How I Brewed My 2015

Last 2015, I started embracing changes and realizing that everything happens for a reason, may it be for better and bigger things. With this, I began brewing a better, if not best, version of me by capturing memories of my monthly adventures, and documenting them as inspired by the pages of the Giving Journal.

Here are some of my realizations, which I would like to share with you:

Sometimes, just a split second in time can make a huge impact and change the direction of our lives, so we have to discover what’s special about us and nurture it. While we are waiting for our rainbow, we must also be able to enjoy life. Happiness never comes to those who fail to appreciate what they have, while they have it.

The good and bad situations will inevitably come and go, so we must learn to keep moving forward, at the same time, to carry the lessons and learnings that go along with them.

Worrying is like a rocking chair, it it gives us something to do but doesn’t get us anywhere. There is no point to dwell on the things you cannot control. Decide to get better and better each day, optimizing the possibilities that life may give you. By becoming better, you are also lifting others higher.

Treat everyone with politeness, even those who are rude to you. This is not because they aren’t nice but because you are – leaving a little joy whenever you go.

Life may not be the party we hope for, but while we’re at it, we should dance. Life is a miracle we have to embrace. Put yourselves out there and take chances to wonder, wander, and discover.

Lastly, we have to do everything with so much love in our hearts that we would never want to do it in any other way. Always be grateful and ready to give back as we create and brew our best masterpiece, soon.
