About Me

I have done a lot of things in my life and have also worked in many different jobs to make a living and to experience life. This blog is just some of my musings, sometimes funny, sometimes inspirational, sometimes sad, sometimes angry, sometimes simple but all the time, it's just me.

Christmas in January, Happy Birthday and Happy New Year

When You bless the day
I just drift away
All my worries die
I know that I'm alive
I get wings to fly
I'm alive ... Yeah
When You call on me
When I hear You breathe
I get wings to fly
I feel that I'm alive
When You look at me
I can touch the sky
I know that I'm alive
When You bless the day
I just drift away
All my worries die
I'm glad that I'm alive
You've set my heart on fire
Filled me with love
Made me a soul on clouds above
I couldn't get much higher
My spirit takes flight
'Cause I am alive
God, You know that I'm alive

Today, I end my 30 day journey of living a life of no-regrets. And it feels like it's Christmas, New Year and Birthday combined.

I have received my extraordinary gift, my life and I have an exceptional calling to be the very best God has created me to be. And I am unwrapping my gift. I will love God and I will love others, I will be grateful and I will forgive.

One thing I have taken and would like for you to take if you have been following my journey is this - Ignite and restore passion in your life.

Enjoy every single moment, it is a precious gift. Nothing ever happens without passion, it is the driving force behind all art, music, literature, drama, movie, architecture and thus life.

Do not loose passion over the stresses and pressures of life. Don't let pressure and stresses steal and kill your passion for your family, friends and even careers. Don't let them kill your passion for life.
In order to keep our passion alive and thriving, we need four key ingredients.

1. Love
This is the foundation of a passionate and purposeful life. The fuel that fires the passion in a relationship is love, it is the fuel that fires productivity at work. And love is the fuel that keeps us growing in our relationship with God.

2. Integrity
Integrity is simply uniting what we say we believe and the way we live. Lack of integrity means you say one thing and live another way. This will kill passion in your life. Our hearts become divided and we loose focus in our passionate life.

3. Forgiveness
I have spoken a lot of forgiveness in the last month. Nothing drains passion quicker than an unresolved conflict. Resentment is the great passion killer. Resentment and bitterness are corrosion agents that will corrode our lives. The people who hurt us do not suffer the consequences, we do. So forgive, forgive the hurt and bitterness and bring passion back.

4. Enthusiasm
A lot of English words derive from Greek words like enthusiasm. It comes from En and Theos. In and God. Literally meaning God within. If you want to live passionately, focus on your relationship with God, have a passionate and enthusiastic relationship with God.

Love. Integrity. Forgiveness. Enthusiasm. Passionate Life.

My goal in this journey is for me to live intentionally so that I will have no regrets. I pray that when I reach my last day on Earth, I will know that I have lived completely the life I was planned to live.

I have changed in this one month and my hope to you is that maybe some of my writing has began the thought process for you to start changing, to start thinking.

How about you? Is your mission on Earth fulfilled, finished? Are you sure? Here's a test to find whether your mission on Earth is finished:
Are you are reading this carefully? If you are, means you are alive. And if you are alive, your mission is not finished.

God bless you all and infinite love and gratitude. Please forgive me if I have cause you any hurt or suffering.

Take care and be well.
