Sunday Social: Spend It Well

Sunday, July 02, 2017

Today, I went to service and I did not expect for the Word to hit me hard that much. And now, I'm actually blogging about it. So for my first post this month, I would like to share my realization. It's all about maximizing out talents and how we should spend it well.

Coincidentally, Marks and Spencer posted a video that was on point and says it all. Watch it below:

One of the things I cannot forget from today's learnings is that our time is equal to our life and if we spend it so much on things that are not really pushing us forward, such as addiction to social media (stop scrolling you), binge-watching TV shows, playing games, etc. then it will be a complete waste of your talents, time, and life. Don't get me wrong, I have my fair share of mundane hobbies that I can't let go, too, and doing so doesn't really mean you're already an addict or it's a total waste. But if you're doing it in excess that it destroys your relationships and your values, then it's definitely doing more harm than good. I can't say I'm addicted per se, but nonetheless, I do believe that I have traded more of my time to just lazing around instead of working on my goals. I have so many to accomplish that I keep writing them down thinking that I will be able to achieve it and to remind myself of it. Little did I know that I'm actually turning them down most of the time because I can always find an excuse to rather not do it in the moment. It's a constant cycle and it never ends but why do I find myself on the losing end?

Then here comes the feeling of not accomplishing things at this age. I do know I have some but there's this black hole of emptiness that makes me doubt it. I feel like I can give so much more and I want to change that.

Like one of the quotes taught to us today, "the brain can learn and unlearn things." It's just a matter of changing how you think and how you perceive things. So... I might be lost now but I want to cross off more goals on my list before I get too old or before it's too late. I know that I have my limitations like resources and juggling the work-life balance, but I still got to try, right? I need to stop making excuses and start owning up to my decisions. It's time for me to take control over my life and time. It's time for me to claim 2017 as my year of contentment and moving forward.

It's still all a blur and I know I'm not really making any sense but I already got something in my mind now. I just got to remove some baggage and do some spring cleaning (life-wise).

Love lots, xx
