We're only getting older baby and I’ve been thinking about you lately does it ever drive you crazy just how fast the night changes everything that you’ve ever dreamed of disappearing when you wake up but there’s nothing to be afraid of.

I will be 28 in 3 weeks. Even though I am so thankful for 27, I started to have this strange connection to the number. There have been a lot of dissatisfying moments and experiences happened in 27 that makes the Achtundzwanzig sounds ridiculous to me. Undeniably, there are so many case and example how judgmental and suspicious I had over the past years.

But this wasn't the lesson I wanted to tell you about. I feel like my life has changed a little bit. It occurs as an impact of pas experiences. Most of them are destructive but I think I have to pick the good lessons to be written right now so I can see my life like the sun shines out of my arse.

These are all are subject to change and some of them even contradict each other, but after 27 years and 11 months of life, here's where I'm at......

Exercise DAILY - Seriously, exercise is pretty much the biggest and best thing I can do for myself. It makes me feel, eat, and sleep better. I don't go to the gym/track everyday, but one of the first thing I do when I get up is hop on the yoga mat and do these routines: plank (min. 1 minutes), squats, lunges jumps, sit ups, and push ups (each 3 set x 15 reps). It's so tremendously good in so many ways.

Lipsticks are EVERYTHING - "Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick." Well said, Ms. Gwyneth Paltrow.

Never question WHY I'm in love with somebody - They asked me what I see in a man.. well, I love someone with my heart, not my eyes. It's been a while since I realised the instincts and emotions can lead humans in totally illogical paths to accept flaws in someone.. or to accept the unacceptable when I'm breaking up. ;)

We all HAVE dysfunctional people in our lives - But trying to teach or change them will only make me miserable. It will never work. I released myself from the cycle and disengage (I don't have to be distant or mean but accept people for who they are and focus on making myself better).

If I dislike my job, I can QUIT - If we're working and we feel like we're not there 100% anymore, I think it's okay to consider quitting our job (but I still remember the general rule of thumb when looking for a new job is to find one before quitting our current job). When we're "tired" and no longer want to be a part of our employer, we gotta follow our heart. Don't argue to that.


Getting a good job and earning a lot of money is NOT the answer to a happy life - I second that.

IT IS WHAT IT IS - Live without being influenced by other's opinions or trends *fuck you social media* and be self-dependent and practical enough to accept life as it comes.. I realised we don't have to be someone else to be interesting to someone else. Surrender to the fact that I am who I am.

It doesn't really matter in what kind of situation I might be in. It's about willing to stand up, about taking risks, about getting my arse off the couch and trying to learn and understand new things. There are opportunities to grow and educate myself everywhere and right in front of me, sometimes even in the comfort of our own neighbourhoods. I just have to GRAB them.

And that's a bit of my lesson learned when I realised that my life had, somehow, changed.

♥, Me.
