10 Things I Learned This Year

As the old saying goes, “We live and we learn.” Sometimes we learn things the hard way through trial and error, failure and mistakes; and sometimes we learn from simply observing the people and things around us, and being open to new information and change. Fortunately this year, I had to learn nothing the hard…

The Stupid Things We Do When Young

I was cracking-up by a song on radio while driving to work yesterday—“Young Dumb & Broke”—apparently it’s a hit. When it ran into the chorus, I giggled and shook my head as my mind wandered down memory lane to all the dumb sh*t I did when I was younger. I cringed in embarrassment at the…

What Makes You Happy?

One thing I’ve learned so far in my journey, is that happiness is found in the simplest of things—like spending time with our loved one, making someone smile, doing something nice for someone, being grateful, or maybe even playing with our pets. Happiness for each of us varies; so I’m really excited to hear your…

Hard Work On a Hospital Bed

I’m an advocate for ambition and diligence. I believe our dreams will never be fulfilled and success will never be achieved if we just sit around, wasting time, hoping that something magically comes our way. That being said, I strongly believe we should maintain some sort of balance when it comes to working toward our…

Why Love and Pride Don’t Mix

When it comes to a choice involving love, ideally we think that love trumps everything; but the harsh reality is that it doesn’t always. Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you had to choose between love and something else? I think it’s one of the hardest decisions to face in life. How…

Choosing Love Over Fear

What would you do if you weren’t afraid? When that question was posed to me, I thought long and hard about my answer— What would I do if I weren’t afraid? I’ve faced some huge fears before. I made choices by following my heart and walking in faith, and it somehow always turned out in…

A List of Things To Do in My Lifetime

In my last post, I wrote about waiting to do things in life—waiting to ‘live’. It inspired me to share my life list, which is basically a list of all the things I want to achieve, the dreams I want to fulfil, and life experiences I wish to have. “Every man dies — Not every…

One Word That Makes Life Easier

It’s late. My eyes are growing heavy from the overwhelming exhaustion of my daily tasks. Still, my day isn’t over—I have to meal prep for the week ahead. I much rather be curled up in my bed watching a movie. Oh the joys of adulthood, “Why do I always have so much to do?” “I…

How Changing My Habits Completely Changed My Life

If you’re anything like the way I was, you perhaps don’t pay much attention to your daily habits. Did you know that our life is the result of all our habits? As Margaret Thatcher rightfully said: “Watch your thoughts, for they will become actions. Watch your actions, for they’ll become… habits. Watch your habits for they will…

Why I Changed The Way I Drive

A little over a year ago, I got into a moderate car accident while driving. Honestly, I was at fault — I was driving way too fast and made a poorly calculated overtake that caused me to get badly broadsided by a hugeeeee truck. In hindsight, I was extremely lucky that my car didn’t spin…

How I Gain Clarity and Stay Emotionally Balanced

I once had a lot of cluttered thoughts and unresolved emotions in my mind. Overthinking was my best-friend and nothing ever seemed clear and simple. This affected the way I felt and influenced the poor decisions and actions of my everyday life. At the start of my journey back in 2015, I read Micheal A. Singer’s, The…
