Lesson Learned From A Highlighter

It's necessary for some details to be highlighted while others are better left ignored. Similarly, don't focus much attention on the flaws of people around you, try instead to see their positive traits.

This is one advice that we unintentionally forget to live by. Because it is so much easier to notice people's shortcomings, right?

Luckily, I discovered a technique to overcome this tendency to be a nitpicker.

Learning Fragments

Life is an adventure.That's a fact. No amount of careful planning can prepare anyone for its surprising twists and turns. It has always fascinated the curious child in me, kept the adult me apprehensive, and preoccupied my inner philosopher.

This blog is my attempt to write down my story, contemplate on my struggles and triumphs, make sense of life, and discover my soul in the process.

I am writing this for myself, for my sanity. I'm certain that I still have to face a lot of challenges and failures -- challenges that would make me forget how to be strong; failures that would make my self-esteem wither and even shatter my hopes and dreams. When that time comes, and I know it will, this blog would remind me that life is wonderful despite pain, and trials are conquerable no matter how tough.

This blog is also for anyone who, by a quirk of fate, would come across this blog and find meaning in what I have to say. It is part of our nature to empathize with one another. I believe that the lives of the 7 billion people in the world are interconnected. Somehow, at some points, our stories converge. We are overwhelmed by the same emotions, bothered by parallel thoughts, and moved by the same call of passion.

There are priceless lessons waiting for us each day. Sometimes we are too preoccupied  that we miss to notice real treasures of life, which are concealed by their simplicity.

Life lessons are fragments, scattered in different places and situations from various people and objects. They could be hidden in a book, expressed in a line of a song, portrayed in movies, overheard at the grocery store, manifested through an interaction with a stranger, etched in memories...They are everywhere, if we only take time to observe. We must collect as many fragments as we can to make our journey through life meaningful.

I hope to enjoy my journey collecting learning fragments with you!
