I’m 20 today! I feel old lol. Anyways here are 20 things I’ve learned in 20 years of living.
1. Keep your circle small.
I’ve always read that keep your friend circle small the happier you’ll be. I didn’t realize it until a few months ago. Friendship is something that God leaves to you to decide whom to pick. And I have definitely learned A LOT not just from one buy MANY…
2. Surround yourself with uplifting people those who have the same vibes as you.
This point again links to the 1st one. I’ve realized the importance of surrounding as many like-minded people as possible. It can really make you or break you. Surrounding yourself with the people you love & those who lift the spark in you, don’t leave them.
3. The family is the most important thing.
Enough said right?
4. Never give up on your dreams.
At times it’ll feel ridiculously difficult even impossible at times but you’ve created those dreams for yourself. Your gut, your intuition, your conscious mind is telling you to follow them. Never give up for someone or even for yourself.
5. The only person is going to be with you is YOU.
We enter into this planet alone and we die alone. This whole life is about YOU. It’s your journey then why think about others and changes your decisions, change your opinions for someone else who might not be on your journey for a longer period of time. Think about yourself, I’m not telling you to be selfish and but be self-concerned. Think about what’s right & wrong for you.
6. Do what you love.
Always do something that you love, I can not tell you how much of a difference that it makes to be doing something that you love every day without feeling the burden in your chest & feeling bored.When you do something which you love, you have 1 less thing to worry about.
7. Work hard but also smart.
Nowadays you not only have to work hard to achieve your dreams but also work smarter that way you’re more likely to achieve them faster.
8. Always be a morning person.
Nothing is more amazing than finishing your tasks before time and getting an hour or 2 free! If you wake up early & hustle hard it’s gone before you even know it!
9. Believe in magic.
This is hard for people to believe but think about it this way. You reading this are miles and miles away from me, you must be living in the same city as me if not another city if not another country. You’re reading my thoughts which I put on a web page which is visible on a large rectangular piece of metal called the laptop & with the help of a weird vibration called the Internet you can talk with me, read my thoughts sitting miles & miles away. Also what freaks me out more is how babies grow in a women’s womb. Imagine from where does the infant gets the organs the mass on the body, eyes! Heart! Now don’t tell me that tissues develop and blah blah blah I know! But it’s still so magical that God has created something so beautiful. Just trust the God or Universe & it’ll all fall in place for you.
10. You don’t have to figure it out all at once.
We feel like we have to know everything about ourselves & figure out everything at once, I constantly get in this rut where I’m like I need to know everything but that’s completely okay if you don’t figure it out all at once. The Universe will reveal everything at the correct time.
11. Your thoughts are your everything.
Radiate positive thoughts, I can not stress on how freaking important it is to think positive & how a hell of a difference can your thoughts can change your perspective. As I mentioned earlier I was feeling in this rut but then I talked with a few friends & then I just transformed into this sudden boost of positivity & creativity. Can you guess what time I’m writing this blog post? It’s 2:00 am. haha. Just one change in direction of your thoughts can change so many things 🙂
12. Give more.
I always believe in giving more because when you give more you get more. And it’s just not about just giving it’s about giving positive things, giving positive vibes. If you give bad vibes how can you expect to receive good things happen to you?
13. Spend time with people.
Today we live in such an environment where we don’t know what will happen to anyone. You may never know when will be the last time you’ll meet them so just spend time with whoever you meet. Spend some time talking with them, listen to them just talk random things, you won’t regret it.
14. Health = Wealth.
If you’d ask me last year during this time about my views & opinions towards health, I probably won’t care much. But now my views have completely changed about one’s health. I can not agree more on health =wealth, I’ve seen it, I’ve experienced it. Take it this way, we constantly eat stuff we’re always putting food of which we don’t even know if the ingredients used are good for your body or not. Our body is constantly working for us. Imagine if you want to run a marathon but the physical condition isn’t stable for you to run a marathon, ouch right? To fulfill your dreams to do stuff you not only need to be physically present but also mentally present. If your health is stable you can do anything & everything you want.
15. You’ll Grieve forever.
This year I’ve lost a loved family member. Never have I ever felt the tremendous amount of sorrow. It was heartbreaking & I’d never want anyone to go through what he went through in his life. I’ve read this somewhere and it basically sums up what I really want to convey. “The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not ‘get over’ the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will heal and you will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will never be the same. Nor should you be the same, nor would you want to.”
16. Nobody is perfect.
We all have the things which we’re really good at & we have the things which we’re not so good at. Society judges you so much from what you don’t have / lack of. Admire the fact that we’re all imperfect humans & live & let live.
17. Stand up for yourself.
Talking from a business perspective, you really have to stand up for yourself. No one’s going to be like you have to do it and that. No one’s going to wait for you, you really have to grab the opportunity before anyone else does.
18. Good things always come out of Comfort Zone.
No matter how hard I try to be in my comfortable bubble, I’m constantly made realized that all the things which I want to achieve in my life all are out of my comfort zone. It scares me so much but sometimes I’m excited to step out & do something which I’ve always scared to do.
19. Travel more.
One of the things I’m really looking forward in my life is to travel more. I do get travel sick & feel terribly home sick but hey good things always come out of comfort zone right?! I have Pins & Pins of places I want to explore & just be there, be in the moment & enjoy. That’s gonna happen soon!
20. Be fueled by Passion & Love.
Passion & love are such strong feelings. Instead of letting the bad energy get to you, replace it with passion & love. Those emotions are so powerful, use them to fulfill yourself. If you think negative & you constantly keep putting negative stuff in your mind you’ll feel sad, miserable. So I always try to boost myself with these emotions, they’ve really helped me to stay productive.
So yeah, these were the things I’ve learned in 20 years of living. A lot of my happiness comes from the above things & there’s so much more to learn, I’m excited for my journey ahead 🙂
