Are you content with your life? Or do you feel you never have enough and not good enough?
Many times I feel not having enough and wanting more. Also comparing myself to others and this makes me want to compete. My mind was rushing with too many ‘to do list’..but nothing unsettled and worries seems to be on the top list. This feelings makes me feel insecure…or in another words ‘sick’.
Looking back, i wasted my time and energy. Enough is enough! I had it..its time to take control of my life. I believe we can change whatever we want, however there are few things beyond our control that can’t be change.
Life is a beautiful journey! Embrace what comes in life, accept what ever challenges and appreciate even the little things. Having an attitude of gratitude makes life more meaningful.
Looking at myself in the mirror, a lady at her early 40s, with few grey hair.. hiding in between the dye burgundy hair. Fine yet visible line and wrinkles here and there, uneven and unhealthy skin. How
I get tempted when i receive any beauty treatment brochure and card or new new skin care product and supplement that proven to make you look younger than your age. For sure the good product comes with good price but somehow not all the product suits your skin. There was one time, i tried a product after a good review from friends but when i put it on my face it feels so tight, well i thought its the effect but it got worsen with itchy red dots on my face. Its just doesn’t suits me, so i stop. Now i am happy with just simple skincare i bought from Watson.
Now that i am at my 40s, i want to learn more on how to age beautifully. Allowing myself to grow ..not old but wise. I have been trying to know if there anyway of having youthful skin the cheapest way. And its true that to have radiant and beauty skin are not by using skincare alone but from deep within and some technique. Trying to answer my own question, i did some research and today I am sharing with you how we can do it.
There are some technique that helps us get that radiant, healthy skin without any injection or knife under the skin…just by using the touch of your fingers and the right methods both using massage and workout.
Here are few videos collection i found on website for you to try. I didn’t know there are different types of massage but i have here..

TANAKA FACE SELF MASSAGE
What great about this method is that its free, you can do it anywhere and anytime. Ask someone to massage for you or just Do It Yourself! You can even do face exercise while driving, as long as you can focus on your driving and don’t mind people call you crazy.
Have fun trying and please don’t forget to SMILE!
I was looking through www.musiciansfriend.com website to get information and updates on new music instrument, while listening to music, it was ‘Happy’ by Pharrel Williams. The music bring me back to the cinema, imagining the big screen, smelling and eating popcorn, i hear laughter and sees my family with me, really makes my day. Wow! music is really powerful, it anchor our emotions and feelings…it bring us back to the important memories that we keep in our mind.
Let me remind or refresh you how happy Gru was in Depicable Me 2 when he falls in love and was on ‘cloud nine’. He was indeed so happy, excited and so deeply in love.
But can we really be happy instantly by listening to music or songs? There are possibility but there are few steps you need to take before you can be happy.
Depending on what mood you are in right now. As human, we tend to listen to music or songs that are related to our emotions, for example, you are having a relationship problems and you are in a confusion state of mind, i bet listening to ‘happy’ makes you more sad and angry.
ACCEPT AND RESPECT YOUR FEELINGS
Don’t tell to my face.. ‘relax’ or ‘don’t get angry’ when i am angry. Leave me alone, let me digest this feeling.. why am i angry and what trigger this emotions. Being angry is not a sin, its part of our feelings but its important to learn to control your anger. Don’t forget to breath deeply and do not log in into any social media as you will tend to express your anger in public.
BE LIKE TAYLOR SWIFT
Be like this smart and intelligent young lady, Taylor Swift. Write down your feelings, for her not only she feels better but she makes money out of it. She produce great song from bad experiences..well, most artist does.
EXPRESS YOUR FEELINGS
I don’t keep grudge that’s why if someone really pissed me off .. i get to the person ask what happened until i satisfied with the reason then i slowly … slowly .. forgive but will not forget, because a lesson should not be forgotten. Once you feel calm and relax, you can ask or share your feelings with the person or someone else who can help you go through the situation.
Please make sure you sharing to the right person and communicate face to face or by calling. Avoid using text, this will create miscommunication. Sharing to the wrong or busybody friends will get you into trouble, you don’t want any story or text become a viral sensation…do you?
BACK ON TRACK
You can choose to stay angry or shift to different mood. You can tell the world how sad your life is, how pathetic or sucks your life is or change!
Be emotional intelligent, you know what you capable of, how strong you are and how great you are.
BE YOURSELF! BE HAPPY
Don’t compare yourself with other people. Be yourself and be happy! Yes ..no doubt we all have haters but there are people who loves and admire us. Forget haters, they hates you because they actually wanted to be like you and that’s for sure.
LISTEN TO GREAT MUSIC
When you feel sad, don’t listen to much of romantic sad songs or heavy metal that lead you head banging. There is nothing wrong with what music you want to listen as long as it helps heals your pain and calm your mind.. go for it! I still recommend #pharrelwilliams #happy song.
There is another song that really can makes your ego grow a little wild and gives your confident a boost if you are a woman. I assure you, when you listen to this song, you will feel like walking in front of the jerks and just walk.. Thank you Tom Jones for this awesome sexy song.
I hope you enjoy reading my simple tips and personal opinion. Have a great weekend!
