You won't Remember if You Passed Your Final with a 78% or a 98%
[Get out there] see the world and immerse yourself in new adventures. Because I guarantee you, when you’re eighty seven you won’t remember the square footage of your too-expensive home. You won’t remember laying on the couch watching a Netflix series for the third time over. You won’t remember the twenty-sixth time you got drunk at that same local pub with the same bartender who knows you by your nickname.
You won’t remember if you passed your final with a 78% or a 98%.
You won’t remember the overtime hours you put in to pay off your fancy SUV, and you won’t even remember that SUV. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀
But you will think about the time you got lost halfway across the world in your favourite city. You will remember the little old local guy who sat next to you on the plane, his best efforts at English and the amazing little sushi restaurant he recommended to you.
You will remember the times you pushed yourself to try something new and how happy you were that you did.
You will remember the beautiful smiles of the people you meet and the spark in their eyes when they talk about their passion in life. You will remember thinking to yourself that the human race is a lot more alike than it is different. You will remember watching the sunset halfway across the world.. and dancing barefoot on dewy grass as the sun is coming up with your sixth newly-refilled glass of cheap wine. You will remember the smiles and extra long hugs you receive when you return home to your friends and family
and how special you are to them. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ❥ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s often too late that people realize these are the moments that make you feel alive...and in the very end whether that be in 5 years or 60... those memories will be the only valuable possessions you’ve ever truly owned.
