My Life Lesson No 5: LIVE life

I know everyone is living but I really think just living and LIVING a life are two different things. Even ants, dogs, monkeys etc. live but only humans can live the life. Most of the time we are so consumed with petty things in life that we just live and stop living the life as it is meant to be and that is not good.

We know that our time on this earth is very short so why are we wasting our time in something not important. Make sure you have good health and make it your priority. There is no excuse for not taking care of yourself because no matter what you do if you are not healthy you can’t be there for your partner, children or parents.

There is no one rule on how to live the life but just breathing is not one of them.

I am sure everyone has a dream. Work towards it. What will be the use of your money if you have millions in an account but you have no one to share that with? What is the value of your money when you are spending 14 hours at work that you hardly see your partner and children? What is the use of the money when it is hard to find time to talk to your parents and you are not there to hold their hands when they need it?

You don’t need to be older to be wiser so from today start living life that won’t make you feel regretful.

No matter how crazy your dream is, if you work towards it you will be happy with yourself and you will see the world differently. Become the person you would like to spend the rest of your life with and you will see that everyone around will be there for you.

Instead of having regrets about the past and wishing you had done something in a different way, act today and live the life you want to.

When you try to live life the way you want to, you might make mistakes, you might hit rock bottom but don’t take that as a setback. Take it as a part of the learning curve and find humour in life. Remember life is a circle and it won’t stay the same all the time.

I know it is not easy to LIVE life and there are times I want to give up and choose the easy way out but the satisfaction you get when you really live the life is priceless. If you taste that once, then you will understand the big difference between just living and LIVING the life :).

Happy Friday and have a great weekend 🙂

Take care,

My Life Lesson No 3: Always speak truth

I know we have been taught to speak the truth from a very young age. Whatever religion you follow, the holy book has always mentioned that a liar goes to hell and burns. When we were young, our parents and teachers always taught us that speaking truth is the only right way in life but as we grow older, we tend to lie more and more.

Over my short life, I have learned that if you always speak the truth, you can save yourselves from lots of trouble. I am not telling you that I have never lied in my life but as I grow older, I can see so many benefits of speaking the truth.

First, you don’t have to remember what you told anyone because it is the truth and you will be saying the same thing to everyone but if you lie you might need to lie a hundred times more to cover up that lie. On top of that, you should be willing to lie to everyone because that lie will be easily caught if you tell different stories to different people.

I am a bad lair so people sense something is wrong if I try to lie. When I started this blog for the first time, I posted a few posts online and was not sure if I wanted to share that with my husband because I wanted to blog anonymously, I thought it is OK but I couldn’t sleep properly for the next few days until I told him. I told him because I didn’t want to hide anything from my husband. I never wanted him to mistrust our relationship. On top of that, I know he will eventually find my blog as he surfs the internet so often. In addition, I wanted to share my ideas with him if required.

Even though telling the truth may be difficult for many people, it’s the approach that allows us to earn the respect of others. Nowadays people have a great deal of problem speaking the truth. Many are afraid they will hurt someone, they will be hurt, it’s not politically correct, or it’s easier to avoid conflict. People have lost the connection to their true self and this causes great conflict within them.

One thing I am sure is that if you lie too many times, people will lose trust in you and trying to gain that trust will be a very hard job.

I know there are times in life when it seems better to lie for some reasons, which may be more or less legitimate. Like adults lying to kids if something hurts them or telling your partner he/she is the most beautiful/handsome person in the world. I believe that it is OK because I have done that too. I never told my parents about my hardship as a student because they were so far away and I didn’t want them to worry. I always told them things were great but eventually after I graduated, I told them. Of course, not in detail as I had forgotten a lot too, but they do know now that I had some hard times as a student.

However, you need to be careful while telling white lies too. There is a fine line between them, a lie and a white lie. A white lie should not involve other people. It should only be used in order to protect unfortunate people.

So always try to speak the truth and be willing to accept the truth. When you live your life being honest with yourself, no matter how difficult it is, eventually you will find that you have a better life that is filled with integrity.

Do you agree with me?

Have a great weekend everyone 🙂
