Hmm.. okay.. at least I’ve tried to compile some ways of what I’ve done, and I found six of them. LOL.
People must be afraid of growing old (so am I), although they don’t really think about it. The more you become old, the more weakness you will have. Sometimes when I have my precious time, I want to spend it as best as I can, doing a lot of things that I want to. But in fact, it’s hard to convert my expectation into reality. So, these main points might could be lightened up your life (too).
A “me time” day, for 24 hours.
When I take (or get) my day off(s), I always try to have my personal time by doing anything I want. Lay on bed entire day, read books, watch movies or dramas, play any games, do silly conversation for hours (from “why the sky is blue” question to unimportant pick up lines) to my partner, or sit in front of my laptop to fulfill my curiosity by browsing whatever comes from my mind, shopping or window shopping, etc. Eng, I usually skip the latter, by the way.
That’s what I called a “me time” day. Twenty four hours, without disruption.
Avoiding bad relationship
Communication is the most dangerous part (ever) in human relationship. Once someone ruin my day by how the way they talk, aah.. totally exhausting! So, I try to built a good communication, start by myself first. Speak mannerly, act respectfully, keep being humble in every situation to people. But if they (still) don’t like me, hmm.. well, not everyone has a good taste. I can’t force them to do so, can I?
Keep going to make your life better. That’s the key.
Listen to parents
Perhaps I don’t really need their advice while I was still living with parents, but once I live independently and parents do not live beside, it always be like: “Dad, you were right” or “Mom, thanks for everything, I miss you” words will appear on my thought. Well, don’t ever underestimate your parents’ advice, because even time changes, family culture still stick with it. Of course it will have an impact on life.
Working time management
My adulthood indeed will be more often spent on the working desk. To make it more balanced, I won’t forget to spend time with dearest people. Remember: you weren’t born at your office, fellas.
Face the risks!
By every decision I choose, I definitely should take risk on it. For tiny example, if you dare to fall in love, you should be ready facing a broken heart, although that doesn’t become your purpose at the beginning.
In a stuck moment, it’s hard to see positive forces when obstacles are blaring and fears are looming. This is a good time to be grateful. Not grateful for what has stuck, but appreciating what doesn’t. Gratitude helps me see our situation in a way that can lessen panic, and could open up our thinking to new solutions.
I never let myself do pointless things because it will lead to regret. Be grateful as much as possible will make my mind rejuvenate. Trust me, gratitude won’t give you any loss. Thus, you can ‘growing old maturely’ because of your experiences that you have passed without any regret.
Thank you for reading, fellas!
Lots of love,
