101 Questions… Book Launch Challenge #3

View this post on Instagram

Challenge #3 =) Oooh love this one! Brings back memories of high school and my early 20’s, the years of self discovery and finding self confidence πŸ˜‰ And coming out of the 5 years of learning and growing, the nuggets (yes nuggets cause I’m feeling peckish right now) of wisdom I learnt are: The moment you stop worrying what other people think about you and let go of your inhibitions… You realise: πŸ˜‰ That everyone else is figuring life as well. πŸ˜‰ That people’s naysayers opinion of you really shouldn’t matter. In fact that became my sign that I was on the right track when people were telling me that I was crazy and reckless for even considering it πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ That no one can make you feel inferior or judged without your consent =) damn straight! And what that looks like? πŸ˜‰ You take more chances fearlessly and leap with faith into the unknown. πŸ˜‰ If the thought, I don’t think I can comes up, it means I definitely should do it πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ Comfort zone living no longer seems enticing, life of edge looks way more fun πŸ˜‰ cause God is more concerned about our character growth than our comfort πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ You learn to love yourself not only for your strengths but your flaws and somehow make them into your greatest strengths. The end of my 5 years of self discovery has led me to become the every brave, witty, relentless, perseverant, courageous, funny, fearless, confident and kind person that I always wanted to be πŸ˜‰ with God’s grace & love. πŸ™ƒπŸŒˆπŸ˜‰πŸ˜Žβ€οΈ Trust me, if you nail self confidence and vanquish self doubt early on – you’ve already accomplished what people spend most of their lives trying to πŸ˜‰ Go forth and be awesome! πŸ™ƒ P.S: My go to self confidence & love songs are Who Says by Selena Gomez & I’m Me by Us the Duo πŸ™ƒπŸ˜‰ Perfect songs to start any day =)

Faith in the woods podcast coming!

Hey JJ readers!

Just swinging by to say hi & updating you what’s happening for JJ this year πŸ˜‰

❀ Podcasts: I’ve decided and realised I should be more realistic rather than super ambitious – a podcast a month on JJ radio πŸ˜‰ Given it’s time consuming to write, record and edit πŸ˜‰ Who knows? Maybe one day there’ll be a JJ radio!

❀ Book reviews: will come as I read those awesome books from What’s in JJ’s bookshelf!

❀ Guest posts: would ❀ to collaborate with you awesome writers/bloggers!

Stayed tuned for the 1st JJ podcast of 2018! πŸ˜‰ Faith in the woods, inspired by my late night adventure in December =)

Before the technology revolution took off 7 years ago, reading an actual book from a library or a bookstore was the norm. And being an avid reader/bookworm, there was nothing I liked more than escaping to my reading sanctuary.

For others.
For future generations.

To sink or swim?

James 1:12

I think we’ve all had times in our lives where we ask, Why God? When life in general just doesn’t go the way we’ve planned. Like when relationships fall through, career pathways seems so out of reach or even friendships fallouts- it does seem logical. But what I realised is that life is actually 5% what happens but 95% how we choose to take it πŸ˜‰
