“Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to reform (or pause and reflect).”
― Mark Twain
Earth was a soup of nothingness, a bottomless emptiness, an inky blackness until the creation. The creation of all we now see and the creation of man and what man, most humans want at least, is to matter. No matter how little.
Everyday we strive for wisdom, to learn something in the least form. We write and read stories and experiences of others most time to learn from it.
A goal of mine for 2019 that I was too scared to admit is to stop being afraid of what others would say. As a believer of doing what makes you happy and doing the things you truly love and care about, given it doesn’t hurt anyone, I have been living quite the exact opposite, just so people would ‘like’ me.
So this year or new phase, I’m going to ramble on about what I love and my passion. I am going to write, weirdly, a paragraph/sentence/line story series, motivational rambles, health, fitness, mental health.
I’ll be using the book of Proverbs because I believe it was written so we know how to live well and right. To understand what life means and where it’s going – a manual for living.
Most self help books you’ll ever come across would have lessons curbed from this book. To those who don’t believe in reading self help books because they believe you have to have the willingness to change on the inside first, well, I know no one reads a motivational book or willingly watches a video without having that willingness.
So today, Proverbs 1.
1. Start with God :- In a world where it’s getting harder to talk about God in public, the first step in learning is surrendering to that God. (I am not going to shove my religion down your throats).
2. Listen to/Learn from the older/younger ones/everyone:- I know some parents or elderly ones may not be the best and they might have made a couple or a lot of mistakes but their lives or they can teach you life lessons.
3. Avoid bad companies: This isn’t a new one – Those we relate with can influence us more than we think we know.
4. Think before you leap: We all, at a point in our lives, seek advice from friends, families, the young, the old, and sometimes we forget to think before making the big decision. We still need to ponder on the advice before making major or even minor decisions. And don’t beat yourself up when you make mistakes. Sometimes, they are inevitable.
5. Carelessness kills. Complacency is murder.
