A breath of fresh air

Woah, what a day. In the morning it was sunny and bright, and halfway through lunch it was raining cats and dogs. My day has been flipping over and over like that, but in all positive ways. I'm actually quite exhausted now but I still got a few things pending that I really need to finish tonight. Man, it's at times like these you cherish being able to get off work and not care about it anymore. But at the same time, the freedom I have of being my own boss is also great. Heck, I got to go to the gym today while everyone was probably sitting at their deskjobs ;).

I don't have much to write for a Day 10 entry other than it takes a minute to change your life and recently that has been the case for me. Every since I got dumped by my ex-girlfriend and having found out that she cheated on me and lied to me for 4 months in the end, it's been a lot of one-minute ago I was like that, a minute later, I'm different. Very often in many self-help books and just in life in general, it's at times of failure and pain that you gain the most. How ironic, those who have a smooth sailing and always succeed actually lose out more in the long run. I guess that's the case for me, as much as life's going up and down, a lot has come out of it already :) And in my last entry I talked about filling up my half-empty glass with a better liquid, well how about taking away that old glass and putting a whole new one? How about that? It's just something I was thinking about, how we really need to look at the potential of a situation in more than the typical or the normal way. Why not strive to change the whole glass rather than fill it back? We wouldn't think twice before doing that in a restaurant, why not in life?

Speaking of restaurants, I enjoyed a lovely Sushi meal with my good friend Bun last night and boy was I stuffed. I haven't had a proper sushi meal in ages! Ahh well, it was good, I learnt a lot more about the different types of sushi as well as got to taste many variations of my favorite -- eel.

So all in all, the Day 10 lesson is that sometimes it's good to look at what you got and think of a totally non-traditional way of seeing it and improving it. Sometimes it'll work wonders :). Peace out.
