Growing up

Long shot

“Advice is like mushrooms. The wrong kind can prove fatal” Charles E McKenzie

Have you noticed anything else apart from the wide tree trunk and thick roots being exposed before they enter the earth below?

I shall tell.

In between the tree roots, you can notice those tiny white mushrooms, some are about to grow and some are already grown.

When you notice growing mushrooms on a tree trunk or root, is it a good sign or a bad sign?

I understand that it’s a bad sign, probably the tree is going to die.

The innocent-looking Mushroom can be lethal to this gigantic tree as time passes.

“Nature for me is raw and dangerous and difficult and beautiful and unnerving” Andy Goldsworthy

The close up view below shows the beautiful design of these mushrooms.

“Nature alone is antique, and the oldest art a mushroom” Thomas Carlyle

Thank you.

Be a Road Scholar!

My friend, are you not sick of Covid, Tv, Social media these days?

Are you interested to improve your moods?

Why don’t you make the best use of this opportunity and start walking daily?

“A walk to a nearby park may give you more energy and inspiration in life than spending two hours in front of a screen.”  Tsang Lindsay

‘Walking the most ancient exercise, and still the best modern exercise” Carrie Latet

Do you walk regularly my friend?

Walking for 30 minutes a day is a great way to maintain your health.

Make walking part of your life.

Are you aware of the number of steps you are supposed to take every day?

You have to have 10,000 steps per day to achieve the health benefits.

My friend, wear a pedometer and at the end of the day you will come to know how many steps you took

You can also add up the intensity by walking up hills or carrying some weight.

Walking with family members or friends is fun always!


☑️Walking helps in digestion by moving bowels regularly and the formation of gas is minimised

☑️Better control of diabetes, heart diseases and arthritis

☑️Opportunity to reduce your weight

☑️You will be subjected to less stress and improves your moods.

☑️Remember to get all the health benefits, you must go for a brisk walk, and not a casual one 

And I read somewhere that all the famous people start their morning walks a bit early.

Simply sitting is said to be equivalent to smoking. Don’t be sedentary

☑️Most importantly, regular walking lowers your blood pressure and improves your sleeping

Take home message

Walking is the best medicine.

“In every walk with Nature, one receives far more than he seeks” John Muir


Thank you.

Do you pile up your thoughts in your brain and make it a junkyard?

And most of you agree that the answer is ‘Yes’.

And this is the problem with you, my friend.

There are hundreds of thoughts in your brain, mostly useless, that you can be easily deleted without delay or hesitation.

You can delete instantly and don’t need to depend on Ctrl+Delete or Ctrl+Backspace

Concentrate on the quote below.

“Lost opportunities, lost possibilities, feelings we can never get back. That is part of what it means to be alive. But inside our heads- at least that is where I imagine it- there is a little room where we store these memories. A room like stacks in the library. And to understand the working of our own heart we have to keep on making new reference cards. We had to dust things off every once in a while, let in the fresh air, change the water in the flower vases. In other words, you’ll live forever in your own  private library”  Haruki Murakami

Good morning my friends.

Have a blessed Monday

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Monday Motivation

‘Motivation’ plays an important role in achieving our goals and dreams.

It’s important to know how to motivate yourself.

Motivation is possible if you incline to achieve your goals by creating a positive mindset that can help you in focusing.

Most importantly you must be surrounded by people who encourage you and even help you.

Is failure opposite of Success?

That is what grammar teaches us.

Read this

“We need to accept that we won’t always make the right decisions, that we’ll screw up royally sometimes – understanding that failure is not the opposite of success, it’s part of success.” Arianna Huffington

Fairy tales

Often, we make fun of fairy tales because that is not how life is, since we know that there is no such thing called …happily ever after.

But my friend, they do give us some messages.

“Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.” Neil Gaiman

Take home message

My dear friend to be successful, first, you must believe in yourself.

“Magic is believing in yourself, if you can make that happen, you can make anything happen” Johann Wolfgang Goethe

Thank you.

“Four-letter words have always offended me. I cringe at hearing them. Can’t, don’t, and won’t are the worst.” Richelle E. Goodrich

How easy is it to tell I can’t’? for that matter any negative expression?

“The power of “Can’t”:

The word “can’t” makes strong people weak

Blinds people who can see

Saddens happy people

Turns brave people into cowards

Robs a genius of their brilliance

Causes rich people to think poorly

And limits the achievements of that great person living inside us all”   Robert T Kiyosaki

Thank you.

“Did you know that using social media can actually help you to increase your level of thinking?” Germany Kent

Do you agree with the above quote?

Does social media help us to think better?

It’s said that people, especially millennials are benefited by regularly using social media and it further enhances bonding and mental wellbeing including happiness.

But the general impression given is that social media has toxic effects on the users and one  loses individuality.

It is also said that social media makes one an addict!

I feel that whether one is addicted to social media or not, better one starts thinking outside the box or else herd mentality rules the world.

“Think outside of the box, create your own path in life. “You laugh at me because I am different; I laugh because you are all the same.”  Daniel Knode

Can we think outside the box?

“Common things are common and Uncommon things are uncommon. Let it be a footprint that you are uncommon to be common in common things.”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

What exactly we do in social media?

