So yeah! Today, on May 21, 2017, I am going to turn 22 years old man. Haha! How amazing is that, isn’t it? But not really. I’ll tell you why; I am not a person who is always like ‘It’s gonna be my birthday and I am going to have so much.’
Not at all, because I believe feelings, learnings, successes, and failures are going to remain the same. It is the same day I celebrated yesterday. It is not the birthdays that change us instead, it is the learnings we learn from every day of the previous year, and not the day itself. And moreover, why to celebrate only one day of your life? When you can celebrate every day of your life by treating each day as your birthday.
Honestly, I was mot going to write anything about my birthday, but thanks to Facebook which showed me in “See your memories” and when I read the blog post I had written last year on the same day, it made me feel so good and emotional at the same time. I mean, I could actually replay all the memories in my mind. How I had started observing more, how I grew in my personal & college life, how grateful I was to have 400+ SumitOfficial’s followers to today 2400+ SumitOfficial’s followers today. I can completely remember each and every day of my life span of this year.

The love I used to receive last year is 10 times more in today’s scenario. I can NEVER thank you guys for that. My priorities and philosophies in life have always been simple, I never expected people to act according to me instead, I accept and love them in their own true colors and so did they do.
I have always been grateful to all the wonderful people, including you, who always be there for all the ups and downs of my life, and people who always put efforts to read my work on the SumitOfficial’s blog.
I was not born as a writer, it was people who made me one.
The year 2016-2017 was a year of great growth for me in both the ways, personally and professionally.
Here on my 22nd birthday, I would want to tell a few things which I had learnt in my entire life ( especially this past year) I hope it helps you in some way:
1) I love to write because it keeps me connected.
As soon as I found my interest in writing, I started writing like anything. It was a time in my life when I was so obsessed with writing that I used to(and still do)write for the entire day. It used to pain my eyes but I could completely feel the satisfaction in my heart.
2) Just do what makes you happy.
Now it is a time when you need to decide a lot of things because that is going to stay in your life forever be it your career, friends, life-partner. So it is really important to choose anything wisely, which should make you happy from within.
3) Remove people from your life who always complain about everything.
You are not a teenager anymore. You are responsible for your career, life, and most importantly your family. Always try to avoid people who complain about things which are not in our control. I have personally applied this in my life for a lot of times. And believe me, it always works.
4) Don’t hold people. Make them free. If they want to stay they will else they will find a way to leave.
Over the course of your life and career, you will make a lot of new friends, colleagues, managers, business partners, bosses, and what not, one day shit might happen and nothing will be the same. They will not talk to you, and you neither. They will move on, you will move on. Enemies become friends and vice versa.
Just make sure you don’t hold a grudge for anyone in your life. The way they are going, the same way they might come back, but if you hold aversion for them, the only thing which will stay in your life is regret. So don’t do that ever. Make them free and love them unconditionally.
5) Be Conscious about your Future
At one point of time, one need really have to be smart about owning something. NO, I am talking about any materialistic things but to own an intellectual knowledge about things you are fascinated about. At the end of the day, your talent and skills are going to feed your stomach. So be smart. Always.
6) Treat People Generously, this life is small
We all are human beings, today someone is on the top but don’t always think that it will be the same always. Never. If you have got something in you, and people admire that just smile and be grateful to God for giving you that talent, and to all the people who loves you for your work. Don’t show them attitude, because you are nothing if they don’t praise you. Whatever you are is because of them. Try to be good with them. Inspire them to be like you. Help them when they need you. And you will be lived in their heart forever.
7) Accept the Fact that Life is Unfair
I have met a lot of people who mostly complains about life that they don’t get what they wanted. I have experienced the worst case in my life where I was begging for that one thing, but life did not want that. So it took away the love of my life, or I should say my entire life. She is gone now. Forever. I neither get her back nor the love she showered on me for years.
I knew it was unfair. But where should I go to fight with? Is there someone who would listen to me? Is there anyone who would fulfill all my desires all the time? The answer is crystal clear, NO.
Just accept the fact and get over it.
8) Don’t be a Self-Obsessed Person in Life
Never ever get preoccupied with your own life and situations all the time, if you are, then get ready for some twist in your life. It is a time when you need to work for someone in a company, there would be a lot of people who might not think the way you think, they will disagree with your points which will make you sad or who knows you hold grudges for them for the entire life. But just sit back and think, isn’t it a stupidity? YES, IT IS.
Try to avoid getting too involved in your own world, respect the view of others and they will do the same to you. Try to learn from them, even if they are wrong (At least, you will never repeat that, right?) And this is the way you will start growing for your own self. You will become smarter. You will act accordingly in every situation. And most importantly the capacity of your decision making power will increase all of a sudden.
9) Make the Best Result in Whatever You Do
No matter whatever you are doing/pursuing whether it is study, job, or any business out your 100% efforts even if you fail at some attempts. Just don’t be a spoiled little kid who thinks who can do anything in the world. Surely, you can. But you need to start from somewhere.
10) Be extra prepared when you are responsible for any work
In the last year, I have done many events by my own and in collaboration as well. I was a learner most of the times because of lack of knowledge about things, but today those learning are blessings for me when I do my work even without anyone’s guidance. So be enthusiastic. Be prepared. Nobody loves when you don’t learn from your mistakes and keep on doing that again and again. It will show if you are an amateur or a pro.
11) Don’t be a Procrastinator
Things will not get easier by putting them off, it is better to get them finished as soon as possible. Don’t be a procrastinator.
12) People are Different. Accept that.
In a lot of situations in my life, I have blamed people that they don’t understand me. But is it the real problem? No. Because that is the same way he/she thinks about you. The best option available here for us is to accept the fact that people are different with different point of views.
13) Bad People will get their punishment
If people do bad to you don’t try to retaliate. They will eventually get their results. Haven’t you heard that saying, Karma is a bitch?
14) Always do something for your own self
When I meet people who say why do you write every day? How can you? And I say, I create something of value with my write-ups.
15) And last but not the least, always love unconditionally.
THANKS FOR BEING ALWAYS THERE
It is my luck or what I don’t know that I get such love from you all, but all I know is whatever I am today is because of you all. If you would not be there to read, love, and criticize my writing then I would not have improved with the time. Thanks a ton to you for always being there. I love you all. 🙂
So, today Sumit is going to enter in 22nd year of his life. May God bless everyone.
