10 Most Important Life Lessons I’ve Learned While In My 20s

blog

  1. Goals take time to complete. You’re not supposed to accomplish everything in an instant. What you do and what you want to do can fall into place when the timing is perfect. Time is your best asset.
  2. You don’t really know what you’re doing. Just have fun and never be afraid to fail. Life is about learning through experience. Fail often. Learn something new everyday. Be a good loser and then be a good winner. Then apply what your learned.
  3. Look people in the eye. It is essential to have the ability to give eye contact to someone as they speak. People nowadays tend to break their gaze during a conversation because of their phones. Giving someone a complete and undivided attention can make them feel important and respected.
  4. Sometimes it’s okay to give people second chances but not third. Sometimes second chances teach us that sometimes we can misjudge others. Our mistaken judgments occur when we are blinded by other’s flaws. However, a giving third chance for the same reason is often unacceptable. A person might have been complacent in doing something wrong because they have the idea of you forgiving them.
  5. Stay away from toxic people. Toxic people can sometimes sabotage your goal to self-improvement. Detach yourself with them and be with the people who values you as a person. It is a process but it can be done.
  6. Stay humble and kind. It is rewarding to stay grounded and surpassing someone’s ego. Although confidence is essential, humility and kindness is of the same importance. Remain true to your roots and of course, to yourself.
  7. Keep secrets. Life is more interesting when there’s mystery involved. You can’t just have an open book kind of life where anyone can know anything about you. Sometimes things must be kept to ourselves in order to have the sense of privacy and individuality.
  8. If you’re wrong, say sorry. Admitting that you committed a mistake is a kind of bravery that leads to self improvement. Apologizing validates the other person’s feelings and acknowledging the flaw you made or your role in a certain issue.
  9. Laugh. Aside from the medical benefits of laughing, one of the main reasons why I encourage people to laugh is for the simple reason of making them happy. Happiness suggests a deep importance to everyone. It helps us get by when things get rough. It is also a form of a universal communication that binds people everywhere.
  10. Always pray and be grateful.ย When things get rough, pray. When things are good, pray even more. We are blessed to witness everyday with open arms. It is essential that we express gratitude for all the answered prayers we received. It only takes few minutes of our time but the impact is huge and rewarding.

 

Until next time,

Managing Negative Feelings

e55591c689a81fabfaaf1e75e3205569.jpg

  • Figure outwhat’s causing you to feel down.
  • Talk to someone whom you think will understand.
  • Learn to accept and understand the feeling that you have. This feeling can’t be considered right or wrong. It’s simply how you feel right now.
  • As much as possible, express your feelings in a safe, non-threatening way.
  • Related to this, think of ways to manage them effectively so that you donโ€™t feel quite so bad, and so completely overwhelmed.
  • Avoid being with people who demand too much from you. Especially those who drain you emotionally. Being with them is not healthy.

 

Always shine,

Appreciating Body Image

  • Surround yourself with positive people.
  • Do FOCUS on the things you LIKE about YOURSELF.
  • Remind yourself that beauty is a state of mind, not a state of your body.
  • You don’t need validation from anyone else to feel good about yourself.
  • Appreciate all that your body can do.
  • Wear comfortable clothes that will make you feel good about your body.
  • Nobody is perfect. So embrace the fact that you are flawed and love the things that make you unique.
  • Understand that the things we see on print and television have been altered to perfection. Everything is NOT as it seems.
  • Shut down those voices in your head that tell you your body is not right or that you are a bad person.

 

Love always,

Believing in yourself

I canโ€™t imagine myself being so concerned about other peopleโ€™s opinions, that I would rather self sabotage and allow opportunities to slip through my fingers, just to avoid the negative things people might say.

If youโ€™re blessed with a opportunity, grab it with both hands! The same people who dislike you would embrace the same blessings that theyโ€™re ridiculing you for having.

Donโ€™t get distracted by those who have nothing going for them. Wish them peace and guidance and keep it moving my g. People are always going to talk.

Being a Go-Getter.

Go-getter? They’re known by many a monicker – the anti- wallflower, the social star, the life of the party — but the singular secret of confident individuals is their knock for setting themselves apart from the crowd.

Here are some life lessons to be the go-getting person you’ve always wanted to be.

  • SUNNY SIDE UP!

When dealing with people, try to stay on the positive side. No one likes a serial downer.

  • BATTLE THE CURRENT

Exercise thought before following fads. If you decide to go against trends, then, the more you’ll earn respect for sticking to your own opinions.

  • GO BEYOND THE OLD YOU

Constantly improve yourself. Always dare to go beyond. Step out of your comfort zone.

Here are some notes to remember when you want to join the Man club. Let us know how to be one of the boys and to start being one.

  • Develop awesome skills guys will totally appreciate.
  • Guys ideas may seem alien but give them a shot and you might have lots of fun.
  • Don’t break into song whenever you feel like it.
  • Fact: Boys are born with stomach-churning body odor triggered by sports, heat and nerves. Do your best to ignore it.
  • Resist the urge to organize their stuff, even if there’s plenty of time for you to clean up. Trust them. Their is an order in that chaos.
  • Learn to recognize a guy’s “top dog” status. Just play along up to a certain extent.
  • Guys can be guys when it comes to talking about their feelings.
  • Leave the Nancy Drew attitude to your girl squad. Guys have the intellectual capacity to answer only a handful of questions each day.
  • Respect the sanctity of “bro-hour”. When guys huddle and talk about sports, don’t take it personally.
  • If you’re taking a day or two away from the boys, drop them a line so they won’t wonder why you’re MIA.
