When the thunderstorms in life come to threaten your days, look forward to experiencing rain. Just like literal rain, rainy life days offer renewal, growth and can give new life. Rainy life days are part of life. Anticipate them and accept them for what they are. They are transient and after them comes the 🌞 sun.
We are on different paths, we started at different times and under different circumstances. Some have started way ahead of you and have accumulated enough to be comfortable in their lives. Do not be weary. Imagine them when they were where you are right now, at the beginning, and beginning from square 1. You'll never know but they could have been in worse situations. Do not ever compare yourself with others. Work hard to succeed because you want to succeed and you want to see yourself succeed, not for anything else. With patience and perseverance you will get there... You will also get there... Bottomline is, our lives are all different, we are all different. #life#journey#thoughtoftheday#immigrant#filipinocanadian

BALANCE. Part of a mindful lifestyle is mindful eating. Whole natural foods packed with nutrients, fiber and all the good stuff. Another part is taking the time to eat. Savour the flavours! It takes 20 minutes for the brain to register you are full so don’t rush through your meal to avoid over-eating. Take time to properly enjoy your meal. Bon appétit!
