very-inspiring-blogger-award

I am beyond blessed and honorable to be nominated by two of my lovelies Mamamaitri and garfieldhug for this meaningful award. ❤ I couldn’t thank you enough for such a nomination. Please drop them some love to visit their amazing blogs. They not only have an amazing blog, but they also have a wonderful personality.

The rules of this award:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you and add a link to their blog.
  2. Display the award on your post.
  3. List the award rules so your nominees will know what to do.
  4. State 7 things about yourself.
  5. Nominate 15 other bloggers for the award.
  6. Contact your nominees to let them know you have nominated them. Provide a link to your post.
  7. Proudly display the award logo (or buttons) on your blog, whether on your side bar, ABOUT page, or a special page for awards.

7 things about me:

1. I’m always shy. I might not look like a shy person here on WP, but in person definitely. Remember back when I was a 4-year-old kid who hid under the table for a few hours because I was too shy to say hello to one of my uncles who came to visit my family. Even when I was studying at University, I was usually the one who sat at the back or sat in the corner. But now I’m trying my best not to be too shy by talking to people more. 😉

2. Banana is one of my favourite fruits. It is a staple for my breakfast (Oatmeal with sliced banana) nom nom 😛

3. Somehow I always get spontaneous ideas for whatever I do. Remember back when I got a lot of spontaneous ideas for doing my assignments and answering my exam papers in the past. 😛

4. I always aim to do yoga 5 times a week. 🙂 If I don’t have that much time to commit, I will try to do it at least once a week. Otherwise, my body is like aching or something. I just don’t feel good about it.

5. Blue is my favourite colour. I don’t care what shade of blue it is, I love it all basically unless it looks very unpleasant to me. 🙂

6. I’m 100% Chinese, but for some reason quite a lot of people around me think I look like Thai, Filipino, Singaporean or having mixed ethnicity. I got asked a lot about my ethnicity when travelling to Thailand.  Some of them even spoke Thai to me before they asked my ethnicity during my recent trip to Thailand. 😀

7. I hate to sit on the plane. I just can’t sleep or sit patiently on the plane. I have to walk around 😛 😛 😛

Although the rule of this award is to nominate 15 other bloggers for the award, quite a lot of bloggers are having award-free blogs/ busy doing their own personal things and there are more than 15 bloggers deserve to have this award. As a result, I’m going to break the rule not to name anyone. Please feel free to get this award from my blog and post it on your blog. 🙂

I love you all my inspiring bloggers ❤

The Power of “Yes I can!”

207 faburlifekhloe

People who have never done yoga in their lives or even yoga beginners often find yoga challenging and intimidating. Their first reaction to advanced yoga postures usually are “not a chance”, “there is no way I can do this”, “never going to happen”, “I wish I could do this”, etc. The list of believing how impossible it is to do it can go endless.

Believe it or not, I’ve also gone through the same phrase when I first started doing yoga. I was scared of falling. I was scared of injuring myself. I was basically scared of trying any of the advanced yoga postures. I was stuck at doing the same basic yoga postures for a year and a half. I couldn’t get myself proceeded to the next level. I started to question myself trying to figure out where the problem was. Keep thinking whether I wasn’t strong enough to handle the advanced postures or I wasn’t flexible enough to do the postures. The problem was I didn’t believe in myself. There were always some negative pre-assumptions running on my mind. What if I couldn’t do it? What if I injured myself badly? What if …?

As soon as I started to tell myself “Yes I can!” before attempting to do the advanced postures, I got it done usually in 1 to 2 weeks. It wasn’t a story telling me how flexible I am (In fact, I was born with a moderate flexibility only). It wasn’t a story telling me how great I am at doing yoga. It wasn’t a story telling me how crazy my body can be. It was actually a story showing me the power of “Yes I can!” and how our mindset can change the way we react.  Obstacles in life are often as challenging and intimidating as the advanced yoga postures. We can either choose to stay in a comfort zone by believing how impossible to conquer the obstacles or to believe in ourselves by saying “Yes I can!” to let go of our fears and start facing. We always have a choice to choose, but the result will end dramatically different.

Stay strong and positive,
