Be Proud for the Graduates

Posted by greaterknowledge on March 22, 2008

I was with some of my friends the other day. Things were going well and everybody was happy. We were gladly enjoying ourselves. Exchanging our stories to each other. Then, one of my friends told us that her sister-in-law has finally graduated in College. Not only did she graduate, but she finished her courses with flying colors. She became the cum laude in her University. I was really proud. You see, her sister-in-law has worked so hard for this. Being a mom of 3 kids and a housewife is hard. The fact that, she was trying to balance her time with her family and studies, we have to give her credit for being patient and goal-oriented. That makes her an outstanding person. Regardless of what her negative attitudes were. We can still say that we ought to be proud of her.

It’s just sad when others can’t seem to really see the point of just being happy for that person’s achievement. There may be some things we can’t explain why a person succeed but, we have no reason to doubt how that person succeeded. Giving the person a thought of doubtfulness is mean. There are other people who just can’t bare the fact that some people are better than them. Though, they may think they are better. It’s just a matter of keeping it to yourself. You don’t have to say it out loud that, there must’ve been something that made her get reached that high. The earth is round my friend. It’s not always you who’s on top. Give others a chance to feel proud of themselves.

Imagine yourself being in the same position as her. You know you did your best. You’ve worked so hard even though nobody sees it or nobody even tries to notice it. Then, one day, you were finally given a chance to be known as one of the best in your school. Isn’t it that, you want to feel support and you want them to be happy for you? Doubting you would make you feel hurt. The fact that they’re not always around you, to judge how you got that achievement is not fair.

Don’t worry my friend. There may be other people who are envious of what you have right now. But, there are still more people who are very happy that you’ve finally reached your dreams and are here to support you all the way. I’m so happy for you. Keep it up! You deserve to be an Architect.

Improving your writing skills

Posted by greaterknowledge on January 23, 2008

Sometimes we thought that we are not capable of writing a very inspirational article or maybe a book. It takes practice for a person to do that. Well, I cannot say that I am a very good writer. But, I am open to getting to know more. Asking other writer’s advice is one way to improve yourself. Don’t be afraid to receive criticisms because this is your key to your goal. Being a good writer needs motivation, hard work and creativity. You must like what you do to become a very good writer. To be honest. I am not a writer. But, I love to share my thoughts and point of views to other people. I think, this makes me one of hell of a writer. I may have similar thoughts from other writers. But the fact that I’m having fun and loving it. Who cares? I just want to write.

I once read an article called Good Writing. It says;

In order to start with a good writing; you must want to produce a good writing. Second, you have to or you must believe that you are able to produce a good writing.

You see, I’ve highlighted the words you must remember. These are the tips on producing good articles or writing. You also have to have confidence in yourself for to you to be able to show the readers that you know what you’re talking about.

Writing always starts with a bad draft. But a good writer makes sure that he gets rid of the impurities until he comes up with a very good article. You don’t have to lose hope if you feel that your writing sucks. It’s a matter of rewriting it over and over again. Until you reach the best of your writing.

Love, want and practice. I’ve recently discovered a site where you can write reviews. Well, this is one way of practicing because people get to vote for your review. These reviews are rated in some way. The best part here is that, you get paid for writing a review. Try it.

So, goodluck for those aspiring writers. Everybody can be one, you just have to want it.
