TIME IS THE BEST GIFT YOU CAN EVER GIVE

The most prized possessions we own are our memories-the bittersweet moments we fondly treasure to look back into and smile whenever we need one.Those cute childhood memories,the times we spent being our parents’ spoiled kids,the memories of school and college,the precious little moments of sharing talks about anything and everything with our friends, the moments of laughter,pain,achievements and a million other things.

Memories are precious..

Memories mean treasured moments;

Memories mean time-that was,that will never come back yet stay in our heart and mind forever.

As we move on with our life, we often remember people by the memories we hold of them. We laugh and cry and become all nostalgic reliving all those old memories when we meet our friends who we haven’t seen since ages.We realize that it wasn’t really what we gave our friends or our family or our loved ones that mattered more,it was how much we spent time with them to create such treasured memories and that, made the real difference.

The best gift there can ever be is the gift of TIME.

Sure we all love getting gifts.Besides the happiness of having shiny new things; it is also about that special feeling of knowing that people genuinely care.But besides all the momentary happiness we gain from having things we always wanted,in the end,it is the thought, the love, the care and the feeling that matters the most to us.

Every relationship needs time. We grew up happily because our parents gave us their time no matter how hectic their own schedules were. We have a few friends who are dearer to us than life itself because we gave them our time and they gave us theirs.We fall in love because we give it time to flourish.Those memories, those beautiful moments-everything resulted from time we spent on creating them.

Everything is only a matter of time.After a while, It won’t matter how much you spent on that lavish gift you gave your loved one. What will matter is the amount of time you spent on making people feel special, on showing that for you-your people come first.

Sometimes in life,we get so busy putting everything  together that we forget there are people who expect us to spend time with them but are too considerate about our busy lives that they don’t even say it.We tend to be so caught up in our own lives that we don’t realize how long it has been since we last spoke to our loved ones or spent quality time with them.We don’t give them our time,and life passes by in wasted moments which could have been magical otherwise.

As humans,we are emotional beings-we crave love,we crave care,we crave moments of pure joy,we crave happiness. Occasionally we get tired of all the chaos and want to spend some time away and alone but most of the times,we want to be surrounded by people who love us-we crave importance!

For instance,one would rather choose their family and friends come over to see them on their birthday than getting a stack of presents delivered at their homes and not having a single person to share the joy of the occasion with.

The thing is-time,is the greatest gift of all!

 

I hope all of us realize this and spend more time with people we love.I hope we make fond memories everyday,I hope at times we go out of our way to make someone happy,I hope we share laughter and good times everyday,I hope we share moments everyday and I hope that we live everyday.

Happy Living!

FIRST IMPRESSIONS? THINK TWICE!!!

As humans,we have a natural tendency and almost a habit of sub-consciously judging people based on their physical appearance, demeanor, way of talking,choice of music,etc.The judgement being based on one or maybe everything that is visible to the eyes and reaches the brain.

But the truth is-There is more than that meets the eye.It takes more than just a mere first impression to know about somebody and form a just opinion thereon about their nature.

Many times,we come forward situations that make us realize that first impressions often get us mistaken.We may now be best friends with someone who seemed too unfriendly,grumpy or cold in the first instance.We may have found ourselves falling in love with somebody whom we found utterly arrogant,self-obsessed,”too loud” or “too plain” for our liking in the beginning.

We tend to make our own assumptions and conclusions about the nature,lifestyle and even the background of a person at the first instance based on material things like the kind and brand of clothes they have worn,the accent in which they speak,the pitch and tone of their voices,their physical features and a million other things .And this phenomena, as we all know is  called”STEREOTYPING

However,we can’t ignore the fact that one cannot look into a person’s soul and feel the purity of their hearts the moment they see someone.It is indeed true that,it is the first impression that makes an impact,it is the first impression that makes us realize whether we want to know somebody more or not.

But the point is,WHY SHOULD WE JUDGE ANYBODY,ANYWAY?

Why can’t we simply have a mere opinion and not a decision?

Stereotyping or making a fixed opinion about someone based on one thing or the other,is consciously or unconsciously done by almost everyone.It’s in our nature,It is a part of our life,It is something we just can’t seem to take out of our systems.We just can’t seem to help it.

In my opinion,first impression is ADEQUATE,but not enough.For making a judgement about somebody,if you have to,at least take a second impression,or maybe  a third!!There is no need to close the doors of your heart to someone just because theirs was not a good first impression-who knows you might have just missed one more person who could have been a beautiful addition to the list of people who you love.So next time you have a lingering first impression about somebody-Good or Bad-THINK TWICE.

Happy Living.

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.
