I, Me, Myself and My Life’s Lessons

Rating: 5 out of 5.

For the ones I’ve not had a chance to interact with yet, here’s my brief introduction.

I am a small but significant part of this beautiful UNIVERSE. I want to change a lot of things so I began with MYSELF first. I was a curious child and was keen to understand human emotions.

In my teens and early adulthood I struggled with anxiety and weight issues. Thankfully soon I realised where was I heading and started building my life.

I studied to earn a living but soon realised I did not love what I do. So now I do what I love now. I spread my knowledge about Life, Image building and Nutrition. I am a certified Nutrition and Life coach.

  • I left my home at a young age to find myself. After a decade long search, I found out “THAT I WASN’T AN OBJECT TO BE FOUND, I AM A PAINTING AND ITS ONLY ME WHO COULD MAKE THAT PAINTING” (read it again, it will make more sense)
  • I learnt that we SPEND most our life in worrying INSTEAD of living it. Let me put it this way, we are so engrossed in our day to day life struggles that we forget to LIVE OUR LIFE. We forget that while we are struggling hard to make our FUTURE secured; a future that we may or may not see. The cost that we are paying to secure our FUTURE is PRESENT.
  • It is totally up to us on how we want to LIVE our life. Whether we want to follow a stereotype of how others live their life, IE; Education – Job – Marriage – Children – Retirement OR live the way I want to.
  • I learnt that our greatest wealth in life is not MONEY we earn, it’s the RELATIONSHIPS we build.
  • I learnt that it’s okay to fail. Failure means you tried and now you know what not to do.
  • There is not set formula to live a HAPPY life. HAPPINESS comes from within.
  • I learnt that it’s never too late to REBUILD your own life. Life never came with a MANUAL anyway, so we are bound to make mistakes.
  • I learnt not to LIVE IN THE PAST. I read a book once, In which it shows how a farmer catches a monkey.
  • Let me tell you that story:- A farmer in India wanted catch the monkey that was destroying his crops. He cut a small hole in a coconut, just big enough so that the monkey could slide its hand through. He put a banana inside the coconut, then tied it to the side of a tree. The monkey came up, smelled the banana, and stuck its hand into the coconut to grab the banana. When it tried to pull its hand out, because his hand was clenched in a fist holding the banana, it did not fit out of the small hole. And because the monkey refused to let go of the banana, the farmer was able to capture it. Had the monkey just let go, he would be free.
    • Much like the monkey with the banana, we have a tendency to hold on to things — things that don’t necessarily serve us.

I am glad I took RISKS in my life. I tried to break the rules of the stereotype society. I am glad I still want to make a lot of changes in this world. More than anything I am glad I was able to INTRODUCE myself to YOU.

I feel so much closer to you and I hope you did too.
