Jab We Met : 7 incredible life lessons

Its been almost 10 years now but memories of that movie is still as fresh as it was yesterday. And as if it was planned, got a chance to watch that movie again, as a part of family movie night. I know, lots of articles have been written about this movie but could not resist the urge to contribute mine :-)….Happy reading…

 

Love does not know right or wrong

Take Risks, play hard, don’t blame others…

Love yourself and everyone else will

Life is all about little moments….Live it

People management is a skill

Burn and flush the past…Start new

Love is an extension of invisible friendship

The Secrets of Life….

You are an atom in the universe. No matter how big your problems look, remember it cannot be bigger than life…

Being human is the luckiest thing happened to you….Let’s celebrate :-).

Parenthood is the life changing and most exciting phase of life.

Life purpose for everyone is different here. Comparing yourself to someone else is like trying to copy an athlete’s speed when you know you are good at fast reading and not fast running.

Success is not how world sees you…its about how satisfied you are :-).

Finding true love is the most fortunate feeling, you can experience as a human.

Tomorrow is an another day…

Just after this dark night

At the end of this never ending tunnel

After the toughest test of patience …

All those tears will disappear

All those setbacks will roll down

All those wounds will heal …

With a new ray of hope

With a new light of joy

With a new way of life …

A smile will spread again

A feeling will replicate again

A love will be lived again 🙂

Just when I think I am Done …

Mind wanders and details are being analyzed

Heart denies and conclusions are being made

Thoughts pop up and hopes are being illuminated

Trust is cracked and arguments are being made

Just when I think I am done, I miss you more than ever

Just when I think I am done, I see new horizons to reach out

Just when I think I am done, someone holds hand to help out

Just when I think I am done, I feel unexampled energy to live

Just when I think I am done, I have just begun…..a new phase of life 🙂

From ME to me (older version to younger version)

Dear me (I really hope I could write this letter to you on time. But sorry, I am almost 15 years late. However I think better late than never),

You will be amazed to learn that life has so much to offer

You will be excited to know that love has different meanings to present

You will be stunned to recognize that cloaking has been the habit of people

You will be astonished to understand that living is about exploring

 

Just leave those worries and tensions

Just chill with friends and family

Just say “love you” to loved ones

Just dance in the rain

 

People will come and go

Games will be lost and won

Mistakes will be made and learnings will be discovered

Time will take care of everything else

 

Leave fears

Look ahead

Love yourself

Live life …..

Why do they change?

One day,

When they saw me working hard for longer hours

They said to not take life seriously

To enjoy life and to smile more

To help more and Be happy

On the other day,

When they saw me jumping high

Happiness flashing on my face

new rhythm played by my feet

twinkles in my eyes

and an undying smile ….

One more piece of advice came over, along with a question

Why are you wasting your time?

Why don’t you understand you have limited time?

Why don’t you make out of it the most?

Why don’t you take it seriously?

With confusion and dilemma

I stood there for longer

Watching the splashing water of ocean

BKY6FR A woman watching ocean waves in a turbulent sea.

BKY6FR A woman watching ocean waves in a turbulent sea.

Asking myself a question –

Why have they changed?

Why their statements have changed?

Why their reactions to my happiness changed?

And the answer from within came typically,

It’s because

Your happiness was unbearable to them

As your sadness

They love you in either way

After all, hate and love both are four lettered words…

And both have power to change the world

Therefore, I need to choose now…..

Which one I want to pick

And forever I will select LOVE over hatred

The love, which will make this world more beautiful

And the lives more liveable.

How about you?

5 mistakes of my life, I will never repeat

5 mistakes of my life, I will never repeat (that’s what I learned from these mistakesJ)

  1. Not listening to call of life and running behind the pessimistic job for money
  2. Always carrying burden of agony, hurts, pains and sufferings from others
  3. Put myself last on priority list
  4. Keeping myself closed to emotional bonding
  5. Restricted laughs and smiles for few people only

After writing this, I am feeling free. Freedom that comes after breaking the rules, after breaking the lines and after seeing yourself in a new and clean mirror. Yes, I am new today.

What about you? Share with me the 5 mistakes your life, you will never like to repeat. All ears to you, dear readers……..

Life and decisions

Read something today : your life is defined by your decisions…..

How true it is. The author has conveyed the wisdom of life in that seven words sentence.

Most of the time, no matter what culture we have grown up, we prefer to blame someone else for our sufferings, our pains, our current life and blah blah blah…..

Is that really so?

Yes, people were always there to suggest something, to advice something, to show something but where were you? Why did you follow others’ decisions, thoughts and suggestions?

Image

Being an adult and after having meaningful education, I think every person on the earth can think of his/her good. Most of the time, we follow people’s decision so that if something goes wrong, we can have chance to blame them. But why do you want to blame someone after wasting a phase of life? No one will get you back that precious time, you lost.

At every point of life, we need some guidance and we should have some resources in life, who can be a constant inspiration or guide. But when it comes to LIFE – that only one chance, always chose to take decision on your own. Also, have guts to accept the failures, you might face with your decisions. Ultimately you will have a satisfaction that you decided and you failed. And believe me, that self decision resulted failure will teach you so many things. If you don’t know something, ask, learn, read, understand and communicate. The world was never so informative the way it is today. Take benefit of it. Take advantage of knowledge available at your finger tips. Decide to move on and move on, no matter what obstacles you find on your way.

I again remind you – we are living that only one time opportunity, LIFE. Live it and shape it with your decisions. Learn from your past mistakes and take decisions. Believe in yourself and trust your decisions. Make your life a dream life and enjoy….

