Hi there lovelies. I don’t know about you guys but the past two months have been one emotional roller coaster ride.
Have you guys ever felt that way like you just can’t deal with all of the ”stuff ” that life throws at you sometimes? Everything becomes so difficult and burdensome and a downright chore. How do you cope when feeling like you can’t? What are some of the ways you stay motivated when life gets you down?
I have been having problems with a friend who I think is a complete jerk. I’ve tried to be mature about it but can’t help being angry everytime I see him and consumed by negative emotions. I get upset when someone use bad words for me. What should be my reaction at that time?
Anybody can become angry – that is easy, but to be angry with the right person and to the right degree and at the right time and for the right purpose, and in the right way – that is not within everybody’s power and is not easy.
But as Aristotle said – it’s not about getting angry, it’s about getting angry in the right way. And in most situations, keeping your cool is better for you, and produces better results.
Anger was really driving me crazy but now i am managing it a bit .You are sure to bump onto difficult people/situations then it’s helpful to take a deep breath and detach yourself physically / mentally from the situation. Continue reading
*Warning this post may contain moments of rambling. My thoughts decided to have a tennis match in my head today. LOL
Sometimes in life, you have to disobey the rules. Now I don’t mean that laws that govern us and dictate how not to be a horrible human being. Although history has shown some of these same very rules, and laws have discriminated and disadvantaged several individuals. If that is not proof enough that we should not blindly follow certain rules, I don’t know what is. I am specifically speaking about the ”rules ” as perceived by others.
Now I must admit I am quite stubborn and do not take orders very well . Especially ones I do not agree with. Just ask my last two managers; Managers just love opinionated workers don’t they? Continue reading
How many of you guys out there have been guilty of settling? Raise your hands. I have been guilty of this far too many times. Remember when you were younger and your mother said not to touch the hot stove and you did ?. Sometimes you know better but hey you do things anyway.
Is it laziness? Is it a feeling not being good enough? Why do we settle?
My interpretation of settling is simple. It means putting up with less than you deserve. When you entertain people, thoughts, emotions and circumstances that are not aligned with your true beliefs or goals. Basically, things that have no positive effect on personal growth.
After a little self-reflection, I have determined three reasons why I have settled in the past and what I have learnt. Let me know if you can relate. Continue reading
Hi, there lovelies … Happy and blessed Sunday to all of you beautiful souls!
Something about Sundays reverberates quiet reflection for me. For some it is a day of worship, for others, it just screams fun in the sun. If you are lucky you have the day off from work. Whatever your Sunday entails; how about you ask yourself today, What can I do to make life better for me? Be totally selfish. You deserve it. Somehow our souls always have the answers, we know what needs to be done but yet we often times feel guilty about saying no or maybe just disappearing for a few hours for a recharge.
Take a few minutes today to do something that brings you joy. Absolutely no excuses. Even if it is just buying yourself an ice cream cone and pretending that you are a toddler again with not a care in this world. Simply reflect on this past week and what made it great, even if it wasn’t so great to use your imagination it can lead you to some wonderful places. Continue reading

Over the weekend (31th March – 1st April) my teammates and I, took part in the IFS Bandung Open 2018 (National Inline Freestyle Championship). We were all representing the Inline Skate Semarang. The competition took place in Saparua Park & Sports Center, Bandung. There were teams from all of Indonesia taking part; there were teams from Lampung, Bengkulu, West Java, East Java, DIY Yogyakarta, DKI Jakarta, Palembang, and many more. We won some second places and third place. I was the eldest in senior women category to compete. Overall, I had a wonderful weekend. Enough, I don’t want to talk about skating, let’s talk about ‘age’ since I was the eldest in my category.

Life is full of craziness. So amidst the craziness, take a little time to give yourself a happiness boost. ♥
1. Work out. I know that it sounds counterproductive, but trust me- it will make you feel better once you get past the exhaustion. And remember, to quote the wonderful Elle Woods- “Exercise releases endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. Happy people don’t kill their husbands.” Hahaha…. Exercise, folks. Give your self-control a boost.
2. Write. Anything you want- just write. Write a journal entry, a poem, even an Instagram caption. Just get some words off your chest. You’ll feel lighter. Continue reading
It’s so good to be back!
I am sorry guys for being inactive these days. Sometimes I feel like my life is a crazy whirlwind and I’m flying through the centre of it.
I’m a perfectionist, though not a very perfect one. I have standards and high expectations for myself in most areas of my life, and while they instigate action and are a source of motivation, they somehow tell me that I’ll never be happy until I’ve reached those goals. I must be in a state of constant unrest until I have completed the ten thousand hours, achieved a certain grade, or am earning a certain amount. My soul can never relax or be at peace because my surroundings are not the impeccable picture of my highest desires. Continue reading
This is a loooonnnggg post so I would’nt urge you to read it through to the end.
I’ve taken numerous “personality tests” in the past 3 years. Yesterday, I took a personality test through 16 Personalities. It was free and took about 12 minutes to fill out. To be honest, I was skeptical! I struggled to select an answer on some of the questions because “what about those ‘what if’ situations”!! I was also unsure if they could REALLY tell me ALL about my personality through a simple test… Giiirrlll was I wrong!!
This personality test was SPOT ON, friends!!! It NAILED me – my weaknesses, my strengths, my relationships… it was so accurate that, as the website says, “it was a little bit creepy”!!
Not only was the test interesting to take, but I thoroughly enjoyed reading all the details about my personality type. I found it VERY informative and helpful! It hit the nail on the head with my weaknesses and also offered constructive advice for how to avoid those pitfalls. It was also reassuring to hear that areas I feel are my strengths, ARE my strengths! I was also able to read about what career paths people with my personality type tend to have, and understand a little bit more about WHY those career paths are beneficial for my personality type.

For the last few months, I’ve tried to focus on myself and improving who I am in order to be a better wife and a better person for myself. I’m thankful that I have seen the progress that I’ve made, but there are also those days that I feel that among all those steps I have taken forward, I take twice as many back.
Even if it seems like you had a hard day – give yourself credit for adulting and celebrate the little things. Y’know what? Sometimes, life sucks. If there’s one thing that has really hit home for me last week, it’s that life is always going to throw challenges at you. Your power is in how you choose to respond to those challenges.
As women, society has told us that we need to “having it all.” We need to have that power-hungry drive in order to excel in our corporate careers. We should want kids and be able to spend enough time with our family so they grow up, and bla bla bla…. Continue reading
Lots of people says recently to never love your company. Don’t love it because it may not love you back and bla bla bla. That kind of sense that I fail to understand. I just can’t get the point why shouldn’t we love the company where we work? How can’t we love the company we work for?
I have so many reasons why we MUST love our company.
For starter, we spend at least 8 hours a day in that place, at least 5 days a week. How does it feel to spend that much amount of time in a place that you hate? It must feel like hell!
Second, we earn a living from the job provided by our company. Don’t you feel like dating or marrying a guy just for his money with no love included?
And the most important thing is that we learn and we grow during our tenures in our companies. I don’t know if it’s you, but to me, the companies I’ve worked has really made me who I am today. The ups and downs has made me wiser, the experiences has made me skillful, and the chances I’ve got has discovered the competence that I never thought I had in me. How can’t I love something that has given all of that good things into my life? Continue reading
