Life is full of lessons, if we only pay enough attention. Everything that happens to you, good or bad, every person you meet, is meant to teach you something! And only if you're willing to learn that you can grow. We don't grow with age, we grow with wisdom, below are some lessons I've learned this month: 1- I've learned that sometimes we need to go somewhere we love and forget about all the stress of our days, you don't need to wait for your next vacation, find an hour to go somewhere you love. I love to go to the sea sometimes before heading to college. It's always relaxing and something you can never get enough from! 2- I've learned that there are a lot of people out there to learn from. Not to compare yourself with them but to get inspired by them. Inspiration gives us a lot of hope, hope for a better world and a better life, when you see someone who made a reality from his dream, you feel hope, that as they made it, so you can make it too! 3- I've learned that when you can't do what you love, you need to do what you have to do, until you're able to do what you love. I hated school, but I had to study hard if I wanted the opportunity! 4- I've learned that nothing should be regretted. A mistake is a lesson learned, there are no regrets but lessons. And if you're doing something for the first time, don't expect perfection, rather expect mistakes and learning, and that's the fun of it! I don't care about the mistakes I make, I care about what I've learned and how I'll fix my mistakes. 5- I've learned that your dreams won't be achieved itself, you need to take action on it, and sometimes you need to make the sacrifice of what you've never thought you will. Now that action made me feel ashamed but you know what, there's no shame in taking actions on your dreams, the only shame I should feel is not doing so!
6- I've learned that you don't have to be strong all the time, allow yourself to feel afraid and weak, but never run away. Sometimes it doesn't matter how you feel, what you do is what matters!
7- I've learned that being hurt doesn't mean that you have the right to hurt people back. It's not about treating people the same way they treat you, it's about being yourself, always! If you're good then always do good.
8- I've learned that nothing is better than forgetting about the world, shutting it down and reading a good book, it's a great relief. Sometimes all we need is to escape, mentally not physically.
9- I've learned that when you see some people who are sick or really poor or don't have whatever you have and take for granted, you have to be grateful and get happy. No matter what life is throwing in front of you, no matter how tough it gets, how unbearable it can be sometimes, always be grateful for that some are having much more problems than you.
10- I've learned that when traveling and buying souvenirs, it's not about luxury, it's about having something that reminds you of everything that happened, the whole reason everyone got something at a cheap gift shop is to remember everything that happened and the things they've done while at that place.
11- I've learned that sometimes when you don't react to people rudeness, that's the best defending, sometimes words would only show how weak you are. 12- I've learned that excuses are illusions, if you want to be happy, the only thing that is holding you from being so is your negative thoughts in your head, you don't need to be rich, famous or pretty to be happy. You don't need a job or a relationship to be happy. You only get happy when you decide to be! Being satisfied is an inner peace that has nothing to do with acquiring. it's not about being happy and high all the time, it's about being able to cheer up each time you're feeling down and start all over again. 13- I've learned that sometimes when you do what you're afraid from, you'll never fear it again. That's the way to conquer it, running away is not a solution. It's not like you don't need to face it, every opportunity you get to face a struggle is an opportunity that you need. You can't run away each time, you've got to change, even it hurts, even if it's painful, you need to learn and to change, that's what pain is for, it isn't for making a hell of your life, it isn't from breaking you down, but rise you up above it all. 14- I've learned that "we should never stop being surprised at how awful we treat each other, because once we do, we'll stop caring." 15- I've learned that worrying does you nothing but stealing your moment, let it go, and what so ever is going to happen, let it be. You're strong enough to stand in front of what life would throw on your way.
