Other than that , I constantly still running, cooking, eat less meal. I couldn’t say I only done for good things in this year. I made mistakes, I might bad person for some people. But I learn and rebuild myself from my mistakes. I would not repetition on my mistakes and my failures.

Dive into your fear


mission

Literally I can’t swim !i didn’t attend swimming lesson.The only thing I have is ambition. I learn from kids , i learn from elder people every time I went to swimming pool .”Look the floor, look the sky ” how they tech for swimming but I also apply to my life. We are not always look sky , and same thing we have to look floor. I usually swim at child pool and around 200m. Since from last month I started swim at adult pool (around 8 feet deep and 50 meter).I gradually increase my distance 200m to 800m within under half an hour.And I extend my running 3k to 4 k within under 30 min.

If you don’t have full control over your life , you will wait for things happen to you ! Don’t wait for opportunity , create them.

Physically stop and resting make you lazy in swimming and running. Keep going and keep swimming make your mussel stronger and your body will used to exhaustive.Yes that is the logic I apply in real life too.You might probably hear about the story of rabbit and tortoise story of how rest can lose your competitor.I don’t think about my competitor as other person,I think about my competitor as myself of current. Current myself must be stronger than past myself. If I might lay down on the ground , I won’t be reach to this place. So don’t let yourself lazy and slow down.Keep up your speed and sharp your brain.

Having different experience never means that your experience is the right & the experience of other is invalid

Some of runner said put music while you run, some runner said run without music, some runner said evening run is better.There must be hundred/thousand of advice from different experiences.The rule you cant follow doesn’t mean, you cant do that entire other ways.Happiness in the life is listen the facts and accept the things we can do. Do not disagree just to show how clever you are or to boost your ego.

work-out February is over,there are 2 months we had passed through 2015.You might haven’t notice time flies while you celebrate holidays,New Years and so on.

Running

My running journey was over a year been now.But I didn’t run constantly. Run and stop.I don’t like that my habit .I am good at start something and bad at ending. As Richard St.John said Success is a continuous journey .Yes! running is not one milestone. 2015 I start run back 3 days in week ,started from this January.I can’t say I will slim like model but I can feel my body lighter,healthy and sweaty.

Travel Often,Travel safe,Travel wise,travel far….

I’m believe there is one common habit for all human being is traveling.Travel for leisure,travel for vacation,travel for seeking happiness,travel for adventurous.I have love and hate relationship with traveling. I love travel,discover new friendship but I hate saying good bye the places I love,the food I enjoy,the people who admire me.I made it trip after 1 and half month from my UK trip. Recently I just read about 15 Reasons Why Frequent Travelers Are More Likely To Be Successful quite reflect on my life chaining.

Learning

Is learning is count on hobby ,yes it is one of my favorite hobby.Since from school to working I always love to learn. I remember once in my English class after Uni,I felt I am only one who bad English and luck of vocabulary.Then I start write each new words (from dictionary,movies and every words which I discover and didn’t know)after that I learned French. But start from I relocated to Singapore I stop learning my language.I though Singapore is Majority English speaking country and my English will be improve. But I am totally wrong, between mutli-accent I lost my American English accent and didn’t improvement.These are the reason why Start from Mid February I start back my learning skill back.
