Thoughts

Post on LinkedIn; Then and now picture- a little girl sitting on a farm and grown-up version wearing a suit at UN

Conclusion- we should all aim for office jobs wearing suits because that is the glamorous lifestyle 

But is it really glamorous?

Then why do we spend weekdays wearing formal office clothes and weekends running to the woods looking for so-called simple pleasures? Isn`t it ironic that we slave away daily and spend that money looking for simple pleasures?

How come no one gets the irony of this?

contentment?

The things about getting older is you stop spending time on things that no longer serve you. Even friendships!!! I realized that most (almost all) of those friendships were no longer in the path so to speak. I no longer wanna sit and hear gossip or other nonsense.

There was a time that I thought I should have a lot of friendships, but I'm fully content going to places alone.

I feel fully content all of a sudden.

Hey What's New?

Why do people keep asking that question?

'What's new with you?'

I can understand if it's a way of trying to make conversation but then again, I find it slightly annoying. Then I worked through my annoyed feelings and got to the root cause (more on that spiritual work on another post), and I started replying 'everyday is new' .


So...what's new with you?     What are you up to these days?      Have you tried pineapple fries? :D

I did try pineapple fries from kottulabs. It was SOOO good!

Feel good series

Got sick after a while..well I'm pretty sure it's because I had way too much sugar and junk food.

Anyway watching the Good Witch certainly lifted my spirits.

Hallmark Channel is such a blessing to humanity...don`t you think?

Retiring from 9-5

After (being forced to) retire from 9-5, I now spend my days blissfully at home hanging out with my cat. Having mental breakdowns by having thoughts like ' how am I gonna survive' and 'what am I gonna do with my life?' and 'you have two postgraduate degrees and ended up staying at home' have subsided......

I finally surrendered into what I really dreamt of doing with my time here on earth. Few months ago, I was stuck in useless meetings listening to useless talks for hours (we all have been to those meetings that should have been an email). I always wanted to spend my time to dive deep into spiritual teachings, learn more about life, meaning, and understand concepts like enlightenment.

Its amazing the amount of time you get (which I wan`t prepared for or anticipate) when you don`t spend 60 hours trapped in a building. I am no longer impatient with sudden visitors,I now take ample time to answer my little nephew who always has a million questions and best of all, I have slowed down and literally learnt to breathe and enjoy each moment.

If this is what 'retirement' is after 60, well I am more than happy to be 'retired' in my 30's.

I am now slowly getting my head back in the game, working on my start-up and focusing on writing.

Rain

After what seemed like the hottest months I have ever experienced, finally the rain is here! Well for the past couple of days it rained at night, but today, it rained in the morning! There's something about the rain and the cold wind it brings that brings calmness and a feeling of 'life is good'. I have always loved gloomy weather, I even watch TV series that are shot in rain forests with gloomy weather and creepy islands :D

Thank you universe for this wonderful day that started off with just the right amount of rain.

Hope everyone else is enjoying the rain as much as I am!

Retired !

Jan turned out to be a bit more dramatic than I thought. Ended up quitting my job before I found another one, something I thought I'd never do. But here's the thing, I always wanted to retire in my mid 30s. When you really want something the entire universe helps you to get it. I didn`t win the lottery, but adopted a minimalist lifestyle. See for a while I have been a bit overwhelmed by the going to work- being in cubicle prison - buying clothes to go to work - spending time on the road - not having time to read or learn - spending weekends doing household work - hating sunday because of Monday blues vicious cycle for a while. Long story short, I'm at home now. Took a while to really tell myself that 'I'm not a failure to stay at home with two masters degrees', that 'I'm gonna be ok', 'its ok to take a breather and cut back on expenses', 'to relax'.

Gradually I realized what I really needed.........Freedom

And now I'm in heaven.


P.S.hopefully the next post won`t be 'what the hell was I thinking quitting my job? :D "
