    Turning Pain into a Burning Light 🕯

    Sometimes I wonder why it’s taking me so long to just sit back and be content with what I have. I can never just take a break and call it a day, every day I relentlessly try to figure out my purpose. Don’t get me wrong, I’m super grateful for everything I have going for me. It’s just that I feel I’ve become addicted to becoming better, addicted to raising the bar on all fronts of my Life. What’s been driving this? Why am I always hungry? The answer is pain. In fact, all the good things I have going for me are a result of pure pain. Pain through…

    Losing Yourself in Searching 🔭

    I can’t believe how naive I was for not taking care of myself. During the past couple of months, I got so lost in the art of doing, that I forgot “why” I was doing what I was doing in the first place. I was getting so caught up in the day-to-day activities of my business, that my vision of my business had started to fade away. I was getting so caught up in the micro tasks of each day, that I was losing touch with the macro vision of my Life. I was so caught up in paddling my boat, forgetting to lift my head up and see where I was actually headed. Everyday…

    Monkey Mind 🙈

    Disclaimer: This post does not allude to evolution nor the idea that we’re descendants from a particular animal species. Bear with me here (pun intended). I can’t count how many times I get distracted with new and exciting ideas everyday. Ideas as to how I can make better improvements to my career, add more value to my business, or even eat breakfast more efficiently! One of the interesting characteristics of my personality type (ENFJ) is that I exhibit a trait called “monkey mind”. What is monkey mind? In short, monkey mind is a characteristic where your mind frequently enjoys shifting it’s attention to the shiniest object in the room, always seeking to start something new and more exciting.…

    Be like water 💧

    I’m learning not to dwell too much on the annoying details of life, because when I do so I notice it draws too much of my energy that could’ve been best put somewhere else. Learning to let things go is probably not one of my best strengths due to my high levels of empathy and emotional intelligence, which unfortunately sometimes backfires into high sensitivity. Martin Luther King Jr. had it, no one can doubt his outstanding ability to mesmerize and capture the hearts of his people with his words and actions, but he was also known to be very sensitive to criticism. I truly admire my strengths and I am just so…

    Love all, trust a “few” 🙊

    I came across this quote as I was scrolling through my Facebook feed, and I believe it’s true. Most people who know me know that I give my love out to everyone and everything. While I do in fact give out my love unconditionally, I’ve come to learn that I must be careful as to who I add to my circle of “trusted members”. There are those whom I love, and there are those whom I love and “trust” – that’s a BIG difference. No matter how pure and sincere your intentions are, you can’t guarantee that the receiving-end has the same in store for you. I’m not saying you…
