The Secret of Letting Go

Blame it on New Year – it brings a sense of New Beginnings and Letting Go’s, not to mention – Moving On’s. I was thinking of looking back at 2012’s happenings in my life, but I find myself looking back on the past decade of my life. I don’t know how that came about, I just realized if I look back from last year (it’s already 2 hours to New Year here…), 2013 will be the same as 2012 – or at least not much of a difference.

See, way back 2002 – things are much much different, a lot have happened and the impact of decisions and choices is only felt now til the last days of 2012. Well, technically for the long-term decisions and goals – which I never really have simply because time is never long-term for me. It’s me talking and am not generalizing. If you are one of those people who had the same impulsive and courageous character then we have the same disease. I plainly consider the tomorrow as a chore and live the days as if it were to end today. That is also the reason am saying I felt the consequences of 10 years eating me up just lately. I worried for a while, then got mad, hated myself for a few minutes – then I finally admitted defeat. I can’t beat myself for my choices – it is me, no matter how many New Year’s resolution I write – I live daily and not on tomorrows. What kind of failures really burn? I only know of personal and emotional attachments. Career and finances are always that something we can always recover from. Unfortunately, with raging emotions and physical attachment – things are murky and blurry especially when reason is all but a cliché’. Continue reading


The Next BIG Thing.

But Do We See It?

It starts today.  What is the first thing you think about when you wake up?  Is it – how lovely your day ended before sleeping last night, or how bad the dinner was, maybe how amazing it felt when your boss agreed with your project, or probably how great the party was? It’s a lot of things, good or bad, money or life. But it all comes down to – What happened before you sleep. Why? We have different reasons.  The most common is:

 “So I’d know what to do today…” OR “So next time I’ll do better than how I did last night/yesterday/last week/last month or year…or when that day I was born…etc…”

These are all valid and unquestionable.  As a matter of fact, our reasoning is the one that dictates our individualism.  Because of that, no one can say you are wrong without being so personal about it. Often times, we get hurt and resist the truth the moment we hear it – That’s personality and attitude working. Doing something about it is character, but how we do it is where substance and depth comes in.  Is there really a right approach on seeing things so we can all be successful?  I’ve asked myself that question, twice in my life, that’s when I had two major disappointments – career wise.  I asked that question the 1st time it happened.  Going back and analyzing where I messed up.
