"Tomorrow, I stop smoking," my late grandfather said, and he really did


Smokers like to say it is hard to quit smoking.

I don't think so. Because I have seen a sample.

My grandfather, when he was alive, was a smoker. Base on my memory, he did more than two packages a day.

Since I was young till I was about ten years old, I saw him smoke. I was told that he did smoking before I was born.

Not only him, my two uncle-in-law smoked also.

Three of them were told to quit smoking; the two uncles said they would try hard to quit; however, they failed, and they smoke till today.

But my grandfather was different.

When my uncle told him to quit smoking, he said, "Fine. Tomorrow, I stop smoking."

"Tomorrow?"

Everyone was surprised to hear that. All his kids did not believe. They said to him, "Don't force yourself. You can reduce step by step."

"No, I said tomorrow I'm going to stop smoking, and I'll do," my grandfather confirmed.

Actually, no one believed him, but they did not speak.

And yes, start from next day, I did not see him smoke - until he passed away.

Everyone is surprised to see that, even my two uncle in law; no one expects my grandfather to be strong like this.

My grandfather did not say he would reduce or try best to do; he said he quit, and he did it.

I witnessed my own eyes the legend of my grandfather when he determined to quit smoking. And I consider him as my idol or can say my hero. 

Because of this example, I don't think that quitting smoking is difficult. From my point of view, it's smoker, themselves, that does not want to quit. If their mind is high commitment, they can stop. But because they don't want to throw away the smoke food, that's why they cannot quit.

Well, it is hard to force someone to do what they don't want to do. However, I hold wish in my mind that people will understand the significance of stopping smoking. It is not only for them, but also for their family, their next generation, and human and the world. When they sense the importance of no smoke, then, I believe, they will stop immediately, without complain.

Please, everyone.. heal the people, heal the world - by no more cigarette smoke.

4 activities to help you pass non-sleep night happily

I have been having trouble in sleeping. If the clock does not strike 3 or 4 in the morning, my eyes will not shut.

At first, I felt not well; I was angry; and in the morning, I was tired, and I had no good mood.

But after I change my point of view towards this kind of problem, I'm able to live with this new habit, with smile.

How can I survive within this new routine?

It is not easy, but it is not hard as well if you say that you can do it.

At opening, I look from another angle. I think that being not sleep at night is good because:

I am able to do exercise

I have to say in honest that I am lazy to do workout. So, I take this chance to do exercise. 

However, I don't do heavy workout. I just perform leg-up-to-the-wall pose. 

I choose this kind of exercise because it helps my waists, bone; moreover, it is late night, I don't want to cause any disturbing to other.

I do for fifteen minutes only.

I am able to recite Dharma

I am Buddhist.

Before, I was serious sick, then I was told to recite Dharma. After I practiced it, my illness was better and better.

When I was quite good, I went to work, and I did not have time to pray to the Buddha.

Hence, I take the night, when I don't sleep, to recite praying to the illustrated one.

Usually, I spend almost one hour.

I am able to do meditation

While I was healing disease with Buddhism way, I performed meditation too. 

Then I rarely did it because I was busy in job.

When I quit career and become self-employed, and when I have sleeping trouble, I have chance to practice it again.

This activity is good for the people that has to go to work in the morning too. You know, it will help you to maintain energy and mood. Even though you don't sleep at night, or you sleep only one or two hours, still in the morning, you will be well like you have four to six hours sleeping.

No need to practice like professional. Be simple.

You can choose between sit and sleep.

If you choose to sit, just sit cross leg, put right leg on left leg. Then set left hand on the leg and put right hand on your left hand. After, you close your eyes, and breathe in and out. Focus on your breath.. it is long, it is short. Perform this as long as you can.

If you choose to sleep, just sleep straight, and put your left palm on your stomach, then put your right palm on left hand. After that, close your eyes, then perform breath like mentioned above.

Sometimes, when I do meditation, I fall asleep.

I am able to listen to music

When I work, I ever listen to music. But I don't have time to concentrate on the meaning of the music/song.

