Exactly one month more to go before another year will be added to my life.

I'm turning 21 years old in 30 days, and I just can't help but wonder, what did I learn for the last 335 days? What goals was I able to achieve in just a short period? Was I able to live a meaningful year, or COVID-19 blew it away? Did I make new memories with my friends and family? Was I able to tick off some of my plans for this year? Was I able to give myself some time to loosen up?

There are actually a lot of questions that are running inside my mind as I am writing this article. Questions that deserve a realistic and honest answer.

While the future is uncertain, one thing is for sure, another year means another chance to continue doing what I am doing or to stop unnecessary things that I am doing, in order to achieve all of my goals and aspirations in life.

While I am still thrilled about the future, I am also excited to face another year. I know I will be able to learn more, experience new things, and grow to be the best version of myself.

30 days left to plan another set of goals for the coming year. While there are a lot of dreams that are set to be conquered, I want to take this chance to look back to the past years that I have lived my life.

If you are asking what the essence of this article is, it is actually for me to ponder and realize the lessons I learned that I know will be useful for me in the future. It is also for me to look back on all of the challenges I have faced throughout this journey called life. It is also a way to share some of my small wins and victories to somehow inspire and motivate other people on this platform. I am going to share my new set of plans or even some of my old plans with all of you.

Since I have made my profile more personal already, then I will just try to keep it that way by sharing more of me. And I hope you will still be there with me as I go on with my journey here.

Birthdays are very special to me. Maybe to some, birthdays are just normal or ordinary days. But for me, it is something that I look forward to every year. It is because as I age, I become more mature. And because my birthday is fast approaching, which is on December 22, it is now time to list down my realizations in life.

Life Realization Number 1:

"Don't rush. Trust God's perfect timing."

If you have been reading some of my "personal" articles, you would have concluded that I am the type of person who is somehow always in a hurry. And to be honest, I am really that kind of person. I am always rushing things up.

In real life, I am a fast-walker. Some studies say that fast-walkers will most likely live longer, but for me, I feel like I will only be able to live for another 20 or 30 years more. And that is why I want things done already. I want to achieve all of my goals within my deadline.

Just like what I have mentioned in my past articles, there is a timeline that I am following. That is probably the reason why I am hustling instead of partying, studying instead of sleeping, working instead of eating, waking up early instead of enjoying the comfort of my bed, saving instead of buying new clothes and shoes, and investing instead of wasting money. There are so many goals and dreams that I want to achieve in a specific deadline.

I have set my own deadlines without thinking that it is not me who is in control of my life, but it is God. And that no matter how much I want things to be done, if it is not yet in God's perfect timing, it will never happen.

I have proven this realization a lot already, and I keep proving to myself that my timing is and will never be perfect, and only God's timing is.

I can't assure you that I won't rush things anymore especially that it has been a part of my system. But I will just put my trust in God because His ways are always better than my ways, and His plans are always higher than my plans.

And yes,tama ka. Don't rush things. I believe na lahat ng bagay ay nkatakda sa tamang panahon. minsan kasi, kakamadali natin, di natin napapansin yung mga bagay na dapat natin pagtuunan ng pansin at oras.

I am 28 and I am just about to begin setting and achieving goals. You are good by realizing things earlier, someday when you've reached your goals you will be reaping it off and enjoy yourself even not yet on retiring age. Well, don't rush too much just balance it, or else you will miss your purpose.

I hope I will be able to reach my goals so that I will be able to pursue the goals of my parents too. But I'm learning not to rush now, and just keep things slow. 😁

I'm older than you but I haven't thought about any realizations for my 32 years of existence and reading your article makes me realize that I really need to do some self-checking and see if there are some things that I can change to improve myself. Thank you for this article. Will be waiting for the rest of your realizations.

I feel like I will only be able to live for another 20 or 30 years more. And that is why I want things done already. I want to achieve all of my goals within my deadline.

what? how can you say that 20-30 years more is the only time left?

me, i want to reach 120years old. I'm currently 25 going to be 26 this coming january, but i feel like i haven't done much with my life yet... 😢

Don't rush, but also don't dwaddle or you'll be left behind. just like me.

i'll go and check out some of your personal stories... maybe i can learn something from that... 👍

thanks... 👍 but seriously dying in 20-30years is not a nice thought. i don't want to die at 50-60years old...

Oh. Is it? 🤣 80+ is great tho. I hope to live longer too but I'm just somehow trying to be realistic. 😁

you want realistic? haha, live an optimal and healthy lifestyle. if it's optimal it doesn't mean comfort, it means exercise bundled with pain and making sacrifices with what you eat, what your body needs, against what you want to eat.🍗

sacrifice = pain = better life.

pasensya na kung parang matapang pagkasabi ko haha.😅
