There’s this point in my life where I caught myself thinking of what makes me who I am right now. Then I looked back and reflect what happened moments… days… and years past that gone by… I come to realize, I get to remind myself of ‘things’ beyond the course of my journey to this life. The ‘things’ that I may say to myself called LEARNINGS… teachings which may represent as a guiding light to the path of who I want to become and perhaps the response to the statement “what makes me who I am".
Below are the list of my 20 something so-called ‘LEARNINGS’ explained to me by life hoping to be instill inside my over thinking mind:
1. make the most out of something.
2. mind your own business.
3. count your blessings.
4. life is a game, play it right.
5. live life to the fullest.
6. life is a battlefield.
7. there’s more to life than love.
8. patience is a virtue.
9. sapere aude (dare to know) – Latin phrase by Horace.
10. carpe diem (seize the day) – Latin phrase by Horace.
11. everything happens for a reason.
12. keep feet on the ground.
13. if you can’t say anything nice, you shouldn’t say anything at all.
14. don’t worry, be happy.
15. the only person you can please is yourself.
16. “Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear. The brave may not live forever, but the cautious do not live at all. From now on you’ll be traveling the road between who you think you are and who you can be. The key is to allow yourself to make the journey.” – Princess Diaries
17. take the risk, take the chance, make a change and breakaway.
18. try and try until you succeed.
19. less talk, less mistakes.
20 something… LEARNINGS with humor: Be kind to animals. The best revenge is to be happy. LEARNINGS that are moving: Aim high. Maximize your potentials. Think positive. Push yourself to the limits. LEARNINGS read from other people’s thoughts: Work hard and be nice to people (Kim). Less complains and be thankful (Dyan).
There they are… some widely known lessons learned… the LEARNINGS (wrote that word for the nth time. :D) I earned as of now. Too basic to understand, literally, though screwed up sometimes as part of the metamorphosis of change to grow ideally as a unique individual of my own. So help me God for this. 😀
Anyway… there’s more to come that might add the list let me see to it myself that if an improvement has been observe as I step into the light. Hope and pray no throwing of stuffs on my stage and stole my limelight if people can’t resist some violent reactions. 😀
P.S. Thanks very much guys for that fun, wacko and wonderful night. One moment that can’t be forgotten. Unplanned and coincidental may it seems, but there is a reason to celebrate and that is LIFE. I’LL RAISE MY GLASS TO YOU?! 😀
