Reflecting on Life

wise advice and books notes to help you live the good life

Start Here!

Hi! I’m Yibo, an Emory University student. Welcome to the Reflecting on Life blog!

I’m excited to talk to you about ways we can improve our lives and become happier. Happiness is the byproduct of pursuing the day to day journey to becoming our “true” selves.

This is blog is for those who love the constant search for a better life. My goal is to give you brief 5-15 minute reads that leave you with actionable and practical advice to help you go through the daily struggles of life.


In highschool, I read a philosophy quote that has stuck with me since:

The unexamined life is not worth living. – Aristotle

The best teacher we have is our own experience. So at night, I set about 10 mins to reflect on my life and think about ways I can improve. Making mistakes and reflecting on them is the best way I know to living a more fulfilling life.

Here are the posts I would recommend if you are a new reader:

With all that said, I’ve found that giving advice can be quite pointless.

Just go live life! One day come back and tell us your stories.
