Lessons Learnt in 2016

Lessons from 2016

2016 has been a year for highest highs and lowest troughs. It has been a fun, interesting, and a year where I learned a lot about myself and a little more about the world. Below are some of the lessons that I could remember last night before going to bed. I think, I might continue to add to this list over the weekend. If I do, I will mention that on Facebook & Twitter :) 

Here goes ... 

1. If you want something put it out there in the universe, with clarity and earnestness. Universe returns it back in two folds.

2. Don't stress about what is not in your control. But actively try and make this world a better place, for yourself and for people around you.

3. Value your time. Don't confuse being busy as being productive. Set small daily goals. Once you have achieved them; relax.

4. Pick your battles. Just because you choose to be quiet doesn't mean you are wrong. It means you are smart enough to save your energy for what matters more.

5. Don't let anyone else decide your self-worth - not social media, not your followers/fans, not your partner, not even your parents. You decide your own self-worth.

6. Standing up for what you believe in doesn't always mean going out on a protest march. Simply continuing to live the way you want to is action enough.

7. People will continue to surprise you. Sometimes in a good way and sometimes not. Try and keep an open mind. Even with buffoons. 

8. Just because someone is intelligent doesn't mean they will produce quality work and vice versa. 

9. No one has it 'all' figured out, no matter how sorted they look. Everyone is just doing the best they can and know how. 

10. Let go of the FOMO. No one is having more fun than you are. If you are happy where you are, then that's what matter's the most. 


  1. Ugh yes! These are things so many people would benefit from learning! It's wonderful that you've learned them so young and can now grow because of it! Happy New Year darling! I hope 2017 if fabulous for you!!!

  2. "Don't stress about what is not in your control." That one is so hard for me. But I really want to get better at this this upcoming year! -Jessica

  3. Astute reflections. One of the reasons I like you is how similar our minds work -- you're always looking for wisdom and thus often find it. Happy New Year, Tanvi!

  4. I love the concept of living the life you want to live. You don't have to protest but living for yourself is super important.
