40 tips for an exceptional, superb and powerful life

>> Monday, February 25

1. Take a 10-30 minute walk every day. And while you walk, smile. It is the ultimate anti-depressant.

2. Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day. Buy a lock if you have to.

3. Record your late night shows and get more sleep.

4. When you wake up in the morning complete the following statement, "My purpose is to____ today."

5. Live with the 3 E's -- Energy, Enthusiasm, and Empathy.

6. Watch more movies, play more games and read more books than you did before.

7. Make time to practice meditation, yoga, tai chi, and prayer. They provide us with daily fuel for our busy lives.

8. Spend more time with people over the age of 70 and under the age of 6.

9. Dream more while you are awake.

10. Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and eat less food that is manufactured in factories.

11. Drink green tea and plenty of water. Eat blueberries, wild Alaskan salmon, broccoli, almonds & walnuts .

12. Try to make at least three people smile each day.

13. Clear your clutter from your house, your car, your desk and let new and flowing energy into your life.

14. Don't waste your precious energy on gossip, energy vampires, issues of the past, negative thoughts or things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment.

15. Realize that life is a school and you are here to learn. Problems are simply part of the curriculum that appear and fade away like algebra class but the lessons you learn will last a lifetime.

16. Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a college kid.

17. Smile and laugh more. It will keep the energy vampires away.

18. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.

19. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.

20. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

21. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

22. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.

23. Don't compare your life to others'. You have no idea what their journey is all about.

24. Burn the candles, use the nice bed sheets. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special.

25. No one is in charge of your happiness except you.

26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words: "In five years, will this matter?"

27. Forgive everyone for everything.

28. What other people think of you is none of your business.

29. Time heals almost everything. Give time, time...

30. However good or bad a situation is, it will change. So stop complaining about the weather, the job, the rents etc etc.

31. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends will. Stay in touch.

32. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.

33. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.

34. The best is yet to come.

35. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.

36. Do the right thing!

37. Call your family often.

38. Each night before you go to bed complete the following statements: "I am thankful for ___. Today I accomplished ____."

39. Remember that you are too blessed to be stressed.

40. Enjoy the ride. Remember that this is not Disney World and you certainly don't want a fast pass. You only have one ride through life so make the most of it and enjoy the ride.

The heart dies slowly…
when the world seems unforgiving,
when the song brings the tears,
when the wind seems so cold.

The heart dies slowly…
when destiny is so cruel
when hope is so lost,
when tomorrow is uncertain.

The heart dies slowly…

..until nothing remains..

When the heart dies, forever would only be a memory.


nothing to do...

I’m too tired to think of something to write about to post in this blog… I’m tired, I’m sad… I dunno.. something’s just buggin’ me today… I’ll just do this Q&A, maybe… juz maybe…

Have you ever said, you'll never love again?
*Yes. Love is such a complicated word. It makes you happy, it makes you sad; it makes you wanna shout and jump around, it makes you wanna wring your hands around someone’s neck…

Is there anything bothering you right now?
* hmmmm wat to do… wat to do…

Is there something you wanna let go of?
* not ready to let go yet.. :(

Do the old songs you had in your past really remind you of the memories?
* yah.. there’s just something about songs that brings back all the memories – the good and the bad…

How important is "Trust"?
*very important… it’s so hard to give, so easy to take away…

How do you learn to forget?
* I don’t think I can ever forget… I can forgive though, people make mistakes, a lot of mistakes…that’s what… there’s this quote I don’t quite agree, and it goes “Time heals all wounds.” That’s a lie.. “you just get used to bearing the pain ‘til your heart gets numbed.. one damned stupid day after another…”

Is crying a sign of weakness?
* No, for me crying is being able to finally accept that some things JUST cannot be changed… that takes a lot of strength to accept that fact..

Do you always regret?
* Yah. The things I did, the words I said… but what’s done is done, right… we move on…

Do you believe that absence makes the heart grow fonder?
* Absence is the ultimate test of trust. It doesn’t make the heart grow fonder, no it doesn’t... it either builds or destroys a relationship… mostly it destroys…

D o you believe that you have a guardian angel?
* I believe someone is really watching over us…

Do you find your ex's new gf/bf good looking?
* do I have to comment on this? hehe

What will you do if you're stuck in the elevator with someone you don't like?
* Stare at that person, head to foot, raise an eyebrow, flip my hair, and look away… hehehhe

Have you ever wanted someone but you can’t have him/her?
* heheheh kinsa gud wala?!

