"be stubborn about your goals but flexible about your methods." the best advice I’ve ever received.
I work in an elementary school and yesterday I was walking a kindergartener to his class but he wouldn’t stop crying and I asked him what was wrong and he said, “I need to call my grandma because I forgot to tell her that I love her.”
I hate when people say money doesn’t buy you happiness. it does. it buys you financial stability, a nice house, nice cars, nice vacations and trips, healthier food, a better education, etc. like wearing burberry while driving around in an audi would probably make me pretty happy too. but it’s just that rich people often take their comfortable lives for granted and end up being spoiled and ungrateful for what they have
(not that I am rich or anything) but this is why I often pinch myself hard to remind myself to be very very grateful for a nice roof over my head, family members to laugh alongside with, friends to connect with, great food to feast my stomach with, amazing teachers to fill my brain with knowledge and just a sufficiently comfortable life. I know and wholeheartedly believe in the saying that looking at someone else’s plight does not make you feel better about yourself, but sometimes, thinking along that line puts a lot of important things to perspective
