I struggled as a teenager in school as a result of identity crisis. I was confused about the ideal career path and so I chose to be in a department that most people believe we have the most intelligent students.
I felt good about my decision for some time but soon realised that I wasn't fit for the department but had to stay there pretending to be fine while I was miserable.
Though a science student, I do represent my school in spelling, speaking and debating competitions and we won some laurels. I wish someone had told me I should change to the art department at this stage but no one was there to help out.
I was admired and celebrated in school for representing my school but I was miserable inside and dreaded Chemistry so much until the end of high school.
This affected my academic performance and I couldn't gain admission into the University immediately after high school like many of my friends who looked up to me in school. This led to waste of precious time and resources that could have been productively channelled if I had been on the right career path.
True ‘Eat, Pray,Love’ kind of experience in Puri Alam Bali. Feeling truly refreshed and recovered.
On that note, I want to talk about subject that everyone is talking about yet it gets so complicated as SO many people are talking about it. And it’s a self-love. Yes pampering ourselves with massages, trips and good food is a form of self-love but really not all of it. For me, true definition of self-love is making decisions that are good for me in a long term, giving myself a kick in the ass when I procrastinate, making sure I spend time with people that are good for me and the big one - always listening to my inner voice and acting on it. Therefore, self-love is still something I absolutely don’t have all figured out, I make mistakes, and still often fall into traps of my own ego that chases things and wants to do it all, while forgetting to actually put myself first. However, every day I commit to work on it, and consciously make better choices in order to become more self-loving. #eatlovepray#bali#travelgram#selflove#bmsadventures#peace#goals#love#instatravel#me#lithuanian#blog#nature#relax#wellness
Inilah yang seharusnya ditampilkan oleh umat Islam di dunia ini, menjadi orang yang mampu menindas nafsu amarahnya sendiri dan menjadi orang yang pemaaf bagi semua manusia.
Di permulaan ayat, umat Islam disuruh 'bergegas menuju ampunan Allah.' Kalimat ini mengisyaratkan bahwa untuk memperoleh ampunan Allah, kita harus mampu meredam amarah kita kepada orang lain, lalu memaafkan mereka, dan bahkan berbuat baik kepada mereka.
Nicodemus still denies the Jesus is God so He has offered many proofs that He is God.
In the old testament; some people were being given the Spirit of God with a limit. (Numbers 24:2 among many others). However, Jesus ALWAYS has the Spirit of God. This is because He is God. This permanent presence of the Spirit of God in Him is an important proof that He is God.
Those who compare themselves to others will always fall short of what true success means, they see a person who has a better car, a better partner, a better life, more money, a bigger house, more kids, more of anything they lack and see that as a means of being unhappy because someone has more. If you really want to be happy in life take a step back and compare your past with your present moment and see if it adds. If it does excellent you are your best self, if it doesn’t congrats you are still your best self now let’s work on yourself to become even better than you are. Avoid comparing to anyone because there will always be someone who has more or has done more than you. I never want to be Mark Zuckerberg or Steve Jobs because it doesn’t interest me to do what they do. Their passions do not excite me but what does excite me is inspiring people to become better and that is where I stand in life. In reality your only competition is you so how far are you willing to go to get what you truly desire? A journey of a thousand steps starts with the first step. You cannot expect to be anyone else in life but you. We do not need you to be the next Mark Zuckerberg or Steve Jobs, we just need you to be you so be you and forget being anyone else.

The way you hold yourself is an expression of purpose, and prayer. ✨ This how yoga comes to life in our bodies - when we realize that we are the overlap of earthly experience and spiritual consciousness!

Light will always overtake darkness. One of our greatest challenges in life is to continue in hope until it does. This is something we will all face in our lives at one point or another. If you are in need of hope, if the light at the end of the tunnel seems to be fading — please do not give up! You are not alone. The light is always there, even if right now it’s unseen. Keep fighting.
This Friday, make some time to pray for victims of NZ Masjed attacks last week. - Pray for our fallen brothers and sisters to rest in peace. - Pray for their families and loved ones to find peace themselves, to be strong in the face of their tragic loss and to find the courage and patience to deal with their grief.
It is usually the living that suffer the most, especially after a death that was so brutal, so let us pray for their hearts to find healing. -
