My personal theme this year of the dog is mindfulness. Initially, I wanted it to be “loyalty” because dogs, hahaha. But then I felt that mindfulness was more apt because in this age of too much distractions, being mindful was becoming a challenge for many people. I settled for mindfulness because this year, I wanted to live more and achieve more. My goals are composed of the usual stuff (e.g. health, wealth, relationships, work, personal growth, etc.) but this time, I really wanna focus more on being mindful and living in the moment while working on reaching my goals.
When you have high expectations on something, the chance that you’d get disappointed is also high. Through the years, I’ve learned not to put high expectations on anything or anybody. I don’t exactly believe in “lasting first impressions.” Most of the time, the humble ones produce the best output and shine the brightest. Erhm, make that all the time.
Same thing with services. When you are paying for services, the cheap ones are usually substandard and good only for a single use. In this case, the chance to be disappointed is high as well. But I don’t want to generalize. I’ve seen and dealt with several service providers who came cheap but delivered on their promises. It’s a matter of luck, I guess. Oh and, online reviews are a good gauge when it comes to these service providers.
