    Dear all,

    In our workplace, appraisal times are hectic. In life, appraisal comes unexpectedly and we need to gear ourselves for it.

    Let us learn to relax and let go and stop having undue expectations and unreasonable fears. This can be a takeaway from this pandemic for those who are lucky to have survived it. It is just not worth stewing over imaginary fears and regrets and getting stuck in the "should have beens" or "should be so".

    It's my appeal to my readers to smile more and enjoy every moment as it comes.

    TIME FOR APPRAISAL

    Throw out what you don't need,
    Guilt, regret and greed,
    Empty cupboards and boxes,
    throw out false appearances.

    Since you have done your best,
    now it's time to relax and rest,
    Let go your ideal notion of life
    and to enjoy without a strife.

    Let's gear up for life's appraisal,
    abrupt, merciless and brutal!
    clock of life goes suddenly still,
    what we can do then is nil!

    Have no fears, make no plan,
    Laugh and love as you can,
    enjoying life to the fullest,
    shine your brightest!

    Advice is like snow.
    The softer it falls,
    the longer it dwells upon,
    and the deeper it sinks
    into the mind...

    Little self

    O my darling ,do not shed your worthy tears
    Because after going through the dark
    There is light
    Each and every moment are the best moment
    Which should be treasured in the treasures
    O my darling, do not fear the struggle
    That are waiting for you
    Always remember, there will be time
    where you will spread your wings
    To fly
    Do not worry about the failure you face
    Remember not every prize deserves you
    We wear ornaments very easily
    But do we know ,how much that precious stone
    As gone through to be our jewellery
    Every thing happens with a reason
    Everything has a cause and effect
    Don't worry about the future
    Your future will depend on our present
    Make each and every moment so beautiful
    That you can wear it till the last day as ornament
    O my darling,let go of the worries
    Now enjoy each moment of life.
    Sometimes the wounds are so deep
    It takes time to heal
    But my darling always remember that
    Your wounds are your teaching
    That will make your life beautiful.
    The path that you will go through
    Is never a straight path
    O my darling ,always smile at any circumstances
    Because that's what a warrior do
    At the time of struggles

    Life Lessons

    Dear younger me,

    I am writing to you today to dole out some important life lessons that I’ve accumulated over the years. I know you are restless and more often than not, do not listen to anyone’s advice. This causes you to learn by falling on your face and hence learning the hard way. I trust however that coming from me you will pay heed to what I have to say and let it help you get out of sticky and uncomfortable situations more easily.
    Here goes-

    1. Learn to trust your instinct - what you feel inside your gut the first time something happens is usually right. Trust that feeling.

    2. There is no substitute for hard work- you may or may not be the most intelligent person in the room, but you can certainly become the most hardworking . And hard work always pays off .

    3. Don’t let anything get you down- you need to learn from mistakes and move on again. If you let things get you down, you’ll never move ahead in life.

    4. Perseverance- you need to keep at a task if you hope to achieve the impossible. If you let go of it the minute you sense failure, you’ll never succeed.

    5. Failure is a stepping stone, not a dark hole- every time you fall down, get up, dust yourself , learn what needs to be learnt and move ahead.

    6. Depression is not the end of it all - you can be depressed and yet work towards your betterment. Being depressed is not the end of life. Talk about your depression and get the help that is needed to solve it. Therapy helps.

    7. Never lose faith - or sight of what you want. Yes there will troubled times and times when nothing will go your way . It is then that you need to be steadfast and hold on to your faith (in god, in others, in yourself and life).

    8. Never assume - anything about another person’s thoughts or intentions or their abilities.

    9. Do the right thing- even if it kills you, even if you are angry , even if the one you are trying to help hurts you. Doing the right thing make you not have any regrets later.

    10. Always tell the truth- except when the truth will hurt someone. Value honesty and tell the truth , always . The lesser lies you tell, the lesser you will need to keep track of what you’d said earlier. That is simply exhausting and not worth it.

    11. Never hurt people- by your actions or words. Be aware of what you are saying and doing to and for other people.

    12. Never expect goodness to be rewarded- you need to do the right thing and not expect to be rewarded for the same . Doing good never hurt anybody.

    13. Do not confuse sarcasm with wit- no the most sarcastic person is not the smartest one in the room, they are simply small minded and mean. Good things do not happen to mean people.

    14. Be sensitive to others feelings- there’s more to life than just your troubles and your difficulties . Some people are fighting greater battles than you. Respect them and that fact.

    15. Don’t judge a book by its cover or the condition of the same- stop being prejudiced and conceited and stop turning your nose down on people who do not look/ seem to be up to your standard.

    16. Be kind and generous. Kindness is the greatest gift you can give to another person. Forgive yourself for your follies and bad decisions. What is in the past cannot be changed and the only thing you can do is to move forward.

