Because all that matters is Love

  • Be positive, be happy, be social, be with everybody, but don’t be “like” everybody. Being around your friends and family does not necessitate you to be like them. Be different, be yourself always. It’s easy to be influenced, but be strong in your resolution to stay original
  • When your child calls you, always be available. Always answer at the first call, don’t let them get frustrated and call you multiple times before you answer. It may be extremely trivial to us as adults, but to our child it may be an important question. By not being there for them when they need us, we start to create a vacuum in the relationship which only grows us apart over the years.
  • Be your partner’s biggest strength. We never realize how much we know and understand each other. Being together and sharing everything, we come to know the strength and weakness of each other. We need to encourage and provide constructive criticism to help succeed one another. This is one goal, that is measurable, and is a gold mine waiting to be unlocked. When we bring out the best in each other, life is happy, prosperous and successful
  • Make the choice to lead a healthy life. Create a plan that will work for you. Remember, you are your only competition. The goal is to be better than your past self. Get inspired by your family, friends and colleagues, be happy and appreciative of their achievements. But never make the mistake of adopting their goals or adapting to their lifestyle. You are who you are because of the choices you made. Your health is unique to you, it’s up to you to stay healthy. Make your own health regime and be proud of your achievements however large or miniscule
  • This is an unpopular lifestyle change and a tough resolution, but I truly believe in it. Make friends who are equals. Equals in intellect, thought process, common interests, common goals and those who truly lift you in positivity. In friendship there is a lot of flux, and a lot of acquaintances. We invest a ton of time and energy on building friendships, so it’s important to invest wisely.
  • Stop the phone ringer after 10pm. Smartphone and social media are the biggest examples for the term “necessary evil”. As human beings, we love to network, connect and stay in touch, so these inventions are a phenomenal boon. However, sometimes they make us so available, that it gets “too close for comfort”. Honestly, most conversations can wait for the next morning and need not be answered after 10pm. However since the phone doesnt stop dinging, we are always tempted to check back and see if there are any responses.
