Let's remember our Overseas Filipinos. Hong Kong is my second home. Many of us in the Philippine community will have ties with Hong Kong. Either we will have relatives working there or maybe we are working there ourselves. It is sad to see disruption and chaos returning to the streets of a city that many of us now call home. Latest news HERE
Let's remember why they are there, why they choose to live in a city which is basically under siege from militant demonstrators and hard liners Mainland backed police forces alike. They are there so they can put food on their family's table, so their children can have a good education, so their father can get the medical treatment they so badly need.
They are truly heroes in these difficult times. Many of them put up with bad employers who disrespect them, who mistreat them, and who value them so little despite the care our sisters provide to their families. Without the support our sisters give to the Hong Kong community their economy would collapse, yet they are ignored and abused by some police when they make a complaint, and the Hong Kong laws are discriminatory and biased. Keep them in your hearts and your minds while you enjoy peace and freedom with your families.

I'm Madelen I will share my positivity in life. I came from Philippines and I’ m 40 years old. I am married to my awesome husband Peter Butcher. He is a American football player at Ventura Cardinals for 8 years then he works at post office until now for 39 years. About myself I’ m going to be 40 this end of the year. My love journey start when i know my hubby at this Facebook group page because i am an administrator of this group. It’s started say "HI" to my inbox and he sent me a friend request so i accepted it at May 1, 2014. Before my dream while working at Hongkong i save money then apply to cross country at Canada. Anyways i started talking to my hubby the day i accepted him as a friend we talk almost 6 hours that night. Then we continue everyday i called he called like 5× daily. I realized that i fall from him when few month passed by. I like him a lot i told him about my whole and he is there listening to me if im sad he can make me laugh and happy. Sometimes I cried he is always there no matter what. Then one day he ask me if I like him so i confess yes i like you and same thing he said me too and I’ m falling from you.

After a year he visited me again and proposed to me. I am so happy and blessed to have him in my life. The best blessing i got. The following year for the 3rd times he came back to Hong Kong again but before that he brought my mom a ticket to see him Hong Kong so mom flew to Iloilo to manila and manila to Hong Kong with my niece.

My mother told me I CANNOT FIND A MAN THEY SAME LIKE HIM THAT HE RESPECTED ME ALOT. the way he cares for us is awesome. Before my mom left he ask my hand to my mom and mom say yes that time he was so happy.

As my posts and website are all about positivity, I thought I would let you know how I deal with the people we come across in our daily lives who are less positive than I try to be. Some are even very miserable. Sometimes people can get miserable for a good reason and before assuming they are just a miserable person it is always good to check if there is some reason they are this way - maybe a death in the family, or a business failure.
Before deciding how to deal with them, see if they need some help in some way. Maybe they just need a few words of kindness. But then, we all know some people who are just naturally miserable - always seeing the worst in any situation, always worrying about the slightest thing.
The first and most important thing is to not let them make you miserable. Stay positive and try to show them the positive sides of their situation. Sympathise with them, but don't let yourself be dragged down to their level. You can only help them if you stay positive -don't join their 'pity party'. This way you may be able to help them become more positive.
If you have friends who are always negative and miserable, it's best not to spend too much time with them. Some people just cannot be changed. The skill is to be able to see who can be helped and who cannot.
Please share your story to inspired people to be positive in every way. :)
Coming to terms with the Virus. It is nearly six weeks now that we have had 'Lockdown' here in the UK. Read HERE
Coming to terms with the Virus. It is nearly six weeks now that we have had 'Lockdown' here in the UK. It didn't seem such a big thing when it started, but as the days wore on it began to feel like a prison, or like the aftermath of a nuclear bomb, with deserted streets and shuttered shops and restaurants.
In the US they seem to have taken the whole thing much more lightly with beach parties, and open shops. In some states it seemed to make little difference at all. I'm sure we've all wondered how essential all of this is. Although we are told we have to do this, there is a substantial body of opinion that is questioning the whole basis for the lockdown.
The truth is - neither you or I can question whether we need to do this, or how long we have to do it for. We can't question this for two reasons: 1 - unless you are an epidemic expert you can't possibly have an opinion that has any basis, and 2 - even if you are well-qualified, there are so many differing facts, statistics, projections, going around that even the experts all disagree. Okay, let me tell you MY opinion. Whether we like it or not, and whether we should be doing it or not, this plague has IMPROVED us. It has taught us the value of the wonderful NHS healthcare service that we have always had, and for me, when this is over I will never again take for granted a coffee and sandwich in a cafe or a trip to the zoo with my son.
My husband Arthur wrote a book and you can get it free.

This week I want to talk about bravery. We are fed news items all the time of bad people doing bad things, nasty things happening to good people. Viruses attacking us and our loved ones. It would be easy to think the world was a bad, sad and evil place. It is true there is some evil in the world, but if we look for it we can find happy stories, positive events, and bravery, There is so much bravery all around if only we look for it. There is the bravery of millions of soldiers around the world who risk their lives everyday to protect us.
There is the bravery of mothers who brave the pains and dangers of childbirth in order to have a family. Bravery shines through in many areas, especially today with having to deal with the virus and follow the rules that keep us safe. The bravery of medical staff, emergency services, and retail workers in helping us everyday, and putting their lives at risk by doing so is a wonderful example of bravery in action.
Finally there is a bravery that is never discussed in the newspapers, on tv, or on the internet. It is the bravery of All of Us.. We are All brave in our own way. Whether it's by supporting a loved one who is sick, helping a neighbor in distress, working for a charity organization, or working tirelessly to keep our families safe and happy. All of these things are acts of bravery, putting our own selfish best interests aside to help others. On balance there is much more bravery in the world than cowardice - We should ALL be proud of ourselves. The world is a better place with each and every one of us in it.
