Dilemma


n.

  1. A situation that requires a choice between options that are or seem equally unfavorable or mutually exclusive.
  2. Usage Problem. A problem that seems to defy a satisfactory solution.
  3. Logic. An argument that presents two alternatives, each of which has the same consequence.

IN BRIEF: A difficult choice between things that are equally unpleasant.

A dilemma (Greek δί-λημμα "double proposition") is a problem offering at least two solutions or possibilities, of which none are practically acceptable; one in this position has been traditionally described as "being on the horns of a dilemma", neither horn being comfortable; or "being between a rock and a hard place", since both objects or metaphorical choices being rough.

I’m in a state of dilemma. Why is life so complicated? Why can’t we just enjoy life as it is?

It’s so hard to choose, knowing that in the end, one has to sacrifice or give something up. What make things harder are the consequences of choosing one over the other.

Why should we sacrifice something if we knew we were going to be hurt by the mere thought of losing something so valuable? Why should we hurt? Why should we feel pain?

I guess I can never know the answer to these questions…and yet, the fact still remains...sacrifices are a part of life. So is change. I guess we just have to deal with that. Even if it hurts. Move on...Let go...

My In My Womb 3d/4d Ultrasound Experience

Last Saturday, we had our 6th checkup with our OB-Gynecologist. So far, everything's ok. I passed my Glucose Challenge test, but I still need to cut on my sugar intake. We were also able to hear our little one's heartbeat. Next week I will be having my Tetanus Toxoid shot -- scary!!

After the checkup, we proceeded to Makati for our scheduled 3d4d ultrasound at In My Womb. I have heard lots of great reviews about this ultrasound center so we have decided to have our ultrasound there. Their center is located at 2f, The Link Bldg, Ayala Makati. The building is beside Landmark. Before proceeding, we had our lunch first at Ineng's Special BBQ -- great food, terrible customer service!

After eating, we then proceded to the 2nd level. We were greeted by a courteous nurse and I told her that I was scheduled for an ultrasound with Dra. Ramos. I would actually like to have the procedure done by the owner, Dra. Shiela Illescas, since i ha…

Transformation

What do you think of when you hear the word "Transformation"?

For me it means changing and evolving for the better.  But how does it really feel like when one undergoes the transformation process?  

One thing's for sure -- it is not an easy process.  When you undergo a transformation, it means going back to basics.  Unlearning what you know and accepting new ways.  Sometimes transformation can hit you pretty bad that you think it is not necessary.  But in the long run, it is always important to understand the need for such change.  You may not believe and understand it now, but at least try to give it a chance.

Sometimes hearing the word scares me.  Not because I am afraid of what it brings, but because I am too comfortable where I am now and I think any movement will cause me to fall down.  But hey, I have been through tougher times.  And I will surpass this for sure.
