I Dont Want To Retire!

Probably the real essence of not retiring is not to stop thinking about beautiful ideas and experiences and sharing them.
I aspire to inspire with a message from God to mankind and lessons learned from parenting, travels, home improvements, blogging, Feng Shui, Traditional Chinese Medicine, health and wellness, and many more.

One difficult season

Why am I not inspired to write about anything these days? Maybe it’s because there are a lot of things or tasks mixed up in my mind. I was supposed to have just one goal, which is to earn money to alleviate the financial distress my family is experiencing now, but the ways and means are just too many, they are all mixed up. I cannot focus on one area yet because I cannot let go of the other opportunities I haven’t tried yet.

I guess what I can do at the moment is to organize and schedule my activities first. As of now there are no conflicts in my schedules, but time will come there will be conflicts so I have to prioritize. Whenever I think of prioritizing, another goal aside from my main goal usually becomes a necessary evil, but that other goal is usually always good because it has a bigger purpose.

For example, one direction I’m taking now to earn is to sell health gadgets. Another is to sell condominium units. I’d like to do both, but at the back of my mind, I’d like to help the sick, so I have to prioritize my selling of health gadgets, though it can be hard as selling condo units.

While I’m not yet organized, I am relieved whenever I suddenly come across inspiring materials like the one below whose author is unknown and which I’ve rearranged a bit:

Don’t let the pain of one season destroy the joy of all the rest
Don’t judge life by one difficult season

If you give up when it’s winter, you will miss the promise of your spring,
The beauty of your summer, fulfillment of your fall

Persevere through the difficult patches
And better times are sure to come some time.

Live simply, love generously, care deeply, speak kindly
Leave the rest to God.

Happiness keep you sweet, trials keep you strong
Sorrows keep you human, failures keep you humble
Success keeps you glowing,
But only God keeps you going.

Aspire to inspire before you expire.

I know the feeling of having too many goals. I often find myself wanting to do too many things and not knowing which to do first. Or which to do at all.
