[1: 1,888 of 10,000] What My 37 Year Old Self Is Still Learning

In List on July 4, 2017 at 12:01 PM
  1. I do the work and the worry will dissipate.
  2. Do not stop until I finish the task to avoid procrastination. To have the discipline to focus on one task at a time because although multi-tasking can be done, I couldn’t depend on it resulting to a quality work.
  3. Mastery takes time; it takes repetition and doing it better than the last time, showing up, be creative to mix a new ingredient, and keep the burning passion alive.
  4. Who are you trying to please? Work that God is cheering on me, the God who loves me unconditionally and directs me to my best with my willingness. Listen to constructive criticism and forgive the wrong critiques.
  5. Make mistakes, laugh at them, be accountable, and learn not to repeat them. Don’t be too hard on myself because if tomorrow I wake up, it is for a reason.
  6. It’s not because it has always been done means it’s the right way. Life continues to evolve to a new height. I don’t need to expect myself to be married and have kids now; but I do need to work on building a business empire with my sisters.
  7. I know what makes me happy, gives me excitement, and joy. They are clues to MY path. I should do them more often even if it scares me, even if there’s a revolt going on inside of me, and make a mastery out of it. I must do this for me and the world will appreciate it that I did it with love.
  8. What breaks my heart points me to what I want this world to heal from. Put seeds in those areas and let it grow.
  9. Live a life with integrity. Honor my words and commitment. Show up to new things even if I am scared. Be the change I want to see. Leave this world better than I found it.
  10. Meaningful relationship will enrich my life and I have to make an effort to build them.
  11. Teach people how I want to be treated like setting the boundary and say yes if it’s a yes.
  12. Don’t judge people in cluster, judge based on personal contact. Don’t put the label before I have given myself a chance to know the person.
  13. I need to slow down, sleep well, eat right, exercise, and keep learning new things through books, podcast, videos, and going out there to live a life. I pray to talk to God to send my thoughts but it is through my quietness and meditation that He sends His.
  14. Simplify and stop buying stuffs that either get thrown or not used. Learn to be a minimalist.
  15. Of all my confusion and clutter, I withdraw them and surrender to the moment that I find peace and I am contented that I have one thing to be grateful for.

[1: 1,886 of 10,000] My Utmost Prayer Right Now

In Prayer on June 27, 2017 at 5:00 PM

Beloved Holy Spirit,

I call on you, humble, on my knees, praying to grant me wisdom.

The wisdom that would allow me to enter a sacred quietness to touch my soul that hears the language of a powerful discernment then I would be able to make the right choices and act on a decision out from a good intention having fierce courage because I wear my fear and resistance.

I need you so I will succeed to be a better reflection of God than I ever was yesterday. I need you so I would be at peace.

Thank you for listening to my plea. Thank you for granting your presence to be with me.

Amen.

 

 

[1: 1,555 of 10,000] Irony At Its Best

Irony

In every situation, I can find a suitable quote. It is even funny that one positive quote will have an opposite quote that completely defy one another but both on its own are leaning to a positive wisdom, like the one below:

“Absence make the heart grow fonder.”

“Out of sight, out of mind.”

So what’s going on here? Is the above quote the truest wisdom or is it the one below? Are they both correct?

This goes to show that we can decide which wisdom to follow. We hold the decision for our next move. We are capable of choosing. This is what we’ve called the silver lining. Picking the good lesson to give us the will to keep moving foward positively.

What’s your favourite irony?

[1: 733 of 10,000] Blaise Pascal Knows Editing Is A Work

In Article on August 24, 2012 at 5:41 PM

“I have made this letter longer, because I have not had the time to make it shorter.”
-Blaise Pascal

I kept seeing Blaise‘s quote today after publishing a blog post here in WordPress. Writers will understand what he meant by that statement. It is easier to keep on writing because even if we don’t want to speak our brain continues to work as it has so much to say.

One of my English professors in college asked us to write anything on a long pad paper for a duration of 10 minutes. I filled the paper with any thoughts that come to my mind. I have so much to say. But when we want to really matter and Jack Dorsey, founder of Twitter, knew it – that Editing, keeping it tight and precise is the key not only to easily get the message across but making things less complicated.

When your wife asked you “can we go to Mexico for vacation?” and you knew she was just trying to get your attention because you are working too hard and you’re allergic of anything Mexican. Instead of getting hurt why she didn’t remember you didn’t like anything Mexican (I certainly don’t know why but I fancy saying it) and that it’s a waste of money to travel – just briefly say:

“I love you and I am sorry I failed to spend precious time with you. How about Greece instead?”

Brevity with the right words are definitely more effective.
