Many of us would do different things and various ways to be happy. Some would go to different places to make their self-good. Some would go to the mall and buy things that would make them happy. Some would watch comedy shows. Some would call and talk to a friend. Some would just lift their heads and look to the blue skies. Some would play music they like.
What would really make us enjoy life? Well, we just have to enjoy the people around us. Why? Because whatever we have, whatever we possessed if we do not learn to appreciate or enjoy the people around us, all our happiness is superficial. We have to face the fact that people surround us. We are living in the midst of people. One concrete scenario is the workplace. There are times that we do not enjoy working. One reason is that we do not enjoy the people we are working with.
Lately, I have been impinging on with my work associate. She is a nice woman but lately I observed that she could easily be aggravated. Her fuse is too short. I understand that some of our co-workers are sometimes difficult to deal with. Not only because of the age gap but also because of each of us has different culture. The attitude she have is a little virus that slowly infecting me. I started to think like her also and started not to like some of the co-workers that she does not like, as if I am trying to sympathize with her. However, deep inside me, I know this is not me. I should not feel the way in which she feels. I do not want to be too proud. I do not want to criticize my co-worker every minute. I have to correct this attitude right away. I do not like always wear a puckering eyebrow at work.
Instead of feeling how she feels. I talked to her and advised her to be more patient. I told her to start looking on their good qualities. Stop focusing on their ways that irritates her. Seize on looking on their bad qualities and trying to correct them. It’s not healthy emotionally and mentally to keep on passing judgment on them. Learn and love to enjoy them. Not all of us are perfect. I told her, we do not know they might not like us also. Nevertheless, love always begets love, appreciate always begets appreciate and so respect begets respect. Enjoy the whole package. Start enjoying people and we will enjoy life.

I have been using a Net10 phone for about three months now and I can say that I have never had any bad experiences with this carrier. In fact, there was this incident that really made me appreciate Net10 even more, and I just want to share that experience now.
During the spring break, my friend and I were assigned to attend a 3-day educators' convention in Texas. As teachers, it is our duty to undergo trainings as often as we can so Jane and I took that 2-hour plane ride from Detroit to Dallas.
When we arrived at our hotel room, Jane tried to call Jacob, her boyfriend, back in Michigan just to let him know how she was faring so far. I was unpacking my luggage when I heard Jane let out a frustrated groan. Her call just got dropped and when she tried to dial her boyfriend's number again, the automated voice prompt advised that she is calling a number that is out of coverage area. Imagine that!
Seeing the need, I handed Jane my Net10 phone and let her use it so she could call her boyfriend. Well, she was able to call Jacob because what's so good about my Net10 carrier (compared to Jane's carrier) is that it provides nationwide coverage and unlimited talk, text, and data, for $50 a month.
When Jane was done talking to her boyfriend, she started asking about my Net10 carrier and I, as a real NET10 customer, proudly gave her enough reasons why she should switch to Net10 too. You see, with Net10, there are no contracts, no surprise bills, and no credit checks and yet it has great nationwide coverage and excellent reception and connectivity. In addition, Net10 only uses trusted phone manufacturers like LG, Motorola, Kyocera, Nokia and Samsung which you can buy for as low as $15.00 (the smart phones they offer are even available under $60.00). If I need more airtime, I purchase it online, but you can also buy it at a nearby store, or directly from your phone.
And because I wanted Jane to see the Light with Net10, I let her watch a cute NET10 commercial in YouTube and listened to what Rob has to say about Net10 carriers. Visit this link so you can see it for yourself:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TgxxrJoHsMQ ; you can also check them out at Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/NET10Wireless) or Twitter (http://twitter.com/#!/Net10_Wireless), or visit their website directly at http://www.net10.com/.
Before the end of the 3-day convention, Jane had already purchased her own Net10 wireless phone at a nearby Best Buy store, and had spent the evenings talking to her boyfriend. She treated me to lunch as her way of thanking me and, yes, I got Net10 to thank for it. I was glad I chose Net10 over other providers.
