahead ladies 🙂

What are you doing?

Where are you?

Are you lonely, hungry, happy or away?

I want to know

I followed you

Any thoughts of you make my day complete

When nothing new

I’m incomplete

Tempted to message you to tell I am waiting for your post

When everything arranged love will follow soon

All are busy looking for you

Where to start is everybody’s question

How do you look like is not important

Neither if I will like you or not

What important are you are ready to start a family

All I can do is to close my eyes and pray to God

When everything arranged love will follow soon

 

I’m just a good daughter, follow what must be

Here you come my way

Without any clue

Who you are, where you came from

Are you good, are you gentle

Will you love me too? Will I learn to love you?

Everything is arranged to eventually love each other

I just close my eyes and pray to God

When everything arranged love will follow soon

 

I’m powerless, all I can do is to accept and pray

Wishing myself a better life with you

I’m scared, I’m nervous

What is waiting for me when I’m with you?

Now that you’re beside me

I’m shivering not because I love you

Because we are arranged to love each other

Life must go on

Let’s live with it, work with it

Until we manage to love each other

I just close my eyes and pray to God

When everything arranged love will follow soon

 

Feast of happiness

All faces around me are smiling

All are happy for me

All are congratulating me

I’m smiling, am I really smiling?

I’m scared, the night has come

What shall I do? What shall I feel?

I just close my eyes and pray to God

When everything arranged love will follow soon

 

By then

I can’t believe that

When everything arranged love will follow soon

I’m in love

I’m happy

I just close my eyes and pray to God

Thank you

For arranging my love

 

Thank you to my Indian colleagues for sharing their amazing arranged marriage love stories. Very inspiring and unique.
