Life lessons I learned growing up (A Year Wiser?)
In my Twenty six years of existence, I’ve passed my quarter life crisis. I’ve been to places. I’ve been with different kinds of people. Yet I still have to learn lots of things about life.
- Not Everything is about you.
It may seem that whenever you do things, it is just for you. Ever wonder how people get affected by your decisions and doings?
- Time flies fast, so as your life.
One moment you’re still with your family. Then you wake up and boom, “I’m alone.”
- It’s normal to feel afraid of taking risk.
Who isn’t afraid to take risk? Even the toughest person feels frightened you know. You are just afraid because it will be out of your comfort zone. You wouldn’t know how it will turn out unless you try right.
- Making mistake is part of life. So as regrets.
Less expectations, less disappointments, less mistakes? I don’t think so. When you fail on something, that’s when you start learning. It is okay to regret that something. But by the end of the day, you learned something.
- Tough times come when you least expect it.
When everything seems right, something is wrong. Yes there will always be a ‘something’ that will rock your world. Maybe you can’t handle it now, but you’ll just laugh it off later.
- It’s not childish to cry and seek for help.
When everything is out of place, it is okay to cry in a corner or better with someone. It is alright to ask for help during those times. Just don’t forget to say thank you afterwards.
- Life has four seasons.
- Money can’t buy happiness, but sometimes it can.
No one can buy your happiness, but they can buy something that will lead to it right. Like a simple flower. Or maybe… a house. 😛
- It’s never too late to try new things.
Learning doesn’t stop after you finish Uni. You can still go out and try other things. Play another instrument. Paint. Drive a car, etc.
- Life is an endless adventure.
Whether you attained happiness, your life doesn’t stop there. Definitely you still seek for other things or other people that will make you happier and content in life.
