Life is a Journey. Not a Marathon.

When I started blogging, I thought it was easier to earn cash for you could do it without spending much time.

But I have come to realize that for you to monetize your blog, you have to build a community. You have to earn their trust first. You have to crawl as hard as possible and not to walk fast. ‘Cause again, life is a journey…a continuous progess to make. And not a marathon that just because you have something to say, you can post it right away.

Blogging takes time, takes effort for it to grow. So, if you are in a situation where in, you really don’t know what’s going on in your life, might as well take a break.

I guess, this is one of the short blog posts that I will be sharing with you all. But I hope you get something from it.

Thank you for taking the time to read my post. God bless!

New Year Means New Perspective!

Featured Image: Pexels

Hello, everyone! I’m really sorry for not being active lately. My full-time job became so hectic, which made me fail to fulfill my part-time job as a blogger.

Anyhow, I want you all to know that I am not chinese, but my family have acquired some chinese tradition.

I guess, there’s nothing wrong in believing in good luck by performing some practices like wearing some charms, placing the objects from the right position or even offering the necessary food.

Whatever that is, there’s no harm in trying, isn’t it?

Before we start, I also want you to know that adapting some kind of practices from different people isn’t a problem as long as you don’t forget your own root.

Appreciating and even applying others’ practices are not sinful, just know that whatever you apply to your life will only yield good result which means good life, good treatment to people and most of all…good practices.

Are you still here with me?

The following are the things that are new to our practices. Just to be clear, we do not own whatever practices we applied. But we encourage everyone to change their perspective into a good direction, meaning good mindset for success all boils down to having good character.

Before we celebrate New Year, I helped my parent to prepare different sets of play money, which according to her will attract more earnings in the coming year. We placed it on a transparent plastic. Sealed it. Placed a ribbon on it and hang it to our window each floor.
To welcome our New Year, we are adviced to take a bath with rose petals and a gem that was soaked in water. This is new to us and I guess, it’s quite cool!
And who would ever want to miss this red envelope that has a money inside? Everyone wants to have a money, most especially when it is the beginning of the year. They believed that having cash on your pocket would mean having money all throughout the year. But of course, with hardwork and some discipline on where to place and when to use money is still the key to succeed.
Looking back on my younger years, I used to believe that New Year needs to be extravagant where in, there should be a lot of preparation to make. But as I grew older, I came to realize that New Year simply mean…changing perspective. Celebrating New Year can be simpler, less complicated, and no worries at all. You can wear whatever you feel like. Again, it is still in the mindset of people which will truly bring good luck. The practices, positioning of objects, and even the food you offered are just some of the ways to help you attract good vibe.

So, what about you? What do you think of New Year? Does it excites you? Feel free to share with us your practices each time you and your family celebrate New Year. Thank you for reading my blog post and Happy New Year to all. Hoping for more blessings and good karma to all of you.

Human Giver Syndrome

I guess, I belong to this kind of group, where people still continue to be a slave to everyone. Even if it is already hurting, you’ll do it in the hopes that people will do the same for you.

Heck, that is not true!

Not everything in this world can be reciprocated.

It’s my day off today, but it totally ruined everything! What a terrible day!

By the way,

I learned this term from Emily & Amelia Nagoski’s book “Burnout: The Secret to Unlocking the Stress Cycle.”

Thanks to them, I was able to identify the cause of my stress.

When you do all the work, yet…

People still complain. I am totally pissed off today.

How about you? How are things going?

People always give me a crap like as if I am responsible for everything.

How totally annoying!

A Star Is Born

Featured Image: From This Website

Many months ago, I watched this film and the reason why I include this on my blog is because…

It clearly shows the real struggle of being an artist.

Whenever they are on stage, it often creates an anxiety to them.

No wonder, most of them had led themselves into taking drugs and becoming more dependent on alcohols im order to cover up their depression.

It’s a kind of high and low experience ’cause you never know what will be the reaction of people.

Some may cheer for you no matter what and some may boo you for making even the slightest mistake.

When the crowd gets loud and wild, the feeling was more like taking ectasy, a kind of drug where you’ll feel like you’ve already reached the pinnacle of your life.

But when the crowd gets disappointed, be ready enough what to be thrown at you. Abruptly, you’ll feel as if it was the worst nightmare you’ve ever had.

Thus, the film also portrays how challenging and depressing it is to be an artist.

Not to mention, you must compete with the younger generations as well. Otherwise, you’ll be left behind.

No matter how you adore your craft, you still need to explore and expose yourself to other things for you to improve and not to get stale in the entertainment industry.

Business is business and so is your talent, which is why, it gets even more harder to keep that job for it changes rapidly.

What’s trending right now, may no longer be impactful in the future. For this reason, you are expected to try someting else; something new and fresh.

That’s how crucial their job is…where fame doesn’t last long, not even money.

So, how about you? What are you planning to do with your life to make it worthwhile?

Please comment below.

Gracias!

Silent Scream

Featured Image: Pexels

When you want to say something, but you decided to shut your mouth ’cause you have nothing good to say.

When you became so used to hiding your feelings ’cause you were always misunderstood before they console you.

I felt that too often.

