N.O.W ends here

5 Feb

It all boils down to today.

There is no “future” as it is only a figment of the mind. There’s only “then” and “now”.

Don’t stress yourself over tomorrow. But if you ever do, as humans are prone to, take a break from the world and ask yourself, 

“Am i happy?” 

“Am i satisfied?”

Don’t think. FEEL. Right this moment. We are our emotions. We are reigned by it.  

Yes, i admit, i won’t be always going to think like this. If only we could not worry all the time as if our time here on Earth is only borrowed. Oh wait, it is.
But this is a moment where i could be centered on the “present”– of the “gift” of life and evaluate then and now. So i would. Because i can. 

So, i will tell you again.

There is no “tomorrow” until it happens. Why worry now?

The time you first started to read this is different from the state you’re in when you’re here now. At the end. Of N.O.W.

the scene IN A RELATIONSHIP for 5, 6… 15 years?

Then suddenly, you’re SINGLE.


You keep hearing people say, “What a wasted years.” Or sympathies for the lost years spent with him.

Its like finding out your TRUTH is a MISTAKE. Or like you’ve been blind and suddenly you see. Or CAGED and finally you’re FREE.


Let me tell you this.

Those years are not wasted years. It’s not something “better left forgotten”. It is not a dark hole in your past. It is NOT NOTHING. It is SOMETHING because it’s a part of YOU.


DON’T WASTE a heartache to bitterness and other dark forces that’ll control your future.

EMBRACE IT for it happened for a reason; with a cause to make you better.


Remember the past. Relive the moments of happiness and of learnings.

Smile when you remember the butterflies, the chemistry, the excitement, the awesomeness, the laughters, the craziness. Feel the gratitude of having experienced those. NOT EVERYONE IS FORTUNATE to that.

Forgive the heartaches. Forgive him. Forgive yourself. ACCEPTANCE.

Relearn the lessons. SHARPEN YOURSELF.

And LOVE still.


Carry on without the person. NO REGRETS.

Be joyous for the love you had been given. Be amazed by the love you were capable of giving. LOVE IS A GIFT.

A response to an Uncle’s gift.

“The more talent that a sports, business, or service team possesses, the greater potential it has– and the better its leader can be.” – Beyond Talent, John Maxwell

It was exactly like that yesterday, uncle. I had two reliable PAs that it has become better for me to do my job. It felt great. I had less leg work but more decisions to consider and see through. Over all, it wasn’t bad at all. I like seeing the team less stressed and more smiles.

In my early days as PA, there were lots of stressful moments, breaking points, and shed tears. I don’t want to experience that anymore. Less of that is “more” for me. I was able to deal with things more effectively than before and it helped a lot that i had my efficient team.

My superior was really helpful too. Telling me what should i now consider and this next quote from the book expressed what i had to struggle with.

“Intelligence, imagination, and knowledge are essential resources, but only effectiveness converts them into results.”

Great things are always in my mind and its hard for me to bring it out and see its full potential. It saddens me.

I also remember Malcolm Gladwell in his book, “Outliers”. He mentioned successful people didn’t depend solely on their talent. They had bountiful backgrounds they used to their advantage. Like, Bill Gates, i think, he practically grew up in a computer where computer was so exclusive still because he has the means to be close to it. When computer was still evolving, he was there to see it and even helped build it.

I may not be well endowed like Gates, but if i could just know and look at what i have now to use to my advantage and have a lot of guts to actually to it. I need all the guts i can in the industry i have now. If i dream of doing something, then maybe i could step up and ask for it… Things like that.

I’m trying to gather my wits to muster that. But for now, i’ll try to learn how to CAST well, and speak up if i want to be faring well and great at my present job.

I hope i’m still not confusing you, uncle. Hehe

Thanks so much po for the book!
