Lessons I've learned over the years // Cosas que aprendí con los años

sábado, junio 25, 2016

This is a different post from all the ones I've been doing recently ("recently" because I haven't post in a while), but as I was writing it I came to the realization that this is one of the best posts I've ever made, so I hope you really like it. 

Este es un post diferente al que estuve haciendo en el ultimo tiempo (aunque no estuve publicando muy seguido). Mientras escribía esto me di cuenta de que es uno de los mejores posts que hice, así que espero de corazón que les guste mucho. 


 

  • If you want something you've never had, you must be willing to do something you've never done: Shoutout to whoever said this, but it's really true. And you can apply this to any situation. For example, I always wanted to climb a mountain, and this year I start preparing myself to that and I thought it was going to be so much easier that what it really is. But it's okay, you have to change your ways, your thoughts, and try harder than before, a lot harder. But you can, you got this. 
  • Don't plant all your happiness in one person and let it grow in them: People leave and the you're left with only sadness. So place your happines in forever things, like music, or art or movies or anything that makes you happy. Or even better, work on making yourself the happiest you've ever been. 
  • Things are going to be okay: It's like when you're driving at night and the road is calm. You see the starts and you're listening to music and for that moment you just feel so complete, you feel like everything is going to be okay, and that life is so so beautiful. Do this often, too. 
  • If you want something, don't sit on the couch and wait for it: Go out, make a change, smile, do new things that make you happy. Throw away old things that you've been cluttering, stop surrounding yourself with negative people. 
  • You have to live with your choices: I hope that you're doing things for yourself because people won't remember your choices in twenty years, but you have to live with them. 
  • Life is only as kind as you let it be: I don't know much about life, or love, or a lot of things. But if I've learned anything is that all that sadness, pain and toxic people are temporary. So be kind to yourself, with your life, and I promise that life will be kind to you. 
  • You don't have to get out of bed every day: There'll be days when you won't feel like waking up and be a person, so stay in bed, eat your favourite food and watch that movie that you like so much. It's okay to disconnect yourself from the world and the people in it sometimes. 
  • 99% of problemas can be fixed if you speak to the person you have a problem with: Don't create unnecessary drama and talk to everybody about the problem you have with x person instead of talking with he/she. For real, if you talk straight with that person it'll be a lot more simple. 
  • Go where you feel the most alive: if you are in problems, go to that place where you feel free and alive. Take a moment and breathe. 
  • Be grateful: Our lives could be gone in a moment, and it's kind of sad to think like that but the truth is that there are no guarantees that we will be here at this time next year. So live each day to the fullest, try not to complain, don't focus on what's wrong and instead be grateful for the good people and things you have in your life. 
  • Invest in people who invest in you: don't waste your time trying to make somebody stay. People will love you for who you are.
  • Everyone's pain is different: I don't like when people compare. I hate when people marginalize their feelings because they think they're not allowed to have them. Someone will always have a tougher time than you. That doesn't mean you're not allowed to feel hurt or sad. Never forget that.
  • Start your life again whenever you need to: Don't be too hard on yourself for crying, you need to vent in order to move on to better times. If things don't work out, stop forcing them. And don't run away, it doesn't always solve everything because sometimes the reason that made you run will still be with you. Focus on freeing yourself so you can start a new life. 

