"The wise men do not get older, they ripen." -Victor Hugo
Be bold, live intentionally. Don't waste your time hiding or keeping yourself from the experiences, things and people you want or that matter. At your youth, take adventure, discover the unknown, think of the infinite possibilities, choices, that one can make at any given time... and ponder the paths and other choices and split offs that could lead to.
Be authentic, be self: Every person is unique. Trust your intuition more and take time to celebrate the victories and achievements, but also appreciate the failures and set-backs; because the victory can let you taste a moment of joy, but the failure can test your resilience and life profundity; Do not sweat the small stuff! Be humbled about life -it is precious, mysterious, energetic and poetic, it is like a moon with full and wax; it is like a tide, with rise and wane; and it is like a hill, there's up and down, live it with its original rhythm, and catch up with it with unique speed.
Let life flow out of comfort zone; to discover the new scenes, and experience the uncertainty: if you never hit the crisis point - the point in which you sense the opportunity in the risks; and you discover the path full of barriers, you may never truly experience the life. Flow over the mountains- even it seems to be over; flow to the shores -even it might be running out of the path; Suddenly, you discover the new scenes - the shadow of trees, the color of flowers, and here comes to the new village - the fresh chapter of life, just enjoy it. And whenever you hit a setback, raise your expectations, use imagination, and work harder and smarter to keep the arc of your like and career on an upward path. Otherwise, you journey will be defined by your setbacks rather than your achievements.
When the life is stretched out to the new level of experience, it can not go back to the old dimension. Just like a little water drop merging into the sea, it is no longer just a simple and single drop of water, it has experienced the profundity of deep ocean. Do what you feel is right for you. Use your head, follow your heart, believe in yourself. Be confident. Take chances, learn from your failures. Don't take things at face value, check them out before you do them. Buy less, save more. Add to the Joy by joining the chorus of those who have found the music of meaning in their life and be delightful in expressing that melody!
Not just get older, but become wiser as well. The older, wiser you would have the insight you may lack of right now, or even be in a different situation personally, emotionally and mentally, still, the simple advice is -be thyself, be bold and be comfortable of being who you really are.
