Towards the age
Time, you never spare
You heal or you bare
But it’s not that you be the same
Now and then
Only you move towards the age.
Where you keep the silent tear
During the ocean of fear
Keep my little drops of zest
to heal me
Or to bear.
Your or mine
Life is like a bottle of wine.
With years and years
It comes stronger
the taste, the smell, or the color.
A huge void is everywhere today. We don’t know where we are heading to. The void due to uncertainty of life, the void due to fear of losing someone is today’s reality. Keeping distance is the medicine of today’s illness. Gone are days when we celebrate togetherness.
Life indoors is more difficult to carry on. But we are helpless because we can not see our enemy. Was it our destiny? Millions of people taking their last breath because breathing is now the most expensive thing. Can we just play hide and seek or stand fearless in front of this pandemic?
Today being positive is no more positive. But we are positive, Positive towards a new dawn. Who will bring this new light? We together or alone? Let’s keep aside all the fear and anxiety and think about whom you are carrying in your heart now and then. Distances can not stop you to carry someone in your heart.
Although there is silence everywhere, we are still busy in our lives. We have many great deals on our heads. What will happen next? We are busy with our frustration, we are busy with our plans, gossip, anger and more. Relax and ask yourself, when there is a better option then why are all these keeping us busy? Yes, there is a better option to stay busy and it is you. You can find yourself in a new way. Listen to your heart and body, it has been whispering to you for many years. Do not ignore it as before. Spread love and care and start it with yourself.
There is no end of thoughts…to be continued..
World Book Day
A little thing can work big. A tiny word has a strong meaning. And there is a book, which can change the way of living.
Love for books is quite different. Because you are addicted to something good. A meaningful and remarkable book can steal your time like a wind. If you are a reader you acknowledge this.
On this particular day, I think people need to develop a reading habit to come out of rolling gadgets. A book never deceives you, a book never makes you feel lonely. To feed your mind, to express your self-taught, no doubt, a book is the best option. Choice is yours.
It may be a comic or a heavy biography, it may be a simple storybook or a novel, it doesn’t matter. What you love to read, that matters. It’s my opinion. What do you think about it?
A day dedicated to women
Do women need a special day to celebrate? I always have this question in my mind. Every day should be women’s day, men’s day, humans’ day. But to celebrate it especially, of course, go with it. Adore all ladies in your life a little more on this day or thank them for their existence, which makes a difference in your life.
But where are the women today? Are they happy to say a “Happy women’s day”? It’s been a long way since women fighting with enormous foes to live with dignity. When they transform a house into a home, when giving birth to a life, when they prepare a meal, have they been saluted for all? Why they need a special treat when every second a woman dies for a dowry when every day a girl child is killed in a womb of a woman itself. The way a woman said goodbye on the bank of the river Sabarmati was one of the cruel truths of today’s society. Is she one and only, no,there are millions of women still waiting for a river Sabarmati to accept her.
Time has been changed. The brain is added with beauty. When she, the woman starts to believe in herself and opens her wings to fly high, stop dragging her to her odds.
She, the woman, not just a body. Respect her existence and let the mother sleep peacefully rather than haunt her with that worry of hiding her daughter from the hungry eyes which measure her statistics.
To be very honest, I am a woman and that’s my gender, not my specialty. When you have to celebrate women’s hood, establish equality, and celebrate humanity. Don’t ask a man for it, ask yourself when and how you feel as a woman that you should be treated equally by society. Before everything smashed between feminism and pseudo feminism I want to choose today and always humanism proudly.
But above all, if there is a little way to celebrate life and never miss the opportunity. Be happy to say Happy women’s day to the world where women still live with uncertainty.
I love to spread positivity to make life beautiful but on this special day, I didn’t find any option rather than to show a bit of reality. It’s my point of view, but still, I respect each and everyone’s emotions. You may not think like me but you and I always “we”. We…we are women, we are human.
These sleeping babies are the sunshine of my mother’s home. My youngest sister sent me these pics. These three beauties have their standards of living. They always share a good bonding. Looking at these pics, I remember our mother used to tell us that her pets share more love and care than her children😅(at that time we were Lil children and had another cutie)
We are blessed because we can think and rethink. We can think before we act. The way we act thoughtlessly sometimes gives a horrible outcome. And then the rest is painful.
Going through a lot of circumstances, you can easily find that your repeated thinking has made your decisions more efficient. There is no The End of anything until you ask yourself to conclude it. There are certain factors that you need to apply as fully a pause as possible.
