“Don’t let your reflection on the whole sweep of life crush you. Don’t fill your mind with all the bad things that might still happen. Stay focused on the present situation and ask yourself why it is so unbearable and can’t be survived.”
When we think of communication, we often think about having good listening skills and effective speech. We’re talking about saying the right words that matches our thoughts, being direct, being honest, and exchanging ideas through words. There is another part to communication that we often fail to put into practice. I’m talking about observation. Our body is both a transmitter and a receiver of data, information, and even matter. We absorb them through various parts of body and send them back through other passages. We take in air through our nose and sometimes release breath through that same passage or our mouth. We take in food through our mouth and release waste when it’s time to go. We take in information in the form of sound through our ears and process it in our brain to understand what we are being told. However, we also take in information through our eyes by the means of observation, and as much as we may think we are making good usage of our eyesight, the process of observation sometimes isn’t practiced at its optimum.
“Let Fate find us prepared and active. Here is the great soul – the one who surrenders to Fate. The opposite is the weak and degenerate one, who struggles with and has a poor regard for the order of the world, and seeks to correct the faults of the gods rather than their own.”
- Seneca, MORAL LETTERS, 107.12
In my many years on this world, I have finally realized that having my daily me time, keeps me and everyone else sane. I know it may sound vain or selfish but trust me, it is not. Perhaps we all need to be vain. The only person who will need what you need to be happy is you. If you are happy with you or in your life, it is difficult to show true happiness for others. They do say happiness come from the inside. Also you can’t truly love others until you love yourself first. Unfortunately, it has taken me year to know what this really mean. Once I have realized this, I discovered how important it is to me and my life. As it should become an important part of you life too. This is the best way to ensure you have the energy to be there for family and friends. Without it is easy to get burnt out and then chaos can happen.
So far the year 2020 has proven to be a year of uncertainty
The world is waiting for a change. The hunger right now for change is everywhere more like than we ever imagine in history. The change start when you decide you going to work hard, it does matter who you are, you can do it to help make this change possible today and forever. In addition, do not be afraid to ask for the help when you need it, because we often forget that we need each other because of our pride. After all we all are searching for the same satisfaction in life. It does not matter if you black, white yellow do not matter your color. We want to be heard, accept, have shelter, and meet our basics needs. We may see the way to fulfill these needs differently, but at the end we are looking for the same result.
I love learning— it's such a glorious process of discovering new ways to express and experience life. The world is so delightfully complex, it feels like there's never enough hours in a day to dig to the bottom of every rabbit hole that I come across. How long would it take me to count to a thousand on both hands using binary digits? Will we ever know with certainty whether or not the universe is infinite? Why do we park on driveways and drive on parkways? The world may never know.
Growing up, you dream about what your life will be like. You think about the job you will have, the house you will live in, the person you will marry and spend the rest of your life with. We also think about the jobs we will have the all the money and success we want to have. Well, here's a story of three man who have dreamed those exact dreams and are living the lives they have always wanted. There's just one small, tiny little catch. There's someone lurking in the corner of their dreams that they hadn't noticed before. Someone who doesn't want these three men to be the success they are. Mean and evil, he will stop at nothing to make sure the dreams of these three men, die.
All around the globe we are all going through change yet again. Earlier in the year we all had to face tremendous change with lockdown and now as many of us are slowly coming out of lockdown, we face another transition of trying to live a new way of living, still respecting the safety measures in place, but also trying to bring back some kind of normality to our life again.
“To have the youngster talking nonsense Zeno said, ‘The reason why we have two ears and only one mouth is so we might listen more and talk less.’ “ - Diogenes Laertius, Lives Of Eminent Philosophers, 7.1.23
In trying times like these where sometimes it feels like we can’t see the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, its easy to fall into a drought. We can all agree that this isn’t the most ideal situation: Working from home, studying from home, waking up and remaining in the same spot for what seems like forever. I get you, it’s not easy.
