5 things I've realized

158 Comments

1. I've always thought that the more friends I have the happier I will be. Well, not until I realized that not all of them are the friends I thought they were. I mean there are certain events that made me realized that they are just only my friends for the sake of the label "friend" and not because they are my real friends. Did you get my point? I can honestly count who my real friends are and as I write this post I am already missing them. 

2. I realized that at the end of the day the chances that we didn't take are the ones that will continue to hunt us. So while there are a lot of reasons to say no, find more meaningful reasons to say yes. We don't know what it has in store for us so why not give it a chance? :)

3. When you want something set your goals high, work hard for it and don't stop until you don't get it. Eventually, everything you have sacrificed will be payed off and there's no greater feeling than reaping the rewards of all your hard works. <3

4. Someone once asked me if I do believe in "forever". I found it quite funny because I realized that he's actually the first one to ask me that mainstream question but to answer him, I said YES, i do believe that forever exists. Believing whether it exists or not won't actually hurt. Why not just believe in the goodness of everything. Hahaha! 

5. I realized that sometimes it's okay to travel, escape and live life to the fullest. It does not happen everyday so make sure to enjoy it while it lasts. 

xoxo,

  6. I 100% believe that your twenties are meant to be your selfish me-time so i spend like 80% of my money on travel right now haha. I want to go and see everything while I dont have too many responsibilities on my shoulders yet. So yes to your last point- travel, and travel often! :)

  8. What a sweet post Shaira! I agree with you on all these points, especially the second one. That's a rule I also try to live by, not letting opportunities go even if they're slightly scary!

  9. Completely agree with all five however, no. 1 is verrryyy true! It's not the quantity of friends but it's all about the quality.
