These are true words of wisdom!
“Spend a little more time trying to make something of yourself and a little less time trying to impress people.” – The Breakfast Club
Being jealous of other people and trying to catch up with them, trying to be something that you are not, trying to stand out… that’s such a waste of time and effort. Now, trying to make something of yourself, something that makes yourself proud and happy, that’s something that I would go for.
I was wondering why things didn’t work out as planned. Why we ended up in a weird ass situation? I always thought that were both well rounded people, with grounded beliefs. That we can take each step and move forward as a team.
Apparently, we were both pulling in different directions. We both wanted something else at that time. While I wouldn’t want to go back to the way we were at the beginning of the year, I can honestly say it was a good lesson.
If someone would ask me what was the best vacation I’ve ever had, I would answer without hesitation “It was the 4 days vacation we had at the mountain side, 2 years ago“. We had a lot of great vacations, expensive ones (the one in Italy, for example). But, none has made me more happy than the 4 days trip to the mountain side.
It was the only time we were ourselves and we loved it.
So, it really doesn’t matter where you go, how much you pay for things. It matters that you enjoy it, that it helps you grow and that you can somehow make it work for you.
I’m going to work hard this year to bring myself back. I’m going to keep true to these words of wisdom.
