At a hostel in San Sebastien, I saw a book shelf on lounge area. I found an interesting book, The Art of Happiness, 10th Anniversary Edition: A Handbook for Living, written by Dalai Lama, and Howard C. Cutler.
I decided to finish reading it, before I checked out from hostel. (I did.)
The book explained about being able to train mind, and achieve happiness. (Thanks for the advice. I will apply this in my life.) Every day, life is an up and down journey.
When nothing goes my way, I always tell myself, "I am alive, and breathing."
A while ago, my teacher from Sonoma State University told me, and my class, "Stress and Diet." If I am able to relieve my stress, and eat somewhat a healthy diet, I possibly live a longer life.
I mentioned this before in one of my previous blog entries. My high school PE coach told me, and my class, "Life is all about choices." You can say whatever you want to me. At the end of the day, I make the decision. It can be either right, or wrong. Perhaps, I may never know the answer at all. As time never stops, choices keep going, until the day I die.
When I was younger, I would have a difficult time to say "no" to people. I have realized that it is impossible to please everybody. I read a book that helped me a lot in saying "no" to people. It told me, "Sorry, I will not be able to make it." (Sorry, I forgot the title of the book.)
Earlier today, during my group job interview, I was asked, "What would you be doing 5 years from now?"
"That is a very good question. That would be tough. I cannot exactly answer you that question. 5 years ago, I hated reading, and writing. Now, I love it. I am a blogger. If I ever get this job, I would build a skill. Last year, I read a book about developing different skills in different jobs. Sorry, I forgot the title of the book. The book explained that I am able to build more experience, and apply it for my passion. Everything is connected. I am planning to become a realtor, and I will be working for my good friend's dad. He has been a realtor, and broker for the last 33 years. I would build another skill as well. I love my blog on journaling, and my Instagram account on hiking. 5 years from now, hopefully, I can find myself a woman. We shall see. I continue on reinventing myself." I responded to her, and the 2 candidates.
Everybody laughed at my ending words.
In my life, I continue on applying my natural superhuman power of peacefulness, gratefulness, and forgiveness. (I have mentioned this many times in my previous blog entries.) Also, I continue on building relationships, and connecting with people.
Ask, and listen. (So, I can hear more stories from people, and learn from it. Everybody has a story to tell.)
We live in an imperfect world. Do what you gotta do. Go with what you want. It's your choice. It's your life.
Peace be with you.
