Let other people sparkle

Asking for help seems to be a sign of weakness, giving compliments means acknowledging that other person is better than you, asking for feedback seems such a vulnerable task. It indeed is easier than what it may seem like.

We can't and we don't live our lives alone. We share, We embrace. And it's so much more fun that way.

When we help someone rise up, when we help someone shine, when we put that spotlight on someone - we say to ourselves that we are greater than the meager ego and we rise above in true sense. Believe me - it's the best thing we can do for our self esteem.

I believe we all get our brightness from various sources - from the buddhist monks chanting, from the Indian priests reading the mantras, someone stranger who is passing all the love to the universe, someone meditating and praying to bring peace, someone hoping for success.

There is so much positive energy around. It just takes some self realisation and acknowledgement to harness that energy. So let's try to acknowledge someone's beauty everyday....and in turn open our hearts to receive some of that ourselves.

Do not believe...

Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it.  

Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many.  

Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books.  

Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. 

Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations.  

But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.

What do you do when you face a confronting situation ?

A few years ago, I used to retreat in. I would simply go quiet, really quiet but my mind will be in a huge turmoil. Confusion, uncertainty, disturbance.

Over time I realised, it wasn't in anyway making me stronger or better. It was eroding my energy.  The situation would keep worsening ( because I won't muster the courage to face and resolve it ) and I would keep hiding from own conscience.

This was one of the things refraining me from living life fully, from living my life the way I envisaged !

Over time, I taught myself to take small steps, build references to reinforce the belief that "tackling a situation, coming out and fighting it ( and this doesn't mean arguing like hell for sure...!! ) makes the situation far better than hiding in your shell".

It could simply mean saying ' Sorry ' to someone, giving them feedback or just telling someone something to protect your honour and harmony.

We live more fulfilled lives and get stronger when we stand like a wall and face the world.

Be clear in your own conscience and that's all that matters. People will judge you anyway, but dealing with a difficult situation will certainly make 'you' much stronger as a person.

I can vouch for that.

A house v/s a home

A small 'house' can be a 'match box' but a small 'home' with lots of love and positive energy can be a 'magic box'.

You are valuable

Indeed it’s great to dream and aspire but without forgetting that we are already great who we are. We have lived on this earth and have become a beautiful person – whoever you are, believe that you are beautiful.

And yes don’t let anyone make you think anything else about you. Refuse to listen and believe in those who try to insinuate the idea that you are not valuable or are any less than them.

Life is valuable and so are you - and it’s your responsibility to appreciate it because if you didn't, no one else will.

Stay beautiful !

( P.S - This beautiful bride is my dear friend Danielle, who is indeed beautiful inside out )

Something profound..

I heard something profound today which I wanted to share with you all. This statement is deeper than what it may seem when you first read it. It was -

"We are all where we are meant to be."

Year 2011

New year is here !

There will again be another year, few more months, days in those months and those days will be made of some moments.

My attempt surely will be trying to make those little moments beautiful and precious in some small or big way - because they will ultimately make up the whole year.

Let's all remember that. Wishing you all a joyous new year.
