The Unpredictable Me!

In an unpredictable world, there is always a fear and an unanswered question banging in the mind if the decisions I am taking is right for my life? I think lot of people around us fight the same battle everyday thinking if the decision made is right or wrong for their life, what next is written in their destiny good or bad?

For a person like me who tries to find happiness in the smallest of things one day at a time whereas the other one thinks of having the best of life with all the luxuries nothing much but a good job that pays well for leading a descent life. However the other part of me things of falling in love and have my own family. And surprisingly this other part of me just wishes to run away from all the responsibility and be at a place where no one knows me.  It wants to go make some random plans not caring about the tomorrow and the financial crisis that may occur. And the other part just wants to freak out like an immature and party with life as though tomorrow it is the last day of my life.
It’s all about the choices we make and the chances we take and destiny has its own role to play, have your character well played.

Simplicity



Complications seem to be an inevitable by-product of modern living. Simplicity gives birth to inspirations. Keeping my own mind calm and clear is the easiest method to sort out messy situations. Maintaining a balance of living simply yet comfortably, and only using what I really need of the earth's resources, I will always have abundance in my life.

Transform Negativity


Transform Negativity

The energies of life come to meet us at every moment. Most come from other people who, are either in the same room or on the flickering, technicolor screens with which we now share most of our homes. The vast majority of these energies are not positive. So how do we handle the 'the negatives', whether it's someone's attitude, their hurtful gestures or our daily dose of world violence and mayhem. There are three cardinal rules. First, do not absorb it - don't be an emotional sponge. Second do not reflect it back. Otherwise you begin a cycle of emotional exchanges which may last a long time. And third, do the one thing which marks us as intelligent human beings - transform it. Even if the scene is a disaster there is some benefit somewhere in it. Even if you are watching two people's beliefs or opinions slug it out to the edge of violence, don't take sides. Instead offer a solution then stand well back. Even if the person hates you, accept their state of being and return the light of love. In time, with patience, it will illuminate their darkness, and return to you by the bucketful! Just wait.

Remain Cheerful Within

Remain Cheerful Within

When faced with problems it can seem difficult to maintain inner cheer; the mind gets caught up with more and more negativity, fear or worry. Because of this, the problem seems bigger than it  is and we lose the ability to find solutions and work constructively. The first step I need to take when I recognize a problem is to  smile to myself. When I make sure I am happy within, I know that every situation will pass and has something to teach me. Then I will find solutions come more quickly and easily.
