COURAGE - THE GAME CHANGER

 

Every step taken forward with courage, will bring you closer to yourself. 


Courage - The Game Changer


COURAGE is the ability to deal with pain or fear in an unwanted or undesired situation which is difficult or dangerous. A person's ability to deal with such grim situations will define the outcome of it and their outlook towards life. 

Life is a stage, and at every stage of our life there are numerous circumstances, that requires to be dealt with COURAGE. Such as - 


It takes courage to fulfill your dreams.

It takes courage to step out of your comfort zone.

It takes courage to say no. 

It takes courage to explore new things. 

It takes courage to live the life, the way you want to. 

It takes courage to take risks. 

It takes courage to fight your fears.

It takes courage to be yourself.

It takes courage to not give up in life. And a lot more.


Courage to fulfill your dreams - If you have a dream, don't just sit there and think. Gather the courage to believe that you can succeed and put out all the stops to make it a reality. It's not going to be easy, but it's neither impossible as well. Sometimes all you need is, the courage to take a step forward which will take you closer to accomplishing your dreams. The hard work and diligence that you put in, sometimes it's not enough, sometimes with the hard work you also need the courage to fight against all the odds to convert your dreams into reality.

Fulfillment of dreams never comes easy. Every ounce of your breath, blood and sweat is required to make your dreams come true. Only a person who has the ability, belief, and courage with the intention of leaving no stone unturned, with their hard work and patience, can make their dreams come true. 


Courage to step out of your comfort zone - Stepping out of one's comfort zone is never going to be easy, but if you want to change your life for the better, then you have to step out of your comfort zone. Living in the same environment for years, doing the same work, you become accustomed to it, and then you resist to change, and that is what hinders your growth in life.

If you want to grow in life, you have to accumulate the courage that you have, and take a step towards stepping out of the zone you are comfortable in. Yes it's true that it's not going to be easy, but once this thought, accompanied with the action of coming out of your cocoon of absolute comfort, will change your life for the better. 


Courage to say no, when you want to say no - There are some people, who in spite of wanting to say no deep inside, still end up saying yes, because they feel that, they might hurt someone and they don't have the courage to speak the truth. But after saying yes, kindly ask a question to yourself, Are you satisfied with your answer and is it in anyway making you happy and content? I am sure your answer will be a no. And why shouldn't it be, because the yes that you said, was half-heartedly said, and something that isn't done or said whole heartedly, doesn't bring happiness and contentment. 

So, it's the best to say and do what you feel. If you want to say no, then say no, if you want to say yes, then say yes, instead of thinking about what the other person might feel, you should value your own opinion at first. This doesn't mean that you don't value other person's emotions, but it simply means you value your emotions as well. Because a yes that is half heartedly said, won't bring happiness to either of the two, then what is point then. Isn't it better to courageously say no, when you genuinely want to say no. 


Courage to explore new things - We all know this deep inside, that life wouldn't be boring and monotonous, if we start exploring new and different things in life. In spite of knowing about it, we still resist to it and don't make much efforts to explore the new. 

To know what's the best for you, you have to explore different things in life and that will only be possible if you gather the courage to do the same. Till the time you won't evaluate, and stick to the same things, how will you know what's the best for you and what's not. What if you are holding onto something that's not the best for you, because you don't have the courage to explore new things, you are missing out on something you are not even aware of. So, it's better to explore more and discover, what surprises the box of life has in it for you. You will only know, when you will open the box, so don't let it remain closed. 


Courage to live your life, the way you want to - The sooner you will realize that it's your life, and the only person who has the right over it, is you, the better it will be for you. Have the courage to not let other people's opinion and judgements wobble you from, what you want to do in life and how you want to live your life. Don't let other people define who you are and what is good for you and what is not, because only you can do that for yourself. 

Accumulate all the strength and courage that you have, and start living the life of your dreams. Do what makes you happy and start living your life the way you have imagined it to be. This whole journey of living your life the way you want to live, won't be easy, but with time you will realize that it was totally worth it. A little moment of courage today, will blossom into a beautiful life of your dreams, just the way you wanted it to be.


Courage to take risks - Taking risks doesn't mean that you will sure shot succeed at once. No that's not how it is, you might succeed at once or you might take years to succeed. Not succeeding and failing is a part of your journey and failure doesn't mean you won't succeed, it in fact will give you an experience of a lifetime, which will grow you into a better and a stronger person. 