Think again about your Expectations
I can not say that you shouldn’t expect anything from anyone. There is nothing bad if you have certain expectations from your near and dear one. But think again about what you are expecting and how much? Are you becoming the selfish one who cares only about self-expectations? Is it good to speak always about your sentiment, attitude, affection, or dreams? Remember, no one is there for you to fill your expectations every time. You must realize the rule of expectation, Give and Take. Think again, are you willing to give that affection to others, are you willing to respect others’ sentiment? How much you care for others, if not, then why these expectations? Doing this, inadvertently you hand over your happiness to others. Because when you see someone not meeting your expectation, you get frustrated. It means that you are being controlled by others. So, come out of the self-centric cave and limit your expectations. Decrease your expectations to gain your happiness.
Think again before explaining.
Do you think people want your explanation? If someone wants to criticize you, he will somehow detect a small point for that. You cannot satisfy everyone. And those who care about you will never ask you for an explanation. Better think again and do what you love to do( but respect the laws and orders and be a sensible one). By explaining to others about yourself means you are not confident enough and you seek Validation from others. You can stop seeking validation by yourself.
How to stop seeking validation from others: Effective ways
Think again before making an excuse.
Excuses never work. You can give any excuse to others for your failure or loss. But what you should say to yourself. Any excuses? Before making an excuse think again, this is a lie you are telling yourself. Although sometimes excuses don’t harm you but take away you from yourself. This is how you deny to accept yourself as you are. The first thing you should avoid making excuses for is to take responsibility for your failure. Do not play the blame game. Because almost all of us have this tendency that, blame others for our mistakes. However, some people never play this game because they take responsibility for their every loss and win.
Focus on your strength to stay away from making excuses. It works as an immune booster. When you focus on your strengths and make them more productive, you build more dignity in yourself. As a result, you gain more confidence to work on your weakness.
Think again about these three E’s,
The way we think the way we live. If you want to live a life more productive and fruitful, think about those for which you are making your life unnecessarily complicated. It depends on you what you want to be, think again.
3 effective ways to enhance your inner beauty
When you say about beauty, it depends on how you define it? Because as per the dictionary, beauty is a combination of various qualities that pleases the aesthetic sense, especially the sight. Anything that looks good always attracts human eyes; a beautiful flower or a beautiful drawing, a beautiful dress or a beautiful smile. But there is something more beyond the sight.
There is no correct statistics to define your beauty. It depends on the way you present yourself and the way you live. More or less the makeup you wear on your face can cover your spots or scars or you can shine but you don’t need to wear anything expensive to reflect your inner beauty. The attire of your intellectual is something different from the so-called designer outfits, which enhances your beauty from inside you. When you feel good from the inside your look good from the outside and when you make your internal beautiful, it echoes your outside.
“True beauty is not really what color your hair is or what color your eyes are. True beauty is about who you are as a human being, your principles, your moral compass.”–Ellen DeGeneres.
I have listed 3 effective steps to enhance your inner beauty to please your soul and to motivate others. I am sure this will work for you.
Find out your unique quality.
We all are created for a good purpose and we all have our unique quality. But you will feel sorry that most of us spend our whole life without knowing that, what is our unique quality?
It is very important to know yourself and to accept yourself as you are. You can nurture your ordinary quality to make it extraordinary. But for that, you need to respect yourself and admire your existence. Unless and until you realize your value you cannot find your hidden qualities. Whatever you accomplish with full of heart, you can see that can grow more inside you.
Let’s simplify it.
1. Respect yourself and believe in yourself.
2.Nurture your ordinary quality and make it extraordinary.
3. Admire every small skill and accomplish it from your heart.
Self-love is the way to become beautiful internally. It doesn’t mean to be selfish or insensitive. You always do many things to satisfy your near and dear ones. As a family person, you have many roles to play. But you ignore the most important one and that’s you. When you do not accompany yourself, at the end of the day you get dishearten and this leads to irritation, stress, and depressions. Remember, an unsatisfied soul can not satisfy others. A heart full of disappointment can not please others. You must have love and care inside you to pour it outside. So, every day you should do something pleasant to pamper yourself. Like, Cook your favorite meal or listen to your favorite music, or do something that you love to do. Don’t underrate your liking. Be cheerful inside to cheer outside. One truth you can’t deny is that you can not please everyone. Some people will scrutinize your every deed to find out a fault. If you are full of enthusiasm and self-confidence, you will be able to ignore those unfavorable quite easily.
Remember, your journey or your story is as valuable as others. You may feel less powerful but ask yourself from where you have started. Acknowledge your efforts. One life, make it..
