The Good Things To Consider When Purchasing A Guitar

There are numerous factors for consideration when purchasing a guitar that. The size of the instrument must be taken into consideration. A person must feel comfortable with the way that the instrument seals in their hands. The size of the amplification devices needed to make the guitar sound good it is also important to think about prior to making the purchase. The price of the item is also an important consideration for people who are trying to follow their musical passion on a budget.

Style

The visual appearance of the guitar must be taken into consideration. If the person is comfortable with a more modern style musical instrument they may want to purchase something small. If they are looking to do live events they may be more interested in the electric style instrument.The salesperson will often be able to help a person finds the best fretless bass guitars in the store.

Size

Many people underestimate the importance of having the right size musical instrument. It has to fit in their hands comfortably so that they can play without interruption. The more comfortable a person needs with their musical instrument the easier it will be for them to connect with their audience when they are playing. Finding the right instrument is all about making sure that it is a comfortable fit.

Amplification

This type of amplifier that is needed in order to make the instrument sound amazing is also something to think about carefully before making the purchase. Sometimes the amplifier is more expensive than the actual instrument. Working with a salesperson to find the right instrument is usually advisable.

Week 3: Unleashing the Child in Me

Week 3 is about the inner child in me. Following the advice from the book "Imagine the Life You'd Love to Live, then Live It"  by Peg Conley, writing using your nondominant hand will help you liberate your inner self.





This exercise recover the inner child in me. A vivid recollection of my childhood art activity. I remember I was writing characters hard to understand by adults but for me I was writing letters, words, phrases... written beautifully using different colored pens. 

But aside from that, this activity has a great impact on me. as I wrote repeatedly the phrase "Continue doing good things and you will be okay" (actually the original is will be blessed)I remember when I was still new at our work place, I do not know nothing about the job. I was secretly bullied. But I strive to do better and was encourage by a stranger whom I called an angel named Glenda who left that beautiful message.

I know I've been proud at work and feels like I know everything. But today I remember I should keep my feet on the ground and should always remind myself to continue doing good things.

Week 2: Take A Class

Last week I got an email through Seminar Philippine subscription inviting readers to join Sha Nacino's writing workshop. I am tempted... really tempted to join the class. That time I didn't care much about the fee because I do believe it will benefit me since part of my bucket list is to write a bestselling book.

But I procrastinate until  the deadline for enrolment was over. I wish I had my boyfriend's aggressive character then I probably enrolled the moment I feel the urge of joining the class. On the other hand, there are so many things that I need to practice, learn and hone my skills. That includes Photoshop, digital design, sketching, fashion illustration, water color and lately calligraphy. I just can't stop "the Jack-of-all trade" in me. I guess I should stop browsing Instagram and Pinterest.



And since I don't want to spend at this point of time knowing that there is a possibility that I will go home without job, I am taking class through free tutorials online. One day at a time I kwow I will be able to hone my skills.

Week 1: Imagine

All successful people, men and women, are big dreamers. They imagine what their future could be, ideal in every respect, and then they work every day toward their distant vision, that goal or purpose.
- BRIAN TRACY - Universal Laws of Success 

IMAGINE... If I could picture out what would be a perfect life, for me it's to be near with my family. Being near with them gives me a total happiness.

But oh! Canada, please don't let me go home yet!

If only money isn't an issue then I wouldn't be working here in this very cold country living a very boring life. Sometimes I wonder how my other siblings live so miserably. They are professional, working in the government but they are living pay check to pay check more often not enough for their needs and to the point their children suffer from too much poverty. If only I have lots of money then I will give them an investment to build a business where they can earn more money. But the question is, are they reliable to handle business?

Thus, my biggest dream is to create a business where I can involve family members. A business close to my heart is about crafting, decorating, or something that we can use our creative skills especially that we are family who loves art but wasn't hone enough. Yes we do have untapped skills given by God and need to be share.

Aside from that, I want to write a book. I may not be good in writing (for now). But I have this feeling that I could be a best-selling author. I just want to claim it. I believe I have the skill to write. I was a creative story teller to my nephews and nieces when they were young and I want to share it through a book and make illustrations of it.

I want to be a great artist. I want to draw... to paint.... to burst colors in my so boring life. And someday be recognized internationally.

Then I want to meet Bo Sanchez and be a member his circle. Bo is one of my favorite authors. And since I joined Truly Rich Club, I learned a lot and inspired by the daily message through God Whispers send to my inbox. TRC taught me so many things not just about inspiration but feeding my knowledge about finances.

And about personal matters, I envision myself walking down the aisle while my man is waiting in the altar. It's been a long engagement already... good thing we can still both hold on. Call it LOVE! I believe this is the year. Hopefully...

52 Aha! - A Journey to a Life I Vision

I was digging my old post, and I noticed I am not really good in finishing a goal. I am only good at the beginning. Perhaps a daily post is not really doable especially that I can't be online everyday.



I read a book, "Imagine the Life You'd Love to Live, then Live It", by Peg Conley. 52 inspiring ideas to help you develop new habits and discipline to love a life that you are dreaming of. I believe it is perfect to challenge myself to create a new habit by practicing the tips that the author laid in every chapter.

I will document my journey in this blog, one chapter every week for a year. Hopefully, after week 52 I will be able to see a different path - one that will favor me.

All About Sansa

I haven't talk so much about our dog, Sansa. I think I've only mentioned about her in this blog twice only. Well I guess from now on Sansa will be part of this blog. Just to let know she grows up into a sweet monster - big, hyper but so sweeeet.

Sansa



She turned 1 last October, but still acts like a puppy. They said usually Sansa's breed matured at age of two. Aside from playing balls she also loves stuff toys. But with her large fangs, just imagined how many stuffed toys she ruined.

Sansa, the pet dog


Although, Sansa is an outdoor dog. We decided to let her stay inside our house because of the harsh weather condition here in Alberta. Good thing she's potty trained now.