If you want to grow in life, you have to gather the courage to take risks accompanied with the uncertainties. It's ok to have fear before taking any kind of risk. But don't let the risk of failure overpower the chances of success. You fail or you succeed, either way it will be a learning experience which will bring you closer to your goals and dreams in life, because you will end up becoming a more confident and a stronger person. And eventually with your courage and risk taking abilities, you will fulfill your dreams and succeed in life. 


Courage to not give up in life - In order to achieve something in life, giving up should never be an option. It is your courage and perseverance that will take you to places, in spite of the hardships you come across in life. Because that's how life is, you will irrefutably come across vicissitudes in life, but what will make you a winner is your courage to not give up in life, no matter how difficult the circumstances are.

Life is not always a cake walk, and you will indubitably come across adversities that will test your every single moment of your days of hardships, and it will be your courageous approach then, that will not let you give up and help you attain your goals and fulfill your dreams.  


Courage to fight your fears  - We are all scared of something or the other in our lives. We all have our fears to work upon. And it's absolutely natural. But the difficulty lies in overcoming our fears, and not everyone gathers the courage to get through the fear they have in their life. 

In every phase of your life, you will come across something you are scared of, but the opportunity lies in overcoming that fear and look beyond it, because till the time you won't face your fears how will you channelize your abilities and strength. The best of you will come out when you will accumulate the courage to overcome your fears and fight with them. Because the difficult situations you come across in your lives, makes you stronger and they bring out the best in you. So, you should do whatever it takes to overcome the hurdles of fear and fight, and become a warrior and win every battle you come across in your life. 


Courage to be yourself - It takes a lot of courage in being who you are and not what people expect you to be. In a world that we live in today, we are expected to be something that we are not, and that continuous ability to fit in, is what that is keeping us away from who we actually are. But what is the need to fit in and be accepted by the people as they expect us to be. 

Have the courage to be yourself, do what makes you happy, speak your heart out with no filter on, no matter what. A worthy life will be the one, that you have lived as your authentic self and not as someone who you are not. Love yourself and be you. 


COURAGE will help you bringing out the best in you because it will not let you give up in life and when you will learn to not give up in life, no matter what, with every passing day, you will see a better version of yourself and it will bring you closer to your goals and dreams. And then, a reality will be in front of your eyes, where you will be living a life of your dreams, overcoming all the obstacles. 

Sometimes a decision taken in one tiny moment of courage in the right direction, is all that it takes to change your life for the better. 

You take a decision -- Your life is changed. Sometimes that's how quick it is. 

So be courageous, sometimes that is all you need to change the game.

SHE ROSE LIKE A PHOENIX

 

Hello Lovelies!

This post is my dedication to all you wonder women, who in spite of the tribulations in life, chose to rise and shine. 


She rose like a phoenix


Dearest women, 

I hope you are doing great and life is treating you well. Do you even know how amazing person are you. And how fortunate are the people to have you in their lives because you are a true gem, who deserves to be treasured for life. You deserve every bit of love, life, laughter, respect, fulfillment of dreams and everything that you wish for. 

I know life hasn't been easy for you, you have come across situations in life which has left you into pieces. And bringing back all those broken pieces together wasn't easy for you. It took every ounce of your breath and blood to get back together standing stronger than ever. 

It's true what they say, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. And you my warrior, are the EPITOME OF STRENGTH. Because in spite of the volcano that erupted in your life, it didn't let you die, because you are a survivor and you know how to overcome the calamities that occurred in your life, and that's what makes you a wonder women, who didn't give up on herself, no matter how many skies have fallen on her.

You are a true believer who believed in herself. You are someone who didn't stop believing in herself even after being crumbled down. It was your belief that didn't let you give up, in spite of the adversities you came across in life. And whatever you are today is because of your continuous diligence and hard work, which has molded you into becoming a person, that you are. 

You converted the chaos in your life into the gleam of hope and shine. Even the most catastrophic conditions didn't had the power and ability to weigh you down. In fact they obliviously helped you in bringing out the best in you, because they were unaware of your ability of looking for the tiniest ray of hope and light, even in the darkest of nights. 

Your scars didn't weigh you down, in fact they validated the fact that you tried every bit of your effort and it was your strength and courage that didn't let you give up in life. Your scars were a proof that in spite of falling, you unrelentingly tried hard and you didn't give up on yourself and you made sure that you rose again, shining brighter than ever. 

