While we are so busy with our day job,I want to inspire you

With a short writings based on my favorite author and blogger Leo Babauta.

Sharing our thoughts to others might inspire and encourage you to do the same.

These were the more powerful lessons, that might help you readers

So here they are:

  1. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes, and it’s okay to fail. In life we commit mistake or fail but it will make us stronger anyway, I really love  this lesson .
  2. Have empathy & try to see things from others’ perspectives.  This was the other lesson on all their lists, and again, it’s beautiful that they all took this to heart. I’ve tried to show them this through my actions, though of course I’m not at all perfect.
  3. Push out of your comfort zone.This is another one that everyone should try to do things that you are not doing regularly. Try to discover things which you think you are good at or try things that scare you, like speaking on stage or writing books. This lesson is so important to me because I have started going out of my comfort zone in teaching and discover myself in writing.
  4. Don’t spend more than you have. This is such a simple idea, but one that is rarely followed. We must start out with this mindset — live within your means, save as much as you can.
  5. Appreciate what you have & enjoy where you are right now.I love this one. It’s something that I try to embody, but also be reminded that when you are thinking about what you don’t have. Each time we’re stuck in complaint, it’s an opportunity to wake up to the beauty that’s in front of us.
  6. Sadness is a part of life, and there’s nothing wrong with feeling it. Despite what I said in the previous item, it’s OK to feel sadness, pain, grief, frustration, anxiety, anger. In fact, most of us never want to feel those things, so we’ll do whatever we can to ignore them or get away from the feelings. Instead, try to actually feel those things, as an experience. It teaches us about struggle — if we’re not willing to face our own struggles, how can we be there for others when they struggle?
  7. Don’t give up just because something gets hard. We are facing so many struggles in our life but facing those various struggles in our way is part of growth, of course, but struggles never feel good. Our job as an educator is to encourage others not to give up just because it’s hard — to keep going, and to use the struggle to grow.
  8. But don’t overwork yourself. I believe the brain doesn’t function well if you keep studying or working past the point of exhaustion, so try to  taking break, resting, going outside and do some exercise.
  9. Your reality is a reflection of the narrative you tell yourself. This is something I learned late in life, The good news is that you can learn to drop that narrative, if it leads to suffering. What would this moment be like without a narrative? Beautiful and free.
  10. Make people laugh. It makes their day brighter. Take life easy, make a story telling that might give laughter to your colleagues. Of happiness. Enjoy your day, tomorrow is another day to be grateful.

Have fun reading…
