Assuming I could live till the marvellous age of 75,
A third of my life has gone passed by and
I have two third left before turning into ashes.
Disclaimer: This post is 4 months overdue.
01 Nothing is permanent
Your hair, your skin, your best friend, your anything and everything will be different at every point in life. People come and go. Don't frown over the littlest things and don't take too much pride over success. Even tattoo fades.
02 There is no 'time-limit' for anything
Take your time. Go and grow at your own pace.
"Find a boyfriend at 18, get married at 25 and have 2 children by 28."
"Graduate from university at 22, find a job then get promoted every year and be a manager by 30." If you're a 90s child like me, you'll understand. I'm single at 25 and still learning how to fry an egg.
03 Set your eyes on the prize
"You will never reach your destination if you stop and throw stones at every dog that barks"
I've only started focusing on my vision 3 years ago. My life and career has grown towards the better and is now in a different paradigm. I'd tell my younger self that losers focus on winners and winners focus on winning.
04 Create inner peace
Your peace is more important than driving yourself crazy trying to understand why something happened the way it did. Let it go. Most of you who know me in person would know that my life is a plateful. What you see is just a factor of the whole picture as things are way more challenging.
Growing up with signs of anxiety, feeling anxious was always mistaken as feeling nervous therefore nothing was done to help myself. As of now, I'm constantly making effort to inject 'peace' both internally & externally because a calm & clear set of mind changes the way we perceive life.
05 Be like a duck
Remain calm on the surface. Paddle like crazy underneath. Always.
Life is a learning process on it's own. Wherever you are in life, I hope you are having fun :)
