Life Happens

This is just a quick update on what has been going on in my life. I am finally ready to divulge as much about the things that happen in my life and I think it is about time I become more open and personal. I claim this blog to be a personal blog anyway. Also, I just feel like letting some things out because I need space inside to breathe.

1. New Layout - because I was getting bored with the plain layout I previously had, I took a month long break from blogging to focus on learning web designing and visualizing how I want people to perceive this blog. And now I can say I am happy and satisfied with the new look. It still doesn't look as professional as other blogs but that is because I am a novice when it comes to HTML and CSS. Given that, I think I did a good job (pats her own back). I will try my best to supplement this new layout with good quality pictures and articles (I can probably sustain the latter but the former I will really try my hardest). I hope you all are liking the new layout. 

2. Boredom Strikes - I am falling into a black hole I call boredom again. Routine sucks and it doesn't give you anything exciting to look forward to. I used to be excited to wake-up everyday and look forward to the day's agenda but I am suddenly being pulled to this black hole again. I don't want to give in but the things I do are very reactive. I don't have anything to do unless something happens (do you get what I mean?). There is only so much I can do to be proactive and make everyday interesting so when that is all done, what is left of me is boredom. I need things to happen but how?

3. #jennsetter is Tired - I have about 4 more travels lined up for the year and honestly, I am starting to feel tired. It could be because of the plane ride and long hours of wait to get to your destination or it could be because there is not enough interval time between my travels. You just get to that point where you become tired. I have a trip again in less than a week. I am excited because I want to see the cherry blossoms but I am not as excited as I used to be when a travel is coming up. Next time I will be sure to schedule my travels with enough interval time so I can build the excitement and enthusiasm (and also to give me enough time to pay off my credit card before the next travel).

4. Morning Routine - since the boredom black hole thing happened, I started doing gentle morning yoga. I don't know about other people but I find yoga helps you think better and feel better. It has helped me clear my mind and feel more awake. Yoga with Adriene on YouTube has a lot of nice yoga videos for any time of the day. I like her morning yoga videos because they are perfect for beginners and she has a soothing voice. Try her videos out and start doing yoga in the morning too! It is a good way to start your day.

5. The Future - no one can really tell what the future holds. We can never tell whether it will be good or bad. We just have to look forward to it. Anyway, speaking of the future, I know I said in one of my previous posts that I will start pursuing my passion. But it's already March and I have gone nowhere. Where is that plan I had 2 months ago? Where is that burning desire to get things started and going? I have no idea where the past 2 months have gone and I have done 0 of what I had wanted to do. If I am dead serious about my future I should have been halfway through my plan now. I really hate how I slacked off. This should really push myself more.

Life happens and sometimes it sucks but most of the time it's fun! We all go through some degree of turbulence but I believe that there is nothing we cannot conquer. We have full control of our lives and what happens to it is a product of our choices and our decisions. If you want things to happen, you need to act now. If you want a better future, you need to start moving. If you want to make things interesting, you need to take things to another level. Life will always be full of surprises but it is up to you on how you will handle those surprises to shape your future.

Have a wonderful rest of the week!