My dear friend, you will be surprised if I say, that we may be revealing much more than we realize, with every post, comments, likes, shares and reblogs!

Even if one tries to act smart and be careful, somewhere with time, self-revelation happens. One can’t escape this uncomfortable truth if one wants to be on social media.

Take home message

“Everyone is living for everyone else now. They’re doing stuff so they can tell other people about it. I don’t get all that social media stuff. I’ve always got other things I want to do – odd jobs around the house. No one wants to hear about that.”  Karl Pilkington

Thank you.

Importance of ‘Love’


“When I’m hungry, I eat what I love. When I’m bored, I do something I love. When I’m lonely, I connect with someone I love. When I feel sad, I remember that I am loved.” Michelle May

Good morning my friends.

Let love speak all the time.

Have a blessed Monday

Thank you.

“Don’t try to force anything. Let life be a deep let-go. God opens millions of flowers everyday without forcing their buds” Rajneesh

Read further…

You may be wondering what this flower bud to do with my today’s topic.

Don’t rush to conclusions my friend, that is the exact reason, I am here, talking  to you.

Do you know what is funny about your lifestyle?

You rush through your life!.

You want things to be done at superspeed.

It appears as if you are chasing the time!!

“We’re a species that rushes through everything, then complains that time flies.”
 Steve Maraboli

Let us accept, you  are obsessed with 

S P E E D………⏩⏩⏩⏩⏩

There is no need for me to give any examples.

Though Almighty has given you a generous 86,400 seconds every day, still you complain of lack of time!! 

You become restless if there is some delay.

You are impatient.

You readily curse others for the delay and curse yourself for bad luck.

You don’t hesitate to bring in God and complain to Him as to why He is not listening to you.

How many times do you check the watch if some delay happens and you have some urgent work to be attended to?

Why do you scramble for more time?

What happens if you rush through?

When you rush, you start the process of resistance which results in an anxious state. This triggers your body hormones that are harmful to your health in the long run.

And your focus gets limited to just getting things done and you lose your general sense.

I understand you my friend since you have become a multitasker and you can’t afford to waste a single minute.

Earning more money is important to you.Who doesn’t you may ask me.

You may say I don’t understand you and you have more than 100 ‘to do’ list and you even lecture me that ‘Time is Money’ etcetera.

It’s alright. I don’t mistake your jibe since I am your well wisher.

I am reminding about every aspect and every situation where you have become habituated to rush through your life.

Are you aware of the Rush Sickness?

Also known as Hurry Sickness characterized by continual rushing and anxiousness. Said to be a behavioral pattern since you develop ‘rushing through life’ as a habit over time.

Hurry sickness aggravates your existing stress.

Your brain is in a constant state of ‘Fight or Flight Mode’ and your body starts getting loaded with harmful corticosteroids.

This can lead to heart attacks, weird lifestyles, and irritable bowel syndrome even depression.

And because you are in a hurry, you forget things! (car key etc) and curse yourself and throw the nearby items into the air or at somebody!

I am serious.These things can happen.

Not just that you become highly irritable, sensitive but lose your mental balance and always in a quarreling mood.

And you lose your beautiful smiling face unfortunately replaced by a frown

I concede the majority of us are infected with this disturbing trend.

I remember in many movies army commander shouting at his subordinates..go..go..go. Here I can understand the urgency…but in our real life?

Is life being wasted by hurrying?

Yes my friend.

And your lovely face ages faster than that of your grandparents.

“The more I took note of how my body and brain clicked along through the day, the more I realized that I spent a considerable amount of time banging around with a brain full of chatter; A rush of things to do, bills to pay, telephone calls, text messages, e-mails, worrying about my job or my looks, my boobs or my ass; I rushed from thing to thing, multitasking, triple timing, hoping to cover all the bases, avoiding anything that might disrupt the schedule or routine. At times I was so caught up in the tempo and pattern, the predictable tap, tap tap each day, that there was no time to notice the neighbors had moved out, the wind was sneaking in from the north, the Sun was shifting on its axis, and tonight the Moon would look like milky residue floating inside an enormous cereal bowl. I wondered when I had become a person who noticed so little”  Dee Williams

Any remedial measures?

Yes, there is one.

Stop rushing and…………..    S      L      O      W      down.  🐌🐌🐌🐌🐌

Memorise yourself one thousand times a day that ‘Nothing is in your hand’

What about deadlines?

Hmm…what can I say?

You are never tired of asking questions.

“Are you aware that rushing toward a goal is a sublimated death wish? It’s no coincidence we call them ‘deadlines.”
Tom Robbins

No urgency, no hurry and no rushing of your beloved life……

” It’s more important to go slow and gain the lessons you need along the journey than to rush the process and arrive at your destination empty”    Germany Kent

This life is yours.

To achieve your goals do you go with the flow or swim against tide?

Read this
“Sometimes, no matter how much people care about you, they won’t always understand or support your vision—and that’s perfectly okay. It’s yours for a reason, so dare to swim against the current in pursuit of whatever it is you dream of. In the end, you will find there’s no greater success than achieving what you believe in and make happen on your own.”
Anixia Rodriguez,

Start the day with a smile.See yourself in the mirror
“Smile in the mirror. Do that every morning and you’ll start to see a big difference in your life.” Yoko Ono

Good morning my friends

Have a blessed Monday
