Being single isn’t a disease, It’s an opportunity for you to grow, learn, and experience life in a way that you won’t be able to when you are married.
Here are 5 things to do while you’re single:
1. Be firm in your faith. 
- Build your faith on a foundation that cannot be shaken, no matter whom you encounter. This will not only bring you peace during your season of singleness, but will also help you in your journey of finding the person you plan on being with for the rest of your life.Don’t let your beliefs change depending on whom you’re trying to impress. This tactic will always come around to hurt you in the long run.
2. Get grounded in your personal identity. 
- Know who you are before trying to explain it to someone else. Be confident in your purpose, your body, your identity, and your life choices. Relationships will not fix your identity problems, but they can be an added bonus to who you are as a person.
3. Focus on school, or starting you career. 
- You have a lot of time on your hands. Instead of spending it wallowing in your singleness, GO MAKE SOMETHING OF YOURSELF! You are worth more than what sitting on a couch waiting for your significant other makes you out to be. Step out into the world and take maturity by the horns. Start building your future instead of simply dreaming about it.
4. Learn to be independent until needed otherwise. 
- There is nothing wrong with aspiring to be a stay at home mom, or even being a man who works from home. But until either of these opportunities come into play, you need to make sure you are doing everything possible to provide for yourself, your future family, and your future aspirations. Don’t live day-to-day. Plan for the future, and look forward to the possibilities. You owe it to yourself to mature in all
5. Stop dating people you know aren’t right for you. 
- While you’re single, stay away from mindless dating experiences. If you know they aren’t your type, don’t give them the time of day. All you are going to do is hurt them and eventually confuse your heart. Stop dating the wrong people and start focusing on becoming the right person.

7 Steps To Finally Finish Your Writing Project by Jayme Barrett

I never planned on writing a best-selling book. In fact, I never planned on being a writer. As a feng shui expert, my passion is to help people live happier, healthier, more inspired lives. So, in combination with feng shui consulting and teaching, I figured the best way to help a lot of people is to write a book.
Since I’m constantly asked how I came to write Feng Shui Your Life, I want to share tips that may help jump start your own writing journey. Synchronicity and luck played a big part in getting my book deal, but writing it took hard work. Along the whole way, I implemented good feng shui and the manifestation techniques from my book. If it worked for me, it can work for you too!
1. Identify your passion and recognize you are unique.
You must be passionate about your subject so you’ll have the energy and persistence to keep writing. Let’s face it: Writing isn't easy so you must have the driving force within you to complete your book. Once you're passionate, you’ll notice how many other people and authors are also passionate about the same subject. It’s OK. You Are Unique. No one has had the same life experience as you have. You will share the information in your distinct way. Try to re-frame any negative thoughts.
2. Find inspiration and do your research.
Most subjects have been written about already, so it’s important to read inspiring and uninspiring books on your subject. It’s essential for your book to have a unique angle. Find your niche. In 2001, when I began writing my first book, I looked at what had been written on the subject and decided my book was going to be holistic, approach feng shui as a lifestyle, and be a beautiful interior design book as well. There was nothing like it. Like me, you can make a manifestation board for your book project and look at it every day.
3. Create a ritual, schedule and deadlines.
To get yourself in the writing mood, create a ritual (make tea, light a candle, go to a coffeehouse etc) and do that each time you write. You also must make a writing schedule. If you’re a morning person, begin first thing. If you’re working full-time, write at night or on weekends. Deadlines keep you on your schedule. Whether I have a self-imposed deadline or one from my publisher, I’m more apt to get it done on time.
4. Pray, meditate, and walk.
Before I write, I say a specific prayer, ask for guidance, and invoke divine blessings. I silently ask to be a channel or vehicle for this information to come through me easily. You can also find a meditation that works for you. Meditation helps to clear ‘mind clutter’ to invite a positive flow of creative energy. In between writing sessions, I take walks on the beach. Walking in nature is healing and many times, great ideas come when you’re not at your desk. Bring a voice recorder or small notepad.
5. Write in data dump form.
To minimize writer’s block and the need for what you create to “be perfect,” dump the pertinent information on the page. At this point, your rule is that it should be ‘the worst grammar and writing" you’ve ever composed. Seriously, this technique saved me. I just dumped the data in no particular order and once it was out, I could re-formulate and re-order it. I highly recommend reading Steven Pressfield’s The War of Art for effective ways to deal with creative resistance. Also, make sure you have cleared clutterand created good feng shui in your writing space.
6. Create an outline.
When writing a non-fiction book, a detailed outline is essential. Forget about being “creative” at this moment. Think about: (a) what the reader needs to know and (b) in what order he needs to know it to fully comprehend the subject and put it into practice. Write the outline like you did in school. (1, a, i, etc). It looks like a dry text book at this point but don’t worry, it won’t turn out that way.
7. Infuse your personality into writing your book.
Using your outline, now you can infuse your personality into writing each paragraph. When I’m feng shui consulting, I’m friendly, practical, and uplifting, and that “you can do it” energy came through in my writing style. Write in a way that’s easy for your audience to understand. (You must know your demographic!) Remember to give yourself a treat for every personal milestone you reach.
Bonus Tip: At the end of your meditation each day, envision your book on the shelf at your favorite bookstore.
Sending you blessings for a meaningful writing experience and loads of synchronicity along the way!