    17. Don’t let anger destroy you - raging over things is not the right way to deal with what’s wrong. Instead of seething, learn to take control of your rage and gradually simmer it down. Anger makes you do and say things you will regret later.

    18. Don’t hold grudges- if you hold on to negativity, it will attract even more negativity. And nothing good ever came out of being negative. Holding a grudge will not affect others but will cause you great mental harm. Forget and forgive even if just to save yourself grief and pain.

    19. Do not give into peer pressure- do not feel pressurised to do as your companions/ friends/ peers are doing. Do what you feel is right for you not succumb to what others think you should be doing to fit in.

    20. It is okay to be different- you were made different and it is not imperative that you fit in . Be proud of yourself and who you are. It is okay to be different from others. Great things have been created by people who simply thought out of the box and were labelled odd. Be yourself, at all times.

    The greatest advice that I can give you- Learn to say no and cut ties with negative people. If you say yes to everything you didn’t want to agree to, you will left with a feeling of great dissatisfaction because then you would have done things against your will. Cut ties with anyone who is negative. Negative people are poisonous and drag everyone down to their level of negativity.

    Here’s to hoping that you will spend lesser time rethinking and reevaluating every move you make. Overthinking will not change the world ! Find your bubble of happiness and learn to thrive not just survive. I hope my life lessons help you in leading a happier and more productive life.

    My love always
    Pallavi

    I'm tired of my warnings being ignored and people being shocked by the outcome. No, your punishment is not unjust. You are being punished for the crime and your chosen ignorance. You are only victim to your own poor choices.

    There is a divide between ignorance and beligerence.
    One is partly the failure of your peers.
    The other is the failure to listen.
    Those who pay no heed to words of a friend
    Are owed no right to surprise
    When chastised for their actions.

    To my younger self

    Just whine and bicker as much as you want because when you age you won't find anyone to listen to even if you are not whining
    Forget about what will you do when you get older because there will already be lots of expectations from others don't add yours too
    Just dance and run and play all day because you won't know there will be a day declared where you ll be too old to do these
    And the last thing don't listen to any advices because it will always be either , you won't understand or it'll make you more anxious
    so just do as much mistakes as you can so there are no more advices needed.

    Life advice

    I was a very troubled teen. I was young, rebellious and would not listen to good advice when it was given to me . This caused me great grief in life. I had to learn things the hard way. But I never gave up and slowly learnt how to fight on. I learnt somethings along the way and some were taught to me by people who acted as anchors for me in troubled times. I cannot say that all the following advice is my own but yes this is a list of all that helped me get back on track and acted as a guiding light whenever I lost my way- which was often in the last decade.
    Listed below is the life advice I would like to give to my younger self -

    1. Learn to trust your instinct - what you feel inside your gut the first time something happens is usually right. Trust that feeling.

    2. There is no substitute for hard work- you may or may not be the most intelligent person in the room, but you can certainly become the most hardworking . And hard work always pays off .

    5. Failure is a stepping stone, not a dark hole- every time you fall down, get up, dust yourself , learn what needs to be learnt and move ahead.

    6. Depression is not the end of it all - you can be depressed and yet work towards your betterment. Being depressed is not the end of life. Talk about your depression and get the help that is needed to solve it. Therapy helps.

    Painting today with the brushes of the past

    It's very easy to say move on, forget, let go, but the past is what guides our decisions and our choices. Every bad experience leaves a mark not only our souls but in our bodies as well. There's that one earth-shattering, heartbreaking, soul-destroying experience that completely alters not only the course of our lives but also changes our perspective and our beliefs. You can't deny or ignore what it has cost and what it took from you. And you can not change it. The past is still echoing in the very essence of your being, vibrating in the secret corners of your heart, painting every single decision in hope or fear; fueling or paralysing you in everything you do. Until you become aware of the power of the past you will never truly be free from it.

    Memories

    Don't be confused by false happiness from memories, your mind has a way of tricking you.

    If you find yourself missing them, remind yourself why they're in your past.

    Don't let the memories from the past contuine to haunt you today, you conquered them already.

    If a dark memory arises from the past, think of a positive from the same time.

    Don't dwell on past recollections, you are ruining today's happiness.

    Acknowledge the feelings associated with these memories, but don't let them stay, feel them, then turn away.

    Quiet whispers of a wise soul

    Look around you. Who do you have in your life right now? Who do you ask for advice? It's very easy to post beautiful scriptures every day but be as vile as you can be in your private space. Don't go looking for advice about success from people who are scared of the very thing you're looking for. You have all the answers within you. The solution to every problem you ever have to face or came across is written in your soul. You have enough wisdom to own your space with confidence and the absolute belief that you are exactly where you need to be. Stop looking for confirmation, approval or permission. Look within and see the truth. If in doubt, don't do it. Your soul is wise enough to be clear and simple in its answers and will guide you with clarity and confidence to give you the answer that you need.
