Encountering something unexpected can be a wonderful thing, like trying on the shirt you didn’t like but it turns out to look super good on you, or going to see the horror movie you thought you’d be scared of but it turned out to be fun. People understand things better after they are exposed to it.
Before you waste another year, stop. Think. Ask yourself what you really want. You can’t have everything. And you can’t complain about not having enough time, because time is all you have. We get one life: no extensions, no replays. Figure out what matters, pursue that goal and let the rest slip away.

“The greatness comes not when things always go good for you. But the greatness comes when you’re really tested, when you take some knocks, some disappointments when sadness comes. Because only if you’ve been in the deepest valley can you ever know how magnificent it is to be on the highest mountain. —- Richard Nixon”—
