Never ever be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be a victim = accept no one’s definition of your life, that is your job, define yourself.
A life spent making mistakes is more useful than going through life doing nothing. However, try to learn from other people’s mistakes as well, don’t do them all yourself.
- I may look like I am not doing anything, but on a cellular level, I am quite busy…
You must be willing to let go of the life you have planned and open for the life that is waiting for you. In modern language, you must be agile about your own life.
One of my favorites that I once saw in a classroom when my children were small -There are no strangers here; Only friends you haven't yet met.
Remember, life is what happens while you are busy making other plans.
You're only here for a short visit. Don't hurry, don't worry. And be sure to smell the flowers along the way.
