What is your heart conversing right now?
Whatever it is, be brave enough to start a conversation that matters.
In every life, we have some trouble.
Aint got no place to lay your head, somebody came and took your bed.
The landlord says your rent is late, he may have to litigate.
Aint got no cash, ain’t got no style, ain’t got no girl to make you smile.
Don’t worry, be happy. Don’t worry about a thing, cause every little thing is gonna be alright.
Rise up this morning, smiled with the risin’ sun. Three little birds sit by my doorstep, singin’ sweet songs of melodies pure and true, sayin’,
p style=”text-align:justify;”>Don’t worry ’bout a thing,
‘Cause every little thing is gonna be alright.
Don’t worry, be happy.
You can choose to be a DUCK or an EAGLE.
If you get up in the morning expecting to have a bad day, you’ll rarely disappoint yourself. Stop complaining.
Don’t be a duck. Be an eagle. Ducks quack and complain. Eagles soar above the crowd.
Start becoming an eagle today. One small step every week, then next week and next, and you’ll realize eventually you are no longer a duck anymore, but soaring like an eagle.
Now, you just have to choose.

Have you ever had the feeling that things get a little uninteresting, too blaring, but you can’t hardly hear, so much to think, but you can’t contemplate?
Have you ever lost your desire for something you considered adoring about?
Have you tried to ignore things that made you glad? Have you?
Lately, I lost interest in my everyday life. I feel like a zombie. I see the days as repetitive. Nothing is exciting, and there’s not a thing to make me feel excited about. I am so lazy to find the sunshine.
You might give me an answer that I have missed any inspiration. Then who and what will inspire me?
Work? A must that I should not escape.
Friends? They are not always around, they have their own lives too.
Son? He gives me a headache for the past few days.
Shopping? Each penny is counted now a days, I have to save.
Food? It gives fleeting happiness. It makes me fat.
Alcohol? It offers me only short-term black out.
Love Life? It bores me.
I definitely don’t feel inspired. Let me check tomorrow again.
3 HEALTHY HABITS
I don’t exercise. I am not enthusiastic to eat vegetables and often times I sleep less and more than 8 hours. Those 3 healthy habits are the things I really wanted to do, perhaps next year? I know I am not getting any younger and I need to change my lifestyle and protect my health.
That’s my new year’s resolution.
MY 5 CURRENT GOALS
Whoa! I never thought about this, not until today. Maybe because I don’t anticipate so much for my future goals, kind of afraid of disappointment and I am impatient to hang around. But today, I will think about it and be motivated to attain them.
So here it goes..
1. NEXT YEAR VACATION TO PHILIPPINES. There’s no place like home. I miss my family. I miss everything in there.
2. VISIT SINGAPORE AND BORACAY. I want to compensate myself after years of hard work.
3. CATCH UP AN OLD FRIENDS. I may find and meet new friends, but I can’t replace the old ones. I miss spending time with them, talking and saying “do you remember when…?” And laugh about it.
4. SALARY INCREMENT. Of course I really need it. Expenses are getting high.
5. TO BE RICH. I know this is quite impossible but who knows? By then, I can go home, take care of my son, can help others and enjoy our days.
So that’s all my current goals. Whether they are big or small, they have vast significance in my life.
Hang on to your goals!
