Are the best days of your life truly over?

What if you could learn from the past and use those lessons to sculpt a better tomorrow?

Hello lovely!

Welcome to your brand new dose of Be Your Best Friend with Anangsha: the weekly newsletter that never stops learning how to live a more fulfilled life.

A few days ago, I wrote an article regarding how you can learn valuable lessons from your past and recreate the best days of your life. Essentially, it’s a 3-step process that will require a lot of reflection and self-work from your side. With these exercises in mindfulness, you can recreate the magic of the happiest days of your life:

  1. Reflect on the past and try to understand the elements that contributed to your happiness.

  2. Recreate those emotions by treating yourself to similar experiences.

  3. Make these new routines a part of your life so you can accommodate self-care in your busy routine.

With this new mindset, you can conquer any dark phase. The best days of your life don’t have to be some mystical past you’ll ever get back.

You can choose to live the best days of your life starting today.

An article I thoroughly enjoyed reading:

A quote I loved:

“Places do not lose their identity, however far one travels. It is the heart that begins to erode over time. The face in the hotel mirror seems blurred some mornings, as if by too many casual looks. By ten the sheets will be laundered, the carpet swept. The names on the hotel registers change as we pass. We leave no trace as we pass on. Ghostlike, we cast no shadow.”
Joanne Harris, Chocolat

I recently finished this literary masterpiece and loved every bit of it. As the first line of the blurb proclaims, this isn’t a book that you read. It’s a book you try, test, then taste. You can read my full review here.