10 wife lists qualities

by  on November 1, 2013 in Dating

Just like character is the most important characteristic of a good guy, the woman you’re going to marry should have good character as well.  When you find her, she is more valuable than anything.  Here are 10 qualities of good future wife material:
1.  She shares your beliefs
When it comes to finding your wife, I’ve heard “equally yoked.” It has nothing to do with weightlifting.  Your potential wife should have the same beliefs you have.  Now, you may think you can do some missionary dating, and turn that situation around.  More often than not, you’re going to be disappointed with some bad side effects.  If you don’t have the same core beliefs….good luck.
2.  She makes you a better man
If everyday is hell with her, that should be a red flag.  Your potential wife should elevate you to Yourself 2.0.  You can get a good idea from your friends and family.  Do they say you act differently in a bad way when you are around her?  Not a good sign.  She should bring out the best in you, not bring out heartache and frayed nerves.
3.  She’s trustworthy
In fact, she should inspire trustworthiness within you.  If you don’t trust her, you’re probably making her as bitter as you’re making yourself.  Not worth it.  If you can’t trust her, maybe you’re not ready to date her or maybe you need to work on confidence issues within yourself.  If there’s good reason not to trust her, don’t even go there.
4.  She has ambition
She should have strength in character and carry herself with confidence.   As a man, you should be the leader in the relationship, but that doesn’t mean she’s the consummate follower.  She should have plans too.  In fact, she should be a hard worker just like you.  That doesn’t mean having a job is a requirement.  One of my friends is a stay-at-home wife with three kids, and she works harder than any of my friends with careers.
5.  She’s selfless
She should care about others.  Look at the way she treats her family and her friends.  If she’s not close with her family, and doesn’t have any good friends, that’s not a good sign.  If you start dating her, much less marry her, you will discover why.  Some questions to ask your self:  Does she care about causes?  Does she go out and volunteer?  These are important characteristics to consider.
6.  She’s attractive
In your eyes, she should be a “10.”  When my wife walks in the room, I’m awestruck by her every time.  She’s beautiful from the inside out.  However, I’ve dated “hot” girls who ended up being downright ugly by the time we broke up.  Personality plays into attractiveness big-time.  Just remember, “charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting.”  She should be beautiful down to her soul because that kind of beauty lasts forever.
7.  She’s smart
You’re going to be spending a lot of time with her, so she should be able to hold a good conversation.  She should be wise, smart, and give you good advice.  Her women’s intuition should be strong.  I look to my wife all the time for advice.  She’s collected all sorts of wisdom from her mom.  She remembers everything.  Yes, everything….maybe too much.
8.  She loves you unconditionally
If she’s trying to change you to be another person, it’s time to move on.  Your future wife should love you just as you are, regardless of anything you’ve done in your past.  There will be minor adjustments along the way, but if she nags you about your core characteristics, it won’t get any better in marriage.
9.  She’s responsible
Does she remember appointments and meetings?  Does she flake all of the time?  She should already do a good job of managing her own life.  If she’s got loads of debt and doesn’t work, you’re going to be taking all of that on.  Ultimately, she will have some part in your financial well-being, and guess what?  Finances remain one of the leading causes of divorce.
10.  She gets along with your family and friends
If she doesn’t even try to connect with your family and/or friends, it’s probably time to move on.  She shouldn’t be critical of the people who have been loyal to you throughout your life.  There might be cases where your mom doesn’t like your future wife, and that may require your intervention.  But in general, she should be a good fit with the people in your life. Marriage is a joining of two lives that existed prior to meeting the other person.
When it comes down to it, you know what you can handle.  Love can overwrite many of the qualities above, but having these qualities will certainly make your lives easier once you are married.  No one’s perfect.  Even with this list, both of you are still going to bring some kind of baggage into the relationship.  Make sure premarital counseling is a huge priority once you find her.  My wife and I did a relationship bootcamp in addition to premarital counseling.  One session just doesn’t cut it.  Throw everything but the kitchen sink at the most important decision you will ever make.

In October, nothing much to share. One of my colleague resigned, team building at Beringgis Beach Resort and also the Labuan Industry Dinner, which I took part in singing competition.
