An ordinary realization

Eating when hungry. And enjoying every bite of it without playing with our cell phones in between.

Watching out of the window. Observing the space betwen the buildings, trees, clouds, sun rays. And soaking in the beauty of the nature.

Picking up one book. Reading page by page, slowly. Taking a pause in between to think and take a note of some of the sentences in our journal.

Taking a walk early in the morning, exchanging smiles with the fellow travelers. Slowing down to listen to the melodious group discussion of birds.

Knocking the door, asking for the permission to talk to a dear one. Discussing the matters which create conflict in the relation, talking elaborately over things which frustrates him/her (and me). A difficult conversation does simplifies and heals the wounds.

I’ve realised that when we are deeply ordinary, we become stunningly extraordinary!

People are different

People are different. They have the freedom and choice to act and behave in the way they want at a particular moment.

Take that.

Don’t freeze your opinions on that basis. Move on, enrich your mind with something inspirational and peaceful. Even a pause will work wonder!

Lost five kgs in four months

In the beginning of the year 2015, I weighed 65 kgs. And today, after nearly four months I weigh :

65 – 5 = 60 Kgs. Hurray! 😉

I began this year with an intention of cultivating the habit of early morning walk/+running.
The focus was (and is still) on building the habit, maintaining the continuity every day. The weight loss came as a by product! 🙂

These days, I’m talking to myself on preparing for running a half marathon by the end of the year. Let’s see how the things move by the end.

I’m also thinking on updating my daily routine, the little changes in diet and fitness I’ve been learning and implementing to make a healthy lifestyle shift.

After effects of complaining

When we continuously criticise and complain about :

– the place we have been placed,
– the people that enter our lives

– the food which is served on our platter

we can never understand and realise their value in our life.

When we don’t value the available resources, how can we even think of  taking out something valuable from them!

Complaining deprives us from pulsating on a higher plane of life.
