Bakit?

Sabi nila simple lang ang relasyon ng dalawang taong nag-iibigan. Mahal mo siya at mahal ka niya dapat happy ending na. 

Pero di lang pala sapat ang mga salitang mahal niyo ang isa't isa. Kasi ang totoo niyan ay may mga bagay ka pang hahanapin sa relasyong inyong binuo. 

At sa kahahanap ng mga bagay na yon, unti-unting natatabunan ang simpleng rason kong bakit naging kayo.

Diyan na papasok ang disppointment at ang palaging hindi ninyo pagkakaintindihan, at mauuwi sa hiwalayan. 

Dahil sa ganyang ganap ay maraming BAKIT ang nabuong katanungan sa aking isipan. 

BAKIT di mo tingnan kong ano ang may meron tayo kesa hanapin ang mga bagay na wala?
BAKIT ayaw mo ng simple at gusto mo palaging komplekado?
BAKIT di mo maintindihan ang mga simpleng paliwanag?
BAKIT di mo nakikita ang pagmamahal ko para sa yo?
BAKIT wala kang nakikitang tama?
BAKIT sa halip na masaya tayo ay palagi nalang tayong nag-aaway?
BAKIT ang gulo ng utak mo?
BAKIT palaging negatibo ang pananaw mo sa buhay?

Mga BAKIT na ikaw lang ang nakakaalam ng mga sagot.

Gusto kong maintindihan pero ang hirap mong intindihin. 

BAKIT?

Not everyone can be a NURSE

Thanks to all the nurses who take care of my patients and every other patient. I may be a doctor, but you are the ones who deliver the care. You give the medications and hang the IV fluids. You wash the patients and turn them. You check their vitals and listen for bowel sounds. You walk with them. You talk with them. You fulfill their needs. And you provide comfort to them and their families.

You have seemingly limitless patience and endurance. You have heightened senses, for when you tell me you smell C. diff, I believe you. Your nose has probably smelled enough stool for 37 lifetimes.

Even if you work 3 or 4 days a week, and there are jokes are aplenty of how easy that must be, I know the shifts are anything but. You are constantly running around attending to patients and answering bells and whistles. Listening to patients. Taking orders from doctors. Getting yelled at by patients. Getting yelled at by doctors. And there are the days when there’s no time to eat, no time to drink, and surely, no time to pee.

And let’s not forget about all the charting. And the policies. And the limitations. And the regulations. And the frustration at not being able to do what you want for the patient, what is right for the patient.

The work can be vastly rewarding, but it can break you. The sickness, the death, the stress, the mistakes, the berating, and the insult when someone refers to you as “just a nurse.”

Do they not realize that when physicians are nothing more than baby interns learning to crawl, they rely on nurses for guidance? For education? For support? Or that when the resident is an attending, that the nurse can be a confidant? No, maybe they don’t realize that. They don’t know how many times a nurse catches a potentially lethal mistake from a doctor, because it’s all behind the scenes. As are the sacrifices a nurse makes to take care of a patient, a total stranger.

No, you’re not just a nurse, because not everyone can be a nurse.

I know I can’t. So thank you. Happy Nurses Week.

Thank you Lord

I must say, this is the best accomplishment I have. I have something I can call my own. I'm just very proud of it. 

Of course thank you so much to my Mom for the support. Without her this is impossible to accomplish.

And above all thank you Lord. 

Pag mahal ka...

Sabi nila pag mahal ka...babalikan ka. 

Sabi naman ng iba, pag mahal ka talaga...iiwan ka ba niya?

Hirap e explain di ba?

Di lang kasi sapat ang pag-ibig. Minsan kailangan nyong maghiwalay para matuto. Para mag grow bilang isang tao.

Sa bandang huli at naabot nyo na ang kanya-kanya nyong mga pangarap, pagtatagpuin parin kayo ng tadhana kong talagang para kayo sa isat isa.

Diyan masusubukan ang tibay ng inyong pagmamahalan. Iba't ibang tao ang inyong makakasalamuha. Iba't ibang pagsubok ang inyong mararanasan.

Pero sabi nga nila kahit ano pa yan, kung talagang para kayo sa isa't isa... DESTINY WILL FIND ITS WAY.
