“I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see. “-John Burroughs

LIFE-So many of us live just for the sake of  it without realizing how precious each moment is.So many of us just wait for occasions to be happy and celebrate.So many of us often treat life as if it’s some cumbersome job that is just to be done with.

But do we really realize each day we live in that it is such a divine blessing to have this life?Do we understand that the time we have today,will be gone tomorrow never to come back again?Do we realize that the memories we hold on to so dearly are those parts of life we spent beautifully and that it was us who helped make it so dear?Do we realize that we live,but don’t live enough?

So many of us go about with our lives and do not appreciate it enough,

Be the one who appreciates life!

So many of us take life as it comes and do not make efforts to make it our own,

Be the one who makes life his own!

So many of us get so caught up in our life that we no more have time for the people in our lives,

Be the one who always makes time for people!

So many of us just dream of a perfect life,and waste it whining and waiting,

Be the one who never waits and make his own dreams come true!

Life is like an empty canvas to be painted on with all the beautiful colors and the palette is in our hands.Life is not what makes us,We are what make life.

So,Live like there’s no pain in the world,Live like there’s no tomorrow and Live like today is the best occasion to celebrate.Because TODAY,the life that is happening to you right now is the right time to live,laugh and enjoy in the best way you can.

Don’t just breathe,Don’t just sit there and watch life pass by-LIVE and LIVE LARGE-IN YOUR OWN TERMS!!

DON”T JUST BREATHE,LIVE INSTEAD!

Like William Wallace said-‘Every man dies. Not every man really lives.’
Be the one who lives!

Life isn’t perfect,but it’s beautiful.

Happy Living!

ACCEPT

Accept the fact that Love is not always easy.

Relationships won’t be in the same flow and rhythm all the time-it won’t be all glitters and gold everyday.Your partner is not always going to be good to you,just like you cannot be sweet and calm when your world is going upside down.

The state of mind of people will reflect upon their actions-and it is anything but natural.After all we are just humans-We have our own imperfections,personality traits,complaints,insecurities,bad habits,mood swings and all that comes with being a normal  human being .

 REMEMBER:UNDERSTAND AND ACCEPT THAT LOVE IS NOT MEANT TO BE PERFECT,IT IS MEANT TO BE BEAUTIFUL IN IT’S OWN IMPERFECTION.

FOCUS ON THE GOOD PART 

Instead of finding fault in people,realize the best qualities in them and admire them,accept them as they are.Be grateful that you met people to whom you MEAN something,that you found,experienced and felt LOVE.Think what was it that brought you together in the first place,Think of the things you love doing together,Think of the common interests you share,Think of that wonderful feeling you get in just being with the one you love.

REMEMBER: IF THE GOOD PART OF YOUR RELATIONSHIP EXCEEDS THE BAD PART,IT IS INDEED WORTH KEEPING.

WORK ON IT

Just like everything else,if you want a good relationship,you have to work on it.

In every relationship there will be disagreements,discussions,difference in opinions and sometimes even fights.But don’t make the mistake of taking impulsive decisions at the heat of the moment.That is not where it should all end.

LOVE-You have been there,You have felt it.You know the feeling,You know what having “butterflies in your stomach” mean.You have been through the chase,the blushes,the “very much in love” state,the excitement and every beautiful feeling that love has to offer.You know what a wonderful feeling it is.So,why let it go just because you have differences?Instead,work on it.Make it the best part of your world.You have to think and analyze where you went wrong,you have to give your relationship time,of all the things.Just like an old bottle of wine,Love blossoms and gets better with time.

REMEMBER:LOVE IS SOMETHING THAT NEEDS THE NURTURING OF YOUR HEART AND SOUL. IF YOU SUCCEED TO WORK ON IT AND KEEP IT SAFE,YOUR WORLD WILL BE COMPLETE.

LISTEN

In disagreements,we often tend to take out all of our anger,dissatisfaction and frustrations while not letting the other person to even speak.But,you have to listen to the other person too,you CANNOT make your point and then turn a deaf ear to what s/he has to say.It is completely unfair.YOU HAVE TO LISTEN.

