Life changes. You lose love. You lose friends. You lose pieces of yourself that you never imagined would be gone. And then, without you even realizing it, these pieces come back. Love blooms inside you with lots of respect. Better friends come along. And a stronger, wiser you is staring back in the mirror. No matter how bad it gets, better days are always waiting, hoping you’ll make it there to accept the smiles and joy that they’re offering.
Someone once told me to always live for the little things in life. Live for 5am sunrises and 5pm sunsets where you’ll see colours in the sky that don’t usually belong. Live for road trips and bike rides with music in your ears and the wind in your hair. Live for days when you’re surrounded by your favourite people who make you realise that the world is not a cold, harsh place. Live for the little things because they will make you realise that this is what life is about, this is what it means to be alive. LIFE IS ALL ABOUT A CONSISTENT FLOW OF POSITIVE VIBE WHICH STARTS WITH YOU. (Not my words.)
Never regret being a good person to the wrong people. Your behavior says everything about you. And their behavior says enough about them.
(I bet this kid in video is mine & this paragraph got nothing to do with the post above. To my CMU mates; Let’s meet near uni for a good time. Demi wants a takeaway from summer palace. I suggest a private dining at porro llandaff, missing those Italian sausages, breakfast calzone & fishcakes since 4+ years. Support daddy Tap & text a 🖕 emoji to Demi. Either ways it’s a treat by that bitch.🤪 If you are coming anywhere from Swansea, contact Matt for a free pick-up. Rest of those who can’t meet, click here.)
Look at it this way: “Everything you’re currently doing is the past that you’ll be talking about in your future”. At the same time, every thing you’re currently doing is the future you’ll be living. How you choose to live in this moment is what creates your past and your future. The funny thing is, a lot of us are stuck in the past or the future, not realizing that now is the only time we truly have to create our lives.
How to free your mind from the past: A lot of people haven’t learned the art of letting go, the art of forgiveness, and the art of acceptance.
Many people carry around too many regrets, hold onto grudges, and carry around loads of mistakes.
Understand one thing clearly: “You can’t change what has already happened”. You have to learn to stop victimizing yourself and let go. You have to free your mind from the weight of the past. Good or bad, your past experiences occurred to mature you, not to keep you stuck. Forgive yourself for them, accept what happened, and gracefully let go. You have better things be creating with your mind right now. MANIFEST A POSITIVE YOU RIGHT NOW.
I may regret many things: Decisions I made. Decisions I didn’t make. Feelings I expressed. Feelings I suppressed. People I loved. People I rejected. People I respected. People I neglected. People I listened to. People I confided in. Promises I made. Promises I believed. Questions I asked. Answers I gave. Words I said. Words I didn’t say.
At the end reflecting is essential, but regret should not ground you in the past. It should make you grateful that you have a conscious mind that realizes what is right and wrong. It should give you strength to wisely use your present to make your future better. It should free you. If you don’t stop judging yourself, putting yourself down, believing that this is as good as you can be, then you’ve closed doors for yourself before they even appear in front of you. You’ve become a slave of your past & you aren’t allowed to. Don’t expect to be who you want to be without being true to yourself and believing in yourself. If you don’t believe in yourself, don’t expect anyone to believe in you. If you don’t see the best in yourself, don’t expect anyone to see the best in you. When you close a door; do you expect back and stare at it and say, “I can’t leave because this door is still closed in front of me”? Think about it. Take small steps consistently, but with good vibe & high energy. Be True to Yourself.
Dead people receive more flowers than living ones, because regret is stronger than gratitude.

(This video got nothing to do with the post above. Few days back i saw Canada experiencing 50°c weather which boiled a billion shellfish alive near shore & now 120 people died in Western Europe flood, all caused by CLIMATE CHANGE. This kind of unexpected heavy rainfall is possible due to mixture of the hot air escaping our environment & cold humid air up there. The sad part is; some dumbfucks & a group of politicians will still not understand this issue. My heart goes out to those who lost their loved ones & who are still in search of their families in such situations. PEACE.)
Figure out what you want to do with your life and just do it. Dedicate a separate journal for yourself to write down all of your goals and detailed steps towards achieving them. Stopping sitting around and half arsing your way through things because you can’t seem to find any direction, because seriously life is what you make it and sometimes you need to get up and force yourself to do the things that will benefit your future.
Things like “I’m Still Young” or “I’m Too Old” are out of the question & out of fashion as well, no matter how old you are, what you study or where you study, use the time you have right now to hustle, level up your skills. I mean real hustle. Because you don’t want to look back and say you should’ve worked harder, trained harder, tried harder, thought harder, fought harder. Don’t give yourself a reason to have regrets later on in life.
If you work too much on something even if it’s on yourself, you might feel like “I have way too much to lose”. When people look back, they often regret the things they didn’t do much more than the things they did.
It’s better to look back on your life in awe at how exciting it was instead of thinking about the what ifs and what could have been. Maybe that means you’ll make a few mistakes and wrong decisions along the way but it’s better than having regrets and broken Dreams later.
How many of you struggle to say NO? If you’re one like that, you probably have the tendency to want to make other people happy even at your own expense. For most of us, saying NO is a real challenge. We humans are naturally caring. Our personality often makes us feel like it’s our job to take care of other people’s needs and saying NO can feel like a personal failure. In such moment, we are more than happy to make sacrifices for others. However once our energy drains with a sense of overwhelm, they lead us to regret.
First prioritize self care before thinking about other person’s wellbeing or pain. Keep things simple & real. Life is fun, let it be.
