Everyone wants everything in life that makes them happy. We as humans always chase behind a perfect life. What is perfect life? Do you think you will satisfy even after you get everything in life? We can plan what we want, but sometimes life does not go our way.
“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.” ~ Maya Angelou
When my age increases, I began searching for the meaning of a peaceful life. At one point, I realised that we will not get the same things with other people. God owes us nothing but gives us everything.
How do I define my successful life? We all have our stories, don’t we? Nothing much, mine is just journey of my 20 years life.
When I was 12 years old, I thought getting straight As in UPSR is everything. I even assume that life would be worse if I did not pass in UPSR successfully. Yeah, my mind set, 12 years old mind set. But I was wrong, it was just a test and the result is the proof that I have completed my primary school life successfully. Everything has changed but my ambition was remaining same.
Same things happened to me when I was 15 years old, PMR time. I thought my life was gone and there was no second chance for me. It could be said 2011 was a tragic year for me. I said like this I always so stubborn on my goals.In other words, I don’t want to fail in everything I do even though I know life has ups and down. Again, everything has changed, one is unchanged, yeah it was my ambition.
After two years of trying hard for my last and big examination(SPM) in secondary school, what followed in the next year was a mixture of failure, heart break, frustration, anger, and disappointment again. This time I felt like everything had come to the end. I was nothing compared to my seniors. What others think of me is the perfect girl, but deep inside I felt I’m so useless to be a creature in this world. But still, I stay on my ambition firmly.
After completing my secondary life, my friends and I were busy on applying for universities to further our studies. Even some have started to work once they have completed their school life. After completing secondary school, we already moved to different directions and paths to pursue our studies. I was so happy to receive the course I have applied for and I thought I have succeeded.
Then, I always aim to become rich before I turn 27. I thought this is the definition of success.
I also aim to be a professional blogger before I turn 25. Blogging is always my passion for now and forever. I thought this is the meaning of successful life.
I always think deeply about my path of my life, on my bed. I would say it is a great place to make a decision. I told to myself this is not enough, I have to get dean list and 1st class honour and I want to prove that I can do it to my parents and to those who look down to me. I thought this is the meaning of successful life.
And even some people define their successful life is by owning a classy car, huge house and not to forget a super duper beautiful or handsome life partner. How about me? -_-
Now, for the first time, I started to question myself that why some people do not get a job they qualify even they have completed their degree life successfully? Why some people can’t have everything even they are so rich? Why we come to this world? Why some people chase behind a luxuries life? Is it a meaning of successful life?
I turn twenty this year and I thought when I’m twenty, my life will change like I wanted but it’s not. I have realized that my actions are my choice.