In spite of the trauma and adversities, your resilience sets an example for others, to not give up in life no matter how difficult the situation is, giving up should never be an option. Facing the hardships in the face is what makes you dauntless. Yes it's true that the adversities did break you down, but you didn't let it destroy you, instead it molded you up into a stronger and a better version of yourself. 

They tried to pluck your petals but you didn't let them extirpate the roots, because they tried every possible way to break you into pieces, but you my warrior showed them what strong is, you didn't let yourself down. And these adversities didn't leave you shattered, they in fact made you blossom into a totally new and different person, who learned with her experiences to grow stronger and shine brighter, no matter how many ebb and flow came across her way. 

You took a charge over your life, instead of blaming others for the ruination caused, because you understood that it was a crucial learning experience for you with the uncertainties coming along. And what is going to define you, will be how you emerge from these vicissitudes, instead of falling apart. And it was your wit and patience that made you who you are today. 

Struggles in life are real and change is the only constant is life. You understood this very well, because you knew that life will not always be a walk on the cake or a walk on the ashes. Time keeps changing, so after the dark night, sun will rise the next morning, bringing a hope of a better and a brighter future ahead of you and this belief is what kept you going ahead in your life. 

Love is the most ethereal emotion one can have and it sets you free because it lets you be you. And the people who love you would not want you to change and love yourself less, in fact they try to bring out the best in you, because they will always motivate you to follow your dreams and with your accomplishments in life, adding a feather to your cap is what will make them happy. 

The people who love you, would always want you to shine bright and where your light was being tried to bedimmed, you chose to walk away in peace because that was the right thing to do because you chose not be get wobbled away from those, who didn't let you be you.


You chose to rise like a phoenix from the ashes and that's what sets you free. You chose to walk away in peace because you chose your pride and dignity over anything else and you knew deep inside that you didn't belong to a place that will bog you down and try to dim your light. You are magic and it's the light inside you that makes you real in this not so real world. 

You are one strong women, an invincible warrior, who didn't just transform overnight. It was a journey filled with hardships, obstacles, adversities and what not and it took every ounce of you in becoming who you are today. And the best part is, you are now happy and you have learned to love yourself through this journey. 

YOU ARE ALL WONDER WOMEN. And don't let a single person on this planet define who you are, because only you can do that for yourself. You know your true self. And no one better than you will know that. Be the author of your life and love yourself enough so that you don't leave any stone unturned in converting your dreams into reality. Because you are reborn from the ashes and you chose to rise like a phoenix.

As it's truly said, you have to fight through some bad days to earn the best days of your life. So be proud of who you are and keep rising high because you are meant to shine bright.


She is warrior and she knows how to fight her battles.
She knows how to turn her pain into power. 
She is you, and she is every women, who in spite of the impediments in her life, chooses to rise and shine. 

Lots of love to all you WONDER WOMEN. 

From me to you

BENEFITS OF READING BOOKS

 

READ! READ! READ!

SOMETIMES THAT IS ALL YOU NEED. 


Benefits of Reading Books


When was the last time you read a book ?

Does your daily schedule involves reading ?

Are you one of those people, who want to read, but have no time to read ?

Or are you one of those, who have never thought of reading a book ?

If you are someone who doesn't read, then you are missing out on something great in life. 

And I have more than enough reasons, to get you start reading. 


READING is one of the most essential part of our life and it should actually become part of our daily routine too, because it introduces you to a whole new world, where you can experience the ethereal beauty and magic, like no other world can ever make you experience. And if you want to experience the same, incorporate books into your lives. 

If you have time to watch movies on Netflix, watch videos on YouTube, surf the web and what not, then you definitely have the time to introduce books into your life. And thank yourself later for the same. 

BOOKS are one of the most influential things of all time. They are everywhere around you, be it your home, your workplace, book stores, railway stations, libraries, cafes, airport, all you need is a reason to start reading one. You might have noticed that, there are some people who are so much into reading, that they can spend hours with their books, and sometimes all they need is a book to get along with. 

Once you will know the BENEFITS OF READING BOOKS, you will then understand and imbibe the importance of reading and the devotion over it. There are myriad benefits of READING books and I have brought, enough reasons for you, to get you start reading. So, let's get started and crush this together. 


BENEFITS OF READING BOOKS


Reading keeps your brain healthy - You all know the importance of exercise for your body, mind and soul. Just how important, physical exercise is for your body, in the same manner you need an exercise for your brain as well and reading is the best exercise for your brain. You all know how important it is to keep your mind active, so that it remains healthy and strong and who doesn't want a healthy brain and a sharp memory. Are you one of those, who wish the same, start reading then, and get your doze of healthy brain exercises.

