Little Reminders for Every Human Being on 2014


It’s that time of the year again. We rearrange, change and scratch things off our New Year’s Resolution list. We get another take to make this year a better one. We forgive, we reconcile, we open our hearts again. We clean up the messes we made - the ones in our kitchen counter, on our bedroom floor, in someone’s life or in one’s heart. We, once again, start off in a clean slate. In short, we’re on the Do-over part.

Below is a list for when we stick the keys back into the ignition and starting up all over again.

  1. Be healthy, not because it’s trendy but because it’s good for you

  2. When we try to kick someone’s ass, sometimes we end up hurting ours

  3. Listening is not hearing

  4. At the end of the game, the Pawn and the King goes on the same box

  5. Trust is fragile, don’t let it slip away for something temporary

  6. Emotions does not make you weak

  7. It’s better to be embarrassed for a day than to live in regret

  8. Getting old is not an excuse to not do what you want to do

  9. To truly live, you must at least do something you really love but no one truly agrees with

  10. Just because it’s broken doesn’t mean it’s useless

  11. Family, at the end of the day, are the only ones that ever had your back

  12. Bad things come to teach you the difference between the good ones

  13. Go for things that make you uncomfortable because only until then can you grow

  14. If you don’t stop touching it, it could never heal

  15. You hold the roots of your happiness, learn to let it grow and harvest

  16. Dreams should initially be lived not in moments, but in a lifetime

  17. The sunset comes to remind us that what was in the light could be dawned upon

  18. The sunrise tells us that while it’s dark for now, the better days are coming

Happy New Year, Little Earthlings
