What I've Learned in 35 Years

I'm back! 

Haha! Apparently, it's been more than a year since I posted on this blog site. But, rest assured, this site is still alive! I'm just much more active on my other social media sites like Facebook, Instagram and YouTube. 

I missed writing here, to be honest. I checked out my older posts and I realized that probably the only time I was really consistent with my posts was way back 2018 - because back then, I was really living my best life! I was having fun at work, I got a decent amount of time spent with my close friends, and I was learning a lot of lessons. I was living life on my terms - most of my income was spent doing the things that I actually like. I was regularly going to the gym back then, I was painting quite often and making extra money off of it, and most importantly, I could go wherever I want to go. 

The pandemic turned my life upside-down and inside-out, though. 

I can say I was still doing pretty well until the beginning of 2020, but, the second quarter of that year was just unbelievably unkind to me. Long story short - I'm not exactly where I want to be right now...as I am typing this post. BUT, I'm pretty sure that this, too, is only temporary. 

So, that's a little bit of an update about my life and also perhaps it could work as an intro to what was supposed be my YEARLY post which is about my life lessons. Usually, even if I can't write a birthday post within my birth month, I'd make sure to write the following month at the very least. I can't believe I let a whole year slide without redeeming myself, so, here I am now! I am sort of exiting my mid-thirties now as we speak...and the lessons just keep coming. 

Here goes...another list of my life lessons! 

1. You don't have to answer inappropriate questions. 

2. When it comes to weight loss, sometimes, it's not about eating less but more about eating right. 

3. If you're not losing at least a few people in your life, you're not evolving. 

4. The only way to get rid of bad habits is to replace them with good ones. 

5. Visualization is necessary to get the life that you want.
