Fresh Start

image

I had a spectacular day Kayaking and hiking with friends yesterday, and I certainly paid the price well this morning as I woke up with a pounding headache and an overall sore body.

Mais je ne regrette rien. 

Lately, I’ve been noticing a huge slack, discipline and career wise. I’ve been using my transition to my other Surrey office relocation as an excuse not to do the things I need to do.

May is already ending. I don’t want tardiness and excuses to become part of my habit.

So it’s time for a fresh start.

Kick it off! Make progress. You can do it. 🙂

Location: my favourite greenery getaway with wild rabbits and ducks

Spending time with my family friends today made me realize one thing: a life filled with the constant need of adjusting yourself to others and their opinions is a life I don’t prefer to live.

Listening to their conversations, it became clear to me that all they ever did was spend time with each other….. every. Single. Day.

The financial advisor in me cringes at the extent of what these daily hangouts cost. Easily for snacks, movies and dinner – $20 – $50 down the drain. Imagine the savings they’d have every month!!!

Whatever happened to a life filled with purpose? Don’t these people have anything that wakes them up in the morning and make them do what they want to do?

On a happier note….
I am happy to see my church family growing in numbers. Admittedly I haven’t been active as much as I wanted to be, but I realize I say the same in most areas of my life.

If only. If only. If only.
So many things are holding me back…..

Why not just let go and run free?

Give your 100% in everything that you do. No more excuses. No more what ifs.

Irony

The more you find something, the more it eludes you. The more you forget it, the more it comes to you.

Isn’t it funny how life works?

When we are children we rush to grow up, but when we grow up we long to be children again? When we are awake we wish we were asleep, but when we are asleep we wish we are awake.

We dream of the future yet we are afraid of it to come.

We live as if we will never die, but we die as if we never lived.

Humans are interesting, yet confusing.

Dog Therapy

Growing up, I never really understood what it meant to be stressed. Sure, I felt pressured whenever there were deadlines for essays and projects in school but it really wasn’t the end of the world.

It wasn’t until I ventured out into creating my enterprise that I started to realize what that word really meant.

Whenever I see someone successful – whether that be in their career, business, personal life or wherever, I always saw the glory in their victory; but I failed to see their grit, hard work and sacrifices that they did to get there.

It’s also really silly of me to think that conflicts, obstacles and challenges will stop once you overcome one hump in your life. I’m glad that I’ve come to an acceptance that these things are necessary for progress and change. It keeps life interesting and invigorating.

But during those little humps in life, one can’t really help but be bogged down by the weight of the problems. We are only human after all.

I’ve encountered this in my own personal life that all I ever thought about was to work – work and work… until it came to a point that my health suffered tremendously. That time was definitely a wake up call: a wake up call to regain balance again in my life.

For a long time I’ve been searching to find some balance, and I’m glad to say that I’m finding it. Some people call it – plugging off, reconnecting or a stress relief activity…

I call it my therapeutic activity: my therapy to my stress.

I appreciate all the moments I get to spend on reflection. Reflection on myself, my life, my career and everything else. I also appreciate the moments I get to spend reconnecting with nature or just letting my mind roam free through writing or music.

My favourite one thus far has to be long walks with my favourite canine animal in the world – dogs.

I stumbled upon the dog shelter by accident. One day, my brother asked me whether or not I wanted to come with him to the dog shelter to walk the dogs. They were lacking in volunteers, and not really knowing what to expect – I trusted my gut and went with him.

When I walked in the shelter, I felt like I was at home. I realized I had so much passion for these animals who were alone and left behind.

Looking at these dogs who probably had either a traumatic life or owners who gave them up for whatever reason, I definitely had a lot of things to learn from them.

These animals are perfect examples of carpe diem – living in the moment. It didn’t matter what happened to them in the past. If you love them now, they’ll love you too.

As I took these dogs out for walks and took care of them, there was an undeniable sense of peace I felt in my heart as I stood beside them. There’s a strange calming sensation I feel from the dogs, and whenever I look at them and they look at me back with their beady eyes, somehow… I feel so reassured.

This has been the best therapy to me so far.

Miracle

Miracle…. Miracle…. Miracle….

There’s only one week and a few days left for May and my mind is going around in circles. The team is still short of almost 30,000 points to wrap up another promotion.

Lord, what can we do?

I could definitely learn a thing or two from my trainer.

“We will pull this through, no matter what.”

Be brave, little girl. Have faith and have courage.

Together, we can make this happen.
