Being 30 isn't as bad as I dreaded it would be. On the contrary, I feel great!
I feel more focused, more relaxed, a little mature and quite uncompetitive. I feel no pressure to prove anything to the world at large. I am yet to achieve complete peace within myself but I am definitely enroute.
I can still be a child though. It helps me connect with my 5 year old. Together we watch cartoons, read illustrated books, dabble in art, make a mess of the house, go to parks and girly shopping sessions.
She is mostly my partner-in-crime which actually limits my crime level to sneaking icecream from the fridge. Yet sometimes I do feel she is as mature as I am. Now, I don't really know if it is a compliment for her or an insult to myself .
My soul-sister introduced me to a book called "The Secret" by Rhonda Byrne several months ago. I am not a fan of self-help books and thus I delayed buying it until now. I am yet to read beyond a few chapters but the gist of what I read has impressed me immensely.
The author along with her co-authors talks about the law of attraction and how we are given what we ask for. The universe responds to our thoughts and wishes. Most importantly it is a journey of positivity and positive thinking.
The book's audio version(available on YouTube for free) and movie version are available for those who find reading self-help books mundane. I prefer the book, thus going through that path.
Positivity in itself sounds so easy to do and follow. It has been something that I have been consciously trying to inculcate in myself for almost a year now. It is difficult, especially if you read newspapers and watch news. If you watch Indian television serials, then may God help you!
September being my birthday month and conveniently the earliest I can start, I am off on a journey to attain positivity. My first target is to keep thinking, speaking, doing and spreading positivity for a year. Hopefully by then, it would become a habitual way of life.
Wish me luck and feel free to kick me back to my senses if you find me off the path to positivity.
