Love…Priorities


“The heart is the ruler of the body and the master of one’s spirit and intelligence. It issues orders, but it takes orders from nothing: it restrains itself, it employs itself; it lets itself go; it takes itself in hand; it makes itself proceed; it makes itself stop.”

Priorities and opinions are so susceptible that possessing empathy and open-mindedness makes life less confusing. But each day brings challenging, new experiences, making me question everything I know especially when love is involved. Which brings me to the question; does love change a person?

Love comes in many ways (be it family, friendship or romance) and it's quite interesting to see how your priorities fluctuate when new love comes into your life. It's funny how life has made these unexpected twists and turns, whether it’s the arrival of a new baby that changes your perspective on life OR a new love that comes along and changes every little thing that you do, that cause you to reflect on the value of everyday living. Love of a person tends to cause one to modify their priorities or perception on issues just to please the other, whether it’s agreed upon or done discreetly.

Desperately Seeking Motivation...



“If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself but to your own estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment.”

A person's motivation is a combination of desire and force directed at achieving a certain goal or task. Yet, in my case it seems like I’ve lost all motivation in completing a certain task whether it’s helping out or just being there. It’s quite easy to get de-motivated by negative things or actions, yet I have to keep thinking positive and focus on the greater picture. I know I can always blame the weather or other external situations in my life, but I guess it’s up to me to find motivation…

Something To Think About: What are some things that help in getting you motivated?

Personal Notes:
- Agent B: I too can make a great cheese sandwich :p
- Vicini: How’s the tanning session coming along ;)
- 3ash Wagif: Don’t forget to watch the game today!
- Cayenne: hmmm, next time you're better off staying in Kuwait ;) and why is it always my fault :p
- S: The whole point of the headset is to decrease the risk of having an accident but in your case I guess it’s just not working out..lol :p
- Sindus: Can’t believe this day has come, not that we’re not happy for ya but we just can’t come to terms with the idea of you moving out :(
- Noodles: array, why you living in suffering..lol :)
- Chef & Cheeks: uhm, what’s Plan B ;)

- Manchester United: Best of luck today! when returning from Moscow, don't forget to get the ECL cup with ya ;)...GO RED DEVILS!!

Quitting is not an option...



“Winners are not those who never fail, but those who never quit”

Ever feel like why bother? What’s the point? Why don’t I just quit?...Of course you do, everyone does at some time or another. But feeling like quitting isn’t quitting!

Something To Think About: What would you do in these situations?

Personal Notes:
- Agent B: Amazing suprise!! We missed u!! Now the job is to keep you here as long as possible :p
- Vicini: I had a dream of you driving that vintage corvette..lol..I hope your not still thinking of that car :p
- 3ash Wagif: When do we get invited to poker night :p
- Sindus: I can't believe how time is flying, wish we can stop time so that you wouldn't have to go :)
- Cayenne: Do I still have to follow the 1 message rule here too :p...You still didn't answer my question regarding spending too much time thinking ;)
- Chef & Cheeks: Your barbeque dinners is taking its toll on the scale :/
- Bro: Before you quit, try!...The only person who's putting pressure on you is yourself, so snap out of it!
- Noodles: 1 more month and you'll be done, so work hard :p
- S: There's no backing out now ;)
