[1: 1,985 of 10,000] Hard Is Temporary

My favourite stories of hardship are the ones that end with beauty:

A diamond stone starts at the extraction from the ground, removal of excess rock, cleaving, sawing, bruiting/cutting, and polishing before it becomes one expensive jewellery.

A butterfly’s evolution started from being an egg, a larva, a pupa until it turns into a beautiful butterfly with magnificent wings.

Both stories looked so different from where they started because anything beautiful takes time. A seed needs time to grow. Patience is necessary to wait for the fruit. Hard is temporary.

I couldn’t stress enough that I have to remind myself that if I really want something glorious then I have to give my best, work for it, let go of my egoistic expectations, and then wait for the magic to unfold.

[1: 1,958 of 10,000] Patience Vs. Instant Gratification

In Journal on November 30, 2018 at 10:51 AM

I remember when I was a teenager, I thought life is so hard that I am willing to die and make a deal with the devil to make sure I feel better. I try to recollect what were my disappointments before and what pops up is I don’t feel pretty enough and I am not smart enough to be on top of our class.

Now that I’ve experienced the peace when I am truly connected to God, I wondered why would I ever believe the devil will be able to provide what I seemed to feel that I am missing in my life… and it daunts on me that my humanity is looking for instant gratification.

I am beginning to appreciate the advantage of PATIENCE because it is one of the perfect qualities of God. Do not worry about the past and the future but I am to do my best right now. It takes seasons for a flower to bloom and flourish. What I am now is because I’ve endured different experiences and if I was bold enough to learn then I am stronger today.

Being bad and rebelious is not about leaning to the wrong side, if I silent my human weaknesses and lean on the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, my burdens are light and my day is meaningful. I have to practice that muscle and never again will I give in to complacency and rush of getting material accolade instantly. I will enjoy the process, the journey, and celebrate the fruition that culminates an end… and then be brave to begin again.

[1: 1,899 of 10,000] Listen But Don’t Always Believe

Talking Mind

Is your mind kept giving talks? Listen but don’t always believe.

I like to believe though that our mind is really not capable to grasp our willpower that we can do more… like 40% more than what our mind originally believed.

I hear my personal trainers in the gym said that you can do more, challenge yourself more, the limitation is all in the mind, but the body can surely exert more effort. Maybe except the time when my mind was so determined I could do the stepping on a box, but my knee got a mind of its own that I fell down. I laugh myself big time, it was really hilarious, but I know that I just have to strengthen my muscles and be patient. Take good night sleeps and eat right.

Success takes time and it is something worth learning at this time where everything is demanded to be instant.
