Just The Way Things Are

Self-belonging needs

validation and respect

mutually shared.

Being connected

becoming uncommonly

rare in the real time.

Sustaining friendship

through social media are such

a blessing these days.

Fleeting happiness

lives longer in memory.

and ever lasting.


TOP 10 DO’s

This is my list on how to function at the most optimum state of being:

  • Drink a glass of water half an hour after waking up in the morning
  • Pray or meditate to refocus and be grateful for a new day- also choose one thing to improve on such as not drinking too much coffee
  • Go for a quick walk and breathe in the cool morning air
  • Take a cold shower for a refreshing start (Malaysia is pretty warm these days, so I usually skip the water heater)
  • Get dressed in something comfortable (not scratchy and sweaty) but chic enough to go anywhere or be seen by anyone
  • Have a cup of piping hot coffee to rev up the brain 
  • Spend at least an hour on my own or with like minded adult- away from the adorable but distracting kids
  • Be inspired by reading thoughtful posts on social media 
  • Laugh at the funnies and share them with others
  • Drink more piping hot coffee or tea or chocolate (and water of course) to stay sane and in the game

So, how do you keep it together when life is one long winding road? Care to share?
