[1: 1,800 of 10,000] I Am Blessed With The Best Childhood Neighbor

I am the eldest amongst my sisters, so I think the vulnerable and precious child in me was quite excited when I found out we’re having a new neighbor and I could actually end up having a grown up sister. She was kind, patient, and the purest soul who gave perfect answers to my inquisitive young mind.

This beautiful person was used by the divine to deliver a message, a hint and direction of what I should I be serving the world. She planted a very strong and healthy seed that inspired me to write. She said, “If you want your dream to come true, write about it,” that advice never went away. I daydream so much that wishfully magically my dreams will all come true. Then my motivation evolved in my teens that I will write to entertain and tell the original stories that are blazing in my mind. Today, I write like it is part to keep my soul, my very essence to be breathing… with a purpose that is nothing less than showing and living my purest reply to love.

After more than 2 decades, I found early this week that she’s vacationing in Dubai for a few days. I was ecstatic to meet my favorite neighbor in my childhood… actually one of the treasures in my lifetime who I will forever thank God for. I truly consider her as a very precious and important person that not anyone will have the privilege to meet. It is truly an honor to call her my eldest sister. So despite my tight schedules, I really have to make it happen that I have dinner with her.

At dinner, I asked her with my adult stature but with the same enthusiasm as my young self, “You were also young then, so where did you learn about to make my dreams come true, I have to write about it?” Her answer blew me away, she said, “We were kids, for every questions that you throw at me, I tried to come up with an intelligent answer.” Was it the work of the Holy Spirit who gave those words to her lips and my truly present consciousness was able to believe, accept, and understood the message?

Life is truly perfect, may you treasure your version of best childhood neighbor and may all children have their childhood neighbor that lead them to the right path.

I’ve asked myself, if there’s one thing that makes you feel very alive what would it be? If I am being really honest, the answer is writing. It has been proven in the past that when I stop writing, something in me dies.

To keep my spirit all lit up, I have to write. Whatever the world  throws at me, I will explode for a while, but I could always go back to my serene and peaceful writing self.

It is true, if I don’t write, I will not expect my muse to stay and inspire me. If I build my discipline and get on with it, I recognize a divine portal opens up that translates my work into words, then string of thoughts that will eventually become a coherent message.

I have written so many and when I throw them there is no regrets or holding on because I know I can write new ones again.

Are my works just for me? Sometimes it is but I do long sincerely that my writing touches another human being and in that way I am a mere messenger who serves a purpose as a gift for someone and yet in fact, I was simply being alive.

Nobody Cares

I am super busy that anyone who gets my attention is really important. I am enjoying my new work, the challenge, and the growing dedication. I wanted to make a difference and I am hoping to really rock it.

Although, no matter how busy I am, I do devote time to blog everyday, sleep everyday, eat well as much as I can, and pray. These are things that I love and I need so it will always have a room in my day. Praying makes me feel grounded and more courageous that I can tackle anything because I have a glorious help. Blogging makes me feel like I do have a life outside of work, something I can be proud of and umph my groove. I need to sleep and eat because it will keep me alive.

I am looking forward to weekend and sleep long hours. I hope it is not the same as last Friday where the agenda for the day is sleep. 😀

[1: 1,413 of 10,000] Careful When Citing Example

In Article on March 15, 2015 at 10:04 AM

One’s writing requires integrity. In these days of Internet where people find it fun to quote someone’s story is quite easy, some writers even commit the mistake of putting unsuspecting fraud in their book, like for instance Lance Armstrong.

Lance Armstrong

He proved in action that he was a champion for 7 consecutive times in a cycling competition, which we later find out that he was using drugs to actually make that happen. We believed he is capable, with the additional sensational story that he was battling an illness. It is quite disappointing to cite supposedly great people to inspire us all that we can do the impossible; I remember one book that I adore that cited Lance as an example and for a bit to me the author loses its credibility. It is difficult to know for sure that people are who we perceived to be. Heck even our own perceptions change depending on own current circumstance! So what do we do? We just need to be forgiving. We all make mistakes and only through making a lot of mistakes (hopefully not the same holes over and over) that give us the insights and right instincts.

What do we come up with the Armstrong story? Yes we couldn’t forget that he was doping and lying but someday, someone really great, an honest to goodness cyclist could prove that winning Le Tour de France for even more than 7 consecutive times is possible – maybe soon! Or we could believe in ourselves that we don’t always need other people to strive harder for greatness, we just need to believe in ourselves, we are a miracle individually, imagine a tiny sperm and egg cells united and boom you are developed into a beautiful human being, that should be a great basis for greatness and what we do everyday should be a testament to honouring our way to greatness. I’m saying way because unless we live to serve with true love, then reexamine why do you exist at all.