Listen, Understand, Act

REMEMBER:YOU HAVE THE IMPLIED RIGHT TO SPEAK YOUR HEART OUT,BUT YOU HAVE THE RESPONSIBILITY TO LISTEN AS WELL.

EXPECT,BUT BE REAL

What are your expectations from your relationship and your partner?

One of the most common factors that hinder a relationship is not being able to meet/live up to the expectations of each-other.It is but natural to have expectations from a relationship but their base needs to be realistic.The world we live in is real and our life is not a fairy tale.Expecting somebody to do things that are out of the world are what may kill a otherwise-beautiful relationship.No suppressed feelings of dissatisfaction would arise if you understand that though life doesn’t turn out the way you would want it to, it still is the best gift you have.

 

REMEMBER:JUST BECAUSE SOMEBODY DOESN’T LOVE YOU LIKE YOU WANT THEM TO,DOESN’T MEAN THAT THEY DON’T LOVE YOU WITH ALL THEY HAVE.

Happy Living.

Disappear Always
Searching for my destination that seemed far far away,With time and tide,i was driven away.(Image by Jack Batchelor via Flickr) 

It is a competitive world we live in,Everyone of us trying to outdo,outperform and outlive other people all the time.It’s a constant race we are into,sometimes for the same things and sometimes not.

What is the purpose behind it all?Maybe it’s because-We all want a better life ,a better lifestyle and a better state of mind that comes with it.

And to fulfill our ambitions,to “win” the race and to “outlive” others,We take up the jobs that pay the best,We study those subjects which have the highest “market value,We do what we are “expected” and “supposed” to do,We work hard for a “secure future”,We do what we “need” to do for living a “life of our dreams”.We thrive for”success”.

Success
Success-one thing  that we all seek (Photo credit: kevinthoule)

However,We must not forget that we live only once,WE HAVE ONLY “ONE” LIFE TO DO ALL THAT WE DESIRE AND GET ALL THAT WE SEEK.

So many people spend their lives bringing together the means to lead a better life,to have a better “future’ ,only to realize too late that they gave up so many of their TODAYs and NOWs for a future that nobody can foresee.So many people regret not having enough faith on their own capabilities and having lived a life incomplete and inadequate.

Why give up what you love just because it is not “marketable”?If you are good at something,that thing is good enough to be pursued,That thing is good enough to make you happy or even pay you back.Doing what you love gives you that additional emotional satisfaction that no best-paying job can give if it’s not what you are passionate about.

If  you do what you love,you do it with your heart and soul,you give it the key to success,that fire which fuels your performance-PASSION.If you are passionate about your work,you excel at it,YOU GIVE IT YOUR BEST-ALL BECAUSE YOU LOVE DOING IT AND THE BEST KIND OF SUCCESS COMES WITH DOING WHAT YOU LOVE.

There is scope,opportunity,chance AND  a promising success in each and everything-You just need to have that courage to listen to that inner voice,to follow the path led by your heart even if it is a road less traveled.You need to believe in yourself because if you are not 100% sure about your own potential,don’t expect the world to recognize your worth.

The road to success may be a difficult one,but once you let go of your own inhibitions,the war is half won.

As the old wise saying goes-“Where there is will,there is a way” 

Do what you love,Follow your Heart.You live only once-make it worth living for!!!

HAPPY LIVING.

It would be stupid and downright false to say that life is simple,happy,rosy and uncomplicated all the time.We all have our”low” moments and our” bad days”.

There are times when i am down in the doldrums,feeling like life has been playing its’ bad tricks on me again,when everything feels like a twisted tale where you don’t know what is going to happen next,when every single thing feels like a conspiracy to bring me down,those times when everything surrounding me is just sad and colorless!

                                                                                 Picture credit:Google Images

But one thing that i have always learnt is that  these “bad times” never last forever.Going by the same philosophy,we could say  that good times don’t last forever too but hey! that’s life,right? Sometimes full of happiness and sometimes painful and hurting.

In those moments of unexplainable emotions,with the sole presence or a mixture of anger,sorrow,frustation,sadness and confusion,when i can’t find any reason to convince myself that it’s nothing but a bad time and try to search some thread to hold on to and get out of my misery,The only thing that somehow consoles me is believing that it will get over,that when i wake up the next morning,there will be a new hope,new promise and new oppurtunities to look forward to with a brand new day.

