LSS = Mood

News! My friends and I are planning to put up a communal blog—to share the blog load, 🙂 We want to fill it up with things that interest us, and hopefully other people will be interested  to read it too.

2016 is treating me well, so far. There’s the usual stress brought from 2015, but so far, so good. We finished the training sessions for BAVI for Cagayan De Oro, Zamboanga, and Davao these past few weeks. The boyfie is kinda missing the travel. I’m liking the fact that I get to park my butt for a while.

My HPL is going to be happening in 2 weeks, and I’m a bit apprehensive with that– I’m always extremely OC about things that I have to organize, so I’m going to plan and prepare as much as I can to accomplish that.

One new thing that’s been happening — Training. It’s in my life! I’ve been assisting in some teambuilding sessions, co-facilitating with the boyfriend, and observing a presentation skills workshop. How awesome is it to help people? I love it. And I’m just hoping that I get enough knowledge and ability to learn how to do that, as well as the people that I’ve been privileged enough to watch. What a gift!

I’ve been wanting to do this for a few years now, and I finally took a course on training design last year, and I just took a course in facilitation the last two days. I plan to take a storytelling/writing course this coming summer, I hope my schedule permits and it all works out. I’ve got a hopefully correct learning plan and I hope interesting things happen along the way.

That said, I aim to balance everything out — 3 businesses, learning a new skill, toastmasters responsibilities(possibly a contest), the new blog, storytelling to kids, and writing on the online news portal. I also want to go surfing so very badly that I dream about it already. Delayed gratification is what’s pushing me forward, and it also helps that I enjoy what I do– from managing the farm to writing the articles — I love them all.

Somethings need to re-align again, like my fitness and my health. I got sick recently, and I really think it’s because my body was rebelling with all the stuff that I’ve been eating– which were mostly yummy, and mostly sugary. I plan to give up dessert for lent, with some exceptions– mostly if it’s my job to taste something. Sounds like a plan, right? Right.

Okay, so I’m updating this because I just heard the new Santigold song, and it was love at the first line of “All I wanna do is what I do well”, so that’s what I want to do — all I want to do is to do well. I wish life was as simple as this song portrays it to be, but life is not without its challenges, but that’s life, and yeah, everybody needs a bit of self-confidence and self-belief. I need it especially facing how many things I don’t know yet.

I wrote this post to remind me that I really should be my biggest fan, AND critic. While I fear about being able to fulfill all my responsibilities, and failing to learn and grasp new things as fast as I want, I should also fight back with the belief that I have the capability to achieve all that I plan.
“I’m my biggest fan and I can’t get enough”

thirty-three

I was supposed to post this when I turned thirty-three, but I forgot to do it with all the goings-on that day.

The dream years ago when I first heard this was that when I turn thirty-three, I would listen to this and I would figure out how my life is going. It would be like I was talking to myself and if I would hear this and feel happy, then I would know that I’m doing good.

Listening to it today, and I’m getting a bit teary-eyed… in happiness. 🙂

I’m good.

Thank you God, the universe, and everyone around me (and not around me) for the last thirty-three years.

And you can make it last, forever you
You can make it last, forever you”
