Ten Things I Should Have Learned By Now

Hey there,

So recently, I decided to start making lists. Not to-do lists. But lists about anything that is vaguely related to me in any way.

This list,  ‘ Ten Things I Should Have Learned By Now’, is actually inspired by someone I admire very much. Her name is Sarah Kay, she’s a poet and she performs spoken word poetry as well. I would love to tell you more about her ( because I think she’s amazing!), but I think I’ve digressed enough.  (But you can still check out her videos on YouTube or search for her on Google.)

Now onto that list……

Ten Things I Should Have Learned By Now

  • I should have learned how to start and actually have a conversation with someone ( other than myself and my family) without it getting awkward.
  • I should have learned that I’m beautiful. Probably not by world or social standards,  but beautiful in a way that only I can be.
  • I should have learned how to make nice omelettes without getting any part burnt.  I seriously don’t know why I can’t do this by now. Scrambled eggs are just way easier ( and nicer too,  if you want my opinion).
  • That friends may come and go. Especially the best ones. But memories don’t.
  • That there will be problems.  But having problems doesn’t mean I’ll have a bad day. That there will be bad days.  But bad days don’t mean bad weeks. And that there will be bad weeks. But bad weeks don’t mean bad months either.
  • I should have learned that it’s better to do things right away. Stalling and postponing the things I need to do won’t actually make them go away. ( Procrastination = My Number #2 Enemy).
  • That no one controls how and what I feel. Except I want them to. I’m the one in control of all my actions ( or reactions).
  • That it’s nice to be nice to people. Even if they’re mean.
  • I should’ve learned that if I feel like it,  it’s perfectly okay to dance in public. Even though people are staring looking. Even though I might look awkward.
  • And finally, I should have learned that God loves me no matter what. No matter how many times I mess things up, He still loves me. And always will.


And that’s it!

Do feel free to write what you think about my list in the comment section below. You can also write your own list,  if you like. I’d love to see them.

 I resolute to….

  •  Finish everything I have on my to-do list for each day.
  • Stop procrastinating.
  • Avoid using the word ‘don’t ‘ or any other negative word as much as possible.
  • Be as positive as I can be.
  • Run everyday.
  • Stretch everyday.
  • Spend at least 20 minutes with God each day.
  • Meditate everyday.
  • Post at least once everyday.
  • And finally, smile more ( because it’s contagious 😀)


  • Upload 50 (yes! 50!) blog posts at the end of this month of September. 
  • Increase my running speed.
  • Do something nice for at least 10 different people by the end of the month.
  • And lastly, put at least 30 hours into personal study ( for the whole month) 


So there they are,  my resolutions and goals for this month. It’s something I thought I would try out, since I’m starting a new school year very soon ( in the next two weeks) and I thought it would be nice to start with some goals in mind.

I would love to see your own resolutions or goals or maybe even both,  so do feel free to leave them in the comment section below.

Thanks for reading!

Love, Ima 😘

Hey there,

So this is a pretty short list of my favorite things that make me really happy.  Feel free to tell me what also makes you happy in the comment section below.

First up is….

  • Making other people happy 😊( Is it only me or does making other people smile make you smile too?)

Next is…

  • Running 🏃 ( or stair-climbing or jogging or sometimes just walking for a really long time. It calms me. In a weird way.) 


  • Dancing 💃(This is usually accompanied by a bit of singing. Actually, sometimes it’s a lot of singing. I just really like dancing.) 

I can’t forget…

Praising / Praying to God 🙏 (although it’s a different kind ofhappiness, there’s no mistaking it. Praying certainly makes me happy.) 


And last but not least….

  • Being appreciated  👏( doesn’t everyone like a bit of praise once in a while?) 

So there it is.  My Top five things that make me instantly happy. Hope you liked it. Don’t forget to write yours in the comment section. Thanks.

With love, Ima 😘
