[1: 1,886 of 10,000] My Utmost Prayer Right Now

In Prayer on June 27, 2017 at 5:00 PM

Beloved Holy Spirit,

I call on you, humble, on my knees, praying to grant me wisdom.

The wisdom that would allow me to enter a sacred quietness to touch my soul that hears the language of a powerful discernment then I would be able to make the right choices and act on a decision out from a good intention having fierce courage because I wear my fear and resistance.

I need you so I will succeed to be a better reflection of God than I ever was yesterday. I need you so I would be at peace.

Thank you for listening to my plea. Thank you for granting your presence to be with me.

Amen.

[1: 1,879 of 10,000] Learning Failure

In Journal on May 20, 2017 at 11:00 PM

I am avoiding making mistakes; then I forego the notion of daring the unknown. I am afraid that outside my comfort zone is equivalent to I am a failure. Yet the itch of not growing shouts so loud from my core.

I am avoiding disagreement with anyone; then I settle to being silent and not seeing the change of getting the present situation to improve for the better. I am afraid that I will not be heard and that my ideas are but a failure.

Will I stay afraid? I don’t want to not use my freedom to be great. I will entertain failure as my teacher. I will embrace mistakes so I may blossom.

Tonight I will sleep and when I see the sun rises tomorrow when I become awake, it is my sign that I have another chance to live life with courage.

[1: 1,732 of 10,000] Nothing Personal

In Poem on June 24, 2016 at 12:47 AM

Cute Monk

Hush now heart, mind, and soul
It is nothing personal when you are being attacked
Human is scared and protects himself

Love and love even more
Love and love anyway
Despite and amidst the hatred, fight with love

Watch the crippling anger
Pause, let it go, and don’t go back
Don’t let it grow, put it into a halt

Find the centre, the quiet, the peaceful
It exists, in meditation or prayer
Mostly in the act of kindness and forgiveness

Enjoy LIFE
Have courage to be silly, laugh
Do what’s best everyday and learn, that is all that is.

[1: 1,711 of 10,000] I’m Getting More Courageous

In Journal on June 3, 2016 at 12:02 PM

I have been very afraid, unsure of my capabilities, and neglected loving first myself. It was an exercise that I have to make sure I learn, to be more courageous, to trust myself, and love me like no other human has ever did (and really now most love for me should come from me).

Still admiring the beautiful Bali beach, before I finally pack, and head back home to Dubai. The water has its own life, it sings and dances, and it doesn’t care about the human but human get flexible for its strength, beauty, and fickle emotions.

May I be like the sea for its glorious vastness of beauty, it is true to itself without a care in the world, but we human as the assigned caretaker need to ensure that it is safe because just for its very existence, it can gives us an energy beyond words, it soothes our souls for its authenticity.

[1: 1,516 of 10,000] The Jokes On Me

Hop

I feel overwhelmed with my current idea. I am losing grip on its goodness that I believe. Why is doubt lurking in? Although I have to entertain it so I can seriously address before the investor meeting tomorrow.

I am afraid.

  • Afraid that I am not able to handle the start-up.
  • Afraid that it is too shallow.
  • Afraid that it doesn’t help people.
  • Afraid of my haters.

On the otherhand, what if it works?

  • People will have a role model.
  • We have a new way of assessing what’s valuable in our life.
  • Any change needs organic growth.
  • Gain new respect and following that truly matters.

I have to take this shot, I am grateful for the opportunity that I will be heard, to share my idea. Isn’t that something and I have to silence my imaginary critique that unless it is constructive, it might as well shut up and let me work!

It would be kind to wish for your success

It would be courageous to be your friend

It would be courageous to be your support

It would be courageous to build trust

It would be courageous to truly love you

[1: 1,454 of 10,000] Don’t Let It Bother You

In Article on May 2, 2015 at 11:28 AM

I have a voice inside me that knows exactly what extreme means. It creates drama to extremity, putting both of us down or blowing both of us up! Reflection The day transforms with circumstances that are mostly beyond my control. My attitude towards it is what I can 100% control. The little voice inside me made a loud voice, begging me to react crazy. I told the voice, do you want us to go down this way?

Yes, it is going to be easy to be a victim or to be arrogant, either ways, we can play the part and make us both looked like a loser or an asshole. Do you really want us to go to that road? Or you be silent and we regroup our thoughts, keep our hearts whole, and do the right thing and be a decent person. Like a little child, it wants to reason more, it wants me to be fuming mad, and it knows that if I let it win, I will have all the mixed emotions and we get caved into a dark space, it feeds on self-pity or empty boastfulness; and I know that we are better than that.

Whenever I said, “ssshhhhh” with conviction and draw my focus on what’s right, it folds like a helpless baby. I am the bigger self and I know that the tiny voice in me is scared of the unknown, and I got to comfort it that we can do this. I thank it for the minor silly warning to make inside me alive with dreams party but we both know that’s not how we achieve great things that change the world, we need to have courage to take steps, or we end up just dreaming.

