It Understands Me


My laptop listens.

I spill my thoughts and feelings.

It understands me.

3 Major Practices for Self-Development


As of now, I have 47 practices to keep developing my mind, body, inner peace, relationships, and projects. The top 3 practices for me is adequate sleep, exercise, and gratitude, which helps me to be productive and at peace. With my 3 major practices and my overall 47 practices, I can clearly see the value of life and everything that exists, and overcome challenges that we often blow out of proportion. Here I am at 24 Hour Fitness at Mililani, Hawaii on October 6, 2017 after my 119th exercise for the year. May peace be with you!
