Give Something the Respect it Deserves

Everybody has heard of the old cliché of life not being about the destination but about the journey.

I have to say for my self that is not that easy. Why would we ignore the life learning adventures only to get somewhere and have no understanding or memories of how we got there?

What about self achievement?
And so stop trying to finish things off and enjoy the process. Instead If I catch my self trying to finish things off then I stop and walk away.

Doing something deserves the proper time it needs.

Flour Free Only Please

At what point do I state I don’t eat flour?

When or even why should it become common knowledge that there’s a situation?

I have seen first hand of a vegetarian who lived in a primarily meat driven society. He had problems in restaurants and with sharing foods as he could only have veggie only meals. I felt his pain.

Do I shut up or live like him?


A Strange Kind of Sympathy

I have also seen some people giving me sympathy about my lifestyle but in theory it was me that had sympathy for their poor eating. They looked at me as though I was an invalid, but compared to my health their health was worse.


Should I try to convince others to live like me? How or what could I say to them? And when does advice start to become preaching?

It’s a tough call but I always see this time as my better time.

What Inspires Us to Do the Things We Do?

I seem to speak about inspirational stuff in most of my posts about things that I’ve done or things that seem to trigger a curious streak within me but then I can ask to myself what inspires me.

I question this because it seems it’s an easy question as I write posts about similar things, but then to answer the question about what inspires me seems a lot more difficult almost the same kind question is when you have an interview so what is unique about yourself there’s also an insanely impossible question to answer maybe that is the reason

I think inspirational but what inspires me?

I read posts constantly from fellow bloggers and they have inspirational, motivational things in their lies and challenges aspirations.

So what can I do?

We all have activities, but what inspires us to do them?

  • Gardening
  • Sketches
  • Book writing
  • Travelling

I should lead more by example and not just explaining. I think this is now my inspirational moment to think of doing and not just being the teacher and so now I have a new mission as in what should what will make my inspirational journey more fulfilled.


It Can’t Rain All the Time

Control what you can as you can’t control everything.

Not everything is for us to control.

Somethings are just beyond us.

Take peace in what you do.


You Want Success? Great, Then Get Passionate!

Who ever wants success? I would say everyone, Yes?

Next question: Do you want fulfillment?

We would mostly agree as it seems a good thing to have. But our perception to be fulfilled is not as much as success. To have success without being fulfilled would leave us a little empty. So, how can we get around to obtaining more feeling?

We need engagement and energy

Passion and feeling needs to be put into what we do, otherwise, why bother? How would you feel if you have a day talking to others with clarity, trust, openness, sincerity and caring? If it sounds great, then would you be surprised if you were happy?

Care and attention leads to good growth


If you spend your life scrounging around for little wins, you will never reach a big win. We need to commit to making success and success that would be worth doing in the first place.

Take a stand and say you will enjoy what you do and it will get better. When you reach success then your fulfillment will reach new heights.


Remember, what you put in is what you get out.


10 Ways to Make Better Decisions

Too Many Decisions? Well I hope I can help you.
You would think that the older you get makes your live easier to deal with, but I have to say, categorically it doesn’t.
Experience seems to count for nothing at times. And so I would like to make a fun list of how to make a more correct decision.

My top 10 in no particular order:
1. Keep it simple. Don’t over complicate the situation.
2. Prioritize. Look at what should be done not what you can do.
3. Get an opinion. If at times you are lost then ask a friend.
4. Toss a coin. Hey, if it’s a 50-50 decision, why not? Moreover you could make a homemade dice for custom decisions.
5. Past experiences. If whatever you are facing was like before and it can help, then use it.
6. Get educated. For whatever situation you are in someone somewhere has been there before.
7. Logic touch. If you can see emotion clouding your judgement then remove it and look at it logically.
8. Take your time. Added pressure does not help so stop and take a break.
9. Do the right thing. Ask yourself honestly are you doing the right thing.
10. If all else fails then go with your gut instinct

If you listened to everyone’s comments you would never know where to turn, but I hope these can help.

So Far so Good

img_20170207_135009img_20170207_134957I am now into my second week at my new  job. I have to say the place is nice. The other teachers and workers are lovely to be with. It’s a work in progress with it being a new building. We spend a fair majority interviewing new students.

So far my previous material from teaching ESL in Korea is going to be gold here.

Hopefully this keeps going nicely.


Simple Tips to Be Prepared and Deal with the Future

I want to ask you, what really matters in life?

The reason I ask is because these days many people seem distracted and their focus in life is misguided.

The world is very materialistic and I for one have grown up in a house where there are many ornaments on shelves and in cabinets. My parents had a house that was very traditional in style. The world has changed now as the house I grew up in and the house I am now living in look nothing like each other. This is not being rebellious but more of a personal expression and a role of I see of practicality.

I did not hate the house I grew up in as it was nice, but the environment to me did not seem at all practical and more of a trophy collection. Right now for me the space I want is to be very useful. This does not mean there is no room for sentimentality, just not as a museum.

Just a thought…

When things are of more practical value, does that make them any less  in touch with what is correct in life? To be in touch with a successful way of life and have positivity does not need to be materialistic. I find it quite invigorating that my kids can come home with friends and they know where things are due to the less crazy atmosphere. It means they are in command of the space as well as me.

Be a teacher

What I’m trying to get at here is that technically we are all teachers to some degree to our friends and family around us and so they should see you in a good light. Now, if you can then address the common day problems in life that occur and you look to be successful then that’s the moment you become the teacher to others.

Being in touch with life in the eyes of others could also be attached to your health. If you look at friends and family and see that they are healthy, wouldn’t that then want to make you to follow their style? We can try to be healthy, but things happen that can affect our days. We always have good intentions, but to follow through and make those intentions stick can be a lot harder.

In Conclusion

So as we’ve addressed to have good health and to have a good home that you share with friends and family makes a good life, but does that mean that we are in touch? I would like to think so but the problems that we face every day can change that environment for us. There are many things that affect our day and that has to be acceptable as those are natural. Things happen that we cannot be ready for, but we have to be ready that our day may change.
