I am an unrealistic Optimist….??!!….Yes I am and I am proud of it. I get ridiculed often times (actually all the time) and my dear ones try to protect me in any way possible from going overboard in my thoughts and actions. So, from the normal reality of my present life to what one should do to live in this society, such realities are pushed into my brain in a hope that sense would prevail and I would (like everyone else) get into the mode of living a “normal sane life”and tread the path that many before me have followed. But then that little voice inside me, that spark of creativity playfully like a child smiles and tells me “We will make it one day,Girl!! Hold on!!.

I know you must be thinking, “Yea, we got the voice too but we got to go to work tomorrow & everyday for the good part of our lives, work hard, earn money, pay off loans, and dream of a brighter future for our kids”. Well, I say I am no different, I will go to work too, juggle with people, spring in a new idea to my boss and try to get a raise. But hey, how long can you really keep up with that?! Be honest to yourself if not to anyone else.

We all have an alter reality, a creativity which keeps on reminding us of “what ifs?”. No, they aren’t distractions, they are who we really are!!

Now, I am not saying give up your jobs and pursue your passions. We are all scared of doing something different, of…failing..but we are missing out on the experiences our creativity has to offer. Don’t give up on it! Pursue it everyday in any tiny way possible. Nothing is impossible until we give up on it. Make SMART goals for your passions too. Who knows where they will lead us. Have courage, have patience, have faith.

What do we really want in life..??

FeaturedWhat do we really want in life..??

What do we really want in life. Well, in India, most of the time (till today) our parents answer this question for us. They chose the school we should (well yea..coz at that time we were too busy eating the orange and cola coloured toffees aka “Candies”), they chose the stream we should pursue to make a good career (not trying to sound old, but some of us didn’t have a choice here), graduate and get a great job (after all we don’t want us to be criticised by our parents in front of Uncles and Aunties for not being able to do well in life), get married to a “WELL-SETTLED” person and then do the same things to our kids and the vicious cycle continues.

But, what do we really want.

Don’t think you’re on the right road just because it’s a well-beaten path.” – Author Unknown

Life speaks to us in many ways, and trust me I am not trying to be philosophical here. I can prove it. Well, think about those times when we are getting “Bhand” (pardon my language, but it makes it real) with our friends and we are in that feeling of “I don’t give a *beep* what the world wants me to do”. We talk about stuff which we are passionate about, thing that we want to do in life. We could be an engineer, MBA in profession, or a doctor, but maybe what we really wanted to do in life was “Play Tennis” or “Become a writer” or “Run a business” or “Just get married and raise kids (I have all respect for he mothers in the world, its a tough job to raise kids like us:P). And trust me “Being Bhand” with friends is just one of the many occasions when life really speaks from within you.

Now, either you will ask me “Then, why don’t we do what we really want?” or if you are idealistic aka practical, you will say “Life is not easy ok, you have to earn money”. Well, first things first, I am not trying to say I am a specialist in life, coz if I would have been, I would have been a billionaire already and spending my life on my yacht, traveling to some exotic country, not sitting 12 hours in front of my computer and still earning thousands by the minute. Well, I am not here to give you “Gyan” about why we don’t do what we are so passionate about doing. We all have our reasons starting from “Laziness – Procrastination – Lack of time – Lack of money, Honey!”.

But, a few tips to “Stay happy, even if your life is not perfect” with a disclaimer that these are my views (and I am a little crazy, like really), so you may or may not like or follow them, no hard feelings and also since I have started a blog, well I got to write something.

1. Stop Cribbing – Look, I agree cribbing or venting out your troubles to someone takes the load off your chest and makes your feel lighter. Agreed. But it depends to a large extent on the person who is listening to you. Let things go yaar, life is too short, apologise if you do wrong, say thank you more often, smile or shut up even when the lava is about to burst out from your head.

2. Always believe that something wonderful is going to happen – Very cliche, I know, but what’s wrong in thinking something that gives us a high for a few moments in a day. How about thinking about good moments which bring a smile to your face and looking into the future in a positive way. Negative soch ke bhi kya kar ledge, so atleast be positive about it.

3. If you can’t do anything positive about it, give it time rather than taking hasty decisions and ruining it.

4. Take out time for your passion – I know, no one has time. But hey, we all take out time to have dinner with someone special, or watch some american sitcom season episode back-to-back coz its easier. Take out some time for yourself even if it means earning a little less money.

5. Look back at the greatest accomplishments in your life and remind yourself about them again and again. Its feels good. I don’t have many accomplishment, infact none, but I am glad how far I have come in life (even if its just age wise :P, people die everyday, atleast I am alive :P)that is something to be grateful about.

So why am I writing about all these above things and making it a long boring read?? WHAT’S MY POINT?

The point is simple. Just be happy in life, no matter what the situation, less money, thankless job, too much work load, sleepless nights, Pain in the ass boss, politics, relationships or whatever, just be happy like a mad person (don’t stress too much on mad, we all are anyways our own special brand of crazy). You have a lot of things to be thankful about in life. Be thankful about them. Smile, laugh, be special, be unique. Hell, this is your life, and you can’t spoil it by being negative or too serious.

As I mentioned earlier, these are my opinions only, you can do whatever you want. But if you have read the entire thing and are reading this line, think about what I have written atleast once.

Daily Dose of Inspiration – I Don’t Care

Be Inspired..!!

Why have we allowed this to happen? How have we gotten sucked into the vortex of living a false life — a life that we never defined for ourselves?

It takes courage to say, “I’m mad as hell, and I’m not going to take it anymore!”

