Life isn’t perfect,but it has perfect moments

Life is n't perfect,but it has perfect moments

It is not the years in your life but the life in your years that counts  Adlai stevensony 

We all know that Life can never be ‘Instagram Perfect’.

But still,why we all make our life miserable ?

1.Because we worry about future which is unknown.

2..We quarrel among ourselves for what happened yesterday,who is responsible etc and trying to blame others or ourselves in the process.Yesterday is past….and nothing can be done,but still we worry for the things that happened.

3. We forget to be happy  today conveniently because we have something or other priorities to attend.

Things don’t happen as per our wish,not readily waiting for us on the silver platter.

Do you remember the quote”Good things come to those who wait” It is nothing but rubbish.Life is never kind and it owes us nothing.There is no such thing called ‘Happy Life’ and my point is that you have to ‘live’  in the moment and make your life ‘Happy’

“It’s not a case of finding the meaning of the moments,but giving the moments meaning”. Steven Redhe

This life is our own and it resonates how you want it to live.If you want it to be miserable ..it’s the way it’s going to be for you.

“you can frame a moment,But you can’t frame life”    Armin Houman

‘Hope’ is good,no doubt it sustains us but then we should make attempts to make that hope a reality by living in the ‘moment’

Then how not to feel miserable in life ? My thoughts are simple.

1.Stop over thinking.

2.Stop judging others.

3.Remember,nothing under your control.Just move along the flow

4.Avoid the mentality of perfectionist.

5.Stop criticizing.You know only part of the story.

6.Avoid negative thoughts .

7.Most importantly stop comparing yourself.

Thank you

Do you want to know me ?

Do you want to know me ?

I am unique. I am special. I am me.If you think I am funny,that’s your problem.

“I am Me. In all the world, there is no one else exactly like me. Everything that comes out of me is authentically mine, because I alone chose it — I own everything about me: my body, my feelings, my mouth, my voice, all my actions, whether they be to others or myself.

I own my fantasies, my dreams, my hopes, my fears. I own my triumphs and successes, all my failures and mistakes.

Because I own all of me, I can become intimately acquainted with me. By so doing, I can love me and be friendly with all my parts. I know there are aspects about myself that puzzle me, and other aspects that I do not know — but as long as I am friendly and loving to myself, I can courageously and hopefully look for solutions to the puzzles and ways to find out more about me.

However I look and sound, whatever I say and do, and whatever I think and feel at a given moment in time is authentically me. If later some parts of how I looked, sounded, thought, and felt turn out to be unfitting, I can discard that which is unfitting, keep the rest, and invent something new for that which I discarded. I can see, hear, feel, think, say, and do. I have the tools to survive, to be close to others, to be productive, and to make sense and order out of the world of people and things outside of me.

I own me, and therefore, I can engineer me.

I am me, and I am Okay.”

Varginia Satir

Kindness: The Graceful Virtue

Success Inspirers' World

Kindness and graceNumber five in a seven-part series on virtue

The virtue of kindness can be a confusing concept to understand because it can be defined in many ways. Perhaps the best way to understand kindness is to examine other words associated with kindness.

The Merriam-Webster online dictionary uses two important words in defining kindness. Those words are affection and favor.

Kindness Is an Expression of Affection

If one demonstrates kindness to another, it expresses a level of affection toward that person. A fine example of how this is manifested in life is found toward the end of the book of Acts in the New Testament.

Kindness and grace

Paul and his companions had just survived a shipwreck and found themselves stranded on the island of Malta. Luke, Paul’s companion and chronicler, records the kind actions of the natives to their group in chapter 28.

After we were brought safely through, we then learned…

Hardest thing in this world is……

Hardest thing in the world is ...

I know you are tempted to say ‘Diamond’ !

True to some extent.Diamonds symbolize Status,Love,strength( hardness), beauty and Prosperity.

It’s also interesting to know why  60 th wedding anniversary is called ‘Diamond Anniversary’ ?.It’s because of longevity of the couple’s relationship both in times of happiness and difficulties and the marriage surviving this long of 60 yrs without break up in relationship, a toughest job indeed in the modern day philosophy of ‘divorce’ at the drop of a hat.

Do you want to know which is tougher than Diamond ?

“True Love and Loyal Friends are two of the toughest things to find.”   Unknown

Whichever part of the world you are in ,remember,never underestimate the power of true love and loyal friends.

Be a true lover & don’t lose loyal friends.

To all my WP friends…

Happy Valentine’s Day

Why do we Judge others ? Do we have the right ?

“Judge not, that ye be not judged”  Matthew 7:1

It’s 2.5 minute read,GO ahead if you have time & inclination.Thank you.

I am not talking about friends & relatives judging us or vice versa.

I am talking about people we come across in our day-to-day life,whom we know nothing about ( unknown to us ).

It is but natural for all of us to judge the other person with an electrifying speed !

How do we judge a person ?

By appearance= Facial-ugly or beautiful ..Body build -fat or thin ?

Body Language ?

