Plan in the Moment

For the past couple of years, I've been making plans on a whim. I don't plan ahead. I plan in the moment. As for productivity, it's not a good behaviour. It's good to plan everything before. But for living your life, I think it's good to just go with the flow. Yesterday, I had no…

Expect Nothing: How to Have Happy Birthday

When you expect something, it's value decreases automatically. There's always a chance the expectation might not occur, and even if it does, it's value decreases because you expect something. Expectation, in some ways, is a root of sadness. As far as I can remember, I have been sad and depressed most of the time because…

The Baseline: How To Make Consequences Work For You

There's a baseline in everything you do. The minimum set of requirement for you to stay consistent at the work you are performing. It can be anything. While riding motorbike, for example, even if you are angry or happy or sad or hurt or whatever, you still look ahead in the road. That's the baseline.…

Cope With Emotional Instability

I am emotionally unstable. I don't remember the last time 'happiness' was my baseline in life. Usually 'happiness' should be our default state in life. But we go through lots of situations in life that makes it difficult for us to stay happy. I often experience difficulty while becoming emotionally stable. If, for example, some one…

Taking a Walk Anyway

I have been walking almost everyday since the earthquake in April 2015. I might have missed some days, but I walk daily. Today I didn't particularly feel like walking. Weather was gloomy. It was about my breakfast time. I was yet to stretch, meditate and write a blog post (which I've been doing from April…

Layers of Resistance: How To Get Rid of It

The biggest breakthrough for me while meditating has been to get rid of the resistance I face everyday. However, in doing so, I started taking it too seriously and made myself aware when I was resisting the emotion. Since I was too aware of it, I started to resist the resistance itself. And now I had…

April Fools Day: How to Take Advantage

It's always a good idea to take advantage of situation that's around you. Today, for example, is April 1st. Usually people play 'April Fools.'

New Habits: Elements of Habit Creation

Writing anything was effortless for me some years ago, but now it feels like a daunting task. To get perspective, I started to review my motivations and inspirations back then. Why it was so easy for me to write anything back then. After thinking for sometime, I figured there were many elements helping me write…

FutureMe: E-mail To Your Future Self

Some days ago, I received an e-mail for myself that I wrote some years ago. It was approximately 3 years ago. I was surprised. First of all, I never thought I'd ever get that e-mail. Even if I did, I already forgot about it. I wrote that and forgot about it. But I did give…

Write Anyway

I clicked on write a new post some time ago, and closed that window because I didn't want to write anything. I want to, but I can't. After sometime, I was like, "I don't want to write, but let's write anyway." It's like there's something stopping me from writing. Maybe my fear of writing a…
