The morning after a long day, especially on a Friday night, knowing that the next day is the weekend and we can just do about anything in the world to take us away from the last 5 days of work, late nights and everything.
I find myself drifting in and out of sleep last night, probably cause I am out of home (specifically at a guesthouse somewhere in Penang Island), air-con was cold, mozzies we just being vampires on us through out the night, and I thought that I’ve had purchased a can of spray to rid of them!
It was a struggle, but I managed to get myself off the bed, into a pair of trousers, a flattened out my bed hair, and head down to the concourse for breakfast. Nothing lavished was served just toast (just had bread cause the toaster ain’t working) and coffee, that would work for now, for me to ease into the new day.
Now that you have just finished reading the first 3 short paragraphs of my morning thus far, for my Saturday Morning reflections, well… here it goes.
Starting out a new job, new band release of our new single and soon to release EP in April and travelling, has got me thinking a lot about my life. I can say that my personal life has been pretty decent, great family, financially getting along pretty alright, personal life: I am always on repair to work on myself, great bunch of close friends whom I care about, this year, on I want to spend time with those who really matters in my life and equally respect me for who I am. Screw those who don’t they are just a waste of my time.
A couple of things that I want to make things different of my current “work-in-progress” of my 2014. Living life to it’s utmost fullest.
Keeping things real. That’s one thing that I have been doing towards the end of the year onwards. It’s always important that we are realistic about each situation we are in, in making goals or to tackle problems that we face. You will end up in disappointment and let yourself down, or in a work or group situation, you don’t want to be like ” I knew it”, when it’s already too late. Fix it, look at the situation holistic, try predict and interpret every move and things that may go wrong before leaping on to anything, so that when things go well, you know that it was successful and when things go bad, you have already know. Couple of situations like this arised recently, guess in a group it is not easy to decide and work things out, compromise, but well, we can always learn from situations like that in a group. Though I have given pre-warning, well… we will learn next time. Sometimes things may turn out well despite hitting up the problems that you foresee, for everyone it can be improved next time to not let it occur again.
There is only one life, live the most of it. Yes, last year everyone was like ‘YOLO’ for every situation. The world has came to a point where there are so many bad things happening, the economy, poverty, crime rates, natural disasters and etc. Well, hate to say this but yes, we should have some point have a phrase like ‘YOLO’ in our lives to make the best out of life in every situation. Regardless of believes, we would never know but to be assured that there will be another life? Eternal life after death in this world? We can only trust something that gets us going in this life, and for now, live for every moment in everything to make life the best journey that you can get out of it before we move on to other adventures in life. Conquer your life. Do more in life. Live your life.
Be who you wanna be. Being in the places that I have worked in the past and learning from mentors, ex-bosses and working with many different people, that’s the best and great things that I love about my job where I am able to work with various different people. One thing I have learnt that makes the successful where they are and how they got to “I am on top of the world!”. The magic happens here: WORK ON YOUR PASSION. Wherever you are, or at whatever ranking you are at, you are always working towards your passion. It may not happen now, but it will happen if you work towards it. I believe that when one has not reached the ideal state of life you wanna be or work on your passion and be able to sustain out of this, I believe that God has somethings that he wants you to work on, to learn from, to build and strengthen upon, so that when you are ready and at the prime to make your passion happen, you will have the smoothest ride of your life living your dream and passion to the ultimate satisfaction and success, and anything that comes against your way, you will be able to overcome any hurdles coming your way.
I have made this vague for one reason cause I want this to relate to you as much as it has been working for me, I want you guys to know that you are the maker of every situation that you are in, you are in control cause God placed you there for a reason and for you to find the reason for yourself of why God placed you there to find the meaning of every thing in life to make your life of purpose be fulfilled yesterday, today and tomorrow. Because if you didn’t already realise it, this is the one life we have, that we know for sure.
Conquer your life. Do more in life. Live your life.