READING is so essential for your brain, that it helps you with a sharp and strong memory and prevents you from a weak memory, because according to the researchers, reading possibly slows down the progress of decline in the memory.  So, the next time you think of an interesting exercise to do, get a book and a cup of your favourite beverage and start reading. 


Reading helps in stress reduction - Stress has become a part of our life and it has become a big reason of concern in today's world. And you often ponder yourself over it, instead of getting rid of it. You are all so busy caught up with your day to day activity, be it at home or workplace, that you have actually forgotten to take some time out for yourself and give it to, what your brain needs the most from you and that is, mental peace and relaxation in order to reduce stress. And who doesn't want to get rid of stress. I'm sure you all want to. So, incorporate reading in your daily routine and make books your friend, because they will be the best stress buster ever.  

READING will introduce you to a world which is far away from chaos and the stress around you, once you lose yourself in the world of words of the authors, the characters and the stories. Once you are engaged, reading will pull your mind away from stress and worries in the moment and just by concentrating on what you are reading about, your tensions will drain away, allowing you to relax your mind and let the stress melt away and explore the imagination of the author. Because once you start reading your focus will shift from your stress, to what the author has to convey to you. 

Even, it has been scientifically proven that reading helps in the reduction of stress to a great extent. So, now you know what you have to do, the next time you are stressed. Get a book for yourself and start reading it and let it introduce you to a world, away from stress and worries. 


Reading makes your memory better - It's so amazing to know, the storage capacity of our mind is exorbitant. And in order to make our mind even more sharp and improve it's memory, reading plays a vital role in that. When you read a book, you not just read for the sake of it and finish the book,  there is so much that you can take away from a book; the lesson, the inspiration, the characters, the storyline, the learnings and what not. 

For example, when you read a novel, you will remember the characters, the relationship between them, the plot of the story, the background, the history related to it, and all the minute details of it. Because our brain is phenomenal, and it will store inside it, all that you will read from the book and imbibe it with ease. Be it any sort of a book, you will read and it will be stored in your memory.

That's how it is, the more you read, the better will be your memory, because when you start reading, it stimulates the function of your brain and improves your memory and you start storing more information in your brain. So, if you want to improve your memory, you know what you have to do, get a book of your choice and start reading it. 


Reading makes you more compassionate and empathetic - Are you someone who is really not good at empathizing with others and keeping yourself in somebody's else's shoes is the one of most difficult thing for you because you just can't empathize with people. Start reading then, because reading will help you understand people in a much better way and you will start understanding people, from their point of view and not just your own. 

The books that you read are written in such a way, that you start connecting yourself with the author and the characters in the story of the book. It builds a relationship between the characters written by the author and the readers, which leads to the reader becoming more empathetic, because then the reader steps outside themselves and starts empathizing with the characters they are reading about in the book.

As reading introduces you to a world, that helps you understand things from a totally new and different perspective, which moreover helps you look at the world and understand things in a much better way, with a wider aspect to it and also helps you understand people from their perspective and not only yours. If you start reading, you start feeling connected with the fictional characters of the book, then just imagine, if a book can make you feel connected with the fictional characters in it, how can it not make you empathize with those in your life and around you. That's how impactful reading is. 

As per some studies and researches on reading fiction, it has been proven that people who read fictions are more empathetic and compassionate. A good reason for you to start reading now.


Reading enhances your creativity and imagination - The brain that we are blessed with is so magnificent, that it can imagine anything and everything. And by incorporating reading in your daily routine, your imaginative and creativity skills will enhance. When you are reading, you are introduced to a whole new world which develops a lot of new ideas and possibilities in your head. For example if you are reading a novel, which has many fictional characters and the author has described every character very beautifully through his words, so your brain has the capacity to create the characters in your head and imagine them just by reading the words and picturing them in your head, through the words that have been written in the book.

When you start reading a book, you start imagining the characters in your head and by the end of the book, you can picture the entire story in your head, just through the words of the author. When you read a biography/autobiography of a person, whatever they share with you through their words, you can actually imagine the real person in front of your eyes and live their experience throughout the book. That's how reading enhances a readers imagination, not just in the books, but in real life as well. A person who reads becomes better at imagining things. So, if you too want to get lost in the world of great authors and their books, incorporate reading in your routine and introduce yourself to so many people and places through the world of books and experience by yourself, how ethereal of a feeling it is. 


