I am a forgetful person. Hahaha~ I easily forget about; where I put my water bottle, where I put my shoes, where are my keys(the most common of all). My mom would joke, telling me “You are so forgetful. Maybe one day you would forget about yourself! LOL.”
“Forget about myself hmm…” (Hopefully not)
Living in a fast paced society, where we face different issues every day. It is pretty easy to be affected by what we see, listen and feel the things around us. Sometimes, these distractions kind of occupy a huge storage space in our brains. And thus overload us with, worries, anxieties, and problems.
This Sunday’s sermon Pastor Jung Myung Seok delivered a message titled
“You have to remember in order to be happy. The reason your joy disappeared was because you forgot.”
Jung Myung Seok
As I was listening to the message, my thoughts flew to various events I had in the past with family, friends, and people. At different places and a different time. Thinking about those happy times, I smiled at myself like an idiot. (Luckily everyone was too focused on the message. No one noticed hehe)
In a complicated relationship with food
Food has been such a big part of me. Especially Ramen…I love Ramen so much and of course my staple food, rice. I cannot live without rice. I also love Korean food! Kimbap! Kimichi Pancake~~~Hahaha. Lately, I have been pretty conscious about dieting habits. As you grow older, you realize that there is a limit to the amount of food you can eat and it affects a lot of your daily activities. Therefore, being aware of that and trying to prevent further health implications in the future. I have been putting some effort into making changes to my usual eating habits. Though the changes are not that significant as of now hehe ^^ But still it is a good step towards a better self.
You should eat, but make the effort to eat better. And you should live, but you have to take care of your body and make the effort.

Celebrated my sister’s “**” (censored) birthday at Tae Woo Restaurant. Famous for its Jajangmyeon (Korean Black Bean Sauce noodle)
This is my second visit to Tae Woo Restaurant, couldn’t come here often unless for special occasion purpose, because the prices of the dishes are not that cheap aka expensive. However, I would say, the food here is worth that price, and if you are having cravings for some quality Jajangmyeong you should try out this store.
Yesterday and Sunday, we had our first, church-based organized Spiritual retreat. Discarding the old and trying something new this year, while aligning with the direction given by our Senior Pastor, Joshua Jung Myung Seok. For the first time, after many many many years having our retreats in church…We decided to organize it at other places.
I heard from my seniors, that our church leaders put in a lot of effort hunting down for places to have this retreat. While considering our “pockets” and making sure that it is both financially affordable and also enjoyable. Thankfully, because of their efforts, I really enjoyed the retreat and it was a spiritually and physically rewarding experience (*Whisper: especially the buffet dinner LOL)
Exams are just around the corner! Are you all studying very hard like me? Haha. I recall in the past, when I was young, when I was still a baby (I can still remember!), I learn while studying what my parents do and by mimicking their movement and actions I learn and practice on my own body. As time passes as I repeat the actions it becomes me. Whether it is eating, walking, jumping all actions and movement in life. We went through the phases of studying and taking action a step at a time. Have you forgotten how you came so far as an adult? Do the same for life and the work you are doing, people grow stronger in such ways, studying and taking action.
“Studying and taking action“

This proverb written by Pastor Jung Myung Seok reminded me of an article a friend of mine written, titled: The importance of talking to God in daily life. God is always full of words towards people. But somehow, because of our own busy lives, working, studying that we often disassociate with him, makes him always waiting anxiously for us to speak to him on the other side. Through my friend’s experience in his daily life. I realize, we should always first initiate a conversation with God and he will pour out his words of realization to us.
God has tons of ‘things that He wants to tell’ to a person whoever it may be. Therefore, all you need to do is you, yourself, speaking and pleading with God.

“How often do I check myself while doing my work during my daily life.” I thought. It is often easy to neglect and get distracted by voices of people, environment or problems around us. Are you feeling disheartened because of certain issues or problems? Take a step back, take a deep breath and carefully examine what you are thinking, and doing. Instead of focusing what you are lacking in, focus on how you need to make yourself better, the problem is not the issue, the thoughts are the issue.
I told myself “The future is full of possibilities, I have that possibility.” The future is created through the process of you being positive about it.
“Carefully examine what you do. A person who acts thinking about < the future > also is ‘high in level.’ ”
