We, millennials, always rush things. When we were in school, we wanted to graduate soon so we can earn money from our own sweat and blood. And if we started to work, we will find ourselves stuck on a crossroad and terrified what will tomorrow brings. We can’t wait to have our own “Bae” and assume that they’re the one and you can’t imagine life without them. And if we have found the right one, you can’t wait to walk down the aisle to tie the knot. Everything is fast phased and we tend to worry too much that we might get left behind. Well, that’s the main problem of millennials.We always wanted to get what we want on just a snap and we know that it’s rarely impossible unless we were born rich. But it’s not always like that.
Remember, before getting things that we really want, we must first work hard for it. Whether it’s a career or material things. There is no short cut for that but it’s totally worth it.
Don’t overthink and learn to take things slowly but first always make sure you know your destination. Be patient on things because everything has its own right timing. Tolerate the hardest situation because it will make you stronger. Stand for it and without you noticing it you already conquered the one you thought you can’t. If you still don’t know what you are going thru, it’s totally fine. Keep on moving and along the way, you will able to find out where you really belong. You have your own spot light and all you have to do is wait for it while you grind. If you hate your job, learn to love it. And if you still can’t, leave. Look for another one that might help you to find your passion.
Don’t mind those who are ahead of you. They also went into all the confusions and frustrations you are going through right now. We have different paths to take and it’s not all the same, you have to remember that. Set your own goals and do not limit yourself. Go further and seek more knowledge. Look at them as your inspiration in life as you are aspiring your own personal goals. Learnings never stop at school, it goes on and on. It might take long to reach the peak of your career, but as I said earlier it will always be worth it.
Fall in love as many times as you wish and enjoy the blissfulness it brings. Feel the pain of having a broken heart, it only shows that you’ve been in love and you took a risk. As Alfred Lord Tennyson said in his poem, “Tis better to have loved and lost Than never to have loved at all.”
Take it slow and try to observe your surroundings. Spend more time with your family. Have quality time with your friends. Devote yourself serving the Lord. Take it easy and you’ll thank yourself in the future for not pushing your own self too much. And that’s how you will enjoy life.
