[1: 1,670 of 10,000] I Am Changing

In Journal on December 12, 2015 at 7:55 AM

I am changing, for the better?, well I hope so.

I know that I am slowly changing that the thing I care about before doesn’t even come close to my priorities right now.

I could see the inflated ego of the people around me and this time around I don’t fight them but on the other hand, I still have that habit of thinking to run away. I could not run away forever whenever I feel like I am not in the right circle of people that builds me up, I need to go deeper and tap into my calmness so the people around me get influenced by my steady demeanor instead of instantly reacting into a fight mode.

I know that I am also a contributor of this negative circumstances because of my negative thoughts the previous days. I was reaping my fears and I should really do an internal clean up before it is too late that there are more to sort out.

I don’t really understand how am I going to live my life. I am still at the edge of adventure but it’s not comfortable, I feel lost, and I am scared. I have been living my life alone and now all I can confide with are my books, my journal, and my solitude prayers.

Is it time for therapy? Or just time to face my fears and do the work? It’s always been the latter.

[1: 652 of 10,000] Took Me 2 Years 8 Months 2 Days To Finish This Book

In Review on June 9, 2012 at 10:41 PM

I finally finished Barack Obama’s “Dreams From My Father” autobiography today after 2 years 8 months and 2 days since I purchased and started reading it exactly on March 4, 2010. That’s the longest time that took me to finish a book that I intentionally purchased and decided to finish. I do have books I’ve totally abandoned.

What took me that long? I’ve been preoccupied about much important things and can’t spare a lot of time to sit down and read it.

As much as I can I read some pages. I have to admit that I am curious to know Barack’s past and thoughts. There were few slow pages that made me pause longer. It was filled with ideal words, truths about life’s painful reality, and ended with a nice story that begins a whole new history.

It is inspiring and reminded me of the TV series Jack & Bobby; imagine this man who has experienced so much questions and quite a lot of turns has soon became the first American-African US President eventually. It’s a great read.
