Recurring lesson or reminder? Yes or no?

Sometimes, we are stubborn people that needed to be reminded more than a couple of times on the same particular thing. Well, I think I am that kinda people, that’s why I am always being placed in the same-almost-similar kinda situation. Over and over again. I thought I've learned my lesson but oh man I didn’t. 

Like right now, I am in the middle of reading journals for my final year project yet here I am, updating my blog. Getting distracted even though I know pretty well that I am so going to regret this decision but still, I write haha. Stubborn or in other words, egoistic-self-prove-that-thinks-her-world-is-different-than-others-so-things-gonna-change-just-for-her hahahaha *apa benda aku mengarut ni* 

Anyways, I was saying that sometimes, things happened repeatedly because we have not yet learned the lesson from the incident. The typical-cliché example would be falling in love and failing in love. It is not in our desire to fail in love, in a relationship but the same thing happen again and again, yet we're still doing the same thing again and again so how? What lesson are we not learning? Nope, I'm not here to give you relationship advice(s) because I am terrible at it haha so yeah, go find them somewhere else 'cause I am sure there are tons of people who are generous in giving those kinda advice!

There are times when we claimed that we learned our lessons but oh man, come on, it's hard to change a habit. Though I am not really sure which one is tougher, developing a new habit or killing an old habit? Regardless, that's why I think we needed the recurring reminder. We tend to forget things when we are busy in our daily activities, whether it be studying or working, we always forget the things we wanted to change. Sometimes, we even had too many on our lists and by the end of the year, somehow, nothing was accomplished. Why? Because we are living this life in auto-pilot mode and we tend to forget things. This is possible to happen to us for a long time if we keep dismissing the recurring reminders that came in so many forms and ways. 

Don't get me wrong, but this post is a recurring post for me. To remind me that there are lessons in this life that I haven't learn and taken deep inside myself. As I was reading Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom, I was reminded of the importance to revalue some of the things in my life. For example, fame is not important, it would suck your life if you are so into finding fame, well, at least not everyone is born to be famous, so live a little and take a break. Being famous and annoyingly stingy wouldn’t bring you any closer to people's heart. Yes, the more obvious lesson to me, was to be kinder to others.

I didn’t get quite yet the art of being kind without being misunderstood. Maybe I am still selective and still, have borders when I am kind, maybe that's what I have to change. Maybe I have just to keep being kinder to others and force myself to it that sooner or later it come naturally? But oh boy, it is so hard to remain calm and collected when someone totally refused your help and dismiss your offer immediately. 

Oh oh oh! And on patience! 

Haha, but I guess, this one is exceptional to present itself to me every day, most of the time and probably gonna stick with me for a looooooooooooong time. Just look at my name, hahaha. 

Right, I should get back to reading my journals, at least one or two for tonight. Write again soon!
