THE GREATEST INSPIRATIONS II:FATHER

Quiet,untold,sometimes merely unexpressed and sometimes hard to define in words-such is the relationship between a father and his child.

The glory of this relationship may not be as much written about,as much sung upon or as much discussed about as a mother-child relationship,but both the parents bestow the best of their love upon their off springs.A father’s role is as equally contributing and important on shaping the future of his child as a mother’s.

A father works hard to secure his child’s future,He returns home tired yet takes out his children to dinners with a smile on his face,He wants his children to have all their whims and wishes fulfilled at their first demand,He spoils his children rotten but still manages to set an example of discipline in the house.

A father’s love may not come with the fancy packaging of flowers,beautified words,out-of-the-world showering of love and affection but it is nonetheless a raw love that is as ready to give any sacrifices for the sake of creating a heaven for his children to live in.

Dad-The best Three letter word ever!!(Photo credit: Wikipedia)

So here is an standing ovation,a dedication and a nod-

“To fathers who cried with joy when they first held their child;

To fathers who teach their children what is right and what is not;

To fathers who encourage their children to rise again after each fall;

To fathers who are role-models for their children;

To fathers who teach their children never to give up;

To fathers who inspire their children to be just like them;

To fathers who believe in their children above all odds;

To fathers who love and never tell;

To fathers who get tired but never frown;

To fathers who work the hardest and never complain;

To fathers whose hopes and determination never grow old;

To fathers ,The best ones in the world.”

I Love You Dad

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.

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.

“What goes around comes around,you give joy and it will be your own.

What doesn’t kill you gives you a better will to survive ,with each passing day rise and shine.

What you don’t learn in books you learn in life,Even the bad experiences teach you to keep on your stride.

What your eyes cannot see maybe felt by your heart,Keep up the good spirits and move forward.”

 

All we need is a little love,a little care,a little reason to smile,a little compassion,a little kindness and a little encouragement.Take life as it comes and make ways for a better tomorrow.Live in each moment.Live on the reality and make reality beautiful.Life isn’t always easy but accept the hardships too.There maybe some rainy days but the clouds will clear out.

life is beautiful....

Smile and make people smile,

Love and let people love,

Be positive and spread the warmth,

Live and let live.

Life’s too short to hate,too precious to waste and to important to neglect.

 

 

 

 

Happy Living!!!!!!

EMBRACE AND ACCEPT WHAT YOU ARE

Don’t repent the mistakes you’ve made.For how would we have been able to learn and be a better person today?

The mistakes we have done,

The heights we have fallen from,

These are what have made us what we are-and what we will be.

How would we have known the importance of happiness had we not known what sadness is?

How would we have celebrated every little success had we not known what failure is?

How would we have loved life so dearly had we not known that death is sure?

Don’t regret whatever you have done,if nothing there will be at least a lesson you will learn from it.Don’t look back to a bad past and let it affect your today,instead pave way for a better tomorrow.

YOU ARE WHAT YOU ARE with all your imperfections,your mistakes,your choices,your thoughts,your flaws and your inner self.

What would have been the YOU without the choices you have made-be it good or bad?

How would you have been without the feeling of cherishing  every little achievement of yours?

Life’s all about you and the people and things that surround you.Accept them,Keep living a imperfectly content life that’s solely YOURS.

Happy Living.
