Remember, there will always be someone who will judge you for what you do. Let them, because in the end, it doesn’t matter. It’s not who you are, and it’s not who you should be.
Instead of forcing myself to work on something I kept getting stuck on, I did the opposite — I had fun.
Many people don’t realize it, but learning is the most important skill you can ever learn.
I used to think I’d experienced all that I needed to for dim sum and that there were no better alternatives, but the truth is, there’re always hundreds.
Having a stable income, being able to settle down with a family, raising your kids, getting together with friends on the weekend, and having a place to call home — these are all things I vie for but don’t get because of how often I travel.
I realized I’d wasted most of my life doing nothing. So I began spending every minute of my day learning something new (specialized skills, social gestures, money-saving apps…) that could help me for the rest of my life.
What am I going to do with my life?
Always be a first-rate version of yourself instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.
So why was he yelling at me years after to change who I was? Wasn’t I perfect the way I was?
But what about us? Where are our expectations?
