As is the customary tradition of this blog, every year, I put a post on my birthday. It is my thirty-first birthday today. Turning thirty-one does not feel as bad turning thirty felt. From last year to this year, I have tried to be more positive in life and learned to be happy for myself. Of course, there are days when the uncertain future makes one feel like the world is ending, but I try to get through those days by focusing on the things that make me feel happy. One thing I really want to develop now is the feeling of self-confidence in me, the lack of which is starting to hamper my personal growth. I hate it that I am this introverted person who is not comfortable speaking. The brilliant thinker, Naval Ravikant, says, "The greatest superpower is the ability to change yourself." It is extremely hard, but I have to do it. I don't know if I will be able to do it.
Today, I saw this little house below which it was written that it is the 'Tree of Hope'. On this tree, anyone can tie a card, on which he/she can write the things one hopes for in life. Some of the cards that were on the tree were beautiful. Humans can fight with each other but, essentially, all the cards had the theme of love, happiness, and prosperity. I did not have a pen to write but I spoke a little prayer in my heart and put a blank card, hoping that the things I hope for also come true. Someone has said, "Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies." After all, umeed par duniya kayam hai.
Anyway, I will write more later.
