[1: 2,040 of 10,000] Places As Mentor

In Journal on December 10, 2020 at 4:44 PM

It crossed my mind that places could be a mentor for a person. Like the city which made up of history, people, landscape, and so much more breathe life to a person who’s visiting, who just arrived to settle in, or who’s leaving it.

I recently watched the Netflix documentary Andre & His Olive Tree and he has three mentors: Taiwan, France, and then Singapore. When I reflect on my life, I have Philippines, United Arab Emirates, and I know in my soul that I’m being called to name the next country next year and move in 2022.

Philippines raised me, taught me to be resilient, showed me that brown eyes and black hair are beautiful people, it open my eyes to Christianity, life can be financially challenging when you’re not playing it right, and then in 2008 I left it. I still look back but I don’t have the urge of returning.

For 12 years, I consider United Arab Emirates as my home, a place that allowed me to grow up, experience an adult life that is adventurous even with some challenges I’ve been enjoying easy, it felt like living in a bubble of fantasy that everything looked good and am being cared for, and soon I’ll be saying good bye.

Where to next? I don’t know yet, but it got to be a place that I will no longer hide to what I truly love to do. A place that will allow me to have complete freedom. Probably a remote island with wifi? šŸ˜€

[1: 1,554 of 10,000] My Average Online People

In Article on August 10, 2015 at 4:54 PM

I am hungry for role models. I am very concern that my current average people is one (my sissy whom I love so much) and it’s not enough. In order to achieve self growth I kept myself searching, moving, attentive, and reading a lot. I am happy that I found genuine people who are honest and worth anyone’s time to learn from at any given time – online.


  1. Elizabeth Gilbert is activeĀ onĀ Facebook where I follow her! I once posted on her wall that she gives me a good reason to be excited to be in Facebook since she’s pouring lots of inspirations; she was gracious and replied with “THANK YOU!”. She teaches me about creativity and her passion for writing is infectious. Her insights on life is remarkable too, such a strong woman, human.
  2. Glennon Doyle Melton is active on both Facebook and Instagram where I follow her. She’s a thoughtful mother with great life views too. I am learning motherhood from her, not necessarily for my future children but understanding motherhood and caring for children.
  3. James Altucher is active on LinkedIn, Facebook “Choose Yourself” Group, Podcast, and Quora where I follow him. I am also subscribed to his daily article. He’s extremely generous of his ideas and he’s so human. He speaks about his pain and sharing how to grow better and definitely choosing yourself.
  4. Claudia Azula Altucher, the strong wife of James Altucher, is active onĀ Facebook “Choose Yourself” Group, Podcast, and Quora where I follow her. She’s my favourite inĀ Facebook “Choose Yourself” Group. I am happy and I felt validated when she likes and replies to my post. I always try to not get approval from anyone but with her, it feels safe because I wanted to be like her, independent, confident, grounded, and successful. I see her as my online mom, I don’t know if she would like the sound of that but I am saying this with so much respect and nothing to do with age.
  5. I met someone who is currently undergoing his Michael Singer’s “The Surrender Experiment” and I read his progress every single day on spiritual awakening. He is helping me to be reminded on letting go of attachment about every thing. I am just an expectator of his progress but at the same time the thought of him keeps me in check.
  6. Online Forum such as Quora and created Groups (online community) that speak to my interests in LinkedIn and Facebook are great places to meet peopleĀ that would help me grow not just in knowledge but as a human being. It is so rich of diverse individuals yet worth connecting with.

[1: 1,543 of 10,000] 5 LinkedIn InMail Credits

In Article on July 30, 2015 at 7:54 PM


I am panicking that I have to land to a new career ASAP so for the month of July I decided to take a LinkedIn Premium package that would allow me 5 InMail Credits, meaning I would be able to send a message, not a tweet, to any LinkedIn member of my choice. I could actually compose proper sentences and paragraphs to relay my desire to get hired!

Tomorrow is the last day of the month and so far here are how I have used them –

  1. I sent a message to Simon Sinek asking his brilliant idea about my brainchild business idea. So far he didn’t reply.
  2. I sent a message to a LinkedIn recruiter for an advertised opening. I received an email that I didn’t make it.
  3. I asked my online mentor about the best topic to post in LinkedIn. He didn’t reply so I just proceeded to post one that speaks to my gut and he previously admitted in his articles that he doesn’t usually reply back.
  4. I sent a message to a company owner toĀ get hired today. Still waiting for a feedback.
  5. ?

It may be silly that I used two of my credits not for job opening but trying to pick the brain of two people that might never bother to reply, which is okay, but I am questioning my messages that if I made it interesting and witty enough, I could have gotten a reply. One last credit until tomorrow and I expect so much from myself.

Shall I be a job seeker or a fan?
