You know how others say that pride is bad or something that one must avoid. Well I say that it isn’t. For me, pride is something that empowers a person for something that he worked hard for, of course if it is vice versa, it is indeed bad. Everything when too much is bad. Pride is worth having when you know for yourself that you deserve it. Pride is similar to proud, when you are happy with something that is good.
Misery is such a huge word. It may come from pain, or anger or anxiety that you suffer from every day. But you know, every single of it is inevitable; you just cannot avoid it and be happy in an instant. We all have our own miseries and at the end of the day, you’ll figure out that these things don’t bring you down but define you more as a person, as a stronger one.
Mistakes are everywhere, mind I tell you. We all commit one. These are nature’s way of telling us how imperfect we are yet those imperfections are the reason why we are all uniquely and amazingly different from one another. We are perfectly imperfect, and what matters most is not how good we are doing but how great we accept what we cannot do.
We all have our comfort zones. One of the best ways to feel better is to get along with your friends. The laughter, joy and fun being together with them is just irreplaceable and you know, real friends are there when you need someone to talk to or someone you can open up with. Real friends will stay with you through good times and bad.
Wisdom for me is the ability to know beyond what you know. It is learning. It is simply cannot be learned from schools, books, or any other educational things because it is our experiences that teaches us wisdom. Knowing is good, but knowing more than what you know is always the best. Learn from your experiences and inspire others.
Chance is not literally chance that you give to others but more of the opportunities that awaits you. Each and every one of us has been on the situation where we are stuck in a middle of a decision both of which could change our lives. I say go for the one which you think your heart says, hear your thoughts and go for your instincts, because whatever your instincts may be, it will always be the right one. Don’t ever let these opportunities pass by again because you might be missing it for the rest of your life.
Change, the word has been one of the most commonly wide used terms for people who want new things in life. Change for the better as what they say. For me, change is definitely more than that. It is the key for personal growth, for personal development. You have to think change if you want it, and you have to believe in yourself if you want it to happen. This time, do not just change for the better, but rather change for happiness. Because happiness occurs when everything is at peace and order.
For my top three, the third spot goes to the word reputation. Reputation is more than just fame. It is the name that matters in it, but at the end of the day, there will always be a deeper meaning of what reputation really is. People are going to judge you, whether you do something good or not. They would throw criticisms over you. With a strong reputation, these negativities are nothing. Because you know for yourself that even though some people hate you, more and more trusts you and believes in you. This is what reputation means for me.
Love is something that goes beyond relationships. It was never about having a love life or having someone’s company. Those are just temporary. Love is something that is beyond them, something that you should have for yourself first. It undergoes your family. They should be your primary love because ever since you were young, they have been your number one supporters. Your passion, goals, dreams also go with love. If you love what you do, you’ll definitely be successful with it and nothing seems impossible, right? So the next time people ask you who do you love, think of no one else but yourself first.
And of course, the number one reason to live by is God. No, not because of religion or those beliefs that he should always be first above everything else, though it is correct as well. You give importance for the person who has always believed in your capability and had known you more than even your parents did. Thank Him for all the fun, laughter and joy that you receive from your loved ones, thank Him for every little blessing that he gives you, thank Him for all the opportunities that he made you encounter, and thank Him for every downfall and mistakes that you experience because you are now wiser. Thank Him for everything, He made you.
