Don’t hustle yourself into an early grave. Work hard, but rest harder. Take time to laugh with friends and family. Express gratitude for the things you have in this moment while you work to achieve more.
I saw a post today that said, “When you finally learn your place in peoples lives, your feelings won’t get hurt. And loyalty doesn’t mean accepting unlimited amounts of inconsistency & pain from others”.
Whether it’s friends, family or whoever. I swear that’s the truth and one of the most important life lessons you’ll learn.
Life doesn’t end at 25. Life doesn’t end at 30 or 40 either. Life doesn’t end at 65. It doesn’t matter how old you are. It doesn’t matter when you decide to get your high school degree or start a family. It doesn’t matter when you decide to go run a marathon or go travel the world. Life is not made up by numbers, age is just a number, and your age is not all that you are. You got time. Life doesn’t end until it ends.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. I am a big fan of entire Marvel Cinematic Universe. MCU phase-4 is amazing so far & Next phase-5 looks amazing. I had to share it.)
More than anything I really believe we are put here on this earth to enjoy the time we have. Life is precious so don’t get hung up or bent out of shape over the small stuff. Enjoy the present moment and have fun, whatever that means to you.
Enjoy free time with family and friends. Enjoy a laugh and make some memories. Enjoy learning & making people feel the goodness of life. Life is fun, let it be.
(This instagram post got nothing to do with the post above. Shared it because i liked it. I am not too much into shopping. Fast fashion brands & discounts in malls/online stores never excite me to purchase anything. I buy something when i am very specific about what i want. Most clothes/sneakers i wear are usually gifted by friends/brands during my birthday/thanksgiving/christmas or any random Monday. But i am a big sucker for watches. Now a days i prefer a good automatic or chronograph watch, but sometimes i still wear G-Shock watches from my high school/engineering college days.)
When you learn how to communicate with others there’s no problem you can’t solve. It doesn’t mean you’ll always agree with other people and it certainly doesn’t mean that they will agree with you. But none of that matters if you possess the maturity and the patience to work through your differences. Think about how much more peace there would be on this planet if people would just talk through a problem instead of using violence & retaliation.
Do you have a friend or family member you have a really hard time getting through to? Maybe now is the time to try again. It never hurts to try.
You have to learn how to communicate if you want to get along in this world.
Everything I have gone through I could not have done without the love, faith, and support of my family. Even though i stay away from home since i was 16, just being around them once in a year or two brings me joy and I forget about any problem or fear I have. They accept me with all of my flaws. And I accept them as well, no matter what.
Soak up the love of your family today & everyday. Be grateful for the goodness you receive. Love them for everything they are and aren’t. Family gives us strength and builds our character. (Not my words.)
