A fight lasts only as long as the opposite person has nothing interesting to offer. Always, always, the other person has something interesting to offer. Hence, the maximum amount of time to hold grudge stands at 10 minutes
Anything you do is ‘play.’ Organizing books, newspapers and helping people in the kitchen also comes under playing
You need not always say the right thing. You can say the wrong thing, but mean the right thing (Ring-a-ring-a-roses can be ning-a-ning-a-tope)
What is important to others need not be important to you. Similarly what is important to you need not be important to others. Even if all you remember from a game of cricket is to place a stone somewhere (which was originally introduced to identify direction for bowling), it is alright.
Rules are never fun. Make your own rules, or better have none
Friends can be of all age groups. Even if the friend is 64, he has something to offer
'Sorry’ with a smile actually sets things right. Even if you cannot pronounce sorry correctly (Tho-rry)
You never hit someone smaller than you (Na-mya is 1. Hence, she will not be hit; instead she will be protected)
Eat to your heart’s content
Get messy, dirty and filthy. You are anyway going to shower
Never stop anything that is fun (Even if it means hiding in the same spot while playing hide and seek every day)
The knowledge you have is overrated (It is alright to assume that a mirror reflection is another person). But, learning is always essential (Even if it means that you point to a bookmark and ask what it is every single day)
Always run away from people who are shouting and fighting
Be comfortable in your body. In fact be comfortably naked
I’ve felt weird about nicknames for so long lmao but now a bunch of people have nicknames for me and it’s so sweet! and cute! and sweet!
like at first it’s because most people only do nicknames for me BC they can’t pronounce my name and that’s like……really gross tbh idk that makes me feel weird but.
a coworker calls me “saffe” and my best friend calls me “sathi” (which ok is still a little weird BC that’s what my parents call me but I love her so it’s ok) and a friend calls me “satts” and it’s so!!! cute!!! nicknames are cute!!!
