Something happened..

The other day, during Diwali puja, something happened- there was an internal shift and I don’t know what. I felt something I have never felt- a sense of contentment mixed in with peace- it’s kinda difficult to describe yet it was nice- it felt secure, empowering and beautiful.

I have been trying to understand what has changed, why it has changed and how I should maximise on this amazing feeling…

My life is pretty amazing- with the friends I have, with the guys I date, with the laughs I share, with the work I do, with the love I give  receive… it’s all good!

Slumber Party with MY housemate

Last night was one of those nights that was just AMAZING in so many ways!

I learnt things I didn’t want to, I saw a movie I had always wanted to have the courage to see, I cried, I laughed, I talked and so did Candy.

Despite the fact that we had our own beds in our own home, we were like 2 giggly (or not so giggly) girls at a slumber party and in many ways, it was one of the best slumber parties EVER- we opened up, we talked, we shared, we laughed, we cried, we said things we normally wouldn’t, we were vulnerable, we were ourselves and we still love each other, infact even more so.

It is SO good to have such an amazing connection with such a beautiful person- inside and out. I am truly blessed and I am glad we had the night we did even if I am absolutely dying today! And the best bit, it was so NOT planned!

Sunscreen

This is one of my favourite pieces of work done by someone ever.

It’s even more interesting in that as I think of graduation, next steps, life ahead, this piece of advice is even more pertinent- thank you Baz Luhrman.

Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth. Never mind. You will not understand the power and beauty of your youth until they have faded. But trust me, in 20 years you’ll look back at photos of yourself and recall in a way you can’t grasp now how much possibility lay before you and how fabulous you really looked.

You are NOT as fat as you imagine.

Don’t worry about the future; or worry, but know that worrying is as effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing bubblegum. The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that never crossed your worried mind; the kind that blindside you at 4pm on some idle Tuesday.

Do one thing every day that scares you.

Sing.

Don’t be reckless with other people’s hearts, don’t put up with people who are reckless with yours.

Floss.

Don’t waste your time on jealousy; sometimes you’re ahead, sometimes you’re behind. The race is long, and in the end, it’s only with yourself.

Remember compliments you receive, forget the insults; if you succeed in doing this, tell me how.

Keep your old love letters, throw away your old bank statements.

Stretch.

Don’t feel guilty if you don’t know what you want to do with your life. The most interesting people I know didn’t know at 22 what they wanted to do with their lives, some of the most interesting 40 year olds I know still don’t.

Get plenty of calcium.

Be kind to your knees, you’ll miss them when they’re gone.

Maybe you’ll marry, maybe you won’t, maybe you’ll have children, maybe you won’t, maybe you’ll divorce at 40, maybe you’ll dance the funky chicken on your 75th wedding anniversary. Whatever you do, don’t congratulate yourself too much or berate yourself, either. Your choices are half chance, so are everybody else’s. Enjoy your body, use it every way you can. Don’t be afraid of it, or what other people think of it, it’s the greatest instrument you’ll ever own.

Dance. Even if you have nowhere to do it but in your own living room.

Read the directions, even if you don’t follow them.

Do NOT read beauty magazines, they will only make you feel ugly.

Get to know your parents, you never know when they’ll be gone for good.

Be nice to your siblings; they are your best link to your past and the people most likely to stick with you in the future.

Understand that friends come and go, but for the precious few you should hold on. Work hard to bridge the gaps in geography in lifestyle because the older you get, the more you need the people you knew when you were young.

Live in New York City once, but leave before it makes you hard; live in Northern California once, but leave before it makes you soft.

Travel.

Accept certain inalienable truths, prices will rise, politicians will philander, you too will get old, and when you do you’ll fantasize that when you were young prices were reasonable, politicians were noble and children respected their elders.

Respect your elders.

Don’t expect anyone else to support you. Maybe you have a trust fund, maybe you’ll have a wealthy spouse; but you never know when either one might run out.

Don’t mess too much with your hair, or by the time you’re 40, it will look 85.

Be careful whose advice you buy, but, be patient with those who supply it. Advice is a form of nostalgia, dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it’s worth.

But trust me on the sunscreen.

P.S. The bolded bits are the ones that really reach to me. The whole song but these words I try to really listen and not always succeed!
