Life Lessons

Hi! It's been a looooong... long time since the last time I posted that not-even-important update here lol.

Well, to answer the question of most of you guys, the reason of my hiatus was simply that I didn't have the mood to write. Of course the idea to write something interesting always come once in a while, when I was in walking to the grocery store, when I was having interview(s), when I was at the lake, etc etc but alas, once I faced Minerva, I was drowned with Restaurant City, Farm Town, Barn Buddy, Happy Farm, and the newest is Farm Ville lol xD

And moreover the rest of the time when I'm not playing that games (and having life outside, doing grocery is life), I was drowned with job applications and my current course :)

So, what makes me break my curse? It's just that I got this simple "45 life lessons that you don't learn on school" and want to post it here as my archive.

My favorite is:
"All is good in time. If you don't get it now, either you don't need it now or you don't need it at all."



So here's the list:
1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.
2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.
3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.
4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and parents will. Stay in touch.
5. Pay off your credit cards every month.
6. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.
7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.
8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it.
9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.
10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.
11. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.
12. It's OK to let your children see you cry.
13. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it.
15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry; God never blinks.
16. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind..
17. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.
18. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger.
19. It's never too late to have a happy childhood. But the second one is up to you and no one else.
20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer.
21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special.
22. Over prepare, then go with the flow.
23. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple.
24. The most important sex organ is the brain.
25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you.
26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words ''In five years, will this matter?".
27. Always choose life.
28. Forgive everyone everything.
29. What other people think of you is none of your business.
30. Time heals almost everything. Give time, time.
31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
32. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
33. Believe in miracles.
34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn't do.
35. Don't audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.
36. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young.
37. Your children get only one childhood.
38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.
39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.
40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd grab ours back.
41. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.
42. The best is yet to come.
43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
44. Yield.
45. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift.

Wait! My fave quote isn't in the list! Well that's probably because I made that quote myself xD

Anyway, I have some interesting things to write in mind, but I'll write that in other posts. Hopefully. I'm not promising. Just cross the fingers :D
