[1: 1,689 of 10,000] Your Greatest Wealth Is Time

In Article on February 19, 2016 at 4:05 AM

Time

The writers and wise folks realised that TIME is a real wealth. I now describe it as a currency that I didn’t earn but it just is within my grasp. How am I using my greatest wealth?

Carelessly, thoughtlessly, doing what please me without good intentions, without proper awareness that I can appreciate and utilise it with its full glory?

I have this beautiful moment that just passes but right now I am typing this word that I hope molded into a thought that makes sense, that gives inspiration, that has meaning, that satisfies the blogger in me that adores every tapping of letter on my laptop, the flow of words as I see it on my screen, and really again the very essence that the ideas are flowing through me that needed to come out.

I am very happy on how I am spending my time right now. No regrets. No second guessing. A woman who is now not afraid to speak up her mind. A person who still makes mistakes and loving the learning process. I am happy.

[1: 1,587 of 10,000] Luxurious Things

In Article on September 12, 2015 at 10:08 PM

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.

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: 1,218 of 10,000] Dan Humphrey aka Gossip Girl

In Article on November 22, 2013 at 3:30 AM
GOSSIP GIRLLooking at the lives of other people, I wonder if I am doing enough, then I pause. Am I really going to the route of becoming a Dan Humphrey who was desperate to know the inner circle of the rich, famous, influential, envied, and exclusive?
How could hard labour be so hard and get paid so little? Is it really a mindset or a harsh reality of a person thinking so low of himself?
I don’t feel less for not living my own house, I am grateful that I have a home, a roomy 1 bedroom rented apartment in Dubai.
I am crazy for maxing out my credit card but I am treasuring my MacBook Air, a diamond ring on my finger, and a gorgeous pink Mulberry bag that I would work my ass off or to that effect.
I wanted the life of Ivanka Trump and Marc Jacobs were they’re look up to not simply with their wealth, prestige, but their creative juices and  shared to the world through fashion ~ something glamorous and really pretty.
I don’t want to become a Dan Humphrey, I want to become Yor Ryeter who made its way to fortune and fame.
