I’m beginning with a combination of new habits, which may sound different, however, they are closely interconnected.
For the next 100 days I’ll focus on the habit of writing every thing, (small, big, trivial, significant etc.) noting down things which pops over my mental screen and tickles my heart.
And for this, the tools I’ll use is :
1.Journal/notebook : Take it wherever I go.
2.Small cards : Note down small moments of joy and drop it in a handmade box.
3.Expression :Express love and gratitude towards life and people through gratitude notes and love letters. Tell people how much they matter to me.
April 2016 was devoted to judging less.
The journey was an eye opener for me. I realized how my mind is working on default settings of ‘judging’ people, events and my own self every now and then.
First fifteen days of the month were like a seesaw, where I slipped back to ‘judging mode’ then returned back to ‘letting go’ mode and struggled with finding the balance. After that, I got loaded with research work and got lost in meeting some project deadlines and then it was like – ‘Time hee nahi hai Judge karne ko!’
I learned that whenever our lifestyle will be directed with something higher, then judgement will sound ‘aaivayeen’ and whenever our routine will lack that direction we’ll end up being a ‘panchaayati‘
I began monthly focus series with an intention to give my attention to one thing for a length of time.
The whole March was devoted to Gratitude.
After ruminating over various areas, I found that these days, I’ve been too brittle in handling uncertainties and obstacles related to my research and other professional works ; which has affected my attitude (complaining/negativity) and performance in recent days.
So, decided to focus on building Gratitude part of the whole day.
Before this month, I used to express my gratitude only in the morning. However, by the end of the month, I’ve learned to return to thankfulness every now and then. This helped me to handle the unexpected patiently and also magnified the ‘un-noticed chain of gifts life has showered on me.
I’ll continue to relax under the tune of gratitude.
Thank you dear all for your presence and connection!
