    INTENTIONAL LIVING: On Lesson 26

    To start the discussion on Intentional living, I’ll love to share a quote from Steve Jobs which says, “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition, they somehow already know what you truly want to become, and everything else is secondary.” – STEVE JOBS On the 31st of May, I had my 26th birthday. For over a month, I’ve had to put the past one…

    Dear 20Something Ending 2019,

    This is to my fellow millennials that have beaten themselves up too much this year because almost nothing made sense, or the ones who started strong but finished poor, or the ones who got to the party very late. . . News flash, all those people you think have their shit together don’t know what they are doing most of the time. Most people don’t post their failures neither will the ones with good results talk about the price for the prize. I’ve heard people say to me they wish they are me while deep down, I felt empty at the time because I have no idea what I was…

    My Anti-Baby Pills

    Well, took a while for me to gather the courage and will to write but I pushed through. I wish I have something to say about pills but not today and I know you probably opened this post because you’re interested in knowing about my Anti-Baby Pills (which by the way is a phrase I find amusing when my language lecturer told us that is the German way of calling Contraceptives – Quite mean). So, we are definitely not talking about my pills or baby plans but why I’ve been off the grid for so long, 2019 in summary and the other stuff. 2019 has been nothing short of amazing.…

    On Failing Forward ii

    Hi everyone, trust you’ve been doing great? This is the second part of my last post about “Failure” and how our perspective about it can change everything. Amongst the many times I’ve failed at something, failing ZOO101 in my year one stuck with me more because not only was my intelligence questioned but my tenacity too. Being a model-child with academic excellence, I was shocked when I failed a course in my first semester in the university. First thing I did was tell my mum because I needed to draw comfort and strength from knowing she’ll always be in my corner (this is something I don’t think most students going…

    On Failing Forward i

    “Fail early, fail often, but always fail forward.” – John C Maxwell How to handle failure is one tool you won’t know you have a need for until you start adulting especially if you were an A/A+ student in school. You’ve never really had to worry about failing because you’re even the one the C-students come to and it always look like you have everything all figured out, hence, no need for contingency plans for failure. Well, until after school and you step into the real world where you discover the difference between “Failing Often” to “Failing Fast and Forward“. One of the few things you need to know about…
