We don’t usually see ourselves in our other side, I mean from our normal routine, thus we just see something that totally varies from what we normally do. We tend to act as if everyday is another normal day – breakfast, traffic off to work, pressure for job quotas, family time and rest. Then suddenly when something is not going the right way, we will hardly think what’s making our world go haywire.
Right now, I’m loosing my sense of maturity – gripping tightly to nothing. I’m not one of the idiots who are just talking shit behind my back not even acknowledging that they are missing few points in their way lives.
I remember a friend telling me that I need not to be sad when this is happening for this is a reality that everyone will encounter no matter if he is the most powerful man alive.
Most of the time, I don’t really mind if I will have a good day or not. I am the kind of person who seems to enjoy going and riding into the flow of events happening around me. But now, this has been a scheme that I want to remove off my system. And, I’ll kill myself if I can’t have it deleted off my hard drive. I need to learn how to be matured – again, or I will self destruct.
Maturity is a sense of being. Its a portion of our ego telling us that we can be this and that as we please. If we can be matured enough, we can isolate a normal day from the not so good one and pass it with flying colors. We will not have a hard time thinking why this and that happened. But how can someone be a master of this sense?
Here is my perspective, the virtues of maturity as I may say.
M is for Mindfulness. The first and the most important of all the virtues. This a way of thinking where in all angles are being considered. It’s never one-sided. It’s alive, it’s working and most importantly, its assumptive and reasonable.
A is for being Adaptive. Adaptation is a way of living. It’s a positive form of adjusting to an environment. If one can adjust then nothing will fall backwards. At a regular rate, one can adjust to a new environment after a week while a matured one can do it in a day with out a hassle.
T is for Tactfulness. A thinker who can adjust always needs to be keen of his words. Mature people think more and speak less. When they speak its full, timely and worth the wait. Tactfulness are masters of any jargon, they know what to say. The words are always clearly spoken and well chosen.
U is for Unambitious. Who does not aimed high? There is. The matured ones. They don’t aim high but they aim more than enough, just up to a level of a certain objective. Aiming too much is always the root of failing. Aim enough, be unambitious.
R is nothing but for Readiness. Being matured is the same thing as being prepared at all cost. Being ready is virtue that needs time – I’ll say huge time. This is a permanent investment – can’t be sold nor can be bought.
I is Individuality. The sense of independence. The feeling of being alone. The state of standing in your own two feet. This is a measure of one’s capability to do things on his own. A way of solely owning a responsibility – taking all risk and all possible chances to overcome an issue positively arriving to a resolution.
T is one’s Talents. Fortunate are those who have a lot of these. Lucky are those who utilized their’s as a way of living. Singing and dancing are the common thoughts of these but there are more to consider: being quiet, sense of leadership, writing prowess and deductive reasoning are the bosses among all talents. Are you one of us?
Lastly, Y is in YOU… Inside you is your self maturity. A baby inside you that needs nourishment every second, every minute, every hour and everyday! Upgrade your own self and be matured enough.
No one can beat a matured player. Bearing this in mind will constantly remind you that there is no one else in this world to unmatched but your own self.
Learn how to be matured. Little steps will be bigger and bigger. Crawl if you need to learn in the absence of anything, breathe if you need to learn how to stop and fly if you need to sky dive head first if you need to die not learning from same mistake of immaturity.