There are two words that I am currently drawn to for such inspiration and they are:

  1. Joan RiversUnapologetic inspired by Joan Rivers. Everyone who remembers her used this because she delivers truth without hesitation but with such conviction and with a lot of fun. The reality I have discovered is that she wasn’t really dropping all those funny lines out of being funny and mean but she actually thought of it and rehearsed it. She was a professional who bring comedic entertainment in another level – unapologetic to say what everyone else is thinking or most of us are too embarrassed to say out loud. Such a classy lady who left during her A game but never a regret. It is hard to lose somebody we love but the great memories are enough to keep moving forward.
  2. Trailblazer which is used for artist like James Brown who lit up the stage and invites all feet to groove in the dance floor. He sang “I Feel Good” and we got to admit that we sing this when we feel good. He is known as the Godfather of Soul and I am amazed that he does deserved to be called a trailblazer. He showed an amazing path of greatness for musicians to live up to.

What is the current word that gives you an elevated delight?

In Article on October 7, 2013 at 12:00 AM

Relentlessly Awesome ShirtI am claiming myself. I can’t believe that I am starting to forget who am I and the things that I am personally passionate about. I am hoping that working harder to blog would remind me of what I truly care about.

I am blogging endlessly to meet my personal commitment of a daily post. I still have to complete 13 blog posts including this. I wish my body doesn’t need sleep and require energy to keep thinking and moving. I hope that I would not always choose work over my personal love.

I can’t explain it but as I try to keep up with the up-to-date posting, I am starting to regain my passion on writing. I am sacrificing a lazy sleep and irrelevant day dreaming to hopefully be productive to come up and share meaningful ideas to the world. I should write more daringly to really make it count too!

[1: 1,156 of 10,000] Famous Blogger

In Article on September 25, 2013 at 12:00 AM

TypingAnyone who is serious about blogging would definitely dream of being famous, but does it end with being famous? I hope it starts with love and ends with a purpose to move people.

I wanted to become famous, but my only dilemma right now (which is quite crucial) is the fact that I have no clue on what truly drives me anymore except for one, that is falling in love with a man I can’t have and doesn’t want to have, and yet he clouds my mind and froze me to oblivion. I am madly in love with him, I can’t believe “madly in love” really exists until now.

To my comfort though, I know that life has always taught me to be in an uncomfortable position to teach me an experience that I may use on my writing or give it as an advice to someone that needs it. The current life experience is pushing me to write a tragedy novel (as a matter of fact!), because I know that loving an unavailable charming man is both sinful and short lived. It seems exciting to daydream about it but when I return to reality I get my heart broken over and over.

So being famous may need to be parked somewhere but I could taste it or is it the Krispy Kreme Doughnut beside me that is making me an emotional eater due to unrequited love…

[1: 1,149 of 10,000] Poor Blog Writing

In Article on September 18, 2013 at 12:00 AM

I am slacking for how many days now. I can’t believe that I am missing so many blog posts!!!

The procrastinator in me has a ridiculous valid excuse, I am losing the deepest reason to write but the saddest part is losing the struggling reason to live. I am becoming so complacent with my life that I don’t find the slightest desire to strive to be my best. Is this a phase for a 33 year old? Am I too stubborn to appreciate the wonderful blessings surrounding me? Or this is still a grueling reality of a medication’s side effect?

My love tank is still empty and I cannot wait for people to fill it; I got to fill it myself. I have to entertain focus and challenge the impossible. I have to continue to search how to make my life wonderful with excitement and desire. It’s not easy but I believe with all my heart that it is possible.

Since I am way behind with my writing, I can’t really swallow to carelessly write poorly. I started this blog not because I wanted to nonchalantly finish 10,000 blog posts of so many batches that I can do, but to be a great writer. I’ve dreamed to write a book where every line is an aphorism, a quotable quote, if I’ve achieve that, I know it paid being diligent.

God of wisdom, enlighten me.

[1: 1,000 of 10,000] And Then There Goes My First 1,000 Blog Post Completed

In Article on April 24, 2013 at 12:00 AM

1000th

I started this blog on November 29th, 2010 and today I just reached my 1,000th blog post! I am pretty excited because 9,000 more doesn’t seem so hard to accomplish for my first batch. It is definitely a process that I would never rush.

It was possible to finish 1,000 because there are so much that can be shared from one human being. The experience and the drama in my head are overwhelming if I just keep it all to myself. This blog is indeed my expression for a life that is lived not perfectly but the way I make an effort onto how.

I look forward to a better writing by the time I reached my 2,000th.

Cheers Yor, well done!

[1: 994 of 10,000] I Am Doing Advance Blog Posts

In Article on April 18, 2013 at 12:00 AM

Blogger To become a better writer, I was supposed to religiously blog everyday but with my career commitment I just can’t manage writing sanely, spend quality time with family and work crazily.

I want my writing to be a real date so for about 3 weeks in a row now I have been doing advance blog posts. I prefer to write on weekend (Friday or Saturday) because I know it is the time I am supposed to give to myself without the crazy on call work load (and I thought only doctors are on call). I find it easier to create more than 7 blog posts in one sitting that to write about anything within the day probably because I suppressed writing for how many days that when I am finally in front of my computer to blog the words pours hard and fast. It is such an exhilaration to be just writing.

The exciting part is I am curious to find out what blog was scheduled for the day. It’s like eating my favorite ice cream whenever I reread my daily blog post. It’s not blog narcism or is it?
