This quote is a great reminder that external things are not the barriers to our success. Although we are much more fortunate then the crippled character in this drama we often have many hidden physical and mental weaknesses not far from him. We can take the advice from the girl above and learn to use our hearts desire and passion to overcome them. Believe and keep on believing in ourselves in order to reach our goals.

“I never look at the person…even Paul, Moses make mistakes. Even the smartest person make mistakes….”

Today my friend made me notice the high expectations and images of those I look up to. I didn’t know I put them in such an unreachable place. As if they shouldn’t make certain mistakes, they know better. They are morally higher then the mistakes they make. I would get confused and wonder why when mistakes happen. As I write this, I feel how silly my thoughts are and that I should know better but never realized it. I learned something new about myself today.

Am I lowering myself and idealizing these people? Or are they my excuse to do bad when I see them mess up? I guess when I am looking up to others as models I forget they are humans. They are not any better then me. We all are just people with different experiences and decisions to make. Sometime we do better then other times. There’s not one person in this world who hasn’t made a mistake or is immune to mistakes.

Reminder to self: The people who I look up to cannot be responsible for the decision I make. I take full responsibility for my own mistakes in life. I can choose the good over the bad influences that effects me.

Effort can become ability

Remember, effort can become ability

The girl in the picture has failed a physical exam which is the prerequisite to her dream job. With her family against her, she is ready to quit and give up. With a friend’s help and training she is encouraged and determined to succeed. I don’t have odds against me like her but I admit I can be pretty lazy, undetermined and can have very low confidence just like her. This is a great constant reminder to keep making effort. Even the worst can become the best with persistent effort. 🙂

Pathology VS Psycology

September 26th, 2014 § 0 comments § permalink

I recently discovered some health issues that could potentially be serious. Upon hearing this news I constantly worried and imagined the worst outcome. My moods dropped and fell short on sleep. My physical and mental discomfort went from a 2 to a 8. I nearly thought I would die soon. There were no confirmed results but I was already worn down.

The moment I saw this clip I had to snap it . Unlike what was portrayed in the pictures, “3 parts pathology, 7 parts psychology”, my situation was accurate in the negative spectrum. I realized having an illness was not the most impactful on my health but my emotional response to it was.

Worry and fear are natural human responses to a threatening situation. But these negative energy can dangerously warp our outlook and perspective on the situation. Forcing oneself to have a positive attitude might not be a first option, but will have far better benefits then yielding to natural instincts. Mind over matter takes some will power. In moments of darkness we do have a choice to shift to the light. We constantly need to make effort to push ourselves over these humps.

Keeping optimistic will lessen the stress impact on a weak body giving it a better chance at recovery. Stressing won’t heal anyone but will damage our will to fight for a better chance of survival. Keep your chin up, let God handle it.

Power of prayer

February 11th, 2014 § 0 comments § permalink

Last night my burdens fell so heavily on my shoulders that I physically felt the pain. It felt like I had a hard time breathing and my head started to hurt. I would always lingered in this pool of disparity in the past. I dug myself deep ditches of sorrow to make sure I wouldn’t have an escape route. Yes, what a gloomy person, I agree.

Last night I decided to put my worries in prayer. I am not an organized eloquent speaker and my thoughts are scattered with worries and fears that I do not comprehend. I never knew how to clearly verbalized my fears to God and yet I expect to be comfort and my problems solved.

For the first time I was directly asking for what I needed, peace. For the first time I truly felt the peace instantly after my prayer. And For the first time I felt the Holy Spirit’s guidance that helped me clearly communicate with God and He answered my prayer in an instant. Thank you, God, you are amazing.
