Whether or not they feel like it…

Story Time

reading
It’s been a while.

Events of the past few months would have made for some pretty interesting posts.

Birthday things.

Sethu’s hilarious toddler mannerisms.

Small goals being reached and goals missed.

Social media breaks.

Friends being fired.

A growing business.

Relationship…disagreements and resolutions.

Work things and politics.

The list goes on.

The point.

Everyone has a story to tell.

It’s not a competition.

Sometimes writing things down makes you feel better.

There might be something in what you write that I might find helpful.

Who knows, maybe my prayers are going to be answered through your next blog update.

She does work in mysterious ways.

When Death, Time & Love Write Back 

I don’t like movies that make me cry.

Watching Collateral Beauty starring Will Smith had me squinting my eyes.

collateral_beautyHolding my tears back with my eyelids.

It’s been a while since I’ve watched a movie like that.

Evoking so much emotions then throwing me out of wack after it was done with me.

It was Mr. Smith’s best performance to date.

Enjoyed listening to the story behind the scenes on how he also experienced loss during the making of the movie.

How he just went all out in giving it all through the film.

Can’t wait until it’s out on Blu-ray.

It’s worth the watch.

Please forgive me.

I’m sorry.

Thank you.

I love you.

“Let the dead bury their own dead…”

Just want to extend on my Tumblr that the saying that goes “it gets easier with time,”… I don’t know about that hey.

The sting is still there, but maybe not as loud as before.

It’s like sand running through your hands.

She was alive…

…Then she wasn’t.

Followed by my friend’s father.

Then my work colleague.

Death was on a roll that’s for sure.

I think I don’t want to admit that it does get better with time.

Maybe because feeling the pain is evidence that it was real.

Her being with us, being with me.

But eventually there’s going to come a time when I will question whether this pain makes sense any more.

Or if it’s denying me the joy I could be experiencing right now.

But not right now.

PS: But one day I will. Life is too short to be living in the past.

Time Management Is Self Management

The best way to manage your time is to manage yourself.

Look at what you do that generates the kind of results you want to achieve.

Most of the time you will find that the things you believe got you ahead you can do without, or alternatively delegate to someone else while you focus on things that excite you.

20% of what you do counts for 80% of the results you are get.

List the top 5 things that will bring you the results you want for the following day.

After every completed task, mark it off your list as the day progresses.

Do this for the week, then a month and people around you will come to think that you are good at time management.

Only to find that you’re just good at managing yourself.

Sometimes the most simplest of things are the most effective.

I love you.

Thank you.

Guaranteed Results ONLY If You Are COMMITTED to Getting Them

For the principles to work for you, you need to work the principles.
– Jack Canfield,
co-author of The Success Principles

Those face products that improve your skin on those TV ads got me thinking that a similar kind of conditioning needs to be applied to your brain, so to improve your thoughts.

When you improve your thoughts you improve the results you keep getting.

Just like those face products for your skin, you need to apply them every…single…day for them to have any positive results for you.

These ads Guarantee results ONLY is you use them daily over a specified time period.

Not every now and again when you feel like it.

Not today then skipping tomorrow because you’re running late or you’re tired.

Then doing twice as much so to make up for the day lost.

No.

Every day.

Over a specific period.

So whatever technique you come across or whatever powerful system you might attract, give it time for it to work for you.

Give it time for it to set and begin to rise.

Give it time for it to cleanse your old you and replace it with the new you.

How long?

As long as it takes.

You don’t set a goal for the sake of reaching the goal, you set a goal for the drive and allure of the person you become reaching it.

Thank you.

I love you.
