Dawn of the Epiphanies!

I’d like to pretend that I’m a wise individual. 
 
Why?

Because right now, at this very moment, I am as wise as I’ve ever been and as wise as I ever will be. So why not just go ahead and call myself that! 😀

I’m 27 right now, and as odd as it sounds to say it out loud, I feel much older than that. The past few years of my life has been a whirlwind, both personally and professionally. So much has happened, so much has changed. I grew up fast. Or in some cases, I was forced to grow up and act like a matured adult. 

Life does that to you. 

But in retrospect, when I take a good look at my 27 years of living, I feel nothing but perpetual gratitude for the life that I have and all that I’ve learned so far. And since I am a little more than a quarter of a century old, I believe that entitles me to momentarily and figuratively climb atop something you can hear me from and give you advice. I am also forcing this information on you because I just wrote a sentence that rightfully included the word “century”. 😀

I know you must have read a million posts similar to this, and I too have. But that’s exactly what inspired me to write this post in the first place. These are the greatest epiphanies I have had and the greatest lessons I have learnt in 27 years of this goofy, incredible thing we call life.

#27
Office pressures should be left at office. Do not confuse your career with your life.
 
#26
 
You cannot please everyone.

There’ll always be that one person who’ll hate your guts. Don’t waste your time trying.

 
#25
 
Be kind to yourself.
You will do stupid things in life. There’s no point in beating yourself up about it. 
Accept it and move on. 
 
#24
 

Music is the best medicine to everything. 

#23

Do not wear lip gloss on a windy day with your hair down. 

Big Mistake.

 
#22
 
The best revenge is happiness, because nothing drives people more crazy then seeing someone actually having a good life! 😛
 
#21
 
Do what YOU want. Forget what society says you should do or be. Somebody is always going to have some sort of unwanted opinion about how you’re living your life. 
Tune it out, this is your life.

It’s never too late to learn anything. 
It’s true. A lot of people told me that I learnt driving a little too late. 
But I don’t think so. I feel that I learnt it at a time when I could afford to buy my own car, and I probably might not have driven as much as I do now if I had learnt it earlier. 
So, see.. it all worked out.

Revisiting your past is probably the worst thing you could do for your well-being.
It will come back and haunt you for sure. 
#18
 
Let go. 
Learn to let go of things that cannot be changed, and that are beyond your control. 
It’s for the best. You cannot always control everything.
 
#17
 
Trust your instincts. 
Mine have always been shockingly right.
 
#16
 
Failure not only makes you stronger, it also improves your problem solving skills.
 
#15
 
There’s a time for everything and everyone. 
Your time will come too.
 
#14
 
Your parents are ALWAYS right.
(Yes mom, you heard me!)
You shockingly realize that they were right about literally everything. 
Your parents are who they are for a reason and you actually realize over time that they are the coolest people ever!
 
#13
 
Do not lie in bed at night and think, “what if?”. 
I do this all the time, and it never ends well. It is pointless. Nothing can change the past, and dwelling on it will only drive you crazy. Reminisce about the good times, yes, but realize that there will be more good times ahead (may be even better times. Who knows!).
 
#12
 
Not giving a shit about what other people think will liberate you.
 
#11
 
Stop imagining about your future. 
Just learn to accept that things will never happen exactly as you expect them to. Sometimes they’re better; sometimes they’re worse, and sometimes they’re just different. Don’t worry about it. Things always have a funny way of working themselves out.
 
#10
 
If good days don’t last, so won’t the bad days.
 
#9
 
Friends will come and go. 
Let them. 
Everyone has their own life to live and they won’t always be around.
 
#8
 
If someone wants to be a part of your life, they will make an obvious effort to be in it.
 
#7
 
If something is meant to happen, it will happen – in the right time, with the right person, and for the best reason. There’s no need to rush.
 
#6
 
Everyone makes mistakes. If you can’t forgive others, don’t expect others to forgive you.
 
#5
 
Take lots and lots of photos. 
Someday you’ll be really glad that you did. 
I have a terrible habit of deleting photos in which I ‘apparently’ don’t look good. I have regretted it over the years. Good or bad, photos are treasured memories. Save them. You’ll at least have something to laugh over a couple of years later.
 
#4
 
Travel as much as you can. 
It expands your mind with each new experience, and fills your life with memories and beautiful moments that you’ll remember forever. 
 
#3
 
Some people need more sleep than others to function in life. *raising hand*
 
#2
 
Time does heal all wounds.
#1

Last, but definitely not the least…
Always, always, always..