I also feel that I have this worst enemy in me that I can only solve by myself.

I am physically strong, yet too emotionally weak.

I have several tendencies to commit suicide.

But kept reminding myself that I still have many things to experience before ending my life.

This is for the people who cannot voice out.

This is not for the weak, this is just for the people who became fed up in trying to prove one’s worth.

There are some moments, well most of the time I really don’t open up.

I just don’t feel comfortable enough to share.

I may share a part of it. But not every detail.

There are some stuffs you have to keep it to yourself ’cause not everyone are a good listener.

Not everyone is understanding.

Not everyone is like you.

I am writing this ’cause whoever is planning to commit suicide, you are not alone.

‘Cause I am just like anybody else who can be a worst enemy to oneself.

When something or someone pissed me off, I try to limit my response.

I try to appear that I am not hurt.

I try to act okay.

But the truth is, the more I try to hide it, the more painful it becomes.

Sometimes, it is better to talk with strangers ’cause what’s more important is that…you were able to let it out.

I am voicing out here ’cause there are things that I cannot open up to others.

Some are way too jugdmental.

Some don’t have the heart to be understanding.

Some wouldn’t do any help to you.

So, why not share it here? Only people who can understand and relate to me can leave a comment.

That’s all.

Not Everything You Asked Can Be Freely Given To You

Featured Image: From This Website

I hate to say this,

But…

Most people are so used to asking a lot from others.

And sometimes, they are some kind of people who wanted everything to be free.

Are they insane or what?

They feel as if everything needs to be given freely just because

One,

They are your family or relatives.

Two,

They are acquainted to you.

Three,

Probably the worst of all,

You are well off enough than them.

So, why choose to be frugal over them when you have so much?

Am I correct?

Why Even Royalties Experience to Pity Themselves?

Featured Image: From This Website

Most people believed that money is the answer to everything.

If it truly does…

Then why even royalties or the rich ones on earth get to pity themselves?

It just shows that no matter how luxurious your life is…

You still get to experience frustrations in life not because you are not contented with the kind of life you have, but rather because we are all human beings.

Regardless of your life’s status, you will still get to experience this and that’s pretty normal. As clichΓ© as it may sound, not everything you could get.

Especially the intangible ones.

Namely,

Friendship, love, trust, and even passion.

Why Friendship?

Because we are wired to speak and to communicate. Failing to have someone to talk to leads you to question your life.

Why Love?

Because without it, there’s no reason to continue living.

The truth is…

No one can live on earth without anyone by their side.

Imagine you are just a baby and there was no one around.

No food.

No water.

Not even a shelter.

You think you could survive?

Why Trust?

I hate to say this, but all of us have experienced some kind of trust issues wherever we go.

And having no one to trust feels like you are invisible; that you don’t exist at all!

Lastly,

Why Passion?

Because I believe, we all have a purpose in life. God placed us on earth to find meaning in our lives.

And a life without a passion is like waiting for yourself to die without even knowing what you truly wanted in life.

See?

Not everything is about money.

It is about our relationship with God; with people whom we can trust and share our firsts moment.

And lastly, about how we see and treat ourselves.

How about you?

What intangible things that made you to pity yourself?

These are just some of the things that I believe is hard to find as well as to earn.

Please comment below and tell me what you think about my topic for today.

Gracias!

Learn To Control Your Temper Especially To The Elders

Featured Image: From This Website

Not so long ago, my parent who was nearly 60 got pissed off to me.

My parent who was known to have a bucket of patience suddenly burst into anger.

Well, I clearly understand where that mood came from.

One afternoon, I was asked to come upstairs to get my own food, but failed to do it out of busyness.

Of course, I got surprised when she scolded me.

So, I took some time off to tone down my emotion before I leave my work.

But not before long, the food was already at my place.

You see,

Both of my parents are already close enough to be a senior.

That is why,

It is no wonder that their level of patience suddenly became too little.

But, that doesn’t mean that they don’t love me enough.

Now that I am already a grown up woman, I have come to my senses that it is now my turn to understand them deeply with no reservation.

As much as possible, I try to avoid arguments every now and then…

Despite the fact that I was being right.

At some point in my life, I have come to realize that not all battles are worth fighting for.

‘Cause oftentimes,

It is not about being right, but rather about being kind.

You may have won in the argument, but you have lost the respect in them.

So rather than consuming all my energy to be well understood,

It is better to have an ear towards them 24/7.

You see, life is too short to entertain the ugly side of each person.

So, instead of feeding your mind with negative thoughts,

Why not focus on beautiful things that ever happened in your life?

I bet, that will be hard to count!

So…

If ever there has been a misunderstanding between you and your family or someone who’s older than you, learn to listen towards them.

Sometimes, getting angry means that they care way too much to you.

Too much that it now hurts you.

But here’s what you need to remember.

Someday, you’ll also get old; you’ll get weak; and you’ll feel helpless.

Words are deadly.

Please do remember that!

So, let’s try to control our temper whenever possible.

‘Cause I strongly believe that…

Whatever hurtful words that comes out of your mouth cannot be taken back.

How about you? When was the last time that your level of patience was put into test?

And what are the strategies that you have done in order to deepen your level of patience and understanding?
