A Motivational Story: The Pregnant Dog and Elephant

One of the stories circling around the Internet that I can relate to is the story between a pregnant dog and a pregnant elephant. I have wanted something so badly, but it is not yet given to me. I hope in the right time, it will come.

Here is the story:

“An elephant and a dog became pregnant at the same time. Three months down the line, the dog gave birth to six puppies. Six months later the dog was pregnant again, and nine months on it gave birth to another dozen puppies. The pattern continued.

On the 18th month the dog approached the elephant questioning: “Are you sure that you are pregnant? We became pregnant on the same date. I have given birth three times to a dozen puppies and they are now grown to become big dogs, yet you are still pregnant. What’s going on? The elephant replied: “There is something I want you to understand. What I am carrying is not a puppy but an elephant. I only give birth to one in two years. When my baby hits the ground, the earth feels it. When my baby crosses the road, human beings stop and watch in admiration. What I carry draws attention. So what I’m carrying is mighty and great.”

Don’t lose faith when you see others receive answers to their prayers. Don’t be envious of others’ testimony. If you haven’t received your own blessings, don’t despair. Say to yourself, “My time is coming, and when it hits the surface of the earth, people shall yield in admiration.

Stay encouraged.”

Books I Have Read

Reading an English book from cover to cover has always been my aim or part of my to-do list that I thought would never happen.

When I was in high school, I read Filipino romance novels. I could finish reading two or three in a day because the number of pages for each was normally up to 140 or 150.

The writers did not really write much. They did not like to stretch the story or maybe it was a requirement for publication.

Love stories. Who would not like to read love stories? I would borrow the novels from classmates or schoolmates and return when done or pass to another classmate or schoolmate until the whole class or school read them. Continue reading “Books I Have Read”

A Long Distance Relationship That Didn’t Last

broken heart

A young couple declared their love for each other on social media, mostly on Facebook because the other one uses free data.

Their respective families, friends, relatives, classmates, schoolmates, colleagues at work, neighbors, acquaintances, and others were witnesses to their immense love for each other.

The girl would post about how she misses him. How she wished he’s there hugging and kissing her, instead of talking to each other on Skype or Messenger. The guy would then post about how he loves her so much and if only she’s with him in a desert country but promises financial stabilization and wonderful future.

Trouble in Paradise

There were some shocking events at my work in the past few days. Our supervisor resigned. She applied for another position in another department, same company. I guess she could no longer handle the stress. She was handling a growing number of employees, and she had a lot of tasks aside from supervising us. She’s able to neutralize our situation. Our project is new, not even a year-old yet, and because of her knowledge and skills with the tool we’re using, she’s able to contribute and helped us learn it the fast way.

Now that she’s gone, another supervisor is tasked to handle us. That is not the problem as she’s an approachable, kindhearted, and good leader. The problem is our country lead was assigned to another area. We’ve been told the position was offered to her as she has more advanced IT skills and she knows the tool more than anyone else so she can help a lot, she can help solve the existing issues. Because of her transfer, she appointed her close friend and seatmate to be the new country lead, which angers another colleague because he was our trainer. He was next to the previous country lead when it comes to seniority or longevity. He trained all of us, and the fact that he was not even considered for the job he got so furious and jealous and betrayed.
