Life Lessons

This is a Movella filled with life lessons. It's not a story, or full of poems. It is simply full of what I've learnt from life, and what others have learnt.


2. Take the Bull by the Horns

This is something I definitely need to do more of. Just take the bull by the horns. I keep procrastinating, and I'm finding more and more that the things I want most are slowly slipping away from me.

For example, although I promised one of my friends that I would go on a boy detox (it's a long and hideous story), last night I had two ex-crushes in close capacity. One, I'm over, and I know I shouldn't even go there, the other, I still have feelings for. Saying that he's an idiot and I hate him is kind of my way of getting through it. But seeing him, and sharing eye-contact, with smiles, was a huge thing. It made me fall for him again.

All night, another one of my friends who knew about this certain boy, who shall not be named, kept telling me to go and say 'hi' to him, but I denied the fact that I wanted to talk to him. Even though I did want to talk to him. Badly. She kept pushing and pushing, telling me that she would go and talk to him if I didn't. But that never happened, and I didn't speak to him either. We knew each other were there, but I was too scared to do what I wanted to do. I wish I'd taken the bull by the horns and gone up to him and talked to him.

It's mainly things like that that I have a problem dealing with. Bidding for things at auction and trying new activities, I quite happily throw myself into, but anything to do with boys, I freeze.

So my message to you guys is: don't be like me and procrastinate. If you want to do something, no matter how scared you are, do it, because I know all too well the bitter taste of defeat after not doing what I wanted.
