So I’ve been pretty reflective these past few days.. more so because I’m turning 30 this week and that is quite a milestone, in my head. It sort of marks the beginning of my mental and physical age aligning, so to speak. I’ve always been the sorted, responsible person in any group. Or so people say. I’m not so sure about this. My mind is always chaotic but I present a calm exterior and still there’s something to be said about relativity.
So I feel now I’m old enough to make life observations and comment on what “life has taught me” sort of stuff, having lived three decades now. So here are some of words of wisdom from a Grandma who is turning 30 this weeeek (!). Also, 60 going on 30 now. Lol .
📎 Life doesn’t follow any plans whatsoever. Like, seriously. You could double-check/triple-check or do a million checks and prepare for all outcomes but Life just suddenly feels like…”ooooh lets not do anything today.” Or like “Haha. Here’s a riddle no one can solve.” Or even “Boo. Lets just change all possible variables, like just for fun. And also, the constants, you know, juts for the thrill”. Aargh. Go figure out something else.
📎 No one is predictable. Not even your own mind. And especially not your body. Whenever you’re like oh this person or this person or this thing will behave a certain way, whoop, no it won’t. Go figure out something else.
📎 Happiness is a state of mind. You could have the worst day possible and still be happy or have the best dat possible and still be sad. It is literally all in your head and most of the time, you have no control over it.
📎Even the bad guys (atleast most of them) are not a hundred percent bad. And the good guys are not a hundred percent good. Everyone has good days and bad days atleast. So don’t judge.
📎 Everything happens and everyone does stuff for their own reasons. Everyone is basically trying to be happy. They have their own versions of happiness but that’s everyone’s ultimate goal. Their version might differ from yours but doesn’t make it less or more important.
📎It is much easier to hurt someone than to make someone happy. Even by your words. Actually, especially by your words. Actions have a more lasting and deeper effect though.
📎There should only be one angry person in a room at a time. As soon as the second person starts to lose their mind, the craziness begins. This is the most difficult one, I feel.
And many such things. I feel like such an Aunty, trying to preach right now. 🤷 Stopping now, see you later!
