Life is bigger than all of us. Sometimes, it swallows us whole and puts us into the abyss of giving up. Nonetheless, if we won’t try to struggle, how would we know if life truly exists and that its fruits are sweeter with every hardship?
Though life gives us a hundred reason to give up, we should think of a million reason to hold on because life is all about staying strong when everything else goes wrong.
There is really no perfect job because all of it has flaws. You may not see it now but as you go on, you will realize how imperfect your job is (so as the other jobs you haven’t landed yet). That’s the whole point of working. Every job does not guarantee everything you want for a job. Yes, it could give you some benefits, fulfill your needs and make you happy for quite some time. Yet, if you lose interest or if you find another one which you think is better, you’ll begin to look for its every flaw, its every disadvantage. And then the rest of every days will just be like battling every monster of idleness and discontent. In the end, you cannot or will not give your 100% for your work only because of the 10% of feeling every imperfection you thought it has.
There is no perfect job but you can make it perfect by accepting and embracing its imperfections as if it’s meant to be flawed for you to figure it all out and give whatever you can, by any means you can.
And I say, this also applies to love and being in a relationship.
Hey, you. It’s only a few hours before we welcome the new year. Are you ready? I am, absolutely! But before I move forward to the coming year, I would like to look back on how 2016 had been for me and the best way to reminisce is to think back the lessons I’ve learned in the past year. Being said that, let me share with you what 2016 has taught me:
1. Everything is a matter of perfect timing, if things don’t go your way today, maybe tomorrow or the other day, it will.
2. We should not always let our mind rule over our heart coz sometimes, what we truly feel is what will make things right and not what others think is right. Similar to a Jack Johnson song, “You don’t always have to hold your head higher than your heart.”
3. Honesty is the lifeblood of every relationship.
These lessons guided me and made me who I am right now and for that, I will forever be grateful. This coming year, I hope the same for you. 🙂
Goodbye 2016! It was so nice meeting you and having you as a memorable part of my life. Nunca te Olvidare!
Our choices in life determine what we are going to be in the future. Sometimes, we have the wrong choices but knowing that everything falls into the right place and at the right time, know that whatever we choose, it will always lead us to where we ought to be. And whatever it is, it’s something that we definitely need to look forward to.
Having the chance to do what you love for a living is a great experience but learning to love what you do for a living is not bad either. Sometimes, being successful on our passions is not what define us. Rather, it’s how we still pursue them though the risk of failure is high and hope is beyond our reach.
If today wasn’t as good as yesterday,
maybe tomorrow it will be.
It’s not a matter of “having” all the good things
but “believing” that what will happen
are the good things.
