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 my WhatsApp Group.
My Good Memories
|Saw a (straight) guy - living in the same building - playing Cricket on the Terrace. Very simple and average, but a perfect husband-material. Had this Clear Thought for the very first time, "Husband ho toh aisa...". Looks aren't important... as long as he loves me, I don't need anything else.|
|Lockdown 4.0 started on a sweet note: Danced on "Parbat Se Kaali Ghata Takraayi" in heavy rains.|
|Caught the Indian Shikra (gray sparrow hawk) in my Camera. Went up to 15 feet close. Such a sweet experience.|
|My Tik Tok video 'Support LGBT, not just the Concept of LGBT!' was appreciated by many.|
|Did my first ever Blood Donation, for those in need during the Pandemic. Great feeling.|
|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)|
|20th to 27th - This was my Baiyoke Sky Hotel, Bangkok trip. I associate the "Main Happy Happy Hoon" song from Blackmail (2018) with this trip. It was an awesome trip. Had a great time on the 66th floor.|
|My Baby (Dwarf) Laughing video went viral on Musical.ly Received 100K Likes.|
|Went to the Central Plaza (Mall) after extending my Thai Tourist VISA. Found Pizza Hut and ate the PERFECT Veg Pizza (with unlimited Coke refills, and shopped a lot thereafter. One of my most memorable and sweet moments.|
|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.|
|Finally, met Madhuri Dixit. Read more at www.madhurifan.com|
|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.|
