The idea behind this LIFELONG Mind Exercise is to stay in continuous awareness of how beautiful your life is.
All you need to do is make an extensive list (with precise dates, if possible) of your Good Memories. Try to write them in the chronological order. (Here, I've written them in the reverse chronological order).
Write them in your Journal (using Pen & Paper) OR type them. However, these should be accessible to you forever.
If you don't remember the exact date, you may mention the Month / Year.
This is an Ongoing Mind Exercise, in which you will not only write your Good Memories, but also refer to this list whenever you feel like.
♦ If the day you met your ex-Boyfriend was beautiful, but eventually things did not work out, remember that that memory (of the day you met) can still go into this list, because you felt good on that day. However, you need to mention it very specifically.
♦ Want more examples? Ask me queries on WhatsApp.
My Good Memories
|Had the most rousing Hike, ever!|
|Even more special than the Shirkoli Road Excursion. I was planning to go there - this time in the car, not only because the road was good, but also because driving in the car is a completely different experience from riding on a bike. Halted much before - at a nice view, the dried part of the backwater, but lush green - and discovered that the place is called Sonapur. Made a video for YouTube, clicked many photos, and had a nice time among buffalos! Then drove up to the same Shirkoli road spot, and clicked a few more photos. The white shirt was nice, and it suddenly became special.|
|This Sunday was special. I took my Grazia, and went on a long ride. On the way itself I had the thought of trying for a new place (a formerly visited Shirkoli road suddenly came to my mind). Went ahead, and had an enjoyable time at a new place.|
|Blog | Instagram ← Featured as a Favorite Single on ROMEO's Valentine's Day special Blog.|
|One of those best days, again! Took a Poll, and created a new Instagram Page: @dancewithsagar Wasn't sure, if Instagram would support it. Asked the Universe for a small indication (at least). Got the indication. The video that had got 70 Views in 4 hours was given 2,000+ Views in 2 hours on the new account. Also, YouTube announced that they will hide the Dislike Count from videos, because of its abuse by certain groups of users. I unhid the User Ratings (i.e. Likes) from all my videos.|

(This is so much in alignment with the YouTube videos that I make for the LGBT Community, besides, ROMEO is one of the most genuine Dating Apps.)

(Just casually sent him a photo, and he featured it for FREE.)
|Completed 7 days of Penis Reset effortlessly. Gifted myself 2 pairs of Levi's underwear from Surya Seconds SALE.|

|CEFR Level C1 (IELTS Band 8) (2021). This was during the Second Wave. Less traffic / crowd. Only 5 other (young) students were there. Such a nice experience. Took me back to my College & Office days. [Venue: Insignia, 3rd Floor (302- 305), 46 Sasoon Road, Opp. Manikchand Icon, Near Wadia College]|

|5th & 6th Jan, 2021 were awesome. Spent them Solo. Visited Seasons & Amanora Malls (my favorites) on the 5th, and shopped in H&M, bought a pair of Jeans, ate a Burger. So much fun. Visited Phoenix Mall on the 6th after more than a year, and shopped again in H&M, ate Chaat, and returned. Walked a lot. Had a really really NICE time.|
|Solo Long Ride on my new Honda Grazia. Such a unique and awesome experience. Made a unique video, showing the ride:|
|Made my eighth Tattoo (bikini line - right side). Rahul & Nilesh were so warm and friendly, and they treated me with two cups of delicious Hot Coffee. They also gave me a HUGE discount, because it was my eighth tattoo with them. Those were really some nice, friendly, and affectionate moments. The both of them are damn adorable!!|

|Discovered Durugdara road, and recorded a couple of Tik Tok videos at the awesome and serene location.|
|Went to Pu. La. Garden (had a double-mind, but my Inner Being naturally took me). My regular bench was occupied, so sat on another one. A 'foreigner' asked me if he could sit on the vacant side. I said, 'Sure'. I initiated the conversation, asking where he was from. He was Elia (from Italy), spiritually inclined, working with a Global Spiritual Organization. Had a wonderful interaction for nearly 1.5 hours.|
|The Bangkok MRT's new extensions were new. I wanted to go to Wat Pho via Sanam Chai. Sought a Thai lady's help, who was also going in the same direction. She was to get down at a stop before mine. Just before alighting the MRT, she looked at me (from a distance) and said, "Bye" in such a sweet, caring, and kind way that tears (of Connection) started instantly rolling down my cheeks.|
|Had this sumptuous BK Veggie at Burger King, The Market, Bangkok, and took the Boat Ride (cheapest) to Wat Saket. Watch the video here: youtu.be/LN5KiY1Oa-o. For the first time I made an elaborate Vlog walking up, and also went on the terrace for the first time. Had a very memorable and great day.|
|SpiceMax - My first semi-luxurious travel. Very very spacious seats. Lots of food. A comfortable cushion & blanket. The best travel, despite it being late at night. The Cabin Crew girls were constantly giving me food to eat. Watch the video here: https://youtu.be/f5R4E64nWl8|
|Probably for the first time, ever, I bought clothes worth INR 16,000/- for myself. That discounted to INR 12,000/- though. This was at United Colors of Benetton, Camp. Totally unplanned visit.|
|Went to Hubli (17 KMs from Dharwad) to check out the city, to see if I can find something to Shop (and did), and (most importantly) to watch Kalank.|
|For the first time, ever, drove down from Pune to Dharwad. Mum was already there for my Grandmother's post-demise rituals. My primary motivation was the good road. See the post here: https://www.instagram.com/p/BwlbdBfnftY. It was a wonderful and hassle-free 8-hour-long Solo Drive.|
|Popat Manu came to my balcony, and visited daily for a couple of months. Read the full story on Instagram (ID: sagarsonker)|

|I remember my 2nd Thailand (Bangkok / Krabi) trip when I hear the song "Dheemi Dheemi Si" from Gulaab Gang. I'd watched the movie with mum a week before traveling to Thailand, and this song just takes me back to Bangkok City Inn, Krabi, ibis Siam. It is simply wonderful.|

|Saw Madhuri Dixit for the first time at Nach Baliye. She was the Guest Judge promoting Aaja Nachle.|
|I was going to collect my HSC Marksheet. I went to the room where all other classmates were going, but I was asked to go to the Principal's Office. I think I knew why, but was still shivering (was hardly 18 years old). That's when the Principal patted my back saying that I've stood 8th in the Pune HSC Board. My cousin (Sonali) was with me, and she was more excited and happy than me. We came back home, and she shouted from the road all up to my mother on the 4th floor that I've stood 8th.|
|Social Service Period, when we all had gone down on the Ground for planting trees. Some of us were sitting under a tree, when Rahul came from behind and kissed my right cheek. I was Shocked and Happy at the same time. I still vividly remember that feeling.|
