#thursday3 [18.01.2018]

I can't believe that it's already the third week of January 2018. I have been busy setting goals and making plans for the rest of the year. I am so bless to live during this period of time. Having information at your finger tips can be a blessing in disguise. Most of the things that I wanted and needed to do can be done online. How cool is that!

HERE ARE  MY SELFIE AND THREE FACTS ABOUT ME THIS WEEK

#thursday3 (18.01.2018)

#thursday3

1. I have set 20 books to read in 2018 challenge on Goodreads.com. I am determine to consume knowledge and stories this year. Amazingly I have read five books so far and I am so excited with the statistic. 

2. I am suddenly obsess with e-learning course. I have bought about three courses on Udemy during year end sale and now I am trying Skillshare for three months. I am hoping to make the time to allocate for learning. Consuming knowledge has become my addiction at the moment.

3. I am also obsess with ebooks. I just can't stop reading either with my Kindle or my iPhone. I am currently reading Your Digital Life 2.0 and Battle Scar. Now is definitely the best time to be alive. I would never thought that I could carry a small ebook readers every where I go that can store thousands of books.

Think about it this way…If you take one picture and write down three facts each week — at the end of the year you’ll have more than 50 photos of yourself and 150 facts about what life has been like. It would make such an epic All About Me book — and most of the work is already done." - rukristin.com

One Little Word 2018: Simplify

Twenty seventeen has been a very tough year for me. My life has been turned upside down and I was left with emotionally and mentally exhausted. I started last year with an intention of CONNECT. I wanted so badly to CONNECT with my environment and with people in my life. I am not ashamed to admit that I have failed. I am not going to let that failure crippled me. People failed, shit happened and life is a mess. 

So this year I am going to invite SIMPLIFY into my life. I want things to be simple, process to be simple, life to be simple and love to be simple. It's about time I find the calm in all these chaos.

I have been playing with One little word since the last seven years and I have taken the workshop twice. This year I decided to enrolled in One Little word workshop again. Ali Edwards voice shoot me and I want to feel calm and surrounding myself with things and people that calm me.My One Little Word that I choose in the last seven years were:

.simplify-2018

Definition of Simplify



This year I would like to invite

Clear Space: I want to be comfortable with living with less

Be Selective: with all the things or people I want to invite into my life

Get out of Being BUSY mentality. Instead strive for productivity. I need to remember that less is more

What I hope to let go of this year : - Letting go of the things and people who no longer server me of make me happy. Be thankful for them and move forward.

I choose SIMPLIFY as my one little word this year and I want to create a life that suits me and make me happy.

So this year I intend to...

Simplify my life - stop putting up with toxic relationship, save money to travel and choose at least one destination, organise and simplify my digital life - only use one app for one thing, simplify daily routine so that I can be at work on time and letting go of the past.

Simplify my space- Declutter my home, minimise buying physical stuffs including books, declutter digital space

Simplify my spiritual journey - donate RM1 daily , recite Quran daily, solah without fail, write in my gratitude journal 3 things I am thankful for daily

Simplify my memory keeping - be selective when taking photos especially during vacation time, keep a digital journal (with DayOne App) , only use project life app for scrapbooking and only use Goodnotes app when I have the urge to write and doodling for journal. (I thinking of doing a smash book style journal in my Goodnotes app)

Simplify my health and fitness - find a simple healthy recipies, simplify my fitness routine, simplify my skin care routine (stop buying more than one brand for moisturising) and continue to walk more

Simplify my productivity - choose only one tool to help me be productive for at least a year.

Simplify my mind - keep all of my negative thoughts in a journal, dump everything from my brain ( I need to practice morning pages on a regular basis), read a book that help me be a better person (You are a badass comes to mind), Doa all the the time (letting go of control and let Allah do HIS MAGIC)

These are all of the things I intend to do and improve this year. I want to know what it feels like to live a SIMPLE LIFE. Create a living space with less stuffs. Be happy with what I have and find ways to make what I have more fun and exciting. I want to have a clear mind and sleep better at night.

" I AM PERFECT IN MY IMPERFECTION, HAPPY IN MY PAIN, STRONG IN MY WEAKNESS AND BEAUTIFUL IN MY OWN WAY, BECAUSE ALLAH IN ON MY SIDE"

PL // Turkey 2017 Part 3

Alhamdulillah I have finally finished making scrapbook layouts of my Turkey Trip using Project Life app. I have way too many photos to go through and to choose from. I really need to remind myself the memories I want to remember when taking photos. I really need to be selective. Choosing which photos to print out and which photos to delete can be a stressful tasks for me. Storage might be cheeper but my time is not.

So here the remaining of my PHOTOS from this trip

Turkey 29 Turkey 30 Turkey 31 Turkey 32 Turkey 33 Turkey 34 Turkey 35 Turkey 36 Turkey 37 Turkey 38 Turkey 39 Turkey 40

Now I just have to redownload photobook app, arrange all these layouts in 8x8 photobook then I am ready to print them.

I hope that my layouts inspired you to document your trip and print them out. Using Project Life App can really speed up the process. Creating a master piece scrapbook layout is not important. However, documenting your memories are important. Cultivate a good life and record it.

Kindle Oasis 2017

This year I am going to make it my goal to read at least 20 books. This might not be that much book but for me it's a lot. I love reading but making the time to read can be a challenge. 

One of the trick to get me to read more is to have the book with me all the time. This is where my kindle has been very helpful. I can carry this little device with me all the time. And the battery life last more than a week which is pretty amazing. 

Kindle Oasis

I used to own Kindle Voyage but when I saw that Kindle Oasis 2017 has bigger screen size I was excited. So last month I went to Big Bad Wolf 2017 and bought myself a Kindle Oasis from KindleMalaysia. If you live in Malaysia and wanted to own a Kindle, you can buy them from KindleMalaysia. They have been around for sometime now and their services are great. They even offered to help me sell my Voyage.

My thoughts:
1. The display is amazing - it's beautiful, sharp and easier on the eyes
2. Higher storage than my previous kindle - It means I can save a lot of books in this kindle
3. Page turn buttons - This is one of the features that I love. To be able to press a physical buttons feels so great and satisfying compare to just tapping.
4. I just love that this kindle allows me to rotate the book how ever I like. That means I hold the book either with right hand or left hand.
5. Audible is also available with this kindle. I haven't try listening to Audible from this kindle yet but it's just great to have the option here.
6. I love the battery life. It can last me more than a week if I really use it daily. Other wise it can last for almost three weeks before you really really need to charge it.

I am enjoying this kindle so much. I don't know why I read ebook faster compare to physical book. I intend to fully go digital with books this year and I am going to read all of my 20 books for 2018 challenge with on ebook and audible.

I highly recommend this kindle if you have not own a kindle before and want a bigger screen and larger space. It's an investment that can last you a long time.
