I’m a 21 year old art aficionado with a deep affinity for intellectual conversations, political discussions, poetry and tea. I am hopelessly in love with the sky and sunsets and I believe as Keats said that “a thing of beauty is a joy forever.”

I believe in little things and I think life reveals itself through them like seeing the sunset or having tea on a cold morning or feeling the cool breeze on your face. I am a person of the little mundane things.

I believe that despite all the sadness and the anxiety life gives, it is beautiful and should be affirmed.

Happiness comes from the inside. Over the years I have learned through the hard way that gratitude is the key to happiness. It can never come from having more but rather being content with what you have. The richest are the ones satisfied with the little they have.

I believe in living in the moment, savoring it and living it fully. The past brings sadness and regrets and the future brings anxiety.

I think that most important thing in life is to be at peace with yourself. At the end of the day when it’s all said and done and you are lying on your bed tired and worn out you will crave for nothing but peace of mind. And if you don’t have it then it’s not worth it.

I believe that hard work is never wasted even though it might not lead to you to success every time but it always pays off in one way or the other.

Adversity can be your best friend only if you have the eyes to see. There can be no worth accomplishment without hardship. Only through struggle can you reach the stars.

Everything happens for a reason though you can’t see it every time. I believe that things go wrong so that they can make something right. Nothing is completely a total loss. There is always some good lurking in the corner but most of the times we are too blind to see it.

Self-belief is a power which can work wonders. Believe and you will. All through my life when I firmly believed in something I achieved it.

The mind is everything. What you think you become, so watch your thoughts. Positivity is an attitude which can take you far in life and give you loads of contentment and peace.

The most important person in your life is you yourself. At the end of the day it is only you. It is necessary to love yourself, and take care of yourself. You are the one who matters the most in your life and without respecting and loving yourself first you would never be able to have stable relationships.

People will disappoint you. No matter what happens the moment you start expecting from them, they will always disappoint you. So be careful never to place your happiness in someone’s hands. They will eventually drop it.

Love as much as you can. Love but don’t obsess. Don’t try to possess the other person. Love should be liberating not suffocating. And when you love don’t ignore the possibility of heartbreak for love and heartbreak are twins. But that’s okay. Some of the best lessons in life are learned through pain. The pain of love is sweet. It will make you softer and kinder.

Passion and enthusiasm are something which can always make you stand out. If you are passionate enough and are truly crazy about it you can do anything. Put your heart in things you do. Only then can you do them truly and sincerely.

Mistakes are the best way to learn. You will learn the most important lessons in your life the harder way. You will struggle at things but then eventually you will manage to pull them off. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes, take them as valuable learning experiences and you will be glad that you made them.

Dreams should be boundless as the sky. Have the courage to dream big for what can be imagined can be achieved. Never be afraid to push your limits.

Art is one of the best ways to heal yourself. I believe in the power of art, its rawness, its honesty, sincerity and intensity. Art has taught me a lot in life.

Books can be your best friends. They have that magical power to mold your thinking for better or worse. Good books can really have a healthy influence on your personality. Choose them carefully and never let this relation die.
