trying out a new way of setting goals

Vision without action is a daydream. Action without vision is a nightmare. – Japanese Proverb
I looked in the mirror today and realized I am already getting older. Honestly, I keep forgetting how old I am until my next birthday comes and people would ask my age. That's when I would instantly use calculator application on my desktop and subtract the year I was born to the current year today and I couldn't believe that the resulting difference represents my own age. Haha! I keep telling them though what I read somewhere that it is not polite to ask a woman her age. At the back of my mind, however, I would already have some panicky feeling about my age and how much I have yet to accomplish in life. Has it been less than a year ago  since I've written about my legacies in life?

I believe I'm still not far from fulfilling my dreams for my family and even the goals I have set for myself although I am afraid that without a clear timeline, I would not have enough time to fulfill them. I must admit that sometimes I would want to have a clear vision of what I want done within a certain period of time. Although I really don't know if I'll reach that certain period of time because everything works according to God's will, it still makes a difference to have short-term and long-range goals so that I won't go farther away from fulfilling them.

Interestingly enough, I have found a social networking site that can help me lay down the goals, plans, activities that hubby and I have set together to accomplish within a period of time. This is relatively new to me but the site allows me to add our goals in private mode. However, just as there are goals and activities that are just too personal to be shared, there are also goals that we'd like to share for others to see and get involved with.

Sometimes it would take another person, even a stranger or someone with similar goals as ours, to drive us into achieving them. Get inspired to do something new without going too far away with fulfilling all that you really intend to do in life. Like me, if this is something you also find interesting, you know what to do - Register now and get started. I actually just got myself registered today and found it interesting to be able to read what other people's goals are and what they are actually doing to achieve them. If you'd like to do the same, you will only have to fill up just a couple of things, the same way you would do with other social networking sites. Not sure? Answers here. I'll see you there then.

a coffee-inspired life, anyone?

I ran into this beautiful video presentation about seeing life through a cup of coffee. I'd like to share it with you guys so we can all have a coffee-inspired life. :-)



I guess, at some point, we are guilty for choosing the best cups even if what we really wanted was the coffee.

Today, I resolve to enjoy  my coffee everyday even when they are not served from the best cups! Care to drink with me?

our toddler copycat

Having a baby is really life-changing. I really believe that becoming parents is the best thing that has ever happened to me and hubby. She’s already one year and five months old – look at how far we’ve come! Even though we’re working everyday and she is under the care of our nanny while we go to work, we are still able to closely watch her grow. I can still say that we’re still hands-on parents to her. You see, we are working in the convenience of our home; so there’s not a single day that we don’t get to see her.

Our toddler is a real copycat. She would observe how I would click and scroll the mouse and type something on my keyboard. She would like to do them as well. Oh well, what is ten minutes a day of distraction, right?

Two weeks ago, she showed us another talent of hers. She can already climb up our rustic furniture in three counts. Next thing we knew she was already standing and smiling at us, as if to brag about her newly discovered talent. This week, she climbed up the rustic chair that was placed near the door of our vintage-looking house (LOL). Our toddler copycat stood on the furniture so she could be tall enough to reach the doorknob and to turn it open. Clever girl! I guess she had been studying how we would open the door so she could copy it. And she did. Fortunately, she’s not strong enough to open the door herself. Right now, I am the nervous mom each time she would do that because if nobody notices her doing her climbing stunts, she could really hurt herself if she falls.



Now, it seems like she wants to try the stairs as well. How do you think I am feeling recently?

music monday - where are you now?

Happy Monday, everyone. We've been singing along with this song that's been playing on the radio for weeks now. So, I'd like to share this one as my entry for Music Monday. It's called Where Are You Now by Honor Society band. Ever heard of it? Even though not all the lyrics to the song fit me but somehow I can relate a little (or probably more) - especially when it comes to memories of high school and friends, best friends and some secret stuff. :-)

Okay. This video already has one million plus views. So I wouldn't be surprised if you've already watched it. LOL. Just wanted to share. So, for those who have not yet seen it or heard the song, go ahead and indulge. :-)



So, what do you remember when you listen to this song?