All that i am trying to say is The bad will get over,and this is such a simple but strong truth we live with.

And anyway,we will always be cautious the next time if we have fallen,we will work harder if we have failed,we will run faster if we have been left behind in the race.Life brings with it so many reasons to  learn,even from the worst of times we may have.

Here are some inspiring lines –

“Makes me that much stronger

Makes me work a little bit harder

It makes me that much wiser

So thanks for making me a fighter

Made me learn a little bit faster

Made my skin a little bit thicker

Makes me that much smarter

So thanks for making me a fighter”

-From the song “Fighter” by Christina Augeliria.

I hope this day lasts forever,

With you by my side,i shall fall oh never.  

I could live in this moment for eternity,

I have found myself happy like i never could be.

Walking with you ,sharing the same roads and the sky,

I don’t want this time to ever pass me by.

I hope this day lasts forever,

With every moment spent,i want us to be more together.

All this  happiness feels more than i can hold,

All that i feel for you,by words they can never be told.

With you I know no pain,all the worries in life have disappeared,

All those dark  and gray clouds  have now been cleared.

Life was good,you came and made it better,

I hope this day lasts forever….

My little piece dedicated to all those in love and beyond!!!!

Love completes the world…

Happy Loving.Happy Living.

xoxo.

Life is like a plain paper-You have the palette in your hand to color it in any hue,any shade and any shape you wish.

LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL….

It’s not just a vain philosophy aided by some unrealistic ideas and false hopes.It’s not just a phrase told by somebody extremely happy or content.It’s not just a word of somebody who lives in a different world or time.It is not just an idea or a myth,but it is that beautiful truth we have not yet fully acknowledged and realized.

The beauty of life is that you get to decide which way it goes,what path it chooses and what horizons it reaches.Even in moments where you cannot decide or control,you can understand and have the clarity of things you want and things you don’t-in your life.

We cannot be happy all the time,We cannot be right all the time.Even the most beautiful flowers fade and wither after their bloom.But we can learn from our mistakes,we can cry in our sorrows and then,we can move on.We can make our life better,it’s a constant process.

So many times,we make mistakes in choosing the right kind of people in our lives.We fall in bad company,get affected by de motivational people,become a victim of politics,get our hearts broken.But with time,we grow,we realise,we make amends,we grow conscious and we become more capable of making better choices and less mistakes.And it’s all us and the decisions we make,We have the capability of shaping the directions of our lives.

You have one life,make it better.You have the memories and the lessons from your past,you have the beauty and wellness of your present and you have the hopes and the promises of tommorow.Keep up that undying spirit of living in each moment of your life and you will have your own heaven in front of you.

Life’s precious.You get it once,make it Worth-while.

Happy Living.

A wandering mind,a nomad soul,

I kept chasing things that i realised i didnt know.

I started with a fire and ended up in ashes,

At the end of my destination,i found i had somewhere else to go.

We-the human beings are a treasure of innumerable feelings,thoughts,opinions,perspectives,emotions and outlooks.We all have stories of our own.But so many of us are less content,less happy,less satisfied than others.Why?What is it that differentiates us?What are the mistakes that we make?Why have we not chosen happiness?The answers are all within us-all we need is to  look into our own souls and work towards changing what we can-for a better life.for a happier life.

These are 5 mistakes we usually make in making ourselves unhappy:

1. GIVING UP BEFORE THE START

We have limited our own capabilities.Sometimes,we give up even before we start just because it is hard and we”think” that we cannot do it.But how can you just decide when you haven’t even started?Somebody else will seize the oppurtunities from you and all that you will do is lament at how the other person succeeded right in front of you and be bitter about it.It could have been yours-had you not given it up.

You will meet people who will tell you that you are too ambitious and your dreams are unachievable.But the people who invented the greatest things were probably told the same.The difference is that-they believed in themselves more than anyone else,they did not give up just because somebody told them so.Don’t give up-it’s such a negative thing.At least trying will make you happier than living with the inadequacy of having not done what you could.

Don't Give Up

2.THINKING IT’S TOO LATE

People think about the oppurtunities they have missed,things they always wanted to do but never had a chance and get unhappy that it’s too late for those things now.But the fact is that It’s never-ever too late,at any point of your life,for anything.

