I doubt if there could be any easier way to know thyself. It is undeniably the smallest things that make the biggest difference in our life. What looks like a far fetched dream or an idea to pursue, could be the tonic for your ecstatic escape.
You’d be absolutely stunned to know that trivial changes like these will slowly wear off the big atrocities in your life.
1. Spending time with people
It may or may not click to you right now but it is perhaps one of the biggest reason for repentance. We always think that they’re around, much like close to us, and we just kind of undertake their presence for granted. Go out and meet people who mean to you; their closeness will cast a spell on you.
2. Trying to please people all the time
Planning to study Physics instead of Music, because Sharma Ji’s son just made to IIT? Your heart wants to play the strings on that perky guitar, but you’d rather study cosmic rays. Well No. Do what you want to do and be what you want to be. An “uncurbed” you will be the most beautiful and productive.
3. Waiting for people to say “YES”
All our life we cling onto someone to say yes. Going for a movie, picnic, concert, mall, shopping, food expedition, class etc. Why wait for others to do something that your heart wants you to? The things you give up because of others deserves a second chance, totally. So the next time you cancel on yourself because of others, think again!
4. Learn to say “NO”
That someone is sucking the happiness out of you, that someone is exploiting you almost always and as much as they can, that someone is taking a toll on your life just because you are letting them. Life is too short to please people who aren’t worthy. Learn to say no and stand up for yourself.
5. Waiting for the weekend to enjoy
You had the entire life to enjoy and you kept on procrastinating everything for the weekend. Want to read a book; read now, want to travel; go now, want to go out; go now. It is now or never.
6. Seeing the world on the web, than with your eyes
They clicked 2,000 pictures from their last trip; with memories sans the beauty in their eyes. The subtleties of grandeur lies in the things that your camera can’t capture. It is the sun rays flicking on your tanned hands or the sand particles on your shabby feet, see that. Live in the moment.
7. Becoming harsh in the name of being rebel
Everyone firmly understands that your heart roars to the sound of things which are arcane to others; however, what’s not acceptable is that when you cut arguments with strident words. Prove your point without using words as weapon. Remember, words cut deeper than sword.
8. Not ditching the wrong people at the right time
By doing this back-against- back thing, you continue to feel low and stupid about yourself for longer than usual. There are toxic people in our life who ditch us, who bitch about us, who make us run behind them, who make us whine and a lot worse. Run Forest Run. As Far As You Can.
9. Take care of your health – Exercise
All it takes is just the first 10 days of struggle which will get you through the entire phase. When something brings you down, gather the courage and pull yourself up. ( Something = Your weight ) Work out and stay healthy.
10. Take chances
You have been planning for almost an year to work on your dream plan and that fancy bike that you wanted to buy, well your friend already got one. Also, your distant cousin finally went alone to that trip that you two were planning. Life moves and does not wait for anyone. Don’t be scared of taking chances. Be confident and win the world.
The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance. ~Alan watts
