Some Blabber More..

Last night dinner with my cousin.. a few thoughts came up, which I have been thinking a lot lately for self improvement, became clearer & stronger further :

  • Confidence to look inside by being objective came from doing decently well at WORK – which is probably not Ideal or recommended but in my case it had to be via Work because it plays an extremely important role in my life.
  • Piush had alot to do with giving this confidence & then mentoring me to look further inside to become a better person – though his recommendations were from work aspects but its not surprising that exactly same qualities are required by me in current life – To be Analytical, Amiable 🙂 always..
  • Sneha’s constant response to my blabbers, traits, behaviours, words were more than helpful – Probably I am indebted to her for Life for this. I used to always think that am high on empathy, concern for others & outward looking while honestly I was only being selfish in all my pursuits by only expressing what I felt was right while ACTUALLY NOT realising what the other person is saying or wanting to say or means or feels. This has been a revelation of sorts to be equally if not more concerned about what the other person is saying, feeling, thinking, wanting.
  • Probably all my relationships have gone wrong at some points coz of my constant need to control & looking inward only – Mac, Rahul, Appy, Shweta Di, Nakul are a few I can think FirstHand.
  • Am not very good at Letting Go! It comes from Impatience, not trusting others to do the Right, not giving space – COMPLETE NO NO!
  • I was not very good at having difficult conversations – but have to learn the art of having a difficult conversation in a calm & peaceful way.
  • I did fear losing others and myself a lot – majorly Fear was making all the decisions which is not the Right way always!

As you are approaching 30!

Its just a number – Yes I agree, Age is a number and it depends on you how much you let it impact yourself.

However, with Age comes experience and perspective more importantly that helps you have an overall approach over important matters. It also helps you to filter things better – what is important from what is not.

For 30 specifically – I can share following specific unique changes one experiences in one’s life however remain common if you compare everyone else’s lives as a sample case :

  • You learn to spend time on your own
  • You get better grip of your professional and personal career
  • You have finally realised the importance of your family in your life
  • Your no. of friends get fewer but friendships deeper
  • You have realised what Love is really about, for yourself
  • You are wiser and calmer than your early 20s
  • You have some more financial independence
  • You have got a knock – knock to keep your physical and mental health intact
  • A bunch of your true friends have turned out to be WHAT?!
  • You have tried and tested most of the things that fascinated you as a student – money, luxury, good food, wine, etc. though not satisfied your buds completely
  • Most of us have found our mojo or passions in our lives – even if it is as simple as being a family person or just being happy all the time
  • In the end its about being yourself – having a lot of fun while doing anything anything in life!
