Gratitude isn't only a buzz word, it's an attitude to live by daily.  Before knowing how gratitude works, Forgiveness must be applied.
-
💫I've forgiven the perpetrator who caused the hurtful events, the closed ones I supposed to trust turned their backs from me.
-
☄️Forgiveness doesn't mean agreeing with what had happened but it allows me to be free from burden and no longer live in pain.
-
✨I'm grateful for the adventurous past which has helped me grown faster than the same age group.
✨Grateful for not fitting in typical mindsets, that proves I think differently and able to view things with different perceptions. ✨Grateful for rejections which bring clarity that we don't come across at this moment in life, that actually create short cuts to where I meant to be.
✨Grateful for old school medical system, that encouraged myself to dive in further researches, gained knowledge, and turned into my inspiration.
✨Grateful for being looked down, laughed at or my voice wasn’t heard, that led me build a platform to have bigger voice out.
✨Grateful for the obstacles so I learned how to climb over it.
✨Grateful for making me who I am and what I have today.

Forgiveness + Mindfulness + Gratitude = Find The Gem In The Puddle | Live In The Present Moment.

Things happened at the right time in the right place
-
I found this maker faire by accident and thought would be great for the kids, especially my boy came to show us his creation, I knew we couldn’t miss this fair.
-
I got a strong feeling this faire was the right place to be for the kids and the husband (as a software engineer and a mega nerd).
-
Once we got here, I had tons of ideas bursted out from my brain and had the urge and fire 🔥 in my heart
-
I could see how my husband could use his talent combine with the second project I’ve always wanting to kick start , in order to help and serve.
-
Is that my intuition?! Is that the inner voice That I need? Is the universe telling me sth?

All my in-laws remain safe and fortunate in San Francisco.  However, the wildfire smoke continues haze over the area, it hurts seeing people and animals lost their homes and loved ones; plants got destroyed; and fire has become the key feature of the state. 
Always love and be happy with what you already have, give your hands to the ones who seek for help and support the hero who fight for us.

#Selflove Soul Sunday
Meditation 🧘🏻‍♀️ + Red Light Therapy = Time saving healing.
-
I have been suffering neck, shoulder, back pain for years and thankfully I’ve met wonderful physiotherapists @shummers01 and Silvia who found my spine was off the side and taught me the right postures and how to gain strength physically.
-
LED Red Light Therapy along with the right topical regimen, they ease muscle pain, keep rosacea at bay and reduce potential winter depression, it’s super beneficial to physical issues.
-
Meditation, listen to my body and understanding my true self help me live in present moment, absolutely feed my soul (so I don‘t roarrrrr as easily 😉😬) 💛💛💛 #gratitude

I’m not a fan of the word”networking “, I believe in people connecting people.
-
Meeting a new friend (especially in new city) who clicks is something to be grateful for.
-
Thanks to this beautiful lady suggested to meet up, it was one of the best moments. I surely enjoyed our talk, especially when it comes to spiritual topics.
-
Thanks for the positive vibe 💛
-
Good times and good food!

Have you ever been in similar situation?
-
We took our kids to #lego workshop, few bigger kids kept staring at our 5yr old because... he was the youngest. -
Once the class started and no surprise that our 5yr old was in his own zone, the kid next to our boy kept pointing at him for not paying attention to the instructor, but due to our boy was very much in the zone and ended up putting pieces together along with the instructions in no time because he laser focused and believed in his own ability.
- 
Husband was proud, the daughter was stressed (by-the-rule anxiety kicked in), the instructor was shocked, the kids surrounded the table weren’t quite happy, and most of the parents stared at him.
-
We reminded the boy was doing great but he needed to understand he was in a space where people worked together.  I admit that he needed to understand how other people feel, what was going on surround him.
-
Having laser focus and believing  in yourself are vital, learn to work as team or partnership is important,  be reminded to take a step back helps sometimes.
Pointing fingers end up not gaining anything.
-
Does it sound like your work place?

