Cool Stuffs You Can Say When You’re Older

Posted on: December 26, 2015

Seriously, getting old is not always scary at all. There are many cool stuffs that you only can say out loud after you have enough experiences to say so (read: after you’re getting older!).

You need me to give you some examples? Here we go!

  1. When you’re in an important meeting and you’ve got to introduce yourself, “Hi, I’m Riffa. I have more than 7 years working experiences at bla bla bla.” The longer you’ve worked, the more awesome it sounds 😉
  2. When you’re discussing about difficult stuffs at work, “Well, based on my past experience, it should be bla bla bla”
  3. When your staffs at work are amazed by your capability to read their mind, “I’m not a mind reader, it’s just that I’ve been doing this for years. I’ve learned a lot on how to read people’s expression and tones.”
  4. When you meet up with your old friends from high school, flashing back to your past, you’ll laugh out loud and say, “Oh my God! I can’t believe I was so stupid!” You probably will laugh at your own outfit back then and be grateful that you dress much better these days 😉
  5. When you’re sitting in the crowds and overhearing youngsters in school uniforms talking about ‘difficult stuffs in life’ or ‘a serious problem with boys’, you will roll your eyes and whisper, “Kids nowadays! What do they know about real life problems?”
  6. When your younger sister is brokenhearted, “I’ve been there before, this too will pass! Someday you’ll be grateful that you ditched him!”
  7. When you fall in love with the wrong person again, “No, not again. I’m just too old for the same old drama. If he wants me, he will make an effort, period.”
  8. When you talk about many random topics with others, some of it will remind you to your past trips. “I wish we had the same train like Shinkansen. It was awesome, you barely feel that the train was moving so fast!” Or, “That movie was taken in Oia Village, Santorini. The caldera and the deep blue sea was mind blowing!” The older you are, the more places you can tell about!
  9. When you’re discussing something important with your parents, your opinion finally matters! Your Mom will really listen when you say, “Mom, please, listen…”
  10. When you show your pictures when you were still a teenager to a colleague, “See? I have aged gracefully, hehehehe.”
  11. Finally, when you look at your picture when you were just born, you’ll look at that old photograph and say to yourself, “You will have a wonderful life ahead, you will have a cool job, visit beautiful places, and meet a lot of amazing people in your life. It’s not gonna be easy, but it’s awesome!”

Don’t let your age stresses you out. Every age of our life is exciting! See it from the bright side and be happy with it!

Happy weekend and have a blast!

Life took me to many unimaginable people. The super kind, the selfless, the brave men, and of course, the mean and rude people, cheaters, liars, hypocrites, extremely arrogant, and all other qualities that got me thinking, “I never thought such people like these do exist!”
But I’ve also come to learn that sometimes, there is a bright side of the darkest people I know. They’re not always good, but they’re not always bad either.
At the end of the day, it helps me to define the people I can bear and the people I can’t stand. And most importantly, it helps me to decide the person I would like to become. I’m not a funny person. I’m not good at mingle with random people. I’m fierce, I’m a straight-talker, I get annoyed easily, and I have this resting b face that makes me look angry all the times. I’m not that kind of person whom people would miss when I’m not around.
But you know what?
I’m okay with all that flaws I have in me. Nobody is perfect, and neither am I. At the same time; everyone on earth is special, and so am I.
I know my worth. I know what I’m very good at. I know what I want and I work hard to make it happen. I’m a go getter and I fight my battles. I’m not an angel, but I’m not a devil either.
I was born to be the very best of myself, and just because I don’t always have what others have, it doens’t make me less as a person inside out. I’m whole just the way I am, and I’m beyond grateful of all that. I know that my career has been a bit of trouble for my personal life. I admit that it feels like a loss to me sometimes, but you know what? I don’t feel sorry about all that, not a even just a little bit.
My career has given me a comfort bed to sleep, taken me to the places I’ve never seen, brought me to the incredible people who end up as my best friends, and most importantly, it has really made my parents proud. I can sleep tight at night knowing that at least, I can support my parents after their retirements.
The way I see it, there’s nothing bad about all that, so why should anybody in my position feel sorry and less proud about their own hard works?
Don’t let anybody make you feel less than who you are. Make yourself and your loved ones proud, and for me, the rest doesn’t matter at all.
Be great, women! Whatever you choose to do for your own life, be great at it and don’t feel sorry for anything good in your life! Happy International Women’s day and stay awesome!
