Be of Service for a Greater Cause



The world is bigger than us and the responsibility to make an impact to the life of others is way deeper than any moral principles. It’s been my ultimate dream to make a difference in the life of others but the desire and the realization is way more complex than words could ever describe.

However, my dream is going to be realized soon. For a month, I have been working on my online store. Initially, it was just the thought of doing something while I am working on building my website and page followers. Then, I realized that I could use it for something bigger.

So, today I decided that for every product purchase in my store, I will donate a Smile Kit for one child in an impoverished place in the Philippines. The Smile Kit will contain basic necessities such as toothbrush, toothpaste, and school supplies. They are simple things that we often take for granted in life but will have a significant impact on the life of others.

If you want to be a part of this simple project, please help me by visiting my online store, English and Art Solutions. Ten percent of every sale goes to a child in need.

Organize and Declutter (Day 6 of Thirty-Day Challenge for a More Meaningful Life)



Day 6. Organize and Declutter. Let go of something in your closet.
I read somewhere that attachment to material things create a void inside you. Letting go of a thing or two from your closet is the start of escaping the prison of materialism.
 
Good order is the foundation of all things. –Edmund Burke-
A visit to my walk-in closet and dressers made me realized that I have tons of clothes that I don’t wear anymore at all. As I organized, I made a decision of which clothes to let go. After hours of folding and arranging, twelve drawers, two ottoman storage, and a walk-in closet are more orderly. Simple action that made me feel more productive and efficient.

Start your Day with a Prayer (Day 5 of Thirty-Day Challenge for a More Meaningful Life)


The power of prayer is undeniable.
In the busy world we live in, a meaningful life is as elusive as ever. Imagining a life which has vitality, substance and contentment is getting harder because of the overwhelming materialism that surround us. Sometimes, a gentle reminder to start your day with a prayer is all that you need to start a meaningful day.
 
I lost count of the times God made a difference in our life because of prayers.
Day 5. Start your Day with a Prayer
When I was teaching in Indonesia, I used to start my day reading a Bible with my husband who was here in the United States. Prayer continuously plays a vital role in our relationship but life could be overwhelming sometimes that we only get to do it before going to sleep or before eating dinner.

A prayer before starting that day is a humble way of asking God to show me which way He wants me to go. It is also a beautiful reminder that I am as fallible as ever and only God can complete me.  If and when I fall on this day, I know that the prayer I uttered for the day is enough to strengthen my resolve to stand and live the day as a child of God.

“Our prayers may be awkward. Our attempts may be feeble. But since the power of prayers is in the one who hears it and not in the one who says it, our prayers do make a difference.”
