25 Lessons....

Things I've Learnt at 27:

1> Learn to be vulnerable to life, people, events. Whats the worst that could happen? You'd get hurt, that will make you stronger.

2> Take life as it comes, planning does help, but fate gets its kicks from fumbling up your lines in this play called The Journey through Life, so don't expect life to be predictable, if you've forgotten ur lines....make em up! ;)

3> Give 100% of yourself to people, you have no idea how much it means to them.

4> Constant rule(I second, third n fourth that): Whatever happens, happens for the me. You'll come to know the beauty of that much later on or earlier if ur lucky.

5> Get a pet.

6> Don't equate everything in terms of money, cold cash, ze green stuff. Its just a means to an end. Life will be beautiful once you stop viewing it with dollar tinted glasses. Money is overhyped.

7> Yesterday is a dream, tomorrow is but a vision. But today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness, and every tomorrow a vision of hope. Look well, therefore to this day.

8> Learn to read between the lines. Someone might not be saying what your hearing, but something else.

9> You can chase a butterfly all over the field and never catch it. But if you sit quietly in the grass it will come and sit on your shoulder.

10> Never judge a book by its movie. Go & read Harry Potter/Lord of the rings NOW !!!!

11> There are four basic food groups, milk chocolate, dark chocolate, white chocolate, and chocolate truffles. 9 out of 10 people like chocolate. The tenth one always lies.

12> If A equals success, then the formula is: A = X + Y + Z, X is work. Y is play. Z is keep your mouth shut.

13> Walk on a rainbow trail; walk on a trail of song, and all about you will be beauty. There is a way out of every dark mist, over a rainbow trail - Navajo Song.

14> Weeds are flowers too, once you get to know them.

15> Smile as much as you can, its a magic spell in disguise. It will make you happy even if you don't feel happy from inside.

16> Start a trend of giving today.....give something meaningful to someone & ask them to pass it on.....if it comes back to you, you can truly smile.

17> Watch cartoons atleast once a week.

18> Do meaningless things like whiling away time with friends, drawing/painting flowers/houses/birds/trees, looking at the moon n the stars, helping ur mom cook food or ur dad with the handywork around home(no... don't reach for the electrician's number!), go for walks with just yourself, talk to ur dog/trees around you,etc. This very much adds to what you call true living without any pretense.

19> Hard work breeds brilliance. Working smart can get you on top; won't keep you there.

20> Genuinely help people, you will grow not only as a person but as a likeable person.

21> Fall in love atleast once in ur life & pray even all do!

22> Nobody is perfect......I am nobody!!!

23> Fan of the geek Morpheus........I love to sleep!!! (pssst....its my fav past-time)

24> Ash nazg durbatul√Ľk, ash nazg gimbatul,
ash nazg thrakatul√Ľk agh burzum-ishi krimpatul
(One Ring to rule them all, one ring to find them all,
One Ring to bring them all and in the Darkness bind them all

25> It’s the blind leading the blond
It’s the stuff, it’s the stuff of country songs
If God will send his angels
And if God will send a sign
And if God will send his angels
Would everything be alright
