30 it is!

The end of my 30 BEFORE 30 journey! Can't believe that I have made a very long project :) Two years! I haven't accomplished everything on my list, but yet I still feel so very happy because I have write off most of the challenging things. I have made my first tattoo, which mean I can do another one (yay!) and I did take my mum on a mother and daughter holiday :)

Well, the next posts will be the post about what I did that I haven't published yet.
So here comes a new decade for me :) I know it will be great!

The Rhythm of Life

I've come to the last month before my 30th birthday. Since my project started two years ago, I think I've accomplished so much. It's not the many things I've done on my list, because it's not completed yet, but it's about how far I've became. For the past two years, I've became a little bit more crazier, which is a great sign because I can enjoy life a little bit more, but most important is that I started to know more about myself. It's really a great thing if you know about yourself, not from what people think or say about you, but it's more about what you feel about yourself. This life is a long journey, and the more I know about myself, the more I know the rhythm that my heart and body can follow. I've considered that I'm a slow rhythm kind of person. I love to stop and enjoy the moment and I'm not comfortable in any rush of things. The more people push me to rush things, the more likely I would fall down and usually hurt myself (and my heart).

Thinking of that, I kinda wonder why people nowadays like to rush things? I know it's a demand to earn a living you have to be the fastest, the most improved person, the one that makes the big numbers, and so on... but after you got those numbers, or being the fastest, other people will do more and more and it's an never ending. And it's okay to have done that once in your life, we have to experience things to know how it really is, but considering doing that kinda thing for decades? That's about the scariest thing I could think of. Yet lots of people are doing that. I would like to share a short story from Paulo Coelho's book "Like the flowing river":

The Funny Thing About Human Beings

A man asked my friend Jamie Cohen: 'What is the human being's funniest characteristics?' Cohen said: 'Our contradictoriness. We are in such a hurry to grow up, and then we long for our lost childhood. We make ourselves ill earning money, and then spend all our money on getting well again. We think so much about our future that we neglect the present, and thus experience neither the present nor the future. We live as if we were going to die, and die as if we had never lived.
