Co nás korona měla naučit?

Bře 27, 2020

This is a great time for us to learn something about life:
.
ALL THAT GLITTERS IS NOT GOLD.
.
In the pursuit of values like advancement, wealth and social status, we’ve forgotten what the real values of life are.
.
And that they’re NOT “free” and “given”.
.
We’ve been raised thinking that only if we go to great schools and make lots of money, only then we’ll be happy, socially respected and successful.
.
(Almost) nobody teached us that being grateful for what we already have and pursuing what is important to us, not the society, is what will REALLY make us happy and successful.
.
And this is the time we can REALIZE all that. We’ve been forced to stop, thanks to which we have time to think and reflect.
.
I’m speaking to you, 14 years old girl wishing to be a supermodel, as well as you, 73 years old millionaire man (Trumps age, what a coincidence…). And all of you in between.
.
It’s your time to think back on your life and recognize which major events of it have happened because YOU wanted it or SOMEONE ELSE made you want it.
.
I once valued the things on the left of the photo too. But only THANKS TO BAD/PAINFUL EVENTS HAPPENING in my life, it made me realize what is really important. What I NEED rather than what (I think) I want.
.
This is one of the “bad/painful events” in your life. And YOU’RE ONLY A DECISION AWAY FROM CHANGING YOUR LIFE.
.
I did it, you can do it. From a superficial business school student know-it-all to guy who’s sincerely trying to figure life out on the way.
.
So sit the f back now, grab a pen if that’s your thing, and write down what you NEED from life.
