Time is now

I always worry about wasting time

I always rush to get something done quickly

I set a goal and set a time for myself to reach that goal in the shortest time possible

There is no time for slowing down

Life is quick

Life is hectic

Life is a journey to the death

My view is set in the future

I never see the moment of now

I never know how to treasure the precious things that are happening right now

I never have time for happily living in the present

Until now 🙂

Happy ending – joke for Thursday

Zen, you look so angry and confused, what happened?

I am very angry with all this happy ending stories that we keep telling kids,

something like “… they get married and live happily ever after!”

Great! majority of the kids believe this, until one day they make their own fairy tales

2 under 2 year old toddlers crying, daddy is going to be late today, work is busy as ever

Alright, mom will do the drop off and pick up the kids,

Never mind the sleepless nights these days because one toddler got bad coughing at night and demand the whole family to join the night party

Some career progress and promotion is compromised because family priorities are on the plate

Zen is climbing up the life ladder and the big wind keeps blowing Zen backwards,

Then she keeps hearing this, never give up, keep on doing what you love,

It’s all become white noise in her ears, like blah blah blah …

Quiet day

It is necessary to have a quiet day for self relaxation and self reflection

It is a minimalist day amongst many maximalist days where you didn’t have time for yourself, and just busy with everything in life

It is a detox day to clean away all the sadness and burden in your head, to come out clean and fresh for new ideas and new days to come

A minimalist day when all you need to do is do nothing, plan nothing , just watch the day go by, or doing only things that bring love and happiness and self satisfaction

When the pace of life gets hectic, just one day to slow down, to look back and recharge the body and mind

In a hectic life, take a moment to stop and revaluate everything you have right now, what you want in the future and what you can leave behind

In a hectic life, there are moments when you can still find and enjoy the beauty of life ; and never forget that life is meant to be beautiful and for us to enjoy, not to suffer

Don’t forget to have a minimalist day once in a while

Life is beautiful

Even though sometimes it felt like there were only darkness

Even though at times you kept failing no matter how hard you tried

There were days when you felt you were all alone even though your loved one is right there

Just find your breath , keep breathing, you will find a clear mind

Just find your hope, keep it alive and don’t loose courage

Just like dark clouds will disappear in the end

Only the blue sky to reveal, it’s always there, it never goes away.

Don’t give up before you see the blue sky , reach your success, and fulfil your life purpose

Minimalist life

It is not a rose bouquet

It is not luxury

It is not shopping heaven

It is not the limelight

It is nothing to do with abundance

It is all about less

Less worries

Less nonsense

Less materialist

Less wasting time

It is all about more

More freedom

More quality time

More yourself

More meaningful

Forever young

This man is 65 year old. He has got cancer for 13 year, and now the cancer is in the final stage.

He is on a reality talent show, he started dancing 3 year ago when he met his dancing partner, and also his girlfriend since.

He is still glowing with big smile on his face all the time

On the TV show, he wants to remind us, the younger generation that

  • it is never too early to look after your health, one day you could probably use the money you work hard to earn, to pay for your hospital bill
  • follow what you love doing, dancing can heal your soul , your body, let you enjoy life, and forget about the physical pain if you have cancer
  • don’t forget to be always optimistic, because you always can find someone who will make your life become magical

Treasure your life as you never know when it will end

Start your day with a clear head

There are hundreds of small and big decisions we each have to make every day

Life is a string of multiple decision making process, and success or failure matter is entirely based on the multiple decisions we make each day

Start with the morning alarm, wake up or snooze, the first decision

Set a happy or grumpy mood for the day, another decision to make

Go to work or stay in, have breakfast or skip it, kiss goodbye to your loved one or Not, another decision to make…

Skip lunch, skip having a walk for fresh air, skip the yoga class

Forget to say thank you and feel thankful for everything in life

Forget to be relax and happy at home after a busy day out and about

All the tiny decisions make up a day, and many days make up a life

DON’T forget to make happy decision for ourselves and people we care about

Have a great and happy day!

Calm Saturday evening

We went out in the early afternoon, bought all the necessities for the kids, favourite food and snacks for the family.

We got home at 5pm, sat down and enjoy all the favourite things we bought earlier.

No more housework or chores to do. I put my feet up and listen to my favourite music.

The kids are playing with their toys and running around me, i can’t stop smiling watching them play

Little happiness and minimalist life , I wouldn’t change it for anything else

It is only 7pm, still got lots of time to enjoy the evening

Have a lovely weekend everyone

The moment of now

When you live this moment, you are moving it to the past

Leave it a peaceful past or regretful past, the decision is yours

Enjoy this moment, the next moment will come soon, there is no time in the now to worry about the future or the past

Just live with all your heart and your mind that is the best way to answer to the past and prepare for the future

Things around you keep changing and moving, keep your mind still that is how to keep your life peaceful when facing the revolving world

I spend time with the people i love, and treasure every moment of life because for me that is the best way to live life

Life is beautiful the way you make it

Anger and fire

Anger is like a great fire

It destroys everything it touches

Nothing left

Only regret

Only tears

We can control this fire

Just with a deep breath

Just by controlling our mind

Focus on the breath

Let the anger melt away

And never have to say it’s too late
