You are exactly where you are meant to be right now.
Do not compare your journey to anyone else’s; yours is a wildly different journey up an entirely different mountain.
If you were meant to be higher up your mountain, you would be.
There might be more you need to learn from this spot before you can keep climbing.
There might be something you need to see here before you continue forward.
Maybe you are simply meant to rest before the journey ahead.
Regardless of where you are on your path, know that the rest of your story will unfold when it is time.
Until then, enjoy your beautifully unique climb.
Certain things i wish i knew sooner:
1. If taking care of yourself means letting someone down, then let someone down.
2. Never let rejection lead to self-rejection.
3. What happened yesterday may not be your responsibility, but how you behave today is upto you.
4. Obsessing over the things that society said you’re supposed to do will kill your happiness.
Everyone is different and your path to happiness will be different too.
5. My low maintenance relationships are my strongest.
6. If you want to enjoy your life, don’t subscribe to other people’s definition of ‘fun‘.
Your fun belongs to you, make sure you define it.
7. Stop expecting honesty from people who lie to themselves.
People who are inconsistent aren’t going anywhere in their life, stop planning a journey with them.
8. If you learn to read books, you can be smart.
If you learn to read yourself, you can be anything.
The real glow up is when you stop waiting to turn into some perfect version of yourself & consciously enjoy being who you are in the present.
More than anything I really believe we are put here on this earth to enjoy the time we have.
Life is precious so don’t get hung up or bent out of shape over the small stuff.
Enjoy the present moment and have fun, whatever that means to you.
Enjoy free time with family and friends.
Enjoy a laugh and make some memories.
Enjoy learning & making people feel the goodness of life.
Life is fun, let it be.
(This instagram post got nothing to do with the post above. Shared it because i liked it. I am not too much into shopping. Fast fashion brands & discounts in malls/online stores never excite me to purchase anything. I buy something when i am very specific about what i want. Most clothes/sneakers i wear are usually gifted by friends/brands during my birthday/thanksgiving/christmas or any random Monday. But i am a big sucker for watches. Now a days i prefer a good automatic or chronograph watch, but sometimes i still wear G-Shock watches from my high school/engineering college days.)
TEN WAYS TO SHOW LOVE:
1. Give without expecting in return.
2. Trust without wavering.
3. Forgive without punishing.
4. Listen without interrupting.
5. Enjoy without complaint.
6. Answer without arguing.
7. Keep your promises.
8. Speak without accusing.
9. Be patient in all things.
10. Learn to let it go.
Put yourself first.
Listen to what you have to say.
Be your own bestfriend.
Be your own dinner date.
Dress up for you.
Look good for you.
Enjoy your own company.
At the end of the day, you’re your LONGEST COMMITMENT.
You can’t skip chapters, that’s not how life works.
You have to read every line, meet every character.
You won’t enjoy all of it.
Hell, some chapters will make you cry for weeks.
You will read things you don’t want to read.
You will have moments when you don’t want the pages to end.
But you have to keep going.
Stories keep the world revolving.
Live yours, don’t miss out.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. It’s a Punjabi song & i have to talk about it. There’s Tory Lanez, i knew there’s something about girls & heart break. This guy needs to leave that feelings train. Now the good part; Diljit Dosanjh, the best Punjabi singer of all time i guess & his presence/MC is out of this world.)🔥
If you’re feeling frightened about what comes next, don’t be.
Embrace the uncertainty.
Allow it to lead you places.
Be brave as it challenges you to exercise both your heart and your mind as you create your own path toward happiness; don’t waste time with regret.
Spin wildly into your next action.
Enjoy the present, each moment, as it comes, because you’ll never get another one quite like it.
And if you should ever look up and find yourself lost, simply take a breath and start over.
Retrace your steps and go back to the purest place in your heart, where your hope lives.
You’ll find your way again.
BE YOU. LIFE IS FUN, LET IT BE.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. I share what moves my head or heart. No matter where this war is heading, it’s a big shake to the core of basic human values. & The way we are treating refugees speaks a lot.)
When we say “STRIVE TO BE SUCCESSFUL”, we must mention SUCCESS in what form!
In my eyes SUCCESS is an amazing form of accomplishment & it can be anything.
You are a good student, that’s a SUCCESS.
You are a good employee who loves & enjoys his/her job, that’s SUCCESS.
You are an entrepreneur or a businessman to a profitable venture, that’s a SUCCESS.
You lost 10kilo body weight in a month for shooting a music video, that’s SUCCESS.
You travelled 41 countries before turning 29, that’s SUCCESS.
You are truthful about what you are, that’s SUCCESS.
You never showed deceptive or inconsistent characteristics, that’s SUCCESS.
You are confident & consistent, that’s SUCCESS.
You never allowed bad times or bad people bring down your vibe, that’s SUCCESS.
You were patient with time to get what you wanted, that’s SUCCESS.
You baked the best sourdough pizza & sugarfree cheesecake for all your 17 friends, that’s a SUCCESS.
You know your bestfriend DEMI is a crybaby & despite that you had a long conversation about all your differences in opinion while grabbing her by waist, even that’s a SUCCESS.
SUCCESS is such a wildly overrated word that makes most people scared to even think about it.
We must use this word “SUCCESS” in our day to day life to feel more fulfilled in our way of living.
AS LONG AS YOU KEEP GOING,
YOU’LL KEEP GETTING BETTER.
AND AS YOU GET BETTER,
YOU GAIN MORE CONFIDENCE.
THAT ALONE IS SUCCESS. (Not my words.)
Consistent effort with clean intentions always leads to SUCCESS.
