The Internet is Made of People — Connect

Since this lockdown started, I’ve noticed myself connecting more with people on Facebook than last year combined. Yes, I am now a chat person! — which is funny because I don’t encourage people chatting through Facebook as it feels inauthentic. And I kind of dislike scrolling because it makes us unproductive (and unhappy), sometimes. But now, … Continue Reading →

 

Positivity, Hope, and Faith

For the past two weeks, almost everyone I talked to were curious when this pandemic crisis would end. A month? Two months? Three? Who knows. This is beyond our control. But I’m sure everyone wanted to resume life to normal. Who doesn’t want to? What saddens me the most is the number of people consumed … Continue Reading →

 

Focus on What Matters Now

Love. Kindness. Generosity. Empathy. Hope. Optimism. Faith. These are the things that matter most right now amid the pandemic crisis (March 2020). And we have to sharpen our focus on what truly matters. Every single day. We’re all in this together. Ask yourself what you can do right now to make a difference. Spread positivity … Continue Reading →

 

You Are Not There Yet, Keep Going

Less Consumption, More Action

2019 was a busy year for me. I started learning new skills. I spent more time outside my comfort zone. I challenged myself in ways I could have never imagined. There was a lot of action and I couldn’t be more proud of myself. It’s hard. But to my surprise, I got used to it. … Continue Reading →

 

Some Problems You Think Are Not Actually Problems

I find it strange how our minds operate. We label some things as problems, yet in real life, there’s nothing really catastrophic about it. Here are a few examples: Internet is down for a week. Annoying neighbors’ pets. Relatives keep asking for money. Inconsiderate boss/co-workers. Clients not following the agreement. Friends not doing well in … Continue Reading →

 

Slow Down, You’re Not in a Race

The trend is to be successful at a young age. To become a millionaire before 30. And to achieve all the things we want a lot faster than everyone else. If you’d ask me how, I don’t really know. But for sure, that sounds like a lot of hard work. Real hard work. And for … Continue Reading →
