Hi everyone. I really really hope that you all are doing good. Since I don’t post too many personal posts here and to be honest I don’t like writing about personal stuff here but months ago I did a Q/A session on Instagram and there somebody asked me “what are the things you can’t live without?” and I noted this question in my notebook and now after don’t know how many days, that specific question caught my eye again and I just thought okay let’s write a post on it because it’ll be quite fun not just for me to write but for readers as well.
Here are 10 things that I can’t live without, things that are essential you know!
Yes I know family is not a “thing” specifically but trust me I can’t imagine my life without my parents, siblings. I had to live 20 days without my parents and nobody knew what was going inside me. Nobody could see the pain but only me. It felt so hard at that time that I used to cry at night when nobody was watching. Me and my sister used to discuss how parents mean so much to us and how can people actually live without them. Okay seriously life’s nothing without them so yes number one has to be my family.
Next is my friends because they are an essential part of my life as well. Not every friend but most loyal ones, specially those who know everything about you from the start and know who you are. You don’t have to describe yourself you know……..for me those are my school friends. We are still in touch and they are my best friends. Can’t imagine my life without them. Special mention for them—- Sana, Ayesha, Zarbakht, Maha and to everyone else, I love you guys. OK?
Also I have this ability to make friends easily and then I don’t wanna lose them ever like everrrrr but you know what my first impression is always rude, arrogant etc etc. God knows whyyyyyyy.
Oh yes…….books. Another essential. My love for books is very old but the fact that it has evolved over the years is so much satisfying, ah my true love. Books have taught me so much. I have cried, laughed, imagine and what not just because of books. It’s a WHOLE journey and these days I am free because vacations so everyday either I am reading or eating, that’s it. Nothing more, nothing less. Somebody asked, “what makes you happy?” and without even thinking I said books and food and I can’t explain how true is this.
I have not talked about it much but I am really really passionate about blogging and that is why I call it my “happy place”,
I never knew that I would be saying this but actually it’s true. Writing your idea on the paper and figuring out things and when you finally hit that publish button you feel free, that feeling is undescribable. I love what I am doing and can’t wait to share more with you all. Thank you for showering me with so much love. I hope I’ll be able to continue making you all happy.
5) MY PHONE
Actually it’s not a must but sometimes I feel like it’s necessary because you stay connected to the world. Now that I check emails and blog from phone, I feel like it’s essential. Also not to forget, my public Instagram account. You have to post everyday and as a blogger you have to post stories and keep your followers updated because otherwise there will be no growth in terms of new followers or engagement on your posts so yes it’s really important for me now then it was before. Another reason is that I use my phone to take pictures and I love taking pictures specially of sky, food and all things nature so yeah.
I am not someone who’s addicted to tea but i can’t function without it aswell like I don’t know how to explain it but I really want it in the morning. No good morning is better than the one that a cup of tea says. So it’s like hey, I can’t live without ya! Wait let me elaborate it more and I find it so relatable,
” If you’re cold, tea will warm you; if you’re too heated, it will cool you; if you’re depressed, it will cheer you; if you are excited, it will calm you.”
7) FUN AND NICE CONVERSATIONS
You talk to people daily but you can’t call every conversation fun and nice. You are getting it right? Everyday you need someone to talk to about random things, about life and you feel like if that’ll not happen, you’ll explode. That’s exactly what I go through. Whenever I feel like I just talk to my mother about life and blah blah blah but mostly i text my friend because she has amazing sense of humor (which helps actually) , she has that ability to continue what you are talking about so it gets better and better. Sometimes all you want is a light, fun conversation and nothing else. You feel me? Anyways moving to the next……
Can you live without positivity? I can’t. It can be in any form. A positive thought, a positive message, quote like anything which reminds you of who you are. This is certainly one of the ten things I can’t live without like maybe i’ll be able to breathe but I would be dead inside without it.
9) AN ESCAPE
Escape, something we all do in whatever way but we do. Maybe not everyday but it’s very necessary to just sit down and plan. It can be in the form of painting, reading, watching, anything that can be escape from everyday life in a good way. Some me time maybe which is necessary in order to get your mind off from all the hustle and bustle happening around.
Well I can’t think of anything else and at the same time I can’t miss food and sleep because guys i can’t live without these not because I am a human being but because I love love love eating and sleeping. I don’t sleep because I get tired, I sleep because I love it. You feel me? And same is the case with food, good food is something that I live for and I am sure you all can relate to it aswell. All I do is eat, sleep and read these days and let me tell you I am a pro at it. Yo!
That’s it. These are the 10 things that i can’t live without. I really hope you guys enjoyed reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. Tell me yours in the comments below. I’m waiting 💜 lotsa love.
