Living and learning

It’s been a while since I have written a post. Not that life has been that busy. What have changed since then? I grew more mature (I guess), still making mistakes (we’re mere humans after all) but there is so much I’ve learn.

I have learn that you cannot run from your responsibilities. As much as you want to be a carefree person, sooner or later, “life” will catch you. There will be tough decisions to be made, people to confront, dilemmas, etc. but there will also be joys, happy and pleasurable moments that you must learn to enjoy and cherish. Those will be good memories that you’ll want to hold to.

I have learn that Confidence is important. Confidence will lead you to that next step. Confidence is not only for life big challenges (getting hired, buying a new house, travel the world, leave your job, starting your business, etc.). Confidence is necessary even in the small acts (buying a dress that people think is too bold, getting to know this new co-worker, changing your hairstyle, and so on)

I have learn that living up to your convictions help shape the person that you are and you have to stay true to yourself.

I have learn that it is important to interact with all kind of people. Not the one you feel secure with, not the one you are comfortable with, not the one you feel good about. Enlarge your circle, get to know those that are older and younger than you, from a different country, different culture. You’ll be amazed about what you’ll learn.

 

meeting all kinds of people

I have learn that you have to break the routine. Yes, after doing things the same way for a while, it can be a little daunting to break the cycle. But do it!

I believe in…

I never really thought about my convictions even though I knew what my religious convictions are; I always thought every other thing would stem from there. But as the values of the world are evolving, and we are faced everyday with new social challenges, I ask myself: what are my true convictions, what would I fight against, what does truly matters for me and what don’t, if was facing a dilemma, what option would I choose and why?black-woman-thinking

 

I realized that it is important to know now than facing a situation where you are totally confused. The danger in not knowing is that you start to embrace the convictions of others which are not necessarily yours, maybe it’s your parents, your friends or colleagues’ but it’s not yours. Having your own convictions began by challenging what you already know and see if fits with you current values. I say current because this might change over time, as you grow older or getting more maturity.

So, my goal now is know what my true convictions are. This is going to be interesting because, I love to have my own opinions about things, I want to know myself better and learn how to fight for what I believe in. That doesn’t mean that I am not open to others opinions, I am, because I love to learn from others.

 

What are your convictions? What do you think it’s worth fighting for?
