Among all else, the ultimate secret to living a quiet and peaceful life is to put God in the center of your life. When you have a strong foundation of beliefs and values, you have more control over your actions and choices. Peace is found when you’re self-aware of what you want and how you want to achieve it without needing to ask for anybody else’s input. It’s found when you truly love yourself despite your wounds and scars. If you live for someone else’s expectations, that’s a clear sign that you’re unhappy and at war with yourself.
Healthy relationships are formed not because both persons in it are good-natured and perfect. They are created because two people chose to work it out despite the odds. All relationships have series of challenges to go through, no exemption. They have their ups and downs. It takes intention, compromise, love, and commitment to take care of your relationship.
Some people pass through life without ever finding happiness. They may have experienced quite a few remarkable days in their lifetimes, but deep inside, they were never contented. They turned blind to the beauty of life because they consumed too much of the darkness around them. Sometimes, we get so overwhelmed with the pressure of being happy that it raises more doubt whether we truly are happy.
In your twenties, it’s without a doubt that you’ll experience those rare inner peace breakthroughs that make you change your perspective about life. When that time comes, you’ll reaffirm that age doesn’t truly determine maturity. It comes with experience and reflection that you’ll realize you’ve grown.
With this being said, what are the instances that make you grow? What are the signs that can make you say you’ve grown wiser? And when you indeed encounter these exceptional moments of your life, what do you do about it? Is this a once-in-a-lifetime moment, or do you intend to instill and share these insights to your family and friends? As you’re still on the starting line, you may not be totally convinced with your plans right now, you’ll realize what you’re yearning for what can’t be bought with money.
