I am the person I want to be

Let’s not look at the grass on the other side and think of it as greener than our grass. Stop staring. Stop comparing. Stop complaining. Let’s start watering our own grass and make it as green as we want it to be. Let’s create our own beautiful garden and grow flowers and fruits that will reap us joy and pleasure upon harvest and even enrich lives of others. Continue gardening always!

Life is what we make of it! Let’s not leave it up to chance, but pursue and strive to live every moment and make it a memorable one and worth cherishing. Life is a wonderful gift – appreciate it!

I write better everyday 

I’ve been procrastinating my writing for quite sometime with the thought that I don’t write or speak well enough. I read blogs and books by seasoned writers and admire how language can be used is such a beautiful manner to communicate thoughts and imagination. The mere use of simple words placed well grammatically can make such a difference and also create such a huge impact. I too wish to write like a pro but the negativity within refrains me from pursuing my goal. However, today I’ve decided that I’ll just write – come what may. I’ll write a little daily and improve myself. After all whoever reads all this is just another amateur writer who must have been in my shoes at some point in their lives and hopefully understands what I’m trying to convey. Please help me write better by suggesting some wonderful ideas. 

Lucky or unlucky? Don’t know!

Prompt: Luck

I wonder if luck is a real “thing” or it’s just the presence of an opportunity at a time when you are prepared for it. Maybe luck is the opportunity itself, or the opportunities arise as per the thoughts you create in your mind. I always practice and recommend to be optimistic and send out positive vibes into the universe. Rather than thinking of what you don’t want or can’t do, change your thought pattern to what can be done or what you want to happen. Accordingly, “luck” will be in your favour and you’ll begin to believe that life is good. There isn’t anything as lucky or unlucky – you’re in-charge of your own life! There maybe good and bad circumstances, but it all depends on your point of view. A blessing to you can be a curse for another. It’s not for you to decide what’s good and bad – they are sides to the same coin. Keep looking for good in all situations and be happy or neutral, but don’t sulk and be sad. Don’t curse fate for bringing bad-luck at your doorstep cause the concept of luck itself is a figment of your imagination. All you need to do is act towards what you wish for and it will definitely be yours, maybe not the first instance, probably not the second time either, but if you keep trying different approaches to get what you desire, you will succeed! I can guarantee you that!!

So go out there and get what you want! It’s all possible! All you need to do is – try! 🙂

Lost and found 

Driving down the road, I heard a thud sound like as if I dropped something. I checked everything possible but there wasn’t anything missing. I thought I lost something but thankfully I hadn’t…

Sometime later I found everything around me so alive. I could see more than what appeared to be as people walking around, cars passing by, trees standing tall (and short) etc. I could actually sense the beauty in life around me. I could feel the love and emotions generated from each living being. I found something that I didn’t even know was lost. 

Looks like I did drop something earlier – not a physical package, but some mental baggage. I’ve found a better outlook to life, like some kind of mystical intervention. I feel like I’ve found a key to a magical land. I can’t resist experiencing how wonderful life is. How amazing to see everything so intertwined yet separated. Life based on plain simple emotions yet built on complex imaginary materialistic objects that define our daily doings and thoughts. 

I want to take a moment and thank the universe for my existence – I appreciate my life and feel blessed! I’m grateful for all of me today.

My top ten inspirational quotes by Michelle Obama

Let’s shine together…

Shine

Very often we look for recognition and validation from others for what we’ve done and said or for how we look and dress, etc etc.

Why don’t we avoid searching for the love and attention outside of ourselves and rather look within to love ourselves for who we are and what we do without any external source to approve and be a measure of the love we desire. If I want to feel loved then let me love myself first and appreciate all of myself before expecting others to do it for me. Make myself my priority and improve myself to match my own standards of excellence. Make an effort everyday to become the person I admire and aspire to become. Make myself the role model that I lookup to and set an example for others to follow and probably become a role-model to others.

My new year resolution: Self-Improvement. To reiterate myself – I am happy to be me the way I am! I accept my flaws and appreciate my blessings! My goal is only to compete with myself – to be a better me than I was yesterday! May I shine bright and illuminate my own life and find the happiness and positivity lying in abundance within myself. Be optimistic and confident and focus only on the good. Appreciate myself for the little steps taken towards achieving goals. Ideate my thoughts toward growth and development and a better tomorrow.

Happy soul searching to me!!
