Day 34’s Topic: Determination.
——————————————————————————————————————————————–
Time to get the game face on!

With stability in place of a job to pay the bills and the means of actually taking care of myself like an adult, AKA I don’t have to starve anymore like some grueling nights I had to endure, I can finally start to plan for the immediate future in terms of projects and ambitions.

The past two months tested my limits, forced me to rethink my life from the ground up and above all else made me grow up and fast. Those random things you take for granted like shelter and food don’t seem like much until you’re backed up to a wall with limited options.

Nonetheless, that particular part of the storm has passed. It’s time to move forward with my various plans.

The first order of business is just to establish some sense of consistency throughout the week. A little structure goes a long way, after all. I have made it a habit to do things like write a blog post every evening at a certain time to acclimate myself, mainly so I don’t become lazy as a writer. Hey now, it’s worked so far, right?

On top of that, I now sleep and wake up at roughly the same times, so that stupid insomnia issue is basically taken care of for now. But now, I have to base my life around my work schedule, using my free time to chip away at my projects and planning.

Some writing here. Some research here. A little bit of this. A little bit more of that.

This ensures I can get stuff done to feel accomplished without overwhelming myself. As a reminder, that sense of “willpower” is a finite resource within the human body. You can’t just go autopilot and not expend willpower. It’s always going to be used, but sometimes you can scrape by with stretching it around, otherwise you will burn out.

It’s always a good time to feel determined! Here is some inspirational music to complement that determined attitude!

Day 20’s Topic: New Year’s resolution.
——————————————————————————————————————————————–
Hello there. I hope everyone had a pleasant New Year’s celebration.

I wasn’t particularly feeling well, and I so had to default to a lame, quiet evening of just trying to hang in there. Typical, oh so typical, shut-in behavior.

I’ve been an emotional wreck for this past week, just really on edge in my own ways and I have taken it upon myself to declare this New Year’s resolution as a result …

CUT DOWN ON THE NEGATIVITY IN MY LIFE THAT I ALWAYS CREATE FOR MYSELF.

This is an ambiguous resolution, almost a cop-out as some would call it, but it is something constantly looming on the back of my mind. I am my own worst enemy. Bar none. I continue to make situations difficult, whether it’s day or night, regardless of what time of the year it is.

If I could somehow make the “negative version” appear right in front of me, I would punch him right in the nose for making me feel so miserable when I am just trying to find ways to be upbeat and optimistic.

I hate feeling like this. I hate feeling like I am dying on the inside when I know I am more or less OK in a technical sense. I dread the next time I have to wade through the muck that is my emotional and mental well-being.

Everything constantly weighs down on me, everything always seems to be in shambles, but I continue to fight on. I have no choice and all. It’s either I keep battling through this negativity or I lose.

Daily NhanSense – Day 14


Daily NhanSense: Every day, I will blog about something that comes to mind. My goal is to practice writing about my hobbies, my interests, my opinions and so forth.

Day 14’s Topic: Goals.


I have many goals, and perhaps they are too numerous for me to accomplish all at once. One could say I am biting off more than I can chew with having a lot of dreams I want to make true, but having things looming on the horizon keeps me motivated.

After all, without goals, you end up being lost and unfocused within your own mind. Being determined every day is one of the few aspects I can bank on with trying to move “forward.”

The 54th Deadline: Ongoing Patience


————————————————————————————————————–
The 54th Deadline: Life is a series of chances to achieve something by a given point. You might very well miss out on opportunities if you are not careful. However, I firmly believe that God gives us plenty of means to find our way, even if we mess up here and there. After all, life demands deadlines. Try and try again until your goals and dreams are realized. Strive to finish on a successful note with whatever you set out to do. Always.
————————————————————————————————————–
If there is one thing about me I have gotten pretty good at over the years, it’s having ongoing patience.

The patience to wait, wait and just wait until who knows when has become an everyday thing for me. But I have grown weary of waiting for the “storm” to pass. Everything seemingly is improving, and yet I am stuck biding my time and watching the clock go ticktock.

It’s maddening. It can drive one insane.

And you know what? I think all of this patience has accumulated a lot of interest over the years, so I think it’s justified to expect some kind of big payout by now.

To be this patient like myself has to be some kind of worthwhile virtue.

Abide by the Vibe: Pulse


————————————————————————————————————–
Abide by the Vibe: Your everyday “vibe” is created on your own terms. Every action and thought will affect this “vibe” constantly. Will you choose to be fueled by a happy “vibe” or will you destroy yourself with a negative one?
————————————————————————————————————–

“We all abide by the vibe we create for ourselves.”

This blog of mine is my pulse.

It’s my pulse in the sense that it reminds the people still in my life that, “Hey, Nhan’s still around.”

The more I figure out things in life, the more I understand myself and what I want to achieve in the near future, the stronger this pulse will become.

When I’m ready, I’ll let everyone know of my presence.

“We all abide by the vibe we create for ourselves.”


Abide by the Vibe: Resilience

“We all abide by the vibe we create for ourselves.”

You have to be resilient when it comes to life.

Things don’t always come easy, and this is where some discipline goes a long way.

Life can hit you pretty hard at times, and sometimes to the point where you want to curl up in a corner and give up. But this is where you make your counterattack and fight back.

To throw in the towel too easily is to eliminate any chance of attaining ultimate victory.

Have resilience.

R-E-S-I-L-I-E-N-C-E.

It’s an excellent word.

The 54th Deadline: Direction

I think we all feel like we’re running around in circles at times. We are in such a rush to go somewhere that we don’t think about the actual direction.

It’s important and vital to have a destination in mind. You can travel a million miles physically, mentally and emotionally, but it doesn’t mean anything if you end up nowhere ideal.

I have learned this the hard way over the years. The short story: I became lost here and there, but now I am trying to get back on track.

For some people, the journey is a tad easier. The path is laid out right in front of them. They might as well have neon arrows pointing them in the right direction constantly.

However, for others like myself, it never seems so obvious.

Basically, I have direction now. Things make a lot more sense. Going from point A to point B/C/any other letter feels like quite the accomplishment. All things considered.
