Kia ora! It has been awhile since my last post. Admittedly, I have been overwhelmed with school work and not been prioritizing blogging ... HOWEVER, another term has passed, spring is here and we are finally on term break! 🥳 After a long, cold winter, the spring sun really warms my soul! 🌞 Time seems … Continue reading Sep 2019 Spring Update: Life Perspective, Carnivore Diet, Fitness, Naturopathy
Old Man Kim Teaches Me Martial Arts
Old man Kim looks like one of those harmless looking yet fit and nimble grandpas you see in asian movies. He's quite a regular at the gym I go to. Before today, our only interaction was when he gave me the thumbs up for doing a round horse kick on the boxing bag in the … Continue reading Old Man Kim Teaches Me Martial Arts
Flows, Synchronicities and Job Hunting
I don't know about you but personal experience has taught me that things don't just happen for no reason. Some people call it flow. Some call it synchronicity. I'm a man of God so I call it God's plan. Whatever you call it, I'm sure there have been events in your life that happen for … Continue reading Flows, Synchronicities and Job Hunting
Do Only the Necessary
Necessity. It's a simple yet elusive context to grasp and even harder to implement. How often do you find yourself thinking, "Is this really necessary?" I frequently find myself wasting valuable time on unnecessary things. Social media, downloading unnecessary information into my mind, getting distracted with unnecessary thoughts, etc. Even in social interactions, I find … Continue reading Do Only the Necessary

Yet, like an old and 'lagging' internet connection, I’m still trying to catch up and come to terms with all that … Continue reading Into The Great Unknown!
People Are Often More Than What They Seem!
This morning was another one of those magical 'God-planned' mornings where coincidences happen at just the right time, down to the microseconds that you just can't help but feel like it was all planned out beforehand! I woke up earlier than usual, naturally, feeling refreshed and wide awake! In fact, I woke up more than … Continue reading People Are Often More Than What They Seem!
“Surrender Your Negativity”
I’m a Roman Catholic and last saturday was the first time in my life I’ve ever mustered the courage to go to the confessional box before mass for confession. I think it may have changed my life for the better. I’d been thinking about this for a few weeks now after hearing our priests repeatedly … Continue reading “Surrender Your Negativity”
This comes from the weekly catholic bulletin that I was reading today in church. It touched me deeply and I hope it makes sense to you 😊 "Joy is what makes life worth living, but for many joy seems hard to find. They complain that their lives are sorrowful and depressing. What then brings the … Continue reading Choosing Joy
A Song for Your Troubles
Recently I've been going through some difficult times filled with physical pain and its consequent emotional/psychological depression and pain. I'm guessing it's been reflected in my demeanor and behavior. Coincidentally, my mother has recently been singing this song alot. Both to herself and to us and even started tucking me to bed with it. So … Continue reading A Song for Your Troubles
