Trying to remember those days

I have come across these questions from other users but it is only now that I have the chance to write about it when I read the article of momentswithmatti. You can check her post here.

So these are the questions:

Flashback to a childhood memory.

Princessbusayo wrote about her typing experience and about Mavis Beacon. This take me back to my younger years. We have a portable typewriter back then. Computers and internet are not yet the norm. I remember seeing lots of typists near universities back then here in the city and they type like there's no tomorrow - so fast it's mesmerizing. The sound of fingers hitting those keys and those keys hitting the pin. It's all fascinating to me.

My older siblings were in high school then and one of their subjects is typing. Whenever they come home during school breaks, they would bring home works and one of those is finishing typing exercises.

I like watching them do their thing. They also asked me to practice whenever I have time for surely I will be taking that class too when I reach high school. So I did. I mastered the letters but not the numbers and other symbols. Those are my Waterloo.

I cam across Mavis Beacon when I started working already and I remember doing that when we have breaks from work. Those were fun times.

Do you feel deserving of love?

Yup, I do! Love was shown to me by the people around me. I must have been doing something right even thought I wasn't always that perfect for me to receive such love. I even receive it from you guys although we are strangers and haven't met each other in person.

Love comes in many forms. It could be shown through material things or in words and actions or sometimes even in silence. Your presence alone can mean so much.

This world may be full of hate and evil things but love still prevails in the end. That's why I am grateful for whatever I receive and what I lack in life. It makes me realize how much love is there in the world.

What is the most lofty thing you are dealing with now?

Myself.

We all know that our greatest enemy or shall I say the one that we are challenged the most is how to be better. It is a daily struggle for me to think of how to do better, how to do more so that I can be of help to others more. How can I be expandable?

Still, there is that voice that says I am doing enough. I know that but I know I can do more.

So you see, it is a constant battle within that is the hardest thing to deal with. Whenever there are responsibilities or events in life that one needs to face, we are always faced with the challenge of how to do more. If only we can do more in a short period of time so we can face other challenges.

What do you think of your worst habit?

I think they are the worst :D

Indulgence.

I like to eat. As much as I do a lot of activities which I post here all the time, I eat more than I lose. So don't be surprised if you see me in person and I don't look fit as you would have expected lol!

Sometimes I over spend and buy impulsively because I can't help myself. At the back of my mind, I kept thinking this is to reward myself. I deserve it. Also, YOLO, right? Then I would be worrying where to get the money to use to pay bills later on?

I always talk about time management. To give yourself time to rest. Give yourself a break. However, even I don't listen to my own advice because I wanted to watch this or I wanted to do that.

To add to indulgence, I think not enough discipline is also one of my worst habits.

Do you think that good things come after suffering?

One of characteristics I have developed over the years is to look into the positive side of things. Change in perspective. Paradigm shift.

You are already tired from work and other responsibilities and to focus all your left energy into negativity is toxic. Why not be more appreciative instead?

Yes, allow yourself time to grieve and feel sorry. Allow yourself to cry and feel pity. However, learn to control your emotions better. Train yourself to control what you can control for life is not always what we wanted it to be.

There will always be suffering but in order to deal with it better, you have to allow yourself to feel things and then learn to manage them.

Soon you will see that beyond suffering, there are good things that come out from that. It is hard to do it but once you learn to be more in control of your emotions, it will be easier.

Everything is a test. Nothing is constant in this world even happiness and suffering. Sooner or later, the sun will shine again.

What do you want to do before you die?

Check everything in my bucket list which include:

Travel the world and meet you all! If not all, then at least most of you.

It is also my desire to be able to set my family financially stable. It would be nice if I can help them all be in a position that they are self-sufficient for a long time.

Bungee jumping. Ride a hot air balloon. Paragliding. These are the things that I have been wanting to do.

I wish I could find the cure to get rid of greed and poverty. Wouldn't that be a nice thing?

I mentioned yesterday that I wanted to do two articles in a day at least but it sounds easier said than done. This is my first article for the day and it's already late afternoon.

Anyway, thanks again for your time dropping by. Until the next!

You made me remember when my mom was working as a secretary with his boss who was blind. That was when I saw what typewriter looked like. She would bring it home to work on assignments and the sound of it is what I love to hear.

Also, about what you said here; "Whenever there are responsibilities or events in life that one needs to face, we are always faced with the challenge of how to do more. If only we can do more in a short period of time so we can face other challenges."

I also feel like finishing on time and jumping onto the next challenge but is it possible? Lol

I thought I should do more this afternoon as I have other pending things, but guess what? I gave myself break by sleeping unknowingly for an hour. I need it right? rest 😆

And I'm still using typewriters, presently in school. I never had the experience of using typewriters when I was younger, but just started using it now. Due to my course of study; it has been made pretty important. Nice prompt, I love what you said about love, and what you plan to do before you die.

There are a lot of communities there from food, to travel, to nature, to activities, etc. I think you have to find the community that you like. Hive dollar or HBD is their currency there. They have their own wallet where you can store your earnings. It is like Steemit. If you have Steemit account, you can post in hive too or blurt.

May naabutan ako na typewriter noon kuya, para syang makina pero oldies masyado. Maingay yung keyboard kada pindot mo, naalala ko lagi ako nakaupo sa lap ni dad kada nagpipindot sya dun, tapos pinapapindot nyarin ako. Nakakamiss ung moments nayun, ngayon ko lang bigla naalala dahil dito.
