day 1192 – fizz see oh

image

getting my maintenance work in for my beat up body so i can continue to beat up my body. i like to be active and i will continue to be for as long as i can. physio did mention he was very pleased with how well i held up for as long as i have been away. it’s also nice to hear from others that they’ve noticed my improvement and acknowledge what i can do; that’s a compliment i’ll gladly take. i’m here because you inspired and challenged me to be, but i’ll never be satisfied with myself because i know i can always be better

day 937 – pistol unlocked

image

quads were feeling so jelly i could’ve sworn i wouldn’t be able to do any physio exercises this morning. kin being his own self, urged me to get things done. he, who introduced pistols in my life, has been egging me on to get it down for the past year. my dominant side got it within the first month but severe imbalances made my weak side impossible. kin demanded it again today and i hastily tried, not expecting to come close just like my past nine hundred failed attempts. lo and behold, i went all the way down and all the way up and before i knew it, i had just completed my first ever pistol squat on what i call my broken left. this is a significant milestone because it’s something i’ve been working towards for so long. it’s truly a testament to prove that hardwork, belief and determination really does pay off. thank you for pushing me and never settling for less

day 744 – bedtime reading

image

reading books isn’t something i do often, but if it helps me find myself, then this is a change i must make. picked up this book the other day because the title written in big black bold letters was so intriguing it caught my attention. and inside, this statement really got me intrigued. prior to sleeping tonight, i sat on my bed flipping through this inspirational book and hoping this will inspire me and put me back in the groove

day 722 – kiddie style

image

aside from burnaby public library, i don’t think i have ever seen toilets specifically sized for kids. i have outgrown those days of my dad driving me to burnaby library on the weekends. i am growing up inevitably and must work to pave the present and future days. a little inspiration on hump day doesn’t hurt; helps get me through the day and onwards with the rest of the week

resolution series: [nine] honesty

image

being true to yourself means not cheating yourself because in the end you will realize you are only cheating yourself. there are no shortcuts in life because if it’s something worth achieving in life, it’s worth working for. the truth is often not easy to accept and sometimes it hurts deep down, but hurting is a good thing because it shows that it matters to you. i have fallen in that trap far too many times in the past and only recently have i realized how much wake up calls mean to me. i want to get better in this aspect because it is the only way to have continuous self improvements to be the best i can be. i find it far too easy for me to fall off track, but i am glad there’s people around me who stays honest with me and gives me the hard truth when i least expect it. i would be the first person to admit i am very stubborn and when i have a certain negative thought, it doesn’t wash away easily. i tend to let little slippages that slide away drag me down with it. it’s hard being a perfectionist because i have certain standards for myself and tend to put more stress and pressure on myself than need be. i will dwell on the mistakes and let them haunt me even if it is something very minor, but i suppose that’s not entirely a bad thing. if it is something that matters to me, i will not let that slip and only go out there to prove them wrong

鄭俊弘 – 無名氏

here’s some hamber pride to finish off the night. he’s a hamber graduate doing well in hong kong, from a nobody to a somebody making it atop the popularity canto pop hit list. like his song title says, he’s an inspiration to prove that you can do whatever you want as long as you put your mind to it. the world is so big, don’t be a nobody

transitioning

imagewith so much happening in the next four months, getting it back to normal starting april will be crucial to everything upcoming in may, june and july. another wake up call is needed on this day because i have fallen off the tracks and been procrastinating far too often. it was as simple as stating the obvious and getting right to the point because i am stupid so going around the matter doesn’t really get the point across. upon hearing what was said, the analogy that i have been slapped in the face, punched in the gut and stabbed in the heart sounds about right; which could only mean everything said was spot on. the fact that it hurt and affected me could only mean good things because it means i care and now understand the effort i put forth is unacceptable. i am glad someone found an effective way to provoke me and light the fire i have from within. i cannot lose sight of my destination or forget about how far i want to go but all this cannot be achieved if i don’t start today and stick with it everyday after that. today is the day to start because just thinking about it does absolutely nothing and result in no progression. at least now i have awoken and will make the necessary changes to do what is right