Enjoy your company and increase your inner stength. There is nothing strange if you think more about yourself. When you care and pamper yourself it keeps you mentally strong. After all mental health matters. This will help you to stay fit and strong physically. And a healthy person can take care of others, not a patient.
Taking off time for yourself, or enjoying your own company can give rise to a smile from your heart. This smile will always enhance your internal grace.
Include your intellectual growth with self-love. Stay updated and keep learning. Be creative and strengthen your social intelligence.
Life has given us lots of good things for which we must be grateful every day. Be thankful for all those factors which make life beautiful. Despite so many negativities, an optimist finds out those precise aspects for which life becomes joyous. Look at your surrounding and realize the value of your relationship with your loved one. Stay connected with nature. Look at those beautiful things around you. Although life is a gift.
When you practice gratitude, you become thoughtful and simple. You will start to be more compassionate and feel more humming. This boosts your positive emotion. But there is not always everything in your favor. You experience many negatives in life. These give you a tough challenge and being grateful teaches you to accept and overcome those challenges or on the other hand, you must be thankful for the challenges that impel you more powerful.
So, start listing all those small things for which you’re grateful. Keeping a gratitude journal is the most useful idea. The saying of Henry Ward Beecher is very much related to the topic and that is, “Gratitude is the fairest blossom which springs from the soul.”
We are not perfect but we have a distinct identity. Our external beauty fades away but the inner beauty which makes us special never evaporates. Good thing is that by enhancing our inner beauty we enjoy life more.
“Beauty is not in the face; beauty is light in the heart.”-Khalil Gibran
What helps you to enhance your inner beauty? Will you love to share with us your opinions?
Love or lie
That dark night
When stars refused to shine
The sparkle of your eyes
Chose to lighten me
There was something
Which I couldn’t find
Oh, a little spark
Are you love or lie?
Life gives us many things. Some are always a mystery. When you find something on your trouble you do not understand them whether those are for you or against you.
What do you think about it? Have you ever thought that sometimes you are unable to find whether it is love or lie?
One life, make it..
Everything in our life happens with an intention. The life cycle of a human being mostly from the stroller to a wheelchair is a unique chapter of the vast subject called life. We all have come to live a life with dignity. No one can steal our birthright. But how many times we realise it? Do we embrace life with pride?
Let’s simplify it. When we realise life as a gift we cherish it. Isn’t it?
Some create history and some fights to create their identity. Barriers are different but exist for all. Some put effort to set boundaries for others and some are struggling to break it.
Life is like a cricket match. Social life or personal life, always has it’s boundaries. You may not hit an over the boundary. But still, you can play the match to the last over with patience and technique or if you cannot stay long, you still have the opportunity to score more. It depends on you. Your practice makes you perfect. And surprisingly life is all about practising some habits.
The religion we practise or the culture we practice is nothing but a habitual life force. We are following something without a change or we are changing something to follow that. But if you understand what makes the difference between an ordinary and extraordinary you will see the life as significant. Every little thought matters in your life. When you have the opportunity to make it delightful and worthy, why not try?
1.You’re not alone. You have faced a lot of obstacles, but remember this always, there are millions of people who have a certain fight. Everyone has a story. The untold story that can teach others so many life lessons. Your story can also be specific and inspiring if you learn how to cope with life’s difficulties.
2.Leave the past and live in present. You cannot change what happened in the past. So, why don’t let it go? This moment is yours. If you live this moment fullest then your tomorrow is going to be delighted.
3. Understand the responsibility. Your life is yours but you have some responsibility towards it. You can choose your comfort zone to hide yourself or you can choose to come out of your comfort zone to be an inspiration. We live only one life and influence so many lives. Isn’t it enough to a responsible one?
4.Be courageous. It doesn’t matter how small or big you are it matters how courageous you are. A tiny ant falls a hundred times when it brings food but still goes on. The little bird doesn’t leave to build it’s a nest for fear for a storm. Step forward if you have a dream. Your one-step can open the door to your destiny.
5.Build your character before you build the empire. As a human being, we always have scopes for self modifications. Look at the area of your struggle, work on it. Be humble, practice kindness, learn leadership, but how? Is it that easy? No. Building character is a life long practice. It requires commitment and practice.
6. Your contribution is invaluable. Whoever you are, you retain some contribution to your community, good or bad, big or small, but it happens. Who does not want to be a good contributor? If you are positively driven then you can make a useful contribution. For that, your small act can make a big difference.
You need to realise how you can make a difference because life is full of opportunity if you learn it.
“You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.” — Mae West.
