Lessons Learned.

I hope everything is perfect at your end!
So we live and we learn. I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason, there could be several possibilities for that particular happening. Sometime we gain something, sometime we gain nothing but a lesson!
So today I am going to talk about few lessons that I have learned in my approximately 19 years of living!
I always try to learn things from everything and sometimes the lesson you learn are really good for you and can help you in living the rest of your life more 
Obviously 19 years is not a less time its approximately 2 decades which is huge amount of time so yeah I believe I learned a lot form a lot of things!
Today I am going to share 7 lessons that I have learned so far!


So the first is about positive thinking, I have this handwritten quote in my room which says " Think like a proton and stay positive". A few years back I decided to think about everything in a much much positive manner and to be honest I have seen that positive thinking can for sure do wonders! 
Just by thinking positively about anything the whole perception about the thing and even the thing itself can change. Why we think negatively when we know it can do 
nothing to the other but it can for sure harm us in several ways! So yeah just think positively about each and everything and see what happens!! Be optimistic!


We just love to expect others to be the same as we are to them but it never always happen , it does happen but very rarely. Not everyone in this huge world has got the stamina to do so. I think that the quote " Never expect form others because expectations leads to disappointment", is so true. When we expect and our expectations are not fulfilled we get disappointed and lost. So whats the point in expecting , just go with the flow , try to be happy and optimistic in every situation but try not to expect a lot from a lot of people. Be thankful if someone do good to you but don't be sad if that doesn't happen , this is only possible if we expect less and live
       "Expect nothing, appreciate everything"


This one is a big one and a sure one I would say. Everyone is this world is of different temperament and we know everybody is different. Something which is loved by 
someone is hated by the other. So nobody is same and you can never in a million years please everyone. You can for sure try to please everyone but its a very rare case
at the end of the day! 

Well said.. I wish I was a Nutellla jar! 

We often get this feeling that we are nothing or we are useless, I myself used to think this way a few years back but somebody once told me that every being is here for a reason and you are not useless, there must be a task that would be assigned to you it could be small it could be huge, but there will be something, don't make yourself small and show the world that you are something , have faith in yourself and love yourself first and never degrade yourself!
And someone once told me "Try to live as a big fish otherwise the big fish wont let you live!". A great piece of advice there!
So the moral is just never make yourself small just never degrade your ideals! Respect them.


So the next lesson is that it is a very rare case that people will get happy in your happiness. In this huge world there are a few people who genuinely gets happy in the happiness of others and those who do so in my opinion are really great beings! Hats off to you if you are one of them. But yeah it is a bitter truth and we can't do anything except changing our own mind sets and try to be happy in other people's happiness! It won't cause any harm to us in the slightest instead it will make you content!


In life we come across a lot of people and the thing I noticed in meeting people was that this world is a great speaker but not a good listener, everyone wants his 
story to be heard but a fare few are willing to listen to the story of others. Everyone can talk for several hours but can't listen for few minutes, I mean I think 
its so true and everyone can relate to this point as well. But still there are some good listeners out there and I hope hat the great speakers will become good listeners one day! 

This point brings me onto the next lesson...


As the world doesn't hear us there is only Allah who is always there for us , who always listens to us.
We have a lot of people in our lives some are friends some are best friends. We do share quite a lot of our lives , our feelings with them and they are our strong backs but still no one is ALWAYS there for you expect Allah. He is always by our side whether we neglect Him , whether we obey him. A saying in Urdu which says " Even shadow leave you in difficult times" it is true! But I am not saying that friends are not there for us, they are for sure but still Allah is the only one who is and will always be there for you! 
Share your sorrows, your happiness hence each and every aspect of life with Him! Discuss your issues with him and see how good and relieved you will feel in return. Talk with Him and feel great, the feeling you get when you talk with Him
is for me the best feeling in the whole entire world!!

So here we go those were a FEW of the many lessons that I have learned.

Learn from life!
I will see you soon!
Be happy!
Be optimistic!
Be simple.
And learn!
