Sincerity

안녕하세요

Didn’t realise I have been missing for a month from blogging. I was lost again. Lost in direction and feeling very down with everything. So it took me a while to stand up again to ignore all the negative energy. I try to do meditation by doing self-reflection. I am also training my E.Q to be stronger so that I will not be influenced by negative energy.

Today while I am driving to work, I was thinking about this word which is “Sincerity”. How do I identify who is sincere to me or who is using me for their own benefit? Those people who are always smiling at me, are they sincere or they are just waiting for a good time to push me down. Then I was going thru some research, I found this interesting cartoons with a tittle of Sincerity Cartoons from Cartoon Stock.

When I was going thru, I was laughing because Cartoon Stock illustrates the current world situation. Humans are a selfish creature. Only a minimal of the population will treat people sincerely. What you see and hear sometimes might not be sincerely from the speaker.  The below cartoon stated clearly that the girl is “sincerely” trying to shut the audience and ask them to go away. If you lazy to comfort negative people, you will just prepare the thing needed to pacify them. This is just to avoid unnecessary thing to happen.

Sincerity Cartoon

Another cartoon that really attracts my attention is the below cartoon. This is so true. Everyone is giving you feigned sincerity greetings. That is why this kind of greeting cards sold out faster than genuine emotions greetings.

I will never understand why some people have that kind of bad intentions. I think they are not afraid of Karma. They are not, but I am. That is why I always ensure whatever I do is always from my heart. People who appreciate me, they will get my sincere treatment, people who are not, I will eliminate them by avoiding them.

Thanks to Cartoon Stock. You make my Monday smile.

New Week Quotes To Stay Positive and Focus 

안녕하세요

I start my week with a quote. This week quote is being myself and avoids drama king/queen people. I not able to change these people because is all depends on themselves, but I can avoid these people in order to have a more peaceful life.

I notice younger generations (Not to say I am very old) now likes to drama in front of their bosses. I can’t really understand the reason why they want to do that but I assume is for their own benefit and to climb up faster in their corporate ladder world.

To me, I always believe that as long as I am kind and being honest to everybody and treat everybody with my sincere heart, I will have a better life. I might not be successful in the corporate world, but I believe I will be successful being a kind human being because I always believe that Karma will hit you one day if you being evil. Like what Master Sun always say in his “Super Life Secret Codes”, 2 secret codes that will lead you to a better life, LOVE & GRATITUDE.

SHOUT OUT TO ALL DRAMA PEOPLE, LEAVE ME ALONE, I JUST WANT TO WORK PEACEFULLY!

 

Be Myself

 

Happy Wesak Day

안녕하세요

I am very gratitude that I was given extra holiday today. With this extra holiday, I have the additional hour to spend time with my beloved family, to read my book,  to update my blog and to continue with my DIY project.

I am telling myself not to give any excuses to delay any task that I have set for myself. I know that if I continue giving excuses and reason, I will not go anywhere. If I continue complaining about my life, I will not go anywhere as well.

Today, I was given additional hours to sleep. This is bad because I woke up at 11 am today. Not a good habit, but because I slept late yesterday as I was too into my DIY project. So the first thing I woke up I received a call from my tenant asking for urgent assistance as the residential penthouse they rent having power supply problem. Once I put down her call, It wakes up my mind and I thank god for not ignoring the call because if I do not pick up her call she will be having a bad holiday.

So the first thing when I woke up I received a call from my tenant asking for urgent assistance as the residential penthouse they are renting having power supply problem. Once I put down her call, It wakes up my mind and I thank god for not ignoring the call because if I do not pick up her call she will be having a bad holiday. So I try to call the team to get a technician on standby to assists on this matter. I was disappointed because I try to get the team but no one is cooperating. However, I tell myself, never give up, never be angry, they might be busy with something. Finally, after waiting and keep on trying, one colleague reply me but instead of assisting me, he is giving excuses. Saying that isn’t his job, should ask the common property management to assists. I feel is very bad for him to say that because it shows he is someone who is irresponsible and selfish. However, I tell myself, never be angry, never reply impolitely, so courteously, I requested for assistance again. Finally, another colleague comes in and assists on this matter. The matter did not go smooth, however, is under control now. I shall monitor if their problem occurs.

