10 Happy Moments of My Life 1. The first time I held my baby sister in my arms.  I was happy I had someone I could bully! 2. The first time I saw the Eiffel Tour twinkle.  There is nothing about Paris that didn’t fascinate me: the wine, the fashion, the culture, the gastronomy and the people (especially the men!) Then first time I saw the Eiffel tour was like a long awaited dream come true! The better part, I sponsored my own trip! 3. When I brought my first puppy home and my life has never been the same! My dogs have taught me to love selflessly and to always look where I put my foot (if I don’t, its usually in dog poo) 4. When I entered Disneyland! The first thing on my bucket list was going to Disneyland since I could probably spell ‘Disneyland’! I was longing to go to the happiest and most magical place on Earth! Going there with the love of my life made this experience even better. 5. When I met my childhood friend after many years over drinks and realized distance didn’t ch

5 Things I Learned in my 20s

I was young, wild and carefree in my 20s and had one motto in life – experience everything at least once in my life with no regret and irrespective of its consequences and repercussions. As I inch closer to turning 30 next year in February, the world went into a lockdown and it gave me ample amount of time for self-reflection, soul-searching and making lifestyle changes to condition my mind as to how I want to shape the next 50yrs of my future life. The following is a list of 5 things/lessons that I learned in my 20s from life:- 1. Restrict your Social Circle You can have a hundred fair-weather friends but once you identify your core set of five to ten people whom I refer to as “permanents”, that’s enough to sustain a happy and fulfilled life. Of course! Lesser the friends, lesser is the drama. Oh! I’m a lucky man, To count on both hands, The ones I love, Some folks just have one, Yeah, others they got none, Stay with me, Let’s just breathe 2. It is okay to FAIL!

10 Easy Steps to Monetize your Blog

Lastly, insert plug-ins like page views, labels, follow button, subscribe to email button, blog archive, search this blog, popular posts, about me, ad sense and report abuse button. 2. Complete your Profile If a reader likes your article, they would like to know more about you (author). Therefore, it is very important to complete your About Me section of the blog. Basic details like gender, industry, occupation, location, introduction and interests like books, music and movies. 3. Don’t find your niche Everybody says find a niche but if you want to stand out, create content on a variety of topics like news, politics, business, life, romance, sports, food, travel and fashion so that it meet the needs of a larger audience. 4.

#1 Stairway to Heaven (Led Zeppelin) It's a musical masterpiece and the solo is awesome. Each part played in the song has a unique flavor, complicated amazing drum rhythms, lightning struck guitar, masterful playing and soul searching passionate vocals. #2 Bohemian rhapsody (Queen) This is a song with absolutely no chorus, an operatic section, a ballad in the beginning and hard rock in the end. It pushed the boundaries of music to its fullest and Freddie did things never seen before. By far one of the greatest rock songs of all time. #3 Comfortably numb (Pink Floyd) Wonderful and inspiring lyrics, a haunting mix of Water's and Gilmour's vocals, beautiful keyboard, organ parts from Richard Wright, lovely mellow drums from Nick Mason and all of it topped off by two extraordinary solos from David Gilmour. This song is the ultimate psychedelic rock classic. #4 Smells like teen spirit (Nirvana) Kurt Cobain is a music God

Here’s a list to keep you engaged and make your day productive. 1. Physical exercise I cannot emphasize enough about how essential it is to start your day with some exercise, workout regime, yoga or meditation. Physical activity is known to improve your muscle strength, boost endurance and your overall health and quality of life. I have gained 16 kgs since lockdown began and it’s time to shed some weight and I've chosen cycling as the way to do it. 2.  Read a book Reading is important because it helps you grow emotionally, mentally and psychologically.
