[it was a hectic month so that I broke my habit, not arranging some time for myself to jot down what interested me in March. Yet there’s a saying, it’s better late than never.]
2 things to build in life – a great group of amazing friends & enough money saving for survival for long time
I came across an article mentioning these 2 things and found that I was lucky enough to have these two at the moment. It might relate to the inner peace I’ve just figured out in recent months.
Friends of mine have got my back; some to cheer me up whenever I’m in need even late at night or early in the morning dawn; some to take care of my daily healthcare by the act of forcing me to register a-whole-year-plan yoga practice; some to pamper me with memorable trips almost on a monthly basis; some to share a desire on giving back to community – education purpose, etc. Words just cannot describe my deep gratitude to such kindness, as well as my luck to have to them in each moment.
Being well-planned & well-managed on personal finance truly free up my mind. While meeting my mortgage due each month I manage to have some savings for my dream trip – Europe, and for some activities, not mentioned to an adequate amount of money for several-month survival without sacrificing my current living standard in case of losing job suddenly. This enables me to do what I love and to choose suitable corporate environment I would like to work for.
To sum up, these two things are worth building up and maintaining for lifetime. Here is the article’s link for your good read if needed http://tynan.com/twothings
Simplify my facebook news feed
I’d been bored with auto-suggested news fed by facebook algorithm and felt somehow I lost control on what kind of news/information shown on my facebook homepage. It’s seemingly overwhelmed with irrelevant ads or acquaintances’ updates that I didn’t care or wasn’t eager to spend my time on. I came up with restructuring my facebook news feed, by unliking pages I no longer interested, unfollowing friends with negative thoughts or day-in-day-out mourning, etc. Small acts with enormous impact. Though less time surfing facebook each day, I still feel connected, timely catch up my friends’ latest updates, and read good articles /watch great videos through facebook feeds.
The reason is too personal to speak out yet ‘forgiving myself’ truly makes me happy. Just want to make a remark.
