So This Is Christmas!

Santa Claus, visited me last night. Mr. Claus gave me, underneath my Christmas tree, a:
  1. Time management kit
  2. Interpersonal skills
  3. Presentation skills
  4. Written skills
  5. Public speaking skills
  6. Listening skills
  7. Conflict resolution skills
  8. Anger management skills
  9. Business etiquette skills
Now, if God could just take a break and work on his magic to keep blessing me with "Organizational skills" :)

"So this is Christmas! Another year over, and a new one just begun.
And so this is Christmas, I hope you have fun. The near and the dear one, the old and the young."

Thank you God and Santa for the great gifts!

Chasing Luck

Yesterday, with a few dollars and very little sleep, through the fire, to the limit, to the wall I chased my shinning star. For just a chance of meeting you, like a slave running for freedom, to risk it all. Through the fire, through whatever came what may, I felt proud that day. For a chance at meeting Mr. Luck with opened arms, I took it all the way. 

Right down to the wire, through the fire while facing 21 questions, like a player running with a ball, I am proud to say I gave it my all.

With patience, hard work, focus, determination, dreaming and praying to meeting you another day.

PS: I'll be too busy cleaning my bedroom. Next time Mr. Luck you'll run to find me, not vise versa :)

Second Step

It's a long and winding road that will lead me to happiness, and I'm placing a second step forward by heading to school. However, while embracing the artist lifestyle for so long, I can't remember the last time I've burned the midnight oil studying for a test. Or feeling the stressful clicking sound of the clock on the wall, during any school exam, reminding me that time awaits for no one. Here and now, I'm taking a second step forward in learning more about the world of finance. 

I believe that my thoughts are very powerful. I am extremely brilliant at providing solutions in resolving personal relationships issues. I know inside out how to produce, direct or act in a feature film on a budget. I can feel love and sadness, I can share a tear or a smile. With the patience of Job, I can achieve anything that I place my mind to it. Yet, I find that I lack some key financial knowledge and discipline to add to my wealth of knowledge. There's no shame about it, since in my book of life, real shame is found in denying our personal problems and desire to keep avoiding them.

Today, I'm adding another string to my bow by taking a stance in returning to school to learn how these financial institutions are able to make the world turn with my hard earn income. Time to face the music of my youth and the clicking sound of my thoughts that lead me to believe the financial world was cold, heartless and evil.

“Watch your thoughts, for they become words.

Choose your words, for they become actions.

Understand your actions, for they become habits.

Study your habits, for they become your character.

Develop your character, for it becomes your destiny.”

For You And For Me

"There's a place in your heart 
And I know that it is love 
And this place could be much 
Brighter than tomorrow. 
And if you really try 
You'll find there's no need to cry 
In this place you'll feel 
There's no hurt or sorrow. 
There are ways to get there 
If you care enough for the living 
Make a little space, make a better place. 

Heal the world 
Make it a better place 
For you and for me and the entire human race 
There are people dying 
If you care enough for the living 
Make a better place for 
You and for me. 

If you want to know why 
There's a love that cannot lie 
Love is strong 
It only cares for joyful giving. 
If we try we shall see 
In this bliss we cannot feel 
Fear or dread 
We stop existing and start living 
Then it feels that always 
Love's enough for us growing 
Make a better world, make a better world. 

Heal the world 
Make it a better place 

And the dream we would conceived in 
Will reveal a joyful face 
And the world we once believed in 
Will shine again in grace 
Then why do we keep strangling life 
Wound this earth, crucify it's soul 
Though it's plain to see, this world is heavenly 
Be God's glow. 

We could fly so high 
Let our spirits never die 
In my heart I feel 
You are all my brothers 
Create a world with no fear 
Together we'll cry happy tears 
See the nations turn 
Their swords into plowshares 
We could really get there 
If you cared enough for the living 
Make a little space to make a better place. 

Heal the world
For you and for me".

R.I.P - Michael Jackson

I Believe In Me

I believe in me, if I can feel it, then I can do it. If I just believe it, then there's nothing to it. I once read: "Whatever the mind of a man can conceive and believe, it can achieve".

"I believe I can fly, I believe I can touch the sky. I think about it every night and day, spread my wings and fly away. 

I believe I can soar, I see myself running through that open door. 'Cause I believe in me".

I believe, all things are possible.

PS: Even if I dislike airplanes, it's still possible for me to conquer this fear and touch the sky :)
