These are the words from my teacher in High School that I surely will not forget. She said, “Every time you are in your low moments of your life, there’s no point in wondering or dwelling on it too much. It will only make you feel depressed. What I advise you to say to yourself is – This Too Shall Pass. Breathe in, relax, feel the pain, cry it out if you need to, release… Learn, then move on.”
Her words truly has wisdom. For many times this has saved me. Not just from getting too nervous every examination but more now that I am in my adult age. It has saved me from depression and from my pessimistic tendencies. In summary, her words made me realise that “Everything in life is temporary!” Success is never forever, so stay humble. Failures are never for long either, so learn to dance in the rain! Go with the flow.
That is why time is the most important value in the world. What you do with your time is what you do with your life. We can never turn back time around, but we can always spend it in ways that bring forth happiness, good vibes and energy to share with the people that matters to us.
However, what can we share if we are an empty cup ourselves? Thus, similarly over time, I also realised the importance of being alone. Often times, this gives me the serenity to reflect on many things. The introvert that I am, it is having those serene moments actually fuel me up to reaching my goals and fine tuning my visions. As I grew older, I learned that being alone doesn’t mean being lonely. As a matter of fact, MakeItUltra has an excellent post on – How to Have a Healthy Alone Time. He has written 5 actionable steps to spending quiet moments effectively. Believe me, spending time alone can be rewarding!
In closing, while it is a fact to keep in mind that life is short, I wish that you’re enjoying the journey of your everyday life! Make the most of it both in your alone time and with the few people who truly matters.
