Flexing my biggest muscles


My heart and my mind.

When I think about it now, I realize I was long overdue for something like what happened over the weekend: Upon the persistence of friends, I finally said yes to a leadership seminar (FLEX), and it was like my mind took a long, long vacation and came back not just refreshed, but enlightened.

Which is not to say the way I live my life has already changed. I'm still in the process of recognizing and solving a host of issues. But my level of awareness has been lifted, and I now recognize the struggle that frustrates me so--where it stems from, why I'm frustrated, and why I have it in me to solve them.

No more pity parties. No more self-deprecation. No more whining. No more excuses. No more hatred. Less and less anger. Less and less self-doubt. Less and less negativity. More action. More daring. love.

And no more rolling of eyes when people say happy-happy-joy-joy stuff.

I think the things I picked up from the FLEX seminar can be found in one of my favorite animated movies, "Happy Feet."



P.S.

I want to join a Toastmasters Club. I found two in Alabang, but was only able to email one (thankfully, the one whose meeting schedules I prefer) because the email I sent to the second one bounced. Do any of you know any other clubs near Las PiƱas City?
