May Roundup

ROADTRIP

May has been fun…I guess, it went by in a bit of a blur but was slow too, if that even makes sense?

I didn’t take many pictures this month but here are the very few that I did.

Friends Are The Family We Choose

 

So…Story Time!

Sometimes arguments turn out to be petty and leave behind memories (1)

Back in 6th grade, I met my best friend, she was new to the school and I didn’t have any best friends back then. We soon were made bench partners, sounds fun, doesn’t it? Well, the first day we realized we had the same looking ink pens, the same colour, same brand, twinning yea 😂

Two weeks in and we got into an argument about these pens. I thought our pens had been exchanged and she claimed that it wasn’t the case. I know it sounds really petty but for our 12-year-old selves back then, this was a pretty serious matter and we stopped talking to each other for quite a few days.

That time it was a huge deal for us and now, five years later we couldn’t stop laughing when we remembered this. We both don’t remember where those pens are, what happened to them or when we saw/used them last or even what they used to look like. The same pen because of which we didn’t talk to each other and now, it’s long forgotten and we still remain best friends even after not having seen each other in months.

The reason I’m sharing this is that when we remembered all this a few days ago, I realised how some things that bother and matter to you a lot right now, they might not matter to you at all after some time. This argument was too small and we were too young, we made up soon.

 At a point in time, something might have been very much important to you but soon it might not even matter to you, but it can cause some damage to you’re friendship by the time you realize this.

Arguments and misunderstandings happen to everyone, but if you stay and work them out, you might later realize that you now have a memory that you can always remember and it’ll make you laugh when you realise just how petty and stupid it was like we do now.

Some people let their ego get in between and don’t talk to each other, it might be something a bit bigger than this, an argument or a misunderstanding but the best thing to do is talk it out with each other. Its outcome might even surprise you.

Friendship is far more precious to let it end over petty things, even if you don’t think it’s petty now, you might later realize just how stupid it was. So always remember,

friends are family that we get to choose.

And any relation is far too precious to let your ego get in between.

Have you ever found yourself in a situation like this when you later understood how stupid an argument was? What are your thoughts on this topic? Let me know!

Until next time,

Progress- Forward And Backward

Hey there! Recently I’ve been watching a lot of Ted Talks to get me inspired. The year so far has been a huge roller coaster for me, last year I took a break from blogging, I shut down my old blog and started a new one here on WordPress.

My goals, dreams and aspirations, I know have changed since last year and it felt like I was back to square one, not just with my blog but with a few other things that I thought I had finally figured out, and I didn’t particularly like it. The Ted Talks and a book that I have started reading sure have helped a lot to get inspired and to understand that it’s okay to take a break and that it’s okay to go back and start again.

Progress is “forward or onward movement towards a destination.”

We’ve always been taught that progress is always upwards or forward, if you’re going back, then that’s not progress. But it’s only recently that I’ve realized that’s not true. Sometimes going back, starting again, that’s progress too.

Sometimes you have to go back, you have to start again, not because you hit a dead end, but because that’s what’s needed to be done. Sometimes going back, starting again is what leads you towards progress.

ROADTRIP

Because progress isn’t just about moving forward, it’s about moving in the right direction, moving in the direction that leads you to your destination and that direction doesn’t always have to be forward. 5

As important as it is to do things at the right time, it’s also important to take things slow when needed. Rushing into things won’t help, yes there will be times when you’ll have to make quick decisions, but the process of getting to your destination can be slow and that’s completely fine. Everyone has their own time zone and if you own up to your decisions, then the decision is never wrong.
So take all the time you need to implement, go back and start again, but own up to your decisions and don’t rush things. Just make sure you’re going in the right direction, then let it be forward or backward.4

Have you ever felt like starting again or going back has actually helped you progress?

Until next time,
Ciao! Ciao!

 

Brave

Brave

Breave is  “ready to face and endure danger or pain; showing courage.”

Brave is a word that’s misunderstood quite a lot nowadays. Some consider breaking rules, doing something reckless just to complete some dare, hurting others feelings and some more stupid things like this as being brave, but that’s not what brave means.

fearless

Being fearless isn’t brave. I doubt its even possible to be fearless.
Everyone fears something, fear is a feeling, an emotion. It’s natural. Everyone fears something different, it’s a part of who we are and there’s no shame in it. No one should ever have to face embarrassment for admitting their fears, no matter how small they seem to be and who the person is, emotions have no boundaries, we all need to understand that. brave3

Showing courage, facing your fears, for yourself or for others, that’s what brave really means. The only thing you need, to be brave is the strength to face your fears.
Teasing someone else for their fears does not make us brave. Everything you want is on the other side of fear
Bravery is a quality that everyone appreciates because it’s not easy to face your fears. There are so many people in the world and everyone has different opinions and experiences that affect their thinking and what they fear.
Yes, there are a few things like heights and darkness that many people fear, but there are many who don’t, and that’s why its not easy to determine if a person’s brave or not.

Until next time,
Ciao! Ciao!

Life Is Too Short

life-is-too-short.png

Life is too short and time doesn’t wait for anyone
Once the moment is gone, it’s gone forever

Don’t let the fear of heights stop you from climbing mountains
Because if you don’t, someone else will
And the place where you should be
Will be taken by someone else

Don’t let anyone control you,
Don’t let anyone tell you what to do
You are who you are and stay that way
Because that’s what makes you different from them

People come and go
no one stay’s forever with us other than the memories
But don’t let the fear of losing someone keep you from making new friends

Some say “Life is all about the second chance” but that’s not how it goes,
Not being scared of anything doesn’t mean you have to be carefree

Always think before you talk and see what your steeping on
Don’t regret what you did before,
Whatever happened is now the past, just move on
Because life is too short and time doesn’t wait for anyone

I’m sure there are many different opinions on this and I would love to hear them!
Also, another small poem, contradicting this, is coming soon so be on the lookout
Until next time,
