Make yourself happy!

Everyday lets try and do something….

To bring a smile on someone’s face, 

Give a hug to comfort someone in pain, 

Be the helping hand to someone in need, 

Lend an ear to someone who wants to be heard,

Give a shoulder for someone to release their  grief 

Laugh at someone’s stupid joke 

Dance with someone for the joy it brings them. 

And is all this for the others? 

Not really! 

Because at the end of the day it is what brings you joy and peace. 

Simple truth. Think about it.

Carry your shield

When is it that one fails or what is it that renders someone a failure?

There are so many paths/phases in life that we cross. Along most if not all of these phases, there comes a time when you start doubting yourself and your capabilities so much so that you regret the decision of taking up something that only proves you to be a loser. This is a time when one needs to reflect upon themselves not to question their own abilities but to understand the reason for not having faith in your ownself. As such times, don’t we start comparing ourselves with all the possible people we know and it is we, our very ownselves who start depreciating our own value. So afterall, it isn’t others who look down on us. Rather it is us, who stops believing in themselves. 

And this is a time when one achieves the title of a failure. A failure, not because we couldn’t achieve what we had set out to achieve but because giving up was an easier option rather than fighting through and proving it to none other than yourself that nothing is impossible. 

The thought of giving up on something that we are meant to or chose to pursue brings in us a feeling of low self esteem, low confidence and worst of all   doubting yourself. Once we plant the seed of doubt in our mind, it only keeps growing worsening the our ability to think beyond. It is like a germ that spreads easily and later becomes difficult to get rid of. 

It is always a fight, whether with someone, with the world or if no one, yourself. The survival of the fittest instinct is what should drive us for everything in life never forgetting to carry with ourselves our shield of self belief, faith  and trust. 

Also I agree there are things in life that one may not be able to achieve and sometimes giving up in the only option we are left with. And at such times, giving up is the most difficult thing that one has to do. Such times are not when one is considered a failure, it is simply fate. 

In the end, we are what we believe we are and how we see ourselves! 

 

 

 

 

 

Keeping the spirit alive

Its been a while since I last blogged. The reason I haven’t posted anything is because I just moved to another city. 

In the last 3 months, first I moved countries and second I moved cities. I am now in Toronto for good (hopefully).

Well, moving from one place to another can take quite a toll on one. Atleast for me it does. And I don’t mean just physically but mentally as well. 

Its works quite strangely with me. When I am to move to another place, I get excited days and months before I am supposed to leave. But as soon as it is almost time to to say goodbye, I just get really upset as much as if given an option, I would not leave at all.

And then when I have landed here in Canada for which I have been waiting for so long, to start a new life, I just cant seem to cope with the fact that I have left behind everything and here I am, all alone – no family, no friends, no acquaintances. The only solace for me right now is the technology that lets me connect so easily to my friends and family back  at home. 

All this while I have been pretty busy settling down, setting up the house which is good for me because I really haven’t had the time to feel lonely. And I am dreading that time when I will have all the free time with nobody around.

I am wondering whether this is atypical of me or do you or have you gone through the same emotions.

However, moving countries has helped me think of what I can do with all the free time and blogging was one of them. I have also joined hands with my best friend and started a facebook page that we have been discussing about for long. It has also given me the time for self realization and to understand what I really want to do going ahead. I just hope to get work some where, where I feel like I belong. Its just not easy to get a job here as well which dampens my spirit a little every day. 

Over and above all of this, I still will not stop thinking positively and I do believe whatever happens from here onwards, will be good. I will have to keep the faith and expect good things because that is the only way!
