If We Unite, Nobody Falls

“That's the most gratifying thing in the world, helping each other.” - Craig Robinson

Remember...Breathe & enjoy the little things in Life

The best way to reap the benefits of gratitude is to notice new things you’re grateful for every day. Opening your eyes to more of the world around you can deeply enhance your gratitude practice.

 

Embrace Failure

“If you’ve never failed, you’ve never tried anything new.” Albert Einstein said that. He was considered a failure from an early age, not speaking until he was nearly four years old, and not speaking fluently until he was 12.

You never know how your actions may affect others around you, so you might as well be kind to all.

 

Nature can repair our broken climate

PROTECT. RESTORE. FUND

This is why we'll be striking today, along with millions of others across the country and our globe. There is no planet B and we can still fix this.

Hakab na Olongapo 2019

Do you know that babies who get mommies’ milk tend to have lower risks for serious respiratory conditions, ear infections and stomach bugs; offers protection for mommies against high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, as well as heart disease, breast and ovarian cancers?

Plus, you are helping our Mother Earth too! Breastfeeding your baby over formula milk helps to reduce the amount of land needed for grazing cows and packaging required to make infant formula products. Cool, right?

For the 5th time, Isabelita Rosueta Organization (IROG) supported our yearly Breastfeeding Month Hakab Na 2019 community service with the Breastfeeding Pinays of Olongapo and Rotary Club of Downtown Olongapo held at SM City Olongapo last August 18, 2019.

Approach the world with gratitude

What are you grateful for today?

Appreciate the little things that we often take for granted.

ISABELITA ROSUETA ORGANIZATION - LOGICGATEONE CORP. FEEDS THE HEART AND NOURISHES THE SPIRIT

Food is for the body. We eat to refresh and reenergize our body. But rarely do we realize that food ultimately revitalizes our spirit. More often, it seems, we eat with the thought of filling our stomach with food, not realizing that it was the brain and the heart that signaled the stomach to seek food.

How often do we forget that the heart – a central part of the body – needs more than food to make the whole person happy or satisfied? We eat because we feel hungry. But do we usually think of eating to be happy or to avoid or to remove sadness and depression? Almost never! For the human body is more than a combination of water, air, minerals, vitamins and proteins. It is not the things we eat that give us life but the spirit in us we received from God.

What was the first thing that God did before He created humans? He planted a garden. No, it was not merely a garden – it was a home, a living room, a playground, a menagerie and a vast dining table complete with all the fresh, natural, organic goodies.

Was God happy feeding humans? Obviously! Of course, today we would think God is not at all concerned about humans because millions go hungry and die while others live in abundance and luxury.

Yes, our world is far from the Paradise that we believe our first parents used to live in and enjoy. In fact, we live in a world with millions of people in great need of shelter, education, food and health-care that government and private institutions have their hands full addressing day in and day out. Many of us live not just in hunger but in desperation, not knowing why this has happened to us humans and how we can cope with the gargantuan task of serving the world with food and, as we said, with happiness and contentment in life.

When we feed ourselves, we not only feel good and cheerful; we also experience peace and confidence that life – for many of us, at least – is a great blessing to have. But what do we feel when we voluntary feed others, especially those who have limited resources? The feelings of goodness, happiness, peace and confidence transform into something close to heavenly joy and triumph. It is as if God's material blessings we derive through our labors take on a sublime -- or call it magical – quality similar to that of owning tons of gold (no, even more valuable and beautiful!), giving us a wonderful new sense of being. It seems as if God Himself is smiling at us and telling us, "Thank you for feeding me!"

And that is how we become like God – when we feed and care for the hungry. If we were truly made in His image from the start, we portray that divine nature when we, like Him, seek out those who have basic needs and do something to make their life as fulfilling and as comfortable as the way we experience it. It was that way in the Garden as God intended it to be. It should be that way today in the world as He desires it to be. This could not be just a dream. With wars and famine all around us, we have enough of our share of nightmares. Let us keep the vision awake and alive.

And so, with these thoughts in mind, I express my deep appreciation for Isabelita Rosueta Organization - LogicGateOne Corp. for the wonderful privilege to be part of their Feeding Program at the Sto. Tomas Elementary School in Subic, Zambales. Under the selfless leadership of Joel and Roselyn Castillo, the young, dynamic, diligent and caring worker-volunteers of the two companies, together with Alpha Phi Omega Olongapo Alumni Association and other civic-minded members of the community, opened a soup kitchen last Friday, September 6, 2013, for scores of children, as part of Isabelita Rosueta Organization's outreach programs. Mrs. Isabelita Castillo and Mrs. Rosueta Tuazon, in whose names the foundation was named after, graced the occasion. Nanay Rosie opened the activity with a heartfelt and meaningful prayer of thanksgiving for allowing the foundation to share its blessings with the community.

The afternoon event was filled with shrill, festive cries of children playing games under the able guidance of Enrico Santos who acted as emcee, together with Christine Joy Ganoran. Parents were also on hand to encourage their children who competed against each other in parlor games, badminton, dama and chess. Awarding of prizes to the day's winners ended the program.

And so, no one went home feeling sad, depressed or lonely. And it was not merely because of the food. You know what it was, don't you? Next time, be sure to share not just your time, and experience how feeding and caring for others can make you a happier and richer person that you can ever imagine.
