Because right now, at this very moment, I am as wise as I’ve ever been and as wise as I ever will be. So why not just go ahead and call myself that! 😀
I’m 27 right now, and as odd as it sounds to say it out loud, I feel much older than that. The past few years of my life has been a whirlwind, both personally and professionally. So much has happened, so much has changed. I grew up fast. Or in some cases, I was forced to grow up and act like a mature adult.
Life does that to you.
But in retrospect, when I take a good look at my 27 years of living, I feel nothing but perpetual gratitude for the life that I have and all that I’ve learned so far. And since I am a little more than a quarter of a century old, I believe that entitles me to momentarily and figuratively climb atop something you can hear me from and give you advice. I am also forcing this information on you because I just wrote a sentence that rightfully included the word “century”. 😀
I know you must have read a million posts similar to this, and I too have. But that’s exactly what inspired me to write this post in the first place. These are the greatest epiphanies I have had and the greatest lessons I have learnt in 27 years of this goofy, incredible thing we call life.
There’ll always be that one person who’ll hate your guts. Don’t waste your time trying.
Music is the best medicine to everything.
Do not wear lip gloss on a windy day with your hair down.
But I don’t think so. I feel that I learnt it at a time when I could afford to buy my own car, and I probably might not have driven as much as I do now if I had learnt it earlier.
It’s for the best. You cannot always control everything.
Mine have always been shockingly right.
(Yes mom, you heard me!)
Your parents are who they are for a reason and you actually realize over time that they are the coolest people ever!
I do this all the time, and it never ends well. It is pointless. Nothing can change the past, and dwelling on it will only drive you crazy. Reminisce about the good times, yes, but realize that there will be more good times ahead (may be even better times. Who knows!).
Someday you’ll be really glad that you did.
I have a terrible habit of deleting photos in which I ‘apparently’ don’t look good. I have regretted it over the years. Good or bad, photos are treasured memories. Save them. You’ll at least have something to laugh over a couple of years later.
Last, but definitely not the least…
