The Years of …. Let me think….

Standard

Going back to blogging here is quite a small challenge. Well, I think I have to rake again my confidence to write even a simple note.  A courage, should I say.

Blogging I say is just my one way of having some sort of “accountability-partner” to help me commit or maybe put me in to-terms with my everyday moment, AWARE and all FIRED-UP.  That was the purpose I think why I have this blog 6 years back.

But as I reviewed my page now, and saw my stats, its quite too disappointing… to see, what? 1 blog year… haha… not even one last year (well there are 50 drafts beneath it, but that doesnt count, I know)… But here was the time gone… And where was I??

That was the question really… and lots of regrets actually…

Time passed, and I realized, that I somewhat “wasted” (oh such a strong word!) my time for the past ummm 2 years… doing practically things that just keep me by, or shall I say, just cruising and doing things “aimlessly” (ouch again)… I realized that I have not “hooked-up” myself in some grand plan or aspiration. Looking back, I wonder, what did I accomplish? or at least what did I contribute? I forgot, or I just not very interesting even to mention.

Well, bear with me, I will engage myself in lots of mind-exercise to take some memory-recall (and probably, blog it). Aside from recalling (aka doing throwbacks), I will “activate” again my passion-button and live purposefully, or what do you call that? wholeheartedly!

No excuses, no alibis.

Have to be at the moment ALWAYS.

52Weeks Adventure/Challenge:

Week 1 Blogging… (get that courage and keep the momentum)

#52weeks

My Next 52 weeks of Adventure… and more..

Standard

My Next 52 week of adventures (and misadventures) begin (again) today.  This day I am going back to my blog and revive again the fire and passion and aim and anchor of my everyday life.  Looking back, I have “justified” the purpose of my blogging as something that it keeps me anchored to my aim and goals and be conscious about my every precious minute spending with and for what truly matters… Lets start again….

A Month and A Week….

Standard

I am missing my blog and blogging… I missed being inspired… it seemed without writing my thoughts, I am uprooted and in many places. Focus. that’s what I need now. And I need to blog/write to make my mind clearer and my priorities checked.

Anyway, best time to begin is always “now” … never mind that my last entry was Dec 2012 and the second last was July 2012…  I will keep at this for now….

I think I have not started my 2013 right… feels like a roller-coaster in the past month and past week (company take-over, store opening, new implementation at work place, while there are new projects, new demands in our business, plus it is now tax season)… It passed by with me doing so many things yet it seemed accomplishing nothing. I lacked planning and got lost. I am losing focus. And it frustrates me now,,, feels like it is making me more unproductive… Plus, there are lot of people (staff) who are banking on my directions and leadership.

Well, it will not get better if I whine and continue to be dismayed… I have to pick up myself and start again. NOW is the time to start afresh (January will not come back, not until next year). Focus on few things. Relax. Set goals. No pressure. Delegate. Depend on the Team. Unwind. Pray.

I will get by…. I will pass this… with lots “done” …

Will update soon….circles

Been Awhile….

Standard

It’s been awhile since I made a very personal entry in my blog… maybe because it’s been awhile since that I’m in a roller-coaster of happenings and feelings. And I really don’t know my “mood” whenever I face my blogsite, so I just refrain from it…

Well, anyway, NOW I am good! not great but good!… OR I mean I decided to be just that (anyway it’s always a decision to make)….

So, I need to be inspired and get excited and I need to count my blessings again NOW!
1. I got friends who unfailingly support and cheer me!
2. My kids are as bubbly and rewarding as ever (thanks for amusing mornings)
3. The chance to “touch” my staff’s life whom I know I can still inspire (pinaghuhugutan ko din sla ng lakas)
4. A chance to create arts and hatch ideas (gumagana pa)
5. Ice-Scramble while walking with a friend in an amusement park.
6. Fancy pizza with the same friend, talking about life, age and aging.
7. Chicharon once in a while.
8. Thriving business….
9. Bonding moment with parents and kuya
10. Good books (“uhh-ohh” by Robert Fulghum).

So… I have no reason to be forlorn or grumpy… Hello LIFE! I’m BACK!

A New Blog Header in-Progress

Standard

I am excited about getting a new look for my blog…. Thanks a lot to Tara SG for the ideas and support. Actually, after just few correspondences and email exchanges, she created a nice design that I liked instantly… I just asked for a few enhancements, but she really pulled it off nicely….

To give you a peek, here is Tara’s sample (in progress), see this site!
