Longing for more

When I thought that I've learned much enough to keep my life running straight to its end, I realize that I'm still living as if nothing has been learned still. This cranky life-module where I'm standing in right now is telling me that even though I had been accomplished many things quietly above average than other people (s.a. travel, children, university degree), I found myself on an endless trap where many people is stucked by, and it's for the boldest and clever ones the privilege to find an exit to this vicious cycle.

Life is giving me the toughest lessons on how to survive on a crises perhaps, yet I'm still remember how my father told me how he felt pretty much disappointed when stakes on his life strucked him really hard, and he told me "life paths are not as one really expects about them". I'm not good at translating songs, but that phrase comes from a song that says in spanish "los caminos de la vida, no son como los pensaba". Sometimes, I feel nostalgic, and I just want to embrace my dad for that; I pretty sure that he'll understand me although without saying any word.

However, I'm longing for more. I'm longing for things I know that will land on my life premises without asking for them. What you manifest is before you, said an anonymous wiseman. And guess what? Everything is happening right now, yet it cannot be seen still.

See y'all.

Learning to push myself up

During this week, I've been assigned to accomplish a couple of jobs that on my eyes looked pretty complicated and almost impossible because I had never done that before, but after moving my hands through them, I accomplished them without any complain. I bet that situation happened to you before several times, and I am sure that after doing something which seemed utter complex you ask yourself "how I did?".

We are created to do the unobjectionable. I have great admiration for people who do Parkour; when I watch any of their videos I always whisper "He'll smash his head off", yet I watch how they successfully jump from one wall to another different height wall. Do you believe that you are able to accomplish things like that? I believe so.

One of the mantras I have been practicing is to shout to my inner self "If he or she did, why don't me?". Other is "Never is too late, NEVER". Try always to talk yourself positively, and never stop doing that. So, if you expected a big essay or some of those typical long reading posts, I don't use to do that, so I believe everything has to be made step by step without hesitation.

See you next time.

Today in a nutshell

We only live once is a common ancient saying which lots of people take it so seriously, so I am one of those people. Unfortunately, our daily journey swallow all the things we would like to do, and anyone should heed all that scrapy and minimalist things that stay us away from the people or activities we love most. In my humble opinion, whether if you had a great or a pounded day, we should be more thankful to everybody and with the things that happens to us, we don't know if we have been taken apart from a deadly situation. Once we accomplish what we had determined for today, regarding the type of activity we are assigned to do, we take that burden apart, and we feel excited by now.

How did I wrote that paragraph? Easy, by watching that picture, and start each sentence with the first four letters I see (YUIO). Welcome back to blogging.

Why does this happens to me?

This is not a song, it's a commonly asked question that is constantly in my head trying to figuring out why the life it's so unfair with me. It could be your case though in a different manner or scenario. At my 35 years old, although I don't describe myself as a role model, I have lots of experiences to tell you. When somebody tells me something I am sure whether that happened to me before or some of my acquaintances or friends had lived that. However, I am in constantly learning, I try to listen to everybody regardless it's age because there are people even if they are younger than me, they had lived moments or experiences that I hadn't. I am very grateful that I live in a new learning stage in my life. Ten years ago, I foresaw other type of future for me, but now I see that I made several mistakes that a young person normally do. I don't hold back. I learned that my life can be easier if I focus on helping others and giving more than receiving. The only person who can push you up is yourself, nobody is really interested in your life more than yourself.

I always give the best of me on whatever I do, I work, I study, I teach, I learn. If I can't do it, I don't want to be reminded like somebody who always tried though it couldn't achieved. So, when I asked again why life is so unfair, I will wait until the right moment and the right time comes to me.

Thank you for reading, if you like this post, please comment or share.

