Overcoming fears of failure

Hello tomodachi’s,

Good day to you all. Hope you are all doing well. Today’s Thoughts of the Day is about overcoming one’s fears of failure.

As I get older I come to the realisation that sometimes overcoming (fears of) failure is a necessary evil we all must face and overcome in order to succeed. As they say: “Failure either makes you or breaks you.” Continue reading

Thoughtsoftheday: Parents should be regarded as superheroes because they sure have it tough

Hey, there everyone. Sorry for not posting for the past few days. It has been somewhat hectic and I impulsively took a mini break without letting anyone know. Sorry for that. ūüėõ Today’s post will be a combination of my What is Angie up to Mondays and my Thoughts of the Day Wednesdays.

Anyway, if you read my blog last week Monday you would know the reason why I have been so very busy lately. And the reason revolves around two pint sized humans who nowadays take up much of my time. :’D

After having spend much of my time with with these two kids (I am caring for) and their mother, I have a renewed respect for parents and parenting as a whole. Because, Lord have mercy, it is not an easy job at all. It makes me seriously consider if I ever want to have any kids of my own in the future. 

As sweet and adorable as they can be they can be just as troublesome and tiring. Not to mention, you have to be attentive at all times and having kids can cause lots of financial burdens. Of course, mentally I always knew this and I also knew parenting was not an easy job but to personally experience what it meant to be a parent was kind of overwelming sometimes. 

This experience has truly opened my eyes even though they are not mine and I can always return them to their mother when my job is done I will always have these experiences. And I think these experiences has also allowed me to understand kids just a little better. Especially, if from now on I want to continue writing children’s stories and books they would enjoy.

Thoughtsoftheday: Be patient

Hello, everyone. Today’s Thoughts of the day is all about: having patience.

There are people who have an almost  unlimited supply of patience, those who have some patience and those who have very little patience. I fall into the category of having some patience and once that limit is reached I become very irritated. Which category would you say you fall into?

Anyone can become impatient once their level of patience is reached, but as the saying goes “Rome was not built in a day”. Nothing much comes out of things acquired easily. It is always the hard and nearly impossible things that take a long time to achieve or acquire. And that is usually worth the wait.

Even I have ambitions and wants that I fully aware will require me to have patience for a long. Such as one day becoming a bestselling author. But that does not mean I have to quit when things are not going my way or when it takes too long time to fulfil. That is because I want it bad enough that I can wait for now at least.My time will surely come. It may not be now or it may not even be tomorrow but it will surely come. Always remember that: every small step eventually leads you to your goals. Just sit back and enjoy the ride.

Thoughtsoftheday: Just do it!

Hello, readers. Doing well on this nice Wednesday evening? Despite the chill in the air that has been around for these past few days I am doing well. My thoughts of the day this chilly Wednesday evening is : Just do it!

Have something in mind that you want to do, then: Just do it! Want to go to a party but have no one to go with then: Just do it! Want to have delicious dinner in a nice restaurant but have no significant other to take you out then: Just go by yourself! Of course, there are some circumstances that do not always allow a person to just do everything they would like to such as not having sufficient funds or their current location but if it is feasible then: just do it. Do not always depend on others to do what you want to do.

Many times I have gone out to the movies by myself or ate at a nice restaurant by myself because I do not have a significant other and much friends where I live but I can have just as much fun alone as I can with someone else. Why should I wait to have someone around to do something I like? Sorry, but I am not willing to give up on things I like to do just because I do not have someone to go with me. I just do what Angie wants to do. I especially remember a friend I met in a club some time back being surprised about me being there by myself and not being around any of my girl-friends. I was kind of surprised by his comment because I never thought twice about going out by myself.

Anyway, is there anyone here who feels the need to go with someone whenever you do something? I hope you liked this post and I will see you all on Friday evening for my Writing Related Fridays at 8 pm.

Thoughtsoftheday: Persistence and determination are the keys to success‚Äč

Konnichiwa minna! How is everyone? I do hope you are all doing well. Today is especially hot in this part of the world (33* C), so I feel like I am practically melting away.

Anyway, I came across an article on Entrepreneur a few days ago and was so impressed with the person who has faced so many failures and mistakes but still persisted to pushing forward with determination. In all honesty, it was a bit painful for me to read at first because I can somewhat relate to him a little. Although I have not experienced the level of soul-crushing failures Jack Ma has experienced, I am the type of person who still needs to try twice or three times as hard just to get average results. It makes me so frustrated. Continue reading

Thoughtsoftheday: Show compassion, because we all know Karma can be a real bitch!

Hello, all. For quite some time I was thinking if I should keep or change my Opinionated Wednesdays posts to something else. After much thought about what to do with it, I decided on changing it to Thoughts of the day Wednesdays. Anyway, I came across this short film on Facebook starring Alicia Keys and immediately thought that I wanted to write a post about it. Continue reading
