Only believe Words that which EMPOWERS YOU

“Don’t believe a prediction that does not EMPOWER YOU. Only believe that which EMPOWERS YOU.” – Sean Stephenson

I learned from this quote just recently. There were lots of words, events, and negativity which bothers me for years. Right after encountering these quote from Sean Stephenson, those negativity vanished one by one. And I am thankful that I am now living this quote. This helps me forgive those rude and negative people in my life (past and present). Mostly, this helps me forgive myself for believing those negative words I heard from childhood until in my present life.

I do believe I am a child of God and I must believe his words not the words of negative people. Each day is a new life and a renewal day for me, and so I am doing my best to stay positive with constant prayers. I know God has the best plans for me to be a blessing to those people around me.

When you’re lost on the hi-way, you’ve got to turn around and find the right way

It was the birthday of the daughter of my friend yesterday, and she asked me that if possible I can get one of our friends from the other city before the party and then send her back home after the party. It was just fine for me coz I love driving on the interstate. I woke up around 5:30am, prepared myself and then drove to the highway. I told myself that I will just text my friend that I am near her place when I am almost near so that she can still sleep a little coz she’s pregnant and I didn’t want her to get tired of waking up early.

I knew I set up my GPS before driving the hi-way

While driving and I was almost 9 minutes (maybe) near the exit road, my TOMTOM GPS stocked at 9 minutes, and there was no signal. But I still continued my driving hoping that my GPS will mention that I need to exit in a particular place. It won’t give me a signal, but I still continued to drive until I passed STEM Beach, Colorado, then drove to a place where I saw a windmill on the left area of the road, but I still continued to drive. Until I said to myself that I need to stop and check on my GPS when I can find an exit after turning around coz I remembered that the road I was passing was the one I drove on the way to Sand Dunes Colorado. So, I exited on a particular place, turn to the left side and stopped on the road to prepare myself going back to the northern part. When I reset my GPS, it gave me at least more than 30minutes away from my friend’s place. So I have to hurry, but I had to check on my GPS to make sure it will give me the right road so that I won’t get lost again. Until I was able to reach her place.

After I turned facing the northern part

Stopped at the side of the road to check my GPS again

On our way back I shared with her my experience. It was confusing, but I think it was for my safety and our safety in going back to Colorado Springs.

We reached my place safely at the right time coz, I have to cook some cupcakes to be brought to the party so that my kids can eat a cupcake free of eggs, peanuts, and cow’s milk.

I told myself, maybe it was just for safety that I was lost. Maybe it was not safe for me to exit on a particular place at that early time of the day. So I needed to drive past the certain place and turn around when I was safe to drive in that place. Thank God for the experience. I just love traveling sometimes. It’s refreshing to be able to see beautiful places and beautiful creations of God.

Coco the Movie at Icon Cinema VIP Seating

Photo Credits: To my friend Shirley S.

When my friend invited my kids and me to a free movie, I easily said okay to it. She said it’s in Icon Cinema VIP Seating located in D20. So on that day, we drove to that place, but we were lost because we entered the Regal Cinema Interquest first before we reached the Icon Cinema. Since the place is still not fully finished, we parked at the back. We were late for few minutes, but we were able to catch up before the movie started.

The movie that they chose to watch was Coco, and it was very nice because it’s about family. The lessons in the movie were to have time for the family and prioritize family over anything else. It was also about supporting the talent of a kid and not suppressing it just because of happenings in the past. It also teaches about love and forgiveness. The movie had a nice twist, and we loved it. It was also colorful with beautiful lightings.

With regards to the cinema, it was new, nice and it’s so clean. The chairs were soft, and we sit like VIPs since all were electric recliner chairs with foot rests. Tickets were purchased online since it’s a reservation only cinema.

I am thankful that my friend and her family invited my kids and I too watched the movie. It was fun, and it’s our first time in that place. We enjoyed much

How To Deal With Anxiety

From time to time, we all feel anxious. But for some of us, anxiety is less of an occasional occurrence and more of a daily struggle. While there are certainly medical steps you ought to take in order to curb your anxious thoughts, there are also things you can do on your own to deal with your anxiety. Here are some proactive measures you can take to reduce anxiety in your everyday life.

