Cooling Down A Burned Out Before You Get Fourth Degree Burned

Getting burned out is a common thing that happened to us in our current society. Constantly increment of work load weighs us down as if we are carrying a 50kg dumb bell on our shoulder.

On top of that, we are to take care of the other aspects of our life. Family, spouse, friends, spiritual, personal development, all of them requires our attention. Unfortunately in a competitive world we sacrifice many things in life to have our desired lifestyle. And so, a burned out is inevitable. We eventually got tired and sick of life.

Meaningful Christmas 2011

Christmas is one of those times where most spend time with friends and family. I’m no difference, I like to spend time with friends and family too.

But this year is different from all other Christmas in the past. There was no party, no gathering for me. It was a quiet Christmas with myself, some inspiring movies and Playstation 3.

Though it was a quiet Christmas, it was the most meaningful Christmas that I ever had.

A friend, Bee Bee asked if I wanted to join her in distributing gifts to a Home for the Intellectual Disabled. I immediately agreed.

And there I was on Christmas day, seeing a hall of new friends whom I’ve not yet met. I got a message, “while we are partying out there, there is a group of people whom we’ve forgotten.”

The joy begins!

Vincent, Linda, David started their singing on stage with oldies, Christmas songs to entertain the group. The rest of us started giving out sweets, biscuits, chocolates, soft toys to everyone.

 

While distributing, I started conversation with some of them. They too want love, attention and people to talk to, just like us. Some are playful, some like to sing, some are quiet, some like to talk, some want to be friends.

 

The feeling of seeing them having fun and joy is indescribable. This experience is unforgettable. This experience got me to be congruent. I was sharing about SERVICE in Rotary Youth Leadership Camp to my group last week, here I was demonstrating it.

This is the quietest Christmas I ever had, but it’s the most meaningful one. Thank you for the wonderful experience.

Thank you Universe for providing, so that I can give in this small manner. Thank you for an able body and mind, so that I can do something to humanity!

Lessons From My Mom

A great breakthrough of my life! I always have difficulty connecting deeply with my mom. I couldn’t bring myself to share my feelings with her. In fact, we wouldn’t talk about feelings in my family.

After having attended Money & You Program (a transformational program), done a few Breathwork sessions(a healing process) and many other self-discovery programs; I have always wanted to connect with my parents at a deeper level. Or, at least to verbally express my appreciation towards them. But I never had the courage to do it.
