Im back on stoicism. Stoicism teaches the development of self-control and fortitude as a way of overcoming destructive emotions; the philosophy holds that becoming a clear and unbiased thinker allows one to understand the universal reason.

Different from most of the working folks, I actually love Mondays. You won't hear me saying, “Work na naman” or “Back to reality” with disgust after a long period of vacation.

I am maybe lucky that It happens that this is my reality and I find happiness from being productive…

Yesterday went really well and was amazing. I was able to tick each one of the tasks I committed throughout the day. So for today, I am motivated to keep this thing going. Meditating, journaling, and then taking action. Fulfilling.

When we wait for things to happen we don't only waste valuable time but also deprive ourselves of the feeling of actually achieving it.

Success is sweeter when we are conscious of our actions. When we are mindful of our steps towards our goals, the results will unfold right before your eyes is one of the best feelings you can feel ever in your life.
