Value The Moment When You Have A Chance

"Sometimes, you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory!"

-Theodor Seuss Geisel

We are always busy with the daily routine that makes us forget to appreciate the little things in our life.

We take our family for granted; since we wake up until we go to bed, our day is filled with many things to do so often that we keep postponing visiting our parents or even make a phone call to them.

We don't spend time with our kids when they want us because we always have a reason that we are too busy to play with them.

We tend to forget that our kids grow up when we are busy with our lives, and our parents grow old.

We never know how long we will have a chance to spend time with our parents. And we can't go back to the time when our kids were very young.

So, we should learn to cherish our moments with our loved ones when we still have a chance before it becomes a memory!

Stop Caring What Others Think About You.

 "What other people think of you is not your business. If you start to make that business your business, you will be offended for the rest of your life."

-Deepak Chopra

We are human beings; naturally, we need to be liked by others. Often we care so much about what other people think about us. Growing up, we have learned to follow the standard or the norm that our society has created.

We always do the things we are supposed to do, which makes us forget to follow our hearts. We have a dream, but we don't dare to chase it because we fear failure. We fear how other people will judge or think about us.

And we even try to please others to make them approve or like us. We act like these because we have learned that we have to get approval from others, making us feel we fit in. We live up to other's expectations. 

I was the one who tried to be a people pleaser because I wanted approval and like. I used to live up to other's expectations that included my family's. Until one day, I have realized that living that way will not make me happy.

I don't have to worry about what others will think about me because it isn't my business, but it is their business. And I have only one life, why don't I live and spend it the way I want? And what others think of me does not matter, but what I think about myself does matter!
