I'm not a big fan of even numbers.. BUT.. And in the spirit of attracting all that is positive.. I'm going to squeeze my eyes shut and wish that its going to be a wonderful year.
With age, comes wisdom ;) or so they say!
In my life (so far):
I have learnt that u get to pick once, so pick wisely.
I have learnt that friends come and go, but blood is the eternal tie.
I have learnt that even blood ties can be severed if you get hurt over and over again.
I have learnt that no matter how well rounded u are, given the right amount of ongoing stress.. You can do the unthinkable.
I have learnt that in order to go on, we sometimes have to make up excuses.. For ourselves, and for those we care about.
I have learnt (the hard way) that anything and everything u did would come back to bite u in the tush, sooner or later.
I have learnt that men are much easier to live with, work with, or have a relationship with.. than women..
I have learnt that the only constant thing is change, that it will happen weather u like it or not.
I have learnt that your mom does know better, no matter how absurd it sounds at the time.
I have learnt that there is no such thing as "its not you, its me", that if ur really into a person u would get over whatever it is that's in "you".
I have learnt (have always known) that if ur happy, everyone around u will be.. Its not a secret anymore.
I have learnt that while its important to forgive, its much more important not to forget.
I have learnt that life is a gamble, and if u don't have what it takes to put urself out there, ur just a sad excuse of a human being.
I have also learnt that life is too short to go easy on the little stuff, cuz every little bit matters.
I have learnt that once u stop learning (and I did for some time) u fall into this vicious cycle of boredom and apathy.
I have learnt that no matter how bad ur day is going, a heart felt compliment or a thankful smile can turn it around in a second.
I have learnt that everything is subjective, and that there are at least two sides to every argument.
I have learnt that for u to have a clear view, u have to forget the box, and what's outside it, instead zoom out and think panoramically.
I have learnt that by expecting the unexpected u can miss the expected.
I have learnt that controlling ur impulses is the hardest thing I have to live with.
I have learnt that when two people meet, and connect.. They both carry a little bit of each other when they leave.
I have learnt that it takes 6 months to know what a person is really made off, a cut-off point that never fails.
I have learnt that in marriage, the first year is the hardest, and married life takes A LOT of effort in order to work.
I have learnt that most problems could be resolved by good, honest communication.
I have learnt that people will continue to disappoint me, its just the way life goes.
I have learnt that I still want to learn, that there is more in life out there for me to explore (and conquer? XD) and that nothing can stand in my way.
- to life long learning a la experience xx
