[1: 1,610 of 10,000] New Challenge: More Money

In Article on October 5, 2015 at 6:20 AM

Money

So far there are four things that I know on how can I grow more money in my life:

  1. Help or serve other people.
  2. Give it away for charity.
  3. Educate myself especially in building my passive income streams.
  4. Have a grateful attitude on what I have.

I got to do all of the above but it is quite challenging but if I put my mind and energy into it I can do it.

I wanted to have the finer things in life, not to boast (but every once in while it rises up), but because they are of good quality and gives comfort, for instance –

Keeping a great car like Mini Cooper means paying hefty amount if it breaks down. I am not sorry for still keeping it because it has a powerful engine, a big fuel tank that I don’t have to refill gas every other day like the Figo, it makes me feel safe for its strong metal body, and UAE road drivers are kinder to a cute mini cooper.

My sister and I need our own apartment instead of sharing it with other flat mates. We have more freedom to be bra less when at home, fart anytime (not that it happens a lot *turning red right now*), watch any show that we like on TV or computer, cook any food, and sleep anytime. Keeping an apartment by ourselves gets quite a chunk from our monthly pay.

There are things that I enjoy that require me to give out some cash. I also enjoy buying from others because it feels like appreciating the business ingenuity of people and paying them for their service. A win win relationship.

Ooh la la I got to work work on ways to have more dineros or in UAE dirhams. 😀

[1: 1,587 of 10,000] Luxurious Things

Hermes

Expensive things have always been a status symbol. It could make somebody feel more valued, stand more confident, and sadly sometimes encouraged people to swag with arrogance.

I have to admit that I do crave for expensive things but now if I know that I would feel a little inch taller because of a thing, I cringe and question my true confidence and beauty. A thing shouldn’t be the source of a wrongful pride or taking position in society for wrongful power.

I would like to be known as “the woman who changed the world for the better” and not she’s “the woman who carries a Hermes bag and oh she changed the world.” We have to admit that luxurious things are indeed overpriced but they are of really good quality, delicate craftmanship, and could stand the test of time. I really like how carefully it was crafted or manufactured with utmost care.

When I can really afford it, I’ll get luxurious items but if I couldn’t then I am happy to have a humble purse that carries my daily necessities. I’m at peace with that.

[1: 1,558 of 10,000] The Law of Divine Compensation By Marianne Williamson

In Review on August 14, 2015 at 11:59 PM

Law-of-Divine-Compensation

The best way to finish a book is when you have about 5 hours to spare at the bookstore and read for free. I am grateful that The Dubai Mall has Kinokuniya, which is my favourite place to read. For this post, I’ve also listened to the interview done by The Moore Show wherein the book was discussed.

My favourite take-away from the book may be summed up with the following beautiful quotes –

  1. Spiritual growth involves giving up the stories of your past so the universe can write a new one.
  2. Nothing binds you except your thoughts; nothing limits you except your fear; and nothing controls you except your beliefs.
  3. There are four rules for miraculous work creation: Be positive. Send love. Have fun. Kick ass. A miracle is a shift in perception from fear to love—from a belief in what is not real, to faith in that which is. That shift in perception changes everything.
  4. Each of us has a unique part to play in the healing of the world.
  5. You are loved, and your purpose is to love.
  6. To whatever extent your mind is aligned with love, you will receive divine compensation for any lack in your material existence. From spiritual substance will come material manifestation. This is not just a theory; it is a fact. It is a law by which the universe operates. I call it the Law of Divine Compensation.
  7. From a mind filled with infinite love comes the power to create infinite possibilities. We have the power to think in ways that reflect and attract all the love in the world. Such thinking is called enlightenment. Enlightenment is not a process we work toward, but a choice available to us in any instant.
  8. Love makes us wake up in the morning with a sense of purpose and a flow of creative ideas. Love floods our nervous system with positive energy, making us far more attractive to prospective employers, clients, and creative partners. Love fills us with powerful charisma, enabling us to produce new ideas and new projects, even within circumstances that seem to be limited. Love leads us to atone for our errors and clean up the mess when we’ve made mistakes. Love leads us to act with impeccability, integrity, and excellence. Love leads us to serve, to forgive, and to hope. Those things are the opposite of a poverty consciousness; they’re the stuff of spiritual wealth creation.
  9. We lack faith in *what* exists within us because we lack faith in *Who* exists within us.
  10. God has given you your identity, and that cannot be taken away. God has imbued you with infinite potential, and that cannot be taken away. God has provided you with the opportunity to change your thinking in an instant, and that cannot be taken away. God has given you the capacity to love, and that cannot be taken away. God has entrusted you with the power to live in the light of His abundance in any moment, and that cannot be taken away.

Selected quotes were taken from GoodReads.com.

It is beautiful to live in the world when we know we are highly involved in being part of the abundant miracles available to us. It takes having faith of God’s love, our capacity to love and be of service, exercise a positive attitude, and being able to have fun and kick ass.

