I have started reading Getting things done by David Allen. I really love it. It’s about organizing your life by organizing your work. Basically the question I ask myself since I have begun to read it is: “How am I going to think about big project as it is my long term career for example in next five years when I barely have time for shower having a toddler at home”.
That’s why we need a system for organizing every aspect of our life. The books promises that as soon as we have a system in place it gets easier. Because having something in mind and doing it is something different is what creates stress.
Let’s hope that after reading it, I will be more organised and less stressed and have a clear picture of what is my long term goal regarding my career. It will be a lot of work but I know it is worth it.
Beginning thirties it seems that you are too old to rediscover yourself, having to take care of your toddler, having full time job, taking care of “everything else”. Still when you read this inspiring blog post by favorite writer Paulo Coelho, everything seems possible. I like it how all the steps are very simple to follow. Read the post or here are the highlights:
1. Tell yourself the truth
2. Start slowly, but start
3. Stop slowly, but stop
4. Discover your small talents
5.Begin to choose
6.Don’t base your decisions on financial gain
7. Follow your intuition
8. Don’t be afraid to change your mind
9. Learn how to rest
10. Let things show you a happier path
11. Read the signs
12. Finally, take risks!
Good luck to you all!
When you have to make a decisions and really have looked at all the facts but still do not know what path to take…flip a coin. It is not that the coin will decide for you. But that moment when you wait for the result of the coin listen to your heart your heart will tell you what it hopes the result will be. You will know what is the path that you will take. Listen to your heart and you will really chose the path of your dreams!
I have never met you.
I have never felt you skin.
I have never seen your face.
Yet, loosing you seems like part of me is lost.
I will never forget you.
I will never forget the dreams that I had with you.
The dreams that I will not dare to dream anymore.
I just hope that someday when I think of you I will be at ease and I will not feel this sorrow that I have…
Seeing in person the very thin line between life and death is frightening. It is very good that no one knows when will the cold death come at your door. And if you have opportunity to meet and talk with people that were in that thin line you will see how they value every day and every opportunity to share that day with the ones that they love.
Value every second of the life and be whoever you want because tomorrow may be late. Tell your loved ones that you love them. Tell them often.
Cherish the life and live happily.
There is no void for you to fill.
I used to think that I need you so desperately,
Like my lungs need the air
Like the desert needs the rain.
I realized now that there is no one that I will ever need that way.
I have no void for you to fill, there is no void inside my heart, inside my soul.
If there comes a time that I will feel I have a void to fill,
You won’t be the one that I will need.
That battle I should fight myself.
You are and always will be addition to my wholeness
Only that way we can be happy.
Please remember that if I chose you, I didn’t do it to fill my void
I chose you to fulfill my wholeness, so we can celebrate the life together.
Success means doing the best we can with what we have. Success is the doing, not the getting; in the trying, not the triumph. Success is a personal standard, reaching for the highest that is in us, becoming all that we can be.
– Zig Ziglar
What time is it where you are?
You say good morning
When it’s midnight
I wake up to your sunset
And it’s drivin’ me mad
I miss you so bad
I wanna share your horizon
And see the same sun rising
Turn the hour hand back to when you were holding me.
I promise myself by Christian D. Larson
To be so strong that nothing can disturb my peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person I meet.
by Christian D. Larson
To make all my friends feel that there is something worthwhile in them.
To look at the sunny side of everything and make my optimism come true.
To think only of the best, to work only for the best and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as I am about my own.
To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful expression at all times and give a smile to every living creature I meet.
To give so much time to improving myself that I have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.
To think well of myself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud words, but in great deeds.
To live in the faith that the whole world is on my side, so long as I am true to the best that is in me.
