Secret to a happy life:

Assume nothing.

merry month

Life is a gift
but it comes with an unknown expiry date.

Let's bring happy thoughts
and happy memories all the time.

Life is short...
choose what's good,
what's kind and what's pleasing to our Lifegiver.

Time is gold.
Life is fleeting.
Make every moment count.

In other words,
start studying for your final exams
if you haven't yet

thanksgiving thoughts

it always pays to check if your moves are appropriate,
polite and in accordance to what the world needs. . .

anything fancy and fleeting should never be chosen
over actions which builds character and
concern for nature and humanity.

do not always equate quality goods and services
with high prices.
do not settle too for emotional battery
nor risky work environment for a perceived good output.

think about creativity, initiative, servant~leadership
and integrity of creation.
be strong enough to admit mistakes.
be brave enough to change for the better.

do not be afraid of failure ...
be afraid of "success without substance".

relative pay

when i started working at jollibee,
i receive 14.75 per hour.
even before that,
i always knew that time is valuable.
it was just better
to have numbers to back that up...

how much (time/money)
will we earn/waste today?

do not not do

when you're feeling down
it's taking you so long to get up and move,

just think about (among others)
the tasks left undone,
the praises for teammates left unsaid,
the people still unhelped,
the items in your bucket list
that needs to be accomplished.

Donald Shimoda: 
Here's a test to find out
if your mission on Earth is finished: 
If you're still alive, it isn't.

oh ghost reminder

do not deprive yourself
of some quality "me time".

there'd be times you'd need to unwind,
destress, or chillax
however you wish to call it.
let it bring you acceptance and grounding,
clarity and stillness.

after all,
you need to have a good supply of those.
you cannot give what you do not have.
