Project: Reflect 52 #32 - I got promoted!

Yes, I got promoted!

*throws confetti*

This, among others, is my best piece of news of the week.

And thus, I'm sharing with you five really good inspirational quotes from Karen Salmansohn. I've chosen them based on my experience from Monday to Friday of the past week.

Monday - Believe

"Believe in what you want so much that it has no choice but to materialize."

Believe is a very strong element. I'm learning to believe by rejecting my natural self-sabotaging and self-discounting reaction. Instead of saying, "No, I don't think they will agree to meet us," change it to, "Yes, I've arranged an appointment with them."

Tuesday - Choose

"Happy Chooseday! Choose wisely."

I learn to choose forward thoughts and habits such as love, faith, peace. I don't lose anything. I might only lose negative or skeptical friends, hahaha.

Dear friends, if you find that I'm becoming so very "annoying" with such new-found optimism, believe me, I've never felt so alive in a very long time.

Wednesday - Faith

"When your faith is stronger than your fears, you can make your dreams happen."

This is very, very true. Fear of failure is what holds us back from achieving our goals and dreams. And thus, I don't want to think about failure. I choose to have faith in the fact that I will be successful.

You may ask what do I mean by successful. I would say, success is a very subjective matter. My definition might be different from yours, so let's just pay attention to what you want for yourself. Enough with the comparison and complaints about impossibilities.

Thursday - Focus

"What you focus on creates how you feel and what you get."

Yes, I'm learning to focus on and visualize about success and possibilities. I try not to focus on how impossible a task is.

I will always remember the quote that governs my life, "If it is to be, it is up to me." It is up to me to create how I feel and what I get. No one can do this for me.

Friday - Chase

"Chase what your love! Don't follow your fears!"

Definitely! What's the point of living your entire life in fear, skepticism, cynicism, and constant what-ifs? Why don't open yourself to learn about things that all these while, you think you don't like or don't want? What is there to lose? As long as the opportunities aren't inhumane, unethical or lawless, what is there to fear about?


Not so long ago, I find people who are delusionally optimistic, annoying. Now, I find those (including my previous self) who are constantly skeptical and pessimistic, pathetic. I don't want to live the next decades of my life full of what-ifs and regrets.

A lot of good things have happened to me in the first three quarters of this year. I want to have more blessed days, months, years to come! I know I already have them in store for me. :)


  1. Huge congrats, Joyce! You deserve it :)

    P/S: Look forward to congratulating you again some early next year ;)