Reading sets an example for others -  Something that is not considered good otherwise, but is considered to be great and that is being contagious. Yes reading is contagious. If you are parent and you want your child to develop the habit of reading from his childhood, then you must read as well. Because children are very quick learners and they will learn and imbibe what they will see. So, if you want your children to be good readers from a very small age, start reading to them and teach them in a way, where you can incorporate more and more books in their life.

Don't expect your child to read, while you are always on your phone, laptop and television. Set a good example for them, only then they will learn. If they will watch you read, they will learn from your good habits and start reading their books, because parents have the most influence on their child. 


Reading builds a stronger vocabulary and enhances your knowledge - The more you read, the better it is. Reading books is the best way to increase your exposure to new words. If you are someone who wants to learn new words, start reading and you will introduce yourself to new words every single day. 

Who doesn't wants to be, well-spoken, well-learned and knowledgeable, I think we all want to. Right! A very smart reason for you to start reading. In some aspects, a person with a brilliant vocabulary will be more impressive than the one whose vocabulary is poor, because the people who have good vocabulary are very articulative as compared to those who don't, and that's what outshines them from others. 

READING will give you a lot of information and knowledge, you are unaware about. In fact it's one of the best source of information and knowledge. The more you will read, the more knowledge you will gain in life and that will be so beneficial for you in every aspect of life. And it's your knowledge that nobody can take away from you, it will stay with you for the rest of your life. 


MORE READING -- BETTER VOCABULARY

MORE READING -- KNOWLEDGE ENHANCEMENT

THE MORE THE BETTER.


Reading motivates and inspires you - Sometimes reading a book will inspire and motivate you when nothing else will. There are enormous amount of books written, that will fill you up with zeal. The words of the author plays a crucial role in inspiring the readers. Like reading a true story, a biography or an autobiography about a person, their experiences, their journey, their struggles, the ebb and flow they go through in their life, and still achieve a lot, sets an example for the reader and inspires them too. Reading about the journey of a person, helps in motivating the reader, to not give up in life, and keep trying hard, no matter what comes their way. 

Because after reading a real life story, you will be inspired to achieve your dreams, no matter how many times you have failed before. Because reading teaches you that, failure is a part of an experience and it's a very crucial learning experience, where in spite of the hardships, you can overcome all the obstacles and keep moving forward and never ever give up in life. 


Reading helps you sleep better - We all have become so technology driven, that it has even hindered our sleep cycle. You all have this habit of checking your phone right before going to bed. And in spite of knowing that, it's not the right thing to do, you still do it. Instead of doing something that can help you calm down your mind, you end up surfing web or watch movies late at night. Sometimes it's fine to do so, but if this has become a part of your daily night routine, then it is muddling up with your physical and mental health and hindering your growth process as well. 

So, all you have to do is SWITCH.

Switch from staying on your phone, late at night to Reading.

Switch from working on laptop, late at night to Reading.

Switch from watching movies at night to Reading.

Switch from surfing web for hours in the night to Reading.

Switch from late night phone conversations to Reading.

Incorporate reading in your daily routine. Reading helps you calm down, melting down your stress, which brings you peace and with a peaceful mind, you will be able to sleep better. Make reading a habit. Right before going to bed, keep your mobile and laptop away and reach for a book instead, and then go to bed. Having enough sleep at night makes a huge impact on how you feel and how productive you will be the next day. 


There are various others benefits of reading such as reading improves your writing skills, it improves your focus and concentration, it improves your communication skills, it contributes to a longer life, it encourages positive thinking, boosts intelligence, enhances analytical skills, improves your mental health, and brings you inner peace. 

Once you will start READING BOOKS, you will explore the myriad benefits of it, because books are everywhere, and all you have to do is, pick one of your choice and start reading it. And LET THE MAGIC BEGIN!

ARE YOU THE RIGHT PERSON

 

Do you have a right person in your life ?

Are you the right person in someone's life ?


Are you the right person


You might be wondering why am I asking you these questions, that's because it's a very essential one and I want you to ask the same to yourself. Ask these two questions to yourself, because it lays down a huge impact on not just your life but also the lives of the people you are in. 

No one better than you can answer these questions for yourself.


~ If you have a right person in your life, you will know, because that person will listen to you and understand you in a way, like nobody else can, and they will even understand your silence when you have no capacity to speak a word. That's the kind of understanding and belief you have in each other, where silence speaks for itself. 

