I looked my notes on Facebook that I wrote three years ago. At 22 years old, I learned a lot about the ‘meaning of life’ especially from 2008-2010. The value, principle, and philosophy of life is began to be formed and renew again.
At that time, I said, “Regret it or not, it’s all the passed”.
And I said, “Now, it’s time to learn and to begin forming what my life would be in two, three or five years later.”
I do not realize this is a time. In this year-2013, I want to put more in my lists that I have already learned in life.
25 Things in life that I learned
1. What I sowed, it’s also I harvested.
2. Giving is beautiful, include when I have the nothing.
3. Accept what has happened and never regret it.
4. Forgive my mistakes, mistakes of others, and continue to live. Life is not perfect, and nobody is perfect.
