Another Day,  Another Move

So much going on in my life recently I wanted to share an update for anyone who still reads this blog. First of all, we are moving. Goodbye Japan, Hello Germany. We got transferred to the Europe division which means Germany will be our new home. For now. I don’t know about you but I am not a material person. One thing I absolutely love about moving is purging. One thing I have learned in my life is transition and I do it pretty well. For me it is easy to let go of material possessions but hard as hell for me to let go of memories and my...

Wake Up and Be Awesome *Explicit

Wake Up and Be Awesome *Explicit

From this day forth, your goal should be the most f#cking awesome person you can imagine being. Sadly, there are many who go about living day by day more asleep than awake. So I am asking you now to wake up and be awesome. What’s great about being awesome is that it’s totally subjective to what you define as awesome. You don’t have to care about the ways I consider to be awesome and I don’t have to like yours.  Agree to disagree. The only judge is you and do you like yourself more than you did yesterday? If so, congrats! You are on your way...

Defining Success, Redefining Life

Everybody wants to be successful in their life, but many few reach what they define as success. I have never believed in luck, instead I believed in action. Success is the reflection of your action. There are people who want to grow high and have the so called ambition, but lacks in effort to work for it. I always say that dreams are important for life. Dreaming actually urges you to walk an extra mile if you take action on the dreams. Success is just the conversion of actually working towards your dreams. Do whatever you love to do. The...

Did You Forget to Say Thank You?

How often do you say “thank you” in a day? Did you remember to say thank you to the lady who packed your groceries at the checkout counter? Did you remember to say thank you to the stranger who held the elevator door for you at work?   Since preschool, we have been taught to always say “thank you” to people who lent a hand or has given us something. At times when we forgot, our mothers would scold us because we have been impolite. However, “thank you” goes beyond good manners and right conduct. “Thank you” are among the most powerful...

How to Create a Balanced Life

Drowning in a pool of responsibilities, it is easy to lose balance of our lives. With various daily tasks at work, school or home, we tend to end the day wishing we had a couple more hours.   Imagine life as a balance scale. The one side holds our careers or academics. The other side carries our family, fitness, interests and others. Too often, our scales are heavier on one side than the other. Some people spend most of their time working on their high powered jobs or on their degrees and too little time for other aspects of their life,...

Lies and Excuses You Tell Yourself

Basically, excuses are just lies that we tell ourselves as we try to evade unpleasant realities. We often convince ourselves that these lies and excuses are valid but as long as we give in to them, we can never escape the grasps of denial. Instead of facing reality, we run away from it and that is not the right way to live. We cannot just simply escape our lives thinking that our challenges will just go away on its own. We have to get past these lies and excuses and fearlessly confront our issues.   To overcome these lies and excuses, we...
