Going Beyond with My Nuggets

April 24, 2017 at 12:00PM

Nuggets. "Nuggets" is the newly created category for my JasonTom.com Blog. I've been coming up with nuggets I want to publish and author here. What are nuggets? These will be nugget of thoughts, some call it nuggets of wisdom, and I didn't want to chance to chicken out in pondering and presenting these thoughts to the world without fear whether it has been presented or not to those of you who do browse, stumble upon and read my blog. So here goes some for right now and you can let me know what you think of these nuggets in the comments at the jump.

  • Life Nugget: There is that saying to live each day like its our last, because life is short? How about living life like its our first? Not to neglect our past experiences of before, but to use our past and our testimony to guide us to where we are headed with the grateful mentality that we have a fresh beginning and direction each day with experience. Let's acknowledge, rejoice, appreciate, and live for "Today!" To live renewed, refreshed, rejuvenated than to live a life of mediocrity. Let's live a life each day with the spirit of excellence and zeal. Why think of our life as short? Let's live each second, each minute of 60 seconds, each hour of 60 minutes, and each day of 24 hours of our life with zeal. There's a lot one can do with 60 seconds, because imagine even one second can impact our next 60 years of living and beyond. Our life is what we make of it and we can make life worthwhile to the overflowing. Let's be empowered and encouraged to live each day with zeal.

    I was just pondering on this nugget and wrote this prior to finding this TEDx Talk by Leanne Delle via Kristin Wong through her Lifehacker article (after I publish this you can also join me in reading Kristin Wong's post and watch Leanne Delle's TEDx Talk.. hey now!):
  • Math Nugget: I'm reading up on domain and range of a function. I miss and love this math stuff. Made mental note to self while reading on it that the domain is like an x-axis of integers which are positives and negatives or the horizontal plane with a front to back. Our future, present and past. Do we move forward with approach or do we rewind to learn from our life's experiences? The range is like the y-axis or the vertical of integers with it's ups and downs. Our lows and highs. Our peaks and valleys. We can climb or fly in the sky or dig deep for a treasure chest. Sounds applicable to life indeed. This is quite fascinating how a the break down of a domain and range of a function is philosophical to the functions of life to me mathematically and applicability speaking. Speaking of digging for treasure, I'm gonna dig up my old math notes.
  • Math Nugget: What do I love about a square root? Is that I can look at a problem, that might get our number up, squarely and work toward weeding it out with a solution that is nonnegative by finding the root (origin) cause of that issue (number). Then that problem's number, not ours, is up. BAM! For those of us who have done gardening, landscaping and yard work, we know first hand how we can't get rid of the weed (problem) by just cutting it by its surface.. we have to pull that weed from its very root. Pulling weed days for yard work applied me with that knowledge and understanding.
  • Life Nugget: I do believe that it's important we find enjoyment in whatever it is we do to our heart's content. This usually starts when we can enjoy ourselves... meaning to be kind to ourselves and even lighten up and laugh at ourselves when we make mistakes. To embrace our mistakes so that we are empowered and challenged in a good way to motivate us to better ourselves. That's the key of application to me on how to be kind to others, it's begins with how we think of and treat ourselves. If we're kind to ourselves, and think kindly of ourselves, that will trickle through how kind we can be to others. So do you! And allow others to do him and her. This is what bring us meaning and purpose for living. This propels us and compels us to value our time and effort into what it is we do.

Go Back

True words Jason. Very wise.

Thank you for sharing your nuggets. Very creative. I Like how you mention "pulling weeds by its roots rather then cutting it".

It was great to hear,good inspiration and nice to know from a different perspective of how we can look at life so thank you for the message

Great nuggets of wisdom! I especially love how you rephrased "Live each day like it's your last" to "Live each day like it's your first." Amen!

#latepost Post prayer night of prayer week with brothers Kyoshi, Nathan and John Lum at Word of Life.
Thank you Pastor Wally Matanza for pouring onto the men you've led and are mentoring, including me, today. Thank you for not ever giving up your faith in me and for exhortation. I pray for supernatural protection, provision and traveling mercies as you, Patti and Isaiah reach nations. I recall when I first arrived at Word of Life and how one of the leaders you've mentored consolidated me. I will not forget how Jarmal impacted my life and my early walk with God as a baby Christian. He eventually got married and moved to the mainland. Then 2016 was when God called me back to your team. And from 2016 through 2017 the Holy Spirit counseled me to remain faithful to the leadership of John Lum. The Holy Spirit then counseled me on what I needed to do when I acknowledged Him in all of my ways and Father God ordered my steps. Then I got called to step up this season as one of your 12 and one of Word of Life's 144 Life Group leaders, an irrevocable call. As a man of God, it is an honor to serve among our team of mighty men of valor Rick, Paul, Shawn, John, Jordan, Mario, Sonny, Laneke, Michael, Nathan, Jason C., and Louis. I miss you Darius! This year 2018 is a year of new beginnings. Thank you Jesus for your glory, kindness, goodness, presence, and power!
Congratulations to Maryknoll basketball point guard Rhianne. Awesome victory at the Maryknoll Senior Game with the Punahou Buff 'N Blue! Joined here with my Life Group brother Nathan.
Great game! Maryknoll Spartan Basketball Senior Game versus Punahou Buff 'N Blue. Congratulations to the Maryknoll Spartan Basketball Seniors! Watched this game with senior athletes Taylor, Ciera, Kayla, and company. Big up to my Life Group brother Nathan for the invite.
Spoke at Waipahu High School's Career Day! Thank you Marauders!
#latepost Happiest birthday celebration! Thank you Gale and Travis! Both of you have been important friends in my life. Travis, I can't wait 'til you come back from you trip so we can fellowship and build.
