Aww..esome moment

That moment when people (some one) remember you, recognize you, identify you (not because of your external beauty) because of the impact/inner shift you have created in them through your conversation /inner qualities/attitude.

One such moment recently happened with me..and all I could do was to humbly bow down to the existence!

3 Simple advice to my 17 year old self

If I have to give 3 simple advice to my younger 17 year old self, it would be the following : 

Tell the Universe

Write as descriptively as possible to what you want/what you want to experience/ what you want to do/ how you want to live/where you want to go/ to whom you want to associate etc. Don’t be lazy in describing your deepest desires on a sheet of paper. Tell the universe as elaborately as possible about your thoughts. Words are extremely powerful, be fearless, honest and open in transferring your inner feelings onto paper. 

Be Grateful 

Be grateful for the –

Sun shine, peace, parents, relatives, lessons, challenges, love, risks, comforts, luxuries, internet, water, clothes, friends, flowers, food, taste buds, music, gadgets, siblings, guidance, stars, nights, tears, laughter, life and death. Cultivate the attitude of gratitude for everything.

Take one step : Do it

Action is a crucial part of life. And our actions are regulated by our thought process. Remember Newton’s first law – A body in rest continues to be in rest, and, a body in motion continues to be in motion. Same applies to our habit of getting things done. 

Whenever mind says, No!! It’s a huge task, postpone it….get up immediately and take the smallest step (to break the state of rest!). For example, you planned to woke up at 5 am, however, you got up at 7 am (the mind will make you feel that you lost it! You could not get up at the scheduled time…you are failure…etc!). Break the loop immediately! How? Start your day with one small victory : make your bed!

Would like to know, what you would advice to your younger self !

Your take on love! 

I was watching a short video in which a man states that he loves eating fish.

And the other person claims, that the man doesn’t loves fish, he loves himself. Since, the fish tastes good to him, he goes all the way to take out the 🐠 from water!

And this is not love towards fish, it’s love towards self. Gratifying self! 

This made me think about what love is then?!

I feel that love is about giving. And we can only give, when our cup is fully filled! 

I would like to know your take on love?

May be one day I could tell her! 

Two days before :

I danced in joy as I came to know that the beautiful little cat I clicked few months back was selected as a piece of art to be framed in a Photography exhibition in my city. 

I looked for the cat in the campus to thank her for the compassionate pose. 

Today :

 My heart wept as I saw that cat again, struggling to walk with three legs. My piece of art was before me, however, I could not jump with joy. 

I wanted to stop her. 

I wanted to run and kiss her legs. 

I wanted to hold her into my arms and give her tight hug. 

I wanted to ask her, how it happened to you. Who did it! 

However, I could not!

My legs were frozen.

I cried. 

All I could do was to pray for her in silence! 

May be one day I could build the courage to tell her how perfect she’s is in my ♥. 

Let the message be clear 

It takes guts to say –

I don’t know. 

I haven’t heard this before. 

I am not comfortable in this environment. 

I appreciate the good qualities in you. 

I am still learning, I am not the master. 

I need your support. 

I am not shopaholic.

The list goes on and on.. 

Guts I said, because, many of us don’t speak up with clear message (and waste time in giving hints) with the fear of being ‘judged’! 

The point I intend to make here is when we tell- how we feel about something while conversing (on any issue) with someone, it makes the life of the next person simpler. S/he knows about what’s going inside your mind! 

Keeping the word ‘assumption/assume’out of the dictionary for healthy relationships is an essential habit to cultivate. 

Habits of people who have grown in their lives

Habits create difference. And there are some habits I have witnessed/experienced in those who have grown in their lives. 

Growth makes us geneuine. 

We learn to skip over exaggeration of things.

We hold onto the inner voice. 

We do things out of love & not for love. 

We build and strengthen our little circle of friends and family.

We work on ourselves and also help others to do their work of art. 

We don’t induldge into the good and bad, instead, we switch frquently to gratitude mode. 

We love formal dresses, however, stay far away from formalities.
