Random Thoughts

I was going to write about the 3 Major Realizations I had recently.

But I changed my mind, and decided to talk about “Random Thoughts” — just because I don’t want to think too “deeply” in my very first post here.

So here it goes.

Where I am headed

Right now, I honestly don’t know.

Because for some months now, I haven’t given this a lot of thought.

I don’t know why… or maybe I can’t say why.

So I want to address this — and I will definitely make some drastic changes in my routine.

The good thing

If there was one major positive thing that resulted from my current routine, it’s the improvement to my health and fitness.

I’ve dropped from 178 lbs (April 2019) to 165 lbs. I’ve been pretty consistent going to the local gym weekly — at least 3x a week.

The not-so-good thing

Yeah, and there’s this — I haven’t been that “studious” as I used to be in the past.

For many years I have always been reading a lot of books and enrolled in many online courses (i.e. accounting, auditing, process improvement, statistics, data analytics, innovation, etc.) — but this year, I have been slow in investing in my knowledge.

Reflecting about this now, I’m not very happy.

But I think it’s a blessing in disguise. I have rested my mind, got myself healthier — and was able to spend time with people who matter in my life.

Moving forward though, I must get back to my drive of continuous learning.

Getting back on track

Writing this made me realize as well that I have not been reading the bible as much as I used to.

This definitely needs to be corrected right away.

So to ensure I get to act on this, I will do regular write ups here about my reflections of bible readings.

More time with my family

I haven’t been spending much time with my family due to my work.

I think weekends would be a good time to start reaching out to my family — or even night times when I get home from work.

I definitely need to improve on this aspect.

Friends & Acquaintances

Hmmm. I feel I have to write another blog post just for this.

In the 2nd quarter of 2019, I met a lot of interesting people — and found a few worth keeping, most not knowing that I consider them special friends. There is even one person whose zest for life is extremely infectious: dare I say that this person is destined for greater things — I just have this gut feel, and I’m usually right about these things. =)

On Writing

I feel I have to write more regularly.

And I’m planning to take on more freelance writing gigs.

I think my mind has rested enough, and I feel I’m ready for more writing jobs.

Or I could also just write articles for my own affiliate marketing gigs.

I don’t know… let’s see.

Final Thoughts

Definitely, I need to improve on a lot of areas in my life.

But that’s the beauty of life — I get to correct or make adjustments along the way.

In the end, I want to have a better relationship with my God, my family and the special people in my life — all while doing the work I love, making an impact in people’s lives, and earning enough to live a good life.

’til next time,

Buen
