Silence


Your stillness is a burden
That lays heavy on my heart

It feels like we’re done
Though we didn’t even start

Every night I’d hold you
And thank the Gods above

For the chance we got to become us
And the feeling of your touch

It just keeps getting harder For you to hide from the truth

That each day that passes us by
Is just time that we both lose

Tell me that you love me
And that you run to hide the truth

You do it cause you have to
There’s no point you’re trying to prove

So Please lift the burden
Of our not knowing us

Let’s contemplate our mistake
Let’s break this silence or rather break up…

A Guide to Happiness

Hey all! Welcome to my blog. Today I’m going to discuss “happiness” and my personal guide to achieving it.

For a person like me, the ultimate goal in life is happiness. Be it in studies, blogging, relationships, hobbies …I strive to find happiness. It all started a long way back when I wondered what does real happiness really means? Was it something good that will happen to me in the future, or all the good things that have happened to me in the past? Then I said, no! Happiness ain’t about the past or future events. Happiness should be here and now, who I am now, with the people I’m with now, doing the things I’m doing now.

So here’s the real trick. Take action to do the things that make you happy, with the people who make you happy, and to be happy with the person you are now.

Let’s dig deeper and explore the branches of the tree.

Pick one or two and start today.

  1. Make your mental health a priority.
  2. Your inner peace a priority.
  3. Your self-care a priority.
  4.  Your happiness a priority.

Don’t take yourself for granted. Nourish and reflect on all parts of yourself that needs healing and self-love. Be patient and kind during the process.

Remember It’s easy to:

Complain
Blame
Lie
Cheat
Pretend

It’s hard to:

Inspire
Mentor
Help
Learn
Give

Do the hard work. Shine.

Are you an overthinker?

Overthinking is the biggest cause of our unhappiness. Keep yourself occupied. Keep your mind off things that don’t help you. Think positive.

Are you a dreamer?

That’s good! Life stops when you stop dreaming. Hope ends when you stop believing. Love ends when you stop caring. Friendship ends when you stop sharing.

Do you believe?

Good things come to those who believe, better things come to those who are patient, and the best things come to those who don’t give up.

Money?

Ah, money, right! Let me tell you my views on this.

Yeah, money is important. Go work for it. I’m going to deny the fact that money can’t buy you happiness. Yes, it can! You should always have a financial freedom to buy things that you wish, the materialistic things that you’re crazy about, things that give you happiness. But still,

Buying the most expensive snacks from a shop, coming home, eating it will surely be nice…
But it can never replace,
Coming home after a tiring day at work/school and getting hot Samosas(Indian snack) made by your mom served with lots of love just for you kind of feeling.

Or

Buying the most expensive mobile available in the market is of no point if you don’t have someone special to ask you how are you doing…

But but… There’s always a but, I suppose

The other day I met an old lady while traveling through the train during my internship last semester. I was sitting on the station bench and using some high-speed wi-fi when she came and patted on my shoulder.

Baba I’m hungry please give me some food” I raised my head and realized what my friend who travels daily by train said to me “Dude don’t give money to beggars on railway station or train. Begging is a profession with a career just like any other. So beware of them” But then something happened. The inner me was not accepting the fact that the old lady is a professional beggar or she had a career in it. The look on her pale face made me so sad that I stood and said to her ” Amma wait here. I’ll be back in a minute ” I went to a nearby food shop and bought a fully packed meal for her and a bottle of water. All this took less than 100 rupees.
You can imagine the happiness on her face. I’m sure you can!
The point is, if I didn’t have money, in the first place, I wouldn’t have been able to buy the old lady some food, which would, in turn, have made me miss the experience of “Happiness”, that I did experience on that day.

Later that day, I discussed the whole thing with my family at dinner. Mom and dad were so proud and happy of course. They said “Shabash, Beta! You did well”.

So you see a small event or act of kindness created a series of happiness in many lives. Money too played a crucial part there.

Everyday Commitments?

Yes! It’s a wonderful idea according to me. Plan your short-term as well as long-term goals.

Every single day you should wake up and commit yourself to become a better person. A kind one. A gentleman.

Last but not least :

Never stop learning.
Keep a good friend circle. Beware of the fake ones.
Spend quality time with your family. This matters the most.
On weekends try your best to socialize and explore the outdoors.
Read quality books(biographies/fictions/comics whatever makes you happy).
Watch good movies.
Eat healthy food.
A light workout every day.
Stay away from strong emotions like anger.
Maintain a journal.
Pray. Don’t be an atheist!

Thanks for reading! I hope if you try some of these tips you’ll definitely start enjoying the life more beautifully. Trust me I’ve tried this and have seen myself grow my senses and mind aesthetically. I can happily say that I’m alive. I’m happy!