New Adventures

Life has granted me with lots of positive changes on me even if the price has been high and stressful, but with happiness and grateful moments in a bundle. This 2017 has been a particular year because it's the first year where I lived a whole year outside my country trying a new adventure in Los Angeles, California. This year my second daughter was born, and she adds to my life a special motivational feeling who makes me stronger than before. Sometimes I feel weak, like I just wanna give up (as the Eminem song Till I collapse says), but when I come home, and I see my daughters, they remind me what I am living for. Also, this 2017 I enrolled in the college in order to get a degree for Electricity and Construction Maintennance. I completed my first semester, and I passed my first three courses like a champ. But it hasn't easy because it's not equal studying being single than being married and having two daughters, there is no comparison, the time is really limited so I have to practice how to puzzle my time to complete lots of tasks on a day. I have some stories to tell such as one when I had to stop to pee behind Rancho Park in Cheviot Hills because I had driven about 2 hours to get to my house, and was 1 hour remaining to go, so I cannot hold in anymore, it feels like your bladder will pop off, so I stopped like I wanted to do something in Rancho Park, it was pretty dark, that made me easy to stop behind a tree even if the traffic was still running on the street, nobody cared what I had stopped to, it felt so good to release that amount of pee I was holding in, and I get back to the car, and I continued driving home. In addition, I had learned how to do field work in other areas, such as construction, electricity and remodel. On 2018 I want to achieve new goals to be added to my professional background though I don't have a clear panorama, but I know that working hard and climbing up all the obstacles, I will achieve. I wish you a happy hollidays and a happy 2018 to everybody. Thanks.

Motivos para levantarse temprano

Dormir es delicioso, especialmente cuando el cuerpo lo necesita. Sentir cuando de repente te encuentras navegando en una dimensión desconocida, en un mundo creado por dónde la vida te ha llevado, por escenarios creados por el surrealismo de tu subconsciente. Sabes que tu peor enemigo es el despertador, sea tu aparato digital o el biológico que te despierta inoportunamente. ¿A quién le gusta disfrutar ese momento de profundo descanso?

Dicen los que saben de esta ciencia del descanso, la cantidad de horas diarias que debes dormir es de 8, consecutivas y sin pausas. Siempre he pensado, el dormir bien reduce la amargura, vean a un niño despertarse luego de su siesta de la tarde, se despierta con actitud “mírame y no me toqués”, así somos los grandes también ¿verdad?

Imaginemos tu horario de trabajo de 8am a 5pm y vives lejos de él y en horas de tráfico mañanero tardas mínimo una hora para llegar a tiempo, también tienes que pasar dejando a los niños (si tienes) a la escuela, ellos entran a las 7am. Debes calcular estar listo con todo a las 6:30am, para primero dejar a los niños, y luego llegar a tiempo a marcar la entrada. ¿A qué horas debes levantarte si ese fuera tu caso? Forzosamente te tocará madrugar.

¿A qué horas te levantas cuando no debes ir a trabajar o a estudiar? Un día libre, un fin de semana o en tus vacaciones. Soy de los que piensa que el tiempo es muy valioso, cuando te veas en el espejo llorarás el tiempo perdido. Yo madrugo para salir a correr, ir al gimnasio, leer un libro o incluso apreciar el amanecer. Es posible que tengas otros motivos para que aproveches las horas que le restan al día, doy por seguro que ya debes tener programado tu reloj despertador.

Te puedes preguntar que aún no tienes razones para levantarse temprano cuando no lo necesito. Quieres realizar nuevas actividades que complementen tu vida, las mismas 24 horas son las que siempre han limitado el día. Es muy positivo levantarse temprano, si deseas disciplinar tu cuerpo y tu mente, es mejor asociar la hora de despertarse con actividades específicas. Ejemplos: leer un libro por las mañanas, salir a caminar, meditar, escribir, ir al gimnasio, salir a correr, andar en bicicleta, sacar a pasear a tu mascota; podemos listar muchas actividades motivadoras para darle unas horas más al día por las mañanas.

Corazón de campeón

Muchos dicen, los hombres no lloran, ayer vi lo contrario. Lo vi en vivo cuando el atleta colombiano Oscar Figueroa se alzaba el oro en los JJOO de Río de Janeiro 2016 en la disciplina de levantamiento de pesas masculino categoría hasta 62kg, levantando en envión 142kg y 2 tiempos 176kg haciendo un total de 318kg.

Un ejemplo de esfuerzo, dedicación, mucha disciplina. No soy colombiano pero fue admirable su participación. Me gustó especialmente ver la forma como cayó y no contuvo el llanto que no paraba minutos después.
