From the day we are born, we experience different things in life and meet different people. Based on our experience, we develop certain beliefs or have fear about certain things. As we grow up, our subconscious mind reminds us about those experience and keep the fear alive in our mind. That fear unknowingly ties us and restrain us from experiencing it again. I agree, I am not invalidating your fear and saying it’s wrong to have fear about certain things. But I ask you to loosen the grip of the fear and tiptoe to the unknown boundary. Surprisingly that fear might disappear as you experience the same things again in life. You might be able to cut off the string holding you right and breathe freely.
Life is like a novel. Every new year is like a new chapter in it. We have the chance to rewrite our character in each chapter. Even though, we can’t change other characters or events happening around us. We can reshape our character to be a new version. We can learn some new skills. We can cut off a fear that’s holding us back. We can be more compassionate towards other people. We can lend a helping hand to anyone in need. Let’s author our character from the scratch, the way we want. Take responsibility for the change, dream it, shape it.
When something is about to leave you forever, you will have more attachment towards it. That’s what I feel today on the last day of this year. Even though you keep on fighting with someone all day long, you will miss them when they leave. When I look back, I have the same mixed feeling about this year. With the pandemic, this year was weird in its way. But it was unique, we will never see the same year again. It has given us its share of smiles and tears. It was not just another year. It was remarkable to everyone for a different reason. We were able to do work from home all year long, not meeting anyone from our workplace and stayed at home without roaming anywhere and did zero shopping. We wouldn’t have thought of all this as reality before this year. We were able to differentiate the materialistic things in our lives and were happy spending only on necessary things. Even though it was not a favourite for everyone, I want to thank this year for giving us a new experience in life. I am glad that this year is there in my life story.
Being compassionate is not easy always. Compassion is a conscious choice you make every second in your life. When you are doing good in life and you are not facing any problem yourself, then there’s more option that you can be compassionate. when we are already struggling with problem, all our energy will be spend in overcoming that. Do you think you will have time to show empathy and be compassionate? But wouldn’t you be happy when someone show us compassion when we are suffering? Everyone can have this expectation, can we put small effort to bring relief to someone? I agree we may not solve their problem, but we can understand their problem and give them listening ears. Its actually win-win for both. You will get compassion from them in turn. No need to wait for someone outside to lift you up, we can hold hands of fellow person going through same situation and rise together.
We are almost at the end of the year. When we look back, this year seems very weird, many unexpected things due to pandemic to many people. For a second, Let’s assume someone was in a very difficult situation in life. They desperately needed help but even after trying a lot, they didn’t get any.
But somehow there was a ray of hope. Someone came as a saviour to lend a helping hand without a second thought. It might not be a big thing for them. But that help was very priceless to those who got it. Nothing can compensate for that help in a difficult time. When we close our eyes and feel the warmth of humanity, Shall we pledge to pass on the help to someone else in need? Needless to say, When you donate blood, you save life of someone in need. Let’s bring peace of mind to the suffering person by taking a small step from our end. Be a donor, Be a saviour.
Covid time has forced us to remember one very important thing in life. Everything is uncertain. We don’t have enough time as we think we have, there is no later. Let’s stop the meaningless race and try to think if we have left anything incomplete.
Did you forget to tell anyone how much you have loved them? Did we forget to solve any silly fight? Did we forget to revive any dying relationship? Did we forget to forgive someone? Did we forget to say sorry to anyone? Did we forget to feel gratitude for what we have? Did we forget to love ourselves? Did we forget to be happy? Did we forget to live our life till now? Before it’s too late. Try to sort out the things when you have time.
There are two kinds of unfortunate people in the world. One category doesn’t have anything they want and stays unhappy. The second category has everything they want still, they don’t utilize it and stay unhappy.
There is some hope for first-category people because they will work hard to get what they want to come out of their disappointment. But people in the second category don’t have the willingness to utilize the things they have. They won’t even give it to the needy in the fear of not having it, and for the same reason, they also won’t use it. They just keep on staring at the wasting things and stay upset.
Now the choice is yours to decide which category you are in and whether you want to come out of it or not. It’s easy to stay idle and complain about things going wrong. But do you dare to challenge it and change it for your good?
Do you love your job? Okay, you don’t have to answer immediately. Close your eyes imagine doing your job every day till you die and also your state of mind while doing that. Did you find your answer? Let’s assume most of us, don’t like our job. But it’s only 10% due to the job itself but 90% due to our mindset about it. Our ancestors who were working on the farm all day in the hot sun, were happier than us sitting in a comfortable chair. In our life, most of the time we are at work, doesn’t it make it necessary to love our work to be happy? Let’s have a fresh start, forget what you feel about your job till now. Just one day, try to think that you love your job and enjoy doing it. Then see the difference. Even after that, you didn’t like your job, its time to hunt for a new job which makes you happy.
Is your opinion really yours or is it formed by hearing someone’s? Be it your friend, family or any stranger in the society?
You hear your friend saying there is good restaurant opened in the town and it is awesome. After hearing all those exciting reviews, you take happy bites, assuming it to be good. It might not be good, but you pretend that as per your friend’s review. You take up the task of passing on same reviews to others. It goes on and on. It’s true for negative case also. Even though we like something, most of the time we agree to others when they say it’s not good. Even when you have to stand for your point alone, stick to it. You don’t have to pretend to be with others. Of course, listen to others, but when forming an opinion, forget the things you heard. Think about only what you feel about it. Stand Alone, But Stand for your point.