~ If you are the right person in someone's life, even then you will know, because you will listen to them, not just for the sake of it, but you will listen to them out of love, care and affection, and the understanding that you will have with them, will be unparalleled and you will know that it cannot be anyone else. 


You will mostly know that, this person is your right one, if they are -


~ Someone who not just hear you but listens to you. 

~ Someone you stays by your side through thick and thin.

~ Someone who never judges you.

~ Someone who you trust.

~ Someone who is not diplomatic with you.

~ Someone who is brutally honest with you. 

~ Someone who lets you be you.

~ Someone who is as real as they are, with you.

~ Someone who motivates you.

~ Someone who loves you as you are.

~ Someone you listens and understands you in a way like no one else can.

~ Someone who tells you on your face, if you are wrong.

~ Someone who never lets you give up. 


Your right person could be your mother, your father, your sister, your brother, your spouse, your mentor, your friend, it could be anyone, because you know that you can trust them and talk to them about anything and everything. 

Life is an experience and every single day, hour and second of our life is a new experience for us and other than us, there is that one person to whom we share about our lives experiences, be it the good ones or the not so good ones, because we know that we can trust them and we can count on them too, because they are our constant. 

It's truly a blessing to have a right person by your side for the rest of your life. Someone who you can talk to honestly, about anything and everything, being your authentic self, with no filter on and who never judges you no matter what, and stays by your side, through ebb and flow, because your right person rides with you in the journey of life in good times and bad. 

But sometimes people make the mistake of sharing their life experiences be it the pleasant ones or the not so pleasant ones, with others who are not even bothered to listen to them, because they just don't care, and forget about listening, they only hear to reply, just for the sake of it. Because not everyone you talk to is a dear one, not every acquaintance is a near one, not every friend is a real one, so don't make the blunder of doing that because you have to understand that not everyone will be concerned about you and those who are concerned for you, should be known to you.

You might not realize sometimes but your words are just a story for others, you are just another person in their life whose story they are listening to, just like that of others. And it's not their mistake, but it's you, who is at fault for trusting and expecting from the wrong person to lend you their ear, time and energy.

There are people in this world who don't even understand themselves, how do you even expect others to understand you in a way you want them to. So the only person who is wrong here for having such lame expectations is you, because you are at fault for choosing the wrong person to be your listener. Why should they even listen to you, and understand you, when they just don't care. Ask this question to yourself and you will get the answer. Because you should be aware of the fact that, who genuinely cares for you and who doesn't. 

People come and go, but the right ones will stay forever without the drama of making false promises. So don't open up to everyone, not everyone is your right person. Be careful about who you are opening up to. You don't need a thousand people in your life, just one right person is enough, on whom you can count on and who can count on you as well. 

Having that one person in your life to whom you can speak your heart out, is a blessing. It truly is. The problem is not in opening up to someone and speaking your heart out, we all need one constant in our lives. But the problem lies in choosing a wrong one to be your listener and having the expectation of being heard and understood by those, who just don't care about your well being. 

Be careful of who you open up to. Only the right people will genuinely care, the rest will just be curious to know without any genuine intention of being concerned for you, because there are very few people in this world who are worthy of your trust, and not everyone deserves to know you. So watch your words, when you speak and share something to others. Because WHAT YOU TALK ABOUT AND WHO YOU TALK TO, MATTERS. 


Here are some points which we all should keep in our mind, before we open up to someone. Such as -

Not everyone deserves to know you in person - Speaking your heart out is a good thing, but speaking your heart out in front of anyone is a foolery, because not everyone deserves to know you, your authentic self, your life, your vulnerable side, your weaknesses or anything that's related to you. Don't open up with everyone like they are your people, no they are not, remember this. Speak your heart out in front of only those who genuinely love and care for you and are concerned about you and your well being. 


Don't serve them food with desserts when they don't even deserve a glass of water - You often make the mistake of counting on the wrong people blindly and showering your love, trust and energy on those who don't even deserve a second of your precious time. Don't do that to yourself, instead shower your love, trust and energy on the right people, who truly care for you and your happiness. 


Be careful of who you open up to, you are basically wasting your time - Your time is precious, so stop wasting it on someone who doesn't value your emotions. You are not just wasting your time, but you are also wasting your emotions, trust, and energy on the people who are not your right one's, so it's a foolery to do so. 


