What are you planning tomorrow?
Then there was the response “I don’t have a definite plan. Play it by ears?”
Fact. This is non-fiction. Sad fact: You’re not the heroine nor part of the story.
Wouldn’t you want to answer this question with whatever I like to do or been putting off all my life.
Is it time to become the next post-teen popstar everyone is predicting to be not recognized a year after fame?
We’ll never definitely ran out of answers so I was annoyed when I heard the real-life conversation of retirees.
The Life of the Rich Retirees
I worked in an environment where I’m surrounded by the elite. The inheritance were passed down from one generation to another till the squanderer is born and so is the dreamer/ambitious.
Honestly it hurts and inspiring to be around them. They are the proof that abundance is a reality; it’s up to you on how much work are you willing to endure without losing sight of the reward.
You can go high or low . . . low . . . low . . . sing it.
(I’m in a mall while writing this post and all I can hear is that low low low. I wonder what exercise did the participants of Zumba are doing. No matter, they sure make a loud noise. Or are they doing Taekwondo instead.)
Back to the abyss of self-pity where I should rise like a phoenix on fire.
After years of working, I get used to the conversation. Every time I hear their trips from one country to the next as if they are on the Amazing Race Canada always on the go, I smile and say to myself that I’ll be a traveller long before I retire.
Talaga lang ah. May C-Train naman at bus.
Travelling is what I value next to health and financial independence. To save up I am following the principle of minimalism with a bit of Kondomari.
Marie Kondo teaches people to organize things and fold clothes every neat freak (guilty as charge) would follow like a yoga routine. Breathing in orderliness. Breathing out wrinkled-free pants.
You should watch her video on YouTube and soon you’ll be asking yourself about possession “Does this spark joy?” If not give it away. (I like to be both the giver and receiver but leaning more towards the latter.)
1 . . . 2 . . . 3 . . . snap out of the Kondomari trans. What do you value the most?
The Life You Want to Live
Where do you want to go? What do you want to do?
What are you doing to achieve your goal?
Exercise all the theories/lessons you learned on books, blogs, documentaries etc.
While at it, don’t forget to have physical workout. Because health is wealth.
I really have to insist staying fit since I’m still here at the mall mentally dancing.
Konti na lang gusto ko ng sumayaw.
I better leave so I wouldn’ missed work and be inspired by the retirees having tan skin here and there that doesn’t look well up close or from afar.
So here’s an inspiring Zumba workout song I’m living for you, a battle cry for financial independence.
“I’m a survivor (what?). I’m not gon’ give up (what?). I’m not gon’ stop (what?) I’m gon’ work harder (what?).”
