Don’t regret even a single minute of your life !

Life is a thing of many stages and moving parts,

What we do with ease at one time of life we can hardly manage at another.

What we could not fathom doing when we were young,we find great joy in when we are old.

Like the season through which we move,life itself is a never-ending series of harvests,a different fruit for every time.

Joan D Chittister

So thankful

Be thankful,

For if we did not learn a lot to-day,

At least we learned a little,

And if we did not learn a little,

At least we did not get sick,

And if we got sick,

At least we didn’t die,

So be thankful.

Gautama Buddha

Thank you

As I was watching this lamp glowing in one corner of the room,I realised that
there is some attraction in the lights and shadows generated by the Lamp.
Hour Glass appearance

Love is like an hourglass, with the heart filling up as the brain empties.   Jules Renard

The shadow from the lamp was such that it was resembling an Hour-glass, and
interestingly ,the appearance of the Hour-glass can be appreciated both horizontally
& vertically with one difference , one being white shaded and the other dark shaded.

Have you experienced any such thing before?

International Day of Happiness March 20 th

International Day of Happiness

What is International Day of Happiness ?

It’s a day to be happy, of course!

Of course ,as humans we try our level best to be happy through out our lives.

But have we at any time remember somebody,who keep us happy most of the times?

Do we even make an attempt to recognize such people ? The moment your happiness is over…you tend to forget those responsible for your happiness !

I am fortunate that there is somebody who makes me happy,smile & laugh and I recognize this fact and I am thankful to this person .Of course these things can’t happen without Almighty’s blessings.

Since 2013, the United Nations has celebrated the International Day of Happiness as a way to recognize the importance of happiness in the lives of people around the world.

The United Nations invites each person of any age,plus every classroom,business and government to join in celebration of the International Day of Happiness

Suppose no body is there for you to achieve happiness…what would you do ?

The formula is  simple !!

If you are eager to know , just answer the following question.

How to tell some one that their breath stinks without hurting their feelings ?

1. When. 2. Where and 3. how to say nice words at the same time stressing the point.

Many times we have seen relationship getting worse when somebody is frank.

Sadly we even avoid the person while in conversation.

And even dread meeting the person.

Or you think it is rude even to give hints etc.

Or just forget everything and continue conversation with the person and just move on….

And quite a few with bad breath go into depression and tend to avoid people or remain in isolation.

Any members ,aware of any Etiquette…if at all it is there ??

Is the ‘Mint’ only solution to overcome this problem ?

That is the reason the World celebrates ‘World Oral Health day’ March 20 and to-day is that day !

Who doesn’t love sparkling smile with lovely set of teeth ?

Why not each and every one of us see the Dentist regularly (once in 6 months) as required.

World Oral Health Day

What are the minimum things we are supposed to do regularly ?

1.Start the dental care for the kids as soon as teeth start forming.2.Brush twice a day,by using proper technique and never forget flossing daily.If you are not aware of flossing take help of you tube or yourDentist.3.Change the tooth-brush once in 3 or 4 months.4.Before going to bed rinse the mouth with anti bacterial solution.5.Forget smoking,tobacco and all other related stuff.6.Eat healthy diet and I need not stress how important this is.7.Consult Dentist once in 6 months.

Are you sad ?

Are yu sad ?

Some days are just bad days,that’s all.You have to experience sadness to know happiness,and I remind myself that not every day is going to be a good day,that’s just the way it is !  Dita Von Teese     

“It is popularly believed that sadness is due to certain things that happens to us. The cause of sadness is often traced to misfortune,hardship or humiliation

In truth all sadness is from within.

Sadness is the result of our inner attitude towards outer happenings”.

Dada J P Vaswani

The reasons for sadness are many. And all of you know.

Reaction to sadness varies from person to person and depends on how sensitive the person is.

Sadness can break the person completely and even push into suicidal tendencies.

Some cry to get relief,some indulge in self harming,some manage the show by fake smile,but still many are unable to come out of the feelings.

We all should realise that nothing is permanent in this life. Change is the way of life.

Whether it is sadness or happiness it won’t last forever and comes alternatively and this is nature’s law. Every thing changes over the time and time is the greatest healer!

Whatever may be the reason for sadness…never keep the emotions inside. Remember it’s like a time bomb.

What is the solution ?

Yes solution available.

A sad person needs another person who understands him/her 100%

The sad person just needs this person on whom he/she can lean on and cry their hearts out. Believe me the relief is instant !

In pursuit of money

In persuit of money

“Money often costs too much “                                                                                                   Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Man sacrifices his health in order to make Money.

Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health.

And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present,

The result being that he does not live in the present,or the future.

He lives as if he is never going to die,

And then dies having never really lived!.

The Dalai Lama.

 

” It’s good to have and the things that money can buy,but it’s good too,to check up once

in a while and make sure that you haven’t lost the things that money can’t buy”

George Lorimer .

As the saying goes …..” Best things in Life are free ”

But we never care to have a look at these  things ….. and go on carving for more and more money,losing the true happiness ( True happiness can not be explained or described,can only be felt )

Then the question comes ….what are the things that money can’t buy ?

There are many things,but I can tell some  important ones,what I could think.

Love,truth,time,peace of mind,talent,health,manners,true friends,knowledge,family unity,personal contentment,happiness,integrity,respect,ethics and lastly spiritual enlightenment, nature’s beauty……

Friends would you like to add some more ?

Stressed? Think of Romantic Friendship !

Romantic Friendship

There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement and acceptance.” John Lennon

This is a 2.7 minute read.Please proceed if you can spare this much time.

Before I start the discussion,it’s better we know the definition of ‘Romantic Friendship’.

According to ‘Wikipedia’

“A romantic friendship, passionate friendship, or affectionate friendship is a very close but typically non-sexual relationship between friends,often involving a degree of physical closeness beyond that which is common in the contemporary Western Societies. It may include for example holding hands,cuddling,hugging,kissing,giving massages,  and sharing a bed, or  co-sleeping, without sexual intercourse or other physical sexual expression”

Yourdictionary.com says

“An intensely emotional love relationship between two unrelated people, in which sexuality  is unimportant and typically absent, but there is greater physical affection or poetic communication than is typical for friendship”

Can we include online Friendship ( since we are into the digital revolution with social media,online-video/chat,making new online friends etc ) into the above definitions ? I am not sure.

How nice it’s when the truly understanding relationship takes a vow, as said below !

“The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach more,that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds.And that’s what you’ve given me.That’s what I’d hoped to give you forever”  Nicholas Sparks

But then….all are not fortunate and there has to be a kind of ‘vibe’ or as some one brilliantly  coined the term ‘ Familiar vibe’,  or  Mutual ‘resonance’ between the partners or friends or relationships.Plato’s quote is apt.

“Every heart sings a song, incomplete, until another heart whispers back. Those who wish to sing always find a song. At the touch of a lover, everyone becomes a poet.” Plato.

True friends really make a big influence on their individual lives in times of stress.

And What did John Lennon Say about friendship and its impact on Life and how this true friendship keeps you smiling ?

“Count your age by friends, not years. Count your life by smiles, not tears”.

A recent study published in the journal Psychophysiology suggests that simply imagining love & support from your significant other can boost your stress management skills.Check this link.

“It is Impossible ” said PRIDE

“It is Risky ” said EXPERIENCE

“It is Pointless ” said REASON

“Give it a try ” whispered the HEART

Moral of the Story – Heart always triumphs ‘unknown’

May be that is the reason they say ‘Love is Blind’ and we all tend to associate ‘Heart’ with Love, instead of ‘Mind’

Zero Discrimination Day 1 March 2019

Zero Discimination day

The butterfly is the symbol of Zero Discrimination Day

1 st March 2019

On 1 st March,people around the world join together to celebrate Zero Discrimination Day.

The UN celebrated Zero Discrimination Day on March 1 st 2014,after UNAIDS,a UN programme on human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and acquired immune deficiency syndrome ( AIDS ) launched its Zero Discrimination Campaign on World Aids Day in December 2013.

Discrimination continues to undermine the efforts to achieve a more just and equitable world and causes pain and suffering for many. discrimination has many forms,from racial or religious discrimination to discrimination based on gender,sexual orientation or age ,and bullying at school or work.

Source  WHO

“Only people who have been discriminated against can really know how much it hurts. Each person feels the pain in his own way, each has his own scars. So I think I’m as concerned about fairness and justice as anybody. But what disgusts me even more are people who have no imagination. The kind T. S. Elliot calls ‘hollow men’. People who fill up that lack of imagination with heartless bits of straw, not even aware of what they’re doing. Callous people who throw a lot of empty words at you, trying to force you to do what you don’t want to”.       Haruki Murakami

The symbol for Zero Discrimation Day is the butterfly.widely used by people to share their stories and photos as a way to end discrimination and work towards positive transformation.

‘wishing a Happy Zero Discrimination Day’ to all my WP friends.

Thank you
