I will never regret this......
YOLO! “You only live once”. This is something very popular everywhere as we are reminded that life isn't all about wallowing in pain or torturing yourself over a heartbreak or loss of a loved one, or even taking a decision that turned the other way round for you, in which you do not expect it to happen that way.
Life is all about making mistakes, that is normal, but it becomes pathetic for you when you choose to remain isolated because of the way things had become about you. There's no way to learn anything that way.
Some of the things we are doing today, make us regret the terrible decision we made yesterday, even though some are deliberate and some are not. By the time, you start seeing the result, you bite your fingers and be like “I shouldn't have done this”, “I wouldn't have chosen this path if not for....”, “I could have just gone this way then...”
But, it's not the end of the world! We just need to pull ourselves together, get up, learn from bad decisions and errors, and become something new. Everybody's got a choice.
The one thing I will never regret in my life is following my passions.
Passion differs from purpose. We must understand both, because what you enjoy is not the same as what you are called to do. We only arrived on this earth to choose our passions. This is something you would like to commit your life to doing, regardless of what obstacles might present themselves to you because you enjoyed doing it.
I am passionate about teaching and becoming a writer.
I don't think I would ever want to regret taking this path of my journey in life because with these two things, I am passionate about them and I wouldn't hesitate to go the extra length to have my way surviving with both.
Sometimes my Big Sis made me think I wasn't serious about my life because of some of the things she wants me to do and focus on. Ever since I tried to explain to her that this is not my strong suit, she still wants us (my other siblings and I) to go that way.
She wants the best for her younger ones, which I do not and will not dispute the fact about it, and she wants us not to settle for less, but it's high time she understood that we all have our different ways.
Do I want to confuse my readers? Tsk! Sniffles! Wait and read on because I'm going to explain my point of view clearly and concisely. 😎
The need to enter the digital world with skills is what she always stressed about, and not just a skill, but to learn how to code and become a programmer. The first day I heard her telling me this, I laughed and she could read the expression on my face that day saying “that way isn't for me at all.” She still doesn't believe I work presently when I keep telling her, I am surviving by being a content creator online.
OK, to satisfy her, I took a course in online website development and I informed her that I'm already on it. She was really happy and guided me to major courses to take.
My fellow readers! I was getting along with this HTML code which I found fascinating enough, but to my greatest surprise, I never knew I was taken from a simple illustration to a complex one and I noticed, that I stopped having time for what I am passionate about, which is writing and being active online.
I entered the CSS (Cascading Style Sheet) code, but believe me, I couldn't proceed. My head was spinning and I began to have headaches and body temp. This was when I knew, that's not my forte at all, but writing and teaching, because I discovered that I'm good, and that I can express myself through both.
I gave up the course and started taking classes to become a better blogger and writer. Until now, I have learned a great deal from the courses I have taken, and I continue to go further. I never knew there was more to writing than this one I make, and I can't wait to explore more areas on it.
With this being said, I don't think I will ever regret following my passions in both teaching and writing because I find myself sitting and relaxing comfortably on them instead of the website development of a thing.
I went for the second option which reads thus;
Below is the beginning of a sentence which you need to finish. Explain what the thing is and why you answered as you did.
- "The one thing I will never regret in my life is..."
Thank you for your time
