A productive and happy life is not something you find; it is something you MAKE! ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

In my attempt to have a quiet days-off, I switched-off my cellphone this weekend. I wanted to have a totally no disturbance sign on my forehead, so I could focus on what I want to do. Although, I was tempted many times to switch it on and peep on my messages and missed calls, I am proud to have overcome Dr. Evil. Work as follows:


1. Did a lot of thinking, walked and enjoyed a bit of sunshine (alone).

2. Back home to de-clutter and re-structure my bedroom; turned it into a cozy sanctuary; reposition bed and other furniture, including photo frames and paintings on the wall to get the ying and the yang.

3. Cooked chicken macaroni soup; cleaned the house and myself (showered til the hot water run-out).

4. Read The Vision Board (Secret to an extraordinary life) by Joyce Schwarz and worked on my vision board (still incomplete).

5. Hoped that “YOU” would speak to me. You promised you would explain. You said, we will talk but we didn’t. How frustrating! I am imploding!

I wanted to do twice as much in half time since Raptors is playing at noon. I’m a fan and never want to miss a game or two. It’s okay, I told myself, relax, there’s no rush…there's time.


1. While doing the laundry- listened to Kanye West's "Heartless" (replayed hundred times); Lyric goes: “You‘re bringin’ out a side of me that I don’t know, I decided we wasn’t goin’ speak so…in the night I hear ‘em talk, the coldest story ever told, somewhere far along this road, he lost his soul”….I don't really like Kanye West but I like some of his music. checked email (trouble accessing yahoo, recovery in 24 hours according to help desk), checked FaceBook instead. Nothing much new, guess everyone is trying to enjoy their Sunday in a more productive and active way...and I’m doing my laundry?

2. Sorted out files of papers piling on my desk. Issued cheques for bills that were forgotten (intentionally) and prayed that the cheques won't bounce like the Raptor's Basketball.

3. Prepared Tax documentations; get back up ready for filing (Part 1).

4. Finalized goal - its' never late!

5. Hoped once again that “YOU” would speak to me. I wonder? Is it embarrassment or total cowardness? Ignore me? Negligence- do I wear my negligee’ then? Could it be more like a duty instead, if it didn’t feel like it anymore?

      I'm honored by your visit Ms Schwarz. Just so you know, I've shared your book with my sisterhood and it's been bouncing back and forth. I will certainly check your blog and follow you on FB too. I've since finished my VB, which is now in the list of "To Hub about". Thank you for writing such a very helpful and motivational book. -Happy owner of The VISION BOARD

      Is there no .pdf of The Vision Board online? I am now intrigued! I had a nice time reading your hub, Cris. Maybe Ms. Schwarz VB book should bounce to me too. Will you lend it to me one day?
