A(H1N1) Update 3

scaredA new A(H1N1) Influenza virus case has been confirmed by the DOH at the De La Salle University. I heard that the DOH contacted all the students that may have had a close encounter with the first two victims. The new carrier of the said virus is a 17-year old male, who happened to be clueless as to whether or not he had close contact with the Japanese students. To be quite honest, many students are now paranoid because the number of DLSU A(H1N1) cases is slowly growing in number. All students are now advised to quarantine themselves so as not to unconsciously spread the virus.

UPDATE:

Total number of DLSU A(H1N1) cases is now 4. A friend has confirmed this to me, but I still need to find sources that will support this claim. The reliable source said that the new victim is now at the Makati Medical Center. Let’s pray for that person’s quick recovery. I shall blog again later for more details.

just a state of mind

Filed under: Random — Tags: , , , — crossedfingers @ 7:37 am

Being happy, as most people would say, is a state of mind. This means that our happiness merely depends on how we look at life or how we view the way things are presented to us. It’s like if life offers you a basket full of happy things, then treat every single piece of that basket as a gift because everything could really make a complete 180 in a matter of seconds. It could be that one day you could just be spending the best day of your life in an isolated, fully developed island with lots of gorgeous people surrounding you, and then the next day, you could be crying your eyes out alone in your room for ruining your own life by chiefly committing stupid, extraneous mistakes.

Sadness, on the other hand, is also a state of mind. This goes for depression, anxiety, and paranoia as well. It is so because when life begins to complicate things already, which then causes you to go insane 24/7, coping with life’s changes seems to be a very hard task to do. In most cases, it takes time for a person to adjust. And in some cases, some people are just left trapped in their complicated world due to their inability to adjust to life’s modifications. It is consequently just necessary for a person to have the guts to offset life’s impediments through positivity because when a person looks at things, may they be good or bad, in a positive way, coping would not be that very hard to do. Life would become and feel easier and lighter when we are happy. It’s as if you are effortlessly lifting a 40lb dumbbell with your pinkie finger.

So when life provides you a basket full of things to be happy and sad about, I would suggest that you just ignore the bad ones and concentrate on the better ones in order to have a better life and a better mind. Though it takes a lot of courage to not mind the unwanted things, just the act of trying could make a huge difference. Also, it is therefore just important to make the most out of what you have right now and feel glad for every little blessing that you have been given because when life starts to be a bitch, you could only wish for things to return to the way they were.

So there, I guess I just have to keep these things in mind because seriously, I have been so paranoid and sad in the last 48 hours.
