May Reflections 2017

I have been going through the daily exercises in the book by Bonnie Gray entitled – Whispers of Breathe.

It has been a rather turmoil month with lots of drama happening in my life.  There are many toxic people around us who are trying to take advantage of my generosity and patience.  I know that GOD puts me through obstacles so that I can grow and mature.  Sometimes I really wonder when I will get the break I seriously need.

The daily grind of life. Having sufficient cash to survive with the kids are some thoughts that I have been having on my mind. The escalating course of living in Singapore and suppressed wage system makes it extremely difficult to save a substantial sum for retirement, investment, college funds etc.

I’m also wondering when  all the toxic people will be totally eliminated from my life. It has been a very exhausting 2017 for me so far with lots of unwanted drama brought about by the selfishness/ greed of devils. I had to put my foot down in many instances so that the kids and I can be properly protected from their abuse.   I made it clear in no way their schedule/priorities in life will override mine nor the kids. So called blood ties are meaningless if all on their agenda is 101 ways of enslaving or torturing others for personal pleasure or other devious desires.

It is unfathomable that one can be so utterly wicked to want to wish hell upon their offspring or “loved one” but certainly something which I had to experience this year. Black heart individuals who do not have any redeemable qualities in my book. It can be said that I’ve seen all and nothing is beyond believable at this stage in my life.

I’ve chosen to do and be the best person I can with my limited sources and knowledge. Also focusing heavily on the WORD and surrendering my fears and worries to him. Refocusing and realigning myself constantly to keep true to my personal purpose in life. I’m staying away from those who have secret agendas or trying to derail my focus by their attempts to drag me over to the dark side.

These few years I have learned not everyone has your best interest at heart. The worst culprits are those who actually use the words” I really care about you and you SHOULD do this”- BULLSHIT!!. Seriously if one have to really utter these sentences out loud it only proves to me that you as a person is pretentious and  disillusion.  Words mean nothing if there is no action nor evidence to show results that one “claims”. The most ridiculous sentence I heard is ” I don’t need to prove to put it out for all to see” – The real reason is there is NOTHING substantial to show that’s why they are still hiding being a farce.  Anything and everything can be quantified and verified. (That’s why in every industry there are audits)

I’ve dismissed many so called” friends” who keep bombarding my whatsapp chats/ FB wall with such “inspirational stories”. As one of my FB friends have mentioned in one of his post the most inspiration that one can give is living by example and really do what you set out to do. NO questions asked. There is no need to “borrow” other’s success to add on to your personal emptiness or failure to achieve anything.  Only showing one side of your life also means that you are hiding many things and do not lead a balance life – IMO. It’s a real pity there are so many FAKE people around that makes it harder to find the GEMS to hold on in life.

I’m looking forward to a more restful JUNE and better and more meaningful experiences in life.

How was your month of May?

March Reflections 2017

March had been an extremely busy month for me. Studies had commenced for me and I was busy juggling both studies , kids and work. It wasn’t easy but I made it. I managed to finish the 4 modules from my Specialist Diploma  in Leadership and People Management from Kaplan. I have another 4 modules left to complete the course and expect to complete it come July.   Learning about Leadership and People Management has given me a better inside on how people think and how to motivate them.

There has been an surge of interest in people (Middle management) attending Leadership course during the current economic slow down. Many companies are sending their employees for  upgrading courses to sharpen their skill set as they brace for more structural changes within the different sectors.

The economy in 2017 seems worse than last year with more retrenchments and friends around me looking for job.  The pocket has to be tighten for many as expenses have risen but the pay hasn’t increased in tandem.  The expenses for our family has increase also as now Monkey boy is in Secondary school and the school fees have increased nearly double!!

I’m still figuring it out how to grow an income so that I will be able to sustain the growing family needs and at the same time improve our lives.

Any pointers to share?

Feb Reflections 2017

It is midway through Feb 2017.  The speed that this year has gone by so far is even faster then it was in 2016.

I have done some changes in my daily and monthly routine to incorporate more personal growth activities.  I’ve joined the Lighthouse Ministry and will be helping out in this year’s series of lessons on Values at Monkey boy’s school.

I’m also going back to study and will be doing a Level 5 Diploma in Leadership and People Management (WSQ) by Kaplan.  Constant learning is key for me and developing and strengthening my leadership skills is what I am doing at the moment. When I complete the course I will be better equipped in leading others and the kids.  I will also be doing refresher course in MSoffice related courses to brush up my IT skills.

There are quite a few things in the pipeline for me which I’ll be revealing in time to come 🙂 Extremely excited to see my plans entering fruition stage.
