I’ve always loved to write in a diary. Never went back to read something I wrote, though. The past is where it belongs – in the past, and my only task is to learn the lessons and to live in today.
However, sometimes I go over my agendas, and I often find some small writings that belong to the diary, but somehow end up somewhere else.
The other day I found this small message from myself, and while reading it, I realised it’s something I would like to share with you. It’s personal but somehow many people could see themselves in it.
It’s from last year, just a day before my 30th birthday. It’s a “Goodbye” to my 20s and a “Hello” to the 30s. I didn’t make any corrections, so if it sounds a little bit weird, please forgive me.
“At the evening before my 30th birthday, I’d like to wish one thing for myself and to remind myself one more.
I’d like to learn how to find the good in the ordinary day and to focus on it; to let the pain, the negativity, the bitterness and the tears stay in the last decade.
It was hard, but if I have to chose to go through the same and meet the most amazing man in this world, I will do it again. And again. If he is the prize at the end of the horrible war, I will fight in it again.
And I want to remind myself that every difficulty was a lesson that ended with something good. It really did.
So, in the future, when I get into another rough moment, I want to remember just one thing:
Everything will be alright!
No matter how horrible everything looks like, and no matter the lack of logic in it – everything will be alright. The lesson will be over when I take my exam. Not a day before that and not a day after.
And I want to thank God and the Universe. I am grateful for every tear and every smile. I am grateful for every hardship and every trial. I am grateful for everything I went through. It was hard, but it was worth it.
I still have lots to learn, but I am more confident and happier than ever.
Goodbye to my 20s and let the future meets me with my dreams. Exactly in the way my present does it.
I live my dream.
I won my dream.
I am my dream.”
So, if you had to write a message to yourself, giving an advice based on what you’ve learnt in life so far, what would it be? Write it down and read it often. Because we forget our own lessons so easy… and we shouldn’t. Leave your message to yourself down in the comments.
