Things to do at least once in your life.


This is an image about life.

Living every day, doing our daily chores, when we pause and think. We are often surprised at how fast time passes by as we might have already lived through 20, 30, or 40 years of our lifetime. Although a considerable amount of our lives have passed, when we look back, there are several things that are left unsaid. Several things that are left undone. So many dreams that are left unscathed. 

Maybe now is the time to do some of those things, to add more meaning and experiences to our lives. 

Here are some of the things that you should do at least once in your life.

1.Own a pet:

There is nothing like being smothered by the unconditional love of an animal. Owning a pet can especially help improve your mood while having a particularly bad day. You can also practice being caring and compassionate as owning pets will require you to do so very often. What you can have as a pet is up to you. A transformation witnessed in you, in terms of loving and caring is guaranteed!

2. Live alone:

To some it may sound daunting, to some it may sound exciting. Nevertheless it's an experience one should have in their lives. Sometimes it also becomes the need of the hour to spend time alone at your place. Living alone brings in with it the sense of responsibility, adulthood and freedom unlike anything else. You can choose whatever you want to do without seeking permission from anyone. Unless you have a landlord. 

3. Buy something expensive:

How long would you keep criticising every newly launched I-Phone while intrinsically desiring to buy the same? Or anything expensive for that matter. Just go ahead and make that expensive purchase at least once in your life. Here’s a follow-up story that can encourage you to pursue the finer things in life. 

Ratan Tata, an Indian industrialist and the former chairman of Tata and sons, spoke about a friend who had the misfortune of losing his pens very often. He ended up buying and using cheap pens as a result of his worrying habit. Ratan Tata gave him the suggestion of buying the most expensive pen that he could afford and see what happens. 

His friend went on to buy a 22 carat gold cross pen. 6 months later when Ratan Tata met his friend again, he asked him about his habit of losing pens. His friend replied saying he is very cautious about his expensive pen and has managed to keep it with him till now. 

It was the value of the pen that made the difference and there was nothing wrong intrinsically with his friend. If this story doesn’t convince you to buy something expensive, nothing else can. 

4. Fall in love:

It might not be possible to plan and pursue such feelings in life. But when you do fall in love with someone you have met, embrace this beautiful feeling. What to do after you fall in love is something beyond my league. But the cliched feeling of butterflies in the stomach while you are near them, or imagining spending a lifetime with them when you are away from them. Is a moment worth living and experiencing. 

5. Help a stranger:

There are a lot of people around us who are yearning for our help with something. Donate when an opportunity presents itselves. Reach out to the lone person in the group. Avoid bargaining over petty expenses with the vegetable or fruit vendors. Lend your seat on public transport to someone who has been standing for a while. Buy food for someone. There are plenty of ways we can help as every individual has so much to offer to society. 

Although the list ends here, let your spirit keep looking for more things to do at least once in your life.
