Yesterday, I wrote about my Feng Shui blunders. I was surprised with the overwhelming emails that I received expressing their support for me.
A Senator’s wife who happens to be a regular reader and also got the pendant from me called to help me check about the NBI/Police Major that is supposedly assigned to be the aide of Senator Drilon. As it turned out, and also as expected, there is no such person.
Another reader who happens to be a wife of somebody from NBI will also check if there’s such a person in the NBI. As I write this I’m still awaiting for her feedback.
A lot of my readers whom I’ve personally met also sms’d me (some called) to offer their support, help, and/or prayers. I really appreciate this a lot! I honestly didn’t expect the overwhelming response.
I really appreciate all the messages, call, and help but there is one particular reader who emailed me that really made me realize something. His message was simple but really straight from the heart. He also thought me a valuable lesson. Allow me to share his email with you; I’ll just call him by his initials Atty. B.
Atty. B wrote:
I just read about your incident with CR, and I’m quite concerned about it.
It’s really unfortunate when people become unruly, especially when they’re (supposedly) from government. It gives public service a bad image, or gives it a worse image than it already is.
Bottomline: you may have had a few Feng Shui “blunders”, but I’m certain you have more Feng Shui “wonders” generated, because of the countless people you have helped. You exemplified so much generosity through your time and effort in sharing your Feng Shui knowledge to the world.
Being a person in government myself, I abhor the name-dropping and arrogant attitude of CR. More so, as the he claims to be in the police force.
Pls inform me if CR keeps still keeps on bugging you. Modesty aside too, maybe I can (do) something to help.
Before Atty. B’s email I was already seriously considering ‘closing’ this blog. I knew that when I started this blog I’m opening myself to all sorts of people. And this incident with CR stressed that belief and made me think to just stop blogging, however, that thought didn’t last long because of all the wonderful response from readers but most of all this email from Atty B. This is because Atty. B indirectly pointed out something to me and that is again I’m focusing on the negative. Why should I be dissuaded with one stressful incident while there were so much more good things happening because of this blog? And by good things I don’t refer to the supposedly good things that this blog site brings to its readers, but I’m counting my own personal blessings. As of last count, since I’ve started this blog I’ve gained several more friends. More than my 10 fingers can count. Also, all I have to do is write about a stressful incident and several of my readers will sms me, call me, send me prayers, all these only means one thing, I get so much positive energy.
This reminds me of a discussion I had with a pediatric cardiologist who at that time just lost a patient on the operating table. He was really sad for what happened but he didn’t seem depress. I ask him how does he feel that he just lost a patient. He said that he really feels sorry for the boy’s parents, and that he feels sad but – I WILL COUNT THE LIVING, I WILL COUNT THE ONES WHO GET WELL, BUT I WILL NOT COUNT THE DEAD. I WILL REMEMBER THEM AND LEARN FROM THEM BUT I WILL COUNT ONLY THE LIVING.
What happened with me is really nothing compared to what the doctor has to go through everyday of his life. But I think that it is a very important lesson that each one of us has to learn. COUNT THE LIVING, LEARN FROM THOSE WHO DIED, BUT COUNT ONLY THE LIVING. We need to ALWAYS LOOKS AT THE POSITIVE LEARN FROM OUR MISTAKES BUT ALWAYS COUNT OUR BLESSINGS.
Many people say that they were blessed and that their lives improved because of this blog. I should remember that. But more importantly, I should remember that I should count the blessings that I get from this blog. People who I know will always send me positive energies when I need them.
