Live young not reckless.
Take in the experience then use your best judgement.
Don’t let depressing things depress you.
Trust in God and if it’s mean’t to be it will.
We only live once.
“You think you die alone, but that’s not true. Nobody is alone in this world. We have to coexist and take care of each other. That’s how I feel.”
There’s always going to be someone better. There’s always gonna be somebody prettier, smarter, more outgoing, nice, confident, or ultimately more skilled at something than you. There’s almost 7 billion people on this Earth so what’s the point in shooting down yourself when there’s that many beings here. Why compare? Stop it. Just stop it.
Please just try your best to be who you want yourself to be. Sure, take others as an example or look up to someone but don’t be jealous of them. You are you and they are them. Be who you want to be instead of comparing yourself to others because it’s painful to constantly think about how you can never measure up, you’ll only drown yourself in your own demise. People are mean’t to be flawed, that’s when we know that we are human. We are always good enough for someone. Stop comparing yourself to others.
I am no longer going to surround myself with negative, toxic and evidently insecure individuals because life is just too short for that. You could say friends can be contagious and it’s true.
When I was 17, I read a quote that went something like: “If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you’ll most certainly be right.” It made an impression on me, and since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: “If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?” And whenever the answer has been “No” for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.
Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure — these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.
One of reasons I choose to be single + other random thoughts.
I’m not miserable, I am actually genuinely content even knowing the fact that I’ve never had a relationship with anybody before. Just cause I’ve never been in a relationship before doesn’t mean I don’t know a thing or two about how it works. As I observe from the sidelines..my faith in this ‘genuine love’ is wearing thin. I’m not going to go into detail on how I feel like relationships only cause unnecessary drama or how I just haven’t met the right person in my life yet. It’s just..I’ve given up on seeing the good in people when it comes to dating and relationships. Guys can’t seem to get their mind off their sexual desires and act stupid, cheat, and cause heartache. Don’t get me wrong, girls can do the exact same things and cause just as much damage but since guys are known to be more “visual creatures” than us gals, it’s harder for them to keep their hands to themselves sometimes. It takes a lot of will power and being fully aware of situation, yes.
It just seems through my personal experience as I observe from the sidelines that one person within a relationship is always going to end up cheating or falling for somebody else even when they have their dear person smack right in front of them. If you are happy with their partner then there shouldn’t be a reason for somebody to cheat right?
Anyways, maybe I’m just not interested in the dating scene. I like things to happen naturally and just go with it instead of forcing it upon myself. At this point in my life I’m not in much of a hurry, I mean it would be really nice to have a companion by my side, someone to hang with all the time, cuddle with, feel happy around but not now. If it comes it comes..
honestly when it does, I hope I do the right thing and will know what to do.
I always wonder why divorce rates are so high. I can totally understand why so many more people are choosing to live single and never choose to get married or have kids. The 21st century is really different. People are moving with the wind, we are losing so much time to our jobs, school, corporations and stress that we lose insight on the beauty of living. I just don’t understand it anymore..
Is our world doomed to the consumption of the world itself?
P.S: I’m sorry if this entry is jumbled up with disorganized thinking. If you don’t understand a thing I said just forget I even mentioned it. This is just for me.
“In the end..all we really have are the memories.”
People come and go. Best friends become complete strangers. Lovers change.
We may no longer talk to each other anymore, we may have grown out of ourselves to become a totally different person which is why we are strangers now but you know what? I don’t regret meeting you, I don’t regret meeting anyone regardless of how wrong they are for me. It was a blessing and I’ve learned so much from you so I am not going to curse you to Hell. Instead I am going to say “thank you, thank you for everything.”
I wish you the best and I am sorry for whatever pain I may have caused you.
Some people stay while others go. Some stay forever depending on how your story goes.
Just know that it goes on so don’t ever stop living.
All these great minds..what do they all have in common? I honestly think it’s the fact that they all love what they are doing. Everyone has a passion whether it’s hidden beneath the surface or already out in the open. Embrace it. Love it. Live it.
I want to live like everyday is the best day of my life and wake up smiling. How Steve Jobs lived is how I want to live, to not be afraid of pursuing dreams and to take something considered to be “frightening” like death and turn it into something beautiful. Death is amoung all of us and whatever is holding us back from living our dreams can never beat the idea that one day, just one day, the clock will stop ticking for someone. You.
I mean who doesn’t want to live everyday happy? Who doesn’t want to wake up from deep slumber, jumping out of bed being excited for the day? Who doesn’t…
Such a simple concept to live by really: “doing more of what you love” but for some reason it’s one of the hardest things to do for me personally. I keep making excuses for myself and should stop being who I’m not and start living for what I am or will become.
Whatever is stopping us, don’t let it. Human beings can accomplish anything so why must we try so hard to limit ourselves?