It’s all about you

I know what I can do so it doesn’t bother me what other people think or their opinion on the situation.

-Usain Bolt

In the late spring of 2016, the Rio Olympics men’s 100m athletic last gave us a standout amongst the most distinctive cases of doing “you” and run your own race. One of the best men’s sprinters to ever live was going for another gold medal, and this time he’d be tried like never before by one of his main opponents, Justin Gatlin. Bolt knew whether he ran his own race that he’d win. Be that as it may, nothing was ensured.

As it’s been said, a photo is worth 1,000 words.

(L-R) USA's Mike Rodgers, Jamaica's Usai

On the last seconds, bolt turned it on and passed Justin Gatlin. The greater part of this was caught for time everlasting with a one millisecond look that said everything. Justin Gatlin was occupied with the prospect of losing to his boss rival. Maybe, he began agonizing over his opponent.

He completed second with 9.89 seconds with bolt taking endlessly the gold with 9.81 seconds as they finished their race.

Bolt continued going ahead and concentrating on the true objective. He won another gold and the minute ended up scratched in time with a focal, clear message: Run your own race. Try not to stress over what others are doing — particularly on the off chance that you discover it transforming into envy or disappointment. You’re without anyone else way which is as it should be. Know your motivation, clear up your objectives and continue driving forward with certainty and conviction.

You won’t need to peek over your shoulder at anybody to know you’re moving the correct way. You’ll have all the learning you require that fashioning your way is the correct approach. This is genuine whether you’ve been preparing a few hours for every day for a long time, or whether you’ve quite recently pushed far from the shore on your first trip toward carrying on with the life you had always wanted.

Contend, win and spotlight on you

Consider it like this — even in the wearing scene, in particular, an Olympic occasion like sprinting where it shows up it is set up that it’s “You v.s. Them,” there’s as yet the need to center around running your own particular race. The rivalry is an extremely one of a kind and at last advanced theme to process.

Yet, it’s similarly as vital to utilize that aggressive vitality on bettering yourself and concentrating on doing the most perfectly awesome you can for yourself. The minute you begin stressing or looking once again your shoulder at what other individuals are doing, you lose center. You lose time. What appears like an unimportant second or two can totally move the worldview for how we see ourselves and what makes a difference most.

It’s really about drenching yourself in whatever you’re doing and getting “in the zone” with an end goal to be your best. As you manufacture an application or software, does it truly make a difference where you know or don’t know whether another person is endeavoring to infiltrate a similar market you’re after? I trust that answer is a resonating, No. Timing may matter in a few cases, however, the best item dependably wins.

The best exertion joined with your normal gifts, abilities, objectives, reason, and mission is indestructible and all-intense…

Set objectives. Set the bar high. Yet, don’t move these things around for what you see others do. This breeds envy and begrudges changes over itself into disappointment, outrage, desirously, disdain and even lethargy. Envy appears as though it’s a convertible vitality for good at first ridden. Be that as it may, it generally closes severely.

I backpedal to where I began — concentrating on two of the world’s most noteworthy sprinters and the scarcely discernible difference amongst winning and losing. Winner center around their race. Looser center around the race that the winner is running, and when they do it’s as a rule with a negative spirit. In this way, don’t stress over looking over your shoulder. The race is specifically before you.

Thanks for reading!

Have a positive Tuesday ahead…

An attitude of fortitude


When this old acrid world starts  getting me down,

and people are just too much for me to face.

I’ll climb way up to the top of the stairs and all my cares just drift right into space.

On the roof, it’s peaceful as can be and there the world below don’t bother me, no, no.


 

“One cannot undo what has happened. But the inexorable march of time offers wise opportunities for redemption. Do not escape. Stay in this world and do your karma”

“Pessimism leads to weakness, optimism to power”

“Never let your head hang down. Never give up and sit down and grieve. Find another way”

 

Thank you for visiting this blog! Have a great life.

Fact of life


People come and go, but life is simply about seeing who cares enough to stay. Letting go means to come to the realization that some people are a part of your history, but not a part of your destiny. Some people come into your life just to teach you how to let go.

One day when I woke up at night!


One cold, sunny day
When it was raining outside
the glorious dark brightness
was perky and sublime.

The midnight that evening-
the morning at noon –
was late in October
One May in June.

I sat where I stood
as I ran, lying still
Deep down in the abyss
Over the hill.

The fish in the tree
Were sleeping in their nests
Birds were swimming
As the sun rose from the west.

Raccoons playing trumpet
Ducks hunting crows
The people beside me
were swaying to and fro.

Yes, that’s what I saw
when my eyes were closed tight,
one cold, sunny day
on a rainy, snowy night.
