Love and Hate

Can you imagine how two different people who grew up in two different worlds having different attitudes, trying to live in one roof , making things work out just to save their marriage?

Being married for more than 10 years made me realize that there are a thousand things I hate about my husband. Why am I still married? It’s because of these 10 things I love about him. Many couples would end up either separated or divorced because of this thousand things. But for me, i took it as a challenge in our relationship. I used this 100 things to make our relationship better.

For 10 long years we have been fighting and fighting on petty and huge things. Whenever I recall those huge fights we had and the reasons of our fight, it still breaks my heart and ask myself why am I still married. But the thought of those 10 little things makes me feel his love.

Others might call it martyrdom but for me its love. No relationship started with hate. It always starts with love. But as the relationship ages, you will discover many things and you will realize that what you love is what he hates and what he loves is what you hates. The only common thing that both of you are holding is that love you felt inside.

I just heard this song 7 things by Miley Cyrus there was a line there that I wanted to quote – “…And the 7th thing I like most that you do,
You make me love you..” No matter how much you hate him, you still end up realizing that you still love him.

Become an Employee of Choice

How does it feel when you were called for an interview by a company where you did not submit your resume? To be able to have one is not easy. An employer usually looks at your educational background, work experience and sometimes the University where you came from. What if you don’t have all these things? You’re transcript of record shows that you’re only an average student, just graduated from college, and finished your degree in a not so high standard kind of school.

Don’t feel down because all of us have our own skill that others might not have. Know where you are good at and what you love to do. Everyone is unique in each way. Others may have brilliant brains because they are able to give brilliant ideas; others are brilliant in a way that they can put those brilliant ideas into colorful pictures; and others are brilliant in selling those colorful pictures and make an earning out of it. So list down all the things you are good at and include it in your resume under ‘Special skills’.

Develop your special skills by constant practice, motivation and think positive. If in drawing is where you are good at, then draw. Draw what you like, what you love and what you want to see on your wall. Show your work to other people and let them make comments on it. May it be positive or negative accept it. More if it’s negative because you will have space for improvement. Attach your work in your resume so that the employer will see proof of your work.

Think in advance. Be on the shoes of the employer. What would the employer want to see in your resume? What are the questions that the employer might ask if he sees your resume? What are the qualities that are needed for the position? This entire thing should appear in your resume. Sell yourself.

Think positive. You can do it. Have confidence in yourself. Believe in yourself. If you don’t believe in yourself then who will?