By color ? Whether smiled or not ? By hairstyle ?

By Behavior ?   By  person’s dress ? By seeing the tattoos and piercings ?

Is it true that ‘ First impression is the best impression’ ?

And  later on many times we felt sorry that our first impression went horribly wrong!

Then why we jump to judge people ? Do we have any right ?

Probable reasons for rushing to Judgment …..

Is it because of fear of the unknown?

Is it because…I can never go wrong, (mind-set)

Is it because we think we are superior and at the top of pyramid and rest are lesser mortals ?

Is it because ,we are insecure about ourselves?

Are we not lying to ourselves by judging others ?  The answer is ……

“Judge me if you want, but at the end of my life, I choose to have memories not regrets.”  Steve Maraboli

Read this story

A 24-year-old boy seeing out from the train window, shouted…

“Dad look the trees are going behind!”,dad smiled and a young couple sitting nearby,looked at the 24 year old’s childish behavior with pity,suddenly he again exclaimed…”dad,look..the clouds are running with us!”

The couple couldn’t resist and said to the old man…”why don’t you take your son to a good doctor ?”.The old man smiled and said….I did and we are just coming from the hospital,my son was blind from the birth,he just got his eyes today…”

Every single person on the planet has a story.

Don’t judge people before you truly know them.The truth might surprise you.

“Judge tenderly, if you must. There is usually a side you have not heard, a story you know nothing about, and a battle waged that you are not having to fight.” Traci Lea LaRussa11

Judging the other in a flash of second…….I call it blind Judgement.

“Judging others make us blind.where as love is illuminating.By judging others we blind ourselves to our own ( short comings ) and to the grace which others are just as entitled to as we are.” Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Any thoughts you have ? Would you like to share ?

Hope is the physician of each misery-Irish proverb

According to Wikipedia/Wikiquote

Hope leads to patience, courage, and joy. It makes us stable, and we are saved by hope. It is one of the three things which last: Faith. Hope, and Love

Hope is an optimistic state of mind that is based on an expectation of positive outcomes with respect to events and circumstances in one’s life or the world at large.As a verb,its definition include;”expect with confidence” and to ‘cherish a desire with anticipation.”

H hold
O on.
P pain
E ends.

“Ever since Happiness heard your name,it has been running through the streets trying to find you” Hafiz of Persia

“Never stop believing in miracles,because miracles happen every day”. Unknown

“While there is life.there is hope” Marcus Tullius Cicero

“There is a saying in Tibetan,’Tragedy should be utilized as a source of strength’ No matter,what sort of difficulties,how painful experience is,if we lose our hope,that’s our real disaster” Dalai Lama

Many examples can be given,where hope alone made all the difference in one’s life.

One particular example of HOPE,in modern-day is the famous Scientist Stephen Hawking.

Ten facts about Stephen Hawking

Another example I can give is Thailand cave rescue.Where prayers & Hope played a major role

How are you celebrating the Valentine’s day,this time ?

Valentines day

Valentine’s day is the day,when all over the world,LOVE is celebrated.

It’s celebrated on 14 th February of every year.

Just think for a second.Are we true to the spirit of Valentine’s day ?

Is it necessary to wait for this day to express love ?

Instead we can  show this love in every day of our life.

Don’t you think true love is the one,which is beyond conditions ?

True love should be forever supportive.

Love should be constant both in times of happiness and sorrow.

Of late, we have become busy in  showing off love ,instead of taking solemn pledge of Love !

And on the Valentine’s day,funnily we exaggerate our Love !

To show love you must buy something and this is  where industries are making a kill on this day,defeating the very purpose of Valentina day.

I guess we are over rating the day !

Money, money,money,it’s so funny !

My take, Love never fails,instead people fail on love.

“Love never dies a natural death.It dies because we don’t know how to replenish its source.It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals.It dies if illness and wounds,It dies of weariness,of witherings,or tarnishings.” Anais Nin

Global warming of different kind

Global warming of different kind

Don’t hesitate to spread the warmth whatever may be your situation ! 

“Warm weather fosters growth.Cold weather destroys it.Thus a man with an unsympathetic temperament has scanty joy:But a man with a warm and friendly heart is overflowing with blessings,and his beneficence will extend to posterity.” Hung Tzu-Ch’Eng

 

“Even more important than the warmth and affection we receive,is the warmth and affection we give,It is by giving warmth and affection,by having a genuine sense of concern for others,in other words through compassion,that we gain the conditions for genuine happiness.More important than being loved,therefore is to love.” Dalai Lama

 

“Each of us is responsible for creating an environment of warmth and consideration for those we love.I have always tried to define a good day not in terms of one in which all things were made right and comfortable for me but rather,as a day in which I have been able to make another’s day more loving,and special for them.We must treat each other  with dignity.Not because we merit it,but because we grow best in thoughtfulness.” Leo Buscaglia

 

Finally

“A woman at 20 is like ice, at 30 she is warm and at 40 she is hot.” Gina Lollobrigida
