Random Thoughts: Sundays Like This

Can you spot the blank space in this photo?  I wish we all knew how okay it is that part of each of us, is a blank space.  That the world is filled with questions.  That there is a force out there greater than us.  That we don’t know everything.  That we never will, and it’s okay.

This David Rubenstein Show Is Habit Forming

What makes a great leader? How can leadership be developed into a force for true achievement? The David Rubenstein Show: Peer-to-Peer Conversations explores successful leadership through the personal and professional choices of the most influential people in business.

Renowned financier and philanthropist David Rubenstein travels the country talking to leaders to uncover their stories and their path to success. Each episode features an interview with one business leader.

From Bill Gates to Ken Chenault, from Indra Nooyi to Warren Buffett, from Eric Schmidt to Lloyd Blankfein, David goes in search of the fundamental insights that reveal what makes a truly great leader.


Mondays like this turns my brain juice into corporate thinker.  Like my brain literally turns!  The past weekend was a little friendly to me.  I spent some “ME TIME”.

  • Painted
  • Clicked photos of a black cat
  • Had bottles of beer
  • Abused Netflix (Watched The Crown – The story of Queen Elizabeth)
  • Lazied a lot (Just belly popped and slept a lot!)
  • Enjoyed the afternoon drizzle
  • Played with my dog (Bullet the pug)

So now…it’s Monday!  It’s a drill for me to read my Flipbaord and watch the news while I am having coffee in the morning before going to work.  You know, you wouldn’t want to be left out during morning corporate conversations with your peers, right?  Anyways, as I was playing with the TV Channels  earlier, hovering from CNN to ANC, I clicked the Bloomberg Channel and came across  David Rubenstein Show.  Indeed, very interesting!

And as a treat for you my dear followers, I am sharing with you the episode where he interviewed one of my favorite leaders, Warren Buffet.  Talking about inspirational people?  Count me in!  I guess David will always be a part of my morning drill!

Just a teaser, we both didn’t  want to go to college! 😀

Happy Monday morning everyone, or happy Sunday to whichever part of the earth you are right now!

This Black Cat

Just want share with my followers some photos, which I have taken early this morning shortly when I woke up and was on my way to buy bread and beer for breakfast.

I saw this black cat on the street and thought she (okay, I assumed she’s a she) came a little late for the Halloween.  It’s a funny Sunday morning indeed as we enjoyed some moments of photo shoot, which ended as one of the featured photos of VSCO.  As most of the street cats would run when you come close to them, believe me she is picture ready.  She just threw her emotions.  Can you see?  (By now, you understand why I assumed why she’s a she!) 😛

The next thing I did, called the animal rescue team in Manila.

Don’t save it all on Christmas Day.  Find your way to bring a little love everyday.

Help save street animals, they deserve a family too!

My Sunrise⛅️

1

Earlier this evening, I cried on my home.

In a middle of a very busy and crazy schedule, my Sunrise squeezed some time, and sat beside me in serenity after he pulled off from work. It’s always a wonderful feeling for me every time I spend moments with special people, and just let time go by.  We sat on the gutter beside the flower box of the church’s garden.  Over time, I’ve learned not to underestimate a peaceful togetherness-the gift of quiet knowing, of being in the moment, moments of silence in between, shoulder-to-shoulder.  It’s beautiful.

Surprisingly, he asked me a verse from the bible, which he saw inside the garden.  My heart melted.  He was like a 7-year old kid, curious, with his eyes beaming with innocence.  Time passed as we talked about God.  The difference in our beliefs and religion,  (He is Hindu, I am Christian.) while understanding that no matter how different we are, we will always bonded by our faith, and nothing can change that.

Before Sunrise, I’d not only been called things I won’t repeat here, I’d not only been hit in the face (literally), kicked in other places (literally), punched in the heart (not literally, but ouch nonetheless), I’d been taught to believe that I needed to lighten up.  Well let’s just say it took me a while, but I did one better: instead of lightening up, I saw the light, and the light is  good man.

Tonight, I did not just see the stars✨, my Sunrise painted the rainbow 🌈 in the evening sky, with him not even knowing it.

Nothing beats breakfast in bed with the one I love beside me – my job (while watching Donald Trump running his last Presidential Campaign in Florida).  This guy cracks me up – seriously.😝

Bdw, not white bed sheets.  It’s not breakfast in bed.  It’s breakfast on couch while dreaming of my bed.  Good morning beautiful earthlings!

 

Diwali 2016

Of all mutitudes of deities and gods that constitute the Hindu religion, lord Ganesh is probably the most loved and revered of all, regardless of individual beliefs and customs.  Considered the god of good beginnings and wisdom.  I have learned that it is in his name that new ventures were undertaken and important life decisions were made.  Today, I pay homage to all my Indian friends who became second family to me (you know who you all are) who are kind enough to welcome, and share with me a part of your beautiful tradition that through the years of celebrating the Diwali Festival with you, has become part of me.  My spirit is in so much solidarity tonight. Much love to you all!