Have you ever said 'I love you' but you lied?
* No, if I say I love someone, that’s it…

Would you ever want to go back in the past?
* Yah… yah I would live it the way I did..

Do you really wanna please everybody?
* Why should I?! If they don’t like who I am, keber na ko nila!

Is waiting ever okay?
* Depends on what you’re waiting for. If it’s for nothing, why wait?

Right now, where do you wanna be?
* Right here.. right now… although I also want to be at the highest peak of the world, and jump (w/ parachute of course.. or glider also…)

When is enough, enough?
* When you’re tired of fighting for that something you’re not supposed to have… get over it!

What are you so sick and tired of?
* Being lied to, taken for granted… damn! I hate that!

What made you smile today?
* I don’t feel like smiling today…go figure..

Is looking good important?
* Who cares if I look good or bad… as long as I’m presentable.. hehe and I don’t scare people…

Do you listen to love songs when you’re down?
* I listen to those songs that are so noisy, so crazy, they’ll give you more headache… I’m listening to them now… I’m listening to Green day’s Basket case right this minute..

What are you thankful for?
* Everything that’s in my life.. and what’s left of it…

Do you agree that men are polygamous by nature?
* I believe that men can be easily tempted to become polygamous…

Do you believe in forever?
* No, when your life loses its own meaning that’s the end of it… no tomorrows and definitely no forever. I believe in the “rest of our lives” though..

What are your plans for the weekend?
* I thought I had plans, then I didn’t had plans… I dunno…

Do you believe that married couples should still go out on a date?
* Yep… even old married couples. It’s so romantic watching an old couple still holding hands and staring at each others’ eyes…

Has someone promised you something and broke it?
* Yes.. a lot of times.. that’s why I’m feeling glum today…

Does the rain make you gloomy?
* No.. I like the rain… the sound of falling rain is like therapy to me..

For now, what is the one thing that you want so bad?
* I don’t know what I want so bad right now… I want a nice bowl of ice cream though, to help me cool my nerves… heheh

Wishing you were with?
* wala nako kabalo…

You can copy and post this if you want to…


a father's poem...

>> Monday, February 4


Just for this morning, I am going to
smile when I see your face and laugh
when I feel like crying.
Just for this morning, I will let you
choose what you want to wear,
and smile and say how perfect it is.
Just for this morning, I am going to step
over the laundry and pick you up and take you to
the park to play.
Just for this morning, I will leave the
dishes in the sink, and let you teach me how to put
that puzzle of yours together.

Just for this afternoon, I will unplug
the telephone and keep the computer off, and sit with
you in the backyard and blow bubbles.
Just for this afternoon, I will not yell
once, not even a tiny grumble when you scream and
whine for the ice cream truck, and I will buy you one
if he comes by.
Just for this afternoon, I won't worry
about what you are going to be when you grow up, or
second guess every decision I have made where you are
concern ed.
Just for this afternoon, I will let you
help me bake cookies, and I won't stand over you
trying to fix them.
Just for this afternoon, I will take us
to McDonald's and buy us both a Happy Meal so you can
have both toys.
Just for this evening, I will hold you in
my arms and tell you a story about how you were
born and how much I love you.
Just for this evening, I will let you
splash in the tub and not get angry.
Just for this evening, I will let you
stay up late while we sit on the porch and count all the stars.
Just for this evening, I will snuggle
beside you for hours, and miss my favourite TV shows.
Just for this evening when I run my
finger through your hair as you pray, I will simply be
grateful that God has given me the greatest gift ever given.
I will think about the mothers and
fathers who are searching for their missing children, the
mothers and fathers who are visiting their children's
graves instead of their bedrooms. The mothers
and fathers who are in hospital rooms
watching their children suffer senselessly and screaming
inside that little body
And when I kiss you goodnight I will hold
you a little tighter, a little longer. It is then,
that I will thank God for you, and ask him for

nothing, except one more day.............
