Writing 101, Day 2- Write a list/Things I have learned

Posted on

Things I have learned

It’s been a long journey, with many ups and downs, every morning brought a new challenge, every night brought this exhausted body to bed but sleep eluded me.

My mind tries to allure me to all negative thoughts. Trying to search the scapegoat to put blame on it for my sickness and failures and to take the credit for whatever I have achieved. I did not succumb to its game. I started introspection and came up with a list of the things I have learned so far from life. From life means from everyone, every creature of this world. If we keep open mind we will find that every creature has some lesson to teach you.

The first and the most important lesson was,

Never abuse your body. It will never forgive you. You will have to bear the consequences if you don’t follow the rules of nature.

2- Anger, hatred and revenge only harm you so tread on this path cautiously.

3- Love, respect and compassion, the more you give the more you get.

4- Give lots of ‘benefits of doubt’ to others. They may not have any intention to hurt you. (It worked in my case.)

5- ‘Everything in moderation’ is a Mantra helped me most in every aspect of life.

6- You have all the right to like or dislike someone but never let hatred seep in to your heart. Don’t be too judgmental. Be lenient with others feelings.

7- Learn to hear, hear and hear. Be patient with others. Give others a chance to explain their views.

8- Plant trees wherever possible.

9- Always put duties  before rights.

10- Count your blessings, be active and try learn new things.

11- You can never run away from you fears and negative thought. Face them and accept them. Then only you can resolve them. This is hard but not impossible.

12- Learn to take responsibility of your decisions, right or wrong. You are in this condition because of the choices you have made; no one else is responsible for that.

13- Appreciate and encourage others, everyone loves it.

14- Whatever you do it with whole heart so you don’t have to repent later.

15- Our most beloved friend and the most dangerous foe is our mind only unless you know how to use it. What games it plays with us and sometimes comes in a disguise so that we are not able to recognize it that it’s a friend or a foe.

!6- Breathing and other exercises really helped me to overcome my fears, sickness and negativity, and made me more compatible, compassionate and understanding person.

There are many more lessons I have learned but will leave them for the next task. One thing I would like to make clear that this is not just for the sake of writing, I have really benefited from them.


About Indira

I knew all along that life is about, love, compassion, compatibility and friendship, but now I have discovered that life is also about sharing thought, encouraging others and getting encouraged. So here I am with my blogs about life, friendship, love, and whatever life has taught me.

  1. You are a spiritual Guru 😛

    If anyone follows those things–life would be harmony and bliss 🙂

    I suggest you use word ‘tread’ instead of ‘trade’ in number 2.

    Best Wishes,
