FEBRUARY 2020
“REMEMBER LOVE MONTH”
(Don’t expect appreciation, fight right, give proofs of love)
How did you use your strengths help you remember or show love?
February

 This Is What my Birth Month Reveals About Love Life


 It is my birth month and it’s a blessed month for me .

 Birth month can actually describe pretty accurately what your love life looks like. Month I
were born in can reveal to you how others see me , my feelings and thoughts about life,
and just my overall personality.

 I received a lot of girts on this month from friends and my girlfriend as well in this case
I’m talking about valentine’s day.
 I went to different places during February restaurants cinemas and also I travelled to
ilocos do Norte province with friends I enjoyed a lot during the month of the February.

 If you were born in the month of February, then your love life is pretty adventurous as
well.

 You are extremely passionate with the person that you are with at the time, except
sometimes you can become emotionally distant from the people you want to be with
most.
 I’m the kind of person o likes to explore new thins and claim the things desire me
 People born in February are the creative, imaginative types. They enjoy dedicating
themselves to big projects and love deep, philosophical conversations.
 Shallow people are boring and annoying to them. They're called free-spirited by those
close to them and the whole world is an adventure just waiting for them to take it.

 School lifestyle
 Focus, be patient & trust the process. Don’t think about the past or future.   Focus on
being fully present. 

 Learn to control your emotions.


 Know when to take a loss and reset.  Hoping a bad play will turn around doesn’t always
work and can result in more losses versus cutting the losses earlier.
 So far this month, we’ve talked a lot about “love” and what it means to respect your
body, in my mind and my journey with weight and health. my Weight Matters Campaign,
on the other hand, understands that this journey can often be confusing and challenging,
so it can be difficult to muster up the esteem to tackle obstacles along the way.
 That’s why for the month of February, is bringing me one week’s worth of motivation to
help me channel that inner confidence in myself and my journey. By staying refreshed
with the right inspiration, I’m more equipped to overcome challenges with healthy
determination. So… stay motivated, stay empowered and keep my eyes on what lies in
front of me

MARCH 2020
“LIGHT EN UP MONTH”
(Enjoy the fun of failure, study smart, enjoy now, and ask for help if
needed)
How did you use your strengths to lighten up?

March
 The key to build external success comes from inside. This is how I did use my strength
to lighten up, using tips building up my inner strength:

 1. Asking myself "Why?" Then find my answer.


 "I've seen people that most successfully avoid complacency and mediocrity when they
have a purpose, when they can answer the Why question."
 A quote from Shakespeare: 'The meaning of life is to find your gift.'

o When you have a purpose you do your best work, you find your deepest
strength. That's when the desire for SOMETHING can transcend the desire for
safety. Needing to make a difference overcomes the fear of failing." Greater
focus on purpose cultivates the strength and motivation to tackle setbacks.

 2. Putting myself first.


 Making my well-being my top priority will help me find the life flow that I can
control and maintain.
 It's like filling my own well or putting on my own oxygen mask before trying to
help someone else. "Strength comes from knowing you have the equipment and
tools to handle life's challenges,". "Give yourself time to build that equipment and
procure the tools to direct the life you want to lead. I argue that being egocentric
makes you a stronger contributor to your own goals, which ultimately provides a
positive outcome for those in your sphere of influence who rely on your strength
for progress."

 3. Training my mental and emotional body, as well as my physical self.

 "My body is stronger than I think and it WILL give me what I need, when i need it,
IF i feed it the right mindset. That's as important as the right nutrients. A positive
mindset and an even pace will get me through even the roughest of times."

 Decide, commit, and act.


o "Being strong relies on the efficient use of energy," she explains. "Indecision
saps energy and promotes the failure to act, so learn to be decisive. I consider
that a gift you give to yourself and others."

 Don't let fear factor into my decision making.

o Hate to see people reject opportunities because of the fear that they can't do it or
something might go wrong.

o I understand the need to consider the pros and cons of our decisions, but be self-
aware, too. Are you identifying risks or being just plain fearful? If fear is keeping
you from the next step/adventure/challenge, then you are allowing it to defeat
you. It makes you your own worst enemy, derailing your growth and
development.

 Embracing what scares me.


o Physique 57 has a tagline: Do the undoable. This means proving that you can
take on immense challenges, which will yield increased confidence and inner
strength. "Life can be a constant struggle between what you don't think you can
do (and remain in status quo) and what you absolutely can do (progress).
Strength comes from doing what you thought you couldn't do. When you swap
out comfort for challenge, change happens and the result is a better, stronger
you. It is exhilarating and memorable."

 De-clutter your mind.


o Even as little as 10 minutes of meditation a day removes the mental junk that
depletes your energy. It restores focus and clarity. The people I know who
meditate are one step ahead of others. Their minds move faster, they are
mentally clear and much more decisive. They are a force to be reckoned with.

 Become my own best friend.

o "When I exercise or prep for a tough assignment, I feel like I am spending time
with my best friend. I love the joy of watching that person make noticeable
progress and, even better, breakthroughs. This time spent with my striving self is
mentally nourishing and gives me the strength to do it again and again. I like that
person and want to see her often."

