The Art of Learning

"The important thing is not to be bitter over life's disappointments. Learn to let go of the past... and recognize that everyday won't be sunny. And when you find yourself lost in the darkness and despair... remember it's only in the black of night you can see the stars, and those stars will lead you back home. So don't be afraid to make mistakes, to stumble, to fall, cause most of the time the greatest rewards come from doing the things that scare you the most. Maybe you'll get everything you wish for... Maybe you'll get more than you ever could have imagined... Who knows where life will take you. The road is long and in the end... the journey is the destination."
One Tree Hill


I wonder why there isn't some kind of list with rules about how to live life. I mean... it would be helpful am I right? If, out there, some kind of manuscrit with rules appeared, hundreds of people would want a copy of that book, because, c'mon, let's face it.. nobody knows exactly what's the point of life, in general..

Some kind of guide should exist. You know why? Because we need some guidelines... let's see..

How can we possibly know what to do when we have to make a decision that will change our future, no matter what?! How can we be absolutely sure that we'll choose the right one and not be wondering for the rest of our lifes "what if"?

And how about when we have a really good friendship with someone, a relationship when we call each other great/best friend or other, and we want to help the other someone and we just don't know how? And I don't mean help related to money, favors, or anything like that.. I'm talking about being able to help our friend when he/she is passing through a hard time because everything seems senseless to him/her and all we want to do for that person is make all the problems disappear and make their lifes a little bit better.

Don't forget about that thing called "love" either. A couple of guidelines to help us through the process of falling in love, of feeling insecure on a relationship, on the feeling on not to know how to move on, or how to start a relationship would be precious too. During teen years, it would be really awesome? Feel some kind of help for when we are confused and don't know who's the person we are liking in that special way. And not only in teen years, but during all life, being able to understand how can we categorize a feeling as true love? How can someone say its true love? Is there a definition out there that I'm not aware of? Does everybody define it in the same way?

But, no matter what, we must live our lifes the best way possible, in our own way and with our own thoughts.

Yes, no matter if you find your soulmate, if you have best friends, if you are rich and have everything you ever wanted, because, in the end, the truth is the same to everybody. Life isn't always a fairytale. Life isn't alway something sweet. There are disappointments, there are dark moments, sadness appears a couple of times, and those are things we avoid.

However, we can't give up! No matter the darkest moments we may have, we must make the good moments memories worth to remember, memories that can stand above all the bad memories. Don't forget, our mistakes are useful to learn what not to make in the future, our mistakes are little lessons; and yes, forget the past (or at least part of it because the past its what define our character too) and just try to make the decisions you consider the best so you can reach to your final destination and be able to say that you've accomplished what you desire the most.