Understand who your right person is - A person cannot be the right one for everyone obviously. If someone is not your right person, that doesn't mean that they cannot be right one for anyone else, they obviously will be the right one for someone else and if someone is your right person, that doesn't make them the right person for everyone. Because we don't connect with everyone on the same level, and our energies don't vibe with everyone the same way and with time we understand who our right person is. 

(Note - There are a few exceptions obviously, because some people cannot be considered righteous because of their actions and deeds).


Let's make a vow to ourselves that if we have a right person in our life, we will always love and cherish them and not take them for granted and thank god every single day for being blessed with one and if we are the right one's in someone's life, let's promise ourselves that we will stick by them through thick and thin and never let them down because we know that they love us and they count on us till eternity. 


Are you the right person in someone's life ?

Do you have a right person in your life ?

I started this post with these two questions and I'm concluding with the same as well because I want you all to contemplate on it. 

So ask these questions to yourself and let yourself know.

THE GAME OF LOVE


It's a poetry, composed in the state of being lost in the world of dreams.


The game of love


THE GAME OF LOVE

Walking down the lane

Thinking about the same.

Now that you are gone 

Nothing feels the same.

Stars don't shine the way they did

Moon just looks so pale.

Food with you tasted better 

Drinks just felt insane.

Now that it makes me ponder

Was it really love or was it just a game.

From me to you

- This Ecstatic Soul Writes


LOVE, it truly is the most divine feeling in the world. And there is no other feeling like love, because the emotions that it brings with itself are unparalleled. But sometimes, A LOT LIKE LOVE is actually NOT LIKE LOVE, and that's when you have to understand what it actually is, and not what you think it is.

Falling in love and the experience of it, is not always merry and bright. Sometimes, it might feel like a walk on the petals of roses, but sometimes it might also feel like a walk on thorny bushes. 

LOVE is a beautiful emotion, but sometimes you are so blinded by the emotions and feelings attached to it, that you ignore the difference between what is right and wrong and what is acceptable and what is not. You become so lost in your world of dreams that you happily ignore the red flags and you ignore yourself to an extend that, you lose yourself completely. 

You are so blinded by the emotions, that you overlook the storm that is right in front of you and then, even your mind and heart starts deluding you, because you are just not ready to differentiate and understand, what is good for you and what is not, and in this whole process you wobble away from the most important realities, that are your dreams, your goals, your worth, and yourself.

Don't sacrifice yourself for your love to an extend that you lose yourself completely and then later in life, you have to move mountains to search and find yourself again and get a hold on your life.

Yes it's true that moving on is not easy, because the not so good memories of the past don't leave you so easily and they always try to muddle up with your mind and heart. And sometimes just when you feel like, you have finally moved on, but then out of the blue, that one little thought hinders up the whole process, and makes it even more arduous for you to get ahead in your life. 

Losing a loved one is never easy and it's one of the most dreadful emotion to go through and things just don't feel the same after they are gone because it's difficult for you to accept that their chapter in your book of life is over. Even if it was an unfortunate one, you still don't gather the energy and channelize the whole situation and try to understand, that it was just not right for you.

But it's ok, you deserve your own time to accept things, understand and heal, and gradually overcome the adversities and become a better version of yourself, coming out stronger than ever.

What you can do during the process is, recall the memories (the unpleasant ones) of the past and realize what you were actually doing with your life then. Was that how you have dreamt it to be, sluggish and lifeless, with no identity of your own. Or you have had dreams to work upon and goals to accomplish for your present and future. Just close your eyes and reminiscence the days and ponder, was that really something that you deserved, a phase where you had to compromise with your self worth and where you had no identity of your own. Or you think that you deserve something in life that will make you feel alive and worthy, and having your own identity. 

You have to realize, what you were then, and what you can be now, that's when you will understand that it's high time for you to move on in your life and flourish, by choosing and loving yourself and converting your dreams into reality and staying happy and at peace. If not now, when? Ask this question to yourself and this realization will be a game changer for you. So, it's time for you to open your eyes wide, so that you can see, what you couldn't see with your eyes closed and understand that you deserve love, you deserve happiness, you deserve respect, you deserve peace and you are worthy of everything that's meant to be for you.

Your past has already polluted your past, at least now don't let it pollute your present and future as well. Your present and future lies only in your hands. Realize that, the most influential person in your life is you and don't ever handover the keys of your life in somebody's else's hand, keep them with yourself and live your life as you want it to. 

So, start by talking right to yourself. How you talk to yourself and what you say to yourself matters. Because words matter, and the words that matter the most are the ones you say to yourself. When you will start having a positive conversation with yourself, that's when things will change favourably and it will act as a benediction to your soul.