I try not to absorb the negative energy given by my colleague, I try not to talk bad about him, I tell myself to stay positive because I practising the concept in the book which I am still reading now, Happiness in Hard Times by Andrew Matthews. It says that problem will not fix if we continue criticising people. Every person who walks in your life is a teacher. Even if they drive you nuts, they teach you because they show you where your limits are. Just because people are your teachers doesn’t mean you have to like them or be like them. 

So, I move on after the incident and continue reading my book, and update my blog. After this, I will continue my DIY project.

6 Excuses Postponing Happiness

안녕하새요

Time seriously flies in a second because #TGIF has arrived. I have been focusing reading my motivation books. Reminding myself to ensure I continue searching #MyColourfulLife. I am trying to master two wonderful books. One of the books is Super Life SecretCodes by Master Sun. Another one is Happiness  In Hard Times by Andrew Matthews.

I am practising very hard now on those principles and ways both authors suggested. I realise, is easy to read and understand, but is seriously not easy to remember it and practice. I have the tendency to forget and continue with my bad habit.

I love Andrew Matthews book because of the colours and cartoon in the books. At the same time, there are case studies of real life scenario in order for you to understand better. I remember reading this Happiness In Hard Times a few years back. I think I have read it but I am not practising it because I am seriously going thru Hard Times now.

I think is good that I note it down each time I finish one chapter. This is to remind Me, and also to share with everyone who willing to read my journey.

The first Chapter is about Acceptance.

Andrew is telling us to accept where you are and to forget about blame, forget about guilt, forget about “what ifs” and move forward. I really want to note down and highlighted a few points from this chapter which is:

  • Acceptance means: “This is where I am – and now I move on to what I want.”
  • Acceptance isn’t giving up. Acceptance is recognition that, “This is part of my journey”.
  • Acceptance is power.

This is so true. In order to change, we have to accept we, ourself. Instead of complaining and compiling all the negative energy into our mind.

“Life is like a movie. It’s not the length but the quality that matters”. If you are not happy with yourself, no matter how long you live in this world, you will still be negative and unhappy and life will be very hard and if you continue being negative, you will not be able to love other people. Not until you learn to love yourself.

One of the applicant name Adrian reminds the readers that good thing happens in small steps. Look for good things, focus on the present and do what you can do today.

What interest me the most and is very true where is happening to me is we are giving too many excuses and end up we are postponing our happiness. There are 6 Excuses which is emphasised in the book and I am reviewing myself how many excuses I am using:

  1. If I were somewhere else, I’d be happy.

Seriously, this is so ME. I am just running away from the situation. If I run away with the problem without solving it, anywhere I go, I will still encounter the same unhappiness because I bring my bad habit and negative thinking with me.

   2. If I were older or younger- I’d be happy

Not me. I never use this excuse before. I never worry about age because I never know who am I and what I want. I now start to worrying about my age, because I realise if I do not figure out myself now, I am seriously in deep trouble because I still have a long journey to go.

    3. When I meet the perfect partner I’ll be Happy!

This excuse honestly happens on me. I have been with my fiance for 10 years and 6months. Along the journey, we have gone thru a lot of challenges. Happiness, sadness, disappointment, angry and much more. When you are in one relationship too long and you did not learn to understand each other more, and not learning to compromise, then you will lose the spark. I am lucky, very lucky one because I manage to eliminate the negativity energy that affected our relationship. I learn to love him more and learn not to run away from disagreement but confront and discuss with him on the same day. So far, we are planning for our wedding photo shooting which is happening in this coming May and our wedding dinner at end of November.

    4. If I didn’t have these problems I’d be happy!

I guess every one of us who yet to discover the right thinking will use this excuses to avoid happiness. We always avoid the problem. When there is a problem occur, you either blame another person, or you will just keep quite and run away from solving it. This is what I am trying very hard to adapt it. I learning how to accept problem which already happened and instead of complaining, I find a solution to resolved it. This will also avoid small problem becoming a big problem.

   5. If Only I Had That!

Very true excuse all of us is using. Even myself. That is why I end up realised that I own a lot of stuff. All these stuff actually is unnecessary and not all the thing I owned I am using, so end up it took up my cabinet storage. I might be thrilled the 1st day and 2nd day, but subsequently, I don’t feel anything anymore and end up is just going to be a display item in the cabinet.

