Girls are often given a stencil to shape their personality and character, by the much judgmental society. They’re “supposed” to beautiful, well mannered, soft spoken and meek. They’re expected to be all dramatic, very concerned about their hair and make-up and bitchy on the inside. Well that’s the recipe made by society and it takes hell lot of tolerance dealing with it. It actually becomes a tough task which proves that it would be a challenge for boys to even think of it. Amongst all this situation, one must manage to take out time for the real accomplishments in life and not some social hokum. They could turn out be life-changers, even life-saver!
1. A FRIEND THAT’S LIKE A SISTER
Every girl needs a BFF that will never be replaced by a man, ever. Some friends, even “besties” as they say, are transient but finding that one person whom you trust and love like a sister is something you should definitely try to accomplish in life. There are always some things that you just can’t ask your guy, maybe some weird girl moment or about his secret birthday party you’re planning, she’ll always be there for you.
2. LIVE WITH NO REGRETS
Sometimes circumstances (your boyfriend, new friend circle, etc.) can hold you back from doing things in your life that you otherwise would have wanted to do. Make sure that you don’t let them control your mood, your decision making, or your happiness. Live your life with no regrets, being the real you.
3. BE KIND TO YOURSELF
You are worthy and you are special. No matter how a man has ever made you feel, one thing you need to promise yourself is that you will accomplish a feeling of self-love. Be confident and comfortable with your soul. Confidence and comfort combined can bring light to the world and you must try to be that light!
4. DO SOMETHING OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE
We all know that one person who does totally crazy stuff. Think about that person, and take inspiration! Pick out a thing that once made you say, “I’ll never do this” and do it! As crazy as this sounds, this experience would actually help you exploring yourself on various levels!
5. TAKE YOURSELF OUT ON DATES
Every girl needs to take herself out on a date. Have you been wanting to get your nails done for a while but just haven’t found the time? Have you been eyeing something at the store but nobody’s free to go with you? Well, take your cute little self out on a date and spend the day doing something that you love to do. If you’re a foodie like me, go for a “all day street food eating day”, it feels so good, not to mention heavy!
6. GO AFTER THAT JOB YOU WANT
Don’t limit yourself to anything. Don’t put yourself in a box. And DO NOT, AT ALL, run in the race because everyone around is running, get me? If you’ve been wanting a Celebrity Assistant job or an Art related job or whatever your style and flavor is, go out and get it! Set the intention and accomplish it. Obviously, this doesn’t need to happen today or tomorrow, but put it on your bucket list of things to accomplish in your life!
7. LAUGH AT YOUR MISTAKES
Last point and a pretty important pre-requisite to move ahead in life. Don’t sweat the small stuff, or the big stuff. Not worth it. When something happens to you in your life that you can’t control, the best medicine is laughing at yourself (maybe not right away). It’s the same logic as tragedies given some time become funny memories. You can’t control things and the best news is that you don’t have to always try and control things. Biggest life lesson is to accept that you are allowed to make mistakes, heck, it’s healthy to make mistakes. It’s how you grow mature!
Obviously this list could keep going because every girl must accomplish a lot of things in life, but these are the few that we personally feel, are absolutely must-dos for every girl. Life is too boring if you don’t have challenges. Find something that meets this list and just do it. Cooking class; cake decorating class; swimming lessons; painting; horse back riding…anything! What do you feel most drawn to? Whatever that thing is, go do it. Always remember, you’re amazing!