Not feeling at home and at peace around certain people is a sign that you are trying to get from the universe, so don't ever ignore those signs, because with the right people and at the right places, the energies feel just so right and you feel at home with them.  

And thank god every single day for what you are blessed with and also for ending the unpleasant chapter from the book of your life, because life is beautiful and there is so much to explore every single day on this ride. So what if you fall, that's when you will rise and learn and become stronger than you were yesterday. 


ESSENCE OF THE POEM - The first four stanzas are written in the state of being lost in the foolery of false love and the dreamy world where everything seems dull and incomplete without your love and by the end of it, in the last stanza comes a realization of the truth, pondering over the game of love


A REMINDER FROM ME TO YOU 

It was an unpleasant phase, not an unpleasant life.

Be in love, but don't be blind in love.

Take your time to accept, understand and heal.

Don't lose hope and have patience, even in the most catastrophic conditions. 

Love yourself.

This too shall pass.

And yes life goes on, come what may. 


Stay happy people, realize that you are worthy of a beautiful life. Let go of stress and breathe. 

RISE AND SHINE !

FRIENDSHIP


Hello lovelies!

This post on FRIENDSHIP is a sweet treat for all your friends and mine, wishing them a very Happy Friendship Day.


Friendship


FRIENDSHIP, it is not just a word but a colossal of emotions and feelings which turn strangers into family for life. And I'm so glad that I'm blessed with the best because I have the best people as friends in my life. 

Though writing down a post wouldn't exactly do justice to my love that I have for my crazy squad, but I still, take the opportunity to express my love through this poem today, which is not just a poem but my expression of emotions and feelings by dipping down my words into the inkwell of love that I have for my friends. 

With friends every day seems special, but today is a more special one because it's friendship day, a day to celebrate the special friends in your life. And there is no better day than today, to remind your friends what they mean to you and how influential they are in your life. I really hope through this poem, my readers will resonate with my thoughts and emotions for their friends as well and dedicate this piece to them as a sweet token of love. 


FRIENDSHIP truly is one of the most ethereal emotion we can have in our lives. And life without friends is definitely incomplete because we all need friends by our side, to ride on in this beautiful journey of life. Friends are like the flowers in the garden of life as they make our life even more beautiful and their presence is enough to bring elation and bliss into our lives.

Friends are like sanity in this chaotic world. With so much cacophony around they are like your favourite piece of music, you can listen to, for hours without getting bored. And it's never a dull moment with them around, because there is so much to converse about, with the never ending laughter sessions that fills your heart with euphoria bringing back the impeccable memories of the past and many more to come in the future.

Friends, they are like the rainbow in the sky, bringing serenity and peace with themselves and they are that pillar of strength in your lives who even in the most taxing conditions, don't leave you alone, and stay by your side, motivating you to chase your dreams and convert them into reality. 

Having friends in your life is like having the best cheerleaders by your side for the rest of your life, who will stay with you through thick and thin, and no matter how many ebb and flow come your way, they will stick around and will move heaven and mountains in cheering you up, bringing out the best in you and making you fall in love with yourself all over again.

Sometimes all you need is your friends sitting by your side to get rid of all the hassles, and it's their presence which converts the moments of melancholy into laughter. And when you get wobbled up in your ride, they stick around and pull out all the stops to enliven you making you feel elated.

Everything changes in this world, but true friends are a constant in our lives just like the sunrise, the stars and the moon, because we know that we can count on them, no matter what. And we have realized that people come and go, but our true friends and their madness is immortal. 

We all need those people around, with whom we can just be ourselves and speak our heart out with no filter on and no judgements in return and who understands us just the way we are. And it's such a blessing to have real friends in our lives, who understands and loves us just the way we are and let us be as organic as we are, in this not so real world. 

Friends in our life are the blessings of god, because god knew that, when sometimes they couldn't be around, it's these angels on earth in the form of humans around us, who are present to make our journey of life exultant. 

And most essentially, thanks to all our friends for their myriad love, they have showered on us and the unparalleled memories they have given us to cherish, for the rest of our lives. 


This post is a celebration of FRIENDSHIP, and friends who are the real treasures of our life. Be it my friends or yours, they are all equally special and this post is solely written to let them know what they mean to us.

Tag your friends in the comments section below and let them know how immense is your love for them. 

HAPPY FRIENDSHIP DAY PEOPLE. Have a great time with your FRIENDS.
