    Being The Best Of Me || Focus On What I Want

    Everybody knows we need to focus on what we want. But the reality is we often focus on what we DON’T want. Last week, I was invited to an event in a nearby city in Michigan. The night before my trip when I chatted with a friend, I said something like this ” Let’s see how long it will take me to get there since I always get lost.” My friend pointed out to me “Be positive!” I suddenly realized that my energy focused on what exactly I don’t want!! Why am I doing this?! It kept me thinking. Later on, I think I found my answer. The fears of…

    Being The Best Of Me || Taking 100% Responsibility For My Life

    This past April I started my soul searching journey. It all started me wanting some answers about why I lost my husband and what happens after a person passes away? I have been listening to spiritual and motivational Youtube videos every morning since then, and that is how I got familiar with Jack Canfield’s work. I took his ten-day challenge online course and loved it so much, so I signed up for one day workshop in Denver. During this workshop last month, I also signed up for a one year program with him called Train the Trainer. I am so excited to learn more from him and give a more…

    Being the Best of Me || Finding the Truth of Loneliness

    A few nights ago, I was on my way home from an event. I followed my car’s GPS, but it was not updated so It didn’t know anything about the freeway closure. I ended up in Detroit, somewhere in the dark of night. It made me a little nervous to stop at a gas station and fire up my Google Maps app on my phone. Finally, I was on the right freeway. It was quite late, and I was very tired. Suddenly, I heard some huge engine roaring right behind me. Before I reacted, I saw the car near me almost tip over. It was trying to avoid getting hit…

    Being the Best of Me || Set Peace Treaty with My Childhood Abuse

    Everybody is damaged on a different level, and everybody has holes in their heart. Most of the damage or pain is from our parents when we were little, intentionally, or non-intentionally. The results are the same: we’re often feeling insecure, or not feeling good enough. As long as I have had memories, I remember my mom being the one who made me suffer the most. Now when I look back, all the physical punishments were not that powerful. I do remember I was very scared of her. But her words, or the attitude of disliking me, hold a longer impact on me. She and her siblings would often laugh at…

    Being the Best of Me || Beautiful Inside and Out

    I have never felt truly beautiful until this year. When my inner beauty and outer beauty finally matched. Every time when I say I am not that beautiful, it is quite interesting to see the look on people’s faces. They are kind of like, “Are you kidding?” No, I am not kidding or trying too hard to come off humble. My family was super poor, and my mom never wanted me. All my clothes were hand-me-downs from my older brother. I had pretty much zero knowledge about how to look good when I was young. My mom had very limited style advice. So, I was never exposed to fashion or beauty…

    Being the Best of Me || Seeing the Brutal Truth of Myself

    I have struggled my entire life to believe that I am enough. To believe I am good enough, smart enough, brave enough or beautiful enough. Childhood damage is far stronger than I could imagine. I thought this past year I had made huge progress on self-empowerment and making peace with the past. I didn’t know that there are still so many emotions of mine. If you have followed me for a while, you already know that I am trying to become a public speaker. So I can share my stories with more people, and encourage others to give their dream a chance. I have worked on my presentation for a…
