PBIM: Here we come...

Okay, how do I begin...
5 more days to PBIM,
Ermm not enough miles yet,
Lack of preparation and bla bla bla...
Yah some of you may have read the almost similar post written last year...
Hahaha...I guess that would pretty much sum up my kind of preparation when it comes to running the particular Penang Bridge Marathon....

Its daunting...
everytime when I started my weekend run (either with booTak or Tottie), it would be the same
The first 15minutes would be breathing chaos drama,
The next 30minutes would be cramp
and the next 15 minutes would be sakit perut pulak...

I guess I will never be ready for any race
Its always be excuses one after another..
I have to put a stop on it

Im going to PBIM with an open heart,
Im going with the thought to actually try and finish it
with good timing I really hope
Eventhough my one and only motivator will not be joining, (*sigh*)
But I guess life goes on...

So to all my friends, readers or whoever will be going to Penang for the PBIM, hope to see you guys around. To Kak Julin, REALLY HOPE to see you...

Good luck guys.

Well, before we go some good articles for us to read...

This is amazing, he died of pancreatic cancer in 2008, but wrote a book ‘The last lecture” before then, one of the bestsellers in 2007. What a legacy to leave behind …
In a letter to his wife Jai and his children, Dylan, Logan , and Chloe, he wrote this beautiful "guide to a better life" for his wife and children to follow.
May you be blessed by his insight.

1. Don't compare your life to others'. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
2. Don't have negative thoughts of things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment
3. Don't over do; keep your limits
4. Don't take yourself so seriously; no one else does
5. Don't waste your precious energy on gossip
6. Dream more while you are awake
7. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need..
8. Forget issues of the past. Don't remind your partner of his/her mistakes of the past. That will ruin your present happiness.
9. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Don't hate others.
10. Make peace with your past so it won't spoil the present
11. No one is in charge of your happiness except you
12. Realize that life is a school and you are here to learn.
Problems are simply part of the curriculum that appear and fade away like algebra class but the lessons you learn will last a lifetime.
13. Smile and laugh more
14. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

15. Call your family often
16. Each day give something good to others
17. Forgive everyone for everything
18. Spend time with people over the age of 70 & under the age of 6
19. Try to make at least three people smile each day
20. What other people think of you is none of your business
21. Your job will not take care of you when you are sick. Your family and friends will. Stay in touch.

22. Put GOD first in anything and everything that you think, say and do.
23. GOD heals everything
24. Do the right things
25. However good or bad a situation is, it will change
26. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up
27. The best is yet to come
28. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful
29. When you awake alive in the morning, thank GOD for it
30. If you know GOD you will always be happy. So, be happy.

While you practice all of the above, share this knowledge with the people you love, people you school with,
people you play with, people you work with and people you live with.
Not only will it enrich YOUR life, but also that of those around you.

well, think about it guys....
