    A Letter To My Teenage Self.

    I know I have been off from my blog, this week I have only posted once and this is the last post of the week. But I am working on something which I am not sure how successful it will be but still… Trying it out. Anyway, I have always loved letters (and still do) but have never received one and so today I am going to write a letter to my teenage self that I wish someone would’ve told me back then… Dear Teenager Me, Life is not meant to be easy and it’s never going to be. You will have to fight back every odds that will come…

    Y- You are Your Own Super Hero.

    “Why do we fall? So we can learn to pick ourselves back up.”  – Batman Since childhood, we are served with stories about superheroes and fairies and we assume some day some superhero or fairy will come to save us, will come to help us fight problems in our life. But eventually, as we grow we realize more and more that no one is coming to save us, at the end of the day we are left with our own selves and we fight every battle alone. Often when life is testing us very hard we feel we won’t be able to get through this, we all face some phases…

    V- Value Yourself

    “You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection” – Buddha I have talked a lot about self-worth and self-love but is it enough? I don’t think so. Because the problem is we don’t learn self-love and self-worth in a day. Life makes us realize that the love we are finding in this messy world, is already alive within us. We always want to fit in the crowd and so we do whatever we can to fit into the crowd so that we are not left alone. But in this process we forget to value ourselves. It is important to learn to value ourselves and learn…

    S- Stop trying to make everyone around happy!

    Don’t chase people. Be yourself, do your own thing and work hard.Will Smith All our life we are taught to keep everyone around happy. To be kind and helpful. To do and live as per what people do and say. When someone wish to do something different than everyone goes against them why? Because they are not trying to do what is making others happy but what makes them happy and content. We easily label them selfish. When we are told to keep everyone happy we are never told to what extent should one care about others? Till what extent should one try to keep everyone happy? Is it by…

    M- Mental Health is Important.

     “Mental health needs a great deal of attention. It’s the final taboo and it needs to be faced and dealt with.” – Adam Ant So many people today are suffering from depression and much other mental illnesses. We all are trying to survive. We all are getting into health and fitness lifestyle, trying to adapt broccoli, avocado, green tea, black coffee and so much more —-the list is never-ending. But what about our mental health? I think the solution to every mental health is self-love. We are never taught to love our selves and accept our selves the way we are. Since childhood, the one thing we are always pushed is…

    K- Know Your Self.

    “Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.” – Aristotle Life is a journey to learn, experience and explore. We think we know ourselves better but the fact is we keep learning about ourselves throughout our life. What you were in your teenage, you wont be the same in your 20s and what you were at your 20s you wont be the same in your 30s. We keep learning and changing throughout life. Like what was your favourite thing a year back will be replaced by something probably this year or year after. But to know about ourselves and to learn what we are like, we need to keep a…

    Gratitude

    What is Gratitude? Why is it important for us to be grateful? Gratitude is a positive emotion a feeling which we have when we are really grateful for something, be it anything. The definition of Gratitude is as follows by Harvard Medical School, which says that gratitude is: “a thankful appreciation for what an individual receives, whether tangible or intangible. With gratitude, people acknowledge the goodness in their lives … As a result, gratitude also helps people connect to something larger than themselves as individuals – whether to other people, nature, or a higher power”  In most of my previous blog post I have mentioned one common issue we humans…

    Find Happiness Within YOU!

    “Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.” – J.K Rowling wrote these words in my all time favorite book, “Harry Potter Series.” It is true! Happiness can be found in the darkest of times, only if we remember to turn on the light, but where is this light? This light is within you! This happiness is within you. We all have become so depended in life that for everything we need some, we need someone to make us feel special, to compliment us, to make us feel good, to celebrate our victories and special days. We try to…

    Escape

    Life keeps testing us, it keeps testing our patience. There are so many times we feel we just wish to run away from the situation, run away from everything and everyone and there are even times we realize we want to run away from our own selves as well. But we can’t do that right? We can at times find a way to run away from people and even situations but we cannot run away from our own self. But mostly, even when we run away from people or situations there still comes a time when we have to any which way face the situation or people in our life.…

    C- Complaining and Comparison are two monsters of life. Beware!

    “When you complain, you make yourself a victim. Leave the situation, change the situation, or accept it. All else is madness.” Eckhart Tolle I remember when I was a little girl, I hardly used to complain about things. Why? Because for me life was very simple, study, do homework and play. That was my goal back then. And life was truely amazing then. But growing up is a mess, a complete disaster. Especially in this era where everything we do, everything we eat, every where we go is all put up on social media. It becomes a natural instinct to complain and compare our lives with others. But lately I…
