I’m sure you already know this.
10 Painfully Obvious Truths Everyone Forgets Too Soon: SOURCE
1.The Average Human Life is Relatively Short
My dad always says “The older you get the faster time goes” some days I wish I could slow time down.
2.You live the life you create for yourself
Remember it’s better to be at the bottom of the ladder you want to climb than the top of the one you don’t. #foodforthought
3.Being Busy Does Not Mean Being Productive
Oh my word, this is so true…
4.Some Kind of Failure always occurs before success
I tell myself this all the time when I have a bad race
5.Thinking and Doing are two very different things
Can we just reflect on my “to do list” I sometimes leave out the “do” part of the list.
6.You don’t have to wait for an apology to forgive.
I’m normally a really forgiving person. I always ask myself the important question when I’m in a tiff with someone (of course after I’ve finished cursing them out in my head) 1. Will this matter in one month?! Usually the answer is no. The forgetting is where I struggle.
7.Some People are simply the wrong match for you
I know a lot of people automatically go to “Dating” when reading this. Since I have that taken care off, I think this relates to me in the work place. I’m always nice to everyone. That’s how I was raised. Just because person A. doesn’t like person B because of XYZ doesn’t mean I have to not like person A. BUT let’s be honest sometimes you just don’t gel with people. This is my struggle at work. We are just so different but that’s ok. I’m learning just because we are different it’s not ok to put your head phones on and pretend not to hear them when they talk to you all damn day!
8.It’s not other peoples job to love you; it’s yours
This is so true… Small story…
During one of my ½ Mary’s I remember thinking “where are the people cheering for us” Why is no one cheering for the runners?. Yes, these are the things that run through my mind while I pound the pavement. Then I thought to myself…um… if you want encouragement, you better start cheering your own damn self on. So that’s what I did. I’m sure people thought I escaped from the Looney bin but this girl was cheering her ass on. Whether you are cheering yourself on or showing yourself some love. Do it!
9.What you own is not who you are.
Another good one. It’s so easy to get caught up with what everyone has. Social media isn’t helping this get any better. I mean people are constantly flashing every single detail of their life on the internet. It’s easy to forget that our material things do not define us.
10.Everything Changes Every Second.
Embrace change… we can’t stop it… we can’t control it…we can only adapt to it.
