The Laws of Attraction

Excerpts from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A more modern consensus among New Thought thinkers is that the Law of Attraction says people's thoughts (both conscious and unconscious) dictate the reality of their lives, whether or not they're aware of it. Essentially "if you really want something and truly believe it's possible, you'll get it", but putting a lot of attention and thought onto something you don't want means you'll probably get that too.

Many modern proponents say that the Law of Attraction has roots in Quantum Physics, though no reputable scientist or publication ever supported the alleged scientific credentials of this theory. According to proponents of this law, thoughts have an energy that attracts like energy. In order to control this energy, proponents state that people must practice four things:

1. Know what you want.
2. Ask the universe for it.
3. Feel and behave as if the object of your desire is on its way.
4. Be open to receiving it.

Gonna try it?

Things that need to be done vs things I wish will get done by itself

Things that need to be done:

Sort out wedding venue
Decide on wedding date
Find a wedding dress
Sit and wait to be screamed at by my wedding planner
Work very hard to make more money to pay for things and people to solve my problem for me
Lose weight
Spend less time doing redundant things online
Study mandarin

plus lots more.

A Splurge A Month.

Working is hard enough. It is important to self reward. Since June 2008, I have implemented a buy a gift for myself once a month, (excluding impulsive and/or inexpensive buys, or necessities). These once a months are things I usually will not buy, and may or may not be expensive. Should it be expensive this month, I will need self motivation to buy something less dear the next (or alternatively, work harder to get more commission to make it up).

So far my buys have been:

June: Bonia red shoes
July: Longchamp bag
Aug: 2 FCUK shirts
Sep: Braun Buffel wallet + my Hokkaido trip loots
Oct: Coach wristlet (although it's not yet time, but I have ordered it from NYC already!)

It's great to look forward to a splurge a month because I believe (at least in my line), the more you spend the more you earn! Ambitions and goals help.

Next up is digital SLR camera for my birthday month, but that I am not sure yet if I am up for learning the new skill. ;)

I survived!

I pulled off my Audrey Hepburn's breakfast at Tiffany look with the dress I intended to wear for ROM but was black, hence rejected by everyone; the pretty gloves I bought in London without any intention and idea of where to use; the cheap costume jewellery which apparently, some of my colleagues thought were part of my si dian jing (4 pieces of gold); and best of all - I pulled off the singing performance! All these days of practicing using my diaphragm were all worth it - it's not the same playing an instrument and singing.

And I am now back from Hokkaido where I had a lot of fun. Now for work to start all over again. Boo!
