Blogtember: 5 September

5 September.
Pass on some useful advice or information you learned and always remembered. 

At my ripe old age of 28, I’ve learnt a few things and been through experiences to value the lessons I have learnt. I don’t know much but I do know this…

Trust your instinct.

Male or female, young or old, no matter what your situation or circumstance. I truly believe in trusting your instinct. I believe it is God’s way of talking to us and He knows best.

Listen to that inner voice. Always. Be it a small ache in your body, a child’s scream, a long lost friend needing you, a wrong turn, a cheating partner, saying no… Listen to that voice and you can not go wrong.

Always be yourself.

None of us are perfect. And we all want to change something/s about ourselves. And change and improving is always good. But don’t be someone that you aren’t or that you don’t want to be. Don’t change for a partner, a friend, a boss or colleague or an in-law. Always try and be your best but stay true to yourself and who you are.

What valuable lessons can you share?

  1. LOVED these – I agree wholeheartedly! Especially as a parent, we need to trust our intuition about what is right. Because it usually is! Regarding changing into someone else – It is a pet peeve of mine when people are constantly changing to suit the situation or company they are with. I always call those kinds of people chameleons – blending in to match whatever environment they find themselves in! Great post, thanks for sharing!

  2. I read all about you on Claudz's blog today and thought I would come by for a visit!

    I totally agree with that first one (well, I agree with all of them, but especially that one!). I really can't be bothered with fake people who act like someone else, depending on the situation they're in!

  3. I agree with you on everything! Especially about the first one. My instincts have never failed me. There were times when I didn't listen to my instincts or that tiny voice in my head giving me and advice only to tell myself in the end that I should've listened to my instincts. =)
