Tales of the busy procrastinator of a 20-something.

I should change my blog to the title as above and never post anything. Haha!

As I transition to a new job scope and handling the rush that comes with Christmas by preparing hand-made hampers for our clients, I have very much abandoned posting on my blog for a long while. It’s been very tiring on my body that I even forgotten about the German lessons I’m taking on duolingo (and that only requires 10 minutes of my day!) My body has gone through so much of internal conflict that I feel sorry for it. -hugs myself-

What’s the point in pushing your body to the limit continuously? It’ll get back to you in disastrous ways. I have had indigestion, cold and sore throat over the last 2 weeks. Not to mention that when we get worked up, our body tends to want to take in anything sugary. It’s good to treat yourself sometimes but stress eating is not good (ask anyone about it – but we would still do it).

I honestly have no idea what this post is about. Haha just random ramblings.

Moral of the story: Stop stressing about things. Leave work to work. Give your body sufficient rest, even if you feel you don’t need it. Treat your body as another person, a loved one. Drink loads of water. Enjoy nature during lunch.
And most importantly, Christmas is the season of giving but you don’t need to stress about expensive things. Give your time. Give your presence. Help someone in need.

Love & Peace.

Christmas Edition: To Be Thankful For

Counting down to Christmas, there is nothing more exciting than that for me. It’s the biggest celebration my family and I celebrate for the year. Close friends and family come over for a meal, exchange of gifts and endless laughter surrounds the house. Bygones be bygones, letting nothing but happiness set in.

The smell of mum’s famous dishes is the welcoming smell as people slowly flood in, making mouths water with hunger. Christmas carols playing in the background, the clinking of wine glasses as we make cheer. Ahh…Christmas is definitely the most wonderful time of the year.

So, with that said, let’s take some time to be thankful, once again. Not to mention, to also remember those lost in the tragedies that happened over the year, and their families.

It only takes one smile to make a difference, a change of heart, someone to feel visible.

This Christmas, I wish everyone a peaceful mind and heart. Let us spread the cheer and happiness beyond our social network, to the strangers on the streets. Be thankful for what you have been blessed with. You are blessed.

Love & Peace.

December: Day 23

As the crazy shopping settles down in a day (or two, depending on where you are), don’t forget to make time for family, our loved ones, and especially the little ones. Remember that the gift of time is more appreciated than the gift of presents and money.
You can buy the whole world but if you can’t spend a single day with someone, it wouldn’t matter. We’re not robots. Everybody needs love.

Be kind to one another 🙂 x

December: Day 22

Ohmygawd! It’s the Eve of the Eve of the Eve of Christmas! Aka THREE more days to Christmas!

Did some last minute shopping in town yesterday, which really did test my patience. Why? Cos SOME people just LOVE to walk extremely slow in a crowded area, holding other people back. Not only that, they took up the whole walkway with their slug-like movements. I mean, c’mon!
Ok, breathe.

So, for today and the next few days if any of you are going to do the crazy stunt of shopping last minute, I do BEG of you to simply walk at a decent fast speed, or just give way to others behind who might be rushing to go first.
Stop using your phone unless you’re stationery. Stop acting like you own the mall, road, walkway, etc. Stop multi-tasking when you know it slows you down.

It could help someone in need, you never know. When you stop thinking about yourself and start thinking about others, you learn to spread happiness and joy. Now, isn’t that what Christmas is all about? Not only is it the birth of Jesus Christ, but the celebration of seeing God in each one of us as we’re all his creations – no exceptions.

Take this time to also donate some money, be it under your friends’ name or just for yourself. There’s so many charities and organizations out there, some more in need than others.

Most importantly, be kind to others 🙂 x
