Lessons I Learned The Hard Way

Life consists of ups and downs, victories and defeats, pains and joys, successes and failures. For the past (almost) three decades, I’ve been learning and re-learning things. While I still cannot consider myself an expert, I have gained knowledge on life’s essentials - how to not just survive, but thrive! Thanks to the best mentor in the world – experience!
I do not regret learning them the hard way. I just wish I had known them earlier. :)


So, if I had the chance to talk to my younger self, I would have given her the following life lessons: 
Delays are not denials.I recently read a book by Mitch Albom where he wrote, “It is never too late or too soon. It is when it is supposed to be.” Had I read that long before, I would not have drowned in too much misery and self-pity for all the “delays” in my life.

Hey! I'm still alive! And so is this blog! ♥♥♥
If you know me so well, you would know that I'm the kind of person who likes to schedule things. For me, TIMING is very important. I'm obsessed with numbers and meanings. 
But just recently, I was reminded that life is too short, and I just couldn't WAIT for the perfect moment, I have to create it. 
I always say that ALL IT TAKES IS A DECISION. I have made the decision to start over - begin again, pursue the dreams I have kept in my heart since time immemorial, become the awesome woman I am meant to be (because I believe we're all destined for greatness).
