204: Not Curious Enough, Apparently.

For the past few days I've been thinking a lot about my blog, among other things. For one, I'm thinking that I have chosen a-not-so-apt title link for my blog as it hasn't been curious enough. I've thought of revamping this once again, just to align my entries to my title and link. Then, I'd self-deprecate and think that it's a waste to revamp since I've already built my 'Curious Weekend' title. Plus, I love my link: Curious Weekend. 

Hmmm ... on the other hand, maybe I'll just add more curiousities on my entries. lol!

203: A Letter for Nobody

Hi Friend, 

Summer had been amazing, which is the reason why I had been away for quite some time. If you are wondering what I was up to for the past few weeks I was quite up to a lot of things. But most of it concerns about me learning a new skill such as learning how to do freestyle properly (swimming), doing high intensity training, a lot of 'good for the mind' programs, and basically just having fun under the sun. The 'good for the mind' program by the way is about mind programming, it's about disciplining my mental activities. Quite huge, eh? Anyway, I do not want to get into detail but rest assured I'm not going mental. ;p

You know, since life had been good to me in general I could not help but be excited about the future. I feel excited about it because I know something good will happen. I've always wished that I can do something - anything - of significant in this world, and not just spectate, and I have this intense feeling that it will happen in the future. It may sound crazy, but ... I just feel like things will fall on its place and it will be incredible. I'm excited because one day sooner I'll cease being audience and take the stage and play my part. 

I may come naïve but shoo you nay sayers because I believe on my fate. I believe on persistence, and of law of attraction so ... I'll be great, I'll do great things. And on the end of my journey, I'll do what Emma Watson's character did in the Perks of Being a Wallflower: stand in the back of the truck and spread my arms, feel the wind against my face, and just feel infinite. I'm excited.

But you know, I just don't wish this for myself. I wish all the greatness for you too. Greatness comes in different forms and it's up to you to define it, and solidly believe that it will come to you too. So be thrilled, and be amazing because our life and future is. :)

Love lots,

201: Find Your Greatness

You have to see this commercial from Nike if you have not seen it yet. I love Nike because of their advocacy. I'm not endorsing Nike but I love that they stick to their product's value to humanity. Anyway, so much for advertising. But seriously please watch this video because the message in this video is inspiring.

 Greatness it’s just something we made up. Somehow we come to believe that greatness is a gift reserved for a chosen few for prodigies, for superstars, and the rest of us can only stand by watching. You can forget that. Greatness is not some rare DNA strand. It’s not some precious thing. Greatness is no more unique to us than breathing. We are all capable of it, all of us. 


I believe that we capable to do something great, but we just drift away from our supposed greatness because of reasons. We drift away from it because (one of the reasons) we do not do things that we actually like, that we know we'll pour our hearts into, spend some great time to hone our skills at. There could be thousand of reasons but this is what I have mentioned because this is the path that I have taken. And I can only tell my experience.

But I always believe that it's not too late, that people who made a history was also a once a dreamer that nobody knew existed. But the difference is that they drove themselves to find their passion and their 'greatness', don't you think that maybe we could also do the same thing? That greatness is not for selected rockstars, prodigy, etc., but for anyone who's persistent enough (to want) to find it?

It's not too late. We can also do the same.
