Next year, I will become 30. To any 20s, this decade of 20s-going-to-30 is kind of a big short. When I was 20, I didn’t know who I would become at the age of 30. How would I look? Where would I live? What would I do for living? And so on and so forth. Actually, I didn’t give a fuck to any of them. Those questions did come to my mind, but they came and went away like the wind. At early 20s, I just thought I still had a lot of time. Just do it, try and fail. I did have a list of 30 things to do before 30 but then everything became a chaos.
I could not make a decision anymore. Left or right, true or false became so tough for me to decide. Even Neo, my idol in the movie named Matrix. At first, I thought him the ONE, but then I read somewhere that he actually is a virus, Mr. Smith is the ONE instead. And I can NOT reject that idea because I know it is true somehow.
The only one that help me to escape this abyss of chaos is Zen, the one from Japan, Tibet and every pages of the Books-have-a-soul. And here are some of the quotes that I love most.
Silence isn’t empty. It’s full of answers.
Life isn’t always fair.
Some people are born into better environments. Some people have better genetics. Some are in the right place at the right time. If you’re trying to change your life, all of this is irrelevant. All that matters is that you accept where you are, figure out where you want to be and then do what you can, today and everyday, to hold your head high and keep moving forward. – Lori Deschene.
Note to self:
Keep going. You’re doing great. You might not be where you want to be yet, but that’s okay. Just take it one step at a time and keep believing in yourself. And remember: No matter what happens you can still enjoy your life and be happy. – Lori Deschene.
Live simply. Dream big. Be grateful. Give love. Laugh lots. – Paulo Coelho.
