[1: 1,898 of 10,000] Who You Know Matters

Photo taken during my visit in Stockholm last September (2017) where artist Mattias Norström bent a flag pole in front of Kulturhuset (The House of Culture).

Rules made by men can be bent because human are vulnerable, subjective and flexible. Who you know matters that can help you with just about anything.

I have a prickly habit that following the rules is a must otherwise I fear there would be chaos; and yet winners take courage to bend the rules to make a statement, to grow, or to achieve a dream.

Knowing someone is like winning a Willy Wonka ticket to get in the chocolate factory; but don’t be fooled, it is our talent that keeps us in the desired circle, takes growth to stay relevant, takes perseverance to be wealthy, and finally takes surrender to live in peace.

Fitness First Goal 3

  1. I will never be ashamed to be flabby and sweaty. I am in the gym exactly to shed fats so being embarrassed that I don’t look good is out of the equation.
  2. I listen to my personal trainer. I am a very conscientious person and a rule follower (as much as I can) and so I really take it to heart when he says, “Challenge yourself.” If the weight or intensity of the routine is too easy, I really admit it and request to make it more challenging.
  3. I listen to my body too. I am not physically strong at all times and I couldn’t do all the routines; so if my body is tearing down, like having a mind of its own, like I once fell, then I stop and rest.
  4. Bring a water bottle. I always need to drink between routines as it makes me breathe and relax.
  5. Sleep properly. My body is well rested if I get 7 hours, so I do that.
  6. I show up to my 3-times a week gym schedule on time unless there’s a work travel.
  7. I eat healthier choices. I try to eat more frequently in proper proportion. I have not drink Diet Coke since I started going to gym; there are split moments that I wanted to indulge to drink a bit but stopped myself. Those extra weights make my push up harder!
  8. I love my sore body parts a day after a gym workout knowing they’ve been shaken up.
  9. Invest in proper gym clothes to be comfortable.
  10. Never give up too easily and complete the routine as hard as it may be. Master my weak mind that wanted to give up. I hope one day, I can do the… “Start counting when I want to stop.”
  11. Enjoy every moment and I was even enjoying it more whenever my body produced endorphins.
  12. I do this as a part of my lifestyle now because I wanted to be healthy. Exercise gives me energy to do more productive things. Gretchen Rubin was right to include exercise to have the right kind of energy in her Happiness Project.

[1: 1,532 of 10,000] When To Bend The Rules

Bending The Rules

Do you ever recognise in the movie that there are certain parts where a character bends a rule and it makes you say “awwwww.”

I am obsessed with order, process, system, and law; but the law part really is questionable when it is not trustworthy.

So when should a rule be bent?

  1. When it gets to help a soul.
  2. It’s the right thing to do despite the consequence from a human’s law.
  3. 10 years from now, it will not matter you broke the rule.
  4. 100 years from now, breaking the rule was the only thing that really mattered.

If there are laws that we should always oblige, it is God’s words. He gave us 10 commandments or even summarized into 2 to keep it simple. Love God and love our neighbours as we love ourselves.

It always boils down to doing what is right and if in case we fail, then we get back up, repent, let go, and do it better.

“May the Holy Spirit gives us the wisdom to know if it’s time to break the rule and which rule needs to be broken.”