A stressful week has gone and here comes an unknown, challenging bright future. 
Gave myself some challenge today, I’m not a professional yoggie so I don’t have nice poses to show, instead, I’m just sharing my progress on my own journey.
Meh 😁

It’s been a looooong time, cant even remember the last time we got to be out of the house without kids as we both have been busy AF, slowly found this wasn’t the way to go and finally decided to take a lunch date together.
Although we chatted about work, life, science, philosophy, family, anything as usual (but without anyone disturbed us), I’m grateful having a partner who let me be me, who I still have a lot convos in depth with after being together for 10years. 
It was a great short 59min-lunch date💛 I so look forward to our laser tag date ⚡️
(I know you can’t keep your eyes off my awesome Timberland 👢😎)

Sunday Morning : 
Get up in the butt crack of dawn as usual, have a longer "me time" in the quietness while the family still sleeping in. -
As a busy mom, wife, sister, business owner, friend and blah (gotta take kids to bday party), I don't think there's a reason for me to stop, those actually are the good reasons  to keep learning, growing, self-loving.
-
Investing my time for a short meditation, absorbing the information to feed my brain and soul are absolutely vital, this brain tonic not only helps own personal growth, it also helps to serve the ones who surround me. -
Being #selfish means giving 110% to our own selves, everything is me me me and me.  Giving 100% to the others (especially full time mom to the kids) will only leave us low self esteem and become self-sabotaged.  #selflove means investing at least 10 - 20%  to ourselves, keep our emotions, thoughts, knowledge, health in well balanced, in order to inspire and serve the others. (I've learned that from a hard way, trust me)
-
We all have exactly the same 24 hours.  It really depends on how you use your 24 hours.
-
Today's read :
I recently found this book that I got in my early 20s, it was a concept nice to have at that time.
Now as in my 30s, I'd say my perspective has changed to "Not about how good you want to be, it's about how to amplify how good you already are"

My girl looked emo (wow sounds so 2000s) and stayed silent coming home from school. We made sure she was comfortable enough to talk about how her teacher misunderstood her in class, and we helped her release the burden in her heart.
-
As we were kids once, we can easily say no one will remember it and this will become a minor dot in life.
-
However, if we don't listen to our kids as parents, this minor dot will become their childhood trauma lead to being self-sabotaged. 
It's VERY IMPORTANT to put ourselves into their shoes, listen to their voices and their hearts, try to understand the situation rationally.
-
If you want them listen to you,
You should listen to them just as much.

Monday, back to crafting content, emailing, following up the work in Two different cities and timezones.
-
It’s  never easy to reach goal even if you follow your passion.  It takes time, faith, and efforts to reach the pinnacle. You gotta do what you don’t want in order to do what you want
-
Find a way to make yourself feel good and related to what you do, be in the moment.
-
I love filling whatever drink (no alcohol needed) in my champagne flute and listen to my playlist while working, feel so luxurious.
-
What’s your Monday Motivation?

My girl has anxiety and anxious about the next step.  She got homesick and @nasdaily happened to be in Montreal at the right time.
-
His work has inspired different nations and I’m grateful my girl was able to experience and be in the wonderful tribe today.
-
It’s ok to step into the unknown and make the unfamiliar familiar.
(She cant wait to see herself in the vid)

Connect The Dots
-
We all have dreams and goals. Things seem to happen randomly (and unexpectedly) in our lives.  They could be good, bad, BS or unreal, however, it all makes sense when looking back and connect the dots.
-
If we get to our goals with straight lines, it’d be no fun.  Those random things lead us to where we are today. -
Be thankful you got a full bag of experiences and your own life stories.

We have a soft launch in Canada lately and due to the multi-currency issues during checkout, we keep getting msg from customers, 
I appreciate the opportunity for us to learn the lesson and fix the bug.  I was afraid we might lose the customers in North America, however, able to address / admit our own imperfections not only help us improve ourselves, we’re also able to continue making sales to new customers because of our understanding to customers’ perspective, give fast response and show honesty (what customer service should be)
-
From my former co-founder walked off the company, I started NOIRSTONE from scratch and it was a lonely journey. I’m grateful all the vendors, business partners, new co-founder, customers have been so understanding and patient with me and NOIRSTONE.
-
We’ve gone through a busy year (plus my personal relocation), a lot happened, tons of obstacles, gains&loss, some worked within exceptions but some didn’t, and now we’re happy to see this baby start growing and glowing.
-
We’re currently working on our plan for 2019, Definitely look forward to making things happen and the way it should be going.
So exciting!
