“If your life is worth living, it is worth writing about”
12 lesson, I learnt in these 12 months:
I’ve always whined when I’m not able toperformin a certain task as masterly as others did but now I know that I’m not going to crib over something for which I know I haven’t worked hard as they’ve done.
2.Give it a chance:
As filmy and unreal it sounds, this is something which has become such a salient part of my personality, that I actually don’t do second thoughts anymore.
3.When you’re unable to choose between two: go for the one your heart says you’re sure about.
Close your eyes and think who you’re sure about; who you think was with you when no one else was, and who you’re sure will never leave you even if everything is against you. If you’ve an answer to this, pick that person or that alternative because at least there will be a lesserchanceof feeling devastated later.
4.Don’t lose the diamond while chasing glitter:
In order to find the best, we miss out on the good ones but what if, they are the best for us?
5.Just because it is unorthodox, doesn’t mean it isn’t extraordinary:
Just because you do things differently and in awaythat is unconventional doesn’t mean it’s flawed or fallacious, people will always question your choices but then I think it’s high time we stop thinking about how will we be able toencounterour relatives in family functions with such selections and if you’re sure about it, it’s okay to take a chance.
6.“If it’s not going to matter in the next five years don’t spend more than five minutes on it”:
This has actually become a part of who I am. I was a person who couldn’t stop contemplating about events in my life, or over thinking, I’d call it. I used to waste hours pondering about what others would feel about my actions and then sobbing if things don’t go in my favor, I’ve learned that the things I’m sniveling overnowwouldn’t actually interest me in the next few years.
7.Hating someone doesn’t do any good:
I’ve actually tried this year to stop bitching about people and being sarcastic and sweet to the people I detestand notbeing cheeky because that just makes everything bitter and I’m sure I wouldn’t want to waste my energy over the negatives.
8.Don’t judge someone by theirInstagramprofile:
Best people in my life have lameInstagramprofiles with “blows candles on 26thDecember” or “Hey stalker” but in reality they’re amusing and they definitely help me make my life better if not just myInstagramprofile by giving me memories to cherish.
9.You’ll only matter when it’ll matter the most to you
There was a time this year when suddenly everything started falling apart and I started feeling so low and that’s when I decided that if I want todosomething, I have to make sure that I’m ready to give up anything and because if it is of significance to me, nobody can take it.
10.Don’t give someone your all
Because when you do, if they leave you’re left with nothing and that’s definitely not something you’d want. Also youshould beable to make yourself happy; nobody else should have the power tovalidateyour existence.
11.Don’t forgive someone just because you don’t want to lose them.
This was such an integral learning because most of the time we keep on taking shit from people and we kind of forget our own importance and those people later come with an apology and expect us to forget which we kind of do; so oneshould beable to make out that who’s worth the leniency.
12.Do something every day that lightens up someone’s life:
This is last yet the indispensable. This year I’ve tried to inculcate a habit that each day, I’ll do something that makes someone else smile even if it’s a dog and that has just brought so much optimism and vivacity to my life that it I’ve started to disdain the negatives. And trust me, that feeling is priceless.
