When Negativity Strikes.

Mood on October 18, 2016:

Please don't judge me, I am on a negative mode today: because I am tired of ignoring negativity and tired of being positive amidst people who doesn't know what positivity is!

Disclaimer 🚫: positive people please don't read it!

There is a limit to everything, there is a limit to negativity, to anger, to show offs, ego, greed, hypocrisy and jealousy; and then there is this tolerance level - and trust me, mine has almost touched the sky!

Shouting aloud about what you have done for other people; telling them how grateful they should be; having an intention of embarrassing and making the other person feel low; forgetting other people's help and all good deeds; claiming that you are a good person; claiming that you are spiritual and chant 1000 prayers everyday; makes you no less than people who do nothing for you and in fact even worst than them!

Please wake up and stop barking! Live and let live: many doesn't get this chance; please don't let God regret for creating you! 🙏🙏🙏 Thank you very much!

P.S: There are many types of negative energy, some could be just ignored, some could be even smiled at and let it go, but this time this one was not something i could just ignore or let go. 

May Peace Prevail on Earth (Prayers).

My Forty Before Forty is here finally!

Can't believe it's already time to make my 40 before 40. Phew, definitely feeling so old (Laughing Out Really Loud with Blurred Eyes). Nevertheless, feeling much wiser, much better and better in all ways,  much stronger, much happier and content. Many things have changed,  I am certainly not the person I used to be. I am more calm, more matured, more learned and much kinder. I don't have any wrinkles yet, my face doesn't show any signs of aging, I feel happy, I feel grateful.  More importantly, I realize nothing is for free, you have to earn everything and the charm of earning it is incredible. From simple things like money, vacation to bigger ones like respect, change and love, everything requires your hard work, determination and positive energy. As I turned 30 this October, I believe I have the potential to be more better, make differences and raise higher. Ok then, my 40 before 40 is here:

I. Self Awareness/Development and Growth:

1. Be an Active Blogger. Publish at least an article every month (more on personal development and growth) making it 120 articles eh?

2. Make Self Care a Priority (taking care of my own inner development and growth, physical health, fitness, beauty, habits, everything that makes a difference to me). Improve my Eye Sight

3. Develop a regular, serious Meditation and Yoga habits; Pray Every day; Go on a Meditation Retreat.

A day that was ...... (September 21, 2016)

8:45AM: I meet a middle aged man as I walk down my home staircase. I don't know him, he smiles at me kindly as he sees me. As I smile back, I believe in humanity and i want to do better.😇😇😇
9:15AM: I call an official for a work which she is responsible for and then I get served with her morning mood. Literally shouting over the phone, she keeps me wondering if she had a fight or got served with her boss' morning mood too. Getting shouted at when I have no idea what wrong i did, I lose faith in humanity and then I just wanna be like her 👿👿👿

10:00AM: I randomly share about how I forgot some rules after being out of touch for a year. My supervisor nods his head and acknowledges it and apologizes for not giving me enough time to go through them. As I believe good people exist, I wanna be a very good person as well and work harder.
10:30AM: Something totally unexpected and unusual happens in office. I keep wondering and thinking with the clouds 💭 Embarrassed 😳, My reactive mind already checked out the BBS job announcements for a new job. 👿😆👀
11:45AM: A family who is sick is waiting for me to take him to the hospital. My mother tells me how important and useful I am to my family with a choking voice. My family has faith on me. I feel more responsible, I feel human and I wanna do more.
12:30PM: A man is lying on a green bed in the hospital all oxygenated, unconscious and has a swollen stomach. Someone sits beside him. She is healthy, pretty and young; she tells me (someone she saw for less than a min) she is tired of taking care of the patient. She explains she has been there for a day, and wonders how her mother bore it for months. And then I come to know that the person on the bed is in fact her father. That leaves me broken, I wonder what kind of world we are living in? What is more important than your parents after all. 😒😠🤔
6:00PM: I enter home. With the aroma of my favorite tea flavor and the smell of home, I feel happy. As I relax, my sister gets me a cup of tea and gives me a good massage. Such love, that I want to forget everything and be something more than everyone else.
6:30PM: I scroll down my Facebook feeds and then see the saddest news of the day. The Angelina Jolie and Brat Pitt divorce. Baam 💣 And all that happened was nothing after all, finally I realize nothing last forever! ☹️😞😭
