Why Against All Odds, Adopting (Adapting) Best Practices, and Beyond for Cool Eustress?

Because Cool Eustress is also about the above timeless and priceless principles.

You make something that’s nearly nothing or of no value into something important and beneficial by being resourceful and resilient.

There’s no shortcut or easy path to riches, success of any degree, and breakthroughs.

You must keep going and keep building on what you have not on what you don’t have, wherever you are, because you have the attention, time, and intangible resources to really do it, to really make it happen.

Bird’s Nest

Bird’s Nest with its Egg

I took these shots before sunset in our neighbor’s place about three days ago.

One of my neighbors pointed me to this hidden bird’s nest when I was walking on my way to my abode.

It really caught well my full attention because I really want the bird’s egg to be a new bird naturally without any external harm.

I somehow had difficulties taking a clear photograph of the bird’s nest and it’s egg because I want it to stay untouched and undisturbed.

Isn’t it a wonder to have a closer look of a bird’s nest with its egg in the middle of a neighborhood of the capital city of the Philippines?

It’s a Cool Eustress that will somehow make you grateful if you love the wonders of nature.


Think Big: I Love these Words from the Book

Think Big: I Love these Words from the Book

From the book Think Big of Ben Carson, MD:

In writing Think Big, I want to discuss the concept of success—which the word for, unfortunately, has often been mistakenly used.

For some, success means making it to the top of the ladder, regardless of what one has to do to get there.

These same people measure success by what they accumulate and how many millions of dollars they are worth.

Frankly, it saddens me when I speak at schools and during the question-and-answer period students ask:

“What kind of house do you live in?”

“How many cars do you have?” “Do you have a swimming pool?”

As far as I am concerned, the money and what it buys are insignificant. Achievers are going to have those things anyway.

What is important—what I consider success—is that we make a contribution to our world.

I think of success as reaching beyond ourselves and helping other people in specific ways.

Live in the Moment

Live in the Moment


I really love to share now this very important matter to you wherein you can truly learn a lot from the nature of dogs.

I have read and learned it many years ago from the book titled Cesar Millan’s Short Guide To A Happy Dog.

Since that moment whenever I see and remember a dog, this very important and life-changing lesson from dogs for humans to be reminded always and to learn so much is truly shaping my life to be a better person each and every day.

Here’s the very important life-changing lesson you can truly learn so much from dog’s nature, which I read and learned from the book many years ago that I’m working each and every day to live with:

Dogs that have lost a limb, hearing, or sight do not lament the abilities that are gone.

They deal with the abilities they still have, and they don’t waste time feeling sorry for themselves.

With our human obsession with the past, we are the ones who relive a dog’s former traumas and then overload them with sympathy and affection that, in the dog’s mind, is unearned.

Dogs do not hold grudges or brood about the past.

Even in the case of two dogs that do not get along and fight when in sight of each other, some remembered incident of the past does not set off another fight.

Rather, the sight of the other dog triggers the instinctual recall, but even then, the dogs may not fight until one of them interprets the other as doing something that is aggressive.

Once a fight is over, they have no hard feelings, and neither plans how to kill the other in his sleep.

Contrast that human grudges, where an insult (real or imagined) can lead to years of enmity and bad feelings.

This natural living in the moment is what makes it possible to rehabilitate dogs.

Because they do not cling to the past or worry about the future, they are open-minded and constantly learning in the present.

They do not resent being corrected or disciplined because, once it’s over, it’s over.

They associate it with the moment it happened, and then they let go.

This is one of the most powerful lessons we can learn from dogs. Being obsessed with the past or future can lead to many negative emotions: resentment, regret, anxiety, fear, or envy.

Letting go of what is over and done, and of what we cannot control, is the path to our own fulfillment in the here and now.

It is also one more way of being that will help you to have a balanced relationship with your dog.

“If there is just one thing that I want you to truly learn from dogs in your entire lifetime. This is it. LIVE IN THE MOMENT.” —–Byron M. Vidal—


Can’t Stop The Feeling

Honestly without any degree of exaggeration, it’s my first time ever in my entire life now, today, to post a blog through Android mobile phone at this website of mine because I often use a desktop to do it.

I’ll take advantage of this Android mobile phone to post often every day and every night blogs for you that will somehow be beneficial to you particularly about the many books/paperbacks I read slowly but surely each and every day in the morning, in the afternoon, and in the evening, there are many times until sunrise or so.

I must have done posting this for you before in a very long time but there are many times in life I agree often about what Jim Rohn said, “There are many times in life fast is slow and slow is fast.”

Like the sunrise, sunset, and seasons, they are not that fast or real fast, they really take their time.

As always in my life, there are no regrets ever in my entire life. There’s a saying I often think about each and every day of my life, “Each moment has it’s own beauty.”

Can’t Stop The Feeling because it’s my most favorite song since 2015 or 2016 until now, 2018. In fact, the song is the primary reason why I bought an ordinary mobile phone on 2015 or 2016 before this Android mobile phone I’m using now, which I bought on December 8, 2017, just to be able to listen so many times to that song because I don’t use a mobile phone for many years.

Can’t Stop The Feeling song of Justin Timberlake is really making me dance freestyle and upbeat so much every day, passionately. I think I already listen and dance freestyle upbeat with the song hundreds of times or more than a thousand times.

You must dance freestyle and upbeat each and every day with real good songs of your choice when you are able because it’s very good for your true health and overall sense of well being.

I’ll continue this post later. Have fun sensibly!
