[1: 2,042 of 10,000] A New Narrative

In Poem on December 12, 2020 at 8:00 PM

It’s a beautiful day
Creating my reality
Starting with a dream
Turns novelty

I move
in the beauty
of Ebb and Flow

Magic dancing
Love bursting
Living raw

Feeling powerful
Thriving in life
Darkness and light
Moments I dive

[1: 1,684 of 10,000] Why So Serious?

Why So Serious

Why so serious?

Lighten up and it’s okay if it’s not perfect.

Yes, I am reminding myself and quite proud that I am starting to be softer to my imperfections because I know that I am growing better every single day. Baby steps!

Did you ever join a performance? I was studying in a Chinese school in elementary and we were requested by the town that we would be performing a Chinese dance during one of the festivals. We practised so much to make sure that we’ll be amazing and there was a mishap and yet we’re okay. It’s okay that it’s not always perfect! We actually got away with it, but we knew we screw up a little.

Be intensed, the right amount of intensity.

Tap yourself on the back when you’ve managed to smile and accomplish something today.

Yay life! Yay I live!

[1: 1,612 of 10,000] People In Pain Get Irritated

In Journal on October 7, 2015 at 6:37 AM

Yesterday was a bit of a long day. I was wearing the wrong shoes for checking furnitures (2-inch heels may not be too hight but if you’re looking at the whole showroom and warehouse of IKEA, well you know what I mean), I wasn’t too happy about my slappy outfit, Dubai weather is still briskly hot, and I am anxious about some tasks that I want done smoothly (admittedly, perfectly).

The other day, I got a weird chat message from an acquiantance and it caught me off guard about his real intentions of prying. It is about somebody who I don’t want to dishonor or discredit in any way so I was very careful on what I say. My Monday night was weirdly exhausting emotionally.

On top of the above, my sissy asked for my help for a certain assignment and I was starting to get furious because I am really feeling exhausted; but I tried to pull myself, enjoyed the moment and helped her and still do the things that am supposed to do. I love my sister ever so dearly and I told her I am really sorry but I am annoyed at you right now but a part of me is fighting that I could calm down and help even if my throat is hurting and I just want to do my own thing.

I slept soundly and woke up with a new surge of energy. It is one of those times that when someone is in pain, he needs rest or space or just the time to do what he needed and wanted to do. It’s going to be a wonderful Wednesday! Wednesday used to be my favourite, so today is special and blessed.

Happy Wednesday

[1: 1,456 of 10,000] WHOLE Again

In Article on May 4, 2015 at 2:47 PM

My friend reminded me that I have to be WHOLE again. She knows about my struggle that I am not really in a good place right now. The optimistic in me was quite surprised that I don’t even know what being WHOLE again means.

I asked her do I need to pray a lot? And do good things to others?

She said you’re so silly! No, she didn’t say that, she said…

“All of the above and most of all believe in yourself and always say that you deserve the best because you are one of the best. Do not swim in the pool of sadness. You yourself said that you have moved on so go with the flow. Be the strong person I knew before. Do not be too emotional, because when you start to be emotional again, you begin to fall again. Rise up girl, stand your ground, and always think positive.”

I thought Holy Shit! I know all those things!! And yet, when I am in a dark place, I do forget who I was and what I’m capable to do and withstand. I got a little lost and unless I respect that somebody that puts me into my strong self again, I will die at the corner of the wrong loop of thinking and I forget to turn around and find another way.

How could I forget to define how to be whole? I need affirmation reminder!

Whole Again

[1: 1,344 of 10,000] Best eBook I Have Read

In Review on September 13, 2014 at 11:28 AM

how-life-works-by-andrew-matthewsI am grateful that moment directed me to buy the eBook “How Life Works” by Andrew Matthews. I encourage you to buy the eBook or if you prefer paperback, go ahead too. Disclaimer: I am not a reseller of Andrew Matthews and I also don’t get any commission for recommending him; all I get is the pleasure that I hope this eBook would touch you and show you wonders to have an amazing life from this point onward.

It’s not a magical book but how the world works with us in it is definitely ‘magical’. I am sure you have known a lot of the contents from other materials but what I am grateful that I get it and I love it. I don’t adore everything but there is so much that boozed AHAs. I am a type of person who remember things in an incredibly cray cray way but the way he combined humour, cartoon, spot on statements, cites good life examples, and research made it worked and believable.

