I never let a month pass w/o getting a copy of Real Living Magazine.
My playlist consists of classic music. Classic doesn’t mean classical, like in theater or something. It’s a compilation of music from 70s, 80s and 90s. (Well, in my own dictionary )I love how my friends think I’m an old school because I’d rather listen to Styx than listen to their favorite artists. But really, I simply love listening to old music.
It’s been a month since I discovered Lorde. She’s a 17 year-old New Zealand singer-songwriter. I love the way she performs on stage. Her style is unique. The way she move, her hand gestures and her husky voice is just AWESOME. Plus, I love her hair.
Look how she performs!
At first, I can’t believe that she’s only 16 when I saw her biography (last month). But yes, she is. Some says she’s on drugs and she’s weird because of her looks but they don’t know anything about arts. (Sorry)
Another reason why I love Lorde is because.. she’s into royals and aristocracy. Maybe that’s why she wanted to be a queen bee.

“This is a free country. I can say whatever I want b—!” Oh right, you know what I mean. That’s what people say whenever someone asked them to watch their mouth. And yes, I agree about the freedom of speech. But according to my observation, this so-called freedom of speech turns out to be an instrument for bullying!
As I was reading an article in Yahoo.com, I notice that there are many comments that are irrelevant to the topic. I don’t know what they’re up to but when I scroll down I learned that someone happened to be a victim of harassment, discrimination, and maltreatment.
I thought, “What happened to people nowadays? Is it because of Social Networking Sites that giving people a chance to say what’s on their mind? Or maybe their parents didn’t raise them well?”
Your words will tell who you are, where you came from and what kind of family you have. It’s not all about you; it’s about your parents! What you say will always reflect on them whether it’s bad or good.
Remember our childhood days when people asked us about our family’s name? “What’s the name of your mother? Who’s your father?” Remember those lines? Yes. You are right. It’s because they find us cute, adorable and smart! Or maybe, we are a disgrace to our family. Which is which? The bottom-line here is, how we act will always reveal where we came from.
You don’t have to say a lot of cool things about you. It doesn’t matter because your kind of words will always tell who you are.
Thinking about negative thoughts will somehow affect your decisions and dispositions. Negative thinkers are likely to have an unhappy and discontented life. There are some who have no jobs because they are afraid to take responsibilities and scared of being discriminated. Whatever the mind expects, it finds. Many of us disregard the power of positive thinking. But it can be really helpful to achieve your dream life.
I used to be a negative thinker then. I don’t approach people because I’m afraid they will ignore me. I don’t accept invitations and proposals because I’m afraid I won’t reach their expectations and I’ll fail. I simply do not believe in myself. But I don’t know why, people do. Though I have a lot of excuses, they simply don’t quit asking my presence for a certain activity.
There is a well-respected teacher who asked me to train his children in martial arts but I turn it down regardless of high-salary. I didn’t enroll in a private school regardless of 50% discount. I didn’t compete in an academic quiz regardless of high grades that I can have. And there are lots of opportunities that I missed because of negative thoughts. Low self-esteem really pulled me down.
But I am through with these negative feelings. I am reborn into a happy and a positive thinker person. And because of these, lots of productive things had happened and will happen. Though I didn’t win a lottery, I considered myself as a very lucky person. I have a great career, new circle of friends, best investments and a very happy life.
Positive thought is a choice. And it will be your greatest decision in life.
What did I do to change my outlooks in life?
1. Avoid unhappy and unlucky people - these kind of people will always pull you down. They are poisonous to your health and to your personality.
2. Choose your friends wisely – I started to associate myself to people who have a positive outlook in life. And it helped me to overcome my insecurities in life.
3. Dream high – dreaming of success helps me to think positively, and to start planning for my future.
4. Ignore unimportant things - instead of entertaining destructive thoughts, I think of important things that can help me to have a better life.
5. Believe in yourself – thinking of negative thoughts about myself didn’t help me to achieve my goals in life, instead I missed every opportunities because of these. Confidence is the key to have a successful life.
Want a successful life? Don’t let negative thoughts ruin your dreams, think positive!

It’s kinda annoying to hear people complaining about their lives. Some of them whining about things that are actually petty to discuss, like being unhappy and unfortunate. They could have done things that will help them to solve their problems. But instead, they keep on complaining and worst, people talks to them thinks and feel the same thing.
Just like me, I belong to the group of helpful people who always help their ungrateful friends and it leads to a toxic relationship.
I used to be the their shield and weapon in every trials they faced. I used to talk about their problems in life, and I used to solve their problems because I believe that it is my responsibility to do so.
And know what happened to me? I became the most dull and worst person I didn’t imagine myself to be. I became unhappy, just like them. I became unfortunate, just like them. So you see? It is really important to be with people who will uplift you instead of pulling you down.
Yeah, someone told that lines to me before yet I am blind and deaf to understand. My reason was, I am their friend. I need to be with them no matter what. And know what? Nothing. My kindness was not enough. They became ungrateful bitches just because they didn’t accept the fact that they are wrong. Maybe I’m not that good, but I must say that I’m a righteous friend who will straighten up your mistakes and tell it to your face.
Now, I’ve learned my mistakes on NOT choosing my friends wisely.
I remembered the man who once told me that I should be with people who will shape up my life, instead of people who’ll pull me down. And now that I am old enough to know better, here I am. Creating a new life together with better people.
I became a happy person by simply making friends with happy people. People specially at work helps me to develop myself even better. My boss actually teach me of ways that I will need on becoming a person of success. I became fortunate on interfacing with group of successful people that helps me to open up my mind and dream high. This is such a great opportunity to me.
Now, who do you want to be with? The group of people mentioned on the first paragraph or the latter? The first picture or the last? Make your decision.
Many people misunderstood the term investment. Instead of investing on properties such as land they intend to spend their savings on cars, gadgets and other material things which I would say soon will be depreciated or less valued. So as a young investor, we should spend our savings on properties that will appreciate and sooner will give us benefits when the right time comes.
For now, I am investing on a land property which is only 80sq.m in a subdivision that will be developed by EFX Creative Studio. It is located at Villa Hermosa Daraga, Albay, a 4.7 hectares property that subject for project enrollment thru GLAD (Group Land Acquisition and Development) administered by HDMF (Home Development and Mutual Fund) commonly known as Pag-IBIG.
As a young investor, I chose Villa Jemena Subdivision at Villa Hermosa Daraga, Albay for it is affordable and have a great scenery. Likewise, I will not worry about having a typhoon or any calamities because of its good location. Fewer worries for my family and we can live our life with utmost security and tranquility.
So invest wisely and choose the best investment ever.
