From A Dreamer To Another

“It’s better to look ahead and prepare, than to look back and regret.”

Be honest with yourself and figure out what changed over the years. Write down your reasons for taking on a different path. Take a chance and chase after your dreams, there’s no deadline for making it happen. Success and failure are a part of life, there’s no easy escape. 

What changes do you need to make about your life?

Why did you forget about your dreams?

What did you wish to do be when you grow up? 

We must not let society change us to a point of no going back. Everyone had or has a dream they want to make come true. For some it’s to be happy and live freely, for others it’s landing that dream job. Don’t let your past determine your future, especially if you are struggling to get by. Decisions ……decisions take a leap and go after what you want. Don’t find excuses to staying as you are and have life regrets later on. 

From A Dream

“All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.” Walt Disney

As kids we dream about being anything and everything, one minute you want to be an astronaut and the next a Super Hero. Somehow the world changes us, as we get into adulthood and start having responsibilities.  We start to focus on the things we should be doing rather than what we want to be doing. It can be a sad reality, when you realize that’s what life has amount to, to forgetting about your beautiful dreams of becoming something you wished for.

What do you do dream about these days?

Do you still dream?

 Don’t give up on what you are really passionate about. Remembered to reintroduce yourself to your dreams, whether if its an old or new dream, don’t forget about it.  There are many possibilities waiting to be explored, believe in yourself.

To New Experiences & New Memories

“You’ll never get bored when you try something new. There’s really no limit to what you can do.” 

It’s a brand new day and new year to try something different. The term “ New Year, New Me” may seem overrated, but there can be a new you,  if you work to find a better version of yourself. In the word of Steve Harvey “You are never too old to reinvent yourself.” so here’s to new experiences, new goals to achieve, new adventures, and new memories. 

Happy New Year; May 2020 bring you more happiness, more of everything you are looking forward to. 

“You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.”C.S. Lewis

In the name of Self Care & Self-Love

“As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.” —Maya Angelou

A lot of us forget to put ourselves first in life, so how are you doing in the self-care department? Everyone should know the term self -care or self-love.

  • The practices of taking action to preserve or improve one’s own health.
  • The practices of taking an active role in protecting one’s own well-being and happiness, in particular during periods of stress.
    “expressing oneself is an essential form of self-care”

It is more important to be true to yourself than to try to satisfy everyone else and get hurt along the way, remember you have the right to be yourself. Your time and energy are precious, so do something nice for yourself. Find what puts a smile on your face, sit in stillness, put your problems on pause even if its just a for a day. you need to take the time to look after yourself.

A round of applause for everyone who is trying hard to make it on their own.

“You owe yourself the love that you so freely give others.” – 

  • Develop a regular sleep routine.
  • Go for a walk at lunchtime.
  • Get some exercise before/after work regularly.
  • Keep a reflective journal.
  • Engage with a non-work hobby.
  • Turn off your email and work phone outside of work hours.
  • Make time for relaxation.
  • Make time to engage with positive friends and family.
  • Develop friendships that are supportive.
  • Go to the movies or do something else you enjoy.

This and That of the World

“The problem for a lot of people is that they don’t really know what they want. They have vague desire: to ‘do something creative’ or to earn more money or ‘to be free’, but they can’t really pin down what it is precisely that they want.”

The world only tells you are special when it needs you, not when you need it.

Why am I here? Why is this me?

Why don’t have this? why don’t have that ?

Why am I not doing something amazing?

Why am I not doing everything I want in life?

Sometimes people forget the things they actually do have. People tell you to be grateful you have a house, some people are homeless. Be grateful you have clean water, kids in the continent of Africa don’t have water. There will always be someone less fortunate, sadly as it is.

Be grateful you have this, be grateful you have that

Understand we are all grateful for the things we have, but you can also be sad, frustrated, mad at the world about how you living life. you can be whatever emotions arose….remember being a human being is hard

An act of Kindness

“Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you.” Princess Diana

Kindness is rare and beautiful, there is no such thing as a small act of kindness. Lead by example, don’t wait till you see someone doing an act of kindness for you to do so. We get so entwine in our own world sometimes that we forget to mind those around us. Learn how to treat others with the love and kindness that they deserve. Human relationships takes time, you can’t build a relationship without generosity, integrity and kindness. Contribute to the kindness that this world is missing.

