Take a look at all the things in your house. Are they bringing any value to your life? Are they even close to you? Do you use them? Your room would probably be filled with things that you don’t use or don’t bring any value to your life. Imagine a life without those unnecessary things. Pretty plain and boring. Right? Not really. Humans have created a belief that is to love things and use people.
Loving things will give you temporary happiness because as soon as things are finished, we crave them again and plead for them, and if we don’t get it, we are disappointed or angry. While on the other hand, if we love people with a true heart, happiness lasts forever. People crave things so much and so that without them, they are not able to survive. Imagine people can’t live without water, food, and now people can’t live without things! Doesn’t it look a little silly?
Honestly, I thought the same. I felt that things were the most important for me. My entire room was filled with things I didn’t really need, but for some reason, I just felt like holding on to them.
A question that we could ask ourselves is, do we need all these things? Do they bring any value to my life? And in my case, the answer for most things was no. I tried to understand that all my items were necessary, but inside I knew they weren’t, and I am sure you know that too.
Minimalism is all about giving away the things you don’t need, clearing away the clutter. It doesn’t mean that you clear the clutter and then repurchase new things. It means just make your life straightforward. To simply remove the clutter and not put more again. This is a vast and challenging step, but in the end, it gives you peace of mind. Even though I haven’t successfully accomplished this minimalism step, I did try, and we all can.

Everyone has the freedom to dream. It is a beautiful and soulful experience. Children of our age have dreams to become someone according to their likings and expect their parents to help them pursue it. Hence, parents should encourage their children to dream and contribute to the process of fulfilling the same. When parents have different expectations from their children, they do not realize they knowingly or unknowingly put their children under pressure. As a result, the child, in fear of disappointing their parents, forget about their dreams and start following what their parents want them to be. However, these people sometimes are not successful because their heart does not follow them, and their mind is not accepting it. As a child, I also dream of becoming a Sports Star. I love playing sports. I’m passionate about basketball, badminton, and cricket. If you have the determination and are mentally strong, you’ll surely be successful. Last but not least, parents should understand

The Joy of Learning Diaries is a website where students can post their reflections on My Good School’s reading program every Sunday. They can literally post anything they want. We publish the Joy Of Learning Diaries, and our blogs go in an extensive diary where many students can post. We connect the Joy Of Reading with the joy of writing by - What we read in the reading session we reflect upon by writing. What we have written can be converted into a podcast (audio file) - Joy of Speaking. That is how My Good School connects the three joys. In school, we learn academics, but at My Good School, we help improve and enhance the primary interests. We experience the joy of writing, reading and speaking.
