“The Purpose Driven Life” by Rick Warren

Don't date because you are desperate.
Don't marry because you are miserable.
Don't have kids because you think your genes are superior.
Don't philander because you think you are irresistible.

Don't associate with people you can't trust.
Don't cheat. Don't lie. Don't pretend.
Don't dictate because you are smarter.
Don't demand because you are stronger.

Don't sleep around because you think you are old enough & know better.
Don't hurt your kids because loving them is harder.
Don't sell yourself, your family, or your ideals.
Don't stagnate!

Don't regress.
Don't live in the past. Time can't bring anything
or anyone back.
Don't put your life on hold for possibly Mr. Right.
Don't throw your life away on absolutely Mr. Wrong because your biological clock is ticking.

Learn a new skill.
Find a new friend.
Start a new career.
Sometimes, there is no race to be won,
only a price to be paid
for some of life's more hasty decisions.

To terminate your loneliness, reach out to the homeless.
To feed your nurturing instincts, care for the needy.
To fulfill your parenting fantasies, get a puppy.
Don't bring another life into this world
for the wrong reasons.

To make yourself happy,
pursue your passions
& be the best of what you can be.

Simplify your life.
Take away the clutter.
Get rid of destructive elements:
abusive friends, nasty habits and dangerous liaisons.

Don't abandon your responsibilities
but don't overdose on duty.

Don't live life recklessly without thought and feeling
for your family.

Be true to yourself.
Don't commit when you are not ready.
Don't keep others waiting needlessly.

Go on that trip. Don't postpone it.
Say those words. Don't let the moment pass.
Do what you have to, even at society's scorn.

Write poetry.
Love Deeply.
Walk barefoot.
Dance with wild abandon.
Cry at the movies.

Take care of yourself.
Don't wait for someone to take care of you.
You light up your life.
You drive yourself to your destination.
No one completes you - except YOU.

It isn't true that life does not get easier with age.
It only gets more challenging.
Don't be afraid.

Don't lose your capacity to love.
Pursue your passions.
Live your dreams.
Don't lose faith in God.
Don't grow old. Just grow YOU!

God is good all the time!

The New Me

The year just started and I've accomplished more than what I expected myself to do. One by one I'm conquering my demons. Ideals, thoughts I've mentioned here in my blog has finally been turned into action.

I've been so busy these past few weeks, too busy to even watch TV! I missed a number of American Idol episodes. I managed to watch a few reruns but my mind just keeps on wandering thinking of things that I must do and want to do. It's as if 24 hours a day isn't enough for me, I'm pumped up for greatness.

My journey is not exactly smooth. There are a lot of boulders on my way trying to block my path, from people who you least expected and I feel so sorry for them. No matter how big the stones they throw on me, nothing can stop me from being the best that I can be. I'm sorry... they'd have to put up and get used to the new me, the NEW T-NA!