  • Si queres algo que nunca tuviste antes, tenes que hacer algo que nunca hiciste antes: Aplaudo a quien sea que dijo esto, porque tiene toda la razón. Podes aplicar esto a cualquier situación. Por ejemplo, siempre quise escalar una montaña y este año empece a prepararme para hacerlo, y al ir haciéndolo me di cuenta que es mucho mas difícil de lo que creí que iba a ser. Pero esta bien, uno tiene que cambiar la manera en la que hace algo, los pensamientos y intentar mucho mas que antes, muchísimo. Pero vos podes. 
  • No deposites toda tu felicidad en una persona: La gente se va y solo te va a dejar con tristeza. Esto no quiere decir que no quieras a los demás o no seas feliz con ellos, sino que simplemente no dejes que toda tu felicidad gire en torno a esa persona. Pone tu felicidad en cosas que estén siempre, como la música, el arte, o lo que sea que te haga feliz. O mejor, trabaja en ser tu mejor versión y ser feliz con vos mismo. 
  • Las cosas van a estar bien: Si, probablemente leíste esto una y mil veces pero nunca esta de mal repetirlo. Es como cuando estas manejando a la noche y la ruta esta tranquila. Ves las estrellas y escuchas música y en ese momento te sentís simplemente tan completo, sentís que todo va a estar bien y que la vida es hermosa. Hace esto seguido, también. 
  • Si queres algo, no te sientes y esperes que llegue solo: Salí, hace un cambio, hace cosas que te hagan feliz. Deja atrás todo lo que estuviste acumulando, no te juntes mas con gente negativa. 
  • Tenes que vivir con tus elecciones: Espero que estés haciendo cosas por vos porque la gente no va a acordarse de tus elecciones en veinte años, pero vos tenes que vivir con ellas. No esta mal priorizarse. 
  • La vida es tan buena como vos la dejas ser: No se mucho de la vida, o el amor, o muchas cosas mas. Pero si hay algo que aprendí es que toda esa tristeza, dolor o gente toxica es temporario. Se bueno con vos mismo, con tu vida, y te prometo que la vida va a ser buena con vos. 
  • No tenes que salir de la cama todos los días: Hay días en los cuales no te vas a sentir bien como para levantarte y ser una persona, así que quédate en la cama, come tu comida favorita y mira esa película que tanto amas. Esta bien desconectarse del mundo y de la gente en el algunas veces. 
  • 99% de los problemas pueden arreglarse si hablas con la persona con la que tenes un problema: no crees drama innecesario, no hables con todos sobre ese problema en vez de hablar con la persona con la cual lo tenes. En serio, si vas directo a hablar con esa persona todo va a ser mucho mas simple. 
  • Anda donde te sientas mas vivo: Si tenes problemas o te sentís perdido, anda a ese lugar en el que te sentís vivo y libre. Tomate un minuto y respira. 
  • Se agradecido: Nuestras vidas pueden terminar en cualquier momento, y aunque pueda ser un poco triste pensar en esto, es verdad. No hay garantías de nada. Así que viví cada día al máximo, trata de no quejarte mucho, no te enfoques en lo que esta mal y agradece por todas las personas y las cosas buenas que tenes en tu vida. Una vez que te pongas a pensar, estoy segura que vas a encontrar muchas razones. 
  • Invertí en gente que invierte en vos: No pierdas el tiempo tratando de convencer a los demás para que se queden. La gente te va a querer por quien sos. 
  • El dolor de todos es diferente: No me gusta para nada cuando la gente compara. Y odio cuando marginan los sentimientos de los demás porque creen que no tienen permitidos tenerlo. Siempre alguien la va a tener mas difícil que vos, pero eso no significa que no tengas permitido sentirte triste o dolido. Nunca te olvides de eso.
  • Empeza tu vida cuando lo necesites: No seas duro con vos mismo por llorar, muchas veces necesitas desahogarte para pasar a mejores cosas. Si las cosas no funcionan, para de forzarlas. Y no escapes, hacerlo no siempre resuelve todo porque muchas veces la razón que te hizo irte se va a quedar con vos. Enfocate en liberarte de todo eso para poder empezar una nueva vida.

  24. What an inspirational post. I especially love the quote: "If you want something you've never had, you must be willing to do something you've never done" It's so true.. sometimes you need to get out of your comfort zone to reach your goals. But in the end.. I think it will be worth it when you get there <3

  30. This was such a fantastic and moving post and I could not agree with your list more - actually everything on this list is important and true. I think the underlining theme here is to be pro-active and chase after the life you want - whether it means reaching more happiness, or accomplishing new things, but also to be fair to yourself and let yourself be human.