[1: 1,545 of 10,000] GOD Is Not A Second Late

Jesus

I was scared if I would not be able to pay my bills on time. My emergency fund just depleted and the new career is just around the corner. I have always been a very responsible person that running away from my responsibility isn’t my thing. Although lately, I was drained on how will I make my payments on time! It is so crazy I have asked almost everyone I know and every body is tied up.

My usual daily routine was abadoned because of finding solution to my problem. Even a wonderful good news was not giving me pleasure unless it was going to solve my bills. It was really a crucial challenge for me to relax for something I cannot really solve unless I ask my younger sisters again. I was avoiding that at all costs because I don’t want to burden them but at the end of the day, my family was my saviour.

I prayed before I slept and told GOD that I trust you and I know that you are not a second late. I know that it was my fault that I was in this position and I know I am learning that I will never want to be in this position again. I was so tired that I just went to bed at 10ish, which is the earliest and surprisingly I dozed off quickly.

I am grateful that I have a home. I am grateful that I can blog. I am grateful that I have a family. I am grateful that I have friends. I am grateful that I know people. I am grateful for my sensitivity. I am grateful for the sunrise and sunset. I am grateful for my health. I am grateful that I can laugh. I am grateful that I am learning for the better everyday. I am grateful most of all that I am loved unconditionally by GOD and He hears me. Thank you Jesus!

[1: 1,493 of 10,000] Fancy Expensive Things?

Expensive

I saw the above photo from Instagram yesterday and it got me pondering how much do we want to have the nicest brands in the world. I absolutely have nothing against great brands, most especially the expensive ones, the place where it gets tricky is what is the level of adoration, acquisition, and intention –

  1. I love it and I can afford it so I might as well get myself these things. This is the best feeling and circumstance. If you appreciate the brand, which most of the times, they are truly impeccably made and so it turns out to be sturdier, it lasts. Another component is you can afford it so it will not put you in financial dilemma to enjoy a thing.
  2. Do I need it? If you answer YES in a heartbeat then reassess if it’s just a craving that won’t be practical in the long run but if you thoughtfully know what are you using it for then it’s definitely worth buying.
  3. What is your intention to buy such an expensive brand? If it is to elevate the ego’s status or to represent something that is isn’t, there is a questionable reason. I am not stirring a moral issue, it’s just that it doesn’t feel right that you are buying a nice watch for instance so people around you would see you as better than them and must be envied, could keep up with the Joneses, and then you walk with arrogance. If these are the answers to an intention, the source of confidence is coming from the wrong mindset. Sample of a good intention is you got to get it because you are inspired with the craftsmanship that would allow you to create a similar value and quality in your own arena.
  4. Just keep dreaming. Put the intention out there and the universe will give it to me. Becoming rich is never the right goal, but becoming fulfilled and serving masses that allows you to have the freedom to purchase anything you want, now that’s rich. And then, buying expensive things becomes a reward that you’ve arrived and achieved abundance that you go in a store, you choose what serves your need and satisfies your taste, and have it wrapped up without the fuzz on the price.
  5. If you can’t afford, don’t commit anything wrong to get it. Trapped to charge to your credit card that gets you no where but unnecessary debts, or tempted to steal just to have it. It is not worth committing a crime to own the expensive things.

NOW, to end it, it’s a THING. A thing must serve a purpose but it should never be a means for identification of one self. You are already precious, you with your core that is made out of love, is magnificent, and no bling with all the wrong reasons could magnify that awesomeness that you already are.

[1: 727 of 10,000] I Hate Being Broke

In Journal on August 20, 2012 at 8:28 PM

I hate being broke! My wallet is not completely empty but I can tell you how much my ATM Debit Card has – no wait, I won’t tell because it’s pathetic. And yet I get by.

I know that I am out of cash flow but I got all the necessary covered. I am so glad I am in a nice apartment thinking I am in a hotel on a holiday. Speaking of holiday, Ramadan is over and the 4-day off ends today. Everything will be back to normal office timings and I’d be working about 9 hours for 26 days a month.

I am seriously thinking of another means of getting extra bucks but I am not being creative enough. It’s kind of lame but I am letting life get by. To make myself feel better and since the year is fast approaching its end, I would make sure to set a few goals to seriously achieve, it’s not going to be easy but it will keep me occupied and feel better about myself and my gift. Oh help me God.

I love convenience like buying frozen foods, ordering from the restaurant and have it delivered on your home’s door step, or have it in bottled and ready to drink. The problems with convenience sometimes are health related issues. Read the rest of this entry »

[1: 447 of 10,000] What will I call my own currency?

In Journal on November 21, 2011 at 12:20 AM

If I’m going to have my own currency, I will name it “Yoer” and it will be magical because anyone who owns it will never be poor financially and in spirit.
