Ohh it’s been too long

It’s been a while since my last post. I am a little disappointed in myself as I promised I’ll write as much as I can. Life sometimes have a way of making new plans for you and it’s easier to just go with the flow. I guess I won’t be too hard on myself though because subsequent to my last post I’ve found a job, then there was the holidays and all the new year drama. But I’m glad to be back and have some time to sit and write a little.

Today I just want to state my hopes and dreams for this year, and by no means is it a New Years resolution on anything but rather a stepping stone in my journey for happiness.

Firstly this year I want to start being brave and courageous. For too long I’ve let people scare me and push me around. I had a great experience on my vacation which really change me perspective on life. I was able to conquer some of my fears and it’s given me the will power to conquer all of them. Definitely I want to practice being assertive and not let people control me. I believe this is one of the most important things to consider when dealing with depression.

Secondly,

I want to be clear in the things that make me happy and bring me joy. After this is established I want to go out into the world and do them. Fear and self doubt has held me back a lot from doing the things I like, but I’ve realized I feel the happiest when I’m doing the things that make me happy. This may seem trivial but the reality is you can be happy by doing what makes you happy. For me some of these are going to the beach, cooking, diys and studying.

Next I want to get mentally and physically healthy. I have gain a few pounds over the years and I really want to lose it. I am not one to really obsess over my physical outlook however in my journey to be the best me I believe physical health is a step in the right direction. Also over the years I’ve developed some bad habits that affect me mentally. I think it’s important for me to formulate so positive habits and get rid of some of the bad. One such habit is late night waking and not getting the recommended hours of sleep. All studies have confirmed getting enough sleep helps improve mental health. I have begun practicing good sleep practices and have improved my sleep immensely. So if you are looking for a tip to get stronger mentally I definitely recommend getting proper sleep.

These are some of the many changes I want to make in my life. I understand though everything cant be done all at once. And as they say Rome was not built in one day. And so too I understand this is a journey and not a task. This way I’m almost certain to not give up as I take one day at a time. I’m not going to lie and say it’s been easy or I have not felt depressed recently. But I have so much hope and positivity that I know it’s only going to get better.

If anyone out there feels depressed or can relate to how I feel then I hope you read this post and see that is some hope yet for us. Things do get better by doing small attainable changes to your life but most importantly you must never give up. I am not a trained physiatrist but if you are lost and then my opinions above are a good place to start. Just to summarize they are :

1) stand up for yourself.

2) write down what makes you happy and then go do it.

3) get physically and mentally healthy.

Hope this can add some value to you and know that you are not alone. Thank you for reading my post and a special thanks to all the people who like and comment on my post. Until next time live live happy.

A blog in 2018? Why?

After a long and hard deliberation I finally decided to share my life experiences with other people. In 2018, where blogs are yesterday’s news and vlogs are everywhere one might ask why now? Why here? Well let’s just say I’m an introvert and I have not graduated to recording my self talking about my life as yet. I think people still read blogs though. I do. And when I do, I relate to most people and I feel that I want to share my thoughts with people too. I want to tell my readers ( hopefully I’ll have atleast one who would follow me) my view of the world. What I like and what I don’t like. Why politics and people are independent and…..ok I think I’m getting a bit carried away. This post is supposed to be an introduction. I’ll save that point for a later post.

Writing is relaxing, it takes you away from the world and you just focus on what you want to say. I can write for hours. I guess that is why I chose to write this blog. Idle minds are self- destructive. I will recommend to anyone if you want to stop over thinking then start writing. It has work for me. And with this blog, I hope it continues to channel that untamed energy into something productive.

A blog requires commitment, concentration and creativity. All of which I lack. Somewhat. So maybe as I excitedly and emotionally share my innermost thoughts and feelings with you I would work on those values that I so desperately desire. I’m in my third paragraph and I already feel empowered. I’m already thinking of my next post. So atleast the creativity part is working. 😁

That’s about it for my introduction to my blog. In summary I look forward to sharing my experiences with you. I’m excited to write and be engaged and most importantly share my troubles with people whom may be experiencing similar triumphs and if I help someone well I’ll be super excited about that. Look out for my next post where I’ll talk about myself and who I am. Untill then Peace, Love and Happiness.
