Enjoy the process!

It has been almost 10 months since I graduated. Stepping into a new world with a new reality, people say it would be hard but you should pass it. Working life is a term that has been well-known for a long time. A real phase to implement what I have been learning since kindergarten, a real phase to find what life is, and the most important thing a real phase to know who exactly I am. And it is definitely hard.

3 years ago when the university’s chaos started to appear, I just said to myself to finish this university life as soon as possible like extinguish fire. Yes, It was true. Extinguish fire that incarnate as ego in our heart. Sometimes, people just deal with their life with ego to jump out into a beautiful point without passing the process. The rainbow never appears before rain, doesn’t it? I think it is the same with life on a road map, always tracking on hills and valleys before arriving at a beautiful place. Enjoy the process! A simple sentence that I always hear but do not hear with heart to be contemplated.

Regret comes in the end, but Hilary Clinton said

“Life is too short, time is too precious, and the stakes are too high to dwell on what might have been.”

So, just start to enjoy the process more than never. I am sure there are many experiences in every process that will shape you to face the future.

“ Don’t run too fast to finish until your ankle is sprung but run while enjoying your surrounding scenery until you know why you should reach the finish point”

talking to myself.
