When was the last time you stopped for a moment and took a look around you and the pace everything seems to be moving at? Life seems pretty fast? Months feel like weeks, weeks like days, and days like hours. And 2018 is almost over. We're always trying to beat time when in reality time … Continue reading Slow down
All these thoughts. Positive and negative. Positive thoughts that are telling you, “you could become the person you dream of after hard work, being disciplined, and having consistency and persistence”. But the negative thoughts — these are the killers. They tell you that you suck; they tell you that you’ll never get to be the person you’re … Continue reading Make it or break it
The idea of giving up food in any shape or form for a whole day sounds out of this world for most people. Why should I even do that when there’s so much of it around me at any given moment and time? That’s true. Why should I? But that’s the truth that opened my … Continue reading Fasting though life
The term best friends or anything similar is too fragile. People come and go. Some stay longer, some are there when you’re doing well and leave when you’re struggling. Of course these aren’t real best friends or friends at all. Some friends hang with you because they feel good around you, while others need something from … Continue reading Best friends
Perhaps one of the most underrated skills in life — figuring things out on the go, as you start a new job or a new project; while trying to learn a new language, skill, tool; or when trying to switch careers. It also works when you get lost during traveling or in life. Just figure it out. … Continue reading Figure it out
I remember back in the days when I’d hold back on thoughts and feelings because I didn’t want to hurt people, especially loved ones. I’d try not to argue, fight back, or express how I truly feel. The more I did this, the worse I felt in relationships — I’d feel I left something hanging, I’d feel … Continue reading Say what you mean
You’ve got to be careful with what you say because every word and sentence that comes out of your mouth will never come back. Don’t over promise when you’re under pressure, you will regret it later when you can’t deliver. And people will not take you seriously or trust you anymore. It takes years of actions to gain trust, … Continue reading They don’t come back
It’s of novices to think every battle* can be won. It’s immature to even think of this possibility. There are people who think everything is possible though. And who am I to change their mind when I have no control over that? I control myself and have more than enough trying to do so. I … Continue reading Can you win ’em all?
We’ve got used to writing pieces of thoughts. Here and there. Whatever comes out of our mind first, we type it and hit send. No analyzing, no proofreading, no paraphrasing or summarizing. Just hit send. What a poor habit. We don’t allow our thoughts to be fully formed before sending them away. It’s like the … Continue reading Hey
We’re always comparing and judging even when we think we aren’t. There isn’t a moment we aren’t comparing people, experiences or situations. There are no judgment-free zones or thoughts even when we think there are. We’re often seeing the grass greener across the street. We compare people with other people when nobody is or will ever be the same, we compare experiences with other experiences when they’re very different from each … Continue reading Compared to what?
