Happy New Year 2016!

Beginning an year is always exciting. New hopes, new dreams and new goals. After a long break from blogging and writing in general, I’ve made a resolution to write everyday, or at least every other day, here and discuss with you about everything that is going on in my life. The past year consisted of a lot of reading, due to which I was lagging behind in writing and this blog almost died. But I’m back to everything and I’ll try to manage both together.

How was your new year? I spent the new year’s eve in my room, sleeping and watching TV shows and reading, instead of partying or meeting new people. I had just returned from a trip with my family, due to which I was too exhausted to get out of my comfortable bed.

But, I wanted to go out and catch up with my friends, have a good dinner and then watch 2015 end and turn into 2016. I was too tired to even think about getting out of my house. I just hope I don’t end up getting lazier throughout the year and catch up with life, as well as my interests along the way.

Happy New Year, folks.

Teacher’s Pet

In life, we learn a lot of things from a lot of people. Whether it is our parents, teachers, friends, neighbors, or even experiences. Sometimes, we take them for granted and forget to thank those who helped us in learning various value points in our lives without which we may never reach where we are right now. Have you ever thought about thanking them for everything they have taught us, knowingly or unknowingly? 

I cannot point towards one teacher and say, “He/She has changed my life”. I think I owe a lot of who I am or who I will be, to all my teachers, who at one point of time has come into my life and taught me something, whether good or bad. Whenever I look back at my life in school, I realize how much love and care I got from my teachers who looked after us like their own children. If you are reading this or even if you aren’t, I want to say just one thing; No matter what I do or where I stand or what I become, I will never forget the lessons you taught me, the love you gave me and mist importantly, the values you gave me because if you hadn’t done any of this, I would never even have the courage to stand on my own feet. Thank you, for everything.

Imperfect Perfections!

“Perfection consists now in doing extraordinary things, but in doing things extraordinarily well.”

For some time, I’ve believed that perfection is overrated. Everybody chases perfection, when in reality; perfection is something which should come to you. There are people who want every moment of their lives dramatic and perfect. I have met so many people who either want to be perfect or want their near and dear ones to be perfect. I mean, look at this; we want a perfect man, we want a perfect wedding, we want a perfect job, we want a perfect life and whatnot. For me, perfection means nothing.

There are some people who design their entire life, from every moment to every big decision they are going to take, so that life is perfect. And when anything goes wrong, they blame luck or destiny. Honestly, perfect life is a myth. No one can achieve a perfect life, no matter how hard they work, how sincere they are, life can never be the exact way you wish it to be. And that’s the beauty of life; it is the best when it is imperfect.

Life is all about living those beautiful imperfect moments, because these imperfect moments in life define who you are. If your life would have been perfect, then you would stop appreciating it and its simple moments. Life is full of chaos. The real fun is when you find order in this chaos and when you find perfections in your imperfect life; that’s when you start loving life. Life is messy; it has chaos, nothing is perfect in it. You have problems and obstacles at every point of your life. But if you know how to overcome these imperfections, life eventually seems perfect.

Life need not to be perfect to be wonderful. Every imperfect moment in your life gives you a reason to move forward. Life would be boring without some surprises here and there. Don’t expect life to be perfect, because there is a good chance that you end up frustrated and disappointed. Instead, if you let life go on your own way, you will get surprises in the way and you never know, but you might end up satisfied and content.

Stop working on every detail of your life; just live your life. Eventually, everything happens for a reason and no matter what you do, you can change nothing. So just smile and live.