3.TRYING TO PLEASE EVERYBODY

It’s the ultimate truth and irony of the world-You cannot please everybody.You cannot make everybody happy.Everyone has a different opinion,attitude and outlook towards things.You don’t have to change the way you look,the way you think,the way you talk,the way you conduct yourself,the way you live just for the sake of satisfying somebody else.It will do nothing but make you unhappy-and how can you make others happy when you yourself are not?We can never find happiness unless we are ourselves.

4.BOTTLED UP EMOTIONS

Untold emotions,unexpressed feelings are often the reason of unhappiness.Keeping things to oneself not only creates a maze of dissatisfaction and mental stress but also makes one’s attitude sour and unfriendly.Expressing what you feel,sharing your thoughts and opinions,making things clear to people,talking out problems instead of bottling them all up inside you ready to explode some day is the key towards a happier you.If you are dissatisfied with something,say it.If you think something is not right,say it.Don’t keep things  hidden inside you which need to be clearly expressed.

5.THE COMPANY WE KEEP

People are the company they keep.Unhappy are those people who are surronded by people with a negative outlook towards life,those people who see the bad in every thing.Letting such people influnce you will indeed make your own life worse,they do nothing to contribute towards your happiness.It’s better to walk alone than walk with a bunch of worthless people.You may think other people have nothing to do with how your life goes,but the truth is that they do-to great extents.Leave out the bad and take in the good-including the company you keep.

Live life to the fullest.It’s a gift to be alive.

Happy Living.

In every walk,every situation,every phase,every step,every moment of your life-you will have only two choices in the world.But you do have a CHOICE and it all depends on you.

Photo credit:google images

You can either let the situations in your life decide how happy or sad you feel or you can create situations in your life to feel great all the time.

You can either let people decide things for you or you can be the one whose goals are set and decisions are clear.

You can either choose to walk on the roads built by other people or you can choose to pave your own ways.

You can either choose to run behind what “is” or you can choose to create what “can be”.

You can either wait for someone/somebody to make you happy or you can choose to create reasons to be happy.

You can either choose to be ruled by what “happens” or you can choose to rule all that ever matters to you..

                                                                                 THE CHOICE IS YOURS!!!!!

The only difference between winners and losers is the choices they make.CHOOSE TO BE A WINNER.

Don’t be afraid of the consequences,if you know it’s right it is right.Go for the leap ,NOW.Don’t wait for things to happen to you when you have the power and capability to make them happen.

TAKE THAT STEP,WALK THAT DISTANCE,BE WHAT YOU WANT TO BE.LIFE’S ALL ABOUT THE CHOICES YOU MAKE.

As it is said-  “Everything comes too late for those who wait”

English: Emphasising choice in decision making...

MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICES.

Happy Living.

TIME HEALS ALL SORROWS

In everybody’s life,we have faced times of extreme sorrow and sadness.We all have been there.We all know how it feels.

The difference,however,is getting over it.There are some things in life that we seem to hold on to forever.Some things that have been a part of us by now.So,what really is the way to get over things that make us sad for a very long time?or get past the memories of a sad past?or forget the sorrows that have drowned us?

The answer is-TIME.

It is true that some sorrows in life can never be forgotten,but with time ,the depth with which we have been bruised starts to heal.The hollowness slowly starts to fill.The emptiness slowly starts to fade.You just have to let your heart and mind open to new ways that will make your life better in  every way.Don’t let the sorrows be the only identity of your life,don’t grasp on to it and turn blind to all the good things.

Time heals all the sorrows,it takes away the pain and brings out new beginnings.A bad experience is like a bad nightmare,when you go to sleep again the next night,there are promises of beautiful dreams again.Don’t think you will never be happy again because you will.Just live..Just breathe…Time will do the rest.Keep believing,keep loving,keep smiling and keep living,everything will be alright though it may take a little time.Don’t ever give up your hopes,your hopes are one of the purest and most powerful feelings you possess.

Time will pass by,the good times will leave you beautiful memories and the bad times will leave you life lessons.With it,TIME will heal the bad and give you the good.

Happy living.xoxo.