Because kindness is:

  • being supportive
  • being appreciative
  • being mindful of others
  • being a decent human being

Goodbye summer; Hello fall

“You can’t reach your potential by remaining in a past due season. Your breakthrough is coming. Strongholds are breaking. Get Ready!”

Finally fall is here, one of my favorite time of the year, when it’s not too hot nor cold. As I looked back I realized all I did was work this summer, no time for a summer vacation. I enjoyed myself in other ways, by going hiking, trying different cuisines, and meeting new people through writers workshop. Trying different things helped me to be more open-minded and more aware of my surroundings.

It’s a new day, new season, so what are you thinking of doing differently. May this season bring you joy and new beginnings. Get used to falling and getting back up again to find your path to improve. You already possess the tools you need to live the life you want, so do what you must to have a healthy version of yourself.

“Every day, every year, every new season is a reset from the last, and you are still hungry for success, to do things better and better”

Observation: Self-Recognition

“The mind is just like a muscle – the more you exercise it, the stronger it gets and the more it can expand.” 

Am I using my time wisely?

Am I taking care of myself physically?

Am I letting matters that are out of my control stress me out?

Am I achieving the goals that I’ve set for myself?

We tend to be critical of ourselves when we do something wrong. In life you can’t learn unless you make mistakes along the way. It can become apparent if you criticize yourself too much, which affects you mindset.  I am sure you hear this all the time “Make the most of yourself, for that is all there is of you.” Recap those critics and note your improvements, praise yourself so you can see growth. Understanding who you are and being honest with yourself is the first step to self-improvements.

What could you do all day and not consider it a waste of time?

How do you know when you’re being completely authentic?

What are some challenges, difficulties, and hardships you’ve overcome or are working to overcome?

What advice would you give yourself 5 years ago? 5 years from now?

 “If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always be where you’ve always been.” 

Relationships/Connections: Personal & Professional

“Love, friendship, and networking – these are all critical connections and the foundation of a healthy, happy life”.

During College I learned the importance of having a connection and what it can do. Whether if it’s a personal or a professional connections, it matters more than I thought. I realized that we get so entwine with our lives that we forget or unaware of others contributing to it. Nothing should ever be taken for granted, but it happens anyway. The importance of connections is overlooked, a simple “Hey how are you? Or Hey how’s the new job?” goes a long way. I find that most of us are Self-contained, which cause a rift in creating a relationship in the first place. We don’t realize that we are indebted to so many people. Always remember to show and hold gratitude for the ones who makes time to connect with you.

To the person who checks on you

To the person who gave you, your first job

To the person who cares about your well being

To the person who makes time for you

“Real relationships are the product of time spent, which is why so many of us have so few of them.” 

Friday; After Work

“People wait all week for Friday, all year for summer, all life for happiness”.

Are you eager to leave work for the weekend to enjoy yourself? It’s a new day, new month; how about trying something different, something innovative. One of the best feelings of leaving work, is knowing you can sleep in the next day.  Trust me, for someone who works two jobs, I know. I barely have time to plan anything for the weekend.  Even so I still make time to try different things. We have a tendency to become lazy once we get trapped on the work routine of doing the same thing every day.

When was the last time you’ve gone outside of your comfort zone?

Why don’t you do the things you know you should be doing?

Motivate yourself to be open, to do more. Make time to enjoy yourself, paying bills isn’t all that life is about, seriously. Bringing your stress home is a definite NO, it causes more stress and unhappiness for you. Remember the weekend will end eventually, so make the best of the free time you have after work.

Have a good weekend!

“FRIDAY. Make each day of the week like Friday and your life will take on new enthusiasm”.

One of these days

Happy July, May this month bring you joy!

“Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.”    

Today is one of those days, where getting out of bed seems impossible. I don’t feel like answering to adulthood calling. We all have our moments, and feels down sometimes. It’s inevitable, we can’t be happy all the time. I see it as life way of telling us to calm down, everyday can’t be our day. Nonetheless, I still have to cheer myself up and get ready for work. That’s the thing about life, times goes on, as I am sitting here getting myself together. It’s okay to wake up in a sour mood and be however you want to be, but try your best to not be like that throughout your day.  Just a reminder your mood also affects those around you. Learn to make the best of what you have.  Drink coffee or tea and put on your best smile to have a good day.

“If you plan on being anything less than you are capable of being, you will probably be unhappy all the days of your life.”
