30 Things I Learned Before 30

Posted on: November 29, 2016


Believe it or not, I’ve started writing this post over the past one year just to be posted exactly tonight; a few hours before my 30th birthday. It’s all the life lessons I learned (the hard way for many of them) in the first thirty years of my life.

Here we go… Thirty things I learned before thirty.

  1. Dream, believe, and make it happen! I should always try to find a way to make my life worth living;
  2. When my very best effort doesn’t seem to be good enough, perhaps, it’s only because God has prepared something better for my future. Don’t run after the things that are not meant to be;
  3. Gain some, lose some. There’s always a price I’ve got to pay in everything I earn in life;
  4. Courage will take me to places I’ve never seen. Be bold enough to speak up my mind and to stand tall for myself;
  5. There’s nobody can tell me what I can and what I can’t do until I give it a try. Nobody can, not even myself!
  6. I’ve got to know when I should listen to someone else and when I should close my ears tight;
  7. The more I give, the more I get in return. The universe will always have its ways to repay it all;
  8. My battle is not about learning how to be patient, it’s to learn how to be wiser. How to be angry in a right way, in a right time;
  9. Be very good at something will always be my strength everytime something else in my life is falling apart. Hold on to it!
  10. There’s always an insecurity behind everything that is exaggerated. Don’t be fooled by that!
  11. Fairness is NOT always about equality. People might despise me for doing justice, but it’s their problems, not mine;
  12. I’m always too little or too much to someone who doesn’t really want me in their lives;
  13. Life is not only about finding the people who accept me with all my flaws, but also about finding the ones who can celebrate my victories;
  14. The more I have in life, the more people will try to make me feel less than who I really am;
  15. Friendship is not about the quantity, it’s the quality;
  16. No matter how hard I try, I will never be able to make everyone like me. And it’s okay;
  17. I’m not perfect. Nobody is perfect. And it’s okay too;
  18. True love doesn’t always make a perfect sense. I just look at him and I know that I love him. And that’s that;
  19. If I really love somebody, no matter how hard it is, I’d rather give my very best fight to make it happen. Otherwise, the “what if” questions will only haunt me for the years to come;
  20. True love is crystal clear. If it’s not a yes, it’s a no. If he really loved me, he would not do the things that would risk him of losing me. And if the feelings are mutual, the efforts are equal;
  21. When I forgive others, I forgive myself;
  22. Love myself first. The rest will follow;
  23. Find something I’d love to do and do a lot more of it;
  24. I don’t need to wait until I have all the things I want just to be happy. Happiness starts now!
  25. Happiness is a work. A HARD work!
  26. Life is too short to be a hater. If something looks great on someone else’s life, it doesn’t mean it will certainly look good on me too;
  27. I can’t be perfect, but I can always be awesome!
  28. Be good to myself. I owe this after every sweat, tear, and pain that I’ve been through;
  29. Don’t lose faith in humanity, in love, in friendship, in believing that this world still can be a better place;
  30. The rest of the world may give up on me, but I should never give up on myself.

The beauty of diversity. I'm glad that I met them along my career path at Lazada. Just a little help like this could mean everything to me and The Lens Story. Many thanks! ❤️

#friends #friendshipgoals #diversity #photography #photooftheday #canon #snapseed #thelenstory Find someone who loves you properly.
The one who never intentionally let you wait for him.
The one who never makes you have to wonder how he truly feels about you.
The one who will definitely catch you and hold you tight as you fall for him.
The one who gives you all he has to be a better man, to fix what goes wrong, to fight for you and to never let you go.
You are too old for another Mr. Wrong, reward yourself with the right one.
Love yourself enough to leave your past, you deserve better.

#love #life #quote #photography #photooftheday #thelenstory I'm not perfect. I make mistakes. I do the things I'm not proud of. I give up, sometimes. I hurt people, mostly the ones that I actually care about. I have a lot of flaws, but at least, I'm trying hard to be a better person. I'm no saint nor angel, but I'm not a pure evil either. I'm simply a human who is trying to be the very best that I can be. I'll never stop learning, until my very last breath.