   6. I’ll be happy when…

This excuse, I think is displaying my current situation where I am telling myself “I think I will be happy if I know what I want to do and what is my passion”. So, meaning to say that if I cannot find MYSELF and my passion I will continue to be sad. How can I discover MYSELF and discover my passion if my mind is full of negative thinking and energy? That is why I choose to blog my journey because expressing myself through blog makes me happy and also I able to track my journey.

In a Nutshell – The happiest people aren’t waiting for anything to happen. They learn to accept the current position and move forward. I slowly discover my happiness by blogging and by reading. =)

If You Never Failed, You’ve Never Try!

Woke up hugging my laptop because I slept with it (Very bad habit). First thing when I am awake, there is a video about Thomas Edison that was displayed on my Facebook page. Everybody know is Thomas Edison. He has become who he is today is because of the invention of the light bulb and because of his never give up attitude, we have the light bulb to use.
I keep asking myself, what is my passion. Now I realise, how would I know if I do not try it out. My weakness is I am not comfortable with trying new things. I do not have the courage and confident to do it. This is the problem when you are always been protected by your family. I am a family person.
So, in order to step out from the comfortable zone, I need to start searching for my new path. While searching, I have been keeping a record on all the motivational quotes that will motivate me in #MyColourfullife Journal. This blog will be my 1st step in order for me to discover more.

 

What Is My Passion? Who Am I?

안녕하새요

 

I have been asking myself this question since last year. What Is My Passion? Since everybody has passions. I should have one as well right?

Seriously, I didn’t know what I really want to do. To the extent, I have been asking God, Why I was brought to this world. How can I survive in this selfish and complicated world without knowing my own direction?

After long thinking and searching, I realise, to be able to find my Passion, First thing, I need to search for MYSELF. I took a lot of classes in order to discover myself. I have taken Marketing Advertising Research, Graphic Design and Digital Marketing (most of them is part-time courses for professional). Currently, I have taken Web Design course from CodesTrust. I seriously wanted to discover myself. I feel so lost and demotivated by not knowing what I want to pursue.

I was reading the article from Entrepreneur about  How Smart People Work Less and Get More Done. One of the points highlighted that when you pursue something you are passionate about, it will release stress and it will open your minds to a new way of thinking. The worst part is I don’t even know who I am. What I want. What is the purpose I am living in this world? If I not able to find out Who I Am, I pretty sure, I will not be able to find my own Passion.

I have been doing a lot of research about “Finding Ownself”. I found a video clip about Ed Sheeran. He mentioned that he is a very weird child. He is a person who doesn’t know how to express in a right way. He went thru few therapies but it doesn’t work. He emphasize that to “Be Yourself”. Do not try to be another person. Being yourself is the coolest thing ever, and YOU are one and the only one. I love the ending sentence the most EMBRACE WHO YOU ARE. 

So I have to be gratitude that God created me and allow me to come to this world. He has given me this chance to explore myself and my task is to discover myself. I should never give up and to work harder. I will love to receive some feedbacks for self-Discovery from others as well.

Thanks a lot for your patient.

Raindrop Represent My Tears (Photoblog)

Recently, I have found out my passion hobby which is blogging. I am a person who does not know how to express my own feeling. I always keep it to myself. Sometimes, is really very tiring because is really pain inside me.

I notice that I able to express myself here. My wording might not be as good as a professional blogger; however, I wish to improve myself so that I able to write better.

Working life is tough recently. Confusion and negativity feeling increasing. Trying very hard now.

Recently is a raining season. Is also my feelings too. Tired, angry and disappointed. The raindrop represents my tears in my heart. Hoping everything will be better soon.

True meaning of Volunteerism

I always wonder what is the true meaning of “Volunteer” and how or when can we use the word “Volunteer”? If I search in dictionary.com, Volunteer means that “a person who voluntarily offers himself or herself for a service or undertaking”. It can be also mean that “a person who performs a service willingly and without pay”. 

So, what are you going to do if you are actually being told to do something and you are not willing to do it, but because of some reason, you have to do it, else you will have to face the consequences. So, is it still consider as volunteer? What is volunteer?

I always wish that I able to voice out this question, however, due to some reason, I try not to because it will definitely become an issue and “some people” will use it to attack me. That is why I choose to keep quiet and just be calm. Nothing much I can do because I am not an important person, just need to make sure I am myself. What goes around, comes around. So..stay calm and be sincere and positive.