 Practice calm and self-control in adversity.

o Aggression eats away at strength and creativity, replacing them with hostility and
closemindedness.Panic also weakens the soul, preoccupying the mind and
prohibiting my light from shining through. Replace them with calm, controlled
perseverance, which will help me achieve whatever I’ve set out to do.
REFLECTION FOR THE MONTH OF MARCH:
Q: Did your strengths help you achieve personal fulfillment for this month?
 The answer is a big yes: When you are true to yourself and passionate about
your life, you choose to see choice rather than challenge. Your true essence is
not set up on false pretenses because whatever paths you choose in life,
personal, academic or professional, are completely congruent with who you are.

Q: List the 3 things that you are thankful about for this month.
• I am thankful for life ;
• I am thankful for my family ;
• I am thankful for the opportunities to learn and be a better person each day.

separate from Him is to be void of all these things.

Life Story
THE PAST
Write the story of your past. Be sure to describe what you’ve overcome, and the
personal strengths that allowed you to do so.

My name is Alfeu Antunes Cavimbi , I was borne on February 22,1996 in ANGOLA, As


I was told by my parents my birth wasn’t hard and everything went good by God
grace. As a child I started to use my to use my senses to dis cover the things
surround me, to touch things put it into my mouth, start to crawl. In this stage of life I
was using my motor sense to interact and communicate with my environment, later on
I started to walk and speak some words.
My childhood so far I can remember was happy and funny as a normal or any child
would have. My childhood was based on playing, laugh and run, I didn’t mind about in
the time when I was playing with my little friends.

When I arrived here I become more social person God made me realize that is not
good to be alone, we need to be together. There is a quotation that says ’’man is not
an island’’ means the we need one another . I am still shy but not more than before ,
now I can express myself, now I can speak, God has helping me in all the aspects of
my life . and I thank him for the friends that He gave me here they are helping me a
lot. Now I can say that I am blessed to be a person that I am. I am beginning to make
decisions that will change my life in the future with God always.
One of the factors that affected my personality in good way my relationship with
God , it has been really important to me growing spiritually with God . there is nothing
more than have a close relationship with god.

The factor of having a mother and father that I love , who is concern about my
situation in the school , social problems but above everything spiritual life every single
time, also the friends that I have now , I realize that good friends are more than
friend , most of the time trust friends , they are brothers, and they are persons that
you can trust.
THE PRESENT
Describe your life and who you are now. How do you differ from your past self? What
are your strengths now? What challenges are you facing?

I’M Alfeu Antunes Cavimbi , I was born on February 22,1996 in ANGOLA, I have a normal life
the a lot of adventures , I’m better person than before God change me and wake me up, I
was someone that wasn’t loving too much the gift of life because of the ups and downs but
God change my life.
Things was are time a lot stuff that doesn’t make sense to me because I was immature , times
come as I was growing up I could understand life .
I have one quote that I like ‘’ live for life or die for nothing’’ it gives a lot of motivation to keep
fighting and work had in this life with God in the middle of everything .
I’m more mature now and am very focus in what I want , times before I was not taking
serious some aspects in my life but now I do
My challenges are first is what am facing on school a lot of requirements and others , with
the situation of coronavirus 19 life is being hard but we are praying that it pass soon.
My life is going well thanks God and I love the way that live my life .
THE FUTURE
Write about your ideal future. How will your life be different than it is now? How will you
be different than you are now?

As I said above I want to be a engineer a successful man so I can give a received


from my parents , I will keep pray to God to help me and give to me strength that I
can finish my studies a have a nice job so I can do everything that I want, I want also
to help my country financially and in others aspects .
My life will be different because I will be working and having my own family that why am
giving my best on my studies.

I will be better than now because I will be independent of my parent and I will my
owns responsibilities , I will be having my famly, job, my owns companies I will be a
successful man .
I totally sure the way that I think will be diffent my kind of life as well if Gods allowed me
.
I will keeping praying to God so I will be able to live my life us a planed.
LETTER TO SELF

Dear _self___,

You may not know me, but I’ve written this letter specifically for you. Yes, you. I know you’re
feeling perfect right now and that your current situation makes the world seem like are
important.

So I’ve decided to sit down and write you a good l’ fashioned motivational letter. No deep
profound thoughts, no life contemplation, just straight pure energy.

I’m here to tell you to love yourself and that everything is going to be okay – you already know
that.

I’m writing this to tell you it’s time to toughen up. That’s not to say you’re not already tough or
that what you’re feeling is not normal. But you’ve worried enough. You’ve regretted enough.
You’ve felt scared enough. It’s time for a change.

Things didn’t turn out the way you thought they would. Face it. There’s nothing you can do
about it at this point, so stop stressing over the things you can’t change. Yes, you probably
should’ve done some things differently  but you didn’t.

Nothing will change your situation more than changing your attitude. Perspective is everything.
Be thankful for your struggles, because there is a lesson to be a learned in the end of it.

Be strong and know that you are in God's hands. Everything will work out. It may not be today
or tomorrow, but eventually the pieces will fall into place and you will understand why the battle
was worth it.

You can conquer anything you put your mind to. So breathe, take a minute, reevaluate, and
grow.

Love,

Me