It takes courage to say, “This is my life, and I’m making the rules here.”

It takes courage to say, “I don’t give a damn what ‘they’ are doing or saying or admonishing or threatening.”

I just don’t give a damn about political correctness. Human decency, basic manners, and my personal values serve as my guide not some bound up ideas about avoiding offense at the cost of common sense and reality. Sometimes we must have the courage, the guts, sometimes even the anger, to not care about the possible consequences so that we have the freedom to live life on our own terms.

But there is a…

“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.” Maria Robinson

I regret nothing in my life. Even if my past was full of hurts, I still look back and smile because what I am today is because of my past. It made me stronger and stronger.

The nature of our thoughts determines the quality of our life-whether it is sad, happy and contented. Happy, optimistic, positive thoughts, emotions and feelings generate a zing in our system which makes the blood flow freely and heart beat joyously. They create a spring in our feet and spur us to action.

We keep mulling over our misfortunes, the perceived wrongs committed to us by those who we have loved and stood by so sincerely. We never stop cursing ourselves for the mistakes that we think we have committed. What would have happened…

Daily Dose of Inspiration – Consistency Is Key

Be Inspired..!!

Maintaining a desirable vibration will consistently create desirable experiences. An inconsistent vibration will create inconsistent results. This information is very important and very valuable, because it can help you obtain more attractive results when applying the law of attraction to your life.

If you were to only think about what you want a few times each day as if it is in your current reality, you would only be feeling the feelings of living your dreams for a small portion of each day and due to the law of attraction, you would only attract a few experiences that match the vibration you have maintained for short periods of time.

In order to truly generate the type of results most people would like to generate when utilizing the law of attraction, you must focus on what you want for the majority of each day. As a result of this focus, you…

Daily Dose of Inspiration – Listen to your Soul

Daily Dose of Inspiration – Listen to your Soul

Your Soul is your God Self!!  Pure and simple! In fact, you are not just a human trying to have a spiritual experience; rather you are God having a human experience!

Why don’t we understand it already?

Our problem is that we don’t realize that we have this amazing, absolutely loving, all forgiving God foundation of ourselves.  Instead, we feel cut off, abandoned, without worth, guilty, powerless, and so on that makes us miserable.  This condition is generally known in spiritual parlance as “duality.” Plus we may have some really outdated residual conceptions that we may have learned from other sources who would like to control us in their institutions by encouraging us to believe that God is really judgmental and punishes us “sinners” whenever He gets a chance—producing profound guilt, disconnect and general mayhem in our relationship with that God.But on the other hand, when you actually get to know that God—your own Soul, you find that It is the very most loving and supporting energy that you could every experience!

Soul can also have us face some seeming difficulty.  But that is because Soul wants us to change—and change to the extent that we no longer experience that situation as a block to calmness, happiness and ease.  So, hanging onto Soul in the midst of challenges and change is so very important and so very rewarding as we are healed of those blocks.  For instance, we may believe wholeheartedly that if we gained a certain position, got a certain mate, or made a certain amount of money that we would be really happy.  But in fact, we learn that as we relax all that hurtful striving, fear and worry to live comfortably with/as Soul—that is when our real happiness comes to us!  Living from Soul can then open the door for our very best work in the world to develop, the best mate to appear—or our own mate to change, or to receive satisfying prosperity in ways we couldn’t have predicted!  And then we can work with Soul to improve our lot in life as we work in full partnership with Soul.

Daily Dose of Inspiration – Choice

Daily Dose of Inspiration – Choice

Be Inspired..!!

There are two primary choices in life; to accept conditions as they exist, or accept the responsibility for changing them. I discovered I always have choices and sometimes it’s only a choice of attitude.Whatever you choose, you might as well enjoy  it. It is your choice. If you are satisfied with your job and you do not want to supplement or replace your income do not complain. You made that choice. You chose not to take “action” toward changing your life. Nothing will change unles YOU change.“Some people choose to live by complaining. Other people choose to live.”

Don’t be afraid to make mistakes. Challenge procrastination with decisive action. Remember that it’s not necessary to have all the evidence before you commit yourself. Sometimes it takes a leap of faith.

Daily Dose of Inspiration – Not My Problem

Daily Dose of Inspiration – Not My Problem

Be Inspired..!!

It’s not your problem, if others don’t think and feel the same way as you do. You should be least bothered about it. We care what others think when we seek validation to our thoughts. We seek evidence of the creation of our thoughts, and since our thoughts doesn’t manifest into reality immediately, we try to seek that validation from others. And if others don’t believe in what we say, we give up.

My question is WHY?

Why do you want to give up on a thought which has arisen within you just because someone else does not believe in it or does not understand it. Why aren’t we the centre of our own universe seeking validation from within, trusting the non-tangible intuition.

Intuition, gut feeling, know it in my bones are tools given to all mankind. They can be used to accomplish anything. We weren’t sent on this earth…

Patience and Manifesting: The Law of Attraction Requires Patience

There is a built in time delay on our requests to the universe, and a cancel order option too. You see the universe knows that sometimes people make wrong choices, so it had to include the time delay and the cancel ability when it created the law of attraction.

The time delay is in place so that random thoughts do not become a reality. Could you imagine the chaos you would have if every thought instantly turned into reality?

How about canceling requests? That one is easy, just request something different. You can only have a few requests working simultaneously so by diverting energy from what you do not desire into what you do will effectively cancel the request. Doubting that it will come to pass is also a good way to cancel a request, and often is the reason for…