[1: 1,435 of 10,000] Cinderella (2015) 2 Overemphasised Life Lessons

In Review on April 13, 2015 at 1:40 PM

Cinderella Movie Ticket I watched Cinderella last Friday. I was initially hesitant to see it because it’s a Disney movie, it always have the same plot, happy family, parents died, evil stepmother and stepsisters were mean, Cinderella met the Prince Charming and they’ve lived happily ever after, of course with climax of the famous royal ball. The truth is there wasn’t a good seat for Furious 7 so I finally give in to Cinderella because deep within me, the child and the romantic in me, was still curious to see the 2015 version.

The movie house was packed, with kids and adults. It kept me wondering why would adult men, no sister or little girls with them, go see the movie? These are my crazy questionable hunch: Was it because of Cinderella’s cleavage or simply the beauty of Lily James (probably a fan of Downton Abbey)? Were they gay or just in touch with their feminine side? Were they like me who couldn’t get a better seat for Furious 7? Were they part of the open minded men who were there to watch a fairytale taking it for its artistry or cinematic soul and let’s face it, the visual effects were amazing?! Or were they simply curious of who this Cinderella is or it wouldn’t hurt to find out how a Charming Prince acts?

The movie was amazing and it was fun hearing the children gasp and clap for the magical parts. I love the acting and it may be a short scene for Helena Bonham Carter a.k.a. The Fairy Godmother but she made it worked with her charm and humour! Cate Blanchett nailed the bad stepmother, a fashionable bitch with red lipstick. I am not sure if the kids grasp it but the story actually dealt with real human emotions and pains, the lines delivered in the scenes: father & daughter, stepdaughter & stepmother, and most especially the close to truth sentiments of Ella when her father passed away and her new family abused her by treating her as maid when in fact she has better claim of that house.

I love the 2 important life lessons in the movie, if you’ve seen the movie, it may be a little annoying that they have repeated it excessively, (1) have courage, and (2) be kind. Was it the movie’s aim to brainwash kids to remember those nice life lessons as soon as they leave the cinema? It is indeed a great reminder and a beautiful lessons to live by.

For cutesy sake, go watch it! The Ever After (1998) by Drew Barrymore was much more fierce and funny but the magic of true love (chemistry is believable between Ella and The Prince), their full-lenght dance at the ball, and the magical transformation of the pumpkin, her dress, and the sparkling glass slipper, were worth seeing and supported!

[1: 1,420 of 10,000] My 8 Secrets For Courageously Hitting Publish In WordPress

In Article on March 21, 2015 at 4:38 AM

Publish Button

I am not a famous writer or blogger yet but I must say that I feel good having published 1,420 posts including this one. I have a lot of irrational fears but thankfully I never have fear of publishing blog posts. Here are my 8 secrets!

  1. I love blogging and in a narcissistic way, I love rereading what I have written and the best way to go back on them is publish them!
  2. Sometimes I do think about inspiring or informing other people of my posts and I couldn’t do that if it’s not published isn’t it.
  3. My main reason for blogging is to express myself. I am not afraid that I will be criticise because I already know that I am my biggest critique. Although, if I get good and bad feedbacks… good boosts my confidence and feeds my ego; while bad hopefully constructive will be a room for improvement or hence I make sure every comments are scrutinise with my approval!
  4. I wish to be discovered that I am making sense and my thoughts are valued.
  5. I may have procrastination problem that I am working on but once I am switched onto something I am passionate about, I become obsessed! I sometime couldn’t stop myself to create one post to another and it is bringing me pure joy and a perfect kind of high.
  6. Having a goal to publish 10,000 posts is quite motivating and starting my blog post with the counter keep me on track of my goal and progress.
  7. I don’t pressure myself for perfections, there were lots of posts that I go back for editing, and there are some posts that aren’t perfect in my heart but I know I just have to let it go and publish it. I don’t write to please anyone, I write for the love of honouring the art of writing and respect for my desire that I just have to write whether it will be read by anyone at all or will be loved by anyone but me.
  8. The more I write, the better I become, so I keep imagining whenever I hit the publish button, I am a very important writer with a job to be better than I was yesterday.

Published blog posts do looked like an act of a brave blogger, well at least according to me. 😉

Dear God,

I have always thought people will take advantage of my kindness. I have feared that men would misunderstood my sweet demeanour so I’ve build a thick and high boundary. I don’t like to be associated with anybody who will not contribute to the betterment of my being. I snob and acting snotty to negative people who cross my every waking day. I have mirrored people to get back at them especially if it’s negative.

Forgive me.

With you holding my hand, I shall trust without judgment. I shall understand with compassion. I shall listen to your voice speaking to my soul that I do not need to expect and only see the ill-fitted. I shall believe for the love and goodness you have instilled in our hearts because you created us out of your LOVE. I shall be gracious and kind to men who just wanted to be in my world, to listen to my thoughts, and be blessed and glorious of receiving my time.

I am not afraid anymore to share myself to honour you. You have filled me with so much greatness that I shall not contain it for the very few. May these words that you have allowed me to create goes a long way to kindle our spirits with hope and faith… all these only for your glory.

I love you.

With deepest gratitude that I could smile, your daughter,

Yor