Keep A Healthy Diet

Many people fail to make the connection that food is medicine. We all know that food is fuel, but sometimes we forget that food contains the vital nutrients that we need to perform optimally. When you keep a poor diet, mental conditions like anxiety and depression can be exacerbated. When you keep a healthy diet, you’ll find that you feel better both mentally and physically.

Aim For Excellence, Not Perfection

For many people, anxiety is a result of constantly aiming for perfection and feeling awful when you fail to meet your own impossible standards. We all want to do our various jobs and tasks well, but doing things “perfectly” is rarely feasible. Instead, train yourself to strive for excellence, not perfection. It will be easier to accomplish your goals and you’ll feel less anxiety-inducing pressure.

Know When To Take A Pause

It’s good to want to push through difficult times. But when your anxiety is flaring up, sometimes trying to push through your stress and anxiousness and continue on as normal can be detrimental to your mental health. For example, when confronted with a massive phobia, it’s a healthier choice to take a pause and remove yourself from the situation until you calm down.

Exercise Frequently

Just as keeping a healthy diet is great for anxiety, exercising can also be hugely beneficial for your mental health. When you exercise, your body produces feel-good chemicals in your brain. Exercising is a natural way to boost your mood. While it’s not always a replacement for medication, it can lessen your dependency on anti-anxiety pills. Talk to your doctor about whether or not your can reduce your dependency on medication through exercise.

Take Care Of Yourself

Human beings aren’t machines who can work nonstop without breaks. There’s a reason that self-care is growing in popularity. People are realizing en masse that we all need breaks and relaxation in order to be our best selves. Make time in your hectic schedule for self-care. For some people this can be as simple as meditating. For others, a massage or a visit to the local yoga studio is necessary for keeping anxiety at bay.

Let Go Of Your Need To Control Situations

Anxious thoughts and feelings can frequently pop up when people feel like they aren’t in control of a situation. Letting go of your need to always be in control can help to reduce this type of anxious thought. Remember, you can’t always control exactly how scenarios play out and it’s not your job to engineer every scenario. Sometimes things go imperfectly, but that’s okay.

Recognize Your Triggers

Everyone has difference scenarios that trigger their anxiety. For some people, the aforementioned phobias bring about anxious feelings. For others, social situations are what cause anxious thoughts. When you know what triggers your anxiety, you can do a better job of reducing future anxiousness and panic attacks. This doesn’t mean that you avoid your triggers altogether, but rather you know to be on guard when you find yourself in triggering situations.

Be Social and Form Relationships

Loneliness and isolation are on the rise. We live in a world where people don’t form close interpersonal relationships and rather depend on the internet for their socializing. There’s a lot of new evidence that says that this might be bad for our mental health. This is why it’s crucial that you nurture your in-person relationships. In dealing with anxiety, it’s essential that you have a strong support system.

Anxiety is an ugly beast that can turn otherwise happy moments into traumatizing ones. However, you don’t have to be a slave to your anxiety. If you follow these tips, you can reduce your feelings of anxiousness and enjoy a higher quality of life.

Home school or go to the regular school? What’s your choice?

With the recent bullying in almost all of the schools, it’s the reason why many parents chose to homeschool their kids nowadays compared to going to the regular school. Even without allergies, some kids asked their parents that they’ll be homeschooled.

There’s one couple who hired a Nanny just to homeschool their daughter because she didn’t want to go to the regular school as she prefers to just stay at home while learning. I asked the mother for what reason and she said to me that her daughter just wanted to be homeschooled. Good thing the parents have good jobs and they are residing in an elite district here in springs which means they can afford anything for their kiddo. The mother worked as a manager of a good company whom she can work on mobile (to check on the people who work under her) whenever there are field trips. Although there are times that she will bring her daughter’s nanny on field trips in the Spring areas. When it’s in other cities, she will bring her daughter herself maybe for safe driving on the highway.

Homeschooling is nice similar to the regular school especially if kids will cooperate in writing, reading and in finishing the lessons for the day. You can advance your lessons anytime you want, or you can catch up with the lessons for the weak if you’re a bit late due to some concerns. Also, you are furnished with books, school supplies, and computers when you choose to homeschool.

There are many advantages of homeschooling vs. the regular school. If I can turn back the time, I’d prefer to just homeschool and stay at home with my parents, but luckily it was 1980 to the late 90s that I was schooling in my Asian home country.

So what is your choice with regards to your education and or the education of your children?
