~ Live Your Own Life

~ Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. – Steve Jobs

Live your own life, go for your dreams and remember that life is too short so please yourself first before other people. They don’t matter unless they are the ones who truly know and love you for who you are. πŸ™‚

Go confidently …

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined. – Henry David Thoreau

Take risks. Have more adventures. Get a life if you ain’t have one. We all rock! πŸ™‚

Cross and Burn

We cross our bridges when we come to them and burn them behind us, with nothing to show for our progress except a memory of the smell of smoke, and a presumption that once our eyes watered. – Tom Stoppard

There is always something to look forward to. Move on. πŸ™‚

Take Time

Sometimes we’re all too quick to count the days that we forget to make the days count. – Unknown

Take time to smell the roses no matter how busy life can get. πŸ™‚

True Friendship

One of the most beautiful qualities of true friendship is to understand and to be understood. – Lucius Annaeus Seneca

I am just thankful for the truest friends that I have no matter how few. πŸ™‚

~ School is not…

~ School is not real life. Real life is learning more about life when you are outside the school. – Bliss Steps, on comparing her life in school and in other places where people are required to have skills, esp. in the workplace

I Wish to Change

~ I wish to change the world but then I remember that I have to change myself first. Change the bad in me — the unstable mindset and attitude and other unlikely things that have a bad effect. Change is crucial if we want to expect a different outcome. Only then we could say that we somehow left our ‘comfort zones’ if we give in to change. – Bliss Steps

One of the Keys to Happiness

~ One of the keys to happiness is to stay away from assholes. – Bliss Steps

I have learned that if we want to be happy, we better choose the ones who we want to interact with. If that is not possible, better stay away and not let their negativity rub off the positivity running in our veins. In the end, it all boils down to our ‘choice.’

Can We Really Listen?

~ When people talk, listen completely. Most people never listen. – Ernest Hemingway

From my experience, I have observed that everyone can practically give an advice but not everyone could really listen. Many people like to talk endlessly about themselves like it was their big time career Β (I get it because that is human nature). If you like more talking, gossiping and blabbing then you must have a talk show. However, please make sure that you are really good so that the viewers will learn a lot about you. Thus, you make yourself productive. Useless talking is plain nonsense and a waste of time I guess.

If talking is more important, there should be two (2) mouths instead of one. Two ears mean that we should listen all the more, just like the other organs in pairs which do more functions — eyes, hands, feet, kidneys, etc. I do not despise the other single organs since they all have their respective functions that help other organs in the body to work well. Point is, there is no sense to talk more unless we have something good and important to say. Otherwise, let keep our mouths shut and do some favor to our vocal chords.

When I find myself doing a lot of talking, I pause and think that I should listen more. It is also when we listen that we get to learn more and we become better individuals. Let’s give our larynxes some loving it deserve. ❀ πŸ™‚

From Anais Nin

I agree with her. I may not be an authority in writing but I noticed that most of my posts revolve on how I live life and how other people live their lives. At times, I get ideas by seeing things through their own perspective. What I see is entirely different from what the other person sees. So, it is good that we also see through their eyes and feel through their hearts while we write.

My ideas usually come not at my desk writing but in the midst of living. – Anais NinΒ
