Some Notes After Twenty Five Years

Life has been one roller coaster that is impossible to describe to someone who hasn’t been on it with you. I quickly learnt that everyone is walking their own path in their own shoes, ones that would never fit me. We all have our own paths here and our own amount of time left here. It’s became evidently clear to me that tomorrow is never promised. So all we can do today, is enjoy it for all we have.

In twenty five years the one thing I have learnt is that all we have is right now. Things that won’t matter tomorrow shouldn’t be a problem today and that it’s significantly more comfortable to sleep in a bed that you made rather than the bed that has been made for you. The best nights I have ever slept have been when I fall asleep with a smile on my face.

In twenty five years I’ve learnt that life is simple. If you want something you have to work for it. Opportunity will never knock unless you give it a reason too. Our cognitive thinking is far stronger than we give ourselves credit for and it’s a shame, because it seems like we can be or have anything we want to as long as we work for it. The law of attraction some would say.

In twenty five years I’ve lived life in the fast lane and stand here before you with no regrets. I’ve done things I’m not proud of, sure, been in situations I can’t talk about, yeah, and have found out first hand that just because you think you hit rock bottom, doesn’t mean you hit rock bottom. I have enjoyed every step I’ve taken so far, I’ve learnt from every mistake I’ve made, and each and every day I feel as though I become a better person than I was yesterday. Evidently it’s all we can do, isn’t it?

In twenty five years, there’s only one thing we can do, and that is love. I’ve been around the block a few times and there hasn’t been anything that has ever got me higher than love. I don’t think there’s any better drug out there than love. I won’t get it twisted, love will definitely bring you to some of your lowest of lows, but they will always be overshadowed by those good days you’ve only dreamt about.

In twenty five years I’ve learnt that we aren’t meant to live this life alone. The best times are those you have someone to share them with. But it’s contradictory because it’s like the only way to find true happiness with someone, you have to actually be happy alone. Only when we can find a way to love ourselves, and only then the rest follow. We have to be able to stare at ourselves in the mirror and be proud of the person staring back at us.

In twenty five years I’ve learnt that life is way too short, even shorter for others, and the only way to live our life to the fullest is to enjoy today. And if you ask me there’s no better way to enjoy today than with your best friend. Someone that will be all yours just as much as you’ll be all of theirs. The best way to spend this life is in love and having them by your side every step of the way, until we inevitably don’t anymore.
