i was just making ayos of heather (our youngest baby) while she is asleep, because she is sliding from her pillow when i heard a loud thump on our cemented floor. i quickly turned around,alarmed by this because i know that i let him walk through our sala. My fears materialized when i saw him lying on the floor hurt and crying, most likely fell… so.i immediately scooped him.in my arms, hugged him and tried to comfort his crying , while blowing some air to his mouth as im afraid he might faint as well because he has a tendency to hold his breath while he cries. i also touched his whole head,feeling if he might have a bukol or what…Thank God he is safe and sound. But still I feel so scared for him that I dont want this to happen to him again that’s why i put him inside his crib even if he wants to ne let out again. I remember something I read before about denying your children about some stuff they want. that may cause them harm instead. A thought occured to me about God, on why sometimes we dont get we want or our prayers are unanswered, it’s becauuse , likewise as our parent, He sees and knows that what we. want might cause harm to us instead than good. If us, mortal human parents that we dont want something bad to happen to our children, what more is our Heavenly Father? He wants what is good for us, even better than what we think for ourselves that’ s why He already directed our path even begore we were born, and all we need to do is to follo His Will for us so that we may lead and live a good and safe life.
My first day on air was last Saturday,May 24, 2014. It was around 12-3 pm. I started the show for the first hour, and my co-dj/partner Almira followed after awhile. We have been training since Tuesday last week May 20. That was the same day that I was given an assignment - to make a short script for the commercial of Enverga University. Wednesday, May 21, the morning after I recorded the script (audio file) so as to check if how long the commercial would be. As it turned out it is 2 minutes. So i went to work, good thing the station manager - our boss Mr. Raymond Gonzales is at the booth. I showed him my script that I wrote on a page of my notebook. Earlier that week Sir Raymond discussed to us that writing scripts for radio are usually short.or concise, especially if it’s for a commercial ansd it’s the disc-jockey who’s the one who’s going to do the voice over (personal note: unless it’s a radio drama script, like what our friend since college and former supervisor at work in my recent job - Elydia Reyes…she is a radio drama a radio drama script writer for DZRH’s Ito ang palad Ko,aired every after lunch…it’s a different case.)
Later on, i also let him hear the recorded audio file of the script i made and in which i did the voice over. Then we went on to practice my script and we recorded our voices. The day after i learned from our boss that it’s my voice that he used for the radio commercial instead. And so before the week ended my first time to air went smoothly and so far it was nice. Dj CrazyRod introduced me to the listeners before his show ended, and atexter-listener even commented on how cool my voice is. I also have Dj Almira as my partner as well during that day , at that time. Thanks to my co-djs our show went smoothly especially on the technical part. Our boss, the station manager - Mr. Gonzales who recorded as well our broadcast praised us for a job well done. At the bottom of my heart, i knew that i am already at the right track when it comes to my career. Like a car on a race that got lost or went off-track, i finally got my swerve back on. Like in a relationship, i finally found the “One ” (this broadcasting career of mine) on which I can finally commit myself. I would like to thank God for connecting me to peoplepeople like Sir Raymond, Tita Riza, our neighbor - Ate Nilda and the pastor in the Chhristian Church that I am recently attending to every Sun. who all helped me get a headstart in my career in the broadcasting-slash-music field. Not only I find a career wherein I’ll stay for good but a home. My dream job is fulfilled because it is inline with my beliefs,values and philosophy in life. I’ll stay here for good.i’ll grow where i am planted. i enjoy working here because it is work that doesnt feel like work but more of as a hobby. work that is play. There is really truth in the aaying that if you have a dream never let it go. and suvh quotes as “dont stop believing” or “someday your dreams will undold right before your eyes”. But most of all, “A man’s heart plans his way but the Lord directs his steps.” and that is true because it is found in the Bible it is in proverbs 16: 9.if our father here on earth has wonderful things plamned for us,what more isour Father in heaven? That is why from since then,lately before i do or say somethong i always pray for it. ask guidance like David in the Holy Bible and most of all put my whole trust , my whole aelf in God’s hands so that He will direct me to fulfill His will, His Wonderful purpose for me in this work.In this life. Im tired of people saying to me in the past “you’re a masscomm graduate, then why are you here? why not in the broadcasting field?” ..when i know that deep inside me i have this hidden potential that hasnt been let out yet and utilized fully to.maximize its potential, so when one day i heard some cool rock songs being played at 103.1 the edge, i decided to try asking if they might have. a job opening for the dj spot, and guess what? i got the job! i pursued this dream and wont let go of it. yes,it may not pay as well as my former jobs,but i dont want to be burnout anymore, i finally found ajob, a creative outlet,wherein i fit and it fits me… that im satisfied everyday. A job wherein I can serve God but not of. man, because our radio station is more of positive music (no to music wih foul lang. or bad themes,we also play Christian songs too-Christian Rock, etc.) but gives out a powerful message (inspirational talks every now and then). Truly,Positive Radio playing on-air. and because of this, God used this, the people who is around me as well , to Trust God fully like what I learned in Church a month ago…God is really Great!
