Respond, Not React

If there is anything in life, or as I like to call “the external world”, that we can control, it’s our response. You can be deprived and stripped of everything in life but the choice on how to respond to them, will always be yours.

One day, maybe a couple of weeks ago, I went to grab a cup of coffee at one of the many Starbucks locations in Irvine. All I wanted to do was enjoy my coffee and read some blogs on my MacBook. The only table available was near the ordering/cash register area. There wasn’t much room but that was ok, it was the only table available and so I sat there anyways. Not even 10 minutes being there and a flood of high school kids come walking in.

Storytime: How I Got Into Collecting Stones and Crystals and Do They Actually Work?

For most of my life, I didn’t pay much attention to anything spiritual or religious. I considered myself to be agnostic for most of my life because I didn’t really know what to believe in and I didn’t want to close myself off to anything. I simply stayed neutral. That was until I purchased my first stone and crystal.

And in much appreciation, I just want to thank the people who recognized me by either reblogging my blog posts, giving me a shout out in their own blogs, or nominating me for either the Versatile or Sunshine Blogger Award.

The Toothpaste Perspective

There are many important things in life that we overlook, especially perspectives. So I came up with a weird “Jen” way to explain how I feel most people perceive life by simply using toothpaste as an example.

Have you ever experienced depression, anger, guilt, shame etc. because you found out that you are about to run out of toothpaste? Or do you get anxiety before going to bed and have sleepless nights because you are about to run out of toothpaste? Probably not. Why? Because there’s no reason to worry about it, right? If you’re about to run out of toothpaste, you just know life is going to be ok and the world isn’t going to end, even though toothpaste serves a huge purpose in your life.
