One bonus question from him to answer:

34. Are You Happy?

In general, yes~!

What if..

Imagine below situation in your daily life:

  • I plan to cycle tomorrow morning, what if it’s going to rain?
  • I’m thinking to go swimming, what if it’s too sunny and I’ll get sunburn?
  • I’m going to have a test, what if I fail?

And guess what, often, the “what if” scenario which I thought of didn’t happen.

Which reminds me, Ajahn Brahm used to say, why keep thinking what if things go wrong. What if things go right? *smirk*

There are many things which is unpredictable like weather but there are things which can be quite obvious, for example if you don’t study at all, it can be quite tough to pass a test. (Or still be possible if you are super genius?) 😀

Any similar situation happened to you before? Did your what if scenario happen? Or something else happened?

PS: I think I’ll go ahead with my original plan to exercise even if the weather forecast said the chance of rain is 100%. (I’ve been tricked 2x so far) (ha!)

Happy 26th week

This week is a mark of half a year in 2015. Time flies isn’t it? 

I hope everyone is doing well! With all of your resolution. 

I found a little encouragement from WordPress, a reminder that I started blogging 6 years ago.  wordpress achievement
Second half of the year, please be kind to me. :)  

Expectation (Pt 2)

I was supposed to get this out last week, but I was expecting great idea will come out from my head. As a result, nothing comes out. 

Or maybe this sounds familiar too: “isn’t it obvious that you can’t tell this information to A. You’re expected to know it.”

When I think or expect that other people will know about something or do something, it often ends the other way around, and it makes me upset or frustrated. 

Don’t you think so? 

Recently, I came across to this awesome quote 

Expect nothing, appreciate everything

So I told myself, to do this simple check

  1. Never assume/expect that other people will know what we want.
  2. Always ask. Never ask, you’ll never know
  3. Things which seems natural to you may not necessarily understand by other people. So don’t need to get upset when they don’t 

PS: when I scrolled through my blog, I found that I published a short post about expectation last year. Seems like I need to get reminder 😉

And yes, I still owe one more post for this week

3 advices from my 3 teachers

I don’t say anything because I saw you were moving okay. If you’re not moving, I will ask you to do it differently

when I told my swimming teacher that I feel I’m not moving at all although I kicked so hard. So sometimes we need a mentor/friend in our life because we can’t “feel” our progress and they would be able to see it.

Don’t do things you don’t like to happen to you, to other people

when going to my Japanese class. It seems I’m not only learning the language but also learning about life.

We can’t control a lot of things in life, like how people will treat us. But we can control how we respond to it

when opening “A little wisdom that makes a HUGE difference” book randomly and this page reminds me to change my thinking. It’s relieving!

There are too many things in this world that we can’t turn back. But I think that, there are not many things that we can do it again.
