Journals 2016: Embrace Life Fearlessly

BACK
Riding a bicycle in a rural village in South Viet Nam.

This has been the life motto I’ve lived by for years and with each passing year, I’ve come to learn more about myself and perhaps the meaning of life. Important lessons such as happiness is absolutely essential and the fact that time is precious are the philosophy that I carry with me. Whether or not the people or friends you meet are temporary or lifelong, they are still precious. Friends don’t have to stay in your life for a long time for them to be considered special. For the twenty years I’ve lived on this earth, I’ve met people who have added sunshine to my life when I was drowning in the dark. Oddly enough, they always seem to appear at the right place and time. This greatly supports my theory that things happen for a reason. We were meant to converge with others at some point in our life at precisely a specific time. Now that’s just a theory. I don’t know if it’s actually true but I think it’s pretty legit.

The reason why embracing life fearlessly is my motto sounds cliche but it’s the fact that  we are presented with one-of-a-kind chances that can carry us further in life. Think about it, the most awful thing you could ever experience near the end of your life is regrets. What’s worse is you can never go back and change what you know now. There’s no such thing as time travelling, at least not yet. So trust your instincts. Because at the end of the day or even looking farther ahead, at the end of your life, what do you want to remember? What you’ve done or what you could’ve done?

I haven’t met anyone who has not asked me why I do what I do. The FAQ’s are all the same. How is it that I’m braveadventurous, or even fearless? Well I’ll tell you. It’s simple. I’m just that type of person. I’m all those things because I’m curious. I’ve learn to  cultivate my curiosity by not considering the potential barriers that may stop me from doing the things I want to do. That in turn drives me to do things I would have never expected myself to do. It pushes me towards the direction of growth and learning. In summary, it’s an eat, pray, love kind of thing. You have to understand life is limitless. If you set limits for yourself, you will never reach your full potential. Try something new and take on that challenge. Don’t be afraid of failure because you learn valuable stuff from it. And that my friend is one of the keys towards success and happiness.

Because I’m so nice, and in case some of you didn’t feel to read the whole post entirely, I’ve condense it all into a list.