Today is your day and it will never return so live every moment of it.

Be happy, readers.

That unique hidden side and CHARGERS

As we know, we all have the CREATIVE side. We have that hidden art, which is neglected the most in between routine chaos.

Image

As per me, that’s the only fact, that side of every human being, makes him unique. We all live on same earth, live same life and no one of us have control on end of life. So many ways, we share the similarities. Still we all are different. What it would have taken for GOD to make us all different? He must have thought a lot and then must have smiled J. He must knew that we will or most of us will neglect themselves and so he put that secret uniqueness in the heart and covered it with body. We most of the time, search out side to satisfy our creativity, to accomplish something unequaled in life. And sometimes, we spend the whole life to just find it out. Is it so difficult?

Today, I want to ask you readers, what takes you to take out your creative juices?

As per me following simple points in daily life achieves you that treasure, hidden in yourself. I call them CHARGERS. Yes, they charge me up every day to find the new track and to follow my heart.

  1. Let it Go :

 Image

Yes, let go everything (it’s hard, I know. But practice makes man perfect :-)). You are living this human life and it’s the most auspicious blessing. Do you want to spoil your life while fighting for small things or being jealous to someone? If someone is non-adaptive, judgmental, jealous, mediocre….don’t stop to respond them. You are already moving ahead and there is no need to entertain each and every dog on the way.

2.       Love everything and be grateful :

 Image

What if you would have not born as human? You would have never been able to see this beautiful earth and experience others. Be grateful for whatever you have and love yourself. Because if you are able to love yourself, then only you will be able to love others. We are here to spread love and to leave our foot prints named as “will be remembered forever”, right?

3.       Spend time with yourself :         

 Image

The tough one? Why should we do that? We already live ourselves, why should we spend time alone? As per me, this is the best charging point. When you spend time alone, you are able to understand yourself, your dreams, your expectations from life, your plans, and your loved ones. Try to spend at least 10 minutes with yourself on daily basis. It will create wonders, for sure.

4.       Don’t neglect those secret wishes :

 Image

Yes, most of us want to do something extra ordinary. We carry that secret wish in our heart, everyday. But thanks to that hectic routine that most of the time we avoid to think about our secret wishes or we delay them for implementation. Don’t do that mistake. Those secret wishes are your way to life, which will lead you to successful, satisfactory and victory. Try to fulfill your wishes because you are here for yourself and then for others. Tomorrow, if you will not be there, no one is going to miss you for more than 5 days. Life is so fast, everyone has to move. So, don’t allow others wishes to overwhelm you. You are you and your wishes are your life. Follow them.

Live BIG and dream bigger.

That’s it for today. 

Please revert back with your CHARGERS. I would always like to hear from you.

Keep smiling :-).

 

 

Daily Prompt : Take Care

Daily Prompt: Take Care

When you’re unwell, do you allow others to take care of you, or do you prefer to soldier on alone? What does it take for you to ask for help?

Taken care by loved ones, especially while not feeling well, is the most desired way to cop-up, I think. Caring and helping are totally different. Anyone can help you but everyone cannot take care of you. So if feeling unwell, go to the first circle of relation, which includes the most important persons of your life or may be the people you love the most. I am fortunate to have that first circle full and I like to go to them and ask them to take care of me when I am unwell.

This was not myself before two years. I hated to ask for help. It was the most challengeable task for me, if I had to ask someone for help. Being a Virgo, I have been very shy, reserved but determined. Also, my growth never taught me to take help from anyone, even if I am not feeling well.  I used to get mad while doing everything on my own. I used to stress up myself.

But everything changed.

Yes, you have to change and so did I.

While being pregnant with my son and working for full time and taking care of house and socializing, I found myself exhausted. I was shouting, crying and awoke for most of the time.  This was not right, I thought many times. But again I did not want any help because I thought I am able to take care of everything.  I was converting dream phase (of course, pregnancy is the dream phase of every woman on this earth) of my life to worst phase of my life. And one day, I was reading some tips for pregnancy and it said something wonderful –

“Don’t think twice before asking help. Its ok to ask and take help. You can always return back the help in future. But right now, you need it so take it, whenever its offered”.

I was moved. Yes, that was correct. Why couldn’t I understood that simple things for so many years of my life? And I took it up. I opened up myself and asked for help whenever I needed it. I asked neighbors to buy grocery for me while their visit to shot. I asked my parents to accompany me for sometime as I was feeling lonely. I asked hubby to look after some of the household chores so that I could have some rest. I asked colleagues to drop me at home as I was not allowed to drive. Every time, I felt like I need help I raised that board “Help Wanted”.

Image

And believe me, it created wonders. It helped me a lot in enjoying my dream phase. But rather than that, I started understanding the need of people when they asked for help. I could understood that taking help is perfectly fine because that’s the way you can connect with people. And most of the time, you can return back that help in one or the other way. Also, asking for help gave me an opportunity to take an initiative while talking with strangers and it helped me a lot while growing professionally and personally.

And so… now a days, it does not take me anything while asking for help. I just look around and can ask anyone to help by briefing them with the situation. And yes, I have never been denied.

After all, we live on this earth, the only planet where human beings exist. How one can deny the other to help? It just takes a moment to ask and you are connected. So surely ask for help, when you feel unwell because its an indirect medication ( a mental medication) to recover fast.

But with that, I would like to convey that being helped should teach you something most important. Yes, you too need to help others. Do not neglect people in need. Try to help them and try to show right direction.

I am thinking of the world, where everyone will raise his hand to help the other. We all will be connected and how wonderful it will be :-).
