I guess it’s about time to change my age in the About section. 😛
28 things learnt by 28 :
Learn to love your life and yourself.
No matter how messed up you or your life may seem (or people say) there’s always something unique about you. Be grateful.
Chocolates, books and music can lift your mood.
In that order.
The sunrise, the sunset and the moon are three beauties that come to you everyday.
Learn to appreciate it.
Never stop learning.
One who stops learning becomes old. One who keeps learning stays young.
Improve. Mature. But never “grow up”
Make sure you never lose the inner child in you.
Smile when you wake up and forgive people before you sleep.
For your own peace of mind.
Eat, sleep, laugh and talk moderately.
But smile a lot! Smile and shine!
Give charity and gifts regularly.
It doesn’t matter whether it’s small or big.
Make time for your family. Family is very important.
Love them. Serve them. Be with them.
Make sure you spend some time with people below 7 and above 70 regularly.
They know the magic to make you feel better.
Tell your parents you love them. You may not have the chance later.
And I mean, tell them! Like, tell them on their face, “I love you pappa” or “I love you mummy” You have no idea about the regret of letting them go without letting them know.
Spend a day without your phone. Spend another without looking at the clock.
Experience the slow-mo life!
Selfishness is a virtue.
Stop crying about how bad your life is.
It isn’t. Even if it is, get up and make it better.
Spend time with people who support and believe in you.
And be that person for others.
It’s the only thing that money can buy that makes you richer.
Do yourself a favour and follow your passion.
Figure out what lights your fire and then chase the match.
When in doubt, always ask mom.
She carried you safely for nine months. Trust her.
Not everybody will like you. So stop trying to please everyone and get with it.
After all you are not the centre of the world.
Chivalry is not just for men.
Courtesy before chivalry.
Listen to your body.
It talks to you. It really does!
Think before you speak and read before you think.
So basically, read more, speak less.
Let makeup empower you.
But never be ashamed of your natural self. Believe in your beauty.
Drink more water.
Then your skin, hair, mind, body will thank you.
First impressions are worthless 50% of the time.
So try not to judge people over that.
Never cease dating your spouse.
That’s a fine way to keep the spark alive!
Dream, dare and droll.
Get a wishbone, a backbone and a funnybone.
Beauty lies in the green of trees.
“Nature” is what we see—
The Hill—the Afternoon—
Squirrel—Eclipse—the Bumble bee—
Nay—Nature is Heaven—
Nature is what we hear—
The Bobolink—the Sea—
Nay—Nature is Harmony—
Nature is what we know—
Yet have no art to say—
So impotent Our Wisdom is
To her Simplicity.
The sun rose and knocked,
We left for a morning walk
I saw a squirrel on a tree,
Swear it stopped and smiled at me.
The songs of birds at first light,
The freshness of the day,
The shadows of the early sunrise,
And the clean, crisp air
There is so much to see
The flowers, the birds, the honeybee
The grass under my feet
All of those await me.
But I stay and gaze
At the scurrying squirrel
And his faithful friends
Observing their eccentric ways
One makes a funny noise,
I laugh aloud, it runs away
They go round n round
Scuttle to and fro
Aimlessly digging holes in the ground
When everything else fails,
They chase their very own tails!
That is what they do,
Just like me and you
They save for winter
But never forgets how,
To live for the moment,
To enjoy the now
And that’s how squirrels are clever,
Than humans can be ever!
There was a time when I never used to let the sun catch me asleep.
The morning sunshine, the koel’s song or even the rooster’s crowing had a calming effect.
Just let the sun’s first rays adorn your face and brighten your day!
Then I grew out of the habit. Because, life.
After many months, I felt the magic of sunrise again.
The beauty of nature, the tranquility of mornings, is inexpressibly blissful.
