2015 been a really important year in my life. It was the year where I had the most difficult situations to dealt with, where I lost many good friends and relationships fell apart but, amidst all of these, at the end of the day, it only taught me lessons of life ; lessons which only made me grow.
- Everything happens for a reason
One of the most used phrases which is actually true. I experienced it this year ; whether good or bad, there’s always a reason why some stuffs are happening. No need to stress yourself out if something bad is happening; most of the time bad stuffs appear because there is a lesson to be learned and to grow.
And, if you’re not getting what you want, believe that the Universe has reserved something better for you.
Funny story; I really wanted a perfect birthday this year but wasn’t getting the dress that I wanted nor the shoes. My birthday month and preparations were going in a wreck and by each passing day, I was feeling more disappointed and less excited. The happiness reduced till I gave up on my perfect birthday.
I kept asking the universe why I am not getting what I want.
When the big-day arrived, I received a priceless gift, something of utmost happiness which I didn’t expect at all. All those disappointments and frustrations of having the “perfect birthday” disappeared.
This is when it clicked me- The universe loves me. I didn’t get what I wanted because the Universe had better awesome plans
2. Letting go is easier than holding on to something which doesn’t bring you happiness
I always feared of letting go, was always holding on things and trying to make them work even if they weren’t bringing me any happiness.
But, what I learnt is that holding on things which doesn’t bring you happiness is useless. letting go is easier than holding on.
You don’t always have to make things work. Sometimes, we just need to let go and trust the universe
3. Follow your dreams
The society in which we live shapes our behavior and future. From the day I started school, I was taught that we need to get a college degree and work till we retire. That’s what I did.
When I was completing my university degree, I kept asking myself what I was doing. I wasn’t happy inside me. My friends were always working hard to get a job, even if that wasn’t their dreams.
But I couldn’t stay like this. I started searching, listening to inspirational leaders like Deepak Chopra, Vishen Lakhiani and it made me realized that the only way to be happy within me, is to follow my dreams.
It’s natural to have fears about leaving the specific rules of society and follow your dreams. I found out that everything that I’ve ever wanted is on the other side of fear.
So, go ahead, conquer your fears & live up your dreams!
4. Life is beautiful, we complicate it
Life is wonderful! It’s us who complicates things in life. I learnt that Complaining about your life is not going to get you anywhere, taking actions will.
If you’ve taken a decision about your life, be strong enough to face the consequences associated with that decision ; whether its work, family or relationship. You cant blame or hate life for the decisions that you have taken yourself.
You always have a choice. You always have a solution. Right now, you have Everything that you need to make your life beautiful. You just have to take the leap
5. Fill yourself with positivity
When you start your day on a positive note, your outlook of life changes. It doesn’t have to be big things happening in your life. Wake up, feel the Morning breeze, the chirping of birds, the laughter of your kids. have your coffee outside or take a walk. Feel that positive energy everyday. It really helps.
Happiness comes from within, not from people or material stuffs.
My biggest lesson of 2015 – Self Love!
The biggest relationship you can ever have is with yourself.
You can’t give love to other people unless you are full of love. If you don’t love yourself, you’re going to expect love from other people and when those people don’t meet your expectations, you feel frustrated, disappointed and end up being miserable.
Find time for yourself everyday. Do things that you love. Relaxing in the bathtub? A nice coffee? Playing with your pet? Reading? It could be anything that you love. Make a list of every little things that gives you happiness and just do it!
Self- Love is very important for personal growth. Build a relationship with yourself!
