Do you contradict yourself?
Yes, I do!
I contradict myself on many things I believed in my past. I find, with time, I no longer believe on them. In fact, I have cultivated new beliefs over the period of time.
And it’s perfectly okay to arrive at new viewpoints about things and dropping the old opinions! 🙂
Everything is a story. The way we narrate it, the way we comprehend it – shapes the circle of our life.
If the center of life is displaced, check the script, dialogue delivery of the story you are narrating in your mind!
Can you tell an event in many different ways?
Have you tried?
Did you think of a certain event, and tried describing it in different ways- in different perspectives?
Try out, it’s interesting!
Recently, I read a status by one of my dear friend and Coach (Sukhi Logia) which said –
‘We are slowly turning into a society that is agreeing with pessimistic people who have a habit of complaining’
The saying hit me hard. Am I the one, who is also contributing to this?
If I look at my list of complaints in past one month, I find that I have repeatedly broadcasted my dissatisfaction and annoyance over same things, again and again before people. I remember that when I grumbled over things, I became less and less ungrateful for good things/ events in my life.
I learned from past events, that the more we are grateful for life – the less we complain. And vice versa.
No, I am not going to pronounce ‘imperfect’ so slowly, that it gives the sense that ‘i’m perfect’ 😉 Because the fight is all about ‘Who’s is more perfect?’ Let’s drop this issue of projecting our perfectness before others, and acknowledging the whole – the dark and the light.
I have flaws. I have weak areas. I don’t know many things. I make mistakes on a regular basis. I have mood swings. I fear. I am not positive and happy all the time. In all, I am not perfect. And I am comfortable with it.
Let’s begin to accept our imperfect self otherwise, how can we improve?
And also begin to learn to encourage and allow others to appreciate their imperfect self, otherwise, how will they open and get comfortable in their expressions?
There are so many things which can trigger your irritation level. When I checked the things which kinda creates irritation within me I found there’s one thing which makes me go mad 😀 and that’s – STALKING! 😉
I hate the habit of stalking other people’s lives. It seems that those who follow closely other people’s lives through social media (and many other ways) don’t create something interesting in their own lives!
What irritates you?
Well, ‘I’ can be very destructive. I realized this while coming across people who behaved completely opposite of my hidden expectations from them. It made me very upset. It made me think ‘Why me?’ This I is so destructive, that it always wants people to behave as per our convenience. And when something surprisingly opposite happens, it enforces us to feel heartbroken.
Very recently, one such incident took with me.In seconds of time, the hurricane of ‘expectations broken’ type of highly judgmental thoughts filled my mind. I kept noticing the waves of thoughts rising within me. In the meanwhile, I went to take bath. I ate my breakfast then and I listened to music too. After doing these three activities, everything evaporated. The fog of stupid thoughts was gone in the quiet light of ‘pause’
I understood the magnificence and power of a pause.
Taking a pause brings the clarity that – we are not our thoughts! And Life is much more than accumulating the baggage of others!
