It certainly turned out different than what I expected when I was younger, but hey, I’m not complaining.
After all, life is unpredictable and you never know how it will flow. I never actually imagined it, how it will be. I always knew the Universe doesn’t care about our plans, us humans, small, tiny things. We have so many dreams and desires but it’s not the Universe’s job to accomplish them. It’s our only job.
No doubt, I do feel like it is an important year in my life where I have a clearer vision of how I want my life to be from now on, much more than I used to have before in my younger years. It is true indeed that saying about how the passing years give you more wisdom.
I’ve learned a few things in these years. Most of them by trial and error, rise and fall. There is no better teacher than your own mistakes. I’m proud of the battles I’ve won with myself and of the person I’m becoming. Working every day to get better, to be better, to learn more, to hate less, to get rid of my flows, to attenuate them.
Nobody’s life is picture perfect, even if there are perfect pictures trying to show you “how it is”. There’s no such thing. We are all struggling and we’re all trying to figure it out, each one in different ways.
We are all trying to make it, to find the “path”, to reach the way towards happiness. Where is it? Where is this thing that we are all chasing, that seems to run away from us every time we catch a glimpse of it? Well…that’s something I now know. Happiness is nowhere and everywhere. It isn’t a thing, a place, an object, a person. It’s none of those things. It is you, it’s inside of you. It’s what you can create. It’s in the way you see things, the way you see life, people, nature; the way you choose to look at it.
If you can’t find happiness in the details, in the small events of your life, in a walk outside, in cup of coffee, in feeling the sunshine on your face, in seeing a friend…you are not going to find it anywhere.
You can’t control everything. You see, it’s not entirely up to us the outcome of the situations we are in. To be honest, we don’t have control on almost anything in our lives, or other people’s lives, for that matter.
Don’t get frustrated when things don’t turn out to be what you want them to be, because we are pretty much passengers filled with dreams and hope. Hope is what keeps us floating, going, getting up each and every time after we get crushed to the ground. Hope is one of the most powerful feelings we are blessed with. If we lose that, we lose the chances for a new beginning, for a new life.
The only treasure you’ll always have is your mind and your kindness. No other riches will ever compare, or buy. You’re a special human being, never forget that. Be proud of who you are.
I’ve made a brief list the lessons I’ve learned until now on my latest video. ❤
