Day 77

This is from Thursday March 18th.

Within the week of my Papa’s passing, we had a funeral for him. It was a lovely and beautiful service. I miss him and love him so much. I just wished we had more memories towards the end. Only because the final year of his life was spent in lockdown, so we couldn’t visit him. I feel like if I was able to see him during his final year, I wouldn’t feel so sad.

Something that my Papa always lived by, was to devote your time into your passions. Find what you are passionate about and spend your time working on them. It really encourage me to devote my time to spend time brainstorming and writing down some book ideas. My lifelong dream is to be a published author. I would love to be my own boss, and just write books. I have been planning on getting all caught up with the things I am behind in, like reading my library books, my blog, and just rearranging things in my room.

It is important to spend a bit of time every day to work on your goals and passions. Even if it’s just five minutes, it will be five minutes more than what you would have spent on your dreams if you didn’t.

Today, I will discover what my passions, and what I would like to accomplish in the upcoming weeks, months, or even years, depending on what your goal is. Once I have decided on what I want to achieve in my life, I would devote a little bit of time every day to achieve all that I would like to achieve.

Day 76

This is a lesson from Wednesday March 17th, 2021.

What bothers me is that my mom is convinced that she is able to accomplish more by doing some many things at once. But I disagree. I rather like to focus on one thing at a time. Like she would be reading the newspaper while watching TV, or she would paint her nails while she watches her shows. To me, I like things to be simple. So I like to do one thing at a time.

I feel like if we don’t focus on just one thing at a time, we no longer stay in the moment of what we are actually doing. To me, multi-tasking is a lie. I feel like the more we spend time doing more than one thing, than we aren’t being mindful. And then because you weren’t focusing on the task at hand, you think, did I do this? Did I remember to lock the door?

When you are working on a task, you should just pour your passion and stamina into that task. Don’t let anything else lose your concentration, or distract you from what you are working on.

Today, I will only work on one task at a time. It is important for our brains to focus on one task at a time. If we multitask than we not only jumble our thoughts and emotions, but we also lose our ability to mindful about the task at hand.

Fuel Your Passion

Don’t let your fears hold you back from your true desires. You are born to do great things. Keep on fueling your fire of greatness. Never let someone put out your fire, or even yourself for that matter. Everyone can achieve their goals, if they keep on working towards them, and never give up.

Keep on moving forward, even if it is small baby steps. Any forward progress is still progress.

Wilted Roses

Love is a rose.
Before it blooms it is seen as
something pure and so innocent.
For others the rose buds quickly,
for others they sprout slowly.

Regardless how and when they bloom,
there’s no denying
the passion
was breathtaking.

Roses are like the royalty
of all the flowers.
They need to be
treated as such.

Rose petals are soft
and delicate.
Thus needed to be handled
with care and
compassion.

The petals begin to
fall.
The rose becomes bare,
but it’s still beautiful.

Roses are known
to be short lived.
Only a few
have a magic touch
to prolong their lifespan.

To love a rose,
and to be in love.
one must be aware of its thorns
piercing trough their soul.

Petals begin to fade away,
but that doesn’t mean
things can’t blossom
again.
