Here are my Ten Commandments, which I try to follow to the best of me under any circumstances.
Treasure but not Pressure: We know deep down that money cannot buy happiness. Yet we continue to spend much of our lives and time doing things that keep us away from our beloved. Let us be reminded that our life is too valuable to waste chasing the assets. Let us not add pressure to our beautiful life by chasing after possessions that can be purchased with a plastic card.
Temporary happiness does not last long: If you put your happiness in temporary things – your happiness will be temporary – Nick Vujicic . We know that the stuff we buy and own offers only temporary happiness. Happiness is a choice and not a destination. Happiness lies within ourselves, starting from us and ending at us. Happiness from materialistic things is temporary and just pleasure. The truth is that, until we don’t get what we want, we will not be happy and that means, we will be spending most of our life waiting to be happy.
Trust: Trusting is taking the risk. Trust to earn the trust back. The fear of rejection, fear of going wrong, fear of being laughed, fear of the unknown, fear of being taken advantage of, fear of losing something of – it’s completely normal to feel fear. The only way to trust is to grab hold of our fear and work through it. Trust is something that is worked daily in a relationship.
Tenacious: I will not quit. I will never, ever give up- it is the rare few who decide to be tenacious, Tenacity being a major difference maker. Self-esteem or feeling of our own worth is an important human quality. Self-esteem, self-confidence, and self-image are the three traits if worked on a daily basis have the power to help us have a tenacious state of mind. By living with passion every day, we will never live with deep regret. A perfect example of tenacity could be the toddlers who are trying to learn how to walk. They fall over again and again yet they never give up their perseverance.
Thoughtful: Living a thoughtful life is about understanding the ethics of how we live, and what changes we can make to improve the quality of life. It means always re-evaluating our beliefs and having the modesty to reassess them. We have the power to change things for the better.
Temper: Temper can leave lifelong scars that are often difficult to heal. Nothing good happens when we have a bad temper. Not only does the person at the receiving end suffer both mentally and physically but it also makes a dent forever in our persona. Anything that we do in temper will be wrong.
Take-it-easy policy: Most things are worth taking easy. Sometimes we get overwhelmed and because of that, we need to allow ourselves the chance to unwind, take a break and take it easy. Allowing ourselves to let go in the midst of the dense fog of life will definitely help us emotionally. Here’s is to take it easy – Slow, relax and listen- that is the only way to truly tune in and access our body’s wisdom.
Thrifty: Thrifty herein mean watch your words. Be thrifty while you speak because words have a lot of power and it’s important to watch our words and not take ownership of something that we don’t want to continue. Our inner You is always listening. So, let us be thrifty about our words.
Treat Yourself: Let us treat ourselves as we deserve to lead a happy life and enjoy to the core. Doing little things that make us happy has a knock-on effect on our mental health. A little love from time to time is all we need to build our confidence and self-esteem. I am sure you all know how to treat yourself. I cook my favorite and treat my family. I also treat myself by saying a “NO” when I am not interested in anything.
Thankful: Taking the time to be thankful and appreciative for things we have received, tangible or intangible, makes us feel more positive and relish good experiences, improves our health and builds strong relationships. A life of rich accomplishment comes to those who also thank for their setbacks. So, let us thank our troubles so that they become our blessings.

Welcome to syncwithdeep! I am not a prolific blogger. My blog is 1 month old. I love memories and that was one of my reasons to come up with blogging. I don’t have a niche as I love to write about anything that appeals to me. This is my first year with #BlogchatterA2Z #ATOZChallenge and I have taken up the category woman themed at 40. In a couple of months, I am going to set my foot on the 40s, the descending hill. I am sharing my perspective how this transition is going to transform me in the nearing future. This is absolutely my Personal Experience. I would be glad if you spam me with your comments, whether you agree or disagree. That way, I can know how you welcome your 40s. Stay tuned with me every day to know how I am coping with my 40s.