Different from when I listen to it at night, I am able to enjoy with singer. I am able to get meaning of the song, aim of the song composer, rhythm of the music etc.

I find it is so romantic to listen to the song at night. Use low volume. Um, very relax.

 

Just these few things, I can pass the long night happily.

Try any of above activities. Or try all.

I bet you will find non-sleep night is not a problem anymore.

How I draw my eyebrow naturally

Everyone want to be pretty. Me too.

When I go out, people say my eyebrow is not good. Well, I think I should fix it.

But I don’t have money to go to salon, and I am not skilled in makeup. What should I do?

Nothing I can't do, if I say I can.

Even though my eyebrow is not perfect, but I can make it best.

Use my not professional skill.. to create beautiful eyebrow for myself.

First, I comb it to make it stay properly.

Then I use makeup brush with black shade powder of eye makeup to pat my eyebrow gently until I am pleased with it.


 

Okay, well done.

Thanks to myself.

You too. You can create eyebrow, the very best one for you by yourself.

3 Simple ways to find strongness and weakness to improve yourself

If you think of creating potential for your living, then you have to find your strong and weak point.

What is benefit?

When you know clearly about yourself, what you're good at, what you're bad at, what you should improve, what you should change etc. then you will be able to improve your living life, to reduce risk/problem to happen in your life that causes by human and nature.

You might think you know yourself. In this case, I cannot say you're right or wrong. However, whether you know or don't know about yourself, you can use following points to make sure and to make your living better - if you have met a lot of failures or your life does not grow up. And it does not make you spend dollars.

1. Find a psychic

It is considered a fun, as well, when you go to someone who can analyze your characteristic through mysterious cards. But I don't think you need to go to person. Nowadays, everything is online; so, use it.

Search for any site that can give you free of charge telling about your personality and characteristics - and I think it is best if you take birthday fortune.

Birthday is best thing to find your birth and natural characteristic, and it is at least correct about 60 percents.

After you get the telling, read it and take the content to consider carefully. Even the strong points and weak points and their advise, you need to take it and think.

You can compare the content and the advice with what you have been through. It is good source to indicate that you are on right way or you should change or not - and what things you should change.

2. Ask friends to give comment

If you want to be sure, more, especially related to your attitude, characteristic, then you can go to your friends. Not one, and don't go to two or four or six. It should be three or five. Make sure before you go that those friends can be trusted - mean they are people that can give you true words.

It is not easy to listen to someone criticize, but you have to endure if you want to improve yourself. Furthermore, listen only; don't give reason to each their comment. Listen until they finish, then take their comments to think.

Don't be angry or wish to revenge if your friends criticize you harshly or if you hear them say you are not good and next friend say you good. People might see about you differently. Therefore, try to be humble, kind, patient and wide mind. If you can listen to the harsh words with peaceful mind, then you can beat other hard work or problem in the future.

All critiques from your friends have to be taken and think carefully, and yes, don't forget analyze with the telling from physic. In addition, remind what you have done or gone through, then you can find out more data about yourself - strong and weak, good and bad.

3. Ask your family

Don't be shy or fear to ask more from your family members. Whether elder people or young people, you should ask them to talk honestly what they see about you.

Same as above.. try to listen carefully, patiently, and do not need to find excuse to correct yourself or to make them understand about you. If you listen and find out that any speech or action that they might misunderstand your intention when you had done to them, it means there will be any barrier that causes such matter to happen; therefore, try to find it and fix it.

Still like I already mentioned. Don't be angry, don't wish for revenge. And you have to put the comments together, from birthday predict, friends, and family, and consider. One more thing, use your present situation and what you have gone through to be indicator if you are on right path of life, use correct method in your living, etc.

 

Just these three ways, if you are successful person from the start, then this will give you light to more success. If you are usually failed, then you will be opened a door to be a better life - or if you are in trouble, it might be able to guide you to leave from the problem.

However, you have to edit the method following your own situation.

Don't be afraid to change.

Life is to learn. So, learn everything even pain and wrong choice.