Here are some of my favourite thoughts from the eBook –

  • The Universe is an energy system, constantly bringing itself into balance. Every time you have a thought, you shift the balance. The balance restores itself as your thoughts materialise. Whatever you put into the Universe will be reflected back to you.
  • Life unfolds from the inside out. The thoughts in your head become a FEELING in your heart. Good things happen when we are feeling good. We attract what we feel. Excitement makes things happen fast. If it’s exciting, we keep thinking about it, and attract it. Emotion sets your dream in motion. All those things that you have been feeling excited about are still moving toward you. You just need to keep the feeling until you land them in you.
  • Action is thought in motion. Action accelerates results.
  • Relax. Be grateful, forgive people, love more, quit blaming everyone else, quit blaming ourselves and believe things will work out! This is how you become a magnet for everything you want. When you feel calm and protected, you are protected. Meditate because meditation is the ultimate excessive in detachment and feeling good. The trick to the game of life is to feel happy, grateful and detached. Nature doesn’t understand desperation! Nature seeks balance, and you can’t be desperate and balanced.
  • Love is the fabric that holds the Universe together. When you are motivated by LOVE and when you are serving others, you are in harmony with the Universe and your plans unfold with much less effort. People who feel loved believe they deserve to be loved. When you find love, you are in the present. And if you can find the present, you find love.
  • We are each a divine, loving, powerful spirit in a body. When we forget this, life hurts. It is life’s way of getting us back on track. Logic will tell you, “If I accept this rotten moment I will be stuck with it forever!” In fact, the reverse is true. Acceptance allows you to move on. What happens when you accept what IS? Frustration dissolves into fascination. You still have challenges, but they resolve themselves almost effortlessly.
  • Will success make me happy? No. You have to be happy first. You have to like yourself first. Happiness makes you successful.
  • What is my goal? To think like God thinks. To love like God loves. To create like God creates.

Royal YOU

Heard it from Oprah Winfrey’s 2013 Harvard Commencement Speech:

You will find true success and happiness if you have only one goal. There really is only one, and that is this: To fulfill the highest, most truthful expression of yourself as a human being. You want to max out your humanity by using your energy to lift yourself up, your family, and the people around you. Theologian Howard Thurman said it best. He said, “Don’t ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive and go do that, because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”

I currently struggle that I don’t serve enough people in my life and yet the few people that I do serve suffer with my erratic behaviour of being prickly at some point, nice in another time, combinations of confused, stressed, sick, emotional, kind, inspiring, tough, and honest. I am clueless of what truly makes me come alive and doing it for the rest of my life. Right now, I said YES to challenges that I don’t completely understand how to resolve. To make things worst, I am fearful to step forward to get on the work.

I know that the people around believed I am dependable, loveable even with my challenging characteristics, and yet I do not feel alive. It is time that I change my ATTITUDE and put on my optimism and keep accomplishing even if it is painful. I will take chances to trust even if I ‘might’ get hurt. I will believe that I will love and will always be grateful to sprinkle happiness wherever I may be now. I should show up and come alive to carry everyone to better feelings because I may not have the right career but I know how great I am in lifting someone’s spirit.

In Poem on January 19, 2014 at 4:59 PM
It’s beautiful
A symphony that makes the heart smiles
Feeling to conquer any obstacle
Painting everything in rainbows
Oh everyone should live it
Love it
Although it could shy away
When our hearts are empty
We do not recognise it
We ran away from it
We forgot the wonders it brings
We drift
Plant a seed
That holds and grows
Teach me not to forget you
Depart you

[1: 943 of 10,000] Make It Happen

In Poem on February 27, 2013 at 11:59 PM


Make it happen

Even if there is obstacles

Because that would only prove how much you want it


Make it happen

Even if it is too good to be true to enjoy ‘coz it is happening

Unless it is an empire and it multiplies the story doesn’t end


Make it happen

Even if you’ve reached the dead end

There is always another door, another key, another way, tiresome but it exists


Make it happen

Because you are bold, you are strong, and you take only the yes answers

It is never impossible because you my friend is created in the image and likeness of the reigning infinite maker of impossibilities


Make it happen

Not for him, not for her, but for you

Are you still doubting? Stop! Make it happen

[1: 847 of 10,000] Uneasy? Something Good Will Happen

In Journal on November 27, 2012 at 10:08 PM

I love my sissy’s optimistic view. When people usually think something bad will happen when they feel uneasy or nervous, she thinks about the wonderful opposite. She will actually wait for the good thing to happen. Then the universe hears it and it usually does or if nothing great at least nothing bad was invited.

What is scaring you to be optimistic? Get the nerve shaking sign to mean the good thing instead of the crazy negative gut feeling. Command the universe to bend down to your willful good wish and exciting surprise?

When you are blessed and happy enough; share the love to the world. Soon enough, we’ll see that Heaven can start on Earth. Seriously, that is how profound and exaggerated it will be if all the people focuses on good things and wonderful true happiness.

There is a reason for everything, so what is the reason?

When there are things happening that we can’t understand, can’t explain, that sometime even hurt, we say there is a reason, so what is the reason?

The reason can be anything good that we wanted to be. Isn’t that beautiful and magical?

Try it.

Think about the positive things and be joyful because it is the best way to live. Optimistic!
